I go out of my way to seek their flights!"

Pros: "Nothing our tickets had to be cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled with Korean air. We attempted to check in multiple times with issues on the Korean air website. we called and they told us not to worry. Finally, approximately 12 hours before departure we wwere able to check in Only to find out due to the expiration date of our passport we would not be an allowed to check in. We scrambled to get an emergency passport, however by the time it was received we had already missed our flight. Korean air is not willing to aknowledge this as a fault in their system and is instead suggesting this is a kayak issue for allowing us to purchase these flights. I would like the total flight cost refunded as this should never have been allowed to be purchased if Korean air knew at the time of purchase when checking in there would be an issue."

It was a long flight, but the flight attendants made it worthwhile. They were very attentive to your needs with exceptional service. The food selection was good. Overall the best flight I've ever had flying overseas."

There were no answers to phone calls from information provided on receipt. Emails only stated the fees that would be imposed for any action I conducted. I will never use kayak again."

Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs.

Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew and staff were generally friendly and the food was fine."
Cons: "For the first time in thirteen years traveling with my guitar, I was forced to check in my guitar, potentially in violation of the US Department of Transportation's rule on musical instruments. While my guitar thankfully arrived in good condition, this caused an unnecessary amount of stress in my 24 total hours of travel. I'd highly advise Cathay Pacific to revise their inflexible stance towards musical instruments, as many passengers brought carry-on bags which were much larger than my guitar in its case."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food sitting position checking in"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable Not great selection of western movies"
Pros: "The ground steward in LAX attended to our needs. He was cheerful and made us feel welcome."

Pros: "The diabetic meals"
Cons: "Headphones and more snacks."

Pros: "Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result."
Cons: "Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. But you should really add more child movies and more fun games."

Cons: "Seat cushions were VERY hard."

Good experience on a long flight."
Pros: "The food, service, and seats were all great in economy. I typically fly UA and China Airline's entertainment system and seat comfort are definitely on par on this 777 when compared to UA's 787."

Pros: "The economy class seats are actually some of the best to sleep in!"
Pros: "Chair comfort (but no location) , food and partially the crew."
Cons: "Terrible procedure of getting the BORDING pass. I had to walk very long distance from arrival to gate 155 to find a CIA desk to get my boarding pass. The worst seat on the plane was assigned to me and CiA procedure didn't give me any chance for a normal seat. I had the bad chance to be served by a HIPER team of two flight attendants that rised my blood pressure. Their egarness to be productive and their rush were NOT justified, especially on such a long flight; low professionalizm."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was okay. Changing planes in Taipei was enlivened by their funky themed lounges."
Cons: "The first meal was horrible. Things improved somewhat after that but it made a lasting impression."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful! Very friendly, attentive and courteous! Food was good."
Pros: "The interior was clean and spacious. Overall pretty comfortable flight. About average in-flight entertainment system."
Cons: "They gave me a tray without the main entree on it for breakfast and said they'd come back. Gave everyone in front of and behind me their food as far as I could tell. Then they never came back.

Cons: "Food was awful. Would bring my own food on future flights"
Pros: "Nice crew, decent food"
Cons: "Very narrow seats, sitting between two mothers with crying infants"
Pros: "Ground crew facilitated the flow of the very long line, making sure it's moving along. The flight crew were helpful in finding a spot for your carry on and were always there when I needed assistance. Food was good but the Taipei-Manila flight, there was only one choice of meal."
Pros: "The comfortability of the ride was great. Seats were comfortable, easy to sleep in."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The headphones weren't comfortable at all and the movies weren't easy to hear at all."

Cons: "They make me pay an extra fee of $150 for coming 1 hours before departure time."
Pros: "Service and flight was mediocre and flight time was longer than I thought."
Cons: "Economy chair doesn't recline at all. It was a minial space compare other airline's international flight."
Pros: "My seat was upgraded the first class so I received the first class service. It was excellent service and the flight was comfortable. Thank you for the great service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airplanes are fairly new. Everything seemed fairly clean. Movie choices were good. The staff was really accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Narrow seats in Economy. With every move, I had to be careful not to disturb the person next to me. I am a fairly skinny guy. This was quite challenging when I tried to eat. It was too easy to trigger the flight-attendant call button by accident with the touch screen. The icon is not really obvious and it is close to the screen on and off icon."
Pros: "Flight was great only issue was that I couldn't take my bag on the flight. It was said to weigh to much but others had heavy bags and had them on the flight."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Pros: "comfort of premium economy seating in 777 ER300"
Cons: "Food service not that good."
Pros: "I had to make an emergency trip back home ASAP, and China Airlines had the best schedule. It was my first time flying with them, and I was not sure what to expect. Some quick research about safety and traveler experiences - indicated it would be a reasonably safe and comfortable flight. It was - good seats, smooth takeoff and landing, diligent attendants, and meal service was decent (for example - on par with KLM, better presentation than Air India, not as good as Qatar or ANA). I would consider flying with them again."
Cons: "Lunch meal was a rice/chicken/vegetable/thick sauce micture. Decent, but I was a bit put-off by the soupy rice. Perhaps because I had the congee for the breakfast meal, and had had enough of rice porridge texture."
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: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "One of the beat flying experiences ever. China Airlines does cust at a high level"
Cons: "Nothing to report bad"
Pros: "Food was good. The screen of the first flight LAX-TPE) was big and new."
Cons: "If the crew needs more rest please give them enough turnaround and breaks. They all look tired and unhappy. That's something the company has to fix, not the consumer to bear. The guy next to me didn't put his bag in the overhead cabinet, so it kept poking me or lie on my feet the entire flight. I'm sure this is something the airline would be able to enforce for security reasons."
Pros: "Price was good. The plane was quiet and clean."
Cons: "Food was not very good compared to competitors. I fly a lot and I'm positive these were the smallest seats I've ever had. Understand it's economy, but for a 12 hr. flight it's difficult. Also, check-in line took almost 2 hrs, giving most of us 30 min to go through security and find the boarding gate."
Pros: "Staff was good & food was always on time."
Cons: "I didn't like how the flight felt too congested. Especially on a 13hr flight. There was no self checking in or online check-in available so I had to wait in a long line to check-in. The most negative part about this flight is the 10hr delay in Taiwan. Sleeping in the airport for 10hrs isn't easy and fun especially after a 13hr flight. Overall, not a good experience as I hoped it would be."
Pros: "Entertainment system and the interior of the plane cabin."
Cons: "Crammed seats and how one female flight attendant yelled at a passenger out of impatience."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No customer service people to talk to about seating. No one ever answer the telephone"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."
Cons: "Im vegetarian and there is not options tu select special meals for vegetarians, instead Avianca from Salvador to LAX there have."
Cons: "Something must be done about how far a person can recline their seats. I'm a '6 with long legs, the flight to Taipei was 13 hours. The guy in front of me reclined his seat all the way down. Flight crew was helpless."
Cons: "For a long flight the seat is uncomfortable, it needs to be more comfy and size could be better."
Pros: "Like the staff on board. Very nice."
Cons: "Too hot! No individual air vents!! Need that on those planes. Also could have had better leg room Could have been nice to upgrade to economy plus even at the last minute Line at boarding was horrible. Very long and 2hr wait. Almost missed plane trying to get to security even after showing up 2 hrs before flight"
Pros: "It was an intern final destination and the boarding crew answered all my questions and put me at ease."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "The flight was more than 4 hours late making us miss our connections"
Pros: "Amazing crew very good service ."
Cons: "Chose my seat, instead of leaving it to the airline ."
Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"
Cons: "Missed flight due to unnecessary delays"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "flight was diverted an hour away for refueling because of weather over SLC. But SLC opened before we even landed at Grand Junction, CO. I had 8 mins to run between concourses to catch the next flight. My bags didn’t make the flight and have perishable food items. But it is what it is."
Pros: "Crew, exit row seat"
Cons: "Bathroom"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the food was great, the ride was wonderful."
Pros: "Love Delta. They will always be my #1 choice."
Cons: "Seats aren’t super comfy, but that’s true of economy on any plane."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "Nothing more to say!"
Pros: "Delta was OK"
Cons: "Lack of attention by the fly stuard in Virgin Australia Virgin had a 45´delay"
Pros: "Departing"
Cons: "More than 4.5 hrs in taxi waiting to take off. Due to “few rain” and after 3.5 hrs we needed to refuel when we were about FINALLY close to our turn for take off. Horrible service by DELTA. Never flying again with them"
Pros: "seating, food, service"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "No will fi"
Cons: "Very late .missed connection. Agents in Detroit were worthless to get us on different connection"
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"
Cons: "Flight was late to arrive and late to depart. Not many passengers but no service."
Pros: "Great crew on board!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Great service, free movies, nice crew."
Cons: "sitting next to a large dog and the wifi not working given i prepaid for it and actually selected the flight because it had wifi i fell hours behind on my work"

Cons: "Disappointed airplane not equipped with free movies. I bought ear buds on return flight for that purpose"
Cons: "I forgot my wired ear phone so I purchased the earphone. I knew i shouldn't expected anything for $2 but really I couldn't hear anything at all to watch the movie. It's used to be free, now even paid the quality of the stuff is really suck."
Pros: "On time. Good customer service. Easy route, no hassles."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "More entertainment options were added. Thank you"
Cons: "It didn't fly fast enough. Jk. Not much to say"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "They kept me fed and hydrated the whole time, they let you watch brand new movies free, the seats are super comfortable. They allow a personal item and carry on at no extra charge."
Pros: "What is the issue?"
Cons: "They delayed the takeoff because of catering, really over a half hour because you wanted to sell more sandwiches. So you make us late and the poor people who had connecting flight, it just does not make sense."
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."

Pros: "Very easy flight & process"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
