Food was decent

They've gave us the wrong flight times,had to pay and extra 100$ a head to get on the flight we were originally scheduled for. Arrived in shanghai, and again was given the wrong flights and has to stay an night in shanghai delaying our entire trip,forcing us to be a day behind for everything. Still worried our flights home won't be correct. Will never fly with then again, everyone beware.

Prices was good, apart from that it was all very average.

The crew weren't that friendly and it was really hard to understand announcements over the PA. The screens were ok but the sound was awful - it made everything almost unwatchable.

Too many things to mention, I'll just say this: you get what you pay for!

Broken seats, rude staff, terrible food, delayed takeoff (1hr). Will take a more widely known airline next time, its worth the extra cost!

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.

Stewardess seems very annoyed with flight. There was turbulence so the passengers needed to stay seated - a gentleman next to me asked for a glass of water since there was no refreshment service - the stewardess was very short with him.

The staff spoke English very well at ICN, which was a nice change compared to China, where I live and work. They listened and understood my concerns, especially about having little time between flights, not knowing what to do next, and needed their assistance with getting my luggage forwarded.

Usually I love ICN airport. I was not aware there was another terminal, kilometres away by shuttle bus, that I needed to use between flights. If not for the extremely helpful information booth staff at station E, who arranged to have my luggage forwarded to my final definition, barely in time when the flights were purchased separately, I would have missed my flight trying to get my luggage then check it again, in addition to all the other steps. This time, I found the various steps in the procedure unpredictable. The signage is great but I didn't know what I was to do next.

Smiling flight atendents. This is my first travel with China southern On the other hand during 6 wk prior to our trip we were unable to get anybody on the phone to ask Q or reserve a seat. On line charades where like a closed loops ! The price for long haul: Dubai/Guangzhou/cairns could not be beat!!

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.

I liked the plane. 787’s are the smoothest rides.

Xiamen Airlines should be applauded for having a direct flight from LA to Qingdao. But they have a lot to learn about the proper service and materials in business class. Not surprisingly, they have gone for the cheapest way to service the customer. Lot to learn.

1. Friendly crew and attention 2. Affordable direct flight from LAX to XMN 3. Good timing

1. Seat cushion is too thin, resulting in painful butt after 12-14 hrs flight 2. The in-seat screen doesn't tilt, thus when front passenger reclined seat, the screen is right in front of your face (less than 5-inches). You need to crank your neck down to watch any programming which results in neck pain 3. Entertainment and food have much room to improve

I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!
