    Question air-conditioning or air-conditioned

    Should I say the bus is an air-conditioning bus or an air-conditioned bus?

    And, should I say that "although the food in the restaurant is just so so, the air-conditioning / air-conditioner is very good". Thanks!

    It should read, "an air-conditioned bus", the word "bus" being a noun, and "air-conditioned" an adjective.

    And, should I say that "although the food in the restaurant is just so so, the air-conditioning / air-conditioner is very good".
    "The air-conditioning is very good" is correct, as "air-conditioning" is a noun and the subject of the sentence. I'm not sure "air-conditioner" is a proper word.

    air conditioned bus -correct [ air conditioned is attributively used here]

    Air Conditioning - is a device

    Air conditioning is the means to control atmospheric environment in private and public buildings for the comfort of human beings or animals or for the proper performance of some scientific or industrial processes.
