An inauspicious start as the flight was over 2 hours late due to late arrival. But we were very pleased that the stewardesses spoke excellent English and were very helpful, and always smiling. Food was rudimentary - packets of dried peach, cakes do chicken, plus a drinks service twice during the flight.

The entertainment system was good, however, I don't like the food. The seats were not great. Overall the service was good and it is good value for money.

Well, starting with land service.... no good or bad, just NOT EXISTING. In LAX - no lounge, no kiosk or service desk. You need to get out of the clean zone to get a boarding pass, then pass via security again. I refused to do so, wait at the gate, and they printed the boarding pass and bring it to...

No they are not Qantas but for the money they were excellent. The cabin crew were attentive but with little to no English. But they tried their hardest to meet every request. A great airline at a good price. Highly recommend them

I only discovered on this flight, my first with Sichuan Airlines that they are a part of China Southern, China's largest airline. While I am OK with the parent, I was very impressed with Sichuan. Flying the Chinese carriers remind me a little about the old days when flying by commercial airlines was more personal and less of a business....

The cabin crew attentive and even though English was poor there were enough friendly and obliging passengers that spoke fluent mandarin and English to get by. Travelling overnight meant sleeping the hours away. The only downside which is minor is the food is Chinese and for breakfast it is hard to...
