"seats and space were better"

(United States)

Business Bangkok-Beijing-LAX. Layover in Beijing 5 hours. A voucher for a private room, wityh shower, issued before departure because of the long layover, was useless as upon arrival in Beijing all rooms were full. The waiting area was depressing and filthy. Flying Business we went to the Business Lounge. The recliners in the TV section were comfortable but again dirty. Out of a dozens of Magazines lining the wall there was ONE thin, weekend edition of the NYT in English. The staff was extremely unfriendly, unhelpful and rude. This Airline caters entirely to the Chinese Market. If you spend extra money for Business Class, do yourself the favor and go for another Airline. The money we saved was not worth the aggravation. PS The Business Class seats and space were better though than many other Airlines.

"no legroom, no room"

(Hungary)

The seats were good enough on our BUD-PEK flight, but on our longer (12h approx.) PEK-SYD fliught, it was terrible: no legroom, no room at all. Smaller than any cheap, short distance airlines' planes. It was a new plane, but the size of the legroom and room terrible. Another problem was that the remote control was in the arm of the seat, so when I put down my elbow, I sometimes accidentally pushed buttons. So it was not too comfortable.

"does not recline enough."

(United Kingdom)

Far too small, no space at all, no leg room, seat does not recline enough. Too close to partner and people walking past banging Into you. No room for your dinner or drink. No room for Trolley and when Trolley is coming along Air hostesses very rude, so basically if you required the toilet you would not stand a chance of getting out until they have totally disappeared. Horrible flight.

"reasonable 3-Star airline"

(United Kingdom)

The Boeing 737 seemed a bit tired and no IFE. Food was minimal on PEK-HRB, a bit better on HRB-PEK. On the flight PER-HRB I sat in seat 13L that does not have any window. Seat 33A on the flight HRB-PEK was better. Seats are not very comfortable, but it is only a two hours flight. A reasonable 3-Star airline.

"very good experience seat wise"

(United Kingdom)

Brand new plane and emergency exit row seat gave a very good experience seat wise. All other seats were very much standard fair for a short haul configured modern plane.

"seat is pretty standard"

(United Kingdom)

One of Air China's newer planes and the seat is pretty standard fair. Much better than their B777 we had been on before though there is less shoulder room. Seats have new large PTVs that although they claimed to be touch screen on demand ones where actually just working as 15 looped channels on our flight.

"seat pitch was good"

(Singapore)

Travellled from Shanghai to Beijing. Pillow and blanket (unwrapped) was found on each seat. No PTV on the domestic sector. Seat pitch was good (34") able to cross my legs without touching the seat in front of me. Seat cushion is fairly comfortable.

"better than expected"

(Singapore)

Seat SIN-BJS was better than expected. I think was a 34" pitch. For a mid-night flight of 6 hours I managed to get about 2 hours of shut eye. I'm not a good sleeper on flights. Was the seat fairly alright or the lack of PTV that there was nothing to do but sleep?
