Pros: "33" seats"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The seat was very spacious"
Cons: "More space to put things"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."
Cons: "At check-in counter in MNL, the JAL agent mistakenly told me that I don't need to claim my bag and re-check at DFW before heading to final destination MEM. Food wasn't as good as previous JAL flights earlier this year and last year. That said, it's still better than other airlines."

Pros: "The crew that checked me and those who were onboard were very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Better choices of movies on board."

Cons: "Movie selection"

Pros: "JAL flight crew were excellent and friendly"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Felt welcomed"
Cons: "Just felt a little cramped but not to bad"

Pros: "The flight attendant and staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Japan airport is updated with excellent facility and flight transferring was easy."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), and entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large). I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."

Pros: "The flight from Chicago to Tokyo was delayed, which made me worried that I would miss the connection to Taipei. I was very happy to discover that an airline staff person was waiting for me when I got off the plane, having already changed me to another Taipei flight. She explained things and guided me to the right place. She was able to walk amazingly fast for a woman wearing high heels!"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to lightning strike on arriving flight, we were transferred to non stop EVA Airline so we can get home and not need a connecting flight in Japan. JAL did all these arrangements without us requesting it. They also were very polite and got our luggage in time to be on the flight with us. JAL is truly a top airline in the world."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Longer leg room and clean ambience coupled with very friendly flight attendent makes this trip a wonderful experience"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Space between the seats."
Cons: "Color of the seats."

Pros: "FA service with a smile. All pleasant and nice to deal with. Windows are button controlled."
Cons: "Economy meal is not that great. Boarding should be by zone or by seat number."

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "I got an upgrade!"

Pros: "I loved the food and presentation. The service was excellent, very attentive stewardess."
Cons: "There was the boarding from Tokyo to New York, where the selected gate did not have a comfort room. You have to back upstairs walk for quite a distance to use the toilet. Inconvenient and time consuming lugging your things with you."

Cons: "Delayed flight that cost most passangers their next flights, incredibly stressful. Upon arriving to Chicago there was a problem lining up the exit ramp to the boarding craft and it took a very long time to correct the situation."

Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment and the crews attention made me fell welcomed."

Pros: "Service is great."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Boarded late. Took off late. Delayed 10 minutes at arrival gate with seat belt sign on."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours!! No info was given why until we got on the plane. We did not know if the flight was going to get cancelled and if we need to make other arrangements."

Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "We didn’t dislike anything except the comfort of the seats, but of course that is expected for the Economy Class."

Pros: "Fantastic service, excellent food, state-of-the-art entertainment, always on-time and professional."
Cons: "Older plane had extremely uncomfortable seats for the lengthy flight (over 7 hours). Shorter flights of 3 hours or less would have been fine."

Pros: "Not many passengers so that I had empty seats and could lay down."
Cons: "Tv stopped working suddenly."

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Met a very nice Taiwanese sitting next to me. We spoke the entire trip."

Pros: "Once again the service from the flight attendants was perfect."

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: "Always on time"
Cons: "No clue when it's boarding time and no announcement"

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: "Flight crew are very courteous and helpful. Comfortable seats and better leg room space in the economy section."
Cons: "We were delayed and stayed in the plane for 3 hours and flight was almost cancelled. Could not really understand why there was a delay or why it would have been cancelled."

Pros: "Clean and very good service."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "The food (Japanese) clearly was a league of its own. Service was prompt, attentive yet discreet."
Cons: "Selection of video entertainment could be increased and improved."

Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."

Pros: "JAL ' service is nice."
Cons: "I didn't like MSG in food."

Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant professional and caring."
Cons: "Seat bottoms could be more comfortable."

Cons: "All passengers were onboard but the captain said that we need to go out and change to another airplane at different gate too (note: the changes made after passengers on board)"

Pros: "Since I had back pain,I really like that I could checked in two luggages. Thank you so much!!"

Pros: "fine food, the pilot handled a typhoon like a pro"

Pros: "This was the first leg of 3 flights back to the US and it was great!"
Cons: "There was nothing bad about this flight."

Pros: "Professional and kind service. Leg room. In-service TV/movies. Toothbrushes. Food. Everything was outstanding."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."

Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Leaving a comfortabke setting"

Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly staff."

Pros: "great flight crew and clean airplane. Pilots did excellent job and it was comfortable seats, pillow and blanket."
Cons: "Food was bad compared to other flights to Tokyo that I have taken and entertainment was very weak."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."

Pros: "I had to run to the gate and was really thirsty on the plane. I asked for a bottle of water or something, and the flight attendant that said "we don't have bottled water. Sit down and your drink will be with you shortly.""
Cons: "Be more responsive to customers. By being responsive you can help the flight become more enjoyable."

Pros: "nothing in particular"
Cons: "cold, inattentive crew, United premium economy product is not worth a pretty penny it charges"

Pros: "good movies to choose from"
Cons: "slimline seats on a 12+ hour international flight are torture"

Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"

Cons: "Absolutely everything"

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "There was no WiFi or TVs"

Cons: "Baggage took a long time to come out. Meanwhile they had the buzzer going non-stop to announce the bags for the entire time from when we got there until they started the belt. It’s around -10 degrees outside so the guys getting our bags are saints and the delay is to be expected, but the buzzer..."

Pros: "Great gate staff at each leg. Fantastic crew DEN to IAH"
Cons: "Nothing really. The layovers allowed me time to work on schoolwork and to enjoy lounges."

Pros: "Spa first class but seats are pretty comfortable. Wi-Fi works well ."
Cons: "Parked at gate getting in without gate availability. I hate those delays ."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight 4 times. Very unprofessional"

Pros: "The variety of TV shows."
Cons: "The flight attendants just didn't seem to care The food was so salty. The air conditioning made me cold and sick."

Pros: "This was one of the worst domestic flights I’ve ever taken. United Airlines had a maintenance problem I’m delayed this plane by one hour every hour for six hours keeping us captive at the airport !! Horrible service horrible Airline I will try to avoid this at all costS."

Pros: "fast take off and good service."

Pros: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight was to short."

Cons: "Rude flight attendant. White, old, male, with half shaved head. Uncomfortable seats. Awful food"

Cons: "2 suitcases out of 6 came broken, the airline did not accept any claim because they say the type of damage is not covered!!!"

Pros: "Loved the fast boarding and quick flight! The crew did their best to inform us about our various delays."
Cons: "Cmon dudes, just plan ahead. Don't leave us to taxi on the tarmac for an hour before take off, only to do the same once we land! This shouldn't take quite so long."

Pros: "Left ontime and arrived early."
Cons: "Baggage came off belt wet and no onboard entertainment."

Cons: "Significant delay"

Pros: "SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD AND FRIENDLY STAFF"

Cons: "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"

Pros: "Overall it was ok. Spot on landing by the pilots every time. Good crew."
Cons: "No free entertainment. The plane was not equipped either."

Cons: "The Audio Visual was inoperative!!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great. They brought the food and drink cats down the aisle at least 5 times each during the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system worked great for the first hour or so and then would spool for several minutes for every minute of movie that it would play. Flight attendants could not so anything to fix it."

Pros: "Short flight.... no food or ENT. But quick easy and pretty on time. Thx."

Pros: "Gate staff was nice."
Cons: "Difficult to understand steward on flight"

Pros: "Movies on personal device"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Waited for clearance to take off for about 10-15 minutes on the tarmac."

Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"

Cons: "This flight was my third delayed United flight in under 3 days. I will not be flying with United again. Absolutely unacceptable."

Pros: "The first plane that had the screens and the crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Security was great! No hassle and quick. Boarding was on time and fast."
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. The snack packs of pretzels and things is not very good, it doesn't taste the best and is not healthy for anyone. Had to gate check my one item. Very cold in the cabin even after two hours in flight."

Cons: "THe sits where very uncomfortable."

Cons: "Entertainment could have been better."

Cons: "Our flight changed times both ways and we were never notified.. We only found out when we checked in. We also had to sit in the last row that doesn't recline both ways"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I'm still at the airport !!!"

Cons: "The flight from Newark was delayed and caused me to miss my flight from SFO to TPE. The gate staff on arrival did nothing to help ensure that I would make the flight. I chose United because i expected reliable service, instead I got the worst ever experience with an airline."

Pros: "Awesome Staff, planes on time, Food was good, staff collected trash separately to recycle"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They knew my connecting flight was delayed why did they did not give any allowance of 10 minutes"

Pros: "The patient staff kept the Newark to Boston crowd sane as the 47 minute flight turned into 5 1/2 hour saga."
Cons: "Weather and forgetfulness turned our hopper flight into a 5.5 hour saga. Even though weather was the main cause for the initial delay, the plane then had to be refueled while the passengers sat on the plane, the passenger Act was used not one (but almost twice) and then air traffic control wouldn't organize the retake- off in a timely manner."

Pros: "The crew on this flight was absolutely amazing. They were helpful, they were very kind, and very pleasant. Probably the best flight crew I've ever had. Despite originally being annoyed that I wasn't allowed to pick/change my seat, I somehow miraculously got an economy plus seat so I had what felt like a first-class amount of space."
Cons: "Again, the flight was delayed. Despite originally being told that we were trying to get out ahead of storms so we wanted to get going quickly, we ended up boarding and then sitting there for probably an hour and a half. The pilot/copilot were great at letting us know what was going on, but the fact that both the first and second leg of my journey were delayed was excrutiately annoying. Having already been traveling for over 8 hours, the last thing I wanted to do was be even later and extend the flight even longer, obviously. The entertainment also was not available due to some problem in the circuit for the entirety of sitting there waiting to taking off and the first 15 minutes of the trip. Again, the attendants did everything they could and were very attentive, it was just frustrating to not really be sure that entertainment was going to be available for the 9 hour flight you just sat down for. Thereafter the entertainment was great. The food was, again, pretty mediocre compared to other transatlantic flights I've taken. The lasagna was not very good tasting at all. The sandwich they brought near the end of the flight was tasty though. Another plus was full sized cans of juice as opposed to a tiny glass. Honestly once this flight got off the ground it was good. However the combination of the delays, plus my terrible previous flight (which was the one directly operated by Lufthansa, the second flight was farmed out to United) just made the whole journey pretty awful, and probably the worst of my life. On my flight from Munich to Cairo, three weeks ago, Lufthansa left my bag in Munich despite the fact that I had an 8 hour layover - which you'd think would be more than enough to put a bag on a plane. They were very quick about delivering my bag once it arrived, but that previous experience with Lufthansa just served to bring down my opinion of the entire airline. Honesty, I had been told by friends that Lufthansa was a pretty good airline, that didn't show at all. There's a pretty big chance I'll never willingly fly Lufthansa again if there's even a remotely comparable option (which there almost always is)."

Pros: "I did like that I had an open seat next to me. But not really much else"
Cons: "It was the only flight without entertainment. And it was the longest flight so I was completely bored. They didn't offer snacks and by the time the stewardess got to my row the for sale snack j was interested in was sold out."

Cons: "They gave me the last seat in the airplane"

Pros: "Timeliness and orderliness"

Pros: "You can carry up to 16kg in your carry on. That's great."
Cons: "Food was below average and only twice during a 14 hours flight. Plus, no free snack available... you have to pay. I will think twice about travelling with United for an international flight."

Pros: "Movies were ok."
Cons: "Openly rude, almost argumentative staff. I was afraid to talk back because the last thing I want is any accusation of bad behavior on an airplane. But if this were a restaurant, the customers would get up and leave without eating. I've never had this experience on China Airlines or Japan Air. I will never use UA again."

Pros: "The crew spoke Mandarin and were very friendly. The food has definitely improved since the last time I flew this segment. I think UA is feeling the competition from the Asian airlines and improving their services to better compete. The seats are definitely more comfortable than the domestic flights. It was a comfortable flight and we landed right on time."
Cons: "The seats are still smaller than some of the Asian competition."

Pros: "I liked that United got me a flight on Delta. A delay on my United flight would have taken off after my connecting flight took off from Chicago to Hartford."
Cons: "I did not get a text message or a phone call that my flight had a long delay."

Pros: "The Eva flight was lovely. Nice plane, wonderful crew, very good food, absolutely on time."
