Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."
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!"

Cons: "Economy seat was hard and uncomfortable. Meal tray is quite small. For international flights: Not ANA's responsibility, of course: the level of Hollywood movie artistry these days is so poor. Perhaps ANA could consider selecting more movie classics and proven gems in their flight selection. More classicTV shows could help, also."
Pros: "Fantastic customer service, excellent food everything was best and clean."

I paid so much money for tickets and they are saying they don't have meal . When I talked to ground staff about this they also said the same thing and when I asked them what about my next flight meals they said that will let me know at the the time of boarding that they can provide me with food or not. Hell it was so disgusting that you guys will tell me at the time of boarding that you are going to let me know whether you are going to give me food or not.. And they know that I am not alone I was traveling with my 5 year old son also. They are really hopeless. I am really disappointed"

Cons: "wanted to upgrade from premium economy to business, but from taipei to houston was $3800 extra, after i already paid $1500 for premium economy. they never have business class full so don’t know why they don’t come down on their fares. i was quoted initially $1500 but then the tix agent called and told me the news..."
Pros: "It's hard to get a flight out of Vietnam one-time using their cheap local carriers so I went with an international brand. At $200 roundtrip, I was worried there were going to be a bunch of charges for things as well as delays. But low and behold, UNI/EVA seems to have figured out cheap tickets that run on schedule and includes all the normal perks like luggage. 1:50am flight is perfect, left Vietnam on time and even arrived in Taipei ahead of schedule! I would definitely fly them again."
Cons: "My only complaint is the lighting. There is too much going on in the cabin for a 1:50am flight. I wish they wouldn't serve food and not turn the lights on and off as its difficult to sleep. Also the flight attendants were very peculiar about just how much my bag was under the seat."
Pros: "Veggie food delicious"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, efficient boarding, great selection of games and movies for IFE, good food. Totally satisfactory."

Pros: "Great food & entertainment choices"
Cons: "The crew should have been more accommodating as I have a broken ankle and am in a cast and have to walk with crutches. It is painful and the only thing that helps the pain is to have it elevated. The crew was not accommodating to help me switch seats to one with more leg room."

Cons: "crew were very good."
Pros: "Plus points: Boarding slightly late but OK once it got going. They seemed to have a reasonable drinks selection on board. Cute safety videos."
Cons: "Once boarded some people move around and "re-allocate" their seat. Some recline seats during the meal service and staff are reluctant to tell them off depending on their age. Food unimaginative. A321 narrow-body - only one movie on main screen (inaudible but with Chinese-only subtitles) and no seat-back TV on a 3-hour flight. Overall not so good but another flight I took, widebody (A330) service, has seat-back TV and so is more tolerable."
Cons: "Please update more new movies and musics"
Pros: "Flight landed early. Food was good."
Pros: "food is ok."
Pros: "I don't have kids, other people do. The attendants give each child a play package to keep them busy and bring out their food early to keep them from making a fuss. There's more than enough to keep adults busy; movies, games, shows, food"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats were roomy."
Pros: "Flight crew was very good. Service was great. Flight took off and landed safely...... most importantly."
Cons: "Hated being told at checkin that my regulation size carry on bags were slightly over weight and my only option was to go over on the floor and open them up to redistribute the weight. I was reluctantly fine with checking one of the bags, however not with being treated so carelessly and disrespectfully. I am not the kind of person that is ok with being put in that situation. As an airline I understand you need to have rules and guidelines to function, however sending me over to open my luggage on the floor in front of 1000's of other people is just humiliating!! If that is such a strict policy you really should have a space with some kind of privacy available and set up for customers to prepare to make things meet your standards. Then he changed my seat assignment for some reason and put me in an exit row..... not explaining that there is NO SPACE AT ALL for ANY carry on bags. That means no pills nearby that I needed, or headphones, magazines, iPads etc. I was really mad when I sat down and immediately asked to be moved. Luckily someone was willing to trade. Needed more to eat on a 14 hour flight also. Was really hungry."
Pros: "We got the emergency exit seats that gave us leg room."
Cons: "That was not fish that they had served us. We ate around the actual entrée. As a larger person the seats a pretty tight"
Pros: "Great flight and polite crew. The aircraft was clean and comfortable."
Pros: "I like the free flight entertainment which made time pass by faster. Food was good and restroom was kept cleaned."
Pros: "Seats, staff, customer service"
Cons: "Food wasnt awesome."
Pros: "The hello kitty plan was awesome."
Cons: "The reduced rating for boarding is due to EVA air not enforcing the cabin luggage policies. One family of three each had two large suite cases. This greatly slowed down boarding and greatly reduced the available bin space. If there is going to be a policy, it should be enforced."
Pros: "Good Food both ways both meals. Good AC."
Cons: "Movie selection."
Pros: "The check in staff were nice"
Cons: "Food was horrible, the food from the outgoing flight gave all 3 of my family members food poisoning. Entertainment system didnt work for one of the flight, i asked the flight attendants twice and they didnt seem to care."
Pros: "Friendly service, good food, nice aircraft."
Cons: "Air traffic controller delayed flight for 30 min."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was pleasant."

Cons: "The airline's on time record has got to improve. Period."

Pros: "Tons of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating, even on a short flight. Food was also great."
Cons: "This plane was a bit older so I had issues with my seat--controls for the leg rest and to lean the seat back were jammed so I couldn't adjust during the flight."
Pros: "Our flight is only Incheon to Narita and later that night our final destination is LAX. I have checked in to Singapore Airlines the day before our flight. While checking in at the Incheon airport, the ground attendant ask me for my final destination. After a few minutes, shw mentioned that our baggage will be picked up at LAX. I was so relieved since this trip was 3 weeks with 3 50lbs luggage and 2 10 lb backpacks. I imagined going to Japanese Immigration again and explaining the reason for the entry. Because of this our layover is seamless. Star Alliance made it so easy for us to take their airlines anytime. Kudos to Star Alliance. Oh, the legroom is roomy for Economy! Nothing can compare with their airbus. I am only 5foot1inch and its like having a lounging chair. My husband whose 5’10” is happy with the space. Thanks for thinking of your passengers!"
Cons: "It is minor thing only. Their headphones does not work. Which is not an issue since I always bring headphones and buds for our long haul flights!"
Pros: "Flights on time , good seats and a good services"
Pros: "more legs room, but the sit cushing is horrible,, make people lower back hurt after the long time of sitting"
Cons: "food isn’t quite as fresh, delay time made the transfer between flight very tight"
Cons: "Always late"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Every plane delayed."
Pros: "Food was excellent at least some of the time. And pretty good the other times. It was also nice to get slippers/"
Pros: "Great airline, plenty of space. Crew was super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Airplane food isn’t great where ever you go"
Pros: "I liked everything about the airlines, the flight attendants are so respectful and kind. They go out of their way to help the packager get comfortable and settle in there seat before and after take off. I have been a member with Asian Airlines for 6 years and won't change airlines for nothing even if I have to pay a little extra for great service."
Cons: "I have no complaints with this Asian Airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable journeys without getting tired"
Pros: "Meal was surprisingly fresh & tastey."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable. Entertainment system minimal selection."

Pros: "The plane interior was in much better shape compared to my other Asiana trip. Flight attendants on this plane was much more courteous compared to my other asiana flight"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight. The attendants were kind and I received great service."
Pros: "Both of my roung trip got delayed for about an hour. The service was very so so compared to Korean Air. I couldn't get tickets through Korean Air because of no ticket available but next time I will definitely look forward Korean Air only."
Cons: "Just about everything."
Pros: "Friendly crew good ife. Economy will never be spacious but they manage to make it comfortable."
Cons: "Chicken burrito on an intra Asian flight?!? Was looking forward to something Asian."
Pros: "Flight was great, food was what you'd expect but above average if you have no expectations. Crew was nice and entertainment had a wide selection of recent movies. Comfort was ok and complimentary blankets could be requested."
Cons: "Only issue I had was the person siting next to me putting their elbows and feet into my portion of the seat. Asked her to move and she complained. This is an expected attitude if you fly anywhere with mainland Chinese passengers . If escalated it would result in her screaming and complaining. But it is an Asian airline and I can't control the passenger who choose to fly so I can't complain too much. Still would recommend to friends."
Pros: "I didn't expect there to be a meal & in-flight movies on what I considered to be a relatively short flight. It was a nice treat!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, legroom was good, staff was very friendly both at the check in and on the plane"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online, kiosk didn't work for me, and had to wait in several long lines before I finally got my ticket in hand. The help was lost among the crowd and it was unclear where they were and how they could be flagged down."
Pros: "Two and a half hour flight but full meal still served. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "We like the comfortable seats of the Airbus 380, the crew services. The food is ok; the entertainment is good"
Cons: "The boarding should be categorize in row number to avoid long line and delay."
Cons: "Seat needs more cushioning"
Pros: "Crew was friendly from start to finish."
Pros: "Decent in flight meal. Good service with a smile. Korean style presentation gives a warm sentiment to the service."
Cons: "Limited in flight entertainment for children."
Pros: "Well they upgrade us to business class and lets me tell you, if inhvar that kind of money, I would buy that business every time I travel. The best time and didn't want to get off."
Cons: "Nothing that I didn't like. Very impressed from beginning unti landed."
Pros: "Flight attendant are smiling&friendly...nice landing."
Cons: "Tv old model...screen very small...hard to operate....very tiny letters...seats are uncomfortable for 16 hours flight Seoul to Chicago..."
Cons: "the flight was late 30'."
Pros: "The air "exercises" that you are forced to watch at the end of any Asiana flight are a joke- pressing on three pressure point? How about some leg or arm stretches? Flight took off and landed. Poor cabin speaker system; could not understand anything."
Pros: "The company called one travel agency quoted $1,000.00 per ticket from Vancouver to tokyo. I purchased 3 tickets but in about 3 weeks later I find out that they cancelled it. I complained about it and they asked if I wanted to purchase the same tickets from the same flight and seas for $1,500.00. Because I wanted to save $50 (Air Canada was $1,050.00 through Travelocity at the time), I had to pay $1,400.00 for Air Canada ticket 3 weeks later. I will never fly ANNA or deal with travel one. Even though it is a little more expensive I will only deal with reputable company such as travelocity."
Pros: "Food, service were great"
Pros: "I particularly liked the seamlessness of the experience - from the downtown checkin and getting a boarding pass at Seoul station, taking the AREX, the efficiency and competence of the front line personnel, etc. I will recommend Asiana and I would consider taking them long distance except that I am a goldcard frequent flier with American/British/Cathay for many years now. Chicago talks about seamlessness in its airport experience but its train-to-the-plane is the chronic weak link."
Cons: "Nothing - I'd tell you if there was. I didn't bother with entertainment for a two-hour flight and I was already well into a really eloquent novel (I'll Be Right There) by Kyung-Sook Shin; check it out"
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Trying to make everything online and was not being able to make it easily. Confused in infirmations."
Pros: "It's hard to say anything was good when the flight was cancelled."
Cons: "6:40pm Friday flight was delayed 2 hours, and when we finally boarded, pulled away from the gate, and were ready to takeoff, they announced the flight was cancelled because they can't meet the curfew at Narita Airport. Took us another hour to deplane, and another hour to go through immigration and customs (yes we had to do it again), and get our bags. Then they sent us to a hotel 30 mins outside Seoul (they told us it was 20), gave us a Lotteria fast food burger and asked us to be in the lobby at 4:50AM (it was already midnight). Bus didn't have enough space for everyone so they had to call a van too. When we arrived at the airport after our 30 min ride, the bus dropped us off on the wrong side and we all had to walk 15 mins to the opposite end of the airport to check in. Since the rescheduled flight was the first flight out, the airport was super busy and security lines were extra long. After all those lines there was barely enough time to get on the plane. Summary: from originally scheduled time until wheels up I waited in about 6 hours of lines or just sitting around,1 hour of bus rides, slept 3 hours, and ate one lousy burger. All of this for what was supposed to be a nice weekend trip to Tokyo, which chopped down to a 30 hour stay in Tokyo. These guys should have known what time they can pull away from the gate to make curfew. There's no reason why we all had to go through this extra aggravation. Turns out Asiana has been making really tight schedules to accommodate the summer peak season, and they just can't keep up."
Pros: "The staff were excellent and very kind and attentive."
Cons: "In flight headphones were way too big"
Pros: "I had a great time during my flight from istanbul to Seoul . My seat didn't recline and cabin crew immediately helped and took me to a business class as an apology . They were very responsive to any time i needed help . And the food was amazing . Even the economy class gets gourmet meals ."
Pros: "Food and comfort"
Pros: "Good service Easy to board Flight attendant awesome"

Pros: "Nice crew , good and good"
Cons: "If someday ... someday....I can afford First Class . That’s will be Nice for a long flight ."

Check in - no check in line for premium passengers.( really bad experience) Cabin crews could not separate passengers from other cabin consisting using lavatory there fore passengers constantly walk back and forward. (It’s really unpleasant) It’s. Not worth the money to paid for the experience and services."
Pros: "The seat is good"
Cons: "The price low a little more is better"
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."

Pros: "Third time on Cathay Pacific"
Cons: "the food- vegetarian"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"
Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"
Cons: "Flight delay was not announce until boarding time. Such chaos!! at 1:00 AM. Rescheduled the next 24hrs. I was lucky to live within one hour of the airport. Next day, after boarded the plane, had to sit inside plane for 2 1/2 hours until the plane takes off. It was not a good experienced, even though they gave us a voucher for 75.$"

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific provided excellent service."
Cons: "Inform me hours before boarding a flight delay and layover time to connect to second flight extended from 2 to 18 hours. Called customer service for further info and arrangement. Long wait on calls and no definite answer if hotel will be provided. Customer service ny and hk no coordination and bounced me from one party to another. Poor attitude of Cathay at NY JFK Airport counter who showed indifference and claimed too busy to take attention."
Pros: "Very nice crew and stuff , clean plane, clean facilities. Everything is superb."
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
