Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"
Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "It was impossible to breathe throughout the 13-hour flight. It was very hot and humid. Several people asked for the temperature to be adjusted but they never really took care of it. The food was really cheap and stale--quite a disappointment for an expensive flight Tokyo-New York."
Pros: "Food was acceptable. Stewardess very helpful"
Cons: "On a long flight it is good to have a good movie. Selection very bad. Seats r not comfortable seat turns into bed but lower part is too low. Poor design. Food not very good"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "Courteous cabin crews, must be from Japanese culture."
Cons: "On Feb.16, 2018 JL745 Narita to Mnl, flight was delayed, though it was constantly announced but not the reason why. Other than that, I will always fly JAL whenever possible."
Pros: "Crew was really professional and friendly, I sat beside a mom with 2 kids and the crew really helped her in her needs and made sure we were all okay. Food was good and I loved the movie selection, watched all the Oscar movies I've missed."
Pros: "Awefull I did get to use my ticket"
Cons: "Japan could have helped me change my name in my reservation to match my passport"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable enough"

Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good service and very clean plane."
Cons: "After having an enjoyable experience on the first Japan Air flight, the second flight from Narita to Manila was late to board & leave, the food was not nearly as appealing and the flight seats were noticeably less comfortable and less roomy than the first flight."
Pros: "Nice flight, right on time."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"
Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
Pros: "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
Cons: "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."
Pros: "Great flight.The service was excelent.There was always a stewardous walking around and asking if you needed anything.Japan Aitlines is definitely one of the best in the world."
Pros: "787 was phenomenal- amazing airplane. You didn't even feel like you were moving."
Cons: "Food was extremely disappointing"
Pros: "Sitting in the Economy section, I was lucky to get the two seats next to me empty so i was able to stretch and sleep. Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Economy Class seats are uncomfortable for long haul. Wish they could do something about it. Some of us dislike rice crackers and peanuts as welcome snacks so a different option could be nice."
Pros: "Food was quite good."
Cons: "They did't speak English even though I am not Japanese. They spoke Japanese to me so, I felt little bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "I like the service of the Crew (very courteous, The Movies are new and my first time to view them, and the temperature and smell of the airplane is just right. Keep it up!"
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"
Pros: "The entertainment system was grest with many movie optionstar and a large screen for viewing. The seat was very comfortable and there plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 45min and I had a connecting flight which I ended not missing. The food was average. I was expecting something a little more Japanese instead of chicken pasta. And I didn't have a second option."
Pros: "Good solid flight on a relatively comfortable plane"
Cons: "Narita seems to have had delay problems as of late. What should have been a short flight was extended over 40 minutes on the runway. Not the airline's fault by any means, but I'd recommend looking for flights through Haneda if you're passing through Tokyo."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and rebooked for 6 hours later. We did not get notification of this change. My gluten free meal was not on the flight that was changed. All the airline reps that I spoke with were very unhelpful."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Food and not so updated movies in entertainment."
Cons: "I wish there were options in the food they serve."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Pros: "On a quick 40 minute flight they still managed to serve coffee, water and snacks."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats and the entertainment feature found on every seat."
Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"
Pros: "The crew was beautiful and very hospitable and friendly. Loved the movies on board and snacks."
Cons: "Nothing, Delta is the best!"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Pros: "The crew. The option of movies! The plane ride."
Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."
Pros: "The crew was extremely rude. They did not come to collect trash and so all passengers were left holding their coffee/ tea: beverages during bumpy landing."
Cons: "Attendants were rude. I didnt understand why. Also, I purchased a window seat but there was no window in my row. I spent the majority of the flight feeling ill."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."
Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"
Pros: "The two stewardesses were awesome helping me to reschedule possible connecting flight due to leaving mdt 2 hours late"
Cons: "The gate agents were extremely slow causing the flight to pull from the gate 28 minutes late. The capitan of the plane needs a course on how to be polite to an upset customer"
Cons: "I now know the downside of buying through Kayak, the ticket is non-upgradable even when seats became open and I offered to pay for the upgrade."
Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Pros: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"
Cons: "No usb or electric socket to charge mobile phones Landing was very rough"
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "Insane turbulence with no explanation of cause. Also, the jack for my earphones did not function properly."
Cons: "Insane turbulence with no explanation of cause. Also, the jack for my earphones did not function properly."
Pros: "The plane was very clean! We loaded in the center which made everything go quicker. I was one of the last on board and there was ample overhead storage. Complimentary snacks were were substantial and service was constant. I hate going to the bathroom on the plane and it was so roomy for airplane bathrooms. The pilot was hilarious!"
Cons: "Only complaint was nothing that can be changes. I had a middle set and it was quite cramped...my computer didn’t fit on the tray or would get smashed when the person in front of me reclined."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Crew was good, plane was clean."
Cons: "Don't like the Comfort plus seats that have the dividers vs basic arm rests."
Pros: "I got home on the day I planned."
Cons: "This is the second time we've flown from NYC to SC on Delta and it's the second time they messed around with the departure time. We actually got back to SC pretty much on time but the confusion is aggravating and stressful when you're ready to get where you are going. Both times we got to SC when scheduled and Delta appears to think that makes everything fine. Not quite..."
Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"
Pros: "The pilots were communicative of why and what the reasons were of delays as far as the landing and getting the plane to the gate."
Cons: "Attendants that offered drinks and snacks offered me coffee or water but didn’t offer a snack. But asked the girl next to me if she would want one. No consistency"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess at MCO with too many gates close together all boarding at the same time and no seating."
Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."
Pros: "I liked the individual tv screens to watch the latest movies"
Cons: "The slow boarding"
Cons: "No tv screen"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Cons: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Pros: "Liked that they were able to update our seats so we could sit together (spouse,baby,& I)."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed more than they informed us & it appeared that the gate crew did not know how to work the ticket machine & we waited to board with our daughter for 20 mins."
Cons: "There was no tv screen, so if you don’t have a smart phone or tablet you can’t access to the entertainment. Also you should warn passengers to download the Gogo entertainment app because it’s very slow to do it in the flight"
Pros: "Convince of the online apps and the TSA precheck"
Cons: "The aircraft was noisy, and the seats were very uncomfortable and extremely close together.."
Cons: "Left about 2.5 hours late because of a broken seat of all things. Apparently Delta doesn't bother to have maintenance staff on site at the airport."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "I flew with Delta"
Cons: "Your information was Aeroméxico"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Pros: "Good Comfort+ seat, but needs a bit more recline - especially on a 9+ hour flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Glad I have the comfort+ as the other seats have minimal leg room. Bathrooms could use a refresh."
Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."
Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."
