Cons: "The fact there are many airlines which can't even get close to what JAL can offer and even if they try, employees won't be able to match it because of the cultural differences. Makes me sad that other airlines (I won't name them) can still be in business... they need to fly JL9 once and hope they understand."

Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr."

Pros: "The service on this flight was excellent.First class service in the economy section."

Pros: "It was a good price. I always like JAL flights that provide much better service than American companies. The Japanese staff are EXCELLENT! My flight was delayed from Montreal, but when I arrived Chicago, the JAL crew was waiting to take me to the next terminal!! (This never happens for American airline companies!!)"

Pros: "fine food, the pilot handled a typhoon like a pro"

Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."

Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."

Pros: "Plenty of room for economy seats. Good food. Free movies and music. Friendly service."

Pros: "Service was fantastic. Had a bit of a headache and the air hostess was quick to get me a Panadol. Entertainment system is good. Do check out the outside camera that works when landing gear comes out. Great view. Great idea."

Cons: "The gate to connecting flight was very far and signs to gate were confusing."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Cathay is a good Asian airline, and if you compare it to any American-based airlines, Cathay is exceptional. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful. Seats and food on economy are pretty good, as far as economy goes. Entertainment system is updated and offers a good variety of options."
Cons: "They are a bit strict on carry on luggage weight but not that big of a deal."

Pros: "The service and flight were great"
Cons: "The food was bland and it had no flavor. I got food poisoning from what they called a low lactose meal. I am a Chef myself and I feel like part of the overall experience is being fed but I didn’t have a great experience with that. I dread the flight home."

Cons: "Decent 777 planes, but felt dated and very cramped. Food was disgusting and limited options."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it. I am extremely pissed off"

Cons: "Delayed flight and promised me in Chicago and in Flight that the plane in Hong Kong would wait. Now I am sitting inside the Airport waiting until morning to fly out. I will never fly with them again. LIARS!"

Pros: "The Stewardesses were very polite"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The staff was attentive to fixing the problem after it happened three times."

Pros: "The cabin crew was nice, courteous, and professional. The cookie and juice were good. The variety of music was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Airport crew leaves a lot to be desired. The passenger next to me took up too much space- no fault of the airline tho. The soy chicken was salty."

Pros: "The crew and pilots are always polite and professional."
Cons: "We were an hour late out of Chicago giving me only 60 mins to catch my flight to Manila...."

Pros: "I normally fly Delta (Platinum member), but the price this time I thought was ridiculous. I bought the flight on Cathay for 45 percent less and actually I found the service and food quality was better. Both seats were about the same in comfort......So I would do it again"
Cons: "A Economy flight is an economy flight....what else can I say"

Cons: "I dont like the servic guys"

Pros: "The crew on Cathay Pacific is really a cut above. they seem to have a genuine wish to see to the comfort of the passengers. It is also a pleasure to have so many choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding from NY to Hong Kong was really well organized, with people in the back of the plane getting on first so that it was easy for everyone to get right in. This did not happen on the return flight from Hong Kong. Further, at one point we were rousted from the waiting room and made to go through a second inspection, having are bags searched again, and having random people go through especially invasive searches. Very unpleasant and unnerving as we were given no reason for this."

Cons: "Very good"

Cons: "The checkin supervisor at Ohare gave me a hard time given that am the only checking in. I felt I was profiled. Very unprofessional"

Pros: "Chicken rice"
Cons: "Mess in TPE"

Cons: "The movie selection on the longest leg of my journey wasn’t very entertaining."

Cons: "The crew manager shouted to me and my 1 year old boy during the flight as my son cried. They did not offer any help, my family got insulted and cried. The worst flying experience in my life, will never take that again."

Pros: "The crew is always polite and professional"
Cons: "I can't eat airplane food that is always Asian flavored....sometimes I just want a sandwich."

Pros: "Crews were respectful."

Cons: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable. Water was served after 1hr of the flight"

Cons: "The first flight to Hongkong was delayed for 1 hour, so the connecting flight to London was change to a flight 10 hours later. Then that 2nd rescheduled connecting flight moved 10 hours later was AGAIN delayed!!! Wasted 1 day that would have been spent nicely in London. What a way to ruin our London vacation by Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "There was nobody around the second business class section... was private and comfortable..."
Cons: "No beverage service or nothing after take off... only breakfast service 2 hours before landing... but slept through that... woke up hungry."

Cons: "Service was not that great for business class a"

Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal."

Pros: "many choices of movies, tv and music program. great service on board"
Cons: "delay for one and a half hours"

Cons: "Passenger seat is very hard and after 12-15 hours in most uncomfortable."

Pros: "Seating in standard coach compared to premium economy on US airlines. The seats reclined back enough that I actually was able to sleep most if the 13-hour flight. Meals were very good for economy. Cabin crew super polite and patient, which I've come to notice as a standard on Cathay. As an example, I have a good intolerance to shrimp/prawn. My outbound flight LAX-HKG, the dinner salad included shrimp. I explained i could not eat the shrimp. The attendant was kind enough to swap it with a leftover vegetarian salad."
Cons: "Trying to setup special meals to avoid food allergies is non-existent. Cathay offers many special meals, excluding food allergies or low-carb. I attempted to call in to Cathay to explain I could not have shrimp/prawn. The rep either did not understand or could not help. I really wished Cathay offered a pre-arrival meal like the other airlines. LAX-HKG and HKG-LAX are 13+ hours. Cathay offers a departure meal and a mid-flight meal. But by arrival time, I was starting to get hungry again. Thank God, I had enough of a layover, even with CBP processing, to grab a quick bite before continuing an additional 6-hours to home with no time to eat."

Pros: "The staff was courteous. Good entertainment system (except for the mix up in the languages of the movies)."
Cons: "Not as spacious as other international airlines."

Pros: "There was no in seat power despite that being listed as an amenity. Also, there was no checked bag included in my flight, despite selecting that in my search for tickets."
Cons: "In seat power for phone charging while flying transatlantic is extremely helpful. Ticket purchased was not as advertised."

Pros: "Toilet facilities"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Sits are extremy tight"

Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"

Pros: "Service was great, meal was fantastic, seats were very comfortable, and the assortment of things they provided for entertainment were fantastic."

Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."

Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."

Pros: "I loved the food for the flight and the service, it's always a pleasure to travel with Lufthansa. Awesome entertaining opportunities."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Lots of movies."

Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"
