    Excerpt from china eastern airlines’ website. bloated self-praising. typical china :-D:

    “Following the concept of “providing heart-to-heart service to our customers”, China Eastern strives to become an excellent aviation service integrator which wins “Staff Devotion, Customer Loyalty, Shareholder Satisfaction and Public Trust”.
    Since 2009, China Eastern has achieved remarkable development with a brand-new image. China Eastern has been successively recognized as “the most innovative company in China 2011” by FORTUNE, been rewarded the “Five-Star Flight Safety Award” by CAAC and has become the first state-owned civil aviation enterprise that has been recognized as the “Famous trademark in China” by China Administration for Industry and Commerce.:”
