China Eastern 777-300ER Business Class
Business Traveler|June 2017

Los Angeles(LAX)—Shanghai(PVG)

CHECK-IN: China Eastern runs its departures out of Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at LAX and uses the sizeable (14,200-square-foot) Korean Air SkyTeam Lounge for upper class passengers. Check-in was uneventful, although security at LAX is unpredictable.

Once through, the lounge offers plenty of comfortable seating with all sorts of nooks and crannies within a generous open setting. Hours run from 7:30 AM to midnight daily and Priority Pass members are welcomed.

BOARDING: The flight left from the far end of the concourse and was expectedly full. The Business Class cabin offers 52 reverse herringbone seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. This meant privacy for me, as I was on the aisle, plus easier mobility and a comfortable view. My seat had ample storage all around. Libations, including Champagne, and hot towels were offered before take-off. Wheels up and it was a slight snooze until packaged mixed nuts and a glass of chilled Tsingtao.
