Pros: Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out.

Pros: Standard flight

Cons: My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight.

I was told the boarding gate was changed and I had to run across the airport to get to the new gate. Then the flight had a delay because it was full and they tried to convince people to change flight. After I board the aircraft, it was further delayed for another 2 hours with some strange excuses (no pull back crew available?)

Beware of China Airline's deceptive seat availability. During online check-in 48 hrs before flight. I was assigned a middle seat and paid $30 to change seats. However, when I checked back 8 hrs later (i.e., online check-in 36 hrs before flight), a plethora of seats were made available for free, including the standard seat that I paid for. Unfortunately, seat selection fees are nonrefundable.
