Hainan Airlines customer review

(Canada)

Beijing-Xi'an. We boarded on the tarmac then sat on the plane on the ground for 90 minutes due to air traffic congestion. Flight crew very friendly polite bowed during the announcements before and at the end of the trip. It is quite the treat to be served a meal on a domestic Chinese flight - a long dead practice here in North America! The breakfast meal was somewhat strange though : a vegetable porridge andsandwich. It was a nice flight the plane was a fairly new Boeing 737-800. It was my 1st time flying a domestic Chinese airline but an interesting experience at that.

Beijing to Xian. First time flying on this airline and I was really impressed. Clean well- maintained planes excellent inflight staff who were very attentive. Everyone in our tour group (made up of Americans and Canadians) commented on the excellence of service and food compared to the US airlines. Not even close this Chinese airline was way above most airlines I have travelled. The cabin crew stood and bowed to the passengers as the inflight announcement just before landing thanked all us for choosing to fly with them. I would definitely recommend this airline both within China and internationally as they have started flying to other countries.

(United States)

This was the best China/US flight experience I've had out of the many times I've traveled. The airplane was new economy seats relatively spacious for economy food was good the service was excellent. Also the inflight entertainment was awesome since every seat had a screen with dozens of titles to choose from from Chinese TV programs to big name movies. There were games available. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly. Also stewardesses came around with water tea and coffee at regular intervals. In the back they had beverages biscuits and sandwiches for between-meal munchies. It was an excellent value and I would recommend them to anyone.

Bejing to Hangzhou flight was full but staff very prompt and efficient. Boarding was quick and plane departed and arrived on time. The cabin crew introduced themselves as soon as the plane levelled out and even bowed during the introduction. Very nice touch. Aircraft was very clean and new 737-800. The overhead tv`s had good entertainment. Food was not to my liking but nobody else in my group complained - so it must be me. The only complaint is that they continue to serve drinks and food when the plane is experiencing turbulence? How is it deemed unsafe to use the WC but its deemed safe to serve hot coffee? Other than that no complaints. Would certainly recommend and will try and fly them again over other domestic airlines in China. They certainly are the only 4star airline I have flown on in China.

Beijing-Brussels return economy class. Flight out from Beijing was pretty busy at about 70% capacity. was given a seat in exit row - quite useful because you get the extra legroom but seats are awful as the video monitor is placed with the tray on both your left and right on the aisle seats with the middle two seats having only an armrest between the two. So if you are stuck in an aisle seat it is a nightmare. Luckily I got the two middle seats after some people decided to try their luck on another row. Food out from PEK was pretty rough two services. Return was at capacity in Economy food really good for Economy. Was stuck in middle of the 2-4-2 configuration on row 19 and not comfortable only able to get up 3 times during the whole flight. Fluids a bit better with tea/water offered during flight. Service good considering flight capacity attendants did a very good job. Very good inflight entertainment given usual standards from Chinese airlines with a couple of films of really high quality. Full VOD with some 30 films on offer screens mediocre but usable.

Guangzhou-Beijing was 1 year old B737-800. Everything was perfect from take off to landing. All stewardesses during flight were near you bringing water giving breakfast etc. Even if a person fell asleep sticker was sticked to your chair and when you woke up stewardess brought breakfast immediately. The second flight was Beijing to Moscow with new A330-200. The same situation - very nice service interesting onboard entertaining system polite english-russian speaking stewards.

Seattle-Beijing-Seattle. New airplanes great business class seats that lie flat. In Seattle they had a ground host who was there just to ensure everything was perfect. The inflight service was friendly and efficient. The only two negatives were a limited number of english language movies and limited in between meal food options. There were more movies on the return flight. Using Beijing terminal number 2 was a big plus as there are much fewer international passengers there resulting in no lines at immigration.

BRU-PEK Business Class. 6 hour delay in Brussels but flight was just perfect. Nicest flight attendants ever. New aircraft very personal service great food entertainment very good. Missed our connecting flight to Seoul but Hainan staff waited for us at the gate in Beijing and helped us book another flight. I would recommend this airline to everyone!

BRU-PEK-BRU. New A330 good and friendly service. Vegetarian meals correct and good. Every seat with personal TV screen. Toilets were cleaned regularly and seat pitch was about 32 inch. Only minus was that some seats couldn't be adjusted. Price/value was my best China trip in 16 years. Also convenient arrival time in PEK and BRU (early in morning).

Beijing-Guangzhou B737-800 in economy. Despite the 30 minute delay HNA did well to inform us and right afterward came the departure. Excellent service by flight attendants as they followed requests efficiently. Recommended.
