Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "personel provided excellent service"
Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Pros: "Nothing. It was a horrible experience."
Cons: "They could have checked in our bags but didn't. They could have been more courteous. They could have checked us in through to our final destination (Seattle) but didn't. I will never fly China Eastern again."

Pros: "Crew still managed to provide me the veg meal, even though they didn't get the request."

The food in business class was outstanding. There was plenty to eat during the meals and the quality was surprisingly good. You could also order snacks and drinks throughout the flight. A great selection of movies also."

Cons: "Food is not tasty, besides that everything went well. Friendly staff and quite comfy seats."
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"
Cons: "Had to take buses on and off the planes in Shanghai. Added at least 20 minutes each way to the process and it was very uncomfortable to be squeezed in a bus waiting to get “full”"
Pros: "nice service"
Cons: "all passengers of economy almost boarded but we had to wait for a minibus to take us to the plane, this is ridiculous"
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?"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Distance between the seats"
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: "I appreciated that they provided two full meals as well as a sandwich. Flight attendants were also consistently walking the aisles offering water. The movie selection was great. I have a lot of cons written down, but tbh for the price I thought it was comparable with other (domestic) flights I've had."
Cons: "There was definitely someone(s) smoking on the plane - cigarette smoke would waft through the cabin intermittently. Free wi-fi should be made available. My seat wouldn't stay reclined, so I had to push down on it the whole time. I took a flight from JFK to Taipei with a long layover in Taipei. No significant delays, but the boarding process in both areas was unorganized; everybody just kind of lines up in a large mass. Boarding doesn't actually begin until like 5-10 min before the stated departure time, so actual departure is also pushed back. However, we ended up arriving around the stated time so I guess it doesn't really matter."
Pros: "Nice flight and nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "I had an accident dislocated my shoulder on my way to airport. My wife called all the possible numbers but no one helped. We missed our flight due to medical emergency in an alien country and China Eastern wasn’t helpful atall."
Pros: "Loved the service and entertainment packages on the big screens. The meals are abundant."
Cons: "The provided headphones combine background music and sound equally with vocals drowning the latter out making the audio experience unbearable. I had to use my own headphones for quality sound."
Cons: "transfer process in Shanghai choatic. Need to wait for staff to take me to transfer area. Airport staff in Shanghai rude."
Pros: "the crew were fantastic thank you"
Pros: "Personal, comfortable, easy"
Cons: "The breakfast pack was ok but the scroll thingy was dry and not very nice!"
Pros: "The staff was excellent and nice . Looking after everybody same"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and ahead ov time"
Pros: "good selection of movies"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The food were not fresh and ill prepared"
Pros: "The veggie meals they served on the flight from shanghai to lax was one of the best meals I’ve ever had on a plane and one of the best I’ve had anywhere. I was pleasantly surprised. Immigration check in and baggage claim in lax took 20 minutes total! Wow that was fast and efficient."
Pros: "2 meals included and a glass of wine! Makes the 8+ hour flight easy. The flight crew was very nice. My personal headphones worked just fine for the in-seat entertainment options."
Pros: "The flight attendants and ground staff are always friendly and helpful. I get great deals on China Eastern flights.I just went to Honolulu from Taipei for less than $700 USD I just hate that long lay overs come with it."
Cons: "I hate that in order to get great prices flights you have to have crazy long lay overs. For example my flight to Honolulu layer over in Shanghai for 21 hours. Before my flight f4om Ningbo to Taipei, I had a 10 hour lay over. I spent more time waiting for flights than actually airborne. I honestly never enjoy the main entres of the meals on this airline."
Pros: "I made the round trip reservations 3 months prior to flight; was excited to stay in Shanghai for 24 hours. Was told that I would be able to leave the airport in Shanghai with a 144 hour entrance visa there. The airline made a reservation for a hotel, taxi both ways and I could visit the city while there."
Cons: "Unfortunately, US tariff plans were made public 3 days before my flight and as a result when I checked in at the CEAir in SFO prior to flight was told I could NOT leave airport in Shanghai for the 24+ hour layover and hotel, taxi and sightseeing were not possible. As a result my flight was cancelled and I had to make reservations for the following day with China Airlines for a direct flight to Taipei, with a 3.5 hr layover and 4.5 hour flight to my destination in Depassar, Bali. The 1 way ticket was more expensive that the entire round trip flight SFO to Shanghai to Bali. Not pleased with the last minute change due to US policy intentions. Not my fault!"
Pros: "Food n service"
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: "good price. on time. reasonably comfortable seats."
Cons: "unannounced gate change that almost led to our missing the flight. mediocre food and non-existent entertainment."
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!"
Pros: "The price was amazing. You can’t beat rt from Chicago to Singapore for $630. Considering that’s what I paid, the flight was excellent. But overall and compared to other international flights, it was alright."
Cons: "The food wasn’t stellar (although, what airplane food is?), and my seat didn’t recline properly. That was really a pain, as it was a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff efficient."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Tv’s kept cutting out. It was so loud."
