Planes were clean and relatively new.

The flight from Delhi to Shanghai was three hours late due to bad weather wt Shanghai. China eastern agents at Delhi lied about the status of the connecting flight from Shanghai to SFO and made us start the journey knowing fully well that we will miss the connection. At Shanghai the agent and her manager were one of the most rude and incompetent folks I have come across - they took three hours to handle 50 passengers. And to top it the immigration folks were equally inefficient they took 3 hours to clear 40 ~ 50 folks for 24 hours transit visa. There were two agents and one supervisor. Do the math - 13 to 16 minutes per person. We stood in line for straight 6 hours. My wife had swollen feet for next few days. China may be great at manufacturing but service is surely not theie thing. Avoid Shanghai airport and China Eastern like the plague.

Food was better than expected. Beverages available onboard were great. In flight entertainment was awesome. Chill music for when I'm reading my books and working and really recent movies I finally have the time to watch.

snacks and water were haphazardly just lying around at the back when I walked around to make sure my legs didn't die from the 16 hour flight. Even though it should be a much less busy time to be assisted, air hostesses would just point you to the drinks when you ask for water or whatever, which explained why the back was so messy because essentially it turned into a self service snack bar. I observed this for both of my 16 hour flights.

The flight was 1.5 hours late and when we were supposed to board I was told that the plan hadn't even left Manila. This was at 9PM at night. There was no notice given so we arrived at the airport on time only to wait for almost 2 hours. PAL has a monopoly on the route and charges almost $100 for a 45 minute flight. I understand the pricing but not notifying passengers when a flight is going to be that late simply reflects a lack of concern on the part of PAL.

The flight existed

China Eastern made no efforts to get me and several other passengers through the crowded airport security in time to board. They never called out our names over intercom or even delayed boarding at all, and simply closed the gates and took off without us although we were only five minutes late to the gate (15m before takeoff). We were refused a hotel for the night and had to figure out and pay for our own accommodation until the next flight takes off. Prior to all of this, I had to cancel one of the three flights I booked because ONE letter in the last name of a passenger was missing. This mistake cost me around $800 and a ton of hassle. I will never book with Justfly and China Eastern again, and Kayak shouldn't have a well-known fraudulent Booker like Just fly in their search results.

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.

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.
