Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Food and service."
Pros: "The FAs were all awesome & helpful. Restrooms were clean all the time. They even carried my sister’s hand carry luggage to the waiting cart upon arrival in Incheon."
Cons: "LAX boarding gate was awful. We walked up to boarding area which was soooo far. Then rode a shuttle w very very limited seats so my disabled sister had to stand in the crowded shuttle before walking again to another boarding area. It was horrible."
Pros: "Crews were absolutely amazing. They had been so helpful and kind during the entire trip"
Cons: "It was just perfect"
Pros: "seat is very poor im a small person and the is to small!not comfortable!"
Cons: "not recomended!"
Cons: "Layover in Seoul at 3.30am. Nothing is open - even the lounge does not open until 5am"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food could have been better. The entertainment center was also somewhat outdated."
Pros: "Such a pleasant flight compared to the 3 other flights I had taken on this trip. The crew were friendly and food was delicious!"
Pros: "Sits are a bit bigger than other airlines. Food tasted better and treatment was great as well."
Cons: "The touchscreen for entertainment was a bit off. From both flights using this airline, that was the main issue in comparison to other similar airlines."

Pros: "Staff and flight crew were all really nice, very professional and attentive. Decent range of video/movies available. 2 meals - ok"
Cons: "Delays on both legs of flight- significant and multiple delays from jfk to icn... made the experience not so great, as my daughters 1st time flying this didn't help - and no compensation at all. Emails and notifications not in english! Not given an actual reason for flight delay. Seats VERY uncomfortable, might as well be no cushioning on the seats in economy. With such long flights you would think that an airline would want even economy to be somewhat comfortable sitting for 14hrs or more"
Pros: "Our flight is only Incheon to Narita and later that night our final destination is LAX. I have checked in to Singapore Airlines the day before our flight. While checking in at the Incheon airport, the ground attendant ask me for my final destination. After a few minutes, shw mentioned that our baggage will be picked up at LAX. I was so relieved since this trip was 3 weeks with 3 50lbs luggage and 2 10 lb backpacks. I imagined going to Japanese Immigration again and explaining the reason for the entry. Because of this our layover is seamless. Star Alliance made it so easy for us to take their airlines anytime. Kudos to Star Alliance. Oh, the legroom is roomy for Economy! Nothing can compare with their airbus. I am only 5foot1inch and its like having a lounging chair. My husband whose 5’10” is happy with the space. Thanks for thinking of your passengers!"

Cons: "The sound of the intercom during announcement of pilot coz it is weak."
Pros: "The posted schedule and price of ticket"

Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent"
Cons: "Both of the flight were 2-3 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful. They always had a smile. The food was delicious too."
Pros: "Food was OK but nothing spectacular. Variety of beverage is OK, there was a snack in between meals, overall, the flight is good and by expectation for the price I got for the tickets."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable,"
Pros: "i think asiana is one of the best airline in market for their professional services. thanks."
Cons: "The food is always our problem, bec we r not used to eating Korean food, and by the time they ask us what food we can get? They run out every time they get to us , who , like us who are in the back seats- all is left is Korean food and we have no choice! Please make more food varieties, thank you"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "2/4 bathrooms were out of order"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Pros: "Everything except my have severe gi distress"
Cons: "That i got sick from somthing vegetarian served on 2 asiana flights. Im still sick 2.5 days later after arrival"
Pros: "The service and experience was excellent"
Cons: "I only wish the seats were more comfortable for such a long flight. I understand that the length of the flight cannot be changed… It is just difficult to set the entire time. I wish the premium seats cost less so that I could afford to lay down"
Pros: "Food was delish (esp the Korean options), and crew was very courteous. The plane going to our destination had an updated online entertainment system -- touch screen worked w/o too much effort and the control was an easy reach from in front of you but I can't say the same for the flight back which i think is an older plane."
Cons: "I was getting sick and had fever the day i was going to fly back home. I was contemplating moving my flight but wanted to know if I could do it without getting charged (say if I had a doctor's note from the hospital) or at least how much I would have to pay... I didn't get to ask at all because (1) it was hard for me to find the correct customer service to call and (2) when I reached it, I was asked to call again as services were busy. I ended up taking the flight sick because I didn't want to rack up extra charges. Also, I find the seats pressing on to my thighs if my legs are in a relaxed position (meaning not trying to keep my knees together as if I was in a job interview). I've had to put a blanket or pillow between me and the armrests so they wouldn't hurt. Some airplanes have thinner more streamlined armrests and those have made some of my other travels more comfortable."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The seats we comfortable and the food was pretty good. I would fly Asiana again without hesitation."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great experience."
Pros: "I got delay which make me dont have enough time to check in at LA"
Pros: "They have a mom line, which is awesome but my husband was gold so we didnt need it, but As a mom of 2 I appreciate that! Smooth check in."
Cons: "Staff not as engaging as others, very little communication because I only spoke English?, but pleasant enough. As with all flights, no leg room."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "I though on the website it had wifi. The movies are the same between both flight. The news was two days behind and no direct air.solidfood. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Just a great experience. Crew is great seats are comfortable. Almost didn't realize i was stuck on a plane for 12 hours."
Cons: "Meal. I don't eat fish and in elerjec to mushrooms and allot of meals seemed to have them."
Pros: "Crew very helpful..but hard to understand their english.."
Cons: "Food not good"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent, they were very attentive. My wife accidentally hit the call button and a stewardess came running over. Food was good and we got two options. which were good. I would definitely fly Asiana Airlines again."
Cons: "The plane was an older 747 and so everything is a dated. My main complaint is not with the airline, but we booked using airline.com. In doing so, we were unable to pick our seats even though we booked seven months in advance."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Korean dish options and having metal silverware was a nice touch. The cabin crew was very attentive and friendly throughout the flight. The legroom was pretty good for a coach seat."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little chaotic. There was a gate change at Pudong Airport and we had to leave from a lower level gate which involves bus ride to the plane. And there was a long wait after the initial bus until further busses came. Then we stayed on the ground for quite a while until we were allowed to take off, maybe one hour or more late."
Pros: "I liked the little blanket, that.s about it. Convenient arrival/departure times."
Cons: "Food was skimpy. Counted three rude/bossy stewardess transactions. My Asiana flights used to be delightful. Now they are nothing special at best."
Pros: "nice seating on this plane. Roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "Korean passengers smell bad"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "The entertainment console was very outdated. You couldn't select a movie as it played on a reel--so you had to wait until it was over to watch it. ALso, the screen would go blank or black and would be fuzzy not due to turbulence but just plain bad equipment. The stewardess couldn't help as it was something they could obviously not correct. This made the 12 hour flight not fun."
Cons: "I wad so confused. I wonder Why your call centers registered in korea, china and u.s in lost service always? Instead of me, a hotel manager talked with call center after so many trying. But just told her it was my fault and you cut the call. I think your customer service team helped me more proper and instantly. But I was so sorry because your team just tell me to cancel and to rereserv again. Of course It was one of the solution I agree. If I buy the other ticket. I can get a boarding pass with my name is on it with rightly wrritten. Beyond reponsibility, please think about my side in china. I hope you check about my comment and to think about your attitude. To consider your side, Just send you message individually. Thanks"
Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"

Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"

Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
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: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good snacks. Timely updates about delays.cr"
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve several rows of seats including ours. Came around when reminded, but then said didn't have enough hands to carry trash away and told us to store cups, etc in back seat pocket when landing."
Pros: "The food was surprising good, especially the Japanese meal. The flight attendants were pleasant. Long flight but at least the entertainment choices for movies were good. I'm happy the provided snacks in the galley and walked around cabins offering water and drinks often."
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated without electrical outlets and a dated entertainment system. The earphones seemed cheap"
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi"
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Pros: "Cops is always a good reason to flight"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."

Cons: "Excelente aerolínea"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort, food could have been better."
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"

Pros: "That I was able to sleep a bit on the flight - and that we gained an hour."
Cons: "It left at 6 am. Which means we had a wake up call from the airport hotel at 3:30 am to stand in line with hundreds of others. The Air France app on my phone didn't let me pre- check in."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seated in the last row and non adjustable seating, so very little leg room. Dis-enbarkment was very slow."
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Cons: "Waited a while before take off."
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Pros: "Todo muy bien Volvería a viajar con ellos."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"

Cons: "Food, crew appear rushed"
Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pros: "Nothing..worst experience ever. Simply apologising for delayed doesn't help"
Cons: "Flight into and out of indiapolis was delayed by 2 hours. Missed my connection flight to LHR because of the delay. never had such a flying experience. Flight was operated by Delta. I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Cons: "delay for one hour with not even a glass of water very old plan video with tiny screens and bad resolution food quality especially bread is not good"
Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."
Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."
Pros: "The aircrew are very friendly. The staff at CDG were very helpfull with our connecting flight."
Cons: "The seats are very cramped for tall people, especially when the passenger in front of you reclines their seat."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice."
Cons: "The temperature for this leg of the trip seemed very cold. I wore 2 sweaters & a jacket plus the blanket. Hard to rate entertainment (I wasn't aware of any)."

Pros: "There was a good amount of leg room for an economy seat"
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger movie selection"

Pros: "great price and overall service"
Pros: "attentive and polite flight attendants"
Pros: "The Xiamen reps at the SGN airport was insensitive and arrogant. We were not able to board because of a misunderstanding on the China visa-free program. I still fully believe they are wrong. I had to book 2 new one way tickets with China Southern and wait all day at the airport."
Cons: "Helpful, courteous, and well-informed Xiamen representatives."

Cons: "no other comment"
Pros: "Staff was nice"

Pros: "yes crew were amazing"
Cons: "ticketing was terrible, id number is totally different from our passport.causing lots of ordeal in check in and security check"

Pros: "No problems for the price"
Cons: "Ok no problems for the price"
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: "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: "They left my luggages at SeaTac. I am at China right now, and I don’t know when they are going send them to me. All my stuff in the luggage now I have buy everything again."
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."
Cons: "Why is my passport number wrong?"
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."
Pros: "No problem with staff"
Cons: "Food is okay"
Pros: "1. Friendly crew and attention 2. Affordable direct flight from LAX to XMN 3. Good timing"
Cons: "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"
Pros: "Price and flight were great. Communicating was small problem. 5 am arrival nothing open so couldn't change money for food, taxi etc. Finally found an ATM that worked. People used their cell phones to try and communicate."
Cons: "Some obstacles with early morning arrival and communications"
Pros: "Friendly and eager to serve crew"
Cons: "Lack of variety on food choices"
Pros: "I liked the plane. 787’s are the smoothest rides."
Cons: "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."
Cons: "Nobody could rearrange any flights for me, zero help!"
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: "entertainment choices were good"
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: "Seat were comfortable , staff friendly"
Cons: "The long layover"
Pros: "Crew working hard. Seat comfort and clean restroom."
Cons: "Awful food. I basically not eating, going hungry."
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."
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: "The food was good and staff was friendly"
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: "The offerings of beverages and the choices were good"
Cons: "Lack of communication by staff. Lack of entertainment on 14 hour flight. Was told not to use device while others were able to use."
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: "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: "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: "In-flight service were adequate. Not much offer for alcoholic beverages. Staff not much English speaking."
Cons: "Xiamen is very bad for transit passenger. 3 immigration check points 3 security baggage checks Has to pick up boarding pass with long lines. Cannot reserve seat on line."
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: "The entertainment system the company provides for international flights is very nice. Movies and games keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flight was Shanghai to Fuzhou, 10 hour layover and Fuzhou to JFK. Our flight from Shanghai to Fuzhou was delayed for 3 hours for "inclement weather" - it was clear in Shanghai. Flight company communicated to progressive, who the flight was booked through, that the flight would be an hour late, so I received a text saying new departure time would be an hour later. This was false. After that hour the only messages we were getting at the airport were "flight is delayed, new departure time will be announced later". We arrived in Fuzhou 3 hours later, at 0300. The bus ride to the hotel provided by the airline is one hour each way, and our connecting flight was 0900, so it was a waste of time to try to get to the hotel. This means we just stayed in the airport all night and boarded our next 15 hour flight with no sleep, no shower and nothing to eat. Customer service for flight would announce turbulence every 3 minutes, even after plane was having turbulence for 10-15 minutes. This freezes entertainment. Etc etc. many other small disorganized things as well."
Pros: "Flight crew very courteous. Xiamen Airline crews are always very good, and most flights are pleasant."
Cons: "3 hour delay, with no explanation given!"
Cons: "As everyone was lining up at the gate to board, a guy came out yelling at everyone is Chinese. I have no idea what he said but it didn't sound good. We sat on the plane for 1.5 hr waiting to depart. An announcement was finally made that there was some kind of issue with air traffic, we ended up almost 2 hrs delayed. The volume on the media device in front of me was not working. The seats were terribly uncomfortable, my butt was hurting after the first hour."
