    53 hour stop over is really killing it..

    • +4 votes

      The 72-hour visa-free transit policy in China allows air passengers from 53 countries to transit and stay for up to 72 hours (3 days) in 18 China cities without a visa. In order to facilitate international visitors' short stay in China, the policy is promising to be carried out in more and more cities in the future.

      The new 737 are really killing it

    Does anyone have any experience of China Southern? I see it come up fairly often, but it's not one I've heard that much about. I know they're fairly big, but what's the real world experience like?

      Not personally, but Skytrax rates them 8/10

      I’ve flown with them many times.

      They’re fine. You can tell they’re budget, but the flights are decent. If you don’t have booking problems they’re amazing value.

      Just get in early for checkin, it’s a nightmare. I’ve been waiting an hour or more a few times while other passengers scream and argue over baggage allowances.

      If you experience any problems, then it’s a different story, you’ll hit a communication barrier. I’ve had issues with both the phone service (worse than useless) and the airport service desks before.

      Once, I had a cancelled connecting flight, and was left in communications limbo with no information and blank stares from the staff in Guangzhou. They would nod and say “yes, yes”, but it was clear they had no idea what I was asking.

      Finally, I got someone who spoke English, but the mass of other passengers scrambling around made things difficult. They didn’t enforce queues, so it was like a rugby scrum. I was mid-way through getting info on the flight arrangements when I literally had another passenger push me to the floor and take my place. They did nothing, and just acted like that was normal, and served him.

      But for the price? I’ll keep flying with them. The vast majority of flights have been fine. And did I mention the price?

      If on-board entertainment system is important to you, don't bother. If you are expecting 5-star service, run from them. Other than that, food is OK, service is normal, free accommodation isn't great. I would say good value for money overall.

        I fly them several times each year. The in flight entertainment is fine and quite similar to other major / quality airlines.

        In flight service is good and the crew are well presented. Food is edible and better than other Chinese airlines.

        I found flight experience was better than Qantas to Hong Kong. But not as good as e.g Emirates.

        If anything to complain about its their transit service for missed connections. I've been stuck in Guangzhou twice overnight and on both occasions didn't get into a hotel until 2am.

        Just flew with them from MEL to Guangzhou a couple days ago,
        I normally don't fly Mainland chinese airlines, however on this flight I was surprised with the high level of customer service offered. Food and drinks were served promptly, and the seat for me was decent.

        There's quite a few movies on the screen which was enough to satisfy me.

        Couldn't complain about anything.

    A few of those flights have 2 stops…. one at Sanya which is not on the transit list.
    I would not chance those ones unless you have a Chinese passport or visa.

      True Sanya is not on the transit visa list. But it's only better. You get visa free entry for 30 days. Search for Hainan visa situation to find out.

      •  

        … and you have to register with a travel agency to qualify??

        Not sure that is better for this trip to the UK.

      The 737 Max 8s that have had a couple of crashes recently? They account for a massive percentage of Boeing's sales so it's not like they're alone. China has also just ordered all their airlines to ground that version. Don't single out these guys for something that's affecting airlines the world over.
