Awesome

Dec 13, 2019

Being my first time flying China Southern Airlines, I was extremely happy with all the staff. Very friendly and accommodating in addition to all flights being on time or even a little early. Checked bags were handled with care, far better than some other airlines I have used in the past. I will definitely fly China Southern Airlines again.
