China Southern

Flying to Melbourne from Heathrow return in late January and China Southern have some very good prices. Anyone any comments about this carrier?

Only ever done J, terminating in China. they're good. Guangzhou Airport is a bit confusingly dysfunctional at times. in J, with tight connections you get a lot of help (carts, guides through the various checkpoints and gateways)

On flight service was fine. Modern fleet. competent crew. It's a different sensibility about appropriate behaviour in the air maybe for a lot of the pax, but nothing I haven't seen on other airlines.

Good thing about asian airlines? the pax getting off in Asia, from Asia universally sleep on the flight. Its quiet.

One of the better Chinese airlines and good value for money especially in business class. Almost as good as western and Middle Eastern airlines but can be a lot cheaper.

Look into the free stopover offer as a way to break the journey. Hotel room and China visa included. Guangzhou isnít a major tourist spot like Beijing, but you can do some shopping.

I travel to Melbourne from the UK every year, i haven't flown China Southern yet but have not heard anything against them. I have found the best value for money, particularly in business is Vietnam Airlines especially in business. New 789's and good service. The only problem is a long stopover in Vietnam both ways, OK if you plan to spend a few days in Vietnam but otherwise it is a long wait..
