I like the airlines but because I used to fly with Japan airlines.this time not much entertainment and delayed flights and not comfortable compare to my previous flight. Food is not good. Flight attendant are confuse. I had to help other rider because they skip to serve him food.Over all is not Japan airlines that I used to ride.
Overall, very good trip. I would definitely fly with Japan Airlines again. Food choices are Japanese-centric, flying back to Los Angeles after being in Asia two weeks, something different would have been nice. But overall, very good.
Japanese flight was awesome.
I really JAL! Will use again. KAYAK is excellent as well.
Pros: "Crew took great care of us"
Cons: "The cabin was so hot it felt like there was no air conditioning. Please turn up the air conditioning (make it colder). Passengers feeling cold can use a blanket to stay warm. Passengers feeling warm have no solution. I was wearing just a T-shirt and was feeling so warm. Thank you"

Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "PA system was used excessively."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."

Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time.

I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii.

Pros: "JAL service is always the best Flight attendance are the always, always, awesome. Seats together were found at checkin"
Cons: "Movie selection was not so good No Wifi inbound or outbound 777 Almost nonstop babies crying the whole flight Seat selection on the website is not user friendly, and you cannot get seats books until 72 hours before flight and usually 9 out of 10 times I find I cannot find 2 seats together until airport checkin."

Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."
Pros: "comfort, food, flatbed, movie choice. a quality aircraft, that is why i choose Singapore. i fly to Europe every year, and have flown with many different carriers, so i speak from experience when I say I prefer to fly Singapore as they are number one."

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."

Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."

Cons: "Very old plane with no AC"
Cons: "Slow cleanup after food service."
Cons: "Complimentary varieties can be increased"

Flying Moscow to Delhi via Qatar Airways turned out bad , firstly the flight from Moscow to Doha is full and that's the reason for crew to not serve foods of choice for some passengers on board. Second bigpoint is doha to Delhi is operated via code share by Indigo. In short IndiGo is a shit airline to fly even domestically in India with because the planes are as bad as the service staff. Don't fly qatar India route in code share flights , especially it is codeshared with IndiGo
The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!
Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing and food was good"
Cons: "Rest area could had been better"
Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "Overall experience was good!"
Cons: "Keep the good work up."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "The airplane trip was ok"
Cons: "I had 14h of layover in Doha and I did not have a hotel to sleep that night."

Pros: "wanted an isle seat because of back issues and was arranged without any hassle."
Cons: "17 hour transit in Doha and no accommodation was provided. Though I booked it from a third party I belive QA is at least responsible for making sure that the vendors let the user know that there will be NO accommodation provided. This information is also not readily accessible when searching online."
Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "The trip was very comfortable and food suited me"
Pros: "Good aircraft, crew attentive."
Cons: "Food was poor."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"

Pros: "Great hospitality"
Cons: "going with RJ in the first leg"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."

Cons: "Stupid and unbelievable rules"
Pros: "I like everything about the flight"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."

Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Cons: "Engine problem. Everybody off of aircraft after sitting in it 3 hours!. No airline representitives inside airport to help. Slept in airport with various ppl from qatar popping up and giving untrue information"
Pros: "Very friendly online travel booking portal. I like it"
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
Cons: "Staff were rude, careless. I do think I have paid less to purchase of ticket - why will I not get good service. If you want to treat people differently for their skin color and country of origin then charge less price for the ticket !!"
Pros: "Good though. But not too comfortable with indiscriminate change of seats. Was held up in Doha because my seat was changed."
Food was meager for a long flight. Otherwise everything else was very nice.
I miss my flight, they said right gate but different airline that was print on my boarding pass. I didn't get my refund back very poor customer service at the terminal
Pros: "Crew fine. No in cabin movies and super late prompts to download ap."

Pros: "Boarding was on time."
Pros: "Complimentary rum punch."

Pros: "Everything was beautiful and great on return flight to PDX"

Cons: "30 min after takeoff from HNL the flight was turned around and landed back at HNL. We deplaned and sat in the waiting area for the next 5 hours and 50 min until another plane was available for us."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Roomy seats"
Pros: "Plane seemed new, was clean, and adequate space. Staff was good. Overall a satisfactory flight experience"
Cons: "The warm pork sandwich was pretty bad. Soggy and lacking flavor. Would have much preferred a cold turkey sandwich. Would also be nice to be able to pay a flat fee for watching movies on the going and returning flights rather than paying between $4 and $8 per movie. Was seated next to small children which is not the airlines fault but still doesn't make for the most peaceful flying experience."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Cons: "Couldn't get my Andriod working with Hawaiian entertainment app"
Pros: "Comfortable plane and good service. Everything was on time and easy. Staff were kind and friendly to everyone."

Pros: "Seats were compfortable"
Cons: "Wouldn't assign a seat until arrived. Machine wouldn't accept barcode on phone. Lady at counter was rude."
Pros: "Good entertainment systems. Easy flying from Maui to Auckland."
Cons: "OMG the food. Were they serious? The Breakfast was the worst food Ive had on my 37 years on Planet Earth."
Cons: "Same information as the above, Tried to change flight, and rebook, but could not get anyone to answer the phone. So had to book with another airline, so we can get home. So we paid twice to return home a day late. We would really like a credit or reimbursement for our return flight, since a natural disaster (road closed to airport) and no way to contact the airlines were the cause of our no show, which was this flight!"
Pros: "Food was not great but it is always nice to have a hot meal provided on the flight and I also appreciated the Maui Brewing beer they offer during beverage service."
Cons: "I was seated in the back row and found it difficult to rest/relax on this overnight flight from Auckland to Honolulu because the flight crew was in the back socializing very loudly to the point where it was unprofessional. I could tell that I was no the only guest annoyed by the noise.It was very inconsiderate and unprofessional to behave this way while on the job especially during the announcements that I couldn ot understand because of the talking behind me. I fly Hawaiian Airlines often and have never had this type of issue. I was surprised that none of the other crew members said anything to the noisy group of hosts/hostesses."
Pros: "Boarding was unorganized and slow. Flight took off in time but arrived a half hour late. Food was horrid, even by airplane standards."
Cons: "The 6 hour flight was a trial due to the uncomfortable seats. They are hard, flat and slippery. Next time I might consider dragging along a non-skid pad to sit on."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Ruth, was fantastic. Very personable and attentive."
Cons: "We had splurged on Business Class as it was our 25th wedding anniversary. Food options were not great. I follow a plant-based diet. Hawaiian Airlines do not offer any meals for plant-based (aka vegan) diets. They have vegetarian, but that is not acceptable for vegans. I spent 8 years living abroad. Many foreign carriers allow you to go online and manage your meals prior to your flight; vegan, kosher, low salt, Hindu, gluten free, etc. Business Class experience was much less than other airlines we've flown. Airbus aircraft are always seem on the "cheap" side to me."
Pros: "I flew first class on this trip so it was an awesome experience, especially with their seats that allow you to lay down."
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, I don't have the slightest idea what my money went to. The my car seat and stroller the were checked were both visibly damaged and had pieces missing. Now I have to purchase a new car seat because my sons is no longer safe for him to ride in."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines seems to be able to give comfortable seats with adequate leg room; and decent food (included in the price of the ticket) for the same price as everyone else. Why can't the other airlines do the same? The crew was stellar, as always. I can't say enough about Hawaiian. They are my airline of choice. I will always fly them if I possibly can."
Pros: "Hawaiian provides clean planes and great, friendly service."
Pros: "The crew does a fine job, and the airplane is comparably clean and comfortable. I fly a fair amount however and I am always disappointed to learn what is NOT included in my fare. The direct connection between where I was an where I wanted to be made the difference in this case."
Cons: "I had a very hard time locating the correct ticketing counter. In fact, due to a lack of signs (Honolulu airport) I was in line for Australia before a person came and asked. It was poorly organized. I was disappointed to pay for my only bag (which was carry-on size and only needed to be checked due to a liquid I was bringing home). I was disappointed to learn that the only in-flight entertainment I had available without paying was short documentary films about Hawaiian Airlines or their staff's travels. On a five hour flight it is particularly frustrating to have so little available. My Delta flight by contrast offered multiple movie titles. In fact, I could have gotten another flight for less $ with more entertainment (but going to a different city)."
Pros: "Wonderful crew and they actually feed you and give you a complimentary glass of wine. It's nice to see airlines coming back to taking care of their passengers. The captain came on the speaker to let the passenger with a dog know he personally checked on their dog and reassure them all was well."
Cons: "The movies are free on the window sides of coach but not in the middle yet both have the Same plane ticket fare. It seems unfair and unnecessary for an almost 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable the staff was rude and of zero help. the entire experience affirmed our decision to never use hawaiian airlines again."
Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Asked for coffee, was given tea."
Pros: "Service was fine."
Cons: "Delay at Honolulu because they had tto repair something on the brakes."
Cons: "Poor entertainment options. Customer service was poor as well."
Pros: "Good in flight food and services."
Cons: "How come hawaiian airlines, who continually advertised moana and hire they sponsor the movie, but they don't offer it?! I was really disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable, frequent drink service, actually served a meal."
Cons: "I wish they had internet available; we came in 40 minutes early and being able to let my pick-up know would have been invaluable."
Pros: "Airbus is more comfortable than Boeing in economy class; bit of extra foot room quite nice on long flight. Pleasant crew! Will look to fly again. Mahalo"
Pros: "The courteous flight attendance."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but okay. At least they offered a meal which is nice on such a long flight."
Pros: "SMS update about changing departure time allowing for adjustment of pre departure"
Cons: ">3h delay due to crew rest need"
Pros: "Crew were relatively nice until there were mass delays deboarding and they refused to keep us informed as to what was happening. Also, delays at the start (with no AC, so it was very hot in cabin)."
Cons: "I could not eat the food as there were eggs in pretty much all of it (I have an allergy), and I was given no other options, which is unacceptable, especially given that this was a long international flight. Wine was terribly sweet. Touch screen basically inoperative (very tiresome)."
Pros: "Meal service offered in coach. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Would prefer to have a United States carrier fly US planes (Boeing) not Airbus. One very positive step all airlines should take is to prevent the reclining of seat backs in coach. The space between rows is already very tight and becomes really uncomfortable when the seat in front of you is reclined."
Pros: "It could have been the airport (Honolulu) or HA, but either way it was sheer chaos transferring from the inbound Auckland flight to the flight to Portland. We had to sit on the plane until customs was "ready for another group" and then there were at least 5 check points! We even had to go through security again and give up our newly purchased water bottles. We had to pick up our luggage and transport it to another drop point and no one there had a clue how the luggage was being organized - no surprise then that we arrived in Portland with 4/6 pieces of luggage. We were told it would be delivered to us - 2 days later still waiting. NOT impressed!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Other than that the plane was packed and the bathrooms got dirty very quickly. Food was terrible! When I booked the flight, tried to find special diet options but were not available. Flight attendant told another passenger that they don't offer special meals."
Pros: "Good movie selections"
Cons: "Hard time getting comfortable to sleep"
Pros: "The atmosphere friendly staff!"
Cons: "Purchased onboard entertainment option. Screen went blank after only half the flight. Flight attendant said she would reboot but did not work until 5 minutes before landing"
Pros: "Food was good! Hawaiian music and warm greetings got us in the vacation mood as soon as we boarded."
Cons: "Free movies on a 6 hour cross ocean flight would have been much appreciated."
Pros: "As above ..."
Cons: "Movie selection seemed kind of thin. My 'interactive' touch-screen video monitor was very user-unfriendly, requiring me to push quite hard and numerous times in order to make any selection. Finally got there but only after much repeated effort. Left a note on the monitor advising crew and/or maintenance of this malady, hoping they would provide a fix prior to further use. (Seat 20 G, Flight HA 26, on Sat. Sept. 24th)"
Pros: "International cost nothing but Domestic cost money. No cash allowed. What business model is that?"
Pros: "TSA is rediculous and affects how people interact with your customer servce. Your customer service in Honolulu needs a lot of work. Pointing people to a single counter person to obtain a seat on a plane after the person has already been on a 9 hour Hawaiian flight is beyond disrespectful. It is cruel. It was close to a couple of months that I had purchased the ticket and I get on the Plane in Auckland only to find I would need to process through TSA yet another time in order to get to the counter and obtain my seat. 3 hours in a TSA line allowed 20 minutes to get to that counter. I also needed to find a private space to give myself my insulin. I do not do that in public bathrooms or even my own bathroom..... but it never happened because I stood in Customs line and then Imigration line and yet again the third TSA line. I think TSA held up over 200 of us because they went to lunch. He were stopped still with absolutely no progress for over an hour."
Cons: "You and all the other airlines need to work together and improve TSA. The counter person at Hawaiian in Honolulu was unprofessional and capricious. She preferred to service a huge dog rather than myself, even though it was my turn . She also answered a male who cut in line rather than the person next in line. She did not know what was available and did not show any compassion for international travelers. We were treated as cattle."
