She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter . The stewardess saw that and helping me a hand . I wish every airlines has someone like this crew member . Thank you so much for the awesome service on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Cons: "There is nothing to dislike about the flight"

Cons: "Meals are not fantastic; they never seem to be in coach. Much of the entertainment seemed similar to what was on the same aircraft when I traveled three months earlier."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "It was a good price. I always like JAL flights that provide much better service than American companies. The Japanese staff are EXCELLENT! My flight was delayed from Montreal, but when I arrived Chicago, the JAL crew was waiting to take me to the next terminal!! (This never happens for American airline companies!!)"

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: "The boarding was efficient. Cabin and lavatories were clean."
Cons: "The interior seems dated, with old-school channel based entertainment system, unlike the ondemand IFE most Asian airlines are equipped with. Meal service was also very slow - took over 50 minutes to serve the economy cabin. There was no choice of main available.. Main was an array of fish cakes type street snacks. It was edible but not impressive."
Pros: "Foods are good, crews are good."
Pros: "good selection of movies and audio, responsive and caring service crew. Plane cabin was clean and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "Passengers in front alway lowered their seats and the amount of space to move for someone over 6 feet made the flight uncomfortable. the woman in front of me was short too so I did not understand her need to push her seat back.

Not the level of service expected from an international airline."

Cons: "More leg room on long international flights."
Cons: "Catering and professionalism of the crew could have been better."
Cons: "The food service could have been better . Quality is poor ! There was one lunch service, breakfast service and one snack service through 19.5 hours of nonstop flight.

Pros: "Pleased that the flight departed on time and arrived 50 minutes early. Sad that waiting for my luggage frittered away the time we gained by arriving early."
Cons: "Having your bags tagged as “priority “ really doesn’t mean anything. Watched nearly two flights’ luggage go by on the carousel before mine came out. This is becoming the norm over the past several months for most airlines and airports. I don’t mind waiting for my bags. I do mind waiting with a false expectation of priority service."

Cons: "Flight arrived from SFO 15 min late, and airline cancelled numerous connecting flights to various cities, including mine to Hanoi from Hong Kong. Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."
Pros: "Brand new A350-900 airplane. Better movie selection. Nicer bathrooms."
Cons: "No more advanced seat selection except for an additional $180. No more serving wine and beer with dinner although I think its still available on request. A lot more screaming kids on the flight. Cathay is becoming more like the budget Chinese airlines. Sad."

Pros: "The crew and staff were generally friendly and the food was fine."

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."

The crew was unwilling to help me find something else to eat and they were very rude. I am very disappointed of their customer service standards. I will not use Turkish Airlines again."

Pros: "Service, Media"
Cons: "Seat room, very tight."
Cons: "Despite having seats assigned we did not fly Customer service was just awful dealing with overbookings"

Cons: "I'm a wheelchair passenger, which was a DISASTER in Istanbul!. It took nearly an hour to get to off and to passport control. And on the plane, it was very uncomfortable because of so little leg room.

Cons: "Please have better seats in normal economy that’s friendlier for people over 6’. I’m 6’4” and I’m still having body pains from being jammed into a small seat that went foward as you lean backwards. So I couldn’t be comfortable for 16 hours of flying. KLM, United, LOT all for example have much better"
Pros: "Flight was on time, arrived just a few minutes late, and newer aircraft."

Pros: "Starters, the flight was co coached with American airlines which is one of the worst airlines I've traveled so far. They lost my bad, and so far no one can help me locate it. Changed my flight without noticing me, made me run around the airport like crazy trying to catch the connecting flight just to find out that AA airlines already changed my itinerary."

Pros: "upgraded to business, which made for a nice ride home."
Cons: "seat and monitor seemed to have minds of their own, but only caused a minor inconvenience I'm frustrated with AA's information on movies, which is questionable and unrealable. For example, the recently released film 'Coco' was listed as PG-13 and not included in the "Disney" category. "Justice League" was listed as R. There are several other examples of misinformation in their movie listings. For parents who use the ratings as one piece of information to guide their children, it would be nice to have correct information when making selections. this problem is not new; it's been this way for over a year now. I hoped that over time they would get it right, but alas, it remains inconsistent at best."

Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, no problems or hassles. Seat reclined and was reasonably comfortable. Left early, arrived even earlier."
Cons: "Crew was more robotic than human, which is bexoming a trend on AA. No smiles, no acknowledgment, just doing the job of handing out food and picking up trash. No personal touch whatsoever. Food was subpar for an AA flight, especially international. Entertainment system has many defects and problems, for example "search" is useless. Uninspiring and forgettable film choices as well. The knob to control air flow was broken which made it chilly. To finish as I started, a more engaged and pleasant crew could have made all the other things more palpable and acceptable. They were just too cold, like the temperature in the cabin and distant."
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"

Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"

Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."

Cons: "My experience with red-eye flights is that the lights go off, the crew disappears and everyone tries desperately to get some sleep. Not so with these guys - lights on and crew regularly pushing the drinks cart down the aisle. And a lack of free snacks as well (not even pretzels??)."
Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."

Pros: "We were already delayed by alot"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "1. Boarding arrangement was very poor. 2. No zone number on our boarding passes. Although we were seated in seats 22,23, we were automatically pushed to zone 5 and forced to board last. 3. My wife and I were assigned two middle seats in two separate rows. 4. We were forced to check in our cabin baggage saying that there was lack of overhead space, but when we boarded among last passengers, there were a number of empty overhead bins. We could easily have saved 45 minutes in Toronto airport without having to wait for our bags."
