We were never impressed by any budget airline including the well known Air Asia which only budget on services and name only, until we took a return flight direct from Penang Kunming, The plane is clean and spacious, friendly flight attendances, free 17kg check in luggage, free mineral water, blanket and pillow. You don't have to board the plane under...

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...

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.

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