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."
Cons: "No additional comment"
Pros: "I had a nice exit row seat so that was nice"
Cons: "The food was not good and there also wasn’t enough of it which is really bizarre for an international flight that’s 14 hours long"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The meal choices were great !"
Pros: "I did upgrade to economy premium which is why the flight was very comfortable. Would not have upgraded except I made a mistake in the currency conversion and thought the upgrade was cheaper than it was."
Cons: "Did not really like the chef's cuisine as opposed to the one on my outward flight to Japan which was excellent."
Pros: "Seat in biz on 380 was comfortable. Crew good not great."
Cons: "Food terrible. Seat maintenance not good. Armless and remote didn't work properly. Boarding needed work. No biz priority."
Pros: "I wish all long haul flights were like this. Very clean and well maintained cabin space, good quality food, very attentive, helpful and polite cabin crew. Never thought I’d be able to say this, but the 14 hour flight with two young children in economy was a really enjoyable experience with JAL!"
Cons: "Really no complaints"
Pros: "Flight experience in JAL is excellent."
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: "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: "Excelent good service.Staff are friendly."
Cons: "Almost i like everything"
Cons: "How about being stranded at Narita Airport due to bad weather AND not helping your passengers rebook. Told us the flight was cancelled at 10:30pm when suppose to fly out at 7:30pm. No trains or hotels available, only way to rebook was through their phone service? Which didn’t open until 8am. Why not rebook at the ticket desk, guess what? You can’t!"
Pros: "Food was excellent and service came frequently. In-flight entertainment was amazing."
Pros: "Premium comfort seats are worth it especially on longer flights; totally recommend. Plum wine is a great add to menu"
Cons: "You need to call to reserve seat. Then was told I could only upgrade at the airport and not on the phone, risking to loose the few available premium comfort seats. Old movies. Poor red wine. Food still just okay."
Pros: "Japan Airlines gets it right. The boarding was very calm and efficient. The attendants were working the whole flight to make the trip pleasant. Food was good."
Cons: "There could have been a few more diverse choices on the entertainment channels but generally OK. The one complaint I had was that it was hot on most of the flight."
Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the gluten free meal I requested ahead of time was the best airline gluten free meal I've ever had!! :)"
Pros: "It was pretty comfortable for a 14hour flight and all the flight attendants were super nice and very helpful. Different then most airlines in my opinion. Next time I go to Japan it will be with Japan Airlines no doubt!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like Was leaving the plane."
Cons: "Plane was very hot"
Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."
Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."
Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."
Pros: "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "Food can be better."
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."
Pros: "Friendly and respectful staff, great meals, tasty!"
Pros: "The staff tried to accommodate all of our needs. Everyone was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not the worst but not so great"
Pros: "Everything bad"
Cons: "Bad customer service, I don't speak English good , can't understand them jet blue"
Pros: "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
Cons: "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."
Pros: "Good service, good food. On time arrival. Comfortable seats. Great airline."
Pros: "Staff was great and plane was clean"
Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"
Pros: "Japan Airlines is a good airline. They treated my family and I well during our flight home. The food was excellent and healthy. We received hot towels before our meals and the staff were friendly and courteous, which is expected of Japanese service, in general. I loved Japan and coming back to the US on a Japanese airline was the best choice! Thanks!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Same thing as above"
Pros: "Couldn't ask for anything more than what was offered. Flying is never exactly a pleasant experience, but JAL makes it as painless as possible. Food was excellent and staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times."
Pros: "I asked for a window seat but if was not available. I was told to go to an information desk which were not too close and it turned out that they couldn't help."
Pros: "Overall flight was comfortable and staff was friendly."
Cons: "No details were provided about the food on offer. I didn't know what I was eating and no options were provided"

Cons: "The food on my flight was just ok. Going out to Japan the food was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I was a little disappointed on the way back."
Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "delicious meals with good drink selections. cabin crews were nice and have smiles on them all time. I saw crew provided excellent services to a young mom traveled with 1 kid and 1 infant with her mom on board throughout the whole flight which were impressive."
Cons: "I believe the air line cut down snacks between meals (my flight were 13 hours) which was little disappointed. Restrooms were not as clean as before although they were way better than other airlines. Crew's English speaking still need improvement. Please keep up the good works! I will flight JAL again soon."

Cons: "Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later. I was injured and in a wheelchair and this was not only a major inconvenience it was also poorly handled for someone who needed additional help. It was every man for himself. I was very disappointed"
Pros: "very accommodating for handicap"
Pros: "I liked that the captain was very informative. We were on the plane for awhile and captain let passenger know why and when the plane was going to take off. The crew were very friendly and ready to assist."

Cons: "The seat is small"
Pros: "The plane was clean and the staff was great."
Pros: "The crew was so helpful and accommodating with my meal and all aspects of the flight! They were just so nice and I usually done get that with other airlines that I've flown.

Anyone tell ne"

Pros: "Lots of space on airbus. Great choices of entertainment though Singapore airlines has much more choices."

Pros: "Everything was good overall"
Cons: "I would like more movie and tv options"
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."

Pros: "friendliness of crew and ease of boarding"
Cons: "food was ok"
Pros: "Comfortable seat , surprisingly good food"
Cons: "Where to begin....The flight was delayed an hr leaving Hong Kong. Then we were rerouted without notice to Newark International. Upon landing and changing our plans, we were told we were actually proceeding to our original destination in JFK. However, we have to wait for a new crew and we're stuck on the tarmac, on the plane for additional couple hrs. The experience was very aggravating, especially after such a long flight. Additionally, I find Cathays lack of transperancy with their customers very unprofessional. Sad as this is my preferred airline to flight but will take this into account for future bookings."
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "I personally don't like how you can't choose seats until check in. Although the food menu states that noodles and snacks were available upon request, we were turned down several times when we requested. Food served, especially main entree, were barely edible. It was probably the worst airline food I've ever had, and I travel very frequently. When we arrived back at JFK from our trip, it took over 2 hours for our luggage to arrive at baggage claim."
Pros: "When you see a big plane you always wonder how long it will take but Cathay Pacific was very efficient during the boarding and deplaning. It was a very long flight and they kept everybody happy with a smile. Extremely accommodating."
Pros: "I would like most of the employees of Cathay Pacific works in your company, they are very nice and also very kind to treat customers and kindly help us to solve problems during our traveling. I really appreciated. and I can say nothing but many thanks to all of Cathay Pacific employees. Ying Tao, SUN"

Pros: "Everything went us per schedule. The staff nice and polite."

Pros: "Crew is always very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Need to have more movie and tv show choices. The food could also be a bit better."
Pros: "Good communication about departure delay, check in was fast and efficient."

Pros: "The quick response of flight attendants and the comfort of the economy seats."
Pros: "The food is great"
Pros: "Excellent service. Very clean, mostly."
Cons: "Tight seats. Not the worst, but still tight. Bathrooms could get messy and unstocked."
Pros: "Smooth, quiet and comfortable overnight flight from Vancouver to JFK"
Pros: "The staff both when checking in and on board were excellent. The seating space was better than other international flights we have taken in the past and since. The food was better than what we received in the other flight we took later the same day (with another airline). We highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "The entertainment options could be better - but this is just a minor flaw in their overall service."
Pros: "excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "no bottled water, the tap water tasted terrible and chemically treated! also the flight was delayed 15 minutes but ended up landing 50 minutes late, i cannot see how they were not able to make up the time in the air for something so small. I also saw premium economy and asked for an upgrade, they wanted $1000, which when i saw the cabin and the amenities was happy i didn't pay for because compared to Japan Airlines which charges a fraction of this for the upgrade, Cathay is a shame."
