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!!

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.

Limited selection of English language movies but hey it was a China airline so no bit surprise there.

Excellent crew, clear announcements in both English and Chinese, decent food and entertainment.

Hectic boarding process that required taking a bus and everyone pushing and shoving to board the plane in no particular order. Stayed on the tarmac for 2 hours before taking off and did not recieve frequent updates. When the seat in front of you is fully reclined you have essentially zero space.

The crew, with a single exception of a male attendant, was unhelpful and even apparently unhappy with being in the flight. The plane did not have soap in the toilets. The entertainment equipment did not work properly.

Delay - The flight got delayed by an hour, no one knows why? the screen at the boarding area show on time despite online flight stats say dealyed Boarding - We were in economy and no one cares to smile, assistance is too far to think Food - Only two meals, one when we were asleep around 1am - 2am LA Time. After 12 hours into the trip breakfast was served, announcement was omelette, ham & cheese or French toast, but when they came to the seat, they had only omelette. Crew - One of the worst crew, they chat for hours together but no help to economy customer, no smile, no coffee, no snacks in long haul flight, wish had them on camera but didn't want to invade privacy of others, they offer rotten fruits if one asks for snack

Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit.

This flight was on the 777-300 plane leased from EVA. Boarding proved to be a bit of a slow grind due to the inordinate number of families with children on this particular 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.
