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 .

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.

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."

Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."

Very impressed & looking forward to our return flight home."
Cons: "Cannot say there were any negatives."

Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Movie selection, food options, loud alarm before boarding"

Pros: "Excellent service and probably the most efficient boarding process I’ve ever been a part of. Food service went by without a hitch, and the stewardesses knew English very well so we felt comfortable and welcomed. I also really liked being able to get terminal/travel information from the infotainment system. Being that I’ve never been to ICN or NRT before, having access to terminal maps and basic instructions on how to find connecting flights and baggage claim areas was probably one of the most helpful features of the flight!"
Cons: "I am 5’11” and found my seat somewhat uncomfortable. It didn’t detract from being able to sleep at all, but it did seem like the seats on this airline might be at its most comfortable with shorter passengers."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "comfortable seats"

Pros: "The transit lounges at the new Seoul terminal are outstanding."

Pros: "The movie selections were pretty good and was enough entertainment for the long flight"
Cons: "The flight delay forced us to run from one end of the Incheon Intl Airport to another to catch our connecting flight."

Pros: "Bags were not checked through to Cebu because of the 10+ hr layover. Had to go out to arrival area to follow up on bag transfer. Korean Air wouldnt issue my boarding pass for my INC to CEB flight at LAX so I have to get in line again at the Korean Air check- in counter in INC then was told to go to Jin Air since it was operated by them. Jin Air wouldn't issue a boarding pass because my flight was at 8 AM the following day. I ended up sleeping at the predept area until the counter opened."

Pros: "More than enough seat space I was on seat 28. I actually slept most of the time which usually doesn't happen so I guess it was just that comfortable. Attendants were great and food was fair but can't really expect much for airplane food. I would definitely fly Korean air again."

Pros: "I was recently on flight CI054 from Auckland to Taipei, with a short layover in Brisbane (my final destination was Incheon, South Korea. Due to fog in Brisbane, the flight was diverted to Gold Coast. After arriving in Gold Coast we had to take a bus to Brisbane. It's kind of a long story, but basically I will say it was handled well for the most part my China airlines. Certainly, fog was not there fault and they did everything they could to accommodate passengers, including putting us up in two very nice hotels."
Cons: "The one complaint I have is when disembarking the plane in Gold Coast, there was no China Airlines personnel to be found anywhere. Nobody on the plane knew what we were doing - who was supposed to get on the bus and who was supposed to stay. The Australian immigration authorities and Gold Coast airport staff took control, but again, China Airlines staff had completely disappeared. Nobody was there to tell us whether we should collect our luggage, how to get an appropriate visa to enter Australia, where to go to get on the bus (or even if we SHOULD get on the bus). I was really frustrated at the point, but other than that, I would say they handled it quite well"

Cons: "No plugs for laptops"

Pros: "seat spacing good in economy personal entertainment system crew very helpful and courteous good overhead storage"
Cons: "On 2 of our 4 flights on this itinerary, we were last to be served meals and there was only the Korean meal left. My husband chose to eat it both times but I declined... need to provide more western meals."

Cons: "Boarding would have been fast if the passengers seating in the back rows were called first to board, followed by the middle rows, and last to board, people seated in the fron rows (after of course calling the priority passengers. Traffic on the aisle would be avoided"

Pros: "the amount of baggage allowed. the food. the people i was seated with. the flight movie selection. the staff. the beer. the free toothbrush, toothpaste, slippers, jeju island water"

Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After they told about change my flight to Asiana I finally agreed but I had to walk by myself to Asiana, ANA couldnt at least to make the changes to avoid me long time to stand in line by asiana airlines. I would never recomend ANA"

Cons: "More of an movie selection. Maybe up date movie ever 2-3 weeks as they become available for the company"

Pros: "The plane was new enough and clean, the food was modest but good, snacks were generous and tasty, but what sets ANA apart is the attentiveness, courtesy, and thoughtfulness of the crew. I used to fly Singapore Airlines often and felt this way about them, but in recent years I’ve noticed a fall off in service. ANA has maintained or even raised their standards of service."
Cons: "The food good but not great. But...it’s airplane food."

Pros: "felt Agent's kind care of elder (me) at Airport. Thanks."
Cons: "Full of passengers. Code Share!?"

Cons: "The check-in at LAX. They form 2 different lines for Economy. The 1st line was lined with the people arriving first. Then the 2nd line started to fill later. 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: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Gates kept changing flight was delayed multiple times the flight had no air so I was sweating the whole time my nose began to bleed. I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa they sent me on a hour long shuttle to another airport to fly out the next day."

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.

Pros: "Customer service and food!"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye. Also I will be happy to fly ANA again, but I would not take a redeye flight on any airline unless I was in business or first class which I cannot reasonably afford at the moment."

We bought the ticket November 11 it did not say we needed to get tested before flying When we went to check in there was a long line because a lot of people that was flying out did not know also about getting tested before flying Eva employees said that this protocol started December 1st if that’s the case why didn’t they email travelers that bought tickets before December 1st And let them know that covid19 test needed. Also at check in we were inline for 2 hours just to let us know we couldn’t fly out they should have a Monitor saying “ ATTENTION PASSENGERS IF YOU DON’T HAVE COVID-19 TEST RESULTS IN HAND YOU CANNOT A BOARD.” So that people didn’t half to stay in line for so long."

Pros: "I used my miles to upgrade to Laurel so the experience was great! EVA is always a good airline so not really many complains"

Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Reusable utensils and great food. Love Eva air!"

Pros: "Bigger space for legs room"
Cons: "The food"

Had to get up for water during the flight. Seemed like quite awhile between distribution but I may have missed them while sleeping."

Cons: "Food could be better. Might consider to add ice cream as desserts. Cakes for desserts were tasteless. Need to provide bottled water instead of pouring water half full. ANA beats EVA in these little extra details."

Cons: "Flight departed 30 minutes late, gate in SFO was a mad house with no practical lounge options for *G (must use UA Club in T3 which is a 10-15 minute walk). Please also give more than a thimble of water / beverages - serving sizes are tiny compared to US airlines."

Cons: "Boarding pass"

Pros: "A bit spacious seat in economic class"
Cons: "Too crowded due to 4 airlines come together"

Pros: "Puntuality"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean and facilities were kept in good order. MUCH better than flying on United."

Cons: "Salad dressing tasted weird."

Pros: "Clean and efficient. Catered to our needs. Definitely would travel them again."

Pros: "Good.service n clean. staffs are helpful.Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "On my flight they are few crying babies could' not relax.Babies take turn to cry."

Pros: "I was able to request a special meal, vegetarian, before my flight, food was served hot and very tasty"

Pros: "Staffs are all very polite and well mannered"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We nearly dehydrated during the trip. We're EXTREMELY skimpy on drinks. Had to ask 3x before I'd get something"

Pros: "Food was great and the crews were helpful. They do offer snacks/drinks in between meals. For those who do not know, they do offer wine as a drink in the Economy class (usually red wine)."
Cons: "Speakers are not good during announcement. I can barely hear it. if they can improve that, that will be great."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies, the food was good, and services"

Pros: "The flight attendants were on point and very well trained. Decent legroom in Economy class and decent inflight entertainment. Flight on tune and boarding was seamless. Will fly EVA air again."
Cons: "Food was decent but could have been better. Entertainment was ok but could have used more choices. Not much too gripe about though."

Pros: "terrible boarding crew"

Pros: "Flight comfortable but would have liked more water throughout flight"
Cons: "Service speed"

Pros: "Seats were nice and plane was clean"
Cons: "The ticketing agent assured me that he would handle my bag. When I arrived in Taiwan, I did not receive my bag. I believe my lack of Chinese and their weak English contributed to this problem."

Pros: "cheap airfare that includes check-in baggage, clean restrooms"
Cons: "Some brusque attendants at the counter and on the plane, cabin smells like pee (but only while boarding), standard legroom (72 cm), average food (Turkish Airlines is waaaay better)"

Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable, and the food options were stellar."
Cons: "Because I was checked in so late (they were reviewing my documents for over an hour) I think they forgot to place a tag on my suitcase. This is turn resulted in my suitcase being left in Taiwan where I had a 4 hour layover. I am now currently waiting for my bag to be delivered to my place of work (hopefully in one piece)."

Pros: "The boarding was easy and the planes were on time"
Cons: "The movie/TV selection was not very good and the weight limit for an international flight was very low."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Very good entertainment system."

Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "flight always late as usual"

Pros: "Plane was okay. Nice big screen"
Cons: "Crew was ok"

Pros: "Cathay Pacífic always high standard"

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."

Cons: "Both the USB and headphone Jacks were busted. Just had a bad seat this time."

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 . Was downgraded on my Marco Polo Membership. An error by the airlines. Won’t fly again with this airlines as a result."

Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent in carrying iut their work and responsibilities. They were friendly too."
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: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."

Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"

Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"

Pros: "The crew was totally professional, the food was good, but the passengers were horrible, which is not Cathay Pacific’s fault."

Pros: "Took off late, missed transfer flight, payed over 6 hours said they would buy lunch dinner. Could pay for hamburger with it, frltf"

Pros: "Cathay Pacific offers terrific service and decent food. The entertainment selection was good. Sitting in economy is tough for 14.5 hours unless you’re in a pod."

BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I typically like Cathay."
Cons: "Missed my flight from SLC to LAX due to Alaskan Airlines being unable to print my boarding pass in time."

Cons: "hong kong lkayover"

Cons: "Customer service is mediocre, nothing specials about their food. You have to ask for snacks on 13 hours flight."

Cons: "Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Cathay representatives automatically re-booked my connecting flight to Taipei assuming I would miss the connection. This was not the case. I was able to get to the connecting gate on time. Cathay representatives in Hong Kong were rude and unhelpful in re-issuing my boarding pass for my originally scheduled flight to Taipei."

Cons: "I was place right next to the washroom. As soon as I sat down, I can smell the washroom ,which was not clean properly because of the washroom odor."

Pros: "Good service"

Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"

Cons: "Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks."

Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."

Pros: "Nice staff, clean planes."
Cons: "Only issue was connecting gate in Hong Kong was extremely far and had to run to make connection. A bit of warning might have helped."

Cons: "Seat back was broken and could not recline at all during a 13+ hour flight."

Pros: "This plane was an Airbus 350. Seems to be the lated Airbus model. Business class section very much like the Boing 777, maybe a little better in some design modification of the seats."
