Anyone been on China Eastern Airline's A330?

Hi, has anyone been on China Eastern's A330 business class? What is like in its business class for internal service? I'm due to fly from Shanghai to Xian on MU292, which is operated by A330.

THANKS

I was on it yesterday its brand new, seats are OK, service so so ! they dont like to serve alchohol and although they had very limited selection they dont like to get it out as it means they have to put it away again.

Oh,no that is really sad! Is it flat bed seat on business class or just normal seat?

I think MU is the worst airline in China. I might just choose to fly CA.

-IMO, a lot of Chinese airlines are worse than MU
-CA doesn't fly that route

I've flown on MU's A330s several times. They are very nice, actually, and brand new. In First/Business Class (where I've flown), the seats are lie flat (albeit at an angle).

TMK, slightly more than half of MU's 330s feature the nice cabins that you speak of.

The problem for the OP is that XIY is pretty low on the totem pole as far as 330s are concerned because they face much stiffer competition on routes like HKG, NRT, PEK, CAN, etc.

That said, I think the OP's initial inclination to try the 330 was good; even the regional config is preferable to an FM 738.
