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 tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."
Pros: "The flight is on time,service is excellent."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food."
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: "I fly with JAL business class and it was the best business class I have ever experience. The crew was amazingly helpful and polite."

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Beverage size could be more"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."
Pros: "The fact that everything is included with the flight makes it very easy to fly with JAL. The staff was friendly and helpful when I was checking in. The agent tried her best to get me a window or aisle seat but was unable to. That didn't matter though. Airlines in the US should learn from them and treat their customers the same way."

Pros: "More leg room in Japan airlines. I decided to use JAL as much as possible. Stewardess are all nice and very attentive."
Cons: "Food is ok, but way so much better compared to the other airlines. The chair is not as comfortable (hard to sit) , but more leg room is a good advantage."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "Courteous and pleasant flight attendants...exceptional service."
Cons: "Couldn't book preferred aisle seat...assigned a center seat. Not adequate leg room."

Pros: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."
Pros: "Over all great"
Cons: "For 14 hours flight, we were given 1 meal and 1 snack ; that seems too little for a long flight. They didn't have whiskey, only beer and wine...really... I asked the flight attendant to put my cabin luggage in the space above the seats, because I am old and could not do it myself, and he first frowned and asked why....ridiculous"
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "If you can book Qatar Airways at a price competitive with any other major carrier then absolutely do - incredible service, plane, food, and overall experience that far exceed the competition."
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Pros: "Flight. Conections"
Cons: "Change flexibility, helpfulness"
Pros: "Excellent crew and service"
Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."

Cons: "Food - very mediocre and felt like each meal was similar"
Pros: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "The crew were so nice. But flights are very long, and coach is incredibly crowded & uncomfortable. Beverage service is frequent and generous with a good variety of fruit juices, soft drinks, red or white wine, etc."
Cons: "Using the video screen is a mystery tour - badly programmed. The Doha airport is an architect's Ego Trip and badly laid out, extremely long walks to get anywhere, ferocious prices for anything (carry snacks for your layover!). The smoking lounge doesn't even have a proper exhaust system so smoke permeates the terminal in the vicinity. Plus 4 bar stools hogged by rude, arrogant young Arab men who have NO respect or consideration for elders, disabled, etc. Incident with boarding passenger in Saigon was VERY badly handled & delayed departure over an hour, risking connections for a number of passengers. They cannot handle things well, yet crew is basically nice, kind. Food is AWFUL; saving grace is fresh fruit, roll & butter, yoghurt - the nice little side dishes."
Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Pros: "Excellent service on all 6 legs of the itinerary. Great selection of food and wine and entertainment. Superb seating layout in business."
Cons: "Frankly nothing!"
Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "I have booked the flight for my mom and I requested a wheel chair her, she Has a broken arm . And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"
Cons: "1- Flight from Delhi to Doha was very late, which made it chaotic for us to catch our connection at Doha 2- Entertainment choices were very limited"
Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."

Pros: "I like the crew."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Entertainment choices are good"
Cons: "Crew in economy section was not good, did not serve alcohol even once and when asked they said they will bring later but never did. Bluetooth audio did not work for me so I could not use my noise canceling headset."
Cons: "I do not find anything to complain. My first choice will be Emirates."
Pros: "Flight crew were excellent."
Cons: "Best flight ever. Everything was perfect . Best crew ,"
Pros: "Good like always"
Cons: "All perfect"
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable (in comparison to the other emirates flights I’ve taken), and the bathroom was very dirty (trash was full and towels were piled up on the sink)."
Cons: "Laptop bags are not allowed at New Delhi Airport. Only one carry on is allowed with no laptop bag. These are not Emirates policies. New Delhi airport has its own policies. Highly frustrating at that moment because these are not the baggage allowances anywhere else in the world"
Cons: "Crew was a little less cooperative than my usual Emirates experiences"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"
Cons: "Didn’t like behavior of Dubai airport’s staff. They were too rude and Newark wheelchairs helper were asking for too much tips. Are they allowed to ask for tips and speak rudely with senior citizens. Please give attention towards these problems"
Pros: "We liked the service that was given, the crew member was nice."
Cons: "We didn’t like how are seats were all messed up, my kids, my wife had all different seatings."
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."
Pros: "Good, entertainment & comfort"
Cons: "Crew not bad"
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Pros: "No commutation no help for transit"
Cons: "I am a women no help first time fling with them"

Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "The crew was bery rude and not helpful at all. Worst airline we have ever used"
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Pros: "Everything Emirates is the best"
Cons: "No reason to complain."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive."
Cons: "The food choices were not good. The tray included more carbs than any thing else...a roll, crackers and breadsticks. A lighter choice of a sandwich or a cheese tray would have been nice. Rather than small cups of water on a 14 hour flight, it would have been nice to have bottles of water."
Pros: "I am sure I did this review on ce already!"
Pros: "Very organized boarding"
Pros: "Crew and service were good. Not a fan of Indian food. Ran out of alternatives. You are leaving India. Might want something other than Indian."

Cons: "Food, stay at dubai hotel"

Pros: "The crew were nice, entertainment was very good"
Cons: "The Delhi staff were very rude, the baggage allowance was inconsistent in terms of inbound and outbound flights, was excessively charged!"

Pros: "Crew was particularly lively and friendly. The chocolates were awesome"
Cons: "No entertainment throughout"
Cons: "The seat bottom was very uncomfortable and made my bum sore the rest of the day."

Pros: "Even though we flew through turbulances the crew was able to manage their tasks. Plus beautiful stewardess."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, very good food, good entertainment"
Cons: "A little more clean seats"
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew"
Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."
Cons: "They lost our bags for the second time in 4 days. Both originating flights were late starting and made for impossible connections! Is Swiss ever on time? Frustrating for sure!"
Pros: "The service and the crew were fine"
Cons: "Seats are too small and terribly uncomfortable on such long flights."
Pros: "Mobile check in worked well. Onboard service is very good, with decent food and complimentary beverages including beer and wine. Seats are relatively comfortable. Extensive selection of TV and movie entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit helter skelter. It’s a rather annoying that selecting seats is only available for an extra fee. The A340s used on this route are getting a little on the old side, and the once state of the art in seat entertainment system has a tendency to crash frequently and require lengthy reboots."
Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."
Cons: "2 hours delay from jfk miss flight from Zürich to krakow wait 7hours next flight get in krakow in11clock baggage missing I’m not happy"
Pros: "Very courteous attendants."
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly, efficient, courteous Refreshments generous and excellent. Good movies."
Cons: "Rather than boarding economy passengers by row number, there is a free-for-all at the gate, and tedious blockage in the aisles as passengers wait for others to place carry-on luggage. More leg-room than United, but still a bit crowded for tall people. VERY BAD DESIGN of arm-rests, which do not go up all the way into the seat but instead jut out at an angle."
Pros: "I was very happy with the overall experience"
Cons: "The crew could have been a little more helpful"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Cons: "If I were a small person I would have been almost comfortable the seats were so narrow with no leg room so that trying to find a place for myself was laughable, unfortunately not the funny laughable. There is not a chance that I will ever again book an international flight on Swiss. I hope you share this with the airline."
Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."
Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."
Pros: "Left on time Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, half of the toilets not working for portion ao flight. Entertainment system not working properly on many seats"
Pros: "Everything !"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME BEFORE THE PLANE EVEN TOOK OFF!! My flights somehow got real messed up and everything down to my luggage had to be input manually. I wasn't sure if it was going to make it with me to the final destination. But it did! The head rest blew me away just as i sat. I love to know I can fall asleep and not have neck problems. And everything from the movies to the service to the food was great! My first international yet BEST experience in economy class was all worth it!"
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner. The warm croissants served at breakfast were a very nice touch."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, I could not get out of my seat as much on the return flight, so I did have some swelling in my feet."
Pros: "The service was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The business seats that we booked were normal economy plus seats with no one in the middle seat. The whole idea of booking a business class ticket is the extra comfort that comes with the lay flat seat or at absolute minimum on smaller planes the wider more comfortable seat. Neither of those were present on this flight. Calling this a business class is a rip off."
Pros: "the food was delicious, the movie selection was great, the seats were comfortable, the plane was chilly but they supplied us all with nice warm blankets, and I prefer it be cold over hot on the plane any day."
Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The staff was very attentive."
Pros: "A snack was actually served on board! With a beer if desired."
Cons: "Change of planes at gate produced some boarding confusion."
Cons: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Passengers completely ignored the commands of the crew and crew was unable to take control of the crowd (passengers refused to follow crew's multiple demands to sit down during the high turbulence, finally crew gave up to force passengers to take a sit). Several times, standing passengers fell on the sitting ines. When at the end of the flight, the issue was pointed out to the captain and supervising flight attendant, both became aggressively defensive to the point of being rude."
Pros: "Short flight.."
Cons: "They gave me and the 2 other black people who were flying, the seats all the way in the back. I'm never telling the people at check in "just give me any seat" ever again! It was so obvious I almost complained to all the attendants! I just tried to keep my cool... HORRIBLE FIRST EXPERIENCE TO EUROPE!"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on board."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."

Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Munich was very helpful when my boarding pass would not go through - I was not told I needed a new pass for that flight (as the first one had been cancelled and rebooked: 2 Air Berlin flights). No one was of help until this point, and the Lufthansa crew even offered to check on my baggage for us only to notice it never left Berlin; we didn't get it for 3 days. This did not surprise me because last time I flew Air Berlin for an 8 day cycling & camping trip, I didn't see my bike for 5 days (you can imagine this sort of ruins the entire point of the trip). After reading a lot of complaints with Air Berlin and never hearing back from their customer service (ever) after numerous forms filled out, I knew checking our bags with Air Berlin from the start would mean we wouldn't see them in New York. I even said to the Air Berlin employee at check in that I refused to check my bag because of my past experience and he "assured" me my bag would be at JFK when I got there. Ha. It was nice to see the Lufthansa crew shocked at how poorly this trip home was working out for my husband and I."
Cons: "After the cancelled flight, we were very disappointed to be rebooked with Air Berlin. We do not want to fly Lufthansa if they are so closely associated with Air Berlin, and will tell our friends the same."

Pros: "Service, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are too tight"
Pros: "Good cabin crew, good food Easy to use entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "After so many domestic flights of being shuffled around and interacting with flight attendants that seem to not like their jobs much and passenger's are just an annoyance, flying abroad on Luftansa was quite a different experience! The flight attendants were polished, professional, and actually wanted to provide a service. Their interactions made me feel like I was cared about and that they wanted my unique needs to be met. This made a 10 hour flight an enjoyable experience which I certainly didn't anticipate."
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Cons: "Without having any real complains I felt the crew could of been more attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. The cabin temperature was set very high (~75f or higher) the entire flight without any individual vents for airflow, so that many passengers were uncomfortable and sweating during the flight. The food provided was poor quality (for the meal, I chose chicken which was boiled pieces of chicken without any flavor - I feed my cats better!). I will try and avoid flying this airline in the future at all costs."
Pros: "Good food and beverages"
Cons: "Headphones are terrible"
Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."
Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"
Cons: "We missed the connection so never made this flight."
Pros: "Crew were attentive and the plane is always a great one to fly"
Cons: "Boarding was a joke as it's really bad add there is no real order and business class queue doesn't seem to have business people boarding but everyone"
