Juneyao / Spring Airlines: PVG - HKG

Anyone taken Spring airlines from HKG to PVG...comment on their timeliness? I saw they have $45 USD one way flights on their web site. Not sure if that includes all of the taxes and baggage allowance.

Can't find any info on flightstats for them. However, I did see Juneyao is also flying the route, any comments on Juneyao or where even to book the tix for them?

Next cheapest is MU I saw for bookings 60 days out.

I believe HK is their first 'international' route so don't know anything about it. I've ridden them a few times domestically, it was fine.

Try booking on Ctrip or Elong. I haven't tried in a long time but I do believe international cards should work fine now.

For airlines like these, I would try to book on their websites first. Sometimes ctrip accepts foreign plastic; sometimes they don't (it seems they switch processors almost quarterly).

Regarding the $45 fares, I'd be willing to bet that those come in at over $100 once taxes/fees are added on,.... still a great deal.

Just set up an account and checked online; $45 tix come out to a total $83.20 USD for 9C, Spring Airlines OW HKG to PVG.

Free Baggage Allowance: your free baggage allowance is 15 kg (including checked baggage and unchecked baggage).

They must be running a promo cuz now I see some $30 tix which end up being $68.10 but can only buy tix till the 3rd week of March.

Eighty-three bucks? That's a pretty good deal!

Tell us how the trip goes afterwards.

Ended up buying a ticket on MU because I need to travel in April and the 9C tix are not being sold yet for April. Also, MU cuz they have more flight times and was only $20 more.

Do Juneyao Biz class passengers have access to a lounge in PVG domestic?

I have TRIED to fly Juneyao twice now. Both times THEY cancelled the flight, once a month prior to departure date and the other two weeks prior. Both times, ended up flying China Eastern without paying more money but it was a hassle because the scheduling was off.

If you really need to get somewhere stress free, don't use these folks however if you don't mind being inconvienced a bit it is worth it.

Bought a ticket last minute with Spring. Can't believe they plan on selling standing tickets. Fly to Shenzhen and save your sanity.

Does anyone know what the Spring Airlines site doesn't allow November dates to be chosen yet?
