Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was polite, responsive and friendly. The food was very good and served hot. For a flight to Japan, I thought $1,000 round trip direct from Boston was an excellent price considering you got 2 complete meals and additional snacks. Much more than I expected. Would fly Japan Airlines again."
Cons: "I don't think there was much that could have been improved. The seats were as comfortable as could be expected when paying an economy price."

Pros: "Crew was attentive, food tasted great, the whole experience wasn't anything like the American style companies that try to shake you down for every penny and still get get ripped off."
Cons: "The whole experience was great for flying economy long distance. I will 100% be looking for Japan air as an option for any flight I do in the future."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."
Cons: "At check-in counter in MNL, the JAL agent mistakenly told me that I don't need to claim my bag and re-check at DFW before heading to final destination MEM. Food wasn't as good as previous JAL flights earlier this year and last year. That said, it's still better than other airlines."

Cons: "I needed to change the date of the flight and JAL refused to change it. that sort of made it a bad flight since I couldn't take it."

Pros: "The crew is outstanding. A girl two seats away from me barfed and two attendants were there immediately with a bag, cleaning wipes, etc. They are very friendly and patient with passengers. The next best part was the comfort. I got a good amount of sleep on my nine-hour flight."
Cons: "The movie selection and meals were not bad, but I've had better on other airlines."

Pros: "Wonderful crew"

Pros: "the Level of service and the Japanese culture was evident at every moment of this flight. Our boarding process was delayed by almost an hour, and it felt like every 5-10 minutes we had an update as to what was going on and why, then passports were checked early, and service was top notch."
Cons: "In my perfect world, we would have updates way in advance if there are mechanical or airport issues but that is a slim to none chance. That is about it. Everything else was amazing!"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and cheerful. The beverage selection was very good and the food was decent. The on board entertainment is some of the best around. The boarding efficiency of JAL is the best I have seen."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."

Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."

Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."

JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."

Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very small seats"

Cons: "Nothing but headaches and made me throw out my $100 e cigarette that I checked under the plane half way through my trip from new york to vietnam.

Cons: "Due to bad weather and flooding, I could not get to the airport for my flight. I called Just Fly and they said there was nothing they could do. I had to pay an extra $350 to get my flight rescheduled. I thought that due to bad weather, customers can get flight rescheduled at no extra cost? As soon as I rebooked my flight, both airport in Houston closed anyways. So is this still my fault and did I have to still pay an extra $350??"

Cons: "It was very hot journey, as the air conditioner seemed not working properly. Hope this should be improved in future flight."

Pros: "Once we got underway, the trip was average."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay which is annoying to begin with. They could have boarded us later but they DEFINITELY could have been more polite about it. They announce very rudely that if we didn't like the situation, we should just get off. It's a 12 hour trip. A little courtesy would not hurt."

Pros: "Food and services"

Pros: "Service Politness of staff"
Cons: "Boarding at the gate Shuttle from gate to plane was too crowded Ascending to aircraft was almost a stampede"

Pros: "Both segments Houston to Narita and Narita to Vietnam were pleasant. The seats are spacious, food was fine (nothing exquisite but good enough!). Flight attendants are very attentive. Waster and snacks were provided between meals."
Cons: "It was difficult to understand English announcements on board. Also there wasn’t adequate instructions in Vietnamese. Majority of passengers are Vietnamese family with small children. My suggestion is that instructions in Vietnamese should be made more often to avoid chaos particularly when deplane."

Pros: "The food, choices of entertainment, and the crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were helpful, attentive and nice. There were vacant seats so i was able to change to a more comfortable seat."
Cons: "The food was horrible. The selections for movies is quite limited."

Pros: "Very uncomfortable chairs. Food was gross, tasteless and dry. Crew is excellent."

Cons: "It was a packed flight. I'm assuming that given this, I could not change seats. While the ANA staff were helpful, I myself had trouble on this flight and became unwell. I sought help from ANA upon landing and received it."

Pros: "Prepackaged sandwiches were so so. Crew were friendly and helpful. Leg room was pretty good. Bathroom had a lot of amenities."
Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."

Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."

Pros: "Nice short flight. Houston is easy to navigate. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "They didnt want to board my twins and I early so we blocked the aisle as i got them sorted. I had to sit over the aisle from my children as it was a 2 2 seating but the staff didnt seem to pursue where their mother was even though i was 1 row back. They didn't need me but i thought they should have at least enquired as to where the parent was of 2 11 yr olds. They were also curt trying to rush us off the flight as my daughter was trying to locate a lost item as we arrived. She has limited sight and we need time to get off and to find things.... given she has lost an iPad, and very expensive reading glasses and other things on the trips that span 24 - 36 hrs."

Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."
Cons: "Food was too smelly. Good quality, but airplane food cannot be smelly or it get really unpleasant inside the cabin. Flight attendant need to learn and practice English. Very difficult to understand."

Pros: "The airline offer a lot of food on the plane including Hagen Daz ice cream. The service was excellent, flight attendances were polite and always smile. The seat was very comfortable!"

Pros: "Timely departure/arrival, great flight crew, good food, excellent ride, clean cabin."

Pros: "The crew are awesome. Flight is on time. The journey was comfortableand safe. No delays"

Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."

Pros: "The crew is awesome and food is quite good"
Cons: "Seat is terrible it's more like domestic flight than international, boarding is terrible because we have to take a bus by standing from terminal to flight"

Pros: "the service were fantastic. the flight attendants were very courteous; offering food & snacks and drinks non-stopped. overall, the services offered were great."
Cons: "the temperature inside was overwhelmingly hot made it impossible to relax. in a crowded airplane, such environment is perfect for customers to acquire upper respiratory infection once they have to share the air with others. please adjust the air temperature. thanks"

Pros: "The problem is not that I missed the flight, as I am currently in my way to my destination. The issue was the poor support, I mean is ok I know I didn't make it, but I don't want to hwar what I already know, tell me what can be done... waited 7 hours for someone available... the phone at the counter is useless"
Cons: "What about next time you put more instructions on the counter so that we don't waste hours trying to find a way to contact you..."

Pros: "Lots and lots of meals and snacks. I was worried it would be an issue on such a long flight but every time I took a nap, they came back with food or snacks!"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "the food, service, and efficiency"

Pros: "Didn't realize I'm flying united airlines. Nowhere on my itinerary was it mentioned. The whole time I thought I'm with ANA all the way"
Cons: "The flight itself was good but booking with bayaan, never again. I have used kayak many times but for the first time since I booked vayama changed me flight 6 times. They also could have mentioned my first 2 legs of my flight was with united. I tried to check in online thru ANA, couldn't go thru with many attempts until finally I called and the agent mentioned to check in thru united."

Cons: "Choices of food."

Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."

Pros: "I liked that each seat had a foot rest. The food was very good you get a haaggen dazs ice cream during one of the meals. The food wasn't filling but that's to be expected so bring snacks if your own. The flight was smooth no issues and the flight attendants were very attentive. Had a tv with movies and the personal tv also had games like a game system."
Cons: "I disliked that the seating did not have its own personal air. At times I would get hot."

Pros: "Flight crew were amazing! Very hospitable and attentive."
Cons: "WiFi was not very good. Connection was very slow and they charge $20 per 100 MB used (instead of one flat fee)."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, the food was pretty good for airplane food, and the movie selection was very good."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Flight attendants are always to try to speak in Chinese."

Pros: "The price was right. We arrived on time."
Cons: "On a 17 hour flight, people need water, and getting that from the flight crew wasn't easy. They were rushed, unpleasant, and the food was worse than I've seen on a plane in years. The entertainment system too, was very old and lacking compared to newer systems."

Pros: "Because of a long flight, Eva should provide more food in between"
Cons: "Satisfaction"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"

Cons: "Cleaning the restroom area more often for international flighywiuld be great"

Cons: "2 restroom out of order flight bound tpe."

Pros: "I fly Eva at least once a year. Find flights in Asia delayed often but reasonable handled by the airline."
Cons: "Website and app are a joke. Quirky at best. Hard to figure out if it works. Bothers me a big airline cannot have a decent website."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "The airlines limits carry-on luggages and reinforce it to the extend that it annoys many passengers. Make the rules very clear to the people before we arrive. People abuse the wheelchair policies although they are physically fine."

Cons: "Comfort, I Need to get to where I can fly first class"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "They treat everyone so well"

Pros: "I enjoy the friendly flight attendants and the overall flight experience. I love the fact they leave at 1am and arrive in Manila around noon. I always tell my friends to fly EVA."
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "It took 1 hour for checking in in CDG 1 terminal. I missed the next light because of the delayed take off. And they change my ticket to Thai airways which is the fastest from Taipei to next destination."

Cons: "I was a bit surprised about their carry-on bag weight limit- a mere 7 kilos?"

Pros: "I liked that it was orderly when checking in and unto the plane. The pilot kept us informed of departure and arrival time, how long we had to our destination and keeping us safe when it was turbulent. Asking everyone to buckle down and for us to remain in our seats. Even the crew who was serving had to sit down."
Cons: "The crew who were attending us, did not smile or even made eye contact. They seemed like robots while serving us. After we had our first meal, many of us went to sleep, but they did not come around to offer us water or any type of beverage or snack. We had to go to the back of the plane or ask then to get water and snacks. The snacks were lacked variety and quality."

Pros: "The attentiveness of the crew, the food & the amenities in-flight"
Cons: "I was in the middle seat & it was a hassle every time I go to the restroom esp when the flight was a long one. I preferred an aisle seat but none was available even when I checked-in early online."

Pros: "Departure time"
Cons: "Meal was not good at all."

Pros: "Very much"

Pros: "That they speak English really well"

Pros: "I came 32 mins before the flight because I went home to get my passport. They said they close the door like 20-30 mins which mean they were able to board everybody in just -2 to 8 minutes only. Amazing. No other flight available for one week because it’s christmas season. I’m not going to the detail of not having my passport (I never left my passport before). They are cheaper from competitors for a reason. No heart here at all. Accident is not acceptable."
Cons: "What to like? No comment yet, first time “to try”"

Pros: "eva airlines has the best flights and routes to Vietnam. the best cabin service clean airplanes and nice cabin attendees"
Cons: "united airlines China airlines"

Pros: "Very professional and efficient Crew as always, horrible seat comfort,"
Cons: "there was absolutely no room to even lay down your arm beside you. This was for the flight segment from Taiwan To Vancouver. An almost 11 hour flight. Narrow tight seat I would never ride EVA air for this segment again. Terrible !"

Pros: "The crew was excellent. Easily the best I have ever seen"
Cons: "16hr flight could've used better movies and some snacks"

Pros: "Enough food and flight attendants are very courteous. Offer water and snacks periodically. Washrooms are kept clean. Entertainment has a couple of new movies, but otherwise lots of repeats."
Cons: "For the overnight flight, they crank the AC up, like way up, which is good and helps you sleep IF you have a good blanket. The blanket provided is kind of short (unless you're short) so bring your own. I brought my own microfiber which fits in my back pack and I can pull it out. It covers a lot more area and so I was super comfortable."

Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, crew very nice, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Plane is very cold and expensive charges for wifi."

Pros: "Got to choose my seats next to emergency exits to have the extra leg room"

Pros: "Everything. Good food. Good drinks. Good entertainment. Loved it."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, and the food was outstanding."
Cons: "The wine list was a bit limited."

Pros: "Cabin cree was helpful"
Cons: "Boarding need to be in order with back boarded first followed by front. Painful boarding at Houston and Istanbul both."

Pros: "Turkish continues to go above-and-beyond to provide all of its passengers with a quality experience. Meals were actually good (I opt for the Vegetarian offering) and Economy seats are perfectly fine."
Cons: "Both ground staff and inflight crews border on rude, but I choose to believe it's a cultural thing and not a corporate or personal failing. Really, it's a coldness more than anything. No warmth or empathy. Planes are showing their age, particularly in the seat monitors. Screens have dead zones with inoperative icons. Also, quite a few seats were literally falling apart. But, when you fly to more countries than any other airline, some wear-and-tear is to be expected."

Cons: "They dont give water when u ask for it, everything else was good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I sent my old grandparents trusted them to take care of them but they were treated very badly and had a horrible trip"

Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "My seat."

Pros: "The friendly people and the ease of flying alone so far away."

Pros: "Love the food, service and movies."

Pros: "Nothing. How can anyone overbook a flight and want the passengers to pay the price. Food is horrible. Will never book with this airline again"
Cons: "Everything. Customer service is horrible"

Cons: "space little cramped but maybe same with other airlines in economy."

Pros: "Everything went perfect."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The ground and flight crews were outstanding. Boarding was easy in Houston. I got to see the flight crew handle a medical emergency and saw that they were well prepared, efficient, and concerned. The food and entertainment were fine. I felt like the seat space was better than on British which I often use. I had an empty seat next to me however. I was impressed that the flight crew moved a taller gentleman to a premium (exit) seat to accommodate his extra tall stature. He didn't ask, but they wanted him to be comfortable."
Cons: "The airport in Istanbul is pretty manageable. They changed the gate on us twice for the connection, which meant a bit of walking. But the crowd was pretty manageable compared to LHR."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food quality and robust Entertainment options"
Cons: "1. Economy seat rows too close together making seat reclines very intrusive. 2. Also, flight attendants did not request people to sit up during meals which made eating very difficult in my case. 3. Bathrooms were very dirty during the last 1/3 of the flight and remained so, including no toilet paper and paper towels. 4. No second serving for refreshment beverages during flight."

Cons: "Alaways delays"

Pros: "Paying only half of what other USA airlines offered we had a one stop trip from (IAH) Houston to (TLV) Tel Aviv and were served two meals with offerings of other food if needed. I don't know what was served but it was good yet very different from what we eat in Texas. Then we had a 2 1/2 hour layover in (IST) Istanbul Turkey which gave us plenty of time to get off the plane, shuttle to the terminal gate then walk around the airport for about an hour before heading to the next gate for our connecting flight. The crew was very pleasant and the flight very smooth."
Cons: "The landing in Instanbul Turkey was very poorly done, by far the worst I've ever experienced but the rest of the flight and connecting Turkish Airlines flight to Tel Aviv was great. The seats are very cramped but not much different than any other economy seat I've had on any other USA airline. The price of the ticket more than made up for the seat."

Pros: "crew was wonderful."
Cons: "leg room slightly tight for 12 hour flight."

Pros: "The flight crew was great. The ride was smooth"
Cons: "The food was ok....Not an option for vegetarian"

Pros: "The crew was good and courteous. The food was pretty good.great entertainment options."
Cons: "Could not access the wifi."

Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "all of it"

Pros: "Food was good , enertainment and comfort was fine"
Cons: "The hostess was not friendly at all. Seemed to be inconvenienced by every request Also requested a veggie meal but was not avaible"

Cons: "The country"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "The food was rubbish. I ordered Hindu veg meal. The food was just plain and there was no glavors at all."

Pros: "The cabin crew were awesome."
Cons: "My trip from Houston to Istanbul was awesome and smooth."

Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat. Very narrow walk way to lavatory."

Cons: "After ordering Asian vegetarian meal, I got pasta. That was disappointing"

Pros: "They went above and beyond to ensure comfort"

Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, food was ok . Staff were friendly"
Cons: "The service was a bit relaxed, with kids I had a little hard time getting attention promptly"

Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The food is not so good."

Pros: "That I heard great things about Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Staff at the gate and on the plane were rude. At the gate, I asked if there was an isle seat or an emergency row seat available (because I have long legs and long feet) and he said he would check and see. Well, he failed to inform me if any of the seats were available, so I sat in a window seat to Istanbul and a middle seat to Venice. I had to pay $160 for an extra bag to Venice. I asked if the airline allowed military members to check a third bag for free, I was laughed at, and told that US military members get charged more because we're not in the Turkish military. So as you can see, this trip started off horribly. My flight attendant seemed like she was having a horrible day because her attitude and customer service was bad."

Pros: "In-flight service (food and entertainment) and crew are excellent."
Cons: "I think boarding process in Houston was a hectic and slightly disorganized."

Pros: "Crew was amazing, food was incredible, service awesome, awesome airline"
Cons: "The cushioning on 777-300 is too thin and not so comfortable for such a long trip but that is the price we have to pay for not being in business class"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The entertainment quite rich."
Cons: "Since the flight was very crowded, they didn't let me bring in the cabin my garment bag, I had to stuff it in the suitcase."

Pros: "The seats not very comfortable. The staf not friendly at all."

Cons: "Too long"

Pros: "great!"

Pros: "I look forward to flying with Turkish Airlines in the future. Thanks for a good trip."

Pros: "Good chow, decent beer, and stewardesses that can walk straight down the aisle!"

Pros: "Good food and excellent service from the crew."

Pros: "Food and tv"
Cons: "Crew was a little bit rude"

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 . Also the entertainment was quite good . They have big tv screen for each seat and have all sorts of shows and movies from international to hollywood . And have games for kids ... Overall i was very pleased with my flight ."

Pros: "The people were very nice. Polite and friendly. The entertainment was good as well. I was impressed with their vegetarian food, for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process and the crew handing out drinks and food seemed unorganized. Not sure if they were understaffed. However, they still remained nice even though you could tell they were stressed."

Pros: "I liked the food and the vegetarian options. Also the the movies were updated and it had a lot to choose from"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Food quality degraded compared to early years. I have been seeing the very same food for couple of yours- tasteless bland food did not have the bridge, we had to use buses at Istanbul airport"

Pros: "Got home."
Cons: "Kept us in line to board for 30 minutes. then announced a delay. No service due to short bumpy flight. Probably nobody's fault but..."

Pros: "Good tasting food"
Cons: "Slow crew with no flexibility at all. They did not respond to any "custom" request.(e.g. milch for the kids.)"
