Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew took a while before can attend to our needs. Foods are the same choices very limited to beef and fish. Breakfast items are only cereal and porridge. We are seated behind two small kids who constantly kicking my seats."
Pros: "Crews are always super well trained."
Cons: "Between continental flight need more movies, in my perspective"
Pros: "A comfortable flight, with fine service."
Cons: "The connectioning flight was slightly late, but just enough to make it a mad dash through customs and to the furthest possible gate on the opposite end of the terminal. Not within the airlines control, but unnecessarily hectic"
Pros: "Crew, Food, Boarding, Entertainment."
Cons: "My husband and I sat in row 30 (center & aisle). I sat in the center. As soon as the plane took off, we all heard a dog bark nonstop. The lady directly in front of me had brought a dog!! We felt terrible for the person to the lady's left and right. And then in the middle of the flight her dog pooped all over the floor! And the poor Stewardess' (they were SO wonderful) had to clean up the mess. Then the lady had to clean up more pee and poop and left all that mess right in front of my feet and handbag (which I put under the seat)! I had to hold onto my handbag and shoes the entire trip bc it was touching the pile of dirty paper towels! I couldn't eat the meal due to the gross situation, and I was very upset about this situation all bc of this one lady who had no regard for the ppl around her and behind her! I don't know what your policies are concerning bringing a dog on a plane, but it ruined my flight. I love Korean Air, and love the service and the stewardess' professionalism and attentiveness, but this has made me think twice about flying anywhere on Korean Air!"

Cons: "the crew on this flight didn't timely deal with two situations I had. it took twenty minutes to get a cup of tea and I had to ask twice. then I dropped my nighttime mouth retainer on the floor and it also took twenty minutes and two reminders to have them sterilize it. My previous flight from JFK to Seoul was very good not this one."
Pros: "The entertainment system and choices were top notch!"

I had to pay an extra $350 to get my flight rescheduled. I thought that due to bad weather, customers can get flight rescheduled at no extra cost? As soon as I rebooked my flight, both airport in Houston closed anyways. So is this still my fault and did I have to still pay an extra $350??"

Cons: "Food and entertainment could better"
Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"
Cons: "Movie catalog needs to be expanded"
Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."

Pros: "- Friendly staff. - Excellent service and boarding easiness. - Kayak's excellent price."

Pros: "Both segments Houston to Narita and Narita to Vietnam were pleasant. The seats are spacious, food was fine (nothing exquisite but good enough!). Flight attendants are very attentive. Waster and snacks were provided between meals."
Cons: "It was difficult to understand English announcements on board. Also there wasn’t adequate instructions in Vietnamese. Majority of passengers are Vietnamese family with small children. My suggestion is that instructions in Vietnamese should be made more often to avoid chaos particularly when deplane."
Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"
Cons: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."
Cons: "We both - Wife and me - had to pay around 200 USD for TWO Extra Suitcases in spite of both being an ANA Flying Miles Members. Hence What is the uet of these ANA Miles Club (AMC) Membership? Remains an EYE-WASH................................."
Pros: "The price was cheap ($100 for 2 people), and the service on ANA was great."
Cons: "Plane was a bit noisy, and it was a little confusing as to when we could board (but it was okay)"
Pros: "ANA great service, as always, outstanding work! The flight attendants so pleasant. American, Delta, or United can't pull off this kind of service."

Cons: "Limited entertainment options for kids."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "As my other flights with them, the crew is so friendly, the planes are nice and pretty good movie selection. Also nicely organized and they apologized profusely for the hour delay. I wish all of the American airline companies would learn from them! Great beverage service too, even when people are sleeping they quietly come around for us who are awake."
Cons: "The food for vegetarians is not very good. But they feed you a lot and you won't go hungry!"
Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
Pros: "Nice smile and service. Food is good as well"
Cons: "Arrived later than schedule"
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"

Pros: "The plane wasn't that full so I had a lot of space."
Cons: "the seat itself is still uncomfortable to put in the extended position to relax. Plus the headrest doesn't move very well so it's hard to get a comfortable head position when trying to sleep. The crew took forever getting everyone on the plane I have no idea why it took so long considering they're worn so many people on the flight. The food wasn't very good except for the marble loaf."
Pros: "ANA is a great airline with a decicated group of professional. I love flying with them!"
Cons: "Can't think of one thing."
Cons: "Wifi is a rip off. I bought 1 hour of wifi and didnt last for 1 minute. Really hoping that i can get a refund for it"
Pros: "Everything excellent"
Pros: "the place. new. lots of space for the legs. air inside the plane was better than others."
Cons: "kosher food is a no go. you need to improve this. also to hold fruits for vegi clients."
Cons: "Flight was moved to6 am, 4 hours earlier than scheduled. Found out less than 24 hours before flight. ANA refused to rebook on an available flight leaving at the original time. Disappointed (and tired)."
Pros: "Ample legroom and there is a good selection of food."
Cons: "Was on overnight transit and I was surprised to find out that the airport closes at 11pm and there was no transit lounge inside the airport. It was too late to book for a hotel outside the airport so had to stay at the meeting point area with other passengers."

Pros: "Nice crew, clean lavatory"
Cons: "Had a chance to select seats only for return flight Seats were too narrow"
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "Great service, I'd definitely fly again."
Pros: "Great seats in business class. Lots of privacy. Great service as well."
Cons: "American style Food could have been better. Didn't try the Japanese food."
Cons: "Wifi should be free"
Pros: "Great star wars vessel. Very attentive staffs and flight attendants."
Pros: "Our seats did not recline, but were locked in the fully upright position, making it impossible to sleep. If this is policy for ANA, many customers will go to other airlines."
Cons: "Seats in the exit row did not recline, making them uncomfortable and hard to sleep in."
Cons: "We were delayed, but I can't say it was the airline's fault."
Pros: "I liked my seat. It was in the first row behind first class. The ticket lady was very nice and patient"
Cons: "I was very frustrated because I thought I had 90 minutes between flights but by the time I got my luggage it was too late to get my scheduled plane. This forced me to wait two hours for the next plane after I had been on a plane for 13 hours."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Good guidance"
Cons: "There's no boarding zone?"
Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."
Pros: "Large space"
Cons: "Food must be better"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Pros: "crammed seats, meh food first experience with ethiopian, wasn't great"
Cons: "There was a disruption with the audio system."

Cons: "The entertainment could have been better but overall was not too bad"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"
Pros: "Not stopping in Blantyre"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable. They forgot my food and drink. The attendant sneezed on me without covering her mouth, my tv didn't work. The plane was dirty. I asked to be moved up to any of the 10 open seats in business and they said they can't. It was actually one of the worst flights I've ever taken anywhere in my life."
Pros: "I have only flown one better airline.....Emirates. The crew service was unbelievable. Wonderful experience. I have a new primary international travel carrier!"
Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Cons: "The headphones weren’t working and boarding at Addis was very poor. They should have more personal when checking before the Gates"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it. Connecting flight left before we arrived to Addis Ababa. Customer service tried to encourage the thought that putting us on a different flight was a courtesy..."
Pros: "Meal service plentiful. They kept the bathrooms very clean"
Cons: "This plane seemed older not as spacious or as clean as planes on Ethiopian I've traveled on before. Horrible film selections, and it's the same coming and going."
Pros: "service very friendly"
Pros: "Sleeping most of the way"
Pros: "their business class was very good and a huge difference than economy, well done"
Cons: "the seat space is the smallest I have seen in economy. i took one sector economy and the other business. no blankets for guests"
Pros: "Changing my flight at office in Lalibela, agent was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over one hour and NO explanation was given.. nothing, passengers kept approaching the gate, No one would give them an explanation as to why flight is delayed, when it was departing, nothing , we just sat and waited No communication at all"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "New aircraft 777 from Boeing"
Cons: "Food was so poor. Only option was chiken"
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Cons: "Comfort level and food."
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. Pleasant crews"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Pros: "TIME KEEPING"
Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."
Cons: "We were treated poorly at Kigali airport. Airport and Ethiopian Air staff provided horrible service. Completely unacceptable."
Cons: "same flight crew"
Pros: "Dreamliner is a great plane"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make my connection. Came 2 days later though."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the flight was pleasant"
Cons: "There is racketeering syndicate in Guangzhou Airport exploiting passengers only on ETHIOPIAN AIRLINE after check-in."
Pros: "I like it when I was ushered to Sheba Mile Lounge to relax after a long flight from Dulles. And the food served was really a plus."
Cons: "I was pissed off because I should have been given a place to rest provided I had a 9 hour layover. The flight to Nairobi was delayed making me wait more longer with no clear communication. We have to board the plane in a different gate not the gate we were supposed to use hence causing alot of unneccesary movement which was tiresome. I hope there will be improvement in the future on this timing issues. This is not my first experience but 2nd one"
Cons: "boarding announcements difficult to understand toilets not kept clean - not enough for size of plane stewards just OK - understaffed for a full 787 food mediocre - definitely better on other carriers to Africa spent 21 hrs in one plane from JRO to IAD in part caused by a 5 hr mechanical repair in Dublin pilot lead us to believe repair would be quick but it wasn't overall my worst international flight out of several dozen I will not fly Ethiopian Air again"
Pros: "this part of the flight was not a pleasant one. the crew kept passing me over no matter how much I called. but they seemed more attentive to their native people (Ethiopian) because they spoke the same language. this was frustrating, the entertainment did not work for the entire flight, thank God I had my Bible to read...."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - but a bit of confusion for my family."
Cons: "My 3 year old son was originally placed away from the rest of our family. Obviously we were not going to allow that. Our 1 year old was to have access to a sleeping carriage but to fix the problem with our sons seat they moved the rest of us to the center of the plane. (A spot with no carriage placement). This was not resolved - and we ended up holding our daughter for 17 hours."
Cons: "I was served the same food repeatedly over the more than 20 hours flight from Douala to washington Please introduce varieties. I flew Ethopian in August 205, in February 2016 and in April 2016 and the films were not updated Also introduce more business audio books for listening."
Pros: "Great crew in business class!"
Cons: "Wifi was terrible, entertainment is below average and angle seats for a 12 hour flight is sub par. The food was so so"
Pros: "Food was good, on flight entertainment was good, crew was friendly and accommodating. No major complaints! I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very impressed"
Cons: "The basic economy was snug but I was okay with it. I only wished my seat reclined a bit further but I was up against a back wall so others in further aisles up had much better reclining distance."
Pros: "the entertainment was okay"
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."

Cons: "In-flight entertainment system could have more English content."

Cons: "Breakfast was not nice. On line check in could have been easier."
Pros: "The dinner and lunch service was weird as missing components of the both services came when we were finished eating .. Breakfast was much better"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was very clean. Crew were courteous. Food was good. Spirits selection was good. China Eastern lounge in Shanghai is excellent, with a nicely run kitchen that feeds lots of people. Lounge has a very clean shower facility. Overall, excellent value for money."
Pros: "The China Eastern Airlines website is always down. It was impossible although we had seat numbers, they changed our seats numbers and we all had to seat separated, including our 12 years old daughter."
Pros: "I was hesitant at first to book through a 3rd party website, there were a lot of variables for me. I’m the kind of person who loves the security of knowing that my plans are concrete. I read so many horror stories of random cancellations and other headaches. As long as you know your dates are set in stone and you don’t have to adjust anything (I had no changes) then I think you’ll be perfectly fine! :)"
Cons: "While everything worked out perfectly for me the only draw back for me was just airline logistics, because I purchased through a 3rd party vendor I was unable to check in early. I love having the security of checking in early to avoid the lines and stress at the airport but everything worked out great. I was even able to select which seats I wanted prior to my trip."
Pros: "Crew, Crew, Crew are very hospitable and nice"
Cons: "Delay 45 mnts in boarding & take off from Guangzhou"
Pros: "Food is bad.. mostly for Chinese people"
Cons: "Service and good"
Pros: "Last minute seating was good - got a window seat with an empty seat between me and another passenger for the long flight. Big bonus."
Cons: "Flight was late getting out of the gate and there were only 2 lavatories working (out of 5) for the entire economy section of plane. No drink service except for with the one meal served during the flight - which was okay by me, because who wants an extra trip to the bathroom when the lavs aren't working?"
Pros: "The actual plane, the entertainment, the likeability of the crew members"
Cons: "The food is way below average for an intercontinental flight such as this route: needs better quality, options and for 15 hrs flight, needs to come more regularly."
Cons: "We didn't land in Clark but landed in Manila instead, 3hours away from Clark."
Cons: "Boarding time delayed by an hour. Take-off delayed by an additional hour on top of that previous hour. Mediocre food. No usage of ANY electronic device - even in flight mode. Strange. PA announcements contradicted flight attendants messages. They didn't understand. Crew's English was pretty low, but they were nice. Airport in China (immigration) was uugh... I can't."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "Many times in China, planes stop on the tarmac and have passengers get off the plane, board a bus, and enter the airport at a ground level entrance. This flight we were hopeful of actually getting off at a proper gate. We pulled up to a gate, but in true China form, we didn't actually get to enter the airport from the gate. We exited the plane as if we were going to enter the airport from that gate. However, we were guided away from the airport entrance down a set of stairs to board a bus to be transported no more than 200m to a ground level entrance. I wish I was making this stuff up!"
Cons: "I fell and broke my collarbone, called to change my ticket and no one would help me. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Cheap The plane was new and in good condition."
Cons: "Service was so so. They are a bit cold. The connecting flight I had to make was too tight - so I had to run to the next gate. Even if in airplane mode, you can not use a phone at all. I've never experienced this on another airline."
Pros: "boarding, entertainment, flight, and crew were pretty much the same as any other airline."
Cons: "airline did not pre-process the passengers for automated flight transfer at shanghai airport. everyone had to wait about 1.5 hours to talk to an agent to transfer"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The boarding process is quite efficient."
Cons: "My seat had a hole in it and a plastic part of the mechanics was protruding out sticking me in the leg the entire time. The food was not good. Wish they would start letting you use your cell phone in "airplane mode" on the flight."
Pros: "Price. On time. Good food."
Cons: "Not being able to use phone -even in airplane mode for games or entertainment. Bus ride from terminal to boarding in Shanghai"
Cons: "Kayak or JustFly put wrong ID number whole booking the flight. First 2 segment I had no issues buy 3rd segment they denied to check me in and almost forced me to buy a new ticket. Check in Crew was rude and would speak to me in Chinese. I am a foreigner who doesn't understand English. They wanted me to call my booking agent in Canada, it was mid night in Canada."
Pros: "Fast, easy and comfortable."
Cons: "No internet acces in Shanghai."
Cons: "The 1 hour delay for take off"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly and courteous. Enough leg space"
Cons: "We were not allowed to use phones even in airplane mode. I thought that was stupid."
Cons: "In the end this flight was cancelled after being incrementally delayed for 9hrs and 37 minutes."
Pros: "nothing, bad food, small uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "nothing, bad food, small uncomfortable seats was not compensated for a whole day spent stuck in pudong airport, with no timeframe for delay given, so we had to stay in the airport. 6 hours in the airport, then 2.5 hours waiting ON THE AIRPLANE"
Pros: "Free snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Not enough smiles and politeness"
Pros: "vessel itself was clean"
Cons: "flight took off an hour later than expected with explanation being "luggage was taking long to load" which made me miss my connecting flight in shanghai. once in shanghai, someone from the crew grabbed my connecting ticket, ripped it in half and told me to get a new flight with no direction of where to do this. New flight booked for the next day and then bused to some hotel for the night. overall the crew seemed terse and unhelpful. one flight attendant yelled at me on the flight back to san francisco when I asked her I could squeeze past to use the restroom. would not fly again and would not recommend china eastern."
Pros: "Cheap, economical option. Swift processes."
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~ 14-15 hr flight and food was good (you get 2 meals) and the crew was pretty nice. All of the seats have entertainment with many new movie releases to choose from as well as a variety of music and video games."
Cons: "a supposed direct flight of 3.5 hrs, took 8 hours to finally arrive... we werent even notified that the plane wouldnt be taking off because of "bad weather" at the destination until being on the plane already for 3 hrs! then after another 2 hours finally took off and a medical emergency with one of the passengers occurs on board! what is more, everywhere else international this airline allows 2 bags each, EXCEPT to the Philippines...and only 20kg at that!! And the ticket price being among the higher ones, why? Learned must ALWAYS CHECK BAGGAGE POLICY before booking!"
Cons: "No more suggestion."
Pros: "Nothing specific to like , except cone safely , flat bed ok"
Cons: "Food from Bangkok to Shanghai never given , Except water , so bad flight like old truck , Shanghai to New York flight bad experience with food"
Pros: "Crew was the best part of the flight, they were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Having to collect Checkin luggage 4 times in 1 round trip and having re-checkin everytime we board a plane. Boarding is a mess, feels like being herded like sheep. there is no order, people start lining up an hour before boarding. Having to go through Immigration 4 times in China, I was only there as layover, I wasn't visiting China."
Cons: "Poor entertainment options. A 14-hour flight with limited movie choices and inability to use some electronics is not fun."
Pros: "I feel comfortable and feels like I'm just on a bed ."
Cons: "The stewardess don't know how to speak and understand English well"
Cons: "The flight left late. The crew was useless. The food was terrible."
Cons: "It took us more than 18 hours to actually land on Wuhan"
Cons: "The China Eastern staff in Shanghai is useless and they need a long lesson on customer service. Thankfully the staff in Kansai (which are unaffiliated with China Eastern) were kind, considerate, and located my luggage in one day."
Pros: "The plane was fine ad well ad The service"
Cons: "Food is amazingly bad"
Pros: "The flight was exceptionally good for the price I was paying."
Cons: "There was no food choice in the in-flight catering. Everything available had fish in it. There was girl sitting next to me who was allergic to seafood and couldn't eat anything except for the bread roll. But I guess for the price, the service provided was really good."
Pros: "On board was peaceful and uncrowded. Actually provided dinner!"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled. Stood in a long line to re-book. Person said she put me on another flight and told me to go check in and check my bags. Person at check-in refused to do it until I go back to the first person and get my Ticket Number. Went back to stand in the long line again, she gave me the ticket number this time. It should be noted that the confirmation email did NOT provide the ticket number -- a big omission. After much unnecessary delay, entered crowded waiting area for many delayed flights. A cattle pen. An unusual plus -- they provided a take-out meal for those waiting through dinnertime. Flight was finally announced some 7 hours later. Crowded bus ride to the airplane. Not even third-rate service, very poor. No use of boarding ramp. I hope it is the last time I fly on China Eastern."
Cons: "Crew were not too friendly. Crew also did not control the passengers well. Many people were standing in aisles chatting when seatbelt light was on. There was a screeching baby for about 15minutes. Crew would forcibly push seats up while people are sleeping."
Cons: "Air China Service was horrible. I missed my flight due to an accident and when I got to the airport they were rude, and did not try to give me a solution. I had no money and I did not speak the language and the only solution they gave me was to call costumer service with the coins I have left. I will never fly with Air China again and I hope the rest of the people do the same. Horrible horrible experience."
Cons: "Long line at the security checkpoint"
Pros: "Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Movies could have more selection."
Pros: "Nothing it was awful"
Cons: "Everything they are racist."
Cons: "Gate change notice"
Pros: "Professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "My partner and I could not understand much of what flight attendants said in English due to their accent. Mediocre food. When the person in front came back, his seat leaned back and hit my laptop. I felt ignored once when a flight attendant appeared to have asked in Chinese if I need any drink."
Pros: "The plane from Guangzhou to Beijing was newer and very well designed business class seats, the convenient layout was exceptional. I think the meal ok but the staff was exceptionally friendly helpful and took good care of me. Also this aircraft had a large movie assortment, larger than usual."
Cons: "I think the meals are the only area lacking, again not easy to have pre made meals that are as good reheated."
Cons: "Everything needs to be improved, they need to learn from Emirates"
Cons: "Occidental snacks could be great"
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "See above..."
Pros: "Sometimes the flights are half-empty, meaning you can get a full row to yourself if you're lucky."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped for an international flight and half of the foot space was taken up by an installed box of sorts. The "foot rest" also dug into my upper shins the entire flight (I had it in the upright position, but I have long legs). The food was really bad, basically inedible. Not just on this flight but on all the Air China flights I've been on, and both food options are usually identical other than the option between fake chicken or fake beef or seafood. The flight is super structured (referring to my 13-hour flight), that you're not allowed to sleep when you want because they have such a regimented schedule of when to turn on/off the lights, etc. On multiple occasions the flight attendants have turned off my tv monitor while I'm in the middle of a movie just because it appeared I was sleeping. With my 1 hr layover in Beijing that ended up being less than 10 minutes due to a delay, I made the rush through security quick enough, but my bags did not and needed to be shipped to me a day later at my destination. Air China purposefully schedules flights with such short layovers, putting customers' travel at risk. Not a major issue, but the crew surprisingly also had pretty limited English on the Beijing-Washington DC flight. For connecting flights, I have no expectation of English language ability, because it doesn't involve travel to an English-speaking country. However, if you're flying to the US, you should expect to communicate in English well, at least one of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Because of the airplane delayed for one of my stop, I did not catch on my next flight and ended up bought another ticket, I was so disappointed."
Cons: "Meals need to be improved"
Cons: "Don't like the food at all."
Pros: "Nice carrier. Enough leg room and clean flight"
Cons: "Entertainment had very limited options. I had booked my flight through travel agent vayama. I would never ever recommend people to use that travel agency. It takes approx 35-45 mins to contact customer care, you are way better off taking the tickets from airline as they cannot help much if the tickets are done through agency and not airline directly. Moreover the agency charges additional fee over and above airline fees for any changes"
Pros: "It took me home."
Cons: "Mediocre food, obnoxiously long boarding and decent process, dated plane, limited leg room compared to competitor flights, apathetic attitude of staff and depressing mood on board."
Pros: "Staff was pretty nice. Meals were decent for airline food. Movies and tv show selections were good. During our very short layover in Beijing (1 hour) they helped us find our next flight with ease. Gave wine with dinner and beer the entire time. Even when I slept through meals they tried to find something for me to eat."
Cons: "Meal options could be better."
Cons: "Flying from iad,pek,mnl Air China lost our luggage and we get the next day at the air port. From mnl,pek,iad our luggage made it all the way.Our experience of customer service was not Good from pek to iAd."
Pros: "Crew very nice. Take off on time both times. I liked the movies and games, kept me entertained for 13 hours. The Air China plains, used for domestic flights, don't have any entertainment, even during 3 hours flights. This I didn't like in China."
Cons: "The seats in both international flights were not confortable. The audio port on plane from China didn't work well I had to keep holding it at all times to be able to hear on both ears."
Pros: "The aircraft crew was polite"
Cons: "The connecting flight left me. Had to stay in China for a day. Mumbai airport didn't communicate with airlines in China"
Pros: "Level of Service and the food."
Pros: "Everything was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Seats we’re lacking appropriate padding."
Pros: "Cozy pillow, blanket, slippers, hot towel to freshen up, lots of water offered, announcements in english, friendly crew despite language barrier, great selection of audio & video entertainment, food was decent"
Cons: "Overuse of plastic cups"
Pros: "staff are overall friendly."
Cons: "flights are delayed constantly, with connecting flights in short time span is impossible, luggage would miss and causes another delay"
Pros: "The staff was extremely polite, very accommodating, and willing to serve. The entire experience was overall very good and very contrary to what reviews said online. I would fly with them again in a heartbeat, far exceeded American standard airlines like Delta and American."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Drinks are served room temperature without ice. Staff was rude. Tried multiple different televisions that barely worked. They will not let you have your phone on even on airplane mode for music or games, etc. Would not take again."
Pros: "Comfort of the plane"
Cons: "cannot access the reservation or checkin at Air China site"
Cons: "Food, cleanliness of airplane"
Cons: "Food was bland. Very limited flight entertainment selection."
Pros: "I boarded smoothly and everything was fine there. Just for an international airline, I expected there to be more legroom."
Pros: "I hate that u connect me with poi t to point airline that i ly allows for a one check in bag"
Cons: "I ended removing ine of my two check in bag as Myabmar Bational Airline from Yangon to Bangkok only allow one check in bag. Poor connection on your end"
Pros: "I've read a lot of bad reviews of Air China. All my flights with them were excellent overall. They provided me with free transit hotels for over night layovers. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food is what you expect from any airline, mediocre. They offered a variety of multilingual movies, which I haven't seen with other airlines."
Cons: "Food could be better, but so could every airline's."
Pros: "Food is good. Crew is good. The free transit hotel saves a lot of trouble."
Cons: "Everything we're so bad."
Pros: "Good service . Spacious seating on the long flight from the usa"
Cons: "The delay in take off -two hours on the tarmac with all planes grounded with no reason stated. ."
Pros: "One of the four flights gave us water bottles and hot towels"
Cons: "Delays outbound and inbound and airport staff did not do anything to help with rearranging connecting flights even though it was known that we would miss the scheduled connection, and it was a disorganized inefficient process in Beijing that took over 2 hours of standing in line and the hotel they arranged for required sharing rooms and a 20min shuttle ride and by that point there was only 3hrs left before check-in time."
Cons: "everything, dont book to justfly, its a trouble"
Pros: "How can you expect people to sit on a plane for 13 or 14 hours and not supply in flight wifi. It is unthinkable and backwards."
Cons: "I will pay slightly more money to get a more comfortable seat and a little more room."
Pros: "Cheap, everything worked out."
Pros: "I'm happy to be back in the U.S. safely. Thanks to the crew for their expertise!"
Cons: "Coming back to the U.S., the food was not prepared well; something was wrong with the noodles. The salad didn't taste good. The fruits were okay The flight attendant was supposed to help me with setting the entertainment, but she never came back."
Pros: "Great price but crowded seating, no air flow, bad food, couldn't use the games on my phone, and the touch screen entertainment was a 50/50 chance of not working. The stewardesses were nice but spoke almost no English so helping us to find our connecting flight was impossible."
Cons: "Crowded seating, no air flow, bad food, couldn't use the games on my phone, and the touch screen entertainment was a 50/50 chance of not working. Stewardesses spoke almost no English so helping us to find our connecting flight was impossible."
Pros: "I got to USA! After 14 yrs overseas!"
Cons: "The crew was out there in space! I have to bring to her attention twice after serving a meal to the middle and aile passenger!!! At least! Pls! Can u smile! I feel that I was not welcome to the flight!!!"
Cons: "The airport in Beizing is not good for smorker. No place for smoking area. It's my second time flighting at Beizing and I should have to have 1 hr delay from the departure as always."
Cons: "Reccomend better vegetarian options"
Pros: "I like the movie choice on my screen at the time. However, I think I just got lucky on this trip and was able to watch great movies while on a 14 hour trip."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that after the first few hours of the flight, the bathroom on my side of the plane was unavailable for the rest of the flight. Something went wrong and it just stopped working."
Cons: "I lost one luggage and is still waiting for Air China finding it."
