I like the airlines but because I used to fly with Japan airlines.this time not much entertainment and delayed flights and not comfortable compare to my previous flight. Food is not good. Flight attendant are confuse. I had to help other rider because they skip to serve him food.Over all is not Japan airlines that I used to ride.

Gate folks had trouble maintaining order during birding. Terrible experience. Flight ok. Food not the best. Deplaning ok.

Great flight. everything was good but food. Pasta for breakfast. Beef flavor dish(not much beef to be found) with rice and couple of small salads.

You did a great job JAPAN AIRLINES. Looking forward to experience again your utmost service in air!

Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."

Great staff and service.

Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Good as expected"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "On this day, I’m well please."
Pros: "I was trying to make a connection and the crew moved me up to the front to get off the plane faster."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Boarding process and take off was the most efficient - truly impressive! I don’t think this had anything to do with the airline, but every flight with them was so quiet (no crying babies/children, loud adult conversations), I thought I could hear the pin drop! Their safety demonstration was uniquely done by dancer, which made it interesting to watch every time! I left my jacket on one of my flights, but they returned it to me when I boarded the next flight - I was gratefully surprised! They had complementary tooth brush/toothpaste, ear plugs and eye masks in the restrooms. I thought this was a good way to reduce passing out items not all passengers wanted. I wish all airlines could copy these amazing features from them."
Cons: "Their meals were underwhelming- in four flights on my trip, they were basically the same main course. The rolls with margarine, same fruit and strongly cultural seasoned vegetables that were served every time, all of which I could not eat. I have liked every airline meals and hospital food, but their food was below institutional food quality. For an Asian airline, the flight attendants were rather crude in their speech and mannerisms. I could barely hear and understand the announcements in spite the fact that passengers were extremely quiet. Their choices of movies were very poor; it seemed that 3 out of 4 flights had similar options."
Pros: "Crew and attendants did very well"
Cons: "Gate change communication"
Pros: "Amazing crew and food; clean lavatories throughout the flight"
Cons: "Need more elbow space; 10 seats across in the economy section really soured the experience"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Late night flight, crew was good and timely"
Cons: "I got sick from the spaghetti dinner served 2 hrs before landing."
Cons: "Fair enough"
Cons: "I don’t need 3 meals. I need rest. I’d rather we turn out the lights"
Pros: "Very confortable full flat seat (surprising on a short flight), very good food. Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew were nice & the flight was on time."
Cons: "Food was ok but I was in the Economy class. I do agree with a review that no water was served during a long flight. Drinks were served only after a meal."
Cons: "Chicken pasta was cold on the returning flight. Flight crew didn’t come by with water that I saw, except before/with meals. Flight was very cold, even with their nice blanket."
Cons: "The crew were not very friendly, they went about their tasks but did not engage with the customers in a friendly manner. It was very much as though they were doing the minimum for the job/flight. For instance, when you board and sit down the first thing they give you is the menu and then the landing card. But I've just sat down I don't need these two extra pieces of paper immediately. I sat on an aisle and must have been knocked 5-6 times by the carts. After I was bumped then I hear the 'excuse us, carts coming through'."
Cons: "I don’t understand why flights don’t board from the back to the front. People at the back have to get past the ones in front still in the aisles to get to their seats."
Cons: "Great flight, and food was pretty good as well."
Pros: "Crew friendliness, comfortable seat"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "It was a long 9.5 hrs flight! Economy class is okay! Nothing wrong w the airline, its just not comfortable to sit for almost 10 hrs long!"
Pros: "All the staff were courteous and polite. Bathroom is clean and landing was perfect: it was so quite , I didn’t even know we touch downed."

Pros: "As always it's the professional kind efficient staff."
Pros: "The flight was good, quiet and smooth and we had a lot of legroom on the way to Seattle."
Cons: "The serve food was not that great. I wish that they have more options to choose from."
Pros: "I liked the service and the politeness of all the staff. The food and beverages were also great."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "the staff...very professional and warm...great amenities...food was excellent..very comfortable plane"
Cons: "had to inquire about cocktail service"
Pros: "Eva Air had attendants on the ground pointing us all in the right direction to catch our flights with the minimum delay! Such a Quick turn around I was expecting my luggage wouldn't even make the flight!! But it did!! Also liked their mood lighting to replicate the time of day, since they asked us to keep our shades pulled all the time. Nice restrooms and I appreciated the toothbrush, earplugs and eyeshades they stocked in the restrooms!"
Cons: "Seats were tight. I usually have food served that will acclimate you to your destination city time zone. Not so with Eva Air. Two dinners instead of a Breakfast."
Pros: "Quick boarding, felt like more leg room than usual, polite courteous staff, good movie selection."
Cons: "Food was good, but I've had better with other Asian airlines. They served me croissant with breakfast that was so dry, it crumbled all over my lap."
Pros: "Attentive crew, clean washrooms, decent chairs, great food, enough entertainment. It was easy to transfer trains in an airport we have never been to."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"
Pros: "Overall great service by the airline. No complaints to speak of for this leg or any of the 4 flights in total to which I utilized this airline."
Cons: "3 hour delay (approximate)! from scheduled departure out of Beijing (Peking Airport). Was no fault of the airline but rather the airport itself as I saw other airlines stacked up upon arrival and waiting for their gate assignment. Also other departures finally recieving a pushback from the gate after significant delays. EVA captain was good about keeping the passengers informed about delay and anticipated times for actual departure when the tower would inform him."
Pros: "Having an aisle seat on a packed glf"
Cons: "The attitude of some of the flight attendants. You ask got ice with your beverage and it's like I am asking for the world. And, then you get a couple pieces of ice if you're lucky but only have s glass of beverage. Is that ridiculous or what... both leaving the States and upon returning was the same situation...it's only ice..."
Pros: "Beautiful stewardesses on EVA, big aircraft."
Cons: "TVs are outdated and small. Not as roomy as the 777."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above, but there were not a lot of open seats, so we were moved to the bulkhead."
Pros: "Nothing. I find it ridiculous because I find a good deal on a flight I don't get credit for any of the miles!! I fly to Thailand 3-4 times a year and all I want is to get good service and when I have a three hour layover in Taipei to b able to go to the gold card lounge and relax!!"
Cons: "The seats are too small. There is not enough leg room. Very uncomfortable !!"
Pros: "i liked the emergency seat because I had more room"
Cons: "The flight from Seattle to Taiwan was one of the worst flights I ever had. Not only was there no outlet for me to do work, but the 2nd level of the plane was unusually warm and stuff. However flying back from Taiwan to Seattle was not as uncomfortable, it was still annoying to not have an outlet. Also the entertainment screen on those flights were really small. Lastly, the food overall was mediocre, but that was not as big of a deal to me."
Pros: "I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly."
Cons: "As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time."
Pros: "same as previous flight"
Cons: "same as previous flight"
Pros: "I became very light-headed during flight and received excellent and compassionate care. Wonderful crew."
Cons: "The food is fine but not great"
Pros: "No issues with boarding Departed and landed on time Nice blankets"
Cons: "Food was not good TV/movie options seemed limited Hot tea was very bitter"
Cons: "I had a strange experience with flight attendants who were obsessed with open and closed Windows (honestly why does it matter?) and was constantly being told to take off headphones which no other airlines make you do anymore. The flight attendants were just overbearing and rude at times."
Pros: "The stewardesses were outstanding and really seemed to care how we were treated. Fantastic"
Cons: "the entertainment from the flight from Taiwan to the Philippines was unsatisfactory in every conceivable way . No choices, no quality and the same for everyone."
Pros: "Friendly service, good food, nice aircraft."
Cons: "Air traffic controller delayed flight for 30 min."
Pros: "Personalized attention"
Cons: "The flight delay could have been announced over the speakers"
Pros: "Fast and easy to board nice crew worked fast and smooth large proposal for entertainment"
Cons: "more diversity of beverage offered Also please propose coffee or tea before/after dinner and breakfast, nobody proposed me and I thought it would come later but nothing came. I should have asked before the end of the service but I was surprised it wasn't coming automatically."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "I don't like cameras spying on us. More leg room."
Pros: "Changi. Wow.."
Cons: "Aircraft rather not modern."
Pros: "LOVED the cup of Ramen anytime snack and curved utensils for eating on a moving plane, genius! Service and quality of product is great. If possible, I will always Choose Cathay Pacific airlines over any US Legacy Airlines to Asia any day!"
Cons: "Stop shrinking the check-in luggage size and allowable weight every few years. It's a nuisance to have to buy new luggage every few years when perfectly working luggage has to be thrown away because of size requirement shrinkage."
Cons: "This airline will cancel your flight and blame it on customs in the US - the truth is the flight was undersold and they did not want to travel with so few passengers."
Pros: "Vegetarian oriental meal was good. Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hr. I was not notified on time to go make arrangements to go to the airport a little later."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Delay without infromation"
Pros: "nothing..."
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Particularly the FA in our section was amazing."
Cons: "No outlet charging for smartphone. Only USB charging was available."
Pros: "I don't know why now there was no little gift or stuff keep kids busy during the flight, but only movie."
Cons: "keep providing little gifts for kids"
Pros: "not too bad"
Cons: "not too bad"
Pros: "The crew was so polite and kind!"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Cons: "Food options listed on menu were not available. Breakfast was served so late that crew said not enough time to make/serve hot coffee or tea. During flight no crew ever came around to offer more water or liquid between meals. TV was in German with no instructions on how to change language to English. Bathrooms were not kept clean. Also, when boarding at the HK airport, after disabled and families, everyone was asked to board at the same time which resulted in one very long line of several hundred people."
Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."
Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"
Pros: "The overall service is great for the airfare price I paid. Can’t complaint! The new plane with central air control was a great idea; it was comfortable for the duration of the ride. That being said, I would definitely use Cathay Pacific again in the future for this price range."
Cons: "The wait time to take off was WAY too long. Luckily the entertainment was available right away on the screen."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"
Pros: "Overal, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "My headphone jack did not work, but I was able to switch seats. I could see that being a big draw back if I was not able to switch."
Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "Very hard to understand air host's english."
Pros: "They were really nice and the plane was pretty new"
Cons: "No bad experience"
Cons: "Crew not helpful or particularly friendly not sure if it was because we were not Chinese!"
Pros: "On time, easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Lack of variety in food choices, long wait at tarmac for take off from Beijing"
Pros: "Comfortable, good food, staff spoke English well"
Cons: "Bad Turbulence for about 1/3 of the flight. Arrived 45 minutes early, sat on runway - not Cathay's fault. What WAS their fault, was the AWFUL, AWFUL MUSIC played over the PA during the wait. It was like Chinese water torture. After more than 15 hours on the plane, it was a repetitive loop that they probably thought would be soothing, but it made me want to scream."
Pros: "Passengers was good."
Cons: "Cathay pacific airlines is one of the most riches airlines in the world. I was expecting Excellent nutrition food but it was very bad. I didn’t eat it. Breakfast was good. I hope catha pacific airlines will change their food next time. TY USA"
Cons: "Plane was old and not Super comfortable. Also no WiFi!"
Pros: "The crew and entire ground staff very courteous. Good entertainment choices. Crew tried their best to make a good experience."
Cons: "Decent 777 planes, but felt dated and very cramped. Food was disgusting and limited options."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Nathing"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!"
Pros: "Most of the stuff was regular flights"
Cons: "Even after explicitly asking them for Hindu vegetarian food they gave me chicken with the wrong label. I realized it after eating a bite. They should not have done this mistake."
Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."
Pros: "Crew were excellent, taking the time to introduce themselves and always responding promptly to requests"
Cons: "Service at times seemed a little disorganised. A minor issue though when compared to the overall service"
Pros: "The Denpasar Airport had been closed for days due to Ash/Volcano Agung, so luckily our Flight departed as planned, and on time. Was easily re-assigned a new seat (middle to aisle) at the gate. The staff was attentive and courteous."
Cons: "We had a roundtrip ticket from Denpasar to Bali. We were in Thailand when Bali's Mount Agung erupted and called Cathay Pacific requesting our fees be waived to change our return flight from Denpasar, Hong Kong, Newark to Bangkok-Hong Kong-Newark. Cathay Pacific said the fee to change our flight is $350, and plus the difference in the new ticket price. That option was very expensive. We were very stressed about returning to Bali due to the High Alert warnings. The Denpasar Airport was closed for days -- and our request was not unreasonable."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Slow food service, average food. Slow after meal pick up."
Pros: "The crew is bilingual and they work and move fast"
Cons: "Flight CX882 Seat 59K the food tray does not stay up, food keeps sliding to the right. Both departing and returning flights ran out of free gifts as stated for the purchase of Laneige skin care products. Food selection is less desirable compared to other Asian airlines. Inside the crew food storage/service area looks old and dirty. I can see the area from my seat."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare. BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the food was not good"
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Pros: "Good food served Crew behaviour was nice peace full journey very meet and clean ,captain of the flight was experence person smooth flying,"
Cons: "Toothbrush and paste was not issued to Evonomy class persons,Whisky served was not having good quality & quantity ,Only few Hindi movie Videio was available,may give more Hindi Videio,Tea served was not hot."
Pros: "Business class service was the best I've ever experienced from any carrier."
Pros: "The service was amazing & the attendants were so attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "No complaints, whatsoever."
Pros: "Excellent job with the aircraft"
Cons: "The food was simple and not enough for Cathay Pacific standard"
Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."
Cons: "Needs more leg room"
Pros: "Best meal service ever, my husband never eats airplane food but gobbled up the dinner and the breakfast served. Seats were comfortable, beverages were readily available, one of the best airlines in the world."
Cons: "Didn't have slippers, only socks. Slightly inconvenient having to put shoes back on to run to the restroom, which sometimes have wetness from God knows what."
Pros: "Shorter flight airplane much nicer"
Pros: "After being unexpectedly upgraded to premium economy at the gate, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the seats were even more comfortable than I would have expected for this section. The reclining pitch was excellent - even for the people sitting behind. There is a hassock-like panel to elevate one's legs about 45 degrees. Almonds instead of peanuts, a menu option with a main of a nice piece of steak (that could be cut with an airline knife!), amenity kit... Very happy passenger."

Very happy with my flight

Cons: "Excellent! Got us home on time and with great service! Thank you"
Cons: "Server was mean"
Pros: "The economy seat was surprisingly comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Movie selection was very limited"
Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."
Pros: "Great food, great service. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The video screen at my seat was malfunctioning."
Pros: "I'll probably never fly Basic Economy again....it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "See first comment."
Pros: "The flight was one hour late to leave Seattle and we had to run in Frankfurt airport for 20 minuts to catch the next flight and one luggage did not make it . No more"
Pros: "Thanks for continuing to offer complimentary, hot meals on your international flights! Crew very friendly. Despite being in economy cabin, crew attempted to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Long flight, bathrooms start to look ugly. Incoming plane landed way out on the tarmac, obligating passengers to be all packed into shuttle bus which took a long time to get to terminal."
Pros: "Lots of food with free wine"
Pros: "everything was good other than the entertainment package"
Cons: "not verymany movies to select"
Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight was on time, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, multiple drink services"
Cons: "Waited 40 mins after boarding with no explanation as to why we hadn't moved"
Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Food was poor, dried up and not enough for 10 hours flight. You did have the option to buy more."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine."
Cons: "I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!"
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from."
Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."
Cons: "I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways"
Pros: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Cons: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Pros: "Food/drink choices and portions were very generous on our long haul flight . Efficient boarding. Lots of entertainment options as well."
Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"
Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat between two fellow passengers who were large individuals. For a flight duration of over ten hours, it was terrible to repeatedly have to negotiate space with them as they were spilling into my chair space. I also had to insist they not extend their legs into my foot well."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%."
Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."
Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful."
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The pasta was soggy and the bread was hard and stale."
Pros: "Loved the business class upgrade"
Cons: "Lack of food choices even in business class"
Pros: "You fed us a lot, which was appreciated. The food was pretty good, especially for airline food. And you were generous with the alcohol:-)"
Cons: "My seat mate was very difficult. I'd appreciate more movie selection, like newer US films."
Cons: "Didn't take it"
Cons: "food only fair..."
Pros: "Everything was great. Good movies, helpful crew, good food for an airline."
Cons: "Entertainment - when compared with other airlines, very few movies available."

The food is a joke

It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.

Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Cons: "Advertised October Pink products but did not have them for breast cancer support"
Pros: "Entertainment programs"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Cons: "This was one of the worst flights I’ve been on. Both planes were downright filthy. The flight from Dallas to Barcelona had several broken toilets. Flight from Paris to Barcelona boarded and once everyone was on board, they told us that we would be sitting there for 2 hours before leaving."
Pros: "Great newer plane, great service!"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "Good crew, as usual with Air France."
Cons: "Old plane with very lousy seats for a super expensive business class. Super slow check in and overall process till boarding because of lack of ground staff compared to passenger volumes"
Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Cons: "Baggage check in was stressful"
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Pros: "Flight was in time"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Nice meal service and drink service throughout. Great choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Air France personnel is always really helpful"
Cons: "Food and comfort in short haul are not the best - but the flight is short..."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."
Cons: "Thanks"
Cons: "They lost my luggage :("
Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Leg space."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "Faster"
Cons: "Waited a while before take off."
Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Cons: "Long delay during connection at CDG Unclear information about delay Repeated changes to boarding time Unable to take stroller during connection Had to go through security again at CDG, although same terminal (2E)"
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "The flight was good overall. Friendly crew good attention."
Cons: "There was a delay due to technical dificulties in previous flight. This caused a delay in take off and no AC while waiting in the plane for 40 minutes."
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clear information about the delay"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process at CDG and my seat was broken"
Cons: "To many announcements on a overnight flight."
