Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "I hope to always find the great deals I have with Japan Airlines and continue with a smooth traveling experience as this one!"
Pros: "everything was perfect!!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"
Cons: "I think it would be good to put more food that is geared to a more international palate."
Pros: "Very good premium economy seats and airline service was excellent - highly recommended"
Pros: "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."
Cons: "As usual it is most difficult moving through the airport in China. It took a long time to get our bags and they were "damaged", however my box made it without difficulty."
Pros: "JAL has excellent service. The flight attendants are very responsive and always there to help. The boarding and everything was smooth."
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "This flight was just pretty routine."
Cons: "I wasn't able to make my original flight but that was more the airport's fault so I had to take a later flight and didn't get a choice seat. Tight quarters."
Pros: "excellent seat space, friendly flight attendants, would fly with JAL again."
Pros: "The best airline I have flown in. Plenty of room and the in-flight service was excellent."
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 787 was quieter and felt very comfortable. The take off and landing were more smooth than I remember other flights being. The seats were quite comfortable and everything was very nice."
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: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."
Pros: "Great service. Great seat."
Pros: "An airline that thinks about consumers and then delivers a premier experience. Fly no one else to or from Japan."
Cons: "The DC China Embassy web site clearly states that a valid APEC Business Card can be used in lieu of a Chinese visa. In spite of this I was denied boarding by JAL. It turns out the system is not fully in place, and eventually I was issued a 10 year multiple entry visa by way of apology. JAL did not waive cancellation fee, and I suffered considerable economic damages."
Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."
Cons: "I wish they had a larger movie selection, but they had most "New Releases"."
Pros: "Amazingly polite, smiling happy people. Respectful, it actually makes your day to deal with employees like this."
Cons: "Nothing. Was great."
Pros: "Service & Food"
Pros: "Customer service is great."
Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"
Pros: "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing actually"
Pros: "Excellent service--excellent food (ice cream included in coach)."

Cons: "when the flight attendant spoke it was super loud we had to plug our ears and pressure in airplane was bad"

Pros: "The counter for UA was not attended. I had to make few calls and they managed to put me in the next flight via Chicago"
Cons: "Reality. Flights are sometimes delayed and bound to miss connection"
Cons: "Plane on time and it was very hot on the plane"
Cons: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"
Pros: "The flight attendant from HSV to ORD was really funny! I don’t know if it was planned or intentional but he definitely had everyone’s attention!"
Pros: "We like to have our carry-on available under the seat so I thought I was planning ahead by getting the second row. Turns out the front row puts their carry-on under their seat and the second row gets screwed. All my extra leg room was lost with my bag taking up the space because it could not fit under the seat. They shouldn't charge extra money for that seat and I felt cheated."
Cons: "No space for carry-on under seat in second row for upgraded leg room seat."
Cons: "3 hour delay. Had to reroute."
Pros: "Crew was good. Could watch movie on phone. Arrived early."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Didn’t offer lunch options, just snacks. Barely made it to boarding due to previous United flight being delayed. Appearently, since we arrived early, was no staff at gate so couldn’t de-board."
Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Cons: "Too long delayed"
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Cons: "The Basic Economy baggage policy is ridiculous. Charge me what the ticket costs upfront."
Pros: "Mas o menos"
Cons: "En el manejo de mi maleta me rompierón una de las ruedas de la maleta."
Cons: "When booking through kyak, we were not informed that we were booking basic economy and all of the restrictions that come along with that ticket. We were not happy to have to check our carry on luggage and not be able to choose our seats and would have opted for a more expensive ticket if given the option"
Pros: "serice agents at the airport were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "flight was changed to go thru atlanta. the connecting flight was delayed 3.5 hrs making its departure at 1:51AM. ugh."
Pros: "Everything was on time and fantastic. We got in 20 minutes early"
Pros: "I liked the leather seats and movie selection. Plus movies are free. I also like the power outlets in front on the screen instead of under seats like other planes."
Cons: "Minimal food options for lunch meal for this particular flight."
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Cons: "Took off very late due to maintenance working on a seat"
Pros: "I fainted on the plane from dehydration. The flight crew took care of me really well. They helped me get fluids in and checked in on me frequently. I am deeply in gratitude to the crew."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The flight attendant appeared rude and obtuse. acted like she was doing the customers a favor, not good at all"
Pros: "No carry on fee .. nice staff .. on time!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, courteous, and welcoming."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline"
Cons: "The flight attendants were terrible, wouldn't let us get off the plane to get food when we were delayed for over an hour and then wouldn't even sell us food until half way into the flight. I hadn't eaten since the earlier flight coming from international transfer thinking I was going to miss so I rushed to get there only to be delayed with united again then starved and not arriving home in Corvallis until 1 when I had work at 7 am. Made me not happy at all. I will never fly United again."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Check in at the airport with United was terrible. The United agent on duty (Sandra Mcelroy) was rude, slow to process us, extremely inattentive. She either didn't know how to or was unwilling to verify our infant in arms' ticket, check our baggage, or receive a cash payment for our checked bags after she sent us to the kiosk for a third time. She never greeted us and only addressed us when absolutely necessary but had plenty of time to talk with her coworkers. It took nearly an hour for her to process our check in. She actually made another customer cry."
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Pros: "Crew- very efficient on the ground andon the air"
Cons: "Inner flights no entertainment. Maybe dhould go wifi like LH"
Cons: "Good very systematic"
Pros: "Crew was nice just snacks flight was turbulent no one fault"
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Pros: "the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The seats are so small you cannot access your carry on under the seats."
Cons: "UAL announced one hour delay due to no plane availability which I could understand after an early day thunderstorm. But shortly after, I received a text from Kayak.com (booking) announcing delay moved to 30 mins and boarding had started. Thank goodness for Kayak.com"
Cons: "We boarded and waited then was told we would wait more for people on a late flight then something wrong was found on the flight. After over an hour we were able to get off. Then we were told about 20 minutes later to get back on. No one can see the future. What i did like is that you let us get off the plane for a while before our 3 hour destination. Wish that would have happened sooner. This. Was on the flight from Boston to Salt Lake"
Pros: "Boarding was painless despite being a full flight. Plane left on time."
Cons: "Complete failure of the wifi based streaming system. And not just for me, but the whole plane. Probably never fly with UA long distance again for this. Failed on the way out and on the way back. I have no faith that it will work the next time. Crew were sympathetic but powerless to fix it. A stale sandwich is forgivable, not having any on demand movies to watch for 11 hours isn't ."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and the cushions felt like and old cushion on a wood board."
Cons: "I wanted to get on the earlier flight so after checking in I proceeded to the gate to speak with the gate agent about getting on the earlier 11:55 flight. She was no where to be found. Other members of my party that I had traveled with appeared and said they got on the earlier flight because they were looking for people to switch and offering it down stairs where you initially checked in. No body had offered it to me which infuriates me because now I could not go back downstairs through security. I was stuck upstairs waiting for someone in charge to appear. The gate agent arrived 1 minutes before the flight was supposed to board. She told me that it was too late to switch flights and that it should have been done down stairs when I initially checked in. She said they were looking for people which really irked me because no one had offered it to me. She then told me that she gave me the wrong bag tag and switched it out for the correct one. The air port was hot, crowded and smelly. The plane ride was over all okay. We did not start boarding on time (my tickecg said boarding would begin at 12 and we didn't start until about 12:45) and we left a few minutes late. Other than that I was grateful there was a TV on the plane"
Pros: "At our origin the flight was delayed and they were gratious enough to switch us to united so we didn't miss our connection. Delta hooked us up! Tight connection in Atlanta, but the flight to Seattle was awesome."
Pros: "The little waffle cookies you gave away were terrific. I really liked the boarding process with the different lines for each zone."
Cons: "I was not able to view any of the in flight movies because of an error."
Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly flight was smooth and nice."
Pros: "The only thing good about this experience is that I didn't go through it alone"
Cons: "I was stuck in DFW for over 10 hours, the staff was rude, ineffective and lacked customer service skills in general."
Pros: "We have a list a cookie on the fly"
Cons: "The see were too cloused"
Cons: "Received a message that the flight was delayed about an hour and a half before it was originally scheduled to take off. Fifteen minutes later received another message saying the flight was back on schedule. Ten minutes later received yet another message that the flight was delayed 2 hours. Having such late and inconsistent flight information really cut into my schedule, prevented me from spending more time with family, and caused me to sit unnecessarily in an airport where all shops/restaurants were closed so I couldn't even get dinner."
Cons: "Too cramped, fligjt delay of over an hour"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the flight attendents were friendly."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
