Pros: "Crew was amazing, food was great."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen could have been larger."
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: "The crews were very kind and helpful."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The foods could be better not up to the standard of EVA air on economy class"
Pros: "I like the guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind."

Pros: "JAL flights to LAX are always great. Good food too."
Pros: "Seats, movies, comfort"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"
Pros: "Flight experience in JAL is excellent."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "food is ok"
Pros: "Super cheap. Came with an in flight meal. Kind staff. Great service."
Cons: "We had to wait until check in to sit together."
Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Politeness. It definitely stands out."
Cons: "Coffee. It just didn’t taste good to me. But they had wine!"
Pros: "Japan Airlines gets it right. The boarding was very calm and efficient. The attendants were working the whole flight to make the trip pleasant. Food was good."
Cons: "There could have been a few more diverse choices on the entertainment channels but generally OK. The one complaint I had was that it was hot on most of the flight."
Pros: "Seat width, Crew Service,"
Cons: "Web Site Check in is cumbersome"
Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the gluten free meal I requested ahead of time was the best airline gluten free meal I've ever had!! :)"
Pros: "The food on this flight was horrible. Big disappointment. Usually, the food on Japan Airlines is wonderful. However, on this flight, the food was a crab/mayo sandwich with yogurt. However, the service was wonderful, as always."
Pros: "The Japanese crews were excellent on board."
Cons: "I didn't like the way the personnel at the check in counter in Dallas. Hannah didn't seem too helpful. I don't know if she was new but she seemed reluctant to help me when I couldn't find my luggage tags. I told her I wanted a kid's meal for my son but she didn't process the request. He did not get a child meal."
Pros: "The level of service in Business Class was perfect. Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "I thought the food was just so so. However, that's always a matter of personal taste."
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: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined her seat entire fought crushing my knees and leaving NO legroom, couldn't even use foot rests!"
Pros: "Everything about the Japan air portion of our trip was excellent."
Cons: "No problems whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "Plane was spotlessly clean, smelled nice, bathrooms also very clean and had toothbrushes and toothpaste. I requested the vegetarian meal and it was the best airline food I have ever eaten Flight crew was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working for Japan Airlines. I don't see that very often on any domestic US air carriers. I highly recommend Japan Air."
Cons: "Headset was too big for me and kept skipping back."
Pros: "Great staff and washlet toilets on board."
Cons: "I ended boarding last not one of the first as other airlines."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great vacation"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too! Super nice check in agent as well."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were wonderful-kind, considerate and hardworking. Great meals and constant attention offering drinks. The movie choices were terrific. I stayed up all night watching top flight movies that I had not seen. I would love to travel with them again!"
Cons: "Nothing- except maybe the long trip. But if I have to take this long trip, I'd take it with them!"
Pros: "Once I made it through the long line at check in everything went very well. Check in was a bit of a nightmare since Air Busan is shared with Asiana Airlines."
Cons: "I had to stand in line at both Asiana and Air Busan to check in. Made checking in a lot longer than normal."
Pros: "Since I had back pain,I really like that I could checked in two luggages. Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"
Pros: "I've been always flying with U.S. airlines this past several years just because transits are easier. I forgot about how friendly and nicer JAL crews are. Their food is much much better. They served us with a cup of Haagen-Dazs icecream for dessert while a Fatboy is normally served by other airlines. I was impressed by how spacious the foot area of their economy seat is. Because I felt quite comfortable, I slept five hours straight during the flight which is phenomenal to me. I will definitely fly with JAL again!"
Pros: "Great service. Great seat."
Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."
Pros: "I always find the service on Japan Airline to be excellent. What I really liked, and didn't expect, was that there was individual inflight entertainment systems. Most other carriers on short flights out of Busan don't have that available, so it was a nice option. The meals were excellent!"
Pros: "JAL in general."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Customer service is great."
Pros: "checking in at chicago ohare ord was a nightmare.there were only 12 of us in line yet the wait exceeded 1 hour , we watched as the airlines next to us processed well over 150 passenger's while the japan airline moved slower than snail sex. it was painfully beyond slow."
Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"

Pros: "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing actually"

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Staff upgraded me both ways to an emergency exit row with more leg room."
Cons: "Breakfast was just so-so, not enough snacks or drink service throughout. The departure from the plane took over an hour (JFK’s fault, not Korean Air)."

Cons: "Ordered vegetarian oriental and they brought me appetizer of shrimp Flight attendant didn’t understand that shrimp is not vegetarian"
Cons: "Korean Air is amazing but Flyus.com is horrible."
Cons: "the crew on this flight didn't timely deal with two situations I had. it took twenty minutes to get a cup of tea and I had to ask twice. then I dropped my nighttime mouth retainer on the floor and it also took twenty minutes and two reminders to have them sterilize it. My previous flight from JFK to Seoul was very good not this one."

Cons: "Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later. I was injured and in a wheelchair and this was not only a major inconvenience it was also poorly handled for someone who needed additional help. It was every man for himself. I was very disappointed"
Pros: "very accommodating for handicap"
Pros: "I liked that the captain was very informative. We were on the plane for awhile and captain let passenger know why and when the plane was going to take off. The crew were very friendly and ready to assist."

Cons: "The seat is small"
Pros: "The plane was clean and the staff was great."
Pros: "The crew was so helpful and accommodating with my meal and all aspects of the flight! They were just so nice and I usually done get that with other airlines that I've flown.

Cons: "I bought my ticket last minute not realizing that my lay over in Korea was 12 hours I arrived in Korea at 5:30 am, stayed at the airport , slept , walked, ate, sleep patiently waited for my 1930 boarding I finally boarded and was told in their broken English that I am going to be inspected I was thoroughly searched, my pursed was inspected, my body was inspected ,the asked me to open both of my hands and they run a white strips into my palm( I'm a nurse ) and the first thing that entered my mind was they were checking me for drug screen I am very bothered with what happened , Korean airlines makes their passenger have a long lay over and at the end will be thoroughly searched because she stayed in the airport too long How is Korean airlines going to support this insult!!!

Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."

Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything was good overall"
Cons: "I would like more movie and tv options"
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."

Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 10 hours less with less than 24 hours notice. Had to call Asiana to change flight to a 1 stop flight (original flight was nonstop). Flight to Seoul from New York was also delayed by 8 hours and I ended up having to spend ~$70 for hotel/taxi due to arriving in Seoul past midnight.

Pros: "Food was excellent at least some of the time. And pretty good the other times. It was also nice to get slippers/"

Cons: "Very unorganized boarding process."
Pros: "The Korean dinners were fine. Good last minute exit window seat"
Cons: "There should have been more snacks during the flight for the passengers to nosh. Cathay Pacific would have trays of goodies for people to take and the attendants would bring cup noodles and water upon request. The mid flight pizza sliver was a joke. The movie choices were limited."

Pros: "Access to restrooms through out the plane should be encouraged to avoid traffic by users in one particular area"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Dirty plane. Floor and tables not cleaned."
Pros: "The service and experience was excellent"
Cons: "I only wish the seats were more comfortable for such a long flight. I understand that the length of the flight cannot be changed… It is just difficult to set the entire time. I wish the premium seats cost less so that I could afford to lay down"
Pros: "I liked the airbus used to fly from and to the USA. On a 15 hour flight comfort is key, and they did their best. The have build little foot pedals to rest your feet on. Meals also came often, and the food was on the better end of airplane food. Crew was also very friendly!"
Cons: "The crew only came around with water every 3 hours or so. This is unacceptable on a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and very helpful. They were attentive and constantly providing beverages. The films were nice and a large selection. The food was delicious and it was overall a lovely flight which was nice since it was over 13 hours in length."
Cons: "It would have been nice for slightly more space but it is definitely not the most cramped economy class I have sat in. Additionally, it would have been nice to have different movies from my flight to Seoul but there is so much too choose from that this is not a real issue either."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "My travel with asiana is excellent. The crew are so professional and helpful..except for boarding need to be more organized.."

Pros: "THE staff were really nice and kind."
Cons: "Not enough snack small amount of wine usually you get 1 small bottle. NOT enough movies choice. No control on the air over your head."
Pros: "Everything was great, to be honest. If this was 3, 4 years ago, I'd have given it 5 stars across the board without hesitation."
Cons: "No wifi on the flights means I'm limited to working offline and Asiana's IFE system, which was amazing but had limited selection."
Pros: "I like how they gave us an empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. It was better on the way in. Boarding took forever. It didnt seem like they came around with beverages."
Pros: "IN flight attendants are great, always willing to help and with a smile."
Cons: "I can see the airline growing ans some of the perks disappearing."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and the food for economy was good."
Cons: "13 hour from Seoul to NYC and the crew never once went into and took care of any of the four bathrooms in the lower cabin in economy class. On the flight two weeks before from JFK - they did a great job on the bathrooms.On both flights there was no need for the constant interruptions telling us to put the seat belts on. Just turn on the light no need to make an announcements in two languages."
Cons: "There were some disrespectful passengers who were disruptive during the flight."
Pros: "Better entertainment options."
Cons: "Loud children all over, my dietary choices for all three meals were messed up ever though I spoke to three different levels of Asiana employees to verify (due to the mistake on the flight to Korea). When I tried to explain to the flight attendant my dietary needs they couldn't be bothered and got an attitude when I asked for the meal that was being served. The flight crew was unfriendly. The bathrooms were crowded and chaotic after meals with no attempt on the flight crew to organize or redistribute the crowds (unsafe situation could occur). I waited 15 minutes at one point because there was simply no order. Some flight attendants were better than others but overall, they played favorites with certain groups."
Pros: "They had a show of different traditional Korean costumes. The girls then allowed the passengers to take pictures with them. A fun time."
Cons: "It was a long long flight. I wish they used those black holes for travel."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"
Cons: "Same as before. Dirty and smelly. Food was ok."
Pros: "Lie-flat seat in usiness class in the most comfortable seat I have ever sat in—on or off a plane. Cathay service is remarkably good and caring, but not intrusive."
Cons: "Dinner entrees not as good as last Flights with Cathay, but dim sum for breakfast was excellent."
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the sound system on my seat was broken so I couldn't watch movies except"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff."
Pros: "As per usual, Cathay’s service was top notch. Friendly, courteous crew, good food, a great entertainment system with a great selection. This particular flight was very smooth and, as it was only around 65% full, I was able to stretch out and get some sleep."

Cons: "Food could have been better. Pasty potatoes and soft vegetables. Ice cream though :)"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The crew manager shouted to me and my 1 year old boy during the flight as my son cried. They did not offer any help, my family got insulted and cried. The worst flying experience in my life, will never take that again."
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, and about a third of the entertainment touch screens did not work, including my sister's. Crew were helpful though throughout and gave us and others a $50 voucher for our trouble."
Cons: "For a 15 hour flight no way to make economy class comfortable at this price ( I flew Cathay since they were much cheaper than flying directly from japan"

Cons: "No Wifi on a 16 hour flight is simply stunning to me."

Pros: "friendliness of crew and ease of boarding"
Cons: "food was ok"
Pros: "Comfortable seat , surprisingly good food"
Cons: "Where to begin....The flight was delayed an hr leaving Hong Kong. Then we were rerouted without notice to Newark International. Upon landing and changing our plans, we were told we were actually proceeding to our original destination in JFK. However, we have to wait for a new crew and we're stuck on the tarmac, on the plane for additional couple hrs. The experience was very aggravating, especially after such a long flight. Additionally, I find Cathays lack of transperancy with their customers very unprofessional. Sad as this is my preferred airline to flight but will take this into account for future bookings."
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I personally don't like how you can't choose seats until check in. Although the food menu states that noodles and snacks were available upon request, we were turned down several times when we requested. Food served, especially main entree, were barely edible. It was probably the worst airline food I've ever had, and I travel very frequently. When we arrived back at JFK from our trip, it took over 2 hours for our luggage to arrive at baggage claim."
Pros: "When you see a big plane you always wonder how long it will take but Cathay Pacific was very efficient during the boarding and deplaning. It was a very long flight and they kept everybody happy with a smile. Extremely accommodating."
Pros: "I would like most of the employees of Cathay Pacific works in your company, they are very nice and also very kind to treat customers and kindly help us to solve problems during our traveling. I really appreciated. and I can say nothing but many thanks to all of Cathay Pacific employees. Ying Tao, SUN"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive directing us to other bathrooms as needed. Sitting at the bulkhead helped a lot"
Cons: "The baby meal is ideal for infants between 6 and 12 months of age"
Cons: "Need a little extra leg room"
Pros: "Food was incredible and the staff were so accommodating! Absolutely loved it!"
Pros: "Everything went us per schedule. The staff nice and polite."
Cons: "The seating is too cramped ."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No seat assignment until at the airport, so my wife and I had to sit at separate rows, far away from each other for 15 hours. I will never buy from kayak again"
Pros: "Crew is always very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Need to have more movie and tv show choices. The food could also be a bit better."
Pros: "Good communication about departure delay, check in was fast and efficient."
Cons: "I had to ask crew repeatedly for a simple snack, meals were very slow to arrive, entertainment system we'd glitchy, food was just ok."
Pros: "The quick response of flight attendants and the comfort of the economy seats."
Cons: "48 hr preboarding online checkin is nonexistent. Error messages via link."
Pros: "The food is great"
Pros: "Excellent service. Very clean, mostly."
Cons: "Tight seats. Not the worst, but still tight. Bathrooms could get messy and unstocked."
Pros: "Smooth, quiet and comfortable overnight flight from Vancouver to JFK"
Pros: "The staff both when checking in and on board were excellent. The seating space was better than other international flights we have taken in the past and since. The food was better than what we received in the other flight we took later the same day (with another airline). We highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "The entertainment options could be better - but this is just a minor flaw in their overall service."
Cons: "Food options!"
Pros: "Lovely crew, good amount of food and drink available."
Cons: "Sound on some of the entertainment options was too low to hear, so I ended up using my phone instead."
Pros: "the headphone was so great that i was away from the noise, and i do had a good sleep on the plane."
Cons: "it’s a pity that i missed the hot snack of premium economy."
Pros: "The staff were actually very nice and possibly the only good thing about this trip."
Cons: "The turbulence was the worst I had ever experienced in my life. Granted, I understand nothing can really be done about that but, the captains made little to no effort to inform us when we would be hitting turbulence. All he said was “Crew, take your seats.” People just had to assume we were about to hit turbulence. And gosh was it horrible turbulence. 13 and 1/2 hours and at least 7 incidences of really hard turbulence. I got no sleep at all, cause I was much to afraid to even close my eyes. I wish the capitains could have said something to calm us down. It was frightening."
Pros: "I liked that cleanliness and the blankets were really nice! I liked the selection of entertainment. The food was alright for getting meals on a airplane. The staff was very nice as well."
Cons: "The space was very small and if someone tall is sitting behind you, you cannot our seat back at all so for a 15 hour flight that’s pretty bad. Everything else was good!"
Pros: "The meals are very good and tasty, good portions."
Cons: "The economy seat is OK but too distance between seats could use extra inch."
Pros: "Perfect landing. On time!"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "The crew was excellent with services provided. This aircraft was roomier as compared to the first leg of our trip. The flight was excellent and generally very smooth."
Pros: "well organized boarding, very attentive crew, decent food and entertainment."
Cons: "nothing major to complain about."
Pros: "Transit was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "-"
Cons: "They ran out of food options and i was served meat i could not eat for every meal, thus i ate only rice for over 24 hours. We then sat on the tarmac for over 4 hours with only 1 update,. After an over 18 hour flight. the last that could have been done was to update the passengers so we had an idea of how long we would be sitting there. it is understandable that weather may cause delays, however, it is inexcusable that we were told it would be a 2 hour delay, and were not updated until approaching 3 hours, and additionally, after that, we were told we would be approaching the gate at 10 and were not updated for another hour. The crew should have kept us better informed with the updated delays. They didn't pass out a single snack the entire 4 hour delay, and gave us one cup of water each, terrible experience"
Pros: "Crew are very nice and accommodating and professionals."
Pros: "great service by flight attendant; clean bathroom; free tasty meals and snacks"
Pros: "Large cabin of the 777 ER, friendly staff, smooth flight, on time arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Polite service of the crew. Overall conditions of temperature etc. Food was good with choices as were beverages."
Cons: "My husband has quite long legs, and although I had plenty of room, he was a bit close (though not tight) in legroom."
Pros: "Took the CI11/CI12 direct from NYC to TPE. Great flight. Great crew and accommodations - pillows, blankets, seats. Food not bad."
Cons: "No free wifi. Paid is overpriced for 24 hours."
Cons: "Aircraft uses a 3 x 4 x 3 configuration on a 777, which makes things pretty tight. Typically this is 3 x 3 x 3 ."
Pros: "Attendants were good"
Cons: "Airplane food. But it doesn't matter what airline you fly on"
Pros: "Great service. Terrific crew. They went out of their way to make sure that I was comfortable for a 14 hour flight."
Cons: "When two people are travelling together and adjoining seats were needed, it was impossible to make the seat changes online. Only one seat was able to be moved. We finally had to wait to ask crew members at check-in. It was an anxious time."
Pros: "Service, crew and food were exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Crew are courteous and efficient and food was good"
Cons: "Check isn't organized at all"
Pros: "Good service and entertainment"
Pros: "Lots of food and good entertainment selections, friendly"

Cons: "The food was pretty bad with bread being stale/tough and some of the main courses too greesy to eat."
Pros: "Friendly staff; good entertainment options"
Cons: "Delayed by several hours; infrequent water distribution"
Pros: "Had a nice flight back from Taipei to JFK on China Airlines in premium economy. Compared to economy, I was quite happy with the comfortable far-reclining seats and more than enough leg room. My one complaint is food. I'm a vegetarian and the veg options were awful...simply not acceptable. And giving passengers the full can of soda/beverage would be nice. Most adults drink more than a shot glass worth of soda or juice. Or at least fill the cup a bit more."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats are VERY narrow in economy and very little leg room. They turn on all cabin lights when serving meals at very odd hours during the flight. No individual fan vents and this flight was very warm."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and polite. Food is decent for an airline."
Cons: "Seat size is VERY small."
Pros: "I've been taking CI to Taiwan since I was a little kid. My flight to Seoul via Taipei was a bit uncomfortable bc the flight was fully packed and even though I had an aisle seat, the person sitting in the middle was hogging up all my space . Once I landed in Taipei and went on next flight to my destination at Seoul, that flight was much more comfortable and less people. On my return direct flight from Taipei to JFK seats were comfy and service is always attentive. I enjoy taking china airlines and can always rely on their service and clean planes"
Cons: "The new interior decoration seems outdated and gives a weird vibe."
Pros: "Great Taiwanese airline. It's not a Chinese airline despite the confusing name, so there is no safety concern and the passengers are nice and civilized people. Great service similar to other airline from Taiwan (EVA Air)."
Pros: "Considerate boarding. Needed extra time. Crew was great. Aircraft cleanliness Not overbooked. Person in front of me put seat all the way back and kept rocking. NO room. Knees were constantly being bumped. Very inconsiderate. He had 2 seats next to him to move"
Cons: "Food was inedible. For a 14+ hr flight that is a big deal. Coffee was served during severe turbulence. Spilled everywhere. Did NOT GET BURNED fortunately. Since there was 12 hrs to go the service could have been delayed."
Pros: "Courteous and professional staff. Excellent food service."
Cons: "Seats were not that good. Needs upgrading."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "economy seating no leg room"
Pros: "The premium economy seats had half recline and leg support. the cabin crew were very courteous. They gave an overnight kit similar to business class. Same food as business except servived with plastic utensils and small plastic tray."
Cons: "The boarding area in Taipei was small, crowded and chaotic."
Pros: "I liked the large selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The headphone jack on the chair wasn't working as well as it could have so it was hard to hear the movies I was trying to watch. I didn't like how the meals and lights being dimmed seemed to correspond to (and keep us on) the time zone of the place we were leaving instead of adjusting us to the time zone of the place we were going."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff responds well to your needs."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "There were screens on the headrest in front of us and they had new tv shows, music and movies all for free. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats weren't comfortable but the flight was less than an hour. The food wasn't very tasty but i think it's because it wasn't "American" food so it was just a different."
Pros: "Comfort seats, new airplane, very friendly service."
Cons: "The food was rather ordinary and the amount of wine I got on this JFK to TPE flight was no more than 2 oz."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and their response was "we don't generally track Our baggages. Our system doesn't do that.""
Pros: "Flight landing delayed 30min, cutting into transfer time. China Airlines was amazing in making sure I didn't miss it. They moved me up towards the front of the plane and had personnel at jetway to escort me through baggage claim and customs. Thank you for the great customer service!"
