May I know the price of business class seats from Guiyang to Kunming?
And what is the difference between business and VIP?
Answers (1)
Answered by Maude from USA | Aug. 19, 2019 20:46

Business class seats should be around USD97 per person. The seat layout is very similar between business class and VIP. Both of them had 2 seats on one side and one on other side. But I would suggest business class seats. The seats are very different. Business class seats are much better. VIP seats are very like first class seats.

Is there is discount for senior travelers over 65 years old?
Is it worthwhile to buy VIP seats for this 2.5 hours trip to Kunming?
Answers (1)
Answered by Zara from AUSTRALIA | Mar. 13, 2019 19:12

Hi, I was informed that there is only discount for child. No discount for senior people. In fact, from what I saw, it is not a big difference between VIP and First. First class seat is enough for me. Surely, if you like you can have a try with the VIP seats, it is not a big price difference two.

Thank you for your inquiry.
The ticket begin for sale 28 days within the departure date. If the tickets for your trip already available for sale, we will confirm your ticket soon after you complete the booking. The delivery will be arranged when your hotel checkin date is approaching. Usually the express will reach your hotel about 1 or 2 days before your hotel checkin date only so that there is no chance of losing it. You can collect the express from hotel once you reach there.
