Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Great airline with friendly staff, on time departure. Unfortunately their website is really difficult."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and courteous; inflight meal was quite good and the prearrival snack of a tuna sandwich was one of the best I have ever had."
Cons: "The flight had some occasional bumpy spots but that is not ANA's fault. The landing was kind of like a violent shock and the plane seemed to slide a little sideways but everything was fine."
Cons: "The crew of ANA was incredible. I think it is my best flying experience to Asia"
Pros: "Crew service is excellent!"
Cons: "The seat is really cramp and tight!"
Pros: "crewe were excellent"
Cons: "nothing !"
Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."

Cons: "Been more polite especially mike in your mileage program."
Pros: "Meal, crew"
Cons: "1. inside temperature was so cold -especially at the 3rd route from la to tokyo -. 2. Economy seats are not declined, which means less pereonal space. 3. The worst is in-flight entertainment system, UI is so poorly developed, most contents do not provide english subtitles."
Cons: "the seats are not reclined, not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Crews were friendly and helpful. I never had economy seat that goes as flat as theirs. I liked the safety instruction video."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of food options quickly. Wasn't a problem for me. But, they should know better."

Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable. Entertainment choices were limited."
Pros: "Thoughtfulness, professionalism, patience and a lot of love put into the service."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed on time....excellent service, too."
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. The seats in premium economy are perfect for long flights and the food was great."
Cons: "Nothing bad"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and the food was really good."
Pros: "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."
Pros: "The seat was nice"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow, it took almost two hours just to get offered a drink. There wasn't any offering after boarding and I had to ask just to get water. The food was quite bad, normally I would choose the Japanese meal, however, both the Japanese and International options were poor. The staff seemed unorganized and did not follow a set protocol."
Pros: "It was alright."
Cons: "Prepare to wake up with neck pain."
Pros: "Don't cheap out on your flights to Japan because this ANA flight from New York/JFK to Haneda was the correct way to go. Japanese-style hospitality, respect and quality of service (which is beyond the heavens) shows from check-in to landing (and even post-landing.) The in-flight meals, inspired by Japanese recipes of the Japanese destination or origin, were finely made - that goes even for Economy Class. When there was a delay that was ultimately out of their control, they made things right with post-landing arrangements. Never take any other country's airline when flying into Japan - always always ALWAYS take ANA whenever you can. (Avoid codeshares, too!!)"
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked."
Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."
Pros: "My flight was really comfortable, thanks"
Cons: "The thing I didn't like it was when I was in Tokyo I stayed overnight I didn't know what I expected for first timer like me I wish they give me some kind of a voucher food, nothing big but I really like in Tokyo though thanks"
Pros: "Very nice plane, enough room, didn't feel cramped"
Cons: "Had to switch gates 2 times"
Pros: "Seat was good and slept like a baby"
Cons: "Nothing really, slept the whole way"

Pros: "The staff was so very helpful and nice. Thanks a lot!"
Cons: "The great disinter service from the flight attendants made up for the delays."
Pros: "Very kind flight attendants with amazing service!"
Cons: "They ran out of the two food options, so many people were stuck with the fish option. The entertainment section was just okay."

Pros: "The food was really good, service was great, and nothing to complain about"
Cons: "I don't have any complaints"
Cons: "Food was a bit salty. Bread was so cold."
Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "The most comfortable economy flight I have experienced so far. The service, food and entertainment options were all excellent. Definitely looking forward to our return flight back to YVR!"
Pros: "ANA has one of the best friendly and courteous service. I was kept well fed through my flight and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "I wish the English announcements were not in so heavily thick accent and more understandable. Transfer from the plane to the airport is quite tedious when the plane is parked away from the airport. I wish they would make transferring carry-on more disabled friendly."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Pros: "Cabin crews are efficient and very polite. Film selection is fine."
Cons: "Food is boring. I always find myself hungry after flight, as I couldn't find much to eat so left a lot. Maybe I should bring my own food from next time..."
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."
Pros: "The plane they used was B-787"
Cons: "There was no entertainment flight system. The seats were also skimpy as it was a domestic flight"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight- on time and clean."
Cons: "Service was good but not particularly friendly or frequent."
Pros: "The flight attendants were absolutely incredible. One of the best crews I've ever flown with."
Cons: "The checkin in LAX airport was confusing. We didn't need visas to travel, but the lady insisted that we needed. An AA supervisor had to intervene to check us in."
Pros: "The flight attendant was awesome. She was extremely friendly and very welcoming."
Cons: "Because if the delay from LAX, I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa. The ladies were able to help me get on a flight that left a 3 hours later. It would’ve been nice if AA had let the connecting flight people know this could happen."
Pros: "Check in was very good. The seats can be more space."
Cons: "I think the breakfast should be better."
Pros: "Crew was as good as can be and helpful during boarding."
Cons: "Chair seat belts weren’t long enough for me I’m 6’2 290 I know I’m not the average size but it wouldn’t hurt to add a little length."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, they made sure we were comfortable and would ask if there was anything we needed."

Cons: "Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further."
Pros: "Nothing, we had to deplane."

Pros: "The bathrooms were clean compared with other airlines."
Cons: "We selected seats together as a couple but the seats on the flight were separated. Customer service could not help but asked us to make arrangement with the person between us. The same seating arrangement happened on our return flight 18 days later. Once again was told nothing could be done. I really do not know why both flights the seat assigment were wrong when selected basic on the aircraft configuration. The airline is attempt to make the passenger to pay more for seats."
Cons: "The last cabin was very packed and almost there was no available seat. However, the front cabin was not crowded but a cabin attendant didn’t let me move to other seat at the front cabin even though I was sick and coughing a lot."

Cons: "no TV or movie screen"

Pros: "Entertainment options were great. Also the staff were a huge help, especially the gate attendant who helped to get our four seats together"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3-4 hours due to mechanical issues. A complimentary service would have gone a long way with smoothing it over"
Pros: "I liked that the flight crew worked hard to get us to Tokyo as comfortably as they were able."
Cons: "I booked a flight on JAL, but had to fly on American. None of the JAL amenities or services were available. Also our flight was delayed by 4+ hours."

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food and WiFi connection was horrible. Crews were unfriendly."

Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Once in the air things went well."
Cons: "We spent more time on the tarmac than in the air. The plane was unusually noisy on landing. There was little room"
Pros: "Watch movies, charge your phone, play games, and snack away after meals. Had an excellent flight. I have to say that the crew made the experience very relaxing. Departure and arrival were as stated, maybe a few minutes over, but it is not like JAL can control the weather. Great experience overall!"
Cons: "It would be nice to get complimentary wifi access, even if it's for a total usage time of 30 minutes, to text/email loved ones about departure and arrival. Still have good access options."
Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."
Pros: "It was a great flight. We took off right away and were able to get off the plane immediately at LAX."

Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great crew, lots of food & drink options, great screens with excellent selection of movies & games."
Cons: "Long flight. We did not realize that we needed to claim baggage and then re-check it at Japan Airlines for a domestic flight. Airport personnel were understanding and helpful, so no crisis."
Pros: "My seat changed by a crew when I boarded on the plane and I thought that was rude but then I realized that all the row seats were empty. The newest airplane was clean, nice and had a cool entertainment system. All the crews were very friendly, nice and outstanding customer service especially one of the elder crews (Asian man) was very attentive and caring about all passengers. I hope he will be on the board for my return."
Cons: "No so far."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Cons: "I didn't know it was American Airlines. I would have bought a different ticket had I known it wasn't JAL."
Pros: "They got us seats on a Latam flight later in the day."
Cons: "I don't like being bumped from a flight when you have e-tix in hand from a month previous purchase for three travelers."
Cons: "bag got lost checking it at the gate in dtw, bag went to santa barbara, completely wrong airport. huge inconvenience"
Pros: "Efficiency and price"
