    China Eastern doesn't exactly have the best reputation for their onboard product. They operate an A340-600 to some destinations in the US, and it leaves quite a bit to be desired, unfortunately. Meanwhile their A330 business class product is much better, though those planes don't feature a first class cabin. However, China Eastern is in the process of overhauling their longhaul fleet. Late last week they took delivery of their first of 20 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which they plan to operate primarily between Asia (Shanghai, specifically) and North America. Rumor has it that the 777-300ER will first fly to Los Angeles and then to New York, and that could be as soon as November of this year (though the 777-300ER hasn't yet been loaded for any longhaul service). As of the now the plane has just been scheduled for domestic flights designed to help crews get familiarized with the aircraft, on routes like Shanghai to Chengdu.
