Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."
Pros: "Service & seats are great."
Cons: "The connections were a bit late, making the long trip longer!"
Pros: "Cathay and JAL Provided excellent customer service throughout the the flight. Everyone did an excellent job and went out of their way to make sure I made flights and had what I needed."
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "Service & Food"
Pros: "Attention given to each passenger by flight crew."
Cons: "Flight from Taipei to Tokyo was delayed and ultimately cancelled because of "mechanical failure". Many passengers on the flight including us had international connections through Tokyo, with only an hour between flights. It was clear we were all going to miss this connection, but in a frantic and haphazard way, the JAL crew's only solution at the gate was just to get us all on the next flight out to Tokyo (I believe via China Air) no matter what our individual final destinations were. They said "from Narita, they will handle all your connections to your final destination." This was a bizarre solution. Why not reroute us individually on other partner airlines, through other countries/cities, from this international airport in Taipei, like airlines usually do? (Also, all of this disorganized communication by the JAL crew at the gate was never translated into English, I just happen to speak a little mandarin and was able to understand what they were directing us to do). My wife was the one who searched for an alternative route on her phone (through HK instead of Tokyo) via their partner airline Cathay pacific and showed it to the JAL rep at the transfer counter, and through a series of radio and phone calls, only then did they say "there might be seats left", but they couldn't book the seats for us there. In order to make the flight, we had to sprint ourselves to a completely different terminal and concourse to another transfer counter to finally book our seats on this Cathay flight. Needless to say, our luggage did not get pulled from JAL in time to make it on the Cathay flights, so we are waiting 2-3 days for them to hopefully be found and sent to us. Overall, I was completely disappointed by the JAL staff, who didn't take responsibility or ownership of the situation, and who's solution to just fly everyone out to Tokyo, no matter our final destination, and to leave us to figure out our connections there was extremely short-sighted and irresponsible, and was a total disservice to their customers. I expect much more from this airline. On another note, we flew JAL from Boston to Tokyo, and Tokyo to Taipei: the food was terrible and food options were really subpar for an international flight, I would've expected much better from JAL and the dreamliner flight."
Pros: "The crew was very well mannered."
Cons: "Trying to find the JAL counter at Hong Kong International Airport. There is no counter for this flight since it is run by Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Flight attendants are really kind and patient."
Pros: "good selection of movies and audio, responsive and caring service crew. Plane cabin was clean and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "Passengers in front alway lowered their seats and the amount of space to move for someone over 6 feet made the flight uncomfortable. the woman in front of me was short too so I did not understand her need to push her seat back. The seats should not the ability to be lowered to the extent they were. It makes for an uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They were friendly and kind. Very helpful. Made sure I was comfortable and made sure the area was clean and safe."

Pros: "Oh this was such a great flight... service was perfect!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "attentiveness of the crew to people of multiple nationalities."
Pros: "I love that you get meals and snacks. A lot of airlines really skimp on this, and you are left miserable, hungry, and thirsty. Korean Air will bring you drinks outside the service times set. Free additional bottles of water as well. The service is excellent, the meals are good, and I absolutely love that you get slippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, and even free headphones should you forget yours. Top service! Good meal portions! I also like that you have 3-4 different meal or snack options each service. CLEAN BATHROOMS!!!! Also, the flight attendants are very polite and courteous. You never feel like they just don't care. They even help with families traveling with small children. A+ guys!"

Cons: "There wasnt anything i didnt like for this flight"
Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "I wish they still bumped people to first class when there was room :)"
Pros: "I enjoy flying Korean Air. I get great deals with great service and accommodation."
Cons: "It was a late direct flight from Bali to Seoul. The flight was for a 0120 departure, and about 7 hours long. For the flight being a very late departure and both locations being around the same timezone (1 hour difference) I feel as if the lights were left on for too long, over an hour after departure, and then turned on too early, 2 hours prior to landing. Too improve comfort I would suggest to begin service upon takeoff and turning the lights off immediately after, and turning them on an hour before landing to conduct service. Better yet, if possible, conduct service with the lights off and individuals that require additional lighting may use their individual light. I believe, and witnessed in my area, a majority of personnel that just wanted to sleep during these flight hours."
Pros: "Top notch service and food in economy on a 14 hour flight! The flight attendants are wonderful! I wouldn't fly with any other airline!"

Cons: "Lack of food option for vegetarian"
Pros: "Good food (for an airline) and decent red wine selection."
Pros: "Staff is so friendly. Amazing legroom in economy, comfy seats. The food was great. They even offered packets with tooth brush and tooth paste. The plane's cleanliness is also stellar. I took a 14.5 hour flight that felt like a 5 hour flight. Korean Air's attention to detail sets the bar for all airlines"
Cons: "Nothing negative what so ever."
Pros: "Nice in-flight movie options. Friendly staff. Plenty to drink and enough to eat."
Cons: "Meal was chicken and rice and plenty to drink: water, coffee, soda. There was also pickled vegetables and tofu, but I was satisfied not eating those. Numerous intermittent announcements: [The usual preflight safety briefing, the mid-flight seat-belt and arrival eta announcements, the mid-flight turbulence and temperature comments, the customs-forms hand-outs, the duty-free inflight shopping opportunity announcement, the eventual apologetic conclusion of the duty-free, inflight shopping opportunity] together spoiled my calculated chance of finishing a short movie."
Pros: "I liked the spacious seating, up to date entertainment and snacks, plus food even though a short flight. I found the male stewards on this flight a lot more helpful I'm not saying the women weren't as well. Gender balance is good. Overall everytime I have flown Korean Air the service has been exceptionally pleasant and I feel confident and safe. Knock on wood I hope they keep striving for excellence and not lose it along the way like so many other airlines over the years."
Cons: "The constant interruptions of messages while watching movies. All the lights along the ceiling of the plane seem to be a lot brighter on day and night flights. Softer lighting be a little bit more comforting to the eyes, besides don't each seat have its own light source if extra lighting is needed!"
Cons: "too little leg room."
Pros: "Staff very helpful in every way."
Cons: "Flight change ruined whole trip. Return flight is diverted to another country. Overall it was an awful experience"

Cons: "Not took off on time. No explanation or apologies from the captain."
Pros: "Timeliness Appearance of crew. More leg room. Variety of entertainment"
Cons: "It appears the flight attendants catered more for Koreans than others. On several occasions they would ask Korean passengers if they wanted coffee, tea or wine. They looked at me and deliberately ignored me. This happened on Flight from Houston to Manila. From Hong Kong to Seoul and especially from Seoul to Houston. I had to ask thrice for a head phone before I got one. I was wide awake."
Pros: "Friendly crew members, great food, and lots of entertainment choices"
Pros: "in a relatively short flight I was surprised of the quality of the service, the entertainment and how small details were taken care of."
Pros: "Wonderful international flights - a bit more leg room from SFO to Seoul than Seoul to Hong Kong. Generous meals, snacks and beverages. Best service economy international flight!"
Cons: "I did not like having to rush through the transfer from Hong Kong to Seoul to SFO. customs in Seoul can be slow. wish their baggage limitations carried the same from initial flight to the transfers."

Cons: "Well they could have given me a free upgrade but I can live with a row to myself, kidding. When the ticket counter opens the agents stand in front of the podiums and bow and say a greeting (I think it was in Japanese). They need to get their timing better. So not much."
Pros: "No issues, waiting area clean and comfortable. Crew efficientand pleasant."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Cons: "Better seats and food. More water please"
Pros: "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best."
Cons: "Purchased tickets through Kayak on ANA with confirmation. Bumped to United after confirmation. Although I realize both companies are Star Alliance, the bait & switch is unacceptable & I would NOT have purchased these tickets for United. Flight had much more turbulence than my experience on ANA which is why I refuse to fly any other airlines. Will recommend against Kayak to everyone I know."

Pros: "Very clean plane. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. I would love to fly again with ANA. Terrific entertainment system and movies."

Pros: "Very pleasant. I upgraded to economy plus so that was a bonus."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the meals were pretty good"
Cons: "Every time I'm on an airplane I'm seated next to several really sick people.. I know this isn't something you can control but it really reduces the comfort any healthy individual can have. I also didn't like the really long delay for the baggage after the flight. The on flight movie selection had not changed on the return trip which was 16 days later."

Cons: "Short flight, needed to purchase food"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time. The plane was nice too, nicer than most other airlines. The seats were roomy enough, as good as economy can be. Food was one of the best. The movies were pretty new which is always a plus. The crew was awesome. I get motion sickness whenever I ride anything, be it planes, buses, trains or boats, and the fact that the flight attendants kept checking on me put my mind at ease."

Pros: "Very efficient, very fast boarding. Crew was polite."

Cons: "Poor staff"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Good vegetarian selection of food. Polite and friendly crew."

Cons: "Honestly nothing perfect Airline Definitely I will use the Emirate at airline again and again"
Pros: "Everything was very good!"
Pros: "The plane was not full and I had three seats to myself, so my very positive review is not totally fair. However, on a relative basis in comparison to other airlines, Emirates is the best on which I have flown."
Pros: "Comfy seats with good legroom, huge entertainment selection, free alcoholic beverages!"
Cons: "My connecting flight (booked through Emirates but operated by JetBlue) was inexplicably cancelled with 24h notice. Emirates did a good job finding me an alternative flight but somehow did not get my bags on my new flight even though the woman at the counter made a special call to "ensure" that my bags would come with me. Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."

Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Everything was Great !!"

Cons: "The 777 is a bit cramped compared to A-380"
Cons: "We were not able to print the online checking ahead of time, so we had to stand in a lot of very long lines. The person printed the wrong boarding passes because they didn't know many details about domestic and international flights. There was also confusion about checking in the luggage between the domestic and international flights. A boarding pass from Dubai to Ahembadvad was not given at the New York airport."
Pros: "Lovely aircraft loads of space"
Pros: "surprisingly the high definition 17inch screens and the plenty of movies was essential"
Pros: "Movie starts as soon as seated"
Cons: "No Emirate staff presented to due with the 20+ hours delay. Just sent their representatives who are not powerful to make decisions and at the end we have many questions not answered. Eg. Any earlier reconnect flights? Any alternative airlines? What is the checkout time of the compensation hotel? Any meal compensation if not staying at their hotel? Etc."

Pros: "After a tiring 14 hr stop over in Dubai, I boarded my flight to Boston from Dubai at around 3 in the morning. I don't know when I fell asleep because I did not even wake up for the takeoff. The crew let me be and when I did wake up 5 hrs later they provided me with something to eat because I had missed the meal served earlier. The even closed my window shade as not to have the early morning sun disturb me. I call that great service."
Pros: "was jet blue and average"
Cons: "Flights are not on time with random cancellations."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was mostly good."
Cons: "Our cabin was very warm and seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Plenty of films."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot."
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage. I have to wait two days for it's return."
Pros: "Hostes are great"
Pros: "Comfortable seat Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The plane had no room to stretch inside. The space was very confined and cramped. Not good when your traveling for 10hrs in the air. I also didn't like the food or the portions. Bad selection of music."
Pros: "All the stuff very kind"
Cons: "I don’t like the airport service for well chairs"
Pros: "My languages are all damaged."
Cons: "My languages are all damaged"
Cons: "long lay over"
Pros: "One sign had row 27> The other sign had 28 >"
Cons: "Mass confusion resulting in slow boarding."
Cons: "Always 1.5 hour late. The airport management does not care about international flight delays!!!"
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Cons: "Redundant security checks, even at the gate area!"
Pros: "Over all v good"
Cons: "Why prizes change at the time of booking?"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Cons: "The food wasn’t good and the service the palet wasn’t very good"
Pros: "Attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The seats were so close. It was like riding on a transit bus. An 11 hour flight would be nice with just a few more inches between seats.. I don't expect real comfort in economy class but just two more inches would have been nice."
Cons: "Priority boarding was messed-up - no queue discipline was even attempted by the gate staff. The business class seats were uncomfortable and not comfortable to sleep in. The footrest was not long enough and the feet were dangling in the air. The blanket and bedding was provided almost 3 hours after take-off Worst of all was baggage handling. Our luggage was severely damaged. The handle to the suitcases was torn off. In addition the bags and the contents were wet when we received them in Boston. IT had been raining in Istanbul and it seems the bags were left out in the open. I've been trying to get Turkish to repair the torn-off handles but I'm constantly hitting a wall. I have filed a claim but the support staff sends extremely brief denials with no explanation."
Cons: "Haphazard boarding"
Pros: "I traveled solo with 2 toddlers. It was obviously not the best flight I’ve had but the staff was super helpful. The flight attendant got me the changing table ready every time I had to change my daughter. And always they helped me to stay with one of my kids when I had to take the other one to the bathroom. They were really kind and offered many kids related stuff (headphones, baby care kit, kids travel kit, etc.) Plus the food was amazing as always in Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "The crew was not very warm and/or welcoming - they were short, impersonal, and kind of cold"
Cons: "This’s the worse airlines that I ever use in my life, in my way back to Boston I get to the airport 2 and half hours before my flight, it was so crowded outside the door, so I didn’t get to check in till like an hour and 10 minutes, Guess what! They didn’t let me in because they close the gate they said?? They have me payed for another thicket to I take the next flight They are so weird, even when you called the customers service they will do nothing for you, like they don’t live in our planet!! Trust me stay away from this turkish airlines"
Pros: "Excellent food Friendly staff who are willing to help"
Pros: "It seemed like an old model airplain, didn't get enough space. It was so tight."
Cons: "Seats were terrible!"
Pros: "It's all great. Recommended"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "I like the food which were served, I like everything overal"
Pros: "Crew was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The flight was very comfortable. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "As a business class passenger I wish our boarding process could have been better and perhaps separated from coach."
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "I liked the movie options and the fact that we were given blankets and pillows."
Cons: "I was told in Vienna that I would be allowed to carry my Kindle onto my flight from Istanbul to the USA. I was not able to and had to wait in a very long line both in Istanbul and in the US. I understand the change in regulations, but it is important that all employees of Turkish airlines are aware of the change. We also waited one hour on the runway in Istanbul. Additionally, there was a small section of the plane which received food roughly an hour later than the rest of the plane. I was on this section, and was uncomfortably hungry by the time I received food."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has an excellent entertainment system"
Cons: "They used to have more legroom"
Cons: "Not enough room between rows. Can't recline seat if table behind is open."
Pros: "LOVED the attention that was given to passengers that wanted/needed rest."
Cons: "Looked into purchasing 1st class because flight was 10hrs & it was insanely expensive. The poor peoples cusions need some up dating, they are uncomfortable & worn."
Cons: "It was an hour late arriving!"
Pros: "Because it was my first time on Turkish Airlines I was a bit apprehensive but the experience was very positive. The crew was friendly, the service good, the food very good and the entertainment excellent. All my flights left on time and arrive on time or earlier. The airplane, an Airbus 300, was new and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process at Istanbul was a bit chaotic but the flight left on time. I guess the airport personnel knew what they were doing. Istanbul airport is big and modern. There a lot of nice shops, including Duty Free. One annoying thing was the large number of airport employees using these motorized transports, I.e. wheelchairs, bipeds, tricycles, etc, going at high speed. If you don't get out of their way they will run you over!"
Pros: "Liked the food and service"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight. The meals were relatively tasty, and the in-flight entertainment was fun."
Cons: "Having been impressed on recent overseas flight using Turkish Airlines, I thought the standards they had previously practiced would have been implemented. Unfortunately, there were several customer service disappointments, from forgetting to include dessert with my and my daughter's meals to being made to wait nearly an hour for the interactive screen to be reset. And not a sincere apology or effort to resolve the problem."
Pros: "I paid for WiFi but the service didn't work perfectly, I wanted to switch device,which you have to logout first. The button didn't work"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines Lift off. Finally after the hours of waiting, standing, passport controlling we are on board. Blessed air conditioning freezes the cheery rainbow seats Tossed back with painful whiplash the nineties surround us again. Enter to find the changing table Dirty diapers and wipes for tiny asses Moan, itch, pick, cry, kick, kick, scream Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy Mommy Decadent. Familial entitlement on a budget. Sit down to stares. Without doing anything So begins the ogling Not for beauty or glasses But because of his right to look in any direction he pleases. The drink cart comes by Soft drinks only Stuttered English behind Only a sweet belch of coca cola Released, bubbling an unfettered expression shared across all languages. (but do they share my disgust?) Oh to fly, to find a cab to drive in the big city."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "I am not a picky person to me every thing was great taking into consideration that you cant satisfy every one."
Cons: "Not every one can follow the speed of the way you announce things, remember your flight take people from different continents in the world Also not having some where to sit while waiting for the information of which gate to go it is very challenging. The AC was almost killing the older people not me but the older lady sat next to me complained all the time but it didn't work. I know it is the challenge difficult to solve however you can give them some advise. Find a private space to talk with sick people because some people might not be comfortable to talk in front of every one."
Pros: "Cabin crew was courteous though they couldn't fix the issues."
Cons: "My seat would not recline. Some mechanical problem. Only beef meals were available, no chicken."
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."
Cons: "Frequent announcements"
Pros: "friendly crew excellent service good food"
Pros: "good food, good service, comfortable large selection of personal entertainment personal toiletries friendly service usb ports on every seat"
Cons: "movies kept freezing or skipping even after restarting computers. slow boarding/gate security check in Istanbul caused significant delay"
Pros: "I was impressed. It’s like ANA run by native New Yorkers - newish planes, really good food (including chefs running around in white uniforms with the tall hats!), solid in-flight entertainment, and no nickel-and-diming on drinks, but the staff can be cold. I would definitely fly again, especially if the alternatives are United or American."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines' hub airport, Ataturk International in Istanbul, is a chaotic, surly mess. Part of this relates to the fact that it is simply too small for the volume of traffic it handles, but I also believe airport management deserves some blame. Problems include: * Most arriving Turkish Airlines flights empty out on the tarmac, and then you are bussed to the terminal, adding at least 20 minutes to the process. Some departing flights to North America also require bussing from a distant gate. * Rescreening is inconsistent - once it was some guy standing by a door giving a cursory glance to passports of transfer passengers. Another time, hundreds of people going through a full laptops-out-of-bags-take-off-your-belts xray procedure. * Signage is terrible. Arrows pointing where to go are insufficient (such as exiting the international terminal from the transfer area) and most gates do not automatically show the next flight scheduled to depart. * Gates are shown on the main displays only 2 hours in advance max, and even then seem to change — I saw several people miss their flights for this reason. * Not enough toilets in the terminal and lounges. * Airport staff and concessions workers are surly. I would like to stress that Turkish Airlines (the dominant carrier at Ataturk) is actually pretty good when it comes to the flights themselves. But the airport experience really brings down the brand, in my opinion. My advice to those who have a long layover: Spend $25-$40 dollars to hang out in one of the paid lounges, which have more space, free food, Wi-Fi, etc. You need an oasis in a place like Ataturk."
