They have cheap flights from ATL for Songkran. Sub $800. Probably even cheaper from EWR, where I'd transfer. Question is are they any good? Safe? I have never flown with them or recall seein them mentioned here.
this is either stupidity or b8
OP, the safety of all transcontinental airlines these days are top notch so it really doesn't matter which you'll fly with. The only real difference you can expect is in service and possible hidden extra fees. Never flown with Air China but I'm gonna go ahead and assume that it won't be too bad since it's an intercontinental flight. Never flown with Delta either, but I heard that their service isn't particularly good
Crap airline, but it will get you there. Probably less safe than a better airline, but say it's absolutely insanely worse, double the chance of crashing and dying - that's still pretty fucking safe.
It'll be fine.
The in-flight meal might not be what you're used to but it's not going to actually be worse than the standard junk, just different.
>is there a US airline that does burgers for in-flight meals? That would be top kek
The safety will be fine, they're allowed to fly everywhere so their safety has to pass US/EU/IATA/UN rules everywhere.
The service will probably be a bit basic but compared to standard US airline service, that's not saying anything at all. Might even be better.
Chinese airlines don't generally fuck around with hidden fees and charging for shit on the plane. They probably won't have booze but you never know, red/white wine and beer is possible. Since airline service was basically better 10 years ago and since Chinese (offline) businesses are basically using standards from 10 years behind the west, they're probably a bit nicer.
I've never used an airline other than Air China because they always have the cheapest flights for my routes.
The flight attendants are cute, this Beijing Beer they serve is oddly tasty and the meals aren't that bad.
Rice with meat and veggies, taste like your average Chinese take out desu
The beverage cart will be temporarily closed for maintenance, but the attendant will be happy to show you around the plane and take you to her cousin's shop, where you can by beer and liquor bargains at great prices! And do not be concerned, she will get you back to your seat later, when the drink cart will be in service again.
I've flown with Air China from Hong Kong to Taipei. They were flying a 747 and was the most intense flight I've been on. You know how you get annoyed at how slow airplanes seem to ascend and descend? Well, fly with them and you'll find out why no one else does fast ascension and descension.
