Cons: Flying as a Canadian via China right now NOT RECOMMENDED! If you fly into China on China Eastern and continue with that airline for your transfer to another country, they seize your passports and keep you segregated from everyone else. Law, supposedly. Took us hours to get to our connecting flight.

Okay 5.6

Pros: The ticketing and boarding process went well.

Cons: The staff was short and rude at times and the food on the return trip was the same two choices for the meals and "breakfast" was a smear of tuna on a huge bun -- basically mostly bread. The movie selection was old and outdated.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: We were well looked after by the cabin crew. They came through many times with food and beverage services as well as water. Seats were comfortable enough and there was plenty of room for our carry on luggage. Boarding was on the tarmac and a little chilly but very orderly. Moving through security and customs/immigration at the Nanjing airport is a bit disorganized for in transit passengers but we were patient and the ground staff were very organized and helpful once we were taken to check in.

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.
