“Do some research. The staff are great.”
Review of China Southern Airlines


Reviewed 29 May 2024

We had a transfer enroute to Beijing. The cabin staff and meals Sydney to Guangdong were reasonable but the transfer to domestic to Beijing was chaotic. The Dreamliner was a good plane with plenty of leg room in economy. Mid flight was a bit hungry as you got a meal when you started and then only an hour before you landed. The transfer plane was okay, just.

I was a little apprehensive to fly China Southern as I did not know a lot about them. The first part of our trip Sydney to China, the plane was a little old and very cramped with the A/C not working very well. The staff though were excellent and went out of their way to help. I had 3 more flights with the airline, 2 x domestic and one back to Sydney. Could not fault the airline or staff, the planes were newer, more comfortable (I am 195cm), and the staff on every leg were outstanding. The only draw back is the food is very average but it is airline food? Overall a good experience and would recommend and use again.

I was unsure what to expect after reading all the bad reviews. Were those people writing about another airline? The food was fine and quite tasty for airline food. It didn't worry me that they didn't serve wine and spirts. The leg room in economy was better than some other airlines I have flown with. the staff were very courteous and helpful. they would bring water and snacks if asked. I would recommend this airline. It is a budget airline and you pay for what you get.
