Cons: "Continuous improvement"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, food tasted great, the whole experience wasn't anything like the American style companies that try to shake you down for every penny and still get get ripped off."
Cons: "The whole experience was great for flying economy long distance. I will 100% be looking for Japan air as an option for any flight I do in the future."
Cons: "The chairs were just a little uncomfortable, too firm, but everything else made up for it."
Cons: "I might have missed it but the useful information of the weather of the destination was not announced this trip. Some pilots make the flight more personal with their messages with their PA system. No need to be interrupted a movie we are enjoying for the promotion of inflight purchase though."
Pros: "even though I was in Economy class, the seat was comfortable, the food was good and the flight attendands were attentive and polite"

Pros: "Kind and courteous staff"
Cons: "A family with 2 kids making noisy and crying nonstop during the flight the father was playing Japanese video games with headphones on and very careless but once in a wile started yelling at Kiks because they distracted him from his entertainment. Grandma next to them was careless too,mother left the kids to father and was sitting 2 rows in the back and they never came at least to try to make them quiet even when the kids started to kik everywhere licluding the food tray and almost breaks it. Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."

Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."
Pros: "The level of care and attention that was given to my comfort during the flight was extraordinary. Also the economy was much better than any economy i've ever come to expect from other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding I didn't know at first where to go to get to the gate. Having to exit and then re-enter the airport was a pain and further complicated my boarding. But that was not JAL's fault and is on SFO."
Pros: "i cancelled my flight and still have not got my money returned"
Cons: "I dont have my return but you take it right away"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Cons: "no 1st class offered. I wanted to use my system wide upgrade but can't get a flight that offers 1st class anymore"
Pros: "Friendly diligent staff"
Cons: "No announcement to acknowledge the bumpy ride"
Pros: "We had a 4,5 hours delayed.. :("
Pros: "Japan Airlines hasn’t the best customer service of any airline I have ever flown. Flight attendants aren’t very friendly and they give you a lot of food. The entertainment was great as well."

Pros: "Fantastic service, excellent food, state-of-the-art entertainment, always on-time and professional."

Pros: "What a terrific airline. Polite service, great food, comfortable seats and a clean plane. So much better than US airline companies."
Pros: "Still, love JAL's customer service from the cabin crew. The flight attendants are always friendly, courteous and professional. They do a great job of meeting and exceeding passengers expectations"
Cons: "The cabin area was extremely warm; at one point, I had to take out the safety card and fan myself. There was no explanation why the approximately 5-hour flight was uncomfortably warm. During the flight, I woke up from a sound sleep because of the heat in the cabin."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. Overall it was as good as a 12 hour economy flight can go."
Cons: "Unfortunately they ran out of some food by the time they got to us and only had fish left. It was okay, just not my favorite. We were 35 minutes late taking off which contributed with me missing my connecting flight."
Pros: "excellent seat space, friendly flight attendants, would fly with JAL again."
Pros: "Roominess of economy seats."
Cons: "Poor movie selection. Heavily skewed to action/terror/suspense. Very few dramas, and none of them current."
Cons: "I ordered Hindu vegeterian meal while coming to Chicago on phone with Japan Airline I got Asian veg food"
Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"
They wouldn’t let me board because Japan changed their entry policies and I did not get notified. Had to wait another day, pay rebooking fees and miss my family that I haven’t seen in 4 months. TERRIBLE!!
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seat. A bit rude flight attendant."
Pros: "The plane was ghetto and old and there was only one tiny restroom for the entire economy class."

Pros: "The cabin crews were excellent. Food was delicious. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Overall had a great experience"
Cons: "12:05 am flight back to Lax is good because you can sleep a little then be awake for a good period of time before and after landing which helps promote getting back to normal sooner. Flight got a little chilly whole is was sleeping but otherwise a very good flight."
Pros: "Overall the flight met expectations for service, comfort and food."
Cons: "Variety of entertainment (or lack of), and the flight being continuously delayed. Even though the flight ended up departing just an hour later than initially scheduled, I would rather receive one notification for a 1-hour delay, than four notifications for 15-minute delays."
Pros: "The staff of ANA took superb care of us from the moment we entered the airport (both SEA and NRT); kindness, excellent food (choose the seafood diet, the food is excellent and you get served first!) and helpful directions in English whenever we looked the slightest bit confused. I will always look to fly ANA going forward. oh, and comfortable economy seats; enough room (I am 6'2") and no numb bum."
Pros: "I like the service. I like the way they checked my back stuff and put back very neat. I’m very happy with your company,"
Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"
Pros: "More movies choices is better and I had asked to get seat comfortable, yes the boarding crew staff made it. Thank you."
Cons: "Movies and musics more variables from all over the world."
Pros: "Enough legroom/more than what you’d find on your standard 4-5 hour flights. The stewardesses were great! They attended to every need with a smile. They did a great job of making sure everyone was comfortable."
Cons: "They need some vegetarian options for meals."
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: "Typical ANA quality. Bumpy flight but handled very well."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "There was a air hostess I wish I knew her name I was seated at the very back she really took care of me she thought I was sick she kept asking me am I ok Flyer NH 175 LAX / Nairta because I did not eat at all the food was good don't get me wrong all Airlines should have people like her"
Cons: "My flight arriving Narita was lat but I was taking care everything was a range excellent again"
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: "Aircraft menu and service"
Cons: "Aircraft seat pitch"

Cons: "The food. Though it's Halal but very poor quality you should have to improve it."
Pros: "Very kind flight attendants with amazing service!"
Cons: "They ran out of the two food options, so many people were stuck with the fish option. The entertainment section was just okay."
Cons: "Someone sat on my row without notifying the crew of the seat change. After I notified the FA of the incident... even if it's a general rule that the passenger sits at the ticketed seat, the FA didn't do anything about it"
Pros: "The stewardesses were always smiling and very engaging!"
Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."
Pros: "This was a pleasant flight. The crew was very friendly and considering I almost missed my flight, due to my own negligence, the airline was amazing in making sure I made it."

Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "The food. the personable flight attendants. The whole experience is amazing."
Cons: "Lack of English movies on the ife. Mediocre headphones in business class."

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: "My Marine son and I traveled ANA from Okinawa to Hiroshima. We had to be bussed out to our plane but it was so worth it because we were on a Star Wars plane."
Cons: "My son and I had made separate reservations and they lost his. however he was able to get on the flight and they sat us together."
Pros: "A N A Very good, space between chairs is very good, crew very professional and friendly"
Pros: "Cabin crew provided great service!"
Pros: "Smooth operations, friendly crew, clean plane, free booze in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing really when flying coach. Second meal now like a box lunch instead of full meal. Cost cutting I guess. Seats are small but not as bad as United domestic. No major complaints."
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Don't recline. Could use more film choices."
Pros: "I liked that each seat had a foot rest. The food was very good you get a haaggen dazs ice cream during one of the meals. The food wasn't filling but that's to be expected so bring snacks if your own. The flight was smooth no issues and the flight attendants were very attentive. Had a tv with movies and the personal tv also had games like a game system."
Cons: "I disliked that the seating did not have its own personal air. At times I would get hot."
Pros: "Good for a short flight! Very nice staff"
Cons: "Time to renew the aircraft 777-300"
Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."
Pros: "Clean cabin and good service"
Cons: "Not every body is doing extra miles to make customer happy"
Pros: "Great Premium Economy experience with comfortable seats and extremely-hospitable cabin crew!"
Cons: "Archaic In-Flight Wi-Fi Plans should be brought to modern-age plans."
Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."
Pros: "Crew is attentive to our needs"
Pros: "Movies selection is great. Seating space is comfortable."

Cons: "food is average. TV screens are so bad that you cant watch a full movie. Seat is comfortable. Over all the plane was old and worn out"

Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "Great service and very very comfy"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"
Cons: "Sitting in a middle seat. Was told at the jetway counter no aisle or window seats were available. I saw no fewer than 5 empty aisle seats in my area."
Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"
Pros: "friendly and attentive crew. connecting flight was a breeze. well worth the price."
Cons: "The flights were always late causing us to miss a connection. Also when purchasing the ticket I was not informed of two extra stops that only showed up when I checked in."
Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"
Pros: "I love traveling on Singapore airlines. They have excellent service and always on time. Their entertainment system is very good. I won't say excellent as I've seem Emirates and they still have along way to go to catch up."
Cons: "They did not give us the landing cards and we had to fill them in at the airport. Many were like us and I am surprised. Also for business class passengers they don't get into a priority lane as you see in Emirates and other airlines. while Singapore airline is very good, they still lack in the details."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."

Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"
Pros: "The on-board crew was polite and humble. Food served was delicious and the flight reached on time."
Cons: "The flight was quite old, was a bit surprised as the route seems very busy. Our seat 36J and K interestingly had no windows. First time flew on a flight with no window row."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
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: "Crew was very friendly and good service."
Cons: "Crew could have asked the passengers whether they need snacks in between."
Pros: "Service was best in class"
Cons: "Planes are old. They never seem to use newer planes on the Brisbane leg."
Cons: "Long delay with in between flights. No special kits for kids to keep them entertained. Does not even serve drink when order special meal. Leaves the tray for hour before picking up. No transit help in hongkong. I can go on and on."
Cons: "poor ground and inflight crews hospitality poor food quality poor food variation"
Pros: "Getting up at 4am on a Monday (post Singapore 7s) - couldn't have been a better timing for a free upgrade (as the plane was full). Travelling on Singapore Air is always a pleasure - but that made it even better....."

Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"
Pros: "Great food. Very fresh looking flight attendants. Awesome personal entertainment system."

Pros: "Lots of movie and game options"
Cons: "Staff was slow to tend to my needs (i.e. Water), continually bumped into my shoulder or leg. Would not accommodate moving my seat next to my wife's because a couple wanted to have an entire row to themselves. Very frustrating"
Cons: "You are cold and cant get any blanket? Very poor service"
Pros: "very good service"
Pros: "Crew we're friendly and helpful. Seats were good."
Cons: "Old plane so in-flight entertainment systems didn't work properly in 3 of the 4 seats we occupied."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Flight was on time. Seats were good per economy class"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!"
Cons: "The screens should be replaced with new High quality ones."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process lacked discipline"

Pros: "Food, and space"
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
Pros: "Everything as usual"
Cons: "Some rude passengers"
Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable because it did not convert into a completely horizontal bed. The small incline meant that I could not get comfortable and could not sleep. The screens remain on even when passengers go to sleep, making it very bright in the cabin. It would be good if staff could walk through and turn them off manually."
Pros: "Check-in , immigration and security experience at Dubai was very efficient via the business class terminal."
Cons: "Old business class arrangement for this route seems very outdated conpared compared to the newer fleet; was not worth the extra upgrade fee."
Pros: "A380! Overall is good. I liked a bag of accessories including eye mask and socks."
Cons: "In flight food in Arabic style, my brother didn't like much of that styled food. But I'm OK with it. They provided light meal ( "pide" lamb/veggie filled bread or choice of fruit). The veggie pide was a bit weird. But overall, the food was not so bad."
Pros: "No commutation no help for transit"
Cons: "I am a women no help first time fling with them"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"

Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Cons: "No tea only coffee. No extra drinks. Crew unenthusiastic. Fewer decent English movies. Will be looking elsewhere after 14 years of being emirates-loyal."
Pros: "Service and entertainment options made the 13 hour flight go very smoothly. Emirates crew is the best, always smiling and helpful."
Pros: "Great crew good food"
Cons: "Crew was not really engaging with a smile. Seemed like they were avoiding longer conversation or even eye contact."
Cons: "The economy seats are too narrow and 10 abreast on a 777 is one too many seats."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Too cold. Food not very good"
Pros: "Onboard crew- Bliss was the name of the crew member on board. Efficient and a joyful personality to engage. He connected , talked and responded warmly and efficiently."
Cons: "Checking in at the airport- the staff person who I dealt with was combative and inflexible. I had to ask the manager to mediate till the matter was resolved. As frequent travelers, I am aware rules change and am willing to comply. Being told my hand baggage had to be checked in and I cannot redistribute the weight or put things into my checking bags that were yet to be tagged was unreasonable. Started my trip on a negative note which was avoidable. I have found the training crew get and the ground staff get are disparate. As efficient as the onboard crew are, the ground staff in DXB and now NYC do not match up."
Cons: "I had opted for wheelchair assistance and the same was not provided in New York airport. She was left on a taxi alone to get to next terminal. As she was traveling alone and has problems on her legs , she got nervous and this travel was a stress full one."
Cons: "Entertainment program could be more structured; remote control did not work as it should;"
Pros: "Food was really good and they accommodated my gluten free diet with ease. Great movies and tv shows to watch!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the internet to work...not sure if it was my phone or their service. Seats don't lean back much and there isn't as much legroom as some other airlines I've used. Hard to sleep."

Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."

Food was great, had 3 choices of entrees for each meal."
Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Crew courtesy, exceptional service"
Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."

Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"

The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
