Q: What is the best Chinese airline?

Wonder what foreigners think is the best Chinese airline and why. I use Hainan airlines often, and I find the service is good and planes leave not too late.

 

Do you adapt to food on airlines too?

If you follow the startrax airline rating guide (global airline ranking system) Hainan Airlines are the only 5 star airline in China (Cathay Pacific HK is also a 5 star airline) meaning the highest level ranking.

 

the 4 star China Airlines are AIr China and China Southern while China Eastern is a 3 star airline to round out the big four.

 

Have to agree with Hainan as being the best though when I flew with them back to Aus one of the best flying experiences I had staff very friendly, good food, good in-flight entertainment, and comfortable seats.

The one that doesn't crash when I'm aboard?

seriously though, I fly cattle-car class and I never notice any difference in any of them (well, maybe Cubana & Aeroflot were a little different). a small seat with worn upholstery, a funny little meal that's not too bad and dry air. Just get me where I'm going and that's enuf for me.

I was really surprised flying with domestic Chinese routes... seats was always a bit more comfortable then in western lines (even if they are not new...)

Only one "not so convenient" thing happened to me. One time on the route from Hangzhou to Guangzhou plane "jumped" 3 or 4 times on touch-down.
That "kangaroo" I know in small sport planes... it is normal, but sometimes shows a little lack of pilot's skills... but never in B737 or that scale plane Smile
Happily it was not touch-and-go maneuver...

I used Haian last time, it was the cheapest yet fastest flight I've had, funny I haven't been able to get that kind of deal again.

Any airline whose total number of take offs matches it's total number of landings is by definition a good one.

i think AirChina is the best for price, service and type of plane- most domestic planes suck  but international flights i found Airchinas plane very good.

In my experience you get what you pay for.  If you use a lower class airline, outside of the big 4, then you will get what westerners would refer to a "bad service".  But I have found that my Chinese friends expect poor service so there is no demand for improvement  in these areas.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
