The JAL staff were all great at SFO and Haneda. I highly recommend JAL. I know I will be looking out for future flights with JAL. The food was very good as well as the snacks they prepared. Entertainment ok, the movie selection was ok. If JAL could add usbc charging that would be great. Also Bluetooth connectivity to the entertainment system would awesome. The headset connectivity was not great. High pitched noise came out if the headset. I did have trouble contacting JAL support while in Japan. I needed information about Covid testing for my return to the US. Basically no one picked up the phone. I ended up paying a lot of money for Covid testing when I could have paid less if I could have confirmed some information over the phone. Hopefully the US stops requiring Covid testing for entering the US or cheaper options become available. $160 x 4 was no fun!!
Same thing about the seats. Why can I select seats and then those choices not be honored?
Flight was delayed. Food is not good. Crew are confuse and it’s not Japan airlines that I know of.
I like the services, food on board is very good too.
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the plane was empty so could move for comfort"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the airplane was empty, but assigned seats to fill rows while spouting nonsense about social distancing"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Just excellent. Excellent crew, excellent food, excellent aircraft, and excellent leg room. No recommendations."
Pros: "Simple check in and boarding, right on time."
Pros: "Great service for economy. Very attentive flight attendants."
Cons: "Had serious and consistent blockage to receive seat assignment from AAirlines. Round trip ticket with JAL but they code shared lax to tokyo with AA. Later AA refused to let me change THEIR seat assignment (3 scattered middle seats in economy). unless I bought an upgrade. They also said tic"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "Nothing! Excellent flight!"

Pros: "Kind and courteous staff"
Cons: "A family with 2 kids making noisy and crying nonstop during the flight the father was playing Japanese video games with headphones on and very careless but once in a wile started yelling at Kiks because they distracted him from his entertainment. Grandma next to them was careless too,mother left the kids to father and was sitting 2 rows in the back and they never came at least to try to make them quiet even when the kids started to kik everywhere licluding the food tray and almost breaks it. Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Cons: "no 1st class offered. I wanted to use my system wide upgrade but can't get a flight that offers 1st class anymore"

Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the view from the window was stunning."

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: "I was very impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of the pilots and crew. Staff were very helpful and polite. A very good experience overall."
Cons: "The stewardess making announcements overhead on the PA system speak very softly and can be very difficult to hear and understand in addition to their accent. I know the safety cards are available for that info but the "in-flight" announcements are the ones that I worry I'm missing important information due to my misunderstanding."
Pros: "Simply excellent !!!"
Pros: "Japan Airlines still provides all the services to make for a comfortable journey. The airline staff are excellent, the food is good and there are no bag fees."
Cons: "I did not like that we could not book our seats until 72h before departure."
Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment options. Great food and plenty of it. Service was top notch. No complaints."
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: "I was early to check in . But the check in was slow and I. Had to run to my plane ride .. and had no time to shop"
Cons: "The service was so so and food was lousy"
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."
Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."
Pros: "The food and plum wine. The entertainment packet was nice too!"
Cons: "The folks coughing on the plane."
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "JAL ' service is nice."
Cons: "I didn't like MSG in food."
Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"
Cons: "the only thing was this flight was delayed and we missed the flight at LAX, but JAL reserved a hotel room near by for us so that we were able to refresh ourselves and relax till the next flight. thank you JAL!"
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "Good flight! Confirtable seats, polite crew."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Even with the unusual dislikes on this particular trip I would fly again on JAL. I would give this trip a 9.4 / 10."
Cons: "Checking in 48 hrs in advance with no aisles or windows seats for selection. Being stuck in the middle seat 26F for 9 hours. Discovered in LAX that my luggage tags were improperly tagged in TPE. I had someone else's luggage tags on my bags going From TPE to KIX to LAX to Houston instead TPE - KIX- LAX- Austin."
Cons: "slow service, inconsistent, they skipped my row for service???"

Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Cons: "The business lounge in honolulu"
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"
Cons: "Seats could be better"
Pros: "service from crew"
Cons: "chaotic boarding process/queue. connecting flight gate is quite a walk from 1 terminal to another (went down 3 floors of escalator ride and a distance tunnel walk - on a tight connection time (after a delayed departure/arrival)."

Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Stuck in middle seat between 2 teenagers & reading light on top was on next to me the whole flight from Haneda to Los Angeles."
Pros: "I like the courteous and efficient service of the whole crew."
Cons: "I didn't like part of the journey to USA to be run by UNITED."
Pros: "I like the food, service, and punctuality."
Cons: "Nothing I do not like"
Pros: "The large windows on the 787 are really a big plus for someone like me who likes to look out the window. To have the added ability to dim the window progressively is just too cool. Even if the sun is bright, you can still look out and enjoy the view. I love this feature of the 787 and am always a little disappointed when I'm back in any other aircraft."
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)"
Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"
Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardess"

Pros: "Smooth operations, friendly crew, clean plane, free booze in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing really when flying coach. Second meal now like a box lunch instead of full meal. Cost cutting I guess. Seats are small but not as bad as United domestic. No major complaints."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Bumpy ride and no info of what was going on. A passenger next to me took his pants off and was sitting with his underwear. He did put a blanket after. Very annoying!"

Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Delayed by 3 hours!!"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Pros: "I love everything and I will flight with them again . A very positive experience."
Pros: "my flight didn't come, it was cancelled and still, I'm struggling to book or find alternate solutions."

Pros: "No issues with flight times or boarding, flight crew were very nice and accomodating, plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "My pre-selected meal choice was not always followed through with. I requested a vegan meal from their choices and, as is often the case, was provided with meals that included dairy products, which I can not eat."
Pros: "Check-in , immigration and security experience at Dubai was very efficient via the business class terminal."
Cons: "Old business class arrangement for this route seems very outdated conpared compared to the newer fleet; was not worth the extra upgrade fee."
Pros: "Entertainment and space were great. Lots of options."
Cons: "Crew seemed as tired as I did. The food could have been better for the price."
Pros: "Our seats & the crew."
Cons: "Food was ok & entertainment was ok but not great."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough, take-off was roughly on time, and the flight as a whole was a bit faster than predicted. Friendly flight attendants. Plenty of entertainment options (movies, TV, music). AC outlet on seatback made it possible to charge devices in-flight."
Cons: "Food was so-so, and not particularly healthy and loaded with carbs (e.g. potatoes plus crackers plus pasta salad plus very sweet desserts), but overall somewhat typical for air flights in my experience. Seat pitch (aka leg room) was basically adequate for me (6' 4"), but not great. Touch screens on entertainment system on both outbound and return flights were a little wonky -- needed re-calibration, so it was impossible to activate virtual buttons near the edges of the screen."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
Cons: "I didn't like the food after I hate the fish with rice I got sick sweating cold!!terrible experience!!"

Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"
Pros: "Stuff and everything else was just magnificent. If you have opportunity don't miss this company"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect. Specially stuff"
Pros: "they serve and ask what it needs to like with smile; thanks for all of anyways."
Pros: "Very courteous flight attendants. I liked the fact that they came from several countries and looked like a strong, united team. I also enjoyed the great selection of movies, music, news, and TV shows. The space between the chairs is more generous than other airlines I used in the past."
Cons: "There was a long line for boarding in Entebbe and very few staff attending the process. I did not have access to online checking, although I received the message that I can do it online. Horrible scramble eggs. I could not eat it."
Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."
Pros: "good food, empty seats for snoozing and very helpful flight crew."
Pros: "I love the wide variety of beverages. I also enjoyed how many times they passed through the cabin to offer us drinks."
Cons: "I have been on the newer planes and the TV functionality is great. However, the older versions have poor quality TVs with horrible functionality. The touch screen does not respond to your finger and sometimes you can't even get the remote to work. They definitely need to update the technology on all planes."
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."
Pros: "Free meal. Free drinks. Not packed so it was comfortable. Great accomodating staff, they were definately amazing even in economy. Power at every seat to charge devices a great list of movies shows etc... food was great tasting and good portion. I enjoyed this flight more than american, delta or any of the big name companies. They should strive to be this good."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "The service that Emirates provided."
Hawaiian Airlines used to serve pretty decent airplane food but they’ve lost it. Some kind of soggy Stuffed warm bagel with who knows what inside, mushy and indistinguishable. Just awful! And WiFi did not work well and entertainment selections poor-most adventure/violence. Very disappointed.
Pros: "The crew was kind and friendly"
Cons: "Cushions could have been better. Butt got sore"
Pros: "The crew was very lovely in flight, the ground crew in Portland did as well as they could under the circumstances"
Cons: "I arrived an hour before my flight- after boarding began they closed the doors to reboot the engines and try and "fix" a problem with the landing gear. The flight kept being delayed with no explanation of whether or not it would even fly. We were told missed connections would be dealt with but they weren't. It ended up two hours late, had I known I would have gone to eat somewhere and avoided the terrible egg mushroom thing served on the flight. After landing , many were left with no idea how to get to their destinations and no recourse. The crew was great in the flight, though. Whoever maintains your aircraft should make sure problematic aircraft not be used to transport tens of thousands of your dollars. Very disappointing, considering this was my first flight with Hawaiian, I had heard they were the best. Noteworthy though, that my trip TO Portland with your airline was top notch. The return, however , leaves me with a bad taste and I don't think I will choose it again"
Pros: "Crew was good, seats were decent."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying Hawaiian to Hawaii since the experience starts on the plane. And their kind service helps lots. The pilot was good also, with extremely smooth take off and landing and alerting to turbulence."
Cons: "Very little to my thinking"
Pros: "Early departure early arrival"
Cons: "Food options, more prompt service,"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly. Meals were delicious. Options for entertainment was AWESOME"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Pros: "I loved the headrests that could bend so it cushioned your head while you were sleeping. I also loved the tablet/ phone holder on the bs k of the seat."
Cons: "The breakfast sandwich wasn’t the best."
Cons: "Honestly, you used to get a pillow and blanket. Now you get nothing. I know it's probably something that will never come back, but it's a nice touch. Otherwise, really satisfied with the flight experience."
Cons: "Entertainment for a 6 hour flight would've made sense."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were comfy. Flight was overall very pleasant!"
Cons: "First time landed at gate E in terminal 1. Proceeded through terminal and down to baggage claim. Went down and found no baggage anywhere. No flight on arrivals board and had to go to terminal 2! Agents said the state doesn't allow Hwn to list the portland flight? Please have signage clear."
Pros: "Good complimentary cocktail"
Cons: "Delay leaving and delay to get fate after landing slowed things down."
Pros: "Short, quick but still excellently-served flight."
Pros: "The crew was great ."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for our luggage at the baggage claim. If it was gonna take that long, a staff member should of had the courtesy to apologize for the delay and gave us an update ."
Cons: "Nothing I did not like, all went well."
Pros: "Crew. Space. Food."
Pros: "Customer service took some time but LAURIE KOMEIJI was so patient and accommodating to assist an extra mile to re-do our tickets...party of six. We did online reservations which was messed up and able to fix evetything. Please recognize her. Thank you"

Cons: "No USB charger"
Pros: "The complimentary guava rum punch was amazing! The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Comfortably equipped planes!"

Cons: "boarding process was a bit slow in Maui, but not a deal killer."
Pros: "Professional customer service!!!"
Pros: "Individual seat-back screens"
Pros: "The crew and boarding process."
Cons: "No available entertainment/WiFi besides purchasing it"
Pros: "the breakfast was good and the crew were very nice"
Cons: "The free entertainment choices were terrible"
Pros: "Generally friendly crew, seatback video entertainment and usb at every seat is nice, but it’s essentially $6 per seat to watch anything."
Cons: "$50 overweight bag charge knowing everyone is going to be bringing more home from Hawaii than they left with. “Meal service” is a single microwaved sandwich in a bag with no options available. Coach is incredibly dense with minimal recline. Our flight sat roasting at the gate w difficulty starting the engines for an hour and only a verbal apology given - if you’re going to nickle and dime the customer, be prepared to make amends when things don’t go well."
Pros: "Fantastic in comparison to the many I have flown. Service was great, up graded economic seats had plenty of room and were fairly comfortable. Nice big plane. I did feel swished in like a sardine."
Pros: "New plane, friendly, congenial staff. Prompt service."
Cons: "Wifi service didn't work. Leg room between seats is atrocious. For the price we paid & the length of this flights, they can do better than that."
Pros: "Extra comfort seats were nice. Meal was nice."
Cons: "I don’t want to watch ads on the plane. I already bought the darn ticket. Don’t make me watch ads."
Cons: "need to pay for each movie not one fee as on many other airlines or free on Alaska airlines food was awful croissant was dry as a desert wind not a single free beer or wine and i paid for the extra leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice, we had free breakfast (yogurt, grapes, granola, and bread), and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The movies they provided on the screen you had to pay $8 each to watch."
Pros: "People were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were worn out and uncomfortable. Entertainment was expensive."
Pros: "I love the comfort of the Airbus. It is much better than the old HA planes the last time I flew Hawaiian."
Cons: "I think the movie prices are way too much. A lot of airlines offer free entertainment."
Pros: "The blanket and inflatable pillow were a home run with my wife and row mates."
Cons: "Rock hard seats and after 6 hours we were done. May need to get fat?"
Pros: "Let me think, food was free. Some of the staff was friendly. Glad was the flight was quick, because I don't think I could deal with that staff anymore than the few interactions I had with them."
Cons: "Lets start with the boarding process. Its not organized and just a huge mess. This zone boarding thing is very old school and no where is there a screen saying which zone is boarding, you have to listen for the quiet announcement and hope you heard it correctly, because they only say it once. When on board, the staff I dealt with was having a bad day or something, because slamming drinks down on tray tables and cups in to a half full cup must be the norm. The passenger next to me mentioned that the staff was very rude to me, as I was pretty passive at the time. The seats are somewhat comfortable, but when the staff tells you not to lean back because the lady behind you doesn't have enough leg room, then whats the point of paying for comfort plus. The food may be free, but if you want some sort of entertainment, TV shows or movies, it isn't free. Everything must be paid for on this flight. You pay a pretty penny to get on these flights only for them to up-sell you on everything! This airline needs some major changes to staff and technology."
Pros: "Got there on time,courteous crew, comfortable seat. Have flown Hawaiian before, will fly Hawaiian again, its always been good."
Pros: "The timing of the meals, the flavorful food and the listening choices. The night goggles were quite helpful."
Cons: "Sitting that long."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the provided food was almost worth paying to not eat it was so bad."
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "It was freezing. Please carry something warm or be ready to shell out $7 for a blanket!"
Pros: "great movie selection well fed"
Cons: "unfriendly crew to locals but they were very friendly to the japanese passengers. we felt ignored. i called for assistant and didnt get answered for 30mins. when she came to assist she didnt even bother listening to my request and assumed i just wanted sprite. i was nauseated and i wanted sprite n crackers but she only came back with sprite after 10mins. overall in short crew member in this flight needs to have their aloha spirit n be friendly not moody!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "My suitcase was sent to wrong airport in Japan"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1+ hour. The ticketing agents were rude when we inquired about re-scheduling a connecting flight. They were not accommodating at all. They required purchase of in-flight movies. Next time I'm flying Alaska, at least the movies are free."
Cons: "Somehow I was not assigned the seat I choose. The flight attendant offered for me to speak with an agent but I stayed in the newly assigned middle seat."
Pros: "I liked the free meals that were served. The extra food I received from the stewardess and fellow passengers. The Hawaiian atmosphere that pervaded the plane. The quiet engines. The nice wide A330 that felt secure crossing the ocean. I would recommend Hawaiian airlines to anybody. I would suggest direct flights from the east coast and midwest."
Cons: "Disappointed that there was no meal on the late evening flight. Only a bag of snacks. Since we got a hot sandwich on the outbound flight from LAX to HNL, we expected something on the return flight!"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and efficient. Always on time and organized."
Cons: "Choice of movies. Too old."
Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "No vegetarian meals! Why?? One flight attendant was not friendly (a Japanese national). I know not every one has a good day, but she could have been a little nicer to the passengers. Thank you."
Pros: "The gate attendants in Portland were very helpful and friendly, and the air crew were very accommodating on the flight"
Cons: "I was expecting something a little more traditional Hawaiian for my meal, or at least an option for something more traditional. For the entertainment, it would be nice to have a chess or card game free of charge. Seriously, does EVERYTHING have to be "pay to play"?"
I booked this through Travelgenio and requested a cancellation due to COVID related impact. Their customer service was absolutely terrible and they informed me after the flight had departed that they could not cancel my ticket. Worst experience, will never use them again. Strongly reconsidering using Kayak in future given how poor the travelgenio experience has been.
Pros: "This flight left nearly an hour late, which at 1 AM really hurts. The crew were ok, but the flight seemed understaffed, and our service in premium economy was pretty ordinary."
Cons: "Total gong show getting to our connecting flight in HK, but Cathay Pacific got us there with only seconds to spare."
Cons: "The crew should be more kind."
Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."
Cons: "I found my pillowcase has a long human hair. And noticed the same in the other pillows around my seat. Also, the tray table has a few spots of food stain. One of the toilets, the hinge of the toilet seat is broken"
Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"
Pros: "Innovative seating arrangements in business. Service was good."
Cons: "Comfort of seats and laying position are ok, a bit hard for 15 hours."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff."
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours. Checked bags took over an hour to reach the claim area (not sure whose fault this was, airline or airport)."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"
Pros: "Crew were outstanding and food was awesome"
Pros: "Smooth, uneventful travel all was well."
Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Pros: "The crew was totally professional, the food was good, but the passengers were horrible, which is not Cathay Pacific’s fault."
Cons: "The American films were good but they could be better."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices, but the system itself was awkward and slow to respond."
Cons: "The 777 was tired. Tray tables weren’t clean and it was fitted with seats that did not recline. Most uncomfortable!"
Cons: "I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it. I am extremely pissed off"
Cons: "To cold, no sleep,lake of oxygen,bag very dirty"
Pros: "CX still has good offerings on flights from their home in Hong Kong to other destinations."
Cons: "However, CX for International Regional is, in no way, comparable to their better long-haul routes. That being said, the entire airline has lost its luster like their home country is losing their value with prices going up and value for-the-dollar going down."
Pros: "Flight staff was awesome. They were all so thoughtful and extremely positive. It made a long trip so much more enjoyable!"
Cons: "Nothing! Super pleasant experience"
Cons: "The meals were not as good as on my previous flights"
Cons: "Flight arrived in LA 30 minutes late. Then had to wait another 30 minutes for a gate to open. All in all, the flight arrived 1 hr late which is very inconvenient and annoying. And the crew isn't has friendly. The boarding time in Hong Kong took a very long time"
Pros: "Excellent crew, great food, best steak I have ever had on a plane. Fantastic overall."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Plane was old but clean."
Cons: "General boarding was first come, first served vs by zone or seats."
Pros: "CX starts throwing out some old movies, it's nice to see some vintage from my kid age."
Cons: "How about some new Hollywood release please"
Pros: "TV controls user-friendly. Many choices."
Cons: "Cramped seats, especially when people in front lean back."
Cons: "I did not like paying more than the advertised price for my airline ticket... Straight after clicking the confirmation button , I received a call and was informed that the advertised price had increased by $50. It was still affordable so I agreed to this extra charge. Even after 24hours had past, the flight price had not changed online. I was lied to!"
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment was diverse, blankets were comfortable, and food was good. I think I'll make Cathay Pacific my airline for East Asia US travel."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about it improve. It was an easy, efficient process to get on and off the plain."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew, noticed I woke up and served me breakfast with only 45 mins till landing.. The flight was delayed and the airline had arranged for an escort to quickly get me to my next flight without even asking"
Cons: "The lack of content on the entertainment system, quickly ran out of movies to watch"
Cons: "Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks."
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food sitting position checking in"
Pros: "Great crew. But, they ran out of breakfast choices early."
Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"
Pros: "The food was disgusting. Quality of food served by Cathay Pacific in Economy Class has gone down in the last 3 years!"
Cons: "Entertainment is poor. the quality of the films and TV videos is quite mediocre."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding please setup separate lines for end and front cabin seats. Since everyone where mingled during boarding the flight the aisle was blocked by front cabin passengers loading their cabin languages.. Try boardning end of the cabin passengers first like from seats 60-75 and then front cabin seats."
Pros: "Food was decent, staff was friendly and they wasted no time getting us in the air and off the plane"
Cons: "Not very good seats, no wifi, weak movie selection, the bottled water is like 2 ounces (on a 16 hr flight i had to drink 100 of them), we couldn't pick seats in advance."
Pros: "American pilots"
Pros: "Crew is lovely"
Cons: "My vegetarian food was horrible, terrible drink selection, mediocre entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was a bit of a free-for-all even though they called specific rows. Still, it went fast and everything else was fine. Seats were as comfortable as can be expected for economy. Food was pretty good, entertainment was great and the crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "I have heard that Cathay is one of the best airlines but my experience with Cathay on this flight is not something I can say I agree. I hate United, if I give United a 2 *, I would give Cathay Pacific 3* out of 5. The food served on my HKG - SFO flight was not good. Leg room is good but the seat in front is too close to your face when reclined. Staff and flight attendants are good, but I think ANA is the best in this department."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "The flight was on time, and my luggage made it through the connection."
Cons: "The audio on the TV didn't work, but otherwise, no problem."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in to HK. The restaurant staff (not airline staff) came round offering HK$ 75 to each passenger for a snack. This much appreciated, but I wondered why a restaurant worker was doing this, not airline staff. Being delayed into Osaka, the captain kindly told us that buses were arranged. Good! I thought, until the organization was seen. Ground staff were no where to be seen. Eventually found them huddled at one arrival gate directling passengers to buses. Other passengers at the other arrival gate similarly swirling around without info or help. staff unhelpful, rude, uncaring. SHOCKED by level of incompetence."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours"
