Excellent service and food onboard! Thank you, ANA!

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!!

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: "japanese airlines food is always better than u.s. airlines. service is also very courteous."

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.

Over all good experience.

Great service

Pleasant experience.

I already. Have given detail previously I donot wher this mishap happened

Economy seats are smaller compared to other long haul international flights. Entertainment was awful. No digital monitors, bad audio ( no good ear phones) and worst of all most of the movies don’t have subtitles ( image you watching with poor quality headphones with noise from flight .

Ground Staff in SFO were rude

There were crazy delays, flight cancellations and no communication whatsoever.

Very organized airline with friendly and professional air and land crew.

Hostes are very gentle & courteous.

Awesome service

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and the flight was on time."

Cons: "2-2-2 setup is old style for business class and while the seats were nice it means either you are stuck by the window or need to move to let others out in the aisle"
Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets.

Pros: "5 star service"
Cons: "no wifi"
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great services. Seat was good."
Cons: "The queue to board could be better."
Pros: "The flight got attendants were polite."
Cons: "The food was not so good as expected, to my surprise and disappointment. The seats were even narrower than my next connecting 2hr-flight from Incheon to Osaka... Also the flight attendants spoke only in Korean when walking down the aisles offering coffee, tea, etc. When I fly on other Asian airlines (Singaporean, Japan Airlines, All Nippon) everything is bilingual so it is easy to understand what is being offered or asked."

Pros: "Clean plane almost on time"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "The over-all service"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "food isn’t quite as fresh, delay time made the transfer between flight very tight"
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: "The crew were efficient, nice and friendly. There was a sick passenger and I think they were able to help them out. Even though there was a slight delay in the take off but we managed to stay on time."
Cons: "The bathroom was slightly flooded, one bathroom the water wasn't running so I couldn't wash my hands. There are not enough amenities in the bathroom. The food could use a little improvement. Waiting for the baggage claim took too long."
Pros: "Food was great, love the extra leg room as a 6ft tall guy, flight attendants were awesome"
Pros: "Perfect trip. Glad I tried this airline."
Cons: "In compare with PVG - ICN section, the ICN - LAX section meal food was poorly prepared."
Pros: "Overall fantastic trip. Food great, Seats great, inflight entertainment great!"
Cons: "The pushy people on flight"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No charger outlet"
Cons: "The food was worst food we had in any flight. I highly suggest try giving to humans first before offering to someone on 11 hrs flights. Its almost like prepared for animals."
Cons: "The entertainment is much under expected"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good, newer movies. Lacked usb or ac charging, had older screens both flights with subpar visuals."
Cons: "On both flights my party of 2 was split, despite an early check-in. We were lucky enough to swap seats because ANOTHER family was also split between us on the first flight. On the second, 3 parties were all split in the 3 rows in front of us, so we had to shuffle 4 different people before take off before the majority of the people were sat together. On 10 hour flights, generally I feel parties shouldn't be split unless they're checking in later than we did."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent"
Cons: "Both of the flight were 2-3 hours late"
Pros: "Pleasant, short flight that included a wonderful full meal!"
Cons: "I'm still in Korea. I want to go home."
Pros: "We really enjoyed the size and comfort of the Airbus 380. Very quiet and powerful as we crossed the Pacific Ocean. The crew were very helpful and always friendly throughout the entire 11 hours back home."
Pros: "Everything looks alright for a short trip."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive"
Cons: "Long ques to board and food choices were not well informed and extremely limited if you don't eat pork"
Cons: "The flight was delayed too much, by the time I reached Seoul all the restaurants were closed and I couldn't get anything to eat until 6 am. I specifically booked an early flight to avoid this."
Pros: "The leg room is very spacious and the staff are very friendly."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The earphones for the entertainment system didn't work well."
Pros: "crew was very professional and pleasant. Plane was in excellent condition comfortable and clean"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "I am a large person, the staff was kind enough to move my seat next to empty seats, since the plane was not full."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Dirty plane. Floor and tables not cleaned."
Pros: "The flight attendant service were attentive unlike US counterparts."
Cons: "Air was centrally controlled and no individual seat air nozzle. So when you are hot there is no directional air nozzle. There's no power source. On the 777 plane. Movies were Korean."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. Food ok"
Pros: "Safe flight and crew was nice"
Cons: "Suppose to have a window seat, got a isle seat. Food choices were aweful. Didn't eat"
Cons: "More options for tv shows such more episodes for korean tv shows like running man. Etc."
Pros: "The plane crew was awesome"
Cons: "But when I did my check in it took so long because neither of the asiana staff knew the condition or policy of my quantas itinerary. I don't know if it was the system but they should have managed better the situation. At last they took care of it but lost so much time. Besides everyone got nervous and I felt a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "We like the comfortable seats of the Airbus 380, the crew services. The food is ok; the entertainment is good"
Cons: "The boarding should be categorize in row number to avoid long line and delay."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the people in the plane were very polite and the movies available were very varied and good."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Overall Asiana offers very good service on their flights. It was a newer plane and provided limited in-flight entertainment options (movie selection was rather limited, no games). Crew was very efficient and things moved very smoothly. No complaints!"
Pros: "Great service, great food very content with Asiana airlines will definitely use it again"
Cons: "We wait for about 1 and a half hour to get off the plane due to some "procedures " with a sick passenger"
Pros: "I particularly liked the seamlessness of the experience - from the downtown checkin and getting a boarding pass at Seoul station, taking the AREX, the efficiency and competence of the front line personnel, etc. I will recommend Asiana and I would consider taking them long distance except that I am a goldcard frequent flier with American/British/Cathay for many years now. Chicago talks about seamlessness in its airport experience but its train-to-the-plane is the chronic weak link."
Cons: "Nothing - I'd tell you if there was. I didn't bother with entertainment for a two-hour flight and I was already well into a really eloquent novel (I'll Be Right There) by Kyung-Sook Shin; check it out"
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: "The food was excellent when the steward decides to serve you."
Cons: "4 of 4 flights were all delayed and the in flight entertainment is very limited."
Pros: "The cabin was surprisingly warm unlike other airlines I've been on. They also provided nice toiletries in the bathroom like face toner and mouth wash."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable especially for such a long flight"
Pros: "Staff was good!"
Cons: "Food, entertainment, seats"

My biggest complaint about this flight wasn't with Delta itself, but with the man next to me who half way through the flight decided he didn't need to wear his mask anymore. With so many headlines in the news of people going insane on flights about wearing masks, I wasn't about to ask him to put it on. I was disgusted by his lack of concern for the law and the health of those travelers around him. I know that Delta Flight Attendants did not sign up to be the mask police, but I really wish someone would have told him to put a mask on. People like him are ruining what would have otherwise been a really great flight/traveling experience. I'm happy Delta is bringing back meals on longer flights (in first class). The food was good but I am excited for the day when actual meal service returns. Maybe when people like my seat mate start wearing their masks and following the rules we can go back to having nice things.

Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."

Cons: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."
Cons: "I’m would be much better if I can sit by my husband."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"
Pros: "Upgrade. Comfort. Gourmet Oatmeal Breakfast."
Cons: "Need more cooking shows (British Bakeoff would be fun) or something besides what has been there for too long."
Pros: "Nice views on the east side of the flight. Caught Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Half Dome, Edwards AFB, downtown LA Free Gogo in-flight wifi allowed Google Maps to work well, though nothing else seemed to load. In-flight magazine was well-written."
Cons: "Flight ran a bit late due to departure congestion."
Pros: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Pros: "Refer to my comments about flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."
Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("
Pros: "Didn't know you could get complimentary meals anymore! The movie selection was awesome too!"
Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"
Pros: "The staff communicated what was going on"
Cons: "Our plane had mechanical problems and never left. I thought they would bring another plane in for us, but they never did. After 8 hours of waiting, we decided to cancel our trip and go home."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"
Pros: "Free rebooking"
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."

Wasn’t overbooked, so it was nice having an empty seat next to me. Appreciated the on time flight. Food was really bad though. Received stale vegetarian sandwich with just a slice of cheese and shredded carrots on it. Very strange and not tasty. I didn’t order a vegetarian meal either way of my trip but received all vegetarian meals because they said that’s all they have available.

just had delays and gate change

Flights were cancelled and rebooked multiple times. Not good notifications via email. Also booked onto budget airline which seem to be at a lower value than what I paid for.

I flew in Tourist priority, it was great.

Good

This leg of the journey was excellent.

The plane felt brand new. Crew was friendly and nice. And it was non-stop to San Diego!

The food on business class was not good at all

Pros: "got exit seat"
Cons: "Lufthansa not taking any responsibility for allowing connection time to be so short. Everyone on the fight from London missed their connections!"
Pros: "Crew was the best ever."
Cons: "Space is always an issue on super Kong flights, so any improvement for these 11 hour flights would be great. A place to stretch somewhere?"
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Pros: "Airbus airplane with four seats in the center for our family, good movie selection."
Cons: "Check-in at Frankfurt Airport was hard, we were directed to kiosks that did not work properly and then finally found help at the family check-in counter. Food is very average. Had to take a bus for boarding the plane on an international flight."
Pros: "Everything was amazing. I didn’t like the part where my luggage was lost and I still have no idea when or if it will ever be found."
Cons: "Having my luggage arrive at my destination with me."
Pros: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"
Cons: "Add an entertainment system, better food, there shouldn’t be a long wait to get a drink after your meal and maybe serve water with the meal. There wasn’t too many shops in the airport"
Pros: "New international terminal in San Diego is very nice"
Cons: "Never made the flight because my first flight was delayed."
Cons: "There was a group of ~20 French teenagers that did a lot of noise, like it was their own private field trip."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and smooth. Food was OK. Very efficient crew."
Cons: "Wheel chair accommodation in Frankfurt is poor, doable but not to the US standards. Lufthansa gate staff member took us to the wrong elevator, ended up outside security and had to go through security screening all over again, now late for flight and not early boarded. Was told she was only on the job for 2 weeks, I don't blame her for her incompetence I blame her management! Plane was loaded on the tarmac via a bus for a large international flight...no gate?? Seats in economy class are equivalent to those on a domestic flight, fairly uncomfortable on a 12hr flight. Many of the entertainment choices were not available, you can select it but all it plays is a short commercial."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on the plane"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Food is not good. But you can't expect that with any airline today anymore. Entertainment system wasn't working at my seat."
Pros: "A lot of legroom and good food for an airplane! The inflight entertainment has games, shows, movies, and a cool map. Plus the crew was friendly. This economy flight felt like premium!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Food, drink, viewing options on the personal monitor."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! Too small and way too close together!"
Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"

Pros: "Very comfortable and the flight crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "Friendly service, good food."
Cons: "A bit too cold."
Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be there early. They board early"
Pros: "Good service, good IFE, smooth, great cabin crew, no complaints."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Delay in the arrival/departure of the flight, presumably due to the strike the day before."
Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."
Pros: "Great staff, quick boarding and vegetarian options were avaliable. This was the most pleasant experience I've had with a flight service. I commend Lufthansa and the crew of this aircraft."
Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."
Pros: "Great staff, amazing experience."
Cons: "No vegetarian food"
Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."
Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."
Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."

Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Cons: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Cons: "No entertainment system at all - no movies, no music and no WIFI"
Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seat. Decent amount of room."
Cons: "There is a big problem with some of the Premium economy seats. the way the secure the seat to the floor of the plane puts a piece of metal directly under the seat in front of you so you cannot put a bag or other items easily under the seat. If you are in the middle of the row it is really a hassle to have access to your laptop."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Pros: "I was upgrade to Premium Economy with my family. Kids enjoyed playground areas at Frankfort Main Airport. Very nice and clean installation"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "It was not Lufthansa but United Irlines. I wish it was Lufthansa."
