Pros: "Service was great and flight landed safe. Korean food was delicious."

Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "Korean Air staff was very nice and helped me as a disabled passenger."
Cons: "Was on a 777 both legs and they have very little padding in the seats which makes for a sore butt."
Pros: "great staff... treat you like a king"
Pros: "Korea Airlines is the best!"
Pros: "I thought the food was exceptional"
Cons: "Lack of food option for vegetarian"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. did not board by aisle."
Pros: "From the April 12 Sydney to Seoul flight, the landing at Seoul was so smooth, so professionally done I hardly knew we had touched ground. That Captain has much to teach all pilots wanting a higher standard to their skills and the recognition of these standards. That caption is worth his/her weight in gold, giving Koran Air a gold standard. To compare, the landing at Osaka April 12, late at night, was done by an apprentice who has much to learn from your gold star captain.."
Cons: "The same Sydney to Seoul flight, crossed the Qld Great Barrier Reef around 11am April 12. Having a window seat, so much detail of the Reef was visible which greatly surprised me. Beautiful colours galore. Having my face glued to the window at this time, I was unaware of cabin happenings. A male steward tapped me on the shoulder and said "Close your window blind". The beautiful scene outside my window was a first and being 76 old, likely not to happen again for me. Naturally, I ask the male steward "Why", He repeated 4 more times, "Close your window blind". Each time my reply was the same, "Why". On his last request, his voice raised, so in turn, my reply was raised. Sadly, he walked away silently, hands waving in disgust. Only then did I realise the cabin was completely black, no light seen. If at 11am, traditionally, this is a custom, a service to passengers on that particular flight, the male steward didn't say. He clearly expected to be obeyed and didn't expect a challenge. But also felt I didn't deserve a reason for his, what clearly was a demand. Would he have treated a male passenger differently. I flew economy because that is what my budget demands. Flying is not common for me but certainly a thrill that demands a window seat. I give much praise to all other staff, especially the captain landing that very craft at Seoul. At my age, years of experience allows me to be aware and notice. A beautifully presented mature female stewardess in economy, served me. When I requested a beer with the main meal, she said I will give you my favourite. I knew this was double talk for having only one brand beer left, that was a weak American beer. I watched this lovely lady many times being distracted by other staff with questions and 2 other passengers near me, asking for changes. She never blew it. And she passed me in the Sydney terminal, end of the day for her and believe it or not, she remembered me. She was not in such a hurry to get to her destination, that she gave time by turning her body, giving me a wide smile with eyes saying, Yes, I served you. You see, she's never off the job of customer service. I learned much, flying with Korean Air. Many thanks, Sally"

Cons: "No comment."
Cons: "I would have appreciated more movie options and TV show options on the entertainment monitor."
Pros: "Excellent Service !!! All you can Drink (Beer/Wine). Two Delicious Meals Served. A Third One if you were still hungry. All these Included With The Price I Paid! Less than$650 R/T during the Off Season. Plus, Good Selection of On Board Movies and Programs. Prompt and Courteous Service from the Korean Airlines Ladies. Took Off On Time, and Arrived On Time.

Pros: "I liked the professionalism,courtesy and kindness of the crew. I was impressed with the way they handled their Jonson a flight that ran into a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "I would have liked a better explanation of our meal choices, particularly as it relates to the spiciness of the meal. Simply telling me that my choices are chicken, beef or fish is not enough. I also would have liked a broader selection of movies from which to choose, especially on a 12-hour flight."
Pros: "The return flight food."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Great service, kind service, food was better than expected, and they allowed you to stand in the back to stretch your legs. This was helpful for the 13 hour flight to not be trapped sitting!"

Pros: "Fairly smooth boarding, no problems with luggage."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating in economy, difficult to make it through aisles due to narrow width. Back ache on this long flight. Bathrooms don't seem to be enough for number of people on this flight. Arrival time is a bit late. Very bumpy flight at 10K."
Pros: "Cleanliness. More leg room"
Cons: "Attitude of a couple of the airline stewardess toward me. They served the Korean citizens and deliberately overlooked me for snacks or coffee/tea. I had to ask thrice."
Pros: "We forgot our IPad in the plane. We met in Seol one of the flight attendants. She stayed with us and arranged for somebody to bring the Ipad from a different location . She refused to continue home , until she saw our property found. It wax an exceptional service!"
Cons: "The service on the plane is outstanding"
Pros: "Great food and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Free same quality"
Pros: "the flight attendants were great, and we had the two seats across in the very back, which is much more comfortable than the three, or the center area."

Pros: "Same as above"

Cons: "Get wifi"
Pros: "Hospitality was top notch! Always friendly and helpful. Food and snacks was good. Liked having the TV in front of me for the long flight. Liked having the toothbrush!"
Cons: "The ability to upgrade when there were many open seats and I was told at check in that there were no seats available. I had fallen during my vacation and really wanted to upgrade so I can stretch out to not put a lot of pressure on my low back and hip for a 12+ hour flight, and didn't get the chance. Was pretty upset when I walked around and noticed many open seats in both business class and first class. (first class curtain was opened for a short period of time)"
Pros: "I like the clean atmosphere of the plane The stewardessses were professionals and never condescend to keep the plane clean. The movies were good."
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "Overall korean airline is awesome."
Cons: "Should have better selection of food"
Pros: "At Incheon Airport, many passengers were taking up three seats and sleeping, very rude. The plane was already scheduled to be late by twenty minutes, blaming the weather(light snow). While checking in at the gate, the flight attendant gave my wive a hard time about her USA Visa. She has a spouse Visa with the first picture ID having expired and a current USCIS extension letter explaining that this is perfectly acceptable. The male flight attendant asked her for another letter, and none exists. We did get on, he called USCIS to verify this, but we were the last to get on and this started the delays. It is also a little embarrassing, since all of our paperwork is alway in order. We are not criminals. The next delay before leaving was that there were two unclaimed, untagged suitcases on the plane. The flight attendants were running back and forth trying to resolve this, but this was at the last minute when we were trying to take off. The plane then had to be deiced causing even a further delay coming to one and a half hours. As we "almost landed" at O'Hare in Chicago, the plane was ready to hit the runway(within feet), but pulled up at the last minute and accelerated with out explanation. I know they were trying to avoid an accident, but this seemed like bad planning or miscommunication. Next, we were fling over Lake Michigan turning around. It appears we landed on a runway facing west as opposed to facing east. There was no explanation about this, except that we would be delayed even longer. Prior to our deplaning, the flight attendants moved many of the people in the back of the plane to the front empty seats. I believe this was due to the lengthy delay and these must have been passengers with interconnection flights. This was a nice gesture of customer serve, but it was very disrupting to my wife and myself. Since we were detained at the gate, we were upset during the flight, and had a hard time relaxing. This last minute commotion made our flight more nerve wracking. This flight is over 12 hours long, and we expected to sleep/relax and become reaccustomed to the 13 hour time difference. This did not happen. Finally, we live near O'Hare, and our neighbor was doing us a favor and picking us up. Due to the lengthy delay, we had to reschedule our lift home, just another incident to add to our anxiety."
Cons: "I have often flow n with Korean Airlines and praise the company to my friends. Our last flight KE037 seems to be an exception, not a rule. Overall, I still like Korean Airline, but next time, sadly I will remember some of these problems,"
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding!"
Cons: "I would have liked the ebooks section of the entertainment options expanded. I love to read and that would have greatly distracted from the discomfort of having to sit so long in such cramped quarters."
Cons: "I needed to change the date of the flight and JAL refused to change it. that sort of made it a bad flight since I couldn't take it."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, wonderful food, love the chef program for meals which helped me feel more engaged in the JAL experience, and air mos burger for breakfast which made me feel as though JAL truly wants to show its passengers highlights of modern Japanese culture."
Cons: "Seat and seatback were so stiff and uncomfortable that my tailbone and neck/back hurt; I had fallen asleep and woke from the discomfort. Entertainment had censored versions of films that ruined the viewing experience. Music collection interface could be designed better."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of background noise from the plane. I couldn’t hear what the attendants were saying."
Pros: "The meals were an experience in itself. It felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant."
Cons: "The seat cushions in economy class could be softer. My rear end was feeling it after the long 11 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo."
Pros: "Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Tickets were in the wrong name and the company that issued them refused to fix the problem. I ended up buying a second ticket directly from the airlines."
Pros: "People were friendly - from check in right through to disembarkment."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Tight seating."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My 12 hrs layover in Japan."
Pros: "The seating on this plane was super spacious and comfortable- leg and seats. Also the seatbelt gave real room. The plane was cleaned; crew friendly, food delicious- featuring semi- famous chefs and well ventilated."
Cons: "Flights should enter from back to front that way you're not waking over people to get your seat.-"
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown."
Pros: "Jenny was the most wonderful flight attendant in Business Class! She checked on me constantly and made sure I had everything I needed."
Pros: "I had to change my flight and it was a terrible experience, I will book directly with the airlines from now on."
Cons: "Delayed flight that cost most passangers their next flights, incredibly stressful. Upon arriving to Chicago there was a problem lining up the exit ramp to the boarding craft and it took a very long time to correct the situation."
Pros: "The service, more leg rooms and flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "The crew, the flight, the pilot to cabin communications, the food, USB hookup, and the movie selection was amazing. I am so happy that I flew Japan Airlines on my return trip. I would highly recommend them for your travels."
Cons: "My original flight was late and pushed my entire schedule back. I had 15 minutes to deplane and get to my connecting flight. This caused a lot of stress on me however, the Japan airlones Crew escorted me (we ran as fast as we could) to my next flight so that I wouldn’t miss it. I boarded with 1 minute to spare which is way too close for my comfort."
Pros: "JAL is a great airline. Love flying on them. great crew. roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "Great tasting food, and nearly constant beverage service."
Pros: "Boarding procedure was the most efficient I have ever seen for a 777. Very quick and efficient, back to front. Great food. Very polite and efficient crew. Plenty of leg room in coach. Comfortable seat configuration, with only three seats in center section. JAL is a great airline!"
Pros: "The small plane from Toronto to Chicago was operated by American Eagle. The airplane is a small. I do not have leg room, but overall it was a decent flight."
Cons: "Small airplane"
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."
Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."
Pros: "This was an AA flight.I never expect excellent service from AA."
Pros: "Flight attendants were super helpful and lovely, couldn't have asked for better. Very pleasant experience. Plane was clean and tidy and they arranged us all so the majority of us had a spare seat in the middle which I'm sure everyone appreciated."
Pros: "Everything about the Japan air portion of our trip was excellent."
Cons: "No problems whatsoever."
Cons: "They will not let me board the plane and I checked the airline before.leaving USA to make sure my ticket is valid and it's OK but when I was to return to USA on april10 they inform me my ticket invalid,cost me alot of money and inconvenience ,God bless"
Pros: "Great seating very spacious for economy class.... I got a pillow a blanket and lots of leg room... I enjoyed the in cabin service... TV was nice lots to choice from great movies..... I enjoyed free Wine.... And loved my ice cream treat... Felt like first class.... Thank you"
Pros: "food"
Pros: "Very comfortable, good movie/entertainment choices, great crew"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight service and attendants. The attendants were always respectful and smiling...."
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."
Pros: "Everything was on time. Crew was outstanding."
Cons: "Very long lines at the security gate at Itami. Difficult web check in."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."
Cons: "Remarkably the one issue on this wonderful business class seat was a limited area of storage for small items, most significantly a lack of a pocket for a cell phone by the USB port. Also the armrest didn't rise when the seat was in upright mode."
Cons: "too little legroom seating is designed shorter legged Japanese"
Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"
Pros: "More leg room in Japan airlines. I decided to use JAL as much as possible. Stewardess are all nice and very attentive."
Cons: "Food is ok, but way so much better compared to the other airlines. The chair is not as comfortable (hard to sit) , but more leg room is a good advantage."
Cons: "I ordered Hindu vegeterian meal while coming to Chicago on phone with Japan Airline I got Asian veg food"
Pros: "An airline that thinks about consumers and then delivers a premier experience. Fly no one else to or from Japan."
Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"
Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"
Cons: "Chair is way too hard."
Pros: "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing actually"
Pros: "A quiet, quick and on time flight in a small plane with a competent crew - just as expected!"
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating super friendly."
Cons: "The food . I had a stomach ache with one of the salmon(raw) salad. It was horrible!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."

Food was not good at all

Pros: "Again, the crew was extremely polite and accomodating. I’d fly with them again!"
Cons: "Selecting seats online"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, eager to help. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "This is just a poor airline in which I will never fly on again. I will blame it a lot on miscommunication but seats are horrible and need way for cushion especially if you are on a 11 hour flight."
Cons: "On time is always nice. Overbooked someone in my seat when boarding. On arrival sat for a while to get into the gate on a flight that was already 90 minutes late"
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A pair of babies wailed and cried for almost the entire 10 hour flight. Was this ANA’s fault? Of course not, but they could’ve suggested to the parents ways to help with their children."
Pros: "I was lucky the flight was not full and the seat next to mine was empty allowing me to relax and sleep well."
Pros: "Never take it"
Cons: "I was seated at the exit isle, ample of leg room, but the seats were very narrow. I barely fit into the seats. I noticed the seats behind had smaller arm rests so they had more space. The movies on board need upgrade."
Pros: "The flight attendents were very attentive. I started to havecan upset stomach on decent and the attendent checked in on me to see if I needed any help, she got me a botte of water and checked in on me again once we had fully landed. I really appreciated the concern and care they showed."
Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was good didn’t hate anything"
Cons: "1. Missed our flight connection in Chicago because of delayed take-off from Tokyo. We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later. 2. ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."
Pros: "Had the katsudon and it was great, love the little tapas dishes they include with it."
Cons: "Would have loved to get a hot towel and slippers. 787 got quite cold when sitting in the middle section. Didn’t seem to have any way to control it."
Pros: "I booked with kayak thinking it was an A&A flight and said I got crappy United all the way to Narita Japan where the plane didn't make it on time and I missed my connection for my A&A flight got to love it be careful what you book on their site"
Cons: "Deception at the time of booking"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and exceptionally polite and attentive. Possibly the best I have encountered on an international flight."
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Again I had a problem with water bottle, I asked small water bottle but they didnt give me one and i asked if they can fill my 2,5 yo water bottle they only fill it half. I asked again for water hours later and they said I need to wait because they will serve dinner (which is 30mins later) This is just very unpleasant experience and I felt like a bad person asking for only water"
Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."
Pros: "crew very helpful from check in to deplane..i would suggest when arranging seat for couples or mother abd child make sure its to gether at first check in not later at another airport which was fine they did in manila..but from chicago they cant do it have to wait in japan and almost not done"
Cons: "the smell inside the airplane"
Cons: "Coming from Kulalampur to Japan I missed flight from Japan to Chicago Ground crew refused to rebook me to next flight and then argument only booked up to Chicago and I had to call USA and my daughter to help There should be ground crew at gate for people who has short time to catch to facilitate There was no body and I was couple mts late In international flights they should rebook and give hotel I was traveling business class Poor in help Comfort and flight was ok Food not much choices"
Pros: "On time. Flight attendants don't shy away from helping passengers put their carryons in the cabin compartments. They were there in a split seconf to assist you - ANA flight attendants only. Food was great in ANA airlines. Toilet is clean. Boardinh was orderly."
Cons: "More frequent offer of drinks to passengers"
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, I was especially impressed when the flight attendants would intermittently clean up the restrooms- something that definitely doesn't happen on US airlines. Good food as well."
Cons: "Again, would prefer a larger selection and more change with movie choices."
Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "It was way to hot on the plane, I actually couldn't even sleep because I was sweating so much. They give out blankets so I would think it would skew to the cool side so people can adjust themselves. Nothing you can do when it is too hot other than suffer."
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Very fast service as well."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and attentive. Lavatory was kept clean. Good choice of movies."
Pros: "Free alcohol on international flights is always a plus."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as expansive as I've seen previously."
Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"
Pros: "The ANA stuff at Chicago airport is nice and helpful"
Cons: "My mom has to stay seated "90 degree" the whole time from Tokyo to Chicago (NH12). The seat is broken and she cannot adjust it to a comfortable position"
Pros: "Good experience. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "The stewardess are the most polite and helpful I've travelled with"
Cons: "Nippon kept the planes uncomfortably warm. Also, we were not in an exit row, but our seats still didn't recline."
Pros: "As long as I didn't fly on united"
Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."
Pros: "Great service, accommodating staff. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent. Meals were perfectly portioned and delicious!!!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Cons: "Flight were shaking badly several times and I feel dizzy"
Pros: "pleasant service. no surprises, delays , etc. thank you."
Cons: "why would they call it a 'hindu meal' if it includes meat?! pilot & crew a bit hard to understand when they spoke english - thick accent."
Pros: "The ANA crew is always exceptional. Drinks and food are constantly being provided and the crew routinely walks about the cabin to ensure passenger needs are being met."
Cons: "For some reason, other countries do not use a number system when boarding. This often means if you're not paying attention, you could be the last to board the aircraft because a line will form almost out of thin air. Minor issue, but a systematic boarding procedure would be good."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Service and so much free drink."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service and flight experience!! Thank you."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The food was great. Very responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Could have been slightly cooler in the cabin."

Booked this by accident, when I missed my Peach Air flight from KIX to TPE that morning. And am I glad I missed it. Eva has to be one of the best airlines I’ve ever been on. It was my first official impression of the Taiwan, and it set the bar high.

Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat. I purchased a seat with more leg room but didn’t know that exit seats don’t have the same width as other seats so my hips were in the seat tight. I wish I would’ve known this before I bought the extra legroom."
Pros: "Very professional."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and plane was on time. Food was good and also had various snacks in between meals. One of the things I liked most was that they had nitenacks in the restroom."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Very attentive and friendly. Food was better than expected. Seating (premium economy) was very comfortable."
Pros: "Comfy seats (no need for pillow), large touch screen, generally clean"
Cons: "Better food. I love airplane meals and been on many different airlines and sad to say, eva air has the worst food out of all of them"
Pros: "The price. The staff was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Free food!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was very good at serving the meal. The crew did a great job telling passengers to get back in their seats when they were standing up while we were on the run way after landing."
Pros: "Crew was great and food was good toom"
Cons: "Might be out of your control but the turbulence got pretty rough at times and was alot more than any of my flights I've been on."
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "Very accomodating crew. One of the nicer airlines I’ve flown on. Newer, well maintained clean aircraft."
Pros: "EVA Air is an excellent overall airline."
Pros: "Being able to check bags and get boarding pass at Taipei Main station prior to boarding MRT (similar to Hong Kong) is a very useful convenience. EVA staff there were extremely pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "EVA Air has just got it figured out, solid from boarding to departure"
Cons: "Faster airplanes, or I could pick shorter trips"
Pros: "Perfect Landing."
Pros: "I saw Sanrio, the character goods all over like pillows and meals, which was good for Sanrio lovers."
Pros: "Food and service always reliably good to excellent. If you're used to the North American style of "we are primarily here for your safety" service standard, then Asian airlines like EVA would be a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "Boarding time always seem to slip a few minutes lately."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight, many amenities included. Meals were excellent. Hospitality was exceptionable."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full and we could spread out. Food was fine."
Pros: "Flight left on time , flight attendants made the flight great"
Pros: "I like the whole round trip flight. from smooth and fast boarding process to big leg room for my premium economy seat. Food are good with 2 choises and staff are pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing I don’t like"
Pros: "Feeling much better than others"
Pros: "plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "the second meal options were not to my liking. I chose Pasta, but i did NOT like the pasta meal: Too much pasta, not enough chicken."
Pros: "My roundtrip flight from Chicago to Bangkok was excellent for many reasons. First, my flight from Cleveland was delayed, and the EVA crew was quick to communicate with me and be sure to get me to the gate so I didn't miss the flight. The staff were all very kind, helpful, competent, professional. The airplane was very clean, very efficient, good meals, good entertainment. Excellent airline. I'll be flying with them regularly!"
Pros: "Great crew, impressive washrooms, food was wholesome and warm"
Cons: "My friend had a long wait in line to get her boarding pass. She was denied at the counter to fly due to there being 40 minutes until her board time. She was not checking bags, and the security line was a walk through. But they would not issue her a ticket, cancelled her international flight, AND her return flight. She had to buy an entire new round trip international flight...All the while her plane was still on the ground...This did not make sense to me. This does not make sense to anyone I explain the story to, either. Your counters truly are always long waits. It was her fault she didn't leave enough time. But the lack of flexibility in rebooking and the inability to still use her return flight home? WHY."
Pros: "Everything about my flights.."
Cons: "None.. they were very acoomodating of my request esp my seats"
Pros: "I liked that the Airline was very accommodating in arranging an alternate flight for me, after they caused me to miss my Connecting flight in Taipei, due to the delay in Hong Kong. I didn't mind being redirected through Seattle first, and then on to Chicago, but. . . . ."
Cons: "The 1hr, 40 minute delay in Hong Kong ended up costing me 11 hours of additional travel time to reach my final destination. The Airline arranged for the last leg of my flight to Chicago from Seattle to be on a different Airline, and it wasn't so comfortable. Arrangements were made by the airline in Taipei for my flight out of Chicago for me also, but with a 4 hours layover and on a "Standby" condition. This I didn't understand because there was a much earlier flight leaving Chicago on this same airline and it wasn't full. Staff at the ticket counter did eventually correct it to the earlier flight for me."
Pros: "I Like the AirPlane d staff but not d food.There food should needs improvements it looks ordinary."
Cons: "Absolutely their “FooD” a lot of riders or my friends & family complains their food."
Pros: "Seat is comfortable, washroom very clean"
Cons: "So far none since this is my second time in Evaa Air."
Cons: "We love there service no complaints"
Pros: "First time flying , smooth journey, nice in plane entertainment, food, crew etc"
Cons: "TAIWAN airport has free half day tours."
Pros: "Thick blanket, toothbrush & toothpaste, eyes cover for sleeping, on time boarding, excellent overall"
Pros: "food is good"
Cons: "night hour flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Crew were friendly and attentitive."
Cons: "English speaking movie content was sub par."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with adequate room all around for economy seats. Crew was hard working and responded to whatever requested. Entertainment system was great, great selection of movies, music and games to keep me occupied for my 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Only negative would be the mediocre meals otherwise great flights, great experience."
Pros: "Punctual and comfortable flights. The lounge at KIX & TPE are both excellent."
Cons: "The quality of food on board needs to be improved. It is best to get a good meal in the lounge before boarding."
Pros: "everything done well and professionally"
Pros: "Crew were attentive.though tone of voice is not friendly the one doing announcement lady"
Cons: "Food is good though not as good before. Porridge was good though!"
Pros: "Love this airline! Their efficiency is amazing and the customer service was just as great!"
Pros: "great service!"
Cons: "The food was not as good and they could have offered more drink/water service."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Godd leg room. Nice staffs. People sre friendly. Clean bathrooms all througout the flight. Impressive airline"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Services were excellent. My daughter spilled her drinks on me, and I didn't have any change of clothes, asked for help and get pants from the crew to change."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice."
Cons: "Old movies. Need more drink service on 14 hour flight."
Pros: "Overall good flight. You get what you pay for. Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "In flight entertainment could have been a bit better, but other than that it was a good flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Sitting for 15 hrs"
Pros: "Crew attention to detail, comfort, food, overall experience, clean restrooms"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and attentive especially to the older passengers"
Cons: "Nothing speaks volumes than an on time flight. While there was ample time for in between flight changes for leisure and rest, a delayed flight affects passenger demeanor and satisfaction the most."
Pros: "It was a turbulent flight. I was nauseous and broke out in cold sweat. I could not eat any of the foods for fear of vomiting. Flight attendants are very responsive to requests. Washrooms are clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Flight attendants kept on telling me to push my handbag under the seat multiple times when the bag could not go any further and yet, ignored a woman's backpack on the opposite aisle that was just plopped around her feet."

One thing I noticed was that food options wise most people opted for vegetarian option and that caused some shortage of veg meal. In my opinion if there is bitter paneer as the veg option then there should be butter chkn as the non veg option. Not a completely different cuisine. AlsoThe staff was more courteous on the way to dubai from chicago than from Chicago to Dubai.

It’s not what I expect core two out of five

It is as good as can be. food could be a little better.

Thank you for everything No comment 👌👌

I wish the food tasted better.

Pros: "It was a quiet flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "comfortable seats. Flight duration was good. Layover was little longer. Overall good experience"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The entertainment was really good. The movie options were good. It was really nice that the movies were free. The pilot did a nice controlled landing and take off"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "too many little children"
Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."
Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "n/a"
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Cons: "cabin crew's service - men far behind women esp.when serving food. Not up to the mark."
Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."
Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"
Pros: "I left my kindle reader in the seatback in my flight to Dubai. They found it and returned it to me on my retum doback to Chicago 3 weeks later."
Cons: "Lactose free meal was disgusting."
Cons: "Food did not meet the usually high standard associated with Emirates . The menu was bland and the main course was served cold."
Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."
Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"
Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."
Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"
Cons: "My screen was not very responsive to touch. Was challenging to navigate. I couldn't clearly hear the PA announcements"
Pros: "Hospitality and food"
Cons: "Seat assignment and boarding process"
Pros: "Crew were very competent and nice."
Cons: "There was not enough overhead space for my carryon bag, so had to go further back in the plane to find space, this caused a problem when disembarking."
Pros: "Good Price with on first priority"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"
Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."
Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."
Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."
Pros: "On time and cheap flight"
Pros: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment options could be better"
Cons: "We specifically reserved AVM meal option and couldn't get that on flight. It appears that it was not only us but many passengers who reserved AVM meal option were complaining about not getting one. On 14 hours long flight not getting a good of your choice is bad."
Pros: "Flight was clean that's pretty much it."
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines this was the worst service."
Pros: "Excellent crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Restrooms needed cleaning And Boarding were unorganized"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats were old and in row 44 & 45 would not reclineand others reclined too far."
Pros: "good crew, prompt timing, good food"
Cons: "long transit in Dubai"
Cons: "Leg space is very little.. Rest rooms were messy after a while."
Cons: "Last minute surprise with re-routing to Chicago. Few options provided on Changed booking."
Pros: "Very helpful crew"
Cons: "I like almost every thing."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Kind flight attendants food."
Cons: "Too crowded."
