All the Japan airlines staff from the checkin agents to the air hostess were all very courteous and helpful.

JAL staff is always super professional, polite, and helpful. The ground staff in Japan were exceptionally helpful by solving our connection problems perfectly.

Kayak messed up the scheduling of our canceled flight and set us back from departing for one whole day

Overall experience from checking in to boarding off - everything was painless and comfortable. Nice treatment. Special meals was good. Nothing to complain about. The seats were quite comfortable and had ample leg room. Will fly again with them,

Same as above

Good service

Options for food. There were no vegetarian options.

We appreciate your excellent customer service. My 88-year old Mom enjoyed your rest room with companion care, suitable to our needs. Your relentless patience, sincerity and humility struck chords remarkably in our hearts. You treated everyone fairly. Thanks for keeping us all safe and secure. :)

But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"
Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."

They spoke great English and ensured me and my husband sat together during our 15 hr flight to Vietnam.! They had so many options on new movies and music that helped pass the time. The food was very tasty as well as there snacks and drinks! The entire staff were helpful and appeared to enjoy their jobs. I will always fly with ANA when returning to ASIA."
Cons: "The seats seem small and are ok in comfort."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"

Cons: "No instructions on how to use the remote for the television."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "This is not related to the flight itself, but EVA could do a better job of communicating useful information on its website. Because of covid 19, Taiwan recently banned foreigners from entering Taiwan. I was concerned that this might affect my travel plans since I needed to change planes in Taipei. A clarification of this policy on EVA's website would have been VERY helpful, especially since their phone lines were completely overwhelmed."

Cons: "Keep doing same things"

Cons: "Good airline"
Pros: "The crew was very nice & efficient"
Pros: "The crew were great the food was nice."
Cons: "seats 26A and 27A are terrible seats. The seat divider is 4-5 inches wide and protrudes in to the footwell. When the passenger in the forward seat places his seat all of the way back. It is almost impossible for the person in these seats to get out to the aisle."
Cons: "The delay with boarding time caused me to almost miss my connecting flight in Taipei, where my checked bag was also delayed and did not check through concurrently with me."
Pros: "Friendliest staff constantly. Dwarfs other airlines in service performance. Great entertainment and comfort. Quality food. And don’t be afraid to ask for more of anything."
Cons: "Our gate required taking a shuttle to the plane and that is not ideal"
Pros: "I have flown Eva Airlines twice now for a few trips to Asia. The service and experience was great. I would highly recommend."
Pros: "Good service and flight attendants. I paid extra for exit row seats and I'm glad I did on a flight this long (13+ hours). I think that probably made a huge difference (six feet tall). Boarding was extremely orderly."
Pros: "Crew was the best part. They were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Very limited English movie selections for such a long flight. Could not turn Chinese subtitles off for some. Very distracting. Seats in economy (according to online comparisons) are some of the best in the industry but I felt extremely cramped and uncomfortable for the entire flight. Long haul flights should not have seats this small. Also, for health reasons, all seats should have foot rests. It shouldn't be about money, people can die from sitting like that for so long. Also, the food that I could eat was good, but there should be a no fish option. You have a lot of diet types available to choose from but none guarantee no fish. The process for requesting a special meal online was not clear and confusing."
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "good service as expected."
Pros: "We sat in the emergency row and had endless legroom. The blankets and pillows were good quality. Food was great! Crew was very attentive. Bathrooms were amazingly clean."
Cons: "We didn’t know how to access the entertainment."
Pros: "Food was fresh and tasty. Games and movies made the time go faster. Extra leg room made sitting easier"
Cons: "If meal times were posted, it would be easier to plan. Sleeping and snacking"
Pros: "I like the food and entertainment. But they should served drinks more often as possible rather than waiting for the customer to ask for it."
Pros: "2 free meals, attendants were very nice and ready to serve, free wine and multiple coffee and tea and drink calls. Also the flight was cheaper than most, which credits all the previous feedback provided."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Trip was pretty nice."
Pros: "service is good"
Pros: "Flying economy across the Pacific on Eva isn't exceptional, but given the ticket price, it is."
Cons: "The food is acceptable but not exceptional. I appreciated the free wine."

Pros: "Great flight Staff friendly"
Cons: "Lost mini suitcase (was found and delivered within 24hrs) Broken wheels on bigger suitcase"
Pros: "Everyone was super super welcoming and accommodating. My favorite part was them not waking me up for a meal, instead they left me a sticker to call whenever I’m ready to eat."

Pros: "The flight was on time and people were friendly. The pilot communicated with the passengers when there was turbulence which I appreciate"
Cons: "There wasn't enough variety of movies to watch on such a long flight."

Pros: "WiFi in flight is very useful for me long flight. Staffs every helpful at my requested."
Pros: "Had to request a wheelchair at the last minute. Staff was swift and courteous. During the flight it was rather bumpy so drink/snack service wasn't as often. Flight attendants were minimally invasive for safety belt checks. Food was decent. For the price I paid, at the last minute, I cannot complain."
Cons: "Wait for wheelchair was rather long. But it's holiday season and it's last minute so it's to be expected."
Pros: "Flying EVA is always a great experience. This time no different. Elite cLass is very much worth the extra cost."
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "Seat is wide enough"
Cons: "Some crews are stress as I could see it in their facial expression"
Pros: "Food and service was exemplary."
Cons: "Seats are smaller than US standard."

Cons: "Too long. No ones fault."
Pros: "Plane was clean, service was prompt, and staff were very friendly and accommodating. food served was far better than meals served on other airlines."
Pros: "For a close to full flight the boarding procedure was quick and efficient. We were able to leave early and get to our destination an hour early. The in flight entertainment was not the widest selection but still had a wonderful selection of movies"
Cons: "For such a long flight the seats are very uncomfortable. The flight cabin doesn't seem to have a flow which is depressing cause they are a big part of the experience"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats were roomy."
Pros: "Flight crew was very good. Service was great. Flight took off and landed safely...... most importantly."
Cons: "Hated being told at checkin that my regulation size carry on bags were slightly over weight and my only option was to go over on the floor and open them up to redistribute the weight. I was reluctantly fine with checking one of the bags, however not with being treated so carelessly and disrespectfully. I am not the kind of person that is ok with being put in that situation. As an airline I understand you need to have rules and guidelines to function, however sending me over to open my luggage on the floor in front of 1000's of other people is just humiliating!! If that is such a strict policy you really should have a space with some kind of privacy available and set up for customers to prepare to make things meet your standards. Then he changed my seat assignment for some reason and put me in an exit row..... not explaining that there is NO SPACE AT ALL for ANY carry on bags. That means no pills nearby that I needed, or headphones, magazines, iPads etc. I was really mad when I sat down and immediately asked to be moved. Luckily someone was willing to trade. Needed more to eat on a 14 hour flight also. Was really hungry."
Pros: "I like the service, I felt that it was genuine and with care. They made the long flight seems short."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. I hope that they can provide light meals on the flight which was offered by the other airline (CX and EY)"
Pros: "Flight had a short layover and service was good."
Pros: "Check in was great, the staff is very helpful and gives you the best attention."
Pros: "Spacious economy seats, tasty airline food. Professional crew and staff"
Cons: "LAX boarding area was cramped but this was probably not an EVA Air issue but more a LAX airport issue. Had NO idea Tom Bradley even had such cramped gates"
Pros: "Great service from check in and boarding to in-flight service and arrivals."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Clean, good food and good service"
Cons: "Online check in and seat selection did not work"
Cons: "Exact time"
Pros: "Boarding was delayed for a while, so the workers went around checking everyone's passport and getting ready to make boarding very fast when the plane was finally ready."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Extra charge for surfboard was outrageous, finally got it down to $100 but I will put on social media they wanted to charge me $300 for a surfboard that was under 6 foot. All other airlines for surfboard under 9'6 are only $125 maxim. So completely unfair"
Pros: "Crew was very nicker- great seats, not crowded"

Pros: "The flight crew was great and met my expectations."
Cons: "I flew on 4 separate planes and each one of them had noticeable issues with cracked interior components and torn materials. My seat was reassigned at check-in from the one I has selected 2 months earlier without notifying me. I went from a window seat to an aisle set for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "The food and the service"
Cons: "I’m regarded as disabled, usually I have TSA pre-check privilege in most of the airline I took before but unfortunately, I couldn’t get any from Asiana. The guy helped me on checking in told me that AsIan’s didn’t provide this service to the customer. I felt not quite happy but ok with this. The one made me feel upset is they didn’t give me pre-boarding even though they already noticed that I’m disabled. I needed to wait on the line for over 25 minutes, my left leg very tired. I can walk but I can’t stand for long time, it hurts my back and leg. I got almost same style Vegetarian food in both dinner and breakfast, all vegetables, no tofu at all."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Very limited options for food and entertainment. It is not the top-tier experience like Cathay or Singapore airlines. A good tier-2 airlines."

Cons: "Bit of turbulence, but hey that's what happens when you fly."
Pros: "Tons of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom"

Cons: "I liked everything .."
Pros: "I loved the leg room and the pleasant classical music that was playing during boarding and exiting."
Cons: "I didn’t realize some of the food was going to be so spicy. Perhaps a bit of a warning next time would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Delicious food"
Pros: "I appreciated the food and service from the stewardesses was great. The red embroidered apron was a nice touch."
Cons: "My luggage was late, and I did not receive it until 24 hours after I landed in Hanoi. This caused a big inconvenience. I had packed my things very carefully, and most of what I needed the first day was in there."
Pros: "very attentive and kind hearted flight attendants, asiana airline always gives me the best impression and satisfying flight experience always. Thank you always!"
Cons: "the aircraft I was in supposedly provide wifi service, however I could not connect to it,tried and checked several times during the flight,it was not available. Except that part,every other parts:perfect!"
Pros: "The large leg space/room!"
Cons: "The food was limited and it's actually not that good."
Pros: "Toothbrushes/paste and mouthwash were provided in flight restrooms. Staff frequently came by and checked on passengers with drinks or snacks to ensure optimum comfort. Flight staff boarded the plane swiftly while also greeting each passenger warmly. In flight meals were great. Flight was short which was happy."
Pros: "The service was top-notch, and so was the food. On my flight from San Francisco to Korea, things were just fine, Though I wish I had the window seat that was actually adjacent to the window, and not separated from the window by a desk/table arrangement. Aside from that, everything was grand."
Cons: "The flight from Korea to Bangkok was a different story. The seats resembled those you would find in premium economy on other airlines. While the food and service were good, the entertainment was abysmal. Basically, you were watching TV with poor quality reception and no ability to choose what you wanted to watch other than flipping through the channels to see what was already on. Although this was nearly a seven hour international flight, The entertainment package felt like something you would encounter on a cheap charter bus to Vegas. If I knew this was the aircraft I would be taking, I would never have booked on Asiana. The flight to Bangkok was really substandard."
Pros: "Food given even though it was a short flight"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. They're the big part of the reason why we fly Asiana. American-owned airlines are rude, old and crabby."
Cons: "The food was hit or miss. Our first meal was ok. 2nd meal was just a sandwich which is not that great. The 3rd meal which was chicken was dry and tasteless. My husband and I couldn't eat it. It's like eating a styrofoam cup."
Pros: "i think asiana is one of the best airline in market for their professional services. thanks."
Cons: "Time delay."
Pros: "The food was decent for airline food, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Way too much turbulence. Not sure if this was due to being at the back of the plane or if the weather was bad, but it was constant and very jarring. For a 12 hour flight this makes things extremely uncomfortable. Also the plane was a little older and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. The in flight entertainment system was also hard to use, unresponsive touch screen and strange little remote. Additionally we sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for flight documentation. This not only caused us to miss our bus once we arrived at our final destination, but also added another hour to an already very long flight. The captain was not very forthcoming with information about the delay. Overall the experience was unpleasant and I don't look forward to having to repeat it."
Pros: "I loved that I had plenty of space to stretch my long legs. Also, there was enough space between the seat in front of me even when they were in reclined position. Nothing was too close in my face."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Everything it was great experience flying with asiana"
Cons: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment console was broken."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Plane clean, food not great but decent. Takeoff right on tme."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no leg room, made for a long, uncomfortable 11 hour flight. Small selection of movies."
Pros: "Short flight but everything first class"
Pros: "Asiana service"
Cons: "Old plane. Small screens and worn out fixtures."
Pros: "Very comfortable, good service. Only thing I didn't like was the way they do the entertainment system. You change "channels" and to watch the thing you want you have to find it and then rewind to the beginning. The music channels loop after about 6 songs."
Pros: "The attendants are super nice."
Cons: "I do not like the time of departure. People can still work if the flight is at night and not at 1230PM."
Pros: "Crews are very attentive and great with their service!s. Way better than many big Asia airlines!"
Cons: "The plane OZ 211 is so old and the entertainment system is very very old! The seats aren't very comfortable either!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff"
Cons: "Food was just okay No power outlets in economy seats Short delay"
Pros: "The cabin was surprisingly warm unlike other airlines I've been on. They also provided nice toiletries in the bathroom like face toner and mouth wash."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable especially for such a long flight"
Cons: "I wad so confused. I wonder Why your call centers registered in korea, china and u.s in lost service always? Instead of me, a hotel manager talked with call center after so many trying. But just told her it was my fault and you cut the call. I think your customer service team helped me more proper and instantly. But I was so sorry because your team just tell me to cancel and to rereserv again. Of course It was one of the solution I agree. If I buy the other ticket. I can get a boarding pass with my name is on it with rightly wrritten. Beyond reponsibility, please think about my side in china. I hope you check about my comment and to think about your attitude. To consider your side, Just send you message individually. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was Ok. I appreciate Asiana airline. When I was stuck in Air port for 8hours, they saved me. I had a lot of luggages at that time. Because I would go back Korea. They were so nice and helped me quckily."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "I purchased ticket for my son to travel to and from ROK, on his return he was told the time on his itenary was incorrect and that he needed to contact the airline. He was put aside and the ticket agents continued to help others. My son informed me and I made multiple attempts to call all three of the airlines connected to his flight (Asiana, Haiana, and Jet Blue) who each kept putting the blame on the other airline. No one helped me. I continued to make calls back and forth. My son went in line again as his flight departure time was approaching quickly. He was told the same thing and had to stand aside in the line again. This was his first time traveling alone. I was very concerned and it was at the middle of the night here in the US. I did not sleep throughout the night trying to call for help to help my son on his flight or another flight because he had already missed his flight by this time. The manager for Haiana was only able to tell me that she created a help desk case and they will get back to me. It has been over 24 hours and I ended up paying a thousand dollars for a new ticket to get my son on a flight this morning as he was left at the airport all this time and he needs to be back for school. The ticket cost more than it was for his original round trip ticket and it was the cheapest I could have found after a long search. I really think that we should be refunded this money and deserve an explanation for why my son could not get on his flight because during the phone calls I was told that the flight did leave as scheduled and on time. Please advise."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Entertainment - difficult to find movie channel guide"
Cons: "UNITED CONTINENTAL SERVICE GOT ME TO HOUSTON ALIVE. BUT EVERYTHING ABOUT THE TERMINAL AT SFO TO THE AIRPLANE (A 320) AND SERVICE ON BOARD ARE VERY DISAPPOINTING AND I DREAD MY RETURN FLIGHT."
Pros: "The crew was nice and reply promptly. They provide water/juice and snacks several times besides the main meals."
Cons: "It was confusing to do online checking because I couldn't check in on Vietnam airline website. The airplane was old and had bad smells."
Cons: "Six empty seats in the “emergency row” I was not feeling well and needed the extra space.5 hours into the 13 hr long haul to Taipei, I felt like I was going to hyperventilate, they charged me $120. Bucks for the privilege. Kosher meal was unbeatable."
Pros: "Couldn't get the seat we requested, Airlines still use dial up Credit card machine to process, unable to process C.C payment after using 3 different C.C Crew instead blamed me and ask me to use ATM to get Cash !"
Pros: "Smooth and easy"
Cons: "Check in location not clear in the beginning."

Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."

Cons: "I got economy, the seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The ability to select a special meal ahead of time. Meal selection out of the US was better than coming from oversea into the US."

Cons: "The 2nd meal was tasteless and didn’t have the ingredient as the name suggested, a Chinese pickled veggie"
Pros: "Food, entertainment OK"
Cons: "China Airlines is obsessed with weighing carry-on luggage. They weigh it when you check your bags, and they weigh it again at the gate. What I am I supposed to do at the gate? Throw my stuff away?"
Pros: "The air line reported 2 of my luggages as delayed and I still have not heard news on my 3rd missing luggage"
Cons: "How can u loose a luggage"
Cons: "I had a bad flight, we had 16 hrs delay because technical breakdown. I can understand it, but everybody on the flight were really upset with china airline attitude. All passengers must sit on the plane for 3 hours before we went out of the plane, at that time the flight attendants and crew leave without an explanation, We didnt know what happnened!!!!! And during 16 hrs delay in Sanfransico Airport, we didnt have hotel for rest, we really tired without sleep. I dont know how to explain my thinking about chine airline attitiude, really upset with their way about problem solving. I just can say that i will never flight with china airline again in the future..."
Pros: "The food they served was very good."
Pros: "Entertainment device is updated and good"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."
Pros: "I like the boarding because they went by zone. I also like the food and drink that was provided."
Cons: "I didn't like the restroom it was too small to go number 2 in."

Pros: "Super nice service from the crew on the flight. And the young woman at the check-in counter in San Francisco was terrifically friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was just slightly delayed leaving in both San Francisco and Taipei. But the headwinds (certainly no fault of China Airlines!) made us 45 minutes late in Taipei, making us a little anxious about making connections, especially when we saw the long line to x-ray baggage going from one terminal to the next."
Cons: "Seats are bad"
Cons: "They waited for another flight to come in I think because they could not sell enough seats so they doubled up one of their flights and made us wait for 12 hours very sad miss my connecting flight and further flights and friends at destination turned into a horrible experience but on my way home now hopefully it won't be so bad going hole"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful flight attendants!"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for the meals... No snacks available for in-flight purchases... No menu of beverages available..."

Pros: "People"
Cons: "Lack of movie selection"
Cons: "Food selection could better. Also hotter (warmed Or cooked more)"
Cons: "Great services on board"
Pros: "better food"
Pros: "Lovely gracious Staff."
Cons: "One negative employee. Not so comfortable seat on new plane."
Pros: "Over all it was a great experience. I dropped my boarding pass from tapi to bkk while I was at SFO the crew trade me down and gave me my boarding pass , saving me lots of hassle . I was impressed for over all service."
Cons: "The boarding wasn’t done according to seating manner at SFO . Didn’t look he that ."
Cons: "Food Crew"
Pros: "Nothing, flight got cancelled"
Cons: "My experience with china airlines was the worst. I travel with surfboards. I called a head of time and got quoted a price and when I showed up they tried to charge me quadruple. They said I needed to pay 460 dollars! After arguing with them for 1 hr. They told us the flight was cancelled. Went to Singapore air& they were the best. Free for surfboards. And staff was very helpful. China air is unprofessional, and disrespectful. I will never fly with them again, nor will I recommend them to any of my friends, family, or colleagues."
Pros: "The plane was very clean and new looking. Customer service from all employees was terrific."
Cons: "On both China Airlines flights, the wifi system did not allow my phone to access the link to purchase access. The food options were just OK."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant and did their job well."
Cons: "Despite checking in 2hrs or more before boarding, the China Airlines airport agent seated my wife and I in different rows without asking us what our seating preferences were. On the connecting 2hr flight from TPE to KIX we were seated 10 rows away from each other. We trusted the agent to be smart and professional and let him choose our seats not caring too much other than to be seated together and was grossly disappointed. He spent a good deal chatting with his female coworker when he should've done his job better. We won't be flying China Airlines in the future and will pay more for better service."
Pros: "over all good"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "good leg room, excellent food, service in Economy better than I've had in some other first class."
Cons: "A350 seat cushions are a little short for us tall folks."
Pros: "Flight was delayed which made me lose my connecting flight to austin. At the counter I was told that they had rescheduled but that I was late. I was late because customs took long and the flight from Taipei was 30 minutes late. So it's not like I was wasting time. I did not appreciate that the blame was placed on me in the way the counter people communicated with me. I noticed that the counter woman, and the supervisor did not speak to me at all. Not even to say "let me find out" or "sorry for the inconvenience" but both did speak to other customers that were of Asian Descent. They communicated both in English and Chinese. The young woman that booked the flight for me (different one from counter woman) was decent and attentive. Sherry who was the third woman I dealt with when I needed to sort the baggage issue was very attentive even explaining to the supervisor why It was the second time I was back at their offices. She went out of her way to make sure I saw my bags delivered to the UA luggage. But again, I am very disappointed and can't help to notice that other passengers received basic cordial treatment when I was blatantly ignored."
Pros: "The entertainment is ok"
Cons: "Waited more than 1 hr for wheelchair assist. Almost got left by the plane in sfo. In taiwan even they mark wheelchair assist in the ticket of my 73 year old dis abled mom they told us she is not in the list in taiwan we can wait for 1 or more hrs but they will close our gate in 30 min. So i haft to help my mom transfer to the gate. Very bad service especially to elderly and dis abled"
Pros: "Individual movies screens for each passenger with unlimited free movies/music/etc. Leg rests that pop out & seats that recline more than most. Very nice crew. Food was pretty good."
Pros: "Staff and Crew were nice to passengers."
Cons: "No English subtitles for the movies on board. Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding at SFO was confusing since attendance gave wrong information so that we kept sitting to wait for our turn. And it ended up kind of disordering. Airline needs to improve this small process while customers waited for so long to board."
Pros: "Good Service and very comfortable business class seat"
Pros: "Crew changed my seat after finding out my chair was broken"
Cons: "my chair was broken and wouldn't lean back. i felt really thirsty a lot of the plane ride"
Cons: "Food and seats were mediocre at best. Two of the flight attendants that we had the displeasure to experience appeared irritated and when asked for a glass of water we had to wait 30 minutes (after asking three times). On top of that, once we arrived to Tokyo they lost our luggage. We kept phoning the Tokyo desk, but then the airline went on strike and our calls were left unanswered. Japan Airlines, which handles all baggage for all carriers in and out of Narita couldn't do anything either. When they were finally operational I phoned again for two more days with no offer of compensation for additional clothing that we had to buy. Finally on the 7th day they indicated they found the luggage and it never left SF!"
Pros: "Service, Seat, food, and movies."
Cons: "having to get up and ask for more beverages"
Pros: "The crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food needs a little bit of variety"
Pros: "I loved the food service and good customer service overall"
Cons: "Hard to fall asleep but I'm sure it's like that on every flight"
