Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Pros: "The crew and food was amazing, with ample entertainment selections."
Cons: "Seats. For some unknown reason, JAL uses different seats on this 787-8 flight from NRT-SAN that's 2-3 inches less in pitch than all of their other planes. This was not comfortable on a 9-hour+ flight. The flight attendants also woke us up everytime food was served so we could recline up seats."
Pros: "The crew was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie choices were limited."
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding!"
Cons: "I would have liked the ebooks section of the entertainment options expanded. I love to read and that would have greatly distracted from the discomfort of having to sit so long in such cramped quarters."

Pros: "Happy crew."
Cons: "more selection of hollywood movies"

Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"
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."
Pros: "Sitting in my seat I felt that I had wiggle room for my feet and my arms/elbows. Usually on American flights, I feel like a sardine packed in a can. Even though I was in economy I had plenty of space and was very comfortable during 9 hour flight from BKK to Tokyo."
Pros: "Great service Timely departure and arrival. JAL is really punctual"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff with excellent amenities ie: check in, seat space, food quality, movies to watch, music, ...etc."

Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."
Pros: "First time fly with JAL, friendly flight attendants, excellent seat space, would fly with JAL again."
Pros: "Flight attendants and ticket agents were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Direct flights from San Diego to Narita. Easy connections for other countries. Good food. Luggage allowance."

Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."

Pros: "Excellent service and attention to detail. Flight Attendents were courteous, friendly and eager to please."
Pros: "Bags were not checked through to Cebu because of the 10+ hr layover. Had to go out to arrival area to follow up on bag transfer. Korean Air wouldnt issue my boarding pass for my INC to CEB flight at LAX so I have to get in line again at the Korean Air check- in counter in INC then was told to go to Jin Air since it was operated by them. Jin Air wouldn't issue a boarding pass because my flight was at 8 AM the following day. I ended up sleeping at the predept area until the counter opened."
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 airline"

Pros: "I was not expecting that it exceeded my expectations, it was better than my favorite airline. First time I ever eat all the food they served in an airline. The crew were excellent, they're always there- I don't know if they ever rested throughout the duration of the flight! Not to mention, they are all friendly."
Cons: "Nothing! I wish I won't see things not to like in my future flights with them."
Pros: "Crew helpful"
Cons: "Food tasteless"
Pros: "Food was ok, pretty clean, nothing special like I remembered"
Pros: "They were helpful in getting us on and off the plane. My daughter spilled a drink and they quickly gave me napkins and wet towels to clean up. Also, the plane had great leg room!"
Pros: "Korean Airlines service is awesome. The flight attendants are attentive, sharp and customer service oriented."
Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"
Pros: "I have flown many times with many airlines, and I must say that Korean Air is by far THE BEST. From staff to food to entertainment. They crew will go out of there way to do what they can to ensure you have a comfortable and good experience. I will DEFINITELY fly with them again. Kayak was very user friendly also."
Cons: "The flight was very lomg, but nothing could be done to remedy that."
Cons: "Good customer service"
Pros: "cleanliness is very important to me, the constant tidiness esp. near the business class seat is wonderful i would fly Korean Air again because the planes are new. For future reference, how i wish they have domestic flights as well. Good luck to your continued good service."
Pros: "The flight got us there and back as planned."
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: "Very courteous staff, great food, entertainment, bathrooms are spotless with lotions and face mist, toothbrush and toothpaste, slippers, very spacious economy seats with plenty of room to recline and stretch legs."
Pros: "Fast I like it this way.."

Pros: "The food, the service,the entertainment were the best. Every time the bathrooms were used they were cleaned, you never see that on US based flights, ever!!!"
Pros: "Just as our first flight with Korean Air, everything was superb. We boarded just in time, due to delays in the airport since we floundered a bit, trying to make our way through the right terminals and security, but we were processed quickly, and the staff were so polite and welcoming."

Pros: "plane was comfortable and ground as well as freight crew's are kind. overall very good service."
Pros: "Delta crew was awesome"
Cons: "Running to flight"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and the food was very good, The flight was on time."
Cons: "All the advertisement books in the pouch were a pain. I could have put my reading materials in that space. The advertisements could be offered to passengers during the flight. Wouldn't probably need as many. Also, the cup holder should be up higher on the back of the seat. I kept bumping it with my knee and spilling it."
Cons: "Special meal options really bad. All vegetarian meal preferences including lacto-ovo-vegetarian are treated same as vegan, which is dumb."
Cons: "Nothing GOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cleanliness. More leg room"

Cons: "Departure and arrival at almost mid night which difficult for reach home at night, kids can't wait at airport."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "The food was very delecious and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Staying seeting with no chance to raise my leg was not comfortable."
Pros: "Crew made the flight a pleasant time dispute the 13 hours in the air. Good service, Good food and reasonably comfortable accommodations."

Pros: "Food is good, inflight entertainment is good, and even though the flight is long, Emirates does a good job inflight."
Cons: "29 passengers were arriving in JFK from MSP, a flight that was delayed due to ground staff issues at JFK (which means that Emirates' partner airline had some issues?). Plane was delayed but we landed just in time to make the connection or so we thought. After running through the terminal, we saw our plane attached to the gate for 53 minutes(I have pictures to show) but Emirates gate staff said the flight is now closed, and didn't let us board the flight. They didn't help us rebook our next flight, or pay for hotel or transportation. And some of us couldn't fly for 2 days because they were overbooked on their future flights. And that's what really happened - Emirates was overbooked for our flight, and conveniently used the excuse that they didn't know our flight had landed in JFK (seriously), and their ground staff was totally non challent about it. They asked us to call the partner airline to rebook, who instead asked us to call Emirates. 4-6 hours of calling for most of us in the middle of the night. Emirates has social media presence on Twitter & Facebook but it's like chatting with a wall. Its 100% useless and waste of time, and I have asked them where I can send my complaint but they won't respond."
Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."
Pros: "Great staff and awesome entertainment selection"
Cons: "There is nothing to not like"
Cons: "Fantastic customer service and attentive staff"
Pros: "- Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages."
Cons: "- Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."
Pros: "The seats were quite spacious and comfortable. The crew was very friendly and helpful. They actually seemed genuinely happy to be of assistance (a rarity, especially on 9 hour flights!)."
Cons: "Boarding was a fair disaster. No structure or communication about lines. Unclear who was boarding and when. Like a slow-moving stampede. The food was actually very yummy. I just prefer fresh food to be included. Like fruit. Didn't use any entertainment."
Pros: "Excellent customer care and attention"
Cons: "Very cold. Limited new/quality music to choose from..."
Pros: "My first time on Emirates and it was great. Lots of room and amenities even in economy. Food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "I was travelling to Addis Ababa on Dec29 But I wanted to celebrate New years eve in Dubai and stayed for 6days',But that wasn't Good idea.They charge me More than $300 for my luggage to go Addis Ababa,I know I have extra luggage but my thought was starting seattle until Addis."
Cons: "I will never ever use emirates"
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Pros: "It was good services"
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent."
Cons: "I flew from Singapore to New York with a 1 hour 15 minute layover in Dubai. Passengers with layovers were instructed to be at the next gate 45 minutes in advance of boarding. This was seemingly impossible and cause myself and many other passengers severe anxiety running through the airport. The first flight landed 10 minutes late in Gate C, took another 10-15 minutes to off board, at which point we were held by a flight attendant who later guided us to get on a bus to take us between terminal A and C. The entire trip between gates was approximately 30 minutes and we inexplicably had to pass through security 3 times during the layover. It seemed poorly organized and myself and other passengers just made the second flight before the doors closed."
Pros: "I was expecting something similar to last year. Unfortunately, my screen did not work and when I switched seats the seat would not recline properly. On the flight back from DXB-MCO they ran out of lamb only had chicken."
Cons: "Please see above"
Pros: "I like Big TV"
Cons: "After shown the back door of the plane, 7 others were stuck in a lift for an hour, it was too hot. help didn't come soon enough. Ignored by airport staff and cabin crew"
Pros: "Spacious seating."
Cons: "I wanted to sit upstairs"
Cons: "this experience with emirates was super duper bad. I was travelling to India as my dad had passed away that morning on 9/11. Bad service, no attention paid to the flight attendant button, water provided after 45 min....after 2 fligh attendants came by and said they would bring water. i provided verbal feedback and they were extra nice to me then...brought me crackers , chiocolates...etc etc...but it was just to calm me down. I went and got my own food from the kitchen area as I had a splitting headache, I was traveling to india as my dad had passed away on sep 11th morning. They gave me the same dinner mushroom and peas for vegetarian snack. Then they exchanged it after I had waited for so long. IT was just ridiculous servide and"
Cons: "This whole flight experience was a nightmare. I understand that there were very serious unforseen circumstances that day, with the Emirates flight from Trivandrum crash landing at the airport. As such the 4 hour delay that was announced was not a problem. The problem came after the airport resumed operations. We were told repeatedly that we would board any moment from 5:30pm onwards. As such, we did not go very far from the gate. We were even invited to go into the gate area no less than 3 times, before we were forced to leave. No one provided information. All we knew was that we were waiting for the crew to arrive. It took another SIX hours (in addition to the 4 hour delay) before we actually boarded. If we had even slightly better information, we could have at least found a comfortable chair a ways away from the gate and gotten a few hours of sleep. But it felt as if the ground staff constantly toyed with us, making us stay within a close radius of the gate but not providing any accurate or reliable information. I have come to expect the best from Emirates. But their actions were pitiful on this day."
Pros: "Flight attendants were patient and kind despite tension between passengers due to lack of overhead space."
Cons: "Very rough flight and every set of earphones were defective."
Cons: "When we landed we had to take the bus"
Pros: "It was terrible"
Cons: "Because l have to wait for 22 hours and they let me pay for my own visa and hotel when l arrived in dubai"
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable seats. Great on board service"
Pros: "Movie starts as soon as seated"
Cons: "No Emirate staff presented to due with the 20+ hours delay. Just sent their representatives who are not powerful to make decisions and at the end we have many questions not answered. Eg. Any earlier reconnect flights? Any alternative airlines? What is the checkout time of the compensation hotel? Any meal compensation if not staying at their hotel? Etc."
Pros: "Excellent 10"
Cons: "Good 8"
Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Cons: "they keep using a very old 767: no personal entertainment screen, no USB outlet and absolutely freezing temperature. Most of the people put on their heavy coats."
Cons: "The gate in Dallas changed three times, which caused me to walk all over the airport. Then the flight was delayed 3 hours with little communication"

Cons: "The boarding process was the WORST!"
Cons: "Offered entertainment"
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I pre ordered a vegan meal. American Airlines feed me salad and fruit. Not exactly inspiring or sustaining."
Pros: "The crew was slow. Granted, the plane was full and the crew had many passengers but service was slow and cursory."
Cons: "Flying economy on American Airlines is very unpleasant. The seats are too small-the aisles too narrow and the bathrooms incredibly tiny. Only 2 bathrooms in economy for a tremendous amount of passengers. I had requested a bulkhead seat because of hip surgery. I had to purchase it."
Cons: "All. Crew did not arrive on time. Boarding was a mess. Many arguments with customers."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "I liked crew"
Cons: "It wasn't comfortable"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"

Cons: "Seats are far too cramped for someone who is 6,2."
Cons: "Additional cost for luggage"
Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "One was great and one was not helpful and was condescending"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. Love American!!"
Cons: "Everything was outstanding!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly."
Cons: "So many rows of seats crammed in and no where for people to put their bags. People from front of Llane had to go to rear to place and retrieve their luggage. Maybe space the rows a little better or retire these older planes."
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Cons: "How much tighter can they cram us? I'm 5'11" and 185 pounds and was too wide for the seats!"
Pros: "TV monitor back of headrest with movies."
Cons: "Had to wait about 25 mins after landing to deplane."
Pros: "787 is one of the new planes; beautiful, clean, comfortable. Layout of business class looks efficient yet comfortable. Unlike the complicated layout in BAs business class. Stewards were polite, efficient and low key. Perfect! The pain was not very full so we were able to book the larger seats in the front of economy. I had thought this was the premium economy section but t was not marked as such."
Cons: "I flew economy where food is rarely any good at all. The options was bread & butter pudding or a cheese omelet. However, I noticed a number of passengers (me included) sent it back. I had the cheese and crackers. The least offensive option."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and too small of a seat"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Cons: "All of abo e, many delays, no usb plug or refuse to show me, charge for luggage, no headphone."
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "De-boarding was slow"
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Cons: "The electronic screen that shows movies etc. needs to be updated. Some of the functions did not work and those that did work were very difficult to get to work well. Disappointing. Obsolete technology."
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "I loved both of my flight to and back from London. The crews were very helpful and treated me great. The food was very tasty and really hit the spot for both dinner and breakfast. The plane was clean and full of all the technology I could've asked for to keep me occupied during the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't enjoy about my experience. Thank you for getting me there and back safely!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "Entertainment system is good."
Cons: "Flight was over crowded with baggage. Some people were allowed to board with 3 cabin bags and others weren't allowed to bring any on board."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."
Cons: "Not able to check backpack."
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
