Pros: "Customs really fast"
Pros: "The company seems to be good based on their tv advertisement."

Pros: "Very good service, warm and thoughtful"
Cons: "Only one of two washrooms in economy class was working. Very long queue."
Cons: "We arrived from O'Hare to Seattle and needed wheelchair assistance as I am disabled. When we approached the gate to ask for wheelchair assistance down the ramp to board the plane I was asked if I really needed the wheelchair. I thought that was an odd question to someone that walks with a cane and could be seen walking from the restroom to the gate which would have been a quick one minute jaunt for me 5 years ago but took at least ten minutes from the restroom to the gate. I was trying to figure out in my head how I was going to attempt this long walk while other travelers would have been quickly boarding ahead of me. This was my first of many trips to China to see family but will definitely be my last trip with Hainan. I was extremely disappointed in the way I was treated - is this the way all passengers with disabilities are treated?"

Pros: "Seats were pretty good for Economy. Flight was ontime."
Cons: "Would have preferred a Premium Economy option. Meals: Tray tables much too small, difficult to work with. Food was pretty poor. Drinks offered at beginning but had to ask for water to get a partial glass of water. not even a bottle and didn't see staff again for 6 hours. Inflight Entertainment was pointless. Earbuds were handed out. You couldn't hear even 1 word out of ten. There was no stereo sound; only the left ear had sound."

I needed to take out all my suitcases and need to go terminal 3 international airport that is very far from where Hainan airlines landed to take my next flight. How sites can sell ticket like that without notice and warning!!!!!! Ver bad connection."
Pros: "Best service with genuine hospitality. Wish all airlines were like Hainaun airlines"
Pros: "Very accepting and respected"
Cons: "Everything is fine"
Pros: "Service was good. Plane was clean. Free alcohol."
Cons: "No American/Hollywood movies were uploaded to their entertainment services. The flight attendants said that their entertainment system was recently updated and they must have forgotten to refresh the new releases and Hollywood movies. Also, they ran out of mango + coconut juice even though their flight cocktail of choice was a Passion Sandy (coconut juice + Baileys)."
Cons: "Food wasn't that good. The flight crew and amenities were very nice however."
Pros: "It seemed like the beverage tray was on a constant loop. Made staying hydrated very easy! Staff was also very friendly and considerate - one of the attendants snuck a sandwich onto my tray while I was passed out."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Pros: "Too little times, the stewards provided water"
Cons: "Fly Shenzhen to Beijing to San Jose, why the luggage can't directly to San Jose? I have to pickup my luggage at Beijing and check in again. Beijing is just a transfer."

Cons: "Excellent in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Cabin crew very professional"

Baggage check desk says the larger bag did not get on plane because malfunction of computer tag. My missing bag will come on next flight to Beijing but will not make it in time for my departing plane to Seattle per baggage clerk. A missing bag was filed w Hainan Air. No attempt was made to correct the situation by Hainan. Alaska air was much more helpful even though the situation was caused by Hainan!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were so friendly and professional. That are beautiful, too."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Breakfast was good with the egg frittata, potatoes and fresh fruit and yogurt."
Cons: "The dinner was greasy noodles with meat. The meat on the salad was fatty. I just finished feeling unsettled."

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."
Pros: "Food, comfort and entertainment are good. The stewardess on airplane is also helping people filling the form in the airplane."
Cons: "I bought Hainan Airline round trip ticket between ORD and PEK from Kayak. Without flying first Hainan Airline ticket from ORD to PEK on Nov. 24, 2016 because of personal reason, I flew on Nov. 26, 2016 with American Airline instead. When I tried to use Hainan Airline round trip ticket to return US (PEK to ORD), I was refused to check in. I have to pay extra $413 to check in the same flight. Without any notice from Hainan Airline and Kayak, I was very upset with Hainan Airline service. I complain for this issue and call them several times, but there is still no respond from Hainan Airline. It is unfair for me to pay extra $413 air ticket without notice."
Pros: "The seats are really comfortable."
Cons: "The transition is so poor. I bought a ticket from San Jose to Hangzhou. Transit Beijing. you can never transite from Beijing to hangzhou on time. They will ask you to delay your trip and take another airline. Which is 5 hrs waiting. Plus they won't even say sorry about their poor service."
Pros: "They reimbursed us 500RMB for the flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 10 hours. During this time, the only food we received was a hot pocket and some cookies. They offered no explanation for the delay and did not even alert us of the delay through email or any other communications, so I did not find out until I landed in Seattle from New York."
Pros: "Very cheap tickets. Free drinks, meals and no baggage charge. Snacks and drinks available throughout the flight. Sometimes the food was great, other times less than mediocre. Most films were heavily edited for content but there is a decent selection. No nonsense crew were professional and friendly. Seating arrangements are such that no passenger is more than one person from the aisle. Restrooms were clean. Free WiFi and power outlet. Seems more geared toward Chinese travelers yet easy for English speakers to navigate. On time both ways."

Cons: "Riding the bus to get to the airplane. Lack of legroom."

Pros: "Transfer services were excellent."
Pros: "Economy seats were actually pretty comfortable and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was basically unsalted, watery rice and fruit. By the third round of it (long flight w/ 2 dinners and 1 breakfast) I just didn’t eat it. The entertainment also advertises movies and shows that they don’t have. Small selection that could be better."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safely."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaos and when we finally boarded, the seats were extremely uncomfortable. There also wasn’t any choice of entertainment and the movie that was playing had no way to have audio (no headphone jacks to plug into)"

Cons: "Food service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, ridiculous. Do better. No excuses."
Pros: "Not much, but the crew were friendly"
Cons: "The airline was late in take off for some unknown reason (nothing to do with weather). Flight too be late and we missed out connecting flight.They demanded we purchase a new ticket for the next leg of the flight. Furthermore, then they cancelled the rest of the return flight. Terrible Airline"
Cons: "on august 14，i got an email tell me my airline is china eastern airline. i have waited for chech -in in china eastern airline for 30minutes,the china eastern told me my airline is not china eastern .maybe hainan airline i walked to hainan airline ,it told me it is not their airline....."

Pros: "The crew and the food."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The crew was good. The flight was quick and direct."
Cons: "So they had a very quick food service then because of turbulence they closed the bathrooms and made everyone stay in their seats. I have 3 little kids and a wife with a small bladder. Over the course of 4 hours they need to use the bathroom sometime. My kids were literally crying because they had..."
Cons: "The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. Will be making an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. The sichuan airlines help desk just ignored me when i approached them with the missed flight document (in chinese) .Terrible! I had to book a hotel and another flight out of my own pocket for the airlines mistake."
Pros: "The staff in yangon were extremely helpful and understood my situation. However they were unable to do anything to rectify the issue."
Cons: "The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. I will make an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. Still nothing could be done."
Cons: "I had to pack my laptop too much early - 15 minutes before we started descent. By other airlines it is possible to use it longer"
Cons: "Very friendly crew members."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient. The check-in was smooth and they explained how to get to the gate location. The flight left on-time and arrived early."
Cons: "The plane was very warm and the AC was either turned off or set to a high temperature. There was no cold drinks and no ice on the plane and drink service on the four hour flight was only immediately before and after dinner in a small cup. Bring something to drink with you. Entertainment was a Chinese movie on a small overhead screen with English subtitles that were too small to read. Unlike other flights on the same airline, we were not offered a choice of meals."
Pros: "Good price and had entertainment and meals that were tasty."
Cons: "Too cramped, not much on the television, seat did not go far back enough to sleep for a long flight."
Cons: "The check in staff extremely rude and unprofessional. You can’t check your bag into your final destination You also must go thru immigration and customs in Chengdu"
Pros: "gate staff very helpful in assigning seats. flight smooth and flight staff competent. Choice of 3 meals in economy. Nonstop flight to our destination a plus."
Cons: "Cannot select seat prior to flight."
Pros: "Plane departed on time. There was food service and 2 beverage services."
Cons: "long wait to get to our destination gate."
Pros: "Flight boarded quickly and was on time. Food of fair to average quality was served. Very nice to be offered blankets and a second round of beverages."
Cons: "Delayed. Bad food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Plane seats were small -- but as expected to be honest with you."
Pros: "The crew were super. They were friendly, efficient, and well-dressed. Boarding was orderly. Food service too. The movies were mostly visual jokes and high drama which was perfect since it was a shared screen and not in everyone's language."
Cons: "The plane was a bit old and the seats too close together. But it was clean and tidy."
Cons: "It was never made clear in my itinerary that there was a stop at Hangzhou. I didn't realize there was a seperate flight until I checked in at the hotel."
Cons: "My bags never arrived and haven't been found to date"
Cons: "Most of the crew was not skilled with English (both comprehension and pronunciation) so it was difficult to communicate or to understand instructions. The flight was also delayed for an hour, which could have been avoided if the airline staffed more people for check-in or streamlined the check-in process since that was the only bottleneck preventing passengers from being on time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice and the food was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The time frame. My flight was supposed to leave at 11:50pm. We left at almost 2am. In which case made me late to a layover I had in China which made me miss my last flight to Japan. BUT, luckily, a woman that worked for the airline in China was able to put me on an air China flight to japan, which again in very grateful for!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing, it was completely horrible!!!"
Cons: "Everything was delayed by at least 1 hour. The flight delay was announced at 11pm the day of, but the passengers weren’t situated in a hotel until 3am. And the flight didn’t arrive until 11pm the next day!! A 15hr delay! And because I had a connecting flight, the delay made me have to spend ANOTHER extra night in the airport, AND never compensated me for the connecting flight ticket which I had to purchase another one of."
Cons: "We had to get off the plane in Jinan to go through customs and get back on rather than going straight to Chengdu. In Chengdu we had to claim our checked bags and check in again before boarding to Taipei."
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome and the food was good."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The check in counter in Chengdu doesn't open until 1 1/2 hours before the flight departs."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Good basic airline with no frills, but who needs them for such a short flight?"
Cons: "No way to check in on line."
Cons: "When I arrived to the airport I was informed that my flight is cancelled. They found me a new flight instead, 40 minutes earlier than the original one. Which was fine. But I didn't get information in advance, and some not nice experience while not knowing if there would be another flight instead of the cancelled one."
Pros: "Flight over Himalayas was breath-taking!"
Cons: "Flew from Chengdu to Kathmandu, through Lhasa. Even though it was the same flight, we had to de-plane in Lhasa and go through security both coming off the plane and twice again before re-boarding the same plane, to the same seats. Probably a China / Tibet thing, but we received no explanation from Sichuan. After this uber-security play, we got back on the same plane and sat for almost 2 hours on the tarmac, even though we were the only plane in the airport! Sichuan served us lunch while still on the ground, but I would have preferred an explanation from the crew for the unreasonable delay."
Pros: "Initial ticketing and boarding was easy. A bit of a fiasco in Lhasa."
Pros: "Great experience. Prompt service and polite staff all around. Nicest flight in China so far."
Cons: "Had 2 layovers that weren't mentioned in our original booking. Absolutely unacceptable. No online checkin either."
Cons: "Worst airlines I have ever traveled. Crew and airport staff hardly understand English and there is no communication between passengers and airport crew when flight gets cancelled. Please do not select this airlines even if it's $500 cheaper."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 8:30pm. We were delayed until 11, then 11:50. At 11:50 we were still not boarding and an argument started about compensation. We were finally boarded at 12:30am. But on the plane we were not given information and continued to sit there for an hour and a half while the plane was further delayed. We finally left around 2:30am, six hours after we were supposed to leave. I missed my ride at Beijing and my first night at the hotel."
Pros: "timeliness of boarding polite and helpful crew"
Cons: "We had to get off to go through immigration"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Organization is poor, food is aweful, seats are bad"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and friendly. Boarding was quick and painless. They served lunch that was fairly good standard food. For a specialty Chinese airline the English was quite good and entertainment choices were varied enough with English (foreign) movies and shows. Subtitles were available as well. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment was a little lacking due to it being a Chinese specialty flight but there were enough shows and movies in English it wasn't a huge issue. The shows/movies were maybe a little of the not popular sort but, again, they were entertaining."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Staff was friendly. Food was delicious. Boarding was quick, once we started."
Cons: "Boarded late and departed late. Couldn't use cell phones in airplane mode."
