Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"
Pros: "Check in is a breeze, the staff even helped me to load my luggages to the counter. Boarding is prompt and orderly. The food is excellent , love the kabosu, there is snack available at the back in case you are still hungry. Entertainment is good choices, headphone is nice."
Cons: "None so far, been travelling with ANA 8-10 times a year for more than 5 years"
Pros: "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
Cons: "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."
Pros: "I like the way the flight attendants treat the passengers. They are very courteous, friendly and wearing very sweet smiles.The airplane is very prompt when it comes to arrival and departure schedule. Thank you very much for providing me a wheelchair which made my travel more convenient."

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."
Pros: "Very efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"
Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."
Cons: "Sitting space"
Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."
Cons: "I thought I would get a little more than a few extra inches in Economy Plus. Maybe an overnight packet (ear plugs, eye mask, toothbrush?) and/or a foot rest for the extra money, but it was literally only a few extra inches of space."
Pros: "Nice smile and service. Food is good as well"
Cons: "Arrived later than schedule"
Pros: "Everything went well. ANA customer service wonderful, both at the counter and on the plane. Loved the meals, and fun to watch the available movies and shows at your seat."
Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."
Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"
Cons: "The in flights entertainment was a little limiting to me- but with the great service by crew- it didn't matter so much . But a little more wide variety could go a long way - or more new releases"
Pros: "ANA is one of our favorite airlines. Consistently great service, if not occasionally a little too 'rule centric'... but it's Japan, and that's why it's so nice and clean and everything works perfectly... :)"
Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "Tray is too small and not able to use the entertainment system because it is too short for a tall person. I would be staring down the entire time."
Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating flight attendants ... all with a smile!"
Pros: "After flying domestic flights on US carriers, the idea of getting two meals and free drinks is almost shocking. Even more so when the food (though very Japanese) was quite good quality in economy. If you have to spend 10 hours or more crossing an ocean ANA is certainly a good bet, at least if you don't mind a bento box style meal."
Pros: "more new movies will be better"
Pros: "La puntualidad absoluta, la amabilidad de la tripulación y los baños impecables durante las 13 hr de vuelo."
Cons: "Creo que la comida podría mejorarse un poco pero es un detalle mínimo"
Pros: "Service in side."
Cons: "Air host listen on time"
Pros: "I like the nice and warm service from the crew"
Cons: "Food can be more variable but overall its oke"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic (except that I didn’t watch or listen to any of the entertainment"
Pros: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Cons: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Pros: "Great airline!"
Cons: "some of the gates can be long walk"
Pros: "The food they served was very unique and will ready you for a trip in Japan ( if that is the root you are taking it for) The entertainment options were overwhelming ( movies, games, and anime)"
Pros: "The food were good and just enough for the inflight need"
Cons: "The time to get to the next flight is so tight! I wish there's a 30 minutes more so I don't have to rush and be the last one to get in the plane."
Cons: "Seats seem extra small, narrow and short. As a window seat there was very little room between the seat and the wall. Food and entertainment average to below average (compared with Qantas, Singapore Airlines)"
Pros: "Good service and not too long of a wait to board the plane."
Pros: "highly efficient processes on ground (Narita airport), clean and enough space in airplane, exteremely supportive and polite staff"
Pros: "I fly around often, at least 10 times a year, and ANA has always had the best service, cleanest planes, and the best entertainment. I recommend flying with ANA anytime you travel."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
Cons: "Sitting on the back rows , when I was served my food the lady said there was no more options I had to take what was left, meaning if I wanted the pasta I would Not get it because unfortunately I got a sit at the back of the airplane, but I paid the same amount of money for the ticket as the person sitting 20 rows in front of me It is outrageous"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time. The plane was nice too, nicer than most other airlines. The seats were roomy enough, as good as economy can be. Food was one of the best. The movies were pretty new which is always a plus. The crew was awesome. I get motion sickness whenever I ride anything, be it planes, buses, trains or boats, and the fact that the flight attendants kept checking on me put my mind at ease."
Cons: "There was a smell of old sweat odor from the seats, maybe table. Plus my table was still wet when I opened it. So that was kind of gross."
Pros: "Cabin comfort"
Cons: "Only two Hindi movie"
Cons: "There was no information about connecting flights before landing."
Cons: "can't think of any.!"
Pros: "ANA has always done a fantastic job, mfrom customer service to the food to checking you in."

Cons: "movies were not sp good"

"25 minute flight. Crew was friendly and competent."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Out of everyone’s control Mother Nature"
Pros: "My flight arrangements were not found I had to purchase new tickets and spend additional money for something I had already paid for I wasted all day and it was the worse experience ever."
Cons: "Refund my money back"
Pros: "Getting to know the crew who served me in delta one was great! Food service was done pretty quickly and good snacks available."
Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."
Pros: "Very professional."
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing"
Cons: "May be more frequent hydration"
Cons: "Far in advance I requested a seat with extra leg room for a back condition that is supported by a physicians note. The seat did not appear to me to have extra leg room. I was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I felt really comfortable safe and more than happy to fly with Delta. Thank you."
Cons: "More vegan options."
Pros: "The crew was understanding and sympathetic to the customer's frustration with a delayed flight."
Cons: "Delta should have figured out a way to not delay the flight. Every flight was delayed."
Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."
Pros: "Great crew serving God beverages and meals. The was a variety of Entertainment from which to choose."
Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."
Pros: "There is Nothing that like"

Pros: "The crew at the checking counters were very accommodating. Knowing that I had requested a wheelchair, they changed my seat to one that was closer to the door."
Cons: "The flight attendants in my could have been more visible other than just during the food service time."
Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"
Cons: "Crew could be on time for work so the flights aren’t delayed"
Pros: "For a puddle jumper jet it was amazingly comfortable. Even had enough room to put both feet and a carry on bag under the seat. And the seats were more comfortable relative to the competition (eg. United and US Air)."
Cons: "Seats can always be more roomy but that is a problem with all puddle jumper jets."
Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."
Cons: "There is no room. The snacks were fine, but the main meal was disgusting."
Cons: "Flight Delayed > Pilot on Connecting Flight"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very small plane"
Pros: "Had a great experience with Delta all around. Seating and crew were lovely, in flight entertainment was great. Overall, very pleasant experience and flight was on time."
Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew. Early am departure. On board entertainment is a great selection of movies/TV etc. Clean aircraft. Comfortable seating. Great flight."
Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"

Pros: "Excellent gate personnel, spacious and clean plane"
Cons: "Some crew members were a bit curt"
Pros: "Total Experience of Flying on this Airline ."
Cons: "No Comment."
Cons: "Bad information about delays"
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "A330 very nice airplane. Clean and comfortable in Delta One. Very professional cabin crew. Very good boarding process, even with every bag hand inspected."
Cons: "Flight left the gate early and took off two hours late. Arrived Atlanta 100 minutes late. Why? 7000 pounds overweight. EZE departure switched runways as we left gate, requiring removal of cargo containers, not once, but twice. In summary, DL bet wrong on runway and wind component, at the expense of on time arrival and thus connections."
Pros: "Rare, the flight wasn’t so full that everyone was uncomfortable. The flight attendant staff were friendly."
Cons: "Drab interior. This was a Jet Airways flight."
Pros: "2 Delta employers went out of their way to address our messed up situation and make sure we got home without robbing us blind."
Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"
Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and travel delayed by 24 hours."
Cons: "According to the website and documentation a card holder is supposed to get the first bag free when using this card. I did not, so I will be cancelling the card."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Pros: "Nice service for short flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 2 days."
Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "The entertainment console worked this time. Over the past year it has worked only about half of the time."
Cons: "GpldMedallion holder, first SkyPriority people to board, sitting in Delta Comfort and still could not get overhead bin space by my seat."
Cons: "I did not understand special with covid why half the plane was empty they keep us all together. Would have been nice to be able to spread out and have more room. Seats and leg room are small."
Cons: "flight didn't even happen"
Pros: "Everything great"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment choices and regular food and beverage available"
Cons: "Boarding took so long and only 2 spots they were allowing entry and one person was there for 10 minutes so essentially had 1 window And not the friendliest staff"
Cons: "They messed up the seat assignment I paid extra for, and while I bought WiFi for the entire trip it turned off halfway through."
Pros: "Great crew with positive attitude. Boarding was non chaotic and plane was clean and new."
Cons: "Food could be much better"
Cons: "I requested for wheelchair die to my knees problem, but there was no wheelchair for me at Narita and Bangkok."
Pros: "JAL flight crew were the best"
Cons: "all were good"
Pros: "When my original flight out of Roanoke was delayed so much that I was going to miss my connection an employee went above and beyond to find me a different flight to ensure I got home that day."
Cons: "The first AA employee basically told me I was out of luck and there was nothing he could do, which was incorrect and he just didnt want to do everything he could to help me like the other employee eventually did."
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "For being stuck in a small space for twelve hours, they made the experience about as good as you could ask."
Pros: "The Jetstar flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Cons: "Paying for non middle seats"
Pros: "I appreciate that I was able to switch seats thereby giving the cat and its owner more room."
Cons: "I have to say I was very surprised that there would be a passenger flying next to me with a cat in a carrier seated next to me."
Pros: "Boarding at Springfield was fast and simple. The check-in agent were friendly and efficient. I especially appreciated that the flight arrived early into Dallas. I had a little more time to find lunch before my next flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor maintenance that caused issues before take off. Of course safety is important but that is why maintenance should be done routinely and prioritised accordingly. The pilot on the first delayed flight (new airplane) was clueless, his exact words "... our analysis team from midwest needs an hour to figure out whether we can fly or not" This is after we have boarded the flight. Then after about an hour of sitting in the plane, he says "rumor has it that a new plane will be towed in..." What? Why didn't they stop boarding and just get the new plane in. And I don't appreciate the emails saying flight is delayed without giving any reason for it. AA could have certainly done a better job of communicating the issue. Further the flight crew including the pilot were acting like victims. If it were an Asian carrier like Singapore Airlines, the crew would be smiling and providing assitance courteously since they represent the airlines. Not flying them again."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "I'm glad they didn't fly an airplane that didn't pass the mechanic's evaluation."
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
Pros: "The amount of things to keep you entertained for the long flight"
Cons: "I had to have my seat up the entire route so that made a very uncomfortable flight was never able to really rest"
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Wish the seats could've been a bit more comfortable"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine -- I never felt any major discomfort."
Cons: "All three of our luggage were left behind in Chicago; normally it would not be a big deal, but we are leaving for a trip right away and needed our suitcases, clothes, and the souvenirs we had bought for our friends. This inconvenience is why I rated this flight low."
Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."
Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."
Pros: "The food and seat back entertainment were great, as well as the staff"
Cons: "Legroom was borderline inhumane, as a 5'10"adult I don't think it's too crazy to ask for a little more space on a 12+ hour flight. Good luck sleeping"
Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."
Pros: "Everything was organized pleasant staff,"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Cons: "one staff member was extremely rude when asked for another beverage."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. I really liked the touch screens on the chairbacks. Food was fine for airplane food. It came more than I expected. Get sandwiches over the meals, they are better quality. A vegetarian guy had a hard time but the crew tried to help him out. Comfort was ok for a 13 hour trip. The chairs are not really the best and my back hurt after a while. Make sure you stretch! Crew was nice except for one lady. But she wasent rude just... non responsive. Other members were fantastic though. Boarding was very painless."
Cons: "Veggies and salads: gross - should have been blanched. Mid- flight snack was literally frozen. The meat had ice crystals!"
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and we were stuck with very warm conditions for 2 hours and 40 minutes before we took flight."
Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."
Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."
Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."
Pros: "Everything was great their wasn't enough clarification as to what airline I was fliying. It said Japan air on my confirmation email but it would up being through American Airlines. The experience through American was superb but I would of liked clarity on such airline I was going to fly with."
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"
Pros: "There was quite a large selection of movies. New releases to old classics. All free."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by a few hours due to mechanical issues but they did give us free food and drinks once we were on the plane."
Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Cons: "We ordered fruits meal but the crew didn't get the request. I have a confirmation email of the meal"
Pros: "The customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."
Pros: "Crew was great, there was nobody sitting beside me so that was a big bonus. Smooth flight and the wine was pretty good."
Pros: "Generally flight attendant was nice and efficient. Excellent service and"
Cons: "Food was poor quality. Sometimes water taste like bad tap water. There are very nice crews but some of them are not. Some flight attendant bumped my knee a little when she passed by but didn’t care or noticed."
Pros: "Flight delayed and changing of gates"
Cons: "To far from one gate to the other, you need a shuttle"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The vegan food made me very very sick for a few days. Also the lunch was a chicken cup of noodles with a turkey sandwich. No vegan option. My luggage got left in Toronto."
Pros: "Flight was confortable and crew was great we even arrived slightly early."
Cons: "One of the onboard meals was literally cup noodles with sides."
Cons: "Person sitting next to me brought on four bags and over head bins were full. This merged into my space which is too small to begin with. Boarding should control how much is brought into plane. Need more space. Airline travel is no longer fun. I wish the air line CEOs would ride in economy every once in a while."
Pros: "The $20 food voucher that was quickly offered shortly after the delay was announced."
Cons: "Subsequent announcements were confusing because notices were inconsistent."
Pros: "In-flight crew"
Cons: "Our luggage was trashed. Brand new luggage was broken with holes in the side and wheels missing. This was not cheap luggage this was 10 year warranty luggage but how do you collect on a warranty when you’re in a foreign country? So had to buy new luggage for the trip home. We’ll see if it survives their lame baggage handling."
Pros: "Friendly staff. The 777-300 ER has high ceilings. Individual outlets available for electronic devices. Clean washrooms."
Cons: "Vegan menu needs improvement. No toothbrush or slippers issued. Movie collection was outdated and contained more Asian content."
Pros: "My postponed flight was fine and flight attendants great."
Cons: "I missed my original flight because there were no staff at BWI airport counter or secret Air Canada office 55 minutes from flight time. Flight was delayed 35 minutes, but no way I could check a bag or get to gate."
Pros: "Business class seats and the overall service"
Cons: "Flight was late and the movie selection in English is pretty old."
Cons: "a long 5 hr flight, they just give you a drink!!!!(they cant afford even a little bite?) Even at the time of the drink they bypass my line and we had to ask and she said sorry!! We did,nt get the usual boarding notification by e-mail 24hrs before??"
Cons: "First flight was canceled, they did not get me on a flight till 4 pm the next day! Not to mention the two French Canadians I talked to were extremely rude. Finally the 3rd customer service women tried to get me home sooner but was unable to!! Have flown for years on air Canada without issues but this last trip was such an inconvenience I will not being flying with them agin!! They also did not cover my hotel or the taxi costs associated with me having my flight canceled, not even a discount!!!!!"
Pros: "Air Canada Cancelled the flight, which would have been ok, but their representatives left the airport instead of sticking around to help people reschedule. Their phone line was flooded with so many calls that you couldn't even stay on hold. And their email service takes at least 24hrs before you get a response. So effectively the entire airline was unavailable, even after canceling many people's vacations. I'll never fly AC again."
Cons: "One attendant walked by offering water - nice that they offered water in the middle of the flight. But she didn't even give customers the chance to raise their hands bec she walked by so fast saying "water, water, water." I wasn't even dozing off and I couldn't catch her and I was sitting by the aisle. Dirty bathrooms with doors that don't lock - not just one particular stall but more than one stall."
Cons: "I haven't been on a plane with no tvs in more than 10 years. The least you could do is let people know prior to boarding. Like when you purchase the tickets or 24hours before!"
Cons: "Food was terrible, plane was freezing"
Pros: "Only enjoyed entertainment"
Cons: "Quality & type of food Boarding sprocess Lack of carry on space Unprofessional crew Old plain- didn't realize still in operation Small seats Little to no leg room Fact you actually had to pay for rental of iPads Terrible entertainment system"
Pros: "I liked the flight crew. They were very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Pros: "Really enoyed the personal entertainment system. 12 hours is a long flight and the entertainment really helped pass the time away. It was fun seeing the flight status on the monitor and watching movies. We were fed very well. I believe we had 3 meals and a snack. Attendants came by to see if we needed more to drink too."
Cons: "It was a huge plane with about 500 people on board. Not a lot of space for getting up an walking much. Not a lot of space between seat rows. I guess that's just the way things are. Had a huge issue with checked baggage [see below] but don't know which airline was at fault although the AIr Canada employee who checked our baggage in Washington, DC said we wouldn't see our bags again until we arrived at Hirochima, our final destination."
Pros: "The beef and rice meal was really delicious and there were some good movies available for viewing. I enjoyed the cup noodles given during the flight."
Cons: "The USB port only worked for a few seconds at a time so my mobile phone would not charge in either my screen nor my neighbor's screen. Luckily I had my laptop to plug my phone into. During lift off I found someone's used headphones and a candy wrapper along with my neighbor's magazine's in my seat pocket."
Cons: "flight cancellation without overnight accomodation"
Pros: "Crew attitude and faster flight than original plan"
Cons: "Movies and food"
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "There was a screaming child and nothing was done about it the entire flight."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Left almost an hour late."
Pros: "The crew is very good. Food was good. It is a short flight but I think it was good."
Pros: "Crew was moderately attentive"
Cons: "Boarding at the Toronto airport was an absolute mess. One of the "gentlemen" scanning tickets was moderately rude to people waiting to board. Which I mean, I get it, it's a rough job, but dude. I don't wanna be here any more than you do. Stow the attitude and scan the ticket. The food was eh, but that's all airline food. There isn't much space between seats so you're bumping elbows most of the ride, and during a 13 hour flight, that gets old real quick."
Pros: "Not much can go wrong on a flight shorter than 90 minutes."
Cons: "3 delays that added up to 1 hr, but counter personnel kept us informed."
Cons: "Food quality was extremely poor. Cup noodle for lunch and rice porridge for breakfast is not what we paid for!!! In addition, Japanese crew cannot announce in proper Japanese She must have forgotten polite Japanese expressions ... Sad."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "Affordable flight, helpful crew and convenient booking"
Cons: "Somehow meal preference did not get sent to air Canada and being vegetarian I had nothing to eat. The cheap cup noodles and sandwiches with eggs and meat were not an option."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice"
Cons: "I hated the breakfast food. One of the flight attendants pushed me when I was leaning in my seat to see something ahead of me. I thought that was very rude. She could have asked me to move."
Pros: "Good fight and crew was very good."
Pros: "Overall not a bad flight. Comfortable enough, good movie options. Food tasted could, but did not agree with my body."
Cons: "Late boarding not enough options on their menu since were I got to my hotel at 12:30 after my car rental to listen to please overall how late they were"
Pros: "The food was good and served frequently, and boarding was quick. Connecting flights had a good amount of time between them so there was no stress about catching a flight."
Cons: "Horrible seat in the middle seat of the middle row. Very uncomfortable. Entertainment choices not as good as Cathay flights. Hot tea was consistently too cold."
Pros: "Everything but the seats. The food was alright but better than most airlines. No issues with my luggage at all."
Cons: "The seats are quote awful if you are tall, like myself. I'm 6'3" and 4 hours into my 13 hour flight, I was regretting my decision not to pay the extra $100 for a seat with more leg room. My back hurt for 2-3 days after the flight, and I got up to move around every 3 hours or so."
Pros: "I had upgraded to economy plus for my trip from Toronto and asked for an aisle seat. The plane was full so I was asked to wait till I was called. When they called me back they gave me a free upgrade to first class. I am a gold status United passenger so that may have had something to do with it but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The crew was wonderful, the food was excellent and the entertainment was terrific. I totally appreciated the ability to sleep over the 13 hour trip in the bed provided. I have not had such a lovely experience in many years. I thank Air Canada for their generosity and kindness to me. Sincerely, Doryth Deisley"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I have never been able to hold a conversation with a flight attendant before, but the staff was friendly and kind. I also love the entertainment, like the games. They had some decent games and it was fun to compete with other people on the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like the food too much, though. The quality was unpalatable: wilted salad, mystery meat sandwich, and cold eggs. Blegh. Also, I felt very cramped in economy. I rode other airlines that give slightly more leg room and on a 14 hour flight a little goes a long way. This one was just uncomfortable."
Pros: "ANA crew were cute, polite and kind. They even put me on an earlier flight. I'm glad it was operated by ANA, one of the world's best airline."
Cons: "Everything went so smoothly with my ANA flights. Nothing to complain."
Cons: "No vegetarian options were available for dinner or snack. Crew was extremely rude when I inquired about it, and I was not promoted to select a vegetarian option when I purchased my ticket. The breakfast was vegetarian friendly, but it was too disgusting to actually eat."
Pros: "Plenty of water was offered and fast efficient boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "I had no entertainment system for the entire 13 ½ hour flight and nothing was done"
Cons: "Food wasn't great kids meals looked better"
Pros: "The plane was new and as a passenger I really felt that. Seats were more comfortable than usual, and little things like new touchscreen media players in coach and spaces to stretch your legs in were appreciated. The crew was solid, and food was decent. Video selection was surprisingly good."
Pros: "The seats were decent - not too hard and not too cramped."
Cons: "The food was awful. The entertainment system didn't work properly which is not acceptable for a 13 hour flight. The staff didn't seem to care - rarely saw them."
Cons: "Leaving late due to an electronics issue started the ball rolling for near disaster upon arrival. Warning - unless you have more than 2 hrs on the ground at Haneda, do not takes connecting flight. You have to go thru immigration, get your checked bags, customs, and beat a 45 minute cut off by the airline in order for them to recheck your bags at your arrival terminal. We missed it, had to load onto the airport shuttle bus, unload at the domestic terminal - all without any instructions given by any anyone! WAY to much stress! Friends followed us one week later. Due to a late arrival in Haneda of over an hour, they were rerouted to a different airport costing a hotel stay, the shipping of their bags, and a bus ride the next morning. In all, it cost them over $450!!!"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so Gate Agent reconfigured seating so solo flyers did not have to share row. When air traffic issues delayed flight, crew let us move around and they served water. Full video options for such a short flight and small plane was nice."
Cons: "Redundant checking of travel documents could be unified I suppose. I do understand international travel peculiarities may be hard to overcome"
Pros: "The crew, the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Comfort in the seat."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Food purchase options and better snacks"
Pros: "Used miles to upgrade to Premium Plus. Excellent seat and food!"

Cons: "Food, not overselling the flight, age of plane, bathroom cleanliness"
Pros: "Service was fantastic everyone so friendly."
Cons: "Nothing. It was fantastic!"
Pros: "the flight from JKT to Tokyo to Newark was good, entertainment was good, food was good, crew was good."
Cons: "THE flight from Newark to Montreal was HORRIBLE! the flight was delayed and when we boarded, we were stranded on the taxiways for 2,5 hours. After 20 hours of flying, and you know your last flight was just another hour, I ended up arriving Montreal at 12.30 AM when it should've been 9 PM"
Pros: "Service, entertainment, drinks, everything! Very good!"
Pros: "This United flight was really an embarrassment when it comes to international flights for many reasons."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The food not fit for human consumption"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and ensured I got what I needed even though I slept through most of the flight."
Pros: "Eventually got to Chicago"
Cons: "Missed my connection"

Pros: "On time, not crowded, seat with enough space, responsive screen and good sound"
Pros: "Spacious enough (for economy), decent food, no delays in boarding or in schedule"
Cons: "I was surprised at the rudeness of the female staff towards people who didn't understand her the first time she said something. Obvious looks of anger and condescending tones towards those people spoke to poor customer service; however, one male staff was really friendly and fluent in Japanese. Very helpful"
Pros: "It arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The food are not appealing no salads & ran out of choices, eating something that we don't want to"
Pros: "The crews were very kind and friendly."
Cons: "I bought a ticket for ANA but my flight was United. It was ok but I payed extra to get flight with ANA so I was disappointed a bit."
Pros: "Mostly a good experience."
Cons: "The WiFi and TV touchscreen were broken and some of the crew were a bit short with me when I was trying to order snacks and drinks during the flight."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude!"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Stink in the plane"
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "My dear was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful. Food selections were very good. Lavatories were well maintained throughout the 14-hour flight, which is very much appreciated."
Cons: "Movie selections could be a little more current, but the options presented were fine."
Cons: "Reputation of United makes you expect bad service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The food was so so - I left very hungry (which is not so good for a diabetic). One of the toilets overflowed and soaked the carpeting by the bathrooms. There was an out of order sign on the door - but no sign indicating the rug was soaked. I left my shoes by my seat - had to throw my socks away. Movies & entertainment was mediocre."
Pros: "Service all crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding tome"
Cons: "Slight delay, entertainment system appears dated, boarding can use more organization, overhead bin space can be at a premium due to people trying to bring too much aboard (number of carrying) and they can run out of the popular food choice"
Pros: "Plenty of room and the flight crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and ran out of overhead bin space (no attention paid to size or number. The boarding groups (particularly between 3/4) was a mess in terms of organized lines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "ANA: Flight attendents very nice"
Cons: "ANA: Seat was uncomfortable for a seven hour flight....Could not totally recline ANA: Food was very basic--not a business class meal"
Pros: "Great flight and crew"
Pros: "It was good. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 4 times...but I was kept updated."
Pros: "I got upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus without being charged a dime more. And the difference between the two classes is very noticeable! The Economy Plus seats may have an extra 3" per side and it's awesome! Plus, United partnered up with ANA for my first leg to Manila and that plane was spectacular, as was the top-notch crew!"
Pros: "great service from flight attendant Angela and Asian crew."
Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "not much. only bless the gate agents for being able to rebook the plethora of travelers like me who get stranded."
Cons: "United Airlines constantly overbooks so you either don't get on, or you make the connecting flight. On my recent trip, I had to be rebooked on both flights to my destination, and both flights home. They really suck."
Pros: "United delayed departure from ROA due to a crew and mx scheduling problem. Unable to make BOI connection. Not back until next day."
Cons: "United reflowed aircraft and aircrew to other "more important " flights."
Pros: "Flight attendant very personable."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Cons: "It was a very unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "Nah, sorry I don't have any special for the flight!"
Cons: "The United flight so far was a terrible experience for me. the food is so salty and so little!! I am a person who love to eat so much, but the food (noodle) was very bad, I didn't finish it. The ice-cream at first I'm so excited and the taste very good! However, it been already melted so... I'm so disappointing. There is no entertainment on plane... I'm so boring"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses had a terrible attitude. She was rude to people and rolling her eyes at them. She also seemed to be rude to her fellow co workers."
Cons: "Did not have enough good snacks"
Pros: "I made it to Thailandafter 2 flights only to be told iIccouldn'tenter without Thai visa. iIwas sent back and forced to use my flight back. Staff was horrible in Thailand"
