Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Good news from others."
Cons: "Charging outlets Staff could be friendlier"
Cons: "Korean Air was wonderful. BUT KAYAK made my reservation through KIWI.COM which is absolutely horrible. My reservation was ONLY for Dallas to Incheon. They booked me a ticket all the way to Singapore without ever asking my permission or informing me. As a result, I was unable to use the ticket, and had to purchase a new one at the airport ticket counter. I called them several times to attempt to fix the issue, but they were utterly unhelpful. I have requested a refund, but am not hopeful based on their past performance. KAYAK should cut all ties with KIWI if it wants to remain reputable."

Pros: "Great service and a very friendly crew."
Cons: "The food was ok, average and nothing special."
Cons: "Great value ,excellent and friendly service."
Pros: "Great service, plenty of leg room, exceptional staff. Toilets refreshed often. Will def fly again."
Cons: "More detailed online infor for kids food. Australian fried rice varies greatly from korean!!! Potato crisp packets of chips would be a good snack option for kids instead of prawn crackers / brownies. Kids like plain stuff!"
Pros: "We liked the boarding in Atlanta and in Seoul with the people boarding by the numbers of their rows - boarded the back rows, then the middle then the front. Worked so much better than everyone rushing to get on! Flight attendants were very helpful with everything and always kind. Loved being able to sit in the exit row seats!!"
Cons: "Food was okay - we fly Korean Air whenever we travel to SE Asia and it seems the food is the same no matter what flight we are on. We like the pizza snack better than the bun with meat inside they served us on this trip."
Pros: "Boarded on time; everything efficiently done; pleasant staff. Breakfast was not great - too sweet overall. Usually korean does well with food."
Pros: "Great legroom. Food better than last Korean Air flight a few years ago."
Cons: "Changed to smaller aircraft, last row in the aeroplane."
Pros: "I received a meal for a two leg flight of overall only 4.5 hours. The seating was nice and the food was very tasty. I love the layout of the Incheon Airport as well as the transfer experience."
Cons: "Good that have a night in the hotel to stretch and a good night sleep and a proper meal, and are all included within the ticket."
Pros: "My husband, my baby(14 months) and I took the flight from Hanoi to New York which was transferred in Korea. The flight from Hanoi to Korea got delayed so we have to fly with Asian Anna instead. The checking took so long and confusing. We barely made the flight from Hanoi to Korea and ran from different terminals to catch the flight from Korea to New York. We paid extra to select seat to sit to gether but then we found out it was just a joke to get money from Justfly since Korean Air said they only arranged seat at check in which we couldn’t check in as early as we wished due to the delay. And from Korea to New York, they lost our 4 luggages. How horrible could that be ? We are thinking about suing justly."
Pros: "Very professional crew good service"
Cons: "Nothing really pilot couldn't understand him but does it really matter unless is an emergency"
Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."
Pros: "I like the Korean Bibimpap on the plane, taste was good."
Cons: "Old style business seating, quite uncomfortable, not a full recline, very uncomfortable when fully reclined compared to other business planes, TV was small, not good quality, selection of movies was only ok, not great, service was ok, not great, they cater more to Korean customers then other guests, if you are on the upper deck de-planning is difficult and awkward as you have to go through the economy section and staff doesn't keep them seated, so no extra bonus for business in de-planing. washroom items not replaced (toothbrush / mouthwash), overall very average"
Pros: "Korean Air staff was great. I fly Korean when flight prices are reasonable. Stsff helped me as I need assistance as a disabled passenger. Plan to fly again to BKK and back next summer and will fly KA again if price is competitive."
Cons: "Flight to BKK was on 747s my favorite plane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and handled the delay as best as they could. The food was good. Cabin temperature was good."
Cons: "It was raining and the airport was making a lot of announcements about flights that were delayed/canceled but our flight to Korea wasnt mentioned. About an hr before boarding time they changed the gate. The plane we were taking was late arriving. Boarding time was pushed back 30 min. Everyone got on pretty quickly but then we sat in the plane, on the tarmac for over 2 hours. Idk if it was an issue with the plane, or the airport or what. I was sleeping so I didn't bother to ask but my mom was listening. She couldn't hear anything on the PA system. It was too fuzzy."
Pros: "I love that you get meals and snacks. A lot of airlines really skimp on this, and you are left miserable, hungry, and thirsty. Korean Air will bring you drinks outside the service times set. Free additional bottles of water as well. The service is excellent, the meals are good, and I absolutely love that you get slippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, and even free headphones should you forget yours. Top service! Good meal portions! I also like that you have 3-4 different meal or snack options each service. CLEAN BATHROOMS!!!! Also, the flight attendants are very polite and courteous. You never feel like they just don't care. They even help with families traveling with small children. A+ guys!"
Cons: "I really have nothing negative to say about this airline. They are my favorite, and I fly with them every time I am able, 7 times international to date."
Pros: "I enjoy flying Korean Air. I get great deals with great service and accommodation."
Cons: "It was a late direct flight from Bali to Seoul. The flight was for a 0120 departure, and about 7 hours long. For the flight being a very late departure and both locations being around the same timezone (1 hour difference) I feel as if the lights were left on for too long, over an hour after departure, and then turned on too early, 2 hours prior to landing. Too improve comfort I would suggest to begin service upon takeoff and turning the lights off immediately after, and turning them on an hour before landing to conduct service. Better yet, if possible, conduct service with the lights off and individuals that require additional lighting may use their individual light. I believe, and witnessed in my area, a majority of personnel that just wanted to sleep during these flight hours."
Pros: "Cool; collected; patient; helpful; calm; respectful; overall, people doing their best for their customers."
Pros: "the company you gave too me were no good i did like then i hope you please do not give that company too no one i did take the fly on Korea air korea air is good but not the company you gave too me too by my ticket from"
Pros: "From the April 12 Sydney to Seoul flight, the landing at Seoul was so smooth, so professionally done I hardly knew we had touched ground. That Captain has much to teach all pilots wanting a higher standard to their skills and the recognition of these standards. That caption is worth his/her weight in gold, giving Koran Air a gold standard. To compare, the landing at Osaka April 12, late at night, was done by an apprentice who has much to learn from your gold star captain.."
Cons: "The same Sydney to Seoul flight, crossed the Qld Great Barrier Reef around 11am April 12. Having a window seat, so much detail of the Reef was visible which greatly surprised me. Beautiful colours galore. Having my face glued to the window at this time, I was unaware of cabin happenings. A male steward tapped me on the shoulder and said "Close your window blind". The beautiful scene outside my window was a first and being 76 old, likely not to happen again for me. Naturally, I ask the male steward "Why", He repeated 4 more times, "Close your window blind". Each time my reply was the same, "Why". On his last request, his voice raised, so in turn, my reply was raised. Sadly, he walked away silently, hands waving in disgust. Only then did I realise the cabin was completely black, no light seen. If at 11am, traditionally, this is a custom, a service to passengers on that particular flight, the male steward didn't say. He clearly expected to be obeyed and didn't expect a challenge. But also felt I didn't deserve a reason for his, what clearly was a demand. Would he have treated a male passenger differently. I flew economy because that is what my budget demands. Flying is not common for me but certainly a thrill that demands a window seat. I give much praise to all other staff, especially the captain landing that very craft at Seoul. At my age, years of experience allows me to be aware and notice. A beautifully presented mature female stewardess in economy, served me. When I requested a beer with the main meal, she said I will give you my favourite. I knew this was double talk for having only one brand beer left, that was a weak American beer. I watched this lovely lady many times being distracted by other staff with questions and 2 other passengers near me, asking for changes. She never blew it. And she passed me in the Sydney terminal, end of the day for her and believe it or not, she remembered me. She was not in such a hurry to get to her destination, that she gave time by turning her body, giving me a wide smile with eyes saying, Yes, I served you. You see, she's never off the job of customer service. I learned much, flying with Korean Air. Many thanks, Sally"
Pros: "- Great Service by inflight crew. - Very good Indian veg meal options i.e. Hindu Veg Meal and Asian Veg Meal. I would suggest the non veg folks to try these next time."
Pros: "Service was immaculate, friendly staff, smooth flight, comfortable plane. Wonderful experience, would recommend it to everyone."
Pros: "I liked their positive & happy attitudes as well as their work ethic."
Cons: "Perhaps there could have been a larger & wider selection of movies. I would have liked to have had a hard copy menu so that I could make a more informed choice with my meals."
Pros: "Collectively, my new wife and I have travelled through dozens of different airlines, including 8-10 international flights, and our journey with Korean Air was the best flight experience we have ever had. The staff was so attentive, the selection of Korean music, and the access to movies, and the comfort of even Economy class was fantastic. Despite the long hours spent on board, Korean Air made it as comfortable as possible. We especially loved the hot towels, and the stickers that allowed the flight attendants to note if we wanted to be woken for meals, or left to sleep!"
Cons: "We have no complaints. Everything was just lovely."
Pros: "The air hostess is very kind and helpful when she noticed that I was not well and she has offered me a honey lemon drink even I didn't request."
Pros: "screen contents very good"
Cons: "seat is smaller than other flight"
Pros: "You can go on a free city tour if you are transiting at Incheon airport. Also fantastic public area for transiting customer with free showers, upholstered day bed, charge stations. Paid massages , Paid airport hotels or lounges with buffet."
Cons: "There was nothing we didn't like about our flight to Seoul"
Pros: "Friendly service and food pretty good. Great price for value."
Cons: "Seating was changed even though i prebooked."
Pros: "Great value plus layover hotel bonus"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "The boarding went smoothly considering the number of people on board. It took a while to take off and to land, but that's because the airports are busy. The crew was incredibly well dressed in professional attire. The accommodations were amazing - the flight came with the standard pillow/blanket combo, disposable slippers, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, a snack, drinks, and the attendants dimmed the lights whenever they weren't serving - all free. The entertainment was amazing - I watched four Hollywood movies that I had been wanting to watch, and that was one section of the movies. There were also TV series and music available, both in English and Korean."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the crew's attention, especially from the center seat while speaking English. One of the meals gave me terrible gas, which was uncomfortable for me and my seat mates."
Pros: "Indian music in Audio section and Bollywood movies"
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat on line and ended up in a window seat. With the seats in front of my row reclined all the way back, I could not get out of my seat to use the restroom. Having just transferred from Korean Airlines and taken other asian airlines on my trip, it's a hard comparison to a domestic airline, although Hawaiian is among one of the better domestics. On my food tray, there was a bowl of miso soup, that the attendant was trying to hand me, while there was turbulence. The bowl of miso was smiling all over the tray, and on my napkin, and since I was on the inside seat, almost spilled all over me. On a previous Korean airline fight, also with turbulence, the attendant had taken the bowl off the tray, and covered it with a saran, and then handed it to me to make sure it wouldn't spill all over me. There's a bit of difference there."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, eager to help. Flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Amazing service"
Pros: "Very clean. Crew was very good. Food was for the most part fine."
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty lacking. No paid WiFi service on the airplane for a modern country’s air fleet... only texting."
Cons: "Siting at exit row gave more legroom thus more comfortable and more sleep. Disadvantage is that apurar must be stowed in bin overhead which is not within reach. It’s a bit of inconvenient and feeling insecure for important papers and $ inside."
Pros: "I had 3 seats to myself, and I was able to curl up and get a good 2 hours sleep without being disturbed. Thank you ANA. Crew was lovely and friendly."
Cons: "Well they could have given me a free upgrade but I can live with a row to myself, kidding. When the ticket counter opens the agents stand in front of the podiums and bow and say a greeting (I think it was in Japanese). They need to get their timing better. So not much."
Pros: "ANA is nothing but amazing. Great customer service and pleasant ambiance."
Pros: "Service Quality"
Cons: "Seat does not recline"
Pros: "I like the service. I like the way they checked my back stuff and put back very neat. I’m very happy with your company,"
Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"
Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. Seems there is no way to adjust temperature /individual air flow on a 777-300."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow near the window."
Cons: "ANA changed my selected aisle seat to middle one without explanation. It never happens when I fly with United."
Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."
Cons: "I did think about changing my departure time but the ticketing agency didn’t relly quickly enough so I was stuck. Luckily it worked out."
Pros: "Everything was just perfect"
Pros: "Flight attendants were incredible!"
Pros: "Crew amazing and food very good."
Cons: "Crew woke us up 2 hours before landing, would ha e been great to sleep longer."
Pros: "very clean over a 9 hr flight , great seat and flight attendant"
Cons: "The seats in economy are ok and not a good comfortable seat.. and needs improvement on food menu choices. But no problem boarding, the attendants are courteous and nice.."
Pros: "Prepackaged sandwiches were so so. Crew were friendly and helpful. Leg room was pretty good. Bathroom had a lot of amenities."
Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."
Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."
Pros: "There was a air hostess I wish I knew her name I was seated at the very back she really took care of me she thought I was sick she kept asking me am I ok Flyer NH 175 LAX / Nairta because I did not eat at all the food was good don't get me wrong all Airlines should have people like her"

Cons: "Nothing, really."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."

Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Pros: "2 inches more legroom in economy than other airlines on that route."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight attendants were courteous and thoughtful."

Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Pros: "The middle seats were seperated, so I had my own arm rests"
Cons: "The crew was very polite, the best that I have ever seen . I noticed this polite behavior in all Japanese service people in Japan too. Very gracious, It is in their culture. The only problem for me in such a long trip it was that the chairs couldn't move back for a more relaxed position, but overall it was very good ."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "Young, pretty, and charming stewardesses. :-)"
Pros: "Flight attendant Lee-san is amazing and kind. I was feeling really stressed and having a panic attack. She brought me tea and comforted me. I am so thankful for her kindness."

Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."
Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."
Pros: "ANA flight rarely have big problem, I just let myself relaxed."
Cons: "I don't know, but I felt some cabin crew were a bit cold to me this time. I usually fly with my partner who has Gold status. When I'm with him crew come to greet us and very nice to us. I csn say it's unnaturally nice to us. This time I was on my own anf I felt I wasn't very welcomed. Ot could be my imagination though!"
Pros: "Flight crew were amazing! Very hospitable and attentive."
Cons: "WiFi was not very good. Connection was very slow and they charge $20 per 100 MB used (instead of one flat fee)."
Pros: "Crew was very good and professional, yes the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I think the Xiamen knows how to run an airline."
Cons: "They wouldn’t let us in the plane due to passport expiring within 6 months of travel. That should have been something you should have put out there during the booking process. We’re now not going on vacation and are having a hard time getting anything back from a trip we couldn’t take"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It was extremely loud the entire trip and after traveling for more than 24 hours beforehand, it was an extremely uncomfortable trip."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "My tv monitor didn’t work and my wife’s chair wouldn’t stay reclined"
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: "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: "crew is ok though not much speaking english"
Cons: "no other comment"
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"
Pros: "Great airplane (787 Dreamliner), comfortable seats, lots of meals, no charge for beer & wine"
Cons: "IMO, the flight attendants should understand better english. It was clear they didn't understand much. I had to claim checked bags and recheck every flight segment. No abilty to reserve seats unless it was more than 72 hours before departing!"
Cons: "Too many security points"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "To many transfers"
Pros: "Nice flight; very comfortable"
Cons: "Short flight; so no in-flight entertainment (no problem though)"
Cons: "the transit in Xiamen after my flight from Hong Kong it was 7 hours I have stay in xi amen. The promotion and/or advertisement saying that I have eight hotel for me to rest in Xiamen or a city tour. After I arrived there.all of those was saying nothing provided today. all I can have is leading me to a lough where just seats, tables for passenger to sit there. provided tea, water, Chinese made coke with natural temperature no ice . just sit there for 7 hours to wait for my connection flight to LAX"
Cons: "Flight got delayed in Xiamen, miss the connecting flight to chongqing."
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: "I liked playing tetris and pacman with a controller that was like that of a console. My flight had a lot of empty seats, and I noticed they staggered the seating so that there was nobody in front of me or behind me. Flight crew was genuinely nice and helpful even though we didn't speak the same language. The little cup holder was actually pretty cool. There even seemed to be ample leg room compared to other Chinese international flights I've been on. I've flown previously with china southern and China eastern, so that is my basis for comparison."
Cons: "They didn't give me boarding passes for both flights (had a long layover in china). Other airlines printed both at the start of trip. This added quite a bit of confusion for me, seemingly unnecessarily. Also, I'm a bit disappointed in their free hotel room deal for long layovers. When I had a long layover previously with either china southern or china easter (can't remember which one), I got my own free hotel room, a free meal, and a free ride to and from the hotel. That was a real perk for my 12 hour layover. The deal with xiaman is you get a free hotel room, but you have to share it with a stranger of the same gender, and you have to pay for taxi to and from the hotel. Although you do supposedly get a free meal, I chose not to take them up on the hotel offer. Instead I took them up on their transfers lounge. This is a dark, quiet room full of dingy, dirty padded chairs and people sprawled out and snoring. I would have stayed more than 15 minutes if there were more phone charging plugs, but instead I went and ate mcdonalds and found a plug in at the kfc. Aside from all that, I would suggest getting some better Hollywood movies to choose from, as xiamen's competition has them beat there as well, in my opinion."
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: "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: "The flight is easy to check gave us 23kgs check in luggage 46kgs if u have intl flight. Free hotel with breakfast. Not bad at all."
Cons: "They require us to get the luggage and check in again tomorrow."
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."
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: "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: "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: "Nothing. never boarded. Took the train instead."
Cons: "1 hour connection. I missed my flight because the flight out of LAX got delayed."
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: "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: "Crew from lax to xiamen were good they took care of my meal from xiamen to bkk . They offered me their food which was pretty generous of them"
Cons: "I called 24 hrs prior to my flight to ask for Vegetarian meal but that was not available... There was so much problem with food . And the toilets were very very dirty :("
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: "crew provide excellent and attentive service. food is good"
Cons: "food could be better"
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: "The food was good and staff was friendly"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly, professional and excellent!"
Cons: "The 10 hour layover :("
Cons: "Xiamen airlines are horrible I will never fly them again. Phillipines airline was excellent"
Pros: "all of the Xiamen staff were really great."
Cons: "Nothing that I disliked."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice a professional Seats comfortable Meal size was quite large for economy Domestic"
Cons: "Check In Agent said my ticket was incorrect? Had to go to about three different desks with very limited English. Had a baggage overage that I was happy to pay for but would have had to go to another desk to pay. Would have missed my flight. Hand carried 8 pieces of dry cleaning through the Airport. Not customer saavy or friendly."
Pros: "787 Dreamliner's hardscape was new and clean. IFE was decent but had some anomalies (can't take off of pause unless you shut off screen, select same movie and resume). Food was fairly decent and plentiful. Think a cheap chinese diner & you've got it."
Cons: "Crew was efficient but can't speak Englsh worth a nickel! While I have a limited ability in Mandarin (think 5yo vocab), the announcements in Engrish was almost as bad as some of the translations in many Chinese products. I pity the people who can't understand ANY Chinese: they could not possibly get most of the announcements. They should really get at least 1 FA that can speak and understand English. The signage in Xiamen (I was transiting from LAX to TPE) was amazingly poor and confusing. You basically stumble from 1 floor to another based on the signage. The airport was actually very large for what appears to be a medium size city."
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: "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: "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: "GOOD Service, Great Priceing!!!"
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"
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: "Boarded early."
Cons: "Smaller plane so not much room to move around. No individual entertainment system."
