Hi,

my flight will depart from KMG very early in the morning, so I wonder if the airport is open at night and it is allowed to stay there to spend the night.

Thanks!

THIRD WORLD STANDARD

I came by plane from Bangkok, flying to HK (gate 70) a few days later.

1) In boarding area, I sat in cafe to have breakfast. Tables were so dirty I got food stuck on my laptop. I showed the staff how dirty was the table but did not care

2) Second cafe: Not plug for computer. Come on, it's 2016.

3) Third cafe with many tables: Sofa was 20 years old and so damaged. Got it from trash? Plugs again could not work

4) Wifi has got very poor connection is the whole airport

5) Very little choice of Food and Beverage in general.

Not a world-standard airport at all (except the shiny-new look).

Etant très fatigués, nous avons décidé d'aller à l'hôtel à l'intérieur de l'aéroport qui propose des chambres pour la nuit ou pour quelques heures.
Nous prenons une chambre pour 4h. A peine arrivés dans la chambre, je vais aux toilettes et je tire la chasse.
L'eau ne s'écoule pas, je retente une deuxième fois et là, de l'eau s'écoule dans toute la salle de bain.
Je sors et appelle la femme de ménage, qui coupe l'eau et essuie par terre.
Je me rends à l'accueil et demande à changer de chambre.
Là, la personne de l'accueil vient dans la chambre et appelle le directeur qui me regarde et me dit "Give me 2000 yuans" (seuls mots en anglais qu'il connaissait).
J'ai répondu que non, que ce n'était pas de ma faute et le cauchemar a commencé.
Le directeur a appelé la police qui est arrivé et comme personne ne parlait anglais (et encore moins français), ils m'ont demandé de les suivre à travers l'aéroport pour trouver un traducteur.
J'ai passé 3h à raconter mon histoire à des hôtesses d'accueil, à des gens au téléphone, et au commissariat de police de l'aéroport.
La réponse était toujours la même "2000 yuans"... et j'avais beau expliquer que je n'y étais pour rien, que je n'avais pas payé des heures d'hôtel dans le seul but de casser les toilettes, que je n'avais fait qu'appuyer sur le bouton de la chasse d'eau, que j'étais la cliente et étrangère de surcroit.... rien n'y a fait.
Le policier a fini par me dire (via quelqu'un qui a traduit), que si je ne payait pas, notre départ serait compromis et plus tard, que je risquais de finir en prison !!!!
Le matricule du policier est le suivant : 054933
La tentative d'intimidation a réussi car au bout de 3 h, épuisée, j'ai baissé les bras et nous avons commencé à négocier. Nous avons proposé 1000 yuans, le directeur a dit "1500", nous avons réussi à baisser à 1300.
Au moment de payer, il voulait du cash et je voulais payer par carte bleue pour garder une trace. Ca l'a contrarié mais au bout d'un moment, il a accepté. Il m'a même remboursé la chambre (4 x 78 yuans), mais m'a demandé mon ticket de réservation de la chambre.
Il a fait ça pour faire comme s'il s'agissait d'un paiement pour une chambre.
Il aura donc gagné 600 yuans, car bien sûr il va être remboursé par son assurance.
Les toilettes ont été remplacés dans l'heure par des techniciens. En France, cette partie des toilettes coûte 30 euros et pour nous cela aura coûté 100 euros, alors que nous n'y sommes pour rien.
Je suis outrée par un tel comportement. Le racket du directeur et l'intimidation du policier corrompu sont inadmissible.
J'ai été obligé d'abdiquer pour pouvoir m'échapper de Chine.
Une chose est sûre. Je n'irai plus jamais en Chine (même en transit), et je vais faire tout ce que je peux pour prévenir les français qui pourraient être dans mon cas.

곤명공항 너무 짜증난다.13년1월4일 인천오는동방항공 안개로 결항,2013년1월5일02시10분 출발예정이던것이4시가 넘어도 지연맨트한마디없었으며(이상기온으로 공항은 왜그리 춥던지),직원들은 영어(한국어)한마디 하지못하고 도망다니기 바쁘더라.중국사람은 외국인은 전혀 배려하지못하는 것같음.대국이란 이런것인가 저희나라 관광객을 너무 무시해 여행 잘하고 마지막 기분 잡쳤음 우리대한민국 인천공항이 최고!!! 동방항공은 매너재로 빵점

Let me honest to you guy. I hate kunming airport. Service was bad.

The airport is nice but people here don't really understand English. Low services.

Also China Eastern Airline is not a good airline to fly with.


The airport will clear out all the passenger and reopen again at 6am. Stupid

We enjoyed the new airport very much. Spacious, clear design, clean and easy to navigate. Nevertheless some aspects can still be improved. F.e. The restaurant that is serving western food in the entrance hall (1floor near counter D an E) . We ordered some simple sandwiches. After 45 minutes we still did not recieve any! And we were not the only ones who had to wait so long. Several other guest complained too. After 1 hour we decided to leave. Obviously they have got a problem with the kitchen staff! Luckely we could get some sandwiches at spr coffee at the terminal. Friendly staff, quick service and good quality.

Very disappointed with Kunming airport's public relationship. After an wonderful holiday in China we reached Kunming domestic airport from Shanghai at 7 pm, we had to wait for 7 hours for our outward flight by China Eastern Airlines. The domestic airport was hot and stuffy (AC was not working) toilets were overflowing and strangely, there were only six seats available for several hundred passengers. We waited seating on staircases until the authorities allowed us to enter the international section.
Beijing or Shanghai airports are great for passenger comfort but immediate action must be taken by Kunming airport authorities to provide basic comforts for paying passengers,
