Pros: "The crew was helpful and meals are delicious."
Cons: "Give free mask."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, toilets clean."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 times, didn’t receive text or Email from the second delayed"
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was nice and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Add a low carb meal option"
Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "There was lots of leg room. Crew was nice."
Cons: "One of our seats had a broken recliner button."
Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed on time....excellent service, too."
Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Very comfortable flights. Exceptional crew on and off the planes. Great food and drink/snack options. Lots of entertainment options as well."
Cons: "I have no complaints abouts my flights. Travel is tough at times but ANA made it seem easy."
Pros: "The stewardesses were kind and courteous, attending to every need with a smile."
Cons: "Not vegan/vegetarian options for meals. Also if you are able to upgrade from economy seating, do so! Your legs will thank you for it. L"
Pros: "Food and services"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Really polite and attentive. Liked that they offered liquids throughout the flight to keep us hydrated. Good experience overall."

Cons: "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "The seat I selected was the first row of regular economy. It had extra legroom and received excellent attention by the staff for drinks. The arline served 3 meals and snacks on the flight. I felt like I was eating the entire trip. :)"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow. Most of the rows behind had armrests that were able to raise and lower, but due to my seat selection, my row had the stow-away monitors in the armrests. The seats also didn't technically recline. The lower seat cushion merely moved forward, emulating a recline, but the seatback didn't actually move. It was not quite comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Great entertainment selection."

Pros: "Aircraft menu and service"

Cons: "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX. Seat selected at time of booking was not honored since selection has to be done on United Air's web site. Did not get the meal I ordered for the same reason. Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."

Pros: "The service, our seats, overall comfort and cleanliness of the plane."
Pros: "flight attendants excellent"
Pros: "They had good movies and music of my choice."

Pros: "The service and the seats"

Pros: "pleasant service. no surprises, delays , etc. thank you."
Cons: "why would they call it a 'hindu meal' if it includes meat?! pilot & crew a bit hard to understand when they spoke english - thick accent."
Cons: "There was turbulence at the beginning of the flight so we couldn't get the snack that we ordered. When the turbulence died down, the flight attendants did not bother to complete the food service for snacks or drinks ordered. I had to get up and ask twice. They were not present much at all in BUSINESS CLASS. So that's why I rated the experience as poor. The international food choices are poor. They do not taste good. I think I have to stop flying ANA. Kisha"

Cons: "I will not buy the air ticket from cheap ticket any more."
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."

Pros: "The economy section of the upper deck of the A380 is great!"

Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."

Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."
Pros: "evening meal was delicious"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible, and not properly heated, risky food handling not acceptable."
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine . So I asked the staff for paracetamol when I reach to cabin. She response me very first with medicine and a cup of water . Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."

Pros: "The entertainment system was really good..."
Cons: "The food was poor compared to other airlines...IE British airlines void us great"
Cons: "The flight attendants had been un attentive. I was missing a headset so I asked for one, but I never got it. I borrowed that of the person seated next to me. When it was time for serving hot beverages, I skipped tea and waited for the coffee. However, the flight attendant who was serving the coffee never looked my way, and she passed so fast before I got the chance to signal her. Afterwards, I asked three other flight attendants and even though they said they would come back with the coffee, they never did. Finally, when I was about to get up and head to the crew cabin, one flight attendant came by and I pointed to her that I wasn't offered coffe so I was about to go and see if I could get a cup of coffee from the cabin. She said that I didn't need to get up for that and she would get it to me. They eventually brought that coffee one hour after my first request."

Pros: "Staff was great, plane was comfortable."
Pros: "The new plane is nice, reasonably comfortable in economy with clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Frankly can't remember much about this leg of the trip because the next 14 hour leg was so overwhelmingly bad thanks to the highly disruptive fellow passengers and the lack of control from the flight crew."
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to be friendly"
Cons: "How one of your crew member expressed herself to another crew member regarding the passenger next to me. just because he asked her what type of vegetable were in the eggs. Your crew member was very inconsiderate. All she had to do was answer the question and not make any other comment to her co-worker (Joyanne) about how she wish they (meaning ) passengers would read the menu. I was very disappointed about her comment. Even worst, to see how inconsiderate she was and how she did not even considered if this gentleman could read, or did not have his eyewear. I believe her comment was unnecessary and inappropriate at the time. I could not quite get her name, but she does not need to deal with the public."

Cons: "Long walk from flight to the immigration Tooo tooo long"

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Got to choose seat ahead of time. Professional service at the City check-in. Seamless travel."
Cons: "Very unorganized and dirty inside cabin"

Cons: "Food was okay. We ordered 4 different types of vegetarian meals, but only received on type of vegetarian meal. Movie selection was not great, but I still appreciate that each seat has its own personal on demand video screen."
Pros: "The flight was fairly smooth. There was a good selection of movies."
Cons: "Coming off the plane in Nanjing was frustrating as they were totally unorganized and the plane was delayed because of this. We had to go through customs and recheck everything. We then went back on the same plane to the same seat. Kinda confusing but all in all it was okay."

Cons: "Bathroom was dirty and functioning poorly. Security to get to the departure gates was laborious and SLOW."
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: "Everything was good"
Pros: "the plane was new, fairly comfortable, crews could speak somewhat ok english"

Pros: "New Plane, nice and friendly crew."
Pros: "Nov 29, 2017. While flying China Eastern through Quingdao Liuting International Airport with overnight transit, I knew that airport shuts down overnight and was prepared for it with off the airport hotel reservation and all. But I was surprised at the time of check in at the origination airport (San Francisco) that I would be required to pickup the checked in luggage at Quingdao and check it back in next day for connecting flight to Shanghai. There was a Left Luggage facility at Quingdao Liuting Aurport on second floor departure level, to take away some pain. But more surprise as they charged me for two full days just for overnight service. Argument was that I am leaving the luggage today evening at 7:00pm but will pick 5:30am tomorrow morning thus making two calendar day charges. Staff did not know English but was very nice and helpful. It was very clear that they were policy bound and the money was not going in her pocket. For two pieces it was RMB 80 (20 per piece per day). Fortunate my English to Chinese translator phone app T Mobile One Plan and extra RMBs I had kept hoping to defray such unexpected situations helped a lot to make handling this situation easier. Otherwise I would have been much more dismayed :( But all in all I was impressed by the Airline Crews’ hospitality and Airport staff professionalism :) despite the fact that I don’t they get paid as much as most of their western counterparts. I read that a new Quingdao airport is on the cards in 2019 or so and that can change the situation. So I have mentioned a date at the start of this comment to make sure future readers have a time context too."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Just do yourself a favor and sleep. Even though the flight is shorter they still give you a meal and a bottle of water which I found to be nice."
Cons: "Seats were definitely a lot more cramped and there was no sort of entertainment aside from the window or magazines (but then again, makes sense since the flight is a much shorter one)."
Pros: "Decent in-flight entertainment and comfortable enough. Crew was okay."
Cons: "Booked a speciality meal but they weren’t able to provide for all meal services. Why bother offering then?! Link to view connections, etc, didn’t work...would’ve been useful to review that info before landing. Online check-in didn’t work even though email notification was sent the day prior to the flight."
Pros: "On time, nice plane, decent food and very efficient service. Price is reasonable."
Cons: "The 1 hour delay for take off"
Pros: "Plane was loaded quickly, and efficiently..pulled away from gate a little ahead of schedule. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food just Ok...bread rolls always served at the end of the meal,instead of with the meal."
Pros: "Tons of food! I've never been full off airplane food, haha"
Cons: "lack of leg room but I'm too poor for 1st class"
Cons: "Our flight got delayed and didn't leave til 2am we were supposed to leave at 9"
Pros: "Everything was great! The time and the timing of the flights we took couldn't have been any better. I really like the transitional time between the time zones. The crew were all really wonderful except for one minor thing. Boarding was well organized. We were really impressed."
Cons: "There was just one minor thing. The stewardess that was giving us the bread almost at the end of the meal suddenly got impatient (?) and we think rude. I was with my husband and son. Our son was very sleepy and wasn't being very clear in responding whether he liked a bread or not. So as the stewardess was standing there waiting for us to figure out whether he wanted a bread or not, my husband said just to give it to him instead (he hasn't had one). She dropped the bread on my husband's already used food container (plate) with a very obvious attitude of impatience. Mind you my husband is a veteran with a severe case of PTSD. Flights already make him anxious let alone getting this sort of treatment. It was good that he had taken his meds prior to boarding and that made it easier for me to calm him and not make a scene. Otherwise it could have been a very ugly experience. It is for this one reason that I couldn't give an EXCELLENT review on this segment of the flight."
Pros: "No I didn't like nothing"
Cons: "I ordered veg food but they said sorry they don't have"
Pros: "We Wer able to still leave same day Just notice staff were very professional even though I've seen people raging with anger they remained calm"

Cons: "Need more room"
Pros: "Check in Very easy when you are sky priority. Plane was clean. Easy boarding proceeds."
Cons: "You cannot use your phone in airplane mode. I have my books on my phone and I wasn't allowed to use it. iPad is ok but no mobile device. So silly."
Pros: "The legroom is better than on United."
Cons: "The meal from HK to Shanghai made me sick to my stomach. And all the food was bad."
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."
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"
Cons: "Seats, food, English non-friendly app and website"
Pros: "Food was decent although would have been tough for vegetarians. Entertainment options were limited. Staff and boarding process were quick, painless, and no problems."
Cons: "Comfort level was pretty bad for a 13 hour flight. They only had three lower seat areas for a row of four seats which makes no sense. Also, you were not allowed to access your mobile phone even in airplane mode on any of their flights which seems like it's a rule from the 20th century."
Pros: "The movie selection was awesome, loved the fact they had German titles as well."
Cons: "Where do I even start? Our original flight in Melbourne was cancelled. Luckily the woman in line behind us got an email alert, but we did not get anything. China Eastern does not have a ground crew in Melbourne, so Dnata staffs it for them. We queued for 2.5 hours to be told we would not be flying out until the next afternoon, and they could not tell me when I would get back to Chicago, but was promised when we returned the next day, that we would have full flight information. Gratefully we were put up in a Quest hotel (which I highly recommend) for the night. The next day we queued for 2 hours and were told we'd find out about our connecting flight in Shanghai as they couldn't give me any other information, but gave us each 14 AUD for lunch. After an hour delay we were finally on our way. In Shanghai things were a mess. We were constantly diverted to this line and that, no one knew what was going on. Finally we were directed to the proper place, and after 3 hours (not an exaggeration) of standing in line we found out we could not leave for Chicago until Wednesday (by this time it's Tuesday morning about 4 am), because they only fly to Chicago every other day, and we had missed our 11:40 am Monday connection due to the cancellation in Melbourne. They paid for us to be in a hotel that was 30 minutes away from the airport, and paid for the meals as well, and gave each of us 1000 Yuan. There was very little information or communication on the airline's part. I told my friend that I was flying China Eastern and she said she'd never ever fly with them, and now I understand why. I have to return to Australia in a month, and trust me, I will be looking at other options. I wish the staff had been able to help those of us who were stranded, perhaps booking other flights with other airlines, being more sympathetic, flight vouchers, something. They made us feel like "we" were inconveniencing "them." Such a nightmare. I know those of us on that flight were all in agreement, trust me, we had a long time to talk about the service."
Pros: "Ok, staff was good, some passengers, not."
Pros: "Air china has the worst service I have ever ran across and I have been traveling for years! The changed my flight a week before my flight out and rescheduled it to miss my connection flight with them. I spent multiple hours on the phone on hold waiting to talk to an agent and they did not pick up. I emailed them.... no response. Finally I went to the airport and the told me the best they could do was get me to my destination 3 days later or I could buy another ticket. Then they lost my bags on the way back. I doubt I will ever get my money back from them despite the fact I spent an additional $200 to get to where I was flying... avoid them if you can and if another air line is a few extra bucks more it my be cheaper in the long run"
Cons: "Entertainment Food"
Pros: "PVG makes boarding bridge with shuttle bus."
Pros: "Completely pleasant and satisfactory in air."
Cons: "Poor inter carrier baggage communication and change over, delayed flights caused overnight stay in a hotel in Shanghai out of pocket, terrible spoken English in Vancouver and Shanghai. Changes of flights in both directions caused huge increases in travel time. On the ground ruined my experience. Cost me out of pocket an additional $175 CAD and at least 24 hours round trip extra time."
Pros: "service was ok"
Cons: "While the service was subpar, the food was bad, we were late to depart and the weather caused us to land unexpectedly. When we arrived 3.5 late, after trains had stopped running, there was no compensation or information at all. Meanwhile the two other flight carriers that were also delayed due to weather had tables set up upon arrival for their passengers to receive help immediately. This was completely unprofessional and unhelpful. Although our flight was relatively inexpensive, I will not choose this carrier ever again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours with no information provided...twice"
