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: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
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: "friendliness"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "The ANA crew at Haneda airport were very polite, professional, and very patient with me. However due to an online error between the ANA US website and the ANA JP website my confirmed seat on my flight was given to another passenger so I was kicked off. How this happened I dont know."
Cons: "Fix ANA US-JP online booking system."
Pros: "Flight attendants are so courteous and professional!"
Cons: "Great flight!"
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: "The crew was very friendly and cheerful. The beverage selection was very good and the food was decent. The on board entertainment is some of the best around. The boarding efficiency of JAL is the best I have seen."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "More space"
Pros: "Spacious leg room"
Cons: "Toilets can be cleaner . And food could be tastier with 2 choices ."
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
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: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."
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: "It was impossible to breathe throughout the 13-hour flight. It was very hot and humid. Several people asked for the temperature to be adjusted but they never really took care of it. The food was really cheap and stale--quite a disappointment for an expensive flight Tokyo-New York."
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: "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 service"
Cons: "Landing was horrible worse landing I have ever had"
Pros: "Great service Timely departure and arrival. JAL is really punctual"
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Prompt, friendly service. Clean aircraft with comfortable seats. Onboard meal for international flight."
Cons: "BA flight with poorer screens and food than JAL"
Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Screens were small. Leg space was little to none. Food was trrrible. I will never fly with JAL again"
Pros: "Quick local Flight. Left and arrived on time."
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: "The courtesy and professionalism is a 10."
Cons: "Checking in with Japan Airlines was a serious hassle. I had my e-ticket but they kept asking me if I had already paid. The flight was apparently overbooked but than at the last minute, they gave me and my girlfriend seats separated from each other. I sat in the back, she sat in front. The tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "It was an evening flight, but the cabin lights were never dimmed, so it was difficult to rest."
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, food was terrible"
Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "Clean :)"
Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"
Cons: "nothing"
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: "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: "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: "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: "With Japan Airlines, there is never a doubt in my mind they are going to be the best airline of choice. I was running late to my flight into Haneda to fly out to Singapore. I literally arrived to the front desk 15 minutes before the plane departed. The ladies at the front desk were very aware of my urgency and walked me threw the crew line and got me to my gate without a missed flight. I cannot thank you enough for the kind and generous work you do."
Pros: "The crew took care of us during a strange virus affected flight."
Pros: "Again, the crew was extremely polite and accomodating. I’d fly with them again!"
Cons: "N/A"
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."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so warm and friendly, always ready with a smile and eager to help."
Cons: "Simply an older aircraft and the entertainment options were lacking compared to other carriers. The news video NHK would not fast forward or rewind but would always start over. Otherwise it was a good flight thanks"
Pros: "The crew was great. I experienced great hospitality."
Cons: "The quality of meal."
Pros: "Cleanliness, spacious legroom"
Cons: "Serve coffee more"
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Pros: "Crew on ANA is always the best Also custom check in was amazingly fast, I went to the side custom check in by accident (there are two) It took less than 5 minutes, I didn’t not know I had to fill another card to leave japan but it was super easy as there was a person to guide me + basic info"
Cons: "Other than chairs being more comfortable nothing really"
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent size."
Cons: "Vancouverites are a bunch of entitled, self-absorbed twats. Not really much ANA can do about that."
Pros: "Comfortable seat & nice crew."
Cons: "Seat booking was not available when I booked on line. Ad some difficulty getting a seat next to my wife."
Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response? They literally escorted me through security, waited for me at the immigration checkpoint, and brought me to the boarding gate! I love ANA! :)"
Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly service, good food, fairly spacious seat."
Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."
Cons: "I did think about changing my departure time but the ticketing agency didn’t relly quickly enough so I was stuck. Luckily it worked out."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great in services"
Cons: "Priority not thought"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, good food. Standard flight as one would expect."
Pros: "Their service"
Cons: "Foods"
Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"
Cons: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."
Pros: "I got a great value for money ticket from KAYAK, TQ!! ANA is an excellent airline, better service, better leg rooms and cuter crew members than than SQ!!"
Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
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: "I like the cup holder ring and the coffee stirrer. Blanket thicker than United’s."
Cons: "It really has nothing to do with ANA per say. The check-in counter at LAX was unpredictable. I felt sorry for the elderly Japanese who had to wait for the counter to open"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Two key issues: 1. Split up seating 2. Required to pick up and check baggage with limited time due to customs check. 1. They split up all four of our seats (despite booking more than 30 days in advance). Our seven (7) year old daughter was by her self. So was our fifteen (15) year old son. When we addressed it to baggage check (part of major issue number 2), they put two seats together, across an aisle, with both children in them. We obviously just sat one of the adults with the seven year old. This was not just us. SEVERAL families had children seated alone and spread all over the plane. ANA needs to require grouped seating for children under thirteen (13) years old with an adult. 2. Tokyo Haneda is the only airport I can think of where I have to pick up and check baggage again just to clear customs. The flights were 1 hour and 45 minutes apart. With nearly an hour dedicated to getting baggage claimed and getting through customs, we barely had time to fix two of our split seats (see issue 1) and rush via a free bus route that took 6 minutes (luckily we were first stop) to get us to domestic terminal 2. We were then lucky again because we made it through security quickly and our gate happened to be right next to the security check we chose. Another side piece: Haneda Domestic Terminal 2 has four security check areas (A-D). We saw no identifying marks indicating which were closest to which gate. Our bags have already been through a bag check process. Feel free to run them through security scans. Don’t make us wait to collect them just to walk them through the customs desk and check them again."
Pros: "4-5 hours of lights out for sleeping, good selection of movies to make the trip go by quickly. Tasty food selection."
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."
Pros: "Seats and service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Excellent, polite service, very comfortable seats."
Cons: "seat labeling not clear"
Pros: "The flight was very well organized and the plane left on time and arrived exactly on time. The service was excellent even though the plane was close to full."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The meals were delicious. Japanese option was a seafood bento and breakfast grilled whitefish. Tasted fantastic and well presented."
Cons: "The premium economy seat was about average. Comfort okay but not the best for sleep."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "Free alcohol on international flights is always a plus."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as expansive as I've seen previously."
Pros: "The stewardess are the most polite and helpful I've travelled with"
Pros: "Great service with professional staff. I would definitely fly with ANA again in the future and recommend them to others."
Pros: "Great service and great food"
Cons: "No complaints from me"
Pros: "High quality fit out, amazing flight crew, great food."
Cons: "Movie selection could be greater."
Pros: "Meal from KUL to HAN was tasty. The separation of the gravy based dish from the rice was a great idea to prevent the soak up. Personal touch screen responsive and quality definition."
Pros: "This was a pleasant flight. The crew was very friendly and considering I almost missed my flight, due to my own negligence, the airline was amazing in making sure I made it."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to not like. It was a short and easy flight."
Pros: "crew was very polite and everything was smooth."
Pros: "ANA staff are generally well trained (but are you really allowed to land with your laptop open on your lap as some people were?) ... good service overall, good movie selection, food varies from OK but boring to very good indeed ."
Cons: "Both meal A and B selections would have caused problems for people with shellfish allergies. One was a seafood doria so they have me the other meal. The other had a sauce with seafood extract in the ingredients. I can read Japanese so didn't eat it, but there wasn't any English information on it."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the meals were pretty good"
Cons: "Every time I'm on an airplane I'm seated next to several really sick people.. I know this isn't something you can control but it really reduces the comfort any healthy individual can have. I also didn't like the really long delay for the baggage after the flight. The on flight movie selection had not changed on the return trip which was 16 days later."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding Food and service was excellent"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment was extremely limited. For a nine hour flight there was limited movies in English. Especially as we had seen most of the movies on the previous flight."
Pros: "Modern planes Clean planes Great flight attendants Comfortable seats in economy"
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: "very good service comfortable seat"
Pros: "Entertainment system, comfort of the seats, staff, food, basically everything!"
Cons: "It said that the plane was capable of WiFi, but the flight didn't have it, probably just because the route is too short."
Cons: "The food tasted very much like caned food and the seat had a pouch from wear and tear which wasn't very comfortable at all. Service didn't seem to anticipate service or emphasize needs."
Pros: "From ticketing/check-in to flight crew personnel; they ensure you are taker care of."

So, let's start with the good. Excellent variety of entertainment, nice staff & the snacks decent enough. Now the bad, the seats were the most uncomfortable seats I think I have ever personally had to sit in. The non-existent leg room is another issue. The last part can we get the people on & off the plane a bit faster. I had this elderly gentleman who was attempting to get his luggage out of the overhead bin about 6 people in front of me when trying to get off the plane that was having trouble no crew member and unfortunately no one on the plane stepped up to help him so we all had to wait to get off the plane until I pushed my way past the people standing there to help the guy. This should be something the flight attendants should help with to move the process along. The final thing, REMOVE THE STUPID MASKS. The flight attendants are sitting around in the back during the flight no mask on talking and chit chatting, being closer then 6 feet. You must see the irony in this already. Let people who want to be scared be scared and wear a mask and let people who have an immune system not wear a mask. Its over and done with. We need to move on.

Terrible company

I wish my brand new luggage was not busted. Our flight attendants was very snappy and rude as we was boarding. Our flight attendants skip us on snacks-we we’re not sleep and if you asked them to do something for you, we felt like we we’re getting on their nerves. We appreciate them showing up for work but if it wasn’t for us passenger, they would not have a job. Flight attendants please be kinder to us passengers.

Flight attendants were super chill and the flight was comfortable. They provide passengers with lots of bottles of water (two or more even); yay for hydration!

Pros: "Comfortable travel"
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."
Pros: "Customer service as always"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"
Pros: "I asked at the gate to change my seat in row 30 because I was not next to my husband. The crew arranged this! Loved the leg room! Service was perfect."
Cons: "Flying first class!"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Cons: "I upgraded to Premium+ and it did not feel like an upgrade from a comfortability standpoint."
Pros: "Al the amenities were provided."
Cons: "In this day and age Wi-Fi should be provided always. Unfortunately it wasn't on the flight from Tokyo back to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Good flight as always with Delta. Sat in economy comfort, so of course the seats was comfortable. Flight Attendants were great."
Pros: "Yes, . Amazing crew Seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."
Pros: "Leaving early and getting home early. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Late arrival"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Somehow they didn’t serve snacks and drinks, I’ve been being thirsty and hungry, at the last 30mns I felt like I wanna throw up. We landed around 30mns ago and now no gates ready for us to get out of here. Still waiting inside the plane."
Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"
Pros: "Food and entertainment not applicable"
Cons: "Seats very tight!"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "Good price, good boarding and arriving, friendly and quick crew, LOTS of fluids. Restrooms cleaned frequently!! Great legroom."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was to hard. Food should have an Asian option, the touch panel display of entertainment system worked very slow and poorly, was hard to navigate."
Pros: "Seating was ok but had better for a premium coach."
Cons: "The tv screen. Touch pad was not working properly on both legs."
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"
Pros: "Easy, fast boarding. We arrived early too."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was amazing , one patient was getting sick while flight and always to flight stewards where always outside bathroom to help her. And crew was still able to service whole plane of 200 passengers."
Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."
Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "Special staff great pilots snacks free movies safety"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."
Pros: "The time traveled to get to my destination! It would not be my choice if I was to fly again."
Cons: "The customer service. The flight attendants needs to take some more training on how to provide a better service to paying customers. The seemed a bit unfriendly!"
Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"
Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Thanks Lufthansa

Pros: "Space, seats, movies."
Cons: "I was on a seat at the end, after my seat, the stewardess had their closet and they kept hitting (very strongly) the back of my seat with the door, all the time. They woke me up several times. So not good."
Cons: "Flight delayed so missed the connection. Had to pay $120 for hotel because the next flight was next day. Had to pick up luggage from connecting city and re check them the next day. Seat tray was crooked in the plane."
Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not that good, flight was over an hour late causing us to miss our connection in Frankfurt. Consequently we were also charged for our car pickup in Prague. Overall, not impressed with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"
Pros: "Fantastic seats are very comfortable. Makes long trips like this one actually enjoyable."
Cons: "For business class the food could be improved."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Movie selection was very limited"
Pros: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."
Pros: "service much better Dennis was excellent and attentive!"
Cons: "So bad"
Pros: "There was no communication between aircrew and gate for transfers. There is a new additional check between gates and no passenger was informed. This security check was over an hour long. The flight was not held for me and other passengers and when we arrived at the gate they were oblivious of the fact that we had been held up in what seemed to be a Km long security line."
Cons: "40min delay due to airport staffing issues (as we were told)"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, there was no entertainment but wasn't needed because it was a short flight"
Cons: "We got there 15 minutes late, which isn't that bad but I had a connection flight and it was very pressed to get to it"
Cons: "The food was terrible. I couldn't eat it, and I can eat almost anything. Sorry! Everything else was good. The staff were amazing. I will fly with Lufthansa again. Thank you."
Pros: "on time Family Check in"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well. Really commend cabin crew for their excellent work on a full flight."
Cons: "A bit cramped and I really didn't like the people in front of me who reclined in coach. The cabin crew got them to put up their seats for the food service, but otherwise there was nothing they could do. Can't we just tell people that coach doesn't have the room to recline. Also, you guys are German, can't we at least board by rows?"
Pros: "Lufthansa and SAS. A great combination."
Cons: "Nothing to not like."
Pros: "Flight staff were kind and friendly"
Cons: "I could not push my seat back and the man in front of me pushed his back leaving me very little room"
Pros: "It could be better, the flight attendance one of them was overwhelmed and I could feel her attitude, although she made an accidental movement on my foot she never apologized. And her eye contact was very aggressive as if she would use words. I tried to save the moment, and avoided all further interactions. Not even to look at her, or accept even a single glass of water. She did past through my area and again she was stocked with her cart, and she thought is was my foot again. When she realized that this time was not my foot, (which in the first time it was and she kicked my knee with the speed of her movement and I was not aware to save the moment) nevertheless, the second time and for the rest of my trip I was so careful that it did not happen again. But it happened one more time, but not with my foot. although she thought it was me. She looked at me again with a very bitter-eye but when she realized that the problem was not me she looked at another way acting as if she didnot understand what was going through her mind or my mind."
Cons: "The attidute is what I try not to get involved. I am on the air, traveling, and I don't like to experience any negative feelings from no one. I am consciously aware not to give any reasons for any form of unacceptable behaviors either with or without evidence. I WILL NOT EVER AGAIN, travel with LUFTHANSA just because of the way they treated me in my case which I travel always with my emotional pet, and this time they gave me a hardship and I had to travel without Logan. and additionally to this, I had to accept that flight attendance wordless aggressive behavior. Which in my opinion, I believe she could say I am sorry, and not looking at me as her worse enemy. Madness. She honestly needs a psychological evaluation."
Cons: "This flight was canceled. I’m late to my destination. I don’t travel often and this was a bad experience. I’m very disappointed. I’m not a complainer"
Pros: "Exellent and smooth flight, thank you."
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."
Cons: "The boarding area was cramped."
Cons: "Less space in the seats than there used to be."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "they called for boarding and all the signs said the flight was boarding and yet we stood there for a good 20 minutes before they actually started boarding the flight, but other than that, flight and crew were great!"
Pros: "Boarding, seat and crew"
Cons: "Movies selection and audio offers"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Please continue to use newer, updated places."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 people working passport control in line about 100 people were in. Most had connecting flights leaving shortly. People were panicked they would miss their flights."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent."
Cons: "We started boarding much later than originally announced. We may have arrived with little delay, however. No entertainment was available, which is not that great considering that it is a three and a half hours flight."
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "The staff were really nice and professional"
Cons: "The seats we were in though lots of leg space the armrest were not reclining and after eight hours it got quite uncomfortable. Also my headphone jack was damaged but the staff made it right."
Pros: "The flight is less than 3 hours, yet they include a sandwich with the flight."
Pros: "great service and flight"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "great food ,service"
Cons: "comfortable Seat"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Entertainment selections were good. Food was ok but better than any American flights in recent memory."
Cons: "Staff was courteous but not as service oriented as my initial flight to Munich the week prior which is the only reason for 3 stars. Not as friendly, fewer stops with drink cart and other refreshments"
Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."
Pros: "I would like a direct flight from Krakow to Chicago. Lufthansa is a very good airline to Poland. Would definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Moscow demanded that Lufthansa had to pay 500 dollars"
Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "only negative was whining child whose parents did not seem to care if whole plane was disrupted. Had tv available so watched olympics most of way home. Also, beer or wine with dinner"
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were great with lots of current movie and tv listings. the food was pretty good. We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."
Cons: "We had to pay to get seat assignments. it wasn't cheap and then they changed the seats we'd chosen to seats at the very back of the plane. The boarding process is chaotic, at least compared to American practices."

Bumpy nearly the whole way

No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made

The reply O gave before was meant for last leg of my flight from Tokyo on American Airlines to Dallas Forth Worth Intl.

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Cons: "I could not access the games the lady next to me, and others were playing. When I decided to watch movies the earphones were so small they kept falling out of my ears, and I am a small woman. It was a long flight from Tokyo to Dallas, and the lack of diversion became a major irritant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
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: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
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: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waited 3hrs to leave the runway"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
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: "Meal, comfort, crew"
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: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."
Pros: "Crew members provide better service than I expected. It seems that American Airline has increasingly improved its service which is a good sign. Food was good. A wide variety of movies and otger entertainment on board is offered on each passenger's personal screen."
Cons: "Space for seats in such a long flight should have been bigger. Compared to other Asian airlines, AA seems to be thrifty on seat space."
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "The onboard crew was very friendly and attentive. American’s service has been vastly improved on international flights over the past couple years. It’s always nice to have a good selection of on board entertainment to keep you busy for 10 hours."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized and I was told I wouldn’t be able to carry on my luggage even though I had flown 2 other American flights that week and had no problem. I measured my bag before starting my trip and it fit in the bin. After demanding an explanation from the gate agent. She let me board with it. The seats on every airline get smaller and smaller. have less leg room and are hard. I’m a 5’10 woman and was incredibly uncomfortable after a few hours."
Cons: "Movies selection"
Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."
Pros: "The flight crew were all very nice and attentive. The on-board entertainment kept me busy during my waking hours. I appreciated the complimentary blanket, pillow and earbuds."
Cons: "The quality of the food selections were ok but could have been better. The remote for the tv screen did not function well with the games. Also, the seats were very hard, sleep did not come easily."
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
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: "New plane with shades on windows. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Seats are on top of each other, very close space, too many people in that flight or should I say, too many seats for that short of space"
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
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: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
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: "Crew pleasant. Food nice."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Comfy and friendly. What's not to like up front?"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
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: "Electrical outlets. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Changed the time of the flight affecting our plans why we did buy this route. Couldn't check in online"
Pros: "The selection of movies was fantastic and the blanket and pillow that was provided was comfortable."
Cons: "The food was okay."
