It was a day of mishap for Eastern China Airlines. First, a flight to Hong Kong International Airport skidded off the runway in the morning, resulted in the closure of one runway for about 2 hours, causing a delay of over 200 flights. We arrived at the boarding gate 30 mins before departure time 18:45 but already full of passengers....

We booked on China Eastern to Manila because of a very attractive price. This 777-300ER was used on the long-hop ORD to PVG PVG to ORD. We requested 70A and 70C in both directions. This is the best economy seat for travelling couples as there is no Dreaded Middle Seat. The extra room next the window is good for my...

I flew several legs in and out of Shanghai and Nanjing. The flights had always been on time, airports are modern and easy to navigate. The cabin is totally up to date with full flat seats and all the usual comfort. I like the choice of Chinese food which was really good and the crew was very friendly and helpful....

I bought a China East Airlines code-share business class ticket for the Japan Airlines Beijing-Tokyo flight, as my travel agent informed me that it would be $500 less than the airfare directly bought from Japan Airlines. I saved $500, but I’m not sure if it was a good deal as I earned neither frequent flyer points nor status credits with...

Plane fairly new. Not a lot of toilets given the passenger numbers and the same old tuna-in-a-can chairs which I'm not too fond of (would prepare not 100% flat bed if there would be more room to move your legs). Food OK, air staff very friendly.

They broke my luggage and won't respond to any e-mail. Need a written affirmation from them for my insurance company. Also bad food.

First time on this flight, also first time with China Eastern Airlines. Boeing 777/300 is what it is. Working horse, nothing special. Business class seat can be reclined as flat bed, but for 189 cm tall it is just simply too narrow which makes it quite uncomfortable. They serve plenty of food during this flight, it is not possible to...
