Flew Economy Class
booked a flight from LAX to SGN, laying over in HKG. When I boarded from LAX to HKG, the agent checked my US passport and visa and didn’t say anything. I got to HKG and tried to board from HKG to SGN, the gate agent refused to let me board, claiming that I didn’t have enough blank page for immigration in Vietnam. I have traveled to Vietnam more than 10 times.
I stayed that night in HK, came to the US Embassy first thing in the morning, got an emergency passport, with the sticker saying it’s a replacement for my old passport number.
I called HK Airlines, paid them the rebooking, got a ticket for the flight to SGN, before the flight, HK Airlines refused boarding to me again, even with the new ticket and the new passport, claiming the visa doesn’t match the passport number, even with the sticker. They asked me to get an emergency visa, which cost me another $250.
If there was a real problem, they should have stopped me from boarding at LAX, instead of trapping and stranding me and giving me all kind of hard time in HKG

Excellent Service on board. Food was great. The seats are pretty nice for regional flights, flat bed, although not fully reclined.
Flight attendant greeted guests with their last name and also introduced themselves in an appropriate manner. Drinks were served throughout.
However, the customer service hotline was a disaster. They got their phones connected to Guangzhou where people do not speak human languages!!! They never understand what I was talking about. Other than this, the airline was great. Smooth rides with great service at very affordable prices. Definitely will take HX again in the future.
If they can be more generous and park their planes at the terminal without the troubles for taking a bus to the terminal, it will be much better.
I have to say, I never finish airplane food but on this one special time, I finished ALL from entree to dessert. Excellent!
Sorry but to say, Cathay Pacific, your rival is doing MUCH MUCH more better than you do.

This is the worst airline. They weigh carry-ons (but do not tell you upfront) then check the carry-on as checked baggage if it is over and then charge you outrageous fees. Horrible and will never use again.
EDITORS COMMENT: Every airline does this but just not on every flight so you could go many flights before it happens to you.

flew HKG to PDG. price was right.one flight one time, one delayed, causing me to miss the last airport bus and had to taxi. IFE was ok. Food was absolute disgrace – absolutely inedible dimsum, cold dumpling with stuffimg that looks like mystery meat. Tastes unfresh. Worst airport food Ive seen, same as when I flew with this airline to Okinawa last year too. On that flight, seems the pilot was tipping his joysticj left to right with little wind on landing. Plane was wobbly and cabin suddenly silent, petrified. What a feelimg of relief when landed.
