I will never fly through China again. Maybe it was the mandatory retinal scan just to transfer to another flight or the complete set of fingerprints they require. There are many better and inexpensive flights to Asia if you look.
Great flight great food
A lot of value considering the cheap ticket prices. All meals served were Chinese food. Would fly them again considering the ticket was half the price of any others
Pros: The food was great
Cons: Hotel provided was ok but I expected more . The wait to get to the hotel was way too long and people at airport were not helpful. There was no clear instructions on where to wait, who we were to deal with . The directions were misleading.
Pros: Standard flight
Cons: My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight.
Pros: The seat was fine
Cons: Everything was fine no problems
Pros: The flight was smooth. Food was on time . Wine is available for the anxious flyers who can’t sleep.
Cons: Better softer hand soap , sprays and lotion . Sleep mask
Pros: No , blankets .
Cons: Cleaner restrooms, blankets and verbal offers
Cons: delay of about 1 hour, we almost missed our international flight from beigin
Pros: It was a terrible, long and very crowded flight.
Cons: The people/passengers. The whole flight felt like a budget airline. I am not looking forward to the return.
Pros: The seat was comfortable.
Cons: The service on board could have been better.
Pros: The crew was very attentive and most good English
Cons: The food could have been better and there could have been a better selection of movies.
Pros: Nice staff.
Cons: Although I've ordered vegan food about 3 months in advance, I have not been provided with a vegan meal and received cheese lasagne. Pretty sad on such a long distance flight.
Pros: On time departure, good leg room, and comfortable seats
Pros: Great crew in business class!
Cons: Wifi was terrible, entertainment is below average and angle seats for a 12 hour flight is sub par. The food was so so
Cons: Gate is crowded and no escalator only steps. No clear area for business class and its a fiasco boarding
Cons: Food is too salty, can’t even eat .
Pros: Dated entertainment on the inside televisions and some of the headphones and movies were hard to understand because of the audio quality. But the bottom line was I couldn’t find a cheaper flight for my trip and overall I look for savings and my airfare.
Cons: Customer service from the flight crew was pretty dry, my biggest complaint though was that there was very much stagnant air quality and no ventilation at HC location like I am normally a custom on most other planes.
Cons: Headphones were not provided.
Pros: My flight was canceled but the ground crew was amazing I was really worried but China Eastern's ticket people were very professional! Highly recommend.
Cons: The plane stopped at an airport between Shanghai and Kunming, which was not shown in iteneray. I got off at this airport thinking I arrived in Kunming. . I was told that I have to check in again at Kunming. When I tried to check in again, there was only one person in the entire airport checking in passengers and she spoke no English. We finally figured out what had happened and barely made it back to the plane before it departed for Kunming.
Cons: The flight to Shanghai was delayed and I missed the coincidence, the crew did not explain much, I was rerouted and I arrived with 13 hours delay
Cons: Layover was too long. The airline changed the flight schedules
Pros: Crew are good seat was a little small
Cons: WiFi never work and food was salty
Pros: Crews are amazing but the set is a little too tight.
Cons: WiFi never work and food was bad everything is salty.
Pros: We had nice reclining seat, I was able to sleep comfortably.
Cons: They ran out of some of the food so we had less options. The main dish was ok but the side salad was wilted and did not look fresh.
Cons: Worst airline
Pros: Crew very pleasant and eager to Please cheerfully
Cons: The three layer sandwiches were pretty average. Food was ok. Sometimes flying other direction from BKK to sad food is better
Pros: Food was good, on flight entertainment was good, crew was friendly and accommodating. No major complaints! I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very impressed
Cons: The basic economy was snug but I was okay with it. I only wished my seat reclined a bit further but I was up against a back wall so others in further aisles up had much better reclining distance.
