Pros: "Crew was very nice and I was happy to get emergency exit row window seat to make the the long flight more comfortable."
Cons: "The food could have definitely been better too many shrimp and fish options even in the morning for breakfast. I was happy there has been a pasta served for dinner otherwise I wouldn’t have eaten the entire flight! Shrimp for breakfast isn’t an option for American folk and the movie selection"

Cons: "Ok no problems for the price"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

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: "This leg was continuation of flight that began in Xiamen. Same plane and crew. 787 Dreamliner layout is efficient, generous legroom and recline is better than American carriers. Crew works as team, fast and courteous. Very helpful and professional, Water offered frequently, trash pick up kept cabin neat, bathrooms always clean. Passenger announcements are clear and crisp is English and Chinese."
Cons: "Really, no complaints. More entertainment choices would be appreciated however is not my priority."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing. I was sent to two long layovers in China and was told they were too long for them to take me without a visa for China. I was not told I needed one for any layover. I had to purchase a ticket on another site to get home or be stranded in Manila. Kayak doesn't have a customer service number to fix this."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airplane was loud not with crying babies but passengers yelling over one another. Food was mediocre, and plane had no entertainment consoles."

Pros: "New and very clean airplane. Appears to be an inch or two more room between the seats on the 787 to and from China. Good boarding procedure."
Cons: "The actual flights were ok. The experience at the airports was the reason for the below average rating. They are not set up to handle transit passengers. The signage in English is poor or nonexistant. The overall level of English for the airport staff is very poor. One goes upstsirs/downstairs nunerous times. Because the second portion of WF858 is domestic flight, the passenger needs to exit the terminal and re-enter as an international passenger. Numerous security and passport lines. I found the movie selection to be poor with few non-violent movies available. Will not fly this route again."

Pros: "Clean plane. Left on time. Better than average legroom."
Cons: "Movie selection was virtually all violent related. Nothing the airline can do about the numerous Security checks passing through this Airport."

Pros: "No problem with staff"
Cons: "Food is okay"

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."

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: "Nil"
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: "I like the price but best of all the service and the attention given to us by all staff members."
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "entertainment choices were good"

Pros: "food is great"
Cons: "check in time is too long (about 1 hour)"

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."

Pros: "Nice new plane, efficient crew, lots of food ... if a bit bland. Airline provided a free hotel in Ciamen for the overnight."
Cons: "Terrible paper shuffle in Shenzhen getting a require temporary visa, because the leg from Shenzhen to Xiamen was domestic. 2 hours or paper shuffle during which they took away our passports, with no guidance in English about what the heck was happening"

Cons: "直飞"

Pros: "The food was surprisingly good. I would have expected some of it from a restaurant, not an airline. The in-seat entertainment was functional and had a lot of things to watch and games to play."
Cons: "Nothing really. We have to keep in mind that an airline can only do so much to help us get through flights that are many hours long. This Xiamen flight was about as good as I can imagine a long international flight could be."

Pros: "Crew, comfort, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding."

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: "Hostess"

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."

Cons: "The staff was rude and the flight was delayed twice."

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."

Cons: "Was just a bit warm"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable. Not much leg room."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I was not able to get on my flight because I didn't have a visa after I called the airline over a week before my flight to ask about it and they told me I didn't need one. They told me I would get a temporary 72 visa upon arrival in Fuzhou but when I went to check in this was not the case. Now they won't give me any money back for that flight or the one I had to buy to get home. It was their fault I was not on the flight and they won't own up to it. I will never fly with them and I will do my best to let others know that they shouldn't either"

Pros: "For as complicates as the process is, they make it very easy for you! There are representatives at every turn to make sure you get through customs and on to your next flight. I also got lucky with all 4 flights I had. I had my own row on one and never had someone next to me in the middle seat. Pretty nice for such long flights! I also kept quite entertained playing Texas Hold 'em on the entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was so-so Most flight attendants spoke English well, but not all - there was some confusion about wine vs. water."

Pros: "The price was lower than other comparable routes and airlines."
Cons: "The service was just ok. The plane didn't seem very clean and it smelled like mold. The seats were not comfortable and there was little leg room."

Pros: "Crew was excellent! They were kind and respectful as well as very professional."
