I’m currently in the process of planning how I’m getting to the U.S. in April and there’s a product I’m extremely tempted to review. I’m currently looking at reviewing China Eastern First Class on their 777 to either JFK or LAX.
Here are a few pictures of China Eastern’s First Class product. The cabin consists of 6 suites, in a 1-2-1 configuration, each with sliding doors and a 24-inch entertainment screen.
The most interesting thing about the cabin is the middle suites. The seats can be made into a double bed, very similar to what Singapore Airlines Suites offer.
As you can see, the First cabin is very small and looks very spacious. The suites, especially the side one’s look very similar to what Etihad have on their 787’s in First.
And the best part is, there are at least two seats available on every flight for the week I need to be in the U.S. For the flight I would redeem 136,000 Qantas points one-way which sounds like a lot but that’s ok value from the Qantas program.
I’m really hoping to try the product and see what it’s like. I haven’t been able to find an actual review on it yet so that would make for an interesting post.
