Good 6.3

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.

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: Almost nothing, this was a terrible flight and experience! The movies were good, that's about it.

Cons: No online check-in, long waiting at in-person check-in. Rude, inattentive personnel; worst is that every passenger in transit need to go through customs in Xiamen which is terribly complicated. No word about this upon booking or on Xiamen airline's website. Customs in China isn't a nice experience either. Nobody was able to find the right way for check-in, it was a mess. I will never fly again Xiamen Airlines and I recommend to everyone to avoid this airline under any circumstances.

Cons: The flight was supposed to leave at 8:30pm. We were delayed until 11, then 11:50. At 11:50 we were still not boarding and an argument started about compensation. We were finally boarded at 12:30am. But on the plane we were not given information and continued to sit there for an hour and a half while the plane was further delayed. We finally left around 2:30am, six hours after we were supposed to leave. I missed my ride at Beijing and my first night at the hotel.

Pros: The flight attendants were really nice and the food was surprisingly good!

Cons: The time frame. My flight was supposed to leave at 11:50pm. We left at almost 2am. In which case made me late to a layover I had in China which made me miss my last flight to Japan. BUT, luckily, a woman that worked for the airline in China was able to put me on an air China flight to japan, which again in very grateful for!!!!

Cons: Some kind of squabble broke out and it seemed to take the flight attendants a while to settle the people down. The menu said that snacks were available but I never saw any offered. Attendants came around regularly with hot water but no refills for other drinks. My tray table was broken. my food tray slid into my lap because the table wasn't sitting horizontally. Could not check in online, cannot check for 2nd (connecting) flight when checking in for first flight in person in China. As a non Chinese citizen you cannot check in via the kiosk. It's a pain.

Pros: Food was okay, though they didn't get the variety of our vegetarian meals correct once again. Flight was timely.

Cons: Worst thing was changing our pre-reserved seats saying it was an improvement, then sticking me from an aisle to a middle seat. It's one thing to do it, but it's egregious to lie about it. Crew was cold and not so friendly. They were a little rude as well, but some passengers were also rude. They were efficient, however. Earphones didn't work properly. Movie selection was just okay. Layover too long without a supplied hotel (16 hours).

Good 6.6

Pros: Cost can't be beat, friendly service, reminded me of flights back in the 80's - 90's with no frills. A solid air service that most would find not up to par to their own personal standards. Travelers have been accustomed to getting things as standard over the decades of flying services offered in the past, so not getting them with this airline for free can be frustrating. However, for travelers that are very flexible and don't require much comforts, this airline provides exactly what you need..a cheap flight to your destination.

Cons: The scheduled times for departure aren't very flexible, the check-in counter on return flight was extremely long even 3 hours in advance of flight departure, plan accordingly. Passengers can be grumpy because they expect more from the airline, not an airline for most who expect comfort and freebies.

Cons: I paid extra to sit at the quiet zone only to be disturbed all night by a crying baby. The stewardess are also not friendly and used fierce tone to ask us to turn off our phones. We ordered food for it to be our breakfast before arrival but the food was served at 1am. When asked if I could eat it later since I am really tired and wanted to rest, the stewardess just hush me to eat it now since later light will be off. It would be better if the food is served as breakfast before arrival.

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.

Good 7.6

Pros: We were bussed to the far end of the tarmac to board which seems normal for this airline out of Nanjing. The step stairs would be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. Seats are comfortable enough and the inflight entertainment has several options for current movies, tv, audio or games. Mine worked on the flight home but not the outbound flight. Meals were plentiful but not to my liking, catered to the majority of the travellers which is reasonable. There were some vegetarian meals available to those that requested previously. They came around many times with beverage service and water as well. Language is a bit of a barrier but if you are patient you can figure it out. Very happy overall with the experience we had at the price we paid.

Cons: Food options were limited. Boarding was a long process by bus out to the tarmac.
