Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was good. We did miss our first flight, so we were automatically rebooked on a new flight."
Cons: "We missed our first flight because of our connection."

Cons: "Terrible service. It’s a nightmare to fly with. And I have a baby with me that even worse to fly with Eva."

Pros: "Everything great"

Pros: "Eva does a great job, nice personnel, good food...probably better than most."
Cons: "More leg room. (My usual complaint,) Premium Economy Very Nice, but at a premium price. I flew once...nice to be offered a glass of Champagne once seated!"

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "No leg room"

Cons: "Was not able to board"

Pros: "Economy seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable, a mannequin would complain and to add insult to injury , the obvious placements of overly extravagant “first class” seats vs regular economy seats , were very off putting. People are sitting on cardboard for hours on end , add some comfort to your seats!"
Cons: "More humanly comfortable seats , I understand you get what you pay for, but having to be deliberately uncomfortable for 13 hours straight is extremely unfair."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Keep doing the same. Cost is not always the most important."

Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"

Cons: "My food was kind of dried up like it had been over microwaved. We were very swished in our seats. Two middle in row of 4. :("

Pros: "Comfortable and excellent hospitality."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Flight attendants were all nice and friendly."

Pros: "They staffs were very friendly"

Cons: "Seating way too tight"

Pros: "EVA isn't a discount airline. Being the National Airline of Taiwan and a member of the STAR alliance, you will pay a premium price. I was originally being put in a row right behind the bulkhead with no individual monitor and a seat that was extremely cramped because of the tray table. I knew that I would be able to hang for a 13 hour flight and fortunately, the flight attendant was able to move my wife and I."
Cons: "Only one current movie available. Food was bland and not very appetizing."

Pros: "It was a good comfortable flight and on time"
Cons: "I wish we had more food options"

Pros: "EVA crew was wonderful and hardworking"
Cons: "Did not like our seats and weight limits for carry on"

Pros: "I’ve always had a great flight with them. Crew always very nice and very helpful."
Cons: "I have nothing bad to say. Maybe it there was a little more entertainment more movies and tv shows."

Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."

Pros: "Cute and friendly flight attendants. Food was very tasty. Seat were amazingly comfy - no probs with sore bottom. Cabin area clean. Check-in was very easy."
Cons: "Think seats maybe 1-2" (2.5-5cm) closer than Asiana - knees hitting seat in front and if person leaned seat back, it would hurt."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight seated in the exit row 45. I was amazed at the on board service. The attendants moved quickly also in a run without the usual frowns that I’ve seen on other airlines."
Cons: "The exit row seat 45C was too narrow. The cup of coffee I had near the end of flight tasted like halve coffee halve tea. Also the checkin line was too slow. There appeared to be more clocks standing around instead of attending the customers trying to check in."

Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"

Pros: "I cannot say how much i enjoyed eva air. The stewardesses were wonderful the people in taipei i dealt with were fantastic."
Cons: "The woman i had to deal with in seattle at the ticketing desk was an absolute nightmare. Im heartbroken i dont remember her name because i would happily name her. Everyone else was perfect. The fella helping me even said "i am so sorry, she is awful and makes me very nervous. I will probably fly asiana from now on just so i do not have to deal with her."

Pros: "Never flew with EVA but timely take off and landing. Smooth flight. Kind crew members. I think everything is great because I did not expect a lot from this airlines."
Cons: "I don't know much about Chinese food. Announcement was a bit hard to understand their accent."

Pros: "Friendliness, comfy seats"
Cons: "food,"

Pros: "It's like a well oiled engine, they are very reliable every time I fly with them. The service is good and courteous. The in-flight entertainment is wide ranging. The food is ok. Washroom is clean and fresh."
Cons: "More leg room for economy class. :-)"

Pros: "Great food, clean bathrooms, courteous and efficient service. It was my first time flying with EVA Air and I would definitely choose them again."

Pros: "The fly attendants offer water and juice frequently like every 1-2 hours and also snacks 4 times during the flight. Meals taste good and inflight entertainment is good."

Pros: "Reasonable legroom in Economy. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Beer selection is terrible (eww - Heineken) Movie selection is very limited"

Cons: "I did not like the transfer from Eva to air Macau. Horrible. Long walk. No one there. No lounge to wait 5 hours!! I hate what happened"

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade based on being star Alliance gold. Thank you"

Cons: "Person in front of me reclined their seat to far and made it very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nice staff good movie selection good flight"

Pros: "The price the food okay. The leg room seemed more in economy than other airlines."
Cons: "Not just your airline but a cultural differences how westerners take how they are talked too"

Pros: "Without fail, every EVA flight crew is professional and kind the perfect combination for long flights."

Cons: "Wasn't able to confirm seats ahead of time. The option to order a vegetarian meal would have been good. Wasn't able to do either of these things through kayak or eva websites and there were no option once on board."

Cons: "The 6 hours layover"

Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. They were very kind and helpful"
Cons: "I'd work on the in flight food"

Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I had a ile seat,and wasn't crowded"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew always pleasant service good. Seats comfortable"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "Flight crew was unfriendly with myself and other passengers."

Pros: "The service was fantastic, the food was great, the plane was in great shape, overall a great experience - I'd certainly fly again!"

Pros: "relatively more spacious than other airlines"
Cons: "seat itself not comfortable enough, hard seat; food can perhaps be improved"

Pros: "fantastic flight experience. the aircraft was clean neat and comfortable. i loved how they kept the restrooms so clean even through a 13.5 hour flight. I slept through dinner but the western style breakfast was good. The crew was attentive and polite."

Cons: "Old 744 plane. One of the 3 remaining 744s. In flight entertainment has low resolution screen (but touch screen though). Crew service was average - below par for an Asian airline. Seats are not comfortable. No drinks were offered after meal service for such a long flight. Please learn from SIA."

Pros: "Awesome flight...on time and good food.. customer service was excellent"

Pros: "I enjoyed the fact that they were organized professional and efficent"
Cons: "My last flight was through United I will never fly with them again"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours making me late for the next two flights and ultimately costing me an entire day longer in transit. While I understand these things happen, Air Canada's response to me asking for help was abysmal. Ultimately, they didn't care and told me it was my problem. Sadly, one of the first people I talked to really did want to help and arranged flights that would have gotten me back on track but he was prevented from confirming the changes due to management. I will never fly with Air Canada ever again."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"

Cons: "Unreliable flight, always late, not staff at the check in terminal"

Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."

Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."

Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."

Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."

Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."

Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"

Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."

Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Better luggage Service"

Pros: "movie selection on international flight was great."
Cons: "Had a serious delay, which was not acknowledged in anyway. We just waited near the gate for a long, long time. Also, for one of my flights, my group number was never called. I asked the flight attendant about it (when I passed through the gate after most other customers had boarded) and she flippantly responded with something like, "Yeah, maybe I didn't call your boarding zone. I don't know. Whatever." This left a terrible first impression on me."

Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."

Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."

Cons: "Took forever to board"

Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."

Pros: "Short, comfortable seats"

Cons: "Flight delayed again and again. Waited for hours at the airport until they cancelled the flight."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."

Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"

Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."

Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"

Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"

Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"

Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."

Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."

Pros: "I accidentally left my tablet behind when I disembarked. The crew located it and brought it to me speedily while I waited in the baggage area. I'm truly grateful and impressed. All of the flight crew were delightful and thoughtful."

Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"

Cons: "You"

Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."

Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Pros: "New plane lots of comfort"
Cons: "Canadian airport very confusing got lost twice even with directions."

Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"

Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."

Pros: "chairs a little bigger"
Cons: "the staff are indifferent to a point of being rude. The food is dismal and their cost cutting measures really reflect how bad it has become. It functions like a budget airline now. Try to learn a thing or two from the airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore airlines and Qatar airlines."

Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."

Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours but keep saying just 50 minutes late"

Pros: "standard short hop flight"
Cons: "Check in was ridiculous. I went through al the on line procedures and was even able to print out my luggage tag at the kiosk... but then had to wait in line for 45 minutes just to drop my luggage! I came more than 2 hours before as instructed, but the agent at the "baggage drop off" (really the all-round agent for both checking in and baggage drop off) did not show up until less than 90 minutes before the flight, and then there was only one to handle what had become a very long line."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."

Cons: "Better food choices for Business Class passengers"

Pros: "The attendents work so fast, it was so amazing and they always have a smile on there face."

Cons: "Boarding by bus .... on time but departure delayed 45 mins ... I guess typical for China ..."

Pros: "Seats have enough legroom, everything is clean"

Pros: "Crews were very good"
Cons: "Foods could be better"

Cons: "3 hours delay I miss my professional meeting in Shanghai because of this big delay !!! I Sky Team Flying Blue Platinum for Life and this is the first time I got a bad seat and no window"

Pros: "I called the airline phone number many times but no one answered the call. I might not book the air ticket next because of this. Other than that, the overall service is good."
Cons: "The airline website is terrible and misleading. I paid for an extra long leg seat but chose a regular seat because the website didn’t indicate it clearly. I ended up losing my money and sat at the compact seat."

Cons: "Milk and sugar in the coffee."

Cons: "Milk and sugar in the coffee."

Pros: "Excellent caring crew."
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection"

Pros: "I do get what some other reviewers are saying. The food was just fine, better than some airlines but no worse for sure. The crew was excellent and attentive, and i'm saying these things not having had the benefit of the CHEAP flight noted by the previous reviewer. I'll be flying with these guys again."
Cons: "The same gripes everyone has about airline experiences, it's cramped, x 15 hours."

Cons: "Didn’t receive the special meal that was ordered"

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "China Southern caters almost exclusively to the Chinese market and, essentially, operates like a gigantic bus for Chinese tourists making their way across the seas. At least 95% of the passengers were Chinese. Why does that matter? U.S. customer service is entirely absent. That means, things that you take for granted, like selecting your seat and getting your boarding pass on-line, is unavailable. Their website, such is it is, simply is not developed to the levels one would expect. We were unable to select our seats, get seats together, check on the status of the flight, check-in on-line, or get a boarding pass in advance. We essentially paid huge $$$ to a company then crossed our fingers that our reservation would be honored when we got to the airport. VERY STRESSFUL"

Pros: "Nice aircraft noise level low Entertainment good"
Cons: "Unable to use Mobil check- in asked at ticket counter for a forward seat next to exit doors because I am a tall person over 6’3 ended up with a middle seat was rushed to catch connecting flight drink service slow food is a hit or miss"

Pros: "Sevice Short transit Flight on time Friendliness"
Cons: "No halal menu. Please offer at least one full can of soda."

Pros: "The cabin crew was nice."
Cons: "The check in process felt more like an interrogation. Unable to do upgrades at the counter."

Pros: "The service has improved a lot than previous years"
Cons: "Sometimes when the passengers asks for something they try to avoid saying it will be served after the meals or something. If someone asking for water, then they must try to serve as soon as possible without giving any excuse."

Pros: "Good lay flat business seats on A380, great bang for the buck, lounge at GZ is nothing special, staff was good though."
Cons: "Poor inflight entertainment options - make sure to bring your own pre loaded device They deplane and board the A380 onto busses via a single two-story stair case. Yes - all 500+ people...with all their kids and bags, old people young people, all going up one single stair case, up two floors."

Pros: "It’s simply a way to get from one airport to another. Everything is adequate minus the food."
Cons: "The food is really bad, and everything else is adequate for simple travel."

Cons: "Baggage didn't come to HCMC on time. CS changed the schedule so the time was too tight to transit which caused lost baggages and unhappy experience."

Pros: "The plain had the flexible head stand which is a game changer and the crew were very polite."
Cons: "My seat screen didn't work well, was always getting stuck."

Cons: "I'm small, only 5' and very surprised by how little legroom is available on the A321 plane from CAN to ICN...a much taller man sat on the aisle seat and had to keep one knee out at the aisle during the flight."

Pros: "Not crowded."
Cons: "Waited three hours at Shenzhen airport before I could check in for my flight. Then waited two more hours in a dismal VIP lounge."

Pros: "Very happy with the Crew and cleanliness of the Aircraft. Had an overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable and the entertainment could have been a little better."

Pros: "Staff, drinks, entertainment, seat layout"
Cons: "Too warm, but a challenge on all asia flights"

Pros: "I could not fault my journey with your Airline at all. I was very pleased with your staff and your service throughout both of my Flights. I shall be very pleased to travel with your Company again and would recommend you to all my Friends and Family."
Cons: "There was nothing i did not like."

Pros: "Great space. Easy to get on and off plane."
Cons: "Movie/media monitor did not work. Selection of movies and audio were very limited Takeoff very shaky cabin- scary"

Cons: "Bad service..missed connection..Missed our connection.."

Cons: "The staff at Check in and security rejected me to check in or passing security due to their low skills finding passport associated with the tickets. The flight also arrived late, causing me worrying about the connection. Flight back to sfo"

Pros: "I had never flown China Southern and the 777 flight from JFK to CAN was very nice. Business class seats were some of the most comfortable I have been in."
Cons: "No complaints about anything."

Pros: "Everything went smooth"

Pros: "Crews are excellent, prompt and courteous."

Pros: "My seat (first row in the compartment) was comfortable and I slept almost 6h, when I woke up, it surprised me totally that it was only 4 h left to the destination. It took only 11 h 50 min (ahead of schedule) from Guangzhou to San Francisco and it was no delay."
Cons: "Food (fish and rice) was not hot enough."

Pros: "Because of our 8-hour layover in Guangzhou, China Southern gave us a free hotel room 30 minutes from the airport, which included a free buffet breakfast. The bus to the hotel was also complementary. Also, they fed us twice on the trip from LAX, and once more on the flight to Hanoi."
Cons: "The food was okay but could be improved. Also, the online check-in system for our flight from LAX was unavailable."

Pros: "Plane"
Cons: "Crew was not organised"

Pros: "I ate food"
Cons: "The food was bland, no flavor, inadequate in service. Kept asking for water/soda and took forever and choked at one point"

Pros: "Would be nice to be able to charge phone."

Cons: "Flight delayed 90 minutes. Poor communications in boarding area. No bi-lingual staff. Food consisted of a cup of yogurt, banana, and stale bread. Awful. Cabin crew was rude. Spouse's entertainment system did not work correctly."

Pros: "Good"

Cons: "Worst food ever. Sat for 2 hours on the tarmac with zero explanation or retribution."

Pros: "none"
Cons: "Will never use this airline."

Pros: "Full mean for a ~2 hr flight; very spacious economy seating. Completely unheard of on any/every other airline ive ever taken. Would take again."

Pros: "Food is decent, selection of on-demand movies is good."
Cons: "Flight was two hours late leaving Los Angeles and 2 1/2 hours late arriving in Manila."

Pros: "China Southern is just fine, no better or worse than any other airline."
Cons: "I used China Southern to go to Delhi, transiting through Wuhan and Guangzhou. They make you get off with all your carry-on items in both locations, through a cattle run of security and confusing immigration lines, only to end up in exactly the same plane and seat as before. It's a major hassle during the early hours of the morning jetlagged and tired, and for myself, is not worth the few dollars in savings."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food no good"

Pros: "Extremely impressed with the service and comfort of the flight"

Pros: "The plane was always on time and the crew was always ready to help. The food was also good."

Cons: "All went well."

Cons: "We need to stop turbulence, it freak me out."

Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"

Pros: "Just couldn't recline enough to sleep"
Cons: "Pretzels were the only free food available."

Pros: "Poor internet going. No internet or streaming returning."
Cons: "Poor internet going. No internet or streaming returning."

Pros: "On time, courtesy"
Cons: "Seating space, cramped"

Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "And it was actually terrific. United employees were top shelf at every stop, on every plane. (I did seven flights total.)"

Cons: "Shitty service ,...."

Pros: "It was great!"

Cons: "Cacelled then delayed twice. United workers are also very rude. I give them a big ol"

Pros: "Prompness"
Cons: "The Stewadess obviously had a horrible cold or laryngitis. It was horrible to hear her on speaker. Also makes us Concerned that we might catch what she had!"

Pros: "Effort by Seattle team to find alternate routes"

Cons: "The gang stalkers that Kayak and United let sit next to me."

Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"

Pros: "Rhe food"
Cons: "Custmer Service"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Changed my seat to a better one"
Cons: "Plane an hour late taking off"

Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Everything was cramped- not enough space to move. They completely ran out of overhead space. Completely crazy"

Pros: "I had nice people sitting beside me. Not too bumpy."
Cons: "Kind of cramped. Too many screaming babies. A lot of traffic to the restroom. Couldn't put up the arm rest on the window side."

Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "Awesome"

Pros: "I learned to stop flying Air Canada or United affiliated partners"
Cons: "Just about everything else"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Boeing planes are very comfortable. No pressure Really nice experience"

Pros: "I was pleased with the timely departure."

Pros: "Boarding, on time and luggage handling were all smooth with no glitches"
Cons: "Snacks. Really, why bother."

Pros: "Blonde in front of me :)"
Cons: "There is no plug in"

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Snacks weren't very good"

Pros: "Nothing at all. Delta is the best I've been with."
Cons: "The attendant were the wrort I've ever. Continue to hit arms s d was very rude to passenger. One didn't close the over head bin while in sever tubulance."

Pros: "Download the United App (before takeoff! Or you'll have to pay). The App has some good movies and you can watch them free of charge."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I'm never traveling with United again."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Can't sleep sitting up. Pretty funny watching everyone try..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being stuck in DC"

Cons: "They lost my piece of luggage."

Pros: "Blankets were provided"
Cons: "There wasn't any food or entrainment for me to rate."

Cons: "Could not get seat assignment 24 hrs in advance. Website said see desk. Phone call to United said pay more $ get a seat. Had to check in twice, once with bags...still no seat...wait in line again at gate for seat."

Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."

Cons: "No TV"

Pros: "BEFORE BOARDING, THE STAFF WAS SUPER FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING"

Pros: "Everything not TSA related."
Cons: "The racist OKC TSA. The line was moving along and the TSA agent sitting behind the podium checking boarding passes put his hand up and asked me to wait there. There weren't that many people in the lines, so I was wondering why. His partner at the other podium watched him quizzically, as did I, as he paced left and right, looking at nothing then sat back down again and stared at nothing. All the while the line for screening grew smaller and smaller. The other agent asked him, "what are you doing?" He responded by saying, "You said you were getting THEM all." I didn't understand, but clearly there was some subtext that I was not privy to. She shook her head and said, come up here sweetie. Then she managed to do what he obviously couldn't do: his job. Then my girlfriend and I proceeded to be profiled and had our bags searched. If I didn't have to be in OKC I would avoid that airport like the plague. Unprofessional."

Cons: "Late, deplane, staff was unhelpful"

Pros: "Quick boarding"

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "It was cancelled morons."

Pros: "Sleep"
Cons: "Rude lady serving and no tv options"

Pros: "The boarding was great! The flight was very comfortable. We had enough blankets and slept through the flight. I have an allergy to soy and the crew was nice enough to provide an alternative that was not on the menu."
Cons: "More food options for those with soy allergy."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Add more entertainment. Add more food, keep the restrooms clean."

Pros: "My flight had plenty of leg-room and I was able to sleep for 2/3 of the 12 hou flight"
Cons: "The plane was on the cold side an I only packed for the tropics. None of the phone chargers in my row worked"

Pros: "The crew, the plane, the professionalism."
Cons: "More legroom!"

Pros: "Food and service on this flight was outstanding."

Pros: "food was good, enough movies, and stewardesses hard working. was sitting in the economy comfort seats"

Pros: "Punctual. Seat space better than most airline"
Cons: "Food is meh"

Pros: "Business class with flat beds and the forward compartment was very comfortable and cosy"

Pros: "Two hours flight late, otherwise everything OK"

Pros: "Not in special."
Cons: "Lost my baggage."

Pros: "Good movies, food excellent, service great"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Cons: "Food is too sweet ..no salt."

Pros: "Well worth it. Strongly recommended."
Cons: "Bathroom was a bit dirty."

Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Cost of emergency aisle seat. It was $200! I wasn’t going to pay that when my return flight was $600 in total. It was silly that the entire aisle was free for 14 hours but they wouldn’t let anyone sit there. Especially tall people like me!"

Cons: "There is no"

Pros: "Wonderful cabin staff reseated me after snafu with losing my original seat reservations; extremely friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Somewhere in the handoff from Kayak to JustFly to China Eastern my seat reservations got lost (IT staff, please notice). However, as I said on the positive side, the China Eastern cabin crew responded very well and resolved the situation."

Pros: "Pretty clean"
Cons: "Sack lunch that was not appetizing. Couldn't use cell phone the whole flight even on airplane mode. Tight space and very cold. Liquids to bring was not offered. Very poor service. I don't recommend."

Pros: "Fast, easy and comfortable."
Cons: "No internet acces in Shanghai."

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: "The food served it was delicious."
Cons: "Nothing to comment."

Cons: "Unprofessional!!!One of the flight attendants was coughing all the way from Shanghai to NYC!!! Unbelievable Chinaeastern will allow a sick employee serve on the flight!!'Now I'm sick!!!"

Cons: "When I came to the airport in Shenzhen I was told that my ticket was booked but not issued, called the number to US support and got the answer that they would issue the ticket immediately, it was in que?? 5 minutes later the lady at China eastern support told me you guys cancelled the ticket? This is 45 min before my flight was supposed to leave and you cancel my ticket without informing me? I bought a new ticket from China Eastern. What is wrong with you? How can a company fail this flat? //Mattias"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible service, 8 hour delay at the terminal before check in, they wouldn't tell us why our flight was delayed, didn't give us a new time, and we didn't know when the flight would be open to check in since they didn't announce anything or try to help us in any way. No sense of tourism industry, zero English, and ride personnel."

Pros: "Good seats. Pretty hostesses. Good food. Very nice aircraft."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. I knew about it because I got email messages from Kayak informing me of this delay about 4 hours before scheduled takeoff. But the airline officials did not tell anyone about the delay and the Gate kept showing the scheduled time. Even when we asked the officials, they would not say how delayed the flight was going to be, although Kayak knew about it. It was very insensitive on their part to keep passengers waiting indefinitely at the Gate when they knew all the while how delayed the flight was. I wish they would learn to be more honest with their passengers."

Cons: "The service on the plane"

Pros: "Fantastic service!"

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: "Broken chair."

Pros: "I'm over six feet and was able to stretch my !egs on a 777. Bathroom was huge! Crew was efficient. Probably my easiest trip to Asia, didn't feel limje a 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Food was good but I'll pack some extra for the next flight. When flying out of China expect delays."

Pros: "Cabin crew were good and we took off on time for this leg."
Cons: "Chaos boarding. Everyone rushed for getting on plane, not sure why. Difficult to get up when person in front puts seat back."

Pros: "The food was pretty good but that's my only pro."
Cons: "My seatbelt was falling apart and broken..."

Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Food and tight spaces."

Pros: "Good trip. As with many flights loading ramp was disconnected 15 min. before departure. Always get to gate at least 45 min. early."
Cons: "Not allowed to use electronic devices even in flight mode and WiFi turned off."

Pros: "Website does not work in English"
Cons: "Could not log in and select seats"

Pros: "New planes. Comfortable. They include a small snack for a short flight. Free baggage included in the price."
Cons: "The 1h flight was late for 1h. There is no English magazine or something to read. The staff is a bit rough, a bit precipitated."

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."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Entertainment Food"

Pros: "No delay"
Cons: "Slow check in and unprofessional attitude from HKG airport crew when line up to get check in. Actual check in was good,"

Pros: "Outside of making it safely to Singapore, there was nothing good about the experience."
Cons: "Its just abundantly clear they don't care about their customers at all. The crew is rude and officious and blatantly would just ignore customers trying to get their help, they will force you to keep all electronics to be off for 30 minutes after takeoff and before landing (literally taking them out of your hands) regardless of if they are in airplane mode or even have a wifi signal or are just a kindle, they will not permit the use of mobile phones at any point in the flight and again will take them out of your hand even in airplane mode to listen to music or type notes etc., the food is terrible, they came through once with drinks on a 6 hour flight (thank god I bought some water in the airport beforehand), the plane was noticeably decades old with chairs and table trays falling apart, entertainment did not exist which was made all the more noticeable because your electronics were taken away. My bag was broken and an entire shell for it was missing by the time it got to Singapore. And Shanghai is the worst airport for a layover I've ever been in -- it's a dump of an airport, has very few food options, terrible wifi, you are blocked from accessing basic websites like Google and Facebook, and you have to go through an entirely new security and checkin procedure, which is onerous, even though you did one in Japan. The boarding is slow and terrible, and the flight was delayed sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes without even an attempt to apologize or explain for the delay. And it seems this behavior and approach is just normal based on other people I've talked to. It's. it hard to make flying a little more pleasant with basic courtesies but China Eastern seems to find a way to take every one of those opportunities to male your experience worse."

Cons: "The flight was late for an hour and half to start with. Then after we boarded, we got stuck on tarmac for another hour and half. They claimed it was due to tower's traffic control. But Nanjing Airport was not that busy. Although it was drizzling, it was not windy at all. Soon after they announced that there would be delay, they decided to serve meal while the plane was on the tarmac. A new experience for me. On top of that, the passengers were noisy."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Considering the low price, it was an excellent experience!!"

Pros: "The crew was really helpful"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled because of the weather, they didn't postpone it, so transfer passengers would get a chance to catch the next flight. I was given a flight of another air company, so I had to get and register my luggage again. Given the time delay I simply missed the second flight. The company placed me into a hotel though."

Pros: "Not much. There was a beef noodle dish that was enjoyable for me, but my wife hated it."
Cons: "I didn't like that the airline would not check my bags to the final destination since the 23 hour 50 minute Shanghai layover was "too long" yet the airline refused hotel accommodation because the layover was not long enough (10 minutes too short). I didn't like that the airline put an overweight snorer in the window seat. I did appreciate the crew finding my wife an alternate seat. This guy was a spreader and was encroaching on my wife's space in an inappropriate way. The entertainment was dated and boring. I did not like the boarding process which was disorderly and chaotic. Little or no queuing and no zone boarding except for first and business classes. Economy was every man for himself. The situation at Shanghai Pudong Airport was also chaotic and little help from the airline navigating through a procedure we did not understand and were not forewarned about. Ditto checking in for our onward flight. Never again."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and there was no setting of expectations or announcement by the crew. The frustrated passengers waited and was asking the crew to announce it so everyone would know yet they declined to announce. Everyone just waited even if the flight was late without no expectation on the delay and what caused it. The crew had poker faces and didn't know how to empathize with the frustrated passengers who were worried bec they might miss their connecting flights. There were no apologies and seemed that they didnt care at all, no answer and no setting of expectations theybjust kept asking us to wait whenever a passenger would ask when we will be onboarded."

Pros: "The kind Korean crew and thier service."
Cons: "Had took CE air more than 5years, bout the meal is still poor. Of course better than before(Ate almost the same meal durng 2012~2015)...."
