Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The trip was excellent because first of all, I was the one who booked it. Secondly, I selected all the aisle seats. The airline isnine of the best with friendly and courteous crew."
Cons: "The USB port on my seat to charge my cell phone was broken. And the airplane gets warmer in the duration of the flight. The crew should always make sure that the air conditioning's thermostat is in the coller setting."
Cons: "My seat was broken and uncomfortable. 13 hour flight and you can’t lean back one bit"
Pros: "The cabin crew are the most professional and beautiful in the airline business."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed over 4 hours, added to the 7 hour layover that had, made the trip very long. I would of liked at least a voucher for a hotel to sleep, because lounge chairs are not very comfortable."
Pros: "best airline ever"
Cons: "The website did not let me choose the seat when I tried to check-in. In addition, the flight attendant was not welcoming because she kept saying that you cannot have more food :("
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and professional. Made us feel very welcomed. Everything went smoothly from the beginning. From ticketing agents through the baggage claims. No problems locating our luggage. Everything was efficient. Will travel again with them when I go back."
Pros: "Good service. The food was good, better than most airlines that I've flown with. The seat was comfortable with good leg room. Good documentary films."
Cons: "There wad a7 hour delay in Korea and the staff at the airport were not helpful. I asked them if I was in the right place for my connecting flight and all they said was come back in 1 hour. I came back 1 hour later and asked if I'm still in the right place sand when my flight would be boarding. They again said come back in 1 hour. This went on for 7 hours and they never made Amy announcements to inform anyone of when the flights would finally board."
Cons: "Horrible delayed and no food offer or available even to purchase!"
Pros: "I love it."
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Was very far but the crew was very helpful and attentive all the way here. We had an infant with us and the crew did everything to make him comfortable when he was fuzzy."
Pros: "The staff is friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There wasnt anything i didnt like for this flight"
Pros: "I am big person, and being able to cross my legs even in economy seats is a real relief. Good selection of Hollywood and Asian films was enjoyable. I liked that our flight data was always viewable in a variety of formats."
Cons: "the cabin temperature was a little hot. The staff tunred it down after i asked, but even then it was still a bit warm for me. People who are cold can put on blankets or jackets, but people who are hot can't remove clothing, so i think a lower standard temperature setting would be nice."
Pros: "The service and entertainment"
Cons: "Sitting down 12 hrs it was very painful to be sitting that long. My seat eould heat up and it was uncomfortable also. I couldn't sleep during the flight"
Pros: "For some reason the crew seemed more attentive and maybe fresher coming back from ICN than going to ICN"
Cons: "The only problem was the long layover"
Pros: "the flight attendants were great and it flight was smooth."
Cons: "long flight"

Cons: "I don't like their policy of closing all the blinds when it is daylight outside."
Pros: "Good more choices"
Cons: "Transit in Korea make shorter hour"
Pros: "I have flown many times with many airlines, and I must say that Korean Air is by far THE BEST. From staff to food to entertainment. They crew will go out of there way to do what they can to ensure you have a comfortable and good experience. I will DEFINITELY fly with them again. Kayak was very user friendly also."
Cons: "The flight was very lomg, but nothing could be done to remedy that."
Pros: "Light flight, extra space."
Cons: "One of the luggage wheels is broken. No ground personal in the airport to take care of the matter. Called and eMailed the claim. However, KAL refuses to look into the matter."
Pros: "Awesome trip"
Cons: "No complain. The crew did great service."
Pros: "Incheon airport was really nice for the layover. Korean Air staff are top notch."
Cons: "Cabin was a little warm the whole time. No individual air controls on this particular plane."
Pros: "A380 is great plane (this coming from a real Boeing enthusiast). Very Quiet! Coach had more leg room than I expected, especially for a non-US carrier. Good service and great inflight entertainment. The airline is not a US domestic carrier so flight staff might not understand every English word of a request but they try very hard. Most US carriers would not try as hard if I were speaking Korean! The whole world does not speak your language and remember that coach is coach for a reason $$$. Customs procedures are out of the control of carriers so comments about that."
Cons: "No individual control for air vent and it was a bit warm for me but most people were comfortable."
Pros: "Cabin crews are very kind."
Cons: "Since long flights with reduced body movement tend to create constipation, would be good to increase vegetables, reduce other stuff."
Pros: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Staff great"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were professional in appearance and behavior. They cleaned the restrooms after each client left the restroom."
Cons: "I was coming from a very cold climate and had on long underwear under my street clothes. So unfortunately, it seemed that the blankets were "too" warm on the plane."
Pros: "The stewardesses are very good and attentive."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "I really liked the prices of the tickets for this trip, I saved money over the regular price plane tickets; since I had 2 long layovers in Seoul at Inchoen Airport. I love this airport, it is clean, modern and offers so much amenities for FREE. The best for my second time LONG Lay over. My firtst time was at an airport in Alaska which I completely forgot since it was nearly 30 years ago. The flying experience was totally good from flying from BKK as it was also a good airport. I also liked the services, the crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flights were full and of course I had a seat in seat 32E next to a man who was ofviously either sick or had a bad allergy, he sneezed and sneezed 1/2 of the whole flight when he was awake and slept most of the time so it was difficult for me to get in and out to the rest room. Luckily the people in seats 32F & 32G were kind enough to let me in and out (I got out mostly while the lady in seat 32F was getting out of her seat.) Mostly the other experiences were good overall."
Pros: "The crew's professionalism and service. I wish Korean Air could provide training to the US based airlines! Well done!"
Cons: "The vegan meal was served twice during the flight. A bit more variety would have been nice. Qatar airways has a better variety of entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very anxious or something, controlling for no reason."
Cons: "Next time"
Pros: "The food was good, and there were enough different types of entertainment that made the long flight easy to get through. The crew members are also really nice. I also love that they give you slippers and a toothbrushort and paste. I also like the lotion that is provided in the bathroom!"
Cons: "The seats are small."
Pros: "It may be my imagination, but I feel like the seats on this Korean Air Flight lean back more and have more leg room that flights I've been on in the past. Also the crew was so kind, even when dealing with tired, grumpy passengers."
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: "Generally, i liked the flight. We were granted our request for a change in seats when i found out that me and my husband were not seated side by side."
Cons: "The entertainment has limited choice of movies."
Pros: "Leg room was more than most economy; however, my seat would not lay down and it was miserable for 11 hr ride from Korea to Los Angeles, California."
Cons: "Seat would not lay down for 11 hours."
Pros: "The incheon airport efficiency, the food Inboard, the transit was food."
Cons: "No snacks like ice cream or snacks. Crew was not as sensitive and attractive to passengers."
Pros: "Bathriom cleanliness and the good work of the stewardesses"
Pros: "Friendly crew and the airport in Incheon. Though our layover took 15 hours, I was able to rest in their lounge on second floor and able to took a nice shower too. I will fly Korwan Air again. Only one thing, please improve the quality of food, other than than that it was excellent experience!"
Cons: "The food needs to be improved."

JAL is one of the most professional & efficient airlines I’ve experienced. The food was very good: even in Economy! The entertainment interface needs some updating.

No problem at all. I like it the way it is now. The reason I always choose Japanese airlines because the attendance crew. They are awesome

Never even got on the plane . Kayak and Japan airline poor customer service . Had boarding issues due to a layover restriction in Japan. Was notified less the 24hrs prior to departure time … worst worst

Like Japan Airiline food good flight attendants the best take good care of customer

The JAL staff were all great at SFO and Haneda. I highly recommend JAL. I know I will be looking out for future flights with JAL. The food was very good as well as the snacks they prepared. Entertainment ok, the movie selection was ok. If JAL could add usbc charging that would be great. Also Bluetooth connectivity to the entertainment system would awesome. The headset connectivity was not great. High pitched noise came out if the headset. I did have trouble contacting JAL support while in Japan. I needed information about Covid testing for my return to the US. Basically no one picked up the phone. I ended up paying a lot of money for Covid testing when I could have paid less if I could have confirmed some information over the phone. Hopefully the US stops requiring Covid testing for entering the US or cheaper options become available. $160 x 4 was no fun!!

Same as above

See above.

The crew at the check-in counter was super-helpful and exceptionally kind.

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: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."
Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"
Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."
Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"
Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."
Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."
Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"
Pros: "This airline is efficient, polite, and has a great business class product. Seats are large and open. Easy to move into different positions. Tv is in readable large and clear with a mini screen in the remote. The food was outstanding. Waygu beef medium rare. Washrooms are the cleanest in the sky. Definite repeat!"
Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."
Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"
Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"
Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"
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!"
Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"
Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "Clean :)"
Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."
Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."
Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Cons: "Food is not that good"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "Very clean. They check the bathroom pretty often un-like AA. Good food."
Cons: "I always prefer this airlines."
Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"
Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."
Pros: "JAL crew member were very nice and food were awesome!! But I was very scared this time, because airplane was shaking for long time..."
Cons: "Mid night snack can be improved, it’s too small a portion."
Pros: "Very caring, and pay full attention to passengers."
Cons: "Better food quality, more movies please."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, attentive crew; good amount of storage in business class; very good food with an excellent variety."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"
Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"
Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Pros: "Flight attendants were incredible!"
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "Their service"
Cons: "Foods"
Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"
Cons: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "very clean over a 9 hr flight , great seat and flight attendant"
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
Pros: "Staff is awesome"

Pros: "Been flying with ANA ever since I started living in Japan, and it has always been a pleasure. No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The "meal" served about 1.5 hours after takeoff was just a very light snack. Nothing substantial. Could have been more food."
Cons: "cancelled, hard to rebook flight, staff unhelpful, rebooked on worse flight. very bad experience."
Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality and attention to detail."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."

Pros: "The service was excellent"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."

Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."

I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"
Pros: "The service is exceptional!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent and the premium economy seat was very comfortable and accommodating. The choice of food from the variety menu was also delicious."
Pros: "Same as my trip to Japan. Crew was great, boarding was easy, seats were pretty comfortable, food was great, and entertainment awesome. Gave socks and toothbrush amenities, along with the normal pillow and blanket."
Cons: "It felt a tad bit hot in the plane. No personal vents to adjust to one's own desire."
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Pros: "everything good"
Cons: "need new toilet"
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"
Pros: "The plane had decent leg room, the food was great, service was excellent. I have no complaints. Snacks were handed out pretty regularly which was great. In flight entertainment was good too. I'll definitely fly Singapore again, I liked it better than other Asian airlines."
Pros: "My wife and I flew from Los Angeles to Seoul. The entire experience was incredible. From check in to disembarking, we were well taken care of. Gracious service and complimentary drinks throughout the flight with a full spectrum entertainment system!"
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Comfy chairs and good food on Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the male crew didn't do anything, the females did all the interactive work in serving and helping the disabled as far as I could see."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
Pros: "Some of the Korean food was tasty The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff, the food and overall the experience."
Cons: "That our bags weren't check in all the way to SEA"
Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Pros: "Both ways I had a whole row to myself, great attendants, in flight screens and charging stations at your seat, frequent meals"
Cons: "Clean bathroom trash more often"
Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Great food!!"
Pros: "The staff was amazing and attentive. My surfboards arrived safe and sound... And on time. I will most definitely fly Singapore Airlines again, as often as I can. Thank you."
Pros: "Service was outstanding. The staff was attentive and helpful from start to finish."
Cons: "Not all the food was to my personal taste. I understand however that being on a flight to and from Asia would lean toward choices more characteristic to the region."
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Nice flight with good crew service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Please notify customer full details of schedule and do not change the flight information last minutes."
Pros: "2 passengers seats Food Quick boarding Flight on time"
Pros: "Airline helped accommodate my seating request"
Cons: "They did not ask me if I want food during the 12 hour flight. They just pass by me and did not give me food. The flight attendant could not speak English so they could not explain when I complained."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Seat changes should not change before asking"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Amazing flight"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Food must have variety diversity"
Pros: "Check-in and boarding were convenient, overall in-flight experience was good and satisfying."
Cons: "Provide beverage/water more frequently during flight to keep passengers hydrated."
Pros: "excellent and very organized, quick and efficient"
Cons: "I wish they would have offered more water, it was a very long flight and the airport and buying water at the Taipei airport was not easy as it was far from terminal and the other choice was vending machine but you couldn't use a credit card or US currency,"
Pros: "Seat is very comfortable..."
Pros: "Boarding was really fast and smooth. I was section 5 and my first thought that it was going to take awhile to get to my section but I was in my seat in less than 15 minutes from the moment the doors were open. Very impressed."
Cons: "It can be hard to communicate to the crew, they do know English but it can be difficult when they are asking about what you want for dinner. I only had trouble 3 times on four of my international flights."
Cons: "One of my luggage was damaged when I was from LA to Taipei."
Pros: "Some were so nice with smiles all time"
Cons: "Some looked so cold that even wanna get you a tea and forget about it."
Cons: "The food doesn’t taste good"
Pros: "Hello Kitty theme plane"
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "We got the exit row seating and I didn't even care I was in the middle. The service was great and they will provide you will all the amenities. Overall great experience!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive and came around often with snacks and refreshments."
Cons: "Entertainment was a little lacking."
Pros: "High quality entertainment, service. And food."
Cons: "The fact that they are very far away from any terminal at LAX, mean did you checked in a bag, you will have to wait a long time. I waited 1 hr for my bag to come out to the baggage carasel"
Pros: "Fairly standard flight, appart from the negatives. The video screens were top notch and made a big difference."
Cons: "The crew were very negligent in providing any water. You could get a drink during meal service, but they didn't come back around a single time for the remaineder of the 11 hour flight. My wife and I went to the back of the plane a couple of times to retrieve our own water. You couldn't depend on asking them for water either, as on two occasions they completely forgot about us. Very frustrating experience."
Pros: "Great service, crew felt happy with their job"
Cons: "It was a really turbulent ride"
Cons: "I always say it's better to be too cold then too hot. Cold you can do something about. Put on a blanket or something. Hot your are screwed."
Cons: "我建議你們把所有用餐板中間的hinge tightened, 我回程坐在68D走廊位。當空姐把一杯柳橙汁端給我放在餐板上時,這杯果汁就因hinge鬆弛造成餐板傾斜而滑落。一杯果汁把我白色褲子全染黃。之後空姐有道歉並且拿一套貴賓艙的睡衣褲給我換。這件事不是空姐的錯,我没有責怪她,只想建議你們細察全艙所有的餐板。避免以後的旅客有同樣的意外發生。謝謝長榮航空給我有舒適的旅程!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment selection"
Cons: "It is not good service because they didn't have fast the declaration later"
Pros: "I would take EVA air again!"
Pros: "good flight crew fully reclining seats lots of movie choices free wine"
Cons: "arm rests didn't fold up"
Cons: "Staff are rude doesnt know the words please, excuse and thank you. I will not recommend this airlines to my family and friends."
Pros: "Everything except flight attendants walking too fast in the cabin"
Cons: "Flight attendants were walking too fast in the cabin. Sometimes right in front of my face while I was walking to the lavatory without warning. They just sneak and cut you off without saying excuse me, sorry, or simple letting me know they're passing through. I don't mind but I was afraid that I would crash into them and injure either of us."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The sauce was old and make me sick."
Pros: "The screen that everyone has in front of them is large and has a lot of entertainment options. Lots of leg room! I had an economy ticket and was pleasantly surprised by how much leg room you get. I appreciated the warm blanket, pillow, and slippers. There are eye masks and toothbrushes available in the restrooms."
Cons: "The food was OK, it wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't anything amazing. The staff was attentive and professional, but I don't know if it was just me, they seemed a bit "cold". No warm smiles. It's a small issue because they did a great job, no complaints with that."
Pros: "Great movie selections. Comfortable in my seat."
Cons: "Small glasses of wine. Bad food. When we landed, with the time difference it would've been 9 am, but they served us a dinner meal and it wasn't appealing."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Movie and TV selections were minimal compared to other airlines. After landing in LAX, took a very long time for checked baggage to appear, and I had another non-connected flight to catch."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Eva did not send an additional plane. They excepts hundreds of people to go on standby waitlists for their one flight a day option to Taipei. All of which were full flights. They did not provide food vouchers or hotel vouchers. We were told to leave the airport and come back tomorrow with no solution. We had to rush the office and force them to get us on on other airlines to finally get home. If that didn't happen we would have been stuck in the airport for 5 days."
Pros: "Smooth flight with little turbulence."
Pros: "The plane feels new and nice, crew was happy and nice. The spaghetti was surprisingly good."
Cons: "Sat in the front row by the emergency doors. One would think the more legroom was better but the tray table comes out of the armrest, which means the armrest can't be lifted. Also the tv sits very low and you end up looking down at it instead of straight ahead. If, like me, you like to be near a window or at least be able to sneak a peek out of someone else's this spot isn't good. There isn't a convenient window anywhere near."
Pros: "Large selection of free movies"
Pros: "Comfortable."
Cons: "Kids should be provided with kids meals and served ahead of other passengers if possible. More choices of food would be better."
Pros: "What caught my attention when we arrive at Taiwan Airport everything was extremely exceptionally clean and organize the bathroom you can practically sit on the floor in there that how clean it was."
Cons: "The long stand by time"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats small good vegetarian food not real great"
Pros: "Elite class is bigger space than usual flight Selection and choices of menu and drinks. Slippers extra tooth brush is nice touch."
Cons: "Ac was bit too warm. Not enough drink serves in between hours."
Pros: "Clean bathrooms. The bathrooms also had supply's to freshen up which was great, state side airlines miss out on this amenity."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The service that the crew provided was excellent. They were friendly and professional. The fight attendants were nonstop helping the passengers throughout the whole fight. My flight was on time and there was no delays. 10+ rating, I will fly EVA again soon. I'm already plaining my trip back to Asia in three months and I will be using EVA AIR. And yes, I will tell a friend to fly EVA AIR. FRED from California."
Cons: "Just the passengers boarding the plane crewed the main gate."
Cons: "Very clean toilets. Nothing I don't like."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The food was awful. Not enough liquids were offered. I would definitely bring my own water. Entertainment options were limited for English language speakers."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the schedule was pretty on point!"
Cons: "Too many overhead announcements!"
