KLASSE! Xiamen Airlines Business Class 787-9 | YourTravel.TV

Hi, guys! Welcome to our new flight report from Xiamen! I’m going to fly business class back to Amsterdam with XiamenAir 787-9 Dreamliner today. It’ll be a 12 hours flight I’m quite curious about what XiamenAir has to offer. Shouldn’t be bad though, I assume. Let me show you after the intro! As you can see, there’s a huge red carpet for business class passengers here. We just went through the security check. It’s all going well and we’re having a special treatment. I’m not sure if it’s because we signed up with XiamenAir or it’s available to every business class passenger. No, it’s not. There were other business class passengers line up behind us at the check-in counter but they didn’t get this Personal Assistant service. And it goes on. We had a great time in the lounge. We’re going to pre-board the plane now. It’s very nice of XiamenAir to let us on 10 minutes in advance. This is great because the cabin will be empty now and we can give you a better display of it. We can see what it really looks like. Yes, XiamenAir’s 787-9 is a 2-class airplane. There’re 30 business class seats and much more economic class seats. I don’t know how many seats exactly with these two classes combined. Here you can see the 30 business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. It’s the Reverse Herringbone seating arrangement and each seat is individually controllable. It provides the greatest possible privacy which is very nice in my eyes. So I’m sitting on the Reverse Herringbone seat right now on a 787-9 of XiamenAir. It’s similar to the seats from Qatar Airways and KLM We’ve flown with the Dreamliner of KLM before. The seating arrangement is similar but it’s a little bit different. Still in a 1-2-1 configuration though. Click on the “i” button on the top right corner for the related videos. Yes, it’s a night flight, unfortunately. We departed from Xiamen at 00:10 and arrives in Amsterdam at 06:00. So it’s completely in the night time. I have to do this quickly then because the cabin will soon get dark. But I’m really looking forward to the services from XiamenAir. So XiamenAir is the name of this Chinese airlines. I’ve kept saying “XiamenAir” at the beginning and the name is on every piece of paper here but that’s not the right pronunciation. The right one should be “XiamenAir”. XiamenAir has three 787-9 Dreamliners and six 787-8 Dreamliners now. but they don’t offer too many flights to Europe currently. Most of their routes are still within Asia. So here’s the headphones I’ve already unpacked Take a look. XiamenAir Headphones Ok, it doesn’t look like a high quality one though. And I don’t think it’s noise canceling. I’ll test it later. However, the slippers looks great as far as I can tell. Wow, yes, with the hard sole. This is perfect if you need to use the lavatory Without slippers or Hausschuhe, as in German I wouldn’t like to use the lavatory, if not necessary because it’s usually not so clean on an airplane Just my opinions. And here is the menu on my left. – This is the first time I’ve seen it. – Wine recommendations for meals in here. – You can find wine recommendations here on this menu – Nope, on the menu. – Look at this one. and this wine for this. Yes, and that’s exactly what’s on the menu. I’ll show you later when it’s time to eat. It’s funny that in the announcement the flight attendants just said “XiamenAir”. I’ve had the pronunciation explained to me by multiple locals. Armrest up and armrest down. There’s a large compartment for storage. I got a compartment on my left as well with a mirror in it. There must be a force of resistance to keep the mirror from falling down. Great idea. Here in the front let me put the Champagne aside is another large compartment. You can find the USB portal, audio input/output here. A socket and a remote controller. Like always, when I want to show you something when I want to show you something the announcement gets in my way and it makes me unable to show you. We’re lucky again the rear rows are relatively empty while the front rows are completely full. This is a trick of mine. I always try to back fill that’s because passengers’ seats are assigned from the front to the back automatically so the front seats are always full. Cool trick, right? I love the Chinese hospitality which we’ve received during our trip in Xiamen. You’ll always be greeted and served in a friendly manner and it continues here on the XiamenAir plane. That’s great! I’d like to say “Cheers” on this very plane then. The official registration number of this Dreamliner is B-7836. Only went into service 7 months ago it’s such a new plane. This is what it look like in here no signs of ageing or whatsoever. Business class is up to date and I’m really satisfied. So what do you think of this business class? Do you like the arrangements? And the style of the cabin? Yes or no? Write me a comment. In accordance with its corporate identity here we have a blue pillow and a blue blanket. But why are they so heavy? Wow, such a heavy blanket. So, the middle seats are suitable for couples with the 1-2-1 seat configuration. If you’re traveling in pairs, middles seats are the best. You might not be able to look outside the window but at least you can talk with each other. This very flight I’m on right now is part of the round trip from Warsaw to Xiamen via Amsterdam. I cannot tell you the costs exactly. But it’s definitely not expensive. It was an irresistible offer, from Warsaw to Asia. By the way, I’ve posted videos about the trip on my website a few weeks ago. Just click on the “i” button and you’ll be directed to my website. If you subscribe our newsletter you’ll stay informed as long as there’s such an offer. So, don’t forget to click on the “i”! The Amenity Kit. Always a pleasure. When I fly business class I’m especially looking forward to it. I’ll show you later what’s inside. Maybe a pajama. Here is the racing belt the 3-point harness. I think that has something to do with the reverse herringbone seat. XiamenAir is the fourth biggest airlines here in China and a subsidiary of China Southern. Just like China Southern and KLM XiamenAir is a member of the SkyTeam Alliance as well That’s why they have codeshare agreement with KLM on flights to and from Europe. This is the In-Flight Entertainment system of XiamenAir. I haven’t been able to find many German films though. The menu has no German options either. Only in English, Chinese, Indian and something else. No, that’s all. The choices of films are also limited. Interesting, I can’t see the windows anymore. just like a Airbus and other airlines. This is a Dreamliner the windows can be dimmed down as you like. I can control it with the monitor. It should be dark now with the highest level set. But I can’t show you because it’s dark outside as well. Any idea what this is? Yes, this is a Wi-Fi voucher. On this 12 hours flight back to Europe I can use it to get free internet connection. Let’s see how fast it is and if it is as restricted as it is in China. We’ll see. Finally, the light is on. It was out for about half an hour. I was worried that there would be no light all the way. It would be unable to film in that case. But luckily, we got it. However, it won’t last for a long time. It’s just time for food and drink. The light will certainly go out afterwards because we’re in the middle of the night right now. So, let me show you how the bed works while there’s still light. Here’s the control panel. There’re 3 modes, which are sitting, lounge I have to hurry up now because the overhead bin must not be open while flying I’ll show you quickly. Wow, that was really comfortable. It might doesn’t look so but the mattress is so soft. However, there’s no enough room for my feet which is typical with reverse herringbone seats. There’s a lot of room for my head though and I think the length would be 1.9 m. I’ll show you the exact dimensions on the left and you’ll know what you can expect from it. I found it quite comfortable and I think I’ll have a good sleep. So, here are the 3 modes again. Sitting, lounge and flat bed. I can adjust it individually. That’s it. Hope you got a good look about this because I have to close the overhead bin now. I’ve been told to close it already. This is the, wait a minute I need to adjust the camera to show you more So here’s the bathroom up front, on the left side of the plane. I think there’s another one on the right side. It’s relatively small, but it’s very clean since this is an only 7 months old Dreamliner. Some amenities here hand cream, soap and a cup. This brings me back to the question. What do you think of this? Do you use the water on the plane to brush teeth? or clean your mouth? This is a brand new plane. I think I can do that here. And every time I go to the bathroom I’m given a piece of handkerchief. So I don’t need to wash my hands then. I haven’t shown you how the table works yet. It split in two and I have a handle below. I can put it in 3 different positions. We can put it away, but part of it is still out. then half out and all out. And every time I can unfold it accordingly. I’d like to use the middle position. It the suitable position for eating. OK, maybe the table is a little out of my reach. Wow! This is the appetizer here from Xiamen Air. A fresh salad with a croissant and a bun. Here’s the beef salad and the dressing. Oh, cool! It’s also quite elegant and high-level of XiamenAir to use the silver cutlery set. Good! I can’t even stop now. Wow! Really stylish! And the salad is truly fresh. Looks delicious. Interestingly, the main course comes after the appetizer which was here earlier. The salad. An now I can choose from the steamed rice, boiled rice and fried rice. I’ll take the normal one, steamed rice. Oh, fish! Fish finger, Haha! With chopsticks. I know how to use them. But I want the soup first and I’ll find out how the rest tastes later. There’s something hard to recognize. like this one. Whatever it is. And here’s the European Package with a spoon, a fork and a knife. Ha, seems I’ve got a problem now. I really want to plug the headphones into the audio output but the table is occupied now. It’ll be difficult. And every time there is a new pack of Western cutlery. So there were two different soup and three main courses to choose from. But the dessert is a must-try. A small cake with a fruit plate. Yeah, that’s right. I cannot make the choice. It’s on the menu I’ve shown you earlier. You can go back and find everything on it again. And during the flight, the whole flight there’ll be snacks. So, I’ve finished my foods now I think the cabin is about to go dark soon but there’s one more thing I want to show you. the Amenity Kit. Here we go. Let’s find out what’s inside. A blindfold. An eye mask and it’s soaked with something obviously. I’ll open it later. A comb. and Earplugs. Creams. Yeah, that’s it. Oh no, there’s something else. Of course, toothbrush and toothpaste. Yes, that’s all. These are the common items you needed. Very nice, though. I don’t know what to do with it yet. Here’s a velvet purse. Perhaps for glasses. You can use it. Whatever for. Here’s the blanket for sleeping. Really comfortable and soft. This is the softer and thicker pillow. Wow! 9 Hours Later Oh, I’ve had a very nice sleep here in this bed. Way too long I overslept actually. It’s only 1:00 now and breakfast is about to be served. Maybe I’ll get something else. I’m kinda hungry now. But perhaps you’ve noticed that I got a cold before the departure and now it just got worse during the sleep. I’m sure my voice will sound terrible later. How did this happen? Did I really catch a cold? The air pressure on the plane just made it worse and now I got a stuffy nose. I hate it. Hope I’ll get through this and get another breakfast. Guess I’m lucky. There’s still breakfast but only the western breakfast. I assume we’re about to land within 25 minutes. I’m satisfied and I’ll finish my breakfast quickly. The breakfast is served within only 5 minutes. I need to eat fast now XiamenAir flight attendants takes landing very carefully especially when the turbulence are not up to date. You need to buckle up. and it’s all accurately organized here. So the light show is going on right now I don’t even know what for, but it looks great. I want to say goodbye and thank you for watching my video. Hope you liked it. If you do, give us a thumb-up. Here comes the cliche. Subscribe to our channel and you’ve probably already have. I would also be grateful if you could spread GlobalTravel.TV by using the link at the bottom of the video description. I could get a small amount of commission fee and you don’t need to pay at all. I think Dominik and I would make one or two extra flights, perhaps. We’ll see. Thanks you very much and see you in our next video. Bye!

  1. Das mit dem die 787-8 stimmt nicht da sie grundsätzlich vollbesetzt weiterkommt also die 787-9 vollbesetzt das gleiche gilt für die A330er

  2. Hi Stefan,
    ich fliege bald geschäftlich nach Shanghai. Gerne würde ich in der Qsuite fliegen. Qatar fliegt von Frankfurt aus nach Doha mit einer A350 und einer 777. Ist in beiden Flugzeugen schon die Qsuite verbaut?

  3. kann es sein, daß die Business class recht schwach gebucht war?. Essen fand ich sehr durchschnittlich…aber der Preis machts….

  4. Super tolles Video! Wie immer 😋 Danke für die tollen einblicke! 😃 Macht spass euch beiden zuzusehen

  5. Ich kann mich den Anderen nur anschließen, wie immer ein super tolles Video. 🙂 Es macht immer so gute Laune deine/eure Videos zu schauen.

  6. Fliegt es sich anders wenn man in der Reverse bone Bestuhlung fliegt im Gegenteil zu geradeaus sitzend ?

  7. Super tolles Video , Tolle Grafik und dann noch sehr professionell gemacht und dargestellte!! Vor euch muss ich mein Hut ziehen!

  8. Super flight report, wie immer. Xiamen kannte ich bisher nur vom Namen. Musste schon 2x krank fliegen. War nach dem ersten Flug wieder komplett erholt. Beim Zweiten immer noch mit Erkältung gelandet.

  9. Ich wünschte mir das wir per WhatsApp mal sprechen. Das wäre für mich sehr aufrehgend also wenn du kannst dann schreibe mir per WhatsApp zurück. Hir ist meine Telefonnummer: +436645698460

  10. Also der Wassertank wird einmal im Monat desinfiziert und das ist auch das selbe Wasser mit dem dein Caffe oder Tee gemacht wird. Und wegen der Erkältung Kannst du Sinopret vorm fliegen nehmen das macht die Nebenhöhlen frei. Wie immer gutes Video Weiter so.

  11. Super tolles Video
    Ihr seid einfach klasse!
    Ich habe schon sehr gute Erfahrungen mit dieser Airline gemacht☺☺

  12. Mit einer Erkältung bin ich noch nicht geflogen jedoch ging beim letzten Urlaub 2 Tage vor der Abreise meine Grippe richtig los. 3 Stunden nach dem Flug konnte ich wieder etwas hören und vom Flug selbst habe ich so gut wie garnichts mitbekommen. Furchtbar.

  13. Könntest du mal mit koreanair oder asiana Airlines fliegen?
    Ps: bin gerade gestern von Seoul im A380 nach Paris geflogen und das erkältet, war nicht gerade eine gute Idee.

  14. Hi Stephan du machst viele coole Videos. Es wäre echt cool wen du ein Trip Report mit Air Serbia im a330 von Belgrad nach New York in der Business Class machen köntest. Wäre wirklich richtig cool 👍🏻👍🏻

  15. Wieder einmal ein tolles Video. Die Art und Weise, wie ihr die Videos gestaltet, gefällt mir sehr. Es gibt viele andere Blogger, die gehen mir mit ihrem Gehabe, wie DER HON, einfach nur auf die Nerven.
    Macht weiter so!

  16. Wie immer ein tolles und informatives Video, ich vermisse allerdings die Aufnahmen mit dem Gimbal, früher waren die Shots von der Kabine und dem Flughafen wesentlich besser. Ich würde mir wünschen, wenn ihr das Gimbal wieder vermehrt nutzt 🙂

  17. Wie immer ein supertolles Video von euch beiden. Ich bin euch beiden so dankbar dass ihr euch immer die Zeit nehmt und so tolle Videos zusammenschneidet. Respekt.
    Macht bitte weiter so und hört nie damit auf. Schönen Sonntag noch. ☺️

  18. Super Tripreport wie immer👌 ich würde das Wasser nicht nutzen aus dem Hahn auch nicht wenn der Flieger 7 Monate alt ist da diese Tanks nicht ausreichend gereinigt werden…lieber immer die Crew fragen mach einer Flasche Wasser zum Zähneputzen etc.

  19. Bin bei Xiamen Air in der Eco (in China) geflogen. Und ich hatte ein warmes Menü bekommen. Das nenne ich mal Service.

  20. I love you so much, but I only speak English.
    I haven't been able to watch one of your videos in a very long time!
    I can understand and (really) appreciate how much extra work it must be to put out an English video!!!! Could/would English subtitles be easier?
    Just wanted to let you know I miss watching!
    (To be honest, sometimes I've watched, but have absolutely no idea what is being said! Lol)
    Thanks for your hard work!! It doesn't go unnoticed!

  21. Vielen dank euch beiden das ihr euch die zeit nimt um zu Fliegen und diese videos zu machen. Hört nie auf und macht so weiter. Schönes Wochenende. 😀😁👍👌

  22. Mal wieder klasse Video. Ich schaue dich bzw deine Videos schon relativ lange und finde jedes super geschnitten und gefilmt. Meiner Meinung nach hättest du viel mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdient. Liebe Grüsse🤗

  23. bin mit lebensmittelvergifftung vom colombo nach zürich über dubai in der eco geflogen das war sehe schade

  25. Auf mein air canada Flug von Toronto nach London ,war ich auch erkältet und was ist die Hölle und ich meine nicht denn Service "Der Service ist göttlich".

  26. Super video! 👍und ja …. ich kenne das Gefühl wenn man verschnupft fliegt und das als ehemaliger Cabin Crew! Furchtbar! Geil fang ich die Mood light beim Top of descent in LGBT 🏳️‍🌈 Farben 😅

  27. Hallo Stefan, würde mich freuen wenn du mal mit Moldova Airline fliegst. Vielleicht auch Buissness Class. Es ist zwar eine eher "unbekanntere" Airline, fliegt aber super und auch der Service ist sehr gut.

  28. Du musst mal bei einer airline anfragen ob du einen tag mit denen als Praktikant verbringen kannst wäre mega geil und cool zu sehen!

  29. Super Video.

    Was mich als jemanden der noch nie Business oder First Class geflogen ist mal interessieren würde ist ob man die ganzen Sachen die da an dem Platz liegen wie Kopfhörer, Hausschuhe, Pyjama etc mitnehmen darf, oder ob das alles im Flugzeug bleiben muss.

  30. Thank you so much for adding English subtitles! I wish I could speak German, but I can't. I still like your vlogs very much though, and for me, the subtitles make your video even more enjoyable. Thank you!!!!

  31. nein, xiamen air is the sixth biggest airline of China,the the fourth one is hainan airline and the fifth one is shenzhen airline😊

  32. Wie immer ein tolles Video, danke dafür! Ich Gucke deine Viedeos immer mir einem lachen im Gesicht und denke,Oha hat der Spaß an seiner Sache! Ich finde das echt super, du hasst nie schlechte Laune und vermittelst alles Super!

  33. Somehow youtube guided me to your channel and I've been watching for the last hour solely based on the English subtitles, And I don't even know a word in German…keep up the good work, love from China

  34. Hey, schaue seit ein paar Monaten deine Videos, finde sie mega mega nice. Wollte mal fragen was sie Arbeiten um sich sowas zu leisten? Würde mich über eine Antwort freuen, mach weiter so und ich schaue weiter deine Video und lasse immer gerne ein Like da. 🙂

  35. Thank you for another great review! This was very informative and helpful, as I am traveling business class on Xiamenair soon.

  36. Als ich erkältet geflogen binn habe ich vorher Medizin genommen die zum Glück d2n ganzen Flug g3wirkt hat und unterwegs habe ich ein Nasenspray dabei gehabt. Gott sei dank das da immer nur so wenig drin ist.

  37. Ich bin mal mit einer sehr starkenGrippe von Zürich nach Goa geflogen. Und das am Winter.
    Ich dachte in den Tropen von Goa geht es schon wieder.
    Ich war so krank im Flieger. Diese trockene Luft und permanent diese Geräusche.
    Ich hab so geleidet im Flieger.
    OK, 😂 in der Holzklasse ist es nicht so der Hit.
    Ich fliege glaub nie wieder wenn ich krank bin.

    PS; in Goa wurde ich auch nicht gesund.
    Bei diesem Klima fühlen sich die importierten Vieren wie zu Hause.

  38. sag mal lieber „I‘ll have the Champagne“ und nicht „I take the Champagne“. ist freundlicher. aber sonst wie immer toller review. danke.

  39. 99% aller Xiamen Airline User fliegen Holzklasse – was nützt den Leuten Eure arrogante Firstclass Scheiße… Wenn Ihr ein Video machen wollt, dass 99% aller Xiamen Passagiere interessiert, dann macht eines aus der Economy – aber dafür seid Ihr Euch zu fein… Gehts scheißen mit dem Wichtigtuer Dreck… zum kotzen die Angeber Scheiße…

  40. How come I never seen good "chinese hospitality". Every time I flew China Eastern economy or had interactions in China with Chinese I've had bad experiences.

  41. Hallo ihr Beide,
    Ich muss mal was loswerden.
    Und zwar ich finde es leider Unverschämt wenn man beim Essen einen Kopfhörer auf hat, oder um den Hals hängen hat. Das ist nicht fair alleine gegenüber den Flugbegleiter. Das macht ihr in einem Restaurant foch auch nicht.
    Ich finde das ist ein Bisschen Hochnäsig.
    Lg. Martin.

  42. Könnt ihr mal mit ANA NRT-HNL fliegen? Würde mich interessieren, wie ihr das A380 Produkt bewertert.

  43. dominik…..du bist auf sendung…..nicht zahnstochern wenn du im bild bist….was soll mama sagen????

  44. Hallo Stefan, Danke erstmal fuer die tollen Videos. Eine Frage, kann Mann mit Xiamen Flying Blue xp sammeln?

  45. Hi Stefan, I've read about bad reviews of Xiamen Airlines especially international to international connecting flights and delays. Never experienced somebody ushering us to Business. Is the treatment very different for others who are not vloggers or doing reviews with cameras? I'm planning to take Xiamen Airlines with less than 3 hours layover. Did you have any experience with their connecting flights? Thank you.
