I guess the name is to appeal to Chinese fascination with good luck. For westerners it makes you think you will lucky if you reach the desired destination. I choose this airline to get to Bangkok from Jinan, Shandong mostly during the day and to land at Bangkok international (BKK) rather than Don Mueng (DMK) To do that it was...

It was simple budget airlines with cheaper fare, there is nothing of entertainment on board, except sleeping. Also the seat were so narrow, the board was not cleaned before the flight.

Good Budget airline direct from KL - Lijiang only run 3 times a week currently, at alternate day, Mineral water & cake provided on KL - Lijiang and Rice & Mineral water included in the return flight. Leg room as budgeted. No In-flight entertainment, but is better then any other budget airline that i took before. Worth for money.

We flew Nanjing to Kunming then Kunming to Bangkok. The attraction was an overnight lay over of 18 hours in Kunming which gave us an opportunity to see a little of Kunming. Flights were cheap. Both flights late in departing, as expected! No frills onboard - no entertainment, no food barring a bread roll sandwich on the international flight. Booking...

OK budget carrier. The flight departed and arrived on schedule, but used a remote gate which required taking a bus to the aircraft. This was a short flight; no food or entertainment. Ticket was cheap, so expect fees for checked luggage. Crew was friendly and operated the flight safely.

Took Lucky Air for the first time from Kunming to Xishuangbanna. Although the flight is very short, it was worth the money as the whole journey was very comfortable.

I was under the impression that domestic flights within China had a 20 kilo luggage allowance. Not so with Lucky Air it would seem. Presenting my 19.2 kilo suitcase at check-in, I was asked for 140 Yuan as my luggage was 'overweight'. I didn't get to learn what the allowance actually is - just that as I had purchased a...

Please also see my report on "Okay Air". This was the second oddly named airline we flew by, in China. And once again, I was slightly put out. After all, flying is a serious business, and flippancy in any form seems out of place. But, once again, I need not have bothered. Fantastic flight. Very smooth and very soft touch-down....

“With a 3-3 layout, best to get an aisle seat to be able to "breathe" a bit during flight.”
