China Eastern Airlines - Passengers' Reviews

Excellent service

I flew in from Shanghai to Chicago non-stop. The service provided by the crew for business class air ticket holders was impeccable. There was also ample legroom in the cabin that helped with the long flight. The food was well-prepared and there was an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to choose from.

Great value for money

It was my first time to fly on China Eastern Airlines. I had an economy air ticket from Shanghai to KualaLumpur, and the staffs were very accommodating throughout the flight. The flight arrived and left on
time and there were no delays. I’m sure to fly with them again!

Food was awesome

We took the China Eastern Airlines form Los Angeles to Shanghai. The food selection was great. Unlike other airlines, the in-flight food was fresh and there were many options to choose from. Will definitely recommend this airline to my colleagues!
