Cons: Weather delay ended in hours in line to transfer in Shanghai, complete with irate screaming customers. There was no organization whatsoever at the airport in Shanghai, so no one knew where to go or what to do. A 17 hour trip turned into a two day trip, with a 24 hour delay in Shanghai.

Pros: The turkey sandwich was okay.

Cons: I was seated next to an extremely large man. I possessed only half of my seat for the duration of the six hour flight. I asked a flight attendant to move me but she said the flight was full. There should be a protocol for passengers over 300 lbs.

Pros: Our first two times on EMIRATES airline. 15+ hours going East and then back home. An absolute joy compared to our tired traditional USA choices. Hopefully UNITED and AMERICAN can somehow update.

Good 6.6

Pros: - Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages.

Cons: - Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance).

Pros: Straightforward, get-what-you-pay-for experience. Fairly standard seats, personal entertainment options on the trans-pacific flight, but not within asia. Food served on all flights. Check-in at the airport was also straightforward.

Cons: Would not recommend connecting in Nanjing, as the airport handles international transfers a bit oddly. Expect to wait in a group in a handful of different lines, while being herded quite closely by a customs agent from point to point, passports collected when you get off the plane.

Pros: The food was delicious and of high quality. I enjoyed the entertainment selection. I flew business class. The flight attendants were excellent and gracious. I would fly China Eastern Airlines again.

Cons: Passengers making a connecting flight to Bangkok (BKK) at Nanjing (NKG) were gathered together, escorted through customs, to baggage claim, to the ticketing counter, and back through customs. One of the passenger had to call out each person from their passport. The process took 2 1/2 hours.

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

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

We aggregate tons 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 don'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.

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.
