Pros: Economy seats are not comfortable on any airline. I wonder why seats in a car are more comfortable than in an airplane? The staff were very zealous and proficient. They were pleasant and helpful. The food was the best of any airline I have flown. I was very impressed with the biscuits!

Cons: I did not like riding the bus to my airplane on the tarmac.

Good 7.2

Cons: The crew was not very attentive compared to other times I have flown business class. Not very solicitous in terms of offering water regularly, etc. Also, surprisingly little food offered over a 14 hour flight from Shanghai to New York. A reasonable dinner at midnight, shortly after takeoff, then nothing till almost 12 hours later, and then not the hearty breakfast one would expect after that much time and on business class but a very small snack. Not very satisfying.

Okay 5.6

Pros: The ticketing and boarding process went well.

Cons: The staff was short and rude at times and the food on the return trip was the same two choices for the meals and "breakfast" was a smear of tuna on a huge bun -- basically mostly bread. The movie selection was old and outdated.

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: Nothing! Couldn't be worse. The crew don't care about passengers and can't speak English either. We had a very long delay for no reason. The plane landed at a different airport that it was supposed to and then the airline bussed us to the Shanghai airport. Terrible terrible operation...

Cons: Everything! First please hire flight attendants that can speak English. Then provide better food. Even with Chinese standards the food had a bad quality. The stewardess didn't even understand that airplane mode exists for cell phones. She screamed at me to turn it off. Entertainment was a disaster

Good 6.0

Cons: It’s no fault of crew that the flight is difficult due to length of time from Pudong to Vancouver! But the seats are too close for such a long flight and my tv only had one ear plug working (yes, we changed plugs to try to get it to work, but because the plug-in jack on the tv itself was broken, it just wasn’t able to be fixed during my flight), and the tv is the only thing that makes the flight remotely bearable!!

Pros: This flight was shorter but i felt flight attendants were still very attentive.

Cons: Didn’t have individual screens to watch movies. One movie didn’t have English subtitles. Not that i cared because I was in and out of sleep, just pointing it out.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
