The seats were the equivalent of a small puddle jumper plane in the US. Not very well padded and uncomfortable. I took a small pillow for my back and that helped. You aren’t allowed to use your phone at all during the entire flight. It was next to impossible to choose a seat in advance.

The crew were always really helpful and kind. They were happy to speak English or Japanese.

Despite stitching when I could and as soon as I could. Lower back buttocks hurt pretty bad half way through the flight. This is a knock on the airline industry and not so much ANA. Comfort levels start diminish when you try to squeeze as many seats as you can into airplane. Especially, for people like me who are at least 6' tall. Also, the food was very meh. This was surprising because all my other experiences with ANA were quite the opposite.

We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing.

got us there on time, Customer care was helpful but wish there was an easier way to fix a problem at the airport instead of calling in to a help desk.

they didn't have the arrival cards for me, which they usually do. Traveling with 4 kids by myself and having to do customs by myself without the time on the plane to work through the cards made it difficult. Also there was a typing error on one of my children's tickets that was an airline error but still requires a phone call from me and a fine to fix even with the plane leaving in one hour and having three other children at the gate waiting. There has to be an easier way to fix a mistake that happens in the airport.

The food is always bad, and they didn’t allow use of electronics (phones, and they didn’t like me using my iPod I suppose because it looks like a phone?) on a 6 hr international flight when there was NO individual entertainment and no screens. What’s worse is I went into the bathroom right after a flight attendant and there was urine all over the seat! She either did it and left it, or she saw it and hovered over it, leaving it for the next person. Not classy.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
