Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."
Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."
Pros: "Typical flight and all went well."
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."

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: "Professionalism with friendliness of the crew and the service provided."
Cons: "No issues with flight and boarding."
Pros: "Everything was excellent crew was very helpful"
Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."

I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."
Pros: "Food wasn’t bad and flight crew were polite Flight took off around the time intended. Boarded and deplaned passengers quickly"

Pros: "The stewardess of the flight from LA to Osaka was awesome , I don't remember her exactly name , I think she is older then other crew members working that day on economy class . 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."

Cons: "only limited number of movie."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."

Pros: "The flight went well and the 3 meals were interesting. The staff was professional."
Cons: "It's kinda hard to sleep. Some of the food could taste a bit fresher and less microwaved."
Pros: "Everything was good, solid across the board. Nothing to not like. I especially liked the legroom in economy. Probably the best legroom I"ve had in economy."
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."

Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."

Cons: "Food was bad compared to other flights to Tokyo that I have taken and entertainment was very weak."
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."
Pros: "great service, great food."
Cons: "I wanted to try the internet but wasn't able to get it to work. I was tired and I did not ask for help though."
Cons: "Keep doing same things"
Cons: "Flight delays is never appreciated."

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: "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."

Cons: "Wait for wheelchair was rather long. But it's holiday season and it's last minute so it's to be expected."

Pros: "Food and service was exemplary."
Cons: "Seats are smaller than US standard."

The flight was so long , there hasn't been much comfort improved for the seats and overall in the past 15 years."

Pros: "The flight crew were helpful and attentive. Directions were clear and the boarding was organized."
Cons: "The seats! The seat was uncomfortable that I had to use my U shaped neck pillow as a seat cushion. My flight was 15+ hours but within 3 hours my behind was killing me."

Cons: "Flight attendants were rude and made you feel that you were bothering them. Beverage offered twice in 15 1/2 hours. Beverages when available if you want to ask the flight attendant, but again, they were definitely put out when you asked them. Caroline wasn’t kept clean throughout the 15 1/2 hours- i’m accustomed to light attendance walking through the isles periodically to get customers garbage regular league so that it doesn’t build up."
Pros: "Familiarity with Cathay Pacific procedures"
Cons: "The airplane seemed a bit outdated. A WiFi option would have been more pleasant. Crew spoke only English, not the classic Cathay Pacific experience to HK."
Pros: "Crew was nice to direct you to where your seat is. Food was good."
Cons: "Snacks n drinks..water or soda offered after few hrs from dinner. Passengers should not ask for drinks or snack. I mean crackers or biscuits few hrs in mid flight. Even if passengers are mostly asleep, a crew member can walk down aisles with a tray of snacks. This will help some people wha mught not like the food or type 2 diabetic people who needs to eat n drink every 2 to 3 hrs. Signage on boarding gate is not clear. Your flight number and boarding time was in small projected sentences under a huge lettered former destination place."
Pros: "Staff was terrific. On time. That’s most important."
Cons: "Seats were not great. Don’t recline properly. Food Very salty. No WyFy. Issue with point allocations and issue entering business Lounge. Purchased membership for this purpose .

Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."

Cons: "boarding took very long."

Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare.

Cons: "Where do you start? Boarding process made no sense so i wont even try to explain it. Just trust me. Once we got on the plane they wouldnt let me plug into the usb port while we were on the ground. Food Service was terrible. They woke me up (minutes after id fallen asleep) for both food service. First time i thought was accident. Second time i asked them not to wake me up and they said i have to get a do not disturb sticker (why wasnt i just given one before so i could make the decision to use it or not on my own?) Also the food was terrible. I dont expect much from airline food but i can say ive had acceptable meals on other airlines (emirates and lufthansa). The food was not what i expected for one of the highest rated airlines. The flight attendant had me put the seat up during food service so the lady behind me could eat. Wtf?? Never had to do that on another airline. When i was not sleeping they rarely came down the isles with water or juice trays. (I saw it once toward the end of the flight)...and trust me i didnt miss it because i was sleeping. When i did get water i had to beg for ice as well."
Cons: "We were 40 minutes late leaving L.A. and I missed my connecting flight in Hong Kong. Had to wait two and half hours for the next flight to Bangkok!"

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."
Cons: "I paid for a window seat through your website. When I arrived at the gate I saw that I had a middle seat. China airlines stated that they do not honor outside booking seat request. It was very uncomfortable for 16 hours."

Cons: "Comfort. Too tight Food. Mediocre in economy"
Pros: "Vegan meal was okay. Check in swift and good. Too crowded. Seats too tight."
Cons: "Hard to ask for more spacious seating but I will."
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: "Check-in counter - staff was corteous"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, air line did not offer any food nor hotel accommodation. We were rebooked to a different carrier, departed 13 hours later."
Cons: "the seats in economy are to small....china airlines put those small seats in to add capacity....those are not factory seats"
Pros: "Better service and food than recent USA experience China Airlines at LAX had me sign a statement that I knew I may be denied entry to destination Indonesia, as told required exit ticket which did not have...was not asked anything at indo immigration, customs, etc a breeze"
Cons: "Too small seats I believe Kayak info was China Airlines allowed 55 lbs checked - China Airlines site says 50....so May be important to travelers to do their own verifications..."
Pros: "Totally filled to capacity. Am 6 ft guy broad shoulders squeezed next to another guy bigger than me. Totally cramped in middle seat. Holiday season travel. I should know better. Most challenging flight in years."
Cons: "Totally cramped in."
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all"
Pros: "cheap ticket buf it comes with a cost-- a seat on the end rear section of the plane!"
Cons: "the cheap ticket that you reserved on line puts you at the tail portion of the plane where you will have to endure a 14 hours of turbulence. food is not impressive! the plane left lax so late that we have to run to our connecting gate in taipei!"
Pros: "On time arrival; good in-flight service. Plenty of entertainment options."
Pros: "Food was pretty good (for airplane food), staff was friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable"
Pros: "Flight landed on-time and was smooth. Staff was helpful and profession. My request for vegetarian meals failed (might have been my fault) and the staff really went out of their way to make sure I got vegetarian meals anyway. And the vegetarian meals were excellent. Good experience on a long flight."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "The food in economy was not very good. A few pieces of fatty pork over rice."

Cons: "I didn't like that we didn't have a free row since our flight was packed - but that's not really much of a negative."

Pros: "The economy class seats are actually some of the best to sleep in!"
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."
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: "Very attentive staff Plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Food was meh but that's common for airline food"
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: "Crew was very efficient with great customer service"
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: "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: "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: "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: "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."
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: "For such a short flight it was fine."
Cons: "Boarding was later and leaving the runway was late. It was a late flight already so this made it even more tiring."
Pros: "Had a newer plane which was very nice with a cool wooden wall look."
Cons: "Maybe some more current movies."
Pros: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "The flight in Premium Economy is a good experience, worth the price of the ticket. I am accustomed to very long flights between Southeast Asia and Europe: this one compares favorably."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with the flight. Being a frequent flier I used the very short line in LAX to get my boarding pass. All other passengers were queuing up a very, very, long line. Since every single passenger has to go through a face to face session with a physical person, CI should really have more personnel available at LAX for the check-in procedures. The business lounge, provided by Korean Airlines, is a big disappointment. Food not worth mentioning. Going through security at TPE for passengers in transit there is no short line. The only line is very, very long, although quick enough. The facility for this procedure should also be renewed."
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: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food & water were passed out on time"
Cons: "Too full, seats were so near each other"
Cons: "Im vegetarian and there is not options tu select special meals for vegetarians, instead Avianca from Salvador to LAX there have."
Pros: "I liked the efficiency of boarding and plenty of room for baggage. The food was enough and satisfactory. The movie selection was impressive. The staff was courteous and professional. Bathrooms were kept clean, flight was on time."
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: "Seat, service, entertainment."
