Cons: Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen.Read more about Japan Airlines
Cons: Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen.
Cons: More movie choices. More substantial second meal.
Pros: 33" seats
Pros: The seat was very spacious
Cons: More space to put things
Pros: The crew and food both are amazing.
Cons: PA announcements could have been louder. I also had difficulty understanding when I could hear the English words.
Pros: Two choices of meal, friendlier staff, better head cushion. Props to JAL.
Pros: I loved the Haagen daz ice cream. Loved that they have USB ports.
Cons: Portions of food is small. Entertainment selection could be better organized; ie comedy tv shows, drama tv shows, Japanese tv shows.
Pros: Food was great
Cons: It’s 14h flight. I wanted more water. I had to keep asking but the size was too small... I didn’t want orange or apple juice....
Pros: Kind people, quality service. Very helpful. On time.
Cons: Had trouble hearing instructions from flight crew since volume of the speakers was low.
Pros: I was fed two meals and snacks/drinks in between for a 14 hour flight. Love the little TV in front of the seat and the blanket and pillow. Crew was very sweet. Overall positive and good first international flight. Would choose Japan Airlines again! <3
Cons: Only a little hard to sleep upright in economy class seat. I wasn't able to fall fully asleep.
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: Longer leg room and clean ambience coupled with very friendly flight attendent makes this trip a wonderful experience
Pros: Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin.
Pros: Space between the seats.
Cons: Color of the seats.
Pros: Polite friendly and attentive Staff. From checking in to inflight.
Pros: JAL is great!
Cons: Cold food
Cons: You mean the flight that never happened? The one that was suppose to fly out at 12:50 on 1/6/18 delayed until 17:25 (with acceptable communication the first delay) but then later delayed till 00:10 after I’ve already arrived at the airport early for the 17:25 departure. The screens with arrivals and departures posted that Checkin was open but there was no JAL staff to answer questions. Then getting an update “maybe” the 00:10 flight is cancelled? What is maybe cancelled and JALs phone messege still said the flight would depart at 00:10. So I go back to JFK because after all “maybe” isnt a definitive and according to all the direct JAL sources the flight is suppose to depart, I get to JFK the second time only to be given a printout saying the flight is cancelled with no rebooking, and to call for assistance. The same number is been calling for hours trying to get answers. coukdnt reschedules because I’m calling outside of business hours! I spent $200 on cab rides going back and forth to JFK to go nowhere, get no apology, no new flight booking, and no reimbursement for transportation.
Pros: The staff were awesome. The facilities were good.
Pros: Nice staff.
Cons: Economy seats very uncomfortable especially for long distance flights - barely reclining. Seat selection very painful - can do it online, have to call up to 48h before glight with roaming fees if already abroad. Food okay - nothing Japanese. Movie selection could be richer and better.
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: The service was great. Food was delicious,
Cons: It was a bit too warm in the aircraft.
Pros: Met a very nice Taiwanese sitting next to me. We spoke the entire trip.
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: Clean and nice staff
Cons: Seats separated from my friend for 14hrs.
Pros: Awesome experience, nothing like any other. Will fly again.
Pros: Once again the service from the flight attendants was perfect.
Pros: super comfortable seats, great food, huge monitor, non stop service for the 13 hours plus JFK-hnd new flight

Pros: Always on time
Cons: No clue when it's boarding time and no announcement
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: 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.
Pros: Good in flight entertainment options. Great food and plenty of it. Service was top notch. No complaints.
Pros: Airline crew was super nice and helpful, attentive, and the plane was very clean.
Pros: Sitting in the Economy section, I was lucky to get the two seats next to me empty so i was able to stretch and sleep. Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised.
Cons: Economy Class seats are uncomfortable for long haul. Wish they could do something about it. Some of us dislike rice crackers and peanuts as welcome snacks so a different option could be nice.
Pros: If I needed anything, they were on top of it. The food was very good for airplane food.
Cons: They kept the cabin a little warm, and at 6' 4" the seats are a bit small.
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: Dreamliner 787! Great staff. Efficient. Good food.
Pros: The attention of the flight crew to all passengers. The on time boarding, departure & arrival is top notch.
Pros: Boarding process; comfortable legroom on the Boeing 787; 1st meal was also excellent
Cons: 2nd meal, some sort of a rice seafood mixture
Cons: The movie selection, my electrical outlet didn't work and they took my phone away from me to charge it in economy plus but did not allow me to come with my phone. The food wasn't very good either.
Cons: Late boarding
Pros: Good and polite crew
Cons: Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane
Pros: The service
Cons: Leaving a comfortabke setting
Pros: This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay.
Cons: Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks.
Pros: Clean and service was excellent!
Cons: Nothing special
Cons: Air temperature was super hot and uncomfortable.
Pros: Very friendly and attentive cabin crew. They were all very helpful and came by repeatedly to ask if we need anything throughout the flight.
Cons: Nothing really not to like.
Pros: The services that the representative up to the flight crew provided to the passengers are excellent.
Cons: Smooth flight
Pros: Everything. Very comfortable seat. Great food.
Cons: Better movie selection.
Pros: Crew super nice, appreciated all the free food that was provided during flight and hot towel.

Pros: The crew was lovely as were the littlebthibgs like slippers.
Cons: The lack of ac control and heat of the cabin wzsnt fun.. the kosher meal was aweful...biggesst and worst thing was mo wifi
Pros: Good selection of entertainment
Cons: The food
Pros: Everything. Seat...crew...food...all of it.
Cons: Can't think of anything. All was great.
Cons: Loved it
Pros: Great service
Cons: Hope I can change seat when I check in even though I choose to enter other skyteam number than sky pass.
Pros: They were so courteous, polite, nice, very helpful and accommodating. Always have smiles on their faces and they’re not fake smiles, they’re genuine. They made me feel comfortable even in a small, tight seats.
Cons: Oh boy, the length of travel time. This trip was a spontaneous and a last minute decision. So as you can see, I couldn’t get a cheaper direct flight. End up with a stop over in S. Korea.
Pros: The employees were soooo nice and friendly
Cons: Wheelchair service
Pros: The flight attendants are attentive and know how to anticipate your needs. I used to travel from New York to Korea then the Philippines, and I choose to fly Korean Air. In my opinion, their service crew improved a lot Including their food.
Cons: Boarding Gate at JFK Airport literally has no seats for the passengers! You have to wait in other gates. They should do something about it.
Cons: flew from seattle on delta. i paid for korean air but delta put me on delta going from boston to seoul. very disappointed with the experience going to seoul.
Pros: I was not able to make the flight because the Delta flight from Richmond to New York got cancelled.
Cons: 1st leg of Flight got cancelled.
Pros: Flight was very nice, good service and new aircraft. Korean Air needs to get better selection of movies
Cons: Serve little drinks like water, juices, soft drinks. The plastic cup is small and yet it is half filled. A can every meal would be nice.
Pros: On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again.
Cons: 2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours.
Cons: Nothing but headaches and made me throw out my $100 e cigarette that I checked under the plane half way through my trip from new york to vietnam. And they made me run all over the airport to address the situation only to find out once I arrived that they threw it out without my knowledge or permission
Pros: Great Service, friendly staff, clean planes.
Cons: Larger seats
Pros: Good is in Vietnam finish
Pros: Clean, new plane, with great entertainment systems and choices.
Cons: How in the hell this day in age do you not have Vegan food options on a plane serving Asian countries?! How dose none of the flight crew not understand the words "No Meat"?
Pros: Crew attended to my needs seriously and in a timely fashion.
Pros: Airline provided rooms and a good breakfast before our rescheduled flight. Had personal service by KAL personnel in re-routing our luggage. KAL personnel always told us the truth about our situation.
Cons: Flight was cancelled and rescheduled through Taipei with another airline 12 hours later.
Pros: Great smooth flight!
Cons: Crew's English skills could be better. No wifi or other connectivity options on a 13 hr flight.
Pros: The service & cleanliness.
Cons: The seats.
Pros: Very reliable, quick boarding
Pros: Friendly staff, good food, comfortable length seats. Deplanijng and boarding was fast.
Pros: They have a enough space even economy’s seat.
Pros: acomodations was awesome!!!
Cons: temperature was not consitent
Pros: The flight attendant uniforms
Cons: The guy sitting next to me whose elbow and kneee extended 4 inches into my seat area.
Pros: Clean airplane and ver polite crew.
Cons: Was not allowed to get a seat assigned online. Only at airport checking when most decent seats were taken. Also could not choose the food online. Online site poor. Wasted a lot of time and still could not get seat and food preference.
Pros: I thought the food was far bette than other airlines. The flight attendances were very helpful and kind. I love the little package i get on the seat. Toothbrush and tooth paste, a pair of slippers, blanket and pillow. Headsets are distributed later. The plane was warm for me so I used the blanket for back support instead.
Pros: Cordial; patient; understanding; calm; respectful; and helpful
Pros: I was recently on flight CI054 from Auckland to Taipei, with a short layover in Brisbane (my final destination was Incheon, South Korea. Due to fog in Brisbane, the flight was diverted to Gold Coast. After arriving in Gold Coast we had to take a bus to Brisbane. It's kind of a long story, but basically I will say it was handled well for the most part my China airlines. Certainly, fog was not there fault and they did everything they could to accommodate passengers, including putting us up in two very nice hotels.
Cons: The one complaint I have is when disembarking the plane in Gold Coast, there was no China Airlines personnel to be found anywhere. Nobody on the plane knew what we were doing - who was supposed to get on the bus and who was supposed to stay. The Australian immigration authorities and Gold Coast airport staff took control, but again, China Airlines staff had completely disappeared. Nobody was there to tell us whether we should collect our luggage, how to get an appropriate visa to enter Australia, where to go to get on the bus (or even if we SHOULD get on the bus). I was really frustrated at the point, but other than that, I would say they handled it quite well
Pros: Once we got underway, the trip was average.
Cons: We had a 3 hour delay which is annoying to begin with. They could have boarded us later but they DEFINITELY could have been more polite about it. They announce very rudely that if we didn't like the situation, we should just get off. It's a 12 hour trip. A little courtesy would not hurt.
Pros: Pleasant and helpful
Cons: The food
Pros: The food was good
Cons: I was shocked there wasn't any wifi on board
Pros: Staff very helpful in every way.
Pros: upgrade the food quality
Pros: Enjoyed the flying experience with KE - friendly, attentive crew, econ seats are comfortable with lots of legroom. I was really well taken care of.
Cons: More movies to choose from
Pros: Ground staff very friendly as in flight staff. Boarding orderly and seats comfortable.
Cons: Food was not very tasty
Pros: The entertainment was great ,and the food
Cons: Waiting on long line to use bathroom
Pros: The staff members were really nice and it was an enjoyable flight.
Cons: The food. The noodles were over cooked, but the rest of the meal was good.
Pros: I liked the ample legroom. I liked the food. I liked that the crew periodically offered refreshments. I liked the spacious overhead storage. I liked how far the seats reclined. It doesn't go back as far as first class seats do but better than the economy seats of other airlines/planes. I liked the clean restrooms. I liked the entertainment selection. I especially liked that you can view the external cameras.
Pros: Crew was very helpful and the food was very good, The flight was on time.
Cons: All the advertisement books in the pouch were a pain. I could have put my reading materials in that space. The advertisements could be offered to passengers during the flight. Wouldn't probably need as many. Also, the cup holder should be up higher on the back of the seat. I kept bumping it with my knee and spilling it.
Pros: I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations.
Cons: China Air was alright. Just didn't like the whole running around the airport trying to figure out what counter to go to. Also I am not a big fan of getting transported via bus from terminal to plane
Pros: I like the food,the crew are nice and very helpful
Pros: I requested a special meal which was accommodated and quite tasty. The flight attendants were very nice and always brought water and juice around the aisles. The warm towel was a pleasant surprise.
Cons: Such a full plane with little space. Made the long flight uncomfortable.
Pros: Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining.
Pros: On time. Very professional. Staff works hard. This was the longest flight I’ve ever done; 16.5 hrs and I can’t tell you how great everyone at Cathay Pacific was. They made a difficult flight quite bearable. That’s saying something.
Cons: It was my first time frying with Cathay Pacific the flight was okay, food wasn't that good. I don't want to compare with the other, my opinion should have more variety or snack between meals since 15 hours flight. Thank you for listening!
Pros: The crew was amazing and the food was great too!
Pros: The crew were busy but very attentive
Cons: I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones.
Pros: The food was amazing, and the cabin crews were all very nice people. I would love to use Cathay Pacific in my next trip. Also, I loved that they provide a lot of diverse movies from all over the world, along with good music lists.
Cons: Honestly i think there are not much space for each passenger.
Pros: Food& Beverage :)
Cons: flight always late as usual
Pros: Airport checkin crew sucked, in-flight crew were fantastic!!
Cons: They made me check my carry on for a flight that was MAYBE 50% full... ANd If the ground handlers were actually awake when we landed in Vancouver... took 43 minutes for the first 5 bags to come out.... and another 7 minutes before anymore... WTAF!??
Pros: The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly.
Cons: After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach.
Pros: Really good flight, no complaints here. Friendly and efficient staff.
Pros: I am so blessed for their upgrade to primum economy, that was incredible experience for me and my two sisters. Thanks
Cons: My earphones was broken, a little bed for me. Entertainment without sport news.
Pros: My cabin bag got lost and theres no way to track it. Complete outrageous.
Cons: Everything. Worst experience of my life
Pros: Familarity with airline
Cons: Limited food options. No drinks service.
Pros: Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight.
Cons: The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later.
Pros: It’s tough to make a 15 hour flight in coach very pleasant, but with the seats and entertainment system in the 777, it was really fine. I recently took a 6 hour flight on Wow airlines in a A320 and the seats were terrible and no entertainment. The Cathay flight, though it was more than twice as long on the air, was much more pleasant.
Cons: I wasn’t crazy about the meals on the flight. A choice of chicken or pork was pretty limiting, at least for me. The plane did have a snack area which was open throughout the flight, which was good.
Pros: The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with.
Cons: Would be amazing to have a little more room in the economy seats!
Cons: The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed.
Pros: Service was great and friendly and attentive
Cons: Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between.
Pros: FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED
Cons: Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!
Pros: This flight was 16 hours long was very very cold for about 5 to 6 hours needed jackets extra blankets very uncomfortable for that time frame
Cons: I loved everything except for the freezing temperatures for 5 to 6 hours
Pros: The flight attendants were pleasant and so was the flight.
Cons: The food, I don't eat meat and would like some other options. For such a long flight there should definitely be more leg room and agility to recline
Pros: I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime.
Cons: My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room.
Pros: - Great entertainment lineup -Attentive staff -Delicious meals
Cons: -Lack of aisle space in economy; hard to walk up and down -Seats reclined a bit too far back for the comfort of the person sitting behind...
Pros: Superb crew and excellent service.
Pros: The flight went okay, but my bag didn’t make it and still hasn’t been found.
Pros: Service is good.
Cons: Wash rooms are limited
Pros: First time ever taking a roundtrip across the country with this airline and I am ~TO THE MOON~ excited over my experience. Comfortable seats, excellent food, excellent service, excellent movie choices on board. I can't wait to continually book with this airline on every flight I take across the country!
Pros: The crew are very nice. They maintain the toilet area clean and with paper supplies. I love the availability of having a hot noodle soup in between meals.
Cons: No slippers, toothbrush & toothpaste for economy passengers. Some airlines will give this automatic due to long hours trip.
Pros: Chicken rice
Cons: Mess in TPE
Cons: ... Service was awful during the flight, and the second flight was delay for long time ....
Cons: You have to be there 3hrs before the flight to guarantee they won't resell your seat. I was at the terminal an hour prior at 9am when there was no line to check in or even at security but they turned me away. I rescheduled my flight and had to pay a lot extra to do so. I stayed at the airport to make sure I wouldn't miss it and the crew doesn't even start setting up until an hour prior... they don't start boarding until 30 minutes prior.... so they 100% sold my seat and then charged me to rebook it. They turned me away when I could have been at the gate 50 minutes prior, well before boarding
Pros: The service was very nice and the ice cream with meals was a nice touch
Cons: Plane was a bit dirty - there were big dirt streaks on the ceiling above me, and I saw more on the ceiling on the other side of the plane as well.
Pros: CREW AND PLANE
Pros: Route and travel time. The food taste good.
Cons: Bathrooms need to be cleaned in between flights; meal didn't have any condiments included ; they don't provide a toiletry bag with basics of toothbrush and socks; airplane needs to be CLEANED.. we found dental floss and empty containers inside the seat pocket.
Pros: They marched me and others through Hong Kong airport to just about make our transfer
Cons: But my bag evidently didn't make the transfer and came on the next flight. I'd rather have had the extra hour at Hong Kong airport rather than rush there and be stuck waiting an hour at Singapore.
Cons: We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all
Pros: Helpful crew
Cons: Cramped seating. Very little leg room
Cons: Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks.
Pros: Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese.
Cons: A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely.
Pros: Happy to have goodnight on the flight. Was scared to fly on such a long flight because I'm a decent sized guy. I was even more afraid when I realized I was out in a middle seat. However, the seats are relatively spacious, even in economy and my knees weren't hitting the back of the seat in front of me. I also appreciated that we could get up to grab water or juice at any time during the flight.
Cons: Boarding could be more organized.
Cons: We were scammed by Kayak and Cathay Pacific. We had entered all our information correctly: first, middle, and last name. Cathay Pacific did not print the middle name of the boarding pass. Apparently, Hong Kong is strictly on the passport exactly matching the boarding pass. We were stopped before security and Cathay Pacific decided it was the perfect opportunity to charge us $400 for a rebooking instead of amending the name, which we had entered correctly in the first place. We were pushed back and forth between kayak and cathay when kayak told us they weren't able to change the name on the day of the flight. Will never fly cathay or book from kayak again.
Pros: Nice flight great service
Cons: I like everything
Pros: Service is good.
Cons: Food is too simple.
Pros: The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful.
Cons: Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay
Pros: Landed on time
Cons: Boarded with delay
Pros: The flights overall were great. The crew were very professional and personable from when I checked in to when the plane landed. Definitely will be using Cathay Pacific again
Cons: The food was not very good, whatever bit I ate caused me a bit of a stomach ache. I was able to munch on some snacks. Please have some more fruit options available.
Pros: Service is good
Cons: If 5 pounds is over to figure it out and go thru and next time will doit Wright
Cons: Everything was great, service was awesome! Thanks to everyone!
Pros: The airplane was brand new and the service was very good.
Cons: The ground handling team was very rude and they refused to help me and they acted very aggressive for no reason
Pros: Boarding that’s all.
Cons: Food, crew, entertainment they should upgrade the TV very important it’s very outdated but Istanbul airport is awesome.
Pros: The food was awful. Cold sandwiches all the way. Frozen drinks. No hot drinks at all.
Cons: Change the variety of the food same as other airlines do
Pros: The crew was very helpful even though English is not their first language.
Cons: Maybe the food expections.
Pros: Awesome food. Comfortable seats. Nice crew
Pros: i like the food and movie choices.
Cons: Crew was little bit rude. They didn’t help me to find the spot for my carry on luggage.
Pros: The staff member who checked me in was very friendly
Cons: the inflight staff needs to improve their behaviour in dealing with passengers. Some were quite rude. The aircraft seats were extremely cramped. The food selection was quite poor.
Cons: New aircraft and better management
Cons: The business class seats on Turkish fully recline which is my top criteria. The window seats don't have direct aisle access though. The food was good as always on the flight. The weakest part of their offering is in the entertainment area where the movies are out of date and the TV series haphazard.
Pros: Excellent service. Very tasty food.
Cons: Too many voice announcements, interfering with the entertainments system.
Pros: Food and service in business class were splendid.
Cons: Absolutely nothing!
Pros: Food on flight was good, captain was good pilot
Cons: Flight from NY to Thessaloniki had a medical emergency. Plane was diverted to Manchester Airport in England to help patient on flight. This caused over 3.5 hour late arrival into Istanbul. This caused me to miss onnnection flight. There was very poor information or guidance by staff once we arrived into airport. I had to walk long long distances from the gate without assistance. I had requested wheelchair assistance considering I just had spinal cord surgery and In need of assistance. I was forced to stay over night in Istanbul and waited over 12 hours next day in airport for next available flight to Thessaloniki. I missed my brothers wedding night and could not be his best man for wedding from ordeal which was not fair! I also payed a premium price close to 1000k USA dollars for flight I could of booked many tickets with such a long layover and extra expenses buying a visa and food for half the fare I payed. This was not fair especially when a plane is diverted for medical emergency! To top it all off being a medical doctor I loaned and assisted staff with passenger and offered my consultation. services to emergency medical physician whom was called by crew for help and finally which reccomended to divert flight to Manchester to assist the passenger In crisis! Your welcome Turkish Airlbes Kindly Dr Tamir Kharouba MD
Pros: Fare good. Food good. Staff generally pleasant but will not go the extra step to when needed.
Cons: Repeatedly announce overhead during rest time. Asked for help from crew when one of the kids threw up, but they did help. Otherwise, generally good airline
Pros: The food, comfort and wine on Turkish Airlines was wonderful.
Cons: Turkish Airline’s needs to improve their online experience. Please just pay someone to fix it - you don’t have the city of Los Angeles as a option for home address. In case TA’s web developers are reading this, Los Angeles is the city with LAX in it. I guess you don’t have to know every city, but maybe download a complete list of cities and use that? There are lots of open source options and I can help you, if it gets confusing. Or, alternatively, allow users to type their city with a keyboard. Scrolling through every city in the state of California is not easier than typing Los Angeles. Especially when arriving at Los Gatos and thinking “wait... did I miss it?” That’s not the only thing wrong with your website, but start here. Look Turkish airlines is wonderful, I’m just saying that it was hell actually buying a ticket and signing up for your rewards program.
Pros: We loved everything about our flight, plane was so quiet and service was amazing
Pros: Excellent service from ticket agents, cabin stewards, etc.
Cons: Because we were late, my baggage didn't get transferred. I had to ask around to find out who handles Turkish air baggage issues in Tel Aviv. I found out within a out half an hour what would happen -- you had them delivered to where I was staying the next day. It all went smoothly and fortunately I had allowed extra time after I arrived ... no problems. And the people who handled your baggage claims were professional.
Cons: I missed my connection. Which caused me to lose a critical day of work.
Pros: Cleanliness of lavatories throughout the flight. Friendly staff. Great gluten free food.
Cons: Lack of room between rows and the narrowness of aisles
Pros: Everything went smoothly and comfortably. Enjoyed every moment
Cons: Awful service and no one know what’s going on. Connection flight could have waited 10 minutes to accept one passenger. It was not my fault we are delayed.
Cons: Screaming babies
Pros: All the staff was polit
Cons: We r a family of 5 and we did not seat together this Waht bothers the most of the trip that they couldn't put us together
Pros: Turkish airlines is the only airlines I fly with for many reasons. Their quaility is a lot better than most of the airlines out there. ( I've flown with many) Although it does tend to be a little bit more expensive it's deffinetly worth it in my opinion.
Cons: However, unfortunately I have noticed a decline in their service. The food was not as great as it usually is. I had salmon and it was very dry. With the amount of money given to the flight they could have paid attention to it more. It also happened to be my birthday on the flight and my friend who was flying with me called the airlines to ask if there was anything special that can be done. Happily they said that they did do celebrate birthdays and anniversarys. Sadly though nothing was done. Overall was it horrible I would say no but they are starting to loose quality
Pros: I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected
Cons: First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!
Pros: Ozan was a perfect attendant. Always asked us how we were and helped us when we needed anything.
Pros: It was my first time flying with Turkish airlines. I was surprised that economy class was treated like first class in other airlines. I felt like a queen! The food was just unbelievably good (usually I'm not excited about food on planes). I can't imagine what experience you get in actual first class then. Great job! Please, never change it!
Cons: The boarding starts an hour before departure. It's overkill. But if it makes you do your job the way you do, that's awesome.
Cons: I t would have been much better to have a faster check in process
Pros: Almost everything but the checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent speaking poor English and casting doubt that everything is going to be fine with my trip. Instead she was reacting "the rules are changing every day" and didn't not weather I should need visa for my native country (?!) although I have showed I was born in that country (Macedonia) and the holders of US passports (which I am) -- do not need entry visa to that country. Everything else was good or excellent -- especially food and airplane crew.
Cons: The checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent at JFK (New York) on May 24 - 2017.
Cons: My bag did not make it to final destination & there was no excuse for it as there was enough time during layover AND I arrived to airport by required time before flight.
Pros: Price, Price, Price
Cons: Keep going KAyak
Cons: I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone
Pros: Food and beverages, both choices and generosity of portions and quality, excellent. Entertainment made long trip very endurable.
Cons: Rediculous chaotic check in at JFK. Standing in line an hour for a 40 minute delayed departure with virtually no communication from staff. As I had connection to make, was very unnerving.
Pros: The crew on the flight were very nice
Cons: As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated.
Cons: I've flown Turkish Airlines for years, and in the recent months I've noticed the thing I really loved about them- their service, food and beverages, have gone down. The quality and availability isn't what it was 3 or 4 years ago.
Pros: Definitely would recommend Turkish airline Great experience overall
Pros: There's nothing to like when the Federal Aviation administration bans direct flights from US to Istanbul, Turkey
Cons: I hate that KAYAK sells me this package and after collecting their commission the only customer support is to direct me to subcontractors which in turn direct me to the airline which in turn NEVER PICKS THEIR F*CKING PHONES UP!!! BAD BAD BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE #NEVEREVERKAYAK
Pros: They fed you well, great entertainment for 11 hrs (didn't feel like it at all).
Cons: Because of delay they left me to sleep on the airport in Istanbul. I am pregnant and nobody didn't wanted to help me at transfer desk. Last time in my life with Turkish Airlines.
Pros: Amazing service ! Great food! Great amenities ! Very clean!!
Pros: Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods.
Cons: Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish
Pros: Turkish airlines is the best European airline I ever flew on . Great service, very friendly flight attendants , up to date technology with the tv. Great price!!! Turkish impressed me, I heard they were good but didn't expect this good
Cons: First time traveling via Philippines airlines, was hoping for a good direct flight, was just very disappointed. Not much variety in food, no really onboard vegetarian or seafood options. Comfort wise economy seat are bit tighter compared to other international airlines. Crew was very helpful, did their best to accommodate to what they had to work with, their crew truly saves their short-givings.
Pros: Passengers and crew were all nice and accommodating. Food was great!
Cons: Temperature was very cold 21C but perhaps that is to inhibit spread of germs.
Cons: Please balance your serving with what you pair with the rice, there’s a lot of rice little vayand
Cons: Many changes and mistakes
Pros: having the access to a direct flight to the Philippines.
Cons: enforcing rules and regulations too passengers. as a person of purchasing additional leg room, this should be enforced to pay for additional leg room vs just giving that additional space for free. This is the second time I experienced and this has not changed since last year.
Cons: Hoping to have a flight on time and not delayed.
Cons: 4 hours late departure from jfk.
Pros: Entertainment options were excellent. Lots of choice. Staff were friendly.
Cons: Flight attendants need to come around more often to offer water or other beverages because dehydration is such an issue on a 16+ hour flight. In addition, we boarded on time at 1:00 for a 1:45am flight but did not leave the gate until 4:00am. This jeopardized my connection in Manila.
Pros: crew was great/ airline was clean
Cons: the flight from manila to jfk. the security check was 3x. i justthought it was crazy
Cons: I do hope the cabin crews would smile more to let the passengers know they are happy to serve.
Pros: The food was good
Cons: It’s such a shame that Philippine Airlines (PAL) charged extra for aisle and window seats! There was so much vacant seats during the flight. This was a deliberate way of PAL to extract more money from their passengers. In the future, my family and I will not choose PAL anymore. We felt cheated.
Cons: seat not comfortable, tray table hard to pull out, flight delayed 2 hours, flight crew didnt have immigration card (therefore had to wait in immigration line additional 25 min)
Pros: The crew was really good and professional.
Cons: Pls add quantity to the food. There was not enough meat to the amount of rice or pasta served. I got hungry between meals. Water was also not offered often enough between meals.
Pros: Great seats (Premium Economy) and very friendly crew.
Cons: A descent selection of movies, both old and new. But towards the end, I they kept stopping and I had to restart (from where I left off) a few times.
Pros: Not much. Both flights to and from Manila were delayed. The flight out was delayed pre-boarding by about 15-min and then about 30-min in the plane on the tarmac. Leaving Manila was delayed boarding by about 1-hr and we landed about 30-min late. Philippine Airlines operation has gotten so much worse.
Cons: Everything. From the chaos at Check-in on the Manila side from the understaffed and overwhelmed employees, to the gate control and communication with passengers at a reasonable time for the delays. Staff at MNL Terminal 2 for PA seem not to care and there seems to be no management that exists.
Pros: great flight great service
Cons: Food was alright but could have been better.
Pros: Yes, my first time Philippines Airlines experience was impressive
Pros: Yes PAL FA are always excellent and the Pilot Captain n Co Pilot really made us all safe.
Pros: Aside from the scare of not making my flight because it was overbooked. I think the boarding process could have been a little more efficient. The staff are amazing as always which is why PAL is my preferred airline when traveling to and within Philippines.
Cons: Since I have pretty broad shoulders, it’s difficult to sleep in the isles. Not to mention the multiple babies crying. Outside of that, everything was wonderful.
Cons: Missed the connection and had to pay to rebook
Pros: Great service and so much leg room
Cons: The people at the boarding counter weren’t helpful and not willing to help with my questions.
Pros: Friendly, helpful, and patient are the words that come to mind. And very pretty, if that doesn't sound too sexist.
Cons: Delay boarding at jfk
Pros: food when it finally arrived
Cons: waiting in plane 4 hours with no updates on status
Cons: The flight was delayed 2+ hours, not getting in Vancouver until after 5am. Everyone on the flight, passengers and staff were extremely rude. Never taking this airline again!! Also, there was no food left by the time the served me near the end of the plane.
Pros: I like the direct flight to Vancouver
Cons: I checked in early and was given a middle seat. I have back problems and walk with a cane and asked at the check in desk if I could have a window or aisle. I was told no because the flight was completely booked. I arrived three hours early and checked in online so I could get a better seat and they still said no. No one was able to help me. The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no apology. I always fly Philippine Airlines because IV always been really pleased with the service. This past flight makes me question that decision going forward.
Pros: On time arrival
Pros: Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)
Pros: organized departure / arrival aircraft cleanliness pleasant staff great food & entertainment / free alcohol great leg room
Pros: They have the friendliest flight crew I've ever seen.
Cons: There was too much leg room. I'm not used to that.
Pros: crew is very caring and attentive, food was delicious,
Cons: the business class seats should be upgraded into more comfortable flat beds, biz class bathrooms too cramped!
Pros: What? Free check-in for one bag? Free full meal?? Thank you!!!
Pros: flight, service --great
Cons: check in --vry problematic.
Pros: Although the flight was delayed the boarding process was very smooth. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient.
Cons: Long check in lines even though we checked in online. Flight delay.
Pros: Wheelchair assistance was very good
Cons: Entertainment equipment on board is outdated
Pros: The crew was really nice.
Cons: It's a 6.5 hour international flight so I was expecting a meal to be served, not those underwelming snack box/wrap options to be available for purchase. Also, no blanquet and pillow.
Cons: Was a good experience
Cons: First of all, both on my departure and return flight, despite having boarded 30 minutes ahead of schedule, we remained on the floor for an additional hour (both for taking and after landing). Next, the flight attendants did a poor job of ensuring that everyone did not get up when we landed and the seatbelt sign was on, and this led to herds of people running through the aisles and rushing to get off past those that were patiently waiting. The leg room is very limited, unless it is an empty flight. The red wine was perhaps the worst I have ever had. AND the wifi that was available for purchase was 40 USD for only 150 mb of data which is absolutely ridiculous.
Pros: flight update via email
Cons: late boarding ground crew not announcing chnages in the schedule no inflight entertainment PAL app does not work propoerly
Pros: The lemon butter fish was one of the better airplane meals I've ever had. Boarding was quick and smooth. Taiwanese people take the longest of any nationality to board a plane (they have a series of "pre-seating" maneuvers which cause huge backups). Despite this, the flight attendants politely humored them and were not pushy. Had this happened in the US, the flight attendants would have told them to sit down, get out of the way, and do their aisle stretching exercises and random meanders around the plane AFTER all passengers had been seated!
Cons: The plane was old and dirty. The flight attendants seemed more interested in gossiping with each other than greeting passengers (though one or two were very good and professional). Only one flight attendant could speak Chinese. This was not a problem for me, though it was for some of the Taiwanese tourists.
Pros: Good flight with excellent Serb=vice form the crew
Cons: Inflight entertainment US for one whole sections of the aircraft. The aircraft looked tired the table fittingwas broken ,
Pros: We got 2 food vouchers one at night, the other early in the morning. However the food establishment was so pricy a chocolate bar was $7 USD.
Cons: 13 hour delay, would not let us go home, would not cancel the flight, instead pushed the boarding time back one hour every hour starting at 4am. Flight was supposed to leave JFK by 11:55pm, we left at 1pm the following day. It wasn't solely due to the weather (we expected a slight delay), but in the morning, plenty of other flights were running regularly, while there were no updates. No one that cared, all the staff just told us it wasn't their fault. (Which is true to an extent), but all so mentioned that they were tired too, and they're exhausted too, which made many people angrier. They deflected a lot of statements.
Cons: Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)
Pros: Very friendly and helpful cabin staff. Still the most covenient flight to and from the Philippines.
Cons: The line at JFK. There we not enough seats for passengers. Sink was clogged in one restroom and remained so even after the "technical" layover at YVR.
Cons: There was confusion and poor organization at the check in counter. The check in started late and there was a 500 ft line up to check in at Philippine Airlines. We waited 2 hours in the plane for 4 people who were late for the flight, then the cargo handlers didn't show up. We left at 5am instead of 3am. The flight attendants didn't seem to know why we weren't leaving. Two short announcements were made in 2 hours that didn't explain properly why we sat there so long. The food was wretched. The flight attendants were pleasant but the captain and the purser's announcements were hard to understand with poor English.
Pros: Vegetarian meal - way better than delta
