everything has much improved from my previous flight from LAX to BKK about 1.5 years ago. cabin was still a bit cold, but flight attendants were able to give me an additional blanket. they ran out of blankets last time i flew on China Eastern. entertainment was higher quality, food tasted better and snacks were available throughout the flight. boarding was also much more organized compared to last time which was like a angry mob scrambling to get on the plane.

We didn't crash, and the crew spoke some English.

The seats were uncomfortable, the movie options were limited, I couldn't get English subtitles on e flush movies which I needed because the only headphones one could use were the provided ones (due to the jack), but the sound quality was so poor and airline so loud that I couldn't follow. Also there was no menu or schedule to anticipate meals, and I was left hungry even with what was provided (14 hour flight). Certainly not Emirates.

Nice wide seats, well run flight. Lots of food served, though very mixed quality. The unfortunate experiences described in the negatives of this review, do not repeat on the return flight.

In the fine print is the fact that the flight includes a stop in Shenzen. On the outbound flight this was a nightmare experience with Chinese immigration. Exhausted from a 14 hour flight, passengers had their passports taken away; were put through a bizarre 45 minute finger printing process using machines that did not work; and then left to wait for an hour or more with no information. The continuation flight was in another part of the airport - a very long walk; and it turned out not to be at the departing gate that was displayed on the monitors. We arrived at the indicated (wrong) gate with no guidance. Very nearly missed the continuation flight. Once in Xiamen, our arrival was late enough that the second floor of the airport was closed. There were no ATMs on the first floor; no way to get the Chinese cash needed to take a taxi to the airport. Fortunately a kind citizen agreed to exchange some cash, using mental calculations and sign language about the exchange rate.

I ended up wasting an entire day Monday and spent another $460 buying a last minute flight because I showed up Monday at 9am at lax to find out my flight had already left Sunday at 10:30pm. As you can imagine it was very stressful driving 2 hours in traffic to GET to lax early to only find out they wouldn’t allow me to board the 11:30am flight with China eastern because my flight was SUPPOSED to be with CHINA Southern Sunday night.

If someone could please call me to discuss the $460 I had to pay Monday evening and the day wasted Monday December 4th I would be grateful. I have booked with kayak.com in the past and have never had any issue. For some reason kayak emailed me the wrong boarding time and airline

I was very late to the airport and expected to have to make arrangements for flying the next day. The customer service agents on the ground at LAX still got me checked in on the flight and escorted me through security to the gate in record time. I am so grateful to them for that. The plane was newer and in great shape. Lots of entertainment and the crew onboard was very nice. My one complaint is that they expected us to keep our phones turned off the entire 14 hour flight! That really surprised me! Other than that one thing, I had a really pleasant experience and will feel confident flying them again in the future

No use of your phone is allowed at any time during the flight! I had to hide mine so I could listen to Spotify

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.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days.
