I booked my flight using Kayak without problems. However, when I went to the China Southern website to reserve a seat, I found out you could only do that when you booked on the site itself. I tried to contact customer service in China and Mexico City multiple times by email and left voice mail messages. None were ever returned....

A clean and simple service with no major distractions. The food was fine and staff were friendly. The aircraft was tidy and a fairly modern part of the fleet. Seats weren't uncomfortable in any way shape or form compared to my recent 787 experience.
