Not that nice and not the most cheerful, the East Asians

Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Direct flight from Ganzu to Paris
The cabin crew were not at all nice.

The baggage was right on the limit, down to the last gram.
Had to unpack the suitcase in front of 200 people in order to make it lighter, basically.
You're lost if you don't understand Chinese or English.

And they say we French are very bad at speaking English. It's going to be hard work, this.
They got the boarding gate wrong twice. We were treated almost like a herd of cattle.
Both the Chinese men and the women were not at all pleasant: the image of Chinese people as always laughing is a false one.

The meal was of limited quality; the coffee was horrible. The toilet left a lot to be desired. The headphones and entertainment systems were outdated. There was nothing interesting to watch, except in Chinese.

In short, I'll go back to using Vietnam Airlines or Etihad next time, even if it means paying more. They are extremely nice to passengers: attentive, helpful, polite and respectful.

Very disappointed with the Chinese.
