Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "The seating wasnt very comfortable"
Cons: "The food wasn’t that great and the seating was old."
Cons: "Decent budget flights. Short transfer time onto second leg was perfect and easy to follow. Only advice is not to use e.dreamers as agent, they add on a hefty fee unable to back out of. Lesson learnt!"
Pros: "Everything smooth and comfortable"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was very limited and of no interest"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive. Lie down seat"
Cons: "A little outdated for Business class in comparison with other airlines however for the price i would say it's worth it."
Cons: "User totally different airline than air China The seats are far too small for Western people"
Pros: "Entertainment was not good the TV did not work"
Cons: "The food and stalf very good"
Cons: "Our flight was severely delayed 6 hours from Heathrow, and that is where this horror story began. No one bothered to tell us anything. When we arrived in Beijing for our connection to Bangkok, we had to search out people for help, there was absolutely no one forthcoming with explanations. We were travelling as 2 friends, I was booked on one flight and my travelling companion on another 15 hours later! This only got changed when we explained that we both only had hand luggage! To then board the flight and sit on the tarmac, engines running, simply waiting, no explanations again!! Will we ever fly China Airways again?? If we could exchange our return flight tickets to that of another Star Alliance member we would."
Pros: "First off, the flight was cheap, really cheap, so for the price it was amazing."
Cons: "Planes was a bit old so the entertainment system was a bit temperamental, poor image and the wife’s controller had taken a beating, so was hard to navigate and adjust settings."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "No movie selection and nowhere to charge phones. On line check in was a nightmare."
Pros: "I was surprised that there were tons of in flight entertainment to select from. Crew was also very nice"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfy and one of the meals was bad"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "No power sockets to charge phones, Entertainment selection and functionality completely outdated, just managed to watch 1 movie before I gave up trying. The air hostess tried to help but mentioned that it’s just slow. During dinner service I asked for a second glass of wine with my meal but was refused as only 1 glass of beer or wine is allowed per passenger and flight, which I found very stingy as an airline and irritating from a customer care perspective."
Pros: "the timliness the processing at beijing the helpful checkin people at the akl airport. The baggage delivered promptly and without breakage. The crew worked hard to ensure"
Cons: "the shops at air port are expensive the toilet sinks were slopping and did not drain well the airline apologizing for the lack of food choice before each service pl advise airline to ask for choice at the check-in or at least make a note of the preference through email, makes life easier for them and the passengers. announcements were in chinese and the english ones were not very clear . it would be good if the announcements also came up on the seat screens CLEANLINESS WAS AN ISSUE with the overhead lockers not clean to the pull up table and magazine spaces not clean"
Cons: "Customer service on the flight was poor ."
Pros: "Wide bed and good support for good sleep"
Cons: "Not a big movie selection"
Pros: "The dumpling. The on board staff were very pleasant and had a lovely glass of coke cola with ice bit small though."
Cons: "After 30 hours of travelling and no problems my luggage got lost on my last flight. I still haven’t got it yet, my medication was In there and it has ruined the whole trip for me. I am so upset with service I can’t begin to explain the pain I am now suffering. I have no clothes other than what I’m wearing. I have no toothpaste or toiletries. I feel ashamed of myself as I have dirty clothes on. I am truly not satisfied with my service. I have been let down to the highest order."
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Food and drink options are limited"
Pros: "Love the space of airplane"
Cons: "It was not a pleasant stay in Beijing airport... The staff were very rude and not helpful.. I had to fight for the wi-fi code and I had to fill out a form, for a pass to get out if the airport... I waited over 90 mins in line, only to be told I was I the wrong line, in the first place ??? !!"
Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "The flight was cramped up and not clean"
Pros: "The lovely crew."
Cons: "Transferring at Chengdu airport is not a good experience."
Pros: "This flight was a codeshare bw Cathay and China air, which lead to confusion on the ground at Beijing (did we book at Cathay or at Air China - even the Air China staff did not know initially) Small seats, very average food, entertainment system not up to scratch in terms of being easy to use and responsive. Relatively inexpensive flight but I would Stump up The $ next time and make sure I’m flying with someone of a higher standard"
Cons: "It turns out that we had to ask for a seat that is near a baby bassinet beforehand. Like it’s not obvious from the tickets that we’ve purchased that we are boarding with a baby. The truth is that Air Asia prefers to sell those seats instead of making sure that you would be comfortable with a baby boarding."
Cons: "No personal entertainment but a lot of leg room"
Pros: "My previous flight was delayed so I missed the plane I was scheduled for, but Air China found me a replacement flight that was only a couple of hours later. Despite the extra passengers from the delayed flight the plane still had a few empty seats and I was able to take an exit seat for extra legroom (I'm 6'5"), although I will still upgrade in future."
Cons: "On the flight out the plane was really warm, so this time I dressed on that basis, but the flight was really quite cold. I guess I'll have to figure out a changable set of cloths in future."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly throughout, trying to find out what we should do about missed connections during the flight, I was able to move to an empty exit seat (I'm 6'5") so the delay was relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Well we were delayed for an hour and missed connection as a result, but you can't really blame the airline for that."
Cons: "Food to be improved"
Pros: "The staff, from airport to plane, were brilliant, the food was initially surprisingly nice, but by the time I'd been in transit long enough for the third meal, I just couldn't face it."
Cons: "The Seats were OK and the legroom was pretty bgood for economy, but the extra headrests on the larger Heatthrow/beijing aircraft came in at about shoulderblade height and made finding a truly comfortable position impossible. Definitely one to look at the price step ups for better seats in future."
Cons: "I couldn't watch movies on the flight all the writing was in Chinese so the flight was boring"
Cons: "Horrible communications! Requested an upgrade and was told the system was down then on return trip requested upgrade again and was told that it had to be done at check in which means returning to main terminal by tram and going through security again as the girl at the boarding desk returned to playing with her phone. There was more than 50% first class seats unfilled, good news for investors. On the tv monitor we were watching our final approach as we bypassed the airport and made three 360 degree turns 50 miles out for 30 minutes and not one word from the Captain what was happening, very nerve racking. Never fly Air China again!"
Cons: "Little movie options"
Pros: "Staff were quite helpful and both flights were on time - very cheap which made the things I didn’t like acceptable"
Cons: "There wasn’t really any legroom (I’m about 1.74m) or much comfort and the plane itself was really loud - not used to that from long distance flights. Two out of four meals were okay."
Pros: "Unedable food"
Cons: "Booked beyond recognition flavourless"
Cons: "Not a single snack in the plane!"
Pros: "Everything but entertaiment on board. Very vas audio."
Cons: "No ability to charge smartphone or laptops"
Cons: "cannot access the reservation or checkin at Air China site"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Food was very good. Good variety and plenty of vegetables. Staff very courteous."
Cons: "Restroom was Healy used. Should have been monitored more closely. Was not clean enough when I used had to clean myself before I could use. But I used to be a health inspector so maybe my standards are to high."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Two hours on the deck at Astana waiting take off in steaming humidity and not a word from the staff. They looked blankly at me when I asked to know what was going on. And then they told a bald faced lie. They failed in the service of a pre-ordered mea. in general a pathetic excuse for an airline."
Pros: "Food was good. and more leg room. Also gave you a pillow and blanket. Of course the flight to China was a much larger airplane a Boeing 747, where flight to Sfo was a 737-800 and a smaller Air bus. All my flights made it to destination on time. Or close to it. You should plan on at least 1&1/2 hours between transfers. SFO was under staffed at security long lines, and empty desks. Beijing & Soul airports had smaller lines. The Visa free transit at Beijing worked well."
Cons: "Long time through customs and security especially when transferring from one plane to another. We had carry on luggage but still had to go through baggage claim and exit before transferring to the next flight."
Cons: "No entertainment because no individual screen for movie"

Cons: "The bus transfer to the terminal was a bit chaotic"

Cons: "No food. Major delay without announcement"
Cons: "Cebu Pacific has to be the worst airline I have ever flown with. Boarding alone was so disorganized. People were trampling each other. The flight times changed twice. I lost over $200.00 with no refund. Said I could get credit. Yeah, like I would ever fly with them, again."
Cons: "The luggage took ONE HOUR to come out after the flight!!!"
Cons: "They should improve tge delayed flight"
Cons: "We were delayed by 7 hours. The ground staff did their best. They gave some snacks which I'm sure Filipinos like but were not to my tastes. Sitting on a hard floor for 7 hours with nothing to eat before a 3.5 hour flight is not my idea of a good day!"

Pros: "Price and convenient"

Cons: "There should be a non-applicable button, since there’s none....I should just pick one star."
Pros: "Nothing much. The flight crew were ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Boarding and departure lounge area was utter chaos because the Cebu Pacific staff were not clear about which flight waa boarding. The plane was horribly cramped. Extra seat rows had been installed to get more seating on the plane. That might be ok for the average 5'4" Filipino, but at 6'1", I literally could not fit my knees behind the seat in front of me. As a result I had to twist my legs into an uncomfortable position for 2 hours. Not fun."
Pros: "In time departure"
Pros: "At least no gate change or delay..shock shock"
Cons: "Checkin as usual was understaff and slow....agent refused to enter our getgo numbers or change our seat assgnment as had been done in the past. Refused to orint boarding pass because i had on my phone....i dislike this and want paper backup! Speaker system for gate announcements at term 3 is the worst! Boarding is always bad but now a new system to read tickets is worse than ever! My knees touch the seat in front it is so crammed...at least short one hour of discomfort."
Pros: "Very clean"
Cons: "Most of the Cebu Pacific flights feel like a greyhound bus"
Pros: "Nothing about lastminute.com"
Cons: "Lastminute.com rebooked my outbound flight two dat past the original booked date then left the return flight the same which meant the return was before the outgoing. Then to make it worse they tried to charge me additional 80 pounds to change the return ticket."
Pros: "Great customer service! Checking in was very fast!"
Pros: "Staff was helpful pre boarding"
Cons: "There was absolutely no ventilation while on ground. It was so hot on the plane too!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice new equipment A321 and FA always nice"
Cons: "Baording is always a cattle call, they attempt to go by rows this time but still a mess of crowding and shoving. The gate announced boarding and everyone jumped, then they tried to refuse those in line making it even worse. Poor gate agents!!! Then as always they blame manila teaffic for delays....so irritating. Almost an hour late...no reason it was sunny at both airports and this schedule is set weeks ahead and they still claim heavy traffic..ridiculous"
Pros: "Staff's communication and it was on time"
Cons: "Too cold in the aircrat"
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "Seats very small food disgusting ,they don't offer you any thing on board"

Cons: "Everything is also no good."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Lavatory was spacious. Airplane was clean."

Pros: "Was kindly moved to exit row after inquiring at checkin..very nice agent. Very comfortable and great legroom...unlike the hideous crammed in rows behind. Boarded early wjich is unusual for this airline to ever be on time...then sure enough 30 min delay due t9 manila traffic?? This country needs a new major airport or updated traffic control and another runway! This pilot had the smoothest landing...the last few flights have been awful landings, hard and scary"
Cons: "Unsmiling flight attendants...what has happened? The ladt two flights ver sober looks, never smile?"
Pros: "Everyone is profession and the food is great. The value is spot on!"
Pros: "So delayed!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "cabin crew was excellent, very friendly!"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers and loading of cargo delayed departure by 1h, no communication from pilot; seats on A330 were worn out, metal bar in seat cushion could be felt, making the flight very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, waiting in an overcrowded space with no aircon (and it's a tropical country). They kept on saying to wait for next announcement (but no screens, just a broken voice). Announcement were vague and couldn't understand when the flight was supposed to depart."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Hidden fees..Baggage fees are ridiculous..Just skip this airline,and pay the extra for,Philippine,Air..The price is really the same"
Pros: "No hassles check in"
