Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Pros: "Super cheap. Came with an in flight meal. Kind staff. Great service."
Pros: "Attendants appeared intolerant and impatient. Not the pleasant courteous crew flying into Japan."
Pros: "Flight was half full so was able to take aisle seat."
Cons: "Fight attendant service was poor. Even getting water for meal, the attendant 'forgets' to bring it."
Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The food was good. Seats were as comfortable as any flight is."
Cons: "There were no diet soft drinks available on the flight."
Pros: "The movies they offered."
Cons: "How long it took the flight attendens to come back and take trash and out trays for both of the meals. It made it super uncomfortable in the tiny space available. Also, not enough knee space, especially when the person in front of you puts there seat back. I flew with American Airlines on the way to Japan and I had plenty of room but I wish it was the same coming home."
Pros: "Very warm attendants Excellent food for the price paid Highly professional crew Efficient boarding and ontime takeoff"
Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
Pros: "Flight attendants provide fantastic service with a smile. Business class meals are top notch."
Pros: "Always a good crew .. they go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable."
Pros: "JAL ' service is nice."
Cons: "I didn't like MSG in food."
Pros: "Once I made it through the long line at check in everything went very well. Check in was a bit of a nightmare since Air Busan is shared with Asiana Airlines."
Cons: "I had to stand in line at both Asiana and Air Busan to check in. Made checking in a lot longer than normal."
Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"
Cons: "the only thing was this flight was delayed and we missed the flight at LAX, but JAL reserved a hotel room near by for us so that we were able to refresh ourselves and relax till the next flight. thank you JAL!"
Pros: "the AA flight to japan was the worst flight I've ever been on! tv sreen didn't work, space was tight, food terrible, two sets of headphones bad, I could go on but I don't even want to think about it anymore"
Cons: "getting off"
Pros: "excellent food,comfortable, easy check in process"
Cons: "my bag was deemed not carry onable by staff but I had checked to make sure measurements met carry on criteria"
Pros: "Service with a smile goes even longer for long flights. Excellent service throughout the flight. Loved the feeling of spaciousness, even in Economy. Great sleep as a result."
Cons: "Number of movies available in Entertainment was limited, especially compared to competitors like Singapore Airlines. Ran out of good choices on a long flight."
Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."
Pros: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."
Pros: "Since I had back pain,I really like that I could checked in two luggages. Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"
Pros: "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."
Pros: "I've been always flying with U.S. airlines this past several years just because transits are easier. I forgot about how friendly and nicer JAL crews are. Their food is much much better. They served us with a cup of Haagen-Dazs icecream for dessert while a Fatboy is normally served by other airlines. I was impressed by how spacious the foot area of their economy seat is. Because I felt quite comfortable, I slept five hours straight during the flight which is phenomenal to me. I will definitely fly with JAL again!"
Pros: "SERVICE was amazing and everything was very smooth"
Pros: "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."
Cons: "JAL entertainment system had comparably fewer movie choices vs. many other airlines including American, United, and Delta. Surprising that Studio Cathay actually featured more Japanese films than the JAL Magic V system."
Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."
Pros: "I always find the service on Japan Airline to be excellent. What I really liked, and didn't expect, was that there was individual inflight entertainment systems. Most other carriers on short flights out of Busan don't have that available, so it was a nice option. The meals were excellent!"
Pros: "JAL in general."
Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian Food, inflight entertainment was horrible. Even the air hostess approach Was unexpect from JAL. If it was any American carrier it's expected to have such service."
Pros: "The crew's attention to detail, service."
Cons: "Sort of bumpy flight."
Pros: "Customer service is great."
Pros: "Great 12hr flight"
Cons: "Loved everything!!"
Pros: "The people, let's be honest, the Japanese just have a genuine humble way about them, where they actually derive pleasure from providing quality service. In short, they are better human beings, and having a flight with them taking care of me, is a sort of heaven"
Cons: "Food quality."
Pros: "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."
Cons: "Can't say that I have ANY complaints at all!!"
Pros: "It was perfect!"
Pros: "Booked the flight on Japanese Airlines and the Jal flight to Japan was fantastic."
Cons: "What I didn't know was the Jal return flight to the US was operated by American Airlines. The flight was packed, my inflight entertainment was broken, my folding table was broken so all my meals had to be held up by my knees , and I had a kicking screaming baby seated behind me keeping me up the whole flight. The crew was very rude and irritated by the full flight so the service was also terrible. Never flying with AA again."
Pros: "Service N crew n entertainment."
Pros: "A sense of quiet efficiency. On time and courteous."
Pros: "You guys couldn't be any more polite, attentive, courteous. There wasn't a moment during the flight that one of the flight crew was near in case you need something. Definitely best experience in an airline Thanks a thousand"
Cons: "We had a last minute flight change to extend my business stay in Asia. Our firm contacted JAL on 3/1 to extend the return date from 3/3 to 3/8. We were told that it was done and just call back on 3/7 to confirm flight. When we called back on 3/7, they said the flight was never rescheduled and could not find a voice recording of the request. Despite our offering of evidence of our other ticket from Osaka to TPE (3/3-3/8 round trip) showing that it was not a no-show, and we have phone records of calling JAL on 3/1. Nevertheless, their customer care center in CHINA was firm that it cannot be done. The money has been wasted. Ridiculous service for a 3,500 business class ticket."
Cons: "Old entertainment system, terrible food"
Pros: "Loved the food"
Pros: "Just okay."
Cons: "Som studies need more experience to customers"
Cons: "Screen was small and movies start at certain times."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "Courteous and excellent service. It was a better choice than a cheapo alternative I have taken before. Seat was comfortable for the two hour trip. Everyone seemed happy with the flight which made the tone of seatmates pleasant."
Pros: "Amazing service. Flight attendents were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Music didn't have the name of the artists, so I had no idea what I was listening to. I later found out that there is a magazine in the seat pocket showing all the details of the music channels, but still it's a bit annoying to have to look through the magazine and flip through the channels."
Cons: "the seats are not reclined, not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"
Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"
Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"
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 crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It took a while for them to serve the first meal and I don't know that there was a need for a second meal. I would have preferred to sleep."
Pros: "Crew were super attentive. Friendly and helpful. Food was decent. Nice change from standard fare."
Cons: "This seemed an older plane so the size of the economy class seating harkened back to the days when your legs were numb halfway through the flight."
Pros: "The crew are great!"
Cons: "Not enough wheel chair at LAX! Waiting for wheel chair too long! Finally, need to walk by myself at LAX. Very bad service for wheel chair at LAX! Need to improve this service for elderly."
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "Ground staff and in-flight crew were excellent. The food was very good. The business class seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Got flagged for secondary screening prior to boarding, although it probably wasn't ANA's decision. Video quality of the In-flight entertainment wasn't that great. The AC power plug could have been in a better spot. My power adapter would not fit."
Pros: "Their service"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "Meals were decent. Staff friendly. Had no problems and was able to sleep a bit."
Cons: "The economy seats on my plane were strange, they didn't really recline but rather the bottom part of the seat moves forward to make your body less vertical."
Pros: "very clean over a 9 hr flight , great seat and flight attendant"
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
Pros: "Staff is awesome"
Cons: "The seats in economy are ok and not a good comfortable seat.. and needs improvement on food menu choices. But no problem boarding, the attendants are courteous and nice.."
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The "meal" served about 1.5 hours after takeoff was just a very light snack. Nothing substantial. Could have been more food."
Cons: "cancelled, hard to rebook flight, staff unhelpful, rebooked on worse flight. very bad experience."
Pros: "Staff very friendlym Flight was on time."
Cons: "There is not entertainment at the plane even though is a international flight in a not low cost airline. The space between seat is quite small."
Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."
Pros: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."
Pros: "Timely departure/arrival, great flight crew, good food, excellent ride, clean cabin."
Pros: "I'm always in awe at how the crew operates, everything is tidy and the services are efficient and utmost hospitality. Look forward to flying with ANA again."
Pros: "Friendly staff and great food. Cabin was spacious even for Economy."
Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."
Cons: "Missed my flight over a misscommunication on getting to the airport. Thete was not sufficient time to arrive more than an hour early due to the fact Gimpo airport opens at 6am and the flight was at 7:45. When I arrived I was not allowed to check in or board and no one wanted to help me find out what to do. They suggested I call my ticketing agent. Thankfully they were helpful but they mentioned the ANA SHOULD have helped me find the next available flight but the representative kept repeating it was not her job. Finally she looked and said there were no available flights and tried to push me to buy another ticket through another company. My ticketing agent helped after she heard what happened and rebooked my flight for the next day. Hopefully everything goes smoothly but ANA staff at Gimpo were a bit of a nightmare to deal with"
Cons: "Touch screens were a bit glitchy. Was not able to adjust brightness, and volume kept readjusting by itself."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats don't recline in economy section. Seat slides forward, but seat back is fixed. Very uncomfortable for 10 hour flight. Breakfast was very smelly"
Pros: "Service was nice way more room than American Delta or United for economy"
Pros: "Very clean plane. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Lots of leg room. The seat doesn't till back, but instead the seat slides forward. I wouldnt mind to fly again with ANA. Terrific entertainment system and movies."
Cons: "Minor thing is the headset, which doesn't provide the best sound, but it will do. Food options can improve"
Pros: "Great service, excellent and curteous. Clean cabin"
Cons: "Food can be improved, economy seats are tight. Movie selection not as vast as SQ and Cathay"
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: "ANA airline was great! I love the service and the crew was very friendly, answers questions with a smile. I will definitely choose this airline for my travels, I know how they treat the coustomers."
Pros: "Good staff, good service, good entertainment"
Cons: "Although my partner and I bought our tickets together and booked them almost 9 months in advance, we were not seated together, which made the flight more difficult and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good Business Class, will fly them again. Excellent service."
Cons: "No meal served upon take off, snacks only."

Cons: "The food wasn't great and they fed us as soon as we boarded and right before we landed. There was about 8 hours in between and we were starving!"
Pros: "Food was good but not on every segment. Unlike many other airlines, ANA ticket counter team was very good. Japanese cabin crew etiquette & respectfulness are appreciated."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Narita has poor general facilities overall. Therefore ANA should offer a discounted lounge facility for passengers with more than 4 hours transit. (I read that lounge food is surprisingly bad. I used the United lounge instead.)"
Pros: "I like the whole experience overall I would definitely Fly ANA again"
Cons: "I like the whole experience overall"

Cons: "Food was bad."
Pros: "direct flight to Hawaii. Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "No space in seating, every thing costs on this trip, to include $10 to use a blanket, $4 to use ear buds. Any movie even old like Beatle juice for example was 7.99 per movie, tv shows were also 7.99. I have fly about every couple months both in USA and internationally, and all US carriers are by far the worse service."
Cons: "Staff wan not friendly Plane was not clean Food was plain First time ever on Hawaiian airlines and unless it's the only flight avail I prob will not choose Hawaiian airlines again"

Seems like basic thing to expect on flights these days and especially this long with families. Also freezing cold. All passengers on right side of aircraft were miserable."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that was very nice"
Cons: "Rude service, I have to pay for entertainment, which I never have to do with other airlines for a 6 hour flight. Food was terrible. No options in food. Immediately when the flight took off , they turned the air conditioner up so high and before they even served the drinks, they were selling blankets.. everything was a sells pitch .. I hate Hawaiian .."
Pros: "In flight meal served without having to pay."
Cons: "Delays on a late flight anyway. Were supposed to be in to LAX at 11pm and was in the terminal 2 hours late. Transportation is not fun at 1am."

Cons: "The crew. Not very friendly. Rarely smiles. Snacks was very limited. The entertainment center does not work very well. Touch screen buttons worn out. Have to press hard for it to respond."
Pros: "the most beautiful ladies and men of the airways....great juice....with cane sugar now vs cancerous high fructose corn syrup....delicious snack bag of crackers......no free in flight entertainment is kind of lame....and i would like the opportunity to be able to have more water on the flight.....8 ounces in 5.2 hours is a bit dehydrating....but overall with all my bitches aside....nothing better than hawaiian air...did i mention how beautiful the crew was?"
Cons: "no free tv or movies not enough water( i could have asked more but you know...don't want to be a bitch)"
Pros: "Agent at check-in was very friendly and efficient. Kudos."
Cons: "Could not check-in with mobile app (on iPhone)."
Cons: "Seats are too small and cramped, No games"
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Checking in at the Kona airport is chaotic. People with baggage moving through other people in lines for check - in. Gate agents were most unpleasant, for example, - started yelling at one woman that she couldn't go through the front of the line, even though she was simply trying to follow her blind mother! Could have handled that a whole lot better."
Pros: "The plane was nice and comfortable, the crew was also very nice."
Cons: "Our plane was 2 hours late leaving and we missed our flight in LA which delayed us getting home 8 hours. Long 2 days of travel. It was an overnight flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice, I had plenty leg room. I wasn't that many people. Well, it was almost full."

Pros: "The entire trip was smooth and easy, from check in at Honolulu airport to baggage claim at LAX, we had zero issues! That's a rarer and rarer thing these days. The flight crew were friendly and polite, the complimentary meal in coach was a pleasant surprise, and the A330-2 was smartly designed for relative comfort and accessibility."
Cons: "Would be great if there were SOME free television offerings, like Southwest Airlines does. I understand paying for the movies (although if you really wanted to stand out above the competition you could offer a select movie for free like in the old days), however the option to watch some satellite tv channels at no cost would be great. Also the nearest bathroom was out of order and that was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "It wasn't to bad a bit camped, the seats are right. The crew was lovely the food could be better but other than the screaming kids it was ok"
Cons: "Food choices could be better"
Pros: "Other than the IDIOT who was handeling board who had me standing over 50 minutes, I have had 7 knee surguries. No one could stop her all she wanted seating people by sections according to her"
Cons: "By the time I boarded I could hardly walk"
Pros: "We were reseated together as requested."
Cons: "Bad estimates on how long the mechanical issue would take. We were told 15 minutes then 30 minutes to fix. Total time delayed: 2.5 hrs... Absolutely no freebies offered during the flight (food or extra miles, nada)."
Cons: "The snack that they served was a joke period"
Pros: "They fed us which was great!"
Pros: "The service is excellent."
Pros: "Good service and attentive stewards. After flying Jetstar this was classy. Appreciate the food and beverages."

Pros: "The lady greeting at the entrance by cockpit inside the plane was nice and greeted us with a warm aloha."
Cons: "It was so cramped and uncomfortable. The guy flight attendant was rude and kept referring to me as "bro". It was my first time flying Hawaiian air and might be my last. Sucks you have to pay for viewing of anything on there screens. It was a boring flight. Unless you pay for an etertainment packet from them to view and any movie or show. Other then the rude flight attendant this felt like I was flying allegient."
Pros: "Even though they didn't have hot water on the beverage cart, they brought a cup back to me after they finished serving."
Cons: "There were no food options for certain dietary restrictions/allergies (without wasting money/not eating parts of the food options)."
Pros: "Loved the complimentary hot meal. What a lovely surprise. Even had a complimentary glass of wine with dinner!!!! The crew was friendly and very helpful. On time departures and arrival. Lots of overhead bin space."
Cons: "Wish they offered a blanket to use during the flight. Also didn't like the in flight complimentary entertainment much. Unless you paid $8 per movie, you were stuck with a feature on the Hawaiian Islands or just classical/jazz/Hawaiian music. Glad I brought a book."
Pros: "Clean interior and great service."
Cons: "I reserved seats at the time of ticket purchase. It did not show that seat choice when I checked in. I was sat away from my family for both flights. Only the kayak tickets did this."
Cons: "All entertainment except Hawaiian music was costly. Only drinks and snacks were offered for free"
Cons: "The flight was horrible.Delayed for over 7 hours Maui, with the crew giving us "30 min" updates which weren't updates at all except that we don't have an update, finally after 5-6 hours, they gave us meal vouchers and told us to come backt to the holding area at a certain hour. Then, when we got back they told us we were going to be flying over to Honolulu and picking up the new flight crew, I PAID FOR A NON STOP TICKET! NOT ONLY DID WE FLY TO HONALULU, THEY MAKE ALL OF US GET OFF THE PLANE AGAIN AND GET ON AGAIN AFTER 1-1.5 HOURS. I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AT 9:50PM ON SATURDAY NIGHT, INSTRAD LANDED AT LAX ON SUNDAY AT 7AM. NO ONE WANTS TO TALK REFUND, IT WAS A MESSY SITUATION - SEVERAL CUSTOMERS WHERE ONT HE PHONE WITH BOTH HAWAIIN AIRLINES AND PRICELINE, KAYAK TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON."
Pros: "Still free food!"
Cons: "Always delayed, uncomfortable seats, no free entertainment, no wifi and the crew always lacks charisma and the rreal aloha!"

Cons: "Our flight from HK to LAX we were told that the pilot refused to wait for us even if we arrived in HK from cebu at 11:35 of July 29 and our flight to lax was at 12:05 .Cathay couldn’t do anything about it. We were billeted in a hotel far from the airport with free breakfast but no lunch was provided and the earliest flight they could give us was scheduled at 16:35 of Juy 30. Upon returning to the airport I asked a cathay staff regarding provisions for lunch but I was told there’s none.Overall our trip both to and from LAX were very uncomfortable and inconvenient. I hope Cathay will do something better in situations like we encountered. As of this writing I and my husband are still at HK airport waiting for our flight to LAX."
Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."
Cons: "Terriable service"
Cons: "Late boarding and departures from LA to CGK and from CGK to LA. Seats were uncomfortable for 14 hours flight. Very minimal service provided during flight, minimal isle check by flight attendent throughout the 14 hours flight. I had the rudest flight attendant, she didn't smiles. Asked for drinks but never return. My niece request for cup of noodle, instead she responded if didn't my niece had already one. I asked for beef dinner but she placed on my table a turkey instead stated she ran out after I told her that's not beef. Flight attendant yelled out loud to tell the passenger to seat down instead of approach the passenger."

Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. The layover was way shortest as compared to other competitor flights. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "The food and snacks"
Cons: "More space on seats"

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!"
Cons: "Lost bags. Stranded in Sri Lanka in sweatsuit worn on freezing plane. Cathay has no agent in airport to speak with...must communicate through local airport personnel, who have no information, nor authority to help. Cathay wouldn't track down bag or deliver in readonable amount of time, so we had to go back next day at midnight when nxt plane arrived + hope bags were on it. We were shocked as crew was so organized getting us (people) to connecting flight in Hong Kong. Woman met us at gate and personally led us to connection gate. Only a few gates down in same terminal. In case you're curious: not that we expect Michelin star dining, but the food is dismal. Some of the worst airline food ever. It's like pure sodium + tastes very much like the aluminum can it surely came out of."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding please setup separate lines for end and front cabin seats. Since everyone where mingled during boarding the flight the aisle was blocked by front cabin passengers loading their cabin languages.. Try boardning end of the cabin passengers first like from seats 60-75 and then front cabin seats."

Pros: "the plane had excellent entertainment and a port to charge your phone."
Cons: "no issues at all on this flight."

Pros: "The chair size. The movie"
Cons: "Stewardess in my isle was not friendly. Don't have enough supply of bottle water. HK airport won't allow drink to be brought on the plane even though it was bought at the airport. Hard cushion on chair."

Pros: "seats were wider and more legroom in economy section, better food than other airlines, crew were helpful, entertainment system offered good selection."
Cons: "one entertainment system kept freezing and did not work for the last 4 hours of the flight, toilet need more frequent cleaning."
Cons: "Pilots apparently forgot the seatbelt sign pretty much the entire flight. Flight attendants were trying to get people to stay seated until it became clear the light was never going off. Literally 1/2 the flight people were just wandering around and the attendants gave up. Seriously guys, on a 10+ hour flight, that's not cool."
Pros: "Friendly and hard working staff. Clean aircraft. Decent movie choices. Gluten free meal available, though I can't make a selection for GF Meal + Seafood (pescatarian). I get chicken or meat in GF, and I don't eat either."
Cons: "Boarding is not by row numbers -- this is chaotic with long snaking line. Aircraft Toilets get dirty quickly with urine on the commode and the floor. There needs to be a quick drying wet disinfection system. You must enable Gluten Free meals to come with 3 choices - Veg, Non Veg, Seafood only."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "Food was very good"
Cons: "We did on line check in 1 1/2 days before and couldn't get two seats together"

Cons: "The water they were serving was not bottled and tasted like restroom water. However when I brushed my teeth in the restroom, it did not have that horrid smell and taste as the drinking water did. Two inflight staff was rude, Didn't get their names but both ladies blocked passengers way when they were trying to get back to their seats and rolled their eyes at a lot of passengers for various requests. Completely not professional!"
Pros: "Food was hot, tasty and nutritious. This time, the crew didn't make faces or roll their eyes when I asked for a snack and the service co-ordinator was visible the entire flight making notes and checking on people."

Cons: "Delay delay delay !!! And nothing served. Not even a cup of water"
Pros: "Flight was good, seat was comfy."
Cons: "I did not like that food trays were left at our seats for over an hour after we were done eating. People who had special meals had trays at their seats for well over 90 minutes after they were done eating. Many people were upset with that. They offered more coffee and did other things before picking up trays. It was especially uncomfortable for people who had toddlers with them. People started getting up and bringing their trays to the staff. And the staff seemed annoyed, but I feel passengers had a right to be upset."
Pros: "i liked that there was a larger variety of food to choose from and the traditional hong kong style fish was amazing. the seasons greetings cookie was good too. the crew was good in trying to help everyone on board."

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "The food wasn't great specially the breakfast vegetarian option . The staff should be more friendly and the options have a long layover"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board, so bathrooms did not get the necessary attention. Had to ask for toilet paper for two different bathrooms. Transferring to this flight as a NIGHTMARE. The boarding gate was a long way from the arrival gate. Went through an endless maze. Went through two security check points. At both check points I was sent for pat down. At the first there were five other women who were waiting for pat down. All white women. Discrimination???? At the second security, I had not even passed through the detector and the officer was waving me to get a pat down. At that point I started laughing. Next automated preclearance for immigration, then had to wait in line to talk to immigration officer. It is a miracle that I made it to the flight on time. Passport and boarding pass checked minimum of 6 times in this process. On arrival in Los Angeles, there was a bus ride to the terminal for luggage pick up. My husband was at the terminal I normally come to, I had no way to contact him (Indian sim), no change for pay phone. A fellow passenger was merciful and let me use her phone send husband messages and eventually we met up. I would not use Eithad for India to USA for this reason only. The security and immigration preclearance sucks."
Pros: "I asked for dental kit and flight crew gave me one."
Pros: "Nothing. Would never take this airline again. And would tell everyone to never take this airline."
Cons: "I checked in 10 hours early for my flight and no one told me that I was bumped out of my flight because they were overbooked until one hour before takeoff. Then a gate attendant had the nerve to ask me if I was Vip. When I said no, she said she couldn’t help me and I had to wait for the next flight which was the next day. When I complained to a manager, they let me through security to get on standby for the flight and I was the last one to get on the flight. Their service is awful!!"
Pros: "Only I like the cabin crew. They were very nice and very friendly. This is the only thing I like about the Etihad Airways."
Cons: "More than 9 hour stay with no hotel & no food voucher before 16 hours flight . When I requested the customer service person he was very rude and with very bad attitude even the person was behind me he said the same thing. The food was very bad taste during the flight,coffee and tea had a very bad taste. Orange juice taste very bad too. No personal kit was given during the flight. Over all very bad experience. Please coney my comments to Etihad Airways."
Cons: "The staff at the Abu Dhabi airport."
Pros: "The direct flight availability and price for a short notice."
Pros: "Everything was geeat!"

Although my first plane from Seoul to Abu Dhabi was for 10 hours but only one meal served and it was omlette with sausage And at the beginning a small toast sandwich served. This indeed very strange because everytime I flied with Etihad you serve 2 meals one of them is meat or chicken with rice. I was really starving until the next glight because when we left Incheon airport it was 12.55am and most restaurants were closed. Please try to solve this issue"
Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "vv disappointing and frustrating at Ahmedabad airport while checking in . i was carrying the same hand bag that i had carried on my trip to india ,so how did that same hand bag cause a problem while coming back .they gave me very hard time regarding that bag .please look into the matter they forced me to break the wheels of my bag so it fits in that stupid cage . otherwise they were insisting that i buy a bag from the airport which i think is illegal"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Lost baggage at LA after deboarding no body guide from where to collect baggage where to go all mismanaged"
Pros: "overall service was good."
Cons: "as an American, with LAX as my home airport, it was unfortunate that we were not told of where our baggage claim was. We arrived in the International terminal, however, our bags arrived in terminal 4 (American). I feel for the foreign traveler in this instance. A quick update to travelers before disembarking of the plane as to the location of where their luggage would be found would be nice."

Pros: "In-flight service and entertainment."
Cons: "The layover at Abu Dhabi airport was too small and we had to literally run through security check, US pre-clearance to get onto our flight."

Pros: "Food was decent, service was great, they didn't bother me much while I slept. Overall good experience for 17hrs airborne."
Cons: "The seat bases are the most uncomfortable thing I've ever seen... zero padding. I might have developed hemorrhoids from the trip! LOL. Seriously though, compared to an airline like Cathay Pacific the seat bases are garbage. The rest of the setup (entertainment, overall seat geometry, etc) is really good."
Cons: "Total lack of ownership or accountability as we booked through Jet Airways, despite it being a partner airline. I highly recommend never boring any trip that involves both Jet and Etihad. They are not partners and suffer from lack of communication or processes to manage any issues, just pass the buck. Awful experience."

Pros: "Boarding elayed by almost an hour. Not a nice experience for anyone"
