I was happy but not blown away but the carrier. I was spoiled last time I took a 14h trip to Japan on JAL in a dreamliner. That was amazing. This was about what I'd expect on a flight in a 737 to Chicago from Boston, but it was about five times longer! At least they had good food and the entertainment options were great.

It looks like economy starts in the 30's - so my seat 35K wast actually just a few rows in, not in the rear of the plane as I would have expected (in the States). Luckily I looked up when I was only at row 37 and could sneak back to my seat real quick!

The checkin counter experience was not good. I had business class tickets but was checkin at an Economy counter resulting in my boarding pass not being for business class so when I went in to immigration lines and throughout the rest of the process I did not receive priority that Business class should have received. In addition when I enquirer about TSA preaplroval at the counter I was told Chicago does not have preaplroval at Terminal 5 but in reality passengers with TSA-pre were being sent through the lines without having to take off their shoes and laptops etc. overall the checkin process should have been much more informative.

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.

No one to assist my friends enter the plane. No one to help with hauling minor carryon baggage up the outdoor staircase. Very difficult and no offer at all for anyone in a party of six to help. No lift and no one offered assistance in business class to help at all.once on the plane service was outstanding. Passengers in 70s and 80’s and no knowledge of the need to to climb stairs and without any assistance. Attendants watched the elderly struggle.

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.
