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
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!
For travel on an 11 hour flightnon economy,
I would expect to have water or drinks offered on that small tray about maybe once an hour at minimum. We had to ask every time we wanted water or when the meals were served they weren't served with wine or water so we had to ask for that. It got to us about 20-30 min later. The service was terrible to say the least. I realize that we were in economy and not all classes are treated equal, but some water offered or wine during a meal isn't too much to ask.
I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly.
As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time.
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.
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.
