How are Xiamen Air and transit at Fuzhou?

Thu Sep 05, 2019 3:28 pm

Hi

How is Xiamen Air?
I have found cheap tickets CDG-FOC-SHA and I was wondering if it was a good idea.

Thanks

Haven’t done that particular transit (though plan to one day) so can’t comment there, but heard plenty of good reports about Xiamen in Economy.
If you don’t speak Chinese, it can be dIfficult to figure out where everything is at Chinese airports, but it all works out - English signage in secondary airports is now usually decent, but unsure on Fuzhou.

+ Download “Scan and Translate” mobile application for any foreign language challenges.

+ Xiamen Air Economy Class passengers traveling between Los Angeles - Seoul & v.v., for example; offers excellent value. My reply is based upon the feedback from (4) Economy Class Passengers (personal friends/colleagues) whom experienced this particular itinerary; complimentary two-pieces checked baggage, seamless transfer at Fuzhou, easy three-hour layover, complimentary meals, overall friendly service onboard (additionally based upon overall TripAdvisor feedback), and additional feedback from (1) LAX Ground Staff Agent working at Xiamen Air; former colleague of mine.

+ I am inclined to believe that Xiamen Air is a good idea; Xiamen Air is a member of SkyTeam, so you have traveler options in case of IRROPS.

+ Be flexible and book your visit to allow a 48/72-hour travel delay at both directions.

+ Be mindful of all SkyTeam flights operating between Paris and Shanghai on your flying days as alternatives. Let’s say you are confirmed on Xiamen Air from CDG to PVG; maybe note the departure time of SkyTeam member China Eastern (MU) on departure from CDG to PVG. ARRIVE at CDG expecting the worst. If CHINA EASTERN is scheduled earlier than XIAMEN AIR; just show up for the CHINA EASTERN flight; for example.
