Everything went very smoothly, from check in to collecting our baggage. Would be happy to fly with Sichuan Airlines again.

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....

Nothing! The ground staff were amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. 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...

In June, my husband and I took a very short flight from Shanghai to Chengdu. When I got off the plane, I felt itchy near my ankle. After scratching a few times, I finally looked at my skin and discovered several very red bug bites that were not there before the flight. I pulled up both of my pant legs...

The flight was from Bejing to Chengdu. At check-in there was a big crowd, so be there early. My colleague managed to get a seat at the emergency exit which allowed me to do some work. Departure was more or less on time. On-board service was OK.
