Cons: "I didn’t like being seated in the middle of two guys in the isles . I arrived 3 hours before my flight I don’t have no choice . Hopefully they would assigned us seating at least not in the middle of two men I feel discomfort ."
Pros: "I received a meal for a two leg flight of overall only 4.5 hours. The seating was nice and the food was very tasty. I love the layout of the Incheon Airport as well as the transfer experience."
Pros: "I like the Korean bibimbap food in the movie selection was good for the Korean and Asian movies although there were just a few"
Cons: "People did not follow the boarding orders everybody just lined up all at one time and the crew let them on board even though they weren't supposed to go on so even though I was supposed to board first I could board last. I didn't really like the selection for the Japanese and Korean m music with no CJ pop and Kpop like more traditional Japanese music like Koto and more traditional Korean music"
Pros: "Korean airlines had pleasant staff and provide good food."
Cons: "This was a 5 hour red-eye flight yet they only shut off the lights for 1 hour and served breakfast at 1AM. I would have prefered they prepared the cabin for people to sleep through the 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: "The service and entertainment"
Cons: "Sitting down 12 hrs it was very painful to be sitting that long. My seat eould heat up and it was uncomfortable also. I couldn't sleep during the flight"
Pros: "Food and service was exceptional."
Cons: "Boarding was a joke. They were very sure to make you feel inferior to business & first class. And then the boarding was a cluster. A Korean culture thing I guess."
Pros: "The service, food, comfort and entertainment are all VERY good on Korean Air. I was very pleased with everything."
Cons: "The only weird thing that happened was we were not able to take more then one snack. It would have been nice to have the option of more."
Pros: "Leg room, choice of food and everall services"
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: "Food and boarding."
Cons: "No comment."
Pros: "Getting preferred seating because we were sky team elite plus members"

Cons: "The service, quality of airport and new aircraft"
Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good meals, able to enjoy a few good movies"
Cons: "Can't book seat prior to check in"
Pros: "International flight should be Two luggage check in, all other flights I used they are two luggage to be check in, and one carry on, but not this Korean Air, for sure I wouldn't be using again.,"
Pros: "Boarding was like any other airline, but once you got on the plane everything was at least a step above the US Air flight I just got off of."

Pros: "Big airbus 380 is amazing fly non-stop over 15 hours across the ocean. Really nice airplane. Air attendants are all looking good and friendly. Ice cream was really good."
Cons: "No chicken meals left for me a bit disappointing. I've never had such a problem. Maybe next time have to make an order when booking ticket. Staffs fixed me a fish plate instead. My husband and I couldn't sleep tight at all. No room to straight our legs, especially his long legs."
Pros: "Service counter check in was very helpful"
Cons: "Nothing GOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!"
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."
The number of flights available from the west coast US to southeast Asia has been severely reduced to the covid pandemic so flyers do not have all the options as in the past. So I reluctantly flew on JAL despite all the negative reviews [Spoiler: the reviews were correct]. Although I was pleased with the efficiency of the flight, the sincerity of the crew, and the high quality meals, the substandard business class accommodations made the whole flight uncomfortable. The chair was small, cramped, lumpy, and offered little privacy. It by no means compares to business class on China Eastern or Singapore Airlines -- the groups I usually fly. JAL will need to significantly upgrade business class if I consider this flight in the future.
Pros: "It was a great service overall!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Great seat, cabin crew was fine."

Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."

Pros: "Friendly diligent staff"
Cons: "No announcement to acknowledge the bumpy ride"

Cons: "The food for people with special needs is horrible Most of the staff has poor communication in English on international flights"
Pros: "I was randomly upgraded for the first 10 hours of my trip to Premium economy and it was amazing. Two big hot meals served throughout the flight and plenty of drink service. lots of leg room and could recline comfortably. Flight attendants were wonderful and very helpful. Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."

Cons: "This is a kayak feedback - I thought I bought a cathay/jal flight. Well I was out of luck when I tried to fix situation. Broker in between introduce by website made it impossible to rebook flight in practice. Those website are very practical to look for flights but unless they give you the company direct you are better off switching to company site and book it there. Broker not equipped to be of any help."

Pros: "Service impeccable"
Cons: "Worst food in the industry. Barely edible."

Pros: "Flight attendants and ticket agents were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "The Japanese flight attentants were excellent. Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the other asian flight attendants. They were rude. Asked for water, she said we're not serving water only juice at this time. Asked for Consume or Dashi there weren't any. asked for diet coke they ran out. very small things but weren't able to satisfy our trip back to HNL."
Pros: "JAL is curteous and professional. They had a flight attendant dedicated to helping me and my infant daughter and provided bassinet and assitant with luggage during the flight. Totally different experience from American carriers like United who treat you like cattle. I hope I can fly with JAL again soon. They are incredible. I was super satisfied."
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: "Attention given to each passenger by flight crew."
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: "Plenty of room for economy seats. Good food. Free movies and music. Friendly service."
Pros: "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
Cons: "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."
Pros: "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."
Great flight...early arrival. Need more food options
After sitting in the overseas plane in a middle seat i got a middle seat again next to a cute baby. The plane had a very weird noise i have never experienced. It felt like the longest domestic flight I have taken!!

Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Pros: "Crew very friendly."
Cons: "I could not get wifi. Had it from GCM to SAV with no problems."
Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
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."
Cons: "Bussed from Green Bay to Chicago."
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"

Cons: "horrible food and poor service and attitude of cabin crew"

Cons: "Flight delayed by 35 minutes"
Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
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."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Recovered lost time en route."
Cons: "Delayed due to maintenance issue. Little in flight purchase options for food."
Cons: "Pre-booked Special meals were not catered to. Could have appreciated more friendly crew."
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
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: "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: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Pros: "Great seat space"
Cons: "No wifi"
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 crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."
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: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"
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."
Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."
Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."
Cons: "4:00 pm Flight from Charlotte to Richmond was cancelled; Was unable to reconnect on another flight until 11:00 pm. Waited in airport for over 8 hours. No voucher for food or beverage while waiting. Nothing was even provided on plane not even water"
