Flew from Christchurch to Thailand return from 6 September 2017 - 19 September 2017. The stopover in Guangzhou was about 3 hours and it seemed like forever. I flew Emirates last time and wished I had booked with them again. The seats are uncomfortable. The staff on board did not have that warm and welcoming feeling. There is no vegetarian option for my friend but I wasn't a fan of the meal anyway. The sound system of the tv system is shocking. I will never fly them again.
