The staff were great with my dog(golden retriever) really helped me... Also the service overall was fantastic best journey I have experienced yet travelling to China and I have lived here 8 years so probably 100 flights
Is there enough space? No choice of meals- only fish with rice (I hate fish); drinks served ONLY during drink service time (don't bother asking for one because that's what you'll hear); no personal entertainment center (6 hour flight with no movies); and Shanghai Pudong Airport absolutely sucks. The airport has spotty Wifi, terrible restaurants with worse service, and what kind of country doesn't allow Facebook!?! Pay the extra $100-200 and avoid this airline and airport.
Two of the flights were delayed. The first delay from Bangkok to Shanghai caused that I missed my connecting flight. It was a nightmafre at Shanghai airport. I was forced to go through immigrations and customs and rechecked for the next flight. It was a poor way of handling a passenger on a misconnected flight due to the airline fault.
The crew was friendly, kind, and efficient. I received curtious service with a smile. They even left me a note while I was sleeping, rather than disturbing me. When I awoke hours later, they still happily brought me food and drink!
My main complaint is the quality of the seats. They recline decently, but are some of the hardest, most uncomfortable seats ever. This, in my opinion is unacceptable for such a long flight. On this same trip I took 45 minute flights with 5x the comfort!
My husband and I flew from Chicago to Bangkok with a layover in Shanghai Pudong airport. The flight was comfortable. I enjoyed the food, and entertainment choices. The flight attendants were courteous and helpful.
No one answered any phone calls. I couldn't confirm my flight 24h before as recommended. My husband's flight was moved a day earlier leaving from Bangkok due to overbooking, so we called to have his flight upgraded but we couldn't reach anyone. We asked at the check-in counter for the airline to upgrade his flight but were told that we needed to call to do that. We did! But no one answered! The website was always down when trying to reserve seats. My husband and I were seated separately even though we checked in together on the last leg of flight from Shanghai to Bangkok and there were plenty of seats leftover that we could have been seated. The plane was not even full.
Loved the comfort of the A380, the big seatback t.v screen even in economy class & the on time flights for the most part. (Of the 4 flights I took, 3 were on time departures, and only one arrived late). The ground crew at check in were always incredibly helpful at LAX, ICN & BKK as well. I loved that they always confirmed I had a special meal request & willingly accommodated my seat request as well.
Limited entertainment to choose from. (Please try and mirror the amount of entertainment Cathay Pacific and Emirates have; especially for Bollywood films). Also, the cabin crew had very limited English proficiency & it was difficult to understand their English P.A announcements at times. In addition, please note that cauliflower isn't the only vegetable an AVML can be cooked with. There ARE other vegetables to choose from. Also, the fish in the SFML smelled strange. Please revisit the menu for both meals & try to be a bit more innovative with the taste.
I liked the planes that were used, very comfortable and excellent staff
- I received an e-mail from Kayak which said my flight was CANCELLED. I didn't enjoy having to call the airline company, Kayak, and priceline to find out whether the flight was really cancelled or just delayed.
- The 4 hour delay, which resulted in me missing my last lay over by an hour, which in turn had me waiting at the airport for an additional 8 hours.
