Flight was delayed. Food is not good. Crew are confuse and it’s not Japan airlines that I know of.
Had not flied in a while. Overall ok. But it is frustrating when there are multiple fingers in the equation. Jim
Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."
Pros: "The crew was great and entering and exiting the plane was quick."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable, but I feel like that is a comment for most planes that fly internationally."
Pros: "Flight went well and was on time. 2nd best experience for economy seat."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly"
Cons: "Continuous improvement"
Cons: "I might have missed it but the useful information of the weather of the destination was not announced this trip. Some pilots make the flight more personal with their messages with their PA system. No need to be interrupted a movie we are enjoying for the promotion of inflight purchase though."
Pros: "The meals were an experience in itself. It felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant."
Cons: "The seat cushions in economy class could be softer. My rear end was feeling it after the long 11 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff with excellent amenities ie: check in, seat space, food quality, movies to watch, music, ...etc."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about here. Both trips to Tokyo, Japan--to and from Japan have been enjoyable and drama free."
Pros: "FA service with a smile. All pleasant and nice to deal with. Windows are button controlled."
Cons: "Economy meal is not that great. Boarding should be by zone or by seat number."
Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent seats and comfort . Good food"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff on JAL every trip"
Pros: "Awefull I did get to use my ticket"
Cons: "Japan could have helped me change my name in my reservation to match my passport"
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The food could have been a little more mainstream"
Pros: "Prompt, friendly service. Clean aircraft with comfortable seats. Onboard meal for international flight."
Pros: "I loved the food and presentation. The service was excellent, very attentive stewardess."
Cons: "There was the boarding from Tokyo to New York, where the selected gate did not have a comfort room. You have to back upstairs walk for quite a distance to use the toilet. Inconvenient and time consuming lugging your things with you."
Pros: "Premium comfort seats are worth it especially on longer flights; totally recommend. Plum wine is a great add to menu"
Cons: "You need to call to reserve seat. Then was told I could only upgrade at the airport and not on the phone, risking to loose the few available premium comfort seats. Old movies. Poor red wine. Food still just okay."
Cons: "I’m flying internationa flight but, I can’t get enough or right answer from my question due to Luck of english language. I’m not perfect when it come to this language but I can communicate properly."
Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."
Pros: "Fantastic service, excellent food, state-of-the-art entertainment, always on-time and professional."
Cons: "Older plane had extremely uncomfortable seats for the lengthy flight (over 7 hours). Shorter flights of 3 hours or less would have been fine."
Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"
Pros: "Loved everything including entertainment selection and all the snacks left out as self-serve throughout the flight. Left and arrived on time from JFK to Narita"
Cons: "I'm picky about food and preferred the food to Tokyo on ANA to JAL. However, I take some responsibility for not making a special request pre-flight. I will do so for trip home."
Pros: "I fly with JAL business class and it was the best business class I have ever experience. The crew was amazingly helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wish they can pronounce English language better. Sometimes I did not understand what did they said. Including the pilot. I don't want to be an American brat, but I did not understand what they said."
Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."
Pros: "The service Japan Airlines gives is always the best service possible.They treat you like they need you and not the other way around.I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "It was the best flight and airline I have flew so far. The crew was extremely professional and very helpful, the space between the sits was great and I didn't feel cramped into the sit like on any other airline. Food was excellent also!"
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "very friendly and very helpful from checkin in to departing"
Cons: "some flt attendants didnt speak english or they didnt understand what i was saying. (but it was fine, i was flying on a Japanese airline and didnt expect them to speak english."
Cons: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"
Pros: "I was surprised that such a short flight was able to use the newest generation of the 737, the 800 series. While as cramped your typical 737, the seat backs are super thin to allow just that much extra leg room for my two-meter frame. As always, the cabin crew was lovely."
Pros: "excellent seat space and excellent in-flight service."
Pros: "The crew on Japan Airlines are exemplary! Very efficient, polite & service with a genuine smile made this a very pleasant trip. Also, I had recalled on a flight I had taken a long time ago, how impressed I was at how clean the restrooms were maintained. Well, the high standard has not changed. Very impressed & looking forward to our return flight home."
Cons: "Cannot say there were any negatives."
Pros: "A quiet, quick and on time flight in a small plane with a competent crew - just as expected!"
Pros: "I really liked my experience with JAL. The comfort and overall service of the flight was excellent."
Pros: "The service, the air hostess, love them all."
Cons: "Flight in Asia was better, because the plane was better, this flight needs a new upgrade on technology, other than that it was perfect."
Pros: "Great flights! Absolutely no complaints! And they have free alcohol with your meals! I didn't know that still existed in air travel these days but Kudos!"
Cons: "Nothing, keep up the good work!"
Pros: "The flight was really comfortable, the food was the best meals on the plane as far as I could remember. The stewardess were very helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everyone was professional and very friendly at the same time."
Pros: "Very comfortable with delicious meal!!"
Cons: "My sister’s checked in luggage was in poor shape when we got it in Albany. We noticed an outside compartment was unzipped. So we checked to see if anything was missing and a souvenir from Mexico was gone. Then we realized a zipper was missing from the luggage and then decided to check all the other compartments and realized her bag of jewelry was gone. The woman at baggage services in Albany told us Delta is not responsible for lost belongings. Also tried to tell us theft is not an issue because there are cameras everywhere. Well you are telling someone that is missing a bag of jewelry that theft is not a problem. Also, there may be cameras everywhere but I doubt anyone is going to review those cameras to see what happened. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "The crew had an amazing personality. They definitely enhanced my experience"
Pros: "The delta checkin desk were exceptional."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment"
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Cons: "Value for the price."
Pros: "I liked that I had a exit row seat"
Cons: "If I didn’t have to tap to my inner Usain Bolt to get to the gate in time"
Pros: "Inflight movies and charging stations at every seat at the delta Gates and at every seat on the plane."
Cons: "We had originally reserved a window seat and an aisle seat but when they changed our flight they put us by the window seat and the middle which we didn't like."
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Pros: "We eventually arrived"
Cons: "Then, in Atlanta, the flight was delayed 3-4 times, and our departure was more than an hour late. Overall, not one to be proud of, Delta"
Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations"
Cons: "Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it."
Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"
Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Free movies available in flight"
Cons: "Airplane temp never comfortable Airline staff not friendly Wheelchair service terrible"
Pros: "Crew was kind and responsive."
Cons: "Older plane so seats were very crammed. My screen was not calibrated correctly so I couldn’t rewind or pause movies. No charging option for phone. WiFi was spotty."
Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Nice equipment for the ride and pleasant staff"
Pros: "Gluten free options! We have celiac disease and nice you offer GF options."
Cons: "Seating was done at the gate Didn’t appreciate being placed near the bathroom when it was evident the flight was not sold out"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to make sure they got the plane ready as quickly as possible and get us to Jacksonville as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Delta lost the plane for over an hour. After already spending 10 hours in ATL because of an earlier delay due to human error I was extremely disappointed in Delta that my flight out of Atlanta was delayed by an hour because they LOST the plane and couldn’t find it or the truck to bring it to the gate. This kind of error on Xmas eve is embarrassing. Delta didn’t do anything for the passengers affected by this. I was dumbstruck by the apathy of the Delta employees at the gate (the exception was the flight crew, who tried to get the aircraft there earlier). Because Delta did nothing but make error after error I arrived at home 11 hours later than my original flight was booked for on Christmas Eve, missing Christmas Eve Services and family traditions. When I need to get somewhere on time I’ll never rely on Delta after this experience."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "Personnel was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Delayed half hour and no leg room"
Cons: "I has nothing to do with the flight it self! The original fight was cancelled from Minneapolis to Atlanta (with no notice) I found this out by calling!! I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and worked hard."
Cons: "Seats were very basic and not as good as the low cost carrier I normally fly out of the UK. Very old and noisy aircraft. Seemed little control over how much hand luggage passengers were bringing onto the aircraft."
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "When I got to the airport they were not helping me to get to the right place to get my flight I lost it"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Two Delta agents a kiosk assistance were not aware of the Hurricane Irma policy of waiving baggage fees to my destination. I informed them that the website indicated it would waive baggage fees to certain destinations if checked in at the airport before a certain date. Another Delta agent nearby had to show them a copy of the policy before I could get my baggage fees waived."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and quick. I like the coffee when I pair it with a biscoff."
Cons: "The boarding process seems a bit chaotic, but it didn't really detract from the overall experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Pros: "at least, i got to Haiti"
Cons: "delays + long flight."
Cons: "Read previous complaint"
Cons: "A flying chicken bus. The air conditioning was really loud."
Cons: "I'm not sure how you lose a bag on a direct flight from Atlanta to Denver, but Delta found a way to do it. They didn't even put my bag on the plane and had to send it with the next one coming. To their credit, they did drive it out to my house when it got here."
Cons: "I had a reserved Comfort Class Aisle seat, purchased at time of reservation and showing as my assigned seat through printing of boarding pass. At the gate, my seat was reassigned to a middle seat. This is a huge problem for me, as my back and leg injuries require the ability to stretch and move frequently. When complaining on Delta phone lines, I was told that the seat was needed for a Diamond member and therefore was "policy" to bump. Although I eventually received some compensation for the fact I paid more for the original seat, I remain very disappointed in Delta, if this is indeed the policy."
Pros: "On the flight I got on the 8:20 to Reagan the flight attendances were wonderful! Defiantly made up for me having a aweful time on the 7:20 flight. I loved your flight attendants on this flight!"
Cons: "So I arrived in Atl was on standby for the 7:20 flight to Dca airport I had already paid $50 for standby! I got cleared for this flight and bumped to delta comfort. I was super excited to finally get upgraded! Then the plane had problems we were then again delayed and had to deplane. We were told this would be a 2 hour delay. I proceeded to try an get on the next flight at 8:20 while asking about a window seat the lady told me I would have to pay an additional $19! Well I had already paid $50. So the nice lady put me on that flight after I had already asked for window seat. She put me in the middle seat! I get that planes have problems and flights are delayed! There was so much bad yesterday then good and I feel like delta should know. It's more and more bad everytime I fly! Please fix these problems!"
Pros: "Ease of travel"
Cons: "The food was horrible on the plane"
Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Pros: "Entertainment and comfortable seats"
Cons: "They could have given us some snacks or something"
Cons: "Crew could be friendlier."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Great attitude of the crew & staff! Similar feel to SW personable ,professional people."
Cons: "Thrifty Canucks are cheap on the snacks, both size & quality, but then it's a two-hour-nap-flight so no big deal"
Pros: "It was quite and smooth"
Cons: "I have never been so hot on a plane. Even with the air blowing on me I was sweating! It was crazy hot!"
Pros: "They got us late to Toronto with my little child and I decided to spend the night in TO. My child has fallen asleep and there ha No way we could make the connection no matter how much I rushed."
Cons: "Small aircraft last min bags check in etc. delayed flights Ground staff in Atlanta is good but in Toronto: very rude"
Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "The young competent Air Canada staff at the gate and her supervisor were kind enough to give me the last seat for the 11:45 am flight to Toronto on Dec 18th, 2017. After more than 24 hours stranded in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport due to power outage on Dec 17th, 2017, I was so relieved as I sat on my seat, when an air hostess asked if I would like a seat in business class. She said they randomly upgrade passengers to business class when seats are available. So it all ended well, I got home to Toronto safely in (business) class. Thank you Air Canada !"
Cons: "There were no Air Canada personnel to help us, inside the international terminal during the power outage at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport on Dec 17th 2017. It would have really helped, even if only one personnel showed up at the gate to provide support and some reassurance."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Pros: "on time, easy to board"
Cons: "no snacks at all . would appreciate some peanuts with my drink or something."
Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"
Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "Was forced to check my carry on bag, even though it was the proper size and weight."
Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."
Pros: "I got upgraded to business. I was very happy, because my day in Atlanta was exhausting, and that made the whole thing excellent. Harry Giles"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly & everyone was helpful"
Cons: "Nothing every thing went well"
Pros: "Had a great experience on Air Canada. Would not hesitate to use again."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The attendant at the checking was very friendly and courteous, the website information on the luggage weight was incorrectly worded and we had to transfer some of the clothing to a carrying on bag. The wheelchair attendant was very friendly and courteous she made my mother feel relaxed since it was her first time traveling alone as a disabled person."
Cons: "A snack should have been served. Only juices were served. An announcement should have been made for layover passengers to purchase food at the airport if they are unable to purchase on board with a card."
Pros: "Long dealy, bad customer service"
Cons: "Long delay, changed gate 4 times, worst service"
Pros: "The rest"
Cons: "My carryon luggage is lost"
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "Nothing! I was treated like garbage."
Cons: "Nothing! They treated me like garbage; the plane never left; I went on an inferiors third class airline from First with now refund; and they lost all of my luggage for over a week! I looked like a fool to my clients and peers!"
Cons: "All flights were delayed. makes for a problem to connect to the next flight."
Pros: "Crew were very nice, and seats had plenty of room"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Tv choices were excellent- made the time pass much more quickly."
Cons: "No snacks provided, just options for sale. Those looked interesting though."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on the way from Atlanta to North Bay. This was a expensive hunting trip that was planned in January with no return on the deposit. I got my bags on the day I was scheduled to leave. They had no way to track my bag and offered me $50. I had over $7000 of gear in the bag and I lost my $2600 deposit for the hunt. Not to mention the time a way from work where I just sat around in the bush doing nothing. On the way home, they lost my bag again. No one ever came to customer service desk and I had to call a number to India who was zero help. Terrible experience. Never fly Air Canada!!!!!"
Pros: "I was very impressed today when one of the airline stewardess went back into the Terminal waiting area to get a passenger's phone charge she left behind. We were all seated when the passenger noticed she had forgotten it and to her credit she walked back to the front of the plane to ask about retrieving the charge. She was particularly concerned because she had just bought it. She came back to her seat and was told they would see what they could do. To our surprise after the doors were closed, the stewardess came back to hand the passenger her charger. She was very grateful! Well done Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight attendants wet very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "The clerk helping with the boarding passes was very rude."
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Pros: "Service... comfortable sits"
Cons: "Delay in flight , long queue at Toronoto airport"
Pros: "Friendly staff every step of the way. Were always there and were always mindfu of your space."
Cons: "The woman that I was dealing with before the trip even began was incredibly rude and condescending! Talking down to me the entire time and didn't experience any patience whatsoever. She seeed to not know what she was doing whatsoever and was not helpful in the slightest. This is the woman in the desk leaving Edmonton heading to Calgary"
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendant were good and professional."
Cons: "There was an overbooking, so I gave up my place for someone else to travel in exchange of compensation. The flight back to Toronto from Atlanta was delayed by 2 hours and a half, which put me in risk to miss my connection flight. The plane was small and there was not enough space for mid size people."
Pros: "That there was no delays or anything, at any point, very easy."
Pros: "Video monitor did not work on ATL YYZ leg"
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Quietness of the airplane"
Cons: "The seat back was not comfortable for my back."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Cons: "No food. Beverage only."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada overbooked the flight, so even though we had purchased tickets well in advance, we were kicked off the flight and pushed back 7 hours or so, meaning we missed a planned layover in Istanbul and lost most of a day on our vacation. Additionally, after our flight schedule was changed, one of our checked bags was lost (left in Toronto instead of continuing on to Istanbul). I checked the bag on Tuesday, and it wasn't found and delivered until Friday, so I went three and a half days without any extra clothes or most of my toiletries. I know airlines (like all businesses) are only interested in money, and I know Air Canada isn't the only airline to do this, so I can't say I'm shocked. But it still boggles the mind how poorly customers can sometimes be treated. We all accept it as a cost of flying, but it's crazy to think that one can buy a ticket without buying a seat on the plane. It's like ordering at a restaurant and being told that, yes, you ordered the food, but you didn't order the dishes to serve the food on, so you're either going to have to wait or pay extra to get plates and utensils. It would be much more honest for the airline to say that your ticket purchases nothing but the *chance* to fly at the scheduled time. At least that would be straightforward."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and service was great. The Toronto airport waiting area was also good."
Cons: "The luggage drop line was terrible. Only few stations were open and they worked incredibly slow. At the Toronto airport, we were made to fill up customs forms even though we were set for international transfers. None of the questions on the form made any sense since we were not entering Canada but rather leaving for other international destinations. Because of this formality, we had to pass another line which took another 30 minutes. Furthermore, they denied me at the counter because my original check in crew was unable to print my second boarding pass for some technical reason. But, there was noone at the customer service desk to print a boarding pass for me. I had to wait another twenty minutes just for this! All of this happened in a "neverland" section of the airport that didn't even have any restrooms! This could really turn into a nightmare scenario."
Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."
Flew business class. Our luggage was the last to arrive at the belt; 15 minutes after the last bag. Sigh.
Cons: "MH hospitality has gone down. Those days they were the best of the best. Now, there is hardly any hospitality at all. Very disappointing."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Airport, sea side"
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't ask me if I need ice cream or any drink but they asked another seat of passages. It's not fair..."
Pros: "Luggage allowance."
Pros: "Cool and excellent service."
Pros: "Crew are nice,but the seat need to improve"

Pros: "Window seat was good for enjoy very wonderful outside view."
Pros: "Smooth process all the way from check in to seating to disembarkation"
Pros: "cabin crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats cramped; not enough space, especially for long haul. Provide more space! Earphones didn’t work. Could not enjoy entertainment. Seat would not recline. Slow checking. Not enough counter staff. Check in counter contractor staff inexperienced and held us up for over an hour due to unfamiliar"
Pros: "Crews were good."
Cons: "Seats were small and quite uncomfortable. luckily it was a short trip. If travelling long distance I ll have to consider a different airlines."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Good food. Comfortable seats even in coach."
Cons: "The pre boarding security was a mess and poorly managed in Kuala Lumpur."
Pros: "Friendly check in staff, thingking with the customer for aeat options."
Cons: "A very long queue, while only 2 counters were open."
Pros: "Nice thick comfortable blankets. Delicious food."
Cons: "Crews were only thinking of completing their tasks. I had been standing for 10 minutes in order to have the crews gave way. They were cleaning post lunch. I was told to wait till they were done."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was always with a smile in their face"
Cons: "Super crowded and not much room in between rows, I aspected a bit larger and more comfortable plane for an international flight"
Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate."
Cons: "Staff still very grumpy.. food is bad but much than flight leaving from Malaysia."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"
Cons: "Food was lousy"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and food was so-so"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Forced to check a carry-on used all over the world for years. Then they lose it"
Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."
Pros: "Acceptable in general. Food (ran out of option, only fish curry left in row 20's), enterteinment, comfort (empty seats)."
Cons: "Attitude by attendants can be improved."
Pros: "Over all flight experience ok, lack of boarding information and ran out of menu choice but rest ok."
Cons: "Arrived in one piece but my luggage didn't; flew from Auckland to Singapore via KL with a 2 hr layover; how luggage didn't make connecting flight is beyond me; maybe they just lose things"
Pros: "Crew were awesome. Could not do enough for you. Very personable too!"
Cons: "Security at Adelaide very slow and under resourced."
Cons: "I wasn't aware I was in Malaysian airline, I thought it was silk just as it was when I arrived... could of been a little clearer but other then that everything was great"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food is not good"
Pros: "Latest informtion about the weither"
Cons: "Flight Costume"
Cons: "Had to change gates last minute in Kuala Lumpur. Since security is at the gate, that meant going through security twice. When we went to the new gate there was much confusion among security staff as they were not informed of the gate change."
Pros: "Free beer and wine. For breakfast the egg dish wasn't bad. Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable after a few hours, not good for long flights. Seats have very little leg room so for someone over 6 foot tall it will not be comfortable."
Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"
Cons: "The long layovers with no hotel voucher from Malaysia air. That would be a big help especially for me since I travel alone. And not to familiar with hotel locations, taxis. I am concerned about my safety in another country..."
Pros: "It was a very good flight ."
Pros: "The staff is great"
Cons: "We had to wait very long for take off"
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "Staff are courteous"
Cons: "Departure was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Clean and entertainment good!"
Cons: "Food is mediocre, even for airplane food."
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"
Cons: "Lost baggage on direct flight"
Pros: "Although I only gave it 4 for comfort, that is mainly because it wasn't a fully reclinable seat which I don't think it's available on a 737. Otherwise the level of service from the staff was excellent."
Cons: "Relatively little to complain of. As noted above the lack of a fully reclining seat is due to the aircraft type in general. Otherwise no complaints."
Pros: "Flights seat is comfortable"
Cons: "Delay and boarding at very last minute."
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late with no terminal announcements of the delay."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Flight hub tried to sell me a Visa to go to Bangkok! Since you are in the travel business I would have thought that they would know that citizens of the USA do not need a visa to go to Thailand! The email your partner company sent me was strongly adamant that I needed a visa before being allowed to travel! I knew better that this was a scare tactic to make money! But many people probably wouldn’t know. I’m surprised that Kayak would be apart of something like this! Hmmm!"
Pros: "Crew is wonderful .they do everything in business class to make you feel comfortable"
Cons: "I will never fly China Eastern again. EVER !! I need to add an extra day or two onto our flight. We purchased business class flights so they are not cheap. In order for us to make a change they want $1700 each person, a total of $3400 to take the same flight two days later. The fee is the highest I have ever hear for the same flight class .. I will never ever use China Eastern again, they are taking advantage..I could actually buy a return ticket on another airline for cheaper than they want for a flight change."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours without advance notice. For a 4:30 am flight. Passengers were already at the airport around 2am. Only to depart at 6am. No sleep. No food and very uncomfortable. Would be better to give heads up ahead of time"
Cons: "Entertainment system needs the ability to have closed captions in English. It’s in Chinese all the time—can’t even turn it off. The sound system is very poor so captions would help."
Pros: "The crew was polite but service was not quite there. We pick a 2-seat layout so it was OK."
Cons: "The food was poor and only served twice. Once shortly after taking off and another a couple of hours before landing. In a span of 10 to 11 hours there was no offer of drink or food of any kind."
Pros: "Great Entertainment"
Cons: "Depart on time there was over 45 min delay without an explanation"
Pros: "The frights were pretty comfortable. They provided drinks and food in proper time. Crews were very nice."
Cons: "I wanted to gave 5 star if only some of my personal items weren’t missing from checked in luggage."
Pros: "Flight from Honolulu to Shanghai was great. Then problem on the transfer, we missed flight"
Cons: "We recd a text that said flight was delayed 35 minutes. We got to gate to find it wasn’t delayed. We were there at gage 45 min before the plane left but they said we were late, it was due to the text."
Cons: "I wasn't able to flight I didnt know my passport wasnt any good if it's going to expired in less than 3 months. I was off by just a day. I still cant believe I cant get my money back. My boyfriend and I were already planning to go this time and win December to Thailand. Also Vietnam during October s"
Pros: "Amazing crew for such a long flight. Nice to get fed too."
Cons: "On line check in could have been simpler"
Pros: "clean cabin, nice service, smooth connection"
Cons: "some of the crew didn't understand English very well, not much movie choice on board"
Cons: "I’m a short person and can usually tolerate smaller spaces but the space this time is way too small. Overhead bins were full very quickly."
Pros: "Short layover, very good price."
Cons: "Very obvious the crew (at least in my section) have a problem with Non- Chinese people. Their attitude changed to others as well as me when they are asked for something. Very noticeable!!!!!!"
Cons: "Missed flight due to delay and had to deal with rude staff for the rebooking. Around 15 of us got no real information and we’re just hoping for the best"
Cons: "Need to check baggage , so much trouble for no reason, it’s international flight -why can’t they check baggage once n for all?????"
Cons: "Towards the end of the flight attendants started yanking plugs from the monitor while watching the movie. A bit aggressive and not needed."
Pros: "It brought me to Shanghai safely."
Cons: "They kept moving my seat because families wanted to sit together!!! I ended up sitting on one of those rows where I do not get a personal monitor. And the flight was seven hours long!!! I hated it so much. If flight attendants can be more strict next time when it comes to these families who do not even wanna pay the extra charge to reserve seats, then that would be good."
Pros: "Check-in and boarding were hassle-free and efficient. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Food was passable, and attendants were quick to refill water and other drinks."
Pros: "good selection of movies"
Pros: "Planes were clean and relatively new."
Cons: "The flight from Delhi to Shanghai was three hours late due to bad weather wt Shanghai. China eastern agents at Delhi lied about the status of the connecting flight from Shanghai to SFO and made us start the journey knowing fully well that we will miss the connection. At Shanghai the agent and her manager were one of the most rude and incompetent folks I have come across - they took three hours to handle 50 passengers. And to top it the immigration folks were equally inefficient they took 3 hours to clear 40 ~ 50 folks for 24 hours transit visa. There were two agents and one supervisor. Do the math - 13 to 16 minutes per person. We stood in line for straight 6 hours. My wife had swollen feet for next few days. China may be great at manufacturing but service is surely not theie thing. Avoid Shanghai airport and China Eastern like the plague."
Pros: "But flight attendants made it very easy to board (checked everyone’s passport while we were still seated waiting to board plane before we were called up, no line)"
Cons: "It was ridiculous. Absolutely no compensation."
Pros: "Delay ex Manila was said to be 3 hours but was shortened. Looking at bright side."
Cons: "The reception in Shanghai did not at first permit me to connect on my flight to Rome. If I missed that I have a flight on Monday 11am to Geneva that I would miss. My shortened layover in Shanghai due to Manila delay was still 45 minutes but Inwas being asked to transfer and get another flight through the transfer desk. Luckily After a few minutes in line at the transfer desk, was allowed back on my original flight. However and unfortunately, it was due to another 2 hour delay. arrived Rome 815++ pm ISO 6pm."
Pros: "Staff very friendly"
Cons: "Choice of food. Very limited for business class. Movie selection very limited also."
Pros: "Food, service on board"
Cons: "Im not realize that my luggage is not direct to nagoya, so i need to claimed my luggage, re-check in and imigration in shanghai. I just have 2,5 hours to do all stuff. Thanks god i make it to onboard in time with help other passanger that let me do immigration check first."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "A wild adventure through China."
Cons: "The "flight" was a bus ride that the airline knew nothing about so we had to fend for ourselves and figure out how to get to Shanghai. Took a bus a taxi and then another bus through China speaking no Chinese and not really having any idea of what was going on and if we were going to make our next flight. It took us about 6 hours of travel and headache and the airline didn't cover the taxi or bus charge."
Pros: "Don’t expect to be treated too well, it’s no bad but let’s face it Chinese service customer is just okay"
Cons: "There was only one meal, not very special."
Pros: "Despite it being a large flight, we were boarded as swiftly as possible. Additional organization could have made boarding more effective. Great movie and game selection for in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. The airline cancelled our flight and rebooked us for another flight that would miss our connecting flight. When contacted, we were told they would not assist us and we would be charged to adjust further. After endless back and forth on the phone we were rebooked for free BUT an additional 6 hours were added onto our trip. While aboard the flight our crew was very dismissive. When asked about food being served we were given multiple different answers. At first we believe this was due to a language barrier. Yet we found a stewardess who was fluent in English. When we (along with a couple behind us) asked her what is on this sandwich (we do not eat pork and the wife of the couple behind us has a seafood allergy) we were told, “don’t know what’s on the sandwich. Maybe chicken. Maybe fish. Have your husband try it and tell you”."
Pros: "Affordable Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Crew Rude/Not Responsive Smoking Smell REALLY BAD Super cramped seats.... really really cramped"
Cons: "Light and table were broken."
Cons: "It was just delayed without any announcement."
Pros: "Good price, nice staff"
Cons: "It's always the same food and just one served beef rice! It would be nice if they could vary the food menu."
Cons: "Wi-fi onboard but not accessible. Not allowed to use my phone even for listening to music. Was on a 9h layover in Shanghai Pudong. Terrible airport. Could not drop my baggage to get out of the airport as they only accept chinese cash and no working ATM. Was stuck waiting 6h30 before check-in and had to rush through security by saying I was late for the flight otherwise I would've missed it. It's nonsense that i have to rush when on a 9h layover."
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional. They were helpful when one of us left our cellphone in the seat pocket. I liked the red bean bread included with the meal."
Cons: "The thing that was very stressful was not seeing one of our checked in luggage cases after spending a lot of time at immigration. Only did we get the trunk back after another frantic passenger had to flail his arms, run back and forth from the luggage area, and even confront the baggage personnel. At the end of it all, three trunks magically appeared. At the end of a flight, the last thing you need is lost luggage. I'm not sure if this would be in reflection of the airline or the airport but many people will appreciate this not happening anymore. The entertainment screen was hard to see and no headphones were given. The food was okay, but I felt I wasted a lot of it because it wasn't appetizing. The beef was cut with a lot of fat and the fish ball plate was cold and went practically untouched."
Pros: "For the price of the flight I believe this was an excellent airline to choose. I your on a budget this is great. Cant really complain~ Food was good and the crew was pretty nice. I fell asleep for about an hour but the flight was pretty smooth overall."
Cons: "The plane was pretty small with no entertainment and boarding took a while but its understandable that we took a smaller plane for this flight since osaka and shanghai are only 2hrs apart."
Pros: "Managed to get a seat in a good spot which more legs soace"
Cons: "Chinese regulation forbid the use of any cell phone during the entire flight... even in flight mode!!! This is utterly frustrating and annoying, especially when the flight is 15 hours long!!! Also food was meat only, no possibility to get fish or vegetarian"
Pros: "Lot's of entertainment options on in-flight console. Also, the price point was very reasonable."
Cons: "The crew often ignored requests and not enough meals/ snacks were served for such a long flight."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to travel on the 777-300 new config business. Pyjamas to boot, never had those in biz class before. Hats off to China Eastern, exceeded my expectations and beat the competition. Gutted my flight is with Lufthansa from Shanghai to Frankfurt. Will definitely be looking to fly with them again. Can't comment on economy as didn't get chance to look around."
Pros: "No personal entertainment devices - you can't use your phone to read a book or listen to music. back to good old fashion travelling. Make sure you prepare yourself with a book and junk food to cope"
Pros: "The service was overall very good/"
Cons: "The food was below grade with bagged food for the Shanghai to Bangkok leg."
Pros: "Flights were on time and able to have 2 checking baggage"
Cons: "Their english is so bad that you have a lot of difficulties to understand them."
Cons: "It's always delay..."
Pros: "Overall I would avoid China eastern in future. Th food was terrible."
Cons: "I had a bad experience to fly with China Eastern Airline. My flight on 04th Aug 2016 from Singapore to Shanghai was delayed for 03 hours. The flight number was MU544. Supposed to fly at 00.55am, but the flight was delayed until 3.30 am. Plus, I had to pay $60 for changing my name as the staff at Singapore Airport Said that my name didn't put in sequence. My name in the passport: Mai Thi Hien. But on the system was: Mai, Hien Thi. They said I had no choice if I didn't pay I can't take the flight. So, I had no choice to pay S$60 for changing the name in order to board the flight to Seoul. I have been with other flight before, but that kind of things never happened to me before. My husband had helped to book a flight before, instead of putting my real name, he put my English Name but nothing happened at that time. The staff of that airline was a good assistance they helped me to change the name without charges. Then, when I arrived the Shanghai airport. I had to wait to change the flight & went through immigration to checkout & waited to get the luggage & then check on the immigration again. All the procedure made me feel so frustrated. On 10th Aug 2016, I returned back to Singapore, then the flight was delayed again about 1hours & half. Luckily, they changed us to another airline: Asiana, which was a direct flight to Singapore. I was really disappointed about the China Eastern Service"
Pros: "Flight was delayed, hardly any communication."
Cons: "You can barely understand what the staff say on public announcement system. They need to hire more professional staff, who have experience of running an airline service. Most staff appeared de-motivated."
Cons: "There were only 2 check-in desks, despite checking in online, I still queued for an hour."
Pros: "The plane was fine ad well ad The service"
Cons: "Food is amazingly bad"
Pros: "I have travelled with china eastern from Tokyo to Fukuoka. My check in was aesy and travel was beautiful.I had not expected as this was my first journey,but the care was ultimate.We had no moption for Indian Breakfast but was taken care beautifully from Heart.Thank U,i wil not loose any oppurtunity to fly with China Eastern"
Cons: "Some more options of meal might have been there or some fruits plates.desert should be optioned for other people ."
Pros: "Not much. There was a beef noodle dish that was enjoyable for me, but my wife hated it."
Cons: "I didn't like that the airline would not check my bags to the final destination since the 23 hour 50 minute Shanghai layover was "too long" yet the airline refused hotel accommodation because the layover was not long enough (10 minutes too short). I didn't like that the airline put an overweight snorer in the window seat. I did appreciate the crew finding my wife an alternate seat. This guy was a spreader and was encroaching on my wife's space in an inappropriate way. The entertainment was dated and boring. I did not like the boarding process which was disorderly and chaotic. Little or no queuing and no zone boarding except for first and business classes. Economy was every man for himself. The situation at Shanghai Pudong Airport was also chaotic and little help from the airline navigating through a procedure we did not understand and were not forewarned about. Ditto checking in for our onward flight. Never again."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was short, once it finally took off."
Cons: "The plane was extremely late, and we had to sit on the plane for hours on the ground before take off. This caused me to miss a subsequent flight."
