My First time for this airline as it was the only direct flight. The flight was an hour late, but they boarded quickly. I did like the Chinese calligraphy on each side of the on the inside. This was a red eye flight. The were many odors from people coughing and sneezing. The Chinese have no clue on covering their...

Shandong airlines as far as I'm concerned are the worst airline going, checkin is always long and sometimes difficult. The cabin crew I have always found quite unhelpful and instead of giving you the food and drink they more or less throw it at you. On flights of an hour they have changed the hot snack to a small pack...

A small regional carrier, but quite efficient nonetheless. The big advantage was that this airline also used English in its announcements, in-flight instructions and documentation. The staff - from the check-in staff to the flight crew - all were very helpful to a first-time Chinese domestic traveler like me This is a HUGE advantage over other regional airlines in China,...

I took a connection flight from New Delhi to Guangzhou. I thought that I would have just one stop in Jinan. But the plane stopped in Kunming for crossing the boarder with China and there weren't ant info about it. It was freezing outside and they kept us in this coldness for 10min. When we finally got to the airport...

I booked my ticket for this flight on CTrip and got a good price. Seating is tight in Coach. Mystery meals were served and entertainment consisted of screens dropping down every 3rd row with sub titles. The flight attendants worked hard and were nice.

Flights were comfortable. Food was as expected quality but poor in taste. Disembark and re-enter in Kunming was useless and stupid process.
