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 was amazing"
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."

Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."

Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"

Pros: "everything, excellent job"

Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"

Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"
Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."
Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."

Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."

Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."
Pros: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the bathrooms there was only one type of tissue paper beside the toilet paper. Adding a thicker paper towel like most airlines do would be better so that passengers can clean up any water splashes as soft tissue is not effective for this."
Pros: "It was not a full flight. It was ok."
Cons: "Well, I noticed when the person in front of me reclined their seat, I had a hard time adjusting the entertainment screen so I could see it properly."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "Comfortable wide seats, good service"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."
Cons: "They seats were too close. The person in front had his seat back and was practically in my lap. Annoying."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "The seats feel like a prison at times. It's a pain to ask to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "The staff was good and food as well had a great trip"
Pros: "One of the best cabin crew. Curtious, friendly, helpful and we're always available in the cabin."
Cons: "Touch screens are hardly touch sensitive..you may need to replace the screens.."
Cons: "The flight attendants would forget me when tending to everyone"
Pros: "saet food and cabin crew"
Cons: "Flight from Seoul to Phuket did not have outlets if that is something you require"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The vegetarian ovo lacteo food could be much better. Because I am vegetarian doesn’t mean I can’t eat chocolate"
Pros: "Nothing! They made me very upset!"
Cons: "They made me cancel my 6 month stay to a 30 day stay when I arrived at the airport, otherwise they would not allow me on the plane! They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"
Pros: "After took off 5-6hours later very bad smalls comes from the bathroom."
Pros: "Ground staff in Korea and Philippines is helpful."
Cons: "Delayed flight which cause us to missed our succeeding flights."
Pros: "Overall the boarding experience and crew were some of the best I've had. Food was excellent and wine pairings were spot on."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was pretty limited and without Wi-Fi on the flight, it was the only thing available to pass the time. Would have been nice to see a larger selection of things to watch while in transit or available Wi-Fi service to browse on my own devices."
Pros: "The entertainment had a good selection, although the headphones and connection on the armrest wasn't perfect. Also the food had a pretty good selection."
Cons: "The discomfort of being on such a long flight. Hard to be comfortable. And unable to sleep for any stretch of time."
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "Excellent personnel, really polite and helpful all the way"
Pros: "Spacious plane"
Pros: "Great seats & crew"
Pros: "I love the friendly service of the crew and how they always bend over backwards for u all the time."
Cons: "Needs more cushion on the seats."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. The flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "I had to pay $200 for an extra bag because they told me that my bags were all over weight. Come to find out, the scale was broken and my bags were actually underweight. So I ended up with 5 bags instead of 3. My main issue was comfortability. Due to the person behind me, I couldn’t push my chair back and so I had find different ways to sleep."
Cons: "when they leave laugage in korea and they deliver within 2 days"
Pros: "Great friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Both legs were late, the first nearly making me miss the next. Lost my only suitcase for the trips. Seats are really uncomfortable."
Cons: "NO OUTLETS IN SEATS FOR 14 HOURS AND TV FROM 1990"
Pros: "i like the simplicity. Asiana landed in korea Incheon which i love."
Cons: "i had to pay 200$ for an extra bag which was overweight. maybe it’s my fault but 200$ is a lot"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "few new movies in the list"
Pros: "It was nice to know that JetBlue and Asiana are connected. I did not need to claim and check my suitcase for the connecting flights anymore. The entertainment device was also nice."
Cons: "I think JFK rather than Asiana was the issue. It was quite cold inside the boarding area, and the waiting area happened to be unpleasant because of a lack of seats and the noise. The announcements before boarding happened to be annoying. Lavatory happened to become quite messy at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Chair to chair distance is spacious."
Pros: "food was ok but. sandwich was the worst i have ever seen."
Cons: "boarding was confusing."
Pros: "Service is very polite. Attendants are some of the nicest I've ever met, though their English (and PA announcements, etc) will be a bit hard to understand unless you're used to communicating with folks for whom English is a second language. They're also all softspoken, which is very soothing, but even harder to understand what they're saying! Seats are also BIG and have a great recline (seat and seat back) on the Airbus. Flying on a daytime departure from NYC to ICN I had a lot of empty seats to stretch out on and it was pretty quiet for a long flight to Asia."
Cons: "Seats are HARD! I'm not sure how you even make a hard airplane seat but they've figured it out on the Airbus for sure. The solution: get a second pillow to use as a seat cushion. Solves the problem. Also, the "upgrade" to the bulkhead seat is only good if you have a baby in a carrier or really long legs. If you like having your bags near you, or want to keep stuff at your feet to work on, or like to raise the arm between seats, or have a tray table and pocket in front of you... you won't have any of those in the bulkhead upgrade seat. And the phone customer support simply doesn't know enough English to explain these things properly. Fortunately someone else was happy to switch with me. Lastly, they really don't understand that special meals do not need to lack in flavor. Non-Lactose Meals are super boring in flavor - and there was no reason at all not to serve the bulgogi or spicy pork dishes for the NLML! They seemed surprised when I asked to switch it, which suggests to me that the attendants don't even know what 'non-lactose' means, though they were very sweet about confirming and delivering me my special (bland) meals. But asking for a packet of gochujang solves that problem!"
Cons: "WTF IS MY LUGGAGE. No compensation for my lost luggage. I had to buy clothes and basic necessities out of pocket because the airlines have no clue where my luggages went."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Great service. Delayed flight for 2 hrs"
Cons: "They lost my bag"
Pros: "Great modern, spacious and quiet plane Airbus 380, great entertainment options."
Pros: "Crew very polite; food was really good; in flight entertainment good; and plane was modern and clean. Most imprtantly our check in agent was very capable and helpful. We had a hard time checking in on line, and as a person in my 60s I very much need an asile seat which she arranged. Check in was extremely efficient in a crowded airport. Would definitley fly again."
Cons: "Check in website not good. Could not choose seats in advance. This could be much better."
Pros: "Everything. It was comfortable, the flight attendants were attentive. Before the flight, I was moved to a better seat because I require wheelchair assistance."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "The food selection is good and the service is tiptop. Highly recommend"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "2/4 bathrooms were out of order"
Pros: "I liked being seated toward the back of the plane so that me and my cat had some privacy. The crew was very polite and gave me thorough instructions for transporting my cats."
Cons: "I bought a carrier for my cat that fit the airline's specifications, but it didn't fit all the way under the seat. Because of this, I had to put my cat in the overhead bin during takeoff. This gave me and my cat a lot of stress, although they let me take her out during the landing. Also I thought the airline would open much earlier than my flight so that I could ensure the safe transfer of my pet-in-cargo."
Pros: "Crew was nice and competent"
Cons: "Cabin lights went on three quarters into the flight and wouldn't go out and there wasn't enough water"
Pros: "The economy seats are quite roomy compared to other companies. The planes and Incheon airport get upgraded every year. Inheon is probably the best place for lay-over with plenty of options for acivities, from short and long tours, Korean bath house wity overnight stay option, easy and fast immigration, and great customer service always."
Cons: "There is still some language barrier with the crew, though much less so compared to other Asian companies. They made up for it in hospitality. Food is usually good. The sandwich this time was cold cut whoch is not as appetizing for breakfast. But"
Pros: "The gluten free meal was much better on this flight and the ladies were pleasant as usual."
Cons: "Less entertainment offerings compared to our 10hr flight but other than that, all went well."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the people in the plane were very polite and the movies available were very varied and good."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Plane was clean and attendants polite"
Cons: "Boarding seemed very random as no rows were called."
Cons: "I don't have the exact flight times but flight from Seattle to Korea was suppose to arrive in Korea at around 18:00 and leave for Ho Chi Ming at 19:00. It arrived after 18:00, boarding was suppose to be at 18:40 but by the time I was able to get on the rail to the main station it was 18:40. Luckly a crew member had a sign and was calling out "HCMC". Luckily I am in good shape because we ran through the airport to the next connection as they were getting ready to close the plane doors. Need to have someone walk and time, the time of arrival from Seattle into Korea, onto the rail, to the main station and distance to gate 40. You may very well miss your flight."
Pros: "Crew were professional, helpful and attentive. Food was good for economy class. I have never seen a plane board so fast and I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Couple inches more leg room."
Pros: "The flight attendants were responsive and polite. The foot rests at the economy seats were a nice bonus. The bathrooms were well stocked and mostly clean. The entertainment was OK. There were mostly action movies which aren't my thing."
Cons: "The check-in line was about an hour long. There were way too few people at the counters for a very large plane. I pre-weighed my bags on scales that weren't being used and moved things around. The really stressful part was my carry on bag. It was overweight and transferred things to my handbag and into my suitcases as much as I could. The only things in my carry on were my laptop and medication. It was still 2 kilos overweight. I appealed to the manager who said I had to check it. Checking a bag with my medication would be dangerous to my health and we know they wouldn't reimburse me for the theft of my laptop. The manager, Yeonju Lee (first name may be spelled incorrectly) was completely inflexible and devoid of compassion as was the check in agent. They said the restriction was due to security measures, which is a lie. I've traveled all over the world with carry on over 20 pounds and there has never been a problem. They said I had to correct the problem in 7 minutes or I would not be allowed on the plane. Ultimately, I almost missed the flight. I had to ask people in the security line if I could go ahead of them. If I can avoid it, I will never fly Asiana again. The seats are hard as rocks which is difficult for a 14 hour flight."
Pros: "The hospitality was excellent and the flight flawless."
Cons: "The migraines from traveling to the other side of the world."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew were very polite and kind."
Cons: "There wasnt anything i didn't like."
Pros: "It was a very efficient flight. Everything was just quick. The flight crew did everything in a very programmed way."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "the attention of the flight attendants"
Pros: "The food was excellent. Possibly the best plane food I've ever had. The crew was friendly, despite subpar service."
Cons: "To start, the flight was delayed, and the gate crew did not provide us with any useful information throughout the delay. The service on this flight was very slow. This was exemplified by the fact that I was only able to obtain 2 beverages on a nearly 13 hour flight in business class, despite my constant queries. The seats were also relatively small and uncomfortable for business class, and definitely not up to par with other A380s I flown (e.g. Emirates is far superior). As a tall person, this is important to me, so I was pretty unhappy about this. Lastly, the entertainment options on the flight were unbelievably bad. Almost all the programs were Korean, and the few English-speaking programs were terrible. Truly, this is the worst entertainment selection I have ever seen on any international flight."
Cons: "Hmm..... nothing."
Pros: "There were toiletries available so you did not have to grab from the stowaway"
Cons: "I asked for a non beef option and they served me both beef AND pork. When I asked for a snack instead they said they did not have any and when I requested anything so I would not be going 8+ hours without food they did not bat an eyelash. The attendants were accommodating for their Korean passengers and passed RIGHT by. So incredibly unacceptable."
