Good 6.0

Pros: Easy and quick boarding

Cons: We sat in the bulk head economy seats for the extra leg room, but instead it was used as a pass through for the flight attendants and for other passengers. This was an older plane and there wasn’t an aisle cross over, very annoying! The chicken pie was scorching hot and no serving utensils.

Okay 4.6

Pros: The onboard crews were excellent. The entertainment was good too. However, the HK check in counter staffs were terrible, rude, condescending, unprofessional. They left bad tastes in our mouths and ruined the whole trip experience.

Cons: Cathay HK check in counter staffs need to be courteous, respectful, and professional. They need to be trained not to be rude, condescending, disrespectful, unprofessional

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Tickets at good price.

Cons: I paid for the seats (thru justfly), but no seat for the second leg of our return trip were reserved for us. I also wanted to change seats (online, few days before the flight) but couldn’t. I asked China Eastern staff members at the airport and no one was willing/able to resolve my complaint.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Tickets were super cheap.

Cons: Transfer at Nanjing is horrible. There is no transfer hall so connecting passengers have their passports confiscated and are locked in a room like criminals for HOURS. People were crying, others did not understand what was happening and they were panicking. It was a truly awful experience!

Excellent 8.3

Pros: I’m a vegetarian, they made it easy with the online ticket note. I appreciated the thoughtfulness.

Cons: Small leg room but plenty of overhead space for luggage. Don’t forget you can only have 5kg of personal item and 10kg of carry on luggage. Not many people follow the rule but they will make you pay. I paid for heavy checked bag and still had to take items out... not sure if that’s just me!

Good 7.0

Pros: There was only one flight attendant but he was very friendly and worked very hard

Cons: The checkin process is awful if you fly basic economy. This is the second time I have flown basic economy on United and you have to wait in line for 20 minutes to get a boarding pass and then have someone inspect the size of your personal item. You cannot check in and get a boarding pass online.

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

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

We compile tonnes 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 can'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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
