Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Typical JAL, nearly everything was fantastic."
Cons: "I don't think it could be made better but legroom on this flight was cramped. Certain planes in the JAL fleet have really cramped legroom and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment choices of selected movies were limited."
Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."
Pros: "great food, staff and service. I like it when i can brush my teeth on a over night flight with disposable tooth brush and tooth paste."

Cons: "The horrible JET LAG I have now lol."

Pros: "The fact that everything is included with the flight makes it very easy to fly with JAL. The staff was friendly and helpful when I was checking in.

Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."

Pros: "The best airline I have flown in. Plenty of room and the in-flight service was excellent."

Pros: "Best prices for quality service. If the prices for JAL are within $30, I will always select JAL."

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Pros: "The staff of ANA took superb care of us from the moment we entered the airport (both SEA and NRT); kindness, excellent food (choose the seafood diet, the food is excellent and you get served first!) and helpful directions in English whenever we looked the slightest bit confused. I will always look to fly ANA going forward. oh, and comfortable economy seats; enough room (I am 6'2") and no numb bum."

We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."

Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"

I don't know if mines was broken, for some of the graphics lay over each other and looked pixelated making it hard to choose what I wanted. I did not find the menu to navigate in the menu's very intuitive. Oh goodness, and rewinding went too fast. i found myself watching scenes over and over again cause if I were to fast forward, it would have gone too fast as well."

I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid.

Pros: "Attendants were polite and helpful"
Cons: "They damaged my luggage"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, decent seat size, decent leg space, lots of movie and TV options"

Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable and very close together. Very booked flight"
Pros: "It really was a fine flight. The complaints are minor."

Pros: "Crew was professional and very courteous. Helpful staff. Nice smooth flight over."

Pros: "The staff immediately address we have kids on board. They gave my boys the drawing pad and stuff to play with. They manage to serve meal within a 2 hours flight and that was amazing."

The flight delayed for an hour. boo! We already experienced delay when flying from Honolulu to Taipei. Not sure why their flights keep delaying."
Pros: "All of the staff were super helpful and friendly. Most were able to communicate in English as well. I would highly recommend requesting ahead of time a VOML (Oriental Vegetarian Meal). Although I was unsure of some of the asian vegetables used, all of the meals had a delicious flavor and always came with a side of fruit, a little desert, and a bun. For those skeptical of airplane food, this was definitely a safe bet!"
Cons: "That they do not show what zone is boarding on the TV monitor near the boarding gate, so you have to listen carefully through several translations. The entertainment system while on flight was a bit out of date (quality of the screen was a bit poor), but they did have several good viewing options. I also found that all of the planes did not have a/c controls that you can automatically adjust."
Pros: "Good staff got there on time"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and entertainment. Leg room was a bit tighter than what I'm used to. Otherwise decent flight."
Pros: "Very good."
Pros: "Upon check in, my request for an emergency exit row was granted. Chilly, but worth it!"
Cons: "They ran out of chicken meals, and I did not prefer the fish option."
Pros: "comfort of premium economy seating in 777 ER300"
Cons: "Food service not that good."
Cons: "Couldn't hear any of the inflight entertainment. With volume turned all the way up it was still very silent!"
Pros: "No recognition or privileges given as a loyal Silver Medallion member. Poor inflight service and customer service. Last baggage arrival at the destination."
Cons: "Everything mentioned above."
Pros: "The second leg of a trip (Taipei to SFO) was on a newer plane. Staff were courteous and prompt."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed. I was placed on another airline, but heavy weather delayed this by a bit over an hour. Somehow a very tight connection still was met, but my baggage did not make the connection. So far (one day later) they have located one of my bags and said it will be delivered soon. The other is still missing."
Pros: "The flight in Premium Economy is a good experience, worth the price of the ticket. I am accustomed to very long flights between Southeast Asia and Europe: this one compares favorably."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with the flight. Being a frequent flier I used the very short line in LAX to get my boarding pass. All other passengers were queuing up a very, very, long line. Since every single passenger has to go through a face to face session with a physical person, CI should really have more personnel available at LAX for the check-in procedures. The business lounge, provided by Korean Airlines, is a big disappointment. Food not worth mentioning. Going through security at TPE for passengers in transit there is no short line. The only line is very, very long, although quick enough. The facility for this procedure should also be renewed."
Pros: "I liked most of the crew. They were courteous and attentive. They were also very helpful in getting passengers situated and seated. I also like that when I had an issue with a crew member a manager and her boss both came to talk to me about what happened and offered apologies. They handled the situation with respect and class."
Cons: "There were two things I didn't like. First was that my on board entertainment set top was not working and I had to change seats. Once in a new seat though I was good and comfortable until a crew member had issues with my placement in an empty row that he wanted to use later in the flight to take a nap. What he did next was not nice, lacked communication and almost ruined the long flight for me. If it wasn't for the rest of the crew being great and his managers apologizing and listening to the full complaint I would probably have decided never to take China airlines again. Will I fly China airlines again? Yes, I will."
Pros: "Food & water were passed out on time"
Cons: "Too full, seats were so near each other"
Pros: "The food was decent and well timed. The entertainment was great. Personal tv. Great seat in the exit row."
Pros: "I love the friendly and helpful staff. Such nice people."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Im vegetarian and there is not options tu select special meals for vegetarians, instead Avianca from Salvador to LAX there have."
