Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Departure was on time (only fifteen minutes late).

Cons: Check-in was a shambles, long lines for bag-drop, despite having booked several months in advance my partner and I could not sit together, the flight and landing was particularly rough, no crew announcements, and our arrival airport was chaotic with no signs indicating which baggage carousel to use for baggage collection. It took us nearly 3 hours to collect luggage and depart the airport.

Pros: I’ve been on dozens of flights prior to this one, this is the first flight I’ve really enjoyed. The service was so good that I was smiling in my seat thinking how great this is. The food was delicious! And free! And very high quality. Coconut, pistachios, frittata, muesli, omelette. Amazing!

Cons: Best airline ever! Add movies though, everyone loves staring into lit screens while the world passes by them, quite literally in this case.

Cons: Flying as a Canadian via China right now NOT RECOMMENDED! If you fly into China on China Eastern and continue with that airline for your transfer to another country, they seize your passports and keep you segregated from everyone else. Law, supposedly. Took us hours to get to our connecting flight.

Cons: They did not let me on the plane due to my middle name not being on my passport. This have never happened to me before in all my years of travel. Worse yet, Kayak (JustFly) did not give me any refund or change my flight. It was "their policy." I will never use JustFly or China Eastern again.

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

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,
