China Southern Airlines customer review

(United States)

1-15-13 SHA-SWA Economy. The flight was on time and full. Flight attendants were very friendly and courteous. They even acknowledged the Elite Plus Members by bringing them water in economy. Food served was hot and tasty. Showed a movie in English with subtitles. Even thought it was an outdated aircraft the attendants made up for that.

China Southern Airlines customer review

(Australia)

SYD-CAN-CDG return January 2013. Flew Premium economy and you get what you paid for. These flights were $800 per person less than QF economy. CZ websites states you will get 40% additional leg room which was true. Superior cabin service (noise cancelling headsets blanket pillow fruit and premium wines was false. Superior Amenity Kit - true exclusive check in - true extra baggage allowance - true. Entertainment SYD-CAN-SYD - no entertainment on A330-200. CAN-CDG-CAN - on demand good choice and family friendly A330-300. Meals - Plentiful and filling and better than most. Premium Cabin was half full and before take off we spread out we had extra leg room and 2 seats each on 3/4 of the legs.

Flight from Melbourne to Guangzhou China had no TV an older plane and bad leg room. Transfer to Paris with same airline had newer planes with TV comfortable seat and better leg room. Likewise on the way back. Beside the airline I will never do a stop over through China at any cost.

Melbourne to Dhaka via Guangzhou (return). Have flown to Bangladesh on every possible airline but China Southern is my new favourite. Pleasantly surprised by all aspects - service food etc and $500 cheaper than the others. By far best connections too (2hrs outbound 3 hrs return).

China Southern Airlines customer review

(United Kingdom)

London Heathrow to Melbourne via Guangzhou. Leg from London to China was on a new plane with seat back screens attentive and helpful staff. The meals are bizarre - my favourite was the meal of hot spicy beef noodles served with croissant and jam. Leg between China and Melbourne is a much older plane with TV screens showing the same 2 films on loop. Staff on this leg were much more abrupt and less eager to help. Loo's got very horrible on this leg. The seat comfort and size (economy) were same as any other long haul cattle class. For the price we were expecting far worse but to save a pound or two (or three hundred in fact) this was not a bad experience.
