I can't remember which airlines I was on when flying in China, but they were all fine -- was on 3 differnt carriers. The best part were the service annoucements about how to use the lavatories!

A perfectly adequate airline.  I can't remember anything specific which is always good, I think, when it comes to an airline.  It might be enlightening to know why mobiledoc above thinks it noteworthy to call this particular airline a cattle car.  Aren't they all?

If China Eastern can be classified as a cattle car then all  airlines fall in the same category. What airline isn't. Are US airlines any better? They are fine.

I was pleasantly surprised with my experience on China Eastern. The flight got away on time, the staff were polite, the seats were comfortable enough (though I would recommend a neck pillow if travelling long distances), there was plenty of leg room in economy, the entertainment system was adequate and the food was generally OK. The biggest negative, in my opinion, was poor standard of alcoholic drinks. For example, only warm beer or limited red wine was offered at dinner and throughout flight -there was no white wine available which either meant it wasn't provided or it ran out before it got to the rear of the airbus 300. Also the cabin crew whilst always polite weren't that attentive at times. To be truthful they probably deserve a "good" rating rather than average but that option isn't available. I guess the bottom line is, based on this experience, I would have no problems flying with them again.
