Pros: "The crew was great and entering and exiting the plane was quick."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable, but I feel like that is a comment for most planes that fly internationally."
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Cons: "JAL LAX Ground staff. Not helpful."
Cons: "I might have missed it but the useful information of the weather of the destination was not announced this trip. Some pilots make the flight more personal with their messages with their PA system. No need to be interrupted a movie we are enjoying for the promotion of inflight purchase though."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Pros: "The window shades were so cool. Seat was small but fairly comfortable and I like the foot rest."
Cons: "No vegetarian options on the main meal menu"
Pros: "Very helpful staff. Easy check in. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Landing was horrible worse landing I have ever had"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to lightning strike on arriving flight, we were transferred to non stop EVA Airline so we can get home and not need a connecting flight in Japan. JAL did all these arrangements without us requesting it. They also were very polite and got our luggage in time to be on the flight with us. JAL is truly a top airline in the world."
Pros: "Fast and eady"
Cons: "Couldn't pick seating or check in online so I was separated from my husband"
Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"
Pros: "As expected not overly done nor less of comfort and services. Only it was confusing that I had to move from international terminal to Domestic terminal due to first transfer was with in Domestic airport."
Cons: "I have purchased Japan Airline to travel but unexpectedly I had to deal with American Air for half of my flight. God help them please. It was hell from start to finish. Japan Air, I feel sorry for you that your alliance with American Air."
Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"
Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."
Pros: "The courtesy and professionalism is a 10."
Cons: "Checking in with Japan Airlines was a serious hassle. I had my e-ticket but they kept asking me if I had already paid. The flight was apparently overbooked but than at the last minute, they gave me and my girlfriend seats separated from each other. I sat in the back, she sat in front. The tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."
Pros: "The stewardess of the flight from LA to Osaka was awesome , I don't remember her exactly name , I think she is older then other crew members working that day on economy class . She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter . The stewardess saw that and helping me a hand . I wish every airlines has someone like this crew member . Thank you so much for the awesome service on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"
Cons: "Like all of it except lack of vegetarian option for food"
Pros: "Seats are extremely comfortable even in economy. Service was attentive and very gracious. Both meals were above average for airline food. Made a 12 hour flight seem much shorter!"
Pros: "All were very polite and were very through when checking the cabin before departure and landing"
Pros: "All fright attendant are so nice and polite, also pretty. The meals are great and they served nice ice cream for dessert, the good quality ones! The bathroom was always clean, they keep it up so well. there was even toothbrushes and paper cup! I really enjoyed it even though I was in economy."
Cons: "only limited number of movie."
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The level of service in Business Class was perfect. Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "I thought the food was just so so. However, that's always a matter of personal taste."
Pros: "Superior service in a great and spacious plane."
Cons: "Seats are a bit flat and shallow, besides that it was awesome!"
Cons: "Food, especially before landing"
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."
Pros: "A meal on a two hour flight is an amazing perk!"
Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "Service was amazing and made me feel like I was in first class."
Cons: "The food wasn't good and the seats seemed outdated relative to other JAL flights I have taken on this route."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"
Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"
Cons: "on a 12 hour flight they served meals only twice, at the beginning and at the end.. i was really starving in-between for somethign heavier (though u can ask for those biscuits etc).."
Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "During the flight the air hostesses we're constantly attending to passengers. Excellent flight."
Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."
Pros: "I enjoyed the amenities. I flew economy and was treated like a first class. Will definitely fly with Japan airlines again !"
Cons: "Everything was great !"
