Same comments as before.

Food should be better. The service was good. The seat is comfortable.

JAL is one of the most professional & efficient airlines I’ve experienced. The food was very good: even in Economy! The entertainment interface needs some updating.

Seat are large and wide, as expected in premium economy. The shell seat makes reclining non-intrusive to others, it also eats in your own space but I find this a non issue due to the tremendous leg room (42”, even better than all other premium economy that I know of), be careful of the sliding mechanism as I nearly got stuff stuck inside, the seat belt is the airbag type, it also attaches to the shell so when you recline you have to loosen it. The seat itself is hard and the headrest is too high to support my neck, so expect to need lots of pillows to make yourself comfortable. Foot storage is ok and there is a gap to store more things between seats and between the seat and the window for window seats, which I find surprisingly useful. Footrest is too high and makes your legs hang above the legrest (good for them to include that too) so I didn’t use the foot rest. Lunch was supposedly a highlight but I find the sea food rice bland and there isn’t really much seafood to speak of. The small biscuit in the side dish is wet and disgusting. Cold spaghetti as a side dish is also weird. The breakfast served before landing was great, they call it “chewing” salmon and millet short pasta, and perfectly coincides the sunrise which makes for a amazing experience. Attendants picked the trays way too late which makes me unable to go out for a walk as all our tables is full of empty trays. Both meals comes with plentiful choices of beverages and amazingly, metal cutlery. Rice crackers tasted great. Snacks in the economy class gallery have little choices. Japanese style high tech toilets look stylish but for part of the flight, the drainage in one of the sink didn’t work. Also, it seems like there is only 2 bathrooms in the business class cabin so sometimes they come to use our toilets, still largely enough for us though, if business passengers didn’t come 2 bathrooms for the 40 seats premium cabin would be great. In later part of the trip we were flying quite low (33000-35000ft) and is somewhat turbulent, it looked like there is no clouds much above us so I wonder if we could have avoided some turbulence by flying higher. Wi-Fi was slightly expensive unless you have a connecting flight (I do but the wifi is broken in the previous leg), speed was good. I got lounge access even on premium economy, which elevated the experience a LOT. They provided a amenity kit with ear plugs, moisture mask, eye mask, tooth brush and toothpaste which is great. Noise canceling headphones is also provided but the active noise canceling was barely noticeable. Overall the experience is either ok or great, only bad part was the first meal.

Same as above

The airline wanted to charge me an additional $108.00 to check my second bag despite their policy stating that the first two checked bags are free. In order to not miss my flight, I had to leave one bag. Thankfully, I had enough room in my other bag and carry on to accommodate all my things.

Excellent!

All liked. It was very good 😊

Pros: "The level of care and attention that was given to my comfort during the flight was extraordinary. Also the economy was much better than any economy i've ever come to expect from other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding I didn't know at first where to go to get to the gate. Having to exit and then re-enter the airport was a pain and further complicated my boarding. But that was not JAL's fault and is on SFO."
Pros: "We traveled with our 1.5 year old and JAL was incredibly accommodating and made our trip very enjoyable. They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was smooth and provided impeccable service."
Pros: "none"
Cons: "very poor communication of information"
Pros: "This airline is efficient, polite, and has a great business class product. Seats are large and open. Easy to move into different positions. Tv is in readable large and clear with a mini screen in the remote. The food was outstanding. Waygu beef medium rare. Washrooms are the cleanest in the sky. Definite repeat!"
Pros: "Customer service was on point . Thanks Again !"
Pros: "I had to change my flight and it was a terrible experience, I will book directly with the airlines from now on."
Pros: "I was very surprised Japan Airlines staffs welcomed at boarding gate in Chubu Centrair,Nagoya with friendly smiles, chocolate and a mask for the upcoming flight. Also very comfortable seat, friendly crews during flight. One of the best flight !"
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous, spoke multiple languages, they came around multiple times to offer beverages, pilot/staff kept us informed about reason for delay to gate, arrived earlier than expected, usb charging available, bathroom was cleaned multiple times during flight, clean bathroom, and there were toothbrushes/sanitary pads available in the bathroom, and enjoyed that they had Haagen Daaz ice cream."
Cons: "The pocket in front had no room to put a drink/bottle. Food was relatively better compared to other airlines but okay. Movie selection was good but compared to other airlines has less."

Cons: "Plane was very hot"

Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
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: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"
Pros: "super comfortable seats, great food, huge monitor, non stop service for the 13 hours plus JFK-hnd new flight"
Cons: "Aisle seats not very private, remote control not intuitive to use"

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Beverage size could be more"
Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."
Pros: "leg space was better than with other companies"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined her seat entire fought crushing my knees and leaving NO legroom, couldn't even use foot rests!"

Pros: "Nice people, good food"
Cons: "Old-=fashioned business configuration"

Cons: "Outgoing plane was older and had stains on the chairs, walls, etc. But still comfortable."
Pros: "The space, the courtesy of the staff, the food. Loved the noodle breakfast."

Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything from check in till I got off the plane was fantastic. Friendly and helpful crew with impeccable service unlike a certain few airlines. Will definitely use JAL again!"
Cons: "Can't think of any"
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: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Customer service was awesome and the food was good"
Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."

Great

They wouldn’t let me board because Japan changed their entry policies and I did not get notified. Had to wait another day, pay rebooking fees and miss my family that I haven’t seen in 4 months. TERRIBLE!!

Food from Philippines to Japan was excellent but served a little late. Food from Japan to USA WAS LOUSY and they only served hot food one time for breakfast which means 2 hours away from arrival. Hot food meal should have been served 2 hours after boarding in an airport where everything ia closed after 9 pm. Some of the connecting passengers did not have a hot meal for at least 12 hours or maybe more.

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."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Well maintained plane, nice staff and over very comfortable."
Cons: "The wifi worked only 1 hr of the 3 hrs I bought"
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you I had to change 3 months ago. I won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic patient & I couldn’t get my aisle seat so, I had to wake up my both side passenger too often. Missing my Hindi movies."
Cons: "Siting at exit row gave more legroom thus more comfortable and more sleep. Disadvantage is that apurar must be stowed in bin overhead which is not within reach. It’s a bit of inconvenient and feeling insecure for important papers and $ inside."
Cons: "Old Aircraft Interior, could be more comfortable"
Cons: "Did not like emergency exit seat."
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: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Hard seats!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The food was really great! And the entertainment was fantastic! I would absolutely fly with them again the next time I book a trip."
Pros: "japanese airlines food is always better than u.s. airlines. service is also very courteous."
Cons: "disliked their entertainment system. no varieties in movies, and interface was a bit annoying as you could not see a visual menu of all movies and had to keep scrolling line by line to get to the next movie."
Pros: "Food is the best of any airline service"
Cons: "Boarding is done by a bus trip onto the tarmac, then you take the rolling stairs up into the plane. No in flight entertainment of any sort."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After they told about change my flight to Asiana I finally agreed but I had to walk by myself to Asiana, ANA couldnt at least to make the changes to avoid me long time to stand in line by asiana airlines. I would never recomend ANA"
Pros: "Food and services"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, good food. Standard flight as one would expect."
Pros: "Friendly crew... awesome entertainment. Good drinks and food, one of the best traveling experiences I had. Thank you!"
Cons: "Same repeating music"
Pros: "Great service by the crew! Excellent food and flight was on time,"
Cons: "Film and movie offerings and music entertainment while on board should be improved with more selections."
Pros: "The entertainment touch screen didn't work at first, but mentioned it to a crew, it was rebooted right away and worked fine after all. Thank you."
Pros: "As my other flights with them, the crew is so friendly, the planes are nice and pretty good movie selection. Also nicely organized and they apologized profusely for the hour delay. I wish all of the American airline companies would learn from them! Great beverage service too, even when people are sleeping they quietly come around for us who are awake."
Cons: "The food for vegetarians is not very good. But they feed you a lot and you won't go hungry!"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Stewardess always came back with what they promised to bring. Premium economy seating was very good."
Cons: "Food could be better. Entertainment was somewhat limited. The older plane on one leg meant no wifi and no noise-cancelling headset"
Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."
Pros: "Nice smile and service. Food is good as well"
Cons: "Arrived later than schedule"
Pros: "short flight ready to get home"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable planes. On time flights."
Cons: "I accidentally left an external battery in my check in bag and they stopped me to open my bag and remove it as I was boarding. This is obviously my fault but I wish they had called me up earlier to not disrupt the other passagers and slow the boarding process."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, very friendly staff."
Pros: "Crew attentiveness; relative comfort (could be better - but I've had worse); variety of movies"
Cons: "I'd like greater variety in food choices"
Pros: "I slept through the flight from take off to landing."
Cons: "The cranky infant a few rows behind."
Pros: "The ANA crew were very sweet and accommodating"
Cons: "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX. Seat selected at time of booking was not honored since selection has to be done on United Air's web site. Did not get the meal I ordered for the same reason. Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."
Pros: "I love this airline! The flight attendants are so polite and cute and the whole ride was a great experience."
Pros: "Love everthing."
Pros: "Customer Service"
Pros: "The big screen Tvs"
Cons: "Well, I have the fear of buying ANA air tickets because the previous one, it was United instead. Horrible horrible horrible"
Pros: "Love the staff, helpful and polite!"
Pros: "There was a delay"
Cons: "The flight attendent name Yoka asked me what I want to eat??? But She give my food to someone else, and rold me they do not have it anymore."
Cons: "kayak should let you know when buying the ticket that the first portion of the flight codeshare with united express doesn't cover a second bag I called ANA they said i could bring two so I did but I was charged 100 dollars for it even though it was an international flight with ANA also united express shattered the outside of one of my checked bags so I paid 100 dollars to get a 50 dollar suitcase BROKEN UNITED won't respond to my inquiries. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"
Pros: "Flight attendant Lee-san is amazing and kind. I was feeling really stressed and having a panic attack. She brought me tea and comforted me. I am so thankful for her kindness."
Cons: "Internet is way too expensive and barely works."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."
Pros: "My son can not eat peanuts, I am so happy you offer the peanut free meals. And ANA always have good sevice."
Pros: "I liked the food and the personal television you get. You can play video games on it which was cool."
Cons: "The wifi cost $20 for the whole flight. Pretty expensive compared to other airlines!"
Pros: "The padding seems inadequate especially for medium and long hauls. It hurts sitting in the seats after 2 hours into the fight."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "When I went to counter to get my seat assignment I was offered 25,000 yen to take a later flight because mine was overbooked. I agreed and began notifying my transportation at my final destination when I was told nevermind, space was no longer needed. This was aggrevating."

Though service level by Singapore airlines are better,There are bad experiences with Scoot airlines. Luggages of both of us not sent along with passengers and there is zero communication from the crew and after arriving destination we have run post to pillar by wasting hours. Thomas John Valsa Thomas

SingaporeAir premium economy makes an 18-hour flight bearable The cabin crew was very attentive The food was above average. The entertainment options were very good.

Food was tired and tasteless. In past, pre COVID, out of Singapore, in-flight food was fresh and tasty.

Service was very attentive. I thought that being in premium econ seat means that I get the headphones, but on this flight, none was provided. Thankfully, the flight attendant quickly gave me a new pair of earphones.

Klll

Friendly staff, excellent food, a whole lot of good choices for onboard entertainment, comfortable ride, and good legroom even in the economy.

Food could have been better. Entertainment was the same during both June and July. It could have been changed.

Was very comfortable and enjoyable, can't think of anything else to improve - thank you.

Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"
Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Everything is perfect, the crew services are very warm and professional, I strongly believe that Singapore airlines is the best in world as I tried many airlines but I don’t see like their them, I will strongly recommend and I will be their customer for any flight to Far East inshaallah."
Cons: "I recommend if they can provide paid massage service ( not complementary)at the suits class for long trip because there’s enough space to do it , I’m very glad to congratulate them for the level of service they reached ."
Pros: "They were very generous with food and drinks. It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Our seats were uncomfortable. We did not like sitting on the front row three deep. We would have preferred the extra legroom seats we had on the 1st flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and we've had better on Singapore Airlines before."
Cons: "flight on time. flight was delayed and gate changed"
Cons: "The lunch part at the end was a little late we had just had a snack and a small sandwich so we didn't eat a lot. But food was great!"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Cons: "Satisfied service friendly staff overall satisfied."
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Boarding needs better management."
Cons: "Seat space could be wider for working"
Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Pros: "The Staff was very friendly."
Pros: "We love Singapore Airlines, seriously it's not hard, you just have staff that care, clean comfortable air craft, good inflight entertainment. Are you listening American and British Airways?"
Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"
Cons: "I have to drive from DFW to IAH, I wish Singapore would take over from American and British Air at DFW, honestly Singapore is cheaper, better service, nicer ground and in flight teams. It's worth the extra drive to travel with people that actually care"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"
Pros: "AMAZING IN EVERY WAY. PLANES ARE OUTSTANDING SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING INFLIGHT STAFF ARE EXTREMELY POLITE AND FRIENDLY AND ELEGANT!:)) AIRPORT IS SUPERB THIS IS MY FAVORITE AIRLINE!"
Cons: "THE WEBSITE LISTS PRICES IN SINGAPORE DOLLARS AND IT IS ONLY IN THE FINAL STAGES OF A BOOKING IS ONE TOLD WHAT THE US $ PRICE IS. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE. WHEN YOU CALL SINGAPORE AIRLINES THERE ARE VERY LONG WAIT TIMES."
Pros: "Foot rest, large movie screen, good food"
Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."
Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "The presence and attitude of the flight attendants were highly pleasant and accommodating. The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger. When I had trouble connecting to the Wifi, one attendant even knelt down and connected my phone manually as I was not tech savvy in this regard. The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."
Cons: "Really the only issue was there was a 2 hour delay on departure, however this was due to issues out of control of the airline and I did not mind as the airline's ambience and my experience with it overshadowed any delays."
Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."
Pros: "The entrainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Aircond isn’t working at seat 60 onwards. Warm. Sweaty."
Pros: "Awesome comfort, infotainment, service and food. Was amazed at the value for an economy flight - much better than BA & United in every way."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Loved the crew. Really helpful."
Cons: "1) while boarding you should keep families with kids (at least till 6yrs of age or with disabilities) prior to other people... 2) food was ok ok"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff, the food and overall the experience."
Cons: "That our bags weren't check in all the way to SEA"
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: "Just a generic flight. Had nice movies but nothing special."
Cons: "I felt very cramped and though it's nothing with the airline I had 2 crying babies right near me during the flight."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Equipment rather poor, screen isn't very clear, hard to read subtitles."
Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"
Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."
Pros: "Everything is suport wonderful"
Cons: "Price. it's better"
Pros: "The SIA crew is the most gentle and careful I have ever encountered."
Cons: "The food is below average. The quantity is OK but the choices/taste in not matching the best airlines."
Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."
Cons: "We were unable to use the website to check-in online, which meant we had to fly to Manchester to check-in. Which is very poor given modern technology. (We were able to check in on line for the flight from Houston)"
Pros: "the service on the flight was the best I can ever recall having."
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "Flight arrived earlier than expected and the flight attendants were good and polite."
Pros: "Had a row to myself to stretch out. Not crowded, no wait for bathrooms. I like the warm washcloths after we settled in and before meals. Plenty of blankets and pillows."
Cons: "Food was ok, not super high quality."
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "There should always be a vegetarian option on the set menu. I didn't realise I would need to pre order my meal for this."

Everything was excellent

Better boarding system than just 4 zones. Within each zone, boarding needs to be done with specific rows at a time.

More Bollywood and Telugu movies, food options

My luggage was left at doha nd flight landed houston. Horrible experince i had this time.

Please refer to comments on previous flight.

The three people behind us continued kicking our seats and after two attempts to resolve, they got aggressive and loud. Very uncomfortable and frustrating for 15 hours flying.

Just a hassle since this flight was long and all I wanted to do was get some rest."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "I requested a chicken meal and I told the steward that I would wait because he did not have anymore at that moment. He never came back until it was time to pick up trash. I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

Pros: "Excellent travel with Qatar Airways"

Pros: "the best air line I've ever been"
Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."

Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "It’s difficult to choose what part of the flight was the best, but the overall experience will make me come back for more. The check-in process took very little time. The flight staff was friendly and courteous and had a smile throughout the flight. The lighting was so much brighter than with the first and second legs of my flight and the plane was very clean, to the point where one could eat off the floor. the in-flight entertainment, clothes rack, charger, and remote controller were all right in front of you instead of being tucked in by your side. The food quality was savory and refreshing. I should have asked for a second meal as it was that good even for a short economy flight."
Cons: "the salad and desserts were excellent, as was the chicken and rice, but I would have appreciated a choice for my main menu selection."
Pros: "Same great staff"
Cons: "Flight pulled away from gate and sat for nearly three hours. Bags did not make it onto flight. Seats suck."

Pros: "Having a full meal on a short (2 hour) flight was a nice surprise."
Cons: "When we landed in Tokyo, didn't have a gate and had to ride a bus back to the terminal. I haven't had to deplane outside since the 70's."
Pros: "The leg room and comfort of the seat were noticeably different from other airlines. I enjoyed this flight on the 777 much better than my return flight on an A330."
Cons: "The screen for the individual entertainment system was extremely small. The one on the A330 was much bigger and better. Also, the limited choices of in-flight entertainment were disappointing."
Pros: "I have flown to china and back on this airline twice now. It is a very good airline. Flights were on time, and service was great. I would recommend it to everyone. My daughter just flew from china to here on it and she had a great trip."

Pros: "The staff are nice and friendly and courteous. Food is pretty good too."
Pros: "I loved that I had plenty of space to stretch my long legs. Also, there was enough space between the seat in front of me even when they were in reclined position. Nothing was too close in my face."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Everything it was great experience flying with asiana"
Cons: "Crew was very attentive"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. Food ok"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The food was good the staff pleasant and professional, for an airplane seemed to be clean. Everyone has their own personal entertainment screens. Food was pretty decent, better than I have ever had on a domestic US flight. Staff always seemed to appear happy and satisfied with their job/work; service with a smile."
Cons: "I found that unlike my SEA to Seoul flight, the staff on this 9 hour flight only brought drinks around during meal time; or you had to specifically call a staff member to get a drink. I really appreciated the first flight staff that took care to bring drinks around more often without needing to call on them. They seem very stingy with carry on items. Other than that, it was a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Delayed flight for almost two hours while all passengers were already inside the plane( korea to manila) . So hot inside the plane, no air condition, no food, no comfort measures given to passengers. They should have not let passengers to board knowing that there is mechanical problem. It would have been more comfortable if passenger just waited at the airport gate."

Pros: "Metal utincils"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Wine was awful."
Pros: "I like how they gave us an empty seat in the middle."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "IN flight attendants are great, always willing to help and with a smile."
Cons: "I can see the airline growing ans some of the perks disappearing."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Korean dish options and having metal silverware was a nice touch. The cabin crew was very attentive and friendly throughout the flight. The legroom was pretty good for a coach seat."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little chaotic. There was a gate change at Pudong Airport and we had to leave from a lower level gate which involves bus ride to the plane. And there was a long wait after the initial bus until further busses came. Then we stayed on the ground for quite a while until we were allowed to take off, maybe one hour or more late."
Pros: "Easy to switch flights"
Pros: "There was no water bottle provided during about 5 hours flight after the dinner service. Although the fly attendants are always ready to help, I hope the Asiana Airlines would cater more to customers' needs and think more considerably."
