Hi all


I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their experiences (good or bad) flying long haul with China Southern.  I'm thinking of travelling to Europe later this year and their flights seem to often end up the cheapest option.  Obviously I have never flown with them so I have no idea what I might be letting myself in for.


Thanks for any feedback

My girlfriend flew with them to fly to Nanjing though Guangzhou a couple of months ago. No problems, arrived on time and no lost luggage.

It's a budget airline. It was what I expected of one.


Don't expect the highest of service, but it does get you from A to B, so in that regards they're not bad from my experience.

I am flying them for the first time later this week, CHC to Guangzhou. If you are in transit in Guangzhou for more than 6 hours you get a free hotel room.


I shall report back in 2 week when I return.

Used them a couple of years ago. Just like any other economy class seat I've been in. They served Asian style food. The service from their staff was pretty good.
