Pros: Crew was efficient and friendly. Boarding was quick and painless. They served lunch that was fairly good standard food. For a specialty Chinese airline the English was quite good and entertainment choices were varied enough with English (foreign) movies and shows. Subtitles were available as well. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable.

Cons: Entertainment was a little lacking due to it being a Chinese specialty flight but there were enough shows and movies in English it wasn't a huge issue. The shows/movies were maybe a little of the not popular sort but, again, they were entertaining.

PEK
CTU
Okay 4.4

Cons: Prior to taking off, (male) flight attendant was rude when demanding me to turn off electronic. Girl to my right rear kept her moving playing on her computer during entire takeoff. Flight air conditioning was not cool, let alone cold, so I was hot the entire flight. When landing, I was directed to return my seat to upright position, while man in front of me did not have to, girl next to him did not have to, and several others throughout the flight did not have to return their seats to upright position. It really seemed like the flight crew played favorites or (more specifically) discriminated.

ZRH

Mediocre 3.6

Cons: No AC in aircraft during taxi boarding. We were taxi for 30 min. Extremely warm. Entertainment systems did not work. Flight attendants did not appear friendly or polite.

CKG
Okay 4.0

Cons: We were delayed in three hours and had to wait in this FREEZING airport. Additionally, our suitcases were not sent directly to our final destination. And of course the crew's English is poor. So we were very stressed wether we will make the connection or not.

LAX
CTU
Excellent 8.0

Cons: We had to get off the plane in Jinan to go through customs and get back on rather than going straight to Chengdu. In Chengdu we had to claim our checked bags and check in again before boarding to Taipei.

Pros: Nothing

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

Excellent 10.0

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.

LAX
XMN
Excellent 10.0

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: 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.
