Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Every thing in airplane was wonderful. I would like to recommend this airline to my friends"
Cons: "You are best ."
Pros: "Crew took great care of us"
Cons: "The cabin was so hot it felt like there was no air conditioning. Please turn up the air conditioning (make it colder). Passengers feeling cold can use a blanket to stay warm. Passengers feeling warm have no solution. I was wearing just a T-shirt and was feeling so warm. Thank you"
Pros: "Love everything"
Pros: "Great service for economy. Very attentive flight attendants."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."
Pros: "I was on board with my 4 months old baby. The crew was so kind, they helps me a lot."
Pros: "Everything. I always enjoy my flights with JAL."
Pros: "I really got a good deal on my trip's cost, and for the price, all the comforts of a top-quality airline were there. I especially appreciate how helpful and friendly the airline staff were."
Cons: "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."
Pros: "Everything, the service and the food is great."
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "No... no... no...."
Pros: "Sky Time drink was interesting. Flight was on time."
Cons: "More leg room. Better information on what is included as far as meals / drinks."
Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Great food. Great service. Vast improvement over Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing. Respect for people at a level I haven’t seen on domestic US airlines. Seat configuration of 2-4-2 in economy was great. Food and entertainment was really good. Flight arrived on time with no issues."
Cons: "That the level of service on other airlines isn’t at this level. Don’t go to AA looking for a good example."
Pros: "Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."
Pros: "Space between the seats."
Cons: "Color of the seats."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything! My first flight was a little over 10 hours, but it didn't feel that way. I was very comfortable and the crew took very good care of all of the passengers. Japan Airlines is Ichi Ban!!!"
Pros: "So cramped. Very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Super cheap. Came with an in flight meal. Kind staff. Great service."
Cons: "We had to wait until check in to sit together."
Pros: "Service is great."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Boarded late. Took off late. Delayed 10 minutes at arrival gate with seat belt sign on."
Pros: "Incredibly nice staff made you forget about the older plane model you are in. Decent airplane meals and the nonstop from San Diego makes Japan now a frequent destination for us! I lucked out with 3 open adjacent seats roundtrip woo hoooo!"

Pros: "Very nice airplane with new technology"
Cons: "Plane was very hot"
Pros: "Nice flight, right on time."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food."
Pros: "Fast flight"

Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Cons: "Although, i booked businesss class l. I had to pay 1000 yen for each flight for seat selection. (They were giving me seats 50C) And no lounge facility either. All i got was 2000 yen and upgrade to J class. I had already paid extra for business class. This is highway robbery. No thanks JAL"
Pros: "Great friendly service on jal... my wife and I got lucky and we're bumped to business class. Would fly with them again 100%"
Pros: "Fast boarding and wonderful staff."
Cons: "A small complaint, but the entertainment system in the plane was very old and had poor quality screens."

Cons: "Same thing as above"
Pros: "Great vacation"
Cons: "being moved"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "The small touches - the hot soup in the middle of the flight was nice and comforting, the crew were exemplary in their hospitality, the seat was easily the most comfortable Economy Class seat I've sat on."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Japanese food not great"
Pros: "Japan Airlines is very good. They have good service, safety, and customer care."
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight."
Pros: "The 787 was quieter and felt very comfortable. The take off and landing were more smooth than I remember other flights being. The seats were quite comfortable and everything was very nice."
Pros: "The food was delicious and interesting. Also, the flight crew allowed me to sleep through the rest of the night after dinner service was complete."
Cons: "I don't recall having seen an option for a vegetarian dinner, either when I was booking my ticket or after I was on the plane. Perhaps I just missed that part of the booking process."
Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."
Cons: "The bed was uncomfortable, in that the arm rests disappear when you lay flat the bed. A petty thing since at least it was business class, but without taking pillows from empty seats it was uncomfortable when lying on one's side and nowhere to put arms."
Pros: "Japan airport is big and too much shopping needs to be done, and liked the fact that boarding started just 15 minutes before departure which gave me ample amount of time."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't the greatest. The mid-flight meal was a burger instead of the beloved ramen."
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "staff was pleasant, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "turbulence was awful."
Pros: "checking in at chicago ohare ord was a nightmare.there were only 12 of us in line yet the wait exceeded 1 hour , we watched as the airlines next to us processed well over 150 passenger's while the japan airline moved slower than snail sex. it was painfully beyond slow."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Can't say because I was satisfied w/ my flight"
Cons: "Very slow boarding process in Itami"
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."

Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process meant passengers were all boarded in a timely manner and the flight departed on-time."
Pros: "The long flight"
Cons: "The long flits"
Cons: "I requested fruit platter as my food, but they did not have any information for that. So they did not give me any food for this 14+6 hours long flights"
Cons: "Even after requesting fruit platter as my food a few times, I have not got any food at all. They offered meat options that they had at that time, but no vegetarian option at all."
Cons: "Salad that is not meat"
Cons: "Flight was good! Needs better inflight entertainment selection"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Timing, the connection timing was bad, I missed my connection to Calgary"
Pros: "Both of us being seniors wheel chairs were not provided. Food was not good and even dinner with the fish was not there. They have to reheat fish which took more than 15 minutes.Assistance was not provided to both seniors for carrying luggage on the stairs while boarding the flight for Vancouver"
Cons: "The food quality may be improved and also necessary help be provided particularly to seniors in boarding and transit."
Cons: "Unfortunately we ended up waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 3 hours before taking off due to extreme rainfall. So everyone was antsy/uncomfortable before even taking off for the long flight."
Cons: "Never fly again."
Pros: "The crew was courteous, efficient and spoke good English."
Cons: "Could use a bit more leg room for tall passengers (I'm 6ft). There was a slight delay de-planing since the crew needed to check each passenger off on a list. Not sure why."
Pros: "Staff was accommodative"
Cons: "There was on passenger who requested vegitarrian special but air line had no record of it.Air hoist started arguing that they did not have record. I had to intersect that it is not his mistake.It is a miscommunication.please try to solve,and she did. There are a lot of Punjabi passenger but no movie or song for their intertainment.Please if it is all possible!"
Pros: "Crew seemed nice, helpful."
Cons: "It's a budget flight so can't expect much, yet aircraft was small cold and not comfortable for such long internatianal flight"
Pros: "China to Bangladesh was the best part of my trip"
Cons: "Food and wifi service : They do not serve appropriate amount of food for a 12 hour journey. No snacks no drink other than water . I was starving . Wifi was very very slow I could not even get the service. I had a stop over of 8 hours but I did not get any hotel or lounge facilities. Also please upload some new movies in two to three weeks."
Pros: "The flight-staff was super co-operative when I told that I didn't select the vegan / veg food option in advance. They tried to to do their best to ensure that I still get some veg food to eat. In general also, I found that the flight-staff was the best."
Cons: "I am not sure how it happened, but I never got a chance to select meal when I did the booking. Probably because the booking was from third-party site but then again, when one clicks on "Book", the third-party site directs to airline site only."
Pros: "Good for a direct flight to China."
Cons: "2 hour wait on plane before we took off. Long also, to few meals."
Pros: "They lost my bags for over 48 hours. I had to din my bags myself. I will never use them again."
Pros: "I slept the entire flight so I considered this flight a success!"
Cons: "I packed snacks to eat on the flight because I had flown with this airline twice before and they had terrible food so I wanted to be better prepared."
Pros: "Everyone is very helpful in terms of where you go. They are just so happy to help you."
Cons: "The leg room really need to be increased. Its a 12 hour flight and i am 6feet person and i cant stress my legs. That sucks. But everything else are good."
Pros: "Food was okay compared to Melb-Guangzhou journey that was excellent."
Cons: "Not much leg room (structural bits took up space). Entertainment touchscreen did not work. Not many snacks offered. Food was served more than an hour after a 12:20am take off. No toiletries."
Cons: "You left me stranded in Bali and wouldn’t rebook me. You wouldn’t give me a full refund. You made me purchase an entirely new flight with a different airline. I spent FIVE hours on hold waiting to speak with a representative. I will advise anyone I know to never fly China Airlines"
Pros: "Cabin crew was wonderful and very attentive. Smooth flight with good food. 787 Dreamliner for a long haul 13 hour flight. First airline where I see the cabin crew clean the lavatories mid-flight! Overall a great experience.Would fly again."
Pros: "The food selection is good it’s up to what u expect"
Cons: "I had a rotten potato in my food and it tasted so bad I actually went to barf because it is carcinogenic and from then I didn’t feel well"
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Nice plane but seats were pretty hard on this particular plane. Noticed it on the flight from LAX also. Also, lots of movies but few recent releases."
Pros: "One meal for a 90 minutes fly? I am a frequent flyer and this is my first fly that services a meal in a 90 minutes fly"
Cons: "Everything is awesome."
Pros: "I like frankly low cost"
Cons: "I dont like old flight and food."
Pros: "I have been customer of this company for one year. The service is heart-warming. Thank you."
Cons: "If there is anything I can complain, neither zhajiangmian nor xuecai appeals to my taste."
Pros: "It was clean. Also the media selection"
Cons: "More food needed"
Cons: "Cell phones prohibited for the ENTIRETY of this 12-hour flight, not just takeoff and landing"
Pros: "Being able to move to the exit rows before the flight began to have lots of extra leg room and an open seat between us."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for more than five hours..."
Cons: "Completely crowded, no socks, no eye masks, no ear plugs"
Pros: "The in flight entertaint is good."
Cons: "The economy seats on the new Boeing Dreamliner are very uncomfortable. I could feel the bar under my seat digging into my backside for the duration of the 12 hour flight. I suspect that China Southern went cheap on the seat cushions they purchased from Boeing. Additionally, on my particular flight from Guangzhou, China to Vancouver, the flight was delayed for several hours for no apparent reason. The delay caused me to miss my transfer flight to Calgary, and what was supposed to be a two hour layover turned into a nine hour layover. China Southern thought to fix the situation it would be a good idea to provide me with a $10 food voucher.... Is that really enough for sitting around the airport for an additional seven hours? I am an expat that lives in China that has experience flying with multiple airlines, and this was my first and will be my last flight with China Southern."
Pros: "Good wine"
Cons: "No sparkling water, no good meet"
Pros: "Airplanes are new"
Cons: "No amenities"
Cons: "The toilets was very dirty,"
Pros: "Great service for the price. Not a budget carrier but definitely a very competitive price."
Cons: "There are always delays with Southern China. Whether this is their problem or beyond their control I don't know know but it always seems to happen with this airline. Also the transfer in Guangzhou needs improving. They haven't quite mastered customer service outside the airplane. Very little warmth or friendly communication with the ground crew."
Pros: "Ticket price was great, awesome deal."
Cons: "Horrible seats! Tiny cramped seats with no padding. I'm not the smallest guy out there but anyone over 250 lbs forget flying economy. Both legs of my trip from vancouver to Perth via China on two different aircraft companies on brand new planes had the worst seats so I think it's China Southern specifying the seats. Also 13hour flight there, limited movie choice but on the way back the head phone jack in seat rest did not work. The airline refused to let you use phones, iPads and laptops while in flight! Flight attentents woke everyone up 2.5 hours before landing at 4:45 am to serve breakfast. Would pay more next time to fly Cathay Pacific or Singapore."
Pros: "Got me there."
Cons: "Warm and cramped cabin."
Pros: "Value was excellent for this flight."
Cons: "The crew meant well, but their service seemed perfunctory and sometimes edging on rude. One crew member was getting frustrated because no-one could understand her English."
Pros: "2nd time on route from ktm and all staff are always helpful,efficient, and polite. CSA does everything to help connect to your flight."
Cons: "Guongzhou airport is the worst. Expensive sundries and cheaky clerks. Terrible layout, good luck getting to layover hotel via transfer desk in less than 2 hours! Attendants allowed spoiled little girl to carry on for ages and then family reunion with 2 coming from economy to play with said brat to business class after I upgraded while most were trying to sleep in whole section."
Pros: "The service was very good. The flight was quite late, but the friendliness and service of the staff made up for it."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The comfort"
Cons: "Food choices were terrible"
Pros: "Enjoyed pork curry with rice"
Cons: "No comments"
Cons: "The food selection could use a change with more fresh ingredients. We were offered two hot dishes but both were almost exactly the same. It would have been nice to have the lunch portion be or dinner portion be different."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food no good"
Cons: "My flight had a 16 hour layover in Dalian and it didn't say anywhere before hand that Dalian airport closes at night. I had to sleep outside of the airport."
Cons: "smooth trip! no hassles"
Cons: "Plane was very late to get to the gate.Seating is very uncomfortable. I am 5'2" and 136 Lb's. I am not a large person. The seating was cramped and no padding in the seat."
Pros: "There was a good amount of leg room for an economy seat"
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger movie selection"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "My tv monitor didn’t work and my wife’s chair wouldn’t stay reclined"
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Don’t let customer wait long time for gate after landing"
Pros: "Attentive crews, food on board - Food on board provides couple of choices of mainly Chinese food. I don't claim it to be extraordinary but it is far better than most of food other airlines provides in the economy class."
Cons: "Lavatory needs a bit more amenities, e.g. hand soaps, etc."
Pros: "The crew attention to the customer is top notch. I traveled with China Southern, Delta and Virgin Atlantic but by far Xiamen Air out performed them all."
Cons: "The occasion freezing of the entertainment system must be addressed. I did inform the crew and they did try their best to resolve the issue without success."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and I was happy to get emergency exit row window seat to make the the long flight more comfortable."
Cons: "The food could have definitely been better too many shrimp and fish options even in the morning for breakfast. I was happy there has been a pasta served for dinner otherwise I wouldn’t have eaten the entire flight! Shrimp for breakfast isn’t an option for American folk and the movie selection"
Cons: "Better movies , better vegan food"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Welcoming, helpful and caroming to passengers needs."
Cons: "Replace worn out seats."
Pros: "Nice flight; very comfortable"
Cons: "Short flight; so no in-flight entertainment (no problem though)"
Pros: "Very responsible and kind cabin crew. We were delayed by maybe 8-10 hours because of weather. The crew would have to work all night, but were very kind about the situation."
Cons: "Short flight; so there was no real in-flight entertainment. That's really alright though."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class for free and service was amazing."
Pros: "I paid $14.95 to have a seat selection before departure however, my seat was given is in the middle not the roadside seat I prefer either karak to refund all seat selection charges."
Cons: "I paid $14.95 to have a seat selection before departure however, my seat was given is in the middle not the roadside seat I prefer either karak to refund all seat selection charges."
Cons: "I didn’t realize that Chinese transit visa is needed to transfer at Xiamen airport. When I bought the tickets, I wasn’t notified nor advised to get the Chinese visa. The Xiamen rep at Lax didn’t let me board first and I explained and they gave me the visa waiver paperwork. It was so much of hassle. I’ve laid over many Chinese cities via different airlines and never had any problems. Will not fly again on Xiamen!!"
Cons: "The flights got delayed. One of the flights got delayed without a notice in advance."
Pros: "Flew business class. Cabin crew was some of the most attentive I have experienced. Food was very good and nicely presented. Pillows could be better, but had two. Same with blankets. One thick and puffy, the other lighter. Nice for temperature regulation."
Cons: "First leg lax - Tao delayed almost 3 hours. Fortunately the 2nd leg was delayed 1.5 hours. 3rd leg on this itinerary was also delayed, I could have made the flight, but they gave my seat away. It was a bit of a Charlie Foxtrot rearranging flights and overnighting Hotel. 2.5 hours. A supervisor was needed to sort it all out. We will see if the above was bad circumstances or not. I run the same itinerary in reverse on the way home in a week."
Pros: "The number of take offs equaled the number of landings :)"
Pros: "Plane was new and clean. Flight crew was very friendly. Liked the mood lighting during the flight. Good selection of films to watch during the long flight."
Cons: "The food was okay but they ran out of selection a couple of times so I had no choice what to eat. But that’s it nothing else I didn’t like. Really good airline."
Pros: "Very good service. I have a bad knee and they did a good job of helping. Long layover is ok, they offer free hotel. Side benefit you can be a tourist for a short time."
Cons: "Lounge could be improved. Does not compare to other Airlines Lounges."
Cons: "wrong food?"
Cons: "I was very sick and contagious and asked for a single person hotel room for the night before a connecting flight. It was not accommodated. It would have cost extra 100-200 yuan. Then when we asked for the shuttle to the hotel, the security at the departures level meant we could not exit and be picked up. No one could arrange pick up at arrivals. Instead we paid for a taxi ourselves. Poor service and coordination, especially considering I could barely talk and just badly needed a rest."
Pros: "Friendly and eager to serve crew"
Cons: "Lack of variety on food choices"
Pros: "We left 13 mins late but landed 45 mins earlyearly"
Cons: "My keychain was ripped off from my baggage despite me hiding it. It was stolen by their baggage handler and the airline refused to admit liability and was protecting it Staff. Xiamenair is a corrupted airline which I will not take in the future!"
Cons: "My keychain was ripped off from my baggage despite me hiding it. It was stolen by their baggage handler and the airline refused to admit liability and was protecting it Staff. Xiamenair is a corrupted airline which I will not take in the future!"
Cons: "Nobody helped me switch my flight around, I hate you."
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket I had to purchase my ticket again"
Pros: "food is great"
Cons: "check in time is too long (about 1 hour)"
Pros: "Crew from lax to xiamen were good they took care of my meal from xiamen to bkk . They offered me their food which was pretty generous of them"
Cons: "I called 24 hrs prior to my flight to ask for Vegetarian meal but that was not available... There was so much problem with food . And the toilets were very very dirty :("
Pros: "crew provide excellent and attentive service. food is good"
Cons: "food could be better"
Pros: "Two meals plus sandwich in between were enough to keep me from getting hungry."
Cons: "Boarding line was too long. There was no grouping which means there was a bit of disorder. A check-in counter agent was super slow. Other agents had a supervisor watching over their shoulders so they were much more efficient. The flight ran out of hot tea... but got refilled later. Need more tea cuz most passengers were Chinese."
Pros: "Crew are nice and friendly."
Cons: "Not a nice experience for a 5 hour flight. I don't understand the comments people are posting regarding the entertainment, it was just one poor Chinese movie, no choice at all. Food was poor. Seats were old and not at all spacious. Thankfully i had an empty seat next to me. This was just like a regular China domestic flight."
Pros: "Good was pretty good, with snack sandwich between meals. Drinks were offered often."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes."
Cons: "I couldn't fly because they said there was NO TRANSIT lounge in the airport and I didn't have a VISA to enter China? Who ever heard of a visa for transit?! My destination was Singapore! I am told I have to get a transit visa in order to return home and for me and my son 350!! For 2 hours transit in an airport??? This is NOT a world class airlines, they make their own rules. I will buy another ticket!!"
Pros: "I was forced to buy a new ticket home, which made me discover how wonderful Japan Airlines is..."
Cons: "How are these people still in business? The only people answering customer service hotlines were from the main HQ who only spoke Chinese and would immediately transfer callers to a line for “forgeiners” which would just ring awhile and then disconnect. Same thing happened for at least 10 different people stranded by cancelled flights, even had people trying to call for me from the US. A travel agency was able to switch my friends flights, only to be blocked at his gate by an uninformed Xiamen agent saying he needed a visa for his layover in China, ultimately forcing him to buy a whole new ticket. Xiamen never answered, reimbursed, or recitified any of this. On the flight there, flight attendants had attitudes and SMOKED IN AIRPLANE, it STANK like an ashtray!!! And the food was the worst I ever encountered."
Pros: "Crews, food. Also Transfer Lounge in Xiamen is a good place without charge."
Cons: "Boarding because we have to take bus at Xiamen airport.Also, security checks at Xiamen are very complicated."
Cons: "I missed the connecting flight and was rerouted on a Nov 2, 8:35am China Southern flight from Guangzhou to Manila"
Pros: "Gave me a free hotel when I was transferring in Fuzhou. All I had to pay was the taxi fare of 20kuai. The staff are extremely nice and the food from JFK to FOC was excellent. 2 full meals and a sandwich left me pretty full."
Cons: "It is difficult to get in touch with the English Customer service."
Pros: "Crew and staff are professional and worked well together, fairly efficient"
Cons: "Upon landing, there was a problem with airport customs and immigration which prevented the passengers from leaving the plane. Crew needs to be more proactive with (1) passengers getting up too early and blocking the aisle out of turn. An elder woman was trying to get her bags and exit her row and passengers from behind were not letting her collect and exit. I stopped the rude people from the back who were getting off out of turn. Instructions need to be issued, let people get off the plane in orderly fashion. and (2) crew did not inform passengers what was happening with immigration and customs holdings things up until I hit the service button a few times. Tell the passengers what is going on rather than allow tempers to heat up"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice a professional Seats comfortable Meal size was quite large for economy Domestic"
Cons: "Check In Agent said my ticket was incorrect? Had to go to about three different desks with very limited English. Had a baggage overage that I was happy to pay for but would have had to go to another desk to pay. Would have missed my flight. Hand carried 8 pieces of dry cleaning through the Airport. Not customer saavy or friendly."
Pros: "787 Dreamliner's hardscape was new and clean. IFE was decent but had some anomalies (can't take off of pause unless you shut off screen, select same movie and resume). Food was fairly decent and plentiful. Think a cheap chinese diner & you've got it."
Cons: "Crew was efficient but can't speak Englsh worth a nickel! While I have a limited ability in Mandarin (think 5yo vocab), the announcements in Engrish was almost as bad as some of the translations in many Chinese products. I pity the people who can't understand ANY Chinese: they could not possibly get most of the announcements. They should really get at least 1 FA that can speak and understand English. The signage in Xiamen (I was transiting from LAX to TPE) was amazingly poor and confusing. You basically stumble from 1 floor to another based on the signage. The airport was actually very large for what appears to be a medium size city."
Pros: "International carriers kick butt on US domestic carriers. As a A+ SWA traveler, I know my 787s like the back of my hand. Xiamen had a Business class section (small & unfortunately: untested by me). Economy was as expected but imagine getting a Bao (chicken) & packaged fruit, pastries, pickled cucumbers. Hey, beats a pack of peanuts. You could also get a white or red wine (didn't try them) - all for the price of admission. Take that UA, Delta, & AA! Why can't foreign carriers bring their game to the US routes and really give some competition!"
Cons: "No entertainment (there was some fold down screens playing some ads) but the volume was so low that nobody paid any attention to it. At least someone can read a sentence in English (and there were pre-recorded anouncements)."
Pros: "I love the fact that the program that launches the flight were pretty new, but the fact is; everything run like a well oiled machine. From customer service to departure everything went smoothly. Since the flight was brand new not a lot of people knew about they're great deal. I bought a one way ticket to xiamen because I will be working a school teacher. I didn't realized til later on that it's possible for someone with a z visa to receive an extra 23kg check in baggage for free. I contacted the customer service who replied within a day and everything was fixed. Now, I've been travelling a good amount to China and US, so far the food that are good is xiamen airlines. It's healthy, not greasy, and my stomach didn't hurt."
Cons: "For now ? Nothing. It's my first time riding this airline and I would definitely pick this than China southern or eastern airlines. I have been disappointed with them too many times.... food suck, cramped leg space, and an overabundance of delayed and cancelled flights. Need improvement: it would be nice if the flight attendant don't assume every Asian is Chinese. Over and over the flight attendants would suggest food options, snacks, and drinks in chinese. I understand this won't be the first nor would it be the last that someone would mistaken me as a native Chinese speaker. Overall, the whole experience was amazing!"
Pros: "on time food"
Cons: "no movies"
Pros: "Their price"
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. Then cancellations after!!!"
Pros: "GOOD Service, Great Priceing!!!"
Pros: "Price, Opportunity to check out a city I never would have visited while on extended layovers"
Cons: "Lack of English or hard to understand English was a bit difficult to navigate sometimes with the airline and airports (especially I the Xiamen airport) - less of an issue for me because I'm pretty easy going and able to figure out things and plan ahead without many questions to airport or airline staff - but this could be difficult for a large amount of Non-Chinese speaking Americans with a less excited and curious outlook on travel :)"
Cons: "The food is not Good"
Pros: "Very frustrated experience. Air China, air Canada, budget air, all push responsibilities away. Budget air got my name wrong, too, which would have caused me to not be able to get on the original flight from China anyways."
Cons: "Still I have not been able to get someone to fix my problem for me although I was promised that I could postpone my return flight by one day because of the delay at Victoria airport. Ended up having to buy a return ticket by myself."
Pros: "Crew member helped me get extra space for injured leg by having a passenger next to me find a new seat."
Pros: "Cheap price."
Cons: "The food was not great. No USB charger. The other passengers were noisy."
Pros: "Amazing crew, very polite and helpful Excellent take off and landed super smooth - koodoos to the cockpit team The seats on the aircraft from Beijing to Vancouver was much more comfortable that the aircraft before ( Vancouver to Ho Chi Minh ) but I think that it’s because it is a newer aircraft"
Cons: "The food quality was very poor and portion too small. This could utilize some improvements"
Pros: "Seat very comfortable"
Cons: "Need better food quality and choices."
Cons: "The plane was COLD. The food was absolutely disgusting! The seats are small. Lacking in the movie department. I will not use Air China again."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Food was bland & dull... the same at every meal. Crew did not seem to understand the difference between chicken & duck. EG; "It's chicken & rice"... if it's chicken, why does your colleague say duck? Seats are cramped. No control of your personal environmental comfort - no overhead air nozzle. Crew slow to respond to seat call for assistance."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "The same thing as above"
Pros: "Air China does have excellent economy class prices on trans-Pacific flights. The planes themselves are not bad, and the flight attendants have been good. Overall it could be worse."
Cons: "Both their website and their check-in staff (at Beijing airport especially) can be terrible and frustrating. it is even difficult to manage flights that you book directly on their own website. The check-in staff are grumpy at best. Catering is as bad as it gets. The airline food is a throwback to the 1970s. Drink selection is poor--no fizzy water/soda water/seltzer. Only regular water, coke and sprite, and no spirits at all. Very bad wine and beer with only one choice for each: Great Wall wine, which is sweet and gross, and warm slimy swill beer. The airline could do better by upgrading the website system and having better staff training for customer service."
Cons: "Because of the airplane delayed for one of my stop, I did not catch on my next flight and ended up bought another ticket, I was so disappointed."
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Food and drink options are limited"
Pros: "Food, especially the hot entrees and the salmon salad and the matcha cake"
Cons: "I repeatedly asked for upgrade options, was told 1) Gimpo airport can't process upgrades 2) wait until cabin door closed 3) flight is too full, no seats available when I could see an entire business class section empty. Was charged $110 to check an extra bag. Only one bag of three received upon landing. Airline staff was completely unapologetic and disingenuous, saying my bags would arrive on the next flight at 11 (there was no flight arriving at 11) and then treating me like I was inconveniencing them by needing to leave the airport two hours after my flight landed instead of continuing to wait indefinitely for my bags."
Pros: "On time and great service. Comfortable (with a neck pillow), and good entertainment with recent movies."
Cons: "No charging ports on plane and no vegetarian options for meals."
Pros: "My previous flight was delayed so I missed the plane I was scheduled for, but Air China found me a replacement flight that was only a couple of hours later. Despite the extra passengers from the delayed flight the plane still had a few empty seats and I was able to take an exit seat for extra legroom (I'm 6'5"), although I will still upgrade in future."
Cons: "On the flight out the plane was really warm, so this time I dressed on that basis, but the flight was really quite cold. I guess I'll have to figure out a changable set of cloths in future."
Pros: "on time fast boarding"
Cons: "need salt and pepper for food serves need more spoken english movies"
Pros: "Vert spacious and comfortable. Kind staff made me feel comfortable throughout the 10hr flight."
Pros: "Crews were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Food was edible but horrible! It makes me doubt this country’s 5000-year history of cuisines."
Pros: "Level of Service"
Cons: "Food was overly sweet and not much.. Flight was one hour late landing. Luggage took an hour to be delivered from the plane to passengers."
Cons: "The food was gross. The look and smell of it all was enough to make me just go hungry for the 5 hour flight. Airplane food is not for me."
Pros: "Flight attendants are friendly and accommodating. Willing to meet all my reasonable needs. Meals are Ok."
Cons: "Seats are a little small considering my body size."
Pros: "Big plane"
Cons: "The TV screen is not working"
Cons: "Flight was delayed overnight 6 hours, no communication whatsoever. No attempt to help make connection or apologize.. Service is mediocre at best. Seats are tiny, little to no leg room."
Pros: "I made it to Bangkok and back safely, no delays, no lost luggage."
Cons: "Old plane, gross stained faded fabric on seats, dust cover vents , dirty tray tables. good thing i brought my clorox wipes. Zero leg room, and of course I had tall people behind me so I was unable to recline my seat. The food was terrible the wine was worse.The food was mostly edible on the way there, but on the way back I barley ate anything. There was only one chicken and rice entree that had flavor. Apparently you can not have your phone on the entire flight, good thing i brought my IPAD for entertainment. The entertainment system was mediocre most of the movies were in different languages with english subtitles. I brought wine from duty free in Bangkok, but it was taken during connection by security in Beijing. Maximum volume that you can bring with you is 100ml. The options were to go out and have my wine checked in my carry-on or they will hold it for 30 days and I could come back and picked it up. What a scam, cause you can buy from the duty free in Beijing and bring it with you."
Cons: "It took 30 minutes to take a bus from where we were parked to the terminal another 40 minutes to get through security when we finally made it to the next gate to connecting flight they had closed the gate. After all the work to get a temporary visa so we could get our bags and check back in our next flight was with Philippine airlines"
Pros: "There was a lot of food"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 8 hours due to weather and most likely lack of plane and crew. But the main reason for the bad review is because the whole situation was confusing and no communication and people are left wondering what is going on. A simple acknowledge and short explaintion would had satisfy the people and also they can let their family know whom are waiting to pick them up."
Cons: "Gate crew did not provide any information about delayed departure times. We were told the plane would depart at 20:10 and ended up departing at 22:35. This was already several hours behind the originally scheduled departure time of 15:25."
Cons: "I've flown over seas several times before. Typically, in my experience, the oversea carriers provide an extra bit of leg room for the long distance travel. Air China apparently doesn't feel the need though. My legs were crammed up in the seats and I felt like I was on an 11 hour budget airliner flight. I checked in for my flight as early as possible, but was told there were not emergency exit rows available. Upon entering the plane, I saw the emergency exit row was filled with elderly people who's feet barely touched the floor. In the case of an emergency, it is supposed to be the responsibility of those in the exit row to assist passengers off the plane. I'm young, able bodied, 6'6" and willing to help, but I was denied an exit row seat? Instead my legs have to spill out into the aisle? It wasn't easy for the flight attendants either, because their service carts kept hitting my legs. I didn't mean to make their job harder, but my legs couldn't physically fit in the seat I was given."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, the entertainment screen is very laggy and unresponsive. The options were VERY poor and very few."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online from Beijing. Food is barely edible. Airline stewardess were not the friendliest people. Seats were lumpy. Bathroom faucet was corroded."
Pros: "Rude crew. Have had better food on other airlines. Wasn't allowed to listen to music on my iPod at any point during the 9 plus hour flight. Flight was late leaving Beijing, just as it was when i was there 12 days before waiting for another flight one of their flights to Manila and missed my connection flight in Vancouver because of it. Couldn't wait to land and get off the plane."
Pros: "They accommodated to my vegetarian diet"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because of late landing"
Pros: "It was okay. The crew was fine, food was okay,"
Cons: "Comfort. Maybe because im a lil bit large, should be more choices on entertainment"
Pros: "Food was pretty good, flight attendants pretty nice"
Cons: "Only overhead entertainment, an hour delayed"
Cons: "Couldn't touch your phone."
Pros: "The crew were really nice and pleasant Leg space was a better than Mumbai to Beijing"
Cons: "The Air -china crew English need to be improved The non-veg food was a little mediocre"
Cons: "I didn't like that FlightNetwork confirmed my flight, but then never ticketed it. I did not realize till I was at the airport and it was too late. my whole family was late to our vacation and had to re-purchase a last minute ticket to leave the next day instead. This does not reflect on AirChina, but the Kayak booking process. Reading some other reviews here, it seems this happened to others. Terrible!"
Cons: "The staff were rude and over all air china is quite disorganized. Their website barely works and it was impossible to get any real answers out of the agents on the phone. I tried to request a celiac or gluten free meal and it took 3 phone calls to get an agent who was aware there were even choices. Also, as I'm aware I'm flying in another country I would have like to see more English speaking competence amongst staff flying an international flight from Asia to Canada and back. The staff were not helpful. Like drones with no time for you. This to me is not service. And an airline is providing a service."
Pros: "Reasonable food. Old chairs but OK."
Cons: "Crazy rules - can't use phones in airplane mode to read books? So so food. Terrible entertainment."
Pros: "Great comfortable flight. Good service and food"
Cons: "Going down the stairs from the plane to the tarmac."
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive in manila with me. It takes 4 days before I recieved manila personel are not helpul at all. When I ask them the statuse of my bag they dont know and they said they said they well call me buy never recieved the call when i call them they said they have it but it take 6 days to be delivered. I told them only in the philippines take that long. Butom line they are very rud to me nor welling to help."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Communication was challenging as my first language is english. Entertainment centre would lock up and freeze for all flights (I took 4). The plane seemed old and a bit sketchy. There was no boarding call, I just happened to be standing where I needed to go."
Cons: "Can't reserve a seat on line even"
