Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Tickets were in the wrong name and the company that issued them refused to fix the problem. I ended up buying a second ticket directly from the airlines."
Pros: "People were friendly - from check in right through to disembarkment."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Tight seating."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My 12 hrs layover in Japan."
Pros: "The seating on this plane was super spacious and comfortable- leg and seats. Also the seatbelt gave real room. The plane was cleaned; crew friendly, food delicious- featuring semi- famous chefs and well ventilated."
Cons: "Flights should enter from back to front that way you're not waking over people to get your seat.-"
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown."
Pros: "I had to change my flight and it was a terrible experience, I will book directly with the airlines from now on."
Cons: "Delayed flight that cost most passangers their next flights, incredibly stressful. Upon arriving to Chicago there was a problem lining up the exit ramp to the boarding craft and it took a very long time to correct the situation."
Pros: "Ms Yoshinaga went out of her way to make sure everything was smooth for my experience."
Pros: "The service, more leg rooms and flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Great tasting food, and nearly constant beverage service."
Pros: "Boarding procedure was the most efficient I have ever seen for a 777. Very quick and efficient, back to front. Great food. Very polite and efficient crew. Plenty of leg room in coach. Comfortable seat configuration, with only three seats in center section. JAL is a great airline!"
Pros: "The small plane from Toronto to Chicago was operated by American Eagle. The airplane is a small. I do not have leg room, but overall it was a decent flight."
Cons: "Small airplane"
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."
Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."
Pros: "This was an AA flight.I never expect excellent service from AA."
Pros: "Flight attendants were super helpful and lovely, couldn't have asked for better. Very pleasant experience. Plane was clean and tidy and they arranged us all so the majority of us had a spare seat in the middle which I'm sure everyone appreciated."
Pros: "Everything about the Japan air portion of our trip was excellent."
Cons: "No problems whatsoever."
Pros: "The Japanese culuture all in all is amazing, the Jap Airlines was no exception. The flight attendants were so nice and beautiful as well."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, the staff were friendly"
Cons: "we requested for halal food when we booked the flight, but they brought us the normal food which we couldn't eat"

Pros: "Very comfortable, good movie/entertainment choices, great crew"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight service and attendants. The attendants were always respectful and smiling...."
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: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. Overall it was as good as a 12 hour economy flight can go."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "The staff took pride in providing excellent service from check in till landing."
Cons: "Still paying for wifi in 2016"
Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."
Cons: "Remarkably the one issue on this wonderful business class seat was a limited area of storage for small items, most significantly a lack of a pocket for a cell phone by the USB port. Also the armrest didn't rise when the seat was in upright mode."
Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."
Pros: "More leg room in Japan airlines. I decided to use JAL as much as possible. Stewardess are all nice and very attentive."
Cons: "Food is ok, but way so much better compared to the other airlines. The chair is not as comfortable (hard to sit) , but more leg room is a good advantage."
Cons: "I ordered Hindu vegeterian meal while coming to Chicago on phone with Japan Airline I got Asian veg food"
Pros: "An airline that thinks about consumers and then delivers a premier experience. Fly no one else to or from Japan."
Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"
Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"
Cons: "Chair is way too hard."
Cons: "Only 30 people were not priority boarding (including me). Not being Japanese makes you a second class citizen on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the sevices, food & entertainment were great. On 777 airliner, private entertainment system with wide movie selection. Seats have AC outlet and USB charging outlet."
Pros: "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing actually"
Pros: "A quiet, quick and on time flight in a small plane with a competent crew - just as expected!"
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating super friendly."
Cons: "The food . I had a stomach ache with one of the salmon(raw) salad. It was horrible!"
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: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."
Pros: "Everything was so good. flight attendants were great. plane wasn't full so there were empty seats. plane was super clean and nice. can't recommend them enough."
Cons: "food was only decent, but it's probably just my personal taste"
Pros: "Boarding at Narita was excellent. Comfort in Economy isn't great, although as expected. The food was good, the crew excellent."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was good."
Pros: "The seat is very comfotable. But on the fright from Japan to Bangkok very upset me and my husband. We sat seperated, but on the plane we saw 2 seats available, I asked woman crew that can we move to that seats. She went to talk with the guy who sat on the aisle seat. I heard he said he reserved"
Cons: "The seat beside him for his friend. And the crew said to me she so sorry I couldn't move to sit with my husband. But later no body beside him and he lay down 3 seats all the way. And the crew do nothing for us. We very dissapointed."
Cons: "the seats are not reclined, not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
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: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best."
Pros: "I like the service. I love the food,"
Cons: "Nothing for complaining, everything is good"
Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. Seems there is no way to adjust temperature /individual air flow on a 777-300."
Pros: "The service was exceptional"
Cons: "I was seated at the exit isle, ample of leg room, but the seats were very narrow. I barely fit into the seats. I noticed the seats behind had smaller arm rests so they had more space. The movies on board need upgrade."
Pros: "Staff Many empty seats"
Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was good didn’t hate anything"
Cons: "1. Missed our flight connection in Chicago because of delayed take-off from Tokyo. We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later. 2. ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and exceptionally polite and attentive. Possibly the best I have encountered on an international flight."
Pros: "crew and food was great"
Cons: "seat cushion was a bit on the dead side I found myself trying to figure how to fit as many folks in the same space more comfortably. Maybe swapping every other seat to face backward so we have more arm / shoulder room? Idk"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Again I had a problem with water bottle, I asked small water bottle but they didnt give me one and i asked if they can fill my 2,5 yo water bottle they only fill it half. I asked again for water hours later and they said I need to wait because they will serve dinner (which is 30mins later) This is just very unpleasant experience and I felt like a bad person asking for only water"
Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."
Pros: "Customer service on ANA was as stellar as always."
Cons: "Chairs are uncomfortably small for an international flight. Was fairly surprised since it's such a long flight."
Pros: "crew very helpful from check in to deplane..i would suggest when arranging seat for couples or mother abd child make sure its to gether at first check in not later at another airport which was fine they did in manila..but from chicago they cant do it have to wait in japan and almost not done"
Cons: "the smell inside the airplane"
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: "On time. Flight attendants don't shy away from helping passengers put their carryons in the cabin compartments. They were there in a split seconf to assist you - ANA flight attendants only. Food was great in ANA airlines. Toilet is clean. Boardinh was orderly."
Cons: "More frequent offer of drinks to passengers"
Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "It was way to hot on the plane, I actually couldn't even sleep because I was sweating so much. They give out blankets so I would think it would skew to the cool side so people can adjust themselves. Nothing you can do when it is too hot other than suffer."
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"
Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"
Pros: "The ANA stuff at Chicago airport is nice and helpful"
Cons: "My mom has to stay seated "90 degree" the whole time from Tokyo to Chicago (NH12). The seat is broken and she cannot adjust it to a comfortable position"
Pros: "The room and comfort in the larger planes and the crew is always outstanding on ANA."
Cons: "More movie selection....... many are Asian movies which are of poor quality. More food selections. I really don't care for most Asian dishes and I starve on these flights."
Pros: "Good experience. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "The stewardess are the most polite and helpful I've travelled with"
Cons: "We didn't hear the announcement that the gate for our flight had changed. I just happened to look at the flight info and noticed our flight was not listed. I went to the desk then I was informed of the change. Poor service."
Pros: "leg room; extra seat between us"
Pros: "Nice crew, clean lavatory"
Cons: "Had a chance to select seats only for return flight Seats were too narrow"
Cons: "Nippon kept the planes uncomfortably warm. Also, we were not in an exit row, but our seats still didn't recline."
Pros: "As long as I didn't fly on united"
Pros: "Great service, accommodating staff. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight. Plenty of leg room in economy section. Attendants polite, helpful and made you feel like you their valued customer. Would fly ANA again when traveling their routes."
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent. Meals were perfectly portioned and delicious!!!"
Pros: "Whenever given the choice, I choose United flights operated by ANA over thiose operated by United because the ANA planes are generally newer, cleaner, have far superior on board entertainment (important for 12 hour flights) food is better and crew is more responsive/ solicitous."
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Cons: "Flight were shaking badly several times and I feel dizzy"
Pros: "pleasant service. no surprises, delays , etc. thank you."
Cons: "why would they call it a 'hindu meal' if it includes meat?! pilot & crew a bit hard to understand when they spoke english - thick accent."
Pros: "The ANA crew is always exceptional. Drinks and food are constantly being provided and the crew routinely walks about the cabin to ensure passenger needs are being met."
Cons: "For some reason, other countries do not use a number system when boarding. This often means if you're not paying attention, you could be the last to board the aircraft because a line will form almost out of thin air. Minor issue, but a systematic boarding procedure would be good."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight attendants. The food were decent. The snacks through the flight were very good."
Cons: "The limited entertainment. Some of the Japanese TV drama doesnt have English substitle."
Pros: "Cabin crew provided great service!"
Pros: "The food was great. Very responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Could have been slightly cooler in the cabin."
Cons: "This was a United Airlines flight. The crew were not very friendly. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight took off a little early!!"
Pros: "Hello kitty everything!"
Cons: "Have no recommendations...everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat. I purchased a seat with more leg room but didn’t know that exit seats don’t have the same width as other seats so my hips were in the seat tight. I wish I would’ve known this before I bought the extra legroom."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and plane was on time. Food was good and also had various snacks in between meals. One of the things I liked most was that they had nitenacks in the restroom."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Very attentive and friendly. Food was better than expected. Seating (premium economy) was very comfortable."
Pros: "Comfy seats (no need for pillow), large touch screen, generally clean"
Cons: "Better food. I love airplane meals and been on many different airlines and sad to say, eva air has the worst food out of all of them"
Pros: "The price. The staff was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Free food!"
Pros: "The crew was very good at serving the meal. The crew did a great job telling passengers to get back in their seats when they were standing up while we were on the run way after landing."
Pros: "Crew was great and food was good toom"
Cons: "Might be out of your control but the turbulence got pretty rough at times and was alot more than any of my flights I've been on."
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "Very accomodating crew. One of the nicer airlines I’ve flown on. Newer, well maintained clean aircraft."
Pros: "EVA Air is an excellent overall airline."
Pros: "Being able to check bags and get boarding pass at Taipei Main station prior to boarding MRT (similar to Hong Kong) is a very useful convenience. EVA staff there were extremely pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "EVA Air has just got it figured out, solid from boarding to departure"
Cons: "Faster airplanes, or I could pick shorter trips"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight, many amenities included. Meals were excellent. Hospitality was exceptionable."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full and we could spread out. Food was fine."
Pros: "Flight left on time , flight attendants made the flight great"
Pros: "Was a way home. Bathroom clean"
Cons: "Food was terrible. I’ve flown with Eva many times but the food is worse than ever. If your Chinese you can put seat back in meal service but if not Chinese must obey rules. The entertainment has very little to offer for such a long flight. So board. The seat is very uncomfortable and deflated seat is painful to my back. Flight overbooked in economy and many seats available elsewhere, they should offer for a little more money but leave empty while everyone is crammed like sardines"
Pros: "I like the whole round trip flight. from smooth and fast boarding process to big leg room for my premium economy seat. Food are good with 2 choises and staff are pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing I don’t like"
Pros: "Feeling much better than others"
Pros: "plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "the second meal options were not to my liking. I chose Pasta, but i did NOT like the pasta meal: Too much pasta, not enough chicken."
Pros: "My roundtrip flight from Chicago to Bangkok was excellent for many reasons. First, my flight from Cleveland was delayed, and the EVA crew was quick to communicate with me and be sure to get me to the gate so I didn't miss the flight. The staff were all very kind, helpful, competent, professional. The airplane was very clean, very efficient, good meals, good entertainment. Excellent airline. I'll be flying with them regularly!"
Pros: "Great crew, impressive washrooms, food was wholesome and warm"
Cons: "My friend had a long wait in line to get her boarding pass. She was denied at the counter to fly due to there being 40 minutes until her board time. She was not checking bags, and the security line was a walk through. But they would not issue her a ticket, cancelled her international flight, AND her return flight. She had to buy an entire new round trip international flight...All the while her plane was still on the ground...This did not make sense to me. This does not make sense to anyone I explain the story to, either. Your counters truly are always long waits. It was her fault she didn't leave enough time. But the lack of flexibility in rebooking and the inability to still use her return flight home? WHY."
Pros: "Everything about my flights.."
Cons: "None.. they were very acoomodating of my request esp my seats"
Pros: "I liked that the Airline was very accommodating in arranging an alternate flight for me, after they caused me to miss my Connecting flight in Taipei, due to the delay in Hong Kong. I didn't mind being redirected through Seattle first, and then on to Chicago, but. . . . ."
Cons: "The 1hr, 40 minute delay in Hong Kong ended up costing me 11 hours of additional travel time to reach my final destination. The Airline arranged for the last leg of my flight to Chicago from Seattle to be on a different Airline, and it wasn't so comfortable. Arrangements were made by the airline in Taipei for my flight out of Chicago for me also, but with a 4 hours layover and on a "Standby" condition. This I didn't understand because there was a much earlier flight leaving Chicago on this same airline and it wasn't full. Staff at the ticket counter did eventually correct it to the earlier flight for me."
Pros: "I Like the AirPlane d staff but not d food.There food should needs improvements it looks ordinary."
Cons: "Absolutely their “FooD” a lot of riders or my friends & family complains their food."

Pros: "Flight attendants very nice."
Cons: "Old movies. Need more drink service on 14 hour flight."
Pros: "I don't have kids, other people do. The attendants give each child a play package to keep them busy and bring out their food early to keep them from making a fuss. There's more than enough to keep adults busy; movies, games, shows, food"
Pros: "Overall good flight. You get what you pay for. Staff was wonderful."

Cons: "Sitting for 15 hrs"
Pros: "Crew attention to detail, comfort, food, overall experience, clean restrooms"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and attentive especially to the older passengers"

Cons: "Misdirected at upper entrance."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"

Pros: "The seat space, and the ability to recline the seat was surprising."
Cons: "It is what it is."
Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "Plane from Hong Kong to Chicago was full but the crew did their best to meet everyone's needs. The food was very good."
Cons: "Tried to check in online but the system would not allow me to submit my data. So check-in was not as smooth as it could be."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive and great service. Wonderful flat bed seats"
Cons: "The economy toilets were in a disgusting state half-way through the flight and a hostess told me not use Business Class toilets even though I was in Premoum Economy. The economy toilet was clearly a health hazard. Also, we were woken up for our 2nd meal 6 hours into the flight , with 8 hours to go"
Pros: "flight attendants were very sweet."
Cons: "Food, late both from and back ways."
Pros: "Except for one time service everything else is good"
Cons: "Staff forgot what I have asked for boarding could have been done using zones."
Pros: "Boarding was swift"
Cons: "Crew was indifferent and cold in their service. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Good customer service."
Cons: "Could have used one more snack and more water although should have maybe asked. Dinner was good though."
Pros: "The movie selection + the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There were kids who were not well behaved. Their parents would not correct them, neither did the crew. There was a kid screaming and talking very loud behind me, while everyone was sleeping. I was unable to sleep on the flight, even with ear plugs. The kid sitting next to me was getting Play-doh everywhere, on me, the floor and all over the seats. He was also kicking the seat in front of him and his mother would not correct him. It would be helpful for the crew to say something to the parents, as some parents do not believe in discipline. The vegan food was very good on the flight to Hong Kong, but on the flight to Chicago it was bland. I was still very hungry after eating + did not get protein in the first meal. With the seat in front of me reclined all the way back, my knees were touching the back of the seat, my legs were swollen and in a lot of pain after the flight."
Cons: "Cancelation process was too poor customer service was also too poor. And high cancellation fee. Customer service representatives did not tell me when I am going get the money back and also weather my ticket is also canceled or not."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "We were sitting at te back and it was very cold. Not sure why. They ran out of chicken for lunch."
Pros: "Efficient service."
Cons: "The sound jack on my seat was dysfunctional and the sound kept cutting out unless I had my hand on the jack for 12 hours. It was CX806 flight."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Pros: "I love the food, service and comfort I want make sure to fly with Cathay Pacific in my future flights. It’s all excellent! And I will probably recommend it to my family and friends."
Cons: "Lacking in inflight service after mid flight. Leaving 7 hours of nothing! So you arrive hungry both ways."
Pros: "I liked the movie selection they had for entertainment—many choices. Most of the staff were very friendly, but there was a bit of a language barrier which made it a little difficult to ask for something. They are also attentive, so if you press your call button, you don’t have to wait half an hour until someone helps you."
Cons: "Most of the meals were awful. I barely ate on the flights (except the dessert), but how good can airplane food be really... The seats are pretty tight and uncomfortable. They are too upright, making it very difficult to sleep. On one of their planes, the seats didn’t recline at all. I recommend paying a bit more for extra leg room ($150) or flying business or first class even (for long flights)."
Pros: "As usual, the crew was great and the planes and pilots are great also. CP is always punctual, as well."
Cons: "I'm 6-4 , so I enjoy any extra space I can get. For this reason, I like the CP planes that seem to have more space than competitors. However, when the person in front of me reclines for the ENTIRE flight, my screen is too low to watch, I cannot use my try to eat and its like having someone laying in your lap.........it should not be allowed ( reclining)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for one hour."
Pros: "Flight staff was awesome. They were all so thoughtful and extremely positive. It made a long trip so much more enjoyable!"
Cons: "Nothing! Super pleasant experience"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and attentive."
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
Pros: "The crew was very organized. I travelled with a wheel chair assist friend, they made sure we were comfortable. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The food choices are well thought off. My only concern is the tenderness of the beef."
Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "The bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."
Pros: "The tv had decent selection. Crew were nice. Priced good"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic, after standing in line then they call for other rows and my place in line didn't matter it was a free for all rushing to get in line. No water.....they took my water and have high blood pressure so need water and they don't give enough. Food is mediocre"
Pros: "Good flight. Crew busy but pleasant."
Cons: "Difficulty hearing announcements - I have a hearing deficit - so it was hard to know what was going on. Wish there was a coffee/tea service before landing after 15-hour flight to Chicago. Crew kept windows dark until 1/2 hour before landing."
Pros: "I like most of everything from this airline, Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "bathrooms should be cleaned more often"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "We really appreciated the nice customer service we received from the check in desk!! We were able to upgrade and get our seats together- thank you! Also Cathay Pacific gave us our boarding passes straight through to our final destination which made it possible for us to narrowly make our flight once we were in Chicago. Very grateful for this."
Cons: "Our airplane had technical problems and our flight left 2 hours late, which made it very tight to make our connection in Chicago. This was very hard. We just wish that the delay hadn't been so long."
Pros: "Most comfortable bed... slept almost 7 hours on the flight. Food, service and everything else was excellent..."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of... They had it all covered."
Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Amazing flight! Continue to serve pleasantly to all passengers"
Pros: "It was a typical economy flight. Very long and nothing spectacular or terrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed extremely frantic. They need to relax. I know it was lot of people to take care of but do things to make it easier. Don't let people bring 2 large bags EACH onto flights. Bring a garbage bag around instead of a tiny 5 inch X 5 inch tray when you are collecting 100s? of people's garbage. When departing a plane, I never have seen so much trash and nonsense all over the floor. Bringing a garbage bag around would definitely eliminate a majority of that, the tray was extremely impractical for such a large amount of passengers."
Cons: "Really uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "It was a packed flight and I had the window seat, but I remained seated the entire time.. The selection of entertainment was awesome.."
Cons: "the long flight.."
Pros: "GOOD !!!"
Cons: "The food was garbage and almost not edible . I would feel guilty feeding it to my dog. Even the peanuts sucked"
Pros: "Excellent services! With mileage credit, seat selection, on time departure, baggage allowance, food, wine entertainment and more, why taking budget airlines again? Truly a wonderful experience for this family trip!"
Pros: "I've taken other long-haul flights where it seems the flight attendants were serving food or drinks every couple of hours, leaving little time to sleep peacefully. But the Cathay staff, I think, balanced it well. Over 15 hrs, I was only woken up 2-3x for food. Was nice to be able to sleep without being disturbed too much."
Cons: "Way too cramped in the economy section. I'm a small guy, but even for me it was cramped."
Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"
Pros: "Terrific first class and business club in Hong Kong. Great flight crew. Everything else also excellent. Keep up the excellent work."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was running late due to weather and Cathay pacific airlines were waiting for us at security to take us to the airplane that was waiting ! Wow ! Amazing service!!! So grateful for their amazing kindness !!!"
Pros: "The service was outstanding, the food actually tasted good, and not "good for airline food," just good. The seats were comfortable; lots of entertainment options and boarding was run super efficiently. I'd fly this airline anytime."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "First and international flight - the seats are cramped, the meals are extremely 'blan' and the entertainment selection was not very good."
Cons: "Needs more leg room"
Pros: "Everything was good I didn't have any complaints about the service or flight time"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "The food was exceptional! I’d order it again at a restaurant if I could!"
Cons: "Still normal awkward/tight economy seat. It’s to be expected but the coat hook and free slippers make it better than a lot of other airlines."
Pros: "live tv, watched the formula one race"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, and the side panel at my feet was broken off and i could see through the floor of the plane"
Pros: "Professional crew, Good service , comfortable seating, fine entertainment."
Cons: "First time traveling abroad, it was a unique experience and a learning one."
Pros: "Good crew and amazing always ask if anything I needed."
Cons: "Had issues with specials meals requests. Was unable to get what was requested told both on originating flight, and returning light that its had not been loaded but the request wasn't there.."
Pros: "Delta refused to let us reserve a bassinet seat, and kept telling us to ask them later. They ultimately were not able to to provide one. They were the least accommodating of all the airlines we have asked."
Cons: "Better customer service."
Pros: "No problems. Service was great and we got there slightly faster than anticipated"
Cons: "Flight duration but that’s impossible to change so other than that nothing :)"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Pros: "Seat comfortable and amazing crew"
Cons: "Choice of movies somewhat limited"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Boarding: c'mon...too many groups and subgroups. Radiculous!"
Cons: "STOP the non-sense of so many boarding goups. What happened to Common Sense boarding? Ill and needing add'l medical help, First Class, Plus Class, then General Boarding. Give me a Break with all the other subgoups for Delta, all B. S. !!"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Pros: "Nice to have more room in the premium economy section."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the crew and no help when asked. I don't expect Asian-style grace and class from an American airline, but I do expect good old-fashioned American friendliness, and there wasn't even that. Also hate the all-darkened cabin in the daytime."
Pros: "Delta Premium Economy (or whatever it's called) is definitely a step up. Food is pretty good and seats leave more room, so you don't feel crunched."
Cons: "First seat (no chance to put thngs underneath seat in front) MUST have a real space (as even economy generally has). There was a small pouch that would fit almost nothing. Staff was poor. Never a smile or friendliness from flight attendant and no help when asked."
Pros: "Not crews fault that DELTA changed my flight at last minute!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Business class seats were short whdn lay flat. Metal footrest at the end made it uncomfortable to hang feet off the end. Little privacy"
Pros: "Free movies available in-flight"
Cons: "temperature during flight. Freezing then hot, freezing then hot and never a comfortable temp. Food was terrible. Entrees were flavorless and smelled terrible. Time they served food made no sense at all either. Within the hour of getting on the plane, they served a meal which made no sense because most folks ate before getting on the plane. Stewardesses were not friendly (only 1 made me feel valued and welcomed)"
Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Boarding is about the only thing I liked."
Cons: "This was a 2 layover rebooking of a one layover flight, which was late (I would be missing my connection). I asked an Air France rep in Japan to assign me an exit row seat (it’s a 14 hrs flight and I am almost 6 ft tall). She showed me the plane diagram and picked a seat, but when I arrived it turned out I was in a row directly behind. WiFi did not worked and the flight attendant said “they could not do anything” My film was interrupted twice (with a random film drubbed in Korean) and had to be reset manually Food was not great (and menues are identical on all delta flights - this was my 5th delta flight in the course of one week), the snack in particular (leek and mushroom cream soup-like mass wrapped in a tortilla - who ever thought of this? And one of the flight attendants was aloof and snappy."
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."
Pros: "Attendants very friendly and helpful. Greeted everyone with a smile and a pleasant voice. One woman was having a very hard time. She evidently was afraid to fly and wanted to get off the plane. The attendants were very kind to her, spent time with her and informed the pilot. The pilot made several comments using her name making sure she knew every time we were about to run into some turbulence. I thought that was very kind."
Cons: "Sometimes very hard to hear the instructions and the pilot when they are speaking. Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "All was great"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Very comfortable seat and nice boarding and exit."
Cons: "Not clear at all on what was complimentary, etc. Had a very large man next to me, practically sharing my seat so getting any needed work done was out of the question unfortunately."
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crowded waiting area and plane. Awful on plane!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth and quick."
Cons: "Gate change and departure time change not reflected properly on boarding pass. Problems with gogo in Flight."
Pros: "Be nice if the first plane had worked. Almost one hour late leaving ATL."
Pros: "The food is delicious and there are healthy choices, the staff helped me put my carry on into the overhead bin, which was super helpful because I'm only 5ft tall"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was not that good. They had some new movies but nothing you could turn your brain off to. The selection on my second 50 minute flight with delta had more options and variety than my 14 hour korean air one..."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was so short there was no food , drink or entertainment."
Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "I love that I was upgraded to first class!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."
Pros: "Row to myself"
