Perfect service and very nice staff I will fly with Japan airlines every time if I go back Thailand thank you very much

Flight was delayed. Food is not good. Crew are confused

The number of flights available from the west coast US to southeast Asia has been severely reduced to the covid pandemic so flyers do not have all the options as in the past. So I reluctantly flew on JAL despite all the negative reviews [Spoiler: the reviews were correct]. Although I was pleased with the efficiency of the flight, the sincerity of the crew, and the high quality meals, the substandard business class accommodations made the whole flight uncomfortable. The chair was small, cramped, lumpy, and offered little privacy. It by no means compares to business class on China Eastern or Singapore Airlines -- the groups I usually fly. JAL will need to significantly upgrade business class if I consider this flight in the future.

There were about 20 people on the flight. It was like getting business-class service from the crew.

Pros: "Every thing in airplane was wonderful. I would like to recommend this airline to my friends"
Cons: "You are best ."
Pros: "I like the spirit of Christmas in some of the staff."
Cons: "Board people by section instead of a madsive line."
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."
Pros: "Nothing to complaint. Excellent airline nowadays"
Pros: "The crew that checked me and those who were onboard were very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Better choices of movies on board."
Cons: "Boarding in New York could have been better organized"
Pros: "Privacy of window side seat"
Pros: "The food the service and the staff"
Pros: "The food the service and flight was great"
Cons: "No service. No drink, no snack, flight delayed. Missed last bus from airport to station at base where stationed. No happy"
Pros: "Everything ! Makes me what to travel to Japan more."
Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "Excellent Service, food and beverage. Comfortable aircraft cabin atmosphere."
Cons: "in-flight Wifi is not working"
Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."
Pros: "It was very good no prO lens at all:)"
Pros: "Spoke english"
Cons: "Over all"
Pros: "Premium economy is more worth that the price"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "They were every where all the time! No sitting around in the back like most airlines. Movies Hallie and many first run and Oscar nominated."
Pros: "JAL is hands above any of the American airlines....so polite, helpful, diligent and graceful. Food much better as well, and newer planes."
Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The food could have been a little more mainstream"
Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese meals"
Pros: "Very clean and modern aircraft. Staff were friendly and attentive. They provided directions and a guide for travelers transitioning from domestic to international flights. Strongly recommend Japan Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing, well done."
Pros: "Politeness. It definitely stands out."
Cons: "Coffee. It just didn’t taste good to me. But they had wine!"
Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "This terminal is not easy to find. You have to take bus from the main terminal."
Pros: "Great tasting food, and nearly constant beverage service."
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous, spoke multiple languages, they came around multiple times to offer beverages, pilot/staff kept us informed about reason for delay to gate, arrived earlier than expected, usb charging available, bathroom was cleaned multiple times during flight, clean bathroom, and there were toothbrushes/sanitary pads available in the bathroom, and enjoyed that they had Haagen Daaz ice cream."
Cons: "The pocket in front had no room to put a drink/bottle. Food was relatively better compared to other airlines but okay. Movie selection was good but compared to other airlines has less."
Pros: "The legroom is comfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "Economy seating the best in the business."
Cons: "Old movies"
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everyone on the flight was very nice and helpful. Food was excellent! There were a lot of choices of movies to watch. It was probably the best flight experience I've ever had and I travel overseas quite a lot. If I ever get the chance to fly them again, I will. Great service and outstanding experience."
Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"
Pros: "prompt check in , ample baggages allowances, food and overall steward services."
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The Pilot communicated to the passengers only one time during this 4 1/2 hour flight. The flight attendants were making the announcements for arrival information and timing. Maybe in this culture the Pilot is above speaking to the passengers."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "Food was quite good."
Cons: "They did't speak English even though I am not Japanese. They spoke Japanese to me so, I felt little bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight staff on Japan airlines was great. The meals were excellent, and the flight itself was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight was rebooked without notification leaving us sitting apart for a 12 hour flight to Japan. This left us with one option of an unexpectedly upgrade in order to sit next to each other"
Cons: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Always on time!"
Cons: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "excellent food,comfortable, easy check in process"
Cons: "my bag was deemed not carry onable by staff but I had checked to make sure measurements met carry on criteria"
Pros: "We left on time, we arrived early. The crew was very polite and helpful. The food was decent on board and the seats were comfy."
Cons: "I wish they flew all over the USA, American carriers should be ashamed"

Worst flight experience

Its okay

Great flight

It was good

The flight was great. As far as the food is concerned it would be great to get little things like salt, pepper a small cube of butter (when bread is provided) with the meal.

I request for vegetarian food but they are asking me what kind of food you want. Service is slow.

The worst people to deal with in gatar airport after I miss my flight they plam me and 5 people with me after the air plain delayed us from making to the next flight to the people off gater the forner the one you hiar to run the airport they do more damage don’t fly with gatar airlines

Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"
Pros: "Crew were so much helpful, really appreciate, my wife got sick, they have been amazing"
Cons: "Seats be little spacious"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "coffee is to strong and to many spicy foods"
Pros: "Seat more comfortable ."
Cons: "there is need to improve food & entertainment section."
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "seats were awesome, so as the food and the occasional snacks were delightful"
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't working, but since I got a window seat I didn't complain. Long time for a 12 h flight without video or something to occupy myself, but at least the USB port was working..."
Cons: "The 14 hour flight lacked wifi access and there was no sense of importance to investigate by the crew. In an era when downtime is utilized to stay ahead of work, strong wifi is one of the most crucial requirements for me to elect an airline. Even if all else is good, poor wifi is a deal killer."
Pros: "The service was super and the food was delicious even the seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was super"
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Excellent crew and food."
Cons: "No WiFi."
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."
Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."
Pros: "We loved everything. From the moment we walked into the plane we were blown away. Food, air hostesses,flight, you name it was great."
Cons: "We didn't like that our return flight was changed to a different airline. Cathay Pacific. My wife didn't like the service at all and keep complaining and comparing it to Qatar."
Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meals needs some improvement. Lack of Africans as part of the crew."
Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "Food was mediocre in options and taste. Not the most comfortable flight either. The Manila to Doha leg was much less comfortable than the Doha Philly leg."
Pros: "I liked how kind and attentive the staff were."
Cons: "The connection in Doha was a pain...one has to one end of the airport to the other...go through security and then come ALL THE WAY BACK! UGH!"
Pros: "I liked everything from A to Z! the aircraft was spacious and new. The staff were very friendly and cooperative and attentive. the seat was comfortable and entertainment system was great!"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "The trays of water could come around more frequently"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Quite journey"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Cons: "We could not watch anything as my wife and my screen did not work."
Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"
Pros: "Great airline with spanking new plans and top of the line service"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "My daughter gets airsick and one of the staff in particular was so helpful unlike some other airline"
Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."
Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."
Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."
Cons: "Expect more then OK from Qatar."
Pros: "the best air line I've ever been"
Pros: "Quality, professional service, beautiful smiles."
Cons: "WiFi connection.."
Cons: "Need a better food choice"
Cons: "If I had gotten the seats I picked."
Cons: "I’m sure you do the best you can."
Pros: "Entertainment choices good"
Cons: "Worst food offerings. Not enough food offerings for 10 hour plus flight. Poor entree quality for international flight."
Pros: "Everything was great, easy going, aloha way."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "First time I flew with Hawaiian and it was the best service ever! Oakland to final destination Lihue. Definitely my number one airline and will be referring folks!"
Pros: "The crew was great. Super apologetic for the terrible delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours and 2 of those hours we spent on the plane before they deplaned us because they couldn't hold us any longer. One day of my 4 day vacation was completely ruined"
Pros: "The breakfast on the way to Honolulu and the lunch on the way back to the mainland. The food was very tasty and made the long flight seem shorter."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Nothing negative to say. It’s a flight with 100+ passengers and people want to be babied. Enjoy your time and quit complaining about things out of an Airlines control and your crappy planning."
Pros: "I had a great flight with Hawaiian. Food was great Movies were ok- I slept mostly Staff were friendly & polite I would always fly with them to Hawaii"
Pros: "It was nice to get a small meal on the 6hour flight as well as a complimentary drink for all"
Cons: "This was by far one of the oldest planes I have been on in several years. Gawain is known for their entertainment, but this planes had only shared screens and our radio/sound was not working including the lights and call buttons. Upon reporting this to a flight attendant, I was told they would return to work on it, but it wasn't until I reported it again that another attendant worked with us to (unsuccessfully) attempt to restart the system. In the end we just had no entertainment for the flight."
Pros: "Service on board plane was good."
Cons: "Too warm in the plane. Not the greatest thing with a full flight and lots of body heat!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was friendly f"
Pros: "Beverages and water, Snacks and a meal (with an adult beverage) All for FREE"
Cons: "I noticed one ladies chair in the front, her monitor wasn't holding up correctly."
Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "The boarding was not organize."
Pros: "Crew were nice. Big plane with lots of overhead storage was helpful."
Cons: "Picked my seats online when I booked and was told I didn't have reserved seats during check in. Had to get seats assigned last minute over the phone (very last row), and the customer service experience on the phone was awful."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Update to inflight services, a little outdated and would like to see more selection."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats EVER! REALLY BAD!"
Pros: "Small in flight meal. So convenient and yummy"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "I appreciated the free meal and the free mai tai since not that many companies offer free meals to customers anymore."
Cons: "The crew lacked an "aloha spirit." We were excited to go to hawaii but the crew didnt seem friendly. When I asked if I could pass thru their area to get to the bathroom on the other aisle, I think I saw the stewardess roll her eyes as she got up out of her chair. It couldve been because it was the 0700 flight. Older plane. Its one with one big screen in the middle and tiny little screens scattered throughout. Didnt show a movie - instead showed clips of hawaiian singers. Chairs were rickety and hard to lay back or put forward."
Cons: "Nothing!! They were top notch in my book!!!"
Pros: "I booked late, but I got a seat pretty close to the one I chose, and they made sure I got an aisle, like I specified. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum punch (if you're 21+) and I love this drink! Sweet and satisfying. I believe they do this on all their flights."
Cons: "This didn't affect me personally, but you do have to pay $15 extra to use their entertainment system. I'm glad I downloaded a movie and some tv shows to my tablet before going."
Pros: "Crew was really nice and the service was great. Food was better than what you could quickly grab at the airport and appreciated the frequent beverage service."
Cons: "It seemed unecessarily cold and was a little surprised that entertainment cost extra on a long flight. The only thing complimentary were a few promo videos for Hawaii and the radio."
Cons: "Once we got to the airport we lost all assigned seating. Not good."
Pros: "Loved stepping into the cabin with Hawwain music playing on the entertainment system. Crew was super nice. Seats were comfortable even in economy class."
Cons: "Paltry complimentary selections on entertainment system. Should offer free TV/movies in addition to premium. And when you did slide you're card for a premium movie, the first thing I saw was an advertisement!"
Cons: "Their claim to be the only airline still serving a meal is very "thin". We got a tiny cup of fruit and a biscuit with a piece of cheese melted on it. That was tasteless and very hard to eat. The one cup of juice (that was mostly ice) was barely enough to wash it down. Also, my disabled wife was not allowed to have the bulkhead seat because it had previously been assigned to a completely healthy child and mother. there should be some kind of priority system for those seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight, clean aircraft"
Cons: "Poor attitude of male flight attendant, came across as not really caring about the needs of passengers, plane was dated - could not look at snack menu on touch screen, no duty free items or catalog despite being advertised."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the trip was smooth"
Cons: "Food-poor. A plastic bag handed in your lap with 1/2 turkey on white and 1/2 Egg salad sandwich on stale wheat bread! It's so far from the service Hawaiian used to provide that it ruins the reputation more than helps it. Why bother? It's obvious that it's only a half hearted attempt at best. Asked for a better seat n got the seat next to the restroom. It was literally 5 1/2 hours on a flying toilet with people constantly in and out the whole trip. I should at least been warned."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 17 hours"
Pros: "Our flight was on time. The staff was very friendly. Everything was clean. We were served a complimentary meal as well as drinks and a snack. (So few airlines include a meal nowadays.) Pleasant in every way!"
Pros: "Staff was very nice. plane was clean. We left on time."
Cons: "Tv was broke for my seat. All they offered was a different seat away from my wife and son."
Pros: "There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name."
Cons: "The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this"
Cons: "We boarded a hot plane. The A/C was turned on then we smelled kerosene. We de-boarded and sat - the gate crew were fine but really didn't know what was going on. After repeated erroneous emails from HAL, the flight was actually scrubbed until HAL could get a crew and plane from Honolulu. The emails actually gave us new departure times that had already passed!) Thanks to some terrific work by the HAL gate crew, we were able to get seats on an Alaska flight. Five hours later than our original schedule but much better than our HAL schedule which finally left 7+ hours after schedule."
Pros: "TSA was fast and efficient coming back, the crew was friendly and helpful, and the food was fine both ways. Also, while coming back, pre-boarding was kind of an enjoyable process for once, as one of the staff was very lively and made a lot of jokes."
Cons: "Had delayed flight, due to some back-up part that was being faulty. Everyone had just finished getting on the plane at this point, and the Captain said it'd be fixed in under an hour, so those who wanted to leave or stay on the plane, could leave or stay. However, for some reason, everyone (+all our baggage) had to get off the plane about 15 after minutes after this announcement, and the flight ended up being delayed by ~2-2.5 hours. There was no compensation."
Cons: "Food and food service was poor. A passenger in first class should never have to ask for something and attendants should not spend most of the flight holed up up front reading and talking. Movie selection for a frequent traveler is really bad"
Pros: "Easy check in, affordable seat upgrades and excellent service and attention to detail. If the price is right, I will always fly Hawaiian to Hawaii or to California"
Pros: "Some staff were pretty rude and it was on both flights, which was surprising."
Pros: "One small meal in 11 hours and no snacks offered. No bread rolls with the meal Everyone was hungry"
Cons: "Didn't see seat assignments during check in. Hawaiian airline agent at the gate was super rude when I asked to get seat assignments for my family."
Pros: "Friendly service x"
Cons: "There were no blankets supplied so I would have packed one. Seats are uncomfortable Otherwise all was good"
Cons: "Was not informed of a flight delay, representative at the gate was very unfriendly, seat was changed and was told choosing a seat online was only a courtesy, could not rent entertainment on the aircraft but was never told it had to be done at the gate, airplane seat did not recline. The worst flight I have been on in a long time."
Pros: "staff were great and friendly and helpful"
Cons: "not a big deal but 2 things: 1) plane was a bit dirty in between the seats. 2) we also were in the terminal but getting food when we heard our names on the overhead pager saying they were going to close the gate in 5 minutes and if we didn't get on we'd be left behind. That was 30 minutes before take off that they were going to close the gate. We rushed over and ended up boarding and then waiting on the plane forever. not sure whey they need to get everyone on so early. I guess i'm used to flying southwest airlines where they let people run up 5 minutes before they close the gates."
Pros: "Good schedule for snacks and lunch, staff really nice and efficient"
Cons: "A/C was not working correctly so we were all freezing."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. But it was great to at least be offered something and the chips were awesome"
Cons: "More food Free headsets"
Pros: "Air hostesses were nice. Entertainment was good"
Cons: "I only had 50min layover. I tried to get wiki shuttle from gate 6 to 26 but I waited for ever so ended up running to gate 26, boy I almost died. I was the last one to board. Of course I couldn't change my seat to aisle because everyone boarded already. Food was horrible, it was cabbage and chicken. Drinks(juice) were small, like shots. I always request aisle for various reasons, I like to get up and walk around because this is my 4th leg of my trip. To top my horrible experience with, my bags didn't make it from my SFO flight to Sydney flight. I wasted time waiting and looking around for my bags and standing in line for missing/lost bags. I arrived here on Sunday and it's now Wednesday morning and I still haven't received my bags yet. Hawaiian better pay me money for the inconvenience or air b points. To be honest this will be my last time flying with Hawaiian, I thought it was just rumors that they are ones of the worst. Hawaiian makes Jetstar looks like a 5 star airline. I'm a frequent flyer and I have flown just about every airlines out there."
Pros: "Very nice and professional staff."

Cons: "Bathroom floors could be better."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment"
Cons: "Tried to select my seat 2 weeks out from flight. Was told by multiple delta employees I can only change at the gate. Was unable to change seat and ended up getting downgraded to middle seat middle row. Rude flight staff that barked at the passengers"

Cons: "More food choices, but what we had was good."
Pros: "Crew attentive and helpful"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Crew was exellent"
Cons: "The food quality needs to improve."
Pros: "Although the take off was delayed (having nothing to do with the crew or airplane or LAX), we arrived right on time. Good food. Great in flight entertainment. I appreciated the low lighting levels while we were trying to sleep/rest."
Cons: "The plane needs more bathrooms."
Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at LAX and even though we made it to the gate to fly out on our connecting flight they had given our tickets away and booked us on a flight 5 hrs later. They told us our bags would be transferred. They werent and now both my daughter and i are starting out a dream vacation with no l"

Pros: "spacious comfortable seats"
Cons: "I waited in line at Virgin Australia for 35 minutes only to be told that I was actually on a Delta flight even though my itinerary said Virgin Australia. good thing I was early to airport or I would of missed my flight because I had to go find Delta check in"

Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"
Pros: "adjustable head rest is great - being given a pillow is great - the plane was not too cold to sleep either (as they often are)"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"
Pros: "nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival"
Cons: "I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "Requested a special meal over the phone when I checked in i.e. 24 hours before talk off, customer support confirmed my request but the crew told me that they had not received anything as such....crew didn't even bothered to offer any alternative. I was fine, didn't have any reservations but my wife and kid went starving all the way remember it was a 15 hour flight"
Cons: "Hospitality"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were lovely, boarding wasn't too painful."
Cons: "Payed extra for a seat that was the seat I selected. Totally disappointed"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "long wait and delayed flight"
Pros: "Crew was stellar, very accommodating."
Cons: "Food was WAAAAY to salty. Needs some more flavor than just salt sad to say. Would be nice to be offered an entire can of soda not just a cup full of ice and a tiny amount of liquid. Charging for exit row swats? Cmon.... I'm 6 foot 5, why should a 5 foot 115lb woman get all the extra leg room but I canot?"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "We travelled Economy comfort which has extra leg room & recline, which is great for a long flight such as this. Food was ok, crew were great & there was a lot of good entertainment to watch? A nice smooth ride down to Sydney."
Cons: "Food wasn't so great & coffee as with most Airlines is terrible."
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Pros: "Flight itself was mostly fine. Adequate overhead space. Boarding process ok."
Cons: "Adequate legroom but seat space so tight could not even reach things dropped on the floor. Seats are HARD! Some USB sockets didn't work. Entertainment system is old and clunky, often didn't respond to touches. Crew was grudgingly OK, didn't seem to want to be there to help. Food was a disaster. Special meals were all wrong. Food brought was mostly terrible."
Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."
Pros: "Ability to change planes with a 30 minute layover."
Cons: "Reasonable price"
Pros: "The Crew, very nice."
Cons: "Delta air had delayed flight which made my family and I miss our flight in Sydney to Cairns."
