"Air China" China Transportation Tip by mke1963

China Transportation: 268 reviews and 211 photos

Air China is the national airline of China.
While few airlines in China make delay statistics known, CA has a bit of a reputation for delays and cancellations.
An upside of using Air China is that it frequently uses its bigger long-haul aircraft on domestic routes. These aircraft (747, 777, 767 and A340) have a lot more leg room in economy class.
Food is moreorless the same on all Chinese airlines: standardised 1970s food in a container ("chicken or beef?").
