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?"
Cons: "Wondering if I can as a n the right flight out of PVG - luckily yes..."
Cons: "When we were checking in at the China Eastern ticket counter in MANILA, The customer service rep left the counter to talk to the supervisor. She didn't say anything to us until I asked if there was a problem. She explained what the problem was and said everything was ok., but never told us that our flight schedule was changed in Shanghai. We didn't realize until we arrived in Shanghai and they were rushing use to get to the boarding area. We were suppose to have a 10 hour layover. Airline moved our flight up to 10:45 am from 8:00pm. I am 67 years old. My body doesn't want to run anymore. Wasn't happy."
Pros: "The Price"
Cons: "Most of the airport staff (ICN, KUN) were rude and seemed to not give a damn about your discomfort. they book two separate tickets from ICN to KUN then one from KUN to CNX causing me to deplane retrieve my lugagge and go thru x-rays and security lines, when my original tickets were from ICN to CNX. China Eastern is not ready to fly with the big boys. No Jetway's only air-stairs and busesat most airports, no info placards/signs in KUN. and any fast food would be gourmet compared to China domestic routes. Very, Very uvhappy with Seoul Korea to Chiang Mai flight, Lax to PVG to ICN flight was mediocre at best. NOT, I repeat NOT happy with this carrier in the least.."
Pros: "Was fast and smoothly landed . Desert was awesome, but meal was strange."

Pros: "Overall okay !"
Cons: "The quality of your head phone is totally below standard. The sound quality is really bad and ruins the novelty of a "just released" movie. Please get proper headsets..... what you are doing now stinks of "cost saving". The breakfast variety was not good.... not balanced ... a complete "mish/mash" ....semi East meets West. Please get someone professional to put a proper breakfast menu together"

However, there was nobody informed me the flights were changed including KAYAK, I never get any email from KAYAK, this is really unaccepteble, and wasted my time to change flight."
Pros: "No communications, no offer to make other arrangements, missed connections, loat hotel booking and more. A night wasted"
Pros: "For the price of the flight I believe this was an excellent airline to choose. I your on a budget this is great. Cant really complain~ 14-15 hr flight and food was good (you get 2 meals) and the crew was pretty nice. All of the seats have entertainment with many new movie releases to choose from as well as a variety of music and video games."

Pros: "Getting out of Shanghai, after having to pay for flights, we had already paid for"
Cons: "We have no idea how to get a refund on our two paid for fist/business class tickets??? Help!!!"
Cons: "My brother in law doesn't speak English. He needed help in transit from shaighai to Ho Chi Minh. No one was willing to help him because they were afraid to lose their jobs if they left their station."
Pros: "The crew seem to be very nice people. There are making the best out of a bad situation."
Cons: "Where to begin? The plane had no modern entertainment systems. There were no televisions for individuals. The group TV played some terrible just for fun TV show. It's a rip off candid camera. The food was mediocre at best. Nothing more discouraging me being given a kiddie cup for your soft drink. No opportunity to ask for a can, they use liter size bottles. The check and the clerk of shirred me that I was receiving an extra long legroom seat. It was not. Only due to the fact the flight was 70% full was I able to move to a exit aisle seat with long legroom. Then I was seated next to a young man who proceeded to belch the whole flight. I guess that's a cultural thing. Just part of the aura of China Eastern."
Cons: "Cramped. Creepy crew and food wasn't great."
Pros: "I loved the airplane! Half the flight attendants were super nice while half was just emotionless."
Cons: "Food was absolutely disgusting and entertainment was okay. However, I don't understand why no electronic devices are allowed during flight. No cell phones and no laptops? Can someone please explain why?"
Pros: "Everything was fine for me! Nothing special but fairly comfortable and no bad delays."
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."
Cons: "No one bothered to tell how much is the delay. In the it was delayed by 4.5 hours..."
