Airline reviews

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 are amazing"

Pros: "Crew was very good and professional, yes the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I think the Xiamen knows how to run an airline."

Cons: "Chinese airlines often require you to take a bus at boarding and then carry your suitcases up large flights of steps to enter the plane - this was the case in Xiamen. This flight often is delayed and this was the case. The food was below average. WiFi is free but it blocks google and gmail."

Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Don’t let customer wait long time for gate after landing"

Cons: "Hope to keep departure on time !!!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was great, and seat was comfy compare to other European airlines seats"
Cons: "Less salt in the food would’ve been better"

Pros: "Just good overall. Beats any American carrier (which is not saying too much!)."
Cons: "Was late. But they were very apologetic (not their fault). Seattle port entry is HORRIBLE. I thought China was bad!"

Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "The food vegan Movies"

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"

Cons: "got severe food poisoning from the airline food."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was charge a terribly high exchange rate for this tickets! Not acceptable at all."

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."

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."

Pros: "The Chinese people were wonderful! But I was required to pass thru security checks 3 times arriving. 3 times transiting and 3 times leaving. At customs, transit and departure. No common sense to their process only"letter of the law". For example I was taking beef jerky to my friends in Thailand but the Chinese security has a meat sniffing dog and they confiscated it as well as the girl in front of me More than $100 worth of jerky. They should have given it back at departure gate. I had to buy more in their duty free shop. Also they cancelled my flight without advising me but did get me on Thai airways later that day. Too much hassle to Transit China"
Cons: "Security"

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."

Pros: "Finally getting a flight the next day"
Cons: "My seat was given to someone even though I still had time to make the connection."

Cons: "Why is my passport number wrong?"

Pros: "The number of take offs equaled the number of landings :)"

Cons: "We meet different problem in this flight. First, the boarding start late and we arrive late more than one hour. They could organize the entrance with range of number. The food was ok, but the beverage is poor, just half glass of wine or juice. no more. one small bottle should be normal fro lunch or dinner."

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: "wrong food?"

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"

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: "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 flight crew was kind..really hard working.."
Cons: "I was not informed before hand I needed a visa to enter China..Xiamen international airport does not have transit lounge...so leaving on the 6 December from Lax to Xiamen ..I was denied to fly Xiamen so they scrambled last minute an put me on China southern airlines...upon return from Singapore I had to pay for Chinese visa since I was to return through Xiamen...it was a nightmare"

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: "Nobody helped me switch my flight around, I hate you."

Pros: "entertainment choices were good"

Pros: "Even though the flight was short, a simple meal was served and it tasted great. It was around dinner time but I wasn't expecting a meal. The flight crew was friendly and professional also."
Cons: "The flight landed at an outlying terminal and we had to be bussed to the main terminal. Just a little inconvenience."

Pros: "Good was pretty good, with snack sandwich between meals. Drinks were offered often."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes."

Cons: "直飞"

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."

Cons: "XiamenAir lost one of my bags and has still not found it"

Pros: "Crew was super friendly, professional and excellent!"
Cons: "The 10 hour layover :("

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: "They redirected me to other carriers"
Cons: "Show up and the flight was delayed 4 hours. No reason given. My layover in Xiamen was only 2 hours. They kept wanting me to fly the next day. When I complained loud enough they finally yielded and found an alternative to LAX."

Pros: "Overall Ok"
Cons: "They stole my laptop on board, and they cannot secure the thief even though we know who it was My bike bag was broken"

Pros: "Their price"
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. Then cancellations after!!!"

Pros: "GOOD Service, Great Priceing!!!"

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."

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."

Pros: "Comfortable and friendly"
Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "The flight from JFK to Fuzhou was enjoyable. Plenty of leg room and the entertainment kept me occupied throughout the flight. The food was excellent. They provide 2 full meals, 1 half meal and a snack, where I wasn't hungry at all throughout the 14+ hr flight."
Cons: "It was almost impossible to get in touch with an English speaking representative. I tried to call to confirm my booking that I made through kayak.com. When I got in touch, the rep from an overseas office barely spoke English and didn't help at all. Thankfully everything worked out at the airport. Found out that JFK-FOC is only 2 months old. Hopefully they"

Pros: "Meals and food was really good"
Cons: "It was hard for me to find the right building number if it was given online. Check in online system and a reminder on time would be great!"

Cons: "Xiamen air doesn't allow advance check-in and boarding passes. It makes it inconvenient in Korea coming back to Xiamen."
