Pros: "Food and comfort"
Cons: "Not so much to watch"
Pros: "Boarded on time and quickly. Smooth ride made me fall asleep for most of the flight almost the second I sat down (I had been out the night before so that probably also explains it). They left a note saying I was sleeping when they gave out meals and offered it to me even though we were about to descend. I didn't eat the food, nor did I use the in-flight entertainment, so I can't attest to the quality in those regards."
Cons: "Seats a little uncomfortable but this time around I got a window seat as well as two empty seats behind me so I was able to stretch out a bit more and be liberal with my space."
Pros: "Food, service"

Pros: "Crew is rather polite and courteous."

Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been."

Pros: "Aircraft is well kept and clean. Crew members are attentive and alert.check in process was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Charging of excess baggage on second piece of luggage checkedin. Amount is too steep. Selection of movies could be expanded esp the korean selection since its korean air? Current selection of korean movies was only 5!"
Cons: "As I was about to board, I was denied carrying on my backpack with the few items I would need for the flight, so I was forced to put them into my carry-on suitcase which was loaded elsewhere, out of reach.. The insanity of it all - so glad the woman can count to two - is that I was forced by this angry person to carry my laptop and tablet onto the airplane in my hand, as she absolutely would not allow me to put them into my empty backpack, claiming this would constitute a third item. Of course, no one else was forced to take their computers out of their protective cases, only myself, because it was a backpack. I am 66 years old, travelling alone, and frankly am not the only international traveler who experiences unbelievable rudeness when in US airports."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "seat spacing good in economy personal entertainment system crew very helpful and courteous good overhead storage"
Cons: "On 2 of our 4 flights on this itinerary, we were last to be served meals and there was only the Korean meal left. My husband chose to eat it both times but I declined... need to provide more western meals."

Pros: "Timeliness Appearance of crew. More leg room. Variety of entertainment"

They looked at me and deliberately ignored me. This happened on Flight from Houston to Manila. From Hong Kong to Seoul and especially from Seoul to Houston. I had to ask thrice for a head phone before I got one. I was wide awake."

Cons: "Flight was delayed a little"
Cons: "More movies."
Cons: "More movies."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Air hostess did not offer hot drinks"
Cons: "The crew service very lack"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Pros: "Comfortable Economy class on A330. Adequate seating and a good breakfast pastry for a short duration flight."
Cons: "Older entertainment system but not a big issue on a short flight."
Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "The only problem is if you need to go in the first flight at 6am to Hong-Kong.... they will only open the check in at 4:30 and usually you find a big waiting line. You won’t have time to do anything stead check in, go directly to inspection, after to migration to finally go straight ahead to the gate to hopefully have time to enter in the flight... to tide"

Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Boarded with delay"
Pros: "Only complaint was the disembarking routine. They emptied all of business and first before coach could even begin to leave the coach cabin. I am all in favor of giving business and first preference in getting off the plane, but this was just too much, waiting for the slowest person in business to get off before a single person could leave the coach cabin."

Pros: "Super easy to book, loved the notifications of baggage claim number upon exiting the flight. Great itinerary too."

Pros: "Kind workers and excellent food"

Cons: "I dont eat pork and both meals have pork in it."
Cons: "Curry chicken noodles"
Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."

Cons: "the food was gross, I got a horrible stomach ache when I got back for 3 days and a migraine. The seats were uncomfortable even though I am 5'2 pretty short but it was a painful flight. The 5 hour layover was terrible but I understand it was the shortest we could find."
Pros: "Staff is friendly. Food is ok"
Cons: "Explain the real reason why the flight is 6 hours delayed. They said “ operational issues.” If we never asked for further instructions, we would never get $ 9 meal vouchers. In other words, some of passengers didn’t get it"

Cons: "Nothing unusual."
Pros: "very efficient, very friendly, and an excellent value for the price."
Cons: "Again, we got very good service for what we paid."
Pros: "Loved it all."
Cons: "IMAGINE the flight back from TPE-Hong Kong-CNX. “I thought” I book with Hong Kong Airlines BUT the second part was Hong Kong Express; a cheaper subsidiary by someone ? They blanking sell EVERYTHING; seats, food, drinks & likely to go to the bathroom. The flight IS suppose to take off at 16:45 ("
Pros: "The ticket price is reasonable."

Pros: "It was fine."
Cons: "They didn't have my vegetarian meal request."
Cons: "Better meals"
Cons: "I could have paid attention to the warning to make sure that my name appears EXACTLY as it does on my passport. I was not able to board because the ticket name and the passport name didn’t match exactly."
Cons: "We are not happy and had to buy new tickets for travel for $10,000"
Pros: "It was fine. The price was good."
Cons: "No alcohol"
Pros: "They gave us a meal. Hkg to tpe"
Cons: "Asked for extra bread , didn't give but other than that it was nice"
Pros: "The flight was cheaper by a couple hundred dollars."

Pros: "didn't take it"
Cons: "Not even bad word."
Pros: "Very simple and efficient. Enjoyed flying with Hong Kong Airlines"
Cons: "No bad"
Pros: "Simple. No bells and whistles. Cheap price"
Cons: "No charging or Wi-Fi available for purchase"
Pros: "Had 3 suitcases (after giving one with items we live without. Still cost us 1900 Hong dollars"
Cons: "Reported above."
Cons: "Meals were terrible Ran out of wine Tiny iPad for movies Earphones were useless Never Again!"
Pros: "The price is very attractive I like to use the iPad. The seat is not narrow."
Cons: "Poor dining (main course). the seat is not soft enough"
Pros: "The breakfast was excellent and the staff polite and caring! Free movie a great bonus and free headphones!"
Pros: "An average experience. The seat is large enough for economy. The flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "I wish slippers were provided as our flight was in the middle of the night. The in-flight entertainment was a local TV program on a shared screen. I wore an eye mask so it didn't bother me too much, but it sucked that I couldn't just turn it off."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport late (my own fault) and narrowly missed the boarding window. Rather than offer to assist me in getting to the gate, as I have done for other flights that I have been slightly late for, the representative flatly told me that I was out of luck. I purchased a one-way ticket through another vendor, as I needed to go on this trip. When I went to use the return ticket (that I had already purchased) to return home, I was told that I could not use this ticket because I had not used the other ticket first. They would not even let me re-buy the ticket that I had already purchased, simply allowing the seat to go to waste. This policy does not make any sense, and it is even more infuriating that I could not re-buy the seat that was going to be empty anyways. I will never fly with Hong Kong Airlines again, regardless of how much cheaper the tickets may be."
Cons: "Very hot in the cabin."
Pros: "Good service . Did there best to please."
Cons: "If I had known that they use a very different seat from their advertised flat beds I would not have paid for biz class. Simply not worth it."
Pros: "In seat entertainment, USB and power outlets at each seat, a blanket larger than a dinner napkin in economy."
Cons: "Unexpectedly had to check bag because of weight; no charge though so not a big deal. Confusing self-check-in kiosks at airport in Taiwan, but also not a big problem."
Cons: "Terrible meal"
Cons: "only one bread & juice for three hours fight."
Pros: "Entertainment options - the tv headrests had tv's in them with a wide selection of movies available."
Cons: "I was injured on this flight. The crew flying the plane often changed altitude rapidly and without warning, without leaving time for air pressure to equalize. As a result, at one point during the flight the air pressure in my ears was so bad that the pain physically felt equal to the worst migraine I've ever experienced. We're talking head splitting pain. After the flight I was practically deaf for 3 days as I recovered, and the pressure did not equalize again until I was on another flight that ascended to around 8,000 meters. The tv personal entertainment system cut off 10 minutes into the flight (or at least the crew said it did - mine still worked, perhaps it was down for other passengers) they said it would be back on in 15 minutes, then it never came back on during the flight for the other passengers - but since mine was unaffected I don't consider this a negative. Overall, I would never ride with this airline again. What passenger plane had a problem with airpressure? Certainly none other that I've ever flown on. 0/10"
Cons: "The sit can't adjusted and smelly"
Cons: "Not much room"
Pros: "It's cheap, unreasonably cheap. My ticket costs only three fourths of their counterparts. And their in-flight service is "fair" for the price I paid."
Cons: "For those purchase the ticket at a low price (like me), their service is fair. However, for those who paid more one thousand and three hundred dollars, I think they need a full refund. For the price tag similar to Cathay Pacific, they cannot even give me a blanket or even a pen. Furthermore, their customer service is quite slow. I accidently left my passport on the airplane, and it takes nearly two hours to get it back. I told the representative that I need to catch the last bus, but they can do nothing to help since each department is outsourced. I wish you don't need any urge help from Hong Kong Airlines because you will always be disappointed."
Cons: "Air was so hot & dry I could barely breathe!!!!!!"
