Reviews for china southern airlines provided by one travelers

Unfortunately, with the challenges of flying during COVID, I was barely able to go home for a memorial to my father. I would like to commend China Southern for just not hesitating to me on the flight and just authorizing me for an instant refund. This helped ease a great deal of stress in my life and assisted me in unforeseen payouts. Yet only flight credit is offered to other companies, that refund has really assisted. Thank you.

The flight delayed several times, so we finished up waiting in the departure lounge for around three hours. I would have been able to pursue more gainful things do to my time had the delay been confirmed sooner. On the positive hand, during the waiting period, they gave some snacks. An odd canned beans instant meal was among the food and drink items: great.
