Cons: "This was a JetStar flight, not JAL as the title says. I've only had good experiences with JAL. Despite paying for two pieces of baggage, I had to pay an extra charge. One of my pieces was a pair of light skis (5kg, well below the allowed 20kg) that were apparently too long for normal baggage. It is just another way to extract an extra fee. Seat spacing on Jet Star is dismal. Thankfully it was a short flight"

Pros: "excellent food,comfortable, easy check in process"
Cons: "my bag was deemed not carry onable by staff but I had checked to make sure measurements met carry on criteria"
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "Good solid flight on a relatively comfortable plane"
Cons: "Narita seems to have had delay problems as of late. What should have been a short flight was extended over 40 minutes on the runway. Not the airline's fault by any means, but I'd recommend looking for flights through Haneda if you're passing through Tokyo."
Pros: "Cathay and JAL Provided excellent customer service throughout the the flight. Everyone did an excellent job and went out of their way to make sure I made flights and had what I needed."
Cons: "Only 30 people were not priority boarding (including me). Not being Japanese makes you a second class citizen on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "The most polite staff that I have ever met. Very accommodating and concerned about our ride over the pacific ocean. I am a vegetarian and forgot to fill order my meal online. The staff was amazing in handling this, offering me everything else they had that wasn't meat. The economy seats were the most comfortable i can remember for an over night flight."

Cons: "ignore the "poor scores for this leg...flight was just fine, this is what I "bought" Not the horrible first leg of this trip...you should drop the code share with AA it is hurting you!!!"
Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Very polite and fast service, international Languages"
Cons: "Food was a bit boring and bland, but since it was only from Seoul to Tokyo, it was okay. But I was hoping for Japanese food instead of that Egg dish, the entertainment system needs to be updated since the touch screens had a delay of about 10-15 seconds or didn't even function at all."
Pros: "Staff was nice and got me a bulk head seat as I am very tall. This meant a lot to me. Thanks!"
Pros: "Amazing crew! Great food service!!"

Cons: "virtually everything was a unacceptable starting with the gate staff ..."
Pros: "ANA was awesome as usual."
Cons: "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible.

Cons: "the seats are not reclined, not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Crew was amazing.Premium economy seats were superb. Food was also good."

Pros: "the food was god. the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Wonderful food and service"
Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and attentive. Lavatory was kept clean. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "Missed my flight over a misscommunication on getting to the airport. Thete was not sufficient time to arrive more than an hour early due to the fact Gimpo airport opens at 6am and the flight was at 7:45. When I arrived I was not allowed to check in or board and no one wanted to help me find out what to do. They suggested I call my ticketing agent. Thankfully they were helpful but they mentioned the ANA SHOULD have helped me find the next available flight but the representative kept repeating it was not her job. Finally she looked and said there were no available flights and tried to push me to buy another ticket through another company. My ticketing agent helped after she heard what happened and rebooked my flight for the next day. Hopefully everything goes smoothly but ANA staff at Gimpo were a bit of a nightmare to deal with"
Cons: "Someone sat on my row without notifying the crew of the seat change. After I notified the FA of the incident... even if it's a general rule that the passenger sits at the ticketed seat, the FA didn't do anything about it"
Pros: "5 stars around"
Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."
