Breakfast food has no choice and served seafood rice is really despairing.

Great service.

Cons: "Delayed flight for 2 hours, rude staff at the JFK airport and then v choppy flight, delayed even more by waiting for an arrival gate in FLL."
Pros: "Great seat, cabin crew was fine."
Cons: "Too much confusion trying to just find a shower in the lounge"
Pros: "The crew was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie choices were limited."

Cons: "Good"
Pros: "The crew always smiles and very accomodating."
Cons: "The main course could have been better or improve. I wasn’t satisfied with the taste."
Pros: "Seating and service"
Cons: "Flight to Haneda airport not Narita"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"
Pros: "they assisted my aunt very well all through out her flight"
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "Spacious leg room"
Cons: "Toilets can be cleaner . And food could be tastier with 2 choices ."
Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"
Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."
Pros: "We traveled with our 1.5 year old and JAL was incredibly accommodating and made our trip very enjoyable. They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was smooth and provided impeccable service."
Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Pros: "Crew was great, just like Japanese specific hospitality. Crew clean up toilet and keep refilling toilet supply. Airplane was nice and clean. Entertainment equipment was up to date."
Cons: "I could not log in in JAL website using mileage account. They said it has been maintanance mode for a while and could not tell when it would be completed. I tried a month later but the problem was not solved. They foward any problems and inquiries to reservation center but calling the number won't find anyone to talk. Always they put me on hold for hours and never reached anyone. I have food allergy and tried to request for special meals but the option was not there under my eticket number as described in their website. They say the option may not be available because I purchased my ticket from 3rd party, not from JAL or it was code share flight. Very inconvenient. I had to skip 2 meals out of 3in leaving for Japan. I got very hungry at the end of the flight...."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Prompt, friendly service. Clean aircraft with comfortable seats. Onboard meal for international flight."
Pros: "Wonderful crew!"
Pros: "Able to accommodate many dietary requirements and friendly crew"
Pros: "Attendants appeared intolerant and impatient. Not the pleasant courteous crew flying into Japan."
Pros: "Flight was half full so was able to take aisle seat."
Cons: "Fight attendant service was poor. Even getting water for meal, the attendant 'forgets' to bring it."
Pros: "Flight attendants are all nice, polite and always smile. Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Waited for one and a half hrs before the plane took off, almost an hr went by then they announced some minor problem with engine. Good reason but they had a/c on so cold all these times. Also I would appreciate coffee or some drink while waiting...I guess that's not possible in this case."
Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great service and terrific vegan meals served. Facilities were clean and personnel were very helpful and provided terrific service to the passengers."
Pros: "No wait time at check in, boarding on time, friendly crew, clean plane, landing on time"
Cons: "No online check in"
Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"
Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
Pros: "The JAL flight was great. Seats were comfortable and leg room was very good. Crew was excellent too and very attentive."
Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."
Pros: "everything, the courtesy of the entire crew, the way they show care and respect and compassion to the passengers especially the seniors"
Cons: "flight delays"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, food was terrible"
Cons: "The father next to me that spilled two drinks on me. I didn't even get an apology. Beyond sold out plane too..."
Pros: "Fare price was unbelievable. JAL and AA combined to make my flight very pleasurable and memorable. This first leg, on AA was smooth and allowed me to go to my connecting flight easy without having to go out of security and back into the international section of LAX"
Pros: "There was a huge amount of new and classic movies to chose from to pass the time. The crew was friendly and professional. The food was decent. I like the variety of food choices and some of the dishes were delicious (salmon and rice). The seats are pretty comfortable. They aren't great for sleeping in, but the flight was decently quiet and dark for some time. I would recommend bringing a pair of earplugs and a neck pillow."
Cons: "The bread could be better. I would have the bread be softer and warm. A warm croissant as a substitute would be amazing.The butter could be softer (like margarine) so that way it can actually be spread onto the bread."
Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."
Pros: "I like everything about my flight"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
Pros: "The fact that everything is included with the flight makes it very easy to fly with JAL. The staff was friendly and helpful when I was checking in. The agent tried her best to get me a window or aisle seat but was unable to. That didn't matter though. Airlines in the US should learn from them and treat their customers the same way."
Pros: "The crew and service."
Cons: "No entertainment. No snack either."
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "excellent foods and services, spacious seats, crews speak english, flight is landing is smooth"
Cons: "seats need a bit more padding"
Pros: "Attendants were very supportive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Restroom smelled bad"
Pros: "The stewardesses were wonderful-kind, considerate and hardworking. Great meals and constant attention offering drinks. The movie choices were terrific. I stayed up all night watching top flight movies that I had not seen. I would love to travel with them again!"
Cons: "Nothing- except maybe the long trip. But if I have to take this long trip, I'd take it with them!"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."

Pros: "flight attendant in business not as nice as sfo to narita"
Cons: "My suitcase was "lost" in Tokyo/Narita on the way to Shanghai. Don't know what happened. Got my luggage two days later. This isn't Kayak's fault. ANA should've done something to make this right."

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Young, pretty, and charming stewardesses. :-)"
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
Cons: "We kept delaying our flight half hour to 45 minutes at a time from 5 o'clock in the evening to one in the morning and then they canceled the flight at one in the morning after sitting there all day"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."
Pros: "Superb!!"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very nice and pleasant staff"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to delays from first flight"
Pros: "Everyone crew members was very friendly and helpful. I"

Cons: "I could not chose my seat for this flight. It was a HUGE hassle. Flew with boyfriend and we were automatically put in seats that were 20 rows apart. We could not choose our seats online, or at airport. We had to wait until we were at the boarding gates, and all of the seats were taken."
Cons: "no"
Pros: "Great Premium Economy experience with comfortable seats and extremely-hospitable cabin crew!"
Cons: "Archaic In-Flight Wi-Fi Plans should be brought to modern-age plans."
Pros: "Spacious Premium Economy seats with excellent flight attendants looking after general wellness of customers."

Pros: "One of several preferred airlines when flying to Asia. Really enjoy their service, and it's wonderful to wake up to many beauties in view!"
Pros: "The service was excellent"

Pros: "Seats are spacious even for economy class."

Pros: "Good air line. Threat you well, enough food very good service."
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Cons: "We were not provided vegetarian food on two legs of journey although we had earlier informed the airlines."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Crying babies made it tough to sleep the whole flight"
Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."
Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Comfy chairs and good food on Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the male crew didn't do anything, the females did all the interactive work in serving and helping the disabled as far as I could see."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff, the food and overall the experience."
Cons: "That our bags weren't check in all the way to SEA"
Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "loved the hot towels and the entertainment provided"
Pros: "I have never encountered nicer more professional staff. They always had smiles and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I always tell friends if they have a chance to fly Singapore Airlines to do it. They won't regret it. Especially on long flights."
Cons: "I was in economy class but I would have liked more leg room. My knees where hurting from having little leg room."
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Pros: "Crew and staff were great and accommodating."
Cons: "This trip was not quite as excellent as my flights on Singapore Airlines usually are; however, I cannot say for sure there was much that airline staff could have done to change this. A great deal of turbulence earlier in the flight made it difficult to enjoy the food. Also, there was a sewage-like smell that wafted through the air periodically - this could have been a child in the surrounding seats, though. Both of these issues seem difficult for the airline staff to address, however, unless the smell actually came from a problem with the ventilation system. The staff was exceptionally helpful and good-natured, though, which made the biggest difference. Thank you so much."
Pros: "every thing was ex best flight I have ever went on. I would rec your services to anyone."
Pros: "The crew was attentive, hard working and pleasant."
Cons: "Like most airlinesuccessful the space was cramped."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Flight was pleasant, boarding was a tiny bit disorganized. They didn't use the groups for economy, perhaps because there was so many of us."
Pros: "First time to travel with Singapore Airlines and we were impressed with the overall service for economy class. Food was good, entertainment package offered multiple options. Flight attendants very helpful."
Pros: "EVA does a nice job getting all of the service out and making sure you have everything you want."
Cons: "If you are a big guy upgrade to exit row or economy plus. This is an airline that doesn’t generally serve people that are over 6’ or 200 lbs."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Most seats have reclining problems. Very stiff and difficult to adjust."
Pros: "I loved the fact that once I got to Taipei I had a very short layover and back to SFO. Awesome"

Pros: "I'm 6'1" I guess I'm too big. I'm of athletic build and even in the isle seat I was touching shoulders w the next person"
Cons: "We could not get our seats assigned prior to check-in, and therefore had middle seats for a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and arrived 1 hr early as scheduled."

Pros: "Great food service, comfortable chairs, and adequate entertainment on the screen."

Pros: "staff was friendly. Planes very comfortable. Wine the whole way home. Movie selection great. I had a whole row of 3 seats together to myself for a 12 hour flight #winning"

Cons: "Movie selection was lacking\ Bathroom floor was wet; I needed to wipe ti up myself"
Cons: "There was an hour delay before takeoff due to some maintenance issue. Otherwise, the overall experience was good."

Pros: "Flight was not booked out so I had even more room to lay out."

Pros: "Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "Eva Air is excellent, its just the 8 hour layover in Taipei was not.."
Pros: "Comfort was good as was the entertainment."
Cons: "We noticed prior to boarding that our seat assignments were NOT what we booked! Our flight was on April 1st and the airline claims WE or the "travel agent" changed our seats on Dec 21st! The seats were changed from adjacent seats to all aisle seats (NONE adjacent)! These seats include our 8 year old twins, the airline claims WE made the change, WHY would we have our 8 year olds sit by themselves for a 12hour flight from Asia??!! This is ridiculous! I do NOT believe the crew did their job to correct this situation and were quite accusatory about US being responsible for this obvious screw up! I am still not sure who changed our seats but it really makes me think twice about booking again through KAYAK or with EVA Airlines!"
Pros: "Staff is friendly and patient, knowledgeable and efficient. Professionalism is top notch. Excellent experience."
Cons: "Not a thing. Smiled my entire 10 hour flight."
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "Food. Temperature. Toilet. Humidity in the cabin. All were the worst."
Cons: "I think Chinese people just don’t like Americans."
Pros: "Great food, nice crew."
Pros: "The. Crews are amazing. Nice/comfy flight."
Cons: "We had reservations for 3 persons. When we arrived, we were required to upgrade (90,000 yen total) in order to be seated together. We made the reservation 2 months earlier. Seems like it would have been possible to put us together."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get back home."
Cons: "Everything. There was no organization when boarding, the crew denied me food when I woke up from my nap. Not foreigner friendly at all. The crew was not attentive and I needed to keep calling them for service. Not mindful that this is a long trip."
Pros: "The flight was great. Very comfortable chairs. Wonderful lunch. professional service Alex"
Pros: "Crews are amazing"
Pros: "The new aircraft A380 was so comfortable."
Cons: "Looks like the crew weren’t pleased with their job. Poor selection for the Hollywood movies. With such a nice aircraft would expected much better service."
Pros: "Farting"
Pros: "The fruit was good unfortunately the fruit was about all I could eat because my booking didn’t show there would be food and I couldn’t request a special meal"
Pros: "Over all everything was great except for the above complaint"
Cons: "I basically don’t eat rice for breakfast. I food choices could be updated to accommodate those that don’t eat rice as a First meal of the day or Americans passagers. Over all the flight was excellent."
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The seat back wasn’t comfortable."
Pros: "Everything! From the comfortable pods in business class to the excellent wines and food, it was more like 1st class.!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Not enough movies/TV screen angle is not good when seat in front is reclined all the way."
Pros: "I had no idea Asiana is this nice. Crew, food and aircraft were all nice! Had a great time flying with them."
Cons: "I just didn’t like that they didnt tell me im gonna be seated next to person carrying a dog on a previous asiana flight. Im not comfortable with dogs and i understand they wanna create an animal friendly atmosphere but what about those who are not comfortable around animals?"
Pros: "Great Staff from check-in, gate & flight crew"
Cons: "The Meal: Should have had the Chicken instead i had the Beef Cheeks, What the hell are Beef Cheeks? If it doesn't look tasty i'm not usually going to eat it. The rest of the meal was great."
Pros: "Very speedy check-in. Great airport. Boarding was quick as well."
Cons: "Food was okay, but chicken was too greasy."
Pros: "They took care of my mom's heavy luggage and changed her to better seat."
Pros: "Between the legs of my Asiana flights, I had a 9-hour overlay at INC. Upstair in the same area with the pricey and exclusive lounges for elite travelers, there was a "Nap Space" or "Nap Place: a large suite of rooms with maybe sixty comfortable couches to catch up on missing sleep... with no sign-up required and no supervisory staff. And totally free of charge! Every airport should consider having such a welcomed service. Also at INC, bona-fide transit passengers with a outbound boarding pass can take a free shower (soap and towels provided as well?). Wow. These amenities surely make INC one of the least loathsome airports in Asia at which a day-long layover may be spent."
Cons: "No downside!"
Pros: "As a clothing professor at a university, I really liked the flight attendants uniforms. Very classy!"
Cons: "Not being able to speak Korean. Good thing they understand English."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and professional. The food was pretty good, though not excellent."
Cons: "This was a tired old aircraft not up to international standards for business class. The entertainment package was virtually nonexistent. There was no menu, and you just scrolled through channels to see what was already playing. There was no watching from the beginning of the movie, and no rewind or pause function. The video quality was abysmal, as if you were staying in a cheap budget hotel with an antenna TV. There was no privacy on this 11 hour flight, As you sat immediately adjacent to other passengers, unlike on the other long-haul carriers. I have had better experiences in premium economy on other airlines. This aircraft should be retired or seriously upgraded to justify the added expense of business class."
Cons: "Too long"
Pros: "The price: my round trip ticket from Tokyo Haneda to JFK was only 850USD The layover is only 2 hours which is bearable and enough time to find the boarding gate and a little shopping."
Cons: "Everything else. You can check-in online within 48 hrs before your flight, but there is no QR code produced on their app for paperless check-in. The food was terrible, and the seats were not made for long flights. I really felt the "economy" vibe. They only provide disposable slippers, but everything else you need to check the lavatories if there were toothbrushes or mouthwash packets left. Overall, I will still consider flying this airline for any emergency flight back to the US, but if there will be a compeittive airline, maybe i'd try another. Their business class seem enticing.. maybe comsoder it too."
Cons: "seats"
Cons: "2 and half hours delay made me crazy and caused a lot of damages for the time and parking fee for my entire family, who were waiting for me at the airport!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Dirty plane, floor and table were not cleaned"
Pros: "The friendliness of the flight crew was great. The leg room is better than other airlines."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment options on my second flight compared to my first one."
Cons: "Poor front desk service From ANA, poor entertainment system of seat delaied landing."
Pros: "Excellent first experience with Asiana... The flights were on time, the flight attendants were kind and helpful, AND my vegan meal was very tasty! Will definitely be flying with you guys again :)"
Pros: "The food was good, and the crew was friendly. Boarding was on time."
Cons: "No leg room, no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "none"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Asiana airline service was great. Attendants were so kind and gentle."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Much better than US."
Pros: "Got a court date and want to change the flight date. The cost to change the flight cost more than buying a new ticket. So stayed home instead and lost the purchase ticket."
Pros: "The food is the best among all airlines."
Pros: "Very professional and attentive staff.... Probably the best airline I have every experienced"
Cons: ".."
Pros: "For one, wanted to avoid flying to Manila on the way to Cebu and back as I had less than memorable experiences at the airport and Icheon Airport was the completely the opposite. The food and service was excellent."
Pros: "Korean meal was great!"
Cons: "Outlets for charging phone would have been nice."
Pros: "That we were referred to the manager immediately with our concern."
Cons: "The manager at the Asiana check-in station the morning of our flight told me I did not have the right paperwork and told me it was my responsibility as a passenger to have the correct paperwork in order to board the plane. When we asked her how we should proceed, she repeated the same statement about "responsibility as a passenger" over and over instead of telling us where to go get the correct paperwork. She offered no tips, next steps, empathy, or direction and did not even say, "I don't know". With her tone of voice, she basically said, "It's not my problem and I do not care - go away." My fiance and I canceled our flight and flew with Korean Air."
Cons: "Change Flight cost too much"
Pros: "Food was great, seats reclined further than I expected them to, and personal TV was large."
Cons: "Movie and TV options could have been better, but charging both 120v and USB was available, and selection was fine."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, USB outlet, the staff is great. In feb I will continue to use Asiana again"
Cons: "Everything was great! I'm not the complaining type. I'm totally happy with it WIFI would be nice though"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "I though on the website it had wifi. The movies are the same between both flight. The news was two days behind and no direct air.solidfood. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Very limited choice of movies and the system is slow and out dated"
Pros: "The flight arrived almost 1 hour early."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't offer ice with the drink, and you'd have to ask for it. The entertainment system broke down 2 hours into a movie I was watching, and when it came back on some 30 minutes later, I couldn't resume. The aircraft was very very old. The children's meals are a farce."
Pros: "I was very impressed with crews helpfulness, the quality of the food and entertainment."
Cons: "My wife and I are both Asiana Gold Club members. When we recently tried to board a plane in Inchon, Korea for a return flight to San Francisco we were told that we could not board though the gate labeled "Elite/Gold Club members" but had to stand in the long line of Economy class customers. When I asked "Why", I was told it was for Star Alliance Gold Club members, not Asiana Gold Club members. There was no indication on the sign there was a difference. Don't get me wrong, I'm not so disturbed about standing in the long line. I was upset because of the implied difference in the Star Alliance Gold Club benefits vs. Asiana Gold Club benefits and, as far as I am aware, the unpublished differences so when we as customers are at the airport trying to operate within the system, we know what to do. Please confirm there is a difference and what those differences are. Jerry"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food entertainment seats bathrooms"
