The airline did not ticket us all the way to Tokyo from Krabi. We were forced to go through customs in China which took over two hours to pick up bags and then get another ticket to Tokyo. Airline needs to partner better with Shanghai airlines so that tickets and bags can go from departure to destination

Uh...

The flight was at 2am. At midnight everyone was trying to check in, but they just didn't have enough kiosks and the line stretched out of the waiting area and down the entire building. We all stood in line over an hour and then they delayed the flight cause obviously all those people needed to get through security as well! Also the non smoking plane smelled like smoke?

Good overall experience flying out of Hongqiao airport in Shanghai. If you are Sky team elite, use the Sky Priorty line at China Eastern counter, fast service. Also Sky Priority line at the boarding gate...all staff were very friendly and courteous, much better than expected for China.

The food served in coach class was putrid, just don't eat it.no entertainment system(best bring your own device) in the Airbus A330 on the route Shanghai to Seoul, but it's such a short flight, no issue. The coach seat had ample legroom but seat bottom cushion was worn out, might as well been a park bench. For the price, not a bad option in short haul routes. The website is in Chinese only, so.that.means you need to.ask someone for help to check in online..

Again on board everything was wonderful. The A380 was the most comfortable plane I've ever been in. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and friendly.

Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later. I was injured and in a wheelchair and this was not only a major inconvenience it was also poorly handled for someone who needed additional help. It was every man for himself. I was very disappointed

The food is always bad, and they didn’t allow use of electronics (phones, and they didn’t like me using my iPod I suppose because it looks like a phone?) on a 6 hr international flight when there was NO individual entertainment and no screens. What’s worse is I went into the bathroom right after a flight attendant and there was urine all over the seat! She either did it and left it, or she saw it and hovered over it, leaving it for the next person. Not classy.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

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.

We compile tonnes of data for you
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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
