Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I did not understand special with covid why half the plane was empty they keep us all together. Would have been nice to be able to spread out and have more room. Seats and leg room are small."
Cons: "flight didn't even happen"
Pros: "Everything great"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment choices and regular food and beverage available"
Cons: "Boarding took so long and only 2 spots they were allowing entry and one person was there for 10 minutes so essentially had 1 window And not the friendliest staff"
Cons: "They messed up the seat assignment I paid extra for, and while I bought WiFi for the entire trip it turned off halfway through."
Pros: "Great crew with positive attitude. Boarding was non chaotic and plane was clean and new."
Cons: "Food could be much better"
Cons: "I requested for wheelchair die to my knees problem, but there was no wheelchair for me at Narita and Bangkok."
Pros: "JAL flight crew were the best"
Cons: "all were good"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane itself seemed newer and was very comfortable."

Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "For being stuck in a small space for twelve hours, they made the experience about as good as you could ask."
Pros: "The Jetstar flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Pros: "Boarding at Springfield was fast and simple. The check-in agent were friendly and efficient. I especially appreciated that the flight arrived early into Dallas. I had a little more time to find lunch before my next flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor maintenance that caused issues before take off. Of course safety is important but that is why maintenance should be done routinely and prioritised accordingly. The pilot on the first delayed flight (new airplane) was clueless, his exact words "... our analysis team from midwest needs an hour to figure out whether we can fly or not" This is after we have boarded the flight. Then after about an hour of sitting in the plane, he says "rumor has it that a new plane will be towed in..." What? Why didn't they stop boarding and just get the new plane in. And I don't appreciate the emails saying flight is delayed without giving any reason for it. AA could have certainly done a better job of communicating the issue. Further the flight crew including the pilot were acting like victims. If it were an Asian carrier like Singapore Airlines, the crew would be smiling and providing assitance courteously since they represent the airlines. Not flying them again."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "I'm glad they didn't fly an airplane that didn't pass the mechanic's evaluation."
Pros: "Was surprised at the selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Hard to be comfortable in economy, but it sufficed"
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
Pros: "The amount of things to keep you entertained for the long flight"

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Wish the seats could've been a bit more comfortable"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine -- I never felt any major discomfort."
Cons: "All three of our luggage were left behind in Chicago; normally it would not be a big deal, but we are leaving for a trip right away and needed our suitcases, clothes, and the souvenirs we had bought for our friends. This inconvenience is why I rated this flight low."
Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."
Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."
Pros: "The food and seat back entertainment were great, as well as the staff"
Cons: "Legroom was borderline inhumane, as a 5'10"adult I don't think it's too crazy to ask for a little more space on a 12+ hour flight. Good luck sleeping"
Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."
Cons: "one staff member was extremely rude when asked for another beverage."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. I really liked the touch screens on the chairbacks. Food was fine for airplane food. It came more than I expected. Get sandwiches over the meals, they are better quality. A vegetarian guy had a hard time but the crew tried to help him out. Comfort was ok for a 13 hour trip. The chairs are not really the best and my back hurt after a while. Make sure you stretch! Crew was nice except for one lady. But she wasent rude just... non responsive. Other members were fantastic though. Boarding was very painless."
Cons: "Veggies and salads: gross - should have been blanched. Mid- flight snack was literally frozen. The meat had ice crystals!"
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and we were stuck with very warm conditions for 2 hours and 40 minutes before we took flight."
Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."
Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."
Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was great their wasn't enough clarification as to what airline I was fliying. It said Japan air on my confirmation email but it would up being through American Airlines. The experience through American was superb but I would of liked clarity on such airline I was going to fly with."
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."

Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."
Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."

Cons: "THE flight from Newark to Montreal was HORRIBLE! the flight was delayed and when we boarded, we were stranded on the taxiways for 2,5 hours. After 20 hours of flying, and you know your last flight was just another hour, I ended up arriving Montreal at 12.30 AM when it should've been 9 PM"
Pros: "Service, entertainment, drinks, everything! Very good!"
Pros: "This United flight was really an embarrassment when it comes to international flights for many reasons."

Pros: "Spacious enough (for economy), decent food, no delays in boarding or in schedule"
Cons: "I was surprised at the rudeness of the female staff towards people who didn't understand her the first time she said something. Obvious looks of anger and condescending tones towards those people spoke to poor customer service; however, one male staff was really friendly and fluent in Japanese. Very helpful"
Pros: "It arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The food are not appealing no salads & ran out of choices, eating something that we don't want to"

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude!"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Stink in the plane"
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "My dear was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful. Food selections were very good. Lavatories were well maintained throughout the 14-hour flight, which is very much appreciated."
Cons: "Movie selections could be a little more current, but the options presented were fine."
Cons: "Reputation of United makes you expect bad service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The food was so so - I left very hungry (which is not so good for a diabetic). One of the toilets overflowed and soaked the carpeting by the bathrooms. There was an out of order sign on the door - but no sign indicating the rug was soaked. I left my shoes by my seat - had to throw my socks away. Movies & entertainment was mediocre."
Pros: "Service all crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding tome"
Cons: "Slight delay, entertainment system appears dated, boarding can use more organization, overhead bin space can be at a premium due to people trying to bring too much aboard (number of carrying) and they can run out of the popular food choice"
Pros: "Plenty of room and the flight crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and ran out of overhead bin space (no attention paid to size or number. The boarding groups (particularly between 3/4) was a mess in terms of organized lines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "ANA: Flight attendents very nice"
Cons: "ANA: Seat was uncomfortable for a seven hour flight....Could not totally recline ANA: Food was very basic--not a business class meal"
Pros: "Great flight and crew"
Pros: "I got upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus without being charged a dime more. And the difference between the two classes is very noticeable! The Economy Plus seats may have an extra 3" per side and it's awesome! Plus, United partnered up with ANA for my first leg to Manila and that plane was spectacular, as was the top-notch crew!"
Pros: "great service from flight attendant Angela and Asian crew."
Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "One of the fight attendants answered no to moving to an empty seat saying it was an Economy Plus seat but in less than 3 minutes another passenger freely occupied that seat. Really?"
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Pros: "My flight was canceled. The service for trying to get it rescheduled was horrible."
Cons: "Had to make 6 phone calls with an average hold time of 15 min before I even some to anyone each time I called."
Cons: "It was a very unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "Nah, sorry I don't have any special for the flight!"
Cons: "The United flight so far was a terrible experience for me. the food is so salty and so little!! I am a person who love to eat so much, but the food (noodle) was very bad, I didn't finish it. The ice-cream at first I'm so excited and the taste very good! However, it been already melted so... I'm so disappointing. There is no entertainment on plane... I'm so boring"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses had a terrible attitude. She was rude to people and rolling her eyes at them. She also seemed to be rude to her fellow co workers."
Cons: "Did not have enough good snacks"
Pros: "I made it to Thailandafter 2 flights only to be told iIccouldn'tenter without Thai visa. iIwas sent back and forced to use my flight back. Staff was horrible in Thailand"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The fried noodles that they served was too soggy. The crew was understaffed but it won't justified their bad service. I called twice and noone came to helped. They had a young Asian male flight attendant that was flirting with other 2 guy passengers. But when other passengers approached him he wasn't very nice at all, he had this unpleased face all the time, It was hot and we couldn't connect to the internet. It was just horrible. Sucks paying so much for a very bad service."
