They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"

Pros: "Good service. Nice crew."
Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "The seating was uncomfortable. The flight crew was was rude and were constantly rushing everything. I saw them yank the headphones out of a sleeping mans ears as we prepared for landing 45 minutes early. They didn’t even attempt to wake him."
Cons: "The crew’s English was awful; this making this Cartier a bad choice for non-Mandarin speaking travelers. The power port is throttled at 20W, make my sleep therapy machine inoperablere so I got no sleep on a 12 hour flight. Food was mediocre at best. Never flying China Eastern again."

Pros: "Efficacy boarding, good entertainment"

Cons: "Seats were too crampped."

Cons: "I did not like riding the bus to my airplane on the tarmac."
Pros: "On time performance that is really not a given on any flight from PRC"
Cons: "Ear pieces given only after "reaching altitude. Movie choices censored - no blockbusters (Ma Ma Mia was featured as a new release). Food rather of lousy quality with rice and pork as well as thick noodles with some thick oyster sauce and five rather tiny shrimps. Cold bun and frozen chunk of butter to start on the salad (again some shrimps with glass noodles) and four tiny pieces of watermelon. Red wine served but no white. They were quickly running through the isles with duty free but no one knew what they were selling as no catalogue in seat pocket. Qualified as a good domestic flight - not really of international standard with dirty toilets after an hour of flight time"
Pros: "Boarding was very easy. The flight was on time, and the crew was very attentive and friendly. The food was good. Plenty of entertainment to keep me busy on the 12 hours flight. I was very surprised considering how low the price of the ticket was."
Cons: "Very limited English speaking programs/movies"
Cons: "Turbulent flight"
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."
Cons: "My issue is not actually China eastern but Kayak! I received messages saying to check in in Taipei at Terminal 1. Well China Eastern is actually in terminal 2! And these mega airports in Asia getting from 1 terminal to another when you don’t speak the language can add an hour! If the flight wasn’t an hour late I would have missed it because of the messages. I have saved those and will be contacting Kayak for some type of reasonable compensation for this terrible error on their part. No message at all would be much better than a message sending me to the wrong place!"
Pros: "Will not flight this airline again"
Cons: "Poor service from a to z"
Pros: "Amazing service by the in flight staff! Snack and drinks non stop and so friendly."
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."
Pros: "Everything was smooth."
Cons: "Custom sucks in China, slow and not efficient."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "There was no soap in the restroom the whole flight."
Pros: "The free cup of water"
Cons: "Welcome aboard Dictator Airlines... NO I WILL NOT SHUT MY WINDOW COVER"
Pros: "The boarding process was organized."
Cons: "Delayed flight, massively delayed flight. We got in to VN +2 hours later, normally not bad, but when you're talking about 3:20A there is going to be grouchiness."
Cons: "The ground staff at ICN is not polite. We asked them whether we can load more bag before we headed to downtown to go shopping. After we came back to get the boarding pass, we were refused to check more bag under our baggage allowance"
Pros: "Really all was very good, especially their only making necessary announcements but no droning on and on about this and that that often happens on American Carrier"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Professional and quick boarding"
Pros: "Service was prompt and polite. The personnel were great!"
Cons: "Im not sure if it's China Eastern policy, fleet-wide, but cell phone use was not allowed the entire flight, even with the phone switched to airplane mode. This, and the fact that seats did not contain flight entertainment systems, meant that I couldn't watch any movies."
Cons: "唯一遗憾的是我们不得不在飞机上等待一个多小时，因为没有停机位。还好乘务员服务良好，减轻了我们的抱怨和焦虑。 以后还会选择东航。谢谢。"
Pros: "Great price with decent service."
Cons: "Overall no complains."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. Not super friendly, but polite. And they gave me a vegetarian meal, which I really appreciated"
Cons: "They were VERY street about no cell phones or laptops even though I was on airplane mode. Plus, they even advertised wifi for the flight. On a 12 hour flight, I was mildly annoyed."
Pros: "The bathrooms were clean"
Cons: "First, our flight to Bali was canceled, there was a scam delaying and delaying the flight so that no one was offered vouchers. But the gate told us it was definitely canceled even though it was never officially canceled. We flew to Manila instead. They botched our return ticked accidentally booking us home on a flight 3 days later. We were on hold 45 minutes but no one answered when we tried to call so we had to wait at the airport to talk to someone - of course their convenient hours are 2AM - 10AM. When we finally did get a flight, the food was awful, the "vegetarian option" was inedible. The thimble of wine was mean considering there is no alcohol in flight. The snack was a tiny package containing 8 tasteless peanuts. We were reprimanded for getting more water. TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Yes the crew was nice, but they seemed to rush around as if there is some sort of emergencies, all the time. They maybe too eager but gave the impression of not calm, sort of made me nervous. The butter came with the dinner rolls are not salted, no taste, very plain. Also they don't have pepper, when I asked for pepper to season my food, there was none. It was like this both ways from LAX to PVG and back."
Pros: "Very helpful flight attendant (should have asked her name) Healthy food"
Pros: "Cabin service was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was quite poor."
Pros: "Seats ok Crew was good"
Cons: "No headphones for ife Food horrible"
Pros: "They fed us all the time and the entertainment was great"
Cons: "The seats felt really hard after a while and it was difficult to sleep. I somehow was assigned to a middle seat even though I get really bad urinary tract infections and have to get up all the time to use the bathroom."
Pros: "For the price of the flight I believe this was an excellent airline to choose. I your on a budget this is great. Cant really complain~ Food was good and the crew was pretty nice. I fell asleep for about an hour but the flight was pretty smooth overall."
Cons: "The plane was pretty small with no entertainment and boarding took a while but its understandable that we took a smaller plane for this flight since osaka and shanghai are only 2hrs apart."
Cons: "The staff are incredibly rude. I was not given any food to eat because I was a vegetarian. The staff told me , " so dont eat"! The entertainment was lousy. I will never fly with this airline again!"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "They ask us ro switch off mobile despite it can be placed on airplane mode ! Interestingly they are fine with ipads."
Pros: "First all, the flight changed to stop at PVG, not Nanjing. When it depatured from PVG to Taipei, inside the airplane was so hot. We talked to flight attences 2 times, still didn't be adjusted. And food was terrible, too. They provided food too late, then they rushed out to clean the food trates. There is no enough time to eat! The experience was so bad with them."
Cons: "Small space in economy"
Pros: "New planes."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight from Taiwan to Shanghai to catch my flight to LA. AT CHINA Estern counter, they will not chech my luggage all the way to LA. I had to pick up my luggage going out the terminal then go to check in again. I am 82 years old. This is not easy and stressful to me. I asked the supervisor that he could not do any thing. My connecting flight ticket was also from CHINA EASTER AIRLINES. They say the connecting flight was not on the same ticket. However it is from the same airline. I made my flight with great effort. I had hard time to speak to the agent in checking in my flight to LA. THIS IS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED WHEN I PURCHASED THE TICKET. IF I KNEW, I WILL RECONSIDER TO PURCHASE THE TICKET. DO REQUEST YOU RECOGNIZED THE STRESS AND INCONVENIENT YOU PUT YOUR PASSENGER THRU."
Pros: "The crew was very nice.The food was tasty. Water was offered constantly. With a long haul trip like the one we took, it was a welcome relief. The planes are older but fine. Lots of movie choices in English and with subtitles. I encourage watching some of the Chinese action movies. The are fun. I would fly with them again. Someone had a terrible review of Shanghai airport. There is an actual TON of stuff to do. The food we had was good for airport food, not Cat Cora, but not bad either. I had no issue accessing the WiFi or facebook. We also had no problem taking calls through the WiFi service WhatsAp.. I guess life is still what you make of it. Safe travels friends"
Pros: "I flew Qantas, and it was quick and easy."
Cons: "It took us more than 18 hours to actually land on Wuhan"
Pros: "Price, leg space"
Cons: "Crew is cold and business like, no warmth. Could have had more entertainment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "You can't check in online and you don't have seats until you check in at the airport. The check-in process was unorganized and ended up being a nightmare. The food was horrible...pretty much rice and fish which ended up smelling up the entire plane."
Pros: "There was nothing about the flight I liked."
Cons: "1. 1+ hour delay and no quick announcement regarding it. When the announcement was made, no time detail with regards to possible wait time of delayed boarding time. 2. Many folks went to China Eastern information to ask questions, the staff was unattentive and rude (would say 'I don't know' and then turn their attention to their phones). 3. No slippers to wear for such a long flight. Eva Air offers slippers and blankets even to their economy class passengers. 4. Could not bring water on to the plane even after having gone through security. No other airlines I traveled with during my entire trip had that policy: Eva Air, Korean Air, Peach, Scoot. 5. When another passenger buzzed a flight attendant, she came and responder with "what do you need?" instead of "How can I help you?" 6. Granted there was some turbulence during thr flight..but the ENTIRE time, seat-belt buckle sign was on...from Shanghai to LAX. That is one LONG flight. People need to get up and stretch their legs. Have no clue if it was bc they just didn't want to deal with the passengers or making announcements or switching on and off the seat-belt sign...but it was on the ENTIRE flight. Overall, terrible. Will not be flying China Eastern again."
