Airline reviews

"The crew at the check-in counter was super-helpful and exceptionally kind."

Pros: "It was a great service overall!"

Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"

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: "I didnt get bulk head seats that are near the restroom for my disabled father. He had a terrible flight"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."
Cons: "At check-in counter in MNL, the JAL agent mistakenly told me that I don't need to claim my bag and re-check at DFW before heading to final destination MEM. Food wasn't as good as previous JAL flights earlier this year and last year. That said, it's still better than other airlines."

Pros: "friendliness"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "The crew provided excellent service and the food is really great."
Cons: "My only issue was the other travellers not related to JAL. I was unable to properly sleep due to the toddler's whining and the senior who stopped me from reclining my seat."

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: "Crew very helpful. Seat roomy."

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."

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

Pros: "Service was excellent and seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "food from manila to japan was excellent,food japan to vancouver was not...could only eat half of it"

Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Cons: "I wasn't able to pre-select my seat."

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

Pros: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "Very nice quality crew and consistent service. Very helpful at desk check-in. Compared to US airlines, is much prefer Japan Airlines!"
Cons: "The flight was late to board. The crew was polite but not overly friendly. I wish they had an earlier flight so we didn't have a 15 hr delay in Narita but I guess the itinerary is what it is."

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: "When I checked in for my flight it was fast, efficient and friendly. Their Manila staff is awesome! I was very impressed and happy with their service. I will be using JAL again."

Pros: "The service is excellent and the quality of food is much better than most international airlines. Haven't used Japan Airlines in years but their service has been exceptionally consistent."
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system and the not-so-clean restrooms (perhaps due to a full flight or that passengers are just plain dirty)."

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: "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: "Great service. Great in flight entertainment. Served a meal. Had USB charge port. Spacious even though I was in the last row."
Cons: "Wish they offered a vegetarian meal, however the food was great and I still was satisfied with the parts I could eat."

Pros: "The check-in was flawless and gave me accurate information about my luggage being checked all the way through. I had an overnight layover in Tokyo and they handled my luggage the way I expected."

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: "That it was comfortable."

Pros: "Clean :)"

Pros: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The Pilot communicated to the passengers only one time during this 4 1/2 hour flight. The flight attendants were making the announcements for arrival information and timing. Maybe in this culture the Pilot is above speaking to the passengers."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and solicitous and helpful. This is my third trip with JAL and I. Happy about it."

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: "Seats in cos are comfortable and plenty of leg room compare to US airlines. Food selection is very good as well as the service. Flight Attendants were very friendly and attentive. Will fly JAL again!"

Pros: "Service from cabin attendants was excellent, specially the crew announcing up coming turbulence, foods, landing. Price is good as well."
Cons: "No big deal, I don't care some of the food, smells fishy. Like I said no big deal, still using Japan Airlines."

Pros: "Clean and very good service."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "The space, the courtesy of the staff, the food. Loved the noodle breakfast."
Cons: "Could not understand the announcements ... what a thing to "complain" about. Could not choose out seats online."

Pros: "food was great flight attendants are courteous and reliable"

Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."

Cons: "Due to COVID, we were not able to travel to the Philippines on the time originally planned. We didn't get the full refund."

Cons: "Friendly and courteous stewardess. All it takes is a smile that makes your long trip a better experience."

Pros: "Great crew and very good legroom."

Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Was seated near some noisy distractions i.e. crying baby."

Pros: "Super friendly and accommodating flight attendants. Nice touch with free snacks onboard."
Cons: "Seats get very uncomfortable over time. More leg room."

Pros: "Crew needs to not assume that Asian passengers are Korean as i was being converse in Korean throughout the flight."

Pros: "korean air is always great, service was awesome"

Pros: "Comfortable chair foods and wheel chairs awesome"

Pros: "Every thing was excellent. The crew was very courteous and gracious."
Cons: "Unfortunately we had about a 1/2 hour delay due to congestion. Not the fault of the airline."

Pros: "For economy class it has been the best experience, mainly because seats were a little more roomy than other airlines I’ve flown with."
Cons: "Entertainment was not so great, small selection of movies."

Pros: "Very efficient crew. Good food. Good movies."
Cons: "More room around seat."

Pros: "Great service. Clean plane, good seating"

Pros: "Got me there and back on time!"
Cons: "Could've had a larger movie selection"

Pros: "Well equipped economy class. More leg room than others. Food is ok."
Cons: "Other carriers tend to be cheaper(but also not as good)"

Pros: "Wheelchair assistance"

Pros: "Ended up in the middle seat even though i booked the flight 7 months ago"
Cons: "bad seating. the Korean air website would not let me pick my own seat in advance"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Not enough movie selection and the food selection"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "At first, the plane was delayed for 4 hours due to weather. But then even when the plane was simply sitting on the tarmac, the airport would later delay for another 3 hours cleaning the airplane because they said that they lacked enough manpower to clean it."

Pros: "they were on time and very polite."

Cons: "Boarding could have followed through with the row system rather than everyone all at once."

Pros: "I dont have somebody sitting beside me"
Cons: "Boarding and Food"

Pros: "Superb courtesy and attention."

Pros: "Overnight flight to San Francisco, the crew is stellar. They are calm and friendly and speak English well. I liked the food options, I would recommend sticking with the American choices if you're not used to Korean food. The dinner was actually pretty good. Entertainment options are plenty, I watched 3 movies and a documentary. The flight maps and outside cameras are great, and it showed that the pilots were constantly trying to find smooth air while the first portion of the flight was bumpy. They found it and the rest of the flight was fairly smooth."
Cons: "Aside from the turbulence, which is no fault to the airline, the only other issue was a smelly bathroom in the back that spread out a few rows. I wasn't sitting back there but I would have liked a freshener if I was in those back rows."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seat and space friendly workers."
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "Air conditioning low and uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"

Pros: "The in-flight experience is just fine."
Cons: "It was painful and required multiple phone calls to get a seat assigned. I kept being fobbed off until later... "you can pick your seat when you check in 48 hours before". "You can't check in now because it's a US flight, so it's only 24 hours". "You can't check in now because of visa documents something you have to check in at the airport". None of this was written down, or even satisfactorily explained when I tried to understand what was going on. Next time I'll fly Asiana on the hope they have a better online seat selection system that doesn't involve bizarre US checkin policy."

Pros: "great flight attendants"
Cons: "Clean, great services, and good food"

Pros: "Everything was so good.food, service, crew, entertainments etc."

Pros: "flight out WAS excellent, boarding was quick, attendants were extremely courteous, seats were clean and comfortable, as can be expected, food was disappointing, only because i heard it was very good, entertainment was great, and free. rated flight home GOOD because the attendants seems hurried, all else equal."
Cons: "food was disappointing but better than most american airlines"

Pros: "I liked the service and the touch screen TV. The flight attendants were nice and friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like how cramped the seats are."

Pros: "There was enough leg space even though we were couch and the flight attendants were nice. They also fed us regularly and gave out snacks and drinks so this made the 15 hours plane ride more pleasant."
Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been. I thought it was a one time issue but it was also hot on the flight back as well."

Pros: "I liked the spacious seating, up to date entertainment and snacks, plus food even though a short flight. I found the male stewards on this flight a lot more helpful I'm not saying the women weren't as well. Gender balance is good. Overall everytime I have flown Korean Air the service has been exceptionally pleasant and I feel confident and safe. Knock on wood I hope they keep striving for excellence and not lose it along the way like so many other airlines over the years."
Cons: "The constant interruptions of messages while watching movies. All the lights along the ceiling of the plane seem to be a lot brighter on day and night flights. Softer lighting be a little bit more comforting to the eyes, besides don't each seat have its own light source if extra lighting is needed!"

Pros: "Good accommodations were nice. I received a sleeping mask on my first leg without asking."
Cons: "Little did I know there was a cat on the flight and my allergies started acting up. If I had known there was an animal on the plane, I would have taken some allergy medication."

Pros: "Flight comfortable, service superb, clean and smooth flight. They went all out to make everyone feel as comfortable as they could."
Cons: "Scrambled eggs were overlooked. Breakfast lacked variety. Otherwise, it was all good."

Pros: "Service and Food was great. The hygiene was good."
Cons: "The audio on inflight wasnt working on leg 2 of the journey i.e. from Seoul to SFO"

Pros: "Crew members are very courteous, one of them specifically checked on me to ensure I was comfortable and brought me Tylenol!"
Cons: "The Entertainment selection on a long flight is limited!"

Pros: "Nice crew, food and service"

Pros: "The food, available movies, and crew were all very good. The crew did a wonderful job."
Cons: "The flight was late for take off and I was disappointed that there was only one Japanese movie available for the flight."

Cons: "Could have had more options in terms of movies on the flight, such as more South Asian and more Western movie options. They also had a limited drink selection, and the wine was not that great."

Pros: "The boarding was efficient and the crew was nice, polite, and mostly spoke English, which is a huge benefit. The crew provided a pillow+blanket combination, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, several snacks, and lots of drinks including wine. As for entertainment, the flight includes several movies, tv shows, music, and games for free. I would definitely recommend Korean Air to a friend, but I would recommend that friend to bring a custom neck pillow."
Cons: "Although the crew dimmed the lights during the flight, I could never get comfortable enough in my chair to sleep. The chairs do not support the human body, they only offer rollercoaster type padding. There is no neck support, and the pillow handed out by the crew is too big to be used as a back or neck support. Even lying back, the chairs are uncomfortable. The food could have had some warning labels in English on them. Since I'm lactose intolerant and unable to read Hangul, it's difficult for me to pick food I can eat without problems."

Pros: "Service was nice and speedy"
Cons: "Seat was stiff"

Pros: "Always fly Kirean Air. Business class on these long flights are great. The new 747-8, gives you a bit more privacy and the stewardesses are attentive, pretty and professional."
Cons: "Turbulence!!!!! Keep thinking the wings will fall off. Lol"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not speak English so it was hard to communicate with him. The reservationist also told my friend that she had a seat that was like an Isle seat but it was next to the window with no exit access. The only exit access was passing the person next to her which is what she was trying to avoid."

Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terrible."

Pros: "courteous manner, efficient crew."

Pros: "Flight attendants are extremely gracious, helpful, elegant and resourceful. They give the best service. Take off and landing were good too. Korean Air has experienced pilots. Entertainment was varied and very good, just the noise was not very good. Meals are always great with three choices. You can drink anything without having to pay like on United Airlines."

Pros: "The service, quality of food, and aircraft itself were all exceptional."
Cons: "Unfortunately due to quasi-bad weather there was lots of turbulence"

"Airplane food was not good from Manila to Chicago. But the flight from Chicago to Manila - food was great! Big contrast"

"Food from Philippines to Japan was excellent but served a little late. Food from Japan to USA WAS LOUSY and they only served hot food one time for breakfast which means 2 hours away from arrival. Hot food meal should have been served 2 hours after boarding in an airport where everything ia closed after 9 pm. Some of the connecting passengers did not have a hot meal for at least 12 hours or maybe more."

Pros: "Cheapflights ..I will book my ticket from you again.. I am so delighted."

Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"
Cons: "Boarding felt like a standing cattle call. Some - not all - stews acted as though they were insulted to have to provide food and beverage service, as though they were too tired and/or impatient to deal w/ economy class."

Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"

Pros: "Entertainment offerings were good."
Cons: "I booked the flight thinking it was with ANA , it was on United which is a full step below in quality. My bad!"

Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful, the kind of people I wish that I could have spent time to get to know."
Cons: "It would have been really nice to have taller seats. I’m only a little over 6’3” with shoes on and the seats were still quit short and uncomfortable for me."

Pros: "Crew was good. The food was good quality."
Cons: "Boarding took along time and then the plane was delayed, not their fault but it made the trip less enjoyable. Manila is a poor hub."

Cons: "If flight wasn’t delayed."

Cons: "So far there was nothing that I didn't like. The food was good and the airplane was clean."

Pros: "My flight is at 9:50 am but I arrived around 5:30 am , as expected the line was already long and one of the crew told us the front desk will not open until 6:30. My husband reserved my ticket going back to US. I was assigned to seat on an exit, but when I went to the gate , one of a female employee keeps telling me if I'm aware I'll be seating on an exit and I said yes , I look for a vacant seat so I can relax while waiting, she went back again and asked me if the front desk desk gave me any paper about the task I have to do when seating on an exit. I read it and understand . She came back again for the third time and borrow my boarding pass and check something and asked me if I want to transfer to another seat, and I said no. I don't know what she wants me to do , but I'm so irritated because she keeps asking me the same question over and over again."

Pros: "Food, service"

Cons: "Everything. The best I I"

Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!"

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience. I enjoyed the food, the flight attendants were very nice, and I enjoyed the amenities as well."

Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."

Cons: "Not enough space to put my luggages"

Pros: "The flight was extremely comfortable. Entertainment was 10 on a scale of 1 to 10."
Cons: "Only one entrance into the plane. I was in the last row. Had to walk the length of the plane. Having a second entrance could rapidly reduce boarding time."

Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "Tray is too small and not able to use the entertainment system because it is too short for a tall person. I would be staring down the entire time."

Pros: "Everything excellent"

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

Pros: "The crew were friendly and attentive. The plane was clean and comfortable. Great movie choices."

Pros: "The staff was so very helpful and nice. Thanks a lot!"
Cons: "The great disinter service from the flight attendants made up for the delays."

Pros: "Customer Service"

Cons: "Someone sat on my row without notifying the crew of the seat change. After I notified the FA of the incident... even if it's a general rule that the passenger sits at the ticketed seat, the FA didn't do anything about it"

Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."

Pros: "The attendant were so hospital..The flight is so smooth even when we landed it was a very good experience."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent crew, comfortable seat, good food"

Pros: "flight attendant in business not as nice as sfo to narita"

Cons: "My suitcase was "lost" in Tokyo/Narita on the way to Shanghai. Don't know what happened. Got my luggage two days later. This isn't Kayak's fault. ANA should've done something to make this right."

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

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

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: "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: "Crew very helpful. Seat was very good, food excellent."

Cons: "The rebalance was worst I've ever encountered I was actually scared I prayed many times 4 yo get home safely I was not impressed with my last flight n also why were We delayed coming from manila we turn back many times n I had only 50 mins to catch my flight to Perth if we had landed wen we should hv I'd hv time to buy some gifts I'm.glad that Philippines airlines will fly direct yo manila from Perth come March n I'll use them from now on as it's a few times in the years gone that things has happened to me I forgave ur airline but now i not need to as hv other airline to fly n my darling come here 3 or 4 times each year but will use Philippines airlines URS sincerely Trevor frahm"

Pros: "Flat bed is wide and comfortable. Cabin crew was excellent."

Pros: "Great inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Have WiFi that is working"

Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."

Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."

Pros: "The crew was really nice. The plane was clean and comfortable."

Cons: "Kids playing and out of control and the flight attendants wouldn't do anything."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "With 15 and 1/2 hours on the flight ahead, I was dreading the long, tedium of sitting for hours upon hours. But Singapore Airlines made the time fly with friendly service right when you were getting hungry and pleasant assistance when requested. Thank you Singapore Airline Flight Attendants!!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "There was a passenger on the return flight who had the window shutter up during sleep time right across my row, and the cabin was so bright to sleep for me. I notified the crew but they were not keen on bothering the passenger"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "spicy chicken too spicy!"

Pros: "Amazing plane and crew!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "The food is getting worse"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."

Pros: "Always great and efficient service. Comfortable despite the limitations of the plane itself (don't particularly like Airbus planes)."
Cons: "Wish the food could have been better and the choice for dessert wider."

Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."
Cons: "The flight I was supposed to take from Nanjing to Hong Kong by Hong Kong Airlines in the afternoon didn't exist so I had to take a morning flight. Was given no warning and had to check on my own. The Singapore Airlines flight was on time though."

Pros: "Food was excellent, timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crew was not as friendly as I'm used to."

Pros: "It is really nice to have a direct flight option to Singapore"

Pros: "The service is top notch. The food served is not matched by any other airlines I have traveled with. The flight attendants are always very very professional. I try to make sure to get Singapore Airlines when I travel to Asia."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival. The A350 aircraft feels roomy. Most importantly, given the total duration of the flight, it was a pretty good experience on-board."
Cons: "The seats and especially the hand-rests on the A350 seem very slim and flimsy. The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."

Pros: "Airline was great"
Cons: "The customer service at Airfair.com is abysmal. I will NEVER do business with them again."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing i like"

Pros: "Very attentive and friendly stewardesses. Would definitely fly again on this airline."

Cons: "one of the passenger ticket seat was not allocated in same flight as with other two passenger. However they worried and somehow they handle through made all in one flight. Also one another thing, once they arrived in SFO, they could not get the flight assistant, they have to mange them selves"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The crew did a great job making sure everyone was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "Be friendlier for pets flying in the cargo hold. Reducing the capacity from 20 to 5 per flight and regularly increasing the fees is not helpful at all."

Pros: "EVA does a nice job getting all of the service out and making sure you have everything you want."
Cons: "If you are a big guy upgrade to exit row or economy plus. This is an airline that doesn’t generally serve people that are over 6’ or 200 lbs."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Most seats have reclining problems. Very stiff and difficult to adjust."

Pros: "Crew was great. Economy seat was like any economy seat on an airplane. The seats recline more than others I have flown on. The only thing that I liked was that the plane was not filled and I could stretch out a bit on some empty seats."
Cons: "The food was horrible."

Pros: "I loved the fact that once I got to Taipei I had a very short layover and back to SFO. Awesome"

Pros: "They let me sleep during dinner"
Cons: "It would have been nice to be given an aisle that had some empty seats because I have long legs"

Pros: "The service could be improved."
Cons: "The service could a little bit better English"

Pros: "The crew members were good but the seat is small with not much of leg room. Foods were suck & not appearing"
Cons: "Good appearing & tasty foods with better snacks"

Cons: "Everything could have been better"

Pros: "the new 777 aircraft, and friendly and efficient attendants made the flight a pleasant ride."
Cons: "the flight was delayed due to late arrival of the aircraft, and then we were delayed on the runway waiting for take off."

Pros: "1. Kind and accommodating flight attendants 2. Had a good variety of choices for food & drinks 3. I was lucky enough to be on a roomy flight 4. Bathrooms were clean and smelled nice 5. The provided earbuds/earphones are great since they provide a bit of noise cancelling or at least block out extra noise"

Pros: "First time flying EVA. They made it easy!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Excellent staff!"

Pros: "I was lucky enough to have extra seats next to me so I slept well on the plane. I appreciated how friendly the stewardesses were, and also the ease of boarding, the prompt food service, and cleainess of the plane (and restrooms too)"
Cons: "The dining options were ok, not particularly wonderful, but overall pretty good."

Pros: "The specifically enjoy the 1st class treatment and excellent foods served by the flight attendants. By pure coincident, a passenger fainted near me, I was able to see the professionalism displayed by the flight attendents."

Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Food was not the greatest"

Pros: "I was happy to be back on EVA after a bad experience on Thai Air."
Cons: "That I was not compensated in any way for my previous flight BR68 from Bangkok to Taiwan that was cancelled. I was put into another airline barely in time that had poor food, no entertainment & smaller seats. Waiting for EVA to respond with some sort of compensation so I don't have to switch airlines. ANA is looking really good right now."

Pros: "The flight to Taiwan from LAX was miserable. It was so hot i sweated the entire 14 hours. Was told they cannot adjust it. Easier to get blanket to be warm no way to cool off"

Pros: "The service and the overall experience. The movie selection and the food were also great."

Pros: "Everything is perfect"

Cons: "I was told to stop watching movies when we were descending. I was never asked to do that with other airlines. If it is due to safety issues, I would appreciate they informed us why we can’t watch the airline movies"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Small seats."

Cons: "A boarding pass ahd to be printed at the airport"

Pros: "Great service by the crew / flight attendants! Good food (to me) We lucked out due to not a full flight"
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection (though we did find some interesting Asian films to watch ....)"

Pros: "Helpful, professional, and friendly cabin crew, who are also easy on the eyes:) Individual movie screens."
Cons: "The food is mediocre at best. But it's no worse than most economy cabins. Need better movies."

Cons: "I have never sat in such terrible plane seats. First, there are FOUR seats but there are only THREE partitions at the bottom, meaning I had to share leg space and purse space with the stranger next to me. It's awkward enough sitting next to someone I don't know and having to worry about accidentally leaning on him when I fall asleep but having to constantly be in contact with his leg was very uncomfortable. I kind of got over it after awhile but I could tell the kid I was having leg time with was super uncomfortable since he would jerk his leg away every time it touched mine. Sorry to be harsh but I don't know how you're getting 9.0+ scores from the other customers. Yeah your flights are cheap but your seat options suck and the movies weren't good enough to make up for it. D+. You get what you pay for I suppose but your tix weren't that much different from the other more comfortable airlines."

Cons: "Hard to find a movie to watch, found only one and watched flight progress for the rest as it was more interesting."

Pros: "Good leg room and seats are comfortable. Food was better than most airplane food. Entertainment system was great as well!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were obnoxious about window shades. They could have come around with water a little more frequently as well."

Pros: "Very good. Staff is great"
Cons: "Need more water available throughout flight"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "20'' wide seat & 38'' pitch meal choices Great IFE"
Cons: "very crowed flight not enough choice left when reach my row (24A & B) ambient temperature too warm"

Pros: "Nice airplane! Loved the movie selections and the meals. Exceptional service!"

Pros: "Clean. On time. Efficient friendly service."
Cons: "Limited selection of films. Food was really bland. I expected much more from EVA. Disappointed. No in between meals snack offered. No comfort pouch offered (tooth brush, face mask, ear plugs, etc)."

Cons: "We could not get our seats assigned prior to check-in, and therefore had middle seats for a 12 hour flight."

Pros: "Great experience flying with EVA, boarded late but still arrived on time, better food than other airlines though still airplane food, flight attendants very courteous and nice"
Cons: "For such a long international flight, I would suggest offering more water throughout flight as I've appreciated on other airlines"

Cons: "check in at SFO was chaotic on the outbound flight, and the guy at the counter really fought me on the price of my surfboard bag. he wanted to charge me $300, when it was really only $100 for the size of bag I had. I called ahead and made sure of the size limit for the $100 fee and even went and bought a new bag to hold my boards specifically to fit. Also, had to go to a separate counter and wait in a separate line to pay the fee, which took quite a while and seemed VERY unnecessary."

Pros: "Great food service, comfortable chairs, and adequate entertainment on the screen."
Cons: "Crew members pulled out my earphones when they could have just asked me to take them out. It was a bit pushy of them and others still had their earphones in and they let them leave it in upon landing"

Pros: "staff was friendly. Planes very comfortable. Wine the whole way home. Movie selection great. I had a whole row of 3 seats together to myself for a 12 hour flight #winning"
Cons: "I didn't like the layover but that had nothing to do with Eva air. Eva air was great and I would def recommend to others"

Pros: "Great service! Modern planes with comfortable seats, great entertainment selection with your own personal display, and places to charge your mobile devices. I'd like more leg room because I'm tall, but their seats are WAY better than USA based carriers. Food is pretty good considering it's airline food. EVA is one of my top choices for SE Asia Travel."

Pros: "The Crew is so helpful and professional from Ground to in the Air everywhere in US, Taipei and Thailand."

Pros: "Good Customerservic."
Cons: "It's possible to told all the costumes that if they r sick or fought please wearing the mark . Thx you"

Pros: "Smooth flight :)"

Cons: "Eva Air is excellent, its just the 8 hour layover in Taipei was not.."
