I have taken China Eastern a few times. Good service. Good prices. But the stops at Mainland China airports are bleak, and for my trip to California rather out of the way.

Flying from Florida to JFK to get to the P's makes no sense to me,  but I see no way to do a shorter route?

i never took China Eastern either and mostly used Cathay's JFK-Cebu flights with great results.  a few have told me China Eastern might be quite a but cheaper so i guess i will look into it for our next trip.  nice to read the reviews in this thread.  

Long story on cost, but here goes.   Live in Ft Myers and a flight with reasonable connections, say 30 hours to Cebu would have cost me $1250 each X 2 = $2500.  Could fly for alot less but looooong layovers, changing airports, not for me.

China Eastern was $750 each RT X 2 = $1500, but not a $1000 savings.  Flight was out of Ft Lauderdale.  Had to rent car each way and hotel room each time a bit more than $300 in expenses.  So saved over $600 by driving to Ft Lauderdale and back and spending a couple nights in hotel rooms.  Ft Lauderdale is about a 2 1/2 hour drive each way.   This is for similar connections and about 30 hours each way.  Could have skipped the hotel rooms, but too old to live on the edge.
