Horrifying.



Been to 50+ countries and this is the most horrifying experience I've ever had. I was unfortunate enough to have been trapped at Beijing on the 5th...

Pretty good for a short flight



So there I was at the Beijing Airport after an 11-hour flight from Paris CDG and I was happy to have finished the longest leg of my trip to Hong...

A flight without incident…almost



Takeoff from Manila was scheduled for 6:30 am. There were three pilots who seemed somewhat young, and a small flight crew for this 737-800 without winglets, which was almost 10 years old and weirdly painted in "Silver Peony" style.

Boarding was done by zones. The organization was flawless and it went quickly. Then, while the passengers were getting settled, there was a period of confusion where the head cabin attendant was especially tense, frantically running up and down the center aisle and the flight attendants were beaming – strange on Air China, a smiling stewardess, right? It turned out to be about the mother of a Filipino family and her daughter who was doubtless mentally handicapped. We learned that the latter had endangered the security of the flight. She had tried to open an emergency exit. Really? She was actually seated far from the security exits. They were trying to expel the poor woman who was asking for help from the other passengers. The cabin attendant yelled, "Sit down immediately," when a passenger tried to understand the situation.

After about thirty minutes, the woman and her daughters were expelled from the plane military-style. Roll-out, takeoff, no in-flight entertainment, everyone slept, turbulence, straight flying, re-turbulence and landing. Air China remains a good airline, the food is OK and the pitch was generous for a single-aisle plane.

Good flight



Travelling from Shanghai to Beijing I used for the first time the Hongqio airport. This airport is mainly used for domestic flights but is modern. Check in was fine. Security control pretty long. The waiting area was big enough and with a nice view on the planes.

Flight was full but we had enough space for the legs and we received a small snack. Arrival on time which is unsual for this connection.

Simple but efficient



Rapid boarding onto an Airbus A321, the comfort was far from that of a Boeing 777-300 but it was fine for a 3-hour flight. There was a long wait...

A good quality/price ratio



The planes they offered us were well maintained A320s and A330-200s.
There was a strong feeling of safety and efficient communication, which I was able to test in on the return flight when the plane landed during a typhoon in Osaka, whose airport was located even closer to the ocean.

The main drawback remains the legroom, which was also on a seat that was a little out-of-date, as well as an individual television that was also showing its age.

However, the variety of programming offered, including recent movies, and choice in French, provided in English and Chinese, made you forget about the age of the hardware.

There were cameras placed in different parts of the aircraft, and the exterior was also accessible.

The meals were good and the staff was pleasant, accessible and bilingual.
The place settings they provided, which were a little small and flimsy, might have been improved.
This was a trip with some turbulence due to the weather, but still pleasant.

Beginning at, our departure, the airline avoided flying over sensitive regions such as Ukraine.
