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."

Cons: "Some turbulence awoke us midway through the overnight flight."
Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."

Cons: "There was nothing bad about this flight."
Cons: "I ordered Hindu vegeterian meal while coming to Chicago on phone with Japan Airline I got Asian veg food"
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"
Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "I really liked my experience with JAL. The comfort and overall service of the flight was excellent."

Cons: "add low carb meal option please!"
Pros: "There was a lot of leg room and updated features. Also the candy they gave out was good."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking,"

Pros: "The Japanese food was fantastic - individual Japanese food selections which I wondered if would be good turned out totally amazing - well done!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."
Pros: "That it didn’t crash"
Cons: "It was very delayed and then the luggage still hasn’t come out"
Pros: "Same level of exceptional service on this second leg of my journey. I am looking forward to my next two flights with ANA when i return home."

Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."
Cons: "I thought I would get a little more than a few extra inches in Economy Plus. Maybe an overnight packet (ear plugs, eye mask, toothbrush?) and/or a foot rest for the extra money, but it was literally only a few extra inches of space."
Pros: "The crew has always been so polite, they seem like they are actually having a good time :) The planes have always been clean, and I've never seen a fellow passenger complaining."
Cons: "While I've always had plenty to eat, I'm not always familiar with some offerings...but that's on me."

Pros: "Great service. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "The large windows on the 787 are really a big plus for someone like me who likes to look out the window. To have the added ability to dim the window progressively is just too cool. Even if the sun is bright, you can still look out and enjoy the view. I love this feature of the 787 and am always a little disappointed when I'm back in any other aircraft."
Pros: "The stewardess constantly walked the aisle looking to assist the passengers...no disappearing act like one finds on other airlines. I was in business class, so the food was very tasty."
Pros: "Best leg space, new air crafts, kids gifts"
Cons: "Food choices are very average. Nothing for vegeterians if you do not order in advance. English language accouncements were not clear at all - not great for an international flight"
Pros: "One of the best inflight meals. They serve snacks on top of main meal."
Cons: "The shuttle bus to the plane was crowded. Limited movie options."
Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "leg room!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardess"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Pros: "Light food but breakfast could have been more substantial only one chicken sausage?"

Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Cons: "There was turbulence at the beginning of the flight so we couldn't get the snack that we ordered. When the turbulence died down, the flight attendants did not bother to complete the food service for snacks or drinks ordered. I had to get up and ask twice. They were not present much at all in BUSINESS CLASS. So that's why I rated the experience as poor. The international food choices are poor. They do not taste good. I think I have to stop flying ANA. Kisha"
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time. The plane was nice too, nicer than most other airlines. The seats were roomy enough, as good as economy can be. Food was one of the best. The movies were pretty new which is always a plus. The crew was awesome. I get motion sickness whenever I ride anything, be it planes, buses, trains or boats, and the fact that the flight attendants kept checking on me put my mind at ease."
Cons: "There was a smell of old sweat odor from the seats, maybe table. Plus my table was still wet when I opened it. So that was kind of gross."
Pros: "Good air crew. Good manners and attention to detail. Excellent members at check-in."
Pros: "I liked my seat. It was in the first row behind first class. The ticket lady was very nice and patient"
Cons: "I was very frustrated because I thought I had 90 minutes between flights but by the time I got my luggage it was too late to get my scheduled plane. This forced me to wait two hours for the next plane after I had been on a plane for 13 hours."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"

I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site.

Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Cons: "Would like to put my feet up in front of me."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "It took Emirates a while to let passengers out. 1 hr layover is just barely in enough, expect to run or fast walk to connecting flights. Not organize when boarding aircraft."
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"

Cons: "No information re cancelled flight, board at Dubai indicated flight delayed with no time or boarding gate. Over 300 people at Emirates / Qantas customer service desk and 2 operators. Only found out that the flight may be cancelled from an email from kayak. Eventually got on a flight 6 and a half hours later. When leaving the board still said ek5101 delayed. I am sure if left up to Emirates / Qantas we would still be sitting at Dubai looking at the board."

Pros: "Crew ignored my existence just because I sat on the window seat, plus I'm an asian, so I'm not sure which of the reason makes her to ignore me for serving my food. Luckily the guy passenger that sit beside me helped me to inform and made sure that she served the food to me."

Pros: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."
Pros: "Nice staff and inflight service. seats were great"
Pros: "good service, patient with passengers"
Cons: "For 9 hr flight the space between the seats in economy class was way too small. Im 1.75cm (medium) and I felt squeesed and very unconfitable not like in Lufthansa airplane flying from Newark to Dussldorf. (Flight only 6:15min) In addition, when front passenger moved his seat back on me I had a lot of difficulties with getting in and out of my seaat."
Pros: "It was an 8.5 hour flight and we got fed 2 meals, 2 snacks and had lots of beverage breaks! We were delayed a little but it was due to an issue in France, not anything to do with the airplane, and the captain found a solution faster than he had originally said he would (with the help of the tower of course)."
Cons: "The legroom in economy is just as bad as you would expect."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"

Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good and the onboard crew was very nice and friendly. The seats seemed slightly more apart than on Lufthansa."
Cons: "The entertainment unit at my seat was really hard to hear, and from what I heard around me it seems like it's a problem at many if not most seats."
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."
Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."
Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Pros: "Great entertainment system"
Cons: "Leg room space was a bit restricted compared to what I am used to"
Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."
Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Cons: "Expired cheese. Loudest plane I have ever been on."
Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."
Pros: "I cannot check in online for us flights so I need to get my seat at the check in. I am flying with swiss every month between Zürich and New York but a lot of Ines I get a shitty seat even if I am silver status As a frequent flyer I expect a priority handling which is not the case . No upgrade poaaibility due to wrong booking class (even if flights are very expensive) if this continues to go that way I will change airline alliance This is more a miles and more issue but it is really annoying me in a way that I really consider changin"
Pros: "Everything except the earphones was great"
Cons: "The earphones are bad and connector is 2 pins, so couldn't use mine."
Cons: "Sound for on-screen entertainment not working. It was static-y all the time and completely cut out the rest of the time. I made various attempts to solve the problem, switching headphones, switching to my own headphones (which can't really be done because they have a two-prong jack and personal headphones are always one). I tried watching different movies, programs, music...it wasn't the material I was watching that was the problem. I asked the flight attendant to reset my console. That didn't work either. I just ended up reading my book the entire 9 hour trip."
Pros: "General good service, food was good"
Cons: "Airplane wasn't clean, we had hair on the headrest cover and asked one of the crew members for new headrest cover but was ignored."
Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"
Pros: "I was supposed to visit my father who was just put in a nursing home for a few days and the day of my flight I received an email from Swiss that they had rebooked me for the next day! So frustrating! The trip would have gotten so short that it wasn't worth it so I had to reschedule it 6 weeks out. It got my dad really upset! Thank god his health is stable at the moment."
Cons: "Delay and lost the luggage for the second time"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."
