The comfort was excellent
Delta does a great job in general. However, the “Comfort+“ seats weren’t worth the money. I sat in both seats, and I compared the width of the seats and the distance from the seat edge to the back of the seat in front of it. There was a difference of about 2” in the seat width and 1” in the leg room. Very disappointing.
Some passengers weren’t wearing masks or were wearing them below their noses, and I think there could have been general announcements reminding them about that.
Same comment as before. Should not be part of skyteam. Alitlia is way below standard for that group of stellar airlines. Staff is unfriendly, delivers poor service and do not make you feel welcome on board. Food is good. Only water not other drinks available. No garbage college during flight or before landing. Entertaining is so so and the bathrooms are dirty.
The staff was extremely nice and professional.They did excellent job!
As always, Delta never fails to deliver! Let’s keep climbing!
This was the Delta Shuttle flight (operated by Republic Airways (therefore not a mainline flight)). The crew was exceptional in expediting boarding, accommodating customers, and politely dealing with “difficult” passengers (don’t be that passenger - it’s a 40 minute flight). Great flight overall.
I like that I got to my destination safely.
Everyone is doing their best, but travel sucks! Mask wearing is necessary but odious. The worst thing is the toilets on 767s are so cramped that you cannot see where the trash is without crouching down or being a pigmy, so people leave their towels by the sink!
The entertainment unit not work. It kept freezing up, the map kept moving around to other parts of the globe, so,e functions didn't operate at all. Finally less than halfway through the flight the unit froze up all together and was completely unusable. Also, the seat wasn't able to recline as the button on the seat was completely missing!
The flight was on time. Delta was very communicative as far as checking in, luggage, boarding ect. I was traveling with an infant, it would’ve been nice if they helped us out with an aisle seat.
Pros: "Crew was attentive , quiet flight"
Cons: "More food choices"
Cons: "The flight could have been on time"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the plane departed early."
Cons: "I had an exit row seat (21G). The seat felt like a church pew and the right armrest was lower than normal since it was mounted on the exit door. This was by far the most uncomfortable flight I've had. My back started to hurt even before the plane took off."
Cons: "It was the last row, could not sleep on it"
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and cool!"
Cons: "Movies were outdated flying to Amsterdam, coming back was great"
Cons: "Reservation said hot food, no food was offered except for crackers and nuts, flight had no real options for drink except if you are a coffee drinker or coke drinker"
Pros: "Crew was nasty. They acted like prison guards not like they supposed to act to customers."
Cons: "All was excellent"
Cons: "The cookies and snacks are terrible. A single sandwich would have been better and not cost that much more t For the airline"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Cons: "nothing all excellent"
Pros: "Delta service and comfort is always excellent."
Cons: "All is great just keep it up"
Pros: "COVID safety measures"
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment via Gogo app / Delta Studio."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, empty middle seats. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Snacks lacked variety and nutritional value."
Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."
Pros: "Entertainment was great , also being able to watch live tv. Cabin crew were good"
Cons: "Be on time , delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."
Pros: "The crew were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off. The crew tried to make it up but it was 90 minutes late in the end - I almost missed a connection. Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew could have proactively provided more water. I was really thirsty mid-flight and had to stand up and ask for water myself."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "Standard flight"
Cons: "My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight."
Pros: "On time departure, good leg room, and comfortable seats"
Cons: "There was cigarette smoke in the aircraft."
Cons: "The food is horrible. Bring your own sandwiches. The flight attendants are very nice, but inexperienced. Our flight had to wait for the fate to clear and passengers got up and started taking their bags down while on an active taxi way. They were walking around while the plane was moving."
Pros: "The crew is amazing."
Cons: "The quality of the food could be better."
Pros: "Left the airport on time, arrived on time, good flight, good service onboard."
Cons: "It would be appreciated if the movie were more updated."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and fairly comfortable with adequate legroom for avg height people, though tray and screen placement can be improved on."
Cons: "PVG airport gates could deal with more seating, at least double... and better handling of delays."
Pros: "It was cheap, had a pretty good selection of movies, was able to choose my seat."
Cons: "The food was pretty mediocre, staff was pretty stingy with drinks, ran out of drink choices, not that comfortable seats for a 15 hour flight, most of the staff was pretty rude to non Chinese customers. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Long flight as expected but the service is very good"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long lines at immigration and security. Crowded and uncomfortable lounge. Had to walk up the stairs to board the plane, which was parked far from the gate."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "boarding process"
Pros: "It is basically whats its worth i couldnt complain"
Cons: "They should add more amenities like slippers, toothbrush but its all good for what its worth"
Cons: "transfer process in Shanghai choatic. Need to wait for staff to take me to transfer area. Airport staff in Shanghai rude."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Food was not so good. Chinese lady was sitting in the isle and no one in the middle, me at the window. She was so rude and didn’t care that I was sleeping. She was trying to lay down on both seats and kept waking me up with her best naked feet! 5 times I asked her to sit normally, nothing worked, she djs t understand, I guess this is normal in China. Rude and nasty! She was picking her nose then taking my bred from flight attendant to pass to me to be nice but why with your hands that just been up your nose!!!! And when she kept waking me up using both sets no one seemed to care!"
Pros: "Comfortable seating in business"
Cons: "After I missed my connecting flight because of delays in Bangkok, they wouldn't provide me with any food coupons while I wait 8 hours for my next flight. They offered a meal that they cooked in-house, but the wait to receive one was absurdly long and seemed rather dicey. This was confusing as they had provided me with a food coupon in Bangkok for the initial delay, so their customer service policy is rather confusing and comes down to how they feel in the moment. They really should have been more accommodating."
Pros: "The seats were good, and the food was OK. Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "We booked 4 seats together, but we got seats separately, all four were middle seats, and they should have done better job."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing; very attentive, constantly ensuring that I had everything I needed. Plane was very clean and there was no smoking on this flight, unlike the flight over to China."
Cons: "Ground crew needs work, the agent at check-in did not give us our boarding passes for the PVG-JFK flight and told me I could get it in Shanghai. Took almost 30 minutes just to get the boarding pass to wait another 30 minutes to go through passport control and another 20 minutes to go through security, we narrowly made our connection. In New York it took an hour and 15 minutes to get our bags... flew business class, our bags should have been towards the first half of the bags off the plane, our limo driver almost left because he had waited so long for us."
Cons: "The airport staff had my mother standing for a bus ride when she was supposed to be in a wheel chair. Was not happy about that. Can’t blame the airline for that."
Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive, courteous and professional. Even while children were sleeping during meal distribution. We were offered sandwiches for them to eat later. Phone can now be used in airplane mode. USB charger via screen."
Cons: "Monitors sometimes turn on. Harder to give rest to eyes when lights turn on all monitors."
Pros: "Nobody died."
Cons: "The staff for the airline were very unhelpful. Many people looking for the same flight as me were transferring and no info was listed. Lousy food and nothing to watch. The only good thing about it all was the price. The plane didn't crash which was also good, if you really want to find a positive."
Pros: "Well worth it. Strongly recommended."
Cons: "Bathroom was a bit dirty."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, several meals served."
Cons: "China eastern is the absolute worst airline I've ever flown. They constantly chnage your flight. Which causes people to miss connecting flights. There was a whole group of us that were hauled off to a hotel for the night which had the worst heat everrrr. It was freezing! We slept in several layers of clothes. It was their fault we missed our connections. Our flight coming home got delayed again. Crew is rude and rarely even smile. Their ability to help you or explain things is poor. The plane is beautiful and actually comfortable though and they do feed you. The food was not bad."
Pros: "In flight entertainment system was good and had a nice selection."
Cons: "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."
Pros: "Good aircraft"
Cons: "Poor service"
Cons: "Contacting China eastern airlines customer service was very painful. Accent differences being the major contributor for the cause. China eastern website was giving errors out most of the times while we tried to make seat reservations. Ultimately, the seats we reserved online were not given to us for both of our return flights. Special meals ordered was also not provided to us, stating that we were supposed to reconfirm the meals selection once again during check-in time, which I something we have never done in the past with any of the airlines; I did that for my last flight and bingo - I got the special meals for that flight alone. Anyone asking for special meal - please note this point; it doesn't harm to reconfirm though it sounds like an unnecessary step. Shanghai airport has very limited options for vegetarians. Kimchi noodles, Kimchi cake and Bibimbap were the only good options if you are a vegan. Landing was not good: As the flight had to wait for the runway allocation due to early arrival, flight was going in circles near the airport area, climbing up and down; vomiting sensation!!"
Pros: "CE has B777 to/from JFK which are up to date and comfortable. The biz class is similar to all others, lie flat and more than enough entertainment. The flight attendants are fantastic, always willing to do what ever they can."
Cons: "Often you must deplane/board from the tarmac on connecting flights in PVG. Of course only an issue during in climate weather or if you have difficulty with steps. They are building another terminal so hopefully in a year or so all flights can board form the terminal."
Pros: "That I arrived alive"
Cons: "The food was not good. The crew was not nice and we had to wait one hour at JFK on the plane for a gate. Also, could not check in online"
Pros: "Everything except the man in biusiness who kept getting up and ignoring the flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing. To complain about"
Pros: "China Eastern Airline Customer Service Is VERY BAD. Do not fly China EAstern Airline because it offers no customer service"
Cons: "It is my first time to take China Eastern Airline. My son and I had a round trip from New York to Zhengzhou (Connected at Shanghai). I had no problem for outbound trip from New York to Zhengzhou. But for inbound trip from Zhengzhou to New York, we missed the flight due to China Eastern Airline's very bad customer service. At the airport check in, we were told passport ID number did not match the Eastern Airline flight tickets passport ID number. The check in clerk let us to make changes at Eastern Airline counter. The guy from EA just changed my passport id but did not want to change my 7 years old son's ticket id. He was sitting there and did not care about anything. I told him we were going to miss the flight, he gave me a phone number 95530 to let me call EA in Shanghai. I called and EA in Shanghai said I should change at EA counter of the airport. Man, it's a nightmare. The guy updated my ID number on my ticket, but refuse to update my 7 year old son's ID number. So we had to reschedule to next day flight thru the China Eastern Airline USA. They charged $100! We finally got back to New York. They don't care we miss the flights and their customer Service Is VERY BAD"
Pros: "The flight was fine, the aircraft was relatively new."
Cons: "I paid $ for assigned seats, and when I got to the airport, China Eastern told me they couldn't honor the seat assignment. My seat had been given away. Please don't offer assigned seats for $ if you can't honor the transaction."
Pros: "Flight was extremely reasonably priced and the planes were new. The flights were on time and I felt like the take off and landings went quite smoothly."
Cons: "The boarding process was a free for all - complete with pushing and shoving to get to the ticket checker. The food was abysmal and I got sick from it on the way to and from my destination - I would not recommend that ANYONE eat the food. The attendants were rude and did not have a grasp of English - lots of reaching over, using hand gestures instead of words. People were definitely smoking on the flight - at least three of the four flights I took and I'm not sure how the attendants didn't stop the smokers. These were also flights where there was a lot of uncovered coughing, hacking and uncovered sneezes in addition to unrelenting farting. Neighboring passengers did not practice personal space and constantly leaned over on myself and my friend."
Pros: "China Eastern came in several hundred dollars less than the competition for our roundtrip international flights from NYC to Bangkok via Shanghai. Because of this, we were naturally a bit worried. China Eastern did not disappoint. Their check in process and boarding process is a bit lengthy; however, we boarded seamlessly and were able to be as comfortable as possible during our 15 hour flights. 3 meals were served in this time period, and a pillow and blanket and earphones were provided. There was never a long line for the toilets, and there was an ample selection of movies on the entertainment front. Overall, would use China Eastern again for our international travels to Asia."
Cons: "Other patrons were pushy/pissy, but you cannot please everyone. Look at other reviews, for example :)"
Pros: "Managed to get a seat in a good spot which more legs soace"
Cons: "Chinese regulation forbid the use of any cell phone during the entire flight... even in flight mode!!! This is utterly frustrating and annoying, especially when the flight is 15 hours long!!! Also food was meat only, no possibility to get fish or vegetarian"
Cons: "I am a very frequent flyer. This is by far THE WORST company with THE WORST customer service. I'll skip the details of the flight itself. We are getting ready to sue this company in the United States for their outrageous behavior on our way back from Phuket. We bought 3 round trip tickets from New York to Phuket and back with an overlay in Shanghai. On our way back, at 2am, when all offices are closed, the China Eastern team refused to put us on our plane. They notified us that our tickets were canceled without a prior warning (no refund, by the way). They couldn't help us by, let's day, selling us the same tickets again, and they did not offer any other accommodations. The manager refused to share his supervisor's information and concealed his identity by turning over his badge. They only told us to call the hotline number on the reservation. The number did not work. As we didn't have anywhere to go at 2 am, we stood by the registration counter and kept asking how the company was going to help us get back home since we paid a lot of money and did not receive any prior notice or at least a refund. The manager called six security guards and ordered them to get us away from the counter. Because of the China Eastern despicable customer service, we ended up overpaying $3600 for 3 people, missing an important business meeting, and losing wages as a result of a missed day of work."
Pros: "i enjoyed the amount of meals and beverages and soft blankets on long flights, offered a great range of games and movies."
Cons: "the aisles were very small even for me and i'm considered petite and i had to shuffle sideways down them. many people and not enough restrooms, decent sized lines of people waiting to use the restrooms seemed a safety hazard."
Pros: "Except good looking girl and crew nothing good"
Cons: "Food attitude , too dirty plan , no one care even at gate everything was Bad"
Cons: "Seats, food, English non-friendly app and website"
Cons: "They didn't let me in the plane, because I need a visa for transient China. I asked them before and they said no. I can't understand why you sell a ticket more than 24 transit when a visa is need it. And you don't specify tha"
Pros: "I bought this business class ticket because it was ~$300 cheaper and had a long layover in Shanghai allowing me to visit friends. Boarding process could have been more orderly, but normal chaos for an Asian flight. Seat itself was fine though certainly not the level of comfort you'd find in other airlines that I wouldn't consider to be luxury airlines. Think Delta vs. Emirates. On this spectrum, China Eastern keeps company with Southwest or Spirit except I don't think these airlines have upper cabins. The food was inedible; attendants did not come through with snacks in between and I basically subsisted on a beer diet and what snacks I Had in my carry-on from previous flights. All the movies had the English scrubbed which meant I could watch only if I wanted to watch a silent movie and read English subtitles as if it were the 20s. Cabin and crew were perfectly nice and I don't fault them for the airline's inadequacies."
Pros: "Air china has the worst service I have ever ran across and I have been traveling for years! The changed my flight a week before my flight out and rescheduled it to miss my connection flight with them. I spent multiple hours on the phone on hold waiting to talk to an agent and they did not pick up. I emailed them.... no response. Finally I went to the airport and the told me the best they could do was get me to my destination 3 days later or I could buy another ticket. Then they lost my bags on the way back. I doubt I will ever get my money back from them despite the fact I spent an additional $200 to get to where I was flying... avoid them if you can and if another air line is a few extra bucks more it my be cheaper in the long run"
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: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Could have had more selection for entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was fine for me! Nothing special but fairly comfortable and no bad delays."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster. Also flight attendants were not the most helpful and polite either and very limited in English language"
Cons: "Delayed an hour to board the flight, then delayed and sat on plane for hour and half before takeoff."
Cons: "Poor entertainment options. A 14-hour flight with limited movie choices and inability to use some electronics is not fun."
Pros: "Some of the crew were nice"
Cons: "There was a smell of someone smoking 3 times during the flight. Several times, I would ask for something (for example salt), a crew member would say...I'll bring it right over...and then disappear, not even coming over to say whether they have it or not. The flight was uncomfortable, mainly due to the toddler sitting next to me who was extremely loud and kicking everyone's seats around her. When asked to move, the flight attendant did look if there were seats available but said everyone's free seats next to them had been occupied because people were asleep, stretched out on them. When asked if there were maybe seats in the business class, the attendant wouldn't even hear of it, claiming that that is not area and thus she won't even check. Lastly, the food on China Eastern airlines always leaves me feeling a bit off. Freshness is just not their forte. But what can I say, their flights ARE cheap, so you get what you pay for. All in all, a mediocre experience, at best."
