Pros: Everything in regards to Hainan.

Cons: I didnt like that Kayak.com said I had a return seat picked out. THEN went online to see I had no return seat even though one printed on e ticket. Had to call Hainan directly to fix it. Also didnt like that since I bought through Kayak.com I couldn't do 24 hour prior flight online check in. Only allowed to check in at the airport 3 hours prior to flight.

PEK
Excellent 8.0

Pros: I thought the service, efficiency and kindness of the staff was top notch. They made the flight really enjoyable. Hainan does a lot to make sure you feel like you are getting a high quality experience even while flying economy.

Cons: I notice a few things around my seat that were kind of broken, which was surprising knowing that this was a new Dreamliner ... I thought certain things would not be as worn yet. Though I am sure it gets a tons of abuse! I also thought the food was sub-par and we always had a really hard time hearing any announcements because they were not clear, loud and English was challenging to decipher.

OK 5.0

Pros: The company seems to be good based on their tv advertisement.

Cons: Seems like the crew doesn’t pay attention to people who does not speak mandarin or don't want to pay attention to a different race, gender or color of people. They kept at minimum contact as possible even neglect to collect the snack rabish until called by their fellow Chinese who asked for that to be removed.

Pros: Crew is amazing with a smile always. It was a new aircraft with nice screens and a good variety of movie selections. Service was excellent as well as the food.

Cons: I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka.

Pros: Dreamliner appears to have more room, the seats recline to a greater angle, and it is not cold like a lot of other planes. Cabin crew were friendly, helpful and attentive. The break up of flight legs between Australia and U.K. into 3 legs of 7 or 8 hrs is a great alternative to the 1x9hr & 1x12hr.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

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 hires 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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
