Pros: Food was good. Seating is very tight. Bathrooms were clean and well-stocked.

Pros: They ran things efficiently and staff was cordial and helpful if asked.

Cons: I didn't realize I was assigned middle seats for.both legs of my long 20 hour trip. It would have been nice if the person checking me in would have considered assigning me a different seat on at least one of the legs. It was fine just not amazing.

Cons: Six empty seats in the “emergency row” I was not feeling well and needed the extra space.5 hours into the 13 hr long haul to Taipei, I felt like I was going to hyperventilate, they charged me $120. Bucks for the privilege. Kosher meal was unbeatable.

Okay 5.6

Pros: It was ok flight. Normal economy class flight. Nothing much to talk about

Cons: Emirates Airlines need to really pay attention to the kind of people they hire. A lot of times you will run into nice people in their counters and desks, until you run into a massive a$$hole. In this airline it is very common to find quite a few individuals that need re-training and re-education on how to deal with customers.

When many passengers needed to board aconnecting flight in Taipei to Bangkok with very little time, crew members shepherded all of us through the tram and security right to boarding. It was fantastic. China Airlines is my “go to” company for any routes on my travels they provide in the future. Thank you China Airlines!!!

Pros: I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal but I had not. The crew was helpful in getting me an extra one and heating it up for me without me asking. I thought I would just skip a meal but was thankful I did not have to do that.

Cons: I was sitting in a middle seat next to a very broad shouldered and tall man who also had a middle seat. He could not help taking up space in my seat because of his large size. It was a very long flight and very uncomfortable and cramped. I wish extra large passengers could not be given middle seats as they need more room.

In order for us to make a change they want $1700 each person, a total of $3400 to take the same flight two days later. The fee is the highest I have ever hear for the same flight class .. I will never ever use China Eastern again, they are taking advantage..I could actually buy a return ticket on another airline for cheaper than they want for a flight change.

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.
