Cons: "On Feb.16, 2018 JL745 Narita to Mnl, flight was delayed, though it was constantly announced but not the reason why. Other than that, I will always fly JAL whenever possible."

Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Using two doors and a twin aisle plane made boarding very efficient despite the size of the plane and the number of people. Free WiFi worked surprisingly well - I was able to make a video call to my family. The plane was clean and tidy . Not really much more to say as it was a very short flight."

Pros: "Very spacious and comfortable, modern plane"

Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."

Pros: "Good flight! Confirtable seats, polite crew."

Pros: "excellent seat space and excellent in-flight service."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Can't say because I was satisfied w/ my flight"

Pros: "The airplane was quite and clean and the crew were helpful"
Cons: "Some items were not new and not in a good shape like the headphones and the pillows. The crew didn't pickup the plates after we finished our meal"

Pros: "You guys couldn't be any more polite, attentive, courteous. There wasn't a moment during the flight that one of the flight crew was near in case you need something. Definitely best experience in an airline Thanks a thousand"

Pros: "Excellent service--excellent food (ice cream included in coach)."
Cons: "Loved everything."

Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"

Pros: "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
Cons: "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive cabin crew. They were all very helpful and came by repeatedly to ask if we need anything throughout the flight."
Cons: "Nothing really not to like."

Pros: "Staff was nice and got me a bulk head seat as I am very tall. This meant a lot to me. Thanks!"

Cons: "Excellent service and experience and the reason I always fly United!"

Pros: "Crew was great. Flights were smooth. Good beverages and snacks."
Cons: "The seats have no leg space."

Pros: "Cr"
Cons: "Had to wait on the runway for one hour to get a gate upon arrival. Should not have departed early and told passengers that there would be a gate available, only to have to wait and circle around several times waiting for a gate."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Gate attendants"

Pros: "I sat on the aisle. There is no room especially if you put your bag under the seat in front of you. I got hit 2x as the flight attendants moved the cart down the aisle. You can't lean back. I was fortunate to be able to place my coat in the overhead bin which is usually overcrowded."
Cons: "If the baggsge fee was less onerous more people would check bags and make boarding and deplaning faster. For God's sake give people more room between seats. Board people in the back first to spee the process. First window and aisles last. This would improve on time departures."

Pros: "the flight attendant was a little snippy with a couple of the passengers"
Cons: "need to change up the snacks a bit. Maybe offer 2 options? And they are so tiny"

Pros: "This was a horrible experience from the onsite until the landing."
Cons: "Better communication from the beginning and feedback about what was actually going on would have been helpful."

Cons: "Couldn’t control the temperature. It was freezing then burning up."

Cons: "Delays, seat assignment changed, the food"

Pros: "Sidney was extra kind and thoughtful. Pilot made a great landing."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfortable."

Pros: "Liked that it wasn’t the smallest regional jet that flies to Springfield"
Cons: "There was a delay because inbound plane was late. Didn’t like that jetway was very cold when we were waiting for our gate checked luggage. My gloves and hat were in the gate checked luggage."

Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Not enough options for people with celiac."

Pros: "Quick and departure on time"

Pros: "Captain came out and talked with us"
Cons: "Delay seemed very avoidable."

Cons: "1.5 hr delay on Tarmac"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Boarding group approach caused confusion due to lack of line indicators (too short); in-flight WiFi kept dropping every 60 seconds, making movie watching impossible"

Pros: "On time and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Really old plane, was freezing during the whole flight."

Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "Everything was as expected from United."

Cons: "We didn't have seats assigned and the gate attendent didn't take the time to tell any of the 20 of us waiting for 15-20 mins to speak to a gate agent what was going on until AFTER she boarded the rest of the plane. When asked what was going on she responded "excuse me, I'll get to you when I get to you and thanks for your 'non attitude'" to the woman who asked her if she had any plans to greet us or even ackwnowledge us. Then the flight attendants became flustered as they realized they separated a 5 year old child and his father and sat the child in the emergency seat. When several of us attempted to help they were rude so when I put my headphones in to pass the time and didn't hear the woman ask if I was willing to sit in the emergency isle she snidely said "there's always one millenial not paying attention." Ummm.... I had my eyes closed and was listening to my music since they clearly wanted us to mind our own business and NOT try to help the father (meanwhile all of us strangers were trying to figure out how to rearrange in order to help). The only reason entertainment gets a 2 is bc I had good conversation with the passenger next to me, not because of anything United did. Really unbelievable that they continue to operate this way and treat PAYING customers like this. It's sad actually."

Pros: "Very baby friendly especially when the ground crew was delayed because of lightening. The crew let us sit down if we wanted while we waited for our strollers and car seats."
Cons: "No crew member at gate desk til right before flight."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"

Pros: "Seat was pretty comfortable, as it goes in coach these days."

Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."

Cons: "Always quality service, food and plane! My fav!"

Cons: "We were delayed because the crew wasn't smart enough to ask people to put their purses beneath the seats. A number of us had to get off to check our bags and while we were checking them, a guy flying first class had a bag and while we are checking our luggage the pilot comes out and says "first class? Oh we will make room on the plane for you sir." And as a result of all of this, we missed our spot in the takeoff line, delayed the flight, and we almost missed our connection. Lastly, they overbooked the flight by TEN people. TEN."

Cons: "There was a lack of information the whole trip. We couldn't hear the announcements of the crew or pilot so we didn't know what was going on. When. The landing gear malfunctioned it took a very long time to hear what was going on. Then, upon deplaning, there was only one single gate agent waiting to help the flight. Very poor service!"

Pros: "United hires good people. Flight was comfortable and on-time."

Pros: "I enjoyed the heart warming and friendlyness of the pilot."
Cons: "The running nose sneezing person sitting next to me."

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delay, but not airline'S fault."

Pros: "Plane side checked bags. Kind flight crew."
Cons: "Perfect weather. Delayed an hour."

Cons: "Coach cramped"

Pros: "Flight was ahead of schedule. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Very cramped in the middle seat. Little cushion"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several times which meant I would miss my connecting flight. Rebooking was challenging and took over an hour. After it was supposedly rebooked on another airline, I couldn't check in because it wasn't booked correctly. Now sitting in airport for the last 10 hours and have another 5 hours until my flight. Not happy."

Cons: "they couldnt find the pilot. they said they didnt have enough crew"

Pros: "Everything was good."

Cons: "Plane was late and we almost missed our connection in Newark"

Pros: "United service is awful."

Cons: "The boarding process is ridiculous. Takes forever because it is totally irrational and driven by favoritism. Plus they don't enforce the baggage size rules."

Cons: "We did not leave on time"

Cons: "A 6:30 pm flight that leaves at 8:15? What is there to like?"

Pros: "They had a free snack."
Cons: "Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."

Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for 30+ min in Washington."

Pros: "Plane was nice and clean."
Cons: "Having to take a shuttle from one terminal to another in Chicago."

Pros: "I liked the fact that I had a window seat... at the way back. Also that I was at least offered snacks, or whatever was left because they ran out."
Cons: "They ran out of meals and snacks, both paid and free. We all pay a price, yet seats and class determine whether you will get your moneys worth. I guess the point is that I at least made it home."

Pros: "Arriving."

Cons: "Very cold on flights, no blankets"

Pros: "I love the whole thing about it. The take off was nice and smooth"

Cons: "entertainment system stopped working 1/2 way through flight."
