Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Again I had a problem with water bottle, I asked small water bottle but they didnt give me one and i asked if they can fill my 2,5 yo water bottle they only fill it half. I asked again for water hours later and they said I need to wait because they will serve dinner (which is 30mins later) This is just very unpleasant experience and I felt like a bad person asking for only water"
Pros: "Great service by the crew! Excellent food and flight was on time,"
Cons: "Film and movie offerings and music entertainment while on board should be improved with more selections."
Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious meals, comfortable seats. Would fly no other airline to Japan."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "baggage was broken."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."
Pros: "easy check in."
Cons: "can't choose my own seats."
Cons: "First, I did an online check-in and was able to secure a seat for the first leg of the flight, but was able to get any information on my second leg. So when I arrived at the Thai Airways counter to load in my bags I asked the Thai Airways representative about the missing information. His response was that he could not get into the ANA system and that I have to go to the ANA counter to ask for that information. Given that my layover in Narita was only about 45mins landing to going to the gate, I was not comfortable with not knowing if I would be on that flight or not. The Thai Airways representation at the boarding counter did help me a bit and got in touch with a guide in Narita to help me get my luggages and get to gate properly. I wanted to note that we did not arrive in Narita on time due to the high air traffic so the plane had to circle around for 15 mins. When we finally landed I had about 15 mins to get through the custom and ran to my gate. When I received my ticket I was shocked that I got a middle seat on a 13 hours flight! If I have known this earlier I would have paid for a better seat, but since I was not able to check-in online and didn't receive any info about this flight prior to boarding I was not allowed to change on this full flight. In addition, the plane ride was awful. The food was disgusting and the seat was very uncomfortable. The seat did not even recline back! I don't expect much from a short distance flight but for a 13 hour long flight, I at least expect the seat to be slightly better than sitting on a rock against a brick wall. All in all, this was a HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE I went through. The stress and the discomfort on the plane was an experience that no one should ever feel while traveling. It was an awful nightmare on an ANA flight. I would like a refund on this flight with no exceptions. Sincerely, Jessica Saesue"
Cons: "The fact I had to come back to Canada from Japan. Canada is ghetto."
Pros: "The plane wasn't that full so I had a lot of space."
Cons: "the seat itself is still uncomfortable to put in the extended position to relax. Plus the headrest doesn't move very well so it's hard to get a comfortable head position when trying to sleep. The crew took forever getting everyone on the plane I have no idea why it took so long considering they're worn so many people on the flight. The food wasn't very good except for the marble loaf."
Pros: "I loved flying Ana. I cannot stress enough how exemplary the service was and the overall comfort/experience was one of the best I've had. I am looking forward to flying with them again next year when I return to Japan."
Pros: "Flight left on time, service is good and also good entertainment options. Food is a bit so-so frankly but not bad."
Cons: "They take a long long time to let economy class deboard on arrival even after the doors are open. Biz get off first naturally but the staff are sometimes chatting to them for a rather long time."
Cons: "Width of the seat for me was bit tight when in a flat bed position."
Pros: "Enough room for relax"
Pros: "Comfort... enough room for relax"
Pros: "There were very entertaining channels availabe. Very few in English and non in my native language i.e. Urdu."
Cons: "The food. Though it's Halal but very poor quality you should have to improve it."
Pros: "I like the food, service, and punctuality."
Cons: "Nothing I do not like"
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Seats need more padding -- perhaps an optional pad for some customers. It may be impossible to avoid literal butt hurt on a 14-hour flight, but an additional seat pad probably would have helped. Little Japanese woman next to me had one and I think she was quite comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Meal from KUL to HAN was tasty. The separation of the gravy based dish from the rice was a great idea to prevent the soak up. Personal touch screen responsive and quality definition."
Cons: "They refused to board because the united dis not allocate the flight date and ANA check in counter did not help to coordinate."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."
Pros: "Everyone is super nice."
Cons: "The crew was very polite, the best that I have ever seen . I noticed this polite behavior in all Japanese service people in Japan too. Very gracious, It is in their culture. The only problem for me in such a long trip it was that the chairs couldn't move back for a more relaxed position, but overall it was very good ."
Pros: "Very attentive, professional crew."
Pros: "service and comfort in Premium economy"
Cons: "ANA's food quality went down so much. Its basically as bad as united meals. Very sad."
Pros: "Flight attendant Lee-san is amazing and kind. I was feeling really stressed and having a panic attack. She brought me tea and comforted me. I am so thankful for her kindness."
Cons: "Internet is way too expensive and barely works."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."
Pros: "ANA service is always great. Always my first choice."
Cons: "The 777-200 on this route is getting a little old. It would be nice to have one of their newer 787 planes instead. And there is no Premium Economy option."
Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Short flight, needed to purchase food"
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Don't recline. Could use more film choices."
Pros: "Unexpectedly upgraded to business class - fantastic way to start a business trip... Food was amazing, and the seats and legroom are of course paradise compared with economy class - thanks ANA!"
Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."
Pros: "Everyone crew members was very friendly and helpful. I"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful. The food was good. The seat and bed comfortable."
Cons: "There was really nothing to dislike. The video choices could be more imaginative."
Pros: "I liked my seat. It was in the first row behind first class. The ticket lady was very nice and patient"
Cons: "I was very frustrated because I thought I had 90 minutes between flights but by the time I got my luggage it was too late to get my scheduled plane. This forced me to wait two hours for the next plane after I had been on a plane for 13 hours."
Cons: "Long security lines"
Pros: "The padding seems inadequate especially for medium and long hauls. It hurts sitting in the seats after 2 hours into the fight."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever had"
Pros: "This can be relative but compared to USA airlines, most international airlines are so much better. ANA - the service is great - attractive, good looking flight attendant like the way it was back in the 70-80's., food was great and a wide selection of movies. For a 16 hour flight, ANA is the way to go."
Pros: "Standard flight"
Cons: "My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight."
Cons: "There was cigarette smoke in the aircraft."
Pros: "The entertainment system was good."
Cons: "We have a 4 month old and we were the first ones to check in but all bassinet seats were booked. No one was even using them for bassinets. Not sure if they paid extra for those seats to have leg room but we had to hold the baby for 15 hours. They couldn’t do anything for us."
Cons: "There was a metallic can opener in food Crew does not speak english Toilets really bad"
Pros: "I liked the snacks serviced"
Cons: "It would be appreciated if the movie were more updated."
Pros: "Flight attendants are excellent, polite, warm and professional."
Pros: "Seats are fairly spacious, crew is there when needed; plane is ok"
Cons: "Food was really terrible - soggy and greasy; very few beverage options New movies are not bew at all, bad options for a 15 hour flight"
Cons: "Very limited English speaking programs/movies"
Pros: "Food was decent and so was the entertainment selection."
Cons: "Staff could not speak English well. Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "boarding process"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "transfer process in Shanghai choatic. Need to wait for staff to take me to transfer area. Airport staff in Shanghai rude."
Pros: "Cheap ticket fair Crew somewhat friendly despite extremely limited language skills So many empty seats( you will find why below) despite Chinese festival. Boarding to aircraft easy, especially child friendly at SFO. SFO staff quite friendly, at least ours."
Cons: "Overall comment: It’s supposed to be international flight but I and my family, all US CITIZENS had to check in at SFO in the beginning where the staff was very helpful n did her best n told me that I would have to claim baggage one time in China. We had to claim baggages at Qingdao n drag to find hotel with one security guard’s broken English helping me for directions to potential hotels- no help at all otherwise. In the morning, we checked in with all baggages at Qingdao but they refused to do it all the way to KTM. Very very rude n unfriendly staffs. At Kunming, we dragged all baggages with our tired kids n checked in for the third time in one outbound flight n almost had to go through baggage check for lithium battery with the fact that it was the same baggage passing security in SFO then Qingdao and having no lithium inside. It followed a very very painful scrutiny n security which involved my 10 year old, a lot part of which seemed inexperienced n unnecessary. They took my daughters portable charger simply because it was wrapped with fancy tape"
Pros: "Crew members are great and the restroom is always cleaned. The seat is very comfortable. I slept for eight hours straight."
Pros: "Comfortable seating in business"
Pros: "Nice cabin crew. Seats not as cramped and uncomfortable as US carriers. Bathrooms at larger so easier to maneuver especially for old and handicapped. Food average. Ample snacks and drink available in the kitchen for self serve during the long 14 hour flight."
Cons: "The airport staff had my mother standing for a bus ride when she was supposed to be in a wheel chair. Was not happy about that. Can’t blame the airline for that."
Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive, courteous and professional. Even while children were sleeping during meal distribution. We were offered sandwiches for them to eat later. Phone can now be used in airplane mode. USB charger via screen."
Cons: "Monitors sometimes turn on. Harder to give rest to eyes when lights turn on all monitors."
Pros: "Well worth it. Strongly recommended."
Cons: "Bathroom was a bit dirty."
Pros: "Very kind."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "They give menu options first to Chinese passengers and non Chinese passengers get what’s left. Anyway, the food was the worst I had in business class...ever!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hostess attitudes"
Pros: "The price was unbelievable!"
Pros: "The staff were really nice!"
Cons: "I didn't like the uncomfortable seats :( it was a 14 hour flight and I was super uncomfortable! i couldn't even sleep. The food was decent and the staff were great. I also didn't like that it took us 2 hours to get off the plane after we arrived at JFK. I don't think it was the airline's fault though, there was another plane parked at our gate!"
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 min. The attendant who spoke to me, spoke in clear English. The one giving the announcement, her pronunciation was not completely clear. For a routine speech like that, it should be well-rehearsed and clear."
Pros: "The business class seats were quite good. The crew was excellent."
Cons: "Higher quality of food and more movie choices would have been better."
Cons: "Website doesn't work Customer service unreachable by phone Not able to check large baggage (musical keyboard) without prohibitive fee (1000 usd +)"
Cons: "They just gave out my aisle seat to other Chinese person without my consent, and put me into a cramped middle seat in the back. The crew didn't address my complaint nor care for my situation. They just care their own people (Chinese national)."
Pros: "very good"
Cons: "Airline staff have language barrier. Long layover before the last leg to SFO."
Cons: "there wasnt wine & pain relief medicine..."
Pros: "The wine"
Pros: "The economy seats is bigger than some airlines"
Cons: "I am like the second person boarding on the plane and ask for a pillow but in the end the flight attendant told me no pillows left in this plane. Also no personal entertainment at all!"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The staff were impeccable and helpful. The plane was very clean and the flight crew kept it very clean."
Cons: "Interface to entertainment could be less repetitive. easier to navigate. Preview trailers would help. All the ads are annoying to watch when you havent committed to the movie yet."
Pros: "China Eastern came in several hundred dollars less than the competition for our roundtrip international flights from NYC to Bangkok via Shanghai. Because of this, we were naturally a bit worried. China Eastern did not disappoint. Their check in process and boarding process is a bit lengthy; however, we boarded seamlessly and were able to be as comfortable as possible during our 15 hour flights. 3 meals were served in this time period, and a pillow and blanket and earphones were provided. There was never a long line for the toilets, and there was an ample selection of movies on the entertainment front. Overall, would use China Eastern again for our international travels to Asia."
Cons: "Other patrons were pushy/pissy, but you cannot please everyone. Look at other reviews, for example :)"
Cons: "The airport was diffulvt to menuvuer."
Pros: "Managed to get a seat in a good spot which more legs soace"
Cons: "Chinese regulation forbid the use of any cell phone during the entire flight... even in flight mode!!! This is utterly frustrating and annoying, especially when the flight is 15 hours long!!! Also food was meat only, no possibility to get fish or vegetarian"
Cons: "I am a very frequent flyer. This is by far THE WORST company with THE WORST customer service. I'll skip the details of the flight itself. We are getting ready to sue this company in the United States for their outrageous behavior on our way back from Phuket. We bought 3 round trip tickets from New York to Phuket and back with an overlay in Shanghai. On our way back, at 2am, when all offices are closed, the China Eastern team refused to put us on our plane. They notified us that our tickets were canceled without a prior warning (no refund, by the way). They couldn't help us by, let's day, selling us the same tickets again, and they did not offer any other accommodations. The manager refused to share his supervisor's information and concealed his identity by turning over his badge. They only told us to call the hotline number on the reservation. The number did not work. As we didn't have anywhere to go at 2 am, we stood by the registration counter and kept asking how the company was going to help us get back home since we paid a lot of money and did not receive any prior notice or at least a refund. The manager called six security guards and ordered them to get us away from the counter. Because of the China Eastern despicable customer service, we ended up overpaying $3600 for 3 people, missing an important business meeting, and losing wages as a result of a missed day of work."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Stop people from chain smoking in the bathrooms. The cabin was filled with a dim haze throughout the flight."
Pros: "Overall a very good flight for a very reasonable price"
Cons: "In two connecting flights I received meal 3 times, I ordered vegetarian meal, and all 3 times it was exactly the same. I am sure it has nothing to do with an airline but upon landing at JFK we were waiting inside the plane near the gate for 1 hour and 40 minutes before we were allowed to disembark. I am sure it was the airport's fault."
Pros: "Did not like much. The crew was not the friendlyess. There was a crying baby and a loud women sitting directly behind our seats. The crew did not seem to know how to handle the lady or the crying of the baby. The annoying sound made for an the most uncomfortable flight ever. The crew did nothing accommendate us for the noise. A better seat up front, headphones or something should have been offered with out request! Even an apology for the out of control environment! Me and my mate will never take China eastern ever again! And will advise others to do the same. There were plenty of seats available to be moved too... The food was the only decent thing on the plan. The bathrooms where a mess and again the crew was horrible except maybe one, but that doesn't make up for the other 5 or so members who where suppose to be helping out."
Pros: "SO HAPPY IM BACK HOME AND THANKS TO KAYAK FPR BEST PRICES"
Pros: "Flights were on time, quiet, and we were fed sufficiently. We purchased tickets separately, so requested to sit together when we checked in at the airport. They accommodated us to sit together for the first flight, but did not try for the second flight, which is mildly annoying. Leg space was great int he exit rows and pretty average in non-exit rows."
Cons: "The airline lost my travel partner's luggage. Despite a 5 hour layover, her bag did not make it to our final destination with us. While I understand this happens, what was really frustrating was the airline's, and lost luggage department's ability to provide any information about where her bag was and when it would arrive. They were unresponsive for 3 days. They did not follow up, though we tried calling, no one answered nor returned our messages. We finally got information after returning to the airport in person, and they bag was delivered within 24 hours of that in-person follow up."
Pros: "The lounge in Shanghai was second rate--bad wifi, mediocre food. The business class seat was very comfortable and it had a lot of shelves and places to put things."
Cons: "The Chinese food and the Western food on our flight were both not very good. The cabin crew did not pay much attention to the needs of the passengers. They never asked about beverages. When I got up and went to the galley to ask for a cup of coffee after dinner they took my order but never brought the coffee."
Cons: "Small space in economy"
Pros: "Nice crew - filled up my water bottle for me every time, very professional. VERY strict about phone use! Too bad as I use my phone like a tablet to read things that I have saved."
