Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."

Pros: "The coach seats were larger than those on domestic flights. The window glass was dimmable for ideal lighting."
Cons: "The arm rests did not go up all the way. This made it difficult to maximize comfort with my wife."

Pros: "Bad handling and organization by JAL ground management. There was no support at the gate or clear leadership or direction of what needed to happen or what was to be done for the passengers They dumped everything in the Malaysian ground agents to handle without clear direction. Very poor service and no accountability"

Cons: "Seat cushion could use more cushioning. Larger portions of drinks served"

Cons: "Good space with large seats. Good food and service."

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Had serious and consistent blockage to receive seat assignment from AAirlines. Round trip ticket with JAL but they code shared lax to tokyo with AA. Later AA refused to let me change THEIR seat assignment (3 scattered middle seats in economy). unless I bought an upgrade. They also said tic"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Seating and service"
Cons: "Flight to Haneda airport not Narita"

Pros: "JAL flights to LAX are always great. Good food too."

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Cabin and all associates accessories, seats and entertainment center needed replacement. Electrical outlets didn’t work. JAL retire that plane"

Pros: "Seats, movies, comfort"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"

Pros: "Friendly, clean. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to reserve a seat - apparently they don't allow Kayak customers to reserve seats now. I was forced into a middle seat and was uncomfortable and dehydrated the majority of the trip. Nice girl at baggage check said she'd ask a manager to move me, and to let them know at the gate, but the people at the gate said no. I felt discriminated against because I didn't book through them and/or I'm not Japanese. They historically love to put mushrooms in their food, like a fetish. This left me with one choice for the entree - some version of oyakodon - eggs and chicken. In my box there were two enormous chunks of fat/skin and another unidentifiable part of the chicken, and about the amount of edible chicken as 1 1/2 nuggets from Chick-Fil-A. There was more lotus root than chicken, so basically I had a box of rice and scrambled eggs with garnish. For the second meal, it was the Yoshinoya gyudon - a small serving of thinly sliced beef with rice. If I bought this fresh at a Yoshinoya restaurant, it would cost about $3. It's the rough equivalent of serving you a McDouble - cheap and filling and a coin toss if you get stomach pains. I lost that coin toss. Unless there is a big fare difference or I find out that their reserved seat policies are changed, I will choose ANA or another carrier. I used to enjoy JAL, but I cannot abide by idiotic decisions that seemed designed to punish people for using 3rd-party booking sites or who are not Japanese."

Pros: "Food was acceptable. Stewardess very helpful"
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: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."

Pros: "On time Cleanliness"
Cons: "The food for people with special needs is horrible Most of the staff has poor communication in English on international flights"

Pros: "Thier food tasted excellent!"
Cons: "Wish there was a vegetarian option too."

Pros: "As expected everything was not overly done nor less of comfort and services. The food was Excellent quality and prepared with care. The airplane was new types and flew fast and smooth."
Cons: "The Kansai airport was huge and super fancy. Shere number of people were like the Zoo and its designed to move people through all the retail shops to get to my gate."

Pros: "Flight was half full so was able to take aisle seat."
Cons: "Fight attendant service was poor. Even getting water for meal, the attendant 'forgets' to bring it."

Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Great service and terrific vegan meals served. Facilities were clean and personnel were very helpful and provided terrific service to the passengers."

Pros: "The food was good. Seats were as comfortable as any flight is."
Cons: "There were no diet soft drinks available on the flight."

Pros: "As usual A1 service all the way!"

Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."

Cons: "Seat was too hard"

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"

Cons: "The father next to me that spilled two drinks on me. I didn't even get an apology. Beyond sold out plane too..."

Pros: "Everything was perfect! Thank you for a great experience!"

Pros: "I am all right for travelling by Japan airlines this trips to Taipei. My hometown."

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"

Pros: "Everything! JAL employees go above and beyond to deliver perfect customer service with a genuine smile."

Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"

Pros: "Service with a smile goes even longer for long flights. Excellent service throughout the flight. Loved the feeling of spaciousness, even in Economy. Great sleep as a result."
Cons: "Number of movies available in Entertainment was limited, especially compared to competitors like Singapore Airlines. Ran out of good choices on a long flight."

Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."

Pros: "SERVICE was amazing and everything was very smooth"

Pros: "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."
Cons: "JAL entertainment system had comparably fewer movie choices vs. many other airlines including American, United, and Delta. Surprising that Studio Cathay actually featured more Japanese films than the JAL Magic V system."

Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"

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: "Customer service is great."

Cons: "Mid night snack can be improved, it’s too small a portion."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"

Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"

Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"

Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality and attention to detail."

Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"

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: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."

Pros: "Crews' performance was good."
Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."

Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."

Cons: "Both flights took off late one flight was over an hour late I missed my connecting flights and was forced to take 2 additional flights instead of my direct flight The food is Japanese cuisine, if you are ok with experimenting and like their cooking. The flight attendants were not able to communicate with us in English regarding our missed flights"

Pros: "ANA has one of the best friendly and courteous service. I was kept well fed through my flight and had a smooth flight."

Pros: "I like the whole experience overall I would definitely Fly ANA again"
Cons: "I like the whole experience overall"

Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."

Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"

Pros: "Crew was exceptional. QSuite very comfortable."

Pros: "They flight"
Cons: "Complementary hotel for long stops"

Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"

Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."

Pros: "Access to entertainments"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was more room for our legs than most airline provide. The entire staff as well as the pilot certainly know what the term “service” means!"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Pros: "Dallas to Doha wheel chair service and boarding was good."
Cons: "My parents did not get wheel chair in Delhi after that long,tiring journey..this is the service airline provide,it's so disgusting..they didn't even get the porter..they had to carry the heavy luggage when they have problem in walking..I am so disappointed.what is the use of this survey."

Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."
Cons: "Helper was literally dragging two whelchairs at a one time. Means two passengers sitting on two different whelchair was pulled by one helper. I actually want to share video with airline so they will understand what they are promissing and what they are providing to their customers."

Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."

Pros: "I like Qatar Airways very much. Ground and air personnel are all professional and courteous. I will fly Qatar every time I can."

My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "1-one hour delay in departure. Although pilot tries his best to reduce the delay time but still lost our connection flight. it is known that the whole operation is complex but still believe that effective cooperation by flight crew, ground personnel and others could result in a better outcome. the hotel chosen by the office at airport was not satisfactory. Qatar Airways customers deserve better treatment."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "I love the help given by ground crew in KLIA upon arrival. The crew waiting at the exit gate to make my transit quick and easy. The staff took me right to the flight gate, issue me the boarding past without me spending time to locate the transfer counter.. It was hassle free. Bravo! Please keep it up with this excellent service"
Cons: "The vegetarian food, noodle with bamboo shoot was too salty and plain."

Pros: "It felt comfortable."

Pros: "Food is terrible. Not what it used to be. Don't keep the bathrooms clean as they used to. Service just isn't as great as it used to be sadly. Entertainment is great tho!"

Pros: "Overal very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Sat on plan after boarding for an extended time before takeoff. I think it was a maintenance thing. It happens so no biggie. Table and magazine pocket needed cleaning from prior flights. Made me uneasy from a cleanliness point of view so they took a hit on comfort."

Cons: "Broke my bags."

Cons: "Wheel chair travellers not comfortable as they didnt find help and also have to wait for long time to get their turn"

Pros: "Not many passengers got to spread out"

Cons: "The food was not amazing, for a near 17 hour flight, I think 1 more snack would have been welcome. Also a personal bottle of water would have been great. I had to ask for water several times and I noticed lots of other passengers doing the same."

I again asked for vegetarian, and was told they didn't have any. The white guy in the next row asked for the same, and it magically appeared. The attendant noticed my shocked stare and then gave me a veggie meal too. 2. On a 16 hour flight, our tv screens didn't work. None of the attendants even came by to check, even after repeatedl requests. 3. My 6 and 9 year old kids would like to know why they didn't get any of the courtesy toys/coloring books that were given to other similar age kids. I don't want to tell them it was due to their skin color. 4. Even a request for water turned into a tug of war after we had waited for almost 20 minutes. I finally poured it out myself."

Cons: "The screen blacked out mid flight (on a 16 hr long flight!) and there was nothing anyone really tried to do to fix it except 'reset' which did nothing. Unfortunate this happened when the flight was so long."

Cons: "D seats are exrremely uncomfortable. Leg space is as good as none. My knees were hurting as they were touching the seat infront of me. D crew gave very slow service. I was sick and needed hot water, even after calling for ur for more than 4 times , the crew constantly forgot about it. Food was alright. I dont see myself ever flighting back with Emirates jus for because of the seat discomfort and lack of leg space"

Not too bad. 3 weeks before my vacation to Myanmar, China airlines moved my return connecting flight from Yangon to Taipei a day early, which meant I would need to cancel hotel reservations in Yangon and would be stranded in Taipei overnight. I called China Airlines and the only option was to move my 2nd flight a day early. No apologies or reason why my connecting flight was changed a day earlier."

Pros: "Boarding was disorganized"

Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."
