Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
Our flight was cancelled and rebooked for 6 hours later. We did not get notification of this change. My gluten free meal was not on the flight that was changed. All the airline reps that I spoke with were very unhelpful.
Announcements were made in Japanese, English, and Thai. We were warned about turbulence several times in all languages. Flight to Bangkok from Tokyo had a USB port to charge my iphone, but flight back to Tokyo did not. Service from cabin attendants was excellent. One apologized twice for running out of the lunch selection I wanted to have, even though I was happy with the chicken curry. Courteous staff and pleasant experience, even with a competitive airfare. I would fly JAL again.
Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)
A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta.
The seats were unbearable. I have flown an international flight before and it wasn't nearly as uncomfortable as this flight was. You people purposely make coach unbearable so that we pretty much have to suck it up and pay the extra money to fly in the better section where when I flew in Lufthansa it was comfy and I had no problems. I will NEVER fly with condor again after this trip. You are a pathetic excuse for an airline
clean. Seat covers nice and clean. furniture color scheme pleasant.
1. Seat distance by far too less.
2. seat width on the borderline of being acceptable.
3.. No entertainment, not even a flight info screen available.
4. Only instant coffee available. If it is instant, cappuccino or other café specialities should be available. Emirates and Etihad make the example.
5. Food okay - but not for french airline. No innovation, no thought in it. Standard "how do I get the cattle fed the cheapest possible" food.
6. Electrical / USB / Network plugs or WIFI unknown.
All flight attendants were very friendly. Their polished appearance showed a level of professionalism that can sometimes be lacking with certain airlines. The seats featured foot and neck rests which provided some extra comfort during our long flight. Having a large selection of movies to watch in my personal monitor was fantastic. If I had the opportunity to choose Japan Airlines again, I definitely would.
Our flight from Bangkok to Tokyo had WiFi for purchase, but our flight from Tokyo to Hawaii did not. Had I known, I would not have purchased a 24 hour plan. There was some turbulence during the flight (some continued for over 30 minutes). I am used to the captain or crew of the plane making an announcement to passengers about what is happening and when to expect "relief", but there was no communication. Just an added touch to make passengers feel better.
First nonstop flight to Germany - I had 2 seats and could stretch, that was great.
There's only 4 free movies to watch (2 of them for kids) - the rest was 8 euros per film! Ridiculous !! My carry on (the same bag I used for years) was too big for their standards and had to be checked. They did this for free but only the first flight. When I return, they said it would cost me ...?
The airplane itself was nice. Comfortable. Plane wasn't full so everyone had plenty of room.
Food was terrible. People kept saying they were hungry. Entertainment was also terrible. Not much was available to watch and I've never had to pay for headphones until this flight. The crew was arguing amongst themselves the whole time. 2 blonde women,flight attendants, argued throughout the flight.
9:40pm flight was 1 1/2 hours late caused us to miss connection in frankfurt to florence - flight attendants reassured passengers that all connections would be re-booked before we landed and info would be at gate when we arrived-we got to frankfurt & there was no info at all about connections-we went to original gate & by the time we got there the gates in that terminal were all closed down & no employees - finally found a rebooking desk & next flight was not for 5 hours-return trip was even worse 18 hour delay & bused to hotel
