For some reason I can't tell what type of aircraft that is. Is that an A300 or an A330? It looks like an A300 or a really beaten up A330 to me. I would be suprised if it was an A330.

I read alot of bad stuff about China Eastern as well but I would like to fly it some day to see it myself.

Nice Images

as for the aircraft type , you can understand it's a A300-600 from it's size, the nose and the wingtips. Finally its possible to recognise it from the Photo showing the A300-600 Safety instructions
