Really need to work on the food. The entertainment can't be on the iPad, there's not much space already. I was trying to get an isle seat or upgrade to premium, but I can't do that from my original flight from bkk to hkg. When I arrived from hkg they told me to go to the gate. There was an isle seat available on the flight but no one at any of the counters could help me change it. Seriously frustrating. Stick to Eva,Cathay,china Air lines in the future.

Great value, comfortable new aircraft, and good entertaining system.

The in-flight boardcasting voice was dull, not clear, and not proper toning in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English. Wifi was not working for my phone.

The aircraft Hong Kong Airlies uses on this route is a joke. The business class is worse than economy class on other flights. Everything is dated, there is not much left of seat upholstering after 20 years without any updates and the headrest sits at a hight where my shoulder is - with no chance of adjusting it. I left the 5 hour flight with backpain and the resolution to NEVER AGAIN fly with Hong Kong Airlines.

Extra leg room in emergency exit row They actually played a movie that was in English. Not the first time I have flown China Southern, but the first time I had air control above. This is something I feel makes flight a bit more comfortable.

Food is terrible. They ran out of wine during first beverage service. Exit row passengers are not permitted to keep items under seat. Flight was delayed at take off and perhaps in route because we were over an hour off of schedule. Aircraft always had a line for the bathroom, two is not enough for amount of people and duration of flight. I do not know if there was bathroom in front, it was sectioned off.

The crew members were extremely helpful and accommodating.

There was no hand soap in any of the bathrooms.That means no one on the plane, including the crew members, could wash their hands for the duration of the 14-hour flight. Disgusting! I sked one of the crew members to refill the soap, but it appears that they had none.

I liked all the service but I missed my flight yet I was only 50 minutes before and was forced to book another flight to catch up when all I had to do was be helped to make it on the first flight.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
