Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Cons: "No AC"
Pros: "Quick efficient boarding. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."
Pros: "The crew, the flight, the pilot to cabin communications, the food, USB hookup, and the movie selection was amazing. I am so happy that I flew Japan Airlines on my return trip. I would highly recommend them for your international travels."

Pros: "Excellent food. Lots of food, drinks. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "more movie options!"
Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."
Cons: "Food, especially before landing"
Pros: "The majority of the crew had facials that made me feel like I shouldn't talk to them. The food wasn't the best but that was expected. There was movies and shows that kept me entertained for a while. Seats are normal couldn't walk or get up often because of turbulence."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "service is great!"
Pros: "When I checked in for my connecting flight from Tokyo Narita to New York, the crew said there was no more seat on economy class. She was making sure that I got on the plane by placing me on the premium economy seat. I appreciate the effort and the courtesy of JAL."
Cons: "The meal and dessert were served at the same time. Too much food all at once."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and crew was nice and polite."

Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
Pros: "The seat have enough legs room,I'm 181cm usually feel uncomfortable when I take airplane to somewhere, however Japan Airline offer really good service and comfortable seat."
Pros: "New aircraft and diligent crew; the food was frequent and tasted great. No complaints; would gladly fly JAL any time, anywhere."
Cons: "returnning flight was not attended well,so much different from going flight. Going was excellent but returnning was not nice in all face."
Pros: "Once I made it through the long line at check in everything went very well. Check in was a bit of a nightmare since Air Busan is shared with Asiana Airlines."
Cons: "I had to stand in line at both Asiana and Air Busan to check in. Made checking in a lot longer than normal."
Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."
Pros: "I always find the service on Japan Airline to be excellent. What I really liked, and didn't expect, was that there was individual inflight entertainment systems. Most other carriers on short flights out of Busan don't have that available, so it was a nice option. The meals were excellent!"
Cons: "Food was below standard."

Pros: "Clean plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Complementary snack to go with free beverage."
Pros: "The seat was great."

Cons: "We didn't know the meal schedule. We thought the half a sandwich at dinner time was dinner, but then a full meal came out a couple hours later. :) Nice surprise though!"
Pros: "ANA crew is very hospitable."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Although flight was delayed slightly with boarding, flight crew maintained same flight time, thus not adding any further delays."

Pros: "The plane was very clean. Staff was very polite and helpful. Foodoffering was very good."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye. Also I will be happy to fly ANA again, but I would not take a redeye flight on any airline unless I was in business or first class which I cannot reasonably afford at the moment."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and the food was also good"
Cons: "You should add some veg dishes"
Pros: "For such a long trip, it was pretty comfortable. The flight crew was friendly and helpful and the food was good"
Pros: "Food, crew, and entertainment were great. They give you snacks and drinks right away."
Cons: "Elbow room is tight so pray you don't sit next to someone on the larger side. And the seats and tables look well used."
Cons: "Someone sat on my row without notifying the crew of the seat change. After I notified the FA of the incident... even if it's a general rule that the passenger sits at the ticketed seat, the FA didn't do anything about it"
Cons: "Seats seem extra small, narrow and short. As a window seat there was very little room between the seat and the wall. Food and entertainment average to below average (compared with Qantas, Singapore Airlines)"
Pros: "Good service and not too long of a wait to board the plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd. I felt like it was supposed to be gourmet, but just came off strange. I was wishing for something more straightforward."
Pros: "Always happy to fly ANA but wish I cold fly direct from Vancouver to Okinawa. and return. Kansai? I fly there three time a year."
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that mostly everyone is bilingual there. It helped tremendously because I don't know Japanese."
Pros: "flight attendant in business not as nice as sfo to narita"
Pros: "My Marine son and I traveled ANA from Okinawa to Hiroshima. We had to be bussed out to our plane but it was so worth it because we were on a Star Wars plane."
Cons: "My son and I had made separate reservations and they lost his. however he was able to get on the flight and they sat us together."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
Pros: "The staff were polite and highly professional. It was an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "We kept delaying our flight half hour to 45 minutes at a time from 5 o'clock in the evening to one in the morning and then they canceled the flight at one in the morning after sitting there all day"
Pros: "Unexpectedly upgraded to business class - fantastic way to start a business trip... Food was amazing, and the seats and legroom are of course paradise compared with economy class - thanks ANA!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."
Pros: "Very nice and pleasant staff"
Pros: "Flight crew were amazing! Very hospitable and attentive."
Cons: "WiFi was not very good. Connection was very slow and they charge $20 per 100 MB used (instead of one flat fee)."
Cons: "can't think of any.!"
Pros: "Everyone crew members was very friendly and helpful. I"
Pros: "ANA has always done a fantastic job, mfrom customer service to the food to checking you in."
Pros: "Excellent food and service"
Pros: "Check in was easy and staff and crew were very polite."
Cons: "Headphones didn't work well. We had pre-ordered a child meal 24 hours in advance but did not receive it."
Pros: "I liked the crew both on the ground and in the plane. They were friendly, responsive, and skilled. I liked the seat which was comfortable. I liked the quilt and pillow for sleeping."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I can say I didn't like. The movie selection could have been better. The video or TV lacked high-end shows - HBO etc. The headphones could do a better job of blocking out background noise."
Pros: "I liked that they feed us good food, and we were feed several times. We were also offered several drinks, and all the flight attendants were extremely nice. We would fly Ana airways all the time if given the chance. Seats were very comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "I liked everything, everything was excellent"
Pros: "Time no delayed, Crew very nice, Nice and clean aircraft."
Cons: "No ice cream serve on board"
Pros: "Fell asleep"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"

Cons: "I like how you are now."
Cons: "Flight status"
Pros: "This was the best plane I’ve ever been on. 737-800"
Pros: "Short flight. Great helpers with my mom!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 2 hours because of a reported maintenance issue with the aircraft but was originally delayed because of not having flight attendants available. When the flight attendants did finally arrive they all had an attitude of wishing to be anywhere but on this flight. The lead flight attendant even got into a verbal altercation with the gate agent demanding help getting people's bags into the overhead compartment because she was "injured" & not supposed to be at work. All in all a quite dissatisfying experience but not an uncommon one with this airline & this airport. I will use both only when I have absolutely no other options."
Pros: "Apologetic crew"
Cons: "Massively delayed with no compensation"
Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Food and service was very good."
Cons: "Relocating us to vacant seats so that we weren't crammed all together."
Pros: "Good flight good crew"
Cons: "Hated the connection from terminal 5 to terminal 3 we should not have to go through the departure lounge this added 10 mins or more into a very tight connection."
Cons: "Horrible food"
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing"
Cons: "Paying for upgrade seats that was tight"
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
Pros: "Better space between the sits and the crew were nicer than prior fly with AA"
Cons: "Need better food"
Cons: "Entirely too crowded."
Cons: "Least favorite leg of the trip. The seats were super tight with very little room. The crew was the least friendly I have met. The food was the least pleasing I have ever had."
Pros: "Finnair uses the American Airlines flight for this destination. Non-stop flight Raleigh to Heathrow (round trip).. Fantastic, on time and comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "It would have been easier to book our seat assignments if Fdfinnair had directed us to contact American Airlines directly to get seat assignments. Could not pre-select through Finnair. If you did not want the meat meal the vegetarian meals on both flights included mushrooms...not into fungi."
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "No complaints at all. Comfortable and on time."
Pros: "More clarification pre purchasing of extra bag fees"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "FLIght delayed"
Cons: "Plane not ready to go because of missing trash bags"
Pros: "Good flight. Fairly comfortable flight. Attendants Were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The movie was mediocre. Biscuit cookie was tasteless. Would prefer peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "Flt on time. Arrived on time"
Cons: "A young child screemed constantly. Not sure how you would address. Have had kids so been there"
Cons: "Too little room for legs and cabin was colder than usual."
Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Cheap seat had leg room"
Pros: "Always delayed. Always check my carry on. Which equals me being late to where I'm going."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, pretty good food and films."
Cons: "Significant departure delay, contradictory information from initial airport check in to gate staff, beverage selection is okay but prices for more than the basics are astronomical."
Pros: "Crew was the best."
Cons: "Boarding order does not make sense. Go back to the traditional system of boarding; last rows go first."
Pros: "The crew were friendly. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "They squeezed me into a new plane after saying there was absolutely no way for me to get home... hmm."
Pros: "Great movie selection, including ones currently in theaters."
Cons: "Only received pretzels for snacks, while others received cookies."
Pros: "I was able to fall asleep and we didn't have to wait at the dock very long. Arrived on time and no delays."
Cons: "They flight attendant I had who took my drink order seemed distracted and basically threw my pretzels down on my tray table."
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding is typical disorderly. Seating us getting smaller."
