Pros: "Staff excellent Flight smooth landing a breeze"
Pros: "Crew was grest and helpful"

Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Was seated near some noisy distractions i.e. crying baby."
Pros: "Crew super nice, appreciated all the free food that was provided during flight and hot towel."
Cons: "Comfort of seats"
Pros: "Food choices was very limited to beef and fish. We had a connecting flight for international and both leg has the same food choices."
Pros: "Very hard working, responsive and caring crew. Kept the washrooms clean throughout the flight. Pretty good space between rows considering economy class. Lots of little touches like slippers and toothbrush."
Pros: "Everything. Seat...crew...food...all of it."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. All was great."
Cons: "Movie selection was a tad bit small"
Pros: "Overall good, comfortable, nice and food and entertainment was very good quality."
Cons: "I didn't realized we were on a code share flight from Seoul to Hanoi until we got to check in counter and they couldn't issue boarding pass even though it was a through check in for till Hanoi. In our booking itinerary it was printed as Korean air with a small print that said operated by jinair. It wasn't so bad but the hassle of going to another terminal to board and being in a smaller aircraft after a long flight wasn't the best."
Pros: "Great service. Seamless Transfer at Incheon aurprot. Courteous and helpful staff"
Pros: "Excellent service and probably the most efficient boarding process I’ve ever been a part of. Food service went by without a hitch, and the stewardesses knew English very well so we felt comfortable and welcomed. I also really liked being able to get terminal/travel information from the infotainment system. Being that I’ve never been to ICN or NRT before, having access to terminal maps and basic instructions on how to find connecting flights and baggage claim areas was probably one of the most helpful features of the flight!"
Cons: "I am 5’11” and found my seat somewhat uncomfortable. It didn’t detract from being able to sleep at all, but it did seem like the seats on this airline might be at its most comfortable with shorter passengers."
Pros: "Economy seating leg room is better than US domestic airlines."
Cons: "Little leg room on shorter flights/smaller aircrafts."
Pros: "Efficiency, hospitality, professionalism, cleanliness, ..."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, great meal, and excellent flight attendant service."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good leg room, pillow and blanket are provided and food was pretty good too."
Pros: "Great customer service. Smooth flight. Friendly and helpful stewardesses despite the language barrier ( I don't speak Korean)."
Cons: "Really no complaints. It was just a super long flight and it was too uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "I know you are not the only airline that does this, but the seats are cramped. I am not a big guy. I can't imagine what a heavier or tall person goes through in those economy seats."
Pros: "Seats reasonably comfortable, service decent"
Cons: "3 of my 4 flight legs were considerably delayed, my luggage not making the connection for one of them. A friend also flying Korean also had delays making me think they are unreliable and extremely disorganized. I don't know what they'll do when they're really busy for the Olympics. Entertainment OK but ANA has much more."
Pros: "The blankets are nice and soft. Crew is really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight to Chicago was delayed 10 hours out of Korea. The airport ran out of food. The natives we're restless. What was worse was the lack of communication from the airline. If they just would have told us what was going on, we all would have been more assured."
Cons: "I missed my connection because of fog. (Obviously a problem they could not fix, so I’m not upset about that.) I asked to change flights in Fukuoka so I wouldn’t miss it but I was told then I wouldn’t be able to take my connecting flight in Incheon???? Even though it was Korean Air??? Fukuoka lacked any information when our flight might come or if it would possibly be cancelled. Got to Incheon near midnight, I then waited for three and half hours in a line to rebook for the next day, and when they helped me they gave me a ticket. They said they couldn’t give me any hotel accommodations because of all the missed flights, but didn’t offer some other compensation. I didn’t get a voucher which I saw other people in line get. When I asked to upgrade to business class( I was willing to pay the extra money) I was told it was too expensive for me. After my trip I will never fly Korean Air again."
Pros: "I dont have somebody sitting beside me"
Cons: "Boarding and Food"
Cons: "Difficulty making connections at Inchon airport due to gate locations and lack of people moving capability."

Cons: "There wasn’t anything I didn’t like."
Pros: "Service, friendliness"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We boarded the airplane and took us 2.5 hrs to take off...the kept saying oh 15min longer, then 20min...ect...for the entire time...waiting for “documents” then refueling the plane which they couldve been doing before we boarded and while we were waiting for so, called documents..."
Pros: "Boarding orderly"
Cons: "Cold food"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Clean, great service, good food."
Pros: "Flight crews are friendly."
Cons: "A lot of walking to reach your connecting flight. My mom was on the wheelchair and they have to push her instead of riding on the cart they uses for the passengers needing assistance."
Pros: "Loved the slippers toothbrush toothpaste Liked the in flight meal Entertainment was great Roomy and comfortable. My seat wouldn't recline so they let me sit in the back seats reserved for the crew so I wold be able to recline and sleep in the long flight to Korea."
Pros: "Korean air is wonderful. They maintain high standards of professionalism and friendly service that are sadly lost by American airlines. This sets them in high favor above the rest. Thank you!"

Cons: "No VR goggles"
Pros: "Everything was good and the price was proper."

Cons: "They didn't have my vegetarian meal that I ordered so was pretty hungry."
Pros: "Big airbus 380 is amazing fly non-stop over 15 hours across the ocean. Really nice airplane. Air attendants are all looking good and friendly. Ice cream was really good."
Cons: "No chicken meals left for me a bit disappointing. I've never had such a problem. Maybe next time have to make an order when booking ticket. Staffs fixed me a fish plate instead. My husband and I couldn't sleep tight at all. No room to straight our legs, especially his long legs."
Cons: "Special meal options really bad. All vegetarian meal preferences including lacto-ovo-vegetarian are treated same as vegan, which is dumb."
Cons: "Food was not that good. poor film selections."
Pros: "comfortable seats...above average food choices"
Cons: "limited selections of the movies they offered....a very long walk going to the next gate to catch my next flight."
Pros: "Boarding process was pretty smooth. Food was OK and the on-flight entertainment was good. I liked having the camera on the plane where you could see over where we were flying as well as the frontal camera. Also liked the map views."
Cons: "I had heard so many great comments about this airline and overall airlines traveling abroad. Yes the plane looked nice and the flight attendants looked flawless, but I had no luck when it came to the flight attendant that was in charge of my isle. She was not friendly, and gave me a judgmental look when I asked for a refill for red wine. Tickets are very expensive and I'm sure most folks using this airline have made lots of efforts and sacrifice to be able to pay for their trip. Such was my case, as I was on vacation with my sister and had been planning for this trip for a very long time. Seats were very uncomfortable and it was warm inside the plane the whole time. in the end we got to Incheon safely and on time, and I guess that's what matters..."
Pros: "I really appreciated getting a meal on the plane despite the short two hour flight. I've always liked flying Korean Air due to their cleanliness, presentable flight attendants and good customer service."
Cons: "The only thing I seemed to have a problem with was the volume and clearness that came out of my headphones. Although the headphones were provided by the airlines, the volume came out a little unclear and kind of scratchy. Other than that, everything was great."
Pros: "The planes were very clean and in good working order. The crew was excellent. We had a very short connection but were met as we got off our first flight in Seoul and given great instructions about how to quickly get to our connection through security while our flight to SFO was being held for 15 minutes. The food was very good, choice of movies and TV excellent. Our bags made it to SFO despite the short connection. All in all I couldn't ask for a better way to make a 20 hr trip to the other side of the world."
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff, great service"
Cons: "The seats could be bigger"
Pros: "Professional staff great movie selection"
Pros: "Flight to Seattle was great. Food and staff and flight were nice."
Cons: "Most everything. The flight back to Seoul was awful. Toilets weren't cleaned, trash overflowed, ran out of water, staff not pleasant - total opposite from outbound. Usually KA is goodness, but blew it this time."
Pros: "It was a codeshare flown by China Air, and was a typical China Air flight. Quite good but nothing spectacular."
Pros: "Staff were all good and professional"
Cons: "I want to watch a movie but both airplanes from Da Nang to Incheon and Incheon to Narita were older models so nothing to watch. Didnt matter though actually because i was sick and slept the whole time"
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."
Cons: "The flight was very full, but overall; good service and on-time performance!!"
Pros: "I liked everything. The crew was nice, there was leg room and if people wanted they could watch a movie. There was a nice small meal even though it was only an hour flight."
Cons: "Well, I'm not exactly sure. I understand why there were many different languages for the announcements. English, Korean and Japanese. Even though that stops what you're doing on the screen, it can't really be helped, unless they know which language each person prefers in each seat and programs the message to only play in that language for each individual seat."
Pros: "The crews are very polite. The food is good. Service is good."
Cons: "The boarding gate doesn’t have elevator or scalator and it’s hard to go up/ down the stairs (NAIA). Aircraft seat looks old. Overall the flight is good."

Cons: "The 2 1/2 hour departure delay (due to a mechanical issue) resulted in my missing my connecting flight to Bangkok. Entertainment choices (movie selection) could use improvement."
Pros: "The flight got attendants were polite."
Cons: "The food was not so good as expected, to my surprise and disappointment. The seats were even narrower than my next connecting 2hr-flight from Incheon to Osaka... Also the flight attendants spoke only in Korean when walking down the aisles offering coffee, tea, etc. When I fly on other Asian airlines (Singaporean, Japan Airlines, All Nippon) everything is bilingual so it is easy to understand what is being offered or asked."
Pros: "I love how they give importance to parents traveling with little kids."
Cons: "They ran out of food choices. I have been flying with Asiana for the longest time and this has happened thrice."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class"
Cons: "No alcohol"
Pros: "The food is so good."
Cons: "The check in counter is not fully organized. I encounter so much delay in checking in my luggage. The new employee must be properly assisted by the old personnel to avoid long hours of waiting and standing in the counter of the passengers who arrived early so they can check in their baggage ahead of time. I availed of your web check in but was waiting for so long in the check in counter."
Pros: "Good on-demand entertainment system, safe flight"
Cons: "Service is reliable but crew was not as friendly as they used to be. The meals were terrible. Economy seats on the airbus 380 are very crammed. No wifi either!!"

Cons: "Needs more cushion on the seats."
Pros: "Crew very friendly. Check in very fast"
Cons: "Food was disappointing. Lounge in Manila was dirty"
Pros: "The airline and staff provided blankets and warm food."

Pros: "Not much. Plane was almost on time."
Cons: "Disgusting food, old plane with terrible seatback screens as well as movie selection."
Pros: "Of all the flights that I’ve taken in Asia this one has been the most comfortable. I had tons of leg room and I like how the seats reclined."
Cons: "I don’t like how you can purchase an additional bag online you can only do it at the counter. And the prices for an extra bag is a little pricy."
Cons: "Delayed flights. We sat for two hours on the plane because it has technical issues. Then we waited an hour or so for the connecting flight."
Cons: "few new movies in the list"
Cons: "Flight was frigid."
Pros: "was really nice that after i asked they got me a nice seat on emergency exit road which really made my trip much more comfortable."

Pros: "The crew are the best and attention is also excellent"
Cons: "The seating is hard and is hard on your back, legs and neck. Movie selection is very little and not very good. The bathrooms should be periodically cleaned down and sanitized with a light solution to be and feel clean."
Pros: "I have flown to china and back on this airline twice now. It is a very good airline. Flights were on time, and service was great. I would recommend it to everyone. My daughter just flew from china to here on it and she had a great trip."
Cons: "It was all great, including the price."
Pros: "The flight crew was attentive, the special meal (you should always order a special meal!) was served ahead of the regular meal service and was delicious, and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There's nothing to not like. Great airline!"
Cons: "Due to problems loading luggage, and not really knowing what to do, my flight was delayed over three hours, made me miss my layover by fifteen minutes and get stuck in Korea, they provided me with another ticket, but since they didn't have another direct flight, they put me on another layover. My next flight with Asiana to the US from Korea encountered another problem and I was further delayed another two hours, with another two hour layover in LA. The cabin crew was friendly, but not very useful. They provided food, but no help. This is the worst Star Alliance airline I have ever flown. I will not be a returning customer."
Pros: "Food o utstanding for economy....a as good as air France Movies selection excellent"
Pros: "The food selection is good and the service is tiptop. Highly recommend"
Pros: "Food was great. Movie selection was not very extensive, but had a lot of great films - watched 3! Very nice staff."

Cons: "The flight from Korea to San Francisco was so late more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Everything seemed mediocre. Ok plane, comfort was ok, nothing great but nothing terrible."
Cons: "I can't understand why the flight attendants didn't come around collecting trash with a trash bag. Almost all the Asian airlines I've flown on, the flight attendants were always real nice and helpful, but That wasn't the case with Asiana airlines this time around. On our flight from LAX to Incheon, and from Incheon to Cebu, the flight attendants all seemed miserable and unhappy, not smiling at all. I've flown Asiana few times before and had always been happy, but this time, it was definitely different, all because of the seemingly unhappy flight attendants. On our 12 hour flight from LAX to Incheon, the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper and in 12 hours, they didn't once come around with trash bag collecting trash. Sure, they collected the plastic cups drinks were put in, but that was it. How do you not come around collecting trash AFTER A 12 HOUR FLIGHT? Also, just the little thought of maybe providing a hot towel after a 12 hour flight would have been nice. In the future, if given almost the same price point for a ticket, I would choose another airline over Asiana Air."
Pros: "Overall, most liked - food"
Cons: "This flight was delayed because they sold their empty seats to other airlines and allowed for those people to make it. However, those who had connecting flights weren't able to make it and had to stay overnight in Korea. The next flight arrived 14 hours after the original scheduled flight"
Pros: "I love the food and flight services."
Cons: "I didn't like crews in Ohare. They do random size luggage carry. They say my luggage is not right size. Hello that not my fault according Samonite is right. Go tell the manufacture they do know how to measure according to Asiana guide line. She know right sizes and she doesn't want accept answer of his coworker. I do not want check in due is it my personal belongs are inside. Plus they disarray how to forum a line to board in."
Pros: "The service and food were good."
Cons: "Long line to check in, very inefficient compared to the LAX check in."
Pros: "We like the comfortable seats of the Airbus 380, the crew services. The food is ok; the entertainment is good"
Cons: "The boarding should be categorize in row number to avoid long line and delay."
Pros: "Nice choice of recent movies. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was somewhat delayed."
Pros: "Service in the flight was excellent. The seats are spacious and plenty of keg room. Staff very attentive."
Cons: "Difficulty at the check-in counter. The attendant was not familiar with processing US citizens flying from London to other countries. Given I live abroad. Required a supervisor to clarify the situation as well as additional military credentials. Additiinally difficulty with carry on luggage weight. Supervisor stepped in and addressed the issue properly thus saving me $149 for a carry on bag the attendant wanted to change me"
Pros: "For the first time flying was impressed with everything . Crew was friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Crews are very attentive and great with their service!s. Way better than many big Asia airlines!"

Pros: "The crew was nice & helpful. Seats were roomy. Washroom was kept clean."
Cons: "A larger selection of movies and t.v. shows would have been better."
Pros: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "Helpful friendly staff serving on a clean, modern plane, with meal service on even two hour (international) flight. Great value."
Cons: "Most flight attendants have only limited English ability, but it’s enough for basic communication. Very friendly and helpful in Chinese though!"
Pros: "Timing, Price, Service, Food,"
Pros: "Polite cabin crew."
Cons: "Lost my check-in luggage - still not returned after 4 days. Broke my expensive checked-in suitcase on the first leg of the trip. (No reimbursement for loss or damage.) Leads you through online check-in but denies allowing you to complete it. Could not reserve any seats (for 4 international flights) ahead of airport check-in. Forced to give up my assigned seat to accommodate someone else. No customer service contact phone number (in English) that works. Poorly designed website - difficult to locate and utilize options."
Pros: "Plane left late from Manila and was asked to run to catch the connecting flight to LAX. Monitor did not work. Flight attendant/s were rude whenever their asking to stow away foot rest. Never say please. When I got to LAX, I needed to wait for the very last luggage for me to find out that my luggage was left in Guangzhou. No apologies whatsoever and was given a direction to file a report. Very sad experience."
Cons: "Focus on customer service. More training with staff since they are dealing with different nationalities."
Pros: "Overall, the service is good."
Cons: "There is still room for improvement. Flight attendants need to be better trained in dealing with passengers. Spend the time to "listen" thoroughly instead of saying "OK I know" & then fuffill the passengers request. Sometimes, little details matter, even they did the job right. Try to do better!"
Pros: "Easy ride"
Pros: "I like food"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good."
Pros: "Great flight, left on time, flight attendants very friendly and always smiling. Good goodand we arrived early."

Cons: "Not able to use ur phone in airplane mode!!"

Pros: "Food was okay. Great price for such a long distance."
Cons: "Vegetarian options would be nice."
Cons: "the flight left 45 minutes late, food was bad"
Cons: "The flight from Korea to Beijing was delayed several times, causing me to miss my onward connections in Beijing and Urumqi. They claimed this was due to weather concerns, but funny that--it was partly cloudy at worst, and every other carrier seemed to be departing on time. Because this isn't a daily route, they reschedule me for two days later at no cost (the one thing that went well here), and the exact same thing--multiple delays, missed connections, and all as other carriers seemed to be running on schedule. At this point, I just deemed the trip not worth it. They have refunded my fare, but I would have preferred my two weeks holiday in Georgia by far."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for more than five hours..."
Pros: "I thought that the trip was fast and everyone was efficient.I"
Cons: "I expected that I would have the priviledge to check in 2 bags but was informed that I had to pay 400+rmb extra last minute to include my 2nd bag. The zipper on my suitcase had been opened by someone and now will not properly close after I retrieved my bag when I arrived in Incheon International airport in South Korea. I hope that I will not have problems with my suitcase when I complete the last 2 parts of my trip back to the U.S. from Korea"
Cons: "They missed on friendliness. The welcome is rehearsed and not sincere. The stewardess do their job without smiling. Need more training."
Pros: "If you have a carry on bag only, then this airline is fine. If you have to check your bag, I would suggest not even considering it. I have flown this airline for the last 8 years in business travel, with no issues. For some reason in the last two years, the level of efficiency in baggage transporting has tanked. In the last 3 trips, my-or my colleague's bags have been lost FIVE TIMES. One time it took FOUR days (on a 6 day trip) to get our luggage, this time we received our luggage 2 hours before departing for the airport to head home. Unfortunately this is one of the few airlines that actually flies the route we need to take. I'll revise my entire trip to avoid taking this airline in the future."
Cons: "can't checkin online because can't prereserve seats, without which the checkin doesn't complete."
Pros: "The Cabin was clean, seats were new, usb charging port was a nice touch."
Cons: "The food was really poor."
Pros: "nice onboard entertainment system."
Cons: "lost my luggage ;-("

Cons: "Warm and cramped cabin."
Pros: "Some crew member was nice and that's the only nice thing I can say"
Cons: "Some crew member ignored my request or forgot and in eco plus seating there wasn't any crew member there to accept service request light. Food wasn't good at all. Luckily we ate before boarding."

Pros: "The service was very good. The flight was quite late, but the friendliness and service of the staff made up for it."
Pros: "The food was edible and the crew was nice. There was an empty seat between me and the lady with baby by the aisle."

Cons: "poor service.i had a fever and they did not provide me with a simple medication like asprin"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Online check in is not possible when not booking directly with airline. Airline does not have kiosks for expedited airport check-in when not documenting luggage. Seats are the most uncomfortable I have flown in, which is specially important on 13h+ flights. Personal electronic devices were not allowed anytime during the flight. Food was below air carrier average."
Pros: "I am trying to think of something positive to say but nothing is coming to mind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Staff was unorganized and had no clue what was going on. flight was delayed again and again but the staff at the gate neglected to inform the customers who were waiting for hours what wasn't going on. And to top it off, they couldn't speak English..."
Cons: "On Sep 14th, I paid on your websites with the confirmation of three airline tickets from Chengdu China to Los Angeles. All the information I provide for each passengers are correct. However, due to the fact that you missed up three of the passengers information, they couldn't check in yesterday. The whole fight to LA was missed. As a result, we had to pay very high price to buy new tickets for the next available fight in order to complete the trip. I'v made four phone calls with your agent, with all records made. 1) The 1st agent confirmed that the information I provided were all correct for each passengers. So she believed there was nothing wrong and did nothing to help. 2) The 2nd agent realized the information were mixed up. But it was too late to let them check in. 3) The 3rd agent confirmed that the issue were caused by your system. He said only the supervisor could deal with this matter. He gave me a number which is not valid. 4) Finally, the 4th agent said you would contact me. No response by now. Still waiting for the response. Very disappointed after all."
Cons: "My flight had a 16 hour layover in Dalian and it didn't say anywhere before hand that Dalian airport closes at night. I had to sleep outside of the airport."

Cons: "smooth trip! no hassles"
Pros: "The good care given by the flight crew"
Cons: "Not much - it was quite good"
Pros: "I liked that although I didn't request special meal via phone, some fight attendants tried to accommodate me. Others were not having me. I liked that I could look at detailed maps of the flight route. There were excellent movies to watch to kill the long frigging flight."
Cons: "The seat space was limited. Some fight attendants seemed off or in bad mood."
Cons: "I am frequent business traveller, I flew from KTM to CAN from China Southern. I tell you they have the worst service ever. I asked for a glass of wine in return they show me empty bottle and says we don't have it anymore. This is humuliation, I rated them -10 for Customer Service out of 10."
Cons: "We were delayed about half an hour taking off, which was not communicated clearly. This was already a late flight and i had had a 7 hour layover."
Pros: "Everything on flight was fine."
Cons: "My email specifically stated I was suppose to be on this flight but they put me on a different flight and did not explain why."
Pros: "Booked seats with my reservations months in advance. Come check-in time, they were invalid. Got seats in front of bathroom."
Pros: "They put us up in a hotel when our flight was cancelled."
Cons: "When my flight was delayed and then cancelled, no one came to the gate to explain what was happening. When a crew member finally arrived, he told us to follow but didn't tell us where we were going or what was going on. Crew members and airport staff kept motioning for us to move along like they wanted to get rid of us. They kept saying, "Go! Go!" But wouldn't tell us where. I felt lost and confused the entire time. TERRIBLE customer service. I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Shouldn’t have babies or small kids in the business class"
Pros: "There was a good amount of leg room for an economy seat"
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger movie selection"
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "I like the web that show me my travel schedules, I don’t need to look for email. But when I check in airport, they ask me flight confirmation number which I don’t know either that number doesn’t indicate. So I hope that you also include flight confirmation number too."
Cons: "Delayed / diverted - no communications whatsoever"
Pros: "Great airplane (787 Dreamliner), comfortable seats, lots of meals, free beer and wine. Great ticket price!"
Cons: "The cabin crew did not really understand english. When I asked something, it was clear that they didn't understand. I had to claim my checked bag and recheck it at every flight segment. No ability to select seats unless it was more than 72 hours before departure."
Pros: "The check in boarding pass is not that nice."
Cons: "The boarding pass people need to improve, especially to elderly people."
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!"
Cons: "Better movies , better vegan food"
Pros: "No real problems"
Cons: "Nothing significant"
Pros: "Nice flight; very comfortable"
Cons: "Short flight; so no in-flight entertainment (no problem though)"
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."
Cons: "The seats don't even recline, so I could not lie back to rest. The entertainment system was very bad, didn't provide earphones and could barely see the screen. I would not choose to fly this airline again."
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: "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: "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: "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: "crew was nice"
Cons: "food was dry"
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: "Plane was new and clean. Flight crew was very friendly. Liked the mood lighting during the flight. Good selection of films to watch during the long flight."
Cons: "The food was okay but they ran out of selection a couple of times so I had no choice what to eat. But that’s it nothing else I didn’t like. Really good airline."
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: "Clean plane. Left on time. A little more seat room than many other carriers."
Cons: "Poor selection of movies. Want more light comedy"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice and courteous!"
Cons: "Couldn't be helped, it was just a long flight!"
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: "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!"
Pros: "entertainment choices were good"
Pros: "Seat were comfortable , staff friendly"
Cons: "The long layover"
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: "All announcements in Chinese and English. They keep feeding you."
Cons: "Lots of checkpoints but hey. Why complain about them trying to keep us safe."
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: "I really liked the space in Business and the priority boardings in Asia. Worth every penny. Food was great. A lil slow on serving alcohol though. Very relaxing trip."
Cons: "Not much. Liked I mentioned, slow on serving the alcohol. You have to push to get a drink."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly, professional and excellent!"
Cons: "The 10 hour layover :("
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."
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: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "couldn't book through from Shenzhen yp Guilin. Had to check-in again at Fuzhou and go through security again."
Pros: "Excellent, friendly service on a terrific plane. More leg room than the average (American) airline for a long flight. Had to call Customer Service. They were as helpful as they could be."
Cons: "There was no computer check-in even for people with no bags to check. Long wait on line to check-in. Probably could use more staff at airport. TSA wait that night was also very long. Not Xiamen's fault of course."
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: "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."
Pros: "on time food"
Cons: "no movies"
Cons: "Gate is crowded and no escalator only steps. No clear area for business class and its a fiasco boarding"
Pros: "Great flight. I’m typically a Delta flier but China Eastern definitely impressed. I will fly with them again soon."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was great."
Cons: "Not Delayed My Luggage."
Pros: "The flight delayed over 2 hours and there is no faculties to help my transferring. No one took care of my hospitality"
Pros: "Overheard storage is good"
Cons: "Seat cushions could be more comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the plane was clean, the food was ok. The portions were great but the food selection was very ethnic and not neutral. The set was not y’all friendly. Couldn’t sleep all 14 hrs."
Cons: "Seat tailored to accommodate a taller customer. 6.2 Nanjing Airport was terrible (customs) more Shanghai connection."
Pros: "Seat was great"
Cons: "Food was horrible, can be better"
Pros: "I liked the snacks serviced"
Cons: "I’m very disappointed with China eastern airlines. Despite making the request during reservation, my mom who has bad knees did not get wheelchair. Staff was very rude and did not provide wheelchair and she had to walk a lot with pain."
Pros: "The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The food was mediocre"
Pros: "From the staff and everything was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment was very old movies and musics."
Cons: "Excellent service. Business class. 777. Very well worth the price."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Wait on the airplane after arrival."
Cons: "There was a long wait to transit or transfer but besides that everything was great"
Pros: "aweful airport staff, worst food. would have been better riding a cattle truck"
Pros: "Everything was smooth."
Cons: "Custom sucks in China, slow and not efficient."
Pros: "Food was pretty good albeit small portion. Staff were decent."
Cons: "Quality of ear bud is bad. Not allowed to use electronic device on the plane even in flight mode which is ridiculous because they allow laptops and ipads!!"
Pros: "Just do yourself a favor and sleep. Even though the flight is shorter they still give you a meal and a bottle of water which I found to be nice."
Cons: "Seats were definitely a lot more cramped and there was no sort of entertainment aside from the window or magazines (but then again, makes sense since the flight is a much shorter one)."
Cons: "the plane was downgraded from airbus 330 to boeing 737"
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 min. The attendant who spoke to me, spoke in clear English. The one giving the announcement, her pronunciation was not completely clear. For a routine speech like that, it should be well-rehearsed and clear."
Pros: "Our flight was just fine. The food was about what you'd expect on an airplane, the crew was friendly and helpful. I was surprised that we couldn't even turn our phones on during the flight, although this makes sense to me. Unfortunately, I had loaded up all my books on my phone and not my tablet. Overall, about what you'd expect and not deserving of the negative reviews I've seen."
Pros: "Price was cheap and I got to where I was going mostly on time. Food was fine. Most staff members are friendly."
Cons: "In addition to the issues I mentioned above, even though my flight back was practically empty, they would not let people move to exit rows without paying 1000 RMB extra, which was annoying."
Pros: "Nothing about it"
Cons: "Rude staff in spite of paying almost close to Cathay Pacific, journey date was forcefully changed just days before traveling with a layover time of 16hours instead of the original plan of 3 hours so was forced to stay overnight at a shitty hotel provided by China Eastern, Check in baggage not handled at Kunming by staff, airport hotel not inside airport, but 20mins away in some dirty part of Kunming, not even in the city. Taxi from airport to and from hotel had no space for checkin baggage and they had to be kept on our laps. No food provided at hotel. Very discomforting experience overall."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for half an hour, and then waited in the plane for another three hours before take off. I guess a few hours of delay is normal when you fly in China. The passengers waited seating in the plane for more than 3 hours not knowing the reason of the delay nor when will it take off. There were no choice of meal. The meal was very basic and was with too authentic flavor and material. Rice was undercooked and compressed in rectangular shape probably by food producing machine. No individual grains can be seen. There were no individual monitors or entertainment available, but understandable, considering that it is a two and a half hour flight."
Pros: "Service was nice, quick"
Cons: "Not very good meals"
Cons: "Was not allowed to board because we were military and denied boarding because we did not have passports"
Pros: "It was the best airplane food I have ever had, service was good"
Cons: "No phone policy is a huge con and will probably make me avoid China Eastern in my future, and this particular plane wasn't too comfy"
Cons: "Rude flight attendants that don't speak good English, food is horrible, they need better options, did not accommodate my peanut allergy"
Cons: "Nothing ... all went well"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants claimed the milk in the beverage area was his, that he paid for it, and the only option was the dry powdered kind. I just wanted some for my coffee. Oddly the milk was not branded, it was clearly provided by the airline for the passengers. Another flight attendant gave me some from a carton with the same appearance. I assume the other guy steals it and sells it in China when he gets home."
Pros: "there was room to sit"
Cons: "One of the crew started getting upset with me for needing water."
Pros: "Compared with airlines in the US, here you actually get food, even for a short flight"
Cons: "Because of flight delays a connecting flight left me behind, making this a 36-hour trip. Nothing can compensate for the agony that caused."
Cons: "Vegetarian options should be included in meals. I wish there were more movie options,l."
Pros: "The plane from LAX to Shanghai-Pudong was very nice and modern. It was a Boeing 777-300ER and was pretty comfortable in economy class with individual monitors behind each headrest. The entertainment on board was very good. The food was mediocre at best, but for the price point I have absolutely no regrets. The stewardess that was in our section was very cold but not unfriendly. We had a brief layover in Shanghai before heading to Seoul Incheon. The plane from Shanghai to Seoul was an older Airbus 330. It was pretty outdated and my armrest next to the window seat was actually half missing. Overall though, I was pleasantly surprised that they served a meal on the fight, and the flight attendants on this fight were much more friendlier than the previous international route. One recommendation is that China Eastern not post the production date on their bread rolls. There was a Korean passenger in front of me who thought the bread was expired and it caused a commotion on the plane. I was very impressed by how the attendants handled the situation. They were very friendly and even the head flight attendant came by to apologize although it was not needed."
Cons: "Cold flight attendants. The attendants did their jobs, but I felt like they were there to collect their paychecks not to provide world class service or be friendly. (LAX to Shanghai) Very spotty Wi-Fi in Shanghai (not the airlines fault). Food was not memorable. I was missing a large piece of my armrest from Shanghai to Seoul."
Pros: "No hand soap in any restroom.food is bad .after 20 min your meal then they server dinner roll ?"
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "We sat boarded, buckled and not moving for over an hour without any info on why we are not taking off - at the least the crew could have told us there was a delay or said we could move around or let us to go the bathrooms."
Pros: "The flight crew on this flight was extemely professional."
Cons: "Waiting over an hour to get a boarding pass. Pudong staff behaves like prison guards. Its so horrible that its comical."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Phones not allowed to be on in flight, even in airplane mode Battery packs not allowed to be on in flight, no charging"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and food was awful. I had rice and fish and had to literally put butter on the rice so that itll taste like something. Yuck! Second flight was delayed. Same two movies for the 4 flights all in chinese, the subtitles were too small and no english audio."
Pros: "The food was good, the flight was smooth"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and one (maybe new?) flight attendant kept slipping up."
Pros: "Staff was friendly good price"
Cons: "Quality was very minimal for such a long flight"
Pros: "I loved the airplane! Half the flight attendants were super nice while half was just emotionless."
Cons: "Food was absolutely disgusting and entertainment was okay. However, I don't understand why no electronic devices are allowed during flight. No cell phones and no laptops? Can someone please explain why?"
Pros: "The entertainment was good. Food from SFO to Shanghai was better than Shanghai to Toronto."
Cons: "On our flight from Shanghai to Toronto (September 27th, 2016 @ 12pm - flight MU207) was total madness. A lot of the passengers were out of control. I've never seen anything like it. The amount of people walking around were unbelievable. People were playing cards, doing jumping jacks and tai chi around the emergency exit. None of the flight attendants tried to control the crowd nor informed them that they shouldn't be doing that by the emergency door. We had to inform the flight attendants of what was going on while they were hanging it or doing whatever they were doing in their own area. If that wasn't stressful enough, the passenger behind me started punching my seat and shaking my headrest multiple times because he wasn't happy that I had my chair reclined. EVERYONE HAD THEIR CHAIR RECLINED. We called the flight attendant and she apologized for what the man had done instead of putting him in his place and him apologizing for what he did because not long after she left he did the same thing! I've never experienced such a horrible flight and I've been on over 20+ flights just this year. China Eastern really needs to train their flight attendants better and teach them how to manage passengers when they are out of control. I've never written any reviews before but this was just such a terrible experience that I needed to leave this review."
Cons: "The staff was extremely unhelpful. I had a connecting flight and they didn't help at all."
Pros: "There were clearly ATC delays at Pudong but it us not the habit of Chinese airlines to keep passengers updated. A frustrating hour on board."
Cons: "No info"
