Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

CHINA SOUTHERN is the most pathetic and Genuine Third Class Airlines. Stay Away!!!! We were travelling to Asia from Australia and the entire journey had been really frustrating. China southern airlines don't provide assistance in situations like sudden cancellation of flight.
