Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat is very comfotable. But on the fright from Japan to Bangkok very upset me and my husband. We sat seperated, but on the plane we saw 2 seats available, I asked woman crew that can we move to that seats. She went to talk with the guy who sat on the aisle seat. I heard he said he reserved"
Cons: "The seat beside him for his friend. And the crew said to me she so sorry I couldn't move to sit with my husband. But later no body beside him and he lay down 3 seats all the way. And the crew do nothing for us. We very dissapointed."
Cons: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "Siting at exit row gave more legroom thus more comfortable and more sleep. Disadvantage is that apurar must be stowed in bin overhead which is not within reach. It’s a bit of inconvenient and feeling insecure for important papers and $ inside."
Cons: "We did not make this flight and had to take the train instead"
Pros: "Everything was good but we were not able to select seats on the leg from Tokyo to Nagoya until arrive at check in and by that time all seats assigned and we could not be seated together and had to have middle seats. ANA needs to work this out..."
Cons: "The sound for the entertain in seat 26G never worked....unsatisfactory for such a new aircraft “Dreamliner”, make it a dream."
Pros: "The cabin crews were excellent. Food was delicious. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Overall had a great experience"
Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."
Pros: "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."
Pros: "I like the service. I like the way they checked my back stuff and put back very neat. I’m very happy with your company,"
Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"
Cons: "ANA changed my selected aisle seat to middle one without explanation. It never happens when I fly with United."
Pros: "I would definitely fly ANA again they have a fenomenal service and I love the politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Noisy passengers, no paper towels in the toilets only thin napkins. Limited food options."
Pros: "Friendly attentive staff."
Cons: "The seat was narrow and after 9 hours, not comfortable... Normal for economy though"
Pros: "Everything about this airline made my flight pleasant. The staff were polite and accommodating"
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Pros: "Service by the crew and how boarding is organized by different queing lines for quick and more efficient boarding process."
Cons: "The personal entertaiment touch screen worked intermitently. When the touch screen did not work, i had to use the remote control to do what i want it to do. Boarding process experience can be improve with better sign for the queing lines and have boarding crew station at end of every quing lines to make sure all passengers are queing in the correct line."

Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."

Cons: "Lounge is full and food in lounge not spectacular. Ground crew unfriendly"

Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."

Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."
Pros: "I liked the food and the personal television you get. You can play video games on it which was cool."
Cons: "The wifi cost $20 for the whole flight. Pretty expensive compared to other airlines!"
Pros: "Need to step it up with the food, don't have time for shitty service this day and age"

Cons: "early morning I would like to have a cup of coffee really bad. Nobody around and nobody brings any coffee."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating."
Pros: "did not feel like I had stayed n the plane too long. I think I slept through most of the flight and was more comfortable since there was an empty seat next to me. Food was great, enjoyed ANA cuisine, even if not a lot. Who needs to eat anyway when all you do is sit, sleep and watch. Of course some work. The baggage was also quick and I was probably one of the first to get out. It took me about 30 minutes from the gate to the terminal exit."
Cons: "can't avoid turbulence, but I felt safe in the 777."
Pros: "Crew was great and was happy to get gluten free food i could eat"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"

Seats are too small/don't look clean. Movie selection was poor. Plane was delayed! Luggage left in Bejing."
Cons: "Delayed an hour due to inbound flight late on schedule"
Cons: "Ca Needs to be more clear on who can get a transit entry , I with a US Passport didn't get one and stuck in pek airport for 25 hours ,"

Pros: "The plane made no unscheduled landings."
Cons: "The extreme delay that caused me to nearly miss my connection with Air China, the incredibly low level of English spoken on a flight originated in the US, and the complete dismissal of three cabin crew members when I asked about arrangements to be expedited to our connecting flight to Bangkok. Avoid this airline completely, and if at all possible, transiting through Beijing Capital Airport."
Pros: "Number of crew and attentiveness; meal service on a short flight and efficiency in delivery"
Cons: "Mass boarding rather than by section"
Cons: "Transfer in Beijing gave only one hour between flights. Impossible to make with China's cumbersome security procedure. Why did they give us those flights? Told staff on plane that we had a tough connection. No communication or procedure to help make transfer. Got to the gate BEFORE flight was to take off but plane was uncoupled from ramp and NO STAFF present. Went to another Air China gate and could not get any help. No supervisors to help. Five people missed the connection. Had to wait over EIGHT hours for next flight and was offered NOTHING by way of compensation. Does not appear that Air Chine wants to live up to the country's status in the world. Very poor service."
Cons: "the food was so bad. no vegetarian options"
Pros: "Kayak messages about the gate number, delay, and so on all went into my spam folder and found them later after the flight"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"

Pros: "Their boarding are faster"
Cons: "Crew don't pay attention to your request"
Pros: "The food was very good."
Cons: "Our TVs in front of our seats did not work. No entertainment for 14 hours. Horrible. Also We were forced to check a carry on on our first leg. that had our emergency essentials. Everything was rush rush. Then when we arrived in Chiang Mai. None of our luggage was there. We are traveling to another destination and pray we have All 3 bags. They have notified us that 2 bags will be here tomorrow. We were forced to check a carry on that had our emergency essentials. Everything was rush rush. Then when we arrived in Chiang Mai. None of our luggage was there. We are traveling to another destination and pray we have All the luggage by Thursday. When we leave."

Pros: "My Sleep"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ELSE"

Pros: "Air China aircraft is very new and clean."

Cons: "No leg room."

Cons: "We couldn't use out phones, all I wanted to do is listen to music I already have save to my phone. The food was horrible."
Pros: "Dude at counter who had to change our seats as we were flying with an infant was great. Other people who were assisting us didn't know how to fix the issue but he did. Then when we boarded, he made sure we went first as we had all that baby stuff you have to carry!"
Cons: "I have flown Air China 6 times and every time we leave late. One time it caused me to miss a connecting flight and I was stuck in LA for two days. Food is not good. Buy snacks before you board. Movies/entertainment is poor. Nothing to watch for 15 hours."
