I have recently been considering one of these long Chinese airline flights because you can make a long overnight layover to make the trip easier with a hotel stay. But reading a lot of bad reviews about China southern and eastern. Anyone can chime in here who has flown air china? Heard about real dirty washrooms and rude people and staff and just overall unpleasant flights.

I've flown a few times with them. I've never had any major problems, though I found the seats pretty uncomfortable compared to other airlines I've flown to asia with. For the price, I'm not going to complain. I found the staff to be pretty nice, and accommodating.

I've flown all of them many times.

I think It's china air that is the cleanest, or air china. One of the 2. I wouldnt risk it tho. Im done saving 100-300$ by using chinese airlines.

Can you provide supporting links for this information?

According to this - Canadians do need a visa:

Thanks for posting.

China provides two types of visa exemptions:
1) Transit Visa for 72 hours.
2) Transit visa for 144 hours IF entering from PVG, PEK, and TSN.

http://cy.china-embassy.org/eng/lsqw/t1567073.htm

I've done the 72 hours before, there's a special booth before immigration that issues you the visa on the spot. Then you go through normal immigration checks.

Can't actually find this fare on ITA Matrix, so I'm curious if it's either sold out, or what.

The key word here is "TRANSIT" - flying Air China to another country, say, Taiwan or Thailand, you can get a 144 hour transit visa upon arrival in Beijing in the event you want leave the airport

But if you're flying them to visit Shenyang or Guanzhou, you'll need a tourist visa BEFORE flying
