Airline reviews

Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."

Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

Cons: "Entertaining in English"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"

Pros: "Seat in biz on 380 was comfortable. Crew good not great."
Cons: "Food terrible. Seat maintenance not good. Armless and remote didn't work properly. Boarding needed work. No biz priority."

Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."

Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."

Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."

Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

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: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"

Cons: "Over all"

Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."

Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."

Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"

Pros: "The staff are always very polite and professional. Food was fine (better the past years). Everything was punctual and orderly."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. The gray ones were much better (San Diego to Narita) in comparison."

Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."

Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"

Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"

Pros: "It was pretty comfortable for a 14hour flight and all the flight attendants were super nice and very helpful. Different then most airlines in my opinion. Next time I go to Japan it will be with Japan Airlines no doubt!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like Was leaving the plane."

Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "It was an evening flight, but the cabin lights were never dimmed, so it was difficult to rest."

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"

Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."

Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "Clean :)"

Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."

Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."

Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."

Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."

Cons: "Didnt realize that Veg Meal, i needed to explicitly request while checking in. ended having bread butter and deserts"

Pros: "Couldn't ask for anything more than what was offered. Flying is never exactly a pleasant experience, but JAL makes it as painless as possible. Food was excellent and staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times."

Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."

Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"

Cons: "Food is not that good"

Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."

Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"

Pros: "The upgraded seating."

Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."

Cons: "No complaints this time."

Pros: "Attentive crew !"

Pros: "Everything!!!"
Cons: "My experience overall is fantastic"

Cons: "What can you expect in economy?"

Pros: "Services to the senior citizen excellent... can't ask for more. Stewardess are all very pleasant. Thank you very much"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew did not accept tip. Food could be better."

Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room. The check in agent in Manila, Arnel (or maybe Armel) was especially helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Pax are advised to show up at least 3 hours before flight. My wife and I showed up 3hrs 45 min before takeoff. There were perhaps 40 to 50 people already in line ahead of us. But no checkin counters were open. The first check-ins began 3 hours prior to take off. By that time the line was backed all the way out into the main corridor. It would be MUCH better for ANA and the customer to begin the checkin process 3.5 to 4hours prior instead of 3."

Pros: "crew from the check in to airplane very good"

Cons: "19 hours overlay in ORD. I had to check out all luggages again. Terrible."

Cons: "The flight left late and it was extremely hot in the cabin. It was a good thing that our connecting flight was a couple of doors down or we would not have made it, we sat on the runway waiting for our turn"

Pros: "The leg space of the plane"
Cons: "Some crew hard to understand they English"

Pros: "Very Comfortable Equipment"
Cons: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "Customer Service"

Pros: "ANA is always on time and the crew is always attentive."
Cons: "The plane used for this flight was small for me. I am 6-4 and there's not as much leg room as in the larger planes. I always have to order fruit because the meals are only Asian style dishes. I would be happy with a sandwich."

Pros: "stewards very polite"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable"

Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food provided was tasteless"

Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Landing was rough and bumpy"

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and the food was amazing. Entertainment was also very good daughter loved it"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time. The plane was nice too, nicer than most other airlines. The seats were roomy enough, as good as economy can be. Food was one of the best. The movies were pretty new which is always a plus. The crew was awesome. I get motion sickness whenever I ride anything, be it planes, buses, trains or boats, and the fact that the flight attendants kept checking on me put my mind at ease."
Cons: "There was a smell of old sweat odor from the seats, maybe table. Plus my table was still wet when I opened it. So that was kind of gross."

Pros: "The service crew are excellent and very polite. Definitely like the new window feature."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."

Cons: "i asked a crew for a drink.. and they refused."

Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to delays from first flight"

Pros: "Excellent food and service"
Cons: "None"

Thank you very much for the wonderful experience we had."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Not a single thing. I will be talking to a reporter about this since they are interested in the story"
Cons: "I left 3 hours early from my hotel. This was my first time ever being in the Philippines so I did not fully grasp the amount of traffic. I arrived at the check in counter with 52 minutes to spare and they told me I could not board. The plane wasnt even boarding passengers yet. I even went as far as to say that I would leave my luggage as I had to get on the flight. They did not allow this either. They said that I would need to get on another flight. To add insult to injury they did not credit me with ANY of what I had purchased for my previous flight since I ordered through Kayak. I am 100% dissatisfied with ANA and I am asking kayak to rectify what they have done. I have already emailed ANA upper management and will be taking this to social media, the news, and any other outlet I can find. I had to pay for a hotel, miss 2 days of work and pay for a 700 dollar "premium" seat ticket since that was all they claimed they had. I find that last part funny, since I saw about 12 empty seats on my flight. I am hoping to hear from kayak so they can explain why they do business with a company that clearly does not care about it's customers."

Pros: "Food and service was excellent"
Cons: "Aircraft airconditioning was quite hot."

Pros: "Legroom and cabin ambience"

Pros: "Entertainment/video options were good. I was upgraded to Economy Plus, which meant significantly more legroom and more comfortable seats."
Cons: "I could not chose my seat for this flight. It was a HUGE hassle. Flew with boyfriend and we were automatically put in seats that were 20 rows apart. We could not choose our seats online, or at airport. We had to wait until we were at the boarding gates, and all of the seats were taken."

Pros: "I bought two very expensive tickets and the seats were blocked by the pilot for his family, so my son had to travel in the simple business, that is a lot cheaper"

Pros: "Crew is always very polite......."
Cons: "Food...........all Japanese style..........upsets my stomach."

Pros: "It was short flight and I chatted with other passengers from Canada. Even helped them with their entertainment controls."
Cons: "Just boarding, people still want to get ahead in line, even though I was already in front."

Cons: "No personal screens, and the United flight crew seemed very impatient with me and others."

Cons: "no"

Pros: "They automatically moved my luggage to the next plane. No need to go through customs in Tokyo."
Cons: "The Price."

Pros: "Excellent service overall. Very competent and friendly cabin crew. Attentive to all your needs. Special shout out to Ms. Mori at NH 6 section/seat 28C who tirelessly worked with a smile all flight long."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. We almost missed our flight! Be prepared for security, immigration, then shuttle to your gate. Don't get distracted by the good cheap eats, and omiyage!"
Cons: "United Food for international flights is not that good. I've had better with Delta."

Pros: "Crew was polite."

Pros: "I love the food and services I love the new airplane."

Pros: "Staff was courteous, comfortable flight"

Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change"

Pros: "The seating was very uncomfortable and cramped I"
Cons: "I’m really not sure. The seat felt like I was sitting on a rock and I had a lot of trouble moving so as not to disturb the person seated next to me."

Pros: "Seats were ok but they often were out of vege options"
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade to business class but the process was problematic— had to be done at transfer desk not at gate — after i had been thru security ☹️ Discouraged ne from trying"

Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

What a way to start our holidays."

Cons: "The food was terrible, the seats were extremely uncomfortiable."

Cons: "horrible customer service at the airport. very unaccommodating."

Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I am platinium and got treated that way!!"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Economy class seats and the food table"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Good flight"

Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."

Pros: "Overall the flight was great"

Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."

Pros: "Food is awesome and plentiful. Crew is great. Plentiful entertainment options."
Cons: "The economy seats are just not comfortable. The entertainment system is glitchy"

Pros: "Quality entertainment."
Cons: "Staff did nothing about crying children for the entire flight. Food was awful."

Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The sitting quarters were so cramped. Maybe next time I'll save an additional $500 to go up a class but it was so smashed. It did not leave room for me to use the desk to eat or use my laptop."

Cons: "I had three tickets (one my wifes which wasnt cancelled), wanted to utilize that since I was travelling with Toddler. The crew kept having some sit in that seat and that was a major concern for me"

Cons: "The Airlines is saying, They notified the travel agent. I did not receive any emails. I was able to do web checkin. Only when i went to the airport, I was told, the flight got cancelled. Had to stay 24 hours in Bangalore. Very BAD service."

Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."

Pros: "Clean plane, good cabin crew, and it was nice being offered a meal while only on a 2-hour flight,"
Cons: "Compared to other airlines the entertainment is not as good, and the tv screens are quite dated."

Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The personal entertainment units had a USB charging outlet. That should be the standard in a smartphone world"

Pros: "They took care of my mom's heavy luggage and changed her to better seat."

Pros: "Between the legs of my Asiana flights, I had a 9-hour overlay at INC. Upstair in the same area with the pricey and exclusive lounges for elite travelers, there was a "Nap Space" or "Nap Place: a large suite of rooms with maybe sixty comfortable couches to catch up on missing sleep... with no sign-up required and no supervisory staff. And totally free of charge! Every airport should consider having such a welcomed service. Also at INC, bona-fide transit passengers with a outbound boarding pass can take a free shower (soap and towels provided as well?). Wow. These amenities surely make INC one of the least loathsome airports in Asia at which a day-long layover may be spent."
Cons: "No downside!"

Cons: "nothing special. delayed."

Pros: "Generally uneventful experience. Nothing bad happen. We had individual screen entertainment in economy. The bathrooms are nice."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and professional. The food was pretty good, though not excellent."
Cons: "This was a tired old aircraft not up to international standards for business class. The entertainment package was virtually nonexistent. There was no menu, and you just scrolled through channels to see what was already playing. There was no watching from the beginning of the movie, and no rewind or pause function. The video quality was abysmal, as if you were staying in a cheap budget hotel with an antenna TV. There was no privacy on this 11 hour flight, As you sat immediately adjacent to other passengers, unlike on the other long-haul carriers. I have had better experiences in premium economy on other airlines. This aircraft should be retired or seriously upgraded to justify the added expense of business class."

Cons: "Too long"

Cons: "2 and half hours delay made me crazy and caused a lot of damages for the time and parking fee for my entire family, who were waiting for me at the airport!"

Pros: "The crew was professional, boarding was smooth, and service overall was great. Its why i continue to fly with this airline"
Cons: "Im sure it has nothing to do with the flight crew but i would love for my flights to actually arrive on time (+/- 10 mins) this 30-45 min delay on the runway is getting old (normally leaving from NRT)"

Pros: "The friendliness of the flight crew was great. The leg room is better than other airlines."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment options on my second flight compared to my first one."

Pros: "My expectations of the flight were met or exceeded. I really enjoyed the food as well."
Cons: "There were no problems with the flight."

Pros: "Excellent first experience with Asiana... The flights were on time, the flight attendants were kind and helpful, AND my vegan meal was very tasty! Will definitely be flying with you guys again :)"

Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like about the airline"

Pros: "none"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "The flight attendants are nice and service is excellent."
Cons: "The planes are old, have no wifi, and poor entertainment. But worst of all the seats SUCK! I had a window seat and there was a metal box in the foot space! A 10 hour flight with no place to put my feet or legs. The seat was cramped and unbearable. I noticed every window seat has this box. This should never be designed for a transatlantic flight. I will NEVER fly them again. The food was pretty nasty too. Rubbery chicken and the omelet was gross at breakfast. The check in process was terrible. Everyone just files in line, no order to boarding people."

Pros: "Asiana airline service was great. Attendants were so kind and gentle."

Pros: "Service was very professional and the food was good too."
Cons: "No qualms with this trip. Everything was good"

Pros: "Good food, polite crew, efficient and flexible with baggage."
Cons: "All of our 4 Asiana flights left late and arrived late, making us miss one connection on the way to Japan. We luckily allowed a lot of extra time going home because our flight was more than an hour late again."

Pros: "Great entertainment. Good selection on movies. Food is good."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Much better than US."

Pros: "Got a court date and want to change the flight date. The cost to change the flight cost more than buying a new ticket. So stayed home instead and lost the purchase ticket."

Pros: "The food is the best among all airlines."

Pros: "Very professional and attentive staff.... Probably the best airline I have every experienced"
Cons: ".."

Pros: "All the usual good things with Asiana -- flight attendants, politeness, efficiency in the cabin, good food."
Cons: "Upon arrival back in Seoul, the bridge would not work properly. We had to wait on the airplane for 45 minutes, causing all of us to miss the last buses from the airport to our neighborhoods. What is usually a 12,000 KRW bus ride turned into a 130,000 taxi ride. (The jimjilbang downstairs was full.) If they had brought out stairs and buses immediately, instead of waiting so long, we might have made it to the buses."

Pros: "For one, wanted to avoid flying to Manila on the way to Cebu and back as I had less than memorable experiences at the airport and Icheon Airport was the completely the opposite. The food and service was excellent."

Cons: "Change Flight cost too much"

Pros: "Food was great, seats reclined further than I expected them to, and personal TV was large."
Cons: "Movie and TV options could have been better, but charging both 120v and USB was available, and selection was fine."

Pros: "The food, entertainment, USB outlet, the staff is great. In feb I will continue to use Asiana again"
Cons: "Everything was great! I'm not the complaining type. I'm totally happy with it WIFI would be nice though"

Pros: "Flight quality was good"
Cons: "The return flight had delays."

Pros: "Very limited choice of movies and the system is slow and out dated"

Cons: "When I missed a flight due to a missed connection this airline refused to rebook my flight directly. I had to go through just flying.com who were just as incompetent. I will never use KAYAK, justfly, nor Asiana airlines ever again. Poor customer service."

Cons: "Wish there was a bigger movie selection"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "I was very impressed with crews helpfulness, the quality of the food and entertainment."
Cons: "My wife and I are both Asiana Gold Club members. When we recently tried to board a plane in Inchon, Korea for a return flight to San Francisco we were told that we could not board though the gate labeled "Elite/Gold Club members" but had to stand in the long line of Economy class customers. When I asked "Why", I was told it was for Star Alliance Gold Club members, not Asiana Gold Club members. There was no indication on the sign there was a difference. Don't get me wrong, I'm not so disturbed about standing in the long line. I was upset because of the implied difference in the Star Alliance Gold Club benefits vs. Asiana Gold Club benefits and, as far as I am aware, the unpublished differences so when we as customers are at the airport trying to operate within the system, we know what to do. Please confirm there is a difference and what those differences are. Jerry"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food entertainment seats bathrooms"

Pros: "Flight crew was so kind, food was tasty"
Cons: "Headphones/headphone jack didnt work well and was too short to see the screens- they dont tip down; was difficult to hear announcements- the electronic speaker wasnt loud/clear enough"

Cons: "Crew did not care passengers"

Cons: "The cabin smelled very bad. Like sweaty clothes. Air quality not good. Also, too cold at times."

Pros: "Kind crew smiling, good quality of the food (all is free), variety of entertainment program"

Pros: "The outlet on the armrest for the headphones was broken. 10+ hour flight and unable to watch a movie or listen to music. Flight was fully booked, so I was unable to move to a different seat. Flight attendants were very kind. Food was terrible and it took forever to get a drink - served AFTER the meal was served. When later beverages were offered, it was coffee/tea at one point. Other than that they walked around with a tray occasionally with glasses of orange juice or water -- no ice. Only passed through with the full beverages cart once during the fight. I completed a complaint form and still have not heard back from the airline. Paid full price for a one-way ticket. Did NOT get muy money's worth."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Polite staff, better than good meals, excellent movie choices (lot of international films) and provide you with pillow, blanket, headphones and slippers!"
Cons: "Delay in departure, but made connecting flight. Crew could have been more helpful in providing information about connecting flights."

Pros: "The crew was extremely efficient and friendly. They made sure everyone was accommodated."
Cons: "The plane itself was old, meaning it had less leg room. The entertainment system was also an old, channel-based system, which meant you had to start on time to watch a movie, and could not choose which one you wanted to watch at which time. The screen display resolution was also very poor, as were the movie choices."

Pros: "Love to take Asiana airline. Foods is excellent and services are great."
Cons: "One thing I donot like they cooperate with many other airlines."

Pros: "Really enjoyed this flight. My first time on Asiana Airlines. It's awesome that they're Star Alliance and give United Miles."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Great crew. Great flight. Head Flight Attendant made sure everything went perfectly and her ability to speak English very well was just a bonus."
Cons: "Check-in process was longer than I expected, but still had plenty of time to get through security and to my gate."

Pros: "EVEN WITH A 10 HOUR LAYOVER IN SEOUL I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH EXCELLENT AIRPLANES AND SERVICE FROM CEBU TO SEOUL, AND THEN FROM SEOUL TO SAN FRANCISCO."
Cons: "WISH I HAD A TICKET LIKE LAST YEAR, STRAIGHT TO IAH FROM ICN ON ASIANA AIRLINE"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."

Cons: "Food and drink service"

Cons: "Finest Airline and service I have encountered and I am almost 2 million miles!"

Pros: "Well fed and provided beverages on trip. Food not gourmet----but what do you expect? Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Sure could use a little more leg room. I am 6'2"--so know I am taller than the average bear, but I think even a 5"8" man or woman finds the legroom a little tight---especially on a 15hr flight. On a 3 to 5 hour flight--OK. The legroom was durable--but you asked waht could be better and that point sticks out in my mind."

Cons: "Less fog in SFO"

Cons: "Sitting place too small"

Pros: "Efficient, courteous and early arrival"

Pros: "The crew was nice but that’s about it"
Cons: "Maybe a 333 in economy rather than a 343 Seats were too congested. Hardly any place to move"

Cons: "Better food"

Cons: "Delayed without notice."

Pros: "SMS Informing new schedule of the flight"
Cons: "Please change the food"

Pros: "Flight was not delayed"
Cons: "Economy seating needs more leg room. Carry on baggage weight is just 15 lbs."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too cramped not enough space staff are not friendly will not fly Cathay again"

Pros: "I had three previous satisfying flights in this airline- this one was not so and unfortunately it was a long flight."
Cons: "Tris time thenplane felt old, my headset didn’t work, the food was not satisfactory ( I ordered vegetarian), and the staff was just not very friendly."

Pros: "Plane was clean, staff was attentive; flight was very smooth"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Cathay is usually a solid airline to fly with. It’s comfortable even in economy and the staff is pleasant and usually efficient."
Cons: "The delayed boarding process and the bottleneck once people were boarding didn’t allow for the flight to depart on time."

Cons: "On time - all good."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Older plane"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Older plane"

Cons: "The rush at lay over to get to the next plane. No time even for just a cigarette, before the long flight to NYC."

Pros: "The cabin crew was nice, courteous, and professional. The cookie and juice were good. The variety of music was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Airport crew leaves a lot to be desired. The passenger next to me took up too much space- no fault of the airline tho. The soy chicken was salty."

Pros: "The crew is always very polite and professional."
Cons: "I fly every two months and have to watch the same movies over and over. There should be a more frequent change. I just can't handle airplane food...........even if its Italian or American, it still tastes Asian."

Pros: "The crew's attention to passengers request in The Economy class"
Cons: "Nothing for what I paid"

Pros: "Friendly crew and pilot. Smooth take off and landing."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat won't recline"

Pros: "Spaciousness of the plane Flight Crew Cleanliness of the plane Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Food Luggage space of cabin not enough Promptness of plane ,our plane was late Manila airport terminal 3 no air-conditioning while waiting Boarding was disorganized last seat should board first no announcement from crew and no implementation of plan. Need constant communication from staff for better boarding experience."

Cons: "We missed our connection because Cathay was delayed. They booked us in a nice hotel in Hong Kong but failed to reimburse us for food as promised. In fact, no one was able to prove us with proper information on how to handle refunds. The next flight was late over an hour. No reason provided. Overall, no one knows what's up and any inconveniences are the customer's problem to deal with."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"

Pros: "Cathay Pacific takes great care of you. The food is good (for airline food anyway), the staff is helpful, and there is a pretty good selection of free movies. I would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "Boarding was fast seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The food was very minimal"

Pros: "Great crew. But, they ran out of breakfast choices early."

Pros: "there an attentive airline. Good service an on time flights"

Pros: "The attendants were fantastic!"
Cons: "I ordered a fruit plate and it was acceptable however, my boyfriend had yet another bad meal."

Pros: "Boarding was a bit of a free-for-all even though they called specific rows. Still, it went fast and everything else was fine. Seats were as comfortable as can be expected for economy. Food was pretty good, entertainment was great and the crew was polite and helpful."

Pros: "The food and crew attentiveness were excellent. Personal entertainment system that allowed me to also easily charge my mobile phone was great."
Cons: "There was no order to the economy class boarding process. All rows all seats board at one time."

Pros: "Nothing wrong with the flights, but big issues with Cathay Pacific coordinating connecting flights after first flight was canceled."
Cons: "I was waiting and standing to find out about my rebooked flight for 3 hours. The Cathay pacific employees in Manila tried their best to get everyone on the next connecting flights out, but there was no proper system. Everyone was trying to handle the cases of multiple passengers rather than delegating tasks. PLUS the new flight went through an additional stopover in Vancouver... Was not messaged about any compensation."

Pros: "Crew were nice and accommodating. Food was good."
Cons: "Useless English movies and very few latest movies."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight in hongkong had a 10 hour layover and I was not helped with the hotel fees. Landing in JFK my flight was delayed 3 times then finally cancelled. I was asked to go to LGA for an 830 flight to PIT. The airline did not help cover any transport fees (IT WAS $14 USD!) Seriously?! And the bags did not get changed to the other terminal. Once I got to LGA my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked for the next morning. The airline did nothing to help me with a hotel or transport, absolutely nothing. I arrived at the airport for the 12:30 flight but that was delayed until 2:30 then 3:30 then 4:30 and eventually took off at 5:30. I was given no sympathy from any of the staff I interacted with. Everyone was rude to me, I did my best to remain civil and did not at anytime raise my voice. Although, looking at other customers it seems if I had made a fit or raised my voice I would have gotten better service. Absolutely ridiculous, I am never flying cathay again."

Cons: "I have heard that Cathay is one of the best airlines but my experience with Cathay on this flight is not something I can say I agree. I hate United, if I give United a 2 *, I would give Cathay Pacific 3* out of 5. The food served on my HKG - SFO flight was not good. Leg room is good but the seat in front is too close to your face when reclined. Staff and flight attendants are good, but I think ANA is the best in this department."

Pros: "The flights were mostly on time (except out of Manila because nothing is ever on time in the Philippines). Plane was spotless. Crew was very professional. Food was better than most."
Cons: "There could have been a better selection of movies instead of movies that appeal to teenagers. Ground staff somewhere along the way (likely in Manila) stole my brand new luggage tags from both suitcases. BUY YOUR OWN YOU THIEVES!!!!"

Pros: "Good service. Flight attendants are nice, food is not bad."
Cons: "The seats on this plane were worse than the ones on the shorter flight. Maybe it was just an older aircraft, but you'd think the longer flights would have the more comfortable seats."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice but that's the only thing I can say that was good about our flight."
Cons: "There was literally a "crazy man" on our flight. The flight attendants were having a hard time controlling him. He was climbing over seats, yelling at people, etc. My husband is a US Marshall, he finally got up and identified himself with his badge to the flight attendants and asked if they would like him to assist. He helped try and talk the crazy man down. So basically my husband was on guard for the whole flight, we couldn't sleep at all as he was watching and helping with the lunatic on the plane. When we landed, the police escorted the man off the flight and the head attendant said he would be placed on Cathay's "no fly list" I feel that Cathay should reimburse us for part of the flight due to the severity of the situation and the fact that my husband assisted the staff when he didn't have too! Again, not a way to spend your honeymoon flight having your husband have to work and not be able to relax and enjoy our time together."

Cons: "Same as said above. Quantity of food was not sufficient"

Pros: "Generally all the staff were quite courteous. Flight was quite comfortable. Leg space was better than the first leg flight from Bengaluru to Hongkong."
Cons: "Food i.e. AVML was absolutely mediocre. I almost went hungry, but for the snacks which were available whenever, I wanted. Luggage at the SFO airport arrived at the Carousal quite late. Most of the passengers, after clearing the immigration(which normally takes long), had to wait at the carousal for more than half hour to receive their luggages."

Pros: "the flight attendant was cleaning the toilet a few times."
Cons: "there's 2 meal that was serve all although it says snack through out the flight, I suggest the flight attendant serve snack in between that way passenger won't be too hungry."

Cons: "Would give 0 for food. No vegetarian food at all without special request."

Pros: "Service & food were good. Easily facilitted checked-in luggages."
Cons: "Requested assigned seats upon ticket purchase and upon gate check-in were changed. I have been informed about this seats re-arrangment and thatreally bothered me since this was our first time to fly Cathay. True enough, our seat assignments on our return trip to the US were changed and family were re-assigned seats away from one another. This matter I have confirmed both at the gate in Manila before our departure and was assured that we were all seated together, only to flnd out that it was not true. We flew Cathay upon recommendation from friends. Will we use Cathay again because of this issue? I will check other airlines for more accuracy on this matter."

Pros: "good skills flying through all kinds of turbulence. Though the meal is very small that cannot fill me up, the staff is willing to provide all alternative snacks."

Cons: "Missed flight"
