Cons: "A Japan Airlines employee escorted me every step of the way to ensure that I made my connecting flight from Tokyo to San Diego because I only had an hour and ten minute layover and this can be challenging when you’re in a foreign country. I cannot thank Japan Airlines enough for how easy they made traveling and how comfortable they made me feel. I Highly recommend flying Japan Airlines for your travels."

Cons: "Food was not as good as in the passed."

Cons: "Never make it on flight because the connection flight so messed up. Need to purchase new ticket with different airline finally."

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: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."

Pros: "leg space was better than with other companies"

Pros: "The personnel from JAL was excellent as was the flight, food, boarding and comfort."
Cons: "We were informed our flight was not to land in Haneda but at Narita. We specifically picked that flight pattern because of the ease of traveling from Hawaii to Haneda to Naha. We wouldn't have to drag two large suitcases and a rollaboard after checking out of customs and immigration very far. Same airport to land and depart. Well the arrival airport was changed to Narita $32.00 per person for Airport Limobus to Haneda. We get off at Haneda and are informed we cannot stay there and wait at the domestic airport for our 6:25 am flight to Naha. We had to load all 6 pieces of luggage on the shuttle bus and transfer to the international terminal because they close the domestic terminal at midnight. There was no hotel accommodations at the domestic airport as the hotel was booked two months in advance!!! We had to wait at the international airport terminal till 4:30 am when we then transferred back to the domestic terminal with our 6 pieces of luggage. Tell me how happy you'd be!!!"

Pros: "Sitting in the Economy section, I was lucky to get the two seats next to me empty so i was able to stretch and sleep. Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Economy Class seats are uncomfortable for long haul. Wish they could do something about it. Some of us dislike rice crackers and peanuts as welcome snacks so a different option could be nice."

Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."

Pros: "First time fly with JAL, friendly flight attendants, excellent seat space, would fly with JAL again."

Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"

Pros: "fine food, the pilot handled a typhoon like a pro"

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: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"

Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"
Cons: "Chair is way too hard."

Cons: "Great"

Cons: "ignore the "poor scores for this leg...flight was just fine, this is what I "bought" Not the horrible first leg of this trip...you should drop the code share with AA it is hurting you!!!"

Pros: "Nothing... Being put on the wrong airline is incredibly degrading ..."
Cons: "I paid for JAL and was put on American airlines YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY BUSINESS AGAIN ... Kayak or jp\american airline. I hope you hire a manager who doesn't lie to their customers... Don't think it's a lie ?? That's BC greed is blinding. Good day"

Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "ANA's entertainment service is quite nice! I don't get bored on the plane. They always keep the washroom clean and I always appreciate it."

Cons: "Deception at the time of booking"

Cons: "Seats, food"

Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"

Pros: "The flight got me home."
Cons: "I don't like that I had to gate check my carry on because the overhead bins were too small but it wan't a big deal."

Pros: "The ANA crew is always exceptional. Drinks and food are constantly being provided and the crew routinely walks about the cabin to ensure passenger needs are being met."
Cons: "For some reason, other countries do not use a number system when boarding. This often means if you're not paying attention, you could be the last to board the aircraft because a line will form almost out of thin air. Minor issue, but a systematic boarding procedure would be good."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Not ok"

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food provided was tasteless"

Pros: "Great seats in business class. Lots of privacy. Great service as well."

Cons: "Categorizing travellers together."

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 departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."

Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."

Cons: "Suggest online check-in providing change seat options"

Cons: "Extremely poor entertainment system - mostly old movies. No Bollywood movies"

Cons: "The food service could have been better . Quality is poor ! There was one lunch service, breakfast service and one snack service through 19.5 hours of nonstop flight. We were hungry through out as the quantities were so little and barely there . The toilets were bad and didn’t even carry tissues"

Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."

Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."

Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."

Pros: "Food was amazing"

Pros: "Nil"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Less beverage served. No coffee or tea was offered."

Pros: "overall condition of plane"
Cons: "snack was too little"

Pros: "Everything but the seat"
Cons: "Seat configuration is not worthy of CP business class. It’s the old 777-200, either retire the plane - that would be a shame, or upgrade the seats"

Pros: "Smooth flight and service."
Cons: "Only one water closet was available and there were no amenities given such as socks or toothbrush as other international flights provide."

Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"

Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"

Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"

Cons: "Nathing"

Cons: "Unable to do online check in, have to waste time to line up in the airport. Not all people need visa to enter a country, this is rediculous that I couldn’t proceed to check in online because I do not have visa to enter my own country. Rediculous"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "That they continuously made mistakes and wasted my time and money. Let alone no sleep and carrying everything to 3 different terminals not completing my trip on any of them. Now I’m spending Valentine’s Day alone in a hotel in Hong Kong instead of meeting my gfs family and sleeping with her the first time in Manila."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, food, disorganized staff, technical difficulties with entertainment system"

Pros: "very comfortable."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment touch screen did not work properly. Staff had yo reset it a few times but it still didn't recognise touch most of time which was frustrating. The screen should be chaned or repaired. It was cold on the plane Departure was delayed but we did not get explanation"

Pros: "Good leg room in coach. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"

Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."

Pros: "Overall excellent"

Pros: "the staff very friendly and helpfull and always there to answer questions they handle some nasty lady in front of us very politely and settle the situation"
Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"

Pros: "Access to Cathay lounge. Went to the Wing noodle bar and coffee loft. Had a good bite to eat before boarding flight running 15 mins late. My request to have my meal service delayed was welcomed by staf."
Cons: "None experienced"

Pros: "The staff on Cathay, as always, was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was extremely outdated - I felt like I stepped into a time capsule and somehow made it back to the late 80's. The seats were hard plastic, 21st century headphones didn't properly work because their inputs required two jacks instead of the now standard one, half of the seat belt had what can only be described as a fun noodle attached around it, and instead of the seat back reclining the actual seat just slid outwards, making you slouch instead of recline. While the staff was lovely, I honestly can't believe airplanes like this are still in commission. All it was missing was an ash tray in the arm rest."

Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."

Pros: "Cathay Pacific has the most attentive flight attendants of any airline on the planet. We had a tight connection in Hong Kong. They accommodated us, by having us move up to Business Class just before landing so that we could get off the plane first. We made our connection without any problem."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."

Pros: "Check-in and Boarding was the most enjoyable portion of the flight."

Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"

Pros: "The staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect."
Cons: "For the price per night i expected the hotel to supply complementary bottle water daily. The A/C was not very effective."

Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "AWESOME!"

Cons: "Passenger that sat next to me occupied part of my seat."

Pros: "Everything great"

Cons: "Try not to loose my luggage next time full of my family’s Christmas gifts. It was a short flight and a giant Leopard print bag. Crew was rude, didn’t wake me to let me sit up. She just shoved my seat forward"

Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was delayed because of a "problem with the plane"- we had to wait at the gate for 2.5hrs for the mechanics to work on it."

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

Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"

Pros: "WiFi"
Cons: "For an airline that has been around as long as they have, their customer service is lacking signicantly. Communication was lacking to the passengers. As far as helpful, I cannot say they I witnessed anyone being helpful or trying to make a pleasant experience. The flight attendants seemed lacking in knowledge, friendliness, consideration, or empathy."

Pros: "Super comfortable business class seats"

Cons: "The flight got cancelled way in advance and nobody neither airlines nor webjet.com informed us about it. Also, nobody could replace our tickets for the next day either.

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

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

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

Pros: "Nothing"

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

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

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, always offering water and anything else we needed. The captain was very good about warning us about turbulence. Boarding the plane was quick and efficient."
Cons: "I felt the aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly. It's disheartening when your seat/area isn't clean and you're stuck there for 13 hours."

Pros: "The Dreamliner was the latest version. Wonderful staff and Toronto is a great airport"

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"

Pros: "Brand new aircraft"
Cons: "Not gourmet not even fast food. A lot of area for improvement."

Pros: "I had room!"

Pros: "Nice plane, solid food."
Cons: "Waaaay too hot."

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

Pros: "Son enjoyed seeing Niagara Falls from the air"

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

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

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

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

Pros: "It was a mostly empty flight, so there was plenty of space."
Cons: "The only bathroom was locked for landing, which I understand is a policy, however a woman sitting next to me REALLY had to go, and being at the back of the plane while everyone was leaving, could not go ask for it to be unlocked. I felt bad for her... Also, it was not clearly written or easy to understand where our gate was at Cleveland Hopkins. It was a small flight, but it could have been clearer."

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

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food not so good and far in between"

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

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

Pros: "I liked that I was switched to Japan airlines. Things went smoother from there"
Cons: "Didn't get to fly the day I was supposed to"

Pros: "Seat number was displayed on the monitor of the sheet."
Cons: "Japanese movies, TV was small."

Pros: "Great service good food and drinks love it!"
Cons: "There was a baby kept crying the whole trip but I know that's something you can't help. Hahaha but everything else was good"

Pros: "Great airplane service, people and amenities"

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

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

Pros: "I appreciated the timing of when they fed us. It was almost like they read my mind each time I thought... Hmm I'm getting hungry. The movie/tv selection was excellent."
Cons: "I felt cramp, which it's economy class so of course. But in the back there were tons of open rows and I wish they had spread us out."

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

Pros: "It was excellent!"

Pros: "Everyone was super polite"

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

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

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

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

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

Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."

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

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

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

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

Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."

Cons: "It was good"

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

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