Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "seat food and cabin crew"

Pros: "Superb business class seats"
Cons: "Entertainment (movie) choices could be better."
Pros: "The flight got attendants were polite."
Cons: "The food was not so good as expected, to my surprise and disappointment. The seats were even narrower than my next connecting 2hr-flight from Incheon to Osaka... Also the flight attendants spoke only in Korean when walking down the aisles offering coffee, tea, etc. When I fly on other Asian airlines (Singaporean, Japan Airlines, All Nippon) everything is bilingual so it is easy to understand what is being offered or asked."
Cons: "not enough movie choices. Flight delayed 30 minutes, had to deplane on tarmac & ride shuttle bus to terminal, waited 30 minutes for luggage causing passengers from another flight arriving later to get taxis first so had to wait another 30 minutes for available taxis."
Pros: "Quality of meals were better than their competitors. They were rather enjoyable. Also, flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The delay made me miss a free shuttle to Yongsan Army Base, Seoul, so I had to find an airport limousine (bus) service to a nearby hotel (Crown Hotel) to the base. Very inconvenient! Entertainment system is outdated, and there was no plug-ins on the seats."
Pros: "Staff and flight crew all very nice and profressional and attentive; bags arrived at final destination - no issues with missing luggage"
Cons: "Another delay from icn to bkk, No meal on this 6hr flight! Catering issue, so no dinner... just a pack of peanuts, literally. Seats very uncomfortable in economy, lack cushioning"

Pros: "I always have a good experience with Asiana."

Cons: "Old style seating arrangement Many young kids in business?"
Pros: "The Food was great! Asiana Airlines Economy Seats have more leg room than most airlines. Service was Excellent."
Cons: "We had just purchased coffee and the boarding agent told us that their policy was that we were not permitted to take hot coffee onto the aircraft. My guess is it had to do with safety. I've never been told this on any of the hundreds of flight i've been on traveling the world. It must be a South Korea thing."
Pros: "Same comfort as my flight from Honolulu to Seoul."
Cons: "The technology of the in-flight entertainment console. Outdated and less movies to choose from."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Plane looked clean and in good condition. Seat comfort was okay."
Cons: "Sat on the plane for over 1 hour waiting for connecting flight."
Pros: "They took care of my mom's heavy luggage and changed her to better seat."
Cons: "... 3) Upon landing in ICN, a connections Asiana staff, instead of an apology, shouted "Hurry up, you are late". I was not late; Their plane was late! 4) In ICN, the connection flight was also delayed by half an hour. We arrived so late that I missed the last airport limo bus & was forced to arrange alternate, more expensive, transport to my lodging accommodations. 5) while in ICN, I experienced the same Curt conduct from Asiana staff!"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful. They always had a smile. The food was delicious too."
Pros: "The food and service were very good. Each of the crewmembers I encountered was professional, courteous, and friendly. I also enjoyed the food, and for the first time in my life I think I said "no thank you, that's enough"!"
Cons: "first, although this was an international trip , in business class, the seats were more like something you would find in the premium economy section of other airlines. They were tired and outdated. Second, The entertainment package was abysmal. Basically, you were forced to watch a TV with bad reception, and no ability to choose what you wanted to see other than flipping through the channels and seeing what was already on. That meant never seeing the beginning of a movie. The picture quality was very poor. Although an international flight of seven hours duration, it felt more like a charter bus to Vegas buy a discount operator. I have the exact same experience flying from Korea to San Francisco on a prior trip. If I could learn how to determine which aircraft I would be flying in the future, I would never book an international trip on Asiana knowing that this particular aircraft would convey me."
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: "everything OK"
Cons: "the food was served in a carton box, the meal was a sandwich and desert in a cup."
Pros: "The leg room and comfort of the seat were noticeably different from other airlines. I enjoyed this flight on the 777 much better than my return flight on an A330."
Cons: "The screen for the individual entertainment system was extremely small. The one on the A330 was much bigger and better. Also, the limited choices of in-flight entertainment were disappointing."
Cons: "Old plane, Boeing 777, LCD screens need updating, otherwise everything was great"
Pros: "1. The nap zone 2. Free shower 3. Free wifi"
Pros: "A friendly professional crew"
Cons: "Food could be better. Was comparatively less quality."
Pros: "Helpful and kind crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable economy seats and lackluster entertainment."
Pros: "Halal food like fish or fried rice with egg would be a better options"
Cons: "Rice porridge"
Pros: "The food was good"
Pros: "Lots of room in an economy seat, both in seat width and in knee-room. Great entertainment system! Good food and served frequently during a flight that lasted over 12 hours. Very efficient boarding process."
Cons: "The crew could have been more pro-active in offering drinks during such a long flight. A wider choice of movies would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Asiana staff are not trained in medical issues such as what to do when a passenger complains they are feeling weak from low blood sugar/hypoglycemia conditions. It is common for people with low blood sugar to have blood sugar drops while flying. The condition is dangerous if not handled properly but can be remedied very easily by simply increasing a passenger's intake of protein (such as chicken or beef) and carbohydrates, such as rice (but not white bread or deserts, as those cause spikes and drops in blood sugar). Basically, you only need an extra meal. I told a crew member about my condition and said I simply needed a second meal. She gave me a problem about it and at first refused. She understood the English words low blood sugar, but she was obviously not trained in that common issue. I was ready to pass out due to a drop in blood sugar and only when I threatened to file a lawsuit in a U.S. court against Asiana (as I anticipated passing out) did she react. Within a few seconds after I mentioned a potential lawsuit, she got me a second meal of chicken and rice. I ate it and the protein and carbs stabilized my blood sugar for the rest of the flight. It's a problem easily remedied but I had to argue with the flight attendant to grant my very simple but very necessary request. Asiana needs to comply with the norms of global carriers and train its staff to understand such comment conditions as low blood sugar. U.S. and European carrier understand this condition very well, and their crews are trained in how to handle it by simply giving extra food. Asiana needs to comply with modern, global norms."
Cons: "If you have low blood sugar dont take Asiana. Crew not trained in this simple medical issue."
Pros: "Flying with a partner, the two seater in economy was comfortable, good leg space, reasonable food , good service."
Pros: "good experience"
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Delayed for several hours after boarding because of a technical difficulty with the airplane. This delay caused me to miss an important dinner meeting in Thailand and cost me extra money to arrange transportation from the BKK to my hotel."
Pros: "Crew, food, boarding"
Cons: "There was no electrical outlet or USB port to charge electronic devices. The entertainment system was not working properly. Some movies were working and other did not work at all."
Pros: "Everything was great: service, food, comfort, etc."
Cons: "I liked everything about this flight-- no negative feedback!"
Pros: "The staff was nice and accommodating which is a big plus and the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "The flight was super delayed. Don't get me wrong I know things happen and I even know they used that time to make sure the plane was good to go, but it's the principle. I had expected to make it Bangkok at a certain time, but this delay well...delayed me lol. You get the point."
Pros: "We took an air bus, which was very comfortable. The food was delicious and everyone had a personal TV. There was plenty of leg room."
Pros: "Crew were very attentive and personally escorted us to our connecting flight to make sure we made it on time, as our first flight was delayed. Decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Flight 1 hour delayed. Seat is kinda hard."
Pros: "The trip was uneventful, food was good, service was excellent, restrooms were clean, couteous fight attendants."
Cons: "The check in time to board was very long-understandably that may be out of Asiana's control. The check in procedures at the gate was inefficient-again, out of Asiana's control. Seats were tight-seems to be made for a petite person. I'm 5-7 with broader shoulders."
Pros: "New aircraft with personal TVs; good food; efficient and professional service by the cabin crew"
Pros: "Thai are so dependable and such lovely service. Nothing is too much."
Pros: "On time Comfortable seats Great service"

Pros: "Professional staff and good food"
Cons: "Landing was a little bumpy"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and polite"
Pros: "Ok plane, food was fine too"

Cons: "Long time getting through Frankfurt airport security"
Pros: "Quite quick -clean aircraft"
Cons: "Terrible entertainment options"

Cons: "Food was alright, i had better food in Bangkok airways"
Pros: "Overall, inflight service good except chief purser at the front of the aircraft rather arrogant. Others helpful, on delighting the a/c, ground staff helpful."
Cons: "All ok."
Pros: "ARN to BKK: Good crew, good seat (Thai Premium Economy - available Scandinavian flights only), on time departure and early arrival BKK."
Cons: "Food was tasty enough, but not hot when served (a common problem with many airlines) and only two options for Premium Economy. Entertainment options also limited."
Cons: "Boarding - No announcement regarding boarding, people were unsure when boarding would commence and reason for the delay. Comfort- it was very hot, as temperature control is activated by staff; I asked staff to turn on air conditioning in my area as it was very hot and stuffy, but it was still hot and fairly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Pros: "Aircrafts ...which are big"
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good"
Cons: "Dinner was tasteless and my cup of tea was bitter, too strong and a bit cold The cup of tea slid off the slippery, sloped table right into my lap, over my mobile phone and into my bag below. The staff didn’t seem to care. They admitted this happened a fair bit."
Cons: "No gate at landing, waiting for buses, long Immigration lines and then bags delayed. Time trying to get out of BKK was longer than the flight."
Cons: "Our itinerary did not show that we had to transit in Chiangmai. It came as a surprise when we checked in at the airport. That was very misleading. We had to remove our hand luggage at each stop."
Cons: "Waited for at the domestic check in for 40 minutes only to be told to check in at int terminal!! Absolutely ridiculous set up!!"
Pros: "Very efficient and attentive service . On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Old aircraft, 747 , seats very comfortable but no flat beds.. Choice of movies but mostly second grade."
Cons: "Our connection flight from Germany was changed and we were not informed meaning we land in Germany after the flight has departed. We're forced to buy a last minute flight with a different airline to ensure we do not miss our honeymoon plans"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Poor food and boarding"
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and helpful. There was a variety of entertainment options, with recent films, tv shows and music options to keep you busy. I also thought the food options were good, too. You didn't go too long without being asked about a new beverage or meal, pretty satisfying."

Pros: "The staff were great but couldn't rectify the entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment as the movie wouldn't play or watch anything else."
Pros: "I really love Thai Air business class internal flights. Great seat layout like the long haul privacy. Thai Air staff always excellent and even on this 70 min flight they serve a hot Thai meal rather than cop out with sarnies. Also was llucky on the flight down to HKt was on a brand new Dreamliner, I think they were testing. Wow! Multi coloured calming lighting and no window blinds ! 5heh work electinically like polarised glasses! What next! Highly recommend Thai Air for business class."

Pros: "Boarding and in flight services"

Pros: "World class airline. Everything are world class. Worth to pay for this airline"
Cons: "We had two drunks behind us constantly kicking our seats. There was three free seats in front of us, we asked to move there but we were told that those seats were for crew in case of turbulence. It's the first time I hear this. Half way through they allowed us to move for those seats."
Cons: "Chiang Mai lounge worn-out. Staff nonexistent. No alcohol. Snacks economy quality.Delay 30 minutes, no explanation given. No alcohol served on domestic flights in business? Seriously? Meal no choice. Entertainment nonexistent. Airshow only. The seats look like a 70s Sci Fi B movie set. In recline I kept kicking the seat in front of me. This was all on a one hour and ten minute flight. I'll never fly them long haul."
Pros: "Food and boarding experience"
Pros: "In an exit row seat, so plenty of space and the crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Seating legroom Food Drinks Service Attention to detail Entertainment choices On time Check in to boarding perfect Disembarking to baggage collection faultless..."

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"
Pros: "One person went out of his was to get me an emergency exit row seat. I was not able to pre-select a seat when buying my ticket. When I phoned and spike to someone, I got a vague response."

Cons: "Food was really plain. More drink selection would be better."

Pros: "Friendly staffs"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Pros: "When we landed Guangzhou, the polit’s landing was amazing."
Cons: "The food was horrible this time. Only had two meals, some had three meals. They are suppose to feed you before you land, but only some had three meals. Maybe it’s time to consider free WiFi. It’s such a long flight."
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: "They put us up in a hotel"
Cons: "We missed the connection due to airline delays. So the flight they're going to get us into Bangkok will happen the evening of the next day. If they can get us the ticket change."
Pros: "Excellent caring crew."
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection"
Pros: "I do get what some other reviewers are saying. The food was just fine, better than some airlines but no worse for sure. The crew was excellent and attentive, and i'm saying these things not having had the benefit of the CHEAP flight noted by the previous reviewer. I'll be flying with these guys again."
Cons: "The same gripes everyone has about airline experiences, it's cramped, x 15 hours."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent !"
Cons: "I had to return early because of a Crisis in the Family. the amount charged to change the ticket date as Highway Robbery. no consideration what so ever !"
Pros: "Crew was fine - nice enough."
Cons: "Oh my! So much body odor(!) on the airplane. It isn’t CHina Southern Air’s fault, but the plane smelled to high heaven - it was a terrible 2.5 hours. I’ll avoid this airline going forward due to the $150 luggage fees and smelly cabin."
Pros: "On Time departure, Attentive crews."
Cons: "It would be nice to see a smiley faces from all the cabin crews while providing services."
Cons: "They gave me a regular seat when I paid for extra comfort."
Cons: "My bag didn’t make it to the final destination. I was one of many people in the same situation who made the same journey originating in SF and ending in Bangkok. We had an almost 3 hour layover in Guangzhou, so I doubt that there wasn’t enough time to make the bag transfer."
Cons: "My luggage went missing. It’s very disappointing. I was ensured that my luggage would not be affected by the delay of the previous flight. This ruined my first day in Bangkok."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly staff. Prompt response to call button"
Cons: "Same as nearly every airline....;why not board from the rear. it would be so much more efficient.."
Cons: "First and Business not VIP immigration or luggage!?! Multiple crying babies with toddlers running the isles all night with no parental control or Flight attendant(s) intervention, even after being asked by multiple passengers. Woooh... movie/IFE selection drastically cut back! why? Food, worst in 7yrs. Guangzhou layover, lounge(s) not prepared, minimal pre packaged snacks no hot food, showers not working or rather not cleaned from night before would take "hours" for them to be cleaned and available. Will probably be last flight with Southern China, has dropped considerably and is no longer a "worthy" airline."
Cons: "of course they didn’t transfer our meal requests to the new flight. all the staff were grumpy."
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: "The flight service was excellent and very attentive."
Cons: "I don’t eat airline food but if the quality of the food in the economy section got better, I might try eating it."
Pros: "Good food and very comfortable!"
Cons: "They didn't have individual TV's onr the flight."
Pros: "First of all, I understand how their business model works. Hence no delay is a big plus. Also the food is decent and customer service is OK. Their movie collections are sick too!!! You must to check them out!"
Cons: "No cell phone during the flight. The way they assigned seats i.e if you are a random customer, they will assign you to all the way to the back or middle seat. Not to mention their website is basically useless if you are a foreigner."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and friendly. Offered a warmed, *fabric* refreshment "towelette" before serving the "big" meal (rather than a paper towel, not heated)."
Cons: "Plastic "tableware" (knives, forks, spoons)"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Direct flight."
Cons: "Food is horrible. Aircraft cabin smells old and dirty. Staff not very friendly"
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Cons: "The food was very Chinese which makes sense it just wasn't to my taste."
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."
Pros: "Good wine"
Cons: "No sparkling water, no good meet"
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "unappetizing meals"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the cabin crew helpful. The entertainment options were pretty varied and there were lots of options either in English or with English subtitles."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I was assigned a center seat even though the aisle seat next to me was vacant, so I took that one anyway. The bathroom situation was the worst part. I don't think there were enough on the plane, and other passengers were taking way too long in the bathroom. When one passenger decided economy class passengers weren't allowed to use one of the toilets, the staff did nothing. That was frustrating. :/"
Pros: "The flight arrived on time. The cabin crew was reasonably polite."
Cons: "The service was underwhelming. While it wasn't bad, it felt like a domestic flight instead of an international flight. Boarding was a free-for-all."
Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent boarding process, on time and punctual. Overall a wonderful flying experience."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I monitors for television and movies stoped working on our row halfway through the 15 hour flight."
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: "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: "I dont understand how an airline can take people on a flight for so long amd not have anything cold to drink. there was no ice for drinks and the juice was left out. all they had to drink was warm jucie and warm flat soda. Ive never been on a flight that ling that didnt offer cocktails either which I thought was total bullshit. the food was horrible but thats common. the flightwasnt the only thing wrong either. the china southern airport was 45*F inside the terminal for my 7hr layover and I froze the entire time. I will never fly with china southern again"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "This is the worst airline ever!!! The flight attendants are nothing but rude and poorly train on customers. Gave everyone else (Chinese) snacks and blankets and skip me. Chinese are fake and rude."
Pros: "From check inn to arrival baggage all well I did not Expect was little nervous when I had booked . But all was good"
Cons: "Aircraft clean and new , staff from ground and air crew all Helpful"
Pros: "Arrived on time ."
Cons: "No western food selection"
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: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The crew are nice. Some have difficulties in dealing with Westerners. Awful food."
Cons: "Awful food"
Pros: "Ease of change of planes"
Cons: "Long walks through airport seemed endless Shuttle bus to gates steep stairs no ramp or elevator Exiting plane. Glad it wasn't raining"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The service on board could have been better."
Cons: "The food could be improved."
Pros: "entertainment was fine"
Cons: "The seats provide very little space which is especially bad during such a long flight, the food options are really bad and limiting for those who don't eat red meat or don't eat meat at all, this is the only flight i've ever been on where i was asked to take out my headphones during take off and 30mins-1hr before landing, the aircraft itself is incredibly dated and left in disarray often."
Pros: "Overall, flight, crews, services, airplanes were better than expected"
Pros: "The flight attendant got me a vegetarian meal without me asking. I thought I had ordered one but I had not? So I thought I would have to skip a meal."
Cons: "I hada middle seat next to a very large man with broad shoulders who was taking up space in my seat (he also had a middle seat). I know he could not help it but the flight was long and very cramped and uncomfortable. I wish larger passengers would not get a middle seat"
Cons: "no indication of which terminal to check in, flight was delayed, both cabin and ground crew (and chengdu airport staff) hardly spoke English."
Cons: "The food box had two bread-like items (a pastry and a cake bread item). I wish the food provided was more diverse in nutrition."
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: "This flight was shorter but i felt flight attendants were still very attentive."
Cons: "Didn’t have individual screens to watch movies. One movie didn’t have English subtitles. Not that i cared because I was in and out of sleep, just pointing it out."
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 had a lot of leg room on this one, so that was awesome. Crew was nice and yeah I was happy that I got a lot of room. I cannot really complain, I'm a big guy and I need some room."
Cons: "The food and entertainment was ruff though. I don't even know what they put in one of those pastries I got but it tasted like old sweaty socks. The movie they put on was horrible to."
Pros: "On time boarding. No delays. Crew did their best to help everyone."
Cons: "Cattle boarding at PVG was less than ideal. Long wait time between flights. Equipment not as comfortable, but thankfully is was a relatively short flight. No choice of entertainment options and cabin lights were on for the duration of the second flight. Cold meal was okay on second flight from PVG to BKK, could have been better."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and a lot shorter. The staff were great."
Cons: "Nothing to not like !"
Pros: "New plane. Airport at LAX and Shanghai clean."
Cons: "Bad food and lost my luggage with all my cosmetics and shoes When I asked for different food they said that was all they had. They told me they had 24 hrs to find my luggage."
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: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Food, crew"
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: "Food, entertainment, and crew"
Cons: "Lost mine and three other peoples checked bag on the connection stop in Shanghai. Took 6 days to get it to me."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Seats were small."
Cons: "Food could be better. Website slow - sometimes unresponsive."
Pros: "Way more enjoyable then the flight from lax to Shanghai"
Cons: "I don’t like being shuttled out to a plane on the tarmac- but that’s China."
Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "Food was unappetizing. They didn't provide much liquids and we we're not able to use cell phones even on airplane mode. The whole flight was hot. I have tried other airlines and this was not even close to the service that other airlines provide. Won't be using this airline again."
Cons: "Could have used some entertainment even it was a 5hr flight."
Pros: "Not overcrowded so we could sit together. Smooth flight, actually bigger seats and more comfortable than the 15 hour leg."
Cons: "The seats we bought together weren’t together, the crew was still pretty uncommunicative and ride."
Cons: "Food, lack of water,."
Pros: "The actual flying."
Cons: "Not only dis I not like your severely lacking itinerary, it ended up costing me $500 additional dollars. I can't believe that you didn't add information on my itinerary that our plane would be landing in a different Chinese city than what was listed on YOUR itinerary. It showed only one stop in China rather than two. I'm still not sure if we were suppose to remain on the plane,depart and re board, or if we were to catch a connecting flight for the rest of our journey. As it happened, we ended up getting a hotel and had to buy another flight out of the country because we would have been in violation of China's 72-hour visa requirements. Otherwise, they could have gotten us on to our destination free of charge(minus the unexpected hotel stay). i have never really liked your shorthand style itinerary and if you choose to continue to play loosey goosey, I will not choose your website again. Additionally, I strongly feel that you should be held responsible for your lack of information, especially when traveling thru a foreign country."
Pros: "Clean. Pleasant. But long flight for no movie choiceFood"
Cons: "Food. Almost made me sick. Seafood noodles with soylent green"
Pros: "The flight was a normal, uneventful flight. I slept most of the way."
Cons: "The transfer process, as described in the prior segment, was much more confusing than it needs to be. The food wasn't very good on this flight, but I wasn't exactly sure what I was given to eat since I couldn't tell by taste. One star was given to boarding since I assume this rating also includes, checking in / transferring. The actually boarding of the plane was as normal as any other boarding I've had."
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: "Cabin service was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was quite poor."
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."
Pros: "Lot of space to lay down."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so many times. No movies on the plane, and just bread snacks. I think I was just upset at the flight supposed to be leaving at 8:30 and not leaving til 12."
Cons: "The plane has delayed"
Pros: "The flight was on time and got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The food was poor quality, the worst airline food I have had in a long while. The selection of entertainment was very limited. We stood in the pouring rain, waiting to get on the flight. A lot of the passengers (and their carry-ons) were wet once they got on the plane."
Cons: "China Eastern changed their flight twice: 1. 3/31/2017 MU 5078 the Orginal departure time was 20:55, but the actual departure time was 19:50; 2. 4/15/2017 MU 5077the Orginal departure time was 18:35, but the actual departure time was 17:19, and this made me to miss the flight on 4/15/2017. However, there was nobody informed me the flights were changed including KAYAK, I never get any email from KAYAK, this is really unaccepteble, and wasted my time to change flight."
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"
Pros: "Good was good"
Cons: "Didn't like having to take bus to plane"
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: "Chinese have no clue about customer service!!!!"
Pros: "I actually missed my flight one whole day but airline charged me only 100$ for another ticket."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had recheck my bags for the same airline in Chengdu"
Pros: "Stewardesses were friendly."
Cons: "It was hot and quite cramped."
Pros: "best offered luguage weight without any charged you can find."
Pros: "This airline doesn't have too modern approach to customer service."
Cons: "Most everything."
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"
