Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Mid night snack can be improved, it’s too small a portion."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, attentive crew; good amount of storage in business class; very good food with an excellent variety."
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 crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It took a while for them to serve the first meal and I don't know that there was a need for a second meal. I would have preferred to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"
Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Pros: "Their service"
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: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "Meals were decent. Staff friendly. Had no problems and was able to sleep a bit."
Cons: "The economy seats on my plane were strange, they didn't really recline but rather the bottom part of the seat moves forward to make your body less vertical."
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
Pros: "Staff is awesome"

Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality and attention to detail."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
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: "Food, crew, and entertainment were great. They give you snacks and drinks right away."
Cons: "Elbow room is tight so pray you don't sit next to someone on the larger side. And the seats and tables look well used."
Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."
Pros: "Very clean plane. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Lots of leg room. The seat doesn't till back, but instead the seat slides forward. I wouldnt mind to fly again with ANA. Terrific entertainment system and movies."
Cons: "Minor thing is the headset, which doesn't provide the best sound, but it will do. Food options can improve"

Cons: "The quality of food. Maybe the food is okay, the heating up of them tends to be over done."
Cons: "It would be better if it was on time"
Cons: "The airline ran out of meal choices before reaching row 5 of the economy class. Seat armrest were locked in place and did not pivot up to allow using the adjacent empty seat.

Pros: "staff service very good, price is good"
Cons: "crowded flights. seats too close"
Pros: "Since I had no check-in luggage on my way to Manila from Los Angeles, my medicine bag was packed in my carry-on with wheels. When, in Manila, I was forced to check-in that piece of luggage, I forgot to move my medication into my backpack which I carried with me on board. In Taipei, I asked the ground crew to retrieve my medication from my check-in carry-on. The team worked diligently and made sure that my medication was handed to me as I was one boarding the plane with the last few. I was delighted by the level of service and the fact that I was able to take my medication before the flight took off. What a difference in attitude between the Manila and Taipei ground crews. Thank you Taipei ground crew!"
Cons: "No seat number on the ticket. Wrong gate number. Food has hairs in it. I have back pain problem...was asking for the outside seating so I can stand up one in a while but got Negative answer for both ways....don’t think to book with you guys and China Airlines again.....very painful experience."
Pros: "Flight crew, food very tasty and good portion size, good selection of entertainment, bathrooms clean and well maintained."
Cons: "A little bigger seat and a bit more leg room would be nice."
Cons: "I got sick on this flight, and the concern expressed by the crew was about 0. Also, they don't understand the meaning of ice water. Water, with lots of ice! Serving an American destination, they should know how much ice Americans like in drinks. Normally not a big deal, but when you really need to cool down to keep from barfing, it is important."

I did get a bulkhead aisle seat after the doors were closed, but I would like to know the truth from service people."
Pros: "Better couch legroom than any of the US carries I have flown overseas. Newer plane and attentive flight crew. There was a decent movie and entertainment selection and the meals were reasonably good. Crew was very attentive to keeping the bathrooms clean, which on a long flight is a very nice.

Cons: "Waiting anoher 4 hours for a plane to leave."

Cons: "I couldn't get assigned seat options out of Ho Chi Minh."
Cons: "I had surgery on my leg a few days before my flight and it was doctors order to have my leg elevated on the flight home. I spoke to the airline at the desk before boarding and told them my condition and that i needed a seat to lay down and prop my leg up and they assured me i was going to have that. Once i boarded they gave me a seat with not enough leg room and i couldn't elevate my leg. I tried to tell they flight attendants over and over about my condition and they moved me to another seat that didn't even make a difference. My leg got extremely swollen on the plane ride and i had to go to urgent care as soon as i landed at LAX. i will never fly China Airlines again, i want a refund!!!!!!"
Pros: "I liked that I eventually arrived to my destination and was able to go home."
Cons: "Was not notified that my flight was cancelled. Remained on hold for over 2 hours as I had to beg and plead with China Airlines to find and place me on another flight that was not days after my original arrival date. Did not get any form of an apology or upgrade for the stress and inconvenience caused by the last minute cancellation. Taipei to LAX: had to wait in line to check in for 1.5 hours, as there were only 3 China Airline people working the check in desks, I have posted a video on instagram of the massive line that I stood in. https://instagram.com/p/BHobbM0A6mP/"
