She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter . The stewardess saw that and helping me a hand . I wish every airlines has someone like this crew member . Thank you so much for the awesome service on Japan Airlines."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food, especially before landing"

Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "Great service, attitude, hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever. Thought I was a king or prince. And that's how they make you feel. If I can, I only fly JAL and especially the flight JL9"
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."

Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Cons: "The food wasn't good and the seats seemed outdated relative to other JAL flights I have taken on this route."

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."

Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"

Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"

Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."

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: "Short flight."

Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."

Cons: "The seats were quite narrow. Most of the rows behind had armrests that were able to raise and lower, but due to my seat selection, my row had the stow-away monitors in the armrests. The seats also didn't technically recline. The lower seat cushion merely moved forward, emulating a recline, but the seatback didn't actually move. It was not quite comfortable."

Pros: "I liked the way the pilot talked to us and let us know what was going on and still got us there on time even though our departure was slightly delayed."
Cons: "There had to be something better than pretzels."

Pros: "The person who checked me in at ORD found me an alternative aisle seat with an unoccupied seat next to me. Great benefit for a 12+ hour flight. Very thoughtful."
Cons: "We left late."

Pros: "It was fast and the crew got right to it as far as take off and getting home."

Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."

Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."

Pros: "After having flown numerous airlines to Asian countries over the years, we are extremely happy to have found EVA Airlines. After flying EVA the last 5 round trips we are happy to say they are the #1 airline of choice. Actually, we will fly no other than EVA as they have the cleanest planes and the best of service from the check-in counter, thru the security and flight staff, all are the best and most devoted to assist you in any way needed along your trip.

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"

Cons: "Food Seat great service"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."

Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"

Cons: "Luggage items are missing."

Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Pros: "A380 FLIGHT! Woo Hoo!"

Pros: "Nothing impressive, mediocre performance"
Cons: "Service improvements"

Pros: "Smooth flight, staff very attentive, lots of great new movies to watch from"
Cons: "Staff kept reaching past me to shut my window without asking me first. Very rude."

Pros: "The crew we're good"

Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight 1 1/2 hours. Other than that, the flight was good."

Pros: "Supportive to my family needs traveling with 2 babies"
Cons: "I was offered an upgrade to 1st class, but not to my wife, I m thankful but had to decline the upgrade. I was hoping for more courtesy for an upgrade to us both as traveling couple rather than to one only"

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The flight was not packed so I got three seats to myself to sleep. Emirates has a lot of little touches like glow in the dark stars stuck to the cabin roof."
Cons: "Couldn’t locate the call button for flight attendants and the lines to the bathroom were long."

Pros: "no"
Cons: "food was average"

Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: "Excellent food and serving"

Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."

Pros: "Plane was clean, on time and pleasant seats. Staff was attentive but not exceptional. We landed early! WiFi was free for a bit but very slow. Variety of entertainment was excellent."

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "Check-in , immigration and security experience at Dubai was very efficient via the business class terminal."
Cons: "Old business class arrangement for this route seems very outdated conpared compared to the newer fleet; was not worth the extra upgrade fee."

Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."

Pros: "I slept well since I updated to business class."

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive staff who made the flight as pleasurable as possible for us. One of the staff helped me switch from the full row I was in to an empty row which made the long flight so much more comfortable."

Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."

Pros: "awosam"

Pros: "Enough room to move around. Very much spacious"

Cons: "Checkin process takes long"

Pros: "Courteous in-flight staff, delicious food."
Cons: "Long distance travel at single stretch on Chicago - Dubai sector."

Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."

Cons: "The temperature was set too high"

Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."

Pros: "The Airport handling staff I happen to deal with in Chicago and Dubai were very courtios and helpful . Same goes with the in flight crew ....too good ."
Cons: "There's nothing I can think of EXCEPT , they did not give disembarkation cards to fill in the aircraft befitting landing which caused everyone lot of inconvenience after landing at Hyderabad airport ."

Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food, drinks, entertainment Dubai terminal is amazing & stopover was worth it"
Cons: "10-across seating in a 3-4-3 layout on a 777 is unbearable for a 13.5 hr longhaul flight like Chicago to Dubai Passengers' arms ended up on top of one another in this totally full flight--hence "Armsie" class if you like to play armsie with strangers Fly only if you are very thin with narrow shoulders + hips"
