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.

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.

It rained upon arrival to Shanghai, and the airline didn't have covered stairs to get people off of the plain and on to the bus. So their solution was to allow people to brave the rain if they felt like it. This led to half the plane getting off and the other half being held up by a few passengers in the middle of the plane who were afraid of getting a little wet. The crew would have just stayed there for hours waiting for the rain to stop, had passengers behind me not gotten angry and started yelling.

The crew was fine. Polite.

I'm 185 cm and couldn't sit straight in my chair. I get that it's a budget airline, but the 3 hour flight felt like 13 hours. Way too small for the price. Would not book again for anything over 1 hour. They also seen to be quite slow, as the flight was delayed 30 minutes without apparent reason, explanation, or even notification.

Nice crew No frills Relatively efficient boarding Cheap!

The incessant in-flight promotion thing was insufferable, would maybe be a deal breaker in the future... I actually asked them to stop 10 minutes in to it and they stopped it! It's the longest I've ever spent in a baggage line. I think their strict baggage policy probably leads to EVERYONE checking bags, which makes the whole process really arduous. No food, no entertainment.

one check-in crew (female) at gate was not very nice. My mom is disabled & in her personal wheelchair. The other check-in crew members told us (5 total) to go together to board the plane then this female staff told us we can only have one family member go in with my mom (to take care of the wheelchair then assist her on the plane) next time we board the plane. Their messages are inconsistent & her attitude was uncalled for, especially when she let other disabled passengers on with their more than one family members & the other Asiana staff members told us to go in at the same time.

Atrocious legroom & my legs are NOT long; like being in a stress position entire haul. BRUTAL. Flown many airlines to SEA, this was so bad it shocked me. The food (every 'meal' was poor, gross all-around but the "bacon & eggs" ....the egg didn't taste like real egg, bacon left raw. Inedible. The one exception was the chicken breast, that was actually a good standard... but they never have enough for everyone, and the rest of the meal was inedible. Almost no snacks offered, variety of drinks non-existent.

Air China indeed needs to have some western style food. seat is fair to poor condition; too narrow for me even for a economy class (mind you that business class is not much better). and maybe they should learn about something called "entertainment terminal". you stare at a public, plasma TV for 3 hours without change of programs. thanks for the ancient device. that does remind me what flights could be 20+ years ago.

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.

The crew was fine. Polite.

I'm 185 cm and couldn't sit straight in my chair. I get that it's a budget airline, but the 3 hour flight felt like 13 hours. Way too small for the price. Would not book again for anything over 1 hour. They also seen to be quite slow, as the flight was delayed 30 minutes without apparent reason, explanation, or even notification.

It rained upon arrival to Shanghai, and the airline didn't have covered stairs to get people off of the plain and on to the bus. So their solution was to allow people to brave the rain if they felt like it. This led to half the plane getting off and the other half being held up by a few passengers in the middle of the plane who were afraid of getting a little wet. The crew would have just stayed there for hours waiting for the rain to stop, had passengers behind me not gotten angry and started yelling.

Nice crew No frills Relatively efficient boarding Cheap!

The incessant in-flight promotion thing was insufferable, would maybe be a deal breaker in the future... I actually asked them to stop 10 minutes in to it and they stopped it! It's the longest I've ever spent in a baggage line. I think their strict baggage policy probably leads to EVERYONE checking bags, which makes the whole process really arduous. No food, no entertainment.

Flight attendants friendly and helpful.

My luggage was not put on my flight and I had to wait a day. Also the person next to me had a dog that died on the flight.

The flight attendants are attentive and know how to anticipate your needs. I used to travel from New York to Korea then the Philippines, and I choose to fly Korean Air. In my opinion, their service crew improved a lot Including their food.

Everything, the crew was outstanding. I haven't flew with all airlines but Koren Air was so good that I don't want to fly with any other airline, all ways Koren Air from here on out.

The second meal wasn't the greatest but I think it was me not the food.

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.
