She was incredible and super helpful. I knew it would be a great flight just from her service at the beginning."

Pros: "Curteous and pleasant."
Cons: "All packed the plane. Tight."
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."

Pros: "All was fine"
Pros: "Very comfortable, good movie/entertainment choices, great crew"
Pros: "The most polite and attentative flight attendants and great food options."
Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."
Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. Overall it was as good as a 12 hour economy flight can go."
Cons: "Unfortunately they ran out of some food by the time they got to us and only had fish left. It was okay, just not my favorite. We were 35 minutes late taking off which contributed with me missing my connecting flight."

Cons: "No details were provided about the food on offer. I didn't know what I was eating and no options were provided"
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent on my flight back to JFK. They were very attentive and kept a smile. There was never a time where I felt uncomfortable. There was open seating on the flight and the staff allowed passengers to relocate for increased comfort. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "The food on my flight was just ok. Going out to Japan the food was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I was a little disappointed on the way back."
Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "Premium Economy had good seating space and leg room."

Pros: "excellent seat space and excellent in-flight service."

Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable because it did not convert into a completely horizontal bed. The small incline meant that I could not get comfortable and could not sleep.

Pros: "Everything was well organized.."

We called Kayak, they have Zero customer service. We called Emirates, they blamed it on Kayak. They said that they should have advise us to book the Hotel at least 24 hours before departure.

People were just following blindly as the group moved, finally everyone was led out of the airport after immigration cancellation, then to baggage claim where we had to collect all checked in big bags and board a bus to take us to hotel . The hotel was good but getting there with the big bags for just a few hours and then the flight was scheduled for night (12 hrs later than original schedule) They could have just held the checked in baggage with them, or arranged an alternate aircraft to arrive sooner."
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."

Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."

Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Cons: "remove justfly"
Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."
Pros: "With the exception of comments below, everything was great."
Cons: "Although I understand bad weather is out of the airlines' hands, cancellation of flights seemed to be called a little early (ie to places that we just starting to rain before snow). It took me four days to get home (mnl-rap) because of cancelled flights"
Pros: "The meals on Japan Airlines (JAL) were delicious!"
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: "Comfortable good service and friendly attendants and good price"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."
Cons: "Waited 3hrs to leave the runway"
Pros: "787 Airplane is nice, very modern. Early Departure Early Arrival. Very smooth Flight. In Flight Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "There was hardly any food and no offering of coffee or variety of beverages on this International 10+ hour flight. Seats were small and not very comfortable. On arrival nobody seemed to know which terminal exit family should meet us at, and LAX "information" said they know nothing about what AA does. Unfortunately LAX is just a terrible airport for arrival or departures. But AA needs to show more clearly where family should wait to pick up arriving internal passengers."
Pros: "AA hired a stewardess from Taiwan who spoke to us in our language. She and her team all made sure our journey was comfortable."
Cons: "Taxied for 45 minutes. 10 minutes to open the door. Had to walk .5 mile to get to customs. Had express pass because of connecting flight Still had to wait in line with express pass. Then had to transfer to new terminal. Trains out at ohare so buses. Waited another 30 minutes for a bus then 15 bus ride. Missed flight and had to set around for 4 hours for next. Totally unorganized. Not this way in Japan."
Pros: "Business class is wonderful"
Cons: "Bathroom floor was full of pee."
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time and arrived early at LAX."
Cons: "They ran out of breakfast. Seat configuration was 3-3-3 in economy and not 2-4-2 like on the JAL flight on the way to Japan. The level of professionalism is much higher on JAL in regards to the flight attendants than AA. The boarding process still needs a lot of work to be more organized (take a look at JAL as an example - they treat customers like kings and queens). Also, there was no way to get a seat assignment through the JAL website. That website looks and acts like it’s from the late 90s."
Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, amenities such as USB charger and outlets were convenient. Flight departed about 10 minutes early and arrived early as well! Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Cons: "Movies selection"
Pros: "The calmness and assurance from the cockpit was promising"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not pleasant at all. They had know clue what to do during the flight emergency."
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."
Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "For international flight that plane was way to tight. It was like being stuffed in a can for 11 hours. I will try to not fly international with American again."
Pros: "on-time, very organized, fast checkin"
Cons: "cramp leg space"
Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Pros: "The plane landed on time."
Cons: "Beverage are limited, one of the crews was loud, the food was terrible. I made a reservation through japan airlines. If they do a codeshare, they should give the passengers equal advice."
Cons: "Prefer ANA to JetStar!"
Pros: "Other members of the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "I sat in an aisle seat and one of the crew, old man with a lot of facial hair, must of hit my arm going and coming 15-20 times during the flight. Not one apology. NOT One!!!"
Pros: "The crews were very kind to young people."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "Very comfortable and enough drink service."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Cons: "AA charges extra for a lot of the economy seats which they claim are "premium" but do not warrant the excessive price tag."
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment consoles were nice with a great selection of recent movies, which was nice since the flight was 12 hours. The food was alright but nothing to write home about."
Cons: "The seating space was much more cramped than the JAL flight I took over to Japan. It was awkwardly close to your neighbor when getting adjusted with seat belts and such. This would have been OK for a shorter flight but a bit too close for comfort for a 12 hour one."
Pros: "Comfy and friendly. What's not to like up front?"
Pros: "Sears had more room than as medal, service and hospitality much improved over as. Dinner and breakfast were scrumptious and drink choices were abundant."
Pros: "New airplain."
Cons: "As usual bad luggage handling in USA. At passport control, noticed that my luggage handle was removed half way but I had to re-check in the luggage and airline people did nothing about the handle with tag. And the luggage was lost. Can someone study how other country luggage handler care about customers ' luggage? Save your operation cost!"
Pros: "We were delayed out of Tokyo and missed our connector into Tampa but the airline did a stellar job of being here at the gate with our new flight and boarding passes and also Did a great job makeing sure our luggage arrived in Tampa."
Cons: "Plane going over much better. Had better tv screens charging ports and seemed more comfortable. We were delayed 4 hours out of Tokyo but I know that just happens when you travel sometimes"
Pros: "Economy comfort seating was nice but overpriced. Not sure its worth the $150 ish i paid. American even seems to charge for aisle seating as a premium."
Cons: "Most of the flight attendents acted likenthey wished they were somewhere else. Tired of there jobs."
Pros: "- approachable staff - plane was insulated enough where I wasn't too cold - ample food options on flight"
Cons: "- plane was older and less comfortable - limited film selection - films only played at certain times so you had to wait in queue until the next showing started"
