Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line.

Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."

Cons: "On this particular flight, a nice glass of white wine would have been nice but they had beer instead. I survived. Additionally, an upgrade on their earphones would be nice. Their sound quality is not the best."

Pros: "Stewardess service was good. Food was ok . Seats on the economy was good too plus the movie"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "I flown KAL business class a number of times and it’s ok this was first back of the bus experience and it’s awful. I could give ten things I did not like about this flight but I’ll sum it up with one. I brought my own inflatable sleep pillow onboard and after using for about an hour I was woken up and told it was against company regulation to use your own pillow."

Cons: "The website did not let me choose the seat when I tried to check-in. In addition, the flight attendant was not welcoming because she kept saying that you cannot have more food :("

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and assistance"
Cons: "nONE"

Pros: "On time, clean, friendly, comfortable, helpful."

Cons: "The airplane was very old & the seats were not comfortable. For a 15+ hour flight, it was unpleasant."

Pros: "Boarded on time and quickly. Smooth ride made me fall asleep for most of the flight almost the second I sat down (I had been out the night before so that probably also explains it). They left a note saying I was sleeping when they gave out meals and offered it to me even though we were about to descend. I didn't eat the food, nor did I use the in-flight entertainment, so I can't attest to the quality in those regards."
Cons: "Seats a little uncomfortable but this time around I got a window seat as well as two empty seats behind me so I was able to stretch out a bit more and be liberal with my space."

Pros: "I like the City airport service in Seoul, you can drop off your luggage early so you can enjoy the city more."

Pros: "The flight attendants are very attentive and respectful."
Cons: "Economy seats are not the comfiest!"

Pros: "Great value plus layover hotel bonus"
Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "Boarding was very organized, service was excellent, plane was clean"

Pros: "The boarding went smoothly considering the number of people on board. It took a while to take off and to land, but that's because the airports are busy. The crew was incredibly well dressed in professional attire. The accommodations were amazing - the flight came with the standard pillow/blanket combo, disposable slippers, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, a snack, drinks, and the attendants dimmed the lights whenever they weren't serving - all free. The entertainment was amazing - I watched four Hollywood movies that I had been wanting to watch, and that was one section of the movies. There were also TV series and music available, both in English and Korean."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the crew's attention, especially from the center seat while speaking English. One of the meals gave me terrible gas, which was uncomfortable for me and my seat mates."

Pros: "Generally, i liked the flight. We were granted our request for a change in seats when i found out that me and my husband were not seated side by side."
Cons: "The entertainment has limited choice of movies."

Pros: "I liked stewardess's kindenesses"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "Fairly smooth boarding, no problems with luggage."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating in economy, difficult to make it through aisles due to narrow width. Back ache on this long flight. Bathrooms don't seem to be enough for number of people on this flight. Arrival time is a bit late. Very bumpy flight at 10K."

Pros: "Beverage service satisfactory."
Cons: "The fact that this JAL Flight was operated by Korean Air meant that not only was the staff different, the the plane itself was an older and smaller model with extremely little room and zero entertainment systems. Both of these developments were severely disappointing given that the 2 hour round trip was 440USD, and flying on a budget airline would have provided basically the same experience for much cheaper. Furthermore the flight was delayed for over an hour taking off at almost 10:00pm instead of 8:40pm. The meal service was quite disappointing as well given the long wait. This delay nearly caused me to miss the last train into the city, in which case I would have needed to take an incredibly expensive Tokyo taxi ride to my accommodation. This was avoided by luck alone, as the airport immigration lines at Haneda airport were uncharacteristically empty. All in all, it was a surprisingly frustrating experience and remarkably stressful. I have known JAL and Korean Air to both be excellent carriers and was quite disappointed to have such a poor flight experience could have been exceeded by an average Peach or Vanilla Air flight."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "Over all, satisfaction service! Food, courteousness & facility"
Cons: "None zero"

Pros: "The flight staff is always a pleasure to fly with."

Pros: "The customer service was fabulous. There were a lot more amenities than I expected. Lots of variety of new movies to watch during the flight."

Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "The food sucks, the seats are hard and uncomfortable"

Pros: "The stewardess working first class was very rude to my son. Her negative attitude set the tone for the entire flight and ruined our experience."

Cons: "A quick drink service would have been nice, it was provided on the same flight going the opposite direction"

Pros: "Getting to know the crew who served me in delta one was great! Food service was done pretty quickly and good snacks available."

Cons: "We read in the Delta onboard magazine about Delta’s commitment to women. Yet Delta coverups a rape by one male employee against a recent immigrant in a Delta vehicle. What say you?"

Pros: "Nice helpful crew, plane was clean, arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."

Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! They were helpful and professional. Made the flight wonderful. Our stewardess, Brenda Joyce, has great energy. My daughters and I were taking a trip to honor my husband who recently passed and she was phenomenal at keeping our spirits up."

Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."

Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."

Pros: "Comfortable, not-overstuffed plane, friendly crew, excellent service, lots of good food & snacks. Travel as it used to be."

Pros: "Ease of boarding and deboarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (naturally) so the crew was rushed and inattentive. No pre-flight beverages in first class, and then no follow up service once aloft unless you asked. Makes me wonder why I’m paying extra for mediocre service."

Pros: "Courteous flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seats were a little small."

Pros: "Flight attendant Gillian Awesome. Crew was fun and made my kids first flight great."

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 minutes"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"

Pros: "Free tv"

Pros: "Getting to ATL"
Cons: "We boarded, they closed the door, told us to turn our phones off, acted like we were leaving, then informed us we had an hour delay. The flight attendants remarked that they couldn't hold us hostage and could get off if we want. The whole thing wasn't done properly."

Pros: "No problems curling up against the bulkhead and going to sleep. Crew was very considerate about not broadcasting messages to awaken travelers during this overnight flight."
Cons: "Was a bit warm but in a full plane what can you expect?"

Pros: "Staff did a good job boarding the plane."

Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Great cabin service, attentive and polite. Comfort Plus seats are worth the extra few bucks."
Cons: "Nothing. Low rating for entertainment only because there really wasn't any, but I wouldn't have used it anyway, so no big deal."

Pros: "Very nice Flight Crew from Detroit to Las Vegas!!"
Cons: "The ground crew (in Detroit) were unfriendly and rude. I asked two simply which line I should be in, the First lady just ignored me, the second gentleman rudely told me where to stand. They were not terribly busy at the time and I politely asked as I was unsure which line to be in. The flight attendants (only from ORF to Detroit) also were unfriendly with an attitude. Just simple stuff. I asked for extra ice, she thought I said no ice. Simple mistake, no big deal but when I explained that I actually wanted extra ice she was perturbed!"

Cons: "Offer more healthy choices for food. Give larger amounts of beverages particularly water."

Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."

Pros: "First checked bag free."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. It would be nice to be informed that although beverage service is suspended, you can still request drinks that are available. I had to find this on the website and didn't get anything by a tiny water bottle for both of my 3+ hour flights."
Cons: "I understand main cabin isn't supposed to be as upscale as 1st class, but it would do well if the seats were a bit more comfortable and the headrest was softer, it feels like a lump or sack of potatoes. Very stiff and hard. Also, having enough arm room would be nice so you're not fighting the person next to you for space on the armrest."

Pros: "Everything great"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Yes"

Pros: "Excellent seats and early arrival"
Cons: "Lack of food choices or entertainment"

Cons: "I loved everything"

Cons: "Check in staff was unprepared for volume of people. When asking an American Airlines agent if I could use the priority check in because I had priority seating I was told no. I was informed by a customer going that way that I indeed could. When I got in line for the priority check in, the agent looked over and very loudly said that I was in the wrong check in area. Given the volume at which it was said to me I felt embarrassed, and was upset at the fact that I then had to respond that I indeed was in the correct location."

Pros: "Great food, professional conduct"
Cons: "Couldn't control window tint after we left California"

Cons: "one staff member was extremely rude when asked for another beverage."

Pros: "We were seated in economy but we had a pretty good flight. The only rough part was the fact that it was 10 hours of sitting, and that was due to the destination not AA's service. As someone who is used to United and Delta for flying, I felt that the service offered kinda rocked."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."

Pros: "Entertainment was great. I really liked the touch screens on the chairbacks. Food was fine for airplane food. It came more than I expected. Get sandwiches over the meals, they are better quality. A vegetarian guy had a hard time but the crew tried to help him out. Comfort was ok for a 13 hour trip. The chairs are not really the best and my back hurt after a while. Make sure you stretch! Crew was nice except for one lady. But she wasent rude just... non responsive. Other members were fantastic though. Boarding was very painless."

Pros: "Flight crew kept us advised of the weather situation (thunderstorms/turbulence). Did a good job of finding a route that was fairly smooth. Overall very pleasant flight and crew."
Cons: "It's an MD-80. Need old cigarette-lighter style plug to be able to charge anything. No inflight entertainment unless you use snail-speed Go-Go internet service."

Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and we were stuck with very warm conditions for 2 hours and 40 minutes before we took flight."

Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."

Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."

Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."

Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."

Pros: "Selection of movies was excellent. I requested vegetarian meals, which were good, although not filling. Thankfully the flight was not crowded and we were able to get a row to ourselves. Flight attendants were very nice. Appreciated the frequent beverage offerings to stay hydrated. Overall a good experience."
Cons: "Paid the extra for an aisle seat, which was irritating to have to do, but my husband has arthritic knees and needs to get up frequently to walk around to avoid pain,"

Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."

Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."

Cons: "We ordered fruits meal but the crew didn't get the request. I have a confirmation email of the meal"

Pros: "The crew were friendly. We arrived ahead of schedule."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional and the seats were slightly more spacious than a typical US domestic flight, though still not comfortable. The entertainment was excellent. Many of the movies were recent releases and lots of award winners. The earbud sound was awful, but I may have just gotten a dud pair. Luckily I had brought my own. the vegan meal was surprisingly good."

Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seat was kind of tight."

Cons: "Didn't have a whole lot of movie options relative to other airlines Food was basic but ok Zone boarding was not a good idea"

Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "I liked the selection of movies and entertainment. I had brought a book, podcasts, and games, but I ended up just watching movies."
Cons: "The seats recline so far that the headrest screen ended up way too close to comfortably watch movies or effectively use the tray. The people in front of my wife and I kept their seats fully reclined, even during the meals, and it was very uncomfortable. One of the meals had a pepper sauce that had such a strong smell that I was nauseous until the end of the flight. While the chicken meal I ate was fine, there wasn't much chicken at all."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Taller so hard to get comfortable."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, always offering water and anything else we needed. The captain was very good about warning us about turbulence. Boarding the plane was quick and efficient."

Cons: "Waaaay too hot."

Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"

Pros: "I was concerned the length of travel. The flight and staff were very enjoyable. The meals were tasty. Will definitely book again."

Cons: "Food was terrible Flight was not full and I tried to get bettuer seating but I was told there is none available. Then after boarding they had someone else with the same seat number. Very strange"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours at Narita and then again in Toronto for another 2 hours. Plus my family and I were tired from the 11 1/2 hour flight and when we get to check in the attendants were very rude, almost like it was a bother to them when we asked for help, it was probably because I interrupted their conversation. Every airports kiosks are different and that was our first time going through there so we just wanted to make sure that we did it right. Then when we get to the gate where we're suppose to leave out from, I asl the attendant there who I can talk to about forgotten bag on board. She then goes to tell me that I need to call the 800 #, Abd I said but I'm here at the airport can't they just bring it to this gate and she then got an attitude and said that they couldn't do that and I would just have to go to the lost and found which was downstairs. I was on the line with lost and found before I went to ask her any questions, and I mentioned to her that I had been on hold for 30 minutes, and she said they weren't going to answer. So I then asked hire am I suppose to get my bag then? She repeated about calling the 800 #, and at this time a lady runs up the counter thinking that she missed her flight. She shows the attendant her phone and is hysterical thinking that she missed her flight and the flight attendant told her just go sit down it's not here yet you didn't miss it. The customer then starts yelling in another language and the flight attendant just tells your just go sit down calm down and go sit down. She's doing all of this while I'm standing there she pulls out her phone and then told her co-worker I should put her on YouTube the way they do us. All the while I'm standing there because I still have more questions and she just ignored me like I wasn't even standing there. I more than likely will never fly this airline again, I'm paying for their services and to get treated like this, no thanks!!"

Pros: "Overall air cabin crew service was great. Food was average. Seat was comfortable. Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "My elbow keeps pressing on the light button on the remote on the right arm rest which was slightly irritating. But nothing major"

Pros: "On time departure Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendant should be friendlier"

Pros: "The seats were unbelievably squishy. And the crew was quite rough."

Pros: "I loved the entertainment options, we must of had a very old plane on the trip there because it lacked entertainment unless you brought your own tablet/smart phone or paid to rent one. The food was terrible both directions, please fix that because it's a long flight to be hungry!"
Cons: "Food needs serious improvement"

Cons: "Food was just okay."

Pros: "the crew was super nice. very friendly and caring. the entertainment was perfect. boarding was easy and timely."
Cons: "the seats offer little to no lumbar support. this was midigated a little with the pillow and blanket, it didnt really do much. for someone who has lower back issues, this was a big problem, a reason i am dreading my flight home. on top of that, it was my first time flying internationally, so i had no clue i had to hunt down my flight via flight time board."

Pros: "Boarding was on time. Comfortable sheet."
Cons: "Food was horrible, and table was dirty and looked like it wasn't cleaned. Poor music and movie selection."

Pros: "Great airplane service, people and amenities"

Pros: "Food and crew were awesome, very attentive to details."
Cons: "Got delayed for almost two hours so rush hour in Japan was my welcome party and it was horrible, when you are on a tight schedule two hours is two much, lost my flight connection to Hiroshima, had to go on bullet train which added 4 more hours instead of 1:25 on a plane."

Pros: "NIL"
Cons: "Missed it due to our first flight being delayed- ended up with ANA air. SCORE!"

Pros: "I had never flown before the day I flew with Air Canada, and the flight I had with them was an international flight to boot- about 13 hours. I was very comfortable in my seat, and caught a fair amount of sleep on the plane. The food was pretty good for "airplane food" reputation, and Air Canada's in flight entertainment is abundant."

Pros: "It was excellent!"

Pros: "Everyone was super polite"

Pros: "Although I had to walk quite a way to get to my seat, once I got there, I had a very comfortable and enjoyable flight. The food was good, the bathrooms were close and easy to get to, the crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wish there were more wholesome movies or audio books to choose from."

Cons: "Not a single flight during my entire trip, including flying back home, departed on time."

Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."

Pros: "Decent movie and game selections."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unhappy, sassy and got frustrated easily."

Pros: "Not much. Maybe the boarding is not bad and the flight is on time"
Cons: "The crew is rude and unprofessional. Really low efficient and the seats are uncomfortable. Too tide for a 14 hours flight"

Pros: "Awful"
Cons: "They stole some of my property of my checked bag. Bunch of thieves. Arrogant people like Sue from Vancouver. She is also nasty ugly."

Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."

Pros: "It was better fright than expected. We didn't enough time to enjoy Canada airport . We made a onetime fright but took long wait at customs."

Cons: "once again quantity and quality of food was below that provided by the five other international carriers I have used in the recent past"

Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue. The food was horrible. I will never fly Air Canada again."

Cons: "My tv screen froze and when a meal was served I let the flight attendant know. She said they would reset it. An hour later it hadn't been reset. I turned on my call light. No one ever came. A male flight attendant proceeded to chat with a woman about hockey for a half hour or more and ignored my light. He went away for a bit and came back and chatted some more. For the last 3 plus hours of the flight my screen didn't work."

Pros: "Movie selection was awesome, got to see Spectre"

Pros: "The entertainment system was great - good selection, and I really appreciated the ability to make a list of what I wanted to watch"
