I had about 30 minutes to change planes in Beijing cause of the flight delay (still had to switch terminals, check in and go through the border). I was met by an airline representative near the plane with a special bus and accompanied through all the bureaucracy very quickly. Excellent airline staff.

the flight was delayed for 1.5 hours and no staff in Sanya domestic terminal could speak English

I did NOT like having to wait almost two hours to board, and the constant "We expect to have our computer system up in 'a few minutes' " was really annoying.

The most attentive and caring staff, the snacks set up at the back of the plane, clean, comfortable planes, amazing food. Would always choose over US carriers

The in-flight entertainment set up is lacking. On a 13 hour flight on which your cellphone is banned even in flight mode that’s a big deal

1. Friendly crew and attention 2. Affordable direct flight from LAX to XMN 3. Good timing

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

Complimentary wifi and excellent crew service

The econ seat is too low, when front seater tilted the seat backward, the screen is right in front of my face. Entertainment video screen doesn’t adjust; in other words, it cannot be adjust in angle, causing neck pain over time. Meals are average, definitely different from the quality compared to regional or domestic equivalent. Very sad, considering that Xiamen Air has a good reputation inside China. The restroom is also poorly stocked — no toilet roll constantly

Passengers were kept well-informed by staff on flight status. Boarding process was efficient. Gate agents and crew were professional and friendly. Appreciated the in-flight entertainment.

Seating was cramped and claustrophobic. I'm only 5 feet tall and my legs were stiff after a 90 minute flight. "Snacks" were kind of pathetic - tiny bag of pretzels. The worst part was the crowded gate area at Boston. It made me feel like a cattle holding pen. Since we're told to get there two hours early, it would be nice to have more than a tiny little snack bar with overpriced pre-made sandwiches and salads that have been sitting out for who knows how long. Crappy lukewarm coffee. Starbucks is right outside security, but of course we can't bring liquids through.

The return flight HK-Vancouver was on the slightly smaller and older Airbus 330 which had no chargers, no in-flight entertainment screen. We received iPad movie screens which were ok. Coach seats were too close compared to those on the LA-HK Airbus big boys (Airbus 350 9 abreast). Bonus negative was my seat was broken and wouldn't recline and there was a metal box underneath the seat in front of me so leg room was restrictive and I'm 6 feet tall. Shoulda sprung for Business Class. As for food, first meal was rice, kimchee, and a tiny bit of pork and veggies which was ok. Snack was pizza bread, really hard to eat/runny and served with no napkin. Breakfast was runny scrambled eggs, beans, and a cooked cherry tomato and single stalk of broccoli. Staff was polite. Worse yet was the Sunday morning line at Vancouver customs: at least 2500-3000 people from several flights and 4 (YOU READ THAT RIGHT: FOUR) customs agents! Took 2 hours and change to get through. Coming to the US through this airport I had to leave security, ticket for Portland leg, recheck my bag, go through security AGAIN, and GO THROUGH CUSTOMS TO THE US. DO NOT TAKE THIS FLIGHT THROUGH VANCOUVER TO TRAVEL BACK TO THE STATES! Worst international travel experience of my life, bar none.

The Food was great! Asiana Airlines Economy Seats have more leg room than most airlines. Service was Excellent.

We had just purchased coffee and the boarding agent told us that their policy was that we were not permitted to take hot coffee onto the aircraft. My guess is it had to do with safety. I've never been told this on any of the hundreds of flight i've been on traveling the world. It must be a South Korea thing.

They lost all of our luggages(five pieces) and never attempted to locate them at LAX. Which were transferred from United airlines. It took eight contacts and finally reaching out to LAX office in 36 hours later, they located the luggages in 45 minutes. asiana from Inchon office kept on telling me that it is in LA office’s hand and yet they weren’t willing to call for LA office’s assistance. They were simply relying on the process which has been broken. Then upon the delivery, the driver informed us the severe damage in my tumi bag.

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.

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.
