Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."

When we got transfer no one told us we have only bearly 1 h to catch the next place to Germany. They assured us we will make it twice. We missrf the plane to Germany over 30 min. San Francisco airport horrible. No one gave us any information. They didnt know wfere is what. No one helped us."

Pros: "Crews were very friendly"
Pros: "The entertainment was wonderful the staff was nice."
Cons: "CONSTANT ANXIETY!! Our flight to Chicago was delayed. By 2 hours. This normally is not a big deal but it caused us to miss our connecting flight from Munich to Bremen. Then our new flight with a later time to Bremen was cancelled 20 minutes prior to boarding with no more flights to this area. The service center helped us redirect another flight to Hamburg, Germany. We had to fly to Vienna and then to Hamburg. We made it to Vienna after a 40 minute delay however, this delay caused us to miss our connecting flight once again. We were placed on an early flight the next morning to Hamburg which was an easy flight. When we got to luggage in Hamburg we noticed our luggage was missing. Supposably still in Munich. We then missed this flight and missed out on valuable time with friends who live in Germany."

Passengers who arrived later accessed directly through main terminal 2 to the gate. No entertainment on board at all. A321 plane is not comfortable. 15 min. delay no so bad."

Cons: "The seat-back screens were very annoying and not very responsive."
Cons: "Had requested vegetarian and was served vegan instead"

Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Pros: "Meals and service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "I liked when I thought I had my new booking."

Pros: "The flight was on time enough that I comfortably got to my connecting flight. It was still late and some other passengers were anxious they wouldn't get theirs. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seats were regular seats with the middle seat unused. The "meal" on this early flight (had to leave the house around 4:30am to get to it) was light. I'm glad I had the time to stop at the business lounge first. I don't recall any entertainment system, which isn't a big issue on this short flight."
Pros: "Leg room in Coach. Six bathrooms on a lower level relieved congestion and gave a place to stretch legs. WIne and cocktails included in meal. Crew was plesant."

Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The movies are ok."
Cons: "The seats are terribly not comfortable. I've been in many long flights with other carriers but these by far are the less comfortable seats ever. I tried in April the premium economy and the business class with the same carrier but still I'm disappointed and it doesn't seem that it will get better."
Cons: "The fact that they gave my Aunt a hard time about the tickets that was bought for her, because we did not know that when a heavy person books a flight that they need one ticket and a xtra seat, but instead of working with her because she had two tickets they were very rude to her and told her she was not going to be able to come to america that when she got to Manchester she would have to go back to Germany. We were never told what happened to the other ticket since it was not used."
Cons: "Very tight connection and a long distance between gates. Advising customers of this in advance would be helpful."
Pros: "More seating space on short flight then long flight bigger plane?"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "No leg room for a long 4 hour flight!"
Cons: "I was rerouted to Munich from Amman because I missed my connection to Berlin due to a late aircraft. Once in Munich there was no one at the Royal Jordanian booking desk to direct me. This was even after staff was pages by the airport help desk. On a hunch And out of desperation to get to my destination I went to another airlines desk and they found they had a reservation for me, made by Royal Jordanian. I was never informed of this and had I known sooner I wouldn't have wasted so much time waiting at their desk."
Pros: "Flight attendants were thoughtful and fun. There was what felt like endless food and drinks being deserved throughout the flight. The in flight entertainment had a ton of variety. Seats were spacious and the added pillow and blanket were a great touch."

Cons: "Late depart. Food was not what expected"
Pros: "MU had been terrible on this trip. My flight MU544 was delayed from 00:55am to 12:10pm due to weather in Shanghai as they said. This made me miss my next flight to HNL. Next day i’m flying to LA and hotel they put me in in shanhgai was terrible :("
Cons: "Could be honest about delay cause. Could put stranded passengers in better hotel rooms and not make strangers share a room. Could send bigger van so everyone and their luggages fit. (I have pics of packed van)"
Cons: "Just be ready for a long day but I liked the airline. It was my first time flying China Eastern."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and lack organization. Limited drink selections and should include club soda. Food was bland!"
Pros: "I liked the foods serviced and kind crews. The flight departed on time. The atmosphere of cabin was quiet."
Cons: "The services of the flight information and the slot of earphone was not working."
Cons: "Only at nanging airport they dont’t have Check through baggage all the passenger have to pass immigration and custom to get baggage and recheck in over ticket counter again they informed that they don’t have transit hall at this airport so for transit destination try not to use nanging airport"

Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "had to take the bus to the plane and walk up the stairs with my heavy carry on bags."
Cons: "We did not receive the seats we chose months prior when we originally booked. The crew was not engaged and unhelpful. There were no veggie options so we did not eat. We received buns and desert. Terrible service overall."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable, and food was tasty, although very small portions, and no fresh fruit or salad"
Cons: "Almost a mission impossible to reserve your seats in advance - felt like I was back in the 90s. Unnaceptable in our digital age. Old movies in “new releases” entertainment section"
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing I can say that I liked about China Eastern flight. See comments below."
Cons: "Service was horrible. Flight got delayed by 10 hours and staff expected us to wait at the gate till the next flight."
Pros: "Stood in line from 11.45 for 2.15 flight. Just one junior person handled multiple airlines. Nom chinese passports were moved to the side and we got bording pass at 1.55 with a boarding time pf 1.45!!!. Two women had behind the counter had some personal fight and some ego clash on who’s responsibilty to serve the people held waiting in side. We couldnt make it on time... One bus for a a330 full of passengers. Horrible food"
Pros: "Bathroom was clean."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Seats did not have individual tv screens. There was no variety in the meals provided during the flight."
Cons: "If anything goes wrong with your flight , they will Rob you of your money and there is nothing you can do about it. DO NOT fly with east china air just trying save a few bucks. Bad idea"
Pros: "The service was great. Seats barrable."
Cons: "May have gotten sick from the water or food served."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess"
Cons: "Traveling through China is a nightmare"
Pros: "Service was prompt and polite. The personnel were great!"
Cons: "Im not sure if it's China Eastern policy, fleet-wide, but cell phone use was not allowed the entire flight, even with the phone switched to airplane mode. This, and the fact that seats did not contain flight entertainment systems, meant that I couldn't watch any movies."
Cons: "flight attendants not friendly"
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!"
Pros: "The tickets were a great price, the staff was great, the entertainment selection was great, and overall I'd give the experience an A-"
Cons: "The food wasn't good and it was really hard to request the vegetarian option."
Cons: "Please see above all the connection issues."
Pros: "Nov 29, 2017. While flying China Eastern through Quingdao Liuting International Airport with overnight transit, I knew that airport shuts down overnight and was prepared for it with off the airport hotel reservation and all. But I was surprised at the time of check in at the origination airport (San Francisco) that I would be required to pickup the checked in luggage at Quingdao and check it back in next day for connecting flight to Shanghai. There was a Left Luggage facility at Quingdao Liuting Aurport on second floor departure level, to take away some pain. But more surprise as they charged me for two full days just for overnight service. Argument was that I am leaving the luggage today evening at 7:00pm but will pick 5:30am tomorrow morning thus making two calendar day charges. Staff did not know English but was very nice and helpful. It was very clear that they were policy bound and the money was not going in her pocket. For two pieces it was RMB 80 (20 per piece per day). Fortunate my English to Chinese translator phone app T Mobile One Plan and extra RMBs I had kept hoping to defray such unexpected situations helped a lot to make handling this situation easier. Otherwise I would have been much more dismayed :( But all in all I was impressed by the Airline Crews’ hospitality and Airport staff professionalism :) despite the fact that I don’t they get paid as much as most of their western counterparts. I read that a new Quingdao airport is on the cards in 2019 or so and that can change the situation. So I have mentioned a date at the start of this comment to make sure future readers have a time context too."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The flight arrives and departures from different airports - i wish I was notified about it."
Cons: "They would not accomidate a flight change after I was delayed in an accident getting to the airport. One desk said there was a seat on the earlier flight and sent me out of the gate area to the front of the airport. When I got there a few minutes later they said no there is no seat. I was upset because I had to wait 6 hours now and go back through security again. I asked to speak to a supervisor. They pertended not to understand. I was persistant and then they siad oh here is a seat on the 1:00 flight. Then he goes do you want window or aisle. If there was no seats whey do I have a choice?"
Pros: "left on time and arrived on time small snack was tasty"
Cons: "had to take a bus to the plane and walk up the stairs with my heavy suitcase."
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies to watch"
Cons: "Couldn’t use our phone the entire time. I wasn’t able to watch any of my Netflix shows that I downloaded."
Cons: "The crew from China Eastern on the plane not too friendly. Not even "thank you", " please", "you are welcome ". Food not so good. Not enough choices."
Pros: "Very helpful flight attendant (should have asked her name) Healthy food"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed to the point of missing my connecting flight. They rerouted me to Shanghai and refused to pay for ground transportation to get to Nanjing, despite my original flight being booked to Nanjing. Absolutely horrible customer service and no attempt to help. I ended up losing hundreds more on booking my own transportation from Shanghai to Nanjing."
Cons: "The airline didn't honor my ticket, and subsequently I had to purchase another ticket - this time at the counter which was outrageously expensive."
Pros: "Compared with airlines in the US, here you actually get food, even for a short flight"
Pros: "Nice crew,courteous service"
Cons: "Food could take improvement"
Pros: "Flight was extremely reasonably priced and the planes were new. The flights were on time and I felt like the take off and landings went quite smoothly."
Cons: "The boarding process was a free for all - complete with pushing and shoving to get to the ticket checker. The food was abysmal and I got sick from it on the way to and from my destination - I would not recommend that ANYONE eat the food. The attendants were rude and did not have a grasp of English - lots of reaching over, using hand gestures instead of words. People were definitely smoking on the flight - at least three of the four flights I took and I'm not sure how the attendants didn't stop the smokers. These were also flights where there was a lot of uncovered coughing, hacking and uncovered sneezes in addition to unrelenting farting. Neighboring passengers did not practice personal space and constantly leaned over on myself and my friend."
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "When making the reservations I was never told that there is a 24 hour visa in Beijing, as a matter of fact, the airline changed my return flight for a 25.6 hour lay over in Beijing. When I arrived at the airport, I was told I could not board the plane. I called the airline and was given another flight to Shanghai where I could stay up to 144 hours for another $1600.00. The reservations clerk didn't tell me about the Visa issues even after numerous phone calls. Since the airline is "China Eastern" I would presume they'd know the rules before booking and changing flights violating the rules, unless that's the scam to get people to pay even more for their flights."
Cons: "Lost baggage, couldnt check in until just before flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and food was awful. I had rice and fish and had to literally put butter on the rice so that itll taste like something. Yuck! Second flight was delayed. Same two movies for the 4 flights all in chinese, the subtitles were too small and no english audio."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, we sat at the gate for 4 hours before takeoff. During that time we were given a meal, but not fed again for over 8 hours! In total we were on the plane for over 17 hours."
Pros: "Very efficient staff. Great operating system"
Cons: "They changed the flight schedule during the last few days. Their phone lines don't work, either they don't pick up or all they speak is Chinese. The airport staff is mind-bogglingly uncooperative. They didn't even offer me a hotel for the 21 hours layover I was forced to endure. No one had proper answers; they were just sending me from one desk to the other till I gave up and slept at the airport itself."
Cons: "Airplane flew in the sky for 2 extra hours before landing in qingdao. Delayed at qingdao airport with no explanation for 6-7 hours. Very poor service and attitude from the attendants. No one was present and when the manager came he gave no information and lied about why the flight was delayed. He said there were weather conditions but it neither rained nor snowed in qingdao or Seoul. The worst experience ever."
Pros: "More food and drink choices More international appeal Free internet"
Cons: "Lack of international entertainment"
Pros: "They didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "I booked a trip for me and my wife to Japan, and a few weeks before we were supposed to leave, China Eastern cancelled the flights we were scheduled to take. I had to call customer service to get us reassigned to new flights. This changed the dates of our trip, which messed up my time off from work, and I had to request more time off. We had 2 flights each way, and at least half of them were delayed. Check-in at the airport was unreasonably slow. Despite that the flights were non-smoking, there were people smoking. I know that coach seats are usually crammed, but these were more crammed than other flights I've been on."
