Ventajas: "excellent flight service and free transfer hotel is great"

Desventajas: "Las azafatas son un poco groseras."

Desventajas: "The plane temperature got steadily colder. Was a bit hard to handle."
Ventajas: "Flight was on time and arrived early"
Desventajas: "When we arrived most of the passengers ignored the fact that the fasten seat belt sign was still on and started crowding toward the exit, cramming against the people in front. I wish they would have been reminded to be patient and wait their turn to get off."
Ventajas: "Cabin crew is helpful, & I noted they are especially attentive to their elderly passengers & those needing assistance."
Desventajas: "The food is absolutely disgusting. And this from a national airline of a country renowned for one of the world's finest cuisines. It's an awfully long flight & little to eat. Even the packaged peanuts were poor. Also, deplaning at Guangdong requires use of portable stairs & bus to terminal - they don't use the jetways! This is a pain in the butt - and knees for those with any mobility issues."
Desventajas: "Could not reserve a seat ahead of time and the website was impossible. But once on the flight, all was good. But I agree with others that the seats are very hard. This was business class and a 15 hour flight."
Ventajas: "No frills, great price, tiny seats for skinny people that goes with price. Food was actually great, nyc to GZ route, gz to nyc food not so good. Great planes. Good sexy non usa international movies. The price is right and the cool thing about most Chinese airlines is they don't charge so much if any for return date changes as long as their is room"

Ventajas: "It was clean. Also the media selection"

Ventajas: "We got moved up to Business Class on the 15 hour flight from JFK to Guangzhou. That was awesome. China Southern put us up in a very nice hotel because we had a 10 hour layover in Guangzhou, food included. Aircraft was new. Very impressed."
Desventajas: "Had to declare onto the tarmac and get a shuttle to the airport when landings in Guangzhou. Not enjoyable. Could be very stressful with a short connection time."
Ventajas: "I was in business class. The lie-flat seat was pretty good with lots of space for storing my things. The crew was efficient but not particularly friendly. The bathroom was kept very very clean."
Desventajas: "The food was mediocre to poor. They forced me to turn off my computer one hour prior to landing."
Ventajas: "There were unused economy comfort seats on the flight and we gratefully received a complementary upgrade."
Desventajas: "bad China eastern company on return trip from Shanghai"
Ventajas: "Seating was good and comfortable"

Providing any amount of beverages we asked for as well as adjusting cabin temperature and providing with extra blankets. Nice selection on entertainment system with no hassles to make It work. Always smiling. Constantly cleaning up trash and the bathrooms. One of my most enjoyable long distant flights ever!"

Ventajas: "The entertainment"
Desventajas: "The food was lame"
Ventajas: "Comfortable seats, great food, nice collection of movies. The flight attendant was very pleasant and accommodating . Great airlines."
Ventajas: "The ground staff were also very helpful."
Desventajas: "The flight was so freezing that I (and all around me) had to wear their winter coats during the flight. My TV did not work and each meal I was served was not what I asked for. I also had to ask repeatedly for water before receiving it. A nice flight attendant lent me her iPad so that I could have some entertainment during the flight. Will avoid China Southern airlines in the future."
Desventajas: "trip management thru airfare.com and china southern was terrible. I will not be using either service again. I wasn't able to manage my flight on the china southern website of choose a seat. they lost my bag. it was a timely flight confirmation process. I will not use airfare or china southern again."
Ventajas: "Crew ware kindness with smile"

Ventajas: "Was prepared for the worst and was actually a good airline."
Desventajas: "English announcement can be improved"
Ventajas: "It was a really smooth flight and comfortable. the flight attendants were very nice."
Desventajas: "The food isn't so great, but that's not that uncommon. I was asked to close my shade several times from the very beginning of the flight except that I was wide awake and had deliberately asked for a window seat so I could look out. 15 hours is too long to fly in a darkened environment and especially when boarding in the morning after a nights' sleep. Perhaps handing out eye masks for folks who want darkness is a way to respect the needs of all passengers."
Ventajas: "Great movies!"
Ventajas: "My upgraded seat although had to pay for it, otherwise I was going to sit in the middle row in a section with about 50 small children."
Desventajas: "I had an 8 hour layover at JFK and the China southern counter didn't open until three hours before the flight took off. So I had to sit outside of the terminal waiting for them to open. Couldn't even get to s lounge as I had no boarding pass. (I tried several times to call earlier in the week and the phone system at China southern is terrible - was on hold for a long time every time then the operators were not helpful at all). I waited in the check in line for an hour and a half. Several times I witnessed people going in the business class line and they clearly were not in business class but they allowed them to just jump the line anyway. (I realized this once I was finally able to ask for an upgrade - not until I got to the gate counter because the guy who checked me in didn't understand my request, poor English - and once on the plane there were very few people in business class and I know those people who had jumped the line were not among them ). Very disappointed with the whole process."
Desventajas: "Worst airline"
Ventajas: "El avión muy moderno, la puntualidad."
Desventajas: "El espacio entre filas, un desastre."
Ventajas: "Cheap and fast"

Desventajas: "The food was uninspiring, to say the least."
Ventajas: "My screen on the first leg didn’t work too well. It would turn on and off on its own, but since it was an overnight flight and I was tired, I slept most of the way so didn’t complain. Just had to dim the screen for the times it would turn on automatically while I was trying to sleep. 2nd leg had"
Desventajas: "I understand it is a Chinese airline, but I wish there was more English spoken, or the flight attendants not assume everyone who is Asian understands Chinese, especially since the flights are international."

Desventajas: "I don’t have anything bad to say. The service was really good."
Desventajas: "Pesima comida"
Ventajas: "The actual flight was really fantastic, food was warm, flight was relatively comfortable/smooth, entertainment at least for me was good, since they had a decent amount of Japanese music to choose from, and the attendants were friendly and nice. Everything was 100% on time as well. I could complain more about tiny tiny things, but for $500 I felt I got a lot better service than United on an equivalent route."
Desventajas: "Seats were slightly stiff, but not too bad. Only bigger issue was upon boarding all the people lined up in a 100+ yard line and caused a bit of commotion instead of waiting for their seat numbers to be called and forming a small normal line. This is in no way the airline's fault, and they tried to make it work in spite of the people doing it, but as a Westerner this was confusing."
Ventajas: "Price and crew were great"
Desventajas: "Boarding process, choice of movies, leg room"
Ventajas: "Business class with flat beds and the forward compartment was very comfortable and cosy"
Desventajas: "Food Service Limited entertainment"
Ventajas: "No entertainment available No food offered It was a short flight from Shanghai so was a typical experience"

Ventajas: "Me gustó que al ser un avión más pequeño, había filas de asientos sólo para dos personas, por lo que si viajas en pareja, es muy conveniente."
Desventajas: "Que las opciones de alimentos no fueran exclusivamente comida china para los vuelos internacionales."
Ventajas: "Comfy seat and caring flight crew."
Desventajas: "They served dinner at 2 am just after takeoff and breakfast 11 hours later."
Desventajas: "El clima de la cabina estaba muy frio y luego ya no aguantabamos el calor. Muy malo"
Desventajas: "Mi maleta no fue subida al avión y llego en más de un dia despues"
Ventajas: "Great price. More or less on time. Reasonably comfortable. Good entertainment. No real problems."

Desventajas: "Flight attendants were rude, pull earphones right out of socket without a word. Terrible manners"
Ventajas: "flat beds, extensive menu and great service"
Ventajas: "For the price, I would say it was a very solid flight. Other options cost twice as much and I'm certain they weren't twice as good. Food could have been a little better, but again at the price, there is nothing to complain about. Buy a salad or a snack for the flight with all the money you are saving. The entertain was good but not as extensive as some of my other recent trans-pacific flights."
Ventajas: "Personal atento. Siempre haciendo lo mejor para que te sientas bien."
Ventajas: "flat bed"
Desventajas: "La tripulación no fue amable conmigo porque yo no sabía hablar chino y ellas no hablan bien inglés. No hacen el menor esfuerzo en ayudarte y ofrecerte algo de comer que no sea esa comida horrorosa! La comida es Terrible! Jamás en mi vida, en ninguna clase o compañía me ofrecieron una comida fan asquerosa. Llevar lonchera!"
Ventajas: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Desventajas: "The ground support personnel were surely, obnoxious, and clearly untrained in their own policies. There was massive confusion in JFK for the 1st leg of my trip (NYC - Mandalay) regarding the availability of my visa on arrival. China Eastern argued that it was not available, and nearly did not let me board my flight. They were completely wrong, and made my life miserable in the process. Because of this, China Eastern refused to check my luggage through to my final destination (though this has been done many times before), and THEN informed me in Kunming that I needed to pay AGAIN for my extra piece of baggage, though they had already charged me for it in New York. Do yourself a favor and never do business with these creeps - there are too many other available options for air travel."
Desventajas: "Flight was late by 2 hrs so I mussed my connection"
Desventajas: "It was just delayed without any announcement."
Desventajas: "China Eastern airline is the least friendly and irresponsible airline that I have ever used. The crews completely screwed me up on the sequential travel itineraries until the last minute."

Desventajas: "retrasos injustificados en transito, pese a tener tiempo no me dejaron pasar"
