Although meals provided and service quality is rather good, but no personal entertainment panel provided. All you have is a small monitor dropping from the top to share among passengers. So it's kinda boring for 4 hours nonstop flight. Make sure you bring your own movies, games whatever if taking this flight.

My flight got cancelled and Shenzhen airlines stayed on the phone with me for hours helping me find a new flight. A woman even stayed on the phone with me in the airport to translate. I would fly Shenzhen again.

You definitely need the business class seat if you take flight longer than 4 hours. On Shenzhen airlines, you would get very good service and careful concern. Anyway, my mother highly appreciated their service on both trip.

Good airline. Not dirty or smelly like some other Chinese flights that I had been on. The service and booking was a breeze.

Booked roundtrip first for around 300USD, offering free pick up and drop off which is very good even on discount ticket. Delay by six hours on the return flight.

My two flights gave me on time departure/arrival and decent service, which I read was to be the case when making the ticket purchase. The airline delivered, and I'm happy for I have encountered/heard about often less than satisfactory airline performances from other carriers.

Took a short haul flight Shenzhen to Lijiang. Flight was good and service on the way out and way back was very good and friendly. I’d happily fly again with them.
