Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Vegetarian food is terrible. Also no variety"
Cons: "I have chosen the seats and paid extra for those seats but got assigned to different seats. The seats for both to Shanghai and Vancouver were all the way to the back, very disappointed."
Pros: "Crew staff was very helpful."
Cons: "More entertainment options."
Cons: "Got to China. And for some reason they were not handing out 24 hour visas to anyone that morning. Have a 19 hour connection and not allowed to leave the airport. Asked the airline to change the flight so the wait would be significantly less. Very rude China Eastern staff who yelled instead of trying"
Pros: "Nothing! Couldn't be worse. The crew don't care about passengers and can't speak English either. We had a very long delay for no reason. The plane landed at a different airport that it was supposed to and then the airline bussed us to the Shanghai airport. Terrible terrible operation..."
Cons: "Everything! First please hire flight attendants that can speak English. Then provide better food. Even with Chinese standards the food had a bad quality. The stewardess didn't even understand that airplane mode exists for cell phones. She screamed at me to turn it off. Entertainment was a disaster"
Pros: "Left the airport on time, arrived on time, good flight, good service onboard."
Pros: "Food was okay, though they didn't get the variety of our vegetarian meals correct once again. Flight was timely."
Cons: "Worst thing was changing our pre-reserved seats saying it was an improvement, then sticking me from an aisle to a middle seat. It's one thing to do it, but it's egregious to lie about it. Crew was cold and not so friendly. They were a little rude as well, but some passengers were also rude. They were efficient, however. Earphones didn't work properly. Movie selection was just okay. Layover too long without a supplied hotel (16 hours)."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Turbulence most of the time Crew not courteous"
Pros: "Getting a poncho to help stay dry as we exited the plane for the shuttle bus."
Cons: "Not a lot of room. Also, doesn't anyone use a napkin in Asia?"

Cons: "food quality non availability of suitable and sufficient vegetarian Asian food Indian do face food problem specially veg."
Pros: "It brought me to Shanghai safely."
Cons: "They kept moving my seat because families wanted to sit together!!! I ended up sitting on one of those rows where I do not get a personal monitor. And the flight was seven hours long!!! I hated it so much. If flight attendants can be more strict next time when it comes to these families who do not even wanna pay the extra charge to reserve seats, then that would be good."
Pros: "Check in was ok at Delhi airport but the person on desk was new for his job as I could experienced."
Cons: "Wheel chair was requested at Shanghai Pudong Airport but it was not provided even after at gate .They sa8d its not available. i had to walk down. I had to remind them for Asian vegetarian meal. Zip lock tag strip was not placed on my suit case ."

Only beer and wine. Small seats but then every airline has small seats these days. Seats also do not recline as hey once did"
Cons: "Flight delayed, ran out of beer, cut entertainment off way to early"
Pros: "Nothing about this flight is terrible, but the service and food definitely fits the lower price bracket."
Pros: "Boarding was great, flights on time. Movie selection okay. Crew okay but not the friendliest."

Cons: "Website works poorly,online checkin fails China Airlines has poor customer service but ingenuity and persistence can often overcome that. Language barrier can be real Delhi to Shanghai flight didn't have individual dvd entertainment"
Pros: "Probably worst airline ever flown, but good price. About 40% cheaper than others."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours on tarmac. Worst food, bad service, no in flight entertainment. Pretty much international flight you can get."
Cons: "Because of congestion at shanghai the flight from Delhi to Shanghai, the flight was canceled. The handling of the cancellation was terrible on both the Chinese Eastern and Indian airport official's side. Communication was slow and spotty, and this caused much stress and loss of time for the passengers. After repeated calls to the customer service center, it was discovered that China Eastern didn't even know the status of their own flights, as the computer systems didn't reflect the changes. I was passed to different customer service representatives being on hold for over an hour. Finally, It took 7 hrs to go from cancelation until we got to hotel, from 1am until 8am. During this time, passengers were repeatedly corralled in cold location and no refreshments were offered. The following day, the confusion continued as China Eastern and the Indian Air Port Officials passed blame and communication broke down between the passengers. At no point were all the parties concerned briefed on the plan, so people were left wondering and not sleeping during the time at the hotel. Finally a Chinese national called the Chinese embassy of Delhi, and the Chinese government stepped in and got us a flight out. China Eastern's denial of responsibility, lack of internal communication, and lack of Chinese Eastern ground support in Delhi made this flight experience the worst of my life. Some how I would like a full refund for the return portion of the trip."
Pros: "Service was good, space between the seats was large enough, crew was very courteous."
Cons: "I purchased internet for the flight but it was almost completely useless. Firstly because China is blocking facebook and all of the google services, including gmail and youtube. But also because internet speed was so low that I could not open most of the pages that I wanted. Also, some of the movies in entertainment section had no english subtitles. It was annoying to find out only after watching 3 minutes of commercials and few minutes into a movie."
Cons: "They changed the flight schedule during the last few days. Their phone lines don't work, either they don't pick up or all they speak is Chinese. The airport staff is mind-bogglingly uncooperative. They didn't even offer me a hotel for the 21 hours layover I was forced to endure. No one had proper answers; they were just sending me from one desk to the other till I gave up and slept at the airport itself."
Pros: "Somehow, China Eastern managed to lose my Luggage for a direct New Delhi to Shanghai flight. How does one do that??"
Pros: "Worst flight I have ever travelled. If you are looking for cheap bus travel go in this flight."
Cons: "Flight is always late. You have to run in the airport for boarding your next flight."
Cons: "boarding was late no vegetarian food in spite several requests. botched up itinerary took me hours of convincing before I can get boarding pass."
Pros: "Basic flight. On time performance."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment on seat, basic food - hardly eatable."
Cons: "The staff was extremely unhelpful. I had a connecting flight and they didn't help at all."
Pros: "Modern plane - nice staff. We were always on time or told why we were not on time."
Cons: "People were screaming and running around the aisles; no one bothered to respect the 'sleep/awake' time, which was not the staff's fault. They also did not serve much water."
Cons: "Been 4:30 hours before boarding , crew refuse we drop luggages due to wrong passport number (that's normal) changing passport number via booker as been terribly difficult, note booker don't ask on web site passport number for domestic flight. Chinese eastern airline (carrier) website very difficult to use. It Has been a very strange situation. Booker was priceline.com website not good Customer service at priceline.com is good"
Cons: "The while expereince"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours with no information provided...twice"
Cons: "Layover time was incorrect- much longer than when I booked Fleas in Shanghai airport Horrible food Wouldn't let passengers use empty rows Light and dark at weird hours"
