Kayak, the Singapore airline website and the checkin desk did not inform us of the requirements for entry to Singapore. This caused lost time as well as frustration
Bangkok airport needs a redesign to make it more accommodating for passengers with long layovers between flights. It needs a better selection of restaurants, stores and rest rooms near the departure gates. It also needs a shuttle or other transport system to help passengers transit the long distances between gates in different concourses.
Sandwich could be better :)
Helpful staff. Leg too could be better. Food was okay.
Excellent service. Clean aircraft. Took off and landed on time. Did not feel it was an 18 hour flight. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again.
My seat did not lean back. It was so uncomfortable. This needs to be checked prior to flight especially very long one.
Singapore airlines has resumed after Covid selling premium services but not opened lounges to cater for the demand you cannot get a seat in their lounges and social distancing is non existent. I wouldn't pay for services you don't get so be aware.
I love everything about Singapore airlines excepted fact that you cannot reach a person to speak with anything with on the phone that is the only reason I may not use a Singapore Airlines again I tried many times to call someone and cannot speak to a person about some specific problems that I need to speak with an individual about
I have guitar when I fly, they don’t allow to take the guitar with you on board even the bins was empty

Pros: "check-in, priority lane, BKK-SKL, boarding, crew, cabin, disembark, baggage claim to cab home"
Cons: "baby crying throughout the flight"
Cons: "I Booked a flight that stated that it only had one stop in singapore, then direct to SFO after arriving in singapore i was told that i had to go to a transfer counter, that there was a problem with my ticket. after arriving at the transfer counter they took my boarding pass for my dircet flight to SFO, & told me that i now had a stop in hong kong, that the direct flight to SFO was over booked!! this is not right i wouldn't of booked this flight if they had been truthfull about the extra stop. i will never use singapore airline or kayak again!!!"

Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."
Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."
Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "the first class seats from HK to SFO, IFE, service, dom perignon, red wine, excellent attention, greeted personally by four of flight team, provided flight details personally. Im 6'0" so the bed was a little short. it was simply a wonderful experience."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew"

What I did not like was a baby was crying next to me for hours on the plane ride and they were disturbing most of the guest.
Make the airplanes more comfortable for long flights
Overnight flight, just wanted to sleep but impossible with old-fashioned business class (upright ) seats.

Cons: "Wine was not served cold"
Pros: "comfort and ease of transfer"
Cons: "food needs a little bit of improvement"
Pros: "The flight stewardesses were polite, nice, patient and accommodating. Boarding was prompt, quick, and organized. Plane lavatories we’re constantly cleaned so they won’t feel icky in the latter part of the journey."
Cons: "Perhaps, the movie choices could have been expanded."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "The movie selection was dated."
Pros: "The crew and service (business class) were excellent: attentive, polite, and responsive. The food was good, but not quite up to the people (because they set such a high standard)."
Cons: "The lie-flat seats in the A-350 from Hanoi to Seoul are much better than the seats on the aircraft used between Seoul and Honolulu (which I think was an A-330)."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The vegetarian ovo lacteo food could be much better. Because I am vegetarian doesn’t mean I can’t eat chocolate"
Pros: "Didn’t like any part of the flight."
Cons: "The cabin was way too hot for comfort. The food wasn’t good. Little entertainment options."
Pros: "Clean plane almost on time"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, greeted everyone with smiles. They seem to accommodate most requests, just be polite! There were a few people on my flight that were not the most friendly to them, but the attendants still tried to help as much as they could. Food is pretty good. I mean, don't be expecting a 5 star meal, it's still airplane food... International flight so I got 2 free checked bags, which was really nice."
Cons: "It's a small thing but the Chinese and Japanese movies only have Korean subtitles, it'd be nice if they had English too. Deplaning - the only exit is from the front of the plane, so it takes a while because there's 70-something rows of passengers."
Pros: "checking in at airport was quick and fast"
Cons: "Food quality is not good for the price of the flight ticket Food taste has gotten worse compare to before Drink selection is not enough. Movie selections were not enough and boring Sit is lacking a cushion Sit was broken and couldn’t have tilted back Ear phone outlet was broken and couldn’t get enough sounds People were changing sits or finding empty sits and self relocate their sits. Crews did not say anything. Some crew members didn’t speak enough english"
Pros: "Great service. Good food. Excellent entertainment options. Coach had widest seats I've ever sat in. Asiana is always my first choice."
Cons: "There was loads of turbulence, but it was handled well. And frankly, an airline can't control air conditions. So I have no real bad things to say about this flight."

Cons: "Food rivaled that of low cost carriers."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Every plane delayed."
Cons: "I had to pay $100 both legs of the flight for an extra bag. I could have went with another airline and payed a cheaper overall flight if i knew Asiana was going to charge me. Ive taken similar flight through Philippine air and they never charge me for 2 bags. This should be something factored in with $$ or highlighted before purchase. Instead of the airline sneaking extra fees on its customers....."
Cons: "Only one checked bag..most have two across the Pacific"
Pros: "Nice attendants"
Cons: "No english subtitles"
Pros: "I was able to get last minute exit window seats, which gave me unlimited leg room. I did not mind pledging to help with emergency exits. With boarding, they did away with the boarding groups, so whoever lined up earlier got to go on the plane, of course after the first class and business. This all worked fine."
Cons: "The cutlery for the meals were real metal, which felt nicer than plastic."
Pros: "I enjoyed having a larger screen for my personal in-flight entertainment. It was much better than on the 777."
Cons: "The seat was noticeably less comfortable on the A330 compared with the 777. The breakfast meal was pretty bad."
Pros: "Generally uneventful experience. Nothing bad happen. We had individual screen entertainment in economy. The bathrooms are nice."
Cons: "The food is always our problem, bec we r not used to eating Korean food, and by the time they ask us what food we can get? They run out every time they get to us , who , like us who are in the back seats- all is left is Korean food and we have no choice! Please make more food varieties, thank you"

Cons: "Rice porridge"
Pros: "The food was good and the movie selection was good."

Pros: "Flight attendants are great. always trying to help , with a smile while doing so."
Cons: "Delay 50 minutes waiting for connection flight 2 nd time (50%) on this trip, appears that this airline is getting bigger and disregarding schedules for $$$. Also advanced on line seating is meaningless. Internet web-sight is always a problem finding the correct pages if you have a problem no local contact listings (tel. #) in major cities they have offices in. I had a Tel. # for office in BKK, used in the past , they changed the # without even leaving a message or new #. I needed to change my departure date & because I could not contact them thru web sdite or Tel. this was not possible & missed a very important meeting in N.Y."
Pros: "The crews treated me with respect and the seat was okay being for economic seat."
Cons: "It’s my first time flying with China Southern. I have no comparison at this time."
Cons: "Seats on plane were small and uncomfortable. Checking in to flight was awful."
Pros: "Very clean, new plane, excellent boarding and flight. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "For some reason both ways I couldn't buy a seat and couldn't check in online. The way to Thailand I ended up with a middle seat because of that. And on the way back. After trying online and tried calling China southern. I finally got someone that speaks Thai to do it for me and reserve a window seat. I tried calling and pressing 3 for English and no one ever picked up. Very disappointed"
Pros: "It got me to my destination"
Cons: "Plane wasn't clean. Recliner button didn't work / didn't exist."

Pros: "The food was the best I've had while flying. Great entertainment selection. Generally smooth flight."

Cons: "horrible seats, horrible staff, horrible food. then their airline make you want in this giant, confusing line to transfer planes which feels like its part of the state, but it's actually some strange system run by their staff which you wait in line for a stamp. i littleraly took 2 hours."

Cons: "They lost my suitcase but promised to bring it back the next day. Let's see..."

Pros: "Was transferred to Thai Air as the plane was over sold."
Pros: "professional and very friendly, amazing"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Airport staff were friendly enough. Ticket price was cheap."
Cons: "Airline website for check-in was a huge challenge... not as easy or convenient to use at all. Cabin crew really could care less about service. Typical Chinese hospitality, if you know what I mean. But honestly, if you’re looking to save a few dollars and don’t mind lack of technological convenience or service Inflight, and your expectations aren’t that high, China Southern does the job."
Pros: "The Flight Attendants were very kind and helpful. always a lot of legroom!!"
Cons: "Didn't have individual TV screens on this route"
Pros: "Great customer service and aimed to please!"

Pros: "Everything from the service to the food to the attentiveness of the staff, from check-in to gate to flight attendants was superb."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 1.5 hours, causing me unknowable to miss my connection flight to Beijing. There was absolutely NO EFFORT by China Southern to assist in getting us to our gate in time. I ended running through the terminal to get to the gate about 8 minutes before departure only to be denied boarding by the unknowledgeable staff. if just one person had phoned the gate and told them to hold for a passenger, I could have made my connection. Communication and efficiency is beyond horrific by the Chinese airlines. Its like living in the stone ages."
Pros: "I flew China Southern from Shenyang to Shanghai 4 days after rupturing my Achilles tendon. There service was fantastic, getting me wheelchairs through both airports, changing my seat to give my leg more room, giving me special attention during the flight to make sure I was comfortable. Their service for me was outstanding and caring in every way. 10+ from me. Thank you China Southern!"
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "The flight was great! I was referring to the international flight being very poor service The economy seats were short legged"
Cons: "Bangkok to Fuzhou was a lack of communication no one helped with the transfer from Guangzhou to Fuzhou at all No one spoke English nor guided us"
Pros: "My flight was delayed several times so I was never able to get on it. However the staff was ready for me as soon as I got to the counter and had already prepared with another airline, Thai airlines, all the necessary flights to get me safely home. Truly outstanding service, One of the best I have ever had in my life. I will continue to recommend both this airlines to every person I know. You guys are the best. Thank you so much!"
Pros: "Short layover."
Cons: "Late departure. Cramped seating. Deplamed onto buses at Guansshou instead of docking at a terminal."
Pros: "Airlines is usually always on time. Flight staff very friendly and eager to assist passengers. I usually order my flight ticket months in advance so I always get a very great price. The meals are very good. I've used Eva Air, China Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern but I now regularly use only China Southern because I know what I will be getting with them. Oh and I fly economy. Robert..."
Cons: "No complaints. This last flight to Asia operated so smoothly."
Cons: "The WORSE check in service EVER./ Rude, arrogant and ignorant."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and most spoke some English. They offered drinks throughout the flight and were courteous. Personal TVs were nice."
Cons: "Take off was late. Could not use my cell phone the entire flight even if it was on airplane mode. Absolutely ridiculous as I've never had another airline do this. Why can I use an iPad but not an iPhone? The meal could've been much better. Maybe some other, better snacks instead?"
Pros: "Cheap and budget friendly option."
Cons: "No entertainment at all. No individual screens for our flights lasting up to 4 hours at all. We took 4 legs of flights lasting 4 hours each time. Only in 2 of the instances was there a tiny communal screen for sad looking c-list hollywood movie running on repeat."
Pros: "The service was friendly."
Cons: "We left a little bit late, but they kept us informed the whole tme and apologized considerately."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."

Cons: "just average"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Lack of movie selection, small glasses , no bourbon."
Pros: "Crew members were very polite"

Cons: "1. They lost my luggage going both ways. 2. The boarding process was miserable and dangerous. 3. They advertise to speak english...not true 4. The crew was very rigid to the point of being rude. 5. The lines for immigration were hours long so as to make one miss your connecting flight 5. Customer service for lost baggage was so terrible that I don't have words to describe. 6. My flight was 4 hours late with no explanation"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and attentive"
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was professional and friendly. Food choices were great. Great landing. My thanks to the pilot!"
Cons: "Seat was small, narrow, and not much leg room. I had difficulty with the seatbelt being too small. Upon exiting the plane into the airport, the airport was very hot and uncomfortable, which is not China Southern airline's fault."
Pros: "Having recieve any news about it"
Cons: "Plane Clean and good service"
Cons: "No organization at Guangzhou it was a free for all."
Pros: "Seat assignment, service, comfort on the plane were excellent."
Cons: "A group of Chinese tourists were in the wrong line. The person in charge then put all of us individuals who were behind the tourist group in a separate line to be serviced separately. After a few check-ins our line was closed and we were placed behind the tourist group again. It would have been nice to have more check-in staff to handle the line. In flight, it would have been nice to receive the Arrival form during the flight so it could be completed before the immigration desk."
Pros: "Economy seats were actually pretty comfortable and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was basically unsalted, watery rice and fruit. By the third round of it (long flight w/ 2 dinners and 1 breakfast) I just didn’t eat it. The entertainment also advertises movies and shows that they don’t have. Small selection that could be better."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safely."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaos and when we finally boarded, the seats were extremely uncomfortable. There also wasn’t any choice of entertainment and the movie that was playing had no way to have audio (no headphone jacks to plug into)"

Cons: "Food service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, ridiculous. Do better. No excuses."

Pros: "The crew and the food."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The crew was good. The flight was quick and direct."
Cons: "So they had a very quick food service then because of turbulence they closed the bathrooms and made everyone stay in their seats. I have 3 little kids and a wife with a small bladder. Over the course of 4 hours they need to use the bathroom sometime. My kids were literally crying because they had..."
Cons: "The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. Will be making an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. The sichuan airlines help desk just ignored me when i approached them with the missed flight document (in chinese) .Terrible! I had to book a hotel and another flight out of my own pocket for the airlines mistake."
Pros: "The staff in yangon were extremely helpful and understood my situation. However they were unable to do anything to rectify the issue."
Cons: "The time between arrival and departure for the connection flight was too short. Flight was missed. I will make an official complaint. Why sell flight tickets with no time to transfer. Even before the flight, staff knew i would miss the flight. Still nothing could be done."
Pros: "The direct flight is great! Especially traveling with kids."
Cons: "The flight took 45 minutes longer than scheduled even though we departed on time. Also I have young children and they played some action movie with shooting and killing and It was hard to distract my kids from watching that."
Cons: "I had to pack my laptop too much early - 15 minutes before we started descent. By other airlines it is possible to use it longer"
Pros: "Good cabin staff."
Cons: "A bit cold. - Not an airline problem, but often when a flight comes through a chinese airport late, they will have the transfer path closed so you have to go out as if you want to leave their airport. The immigration officers then want you to apply for visa's and its hard to communicate that you are just wanting to connect to another flight. Maybe they need a procedure for that when a flight comes in late and they have closed the connecting path."
Cons: "Very friendly crew members."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient. The check-in was smooth and they explained how to get to the gate location. The flight left on-time and arrived early."
Cons: "The plane was very warm and the AC was either turned off or set to a high temperature. There was no cold drinks and no ice on the plane and drink service on the four hour flight was only immediately before and after dinner in a small cup. Bring something to drink with you. Entertainment was a Chinese movie on a small overhead screen with English subtitles that were too small to read. Unlike other flights on the same airline, we were not offered a choice of meals."
Pros: "Good price and had entertainment and meals that were tasty."
Cons: "Too cramped, not much on the television, seat did not go far back enough to sleep for a long flight."
Cons: "The check in staff extremely rude and unprofessional. You can’t check your bag into your final destination You also must go thru immigration and customs in Chengdu"
Pros: "Plane departed on time. There was food service and 2 beverage services."
Cons: "long wait to get to our destination gate."

Pros: "Crew is nice and always ready for helping."
Cons: "Food was terrible and not fresh"
Cons: "Delayed. Bad food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Plane seats were small -- but as expected to be honest with you."
Cons: "My bags never arrived and haven't been found to date"
Cons: "The booking itinerary did not specify that there would be a layover in Jinan. Even though there was, it would have made more sense to allow the continuing passengers to stay on the plane rather than forcing everyone to go through customs at this point."
Cons: "Most of the crew was not skilled with English (both comprehension and pronunciation) so it was difficult to communicate or to understand instructions. The flight was also delayed for an hour, which could have been avoided if the airline staffed more people for check-in or streamlined the check-in process since that was the only bottleneck preventing passengers from being on time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice and the food was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The time frame. My flight was supposed to leave at 11:50pm. We left at almost 2am. In which case made me late to a layover I had in China which made me miss my last flight to Japan. BUT, luckily, a woman that worked for the airline in China was able to put me on an air China flight to japan, which again in very grateful for!!!!"
Cons: "We had to get off the plane in Jinan to go through customs and get back on rather than going straight to Chengdu. In Chengdu we had to claim our checked bags and check in again before boarding to Taipei."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The check in counter in Chengdu doesn't open until 1 1/2 hours before the flight departs."
Pros: "Sichuan is a good basic airline. No frills but they get the job done. Our flight was on time and the staff very professional"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Good basic airline with no frills, but who needs them for such a short flight?"
Cons: "No way to check in on line."
Pros: "Great air crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Poor cabin air flow"
Pros: "Flight over Himalayas was breath-taking!"
Cons: "Flew from Chengdu to Kathmandu, through Lhasa. Even though it was the same flight, we had to de-plane in Lhasa and go through security both coming off the plane and twice again before re-boarding the same plane, to the same seats. Probably a China / Tibet thing, but we received no explanation from Sichuan. After this uber-security play, we got back on the same plane and sat for almost 2 hours on the tarmac, even though we were the only plane in the airport! Sichuan served us lunch while still on the ground, but I would have preferred an explanation from the crew for the unreasonable delay."
Pros: "Great experience. Prompt service and polite staff all around. Nicest flight in China so far."
Cons: "Flight was three hours late and The luggage count be shipped to lax directly. I had to get my luggage, drag luggage to hotel, and check in again in Hangzhou. They even collected headphones and stoped videos on board half an hour before its landing."
Cons: "Worst airlines I have ever traveled. Crew and airport staff hardly understand English and there is no communication between passengers and airport crew when flight gets cancelled. Please do not select this airlines even if it's $500 cheaper."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 8:30pm. We were delayed until 11, then 11:50. At 11:50 we were still not boarding and an argument started about compensation. We were finally boarded at 12:30am. But on the plane we were not given information and continued to sit there for an hour and a half while the plane was further delayed. We finally left around 2:30am, six hours after we were supposed to leave. I missed my ride at Beijing and my first night at the hotel."
Cons: "Sichuan Airlines changed the flight time forward to 1525 from 1605 with no notice. The Flight was not posted on the departure board until it was time to check in leaving us confused as to whether the flight was going or cancelled."
Pros: "timeliness of boarding polite and helpful crew"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Organization is poor, food is aweful, seats are bad"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and friendly. Boarding was quick and painless. They served lunch that was fairly good standard food. For a specialty Chinese airline the English was quite good and entertainment choices were varied enough with English (foreign) movies and shows. Subtitles were available as well. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment was a little lacking due to it being a Chinese specialty flight but there were enough shows and movies in English it wasn't a huge issue. The shows/movies were maybe a little of the not popular sort but, again, they were entertaining."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Staff was friendly. Food was delicious. Boarding was quick, once we started."
Cons: "Boarded late and departed late. Couldn't use cell phones in airplane mode."
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: "Crews are amazing but the set is a little too tight."
Cons: "WiFi never work and food was bad everything is salty."
Cons: "It was like riding on s cardboard box. The most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in for a transpacific flight."
Cons: "Experienced no issues, overall good experience."
Cons: "Checkin process was really cumbersome and required a text message to confirm, which I couldn't do when I was in Asia."
Pros: "Crew were great and very attentive. Very much improved from experience 8 years ago and given the service, comfort and value would definitely repeat."
Cons: "Completely satisfied"
Pros: "Price was fantastic, crew was very good, food was very good."
Cons: "Seat configuration on 777 is not ideal. Very little room for stowage of small personal items (phone, glasses, etc). Power point was not working so I could not charge my tablet or phone."
Pros: "The cost was very good"
Cons: "Transfer in Nanjing to Bangkok. Delayed was not good but worse was that we arrived so early we couldn't check in for an hour and couldn't go to business class lounge. Also no transfer hallway. Had to clear immigration just to get on next flight."
Pros: "cheap price"
Cons: "steward/airhostes did not smile and talked angrily to customer."
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: "Rear business class seats don't recline much. Crew are surly! About what I expected. Not the airline I choose when I have a choice."
Pros: "Straightforward, get-what-you-pay-for experience. Fairly standard seats, personal entertainment options on the trans-pacific flight, but not within asia. Food served on all flights. Check-in at the airport was also straightforward."
Cons: "Would not recommend connecting in Nanjing, as the airport handles international transfers a bit oddly. Expect to wait in a group in a handful of different lines, while being herded quite closely by a customs agent from point to point, passports collected when you get off the plane."
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this trip (which was supposed to be my return flight). They wouldn't let me on the plane because my boarding pass didn't EXACTLY match my passport (which doesn't have my middle name). Not only did they cancel this flight, but also my return flight. Worst travel experience ever."
Cons: "Couldnt board plane because passport about to expired.i didnt know. I would love a full refund so I can go to Thailand in December and Vietnam in October."
Cons: "CE is budget carrier so you are often not walking into or out of terminal in China . You are on minibus commuting to/from plane. Once you land it may still be a 30-40 min commute to parking spot and minibus to terminal."
Pros: "Recliner seats were spacious and comfortable. Flight was on time. The meal was good also."
Cons: "Very long walk from check in to gate - (C 1). No jetway at pvg, but did have a business class bus"
Cons: "We traveled in business class there was a flight attendant that was very rude."
Cons: "Your flight delay so long time so i habe to canceled all plan. I lost a lpt of money."
Pros: "Clean, standard decor with great leg room for the international flights. Pretty solid choice for the price you pay. Food was surprisingly good and they had a very solid entertainment system. On par or even better experience from what you can expect from a typical American domestic airline carrier... which is a low bar."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "Cheap flight. We had a problem with our tickets on the flight there. The staff was very helpful and resolved issue promptly."
Cons: "Cheap flight - therefore we never got off directly at the terminal but had to be bused to and from the plane. Food was terrible. But then when is airline food good. It was a cheap flight that got me to my loved one. Spending 24 hours travelling is never fun. Next time I will look into business class."
Pros: "The staff are very efficient and professional. The food was much better than I expected. We were given pillows and blankets . Bathrooms were clean ."
Cons: "The only issue with CEA was checking in and boarding. It was brutal coming out of Bangkok. I’m not sure if this is the fault of CEA or Bangkok Airport."
Pros: "Good entertainment system and helpful crew. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Bangkok passport control was extremely backed-up so many passengers were stuck there for a long time. China Eastern called for final boarding 5 minutes after boarding began, which created a panic! This made everyone run the long distance to the gate, to only find out that the plane was half empty upon boarding. We ended up departing late because of the aforementioned bottle neck but China Eastern should not have announced the final boarding call so soon."
Pros: "I had no issues. It arrived early."
Cons: "My stuff was stolen from the outer compartment."
Pros: "The last leg of my return flight was nice and that feed was good"
Cons: "I had asked about a special meal and was told I could only order it at the check in booth at the airport. I had decided not to. Apparently it was set up anyway and I was served an awful dinner. The instant coffee and food on the first leg of my return flight was beyond human consumption"
Cons: "Lines to check in for boarding were LONG. One must arrive super early."
Pros: "Please email me a contact in Bangkok - English speaking"
Cons: "The food was terrible and my flight was delayed for 4 hours. I almost missed my connecting flight. Not treated well at the airport also."
Pros: "Loved the continuous movies1"
Pros: "Priced right."
Cons: "Food was gross. Small plane so no on board entertainment. Seats were not comfortable. Not much communication between staff and passengers. When boarding"
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go on time."
Cons: "the food is absolutely abysmal and they had no options for a non-meat eater."
Cons: "Many of the passengers were standing almost 75% of the time. I would've expected the crew to, at the least, ask people to clear the walk ways. Really my complaint is with the passengers, now the crew. As for the food, we were served to eastern style meals that were both equally disgusting and a finger sandwich meant for a toddler."
Pros: "Cabin crew were good and we took off on time for this leg."
Cons: "Chaos boarding. Everyone rushed for getting on plane, not sure why. Difficult to get up when person in front puts seat back."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful, there were lots of movies and although the food wasn't great, I did appreciate the number of meal."
Cons: "I strongly disliked having to dump our liquids before boarding the plane. I found this to be unnecessary considering we had already gone through security. It can also be dangerous considering the length of the flight and the fact that flight attendants can't come around often enough to make up for that."
Cons: "The food and tight space."
Cons: "NO VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN FOOD OPTIONS. Chicken beef or fish. The entire long plane ride the only thing I could use as a meal was juice."
Pros: "Nothing specific to like , except cone safely , flat bed ok"
Cons: "Food from Bangkok to Shanghai never given , Except water , so bad flight like old truck , Shanghai to New York flight bad experience with food"
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Food in flight was bad Flight started late Walk to the boarding gate was 15 mins There were no food or other stalls near the gate"
Pros: "The food. The friendliness"
Cons: "Such a long flight. I needed to put my legs and feet up to decrease swelling and no place for that"
Pros: "Flew with them for third time , never a problem, flights on time , connection smooth, great bargain in the sky and definitely looking for boarding their planes again."
Cons: "Flew with them for third time , never a problem, flights on time , connection smooth, great bargain in the sky and definitely looking for boarding their planes again."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight due to my layovers being to long and me needing a visa. I booked the flight via Kayak because it was the cheapest one. Inhad no idea i needed a visa just to wait in the airport."
Pros: "The staff on the plane was amazing"
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"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. My seat was broke and I was not able to rest. The plane was very old and smelly."
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 is no much I can say that I like."
Cons: "Two of the flights were delayed. The first delay from Bangkok to Shanghai caused that I missed my connecting flight. It was a nightmafre at Shanghai airport. I was forced to go through immigrations and customs and rechecked for the next flight. It was a poor way of handling a passenger on a misconnected flight due to the airline fault."
Pros: "Convenient Flight to nanjing transfer process was fast and efficient New 777's are excellent."
Cons: "Check-in line should be better organized and NOT allow many people to cut in line. No phones can be used in the Airplane mode, need to be off, if I have known I would have bought other devices Signed up for a free Wifi which they sent me password but NO wifi was available for flight Exit row seats are extra charge of $120 but if you have an alignment and or injury they waived the fee for the customer who was checking in next to us, defeats the purpose of exit row if the person cannot help people in an emergency. Staff on plane were unpolite."
Cons: "Lost my bag and don't even get it back on the next day!"
Cons: "They stole items from my luggage. Stole my electric toothbrush and my wife's. Also stole her hair drier."
Cons: "Make it easier to request vegetarian meals, and control the boarding process better. Maybe using boarding groups would be a good idea."
