JFK-SHA return. Seats were comfortable. I didn't like the fact that they store the magazines right next to the seat belt. Food was okay at best. The cabin temperature was very hot on outbound flight, but on the way back the staff did attend to this and it was much better in the cabin. Pajamas and toiletries provided, it wasn't bad for the price. If you sit in the window seat, you have to climb over the other passenger to get out. One thing I did not like was that on arrival, they do not section off economy passengers before first and business class exited. It got very congested.

The seat was private but not claustrophobic, the seat (once I had figured out how to use it) was comfortable and offered a myriad of resting/sleeping positions. I particularly liked the table which was open all the time, and one could simply pull it towards one for eating or working.

Great aircraft, clean fresh, bright, very attentive polite crew, comfortable seat, good food. Full flat bed with quilt, good choice of English movies and TV, amazingly large screen, good quality pictures and sound. Wasn't too sure at first flying with Air China but I would recommend it.

FRA-PEK-PVG-PEK-FRA. Quite new plane for the long-haul connection. Good seats, full flat, but the space for the feet is quite limited. The plane for the return trip was quite new, however the seat felt quite worn and the seat cushion was too soft. Overall still excellent product compared to other airlines. Overall seating is very competitive vs Lufthansa, KLM etc, but service is not. FA at Air China I met do not speak English well and do not really have an idea how normally business class service should look. Meal/drink service takes forever, even considering that you have to make the orders for the complete flight already before the flight departs. Food/drink quality (tried western food only) was weak, got frozen salad and warm Champagne. There is a great service of Air China in the major cities. They offer free limo transfer for biz and first passengers. They picked me up directly at the airplane door, brought me through immigration etc. in a special lane, then to a brand new BMW series 5. From touch down of the plane to the hotel in PEK downtown it took exactly 50 minutes, this is really great. I would take Air China again, their pricing is very competitive and the seats are still more than okay. Next time I probably need to take some one food/drinks on board.

PEK-BKK. The seating configuration on this aircraft in business class is 2-2-2 (no 1st class). Your feet fit in an opening under the seat in front of you, so technically your bed is a bed as long as your body pivots around your feet. But it was very comfortable. The seat controls allow you to adjust your sitting position, and with one button you take the seat flat and it feels flat and very comfortable. The Air China B777 cabin is far superior to United's sardine-can approach, and is competitive with Delta's seats, equally comfortable but with a bit less privacy. The service on Air China was very attentive. Every seat comes with a pillow and a blanket. The bathrooms could have been cleaner, though they were not awful.

London-Beijing and found this comfortable. Forward facing and arranged as pairs the seat goes completely flat for bed position and comfortable. As others have said, slightly narrow in bed position. Not much adjustment as a seat but comfortable enough. Large IFE screen and Air China seem to have improved their programme choice recently. Amenities nice, great duvet and okay pillow. Meals a bit bored for western choice, staff language skills a bit mixed, but very friendly.

FRA-PEK, large and comfortable seat which turns to one of the best beds I've ever tried, with a very nice duvet. Large IFE screen and extremely good sound system but limited choice if you are not much into Chinese movies. Great Chinese food and teas, champagne and wines lagging behind. FA trying their best.

I have flown the Air China Boeing 777 several times from Frankfurt to Beijing and back. Compared to the first experiences with Air China in 2006, this new airplane is greatly improved. The seats can recline to a full flat position. It is one of the few airplanes on which I can actually sleep. If flying to Shanghai I opt for a stopover in Beijing just to get a bit of sleep on this specific plane. For very tall people like me the leg room tapers drastically and I also do not like the fixed pillow/head rest in sleeping mode but it is still so much better than what Lufthansa offers at higher cost in their brand new Airbus A380 on the same route. The entertainment system is technically okay but the repertoire tends more and more to Chinese movies, but then I do not fly in business to watch but to work or get some rest.

CDG-PEK, great seats and very confortable. Wide, and quite private suite type of seat. Very large IFE screen and choice was fair considering this is a Chinese airline. Nice duvet, pillow and things, but pyjamas very rough material and not comfortable. Staff were polite and smiled, some language skills were a bit limited.

PEK to LHR, full cabin in both sections. Goes fully flat, and comfortable as a bed - not quite as nice for the seat position, but still quite good. Small pop up privacy screen okay, and quite a lot of seat storage space.

Sydney to London via Beijing in new business class. We were very impressed with the width and lie flat facility of these seats. We managed to sleep on all legs of the trip and when not sleeping we found the seats very comfortable. The only issue I found was the screen was poor for IFE.

A fairly new Boeing 777 with the new First Class cabin, and what an improvement. This is one of the best First class seats I have experienced in the last 2-3 years. Wide seat, good privacy and very comfortable for sleeping - nice cushion support. Large table for meal, huge TV screen and finally for Air China a good choice of international movies. FA's spoke good English, the food was also great and a top-rate experience all round.

This A330 had the newly fitted flat bed seats and what a difference! Nice and wide and comfortable in the seat/relax position, but the adjustments for backrest, footrest etc are not brilliant in seated stance. As a flat bed in full recline, it was nice and comfortable and much nicer than many of the pod-style seats on other airlines I have flown this year.

Air China Business Class seats are relatively comfortable, with angled flatbed, it has 5 positions, sleep, dinning, take off and landing and two other positions. TV is really small for business class, with the distance you probably need a pair glasses for watching. 2-2-2 arrangement is similar with other airlines. Try to score the front seats when you check in.

Fairly standard F Class seat with flatbed capabilities. Air China seem to have put a lot of effort into improving their First Class and its now quite competitive compared against Lufthansa, Air France or Thai. Overall, very satisfied with this experience and would consider Air China in the future.

A fair quality flat-bed seat. Cabin arranged 1x2x1, and window seats give a reasonable standard of privacy. Whilst not the very latest generation of F-class seat, the seat width was particularly good around the shoulder area when turned into a flat bed. Cushion comfort also reasonably nice, and seat mattress, nice duvet and good pillow are provided. Quite good storage areas, a small personal cupboard as well - quite pleasantly surprised by the comfort of these seats.

Angled lie-flat seat - its okay in the sitting position, but not very wide, and seat cushions are too thin and hard. Arranged as a 2x2x2 cabin, there is a flimsy little slide partition that you can pull up, but does not offer privacy. Very difficult to find comfortable sleep position, as only angled lie-flat and quite steep, and legrest length is too short. Air China really needs to offer flat bed seats if they want to compete better.

Large seats on the Boeing 737-800 in Row 1-2 are Air China's First Class Seats. These 738s only fly within China and some routes on short haul international flights, such as Japan, HK, Singapore. Large pillows give you extra comfort and folded table under arm rest. Nice product for less than 3 hours flight. There is another folded tea cup holder under the other arm rest, which can be quite handy to use, if not having anything to eat.

New York to Beijing. Seats fairly comfortable, though a little stiff and narrow. As far as angled lie flat seats go, they are average - difficult to sleep on side. The service quality was mediocre. Entertainment offered 8 movies.
