Breakfast food has no choice and served seafood rice is really despairing.
Highly efficient and great service
You did a great job JAPAN AIRLINES. Looking forward to experience again your utmost service in air!
Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Good crews."
Cons: "Space seats."
Pros: "JAL flight crew were excellent and friendly"
Pros: "Soo Much Food! Crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "They didn’t offer a vegetarian meal option in flight, but there was enough sides that it didn’t really matter."
Pros: "Friendly, clean. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to reserve a seat - apparently they don't allow Kayak customers to reserve seats now. I was forced into a middle seat and was uncomfortable and dehydrated the majority of the trip. Nice girl at baggage check said she'd ask a manager to move me, and to let them know at the gate, but the people at the gate said no. I felt discriminated against because I didn't book through them and/or I'm not Japanese. They historically love to put mushrooms in their food, like a fetish. This left me with one choice for the entree - some version of oyakodon - eggs and chicken. In my box there were two enormous chunks of fat/skin and another unidentifiable part of the chicken, and about the amount of edible chicken as 1 1/2 nuggets from Chick-Fil-A. There was more lotus root than chicken, so basically I had a box of rice and scrambled eggs with garnish. For the second meal, it was the Yoshinoya gyudon - a small serving of thinly sliced beef with rice. If I bought this fresh at a Yoshinoya restaurant, it would cost about $3. It's the rough equivalent of serving you a McDouble - cheap and filling and a coin toss if you get stomach pains. I lost that coin toss. Unless there is a big fare difference or I find out that their reserved seat policies are changed, I will choose ANA or another carrier. I used to enjoy JAL, but I cannot abide by idiotic decisions that seemed designed to punish people for using 3rd-party booking sites or who are not Japanese."
Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints"
Pros: "Good space between seats. Cleanest of the restroom. Nice crew service"
Pros: "The drink which call Kiwi which taste was so nice."
Cons: "Meal was served frozen."
Pros: "Super cheap roundtrip flight. Reliable airline. Flight even came with a meal both ways. Kind staff. Good service."
Pros: "Nicest crew I have ever seen!"
Pros: "Best customer service"
Pros: "All their employees were very polite and it definitely stood out."
Cons: "Coffee just didn’t taste good to me. But they had wine, so not a big deal!"
Pros: "Not many passengers so that I had empty seats and could lay down."
Cons: "Tv stopped working suddenly."
Pros: "Service was amazing. Flight attendants were very..attentive!"
Pros: "They were good at helping with problems being it was my first time on a plane."
Cons: "The food was ok but not very good for as the meals go but they did fill me up with drinks lol"
Cons: "Airplan so old and ac not work super hot."
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: "The service Japan Airlines gives is always the best service possible.They treat you like they need you and not the other way around.I will fly with them again."
Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."
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: "It was anything very good, my trips on air are great. all flight attendant did good job.i got good slept well on flight JL 060.so I will choice Japan Airline next time. Thank you very much"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."
Pros: "Food served was actually pretty good."
Cons: "Movie selection, should've had more recent releases instead of flicks from the 90's. Makes for a long flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."
Pros: "I like everything about my flight"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike"
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "that it was actually flown by JAL not china southern"
Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."
Pros: "Food was really good!!! It was way"
Pros: "The crew on JAL is excellent. They get pleasure out of providing service to the passenger -- I was in business class."
Cons: "Business class seat on 787 is awful. Does not get to flat bed level. Really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food and beverages service .very pleasant attendants..economy tough on 11 hr flight..fee seemed reasonable though. .ovreally nice experience"
Cons: "11 hr flight"
Cons: "too little legroom seating is designed shorter legged Japanese"
Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Boarding process; comfortable legroom on the Boeing 787; 1st meal was also excellent"
Cons: "2nd meal, some sort of a rice seafood mixture"
Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."
Cons: "Flight from Taipei to Tokyo was delayed and ultimately cancelled because of "mechanical failure". Many passengers on the flight including us had international connections through Tokyo, with only an hour between flights. It was clear we were all going to miss this connection, but in a frantic and haphazard way, the JAL crew's only solution at the gate was just to get us all on the next flight out to Tokyo (I believe via China Air) no matter what our individual final destinations were. They said "from Narita, they will handle all your connections to your final destination." This was a bizarre solution. Why not reroute us individually on other partner airlines, through other countries/cities, from this international airport in Taipei, like airlines usually do? (Also, all of this disorganized communication by the JAL crew at the gate was never translated into English, I just happen to speak a little mandarin and was able to understand what they were directing us to do). My wife was the one who searched for an alternative route on her phone (through HK instead of Tokyo) via their partner airline Cathay pacific and showed it to the JAL rep at the transfer counter, and through a series of radio and phone calls, only then did they say "there might be seats left", but they couldn't book the seats for us there. In order to make the flight, we had to sprint ourselves to a completely different terminal and concourse to another transfer counter to finally book our seats on this Cathay flight. Needless to say, our luggage did not get pulled from JAL in time to make it on the Cathay flights, so we are waiting 2-3 days for them to hopefully be found and sent to us. Overall, I was completely disappointed by the JAL staff, who didn't take responsibility or ownership of the situation, and who's solution to just fly everyone out to Tokyo, no matter our final destination, and to leave us to figure out our connections there was extremely short-sighted and irresponsible, and was a total disservice to their customers. I expect much more from this airline. On another note, we flew JAL from Boston to Tokyo, and Tokyo to Taipei: the food was terrible and food options were really subpar for an international flight, I would've expected much better from JAL and the dreamliner flight."
Pros: "Excellent service--excellent food (ice cream included in coach)."
Cons: "Loved everything."
Pros: "Food was good, entertainment was plentiful. One of the best flights I've ever been on."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I needed to borrow a pen and the flight staff hardly had any."
Pros: "I was treated like an important customer. Many airlines do not do this."
Pros: "Everything on the 787 except the seats in Biz Class"
Cons: "Biz class seats on this 787 recline to almost flat, but not flat & the remaining tilt is enough to make you slip toward your feet, so it's less comfortable than 777 biz class seats"
Pros: "I liked that they served food through the the flight and they provided movies and other entertainment options free of charge."
Cons: "The tight spaces in economy were still slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Jal shut off online check-in for non-Japanese so you can't choose a seat assignment. You can't do it over the phone either. This disservice was my main complaint about the flight. Plane was uncomfortably hot for the first 4 hours. Rest of the flight was fine."
Three hour delay on a 1.2 hour flight. Ground staff made us wait in the boarding area for around 2 hours even though the aircraft hadn't even arrived yet. No updates, no refreshments - not even water. Then we finally boarded to discover MH wasn't even doing meal service on this sector anymore. Just a bag of peanuts and tiny cup of orange juice. So close to five hours without serving water!
Business with Malaysia was an absolute pleasure.
Cons: "Business class boarding could have been more organized. Was sent to the gate too early from lounge"
Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"
Cons: "There were no vegan options available. I think that was my fault though because I did not set one up in advance. Would be nice if they offered one anyhow."
Cons: "Flight through kul was delayed. 3 security checks having to go out to another terminal meant immigration check twice. Not enough time for connection. Therfore, i not only missed the fight to India, the two remaining connections... Not good day, now I have to pay rebooking on 3 flights to get home!!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly, and the food selection is limited"
Pros: "Malayasia airlines made me sad since they left my luggage in KL on my trip to Shanghai today. The agent in Shanghai was really bad to handle situation. He doesnt care at all. No one from Malaysia Airlines showed off to explain the situation. Me and my wife dont have any clothes to change. Very bad"
Cons: "Malaysia airlines need to Change the behavior of the staffs in shanghai especially the agent or the station manager of MAS"
Pros: "The seat was very nice position."
Cons: "Custom check line 200 meters long, security check line another 120 meter long, why not combine them together and open two machine in parallel"
Cons: "Flight delay announcement could have been made much earlier"
Pros: "Crew is ok, accommodating, entertainment system ok, food ok."
Cons: "level up on the service, I think MH needs to take a second look at the whole company in terms of culture and level of service."
Cons: "The KUL to DPS leg was on one of the oldest planes I’ve flown. A 737 with no seat back screens. They handed out 2 inch thick “tablets” in Business class, with no touch screen and only a handful of 10 year old movies."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth ride, easy boarding"
Cons: "The air con totally not cold!"
Pros: "easy securityand boarding at kl"
Cons: "food bland"
Pros: "New plane and spacious."
Cons: "No choice in meal for breakfast. Only one type available. Ran out of red wine. White wine wasn’t chilled. Poor service, no water was offered on a long flight. Have to ask it."
Cons: "Food Seats cramped"
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "Seat allocation was not proper for maximum comfort as flight wasn’t full"
Pros: "The crew were nice and good entertainment"
Cons: "Got delayed in kuala lumpa for nearly 5 hours with Not many updates fir us to know what’s happening then they left my luggage there and still don’t have it 15 hours later"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. . The food bland but warm. But the seats were microscopic"
Cons: "Seats were tiny. My knees pressed to seat in front of me. I’m 73 inches tall"
Pros: "The cabin crew."
Cons: "Again, incorrect information of boarding gate."
Cons: "Prebooking a seat with Malaysian Airlines requires calling KL office which is always busy. It costs a lot if calling from the US, in addition to paying for the seats. It really turned me off."
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "food was horrible"
Pros: "On time. Good food Good flight attendant service"
Pros: "The flights were on time :)."
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "Acceptable in general. Food (ran out of option, only fish curry left in row 20's), enterteinment, comfort (empty seats)."
Cons: "Attitude by attendants can be improved."
Pros: "Second flight was quite empty and the plane was in much better shape"
Cons: "My checked bag did not arrive at my work city of Singapore. It took 2 days to be brought to my hotel despite my being told they would be on the next flight. I arrived back in Denpasar yesterday and, again, my bags are lost and I again I was told they would be on the next flight. I still do not have my bag. Seems to be a pattern with Malaysian Airways and I will avoid them in the future, Also, I left my Ipad plugged in at the Premier Lounge in Denpasar and realized it as I was boarding the plane. The Malaysian Air boarding staff got on radios and appeared to try to help by telling them to put aside for pick up upon my return. Yesterday, The Premiere lounge said they did not have it despite my name, email and phone number being written on the Ipad. Between Malaysian Air and the Lounge and their lack of concern and professionalism it was not a good trip. As One World Emerald member, I steer a lot of business towards these One World Airlines. I expect better treatment."
Pros: "Liked the USB port for recharging electronic devices"
Cons: "Seats were too close together. Not very comfortable. We were in row in front of emergency exit. Seats didn't recline. We should be alerted when we select these seats that they are uncomfortable."
Cons: "Canceled flights both directions. Poor airport. Long runway times. When told I was notified about the canceled flights, I was issued absolutely no apologies."
Pros: "Everything flowed smoothly."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have inflight entertainment within our seatbacks."
Pros: "We like to thank you for all your staff are good taking for all of us. We would like to make recommends it to all our friends. May the Living Lord and our Almighty God bless you, your staffs and your business abundantly! Amen!"

Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"
Cons: "Transfer from domestic to international terminal in KL was slow as only 1 customs officer was working"
Pros: "Free beer and wine. For breakfast the egg dish wasn't bad. Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable after a few hours, not good for long flights. Seats have very little leg room so for someone over 6 foot tall it will not be comfortable."
Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"
Cons: "Lost baggage took 24 hours to arrive. Rude staff."
Pros: "Yeah it's fine journey and we love to travel in Malaysia airlines And last but not least it's nice journey"
Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff"
Cons: "Two hour in late and still waiting for boarding. Awful experience..."
Cons: "Two people on the same PNR, but seated six rows apart. Say what?"
Pros: "spacious seat at row 5"
Cons: "The fish is merely edible. No IFE available."
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Pros: "- On Time - Nice to include buns or bread for breakfast - Staffs should be more gracious and engaging."
Cons: "- Landing was rough and sudden - Hot drinks only served at the end of meal. It should be served together with meal. - Row 17 was last to be served. Rather hungry especially on transit flight from Singapore - No transit lounge and refreshments"
Cons: "Had a transit flight through KL from Colombo to Bali. The luggage was not with me and my friend along with about 7-10 others post arrival in Bali. We received the luggage after losing almost one day eating into our holiday. Minor compensation was given but the inconvenience was far more! This is not the KL to colombo flight but thought i will write it in here as I got this through Kayak"
