Cons: "JAL LAX Ground staff. Not helpful."
Pros: "The crew and food both are amazing."

The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"

Pros: "Courteous cabin crews, must be from Japanese culture."
Cons: "On Feb.16, 2018 JL745 Narita to Mnl, flight was delayed, though it was constantly announced but not the reason why. Other than that, I will always fly JAL whenever possible."
Pros: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."
Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Pros: "The crew, the flight, the pilot to cabin communications, the food, USB hookup, and the movie selection was amazing. I am so happy that I flew Japan Airlines on my return trip. I would highly recommend them for your international travels."

Cons: "I did not like that we could not book our seats until 72h before departure."
Cons: "Seat was too hard"
Pros: "Extremely kind staff, spacious seating, good food and great entertainment. You can only make an 11 hour flight so good but they did it"
Cons: "11 hour flight! Can't do much about that"
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Pros: "Cabin staff. Special meal. Cleanliness."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "everything was perfect!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was professional, friendly and courteous. It's always refreshing to fly an Asian airline for the impeccable customer service. The 787 left me with minimal jet lag. The odd shaped pillows provided great back support."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but old fashioned. The WiFi was spotty and it would have been nice to have Asian food options."
Pros: "JAL 787 Coach Product is better than AA Coach 777 product. Wider Coach seats. 787 aircraft is more comfortable overall (less noisy, higher humidity, higher pressure) resulting in a better experience after my travel."
Cons: "Meals are not fantastic; they never seem to be in coach. Much of the entertainment seemed similar to what was on the same aircraft when I traveled three months earlier."
Pros: "Enjoyed the greeting, politeness and food"
Cons: "More English speaking would be preferred"
Pros: "Staff was great and everything went according to schedule."
Cons: "The food was bad, but this is my first time having such bad food on JAL."
Cons: "The main entree was not very good."
Pros: "Seating is comfortable. Lots of entertainment (for free), free alcohol, and you can adjust your own window tint"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. I think their system went down. Food wasn't bad. But I mean really is airline food ever good?"
Pros: "The cabin crew is very nice , pleasant & the captain did a great job!"
Cons: "Maybe a change in your food menu that you can include some continental items."
Pros: "evening flight. not too crowded"
Cons: "delayed by 1 hour meal was so-so"
Cons: "Food was below standard."
Pros: "Wonderful crew..nice plane and comfortable seats!"
Cons: "No inseat power or usb on the monitor"
Pros: "Overall service was excellent."
Cons: "There are small metal boxes under the from seats in coach which resulted in less leg room. For such a long flight to have leg room limited even more than normal was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing... Being put on the wrong airline is incredibly degrading ..."
Cons: "I paid for JAL and was put on American airlines YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY BUSINESS AGAIN ... Kayak or jp\american airline. I hope you hire a manager who doesn't lie to their customers... Don't think it's a lie ?? That's BC greed is blinding. Good day"
Pros: "They arrived 30 minutes early!!"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and convenient Food was delicious"
Cons: "No bad things to say"
Pros: "Again, the crew was extremely polite and accomodating. I’d fly with them again!"
Cons: "Chair isn’t comfortable."
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
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: "Everything was good but we were not able to select seats on the leg from Tokyo to Nagoya until arrive at check in and by that time all seats assigned and we could not be seated together and had to have middle seats. ANA needs to work this out..."
Cons: "The sound for the entertain in seat 26G never worked....unsatisfactory for such a new aircraft “Dreamliner”, make it a dream."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats were substantially more cramped than the other flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food can be better and Entertainment was poor There should be more choices available. WiFi was spotty only 150 MB was available after paying. It should be free in business class like other airlines"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "The way they board"
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Pros: "That it didn’t crash"
Cons: "It was very delayed and then the luggage still hasn’t come out"
Pros: "Typical ANA quality as always."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "The 787 was awesome. Very comfortable. Great staff and service."
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth. Stewardesses were very helpful."
Pros: "The crew were helpful, attentive and nice. There were vacant seats so i was able to change to a more comfortable seat."
Cons: "The food was horrible. The selections for movies is quite limited."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Pros: "crew and food was great"
Cons: "seat cushion was a bit on the dead side."
Pros: "I liked the way the pilot talked to us and let us know what was going on and still got us there on time even though our departure was slightly delayed."
Cons: "There had to be something better than pretzels."
Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."
Cons: "I thought I would get a little more than a few extra inches in Economy Plus. Maybe an overnight packet (ear plugs, eye mask, toothbrush?) and/or a foot rest for the extra money, but it was literally only a few extra inches of space."
Pros: "Nice short flight. Houston is easy to navigate. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "They didnt want to board my twins and I early so we blocked the aisle as i got them sorted. I had to sit over the aisle from my children as it was a 2 2 seating but the staff didnt seem to pursue where their mother was even though i was 1 row back. They didn't need me but i thought they should have at least enquired as to where the parent was of 2 11 yr olds. They were also curt trying to rush us off the flight as my daughter was trying to locate a lost item as we arrived. She has limited sight and we need time to get off and to find things.... given she has lost an iPad, and very expensive reading glasses and other things on the trips that span 24 - 36 hrs."
Pros: "Everything went well. ANA customer service wonderful, both at the counter and on the plane. Loved the meals, and fun to watch the available movies and shows at your seat."
Pros: "The time is on time ."
Pros: "short flight ready to get home"
Pros: "Bigger plane..or more room between seats.. Great service. Next time will try to go both ways in ANA"
Pros: "The crew is awesome and food is quite good"
Cons: "Seat is terrible it's more like domestic flight than international, boarding is terrible because we have to take a bus by standing from terminal to flight"
Pros: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Cons: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Pros: "Great airline!"
Cons: "some of the gates can be long walk"
Pros: "ANA has been running a top notch game recently. NRTcanbea mess particularly if you're transitioning due to security, but ANA does a good job with the passengers, food and flight."
Cons: "Would like to listen to ATC"
Pros: "Good good, good service, and good equipment."
Pros: "Incredible service"
Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service."
Pros: "They had good movies and music of my choice."
Cons: "One flight attendant out of all others showed arrogant behaviors and facial expression. I was sort of disappointed because I chose ANA because of a reputation of their service and modesty embedded in the Japanese culture but not this time. I should have written down her name."
Pros: "The food on board was great! Crew members were friendly!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were always smiling and very engaging!"
Pros: "Crew and service was awesome"
Cons: "Not enough choices of entertainment"
Cons: "Exit door seats, which are normally good, were extremely close together. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"
Cons: "Check in process was horrible at TKS, extremely unknowledgeable gate agents, took 6 people and 1.5 hours to check and pay for bags."
Cons: "United did not allocate to code share flight on correct date. I was rufused to be on the board at the ticket counter and ANA code share company ask to call to united 1-800 #. I missed the flight and ended up buying one way ticket from other air line with my own expense."
Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."
Cons: "Surprised that their recently acquired 787s don't all have WLAN! Wanted to do some work ... but ... maybe enforced disconnection is a good thing sometimes :)"
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly staff, smooth check-in and boarding. I love the simplified, smaller Boarding Pass that can actually fit into your passport and doesn't stick out as a sore thumb."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "The food. the personable flight attendants. The whole experience is amazing."
Cons: "Lack of English movies on the ife. Mediocre headphones in business class."
Pros: "staff was great in business"
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "Great seats in business class. Lots of privacy. Great service as well."
Cons: "American style Food could have been better. Didn't try the Japanese food."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive service, good movie selection on new screens."
Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."
Pros: "As expected from the Japanese, super polite snd patient."
Cons: "If I was going to pick on something, it would be the English announcements which were somewhat difficult to understand."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "All old movies in English"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"
Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"
Pros: "The supervisor on flight Doha to Charles de Gaulle was very helpful and knowledgeable. He explains to me th e process of how to help a person who is having a big problem to walk , Qatar Airways has a special service for person in needs of wheelchairs . Thanks a lot to that gentleman."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "The food was disgusting The plane is dirty The bags are treated badly"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "Everything !!!"
Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Pros: "All would have been good if there was no animal inside a 14hr long flight. Dog allowed to use restroom that passengers uses and it was a BIG dog in a controlled environment for a 14 hour long flight. Hugely disappointed with the pet policy of Qatar airways, especially for all the parents traveling with kids."
Cons: "HUGE DOG INSIDE A 14 HR FLIGHT FROM QATAR TO CHICAGO DISAPPOINTED WITH QATAR AIRWAYS PET POLICY"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "Great amenities and service - fed often throughout trip and great console with games, movies, etc."
Cons: "The neck rest was a bit tall and deep for a shorter person with a smaller neck - it caused me some discomfort while trying to rest."
Pros: "They printed all 3 of my boarding passes for my connecting flights when I first checked in, made me worry about less"
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Pros: "Plane, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Coach class is not for long haul flights"
Pros: "It was booked for my elderly parents and they were very pleased by the service they received."
Pros: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
Pros: "The flight attendents were chilled. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "The food is much tastier in business class. Used to be better in economy, but that has changed."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "The food was very good, I liked vegetarian options and my stomach doesn't hurt after the plane food as usual. I like the bathrooms clean and nice smelling soap. The crew was very attentive and eager to please their guest but consistent and insisting on the safety rules (belts buckled up and seats in upright position)"
Cons: "There wasn't many good options for entertainment. Only a couple new movies although I liked the TED talks. Also I liked the plane but I wish there were some foot steps and more comfortable head support on the seats. I didn't like also strange option for Golden members in economy seats to be able to "order" food before regular people. There were only 3 options and everyone had the same choice. So basically all that crew does is just asking which course gold members want an hour before serving. It seemed silly with no actual benefit."
Pros: "Very courteous!"
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Cons: "Requested Asian vegetarian mean but available was non vegetarian. Led screen did not working."
Pros: "On board crew are excellent."
Cons: "Ground staff requires training specifically on communication related to boarding. Travelers were confused as to what zone is boarding at a given time as there were no announcements. Pathetic boarding process."
Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "It was a long flight from US but was comfortable. Staff was courteous."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."
Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Pros: "Business class is top notch in Qatar airways. From the moment you get in the Business Cabin, you start feeling the great service onboard. The crew is great, the seats are very comfortable, and the food is very tasty along with the wine pairing. Overall, the experience was well worth it!"
Cons: "The problem was the boarding in Miami International airport, it was quite disorganized even for business class, but more so for economical class."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
Pros: "New planes, Excellent Service"
Cons: "Meals could have been better"
Pros: "all the crew they were awesome it's my favorite airline QR⛤⛥⛦⛤⛥⛦⛤"
Cons: "I like every things"
Pros: "Service was excellent and food was all right. I do not eat meat or dairy but there was still some food for me on this flight."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "They didnt let me sit with my family and my seats were changed twice after i was checked in without notifying me. I have anxiety issues and it was really hard"
Pros: "Food and entertainment on board was good"
Cons: "They delayed boarding by over 30 mins (without any notices on any screens), and then kept us on the flight for another 30 mins after doors shut before pushing back from the gate. Overall flight was delayed over an hour. The pilot tried to make up the time on the way, and we had a connection officially scheduled for 45 mins layover. We requested the crew if we could disembark earlier but she said no. We missed our connection."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal and they didn't have one for me. The breakfast was terrible. Green beans and strawberry yoghurt!?"
Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"
Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."

Pros: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Food isn’t tasty at all"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"
Pros: "Not a lot to like. Some flight attendants were nice. Others not so much."
Cons: "Filthy toilets at the beginning of the flight. If they were ever cleaned they didn’t get behind the toilet or the walls. The walls stained with something dripping. Paint peeling in toilet. No room at all. I am small and with seat in front pushed back I couldn’t move."
Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("
Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"
Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."
Cons: "Did not know that we had to download entertainment app So consequently no inflight entertainment Pack in like sardines"
Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"
Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."

Pros: "It got me home in one piece safe and sound, what more can you ask for."

Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Pros: "I liked everything from crew to the plane"
Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"
Pros: "The crew take time to talk to you, and everyone of them has a smile. The in flight meals were great, not typical airline TV dinners. They were good meals. The entertainment selection is outstanding, especially for a 14-hour flight. power outlets work, and they even have snacks in the galley area like Lufthansa so if you need a soft drink, coffee or candy...it is there all during the flight. A long flight could not be made easier"
Cons: "Flight from LAX was delayed 2 hours so I've missed my flight to Auckland. I'm still in Sydney.....a debacle!"
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"

Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."
Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"

A most Uncomfortable flight back to Melbourne Qantas take a look at Jet Blue. ..this should be your benchmark in Economy Travel...."

Pros: "Loved the new aircrafts, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive. We landed 40 mins earlier than expected, the captain really sped the whole way and I didn't feel a thing!! The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else. I enjoy the Tapas box for those that are vegan, kosher, gluten free, etc....PS-the bathrooms are smaller"
Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."

Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "I didn't like having my seat assigned at the gate. I booked this flight months ago, but yet somehow I got the very last row of the plan. Which is the noisiest location with the least amount of room. On the flight back they put me in the second to last row, even though there were about 10 seats empty scattered throughout the plan. Made no sense to me."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class so had more room, nicer seats. No lines at TSA, had the first gate past security so a short walk. Nice shopping and food choices."
Cons: "No meal served on flight, only drinks and cookies / popcorn. No entertainment at all. You have to provide your own device. There was wifi but not free, it was so slow I couldn't download the entertainment app, so I gave up and slept. No access to Delta lounge with domestic first class WTF?"

Cons: "The boarding. Having to wait for people to place their carry ons."
Cons: "Only food available was pretzels. Not even peanuts or cookies."
Cons: "I booked with Delta who doesnt give you limits of weight for the carryon...why since the flight was operated from Airfrance they gave me limits of weight of 12 kg??? one ticket one law pls again, the hostess in my row was very nice, even the steward who was working with her very snob...it's not his job"
Pros: "The hotel I had to stay I. Because of a delayed flight was nice"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, delay, no show on the crew so cancelled, delay, delay, delay only to arrive in a different city from my original place of arrival just to go home."
