Summarising......

Plus points about China Eastern:

1. Competitve fares (same price as Cathay and Thai which requires transit and take 8 hours 20 mins instead of 4 hours 50 mins)
2. Offering direct flight and good schedule (3 flights to Singapore per day)
3. Above average food
4. Clean cabin
5. Service was quick and efficient

Minus points about China Eastern:

1. Rather average service in terms of friendliness (not a lot of smiles and poor attitude sometimes)
2. Scratchy windows (doesn't leave a good impression on the passenger)
3. Rather tight seat pitch
4. Below average entertainment
5. English language proficiency (oral) of stewardess below average (dun really understand the annoucement in English, I can foresee a problem if you don't understand Mandarin)
6. Inflight magazine in mandarin only (no English so for passenger who can't read Mandarin, this will be a problem)

China Eastern to join Onewrold?

Given that China Southern has chosen to join Skyteam, that Air China is apparently ready to join Star, and that China Eastern already codeshares with American Airlines and JAL, isn't it most natural for China Eastern to join Oneworld?

The one spanner in the works is Cathay Pacific's 10% stake in Air China. There were even rumours earlier this year of a comprehensive tie-up of Air China, Cathay Pacific, and Dragonair. It is likely that China Eastern and Air China will ally with Oneworld and Star - but in which pairings?
