Pros: "The Jetstar flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."

Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Cancelled flight"

Pros: "I'm glad they didn't fly an airplane that didn't pass the mechanic's evaluation."

Pros: "Was surprised at the selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Hard to be comfortable in economy, but it sufficed"

Pros: "Delays, delays, delays. An initial delay of 1.5 hours due to a switched plane. Then they needed mechanics to check out a bird hit to the plane. That took another 3 hours to happen. And they boarded us first, then found the issue, deplaned us, had a gate switch and then the wait. Very frustrating! Once on board, everything went smoothly as it typically does."
Cons: "The long delay"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Not much room to move around for such a big trip"

Cons: "Foo"

Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."

Pros: "The food and seat back entertainment were great, as well as the staff"
Cons: "Legroom was borderline inhumane, as a 5'10"adult I don't think it's too crazy to ask for a little more space on a 12+ hour flight. Good luck sleeping"

Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."

Pros: "The service was above and beyond expectations. Seats in economy are roomier than I'm used to. There was also many movies to choose from for in air entertainment. Food was delicious. Will fly Japan Airlines again in the future."

Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "Great food, professional conduct"
Cons: "Couldn't control window tint after we left California"

Cons: "one staff member was extremely rude when asked for another beverage."

Pros: "We were seated in economy but we had a pretty good flight. The only rough part was the fact that it was 10 hours of sitting, and that was due to the destination not AA's service. As someone who is used to United and Delta for flying, I felt that the service offered kinda rocked."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."

Pros: "Entertainment was great. I really liked the touch screens on the chairbacks. Food was fine for airplane food. It came more than I expected. Get sandwiches over the meals, they are better quality. A vegetarian guy had a hard time but the crew tried to help him out. Comfort was ok for a 13 hour trip. The chairs are not really the best and my back hurt after a while. Make sure you stretch! Crew was nice except for one lady. But she wasent rude just... non responsive. Other members were fantastic though. Boarding was very painless."

Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and we were stuck with very warm conditions for 2 hours and 40 minutes before we took flight."

Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."

Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."

Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."

Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."

Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."

Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"

Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Complainers. Shame on the parents who raised such pretentious a--holes."

Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"

Pros: "There was quite a large selection of movies. New releases to old classics. All free."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by a few hours due to mechanical issues but they did give us free food and drinks once we were on the plane."

Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."

Pros: "Selection of movies was excellent. I requested vegetarian meals, which were good, although not filling. Thankfully the flight was not crowded and we were able to get a row to ourselves. Flight attendants were very nice. Appreciated the frequent beverage offerings to stay hydrated. Overall a good experience."
Cons: "Paid the extra for an aisle seat, which was irritating to have to do, but my husband has arthritic knees and needs to get up frequently to walk around to avoid pain,"

Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."

Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"

Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."

Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."

Cons: "We ordered fruits meal but the crew didn't get the request. I have a confirmation email of the meal"
