Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "Baggage Claim"
Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen.

Cons: "Guangzhou to Toronto, the cabin was a little warm for my liking, I don't think it ever got below 25°c in there, for me it made it a bit difficult to sleep. This was not the case on my flight from Toronto to Guangzhou so maybe this was just an isolated case."

Cons: "Flight was late. Disembarked at the China Southern repair building. Miles from the terminal"
Pros: "Flight attentendents are excellent"

Cons: "I loved everything!"
Cons: "I'm sorry but the Chinese push people and crowd people like no other. There's no such thing as personal space. For that reason, I won't book on this airline again. The Beijing Airport wasn't pleasant. Had to sit downstairs in the basement gate area just to get internet connection which was non existent. Airport was pretty small to be waiting around for 3 hours. Won't connect through there again."

Cons: "Obtaining a Visa in China was a nightmare. China southern had 100 people sitting in a small room waiting hours to even get their passports back. It was disorganized and frustrating. Would never fly China Southern internationally again."

Cons: "I reserved the wheel chair service but when I checked in at the counter with the wheel chair symbol, I was told they changed the counter to the other one which is far away and they also rejected to help me check in there. I had to move to the one with a long queue to handle those standby customers. This is my worst experience ever. The service of China Southern airline is becoming worse and worse. Never recommend again."

Pros: "Non stop Flight to Guangzhou,Timing of the is good you can start your work earlier."
Cons: "only they serve is chines food , They should have 2 options. they dint have any new movies"

That was a nice way to spend what would've been a boring layover."
Cons: "Online checkin did not work."

Pros: "Everything is excellent"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "I had just suffered multiple breaks in my arm/shoulder and was returning to the States. I was in considerable pain and flying alone - this was the first flight out I could get. Everyone was AMAZING. From helping to rearrange seats, other passengers, and even upgrade to maximize comfort and minimize more damage to my arm to helping open any food packages so that I could eat with medication and checking in on me frequently, I couldn't have asked for better attention given the situation. I hadn't heard of this airline before but now highly recommend - they were amazing through two flight legs, two different airline crews, and 3 airports. Cannot thank the crew enough for their attention and care during a very difficult time. I am a frequent traveler and this is the best customer experience I've ever had."

Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Welcoming, helpful and caroming to passengers needs."
Cons: "Replace worn out seats."
Pros: "No real problems"
Cons: "Nothing significant"
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: "Crew's Services"
Cons: "Snacks and water ran out during the last several hours of the flight. For shorter people, their feet would have difficulty touching the floor."
Pros: "Getting off of the plane"
Cons: "This was a discount garbage carrier. I have ridden on cargo boats off the coast of Nicaragua that I would recommend before Xiamen. They don’t give you your connecting boarding pass when you leave the country. You have to go through China’s bullshit customs service three times just to get to your next flight. Chinese customs is like a bowl full of retarted fish smelling their own farts. Six people doing nothing while one blithering idiot Stubles through paperwork."
Cons: "The flight left before we get there. I had to book a train ticket to my final destination because I have to be in Fuzhou that day. I was told by the airline that I would be reimbursed the air fare from Xiamen to Fuzhou."
Cons: "The flights got delayed. One of the flights got delayed without a notice in advance."
Pros: "The plane was new, the plane was clean, and all the airline hostesses were not 65 years old. Oh and everyone complaining about the visa requirements for China. Bend over a take one for the team like a man just Go to a travel agent in any in China Town. $100 US will get you a bias good for 10 years and it only take a week. Otherwise fly Delta for $1200."
Cons: "Limited selection of English language movies but hey it was a China airline so no bit surprise there."
Cons: "Why is my passport number wrong?"
Pros: "The number of take offs equaled the number of landings :)"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Still a little more leg room but not as much as on the 787. Had to ask twice to get a Thai immigration form and the crew took an above average amout of time to pickup after the meals were finished."
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: "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."
Cons: "u had to transfer ur luggages even though its the same airline. what a joke? u had to get through numerous security points to get through the airport what the hell?"
Pros: "Kept me well hydrated, supplied tissues that helped me bear a long flight while sick. Early arrival appreciated. Fresh fruit was good."
Cons: "Crew might have cleared away medications by mistake but they tried hard to find it, inquired all attendants and even looked through the trash. I missed the passing of of declaration forms twice while I was in the bathroom and when we landed the customs people directed me wrong so I had to wait a long time in line to get through customs without water which made me sicker and I had to go to the doctor."
Pros: "Complimentary wifi and excellent crew service"
Cons: "The econ seat is too low, when front seater tilted the seat backward, the screen is right in front of my face. Entertainment video screen doesn’t adjust; in other words, it cannot be adjust in angle, causing neck pain over time. Meals are average, definitely different from the quality compared to regional or domestic equivalent. Very sad, considering that Xiamen Air has a good reputation inside China. The restroom is also poorly stocked — no toilet roll constantly"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice and courteous!"
Cons: "Couldn't be helped, it was just a long flight!"
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!"
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."
Cons: "They will cheat u of money. Somehow. Beware."
Cons: "I was denied a boarding pass and was not allowed to transit through China, because of a visa that was needed I was not told about by Kayak.com. Therefore, being the last day I was allowed to stay in Thailand, I had to scramble to find an outbound flight the same day, including paying almost double the cost of the original flight. The Thai check-in agent told me to never transit through mainland China again, because the visa requirement information that is not provided."
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."
Pros: "Crew, comfort, food, entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly, professional and excellent!"
Cons: "The 10 hour layover :("
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control. Subsequently I missed my connecting flight -- Xiamen to Manila that evening and had to spend another night in China. Next flight out of Xiamen was 6pm, Nov 2. Xiamen ground staff was very helpful in booking me the option to fly China Southern to Guangzhou the night of Nov 1, stay for free in a hotel, and then take the 0835 morning China Southern flight from Guangzhou to Manila. It was difficult to identify the right people to speak with and get clear assistance and direction in both Xiamen and Guangzhou."
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: "Crew was excellent"
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: "Excellent, friendly service on a terrific plane. More leg room than the average (American) airline for a long flight. Had to call Customer Service. They were as helpful as they could be."
Cons: "There was no computer check-in even for people with no bags to check. Long wait on line to check-in. Probably could use more staff at airport. TSA wait that night was also very long. Not Xiamen's fault of course."
Pros: "Service in flight was great ! Meals were surprisingly tast and the seatback entertainment was well equipped for the 13 hour journey"
Cons: "Since the airline is so small, they don't schedule agents for check-in prior to a couple hours before boarding. That was a bit frustrating when we wanted to be at the gate early."
Pros: "on time food"
Cons: "no movies"
Pros: "Their price"
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. Then cancellations after!!!"
Cons: "The delay was extremely horrible causing us to miss our flight and then put us on a flight that was once again delayed for another 6 hours. The crew was still hesitant on disclosing the time we would be leaving"
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 :)"
