Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Needs more variety of movies"
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."

Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"
Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"
Pros: "Good service and selection of movies.Boarding is orderly. Crew very courteous. . We have been flying JAL for a few times and never regret"
Cons: "Boeing 777 is not as attractive as the new 787.e.g. Ambient lighting, cabin noise control etc., are far more superior in the 787"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of leg room. Food is much better than US airlines and so as the service! Will fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "JAL ' service is nice."
Cons: "I didn't like MSG in food."
Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"
Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"

Pros: "the AA flight to japan was the worst flight I've ever been on! tv sreen didn't work, space was tight, food terrible, two sets of headphones bad, I could go on but I don't even want to think about it anymore"
Cons: "getting off"
Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."
Pros: "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"
Pros: "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."
Cons: "Can't say that I have ANY complaints at all!!"
Pros: "It was perfect!"
Pros: "Service N crew n entertainment."
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"
Cons: "We had a last minute flight change to extend my business stay in Asia. Our firm contacted JAL on 3/1 to extend the return date from 3/3 to 3/8. We were told that it was done and just call back on 3/7 to confirm flight. When we called back on 3/7, they said the flight was never rescheduled and could not find a voice recording of the request. Despite our offering of evidence of our other ticket from Osaka to TPE (3/3-3/8 round trip) showing that it was not a no-show, and we have phone records of calling JAL on 3/1. Nevertheless, their customer care center in CHINA was firm that it cannot be done. The money has been wasted. Ridiculous service for a 3,500 business class ticket."
Cons: "Screen was small and movies start at certain times."
Pros: "Food, seat comfort, service"
Pros: "Seat not comfortable crew was amazing"
Cons: "Comfort in seat"

Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were kind and tried to be very helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was difficult to figure out and maneuver around and it seemed like the choices of movies were all sad."
Pros: "There was a delay"
Pros: "Very pleasant. I upgraded to economy plus so that was a bonus."
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."
Pros: "ANA is always prompt, even when there are delays. The flight attendants are always kind and polite."
Cons: "Today's flight was delayed and set back arrival by twenty minutes."

Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Very nice flight. The plane was in great shape and the stewardesses were very nice."
Pros: "crew was awesome! Service was outstanding"
Cons: "a little warm on the plane. food was ordinary"
Pros: "The ANA crew is always exceptional. Drinks and food are constantly being provided and the crew routinely walks about the cabin to ensure passenger needs are being met."
Cons: "For some reason, other countries do not use a number system when boarding. This often means if you're not paying attention, you could be the last to board the aircraft because a line will form almost out of thin air. Minor issue, but a systematic boarding procedure would be good."
Pros: "Young, pretty, and charming stewardesses. :-)"
Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary. Every crew member goes above and beyond one's expectations. My wife and my kid had a lovely time and comfortable journey. Will definitely try to book this flight again in future."
Cons: "There was no Indian or vegetarian food. My wife and my kid had to work with bread and jam only."
Pros: "Respectful and thoughtful passengers and crew make all the difference."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."
Pros: "ANA have, as usual, good service throughout, very good entertainment selection and food is good. The 787 is fairly spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Flight actually has a later departure slot than the headline departure time; being Narita, there is a significant risk of extra delay due to runway congestion. Arrived late at BRU and nearly missed connection due to combination of this (nearly 1 hour delay) and adverse jet stream."
Pros: "Everyone staff member was friendly and helpful. Dinner was great."
Cons: "The only thing I did not enjoy was breakfast . Selection was not great, we did not eat."
Pros: "ANA operated flight was good - new plane, comfortable seats, good food, good service"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be improved - for ANA flight, there weren't very many English-language movie options. It was mostly just action movies and none of them were very appealing to me"
Pros: "The crew did a great job making sure everyone was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "Be friendlier for pets flying in the cargo hold. Reducing the capacity from 20 to 5 per flight and regularly increasing the fees is not helpful at all."
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "Great champagne. Good food. Good movie selection. Great seat. Pajamas."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent airline."
Pros: "Great crew and nice comfortable seats"
Cons: "Great service from flight staff."
Pros: "Seat was ok"
Cons: "Everything could have been better"
Pros: "Alll good and arrived early!"

Pros: "Excellent staff!"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Safe flight."
Cons: "Narrow space"
Pros: "metal silverware is great, reduces plastic waste."

Pros: "Very helpful and very friendly. I never saw it happen in United or any American Airlines."

Pros: "All in house setvices"
Cons: "Eva is great airline , better then a lot of the competitors. However during the lag between Taipei and SFO we did not receive any drinking water unless requested - on any other airlines they always provide small bottled water , For the long lag of the flight liquid is essantation."
Cons: "Surfboard charge not very good"
Pros: "Crew is very professional and helpful. I like the sticker for the transfer flight."
Cons: "They just seem overworked and perhaps that is why they don't smile as much as I would expect. The movie selection going back to SF seem much less than going to Taipei. Selection seemed much more limiting. I wished there is a way to be more environmental with the plastic cups. Perhaps give everybody a re-useable cup in the beginning and we keep it throughout the flight. By the end of the flight, each person wasted at least 8-10 cups. That is a lot of waste."
Pros: "Entertainment and arrived 1 hr early as scheduled."
Cons: "No priority boarding for passenger with kids. Beverages needs to be offered routinely. Passenger should be served wirh food, awake or not. No loot bag offered to children."
Pros: "Everything is good. Overall we had a better experience comparing KUL to TPE."

Cons: "hong kong airport provides free wi-fi. no free wi-fi in taipei airport. no clock anywhere in waiting area or in corridor. no weather announcement in Taipei airport before connecting flight even when typhoons were approaching. movie choice was quite limited for long flights."
Pros: "For an economy flight, provided you're seated on an aisle, this is probably one of the more affordable luxury options."
Cons: "Movie selection was lacking\ Bathroom floor was wet; I needed to wipe ti up myself"
Pros: "Large selection of free movies"
Cons: "It's very good. I like the flight! The price is very reasonable and the service is not bad at all!!! The lady in the airplane are very polite to the passengers and they always provide their best service and smile. It makes people feel like home and comfortable taking the flight!"
Pros: "Same as the first flight."
Cons: "Same as the first flight."

Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Lack of drinks offerdd"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Every thing was nice"
Cons: "Staff seemed to not care about passengers. Could partially be a language/cultural barrier, but i have consistently noticed staff just want to push through their tasks. Actual service is not a priority it seems. Another issue, often times they run out of food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The kosher food was bad"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "This flt was the opposite of our earlier flt from TLV to IST. This crew was fantastic--went out of their way to be helpful & pleasant. They were attentive during the entire 13 hr flt. Food was also fantastic. Restrooms were clean and easy to use. All around GREAT flt. Thank you"
Cons: "I wanted to look out the window while flying over Greenland but we were asked to keep the window closed for sleeping passengers. That view of the northern sea and ice cap is Phenomenal and not to be missed if at all possible!! I wanted to wake everyone up to watch it and they could go back to sleep later...;-) Boarding also took a long time...we left 30-45 minutes late."
Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."
Pros: "Crew was good Comfortable seats"
Cons: "food could have been better"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There should be more snacks during the long flight. Only one item was available and it was located in the rear of the plane. It was difficult for senior citizens to avail this service."
Cons: "Seating too tight/ crew staff members at Istanbul airport"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms. Very long lines to go to the bathroom."
Cons: "No, disappointments:)"
Pros: "Food—though not much of it! If you’re asleep, good luck getting any food afterward. They were out of breakfasts after I awoke. Didn’t they count the reservations?"
Cons: "Restrooms dirty, cabin dirty—no owriodic seeeps, staff that makes no effort to interact. They appear frantic and overworked. sure hope the pilots are more engaged than everyone w Turkish Air"
Pros: "Service was very good, an excellent selection of entertainment to stay distracted during the 13 hour flight, and a reasonable rate for the flight."
Cons: "See sbove"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "With some reason, everything was smooth at Istanbul compare to SFO."
Cons: "Boarding took way too long - I waited in my seat with no air conditioner sweating so much."
Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Cons: "We had to wait about one hour after sitting."
Cons: "Nice people"
Pros: "more leg room. comfortable seats. polite and friendly crew."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."
Pros: "Worst customer service ever."
Cons: "Just don't do it. I've never been so mistreated. Everyone I met at the Istanbul airport who flew on Turkish was miserable and angry because of the way they were being treated."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was above average. The in-flight crew was fine, although not particularly gracious or kind."
Cons: "The on-ground customer service in Istanbul was the worst experience I have ever had with humans in my whole life. They were unhelpful, rude, blatantly ignored people, dismissive, walked away from customers when they didn't want to deal with them, did not do anything to keep order when people were cutting in line after people were waiting for 4+ hours. I will avoid flying Turkish Airlines as best I can."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "It didn't happen and I wasn't notified"
Pros: "The meals was good"
Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Cons: "Basically the wifi doesn't work on these long haul flights. It's either not connected or extremely slow. I finally gave up and didn't bother"
Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."

Cons: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."
Pros: "free large movie selection. good food with some Turkish flair. super friendly staff. power port for electronics. Istanbul is a very busy airport hub. This time, we had no delays, but we have before."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Overall not a good experience"
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"
Cons: "Crew member wanted me to move my seat up so the passenger behind me can have more room. The person in front of me had his chair pushed all the way back, what the hell was the crew member thinking? I still did not move my chair and argued with the female crew. Crew members do not treat everyone equally. I asked for functioning pair of headphones and water, crew members never brought them to me. Responded by saying yes, BUT never brought it to me. I noticed crew members treated children and Turkish passengers first. I'm Chinese and flew Turkish airline- I felt the discrimination. Never traveling with Turkish airlines AGAIN."
Pros: "Nothing everyone was rude and I seemed to bother them"
Cons: "Everything from communication to compensation"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable didn’t have to pay extra for my personal day crew was polite"

Cons: "30 min late"
Pros: "Plane was newer than I expected. Had tv monitors on the back of seat headrests."

Cons: "Everything. It was loud, cramped, the crew was late. The flight was really late. It was all bad."
Pros: "Made it to my destination"
Cons: "2-hour delay in the plan after departure from the gate for maintenance. The seats are so small that my knees hit the seat in front of me the entire flight."
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy, nice seat, overall comfort."
Cons: "Leg rests for our seats didn’t work. Crew said ther was no fix for problem and left it at that. A bit disappointing. Fruit plate was disappointing, but pastry and yogurt was nice. Fruit wasn’t fresh."
Pros: "miserable. Flight."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "No concerns What I expected for a quick flight"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "horrible food and poor service and attitude of cabin crew"
Cons: "No tv, entertainment, charging"
Cons: "spending $600 on a one way flight with you today has been the worst experience and rip off ever! Delayed in Hartford 6 hours. Changed my layover flight in Dallas. Now Dallas delayed 1 hour."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The original flight time was an hour and 30 minutes. We got there in 45 minutes."
Cons: "The departure times changed several times and the plane was over packed to the point they had to put carryons into checked baggage."
Cons: "Gate agent told me it wasn't his job to quickly verify if my luggage had made it on the plane after my 10 minute sprint in PHX. I know at my job, I don't get the luxury of telling customers "it's not my job", especially when the customer has had a bad experience with us."
Pros: "Enough leg room. Free movies"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that, I was ask to help a non English person, whom spoke French find their way to the departure area from check in. I could not understand their broken English. That I feel is the job of the person or staff trying to check them in."
Pros: "Flight was as expected, Nothing to report."
Cons: "Seat was fine and of course when the person in from recliner it was no longer fun. And that was on premium economy."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 35 minutes"
Pros: "Excellent. on Time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Planes were punctual and smooth flight"
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Cons: "don’t know! didn’t get to phoenix because of plane issues"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed and was not cleaned at all, may be because of short of time, but minimized the further delay, so acceptable."
Cons: "The man at the gate was rude and tried to tell me I needed to pay 50$ to bring on my small purse, while his assistant said I could put it in my carry-on. Even more strict that Spieit airlines and higher prices. They didn't even bring around drinks because of "turbulence" unless you were first class. The plane shook slightly more than a smooth flight for only a small fraction of the flight."
Pros: "Clean plane a little more room in economy seats. Crew helped people find window and aisle seats if they were in middle."
Cons: "No in seat entertainment. Just drop down lCD panels for shows."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Best part left on time and arrived early. Many thanks. Good seat room in the older S80."
Cons: "Overhead bins very full. No entertainment but that's ok for flights under 4 hours."
Cons: "Pre-booked Special meals were not catered to. Could have appreciated more friendly crew."
Pros: "Personell at Bagage drop was nice"
Cons: "First the time between connection flights was very short. Then after just making the. Innextion sat for almost 2 hours on board . Missed introductory lunch for my new summer job at my college -"
Cons: "Essentially a bus ride with the comfort of a wooden bench."
Pros: "I cannot comment because the total journey was without food."
Cons: "The crew is so rude that I was asked to remove the meat and eat the remaining. Is there no value for Veg eaters in American Airlines."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "I could never sync in the entertainment app and wifi"
Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."
Pros: "Pretty average flight and experience overall. Food was as expected. Average flight attendants - no one really stood out, which is odd for an international flight."
Cons: "Premium economy seat didn't decline making this the most uncomfortable and unpremium experience I've had. Sore neck and back. Searching for media such as artist or movie worthless - yields no results, yet the album is included in the listings - I stumbled on it earlier in the flight and wanted to listen to it again. Same search experience on a flight three months ago."
Pros: "Used system wide upgrade to 1st class. Excellent service"
Cons: "bumpy ride"
Cons: "They run out of food in Business Class. Service was the same as in coach."
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "My aisle had a couple of vets who were just doing the job. Missed several rows during a beverage service. Not bad but nothing special."
Pros: "The flight attendant lady from 1st class/Business held my suit jacket for me to grab on the way out. Simple thing, but very thoughtful and kind. Love it."
Cons: "The negatives are puny compared to what made me happy in this trip. Thanks AA! Please thank that nice lady for me!"
Pros: "Got home safely (eventually)"
Cons: "Left 3.5 hours late. Promised a connection the following morning and a hotel. Arrived at SFO only to be told that they would not pay for the hotel (or make arrangements) as the delay was weather related (since when is trying to leave BEFORE a typhoon hits and being LATE a weather related issue). They gave me the option of after a 13 hour flight at 11:30pm walking over to find AA staff in another terminal to argue for payment. I was too tired. After 1 million miles on AA I will avoid them now."
Cons: "I ask many AA customer assistance this question no body help me understand. I buy a seat and a 70$ extra for a premium what does this seat offer , what am I paying 70 $ for"
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Almost 20 hours before regular flight time, received numerous texts from airline that flight will be delayed. Some were delays if 4,5 hours then changed to almost 8 hrs then back to 6 hours . Needless to say connection flight is messed up and no way of knowing what that might be until arriving at airport. Then more confusion, too almost an hour to get checked in. With connecting flight of 1.5 hours which is scary for international flight that requires going through custom then recheck luggage and TSA line again. The saving grace is captain speed up place on first leg of international flight so arrived airport 1 hour early, thus allowing enough time to connect."
