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."

Cons: "Movie selection"

Pros: "Leg room at seats were spacious, comfy. However , toilets could be cleaner."
Cons: "This is 2 nd time I flew JAL. And food was below average. Should offer cup noodles or biscuits if pax is hungry ."

Cons: "More movie selections"

Pros: "Service was very goood"
Cons: "Food was not great and entertainment was average"

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."

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: "Great crew. I easy transfer!"
Cons: "Food was not great."

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: "Dinner (coach) was pretty good. Earphone, screen for entertainment are very nice. I liked the charging slots for each seat. Crew is polite and friendly."
Cons: "The second meal (light lunch, i think) had dry shredded chicken."

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: "Great service Timely departure and arrival. JAL is really punctual"

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: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"

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 crew was friendly, and the view from the window was stunning."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg space; it would be nice if the entertainment system had usb charging available."

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: "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: "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: "Japan Airlines still provides all the services to make for a comfortable journey. The airline staff are excellent, the food is good and there are no bag fees."
Cons: "I did not like that we could not book our seats until 72h before departure."

Pros: "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: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."

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 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: "prompt check in , ample baggages allowances, food and overall steward services."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."
Cons: "As usual it is most difficult moving through the airport in China. It took a long time to get our bags and they were "damaged", however my box made it without difficulty."

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: "I enjoyed their food very much, and the bathrooms are so clean! It made my trip easy. You will never regret using JAL."

Pros: "Cabin attendants were nice. I got sore throat so I asked some items, like water or candies. Then they served me them nicely."

Pros: "Everything worked as planned."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Only a small bread í offered for breakfast for a 7 night flight. Expectation is to have a standard flight breakfast."

Cons: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"

Pros: "With Japan Airlines, there is never a doubt in my mind they are going to be the best airline of choice. I was running late to my flight into Haneda to fly out to Singapore. I literally arrived to the front desk 15 minutes before the plane departed. The ladies at the front desk were very aware of my urgency and walked me threw the crew line and got me to my gate without a missed flight. I cannot thank you enough for the kind and generous work you do."

Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."

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: "There was a lot of leg room and updated features. Also the candy they gave out was good."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking,"

Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"

Pros: "Everything was good but we were not able to select seats on the leg from Tokyo to Nagoya until arrive at check in and by that time all seats assigned and we could not be seated together and had to have middle seats. ANA needs to work this out..."

Pros: "empty flight, foods tasted good."

Pros: "Crews are very helpful and always have a smile in their face. Comfortable seats and entertainment system are very nice. The only thing that makes us not satisfied was the food, for 10 hours flight there’s only 1 main dish...Totally I like their service."

When the turbulence died down, the flight attendants did not bother to complete the food service for snacks or drinks ordered. I had to get up and ask twice. They were not present much at all in BUSINESS CLASS. So that's why I rated the experience as poor. The international food choices are poor. They do not taste good. I think I have to stop flying ANA.

Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me.

Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good.

Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."

There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."

Pros: "Top notch service by Qatar airline. They accommodated us. We don't eat beef or chicken and didn't know you could request vegetarian online before flight. They found a fish meal and informed us to apply for meal online."

Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."

They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"

Pros: "I did get an upgrade and saw a pleasant movie"
Cons: "There were no immigration forms on board. When I asked for one, the hostess said there had been an announcent Mayybe there was one in mandarin but certainly not in english. A senior hostess cam later to apologize zaying the reason was that there were new forns since 1 Dec when leaving the plane, everyone was given old forms! All very unptofessional..."

Pros: "On time. The crew on"

Cons: "Little to no vegetarian option"

Pros: "Unlimited drink options throughout duration of flight; great selection of moviesmotr"
Cons: "Seat layout not very spacious; only 2 full meals offered on a 14 hr flight"

Pros: "The check in staff were only doing their job, by insisting that I had an onward ticket before they checked me in, as per Thai immigration ruling. Otherwise, if I did not have an onward ticket, they stated they could not check me in, and would refund my ticket. The problem is there are many ways of travelling out of Thailand, and I frequently visit Cambodia and Thailand via bus. How could I produce a bus ticket which I usually buy only a week before departure?"
Cons: "That was a bit of a rude shock, as I had never encountered such obstacles before, and most fortunately I did indeed have a reservation for a BKK-GVA ticket, or I would have been refused boarding. Apparently the Thai immigration authorities have a condition for Swiss citizens to possess an onward ticket before they can enter Thailand, but this is the first time an airline has applied this as strictly, and has been as insistent, as Cathay Pacific. I have been in & out of BKK hundreds of times, and this is the first time ever an airline has applied this rule to the letter. So, bottom line, never again will I fly Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "The crew are very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Wish they would improve the food, the bathroom, and the cleanness of blanket and pillow please. It was such long flights from Boston to Hong Kong round trip to stuck in there. The quality and hygiene are important."

Cons: "The food did not smell delicious. My son was already feeling quite ill from the previous trip and could not eat."

Pros: "All but did not eat"

Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."

Pros: "there an attentive airline. Good service an on time flights"

Pros: "Every thing was ok but no snack"
Cons: "Water and soft drink are important for every one shold serve every half an hour"

Pros: "Everything went very well with the very good service of Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "Maybe a map of document control areas."

Pros: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew were very nice and supportive."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor reception checking in was told that I would have to sit middle seat all the way to LA. Not acceptable...my next trip to Southeast Asia I will be checking other airlines!"

Pros: "Excellent service. Very clean, mostly."
Cons: "Tight seats. Not the worst, but still tight. Bathrooms could get messy and unstocked."

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. Happy for the USB charger installed in the seat. Staff was quite friendly. Food was okay sometimes."
Cons: "Seats were difficult to recline. Chairs were uncomfortable, not enough back support. Upset that the set of round trip tickets never showed the gate number, even more upset that both ways I could not use online check in, it always said "error.""

Pros: "Short and efficient flight"
Cons: "At least here they served a bottle of water with food"
