Since I am not working right now, I decided to look for the cheapest option for flights. Voila…China Eastern. $520 roundtrip…that’s right, ROUNDTRIP. It was only a few days before the flight that I talked to a few friends who told me how terrible my experience would be.
The overall trip was about 22 hours long:
- 15 hour flight to Shanghai
- 4 hour layover
- 3 hours to Tokyo
It actually wasn’t that bad in the end, although flying that long is tough.
- Old lady sitting behind me kept sticking her feet through the seat and putting them on the arm rest.
- Food was terrible. 100% bring your own if you fly this airline.
- A 4 hour layover after a 15 hour flight is rough.
The descriptions for the in-flight films were nothing short of amazing.
