Hello friends traveling to home from LAX through Guangzhou on China Southern Airlines. The transit is around 2.5 hours. Few questions if anyone has recently traveled home through CS Air
- Do pick up your luggage at Guangzhou and check in again or is the luggage picked directly at KTM?
- Do you need Chinese Yuan while you’re at the airport or do most vendors inside accept dollar?
- Kindly share any other experience you think will be helpful :)

Dhanyabad friends.

Edit:
Thank you everyone for your response. I have to admit the China Southern flights through Guangzhou, China went smoothly without any issues. Few things to note for anyone who might be curious:
- I got the seats with extra legrooms and they were worth it. The one from LAX to China was additional $90 and one from China to KTM was $18. If possible, avoid seats near restroom.
- I checked in my baggage in LAX and picked it up directly in KTM like Situ mentioned.
- Pre selected hindu vegeterian meal and I personally liked it. They had kidney beans, chana tarkari, etc witn rice. From LAX to Guangzhou, they offer two meals which was great because I was not hungry while at transit :)
- They offer drinks (tea, wine, soft drink) multiple times during the flight. The flight attendants were fluent in English and cheerful.
- At Guangzhou, there are kiosk where if you scan your passport, they’ll generate an account id and pin for you to join airport wifi.
- My layover was only 2.5 hours. So transit visa was not required. Upon arrival at Guangzhou, you just follow the signs for “Transfer”, “International Transfer” that will lead you to entry officer checking your boarding pass and security officer asking you to pass through xray machine. No questions were asked, they just told me to empty my pockets, remove laptop charger/laptop, etc.
- Be mindful of the gate changes. My flight’s gate was changed two times.
All in all I’d recommend this route and will do it again if the price is as cheap as it has been recently.

Hi Situ,
How difficult is it to change the plane for KTM in Guangzhou airport during transit? Do you have to walk a lot from the gate where plane from LAX lands to the gate where the plane for KTM departs?

You pick your luggage at KTM airport directly. They do accept dollars. Good choices of food at the airport. Its easy to change plane at Guangzhou, no problem at all. btw there will be lot of napali at the Guangzhou airport trying to leave for KTM.

Guangzhou Airport is boring as hell. It’s kind of depressing & China airlines seat sucks. Bottle of Jack Daniels costs $100 . Air hostess are nice and polite but the airport women are horrible and rude. I don’t mind long walk at airport , need exercise anyway after long flight but Guangzhou Airport is very dull if you have to stay more than 2 hrs.i would rather watch Nepali talking loud in phone in Dubai.
