Was on a business trip and had to go from Shanghai to Xiamen. Took the easy route via metro 2 from downtown to Hongqiao airport. checkin, security, boarding all as usual. Departure was delayed by 25 minutes, however, we still made it on time to Xiamen. Good experience, reasonable prices - solid performance.

I had never heard of this airline when I booked my flight from Los Angeles to Bangkok, then I read the reviews after booking. I was completely stressed when I read all of the negative reviews and wanted to switch airlines. I have to say I don't understand all of the negative reviews because my experience was the complete opposite....

Osaka airport was closed for many days due to typhoon damage. The airline cancelled flights without communicating any alternatives. Some representatives lied to us and told us that they could not fly us to another airport in Japan and that our tickets would be refunded instead. Presumably we would then be stranded in China. After spending five hours talking to...

The service I received was truly magnificent. 787-9 truly a great aircraft. The crew were remarkable even if their English ability was sometimes very poor.

Here HGH airport let me down..no wheelchair but one of the stewardess went and found a wheel chair,...

Seattle flies directly to Shenzhen. You don't need to transfer from Hong Kong as before. The Xiamen Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner is flying. Compared with the old Delta and Lufthansa, the experience of taking the flight is more comfortable, and the flight attendant is more pleasing to the eye!

Safety instructions were impossible to understand as were any passenger notifications. I sat next to the engine and could not understand anything that was said.. The menu was strictly for Chinese, not Americans. Who eats squid ink sandwich? Not Americans. Something as simple as scrambled eggs were not as expected.. the bread Wes good and that was all I could...

was victimized by the supertyphoon on Sep 16, and stranded in Jinjiang. The airport Xiamen Airlines staff Li Ling Ling is so helpful that she went out of her way to produce solutions in sending me out of the typhoon zone just in time for my several meetings that follow. Refund of some of my three tickets also went smoothly...

I did 2 international and 3 domestic flights in China over the past 2 weeks. The staff were very friendly and helpful with questions. The service on the planes were excellent. They kept the restrooms clean, and on a 14 hour flight that is a plus. The food was good.

Flying on this airline 2nd time. Overall found this a good experience inspite of the delayed departure. Very neat and clean inside and efficient and curteous Flight attendants. Enjoyed a nice in flight meal of Chicken and Rice which was somewhat unexpected as i anticipated pork or beef. Was welcome. Ground handling and baggage clearance was pretty quick.

We used Xiamen Airlines for our return trip to Changsha. The planes were spotless and the cabin crew very friendly and helpful. Planes were on time and landed on time too. Will use again.
