Same as above

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Connection time at Narita is too long"
Pros: "Nothing to complaint. Excellent airline nowadays"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, food tasted great, the whole experience wasn't anything like the American style companies that try to shake you down for every penny and still get get ripped off."
Cons: "The whole experience was great for flying economy long distance. I will 100% be looking for Japan air as an option for any flight I do in the future."
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "The food the service and the staff"
Pros: "The food the service and flight was great"
Pros: "Excellent Service, food and beverage. Comfortable aircraft cabin atmosphere."
Cons: "in-flight Wifi is not working"
Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."
Pros: "Sturdest were very kind"
Cons: "There was 2 choices for food either pork or chicken But when I asked for chicken they told us no more chicken Then they took the pork from the tray and I had to eat the rest without the main course. Also all the seats were taken by the people who bought the tickets directly from JAL,but there was few seats left all in the middle for people who purchase tickets from travel agents."
Pros: "It was very good no prO lens at all:)"
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: "Premium economy is more worth that the price"
Pros: "Great crew. I easy transfer!"
Cons: "Food was not great."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "everything went well. food and service was great."
Cons: "the return flight had a guy next to me that would keep putting his feet in front of me. he would spill over to my side so much. pretty rude person."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing. Respect for people at a level I haven’t seen on domestic US airlines. Seat configuration of 2-4-2 in economy was great. Food and entertainment was really good. Flight arrived on time with no issues."
Cons: "That the level of service on other airlines isn’t at this level. Don’t go to AA looking for a good example."
Pros: "The staff are always very polite and professional. Food was fine (better the past years). Everything was punctual and orderly."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. The gray ones were much better (San Diego to Narita) in comparison."
Pros: "Courteous and professional flight attendants"
Cons: "Long gap between meals. At least they could have provided juice or snacks in between meals"
Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."
Pros: "Quick boarding, great staff, and a smooth ride on 787 dreamliner."
Cons: "Entertainment system went down but the staff fixed it."
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: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."
Pros: "The staff helping to check in was amazing. There was an error which checking in at LAX, we didn’t have our seats assigned. Ali was able to get us seats together, and by a window at that! She was incredible and super helpful. I knew it would be a great flight just from her service at the beginning."
Cons: "I wish there was a paper that showed you options for food/drinks. The language barrier was a bit difficult at times but the crew was incredibly patience and made sure we got what we asked for."
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly kind and attentive"
Pros: "Ok seats but not quite lay flats. Lay at an angle. Great service by staff"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was outdated. Very dated. The food selection was limited. The cabin was noisy"
Pros: "Attendants appeared intolerant and impatient. Not the pleasant courteous crew flying into Japan."
Pros: "The on board service was very pleasant. Enjoyed the movies on my seat's TV screen. Enjoyed the food very much!"
Cons: "First time on a 787 so was a little disappointed the economy class seating was still a little cramped, the in-flight entertainment and service made up for it though."
Pros: "Service was amazing. Flight attendants were very..attentive!"
Pros: "JAL was very flexible with me leaving a day earlier due to tropical storm which I greatly appreciated"
Cons: "would have liked more food options and recent movie selections"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, movie selection was great and the 787 is a nice plane"
Cons: "Not a lot of room to move around (seat size) and need more bathrooms only had 4 for about 100+ ppl"
Pros: "Very nice , good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Curteous and pleasant."
Cons: "All packed the plane. Tight."
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: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."
Pros: "prompt check in , ample baggages allowances, food and overall steward services."
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."
Pros: "Food was quite good."
Cons: "They did't speak English even though I am not Japanese. They spoke Japanese to me so, I felt little bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seat have enough legs room,I'm 181cm usually feel uncomfortable when I take airplane to somewhere, however Japan Airline offer really good service and comfortable seat."
Pros: "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: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."
Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "Well-appointed airliner. Good food, comfortable seats, wide range of in-flight entertainment. And, as always, extremely polite and accommodating attendants."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough for comfort. I would trade this for leg-room."
Pros: "Direct flight (SAN-NRT) is always nice. (I don't know why JAL always charges more than other carriers.) Check-in desk personal was very kind & caring. Flight attendants are courteous and attentive. Good selection of current release & older movies. Bathrooms were always tidy & clean."
Cons: "When I took this flight last year, food was terrible. So I requested "fruits plate" this time. It was literally fruits only plate. Same types of fruits in different containers. No rolls/bread/ice cream/nothing!!! If I had known this, I wouldn't have ordered it. Boarding procedure needs a vast improvement for economy class passengers."

Great airline and staff. Thanks for comfortable, safe trip home. My best wishes to all United staff. Stay safe.

I loved both the ground and flight crews. They're so patient and willing to accomodate us and help solve problems. I only wanted to suggest if they can give us more new or not so new movies to watch.

Pros: "The crew took care of us during a strange virus affected flight."
Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."
Cons: "I hated everything about this 8 hour flight. Going to and coming from Toyko. The seats were EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I had to keep adjusting my body because my lower back was in so much pain. I ordered a kosher meal for both my sister and I but they only bought it for her. When I asked where was mine they said they didn’t see my name when I was the one who bought the tickets. It was extremely frustrating. I will never fly on this airline again."
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, economy seats are narrow."
Cons: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "The way they board the passengers"
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Pros: "Economy seats were spacious and same size as Economy Plus seats of United. Clean. Crew was amazing, helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Food and services were great"
Cons: "Not a large selection to view on the TV"
Pros: "Typical ANA quality as always."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"
Pros: "The seat I selected was the first row of regular economy. It had extra legroom and received excellent attention by the staff for drinks. The arline served 3 meals and snacks on the flight. I felt like I was eating the entire trip. :)"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow. Most of the rows behind had armrests that were able to raise and lower, but due to my seat selection, my row had the stow-away monitors in the armrests. The seats also didn't technically recline. The lower seat cushion merely moved forward, emulating a recline, but the seatback didn't actually move. It was not quite comfortable."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect. Comfortable, cute stewards"
Cons: "It was too hot in the plane. The plane lacked individual cooling control. We mentioned how warm it was to the flight attendant. It did cool down momentarily, but remained uncomfortably hot the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew... awesome entertainment. Good drinks and food, one of the best traveling experiences I had. Thank you!"
Cons: "Same repeating music"
Cons: "very average"

Cons: "No complain about the flight and the services."
Pros: "Food and Sitting Space"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Customer service was pretty solid."
Cons: "Chose to fly directly across Pacific through multiple thunderstorms instead of routing through Alaska and Canada. Half of the flight was 4/5 level turbulence."
Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."
Cons: "Food was too smelly. Good quality, but airplane food cannot be smelly or it get really unpleasant inside the cabin. Flight attendant need to learn and practice English. Very difficult to understand."
Pros: "Overall comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks like fruit juices were given in too small portions like a quarter cup by stewardess; as if the drinks were being saved or rationed Not much choice for movies. Movies were not well selected"
Pros: "Loved everything about the flight - food was good plenty of drinks throughout the flight unlimited movies smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30+ minutes which made me/many others late for any connecting flights."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, very friendly staff."
Pros: "I loved flying Ana. I cannot stress enough how exemplary the service was and the overall comfort/experience was one of the best I've had. I am looking forward to flying with them again next year when I return to Japan."
Pros: "The flight is on time... the food is good... the service is excellent.... the seat is comfortable.... the ludgage regulation is satisfying can bring 2 pcs @ 23kg..."
Cons: "The entertaiment film needs more variety..."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and reassuring though plane late on arrival in tokyo."
Cons: "Due to snow in Seattle area plan departed 2 hours late which made a short connection time, but all went well."

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Pros: "Aircraft was new and spacious"
Cons: "Crew forgot to ask us for drinks upon serving us meals. I also had to repeat my order 3 times."
Pros: "Wish there was more movies in English"

Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The middle seats were seperated, so I had my own arm rests"
Pros: "the service is good"
Cons: "the seat is too small"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Not ok"
Pros: "Onbaord Crew hospitality"
Cons: "Poor ground handling by narita staff. By bus from terminal to plane. Mixed with economy pasaangers. Chaos from bus to plane. All passangers exposed to freezing cold weather at narita aiport outdoor."
Pros: "As expected from the Japanese, super polite snd patient."
Cons: "If I was going to pick on something, it would be the English announcements which were somewhat difficult to understand."
Pros: "This flight seemed to go very quickly. A wonderful selection of good movies and TV, adjustable headrests (up and down as well as side wings), decent amount of room and foot space, polite crew, good food!"

Boarding process could be improved by breaking the process into smaller batches in a organized manner. Discourage passengers from crowding the boarding area. Meals could be improved . Received identical Meal items on both flights - Diabetic

Have to stand 1 + hours to board, very crowded gate

Pros: "Clean cabin and good service"
Cons: "Not every body is doing extra miles to make customer happy"
Pros: "The crew is always amazing: highly professional, attentive and friendly. The whole experience with Singapore Airlines is always a treat."

Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Cons: "Security screening very slow"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"

Pros: "Great seats and efficient service all round."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual. The food was good"
Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."

Cons: "We ask for wheelchair help from Perth to brooome but it was not provided ."
Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Cons: "We stopped in Korea for two hours, that was not listed on my original itinerary. Then we were late to get to Singapore. My seat was very very small and I was seated next to two very large ppl."
Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"
Pros: "The ability to pre-order food helped bud to intolerance of good types. Crew were helpful in getting us off the place first because they knew were were short on time for our connection."
Cons: "Delayed flight meant a stressful flight wondering if we would make our connection. Also the quality of the pilot on the intercom was poor - mumbled and unclear information."
Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer. Also, to me little things like fold the cup holder before take off and landing is just a simple task to do without giving a lecture to the passenger when he or she might be tight up with kids."
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."
Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines and they delivered"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not as good as they were once"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"
Pros: "The business class bed was the best I have yet encountered. The food and service were great. And the stews? Gorgeous and so agreeable. One young lady even helped me with my back injury; turns out she was studying physical therapy. You can't find a better ride than that,"
Pros: "the flight schedule are very good"
Pros: "Overall experience and wonderful crew"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Staff managed to change seating due to height. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Entertainment console dated. Sound very crackly. Video images not sharp."
Pros: "All went great"
Cons: "I liked all - end to end excellent service"
Pros: "The food was excellent for Vegan meals. The staff was friendly and attentive. The ability to see the flight path, air speed and such is very nice."
Cons: "The entertainment was not the kind of shows I like. Never mind, I see the flight path and orher flight particulars."
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"
Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"
Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("
Pros: "Great service and very friendly staff."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "poor ground and inflight crews hospitality poor food quality poor food variation"
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "Everything is excellent!"
Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Pros: "The hot towels, the legroom in economy, exceptional service. The helpful crew who don't hesitate to help with luggage. The choice of entertainment. The convenience of a direct SFO to SIN flight with a fast connection to Indian cities."
Pros: "Always great and efficient service. Comfortable despite the limitations of the plane itself (don't particularly like Airbus planes)."
Cons: "Wish the food could have been better and the choice for dessert wider."
Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but other than that, flight was great."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"
Pros: "Seat was too narrow"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I had to cancel the flight because the have customer service very poor in air New Zealand vancouver BC agents the could not solve a simple problem in esta that happened to me similarly in Australia with the same problem of esta if they are not efficient they should be replaced there many good candidate for airlines in Vancouver BC"
Cons: "Improve customer services"
Pros: "We paid $400CAD as a OneUp bid to upgrade to Skycouch. We then saw there was a skycouch row free on the plane, and I appreciated that they gave the first choice of this row to paying customers. So we ended up with two skycouch rows, one per person. Was a dream flight, could not fault them."
Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable enough even in the economy class. The crew is attentive. Entertainment is great, lots of movies and music."
Pros: "Crew was excellent; responsive, cheery. The safety video was unique enough to have passengers pay attention (seldom seen onother airlines). We were impressed and will fly "Air All Blacks" again soon."
Cons: "Online checkin presented problems, as did the kiosk checkin. Breakfast could have been served a little earlier -- I realize they wanted to give passengers sleep time and turbulence may have delayed service somewhat, too. Otherwise good."
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My seat 57E could not be adjusted but half way through the flight was given another seat and managed to get some sleep. In our experience Air New Zealand is tops."
Pros: "New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft)."

Pros: "Inflight service and all round experience with Air New Zealand was excellent"

Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in.

Cons: "Seats too small."

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."

Pros: "The crew were always smiling and helpful. We were allocated the SkyCouch seat which was pretty nice"

Pros: "It was simply fantastic - all of it!"
Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Pros: "When booking, we were unable to choose our seating hence we were not sitting together. At the airport we asked if there was a way they could put the three of us together. Air New Zealand was able to accommodate our request. It was a 12 hour flight. We were very grateful."
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."

Cons: "Boarding started a little later than scheduled."
Pros: "short flight made seats less inportant"
Cons: "not the seats I selected in October"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Lots of leg room, quick and helpful boarding. Loved my first time on Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "Quality airline -new and clean plane with good seats and AV set up"
Cons: "length of flight...."
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."

Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "The ICE entertainment program & the food"
Cons: "my TV screen didn't work"
Pros: "Nice ontime flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Travelled economy and it was very good. Would love to try business class sometime. Staff excellent food very good."
Pros: "everything was very nice!"
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Cons: "The bus ride took over 10 mins. Why are flights to South Asia and other developing countries not given boarding via the bridge? Horribly long bus ride at DXB for flight to DEL."
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Pros: "I'm not going to travel by Emirates again. My miles were not added though I asked multiple concerned people. Same thing happened with some of the fellow travelers."
Cons: "AS we boarded the staff weighed our carry on luggage. This created hardship and stress. If they felt my carry-on bag was too heavy I would be in big trouble, because I didn't have any money to pay additional fees."
Pros: "The comfort of the Airbus A380. Friendliness of staff, good food and wine. Great entertainment programs. I am a concert pianist, and I can not believe you offer so many channels of Classical Music on board! Plus all the movies.... Exceptional and good value. I am hooked!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food looked so bad and tasted even worse. Very very poor quality of food. My daughter and I , both would open the tray and close it back. We ate only the crossiants and fruits. Emirates need to improve their meals."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."
Pros: "Good movie selection Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No internet Food was not tasty"
Pros: "Loved the space and comfort and friendly crew"
Cons: "I travel overseas 1 to 2 times per annum. I've always chosen flights based on economical costs only, and most times disappointed by the level of service, quality and overall feel. This time recently, I chose Emirates airline and was impressed by their overall offering. I'm now converted and will fly Emirates ALWAYS!!"
Pros: "The spacious seats and the in-flight service"
Pros: "The extra seating space - made the long journey A bit more bearable and relaxing."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Pilot was good flying"
Cons: "Hospitality Food Serving I recommend to change the staff They are not serving as per ordered meal When asked for water no response till 1 hour Light indicated for assistance never bothered"
Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"
Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"
