There was a miscommunication between Kayak and Chatdeal. My flight wasn't Haneda-Chicago. There was a cancellation on my Haneda-Chicago flight two days before departure (Atlanta-Haneda) and switched to Narita-Chicago but the Narita-Chicago flight wasn't fully booked even though I got a new itinerary. Luckily, I noticed a week in advance but it might have been a disaster. My husband was on the phone many hours for three days from US while I was in Japan. The flight itself was great but the process was not pleasant at all. Hope my situation was rare and nobody goes thru this. Thank you, Junko Gupta

Pros: "Hands down Jal is the best airline japan has to offer!"
Pros: "We traveled with our 1.5 year old and JAL was incredibly accommodating and made our trip very enjoyable. They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was smooth and provided impeccable service."
Pros: "Good food and movies. Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Tight seating and it was hot. No way to control individual airflflow"
Pros: "This was my first time to travel with JAL. They take excellent care of all of their passengers. The flights did not seem to be as long as they were. I was very comfortable."

Cons: "Selections of movies"
Pros: "Ms Yoshinaga went out of her way to make sure everything was smooth for my experience."

Cons: "Entertainment selection was outdated. Very dated. The food selection was limited. The cabin was noisy"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."
Pros: "Flight was half full so was able to take aisle seat."
Cons: "Fight attendant service was poor. Even getting water for meal, the attendant 'forgets' to bring it."

Cons: "Food was okay. Not a great choice of movies."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Excellent flight and wonderful service!"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."
Pros: "Great staff and washlet toilets on board."
Cons: "I ended boarding last not one of the first as other airlines."
Pros: "Last minute accommodation for Muslim meal was awesome!"
Cons: "Transit in NRT was too short! Didn't give me time to buy souvenirs.."

Cons: "Only a small bread í offered for breakfast for a 7 night flight. Expectation is to have a standard flight breakfast."
Pros: "Amazing customer service, flight attendants could not be more welcoming."
Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Crew helpful and willing to please."
Cons: "The food and overall service amenities are lacking in JAL. My flight was 8 hours and only one meal was served and one snack. The meals themselves are nothing special or enjoyable."
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "I've been always flying with U.S. airlines this past several years just because transits are easier. I forgot about how friendly and nicer JAL crews are. Their food is much much better. They served us with a cup of Haagen-Dazs icecream for dessert while a Fatboy is normally served by other airlines. I was impressed by how spacious the foot area of their economy seat is. Because I felt quite comfortable, I slept five hours straight during the flight which is phenomenal to me. I will definitely fly with JAL again!"
Pros: "Japan airport is big and too much shopping needs to be done, and liked the fact that boarding started just 15 minutes before departure which gave me ample amount of time."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't the greatest. The mid-flight meal was a burger instead of the beloved ramen."
Pros: "Customer service was awesome and the food was good"
Pros: "It seemed more spacious. Food was pretty good."
Pros: "Great 12hr flight"

Cons: "Nothing actually"
