PC and Mobile version
Once customers gets on their website, an option to download the mobile version is shown. If customers are having language barrier problems the option to change the language is located on the top right of the page and it’s interchangeable to English, Chinese and Japanese. However the colors of the page are plain white and red which is similar to Hong Kong’s flag. The layout of fonts are too small and often time not understandable and some part of the website words are overlapping.
The features of the website let customers to book international or domestic flights, check-in online, book hotel reservations, car rentals, get travel insurance, check flight status and ticket validation. The sub-functions of the page showing in headings provide customers the option to check on their services, frequent flyer, online shopping and other necessary travel information. The background of the page flashes images of the latest promotions Hong Kong Airlines offers.
The mobile version of Hong Kong Airlines gives customers the option to check flight status and promotions. However as to customer reviews the mobile app is not really helpful and useful to rely on.
Hong Kong Airlines’ Feedback
Hong Kong Airlines receives a lot of “WOW” and praises from their customers. One reviewer was exceptionally happy with his review when he said “We flew Hong Kong Airlines from Chongqing to Hong Kong on a Sunday morning. Check in was fast and friendly, my boyfriend asked for an aisle seat and we got upgraded to exit seats without having to ask for it. Flight left approx on time, flight attendants were very polite and friendly and eager to help. Seats were comfortable, plane was quite new. We got a warm breakfast and served cold and hot drinks. Entertainment was good, no personal screens (not necessary on a 2 hour flight), lots of magazines and even English newspaper. We arrived with a 15 minutes delay. For flying at such low fares (comparable to low-cost airlines, where you have to pay for your own food and drinks and cramped in little seats) Hong Kong Airlines offers excellent service.”

My Last Say
As to sum up together with the other Hong Kong Airlines review, this airline is really uptight with their quality of customer service which makes them reach the 30th spot in this year’s “The World’s Top 100 Airlines” again they proved that language barrier was never a setback for them to compete internationally.
