"surprisingly good for price"

(United Arab Emirates)

Flew China Southern Airlines from Dubai to Auckland via Guangzhou. Not a bad airline for the price, however problems with the audio and seats not reclining dampened the experience somewhat. The lack of padding on the seats actually gives you more room to move than in other economy seats. I sat at the back, where the 4-seat center changes to 3 seats, and had a space next to me, which was good. I would recommend the Chinese meals, as the western food was pretty bad. You get pretty big glasses of drinks compared to some other airlines. Staff didn't speak much English, but were very friendly and helpful. Guangzhou not a bad spot to stop off, but only for a short break. On the return journey I was upgraded to premium economy. More legroom and slightly bigger seats, but not much else was different. Might try the business class next time, as the price is not much more than economy on some other flights. Stars were awarded for the economy seat. A no-frills airline, but surprisingly good for the price. Will fly them again.

"seats in decent condition"

(United States)

Seats in decent condition due to newness of A380. Headrest has foldable sides to keep your head neatly in place while you try to sleep. Seat bottoms are hard.

"recline was about normal"

(New Zealand)

Comfortable seat good size PTV screen. Recline was about normal and from what I could see the Premium Economy seats in front of us were very little different - maybe an inch or so more legroom - while that area was full we had lots of empty seats and could spread out and lie down!
