Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat was very spacious"
Cons: "More space to put things"

Pros: "Perfect in all aspects. Will use them again for all my flights."

Cons: "On a long flight it is good to have a good movie. Selection very bad. Seats r not comfortable seat turns into bed but lower part is too low. Poor design. Food not very good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), and entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large). I would definitely recommend JAL to others."

Pros: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"

Pros: "Once again the service from the flight attendants was perfect."
Pros: "Friendly crew members and prompt service."

Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "No clue when it's boarding time and no announcement"
Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."
Pros: "The cabin crew was professional, friendly and courteous. It's always refreshing to fly an Asian airline for the impeccable customer service. The 787 left me with minimal jet lag. The odd shaped pillows provided great back support."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but old fashioned. The WiFi was spotty and it would have been nice to have Asian food options."

Cons: "Nothing! No complaints here"

Pros: "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."
Pros: "I've been always flying with U.S. airlines this past several years just because transits are easier. I forgot about how friendly and nicer JAL crews are. Their food is much much better. They served us with a cup of Haagen-Dazs icecream for dessert while a Fatboy is normally served by other airlines. I was impressed by how spacious the foot area of their economy seat is. Because I felt quite comfortable, I slept five hours straight during the flight which is phenomenal to me. I will definitely fly with JAL again!"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian Food, inflight entertainment was horrible. Even the air hostess approach Was unexpect from JAL. If it was any American carrier it's expected to have such service."
Pros: "Great 12hr flight"
Cons: "Loved everything!!"
Pros: "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."

Pros: "It was perfect!"
Pros: "Never got there. We are still in the Dominican Republic where United Airlines abandoned us."

Cons: "Being in a middle seat"

Cons: "Due to purchasing from Kayak, we could not change flight even thought flight UA34 was delayed due to mechanical. We had to call ANA, United and Airline.com but no one can change flights. We will not purchase tickets from Kayak. We called 11/5 to assign seat numbers. However, when we get to the airport, our seat was no assigned as we requested. They had to re-arrange to sit next to each other for two of us. Fight got delay does not mean they can re-assign our seats."
Pros: "Love this direct flight! So nice!"

Cons: "Had to change planes. Entertainment did not allow me to play movies. I could view the trailers."
Pros: "Friendly service! Good legroom"
Pros: "No problems on the way home."
Pros: "Cabin and cockpit crews great. "Food" = small bag pretzels. Entertainment was available, but too expensive. Did not observe anyone buying it. More leg room than previous flight."
Cons: "United wi fi did not work during either flight. Phone service only worked on the ground,"
Pros: "I like to the passengers on the plane werrhelpful"
Cons: "After calling United to change my seat to one in the same price category, I arrived on the airplane to find the attendants had no record of me having that seat. Which not only caused embarrassment for me and the other passenger but also held up the flight. Also this was the worst food I've ever had on a flight in my entire life even other United flights had much better meal choices."
Cons: "I checked and paid for my luggage and alpt of peoe with carry on luggage had theirs checked for free. Totally unfair"
Pros: "The crew was great."

Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded"
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Twelve hours of horrible delays, missed connections, and running through airports due to poor aircraft maintenance and mechanical problems. Will never fly United again if I have a choice."
Pros: "Automatically rebooked flight was changed free-of-charge to a different destination."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed, which was understandable due to inclement weather. Connecting flight, which was also United Airlines, was either uninformed of the delay, or indifferent. Myself and two other passengers arrived 2 minutes before the flight left, were told we could not board, and watched the plane undock from the gate and fly away."
Cons: "I have been flying by ANA in the past. I prefer ANA service over the United."
Cons: "Why is it that an a thirty minute flight I can watch entertainment on my own device but when I am on a two-hour flight with a TV in the headrest that I'm not able to watch anything without paying for it first? I've already paid for the ticket, I don't want to pay for freaking a movie too. Especially after having a three-hour layover and having the gate change 3 times on me"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Worst airline food I have ever had. There were supposed to be two choices for dinner, when they ran out of one, they just shoved the food at you with no apologies. It was the worst fried chicken ever, and breakfast was worse. The two male flight attendants never smiled, had attirude, and were overall jerks."

Cons: "No snack :( not much for beverage option :("
Pros: "Clean, new plane. ComfortaBe two by two (no middle seats) smooth flight. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "The change fee for the ticket I had to change from United was more expensive than the ticket itself meaning they basically just took my original ticket with no recourse for me. Thats ridiculous and I will try to NOT use united again bc of that. They should have change fees not to exceed cost of orifinal fare. Highway robbery."
Pros: "The crew was great and there was plenty of provided snacks and food."
Cons: "I had the exit row window seat and froze! I couldn't sleep that seat is so cold."
Pros: "Pilot was very happy and friendly! Very informative throughout flight."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 40 times by other passengers and flight attendants."
