Pros: "Plane was okay/good. Crew was good."
Pros: "Plane was good (Economy class)"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but not very professional. Food and comfort in business class was pretty good."
Cons: "Departure - there was no gate number shown for long time, but in 15 minutes after the gate number appeared on the list, there was announcement, that gate was going to close. Arriving - it took more than an hour to get out of the plane after we landed. No announces about why and how long..."
Pros: "For the price, expectations were exceeded. Food was adequate, entertainment was adequate (bring your own ear buds or headphones; older 2-prong connection so took a bit of wiggling to get sound from both ears), seats were adequate with a bit of legroom (I'm 6'-1" and fit okay, but with shorter legs)"
Cons: "It is a Chinese airline, so rules are very rigid (no handheld or earphones 30 minutes before landing, seatbacks up 30 minutes, etc.). Boarding was mass boarding for an A330."
Cons: "Ground service staff (not individual) in PVG showed poker face to customers not only to me."
Cons: "MU ground service in PVG was fair during check in, it was not as polite as in HK."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."

Cons: "I was surprised for an overnight flight, no pillows provided, no toothpaste available, need to take hus from plane to terminal"
Pros: "It was cheap but I would not do it again"
Cons: "I made friends with another passenger who when texting his number introduced himself as ‘XYZ, flight from hell’. That pretty much sums it up but here’s a laundry list of issues I faced on the trip 1. They landed us in a different airport in China and did not inform us on how to get to the other airport (PVG). After several failed attempts of catching a taxi that accepts Visa or US dollars, we finally got a bus that ferried us 2. They also did not automatically transfer the luggage, so I had to carry my two checked in bags to the other one and then stand in a 45 min queue to get them checked in again 3. Unhelpful ground staff 4. Delayed second flight. After a shitty eight hour long layover, we got another 2 5. Horrible food 6. No ear plugs are available in the plane 7. Not a single apology from the crew about the delay Also, anyone who doesn’t speak mandarin needs to understand that the crew in China is not well equipped to understand and help you, so be prepared to have the translation struggle"
Pros: "clean cabin, nice service, smooth connection"
Cons: "some of the crew didn't understand English very well, not much movie choice on board"
Pros: "Punctual. Seat space better than most airline"
Cons: "Food is meh"
Pros: "The price and availability was a plus. Food and drinks was too. No personal entertainment....short flight anyways. If leaving or arriving from HKG, you will be taking the shuttle on the Tarmack, so you maybe out in the weather for a few. Clean and friendly. Would fly again."
Cons: "They rescheduled my return flight a few hours earlier, but offered no compensation....also it was about 30 minutes late. So what was the point in making the flight earlier?"
Cons: "There was a movie playing in Chinese no other entertainment the food didn’t taste good and I’m not a picky eater. Staff members seemed to not like to offer me drinks when they walked around and offered the Chinese person next to me water or tea but didn’t offer me anything this happened 2 times on that short flight"
Pros: "Airline staff at the airport were super nice and helpful"
Cons: "They airline can’t add your TSA pass to the boarding pass Food is definitely not as interesting compare to other flights even though mine was only rice and beef and nothing Asian."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Short layover, very good price."
Cons: "Very obvious the crew (at least in my section) have a problem with Non- Chinese people. Their attitude changed to others as well as me when they are asked for something. Very noticeable!!!!!!"
Pros: "Inattentive service which is typical of Chinese airlines. Food mediocre for business class, Korean Air much better. Flight was safe and in time, bed was narrow but comfortable for a slim person."
Pros: "The service was good and the temperature was great, The Crew was friendly and helpful. The restrooms were very clean and kept well. The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaos and they do not follow their own rules. It is quiet discomforting trying to get to a gate and on the plane. The food was strictly Asian. The service for Liquids, drinking, of any kind was very limited. I took my own water on board to stay hydrated."
Pros: "I was not feeling well, so I did not eat food. I saw them serving a full meal, and I thought it’s a good service for a two hour flight. Seats were bigger and easier to sleep than their international flight."
Cons: "There was not entertainment for economy."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and ahead ov time"
Cons: "Way too many announcements. Many were not comprehendible. Gate changes were not announced and continuously kept happening with China eastern airline. They were not efficient with bag storage because people’s bags were all ending up in different aisles."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The food were not fresh and ill prepared"
Pros: "Amazing flight"
Cons: "They never pick up the phone when you call them at their offices."
Pros: "Planes were clean and relatively new."
Cons: "The flight from Delhi to Shanghai was three hours late due to bad weather wt Shanghai. China eastern agents at Delhi lied about the status of the connecting flight from Shanghai to SFO and made us start the journey knowing fully well that we will miss the connection. At Shanghai the agent and her manager were one of the most rude and incompetent folks I have come across - they took three hours to handle 50 passengers. And to top it the immigration folks were equally inefficient they took 3 hours to clear 40 ~ 50 folks for 24 hours transit visa. There were two agents and one supervisor. Do the math - 13 to 16 minutes per person. We stood in line for straight 6 hours. My wife had swollen feet for next few days. China may be great at manufacturing but service is surely not theie thing. Avoid Shanghai airport and China Eastern like the plague."
Pros: "Delay ex Manila was said to be 3 hours but was shortened. Looking at bright side."
Cons: "The reception in Shanghai did not at first permit me to connect on my flight to Rome. If I missed that I have a flight on Monday 11am to Geneva that I would miss. My shortened layover in Shanghai due to Manila delay was still 45 minutes but Inwas being asked to transfer and get another flight through the transfer desk. Luckily After a few minutes in line at the transfer desk, was allowed back on my original flight. However and unfortunately, it was due to another 2 hour delay. arrived Rome 815++ pm ISO 6pm."
Pros: "I do not think the check in staff could have been any more useless, they wanted us to collect our luggage at every transfer, the plane was cramped, obviously made for people a lot shorter than my 6 ft, majority of the food was not edible for western people. I will not be using them again."
Pros: "Same lie flat seat which is fine, entertainment is limited to about 15 movies. They run the cabin too warm (had four flights with them this trip all about the same). Good crew, friendly and professional. Food was about same as other Skyteam partners. Biggest issue by far is they serve an extra meal about halfway through the trans-pacific flights that makes it impossible to sleep for the flight. Full lights on, smells, etc.. Also Pudong/Shanghai airport is not well ran these days with poor food choices and no 24 hour food services except vending machines, and no heat in winter. Some gates are about 50-55 degrees F."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Very disappointed with seat, choice of movies and food was not edible. Very poor when compared to business class on other airlines."
Cons: "The food!"
Cons: "There was NO FLIGHT! I purchased this package under the presumption that I would be FLYING from airport to airport until I reached NYC. A three and a half hour bus ride on a 30 plus year old bus without a toilet AND proper functioning heat was NEVER mentioned. Because if it was I would have demanded a a direct flight or a refund. I was utterly devastated after walking around from kiosk to kiosk, line after line, to finally get the news that the flight I was looking for didn’t exist. That I would have to leave the airport by bus, a ticket that I would have to purchase myself, on an hour ride trip to a bus station, where I would have to take another bus 3.5 hours away to another airport. I spent a good fifteen minutes on the phone discussing the matter with a China Eastern rep. “Why on earth would some book a travel plan like this?” He told me it was the agency’s fault and not theirs. That there was a direct flight from Phuket to Shanghai but they didn’t put me on it. He also told me if I wanted to get home I had to catch that bus. With no other options available he had the woman at the counter write down the information on a post it note in Chinese characters to show person at the bus info/ticket line. I leave the desk in search of this airport bus depot and make a stop to exchange my few remaining American dollars for Chinese dollars to pay for this bus that not only wasn’t mentioned, but wasn’t paid for either. Of course when I drag all my bags down to the bus line and present my note the people have no idea what I want. I proceed to be bounced back and forth between the bus line and a new information desk like a tennis ball for 15 minutes. One of the most humiliating and embarrassing experiences I’ve had in quite some time. All the while in my head knowing that the window for me to make this bus and to make this flight is closing quickly. I give up on the bus at this point and decide to try my luck at a cab because I’m sure by this time of there was a bus I definitely missed it. I go outside to find that there are NO marked taxis in the designated taxi area. Just a bunch of guys speaking broken English fighting to get me in their unmarked cars telling me they all know the best way to go. Out of pure desperation to get home and get out of this ridiculous predicament this agency put me in, against my better judgement, I got in a unmarked car with a complete stranger, in a foreign country, with no ability to communicate with him, with no cell phone service in case of an emergency, and trusted him to take me to my destination. I’ve seen horror movies with less red flags than this but thank God it worked out and he got me to the station 20 minutes before the bus took off. The nightmare was only half over because now I had to ride in a bus that looked like it would fall apart any minute. It was 20 degrees outside with snow on the ground and we rode for the first 30 minutes of the trip with no heat! I was freezing, my fingers were numb I had to"
Pros: "Food, service on board"
Cons: "Im not realize that my luggage is not direct to nagoya, so i need to claimed my luggage, re-check in and imigration in shanghai. I just have 2,5 hours to do all stuff. Thanks god i make it to onboard in time with help other passanger that let me do immigration check first."
