Anyone tried CZ before? This fare looks pretty attractive, or at least 40% less than what SQ ($4000) or CX ($4300, SYD-HKG) ask for.

China Southern at $2,300.00 vs QF codeshare on the same flight at $4033 min?
As much as I love QF, I'd say that's a huge penalty to pay for QF status credits. Same aircraft, same on-board service.
Yes, I've flown CZ SYD-CAN-SYD in J class A330-300 (it varies between a -200 and -300) and also on the CAN-JFK-CAN B777-300ER service in J as part of the same trip.
All in all, I was quite impressed with the manner in which CZ presented it's international product. Service levels are similar to (or marginally better than) QF - but with a Cantonese flavour. Would I do it again? Yes, most definitely in international. Some Domestic routes can be a bit 'hit and miss' - and improved English skills at the CZ CS check-in desks for Domestic could be better. For the price, it is well worth it, IMHO.
By the way, if you do a search on 'China Southern' on AUSBT, you'll find quite a few articles.
