I liked the cleanliness of the flight, my check in bags got loaded into cargo for some reason and I had to wait over 30 mins for them to arrive becuase a thunderstorm hit and they people in charge didn’t want to drive the cargo section over in a thunderstorm.

I liked the cleanliness of the flight, my check in bags got loaded into cargo for some reason and I had to wait over 30 mins for them to arrive becuase a thunderstorm hit and they people in charge didn’t want to drive the cargo section over in a thunderstorm.

Paid full SQ fare but return trip was on scoot and without any entertainment and no given choice for food.

My seat wasn’t comfortable enough even though I paid for it. Seafood menu wasn’t good. I was left hungry throughout my flight because I cannot eat a lot of stuff :( overall it was a pleasant flight. Passengers are pretty well behaved and less noisy compared to Cathay Pacific. There are no toilet seat papers.

Cons: "None"
Cons: "Please don’t use just fly.com ever. They cancelled my tkt and never accommodated a new one"
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."

Cons: "Aircraft was dated with old business class seats which are worn. Minimal options in movies to watch"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor"
Pros: "SGN-SIN is normally less than two hours. Business class very comfortable. I did not use the entertainment system -- it had trouble starting, by the way. Crew very attentive to passengers' needs."
Cons: "The aircraft had landed on time. Why does it take so long to start boarding? Of course the delay in take-off snowballed, more delays were added circling the airport of SIN."

Cons: "Like most airlinesuccessful the space was cramped."
Cons: "one of the passenger ticket seat was not allocated in same flight as with other two passenger. However they worried and somehow they handle through made all in one flight. Also one another thing, once they arrived in SFO, they could not get the flight assistant, they have to mange them selves"

At Seat D19 headphone jack had a problem. No entertainment!

The noise level from the plane is deafening. But glad they had tomato juice.

Flight offered vegetarian only food. Was unable to offer anything with meat.

I guess it wasn’t they’re fault, but there was a almost 3 hour day and most of it was after we boarded so you were stuck just waiting on the plane

Charlottetown airport is wonderful. Montreal was a bit confusing & overwhelming but the Air Canada staff were helpful, patient & kind. I’d fly with them again..

Pros: "The crew were friendly & made us feel welcomed"
Pros: "Food and beverage service was great, especially the the wine/beer and hot meals on the long flight."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for the long flight. Cushions and blanket were nice."
Cons: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Cons: "They should provide headphones to use the entertainment system."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lady at check in, Helen, at Pearson was TERRIBLE. No compassion for us travelling with a 2 month old baby, and then booked our seats with united in separate locations with no bassinet. I will never use air Canada Again."
Cons: "Upon landing, we made it through customs. Each step of the way when our tickets were scanned, we we told our flight had already departed... Even though we had a 4 hour layover. Even the boards showed the 8:55 pmflight had already departed.... At 5pm. Finally made it to customer service and they gave us the gate number and confirmed the flight didn't leave until 8:55. Then the flight got delayed 20 minutes. No problem, but after boarding we sat in the cramped and poorly cushioned seats for 45 minutes before takeoff because the plane needed servicing. Air jets would not turn off and my husband, who had a window seat, was freezing due to cold air constantly blowing around his feet. When we got off the plane he could barely feel his feet."
Pros: "Once on the flight, everything went well."
Cons: "Real nightmare as I had booked YUL-LYS-BRU with Brussels Airlines (SN). YUL-LYS was operated with Air Canada. Came within 4 minutes of missing flight despite being at airport 3 hrs early. SN had not released ticket to Air Canada so they could not check me in. Had to call SN customer service after AC could not check me in, then wait and wait as they had to try to correct the mistake 3x before AC counter could issue boarding passes. Terrible experience going through this with 2 small kids waiting. It’s as if the two airlines’ systems don’t communicate but passenger is responsible for resolving."
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled and rebooked with a connecting flight."
Cons: "Staff was rude; they seemed more interested in talking to themselves than assisting customers. Air Canada never treats customers properly."
Pros: "Good price, clean, free movies, descent movie selection."
Cons: "Bring your own snacks. No gluten free options unless pre-arrange. No fruit, no peanuts, no option to buy food, and the snack gallery only had pretzels. If you like bread, butter and water, should be ok. Close seats, can feel movement of people beside and behind."
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "We paid extra for bulkhead seats at the front of economy. One of the stewards working in business class repeatedly came to get something out if the compartment over my head. The noise woke me up over and over. I finally asked him what he was getting and he told me it was his lunch! Irritating."
Pros: "I can't fault Air Canada Cabin crew - they are absolutely wonderful. I had a situation with a woman who decided she wanted to take my window seat and the cabin crew was amazing with how they handled the situation. They are always so friendly, attentive."
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt airport was God Awful. The supervisor there was so rude to people, treating us all like cattle. The boarding process was unorganized, confusing, we were getting conflicting instructions from staff and then verbally abused by the supervisor there."
Cons: "This flight was two and a half hours late. We lost an hour and 45 minutes due to a mechanical problem with our airplane, then lost another 45 minutes due to a storm in Toronto. Air Canada blamed the weather for our late arrival, my missed connection and claimed no responsabilility for the fact that my trip ended up taking more than 24 hours when it was supposed to take about 9 hours. Also, there was the matter of the lost luggage which was a carry on that I accepted to have checked as the Air Canada staff seemed desperate to check our carry ons on a full flight to Toronto from Montreal. I ended up spending the night in the Vancouver airport without access to my luggage."
Pros: "The counter employees as well as the people who helped me navigate the airport ( I am disabled) were very helpful."
Cons: "The crew on the plane seemed very overburdened and somewhat annoyed by passengers. Maybe they were having a challenging day. I don't know. I didn't even want to ask for a glass of water."
Pros: "It flew from point a to b safely"
Cons: "Last time I saw a similar cabin was when I was 10! I'm 37 now. The overhead baggage bins were made for small bags from a different century. seats were grey....grey. In flight entertainment was by app...that you have to download first, I should have known beforehand. Food was little munchies. Seemed like an old and tired airline"
Pros: "We flew Toronto to Milan"
Cons: "Air canada doesn't know how to run an airline and should stop trying. They are hurting all of their passengers,and they do not care."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the electric/USB outlets made all the difference! By the end of the flight, my phone was charged and I was ready to see Montreal!"
Cons: "Paying for seats."
Pros: "The overall process was painless and the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Seats were very close to the seat in front of you. If you're over 6 foot 1 inch don't fly with them."
Cons: "My experience with red-eye flights is that the lights go off, the crew disappears and everyone tries desperately to get some sleep. Not so with these guys - lights on and crew regularly pushing the drinks cart down the aisle. And a lack of free snacks as well (not even pretzels??)."
Pros: "The price was outstanding. The entertainment was excellent. Staff very friendly"
Cons: "Food was really bad. I mean we left France and that's the good capital of the world, but none of it made into the plane."
Pros: "Seatroom"
Cons: "The 6 1/2 hour flight from Montréal CANADA to San Francisco, CA USA, is considered a "shared border flight," which means 1) you pay $25 for your first checked bag, $35 for the next, and $100 for subsequent bags. The food is horrible and the type you'd expect on a puddle jumper from NY to Boston. Clearly Air Canada executives are aware that Canada and the US are separate countries. This is just an attempt to gouge the consumer. Unfortunately Air Canada is the only Airline I can fly out of Montreal so I'm stuck with them. : ("
Cons: "Delays on delays"
Pros: "Because of the snow storm in Canada, there were delay. Air Canada improved a lot since the last time I travelled with them maybe 3 years ago. They are nice and want to help us. Since there were a delay at MCO, I had less time to catch my flight at Montréal. Everyone was helping. They look at us and smile. We don't seem to disturb them like before. There were an exeption with the woman at the Air Canada desk (MCO)for the luggage and at boarding who was annoying by my question and demand. She was the only one like that. Other passenger also notice it Everything went well also when I travel on my way to Orlando Nov 30."
Pros: "The guy who gave me the boarding pass was very nice and helpful"
Pros: "At the boarding desk staff were not giving satisfactory responses on delayed flight. Our flight was late by 90 minutes. No proper reply from person at boarding gate.."
Cons: "Behavior of the staff at desk"
Cons: "There was no food served during the flight. Did not like that."
Pros: "The sag wagon ride, all be it short as the major length of walk not available to assistance.la"
Cons: "Lay out design of terminal, nearly missed initial flight to Copenhagen from Toronto- due to no assistance to navigate through terminal, needed ride but only wheel chair available, but not in time to catch flight. Toronto to MKE- The 5 gate changes, and watching 2 previous flights 40 minutes late with multiple gate changes, plane with flat tire and gasoline leak, not confidence building. Plane very small,tightly seated in back row without ability to recline, directly across from bathroom in which the door kept flying open and a women emerged to state some issue with toilet."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased"
Cons: "Small plane. Poor service. rough landing"
Pros: "Less than 2 hours. The plane was a very quiet and smooth ride. It was NOT the plane we were scheduled to be on. Problem was not with the actual plane. It was a baggage problem. See below."
Cons: "When we checked our baggage in Washington, D.C., we were told we would not see our bags until we arrived in Hiroshima. That turned out to be misinformation. When we arrived in Tokyo, we were told we would have to pick up our bags at baggage claim and take them to our connecting flight area. We only had 1 3/4 hours between flights and it took us over an hour just to get our bags. By the time we got our bags and got to the drop off point for the connecting flight, it was way past the time when they stopped accepting bags for the connecting flight. This caused us a lot of stress. We are not seasoned travelers, we were traveling in a foreign country with a language we are unfamiliar with, and are elderly. We got into 2 wrong lines before a fellow traveler with the same situation helped us. She spoke Japanese and was able to put us in contact with someone who could help us. We were fortunate to get a flight an hour later to our final destination. Now we worry about the return trip having a similar problem."
Pros: "Crew was fairly friendly and a little hands off. Food was the best I've had flying abroad thus far. Seats were okay. Was in economy so I can't expect too much but I would love if there was a little more room especially for people stuck in middle seats. Seats were fairly comfortable. There was a lot more leg room than I have before which made the 10+hr flight better!"
Cons: "Boarding didn't go well for me as I almost missed my flight due to delays (but that didn't make me feel upset towards Air Canada, just bad circumstances that I had to be honest about). Crew was fairly friendly - a little hands off (which is good) but I wasn't wowed by them. Wasn't a lot of movie options. I realize you can't get a TON but a few more current movies would have been nice."
Cons: "It was canceled"
Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "TV didn't work Not snack or snack/food options even asked Got offered a drink much too late in the flight"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the plane. It had comfortable seats and was very roomy. There was complimentary dinner and breakfast service, both of which were delicious."
Cons: "About 80% of my flight consisted of noisy Spanish high-school erst returning from some trip in Canada. They were loud and obnoxious and ruin the peace on the plane. This was an overnight flight and they ruined any chances of falling asleep. The problem came from the fact that the flight attendants could keep them under control. They, in turn, got annoyed and gave generally subpar and unpleasant service."
Pros: "there was in flight entertainment, had power outlets, and usb ports in each head rest"
Cons: "snack option was lackluster"
Pros: "Nothing, this was the worst flight ever. Delays, no communication, lacked proper updates, ground time,.."
Cons: "Everything, the plane left late. So my bags got lost. The person loading the bags, which I could see from my window, moved at an incredible slow pace and seemed like it took an hour till he was done loading the bags"
Cons: "Terrible Air Canada ground service in Beijing Airport. Very slow service cause I missed the fly. Very bad attitude when I asked to change fly time."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating."
Cons: "There could have been a bit more on the entertainment selection side."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was bad. Flight were late and service was really bad. I will never fly Air Canada again!"
Pros: "arrived 15 early crew was very efficient & nice"
Cons: "plane was older 767-300 older version still comfortable but lot less then the newer airbus 330 on my yvr to yul"
Pros: "Arrival and departure on time."
Cons: "Prefered seating promised more leg room. However I paid 63 dollar extra for same type of economy seat. Long lines to drop bags at airport, even after checking online, paying for bags, and printing bag tags. Check in seemed disorganized. I had TSA prechecked on arrival, but still needed to wait in very long lines upon departure."
Cons: "The seating was tight."
Cons: "Delays!"
Cons: "The woman at ticket counter was rude and not helpful"
Pros: "Excellent sleeper seat in business class. Good food. Good service. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "no suggestions"
Pros: "Pilot kept us well informed."
Cons: "Even though ground service was servicing the front of the plane, they were unable to service the rear of the aircraft for another hour. Don’t they know that every plane has a front AND a back. When we arrived at RDU, AA did not have someone available for nearly 20 min to get someone to us deplane"
Cons: "Wine ran out at the first meal - they only had 5 red and 5 white for the whole plane for a 13 hour flight. No hard alcohol at all so I couldn’t have my G&T to help with sleep. The food was definitely not anything special - the chicken and potatoes was potatoes with sauce and one nibble of chicken."
Pros: "very Good service"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous, efficient and spoke good English."
Cons: "Could use a bit more leg room for taller passengers (I'm 6ft)."
Pros: "Helpful staff both on ground and in the air"
Cons: "- The plane supposedly has free wifi :) :) :) but this is too good to be true. After a long and complicated procedure “all free wifi passes are gone, try again next time”. Someone said there are only 70 passes for the entire plane. - Similar experience with “free wifi” Guangzhou’s Bayun airport if you don’t have a Chinese simcard in your phone. - Navigating China Southern’s website for online check-in is a nightmare."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly and on time and efficiently."
Cons: "There were things that got lost in translation with the crew, but they really did try their best."
Cons: "Flight attendants allow passengers to use their phones during the flight to play games and watch movies without headphones at very loud volume levels"
Pros: "The plane was clean and the boarding process was very smooth. The crew was professional. The selection of movies was outstanding."
Cons: "There was not as much legroom as I would have liked. We had Asian Veg meals which were a little bit too much the same each time."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late on departure"
Pros: "Excellent caring crew."
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection"
Pros: "Finally left the airy"
Cons: "Had to stay in the airport 24 hrs.."
Pros: "Food was ok.."
Cons: "Lost my luggage.. acted like it’s not a big deal.. don’t care.."
Pros: "movies"
Cons: "no directions to the hotel during our layover. No English spoken at the hotel! Very confusing."
Cons: "Guangzhou airport transfer was uncomfortable expensive and won’t be traveling via this airport again"
Cons: "I couldnt order Hindu meal and when I asked for a chicken dish, I was served pork with it."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was a horrible flight for me will never travel again with you guys"
Pros: "Ontime departure"
Cons: "Nothing special. Entertainment system was intermittently working requiring reveal reboot. Food just average or perhaps slightly below. Customer service was fair but not to the caliber of other Asian airlines (e.g., Cathay Pacific)"
Pros: "Never flown this airline or even come to this part of the world before this trip so had no expectations. But the flight crew was super helpful, courteous, food was good, and flight was pleasant with good entertainment."
Cons: "They didn’t have sparkling water!"
Pros: "Hospitality was good except food. For long route frequent snacks suggested which was missing."
Cons: "Food, beverage, water, liquor supply and bumpy ride."
Pros: "The aircraft was new and very well kept. The crew was very attentive and highly professional. Will fly them again!"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic on all flights. The Premium passenger was supposed to be separated and was not."
Pros: "Everything went well except for my comments to the right."
Cons: "Check in in person . The lady that issues boarding passes. She never smiled and I was scared to ask her anything. She sure did not volunteer any info concerning our flight from Chengdu to LAX via CAN. Never asked if we preferred isle or window seats. I remember her and will avoid her next time."
Pros: "flights were on time though luggage my be delayed, itwas handled very well."
Cons: "wish the food would be more consistent. the beef w/ rice and pork with rice delicious, but the beef with mash potato, fish with rice or fried noodles with beef wasn't good at all and they happened to be on the international flights."
Pros: "It was on time even thought there was a storm."
Cons: "Ok I really don't understand this. I'm from Guangzhou and CAN is home airport and China Southern Airline is pretty much my hometown airline. So basically CAN is their hub and they should have certain privileges at CAN. But every time I went to CAN to take a China Southern airline I had to take a shuttle to board the flight. Even for a huge flight like 787 you still have to take the shuttle to board. Can't they request a gate for big air crafts like this? And then the food is really bad. If you don't have to land in CAN, I would consider flying to HKG instead with Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "4 hour delay without sufficient reason, Uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "Plane delayed due to weather conditions. This seemed unnecessary as when we did fly the weather was fine. Meant I missed a connection and was put up in a three star hotel for 24 hours. Also had delay and the previous flight. Unimpressed."
Cons: "Small plane so not very comfortable."
Pros: "Airplanes are new"
Cons: "No amenities"
Pros: "Very nice people"
Cons: "Would like Chinese food"
Cons: "After a horrific experience getting to GZ, my connection flight to Beijing was almost worse. 45 minutes before landing, I was forced to stow my screen (in the name of safety) which is ridiculous, then after going to restroom, the flight attendant came into the restroom to tell me to go back to my seat, as it is not allowed to leave your seat with 30 minutes remaining in the flight. I have never had a flight attendant force herself into a bathroom and invade someone's privacy. It was beyond rude and inappropriate. The lead flight attendant apologized, but it was well after the incident. I will never ever fly China Southern again."
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "unappetizing meals"
Pros: "KLMs overall attention to detail from hot towels to regular water or juice to prevent degradation. Welcoming friendly cabin attendants."
Pros: "comfortable seat in economy comfort section friendly crew"
Cons: "We left late and arrived late and waited a long time to disembark, down the stairs, and into an extremely crowded (standing room only) bus that must have driven us for 10 minutes or more before we reached the terminal. Fortunately I had one of the small number of seats on the bus but I felt very sorry for all the people who had to stand."
Pros: "- The attractive fare - Good leg room"
Cons: "- The mediocre boarding procedure with poor match between airport screen info and actual boarding status - Poor food - Absence of EN subtitles for almost all movies - Can't rest my head (seat not high enough) - Limited facilities at international section of Beijing airport"
Pros: "The crew was perfectly attentive. I hope to fly with you all again!!"
Pros: "I have flown a lot of Chinese airlines because I live in Beijing, and they are the best! I had a 9-hour layover and expected to sleep in the airport overnight. However, they provided a free hotel! I really appreciated it and they did it without asking. Also they spoke English and were very polite and nice. In my opinion, Chinese airlines are usually terrible and the staff usually has terrible English, but China Southern was amazing!"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "I was traveling business, the crew were so helpful, it's 1 to 1 individual service. The seats were so comfortable and lots of room. Food is fantastic, lounge is very good, good food and drinks. Their price is quite reasonable, makes this trip worth every cent of it! Love it and I will travel with them in future."
Pros: "Nice flight!"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Our flight was great. Seating was spacious. The crew was very attentive and friendly. The food was actually good. When our return flight arrived late in Guangzhou because of a delay there was an attendant to greet us and made sure we made it to our connecting flight. Would definitely use this airline again."
Pros: "Very good for this flight. i will be use this service by next time. and thank you very much for KAYAK ."
Pros: "Lots of kiddie and action movies (but very few interesting ones!)"
Cons: "NO leg room! Extremely cramped and uncomfortable. Had less than an inch between my knee and seat in front. Very hard to get in and out of seat. Terrible tasteless food. Wine served in tiny cups (two oz?) and ran out after the first serving. China Southern is also impossible to reach--they don't answer phones, there's no website that I could find. So seat assignments were made at airport, and each time we got seats right next to bathroom with loud flushing sounds all night long. Terrible excuse for an airline."
Pros: "Smooth checkin, timely flights, young and courteous staff."
Cons: "Can't say I didn't like something."
Cons: "The food selection could use a change with more fresh ingredients. We were offered two hot dishes but both were almost exactly the same. It would have been nice to have the lunch portion be or dinner portion be different."
Pros: "1. The food was actually very tasty 2. The crew was nice for the most part 3. The price I paid was decent $496 for one way from Manila to SF"
Cons: "1. The seats were too close together and not comfortable. The arm rests were too short and my elbows kept pushing the overhead light on. 2. The audio jacks was broken so I had to jiggle the headphones in the socket to get the audio to work and even then it wasn't good so I just gave up on watching a movie 3. They don't allow use of cell phones even in airplane mode"
Pros: "Arrived on time ."
Cons: "No western food selection"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "On Sep 14th, I paid on your websites with the confirmation of three airline tickets from Chengdu China to Los Angeles. All the information I provide for each passengers are correct. However, due to the fact that you missed up three of the passengers information, they couldn't check in yesterday. The whole fight to LA was missed. As a result, we had to pay very high price to buy new tickets for the next available fight in order to complete the trip. I'v made four phone calls with your agent, with all records made. 1) The 1st agent confirmed that the information I provided were all correct for each passengers. So she believed there was nothing wrong and did nothing to help. 2) The 2nd agent realized the information were mixed up. But it was too late to let them check in. 3) The 3rd agent confirmed that the issue were caused by your system. He said only the supervisor could deal with this matter. He gave me a number which is not valid. 4) Finally, the 4th agent said you would contact me. No response by now. Still waiting for the response. Very disappointed after all."
Cons: "My flight had a 16 hour layover in Dalian and it didn't say anywhere before hand that Dalian airport closes at night. I had to sleep outside of the airport."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no indication of which terminal to check in, flight was delayed, both cabin and ground crew (and chengdu airport staff) hardly spoke English."
Pros: "The flight delayed over 2 hours and there is no faculties to help my transferring. No one took care of my hospitality"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the planes on both legs of my journey. Extremely modern, clean, and comfortable. The service was also exceptional. Personal whole being extremely efficient. Thank you to all the cabin crew."
Cons: "The food on my flight was not the best. The appetizer and desert was great. The vegetables on the side were at best edible. But my main dish of beef filet was difficult to eat. The red wine was terrible but the white whine and sparking wine were decent."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything was low rate budget"
Pros: "Amazing crew for such a long flight. Nice to get fed too."
Cons: "On line check in could have been simpler"
Pros: "Crews are good. The seat has more room for leg."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and fairly comfortable with adequate legroom for avg height people, though tray and screen placement can be improved on."
Cons: "PVG airport gates could deal with more seating, at least double... and better handling of delays."
Pros: "Loads of space. Super crew,"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect."
Pros: "The only positive thing to say is that the flight was on time."
Cons: "* Failure at communication: At check-in we were told that they cannot route the luggage to the final destination (Shanghai). We will have to fetch the luggage from the luggage belt and check it in again at Chengdu airport from scratch. Also it was not possible to get the boarding pass for this flight online and select seats. This was brand new information for us. Nor China Southern, nor KLM nor Kayak did inform us about this at anytime. This never happened to us and if we knew in advance we would not have booked this connection (one in Amsterdam and one in Chengdu). Passengers need to be informed about this! Some people mentioned this is Chinese state policy, still not sure about this though. * Horrible transfer experience: In summary we were on ourselves, information was absent or just plain wrong by the ground staff at Chengdu airport. Which resultet in us queuing in 3 different lanes. Even in the first lane we queued, following official signs for transfer, the first staff told us we can queue here but then the lady at the counter (after 30min queueing) told us to go somewhere else instead. We had to wait in the rain to take a shuttle bus to another terminal. There we then queued at a China Southern counter, but it turned out to be incompatible with our ticket (booked with China Southern but operated by China Eastern - not communicated to us). Hence we queued yet again at a China Eastern counter which was eventually the correct one. Common to all this was the negative attitude of all staff which basically didn't care at all and were just incompetent. Note that this was not a language issue, as one of us is fluent in Chinese. * Once boarded the plane, which was 25% full, we were even disallowed to change seats due to "weight balance issue" (which seems to be just a joke given the weight of the airplane itself...). Note that the check-in agent explicitely told that because the plane is half-full we can just freely select an empty seat - yet another false information. * Conclusion: 1. Transparent information is they key for making a booking decision. 2. Do not fly via Chengdu airport. This will just ruin your trip. This airport is not ready to serve as international transfer spot."
Pros: "I like that china eastern upgraded their planes and they have individual entertainment in each seat. I like that the plane is newer and clean and nice crew"
Cons: "The food is gross and needs to be freshened up but i like that they do feed you a lot"
Cons: "almost no recline for a 15h flight! could not lift side arm rest."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The food were not fresh and ill prepared"
Pros: "I was hesitant at first to book through a 3rd party website, there were a lot of variables for me. I’m the kind of person who loves the security of knowing that my plans are concrete. I read so many horror stories of random cancellations and other headaches. As long as you know your dates are set in stone and you don’t have to adjust anything (I had no changes) then I think you’ll be perfectly fine! :)"
Cons: "While everything worked out perfectly for me the only draw back for me was just airline logistics, because I purchased through a 3rd party vendor I was unable to check in early. I love having the security of checking in early to avoid the lines and stress at the airport but everything worked out great. I was even able to select which seats I wanted prior to my trip."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did tell the lady in the boarding area in la that we have limited time to cacht the other conection fly to phuket from chengdu. She ignore us and say we have enough time. Of course we miss the fly because a delay in migration in China. And this was a ticket of the same Airline. No one help us and even speak english. We were stuck in china for 24 hours and the staff in the airport threat us like homeless. It was worst The experiencie of my life"
Pros: "The service was great. Seats barrable."
Cons: "May have gotten sick from the water or food served."
Pros: "Flat Bed is so so OK."
Cons: "Not convenient for Couples Travelling. Seats are far apart in the middle. I could not even make conversation with my spouse. Ridiculous seating plan. In the future I would avoid this Airline. CHINA EASTERN web site is horrible."
Cons: "This ridiculous airline and it's rude, obnoxious staff in Chengdu made a mockery of my friend and I (two 21 year old American girls traveling alone). We had booked round trip tickets back in October 2017 that included a 1 hour layover in Chengdu first, then a 7 hour layover in Shanghai on our way to Bangkok for a trip in Thailand. That was fine with us. Then all of a sudden it changed to a 6 hour layover in Chengdu then an 18 HOUR layover in Shanghai. We decided to deal with it and get a hotel room in Shanghai, no big deal. After a great trip in Thailand and leaving fine from Bangkok to our first layover in Chengdu, that is where the nightmare started. First off, going through Chengdu customs, I don't know if it is because Americans do not travel through there a lot, but the officers pulled us aside and were passing around our American passports around their staff, taking pictures of them with Iphones before handing us "in-transit" paperwork to fill out. As weird as that was, no one really seemed to speak english and we just wanted to get away from them and get through. When we went to the check in counter, they handed me a boarding pass for our flight at 1:50 that afternoon, but then proceeded to tell my friend that she wasn't on a flight until the next morning at 7 am out of Chengdu and our original connecting flight out of Shanghai at 11:50 the next morning was now at 8 pm for her. What could have been simply fixed like it WAS after calling priceline and our travel agent, the staff at the ticket counter and a representative over the phone made our lives living hell. They barely spoke english and the ones that did were very rude to us, saying that they couldn't help us and put us on the phone with China Eastern. FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF we were on the phone with a representative who was talking us in circles, telling us that there were no available seats on the 1:50 and that he could get her on the next 3:45 out of Chengdu, then put us on hold to come back and say he couldn't only change 1 domestic flight in China, but would have to cancel her flight to NY. When offering to pay to just DO IT and get out of china, he said that if he were to cancel it and take our credit card info, it "may or may not go through" and if it didn't she would be stuck with no flights. When asked how that made any sense, he proceeds to say" Because miss, our system sucks," and other rude things like "Why can't you just keep your flight and meet your friend in NY." then him along with a rude ticket counter guy say that he could help us if we took 5,000 yuan out of the bank and paid them cash. TRYING TO SCAM US. After all this drama a simple call to priceline was able to fix the problem no payment involved, and there WERE available seats on all the flights and a domestic flight could be changed. LYING, SCAMMING, RUDE, individuals. Definitely worth a little more money to take any other airline BUT THIS ONE."
Pros: "Airline personnel very helpful. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Finding China Eastern in very large terminal. Almost no signs in English."
Pros: "Food service flight attendant was great they smile and polite"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "There was no soap in the restroom the whole flight."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 12 hours. They kept the passengers in a terminal that was partially open to outdoors, and this was in the middle of winter and it was only 35° F. In fact the reason for the delay was because of weather. When asked about a Plan B, they talked in circles and gave us no real answers. Every hour they said wait another hour and this went on for 12 hours. Had they just cancelled the flight early on and made other arrangements, passengers could have gotten out of the cold and gotten food for themselves. When told that people were hungry and freezing, instead of moving to an indoor heated terminal, they simply brought down airplane blankets which did little, and a case of water bottles and airplane food to which they only passed out to the Chinese passengers and when any nonChinese passengers went to get food or water, there were turned away. I truly have never experienced anything in my life like this. It borderlined on inhumane. Worst experience of my life. Do not ever fly China Eastern."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "Seats are too uncomfortable. For a long flight they should have better seating for economy. They’re expensive enough to deserve comfortable seating."
Pros: "the pleasantries"
Cons: "the unpleasantries"
Cons: "The staff was not helpful and unfriendly. Food was horrible and no options. We payed for extra leg space and it turned out it was not the case and we had no option in flight to buy space , furthermore would had cost 2 time more then any other airline. Entertainment was mediocre. Very high fees to change a flight. We will not fly with this company again, and do not recommend unless stress is what you looking for."
Pros: "Complimentary in flight wifi"
Cons: "Couldn’t use iPhones... even on airplane mode"
Pros: "Nothing. Too many screaming children"
Cons: "That we boarded late and took off late and were not given a reason why. Crew at Frankfurt were rude and although I was allowed to have 2 bags each weighing 23 kg, I had to pay 110 euros for 1 bag weighing 29."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I asked if I could have a aisle or window seat and was told there was nothing available at the counter, however there were plenty of seats available on the plane."
Pros: "Nothing about this experience was acceptable nevermind enjoyable."
Cons: "Due to some strangely worded "regulations" regarding layovers in China I was barred entry to my flight. China Eastern made no effort in helping me; essentially pointing the finger at the online booking agent (Kayak/Justfly) who in turn, pointed their fingers back at the airline. All parties refused to process my ticket OR refund my cost. Eventually I bought an additional ticket directly to the city of the final leg of my itinerary so as to avoid the visa restrictions on multi-city layovers. Only to find that China Eastern would NOT honor the ticket from Kunming to Vancouver as I had not been on the first two legs. Again, no solution was offered and no refund provided from China Eastern, Kayak or Justfly."
Pros: "The people were friendly and helpful. They genuinely wanted me to feel comfortable. This gets a double thumbs up from me!!!"
Cons: "There were no problems with anything. I would gladly take this flight a bunch more times."
Cons: "My luggage along with a couple dozen other passengers' luggage, was lost."
Cons: "The plane has delayed"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Pleasant trip for the most part, friendly crew, easy boarding"
Cons: "Can't use phone, headphones provided don't fit entertainment systems on seat backs, so no way to watch"
Cons: "the flight was delayed and when we had a layover, it was really rush. there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no heat in the gate area so we were freezing and could not get food. Food on the plane was horrific. We had a stop where we were not supposed to get of the plan, but we had to get off and go through customs. I would not recommend China eastern to anyone."
Pros: "The flight was fine - the crew were very attentive and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "There was an employee of China Eastern at the gate to the plane taking people's water and telling them that they could not bring water on the flight. There is no way that is legit or ok, especially when water is sometimes hard to come by because staff members are busy and only give you a small amount each time they come around."
Pros: "service and crew were fine"
Cons: "Flight was a mess, boarding process a mess, we departed late and arrived late, no one gave an status update to the customers, I didn't like this experience"
Cons: "Awful flight, this domestic flight must be one of the worst you can take in China, won't do it again, seriously uncomfortable, awful food, crew in bad mood, no entertainment, no flight status update, seriously I hated this flight;"
Pros: "That I wouldn't have to pay for luggage to Manila,but never happened"
Cons: "The fact that I was not allowed to board plane,that ticket was sold to me with airline knowing an American can not have a layover of more than 24 hrs, that my son whom I never got to see be born had to be without his dad longer now and that airline would not give waiver voucher so that I'd be allowed full refund...both staff at airport n corporate have no communication with each other...corporate said because I'm an American citizen I'm allowed to pass threw but airport said corporate was wrong"
Cons: "Flight was due to take off in the morning- about 9am. There was not notice given that it was canceled until 2pm. I received a notice after the flight had presumably taken off. We were able to rebook on a Dragonair flight leaving at 11:00."
Cons: "Just the passengers continuing on to Hangzhou were told to wait on the plane. Then after all the other passengers left, we were told to get off as well. Then we were told to stand and wait for at least 20 minutes, then routed through the airport to join the first group of passengers on the plane to go through immigration, where one of the immigration officers was yelling out us. Then we had to wait at least another 20 minutes before we were led to the check-in counter where we each person needed to get new boarding passes. This process took at least a half hour. Then we had to re-enter the regular security line to reboard our flight. When we landed in Hangzhou, this process was essentially repeated, except that this time we collected our checked bags and went through customs before having to go to the check-in counter, again, get a new boarding pass, again, and then go through regular security to continue the remaining leg of my flight. I've never seen such an inefficient transit procedure in my life!"
Pros: "Attentive stagf, but less attentive than previous flight."
Cons: "1. Couldnt use mobile phone for reading only (mobile phones had to be completely switched off). I wont be flying China Eastern because of this rule. 2. Business class seats where not good (poor adjustment, too far from TV, no window accesible without getting out of seat) 3. Boarding and unboarding on tarmac was inconvenient. 4. Movie selection not up to date"
Pros: "I actually missed my flight one whole day but airline charged me only 100$ for another ticket."
Cons: "Long."
Pros: "corteous, helpful"
Cons: "Obliged me to buy a whole new return ticket when checking in for reasons beyond my control"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had recheck my bags for the same airline in Chengdu"
Pros: "The airplane was new and the seating was spacious in economy class"
Cons: "It is a common theme with Chinese companies. They spend millions on big items and then totally ignore the customer front end. Go into any big shopping center in China and you'll get lost because the signs are not there or not clear enough, elevators are too few and too slow, things are just illogical. Same thing with China Eastern. I have been flying them for over a decade and the company still hasn't managed to invest a fraction of the money the assets cost into customer front end. The online checkin was not possible. The checkin in Frankfurt was almost 2 hours because not enough counters were open. The food in flight was what you think bad airline food is supposed to taste like. The layover in PVG was brief but the transfer was disorganized.. So if you want an efficient flight without any creature comforts and extras for an attractive price I can recommend China Eastern. For anything else look elsewhere..."
Cons: "The customer service relations at the front desk to check in word is awful and unfriendly the flight was uncomfortable the entertainment controller does not work 90% of the time it was just a bad experience flying with you in general"
Pros: "Flight from Chicago to Shangai was delayed four hours. Didn't make connecting flight. Had to take a cab from Shanghai to Ningbo and never completed our flight. The next plane was not due in until 24 hours after we landed. China Eastern did not take care of a hotel stay, dinner vouchers or rental car even though it was their fault that we missed our connection."
Pros: "Only thing to like was that i got 3 seats all to myself.. few nice cabin crew out of the many"
Cons: "Food - small portion, taste was horrible no entertainment (only a common screen for few rows that played a chinese movie) seats were uncomfortable, was rock hard boarding was delayed and no information was given regarding that"
Pros: "Flight was right on schedule. Crew was friendly and helpful. Snack was tasty."
Cons: "Could have used a bit more legroom."
