Cons: "Too much material in seatback pockets, couldn’t store anything"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The width of the seats"
Cons: "I'm stuck in Korea on Christmas Day instead of being in the Philippines. The Korean Air staff didn't speak English very well and it took an hour to figure out what was happening. I had to pay for my own hotel on top of my resort that I'm paying for in the Philippines and the next flight isn't until 9 pm Christmas day. Worst airline I have ever had to deal with. On top of my five days off this year and two were wasted on traveling. Big waste of time and money. Will probably not use your website or the airline again."
Pros: "Superb courtesy and attention."
Pros: "attentiveness of the crew to people of multiple nationalities."
Pros: "Overnight flight to San Francisco, the crew is stellar. They are calm and friendly and speak English well. I liked the food options, I would recommend sticking with the American choices if you're not used to Korean food. The dinner was actually pretty good. Entertainment options are plenty, I watched 3 movies and a documentary. The flight maps and outside cameras are great, and it showed that the pilots were constantly trying to find smooth air while the first portion of the flight was bumpy. They found it and the rest of the flight was fairly smooth."
Cons: "Aside from the turbulence, which is no fault to the airline, the only other issue was a smelly bathroom in the back that spread out a few rows. I wasn't sitting back there but I would have liked a freshener if I was in those back rows."
Pros: "Food"
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"
Pros: "First class on flights under 6 hours are short changed, not worth it."
Cons: "Chicken satay was gross"
Pros: "In flight map display, food, power outlets, seat size/space, good movie choices"
Pros: "for the flight from Seoul to Singapore, the flight was superb. In-flight services was perfect. food was excellent and the air stewards and stewardess were all very helpful and full of smiles."
Cons: "Check In process at Seoul Counter. the check-in was stressful. the ground staffs insist on using Check-in Kiosks provided even when it was not working as it should be. Ended up being bounced from one staff to another."
Pros: "The service provided was of a high standard. See the comments mentioned above,"
Cons: "The reading light has to be a bit more directed to the person sitting in the aisle seat."
Pros: "Polite and courteous crew. Good movies on the flight back."
Cons: "I think the announcements were too long and took up about the first 15 minutes of the flight...so kept turning your movie off. Should be a way to override that from your seat."
Cons: "Justfly has the worst customer service. There is no way to complain either. There is no executive office. They are not on any rating sites. They just don't care, because they are not held accountable for their actions."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, roomie, nice entertainment system that worked the entire time of the trip."
Cons: "Food was just ok"
Pros: "Child friendly with special requests meals. Very accommodating FAs. Always efficient from checkin to boarding. Smooth ride. Great inflight entertainment. Good food. Hot meals all the time. Very Good customer service. Would love to fly Korean Air again."
Pros: "upgrade the food quality"
Pros: "The service offered was different than my trip to INC from Kona. Which I would rate excellent service. But coming back the crew made it feel inconvenient. I had to wake for others to eat. I was very tired and just wanted to sleep."
Cons: "I had to wake up so person behind me could eat."
Pros: "The Crew was just wonderful.Food was excellent, plentiful & well presented. Aircrafts were clean And stocked. I had not flown this airline before but would defitely choose them again"
Cons: "JFK airport is hard to navigate & passengers in transit have to go thru security lines again & this gets frustrating."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and quick boarding process"
Cons: "Seat is a bit narrow,"
Pros: "The staff members were really nice and it was an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "The food. The noodles were over cooked, but the rest of the meal was good."

Cons: "I'm vegetarian so there were no vegetarian options"
Pros: "tye food was amazing!"
Pros: "Service, comfort, and seat room."
Cons: "Everything was enjoyable on return flight"
Cons: "I'm a big person so the seats are not comfortable for sleeping during long flights. Also, the Korean crew is usually excellent so I was surprised the crew on this flight was only average."
Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."
Cons: "China Air was alright. Just didn't like the whole running around the airport trying to figure out what counter to go to. Also I am not a big fan of getting transported via bus from terminal to plane"
Cons: "We are delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "The boarding went smoothly considering the number of people on board. It took a while to take off and to land, but that's because the airports are busy. The crew was incredibly well dressed in professional attire. The accommodations were amazing - the flight came with the standard pillow/blanket combo, disposable slippers, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, a snack, drinks, and the attendants dimmed the lights whenever they weren't serving - all free. The entertainment was amazing - I watched four Hollywood movies that I had been wanting to watch, and that was one section of the movies. There were also TV series and music available, both in English and Korean."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the crew's attention, especially from the center seat while speaking English. One of the meals gave me terrible gas, which was uncomfortable for me and my seat mates."
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat on line and ended up in a window seat. With the seats in front of my row reclined all the way back, I could not get out of my seat to use the restroom. Having just transferred from Korean Airlines and taken other asian airlines on my trip, it's a hard comparison to a domestic airline, although Hawaiian is among one of the better domestics. On my food tray, there was a bowl of miso soup, that the attendant was trying to hand me, while there was turbulence. The bowl of miso was smiling all over the tray, and on my napkin, and since I was on the inside seat, almost spilled all over me. On a previous Korean airline fight, also with turbulence, the attendant had taken the bowl off the tray, and covered it with a saran, and then handed it to me to make sure it wouldn't spill all over me. There's a bit of difference there."
Pros: "GOOD SERVICE."
Pros: "Customer service wss great! Good food. Great entertainment."
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Headphone jack in seat didn't work correctly"
Pros: "I had a great flight good service and excellent food."
Cons: "No complaints"

Stewardesses are so nice! Food is really good I will choose japan airline again!

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: "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."
Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and informative of delays"
Cons: "This was American Airlines .. my Bags came out late even though i was in Biz Class"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly."

Pros: "Pretty much everything"

Pros: "The window shades were so cool. Seat was small but fairly comfortable and I like the foot rest."
Cons: "No vegetarian options on the main meal menu"
Pros: "Was fed a meal and snacks/drinks for this connecting 3 hour flight in economy. Hard to sleep in the economy seats, But with a blanket and thick clothes it would be better! Japan Airlines crew extremely nice!"
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: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. 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"
Cons: "Flight was too warm for 11hrs and I had to ask for temp to be reduced. Very stuffy Didn’t have sparkling water after 4hrs or ginger ale"
Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "The Crew"

Pros: "Wonderful Crew."
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."

The bathroom was always clean, they keep it up so well. there was even toothbrushes and paper cup! I really enjoyed it even though I was in economy."
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: "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."

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."

Pros: "Food was good, entertainment was plentiful. One of the best flights I've ever been on."

Cons: "The food was a little strange, I had salmon and rice as “breakfast” with iceberg lettuce side salad. The pieces of salmon were little shreds with a funky taste. Not bad, but not what I wanted on a long red eye flight. Also I wish there’d been more Hollywood movie selections."

Cons: "No complaints from me"
Pros: "I missed my flight. The customer service agent was awesome!"
Cons: "Flying United. I missed my flight. The gate was packed with people so I sat literally a quarter mile away. The flight was delayed and I got a text telling me new departure time. I show up for new departure time. Plane left six minutes earlier. First thanks for the bad information. Second thanks for not paging me. Third I don't care when the plane is supposed to leave. Just tell me what time to be at the gate so I can stand around after an international flight. Oh and if a flight attendee to squawk rudely at a paying customer when we do land, why I'd just have to ask myself AGAIN ... why do I fly United?"
Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd.

Pros: "The plane they used was B-787"
Cons: "There was no entertainment flight system. The seats were also skimpy as it was a domestic flight"

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The captain failed to update the passengers and crew of significant change in flight path and delay. The flight flew off course for almost 30 minutes, while the flight attendants required everyone to remain seated due to supposed turbulence. We felt no turbulence for almost 25 mins. No update was given to passengers while we flew far off course. I motioned to the flight attendant, who was seated due to turbulence warning, to ask why we were off-course, but she could not get up. Many passengers were pointing to the flight path animation, to point out that we were flying straight north, instead of southeast. The flight attendant then called the captain for an update, and then the captain finally made an announcement about weather delays around shanghai."
Pros: "Everything.!"
Cons: "can't think of any.!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Both two meals were awesome."

Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."
Pros: "Flight was full but crew was attentive and very pleasant. Star Alliance Lounge at LAX had a good variety of food and drinks - Asian, western, small bites, snacks; red, white, bubbly and even a bartender who'll mix up cocktails. I love flying SQ."
Cons: "For a premium economy service, it was really good."
Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"
Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"

Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Pros: "They treated you like you were important and really took care of my every need"
Cons: "Getting on a cattle car to go to another terminal and then get in line again to go on the plane"

Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"
Cons: "The seat's recline button was broken which meant having to sit for 12+ hours upright. Upon hearing that the seat was broken, the airline crew offered my mother a check for 100 SGD (14% of the ticket value) to be used on Singapore airlines (for the discomfort caused for over 50% of the flight time). They changed her seat from Seoul to Singapore. When I wrote to them about it, they came back saying they had offered her a seat change from LA to Singapore, and she had declined, which is absolutely false. When I called that out, they said, maybe they did not offer aisle seats (note that the broken seat was not aisle). So it just shows that they don't want to accept that they messed up. They even told me that despite their best efforts in pre-flight checks, certain defects only surface when the flight is in progress. Will never ever travel on this airline again."
Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."
Pros: "Friendly attentive staff. Excell ent food and great. Service."
Cons: "Really crowded seats in economy."
Pros: "The main course"
Cons: "Items missing or substituted in the veg but was ok in regular meals. In one veg serving, no salad or dessert was included. Margarine instead of butter for only in the veg meal."
Pros: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable. There was ample entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Lost our luggage that full with our winter clothing for the trip singapore airlines delivered to our hotel the next day and compensate us ¥jpn 12000"
Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."
Pros: "Food and good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"
Pros: "I liked there was an opportunity to bid on an upgrade"
Cons: "Our bid was rejected yet there were empty seats in premium economy. Our bid was within the recommended range. You certainly would not have lost money upgrading us."
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"
Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Lounge experience was excellent. Service on the airline in general was excellent. Food and drinks we're just great. I enjoyed the sleeper seat that I was in. Everything was super smooth and I'm so glad I flew with Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report"
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."
Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Cons: "I did not fly out that night due to the covid testing needed. 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."
Cons: "I didn't like that all of the shades for the windows were down for the whole flight. It's too many hours in the dark. We took off at noon and spent the entire flight in the dark. Too many hours in the dark. Then land when night time. More darkness. With flight and wait till sun rise it's like 26 hours of darkness."
Pros: "The crew from Taipei to BKK were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The flight attendants paid attention to my mom who needed wheelchair to get the immigration. The airport staff in Taipei were very efficient in taking the passengers who needed wheelchair assistance to their connecting gates!!"
Cons: "Not sure if it’s because of the language barrier but l found one flight attendant to be rude in talking to some elderly passengers. However, the rest of the crew were pleasant"
Cons: "The entertainment options were not reflected online"
Cons: "Seats in economy are very tight and I'm thin. The movies were not as current as advertised. The crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Better movie selection"
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the crew was very attentive. Checking was easy."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Quality of food was good"
Pros: "Reusable utensils and great food. Love Eva air!"
Cons: "Space between seats - boarding time - food quality"
Pros: "On time flight times"
Cons: "Have better movie selection."
Cons: "Very capable on-the-ground staff and service personnel on the airplane. Their desire to take good care of passengers is obvious."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "There were not a lot of movie options."
Cons: "Food was little disappointing this trip..."
Pros: "They have a good number of movie and music selections. I got plenty of rest throughout the flight and barely felt the travel time. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, restroom is clean & tidy, good legroom beteeen seats, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Orderly boarding"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating!"
Cons: "Just being in the plane in general. Sitting for 12 hours is really uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good Service and Very Polite"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Booked/ paid/ and got refused to fly by Evaair as they and Justfly didn’t process the ticket properly even after received money for a month."
Cons: "The food was sad and mushy."
Pros: "Everything including the attendance supper service"
Pros: "They setup rows in the waiting area with a Zone number for each row. That way you can get a set in the row that is for your boarding zeom"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything- from customer service to comfort"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great seats!"
Pros: "Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Not a very good variety of movies. Flight attendants pretty Good but not friendly at all. Rarely smiled and usually didn’t speak unless you were asking for something. 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: "the boarding was a mess because there are two very close schedules in 12am"
Cons: "Flight was too long."
Pros: "Service and boarding were very nice and smooth. Food and entertainment were excellent."
Pros: "Seat is reasonably comfortable in Eco Plus"
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: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean and facilities were kept in good order. MUCH better than flying on United."
Pros: "Overall I was flying from SFO to Bali. So my first flight was about 14 hours. This whole trip all together was about 24 hours, and considering the length it was great. I was expecting to get restless and annoyed while on the plane, but it was easy to love around. The seats were comfortable, and the food was good. The airline staff was very nice and accomadating. So, because of there actions, I will most likely fly with them again."
Cons: "It was just long but it’s understandable because of the distance"
Pros: "Clean and efficient. Catered to our needs. Definitely would travel them again."
Pros: "Onboard foods and entertainment are good."
Cons: "Boarding area in SFO Gate 102 is cramped. Boarding group signs not clearly marked."
Pros: "Business Class Food Service"
Pros: "We lucked out on a sparsely filled flight so nearly everyone had a row to themselves, even in Economy class. Food was tasty, and the crew provided many opportunities for drinks. Crew was friendly and even volunteered some drawing packs for our 19-month old!"
Cons: "Snacks available limited to dry crackers and cookies primarily. Entertainment options - easy to use though limited selection (for US-based films at least)."
Pros: "Was given emergency exit seating. .. More leg room. .."
Cons: "Could not recline. ..Could not sleep in upright seating. .. Passenger behind me had no leg room. ..."
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: "Friendliness and courtesy of crew, modern plane and good food. Well definitively fly EVA more!"
Cons: "In my Emergency seat position, whenever someone opened the washroom door, the washroom light would wake me as the light would shine in my eyes. Maybe offering eye cover for extended seat position would help."
Pros: "the food on eva was better than delta and united--definitely edible unlike the others. the stewardesses are a little bit stingy with the wine. they give such tiny tiny portions-like 2 ounces at a time--they said i might get drunk. no one can get drunk with what they give. the stewardesses are polite enough. the entertainment was pretty good--good choice of movies. like all other airlines, the seats are too squished together. more room would have been appreciated."
Cons: "i answered this already"
Pros: "terrible boarding crew"
Pros: "Seat, service and food were excellent"
Cons: "No negatives on this flight"
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: "Food is great, with good selection between chinese or western meals. It was nice to have the menus printed. Flight attendants were very courteous and friendly"
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: "Like most were the friendly and professional crew, nice big screen individual entertainment system with many movies, clean bathrooms, and my seafood meal was awesome!"
Cons: "Didn't like that we departed almost an hour late for no apparent reason - something about waiting for luggage to be loaded. The side dishes on the entree could be better."
