Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Boarding took forever and flight was delayed"
Pros: "Boarding very efficient."
Pros: "We were seated together as a family even though we were not able to reserved any seat"
Cons: "Food could be better. Especially the easily digestible meal. It was mostly mush so it's more easily chew meal"
Cons: "The chairs were just a little uncomfortable, too firm, but everything else made up for it."
Pros: "The Crew was great with kids, and went out of their way to reach out to the boy sitting in the row in front of me."
Cons: "I was running late, and lady that checked me in was accommodating but a little bit standoffish."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Very nice crew."
Cons: "I was unlucky and got the corner rear seat that had no window. Glad it was a short flight!"
Pros: "the Level of service and the Japanese culture was evident at every moment of this flight. Our boarding process was delayed by almost an hour, and it felt like every 5-10 minutes we had an update as to what was going on and why, then passports were checked early, and service was top notch."
Cons: "In my perfect world, we would have updates way in advance if there are mechanical or airport issues but that is a slim to none chance. That is about it. Everything else was amazing!"
Pros: "Seat in biz on 380 was comfortable. Crew good not great."
Cons: "Food terrible. Seat maintenance not good. Armless and remote didn't work properly. Boarding needed work. No biz priority."
Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"
Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."

Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints"
Pros: "Lots of legroom"

Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown."
Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"
Pros: "Excellent service from flight attendants and crew. food and snacks were excellent. seating,movies and experience was above my expectations. no problems at all"
Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."
Pros: "Service was exquisite."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The dinner meal was not what I requested. A roll with breakfast would have helped. The shrimp was good what was under them was not so good. We had to wait tell last minute to sit together."
Pros: "Premium comfort seats are worth it especially on longer flights; totally recommend. Plum wine is a great add to menu"
Cons: "You need to call to reserve seat. Then was told I could only upgrade at the airport and not on the phone, risking to loose the few available premium comfort seats. Old movies. Poor red wine. Food still just okay."
Pros: "No wait at JAL business class checkin.....security and immigration were slow, didn't see a separate line for business class if it existed. Access to Korean lounge, was fairly standard. Crew very friendly once on board. Plenty of good food and drink for a relatively short flight."
Cons: "IFE in armrests,not in back of seat in front. Limited liquor options onboard (just chivas)."
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 travels."
Cons: "My original flight was late and pushed my entire schedule back. I had 15 minutes to deplane and get to my connecting flight. This caused a lot of stress on me however, the Japan airlones Crew escorted me (we ran as fast as we could) to my next flight so that I wouldn’t miss it. I boarded with 1 minute to spare which is way too close for my comfort."
Pros: "Excellent food. Lots of food, drinks. Comfortable plane."
Pros: "JAL is a great airline. Love flying on them. great crew. roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "No major disasters, comfortable seats, on time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours!! No info was given why until we got on the plane. We did not know if the flight was going to get cancelled and if we need to make other arrangements."
Pros: "Quick local Flight. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Food was very good and snacks and drinks were offered frequently. Plenty of entertainment on the in-seat TV consoles. Gave me a pillow and blanket and the seat reclined a bit so I could sleep some. The airline staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing, it was a very positive experience."
Pros: "The flight is on time,service is excellent."
Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
Pros: "The level of service in Business Class was perfect. Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "I thought the food was just so so. However, that's always a matter of personal taste."
Pros: "This was a very long flight, but the crew was fantastic and attentive. The meals were good and they did everything they could to make us comfortable. The flight was on time and convenient."
Cons: "I wish all the seats were like first class. We were in economy class"
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "There was a huge amount of new and classic movies to chose from to pass the time. The crew was friendly and professional. The food was decent. I like the variety of food choices and some of the dishes were delicious (salmon and rice). The seats are pretty comfortable. They aren't great for sleeping in, but the flight was decently quiet and dark for some time. I would recommend bringing a pair of earplugs and a neck pillow."
Cons: "The bread could be better. I would have the bread be softer and warm. A warm croissant as a substitute would be amazing.The butter could be softer (like margarine) so that way it can actually be spread onto the bread."
Pros: "Service was amazing and made me feel like I was in first class."
Cons: "The food wasn't good and the seats seemed outdated relative to other JAL flights I have taken on this route."
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."
Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Crew was outstanding."
Cons: "Very long lines at the security gate at Itami. Difficult web check in."
Pros: "The stewardesses were wonderful-kind, considerate and hardworking. They gave us constant attention offering drinks. I would love to travel with them again!"
Cons: "Nothing- I'd fly with them anytime."
Pros: "On the flight home they upgraded me to business class while apologizing my original economy seat was not available. Amazing. I had a rather unsettled stomach so when the food service came I wasn't hungry. I told the flight attendant, and she brought me some very bland easy to eat food without me even asking. She then checked on me constantly to see how I was feeling, and suggested sparkling water. When I deplaned, she checked one more time with me, if they could do anything. I was feeling much better, and give this airline my highest endorsement."
Cons: "too little legroom seating is designed shorter legged Japanese"
Pros: "Amazingly polite, smiling happy people. Respectful, it actually makes your day to deal with employees like this."
Cons: "Nothing. Was great."
Cons: "Late boarding"
Pros: "This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks."
Cons: "Very slow boarding process in Itami"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."
Cons: "Selecting seats online"
Cons: "This was a much more pleasant flight than I had from DC to Tokyo back on Jan 15"
Pros: "The plane was ghetto and old and there was only one tiny restroom for the entire economy class."
Cons: "A newer plane with more restrooms would be great."
Pros: "Clean plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Complementary snack to go with free beverage."
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you 3 months ago I had to change. I won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was nice and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Five delays and three gate changes are not cool"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice, polite and helpful. We didn’t lose any luggage and intact. Foods are good and plenty"
Cons: "Movie catalog needs to be expanded"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Disappointed with some of flight attendants. ANA used to provide best customer service."
Pros: "Never take it"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed on time....excellent service, too."
Cons: "I was seated at the exit isle, ample of leg room, but the seats were very narrow. I barely fit into the seats. I noticed the seats behind had smaller arm rests so they had more space. The movies on board need upgrade."
Pros: "Food and services were great"
Cons: "Not a large selection to view on the TV"
Pros: "Had the katsudon and it was great, love the little tapas dishes they include with it."
Cons: "Would have loved to get a hot towel and slippers. 787 got quite cold when sitting in the middle section. Didn’t seem to have any way to control it."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The "meal" served about 1.5 hours after takeoff was just a very light snack. Nothing substantial. Could have been more food."
Pros: "As my other flights with them, the crew is so friendly, the planes are nice and pretty good movie selection. Also nicely organized and they apologized profusely for the hour delay. I wish all of the American airline companies would learn from them! Great beverage service too, even when people are sleeping they quietly come around for us who are awake."
Cons: "The food for vegetarians is not very good. But they feed you a lot and you won't go hungry!"
Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"
Pros: "Huge plane with nice leg room and space. Attentive attendants with excellent service."
Cons: "Didn’t care for the food nor movie choices."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "ANA is a great airline with a decicated group of professional. I love flying with them!"
Cons: "Can't think of one thing."
Cons: "Wifi is a rip off. I bought 1 hour of wifi and didnt last for 1 minute. Really hoping that i can get a refund for it"
Cons: "I wish I had mentioned that I was pregnant. Then maybe I didn't have to sit in middle seat..."
Cons: "Width of the seat for me was bit tight when in a flat bed position."
Cons: "Plane small and cramped didn’t like that we had to be shuttled to the plane not we had to pick up luggage from Narita to itami"
Cons: "Good food, clean toilet rooms. Good seating space with foot rest.goo"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Food was good. I had snow crab and seafood with rice. Many new movies and music choices. Crews were lovely and care."
Cons: "Flight was moved to6 am, 4 hours earlier than scheduled. Found out less than 24 hours before flight. ANA refused to rebook on an available flight leaving at the original time. Disappointed (and tired)."
Pros: "Ample legroom and there is a good selection of food."
Cons: "Was on overnight transit and I was surprised to find out that the airport closes at 11pm and there was no transit lounge inside the airport. It was too late to book for a hotel outside the airport so had to stay at the meeting point area with other passengers."
Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew"
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."
Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Cons: "Not ok"
Pros: "Great service, I'd definitely fly again."
Cons: "Wifi should be free"
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."
Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Short flight, needed to purchase food"
Pros: "Great star wars vessel. Very attentive staffs and flight attendants."
Cons: "The food tasted very much like caned food and the seat had a pouch from wear and tear which wasn't very comfortable at all. Service didn't seem to anticipate service or emphasize needs."
Pros: "Our seats did not recline, but were locked in the fully upright position, making it impossible to sleep. If this is policy for ANA, many customers will go to other airlines."
Pros: "Good industrious crew who were pleasant and obliging. Lots of storage space in a larger aircraft. Washroom automation using sensors was fantastic. Washrooms we're always kept clean and adequately supplied."
Cons: "The seats were very tight."
Cons: "Seats in the exit row did not recline, making them uncomfortable and hard to sleep in."
Cons: "Wine was not served cold"
Pros: "I liked everything. The crew was nice, there was leg room and if people wanted they could watch a movie. There was a nice small meal even though it was only an hour flight."
Cons: "Well, I'm not exactly sure. I understand why there were many different languages for the announcements. English, Korean and Japanese. Even though that stops what you're doing on the screen, it can't really be helped, unless they know which language each person prefers in each seat and programs the message to only play in that language for each individual seat."
Cons: "I think Chinese people just don’t like Americans."
Pros: "Crew was great. I have flown on Asiana a few times before and they are always good. The Korean meal is the best airplane food I have had."
Cons: "More movie choices. Game choices and cartoon series for kids"
Pros: "Appreciate that the Desk attendant tried to sit our family together but couldn’t since it was a full flight. Also appreciated the vouchers handed out when flight was delayed 2 hours in Incheon."
Pros: "By far the best airline, service, crew, etc, I’ve ever flown with! I love Asiana Airlines!"
Cons: "Seriously, nothing. It was great!"
Pros: "FOOD WAS GREAT"
Cons: "BOARDING WAS BETTER THAN MANILA BUT STILL NOT GREAT - NEEDS MORE COMMUNICATION"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The vegetarian ovo lacteo food could be much better. Because I am vegetarian doesn’t mean I can’t eat chocolate"
Pros: "The price. Significantly cheaper than our normal ride on EVA through Taipei. Having said that...won't do it again."
Cons: "We travel between the US and Asia a couple of times a year and normally fly on EVA, who has wonderful service and great food. We took Asiana this time because the ticket price was significantly less than EVA. Below are the reasons we won't do it again. 1. The food was awful. My wife had the Asian dishes and I had the Western dishes. Both were well below the quality of food we're used to on EVA. 2. Transit in Seoul. On the way to Bangkok from LA we had 50 minutes to transit Seoul to our next flight. The transit security line was quite long and it was obvious that we, along with a few dozen other passengers, weren't going to be able to make the connection. After much complaining from us and our fellow passengers they ran us through another security line. Rushed to the airplane and made it. On returning to LA from Bangkok it was exactly the opposite. The only option was nearly 8 hours connection in Seoul. But we had plenty of time to negotiate the transit security line. These connect times did not occur because of a last-minute ticket purchase. I purchased these tickets in July for a December/January flight to Bangkok and return. 3. Inflight service was not at the level of EVA. Like any other Asian carrier, the flight attendants were light years ahead of ANY US airline crew, but below the standard of EVA. Waking you up to eat a meal (I typically don't eat dinner at 1AM), etc. I was sleeping with my seat reclined and the flight attendant took it upon herself to upright my seat at meal time and woke me up, presumably so the person in the seat behind me was more comfortable with space to eat their meal, but hey...I purchased the seat to sleep just like the other passenger purchased the seat to eat, so I think I had just as much right to "my space and comfort" as the other passenger did. Just little stuff that doesn't happen on EVA. 4. Inflight entertainment is lacking as compared to EVA. Few movie and TV choices, few game choices. 5. We sat in economy. The seats were not very comfortable. Seems the cushions were thin and it became like sitting on plywood after a while. Legroom on the 747 flight wasn't so great, but there was plenty of legroom on the A380. The A380 seating was still kinda hard, but the legroom sure helped. 6. Boarding process. Poorly organized. Nobody pays a bit of attention to "boarding by row number". Consequently it's a bit of chaos during boarding. The old saying, "you get what you pay for" is true. For a flight of that length I won't choose to save the $200 or so per ticket and will ride on EVA. We've proven to ourselves that EVA is just pretty hard to beat."
Pros: "I'll give a more complete and less-biased review if I get it back!"
Cons: "It was cancelled. There was no proactive communication from Kayak or Asiana about the situation. We had to cancel and rebook ourselves."
Pros: "on-plane service is good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example their online flight info system is faulty, they cannot figure out the date the plane arrives! mo kidding."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving San Francisco, connecting flight from Seoul to Manila was also late. Service was okay. Entertainment okay."
Pros: "charming efficient staff"
Cons: "Clerk at check in screwed up my frequent flyer number, so I was denied all the priority privileges - bag check, lounge, priority boarding, etc. They later apologized during boarding but otherwise did nothing to fix the situation."
Cons: "Service over all"
Pros: "Superior attentive and hospitable staff. Will def book them again!!!"
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Old style seating arrangement Many young kids in business?"
Cons: "when they leave laugage in korea and they deliver within 2 days"
Pros: "Same comfort as my flight from Honolulu to Seoul."
Cons: "The technology of the in-flight entertainment console. Outdated and less movies to choose from."
Pros: "Requested an aisle seat and granted upon check in. Flight crews are young, nice and friendly. Food are delicious."
Pros: "the safety and flight over all is great."
Cons: "the entertanement not much option. and the food for the last meal no taste and not enough pasta sauce no salt."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Not enough movies/TV screen angle is not good when seat in front is reclined all the way."
Pros: "On time arrival; professionalism."
Cons: "The business class seat is cramped for business class standards. I also wanted seconds for dessert but somehow I was made to feel it was not allowed, that the FA has to check with someone if there was enough on board. Mind you the plane was not full."
Cons: "film selection not good enough and not new enough"
Pros: "On time. Decent food for a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "Plane a bit on the old side."
Pros: "Best attendants and gate agents ever."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful. They always had a smile. The food was delicious too."
Pros: "The crew are the best and attention is also excellent"
Cons: "The seating is hard and is hard on your back, legs and neck. Movie selection is very little and not very good. The bathrooms should be periodically cleaned down and sanitized with a light solution to be and feel clean."
Pros: "I enjoyed having a larger screen for my personal in-flight entertainment. It was much better than on the 777."
Cons: "The seat was noticeably less comfortable on the A330 compared with the 777. The breakfast meal was pretty bad."
Pros: "Access to restrooms through out the plane should be encouraged to avoid traffic by users in one particular area"
Pros: "Great crew and great service"
Cons: "Seating was very cramped"
Pros: "Great food and service."
Pros: "The chair was comfortable. The flight was smooth and on time. The food was good. The entertainment was too good (although I didn't use it) The airport is good."
Pros: "Overall the crew is wonderful"
Cons: "The seat needs more cushioning"
Pros: "Everything seemed mediocre. Ok plane, comfort was ok, nothing great but nothing terrible."
Cons: "I can't understand why the flight attendants didn't come around collecting trash with a trash bag. Almost all the Asian airlines I've flown on, the flight attendants were always real nice and helpful, but That wasn't the case with Asiana airlines this time around. On our flight from LAX to Incheon, and from Incheon to Cebu, the flight attendants all seemed miserable and unhappy, not smiling at all. I've flown Asiana few times before and had always been happy, but this time, it was definitely different, all because of the seemingly unhappy flight attendants. On our 12 hour flight from LAX to Incheon, the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper and in 12 hours, they didn't once come around with trash bag collecting trash. Sure, they collected the plastic cups drinks were put in, but that was it. How do you not come around collecting trash AFTER A 12 HOUR FLIGHT? Also, just the little thought of maybe providing a hot towel after a 12 hour flight would have been nice. In the future, if given almost the same price point for a ticket, I would choose another airline over Asiana Air."
Pros: "Great service, comfy spacious seats, decent meal service"
Cons: "Food was a bit bland"
Pros: "The food was decent for airline food, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Way too much turbulence. Not sure if this was due to being at the back of the plane or if the weather was bad, but it was constant and very jarring. For a 12 hour flight this makes things extremely uncomfortable. Also the plane was a little older and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. The in flight entertainment system was also hard to use, unresponsive touch screen and strange little remote. Additionally we sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for flight documentation. This not only caused us to miss our bus once we arrived at our final destination, but also added another hour to an already very long flight. The captain was not very forthcoming with information about the delay. Overall the experience was unpleasant and I don't look forward to having to repeat it."
Pros: "The airbus had plenty of storage room in addition to leg room. The compartment underneath the window was big and allowed two big purses to fit with additional space left. Plenty of space between seats in front even when reclined. The crew were friendly and ready to assist. So far, this has been the best airbus I've flown in."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Attentive flight attendants"
Cons: "No individual or directional air nozzle. No personal hygiene kit in lavatory for tooth brush, No power source"
Pros: "Helpful and kind crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable economy seats and lackluster entertainment."
Pros: "i like the cabin crew"
Cons: "I didnt like the that there is less leg space in the flight"
Cons: "No vegetarian option for meals like most other flights have these days. On the return flight I even tried to book one online and could not find where/how to do it. I also asked upon check in and was told it takes 2 days at least to request a veggie meal. This is really pathetic considering I'm flying from a part of the world that has a high Buddhist population."
Pros: "Crew was excellent - very kind, friendly, efficient, and provided wonderful customer service. The food was good, seats were comfortable. I'll definitely fly Asiana again, when I'm in the region."
Cons: "There was no obvious way to request a special meal using the AsianaAirlines website."
Pros: "Plane was very old, entertainment system old video and loop model; headrests not flexible, cramped quarters all round."
Pros: "good experience"
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew were very polite and kind."
Cons: "There wasnt anything i didn't like."
Cons: "They fed us expired food. Expired ice cream and expired yogurt. They could not put my wife and me together and I believe that it violates a new law passed by Senator Chuck Shummer. It made it difficult for me to get her medicine to her. On a short flight it wouldn’t matter as much. But we had to endure it for 15 hours. They only fed us two meals instead of 3. Other airlines put a sticker in front of you if you slept through the meal time."
Cons: "No landing form!!"
Pros: "Seat worked as designed Got some sleep Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Better selection of movies; too much violence, foul language, sex and nudity - a better reflection of the food life."
Pros: "The whole service went smoothly without rushing."
Cons: "The original flight I listed for was canceled without any notification until I arrived at the checkin desk."
Pros: "The entertainment system has huge offerings."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "Was pleasantly upgraded from Economy to Business."

Pros: "Our flight was delayed 45 in Chicago due to ice on the wings. Then about 10 mins of holding to land. With a 90 min lay over, unboarding and reboarding was rushed......but Cathay and security did their best I feel, It was only a 90 min flight and I didn't eat or watch a movie."
Cons: "Again, being 6-4, I struggle with comfort and after having no time to rest while switching planes, I was exhausted when I arrived in Manila."
Pros: "Reasonable leg room in the economy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours I could not take on board by carry on luggage because it weighted 10kg. Food service was poor and not well organized"
Pros: "Lots of room, excellent service, decent food. Boarding was uneventful as was the flight itself. We were late taking off, but made up time and landed on time. Only had 1 hour 25 minute layover so was a bit concerned."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific doesn't do a beverage service before serving dinner. I find it odd to get served a cocktail after the first course is served."
Cons: "seat cushion for the back is too hard."
Cons: "Couldnt get the lazy flight attendants to bring me a drink. I asked twice for a Coke Zero."
Cons: "Crew not helpful or particularly friendly not sure if it was because we were not Chinese!"
Pros: "I traveled this time with my wife and 8 year old twin daughters. For the long haul flight from Boston to HongKong, they let all families with children (including us) board earlier, which not all airlines do, and which was much appreciated. It wasn't as big of a deal for the HongKong to Taipei puddle jumper. Crew was very attentive, responding rapidly to calls and rebooting the entertainment system when needed. They were also quick with providing water and ramen noodles when we needed them. Seats were OK, a little short on leg room on the 777, better on the Airbus 350's. In flight entertainment options were very good for the adults, decent for the kids (they seemed to be struggling to find things to watch)."
Cons: "Food options are disappointing. The congee breakfasts have insipid, watery rice and dull flavored savories, and the sausage-and-egg breakfasts aren't much better. Dinner options were also disappointing, with so-so pepper beef and chicken that was not much past good. Snack options mid-flight were OK; they were generous with potato chips, caramel popcorn, chocolate and cookies, but the apples were mealy and there wasn't much in the way of healthy snack options."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and the crew were very understanding of the inconvenience and late hour of the new arrival time."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable - struggled to sleep comfortably."
Pros: "Crew was nice food was great"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The Stewardesses were polite"
Pros: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."
Cons: "My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good, too bad my system want working right"
Cons: "My entertainment system was very jerky, as if I was streaming on a uggling show internet connection, so couldn't really enjoy anything they had. Asked for a reset and either it didn't help or they didn't reset. By the time I wanted to ask for another reset, we were getting served dinner as the carts were blocking the aisles. Didn't get seats together with my wife. It was a 3-3 seat configuration. No empty seats and I ended up sitting behind my wife, in the middle seat. So no window or aisle for either of us. :("
Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."
Pros: "Everyone on Cathay pacific is very nice and the food was relatively good. They did everything possible to make this a better flight."
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"
Pros: "CREW AND PLANE"
Pros: "The economy seat was comfortable with adequate leg room. The flight stsff was attentive. The flight itself left early and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding process was slightly chaotic. I attribute that to anlanguage battier as most of thr passengers were Adain and probanly did not understand the instructions. It worked out though."
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!"
Cons: "Plane was very very warm"
Cons: "Omelette with chicken stil bland."
Pros: "Excellent Entertainment Choices. Wonderful Staff/crew"
Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"
Pros: "Unlimited drink options throughout duration of flight; great selection of moviesmotr"
Cons: "Seat layout not very spacious; only 2 full meals offered on a 14 hr flight"
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Short gap between flight and long walk going to the next flight gate. Passing the security alone take time plus u have to walk then ride a train after that long walk again going to the gate."
Cons: "I had a flight from ZHR to HKG and further with another Airline to Shanghai. After 8 hours delay, I was not rebooked to another flight to Shanghai. Reason: We are only responsible to bring you to HKG - not further. Thanks a lot"
Pros: "Check-in and Boarding was the most enjoyable portion of the flight."
Pros: "American pilots"
Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."
Pros: "Everything was good I didn't have any complaints about the service or flight time"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "I didn't got my Indian vegetarian food"
Pros: "It was a long flight, but service was excellent."
Cons: "nothing to complain about"
Pros: "many choice of movie & language."
Cons: "long queue at check in counter due to high season. I was at airport 2.5h before boarding but not clear coordination by grand staff and many times disordered the queue. not only waste time but also got seat far from my daughter, last ran to the gate. Terrible! Flight attendance were rough."
Pros: "I missed a connection due to bad weather, and the airline was well-prepared with hotel accommodation near the airport. They also put me on the next flight and checked through my baggage without any complaints or drama."
Pros: "Staff tried to book my aisle seat with empy middle seats, meals were very good"
Cons: "Seat space limited when passenger in front puts back their seatback Same breakfast choices offered on the arrival leg to HK as the departure"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. Happy for the USB charger installed in the seat. Staff was quite friendly. Food was okay sometimes."
Cons: "Seats were difficult to recline. Chairs were uncomfortable, not enough back support. Upset that the set of round trip tickets never showed the gate number, even more upset that both ways I could not use online check in, it always said "error.""
Pros: "Cathay's staff remain excellent and remain a standout feature."
Cons: "The quality of the food has decreased dramatically in recent years. Quality meals and entertainment was a hallmark of Cathay previously, now is is below average. Seats are not as comfortable as the ones used 5+ years ago. Overall a big disappointment. Cathay is ot what it used to be. I probably will use another carrier on my next trip."
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Pros: "Great staff and smooth on time flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."
Cons: "Tried and was unable to choose my seat in advance for flight and thus had to wait until I arrived at the gate. Thus I was unable to sit with my daughter. Was promised seats could be chosen 24 hours in advance, but was not allowed to either on line or via phone."
Cons: "Unfriendly, sarcastic flight attendant. No free gin & tonics on United/Lufthansa apparently, unlike other international airlines. Had to pay extra to get what ought to be a standard amount of legroom."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Pros: "There was nothing to like."
Cons: "The time to catch the next flight at Washington DC and Frankfert was too short. Walked about a mile and half between two gates. Request to change the time slot"
Pros: "The fact that it was indeed a plane that went to europe. that's it."
Cons: "The staff (especially ticketing) was rude. And hung up on me when I asked for their name because they knew they were wrong."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The cabin crew was helpful and very friendly and the food was the best we have recently had on an international flight. The entertainment selection was enormous and spanned the realm of all venues."
Pros: "Service personnel for the most part were friendly on the plane. I was happy that my luggage came with me, i've had several times in the past when it hasn't."
Cons: "Some of the German women and men at the counter could be LESS serious and more polite in customer service. Delayed flight was a long time to wait."
Cons: "I missed somehow the distribution of headsets, and I never got one (after asking for one). (Un-)fortunaltely there was no movie I really wanted to watch, or classical music for my taste (recitals, chamber music). Anyway, this is not a major problem, just a tiny glitch. The random boarding went surprisingly well, although I'd prefer the more structured version. Until there is bread, butter and cheese, I am fine with the bland food."
Pros: "The snack/ breakfast was not very good"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Awesome. Very comfortable even in economy seats. Great entertainment"
Pros: "The Staff"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Another passenger came and sat in the seat that was empty next to me and wasn’t ever asked to return to her own, assigned seat"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Cons: "great and easy"
Cons: "I selected my seats online before the flight. It seems my seat assignments were changed (many other customers complained of the same issue). I have siliver status on United and was told that there was no way to be considered for upgrade to different seat. I was told that the list was already full of higher priority customers. Yet at the same time the same employee announced those seats were available for purchase at $200 Euro for others. It seemed in both cases Lufthansa shuffled around passengers out of their selected seats for unknow reasons and also werent honoring frequent flier status programs for changing seats. Furthermore, the in seat entertainment did not work and it took quite a bit of effort including trying to move seats to get the flight attendants to reset the system (they said it would affect other customers who didnt have problems with their entertainment system). 8+hour flight is long flight to not have the system working. eventually the fixed it a couple of hours into the flight."
Pros: "Lufthansa kept to the time schedule"
Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Pros: "The people, the service, the seats, the timeliness... (I did not fly from Washington to Munich on Lufthansa; I flew back on Lufthansa.)"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "27 hours of delay. Nobody cared about our booking. Almost no service counters open. Worst airline service ever"
Pros: "Great food options, blanket and pillow, and free movies was the best"
Cons: "Aircraft not comfortable at all Crew was late (due to storm?), flight landed 30 min late"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a superior airline with friendly, helpful staff. It is always enjoyable to fly with them!"
Cons: "Entertainment seems like you have to pay for even basics. If you need to charge for movies domestically, fine, but even basic news or so timed out. Seats are tight (legroom). I am 6'2" and knees were against seat in front of me."
Pros: "Great flights. No problems. Used a different company to schedule my return flight and having trouble with them. Wish I'd stuck with Kayak!"
Pros: "Crew was very responsive to travelers' needs, although when we had to run across the terminal and were out of breath and explained why to the crew, and there were tons of empty seats in both first and business class, I think it would have been very easy to upgrade us as a good faith gesture because we were so upset that we had not been directly transferred to the aircraft as others coming from the late Vienna to Munich flight had been."
Cons: "I ordered low cal meals for myself and diabetic meals for my husband. Both were identical in contents, and frankly, they were among the worse airline food I have ever had. The hot lunch was inedible -- just clumps of polenta. The "dinner" was a slice of ham, two cukes and a tomato slice, all on three slices of thin sour bread with what appeared to be butter? Truly awful. And again, our luggage didn't make it to D.C. with us, despite additional time after our boarding for "loading.""
Pros: "The flight was quick, getting on was no problem. The crew were friendly, I was comfortable in the seats on the short trip, but I think more than two hours would have been trouble (I'm tall). The food sufficed for a quick trip. I only say Good because the food was good, not outstanding. Entertainment was pretty much magazines."
Cons: "Everything was really just as I expected it to be, nothing too flashy or exciting."
Pros: "The food, comfort and very good costumer services"
Cons: "Movies very short selection"
Pros: "As always with Lufthansa everything went really smooth and timely. I also got my vegan meal which was quite good and the seats seem wider and with more legroom than on other airlines. The crew was very pleasant and attentive."
Pros: "Good timing, organized, nice attendants. excellent crew"
Cons: "Seats were little tight but overall excellent flight and friendly crew."
Pros: "Being a short person, the seats are very comfortable . My feet could touch and rest on the floor. It appears funny but it makes a big difference to a 4 feet and 11 inches person travelling long distances. Overall my experience with LH is excellent."
Cons: "The noodle chicken had too much tomato sauce; otherwise, everything was very good."
Pros: "Crew was great. I was traveling with 2 young kids and it was great experience."
Cons: "I don't like that nobody contacted me yet about my demaged luggage."
Cons: "A worker at the check-in stand in Schiphol airport was very rude. We didn't get Lufthansa even tho I booked through them. And instead we got America airlines."
Cons: "overlay duration is too bad ....its takes 30hrs instead of 19hrs journey"
Cons: "I booked Lufthansa. I should have been on a Lufthansa flight not a United flight which is a inferior airline."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled for 5pm, our connection was late but we mangers to run to our gate @ 4:45pm And it was to late- dors closed So I waved good bat to our plane - it was right there So instead of 1 hour layover it's 16 hours"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and effective. The vegetarian food was excellent. Plane was clean. Bathrooms were checked regularly."
Cons: "Generally, I'm a happy camper and easy to understand some "discomfort" that comes with traveling. Return trip operated by United. Terrible experience. No legroom[I'm 6'-2"]. The seat confinement was so stressing that it was impossible for me but just to extract myself and find a place where i just could stand. Meaning I was standing most of the trip. My wife and myself are globetrotters and this was one of the worse flight experience ever."
Pros: "I would not have selected Lufthansa for this round trip, had I know UNITED is involved period. Can not folks integrate your systems so that boarding passed for united can be printed before the start?? It is the internet age folks, wake up before Emirates eats your lunch!!!"
Cons: "thanks for the survey, but do something and avoid united with UNITED!!!"
Pros: "We were seating toward the rear of the plane and they run of the food options for dinner. So we were stuck only with whatever was left."
Pros: "empty seat by me"
Cons: "paying $17 for wifi, food sucked this time"
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to premium economy! :-)"
Cons: "for a 9 hour flight there was not enough food served - 1 lunch and 2 snacks left us hungry///"
Pros: "-The large selection of movies helped pass the time during my 8+ hour flight."
Cons: "-None of the power outlets ever seem to work on airplanes (including this one)."
Pros: "The additional leg room"
Cons: "it was cancelled."
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and helpful."
