Pros: "the selection of beverages and the crew are very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Selection of entertainment"
Pros: "Spacious leg room."

Cons: "angled flat seats."
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: "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 had a pleasant flight experience with JAL. Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "I was able to choose an aisle seat but it did not go through. I have to get to Narita to be able to get an aisle seat."
Pros: "Thier food tasted excellent!"
Cons: "Wish there was a vegetarian option too."
Pros: "I was randomly upgraded for the first 10 hours of my trip to Premium economy and it was amazing. Two big hot meals served throughout the flight and plenty of drink service. lots of leg room and could recline comfortably. Flight attendants were wonderful and very helpful. Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."
Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese meals"
Pros: "Very clean and modern aircraft. Staff were friendly and attentive. They provided directions and a guide for travelers transitioning from domestic to international flights. Strongly recommend Japan Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing, well done."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. However, it was a little too warm on the flight for our liking. Other than that, we had a great experience."
Pros: "I was very surprised Japan Airlines staffs welcomed at boarding gate in Chubu Centrair,Nagoya with friendly smiles, chocolate and a mask for the upcoming flight. Also very comfortable seat, friendly crews during flight. One of the best flight !"
Pros: "The airplane is clean, toilets are super nice! Service is very good, legroom is adequate. I like the rice dishes on board. Overall, excellent."
Pros: "The staff"
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: "Business class seat was good."
Cons: "Temperature was kept too hot to sleep comfortably. Service a little slow. It took almost 3 hours to finish the first meal."

Pros: "Always a good crew .. they go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable."
Pros: "The Japanese know how to service their customers, five stars all the way. The food and drinks (beer) helped too"
Cons: "The video monitor for viewing movies was dated."
Pros: "Courteous and helpful crew members and I liked the delicious meal served during our flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect! Thank you for a great experience!"
Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
Pros: "I liked that the flight attendants were attentive and gave us all refreshments in a timely manneR."
Cons: "The seats were small. But then again, I think that would have been a complaint for all airplanes."
Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "The seats were roomier than expected, the food was delicious and everyone was very professional and friendly. I picked up this flight because JAL is a partner for AA and I'm so glad I did. I will fly them again."
Pros: "flying JAL is always a pleasure. The flight attendants are consummately professional and the entertainment system is top notch"
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: "Best and consistent service."
Pros: "The cabin crew is very nice , pleasant & the captain did a great job!"
Cons: "Maybe a change in your food menu that you can include some continental items."
Pros: "Good solid flight on a relatively comfortable plane"
Cons: "Narita seems to have had delay problems as of late. What should have been a short flight was extended over 40 minutes on the runway. Not the airline's fault by any means, but I'd recommend looking for flights through Haneda if you're passing through Tokyo."
Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."
Pros: "I loved the service, the toothbrushes in the bathroom, the cleanliness of the bathroom throughout the flight, the snacks, and the kind flight attendants. This has been my best experience flying to the US from Asia! I would love to take Japan Airlines again as I was incredibly impressed by their services."
Cons: "The lack of quality movies and the way it was organized on the screen. They could organize movies and TV shows by categories instead of one big movie section."
Pros: "An airline that thinks about consumers and then delivers a premier experience. Fly no one else to or from Japan."
Pros: "The aircraft was a new 787 and very comfortable. Uneventful flight."
Cons: "Menu in business class."
Pros: "Everything !!!"
Cons: "Food was very bland"
Pros: "Great 12hr flight"
Cons: "Loved everything!!"
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "Loved the food"
Pros: "The crew was professional and super friendly."
Cons: "Our bags had arrived early, and were waiting at the service station. However, there was no one there in the rooms and our stuff was left outside the door. We have pictures of our bags left out. It’s kind of a bummer that our stuff was left unattended. Someone could of grabbed it."
Cons: "I was not aware that I flew in Narita and flew out of another airport."
Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."
Cons: "Food and entertainment could better"
Cons: "Old Aircraft Interior, could be more comfortable"
Cons: "We did not make this flight and had to take the train instead"
Pros: "Entertainment offerings were good."
Cons: "I booked the flight thinking it was with ANA , it was on United which is a full step below in quality. My bad!"
Cons: "Wheel chair transport requested did not come so I had to wait 15-20 min in Tokyo."
Pros: "japanese airlines food is always better than u.s. airlines. service is also very courteous."
Cons: "disliked their entertainment system. no varieties in movies, and interface was a bit annoying as you could not see a visual menu of all movies and had to keep scrolling line by line to get to the next movie."
Pros: "The staff of ANA are so friendly and accommodating. When checking in, the woman at the counter moved me to a window seat from the middle, free of charge. They were very patient and helpful."
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."
Pros: "Food was amazingly good!"
Cons: "Movie selection was limited"
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "The crew were helpful, attentive and nice. There were vacant seats so i was able to change to a more comfortable seat."
Cons: "The food was horrible. The selections for movies is quite limited."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating ... refreshing change."
Cons: "Hoping for different movies on the long flight back...and less R rated ones...some different games (like trivia) would have been nice."
Pros: "Staff and crew and food!"
Cons: "We could not check in online. This was frustrating and we do not know why?"
Pros: "Boarding priority with kids, food choices, flight attendant so nice ans caring, kids friendly and child meal is nice and tasty"
Cons: "Very limit kids entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "Nice smile and service. Food is good as well"
Cons: "Arrived later than schedule"
Cons: "First, I did an online check-in and was able to secure a seat for the first leg of the flight, but was able to get any information on my second leg. So when I arrived at the Thai Airways counter to load in my bags I asked the Thai Airways representative about the missing information. His response was that he could not get into the ANA system and that I have to go to the ANA counter to ask for that information. Given that my layover in Narita was only about 45mins landing to going to the gate, I was not comfortable with not knowing if I would be on that flight or not. The Thai Airways representation at the boarding counter did help me a bit and got in touch with a guide in Narita to help me get my luggages and get to gate properly. I wanted to note that we did not arrive in Narita on time due to the high air traffic so the plane had to circle around for 15 mins. When we finally landed I had about 15 mins to get through the custom and ran to my gate. When I received my ticket I was shocked that I got a middle seat on a 13 hours flight! If I have known this earlier I would have paid for a better seat, but since I was not able to check-in online and didn't receive any info about this flight prior to boarding I was not allowed to change on this full flight. In addition, the plane ride was awful. The food was disgusting and the seat was very uncomfortable. The seat did not even recline back! I don't expect much from a short distance flight but for a 13 hour long flight, I at least expect the seat to be slightly better than sitting on a rock against a brick wall. All in all, this was a HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE I went through. The stress and the discomfort on the plane was an experience that no one should ever feel while traveling. It was an awful nightmare on an ANA flight. I would like a refund on this flight with no exceptions. Sincerely, Jessica Saesue"
Pros: "The time is on time ."
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: "Very polite crew, service oriented and smiling, help whenever they can. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Food choices very limited, and quality is sub-par."
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"
Cons: "seat labeling not clear"
Pros: "Ground staff was very helpful, we had an overweight luggage and they kind out provided a complementary package box to redistribute the weight instead of charging us extra baggage fees. The flight attendants were caring and offered great service. The entretenimient system on board was easy to use and had a large library of movies."
Pros: "The flight attendants in the Economy Class did an excellent job throughout the flight."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like."
Pros: "Customer service and food!"
Pros: "I love this airline! The flight attendants are so polite and cute and the whole ride was a great experience."
Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and helpful. The seat is very comfy"
Pros: "flight attendants excellent"
Pros: "For such a long trip, it was pretty comfortable. The flight crew was friendly and helpful and the food was good"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Cons: "Delay too much time"
Cons: "Lounge is full and food in lounge not spectacular. Ground crew unfriendly"
Pros: "Service was nice way more room than American Delta or United for economy"
Pros: "Best leg space, new air crafts, kids gifts"
Cons: "Food choices are very average. Nothing for vegeterians if you do not order in advance. English language accouncements were not clear at all - not great for an international flight"
Pros: "The big screen Tvs"
Pros: "Great service, excellent and curteous. Clean cabin"
Cons: "Food can be improved, economy seats are tight. Movie selection not as vast as SQ and Cathay."
Pros: "As long as I didn't fly on united"
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that mostly everyone is bilingual there. It helped tremendously because I don't know Japanese."
Cons: "kayak should let you know when buying the ticket that the first portion of the flight codeshare with united express doesn't cover a second bag I called ANA they said i could bring two so I did but I was charged 100 dollars for it even though it was an international flight with ANA also united express shattered the outside of one of my checked bags so I paid 100 dollars to get a 50 dollar suitcase BROKEN UNITED won't respond to my inquiries. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"
Pros: "I liked the plane! Beautiful and new, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was a pleasure to ride in. Staff was as pleasant and helpful as they always are on ANA and despite the long delay due to an engine repair, the ANA staff conducted themselves incredibly professionally."
Cons: "It wasn't such a bad experience for me but the plane did have a mechanical failure and the part was not in stock in Cambodia so had to be flown in. That resulted in a 24 hour delay. The ANA staff were excellent and did take care of us well."
Pros: "I like the whole experience overall I would definitely Fly ANA again"
Cons: "I like the whole experience overall"
Pros: "The service crew are excellent and very polite. Definitely like the new window feature."
Pros: "My son can not eat peanuts, I am so happy you offer the peanut free meals. And ANA always have good sevice."
Pros: "I really like the technology in the plain and all of service , crew are so nice everyone had a real smile"
Cons: "Space of the seat are too tiny also a place to have some food"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the staff. The overall service was very nice!!"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all. Normally I wouldn't care but it was a 12 1/2 hour trip. There wasn't a lot of good, recent movie releases. On other airlines there was more to choose from that were more recent releases. The food wasn't very good. It had all fish choices or beef tongue. I understand having an Asian meal, but maybe should be a more popular meal with different choices than a more eclectic menu. I noticed even the child's meal was not very kid friendly."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Aircraft was clean and tidy."
Cons: "Food was poor, there was no space, even domestic flights have more space than this one.!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service"
Pros: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Pros: "Great crew, spacing of passengers, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."
Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"
Pros: "Free rebooking"
Pros: "We were delayed a bit out of Shanghai but still arrived in Los Angeles on-time (very slightly early) which was nice. well done."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing, with staff members holding signs creating arbitrary waiting areas for each of the boarding zones. If this is the boarding process, maybe something more structured can be implemented, otherwise people just end up everywhere. The seat back entertainment on this 777-200 suffered from the most capricious touch-screens ever. I would frequently tap a control on the screen only to have a control at the far corner of the screen be "pressed" instead. Annoying."
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "The landing experience."
Cons: "The organization of serving meals."
Pros: "Boarding was not a problem at all! ."
Cons: "The pilot was very rough maneuvering the aircraft. Starting from take off the pilot took off from a halt and accelerated so fast that I believe takeoff took 3sec or less. Also taxi into the airport about to land His maneuvering was Preety rough compared to the other two delta pilots that were perfect. There wasnt any food offered."
Cons: "Very long delay leaving Shanghai. Was 90 minutes late arriving in Tokyo, so I didn't have time to run into Narita town for some real food as I had been planning."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."
Pros: "Kind and attentive crew, surprisingly comfortable seats with more legroom than I expected, even in basic economy, a ton of overhead storage."
Pros: "Good. Thanks."
Pros: "The facilities were really great!"
Cons: "The food - it was in VERY small quantity"
Pros: "the service with lufthansa is great. I always enjoy my flight with lufthansa"
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "The tightness of the seat arrangement when the row ahead reclined is extremely awkward. We are not large people but getting over the aisle armrest was very difficult to maneuver to avoid injury (falling). The security in Munich was upsetting in that one man yelled at me , "Get it out! Get it out! Get it out! because I put my electronics in one of the bins before my husband. I was confused as to what I had supposedly done and I said, "This is my husband" (who was removing his shoes) and this man's reply was "I didn't know that". We were not trying to cause trouble and we cannot understand why he had to yell."
Pros: "Excellent service as you would expect from Lufthansa. Seating comfortable as well."
Cons: "No ice cream - they have switched to pizza or hot dog before you land."
Pros: "the flight crew were quick and responsive for any requests and polite. seems like understandable."
Cons: "flight being delayed in taking off but the it arrived on time as the time is covered it up during flight."
Pros: "flights were on time"
Cons: "food quality can be improved"
Pros: "On time - although a long flight I didn’t see the time go by"
Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."
Pros: "We enjoyed everything about our Lufthansa experience. Crew and flight attendants were very kind and attentive throughout the entire flight. On both of our international flights my wife and I had 4 seats to ourselves, which allowed us to stretch out much more comfortably. Flights were on time, landings smooth, online entertainment worked great, food was delicious, and the service outstanding."
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient and professional crew"
Pros: "Service, food, on time, everything that counts was in place."
Cons: "Departure time go to plane was worst because there were not jetway. So people were with carry on to downstairs to reach the plane was very difficult and more difficult for with the baby passengers , elder lady, ...."
Pros: "Service was outstanding. Very polite and prompt."
Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."
Pros: "Very courteous service, clearly a step above other airlines"
Pros: "I like flying with Lufthansa. It is one of the best airlines to fly with but a bit pricey."
Cons: "The food was not good at all. For a flight that cost so much, the food could be better."
Pros: "Borading Flights on time Crew Confort was just ok."
Cons: "Food. Very bad. Tasteless. And not much food provided. Emirates have more dishes and many servings. ENtertainment: Not many regiional movies. Overall movies are very few."
Pros: "Very organized"
Pros: "Everyone are friendly thank you"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Pros: "Very quiet flight, almost in time"
Cons: "I was ask to change seats twice so a family could sit together ( not a problem) but because of the change i was in row 41 and had no more selection on food (already by row 36 they only had pasta). Drinks were slow and we were almost done with lunch by the time the cart came."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "Flight on time, excellent crew and flight attendant, clean airplane, good entertainment,"
Cons: "Food was horrible, not enough water was offered to stay properly hydrated. check in; nitpicking weight of luggage. since we can only check one piece of luggage instead of two, please don't give me a hard time about 2 lbs extra."
Pros: "The crew was working hard, most were extremely nice and helpful. Their service was excellent. I enjoyed the food and drinks. The plane was clean and looked well-maintained. Most of the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight from Munich to Charlotte: I do not fly that frequently (just only about 1 or 2 times per year - usually with Lufthansa) so I had no idea that as an Economy class passenger I cannot use the Business class bathroom. I admit my mistake for violating this etiquette. There was no line formed so I just used it, but as I was leaving the toilet a stewardess grabbed my arm and sternly made me aware of my trespassing. She was very professional and I believe it was not her intention; however, she made me feel very stupid for not realizing that the Business class toiled is for the Business class customers only. Don't get me wrong, if I paid premium for my fare I would probably expect less crowded toilets too. In my opinion, this unwritten rule should be made more explicit to the Economy class passengers, as nobody likes to feel embarrassed by mistakenly wandering into an exclusive club they don't belong to. I know there are separating curtains, but they were open. I saw a line forming in the Economy section so my next instinct was to go a different direction, which led me to the Business section. I really needed to use the bathroom, so I did not think of the proper etiquette at the moment."
Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."
Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."
Pros: "This flight from Munich to Charlotte was operated by Lufthansa. To my surprise (and a little help from a friend) I was upgraded to business class. does not get much better than that !!"
Cons: "I had problem with my ears - they were stopped and were hurting me badly. I approached first stewardess, she was very unpleasant and she told me that I had to go to the back of the plane, the one in the back of the plane was unpleasant too, she told me she was out of nose drops, did not offer me any additional assistance and told me I better consider not traveling if I have ear problem. Very poor service."
Pros: "Once we connected, with the help of our escort, the flight was wonderful. I had an aisle seat due to the coach section and the very small leg room, but service, professionalism, comfort (aisle seat!) was perfect."
Cons: "More leg room in coach. If you are tall at all, it is really uncomfortable. I am 5'8' and, on the out trip to Germany from Charlotte, I almost lost it with the lack of leg room and claustrophobia......."
Cons: "I fly Lufthansa several times each year. This flight was the worst I can recall. My husband and I purchased exit row seats for additional leg room only to discover that an additional row was added in front of us for people with babies. We were squished behind them with very little leg room. We were surrounded by several babies, all of them crying constantly; this was totally ignored by both the parents and the crew. I was ready to start crying loudly myself, wondering if anyone would pay attention to that. We ordered special meals online but were served regular ones. When I told the attendant that we should be getting special meals, he peevishly and defensively said "you should have told me". These meals are normally served without any special prompts, so I have no idea why he was so angry with me! The crew practically hid from all the crying babies and was avoiding our section of the plane for around six hours. No water served, no one checking on anything. Lastly, my suitcase was cracked and needs to be discarded. altogether: a horror."
Pros: "Very professional, attentive, friendly flight attendants, clean aircraft (even the restrooms), surprisingly good food. I appreciate the complimentary wine, beer and after meal cordials. Boarding was quick, easy and on time."
Cons: "Economy seat room feels even smaller which, I guess, is to be expected. My husband is 6'2' and his knees touched the seat in front of him. When the person in front leans their seat back it is very claustrophobic. Over all an excellent flight though."
Pros: "Well organized and in time"
Pros: "Loved the personal TV screen, meals, friendly service, competitive pricing, arriving even earlier than scheduled, on time departures."
Cons: "I wished the blankets were warmer. Maybe a fleece. I was cold part way through the flight, even with the blanket provided."
Pros: "Again the friendly crew."
Cons: "The snack at dinner. A simple sandwich would be better instead of the heated pizza and large sandwich they did give."
Pros: "Flight was only about 60% full. Wine was offered with each beverage pass....also cognac offered after dinner. Plane was newer,comfortable. Lots of legroom in our "more legroom" upgraded seat. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Goulash meal meat was gristle and inedible. Other food was O.K."
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Pros: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Pros: "Service, timeliness and new aircraft"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was impressive."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was uncomfortanly warm. the Airbus planes do not have individual air jets at each seat which is a desirable feature. Therefore, the environment felt stuffy. It would also have been nice to have refills on coffe and hot tea, however, no one checked back with us after round one. The bathroom floor should also have been cleaned more frequently."
Pros: "Every trip i took was the same. Just wonderful. They even gave me a free pen to fill out my paperwork."
Pros: "Premium economy seats, also premium economy is located very well in front of the plane."
Cons: "Food quality was aweful. Not sure why Lufthansa can't train the catering in Shanghai better. Worst vegetarian food ever."
Pros: "Very good staff and service"
Pros: "On time and highly efficient as you would expect from the Germans. Airplane was clean and nice. Airport and boarding was very good too."
Cons: "Food left much to be desired but not horrible. They said they were short on crew staff (weird - first time I've heard of it) so service was a little slower than usual but not bad. Seats continue to get smaller and thinner which means less comfort for such a long haul flight. The seating arrangement is probably worst at this airline. I booked our seats and paid extra ahead of time, come to find out they changed the seat configuration and our seats sucked so we paid extra for nothing. Lufthansa really needs to fix the seat selection situation."
Pros: "Crew were polite"
Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The flight attendants never even asked us if we wanted anything to drink- never! Not even water. They were just too busy serving those who were buying food and drinks on board. For a 4-hour flight?!!! Simply unacceptable."
Cons: "Honestly nothing needed improvement/ it was a really good experience!"
Pros: "Breakfast was great, quick loading , great staff ,leg room was much better for my 6’1” husband with a knee replacement."
Cons: "Due to my husband’s knee replacement, he is always taken to another area to be searched and checked while his wallet and all of his valuables ate left on the conveyer belt unattended and could be stolen by anyone. I grabbed his stuff but they didn’t know who I was. They need a more secure policy."
Cons: "It was an older plane with no frills. No power cords, tv monitors. The seats were old and didn’t function properly"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accomodating but we received wrong information about our rebooking arrangemenets. Because we missed our connecting flight we had to spend 1 night in London without our bags and belongins for a change of clothes. We were given some toiletries and t-shirt and dinner."
Cons: "We were told to pick up our luggage at the carousel but in fact, our luggage was placed in storage, near the terminal we would fly out of the next morning. We waited a long time to pick up luggage that never came out because of lack of communication."
Pros: "The seats were nice and roomy and there was a great entertainment system. The flight was on a American Airlines 777."
Cons: "Very Little"
Cons: "For a first class flight, I think they gotta change everything. Concorde lounge in london outdated, bad food, no snacks.. on board monitor was so low in resolution that watching was a pain and movies with subtitles impossible to watch. Compared to LH Air France or any Asien Avery bad"
Cons: "Crew were super grouchy, and we sat on the runway for an hour, had to go back for more fuel. Pilots never updated us and crew were rude."
Cons: "Late getting off."
Pros: "It left when I needed it to"
Cons: "Price. Crazy business fare for a very tight uncomfortable coach seat. No entertainment. Food was pretty awful."
Pros: "See above, ditto."
Pros: "Premium Economy seating is very comfortable and the cabin service was excellent."
Cons: "Despite the long layover, they managed to misplace one or bags at Heathrow."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "The aeroplanes. Ran out of water shortly after takeoff. So no coffee or tea."
Cons: "Plane smelled bad. Had to pay for food. Not even water was included. Inside the plane is worn and needs upgrades."
Pros: "Nice crew Good food Good landing and no uncomfortable turbulence"
Cons: "Personal tv didnt work for majority of flight and when it did there was no audio (update technology ASAP)"
Pros: "Boarding efficient, take off on time, flight smooth, crew professional."
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "20 minutes "to reposition the gate to make it safer for exitong the airplane" - sounds like nonsense to me. No meal - and that really is nonsense."
Pros: "staff very considerate, decent food with several snacks in-between, would fly them again readily"
Pros: "Flight left on time, plane was clean, entertainment options were good and flight attendants were cordial."
Cons: "Food was marginal- avoid the chicken curry."
Pros: "- cabin staff were attentive and well trained"
Cons: "- entertainment system was tired and out of date even for economy class - seats cramped and uncomfortable especially when seat in front was reclined"
Cons: "Seat space too cramped"
Pros: "Food, ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4hrs after a 5hr layover. Passengers where shifted from a warm departure area to a very cold area to wait for transportation to the plane. Overall confusion of the staff. The pane, a 747 seemed to be an earlier model plane that needed to be updated."
Cons: "Cancelled for no reason"
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service was superb! Very easy to overlook how late the flight was. I appreciated the blanket and other items provided!"
Cons: "After a week, I still do not have my luggage. This is due to the flight being delayed 2 hours and I do not know why it was delayed. Because it was delayed, I missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight was okay. Did not get my bag after landing at Mumbai airport. Have to wait 24 hours to get it. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time. Good flying the 777. Lots of open seats in a not so full flight. The food was good for economy class and the flight attendants very attentive and looking for ways to serve."
Cons: "The arm rests of the seating would not fold all the way up to allow me to spread to the 2 empty seats next to me. I laid across all 3 seats and tried to sleep, however had the armrest jammed into my back and legs. Also, it took too long for the cabin crew to get the passengers convinced to close the window shades, so the cabin was brightly lit for the entire flight."
Cons: "Everything... including from London to Venice I need check my small luggage and they broke all . The small and the big one how I can be reimbursed for the damages? I need throw in the garbage both luggage’s now..I am really mad about it."
Pros: "British Airways is what flying used to be. They are on time, polite, have great service, food and entertainment. The blankets, pillows and headphones are finished free of charge as are the meals that I thought were good. The personal entertainment systems include something for everyone. I highly recommend British Airways."
Cons: "Londoners operate at cooler temperatures than us Florida residents and I was freezing in a sweater and blankets on the flight from London to Tampa. The cabin could have been warmed up a bit."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."
Cons: "Gate not given until last minute. The most cramped plane I have ever been on and I’m petite. No complimentary anything."
Cons: "No hay entretenimiento"
Cons: "Hard to love a flight when they lose your bag."
Pros: "Everything! Best airline ever."
Pros: "All but one of the FAs were amazing. Very kind and patient with the kids on the plane. The plane was also very quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The food was super greasy and not good. My daughter wouldn't even eat her Mac and cheese. The overhead voice is very quiet and hard to hear. I didn't hear most of anything that was said other than the safety briefing."
Cons: "Even though it was Finnair it was quite difficult to get my boarding passes and was unable to choose the seats on my long flight. I had to get my boarding passes through American Airlines and then flew through British Airways. It would have been very frustrating/difficult to a new traveler. The flights themselves were very good, they were accommodating and was able to move my seat for me in JFK, the flight with British Airways was good."
Cons: "It was horrible I had an hour window in London and I missed my flight because of that I had to go another airport to cache a fligh to Kiev Well now I don't have a ticket to fly back because they cancelled my ticket so needless to say it was the worst experience ever"
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Pros: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Seats are pretty small"
Pros: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Cons: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"
Cons: "we're professional musicians who fly all the time with fragile equipment. the airline applied an overweight baggage fee (fair enough, normally) but their payment system was down. rather than waive the fee, we were made to wait an hour to pay 150 euros. after scrambling through security we narrowly missed our flight. rebooking took hours and involved going back through security all over again, having our equipment searched for the second time. when it came time to gate-check our guitars, the airline lost them. we wound up boarding our connection to JFK with no idea where they were. finally they turned up on the baggage belt. we would never and have never agreed to send these delicate items through general baggage. One guitar (50 year old gintage guitar) was broken in the process and another of our hard cases was damaged and needs to be replaced. Completely unacceptable from start to finish."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled because I missed the first half of a round-trip flight, even though I phoned several times to explain that I still wanted to use the return trip. This practice seems almost criminal. I paid for the flight, I should have been able to use it."
Pros: "First time I enjoy flying , everything was very good"
Pros: "Not a darn thing."
Cons: "The flights at Heathrow had been delayed all day, according to the pilot from Paris to London. Well all except the connection that I missed due to a lot of slow moving people and delayed take off. So I was directed to stand in the rebooking line to get on another flight. I stood in that line for over 6 hours! Once i finally reached the counter, I was told the next available flight wasnt until the next day, and that I would be put up in a hotel for the night. The hotel was an hour bus ride away (which I had to pay for), and my arrival at the Hotel was too late for me to use my meal voucher for dinner. There were many other issues as well regarding misplaced baggage, trying to charge me twice for my extra bag, along with several efficiency muckups causing insufferable delays. What a disaster"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Seats too close when tryin to get in. And out to the bathroom"
Pros: "As a first time flight using BA, I was very impressed, and felt I received good value for money."
Cons: "I did not like the policy of paying to assign yourself a seat ($51 per seat) unless you do it online 24 hours prior to your flight - which I chose to do. I understand in the current business climate of paying for better seats, but nickle and diming plain Jane economy seats is unacceptable."
