Comfortable flight, leg room ok, lots of free movies, 2 excellent meals given.

Flight was delayed one hour. Also, different legs of the flight are inconveniently scheduled. I had a 5 hour layover in Shanghai and a 14 hour layover in Kunming. Other airlines I’ve been on have offered a free hotel room when the layover is longer than 8 hours, but China Eastern didn’t.

Great value! This was my first time on China Eastern and was apprehensive because of numerous negative reviews I have read about them. Boy, was I very pleasantly surprised. I travelled from Honolulu to Manila with a stopover in Shanghai. The pleasant experience started with the ground crew in Honolulu. Very friendly and helpful unlike experiences I have had with other airlines there. The flight crew was also very good — respectful and helpful in spite of the limited English. The flight left the gate 5 minutes before scheduled departure. I rated the food and entertainment 3-stars not as a negative, but because it was ordinary — I did not expect anything better than that because the price was very cheap. A couple of observations: (1) in spite of a nearly full flight, there was plenty of overhead space — could it have something to do with their luggage policies? and, (2) very efficient boarding — boarding by seating zones rather than frequent flyer status. I saw a lot of calm and no aggressive behavior. Just overall pleasantly surprised.

Fast-tracked us through Shanghai airport with a personal handler for a tight connection. He knew all the back routes and which border agent could put us first in line. No problem even though connection was boarding as we were disembarking arrival flight. Lounge at JFK superb.

No control over air con vents at seat. Plane uncomfortably stuffy for us...asked to turn down temp and they did for awhile.

The price was right and we got what we paid for. All in all the experience was decent. We got where we wanted to go and we didn’t break the bank. The staff was very courteous and helpful, the quantity of food was good.

The seats were far from comfortable, but flights this long never are. As with all planes, the seats just aren’t designed for people that are six feet tall or more. Such is life, but these seats are also quite hard. You get what you pay for.

Relatively smooth flight. Good snacks at back of plane. Plenty of bathrooms. Crew were courteous and helpful.

Headphone jack and USB charging jack didn't work. So wasn't able to watch any movies. Arm rest was broken. When the seat in front reclines it gets very tight forcing you to recline and do it to the person behind you. Needs refurbishing. The seats are in poor shape and are pretty tight.

Lots of free movies. Leg room was ok. Flight left on time.

Boarding process totally chaotic. Entire ground left to stand in rain on tarmac while gate agent stood on stairs to plane checking boarding passes. But the main problem was China Eastern list my bag and 24 hours later I STILL do not have it. They have been very unhelpful in assisting me to recover my bag. I should also add that I was not able to pre-select my seat, but it worked out ok. Also China Eastern cancelled my return flight and is sending me home one day later than originally scheduled without any apology or compensation.

But the main problem was China Eastern list my bag and 24 hours later I STILL do not have it. They have been very unhelpful in assisting me to recover my bag. I should also add that I was not able to pre-select my seat, but it worked out ok. Also China Eastern cancelled my return flight and is sending me home one day later than originally scheduled without any apology or compensation.

Relatively smooth flight. Good snacks at back of plane. Plenty of bathrooms. Crew were courteous and helpful.

Headphone jack and USB charging jack didn't work. So wasn't able to watch any movies. Arm rest was broken. When the seat in front reclines it gets very tight forcing you to recline and do it to the person behind you. Needs refurbishing. The seats are in poor shape and are pretty tight.

Crew was very attentive. The boarding was slow at first but moved along quickly. We ordered our meal online and got our meal first. Very good food.

The seat was small and we are not tall. The bathrooms were always crowded and hard to clean.

Great value! This was my first time on China Eastern and was apprehensive because of numerous negative reviews I have read about them. Boy, was I very pleasantly surprised. I travelled from Honolulu to Manila with a stopover in Shanghai. The pleasant experience started with the ground crew in Honolulu. Very friendly and helpful unlike experiences I have had with other airlines there. The flight crew was also very good — respectful and helpful in spite of the limited English. The flight left the gate 5 minutes before scheduled departure. I rated the food and entertainment 3-stars not as a negative, but because it was ordinary — I did not expect anything better than that because the price was very cheap. A couple of observations: (1) in spite of a nearly full flight, there was plenty of overhead space — could it have something to do with their luggage policies? and, (2) very efficient boarding — boarding by seating zones rather than frequent flyer status. I saw a lot of calm and no aggressive behavior. Just overall pleasantly surprised.

The price was right and we got what we paid for. All in all the experience was decent. We got where we wanted to go and we didn’t break the bank. The staff was very courteous and helpful, the quantity of food was good.

The seats were far from comfortable, but flights this long never are. As with all planes, the seats just aren’t designed for people that are six feet tall or more. Such is life, but these seats are also quite hard. You get what you pay for.

Cheap.

The crew from China Eastern on the plane not too friendly. Not even "thank you", " please", "you are welcome ". Food not so good. Not enough choices.

Lots of free movies. Leg room was ok. Flight left on time.

Boarding process totally chaotic. Entire ground left to stand in rain on tarmac while gate agent stood on stairs to plane checking boarding passes. But the main problem was China Eastern list my bag and 24 hours later I STILL do not have it. They have been very unhelpful in assisting me to recover my bag. I should also add that I was not able to pre-select my seat, but it worked out ok.

the plane was small, old, not comfortable and not remotely up to the standards that we expect from Qantas or the A380s we typically get from CA to SYD. If I book Qantas - I expect a certain level of service - otherwise, I would save the money and just go with the cheapest airline.

Comfortable flight, leg room ok, lots of free movies, 2 excellent meals given.

Flight was delayed one hour. Also, different legs of the flight are inconveniently scheduled. I had a 5 hour layover in Shanghai and a 14 hour layover in Kunming. Other airlines I’ve been on have offered a free hotel room when the layover is longer than 8 hours, but China Eastern didn’t.

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

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 prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons 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 don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires 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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
