The boarding staff were professional. I could not board because I was not aware or informed of Covid restrictions in Japan (passing through) . Fortunately the counter staff declined my boarding so I was not stuck in ORD or rejected in Japan. I will gain the required testing and reschedule the trip next week.
My seat in business classes was so small. I felt so cramped and uncomfortable. The configuration of the seats are too closed for comfort. Feeling so exposed and no privacy. The blanket was so thin but fortunately, the temperature in the cabin was quite warm. The crew was excellent. I was looking to fly with JAL but left a little to be desired to fly with JAL again
My flight was from Dallas-Atlanta.
Once again, great crew….. Fast, efficient, and helpful
Short flight with minimal services. I have no complaints. The staff were very, very good.
Same thing about the seats. Why can I select seats and then those choices not be honored?
Again, lots of space, bug seats, plenty of legroom -served me dinner after I slept through the meal service.
Pros: "The crew was definitely amazing. Extremely polite and always have a smile on :-)"
Pros: "Crew took great care of us"
Cons: "The cabin was so hot it felt like there was no air conditioning. Please turn up the air conditioning (make it colder). Passengers feeling cold can use a blanket to stay warm. Passengers feeling warm have no solution. I was wearing just a T-shirt and was feeling so warm. Thank you"
Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
Cons: "Not one thing."
Pros: "33" seats"
Pros: "The crew always smiles and very accomodating."
Cons: "The main course could have been better or improve. I wasn’t satisfied with the taste."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The chairs were just a little uncomfortable, too firm, but everything else made up for it."
Pros: "I really got a good deal on my trip's cost, and for the price, all the comforts of a top-quality airline were there. I especially appreciate how helpful and friendly the airline staff were."
Cons: "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."
Cons: "Kiosk, bag service, One World Integration"
Pros: "Two choices of meal, friendlier staff, better head cushion. Props to JAL."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."
Pros: "Service was excellent and seats were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful! A smiling face makes a huge difference! The airline was excellent with our luggage, transfers and boarding. Easy to fly!"
Cons: "No entertainment. Still a long flight for kids."
Cons: "seat was uncomfortable (cushion very hard)"
Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints"
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"
Pros: "Super cheap. Came with an in flight meal. Kind staff. Great service."
Pros: "No wait at JAL business class checkin.....security and immigration were slow, didn't see a separate line for business class if it existed. Access to Korean lounge, was fairly standard. Crew very friendly once on board. Plenty of good food and drink for a relatively short flight."
Cons: "IFE in armrests,not in back of seat in front. Limited liquor options onboard (just chivas)."
Pros: "Service is outstanding. Attentive but not invasive and always with a genuine smile. Will fly JAL every time it’s an option"
Pros: "Superb services!"
Cons: "I don't think there's anything I didn't like during my journey"
Pros: "Not many passengers so that I had empty seats and could lay down."
Cons: "Tv stopped working suddenly."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and long waits for restroom"
Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."
Pros: "Excellent flight and wonderful service!"
Pros: "Business class seat was good."
Cons: "Temperature was kept too hot to sleep comfortably. Service a little slow. It took almost 3 hours to finish the first meal."
Pros: "Loved everything including entertainment selection and all the snacks left out as self-serve throughout the flight. Left and arrived on time from JFK to Narita"
Cons: "I'm picky about food and preferred the food to Tokyo on ANA to JAL. However, I take some responsibility for not making a special request pre-flight. I will do so for trip home."
Pros: "Sakura lounge was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment system was bit unsteady."
Cons: "Great airline great service. Haihly recommended"
Pros: "Great service! Also, the food and beer that came with my flight was awesome."
Pros: "The majority of the crew had facials that made me feel like I shouldn't talk to them. The food wasn't the best but that was expected. There was movies and shows that kept me entertained for a while. Seats are normal couldn't walk or get up often because of turbulence."
Pros: "Food, lavatory experience"
Cons: "Small carry and carry on bag"
Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."
Pros: "Great service and comfort. Great food. On time."
Cons: "Outgoing plane was older and had stains on the chairs, walls, etc. But still comfortable."
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of room, lots of movies"
Pros: "Service from cabin attendants was excellent, specially the crew announcing up coming turbulence, foods, landing. Price is good as well."
Cons: "No big deal, I don't care some of the food, smells fishy. Like I said no big deal, still using Japan Airlines."
Pros: "The seat have enough legs room,I'm 181cm usually feel uncomfortable when I take airplane to somewhere, however Japan Airline offer really good service and comfortable seat."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant professional and caring."
Cons: "Seat bottoms could be more comfortable."
