Pros: Flew from Vancouver to Qingdao and despite my concerns after reading earlier reviews, the flight was great! The seat was comfortable and reclined enough that you could actually sleep. I think I was one of very few non-Chinese passengers on board and there was a bit of a language barrier, but the staff was super friendly and accomodating.

Cons: I ended up with a middle seat, but the seat was comfortable and roomier than normal, so it wasn't so bad.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Nothing, it was extremely annoying.

Cons: Because of the two hour delay, I was going to miss my next flight. I told the flight attendant about my problem. She said that it would be fine, and they would help me once I landed. That didn't occur. I got through customs and rushed to the airline desk. They then told my that my connection flight had been delayed. I went through security, and I sat next to my gate. For hours it said delayed, but didn't give a new time. I asked the staff, and they said later. After four hours, I asked again, and they told me that the flight had left. I asked another staff member, who told me that the flight had been canceled, and I needed to get a new ticket. I never got an answer as to whether the flight had been canceled, but I was not going to leave Xi'an that day. They sent me to a hotel, which was more than 20 minutes away from the airport. In the morning, the airport transport was late, which caused even more stress. To top all of this off, I had to go to three different people for my ticket because there was some unknown problem.

Okay 4.0

Cons: Need to pick up all my luggages at Chongqing airport and use the cart to carry all luggages from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. It's a LONG way. Why can they auto transfer all my luggages from Hainan Airlines to Beijing Capital Airlines? They even didn't mention the transfer process when I bought the ticket. That's too bad.

Good 6.3

Pros: The seat space, and the ability to recline the seat was surprising.

Cons: It is what it is.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: Cathay Pacific always has courteous and caring crew. From the pilot to the attendants everyone enjoys their jobs and it shows in the amount of care and effort they put into ensuring that everyone has an exceptional flight.

SIN
HKG
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Very disappointed in the service provided

Cons: Contact the customer for flight changes instead of doing it automatically for the customer. I woke up to text messages letting me know my flight was changed from 0635 to 2135. I had major plans for the next few days and couldn’t afford to take that risk.

Okay 5.0

Cons: The flight attendant actually worked very hard. But I don’t think they have enough people working in the economy. I asked for a cup of coffee twice from 2 different flight attendant. Never got it

TPE
Okay 5.3

Pros: The crew were busy but very attentive

Cons: I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones.

Mediocre 3.3

Cons: Busted infotainment screen. A perfunctory apology was offered after the flight had landed. None of the crew had any level of proficiency in English and shied from interacting with non-Chinese passengers. And finally, 10-abreast seating on the Boeing 777 is a nightmare.

Good 7.0

Pros: Crew were very helpful

Cons: First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good

LHR
LAX
Excellent 8.6

Pros: Strong crew service is the highlight of flying Air New Zealand. Plane comfort is good, with nice ambient lighting, decent seats and reasonably spacious toilets. At least for now, they have in-seat entertainment screens with lots of current offerings. Our flight had free wi-fi, a real plus.

Cons: Boarding with Air New Zealand at Heathrow was complex and poorly organised when compared to the smooth and efficient process at LAX. This has been the case each time I have flown this same route with this airline.

IAH

Okay 4.0

Pros: Airline is pretty good

Cons: I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
