See what everyone's saying about Air China. Each month we're awarding prizes for the best reviews, so remember to review your flight when you return...
I tried this new business class from Shanghai to Beijing, very impressive. The only problem is the seat is very low/sunken in which makes it difficult when I need to get up. Fantastic selection of movies including very recent Italian movie!!!
First time flying with Air China but was pleasantly surprised. Went from PVG to CDG- good flight overall.
I hear Air China is phasing out their B737s, and they should because the aircraft I took from Hong Kong to Tianjin on November 30 featured shabby (but neat) interiors, which doesn't fit their image as the flagship of a global economic powerhouse. The business class product was showing a lot of wear and tear, what more the seats in economy. (I didn't bother to look.) If there was anything to praise in the flight, I would give high marks to the flight attendants who tried their best to make their customers as comfortable as possible during the two hour and some flight. With the lack of a proper inflight entertainment system – meaning the personal TV monitors that I have gotten so used to – there was really nothing much to do than catch up on much needed sleep.
I fly London Beijing route every two months, on Air China's business class most of the time. It's for work so it's the choice made by the company. We used to fly BA, but BA was out of favour in recent years because of its strikes, lack of available/affordable business-class tickets and bad service.
LIMO SERVICE: This is the best part - Air China offer free to/from home limo service if you buy business-class tickets. 50 miles is the limit.
SEATS: I always choose 12D or 12H - there's no first class on this flight so business-class section is already at the front. You can even meet and chat with co-pilot if you use the toilet at the front. I don't like the very first row as the curtain may disturb you when people walk by. You can lie down 15 degree flat, which is OK for me to sleep for 5-6 hours out of 9-10 hours.
FOOD: The biggest disappointment was the food. The Chinese menu was definitely better than the Western menu, but I still miss the standards of BA business class meals. The wine list is not as fancy as I want it to be, so I normally drink non-alcohol beverages.
SERVICE: The girls on Air China are good-looking and they are nice to me.
IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT: The entertainment system was not good. Not many choices, but my 7-year-old nephew liked the children movies.
OVERALL: The food should definitely be improved, but it's by far the better choice if you fly to Beijing.
