Airline reviews

Pros: "The seats in Economy are larger than normal airlines and had extra leg room. My partner is 6ft2in and he sat comfortable, even when the people in front reclined. The staff was so polite and helpful. I will definitely fly JAL again!"

Pros: "People were friendly - from check in right through to disembarkment."

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

Pros: "Dinner (coach) was pretty good. Earphone, screen for entertainment are very nice. I liked the charging slots for each seat. Crew is polite and friendly."
Cons: "The second meal (light lunch, i think) had dry shredded chicken."

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."

Pros: "Courteous and professional flight attendants"
Cons: "Long gap between meals. At least they could have provided juice or snacks in between meals"

Pros: "Awefull I did get to use my ticket"
Cons: "Japan could have helped me change my name in my reservation to match my passport"

Pros: "Super cheap roundtrip flight. Reliable airline. Flight even came with a meal both ways. Kind staff. Good service."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "JAL always have good services."

Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."

Pros: "Flight attendants provide fantastic service with a smile. Business class meals are top notch."

Pros: "The flight was normal and without problems. As a frequent traveler throughout Asia that is always welcomed."

Pros: "The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and service oriented. I can only say wonderful things about them."

Pros: "Plane was spotlessly clean, smelled nice, bathrooms also very clean and had toothbrushes and toothpaste. I requested the vegetarian meal and it was the best airline food I have ever eaten Flight crew was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working for Japan Airlines. I don't see that very often on any domestic US air carriers. I highly recommend Japan Air."
Cons: "Headset was too big for me and kept skipping back."

Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."

Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"
Cons: "the only thing was this flight was delayed and we missed the flight at LAX, but JAL reserved a hotel room near by for us so that we were able to refresh ourselves and relax till the next flight. thank you JAL!"

Cons: "Some turbulence awoke us midway through the overnight flight."

Cons: "All passengers were onboard but the captain said that we need to go out and change to another airplane at different gate too (note: the changes made after passengers on board)"

Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Crew helpful and willing to please."
Cons: "The food and overall service amenities are lacking in JAL. My flight was 8 hours and only one meal was served and one snack. The meals themselves are nothing special or enjoyable."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Can't say because I was satisfied w/ my flight"

Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"

Pros: "Everything! JAL ground crew, airline crew, their service is excellent. The interior of the airplane looked nice."
Cons: "It could use more games for children"

Pros: "Was blown away by the food on my flight to Osaka. Can't imagine better. Would definitely recommend and fly JAL again."

Cons: "The gate is keep changing ... It was 3 times changed."

Pros: "The crew did a good job in announcing the arrival of the flight and where we are at and how far we are flying overall did an excellent job"
Cons: "If they had orange juice lol"

Cons: "Keep it up"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No drink/snack service because of shorter flight times."

Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience. We were not offered a choice of seats when we checked in and had to wait at the gat"

Pros: "The crew was polite and attentive the entertainment was good. Every thing else was pretty disappointing. The bathrooms onboard were pretty Dirty. The flight was delayed and no overhead baggage space. For such a long and delayed flight they gave me one pack of cheez it. Terrible value for money :("
Cons: "More snacks considering the delay. Maybe even a some sort of credit for my time wasted."

Pros: "Crew was nice and funny"
Cons: "The free messaging WiFi didn’t work for me"

Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"

Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"

Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"

Cons: "Healthier snacks instead of just candy and cookies... an apple for example would be great."

Pros: "Snacks were good. On time."

Pros: "Seatback tv."
Cons: "Stewardess berated a man for leaving his backpack on the floor in front of him rather than politely addressing the issue. She told him you know better than that and don’t ever do that again. It was totally uncalled for."

Cons: "Crew did not offer me/ another passenger the complimentary drink/ snack. And made a face when I asked for a drink later."

Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."

Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "They waited for me as I was late"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage"

Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was great"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and the iPod chargers were broke in 2 of our 3 seat row"

Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."

Pros: "It was a great flight."

Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."

Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"

Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."

Pros: "Many thanks to Delta for changing our flight at an even exchange to get us out of Florida before the storm. I will fly delta again."
Cons: "Old plane to and from San Antonio. New planes make for a more comfortable ride"

Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."

Pros: "Staff was courteous, flight uneventful but that's a good thing!"
Cons: "Long flight, difficult to sit that long (3 hrs plus)"

Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"

Pros: "it was great experience"

Pros: "As the flight was over two hours late and a runway at JFK was shut down I opted for a full refund from Delta as I would have been at my destination less than 24 hours. Kayak & Delta was good keeping me informed of changes including the 5 gate changes"

Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."

Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Pros: "everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots"
Cons: "everything was very ordinary so cannot complain"

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."

Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."

Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We disliked that our baggage was lost and we do not have it two days later."

Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."

Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "Our layover from Pittsburgh ended up being quite short. I was impressed that our baggage will made it on to the plane in time for take off."

Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"

Cons: "Bigger seats."

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."

Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."

Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"

Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"

Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"

Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."

Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"

Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "Very friendly staff"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."

Pros: "Wonderful"

Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was great even though there was no food or beverage service. They were very sweet to my 16 month old son and even have him a Flight Crew pin!"
Cons: "The air was stuffy even with the overhead vent on. The seats weren’t super comfortable."

Cons: "The boarding announcement speaker was broken, so the flight attendants needed to yell out."

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "No hickups"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't working on this plane"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."

Pros: "I love the video before take off on AA flights. I also, enjoyed the crew and frequently being offered beverages!"
Cons: "AA is either on time or very delayed. This flight was on time but I fly AA often and that’s not always the case."

Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."

Pros: "Emergency row seating is great for really tall skinny people. Plenty of legroom but seat width by no means helpful."

Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."

Cons: "Was very cold on fight,"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."

Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."

Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"

Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "Delayed on both flights"

Pros: "The food was good....they kept bring us more and more."
Cons: "There wasn't a choice of movies and we all had to watch the same one with the screen in the middle of the aisle. I had to have my head at an angle and it got tired after a while..... We also had to pay an extra fee to choose seats that were together....that was a rip off!"

Cons: "Taxied for 45 minutes. 10 minutes to open the door. Had to walk .5 mile to get to customs. Had express pass because of connecting flight Still had to wait in line with express pass. Then had to transfer to new terminal. Trains out at ohare so buses. Waited another 30 minutes for a bus then 15 bus ride. Missed flight and had to set around for 4 hours for next. Totally unorganized. Not this way in Japan."

Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."

Pros: "seat"
Cons: "Staff seemed exhausted. American has no customer service phone to explain to customers what is going on. Bad experience all together."

Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."

Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"

Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"

Pros: "Price and service"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive."
Cons: "Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?"

Cons: "2.5 hour delay."

Cons: "Seats very narrow. Not enough legroom."

Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."

Pros: "The crew, the movies, and window seat"
Cons: "Didn't like how tight the flight was. Way too compact and 3 seats near window seats makes it so uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."

Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"

Cons: "Check in personnel were very unprofessional"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again."
