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: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."

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!!)"
Cons: "The food is getting terrible. They had better food a year ago."

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

Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."

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."

Pros: "Flight check-in counter was so nice and accommodating. Makes me never want to go back to rude America."

Pros: "The seat I selected was the first row of regular economy. It had extra legroom and received excellent attention by the staff for drinks. The arline served 3 meals and snacks on the flight. I felt like I was eating the entire trip. :)"
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."

Cons: "Small plane. No cabin space for carry ons."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The food was amazing - they had no right to make food that good. I really was blown away."

Cons: "Some crew members seemed tired and did everything minimally"

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.

Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."

Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

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: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"

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: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."

Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"

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: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"

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"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

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: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

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: "Everything was on time and the food and service was good."

Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."

Pros: "Hardware was excellent. One of the most comfortable First Class seats for sure."
Cons: "CX first class is designed more for individual travelers so for couples who want to sit beside one another there will be an aisle in between them. The Boston BA lounge is horrific and depressing so it should be avoided."

Pros: "Vegetarian oriental meal was good. Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hr. I was not notified on time to go make arrangements to go to the airport a little later."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and diligent !"
Cons: "Food could have been better with some more options available onboard!"

Pros: "Cathay pacific is the best airline"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Delayed. Late notification of delay. No text notification of delay."

Pros: "Everything, thank you. See you next time. The best airplane"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Very polite and professional. The movie selection was the best I had ever had.......great job there!"
Cons: "I am 6-4, so I always struggle with comfort. My legs cramp and my back aches. The meals look good and I even try them sometimes, but me and airline food seldom work out."

Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "pilot’s operation of the plane is very good"
Cons: "there’s not enough snacks/food"

Pros: "I had never flown with them before. One of my friends is coming to visit me in the Philippines next month. I told him make sure he books it on Cathay I was super happy with the whole experience."

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

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."

Pros: "The crew and entire ground staff very courteous. Good entertainment choices. Crew tried their best to make a good experience."
Cons: "Decent 777 planes, but felt dated and very cramped. Food was disgusting and limited options."

Pros: "Good entertainment choices, but the system itself was awkward and slow to respond."
Cons: "The 777 was tired. Tray tables weren’t clean and it was fitted with seats that did not recline. Most uncomfortable!"

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: "Great attendants"
Cons: "TV problem; food"

Cons: "Need more drink and food service. Cramped seating. Air hot and dry."

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"

Pros: "CX still has good offerings on flights from their home in Hong Kong to other destinations."
Cons: "However, CX for International Regional is, in no way, comparable to their better long-haul routes. That being said, the entire airline has lost its luster like their home country is losing their value with prices going up and value for-the-dollar going down."

Cons: "I dont like the servic guys"

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: "Excellent crew, great food, best steak I have ever had on a plane. Fantastic overall."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Plane was old but clean."

Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."

Pros: "CX starts throwing out some old movies, it's nice to see some vintage from my kid age."
Cons: "How about some new Hollywood release please"

Pros: "The crew was very receptive even calling me by name also very attentive to my questions about the food and entertainment"
Cons: "The movie selection on the longest leg of my journey wasn’t very entertaining."

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."

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew, noticed I woke up and served me breakfast with only 45 mins till landing.. The flight was delayed and the airline had arranged for an escort to quickly get me to my next flight without even asking"
Cons: "The lack of content on the entertainment system, quickly ran out of movies to watch"

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

Pros: "Cathay Pacific provided excellent service."

Pros: "The flights overall were great. The crew were very professional and personable from when I checked in to when the plane landed. Definitely will be using Cathay Pacific again"
Cons: "The food was not very good, whatever bit I ate caused me a bit of a stomach ache. I was able to munch on some snacks. Please have some more fruit options available."

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: "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: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."

Pros: "I have tried united and delta and for the price this is the best."

Pros: "Clean plan, good food and drink and great service from the crew."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight of my life due to turbulance"

Pros: "Great service, very accommodating staff. Good food as far as airline food goes."

Pros: "The flight was on time, and my luggage made it through the connection."
Cons: "The audio on the TV didn't work, but otherwise, no problem."

Pros: "Seat was better than any US carrier, food decent, lots of movies and shows."
Cons: "Seat wasn't as comfortable as other economy seats on premium carriers."

Pros: "service, organized, seats, movie options, temperature"

Cons: "Flight was delayed in to HK. The restaurant staff (not airline staff) came round offering HK$ 75 to each passenger for a snack. This much appreciated, but I wondered why a restaurant worker was doing this, not airline staff. Being delayed into Osaka, the captain kindly told us that buses were arranged. Good! I thought, until the organization was seen. Ground staff were no where to be seen. Eventually found them huddled at one arrival gate directling passengers to buses. Other passengers at the other arrival gate similarly swirling around without info or help. staff unhelpful, rude, uncaring. SHOCKED by level of incompetence."
