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: "The experience was really good. I’ll be using JAL again."
Cons: "Keep doing a good job."
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: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "It’s 14h flight. I wanted more water. I had to keep asking but the size was too small... I didn’t want orange or apple juice...."
Cons: "Everything. I will fly out from Narita from this point forward."
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: "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: "Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."
Pros: "I liked everything with JAL. Seats are comfortable, good food, excellent service."
Cons: "The crew of ANA was incredible. I think it is my best flying experience to Asia"
Pros: "Some of your reservations staff in Los Angeles needs to be counseled"
Cons: "Been more polite especially mike in your mileage program."
Pros: "Excellent service from the cabin crew."
Cons: "The Japanese (Washoku) breakfast was not as good as I expected."
Pros: "Meal, crew"
Cons: "1. inside temperature was so cold -especially at the 3rd route from la to tokyo -. 2. Economy seats are not declined, which means less pereonal space. 3. The worst is in-flight entertainment system, UI is so poorly developed, most contents do not provide english subtitles."
Pros: "They were very helpful in changing my seat to an aisle seat. The first meal was rather mediocre. The second one was good. The seats were spacious and comfortable and I did not feel claustrophobic."
Cons: "They were very helpful in changing my seat to an aisle seat. The first meal was rather mediocre. The second one was good. The seats were spacious and comfortable and I did not feel claustrophobic."
Pros: "I liked the midnight flight out of LAX; got to sleep at a normal time and arrived in Japan in the morning ready to go"
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: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."
Cons: "Unfortunately, premium economy is the only way to go, because economy class seats are very cramped and "locked" in the upright position (for a 10+ hour flight), and it's a bit pricey."
Pros: "Everything about this airline made my flight pleasant. The staff were polite and accommodating"
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth. Stewardesses were very helpful."
Food for a five hour flight had to be ordered ahead-not ideal for customer especially the choices on menu! I appreciated the seating for handicapped individuals!
Pros: "The pilot went around to passengers and apologized foe delay."
Cons: "3 plus hours of delay????"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t particularly outstanding, they did a fine job. Not proactive at all. Pleasant when asked."
Pros: "Boarding was unsatisfactory. I and my family were the initial few people who boarded the flight. We were asked to check in the bag saying the bag was little big while many people who boarded after us had bigger bags. We had a carry on roller bag, small carryon bag and a back pack for the 5 people from the family and we were asked to check in the bag. While people who had 2 bags per person with the carry on roller bags bigger than ours was allowed to carry the bags inside."
Cons: "Boarding experience could have been better"
Pros: "Cool to get bonus points for the trip"
Cons: "Would have been nice if flight attendants walked the aisle regularly during the red eye flight, I was very thirsty and in a window seat with 2 sleeping people..."
Pros: "Good crew, did a good job making us feel good for a delayed late night flight."
Cons: "For some reason air was never turned on. Air only seemed to flow once we were moving but sitting at the gate and once back on the ground taxing it got very hot again."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable and they provided free movies with a seat console for a 2-hour flight. Great!"
Cons: "They shouldn’t charge for snacks and offer some form of entertainment in an almost 6 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and smooth red-eye transcontinental flight."
Cons: "If there weren't a 15-minute delay due to maintenance."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for a red eye to Newark. Guest services was nice enough to give us meal vouchers because they couldn’t rebook us on another flight."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed. Intercom system announcements could be better."
Pros: "They held the connection to Maui for us even though we were an hour late. Much appreciated! The flight attendants were super!"
Cons: "Nothing; all good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were late leaving the gate in LA. Now we have been sitting on the plane for 45 minutes waiting for our gate in Honolulu."
Cons: "Just a few too many announcements and adverts, a bit noisy. But wonderful food and bev service and timely, comfortable flights."
Pros: "An entirely unexceptional airline that provides zero amenities for such a long flight."
Cons: "Charge me $20 more a seat and provide a meal and in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight included snacks and breakfast. Towards the end of the flight we were surprised by complimentary rum punch drink"
Pros: "The flight was smooth considering the weather. The crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "I wish I was able to hang my wedding dress in a closet rather than folding it up and putting it in the overhead storage."
Pros: "The crew was very good and met all our needs."
Cons: "Free entertainment from LA to Honolulu."
Pros: "No line to check out bags, hassle free to board, easy to find out seats, friendly staff. LOVE the USB charger in the seats and the complimentary “rum punch”!"
Cons: "Cabin could have been a degree or two warmer, it was very chilly. Seats in general cabin were very close together and we couldn’t get out of the seat when the seat was declined in front of us...we’re average sized humans and were pretty scrunched."
Cons: "Every other flight I have been on does not make you pay for entertainment, headphones, or blankets. I will not fly Hawaiian again."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and they try to give you a “Hawaiian” feel. They leave you alone and serve you without being intrusive."
Cons: "No closed captions for movies or tv or videos. Seat was very uncomfortable. Seat mates screen didn’t turn off so it was bright for her the whole trip."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plenty of legroom"
Cons: "The time to get the luggage to baggage claim was way longer than expected."
Pros: "Seat comfort is better than many airlines but I still felt boxed in."
Cons: "Flight crew was mediocre at best. Very abrupt and snippy when offering drinks and snacks. Flight attendant who gave disembarking instructions had difficulty with language and stuttered and stumbled with words."
Cons: "Two very sick people were allowed to fly and were not denied boarding during these times of Covid19. We actually had to taxi back to terminal to remove a very sick passenger. JetBlue #100 March 17, 2020 10:12 pm from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale."
Cons: "Despite the delay of almost 3 hours (which we were informed much earlier than getting to the airport at) the plane was 40% empty so can’t complain at the end of the day"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and the leg room makes a difference."
Cons: "My entertainment system wasn't working. Kept freezing and restarting. I was allowed ton switch seats, but the same thing happened on the others I tried."
Cons: "Flight turned around halfway and returned to origin airport. A full explanation was never given."
Pros: "Good legroom in economy. Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Multiple snack choices."
Cons: "More LA SF Bay Area flight options."
Cons: "We waited in the runway for 2 hours after landing. Not the airlines fault however completely unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew was on it and friendly. Nice drink and snack service. Very comfortable."
