The attendants were nice and as helpful as they could be with limited English.

The seats were the equivalent of a small puddle jumper plane in the US. Not very well padded and uncomfortable. I took a small pillow for my back and that helped. You aren’t allowed to use your phone at all during the entire flight. It was next to impossible to choose a seat in advance.

We were surprised to find a full entertainment system on the flight, which is perfect for a family with kids. They were entertained the entire time. We'll do it again.

They didn't love the food (too spicy for them, should have ordered some child meals), but this is a great flight. Also we boarded a maybe 15 minutes late, but not a problem.

In flight entertainment system was good and had a nice selection.

Almost could not board my flight back home from Korea as China Eastern changed the departure time of my connection in Beijing by 20 min. After dealing with customer service for over an hour they let me board the flight I already paid for! Middle isle, middle seat at the back of the plane for 14 hours. 1st meal had a very fishy smell so many on the plane didn’t eat it. Someone was smoking in the bathroom too which added a nice smell to the cabin. 2nd meal was a bit better. My seat was pretty tight. (I am 6’2” 230 lbs) Every time I take China Eastern I think to myself never again, but every now and again I have no option. Customer service is almost non-existent if anything goes wrong. They are the only airline that I have issues with almost every booking.

The food was amazing two hot meals and a couple of snacks.

Economy is not the way to travel on an extended flight, aisle seat is bearable but otherwise a fail in the comfort side.

It saves so much time getting to Toowoomba. The flight crew are friendly and you get a complimentary snack pack and drinks - unlike so many domestic flights these days. It's rarely full so you can normally get a row to yourself if traveling alone.

The seats aren't the most comfortable - but no airline really is. It's a small plane so it is extra noisy. If you have noise cancelling headphones, wear them! It will make such a difference.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
