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: "The JAL flight was great. Seats were comfortable and leg room was very good. Crew was excellent too and very attentive."
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."

Cons: "Seat was too hard"

Cons: "11 hour flight! Can't do much about that"

Pros: "I love flying jal"

Cons: "flight delays"

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Cons: "Nothing really."

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: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."

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: "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."

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: "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"

Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "Noting"
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"

Cons: "Screen was small and movies start at certain times."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "All was great!"

Pros: "Crew was great, plane was modern and clean"
Cons: "We booked row 2 to be a quick entry/exit but they board this plane from the rear. No entertainment, so bring your own"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "More food would have been better"

Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"

Pros: "yes amazing crew! thank you so much!"
Cons: "perfect already!"

Pros: "Please read notes above -"

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Pros: "Decent meals, complimentary drinks including alcohol, more room between seats than some carriers"
Cons: "Seats are not as well padded as some carriers which becomes important on long flights. Heathrow gates are very long distances for anyone with mobility issues and switching terminals is confusing if not done regularly. Onboard staff was helpful. On board entertainment was free and varied. No WiFi?"

Pros: "I could not fly back to the US pr the layover. I got stranded in Berlin. It was horrible."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flights back to the USA and the connecting flight. It was horrible customer service when I spoke to British Airways at the counter. Lady in TXL yelled at me to leave her desk and to call Air New Zealand. Air NZ said they cancelled flights then Flyus.com said to deal with Air New Zealand and said my flights got cancelled and that they could not get me another flight. I had to find out how to get out of Berlin. I had to fly to Spain to my cousin’s home because I haf no where to go and did not have money to pay for another flight from Berlin to LAX 1,200 euros. I am still in Europe stuck and it is Monday 4/30. My son needs me in Los Angeles! I will never use Kayak again. What happened to my $878 dollars????"

Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."

Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"

Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and adjustable with tons of legroom. There was a bottle of water at our seat when we arrived, real pillows, and no more than two seats side by side. Bean bags to rest your feet on was a great touch."
Cons: "Touch screen system on entertainment system was very sluggish and unresponsive"

Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"

Pros: "The plane was new and the flight was good with no problems."
Cons: "Being a Star Alliance Gold member and Premier 1K on United Airlines I was expecting a bit more than water and a lolly. Yes, we did only buy the "seat" ticket, but come on a soda was an added cost. I don't see us flying AZ again anytime in the near future."

Pros: "Great flight and most notable was kindness and attentiveness of flight attendabts."
Cons: "Everything was well done."

Pros: "Did get noticed that the flight was cancelled and appreciate keeping me informed on that."

Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seats are unbelievably cramped. Not enough legroom or cargo room under the seats. It seems they put more seats in than the aircraft was meant to have. Made experience of 10 hour flight much more difficult."

Pros: "Excellent comfort in row 2 (extra leg room). Crew were very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was parked across runway and we had to get there by bus. (Terrible fumes) and then waited for more than an hour in board until we could get access to runway to take off. We did still arrive only 10 minutes late."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"

Pros: "I really like Air Newzealand!"

Pros: "Liked just about everything. Paid extra for upgraded Economy seats but it was worth it. Seats 35 A & B. Flight both ways very smooth and flight crew very accommodating. Have already recommended New Zealand Air to all my friends."

Pros: "Good with kids Clean new planes"

Pros: "New plane, direct flight"
Cons: "Outward flight had unfriendly staff. Return flight had staff that were invisible. You either get a mean mom or a negligent uncle, neither are optimal for flight crew."

Pros: "amazing accommodations and comfort with everything accessible for technology great staff, kosher means as i requested were on point, arrived late totally my fault, to both departing and arriving flights and they really did an amazing job making sure i get on the flight, international"

Cons: "Some of the crew were a bit pushy"

Pros: "Brand new plane, great leg room in coach. My next suggestion would be to buy "sky couch""

Pros: "A good amount of legroom (in economy!) and really pleasant staff."
Cons: "Paying $233 for an extra bag was ridiculous."

Pros: "Everything was good except"
Cons: "Seats were very crowded. Small walkway- difficult to get through with carry on baggage, difficult to pass, when attendants were helping and bent over to hand drink their body/ behinds were bumping into me"

Cons: "No vegetarian meal, lot of turbulance"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The monitors in our seats didn't work so we couldn't watch anything the whole flight. The light in our seats didn't work so we weren't able to read either. One flight attendant just seemed annoyed when we told him we about the issue. Another one was helpful and gave us a torch so we could at least read. We were given Air NZ vouchers for $120 but we weren't able to buy anything from the store."

Pros: "Food entertainment flight attendances were so helpful and perfectly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing was bad at all"

Pros: "The plane ride was smooth"
Cons: "Getting booked onto another flight and not having comfortable seats ( even though they overbooked our flight.) we went from Canada to New Zealand The flight attendant suggesting I was pregnant and I'm not just little fat."

Pros: "Excellent crew service. Food pretty good also"

Pros: "The crew, entertainment"
Cons: "The padding on the seats could be a bit more comfortable in economy, especially on 10 to 16 hour flights."

Pros: "Everything. Air New Zealand is by far the best airlines on the planet."
Cons: "Hahahaha, what didn't I like? Hahaha"

Pros: "We had extra room to spread out on the flight home."
Cons: "We booked 7 flights for two people almost one year ago throughout New Zealand and Fiji. Due to airline changes in time, at every single airport they had difficulty in accessing our flight information. They told us it was due to slight changes in flight times made by the airlines made it so that our reservations were not located even though they knew we were on the flight somehow. Very frustrating considering how much we spent on the tickets."

Cons: "Limited in amount of selection. I had a problem with resuming the movie, so I missed the ending."

Pros: "ON time!! As comfortable a long haul can be."

Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown with"

Pros: "The foot rest helped but did not come up as high as in the video so had trouble with my knees. If it had been level with the seat I could have slept."

Cons: "People should be able to recline their chairs whenever they want to."

Pros: "on time, plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Economy on Air New Zealand is better than the USA carriers, but still nothing to write home about."

Pros: "on board service, incredible flight attendants"
Cons: "Leg room on coach could be better"

Pros: "Decent flight, but not a whole lot was 'above and beyond' my expectations."
Cons: "Not many food options for Vegans. Entertainment TVs hard to used and looks outdated."

Pros: "liked free movies"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The in seat entertainment system was the best I've ever seen."
Cons: "Premium economy upgrade for $300/seat may not have been worth it. Still hard to sleep in seats."

Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "My cseat was completely broken. It did not recline at all. The head rest was broken.The entertainment screen did not work at all but was still on, so I had a dark but illuminated screen shining at me the whole time that I could not turn off. A very long flight in which I could not sleep and was in a lot of pain. Hands down the worst flight I've ever been on."

Cons: "Plane had no fuel so we had to wait 2 hours For it to refuel elsewhere. Then the crew ran overtime so we had to wait 3.5 hours for a new crew. From exactly where the plane had refuelled"

Pros: "Kind crew Left late but made up time in the air"
Cons: "Very crammed seats No entertainment even though I called and asked before the flight and was told there was"

Pros: "Flight crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seating, many screaming children in a very small area and nearly everything on Hawaiian Airlines costs lots of money. Not worth the high ticket price by any means."

Pros: "Complimentary items"
Cons: "Purchased headphones for a screen that didn’t work."

Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."

Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Loved the bbq chicken sandwich and chips for free. And the free rum punch drink!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."

Pros: "I like the space and comfort of the seats"
Cons: "That you had to pay to watch a movie.american doesn’t charge for that. But overall it was a good experience"

Pros: "On time,friendly staff."
Cons: "No room,food so so, way charge for entertainment?"

Pros: "Staff was friendly. The safety video was nice."
Cons: "No vegetarian options, no entertainment options"

Cons: "Sure don't like paying for baggage and watching movies! Those items should both be free!!!!!"

Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."

Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."

Pros: "Great staff and overall very enjoyable..."
Cons: "No entertainment.... really? You can't offer a movie or tv show for free?! That's really silly. Also, my bag got DESTROYED. Cracked, torn, wheels pulled off. Pretty ridiculious. Can't believe I had to pay to check my bag and now have to throw it out and buy a new one!"

Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."

Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"

Cons: "I was unable to select a seat within the 24 hour window prior to departure, other than paying an $80 upcharge for an aisle seat. On the phone the day prior to departure, I was told by the HA agent that "the airport controilled seat assignments" at that timne so she could not help me get a seat, and that the extra charge option on the website was the only choice I had. This process struck me as bizarre/dishonest. I will not be back unless I can select a seat prior to booking."

Pros: "I liked that they serve meal in a short intrastate flights.Service was wonderful."
Cons: "screaming and unruly kids and their parents who think it's cute that they act so totally out of control."

Pros: "No food and uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "The flight with Jet blue to Los Angelos was so uncomfortable"

Cons: "Too strong a/c. So cold."

Pros: "I like the crew coming back from Hawaii. They were very friendly and accommodating and had a sense of humor. This was on the 2:50 pm flight from Honolulu to LAX. I did like having a meal on the plane that was free and complimentary wine. Thanks!"
Cons: "I did not like the check-in process at the Honolulu airport. It was a hot mess. Lots of flights going out at 2:00 pm. and the lines were confusing! Very few were directing us. We saw big signs that said: step 1, step 2, and step 3 but no real designation for anyone to follow. TSA pre-check should be clearer. If you are going to another island or if you are going to the Mainland, be clearer which line to get in. Bigger signs please. This was a chaotic self check-in. Thank goodness I came to the airport 3 hours early. Much better organization at the LAX airport."

Pros: "Very courteous staff."

Pros: "loved the staff!"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There was a long line to TSI check in. We almost miss our flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Limited entertainment unless you pay more."

Pros: "The crew were nice and expedient."
Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was great, plane was clean. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "We were placed in an section of the plane with several small children, of which at least one at all times was crying or screaming. Seriously, the entire 9 1/2 hour flight. One vomited before takeoff, so the plane smelled of vomit and dirty diapers. I would prefer to be either on a flight with no children, or where families with children were placed separately from folks without children. The food, while nice of Hawaiian to offer, is not great. I'd rather have some fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, if given a choice. But, having flown with Hawaiian before and knowing that they try to serve "local style" food, I just don't eat it and bring my own."

Pros: "On time. Handicap treatment"
Cons: "Legroom. With such little space, seats should not be able to recline."

Pros: "They serve real food and don't charge you extra!"

Pros: "The seats were comfy at least"
Cons: "No free snacks. I can't believe that on a 6 hour flight we weren't Given at least a bag of chips free of charge : $3.00 freaking dollars for chips!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very sweet and happy and the plane itself was nice and new. The complimentary meals were a huge plus as well"

Pros: "Faster than scheduled. It's creative to combine Hawaii's landscapes and activities in the safety video before plane takes off."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Seas are horribly cramped making for a very uncomfortable red eye experiences. Cabin crew were police but nowhere near friendly."

Pros: "There just seemed to be very little leg room for anyone who is average sized. The seats are kid and petite adequate but not the average height person. The seat cushion was also lacking for a 6 hour flight. Overall the flight was great and the service was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Pros: "Very helpful and friendly staff at the airport and onboard the plane!"
Cons: "On the Honolulu to Las Vegas leg of our journey ... sales of snacks... before the delivery of small but good crackers and juice...They have to make money where they can (I did not purchase)"

Pros: "The flight was amazing. Checking in was easy and the code worked easily. The airplane seemed new and the attendants were super nice and had great attitudes. I will fly more often with Hawaiian Airlines"

Pros: "service was excellent. lovely flight attendants."
Cons: "Entertainment was expensive. No vegetarian meals."

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "No usb. no lcd screen"

Pros: "The service and accommodations were fantastic. Comfortable inside. Food is always a plus. The one thing was that it was expensive. The ticket was about even but to buy any entertainment was pricey. No issue if you bring your own."

Pros: "I always love flying Hawaiian, nice planes, nice flight Attendants, they are always on time or early. Their food and beverage service is great too!!!! It's always a pleasure to fly with them. I make multiple trips per year."

Cons: "Suggest online check-in providing change seat options"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did what they could."
Cons: "Economy seats are so cramped that the couple (who were strangers to me) seated next to me (i was in the window seat) decided to 1) one would sleep prone on the floor in the foot portion of our row; and 2) the other would rest his head on ME and the armrest, stretching out on their seats. Greeeaat."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Smooth, uneventful travel all was well."

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."

Pros: "The flight attendants in the airplane, both going and coming back to my destination were very nice. I really appreciated their hard work and attentiveness."
Cons: "At the HK airport the lady attending the check in, I believe her name is Tammy, I could not understand exactly what she was asking me to do because her voice was so low and her English was not clear. When I did not comply to what she was asking she very rudely did what she was asking me to do yet I could not hear or understand her. She even rolled her eyes. Very uncalled for and rude."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."
Cons: "The food was really not at the level you would expect. There was only a pork and a fish option. The fish was fishy and the dessert was gelatin cake thing that did not appease my dessert craving."

Pros: "All was good until missed connection"
Cons: "Missed connection due to late arrival. CP switched us to AC. 7 hour layover"

Pros: "We boarded on time. Again, cabin crew was nice, courteous, and professional. Flight was not full- therefore, no passenger present next to me. Did not eat either meal- therefore, can not vouch for them; however, did have a cup of noodles. Again, the variety of music was nice."
Cons: "Again, airport crew leaves a lot to be desired."

Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "old plane"

Pros: "The crew is bilingual and they work and move fast"
Cons: "Flight CX882 Seat 59K the food tray does not stay up, food keeps sliding to the right. Both departing and returning flights ran out of free gifts as stated for the purchase of Laneige skin care products. Food selection is less desirable compared to other Asian airlines. Inside the crew food storage/service area looks old and dirty. I can see the area from my seat."

Cons: "Flight arrived in LA 30 minutes late. Then had to wait another 30 minutes for a gate to open. All in all, the flight arrived 1 hr late which is very inconvenient and annoying. And the crew isn't has friendly. The boarding time in Hong Kong took a very long time"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed the connection"

Pros: "Overall is good."

Cons: "Very delayed"

Cons: "Food was good but could be better. Healthier, purer"

Pros: "Had 4 pairs of eye glasses taken from my golf bag. ! prescribtion, i pair reading and 2 pairs of sunglasses. bag was left open and contents spilled into the golf carry bag. Why did this happen and who did it??"

Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"

Pros: "I was seated around a number of sick people - and it was a middle seat so hard to get up since there was pretty much no space"

Pros: "American pilots"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The business class seating is all lay flat and all seats are isle seats."
Cons: "A medical emergency required us to land in Vancouver delaying our flight into Lax by 1-1/2 hours. I missed my next flight and lost my 1st class seat. No help was offered."

Pros: "I expected Cathay to be great since it was ranked as the #4 best airlines in the world."
Cons: "However, I didn't find anything better than mediocre airlines. The attendant was kinda cold, service was rough, and toilets get dirty quickly."

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: "Everything was great. The crew was polite and helpful throughout my flights. The food was good, tasty and hot! Had some newer movies available."

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."

Pros: "The pilot kept us informed. The food was good. The Moon Cake provided to help us celebrate, even though we were traveling, was an added example of why Cathay Pacific is the standard that everyone else is trying to emulate in Tourist class. The L.A.-based cabin crew provided outstanding service throughout the flight. The in-flight service manager made me believe she cared about the quality of the service in the back, which was outstanding. It was as good as a full, 13-hour flight could be. Even the in-seat entertainment was outstanding and reliable."
Cons: "The boarding process in Hong Kong was terrible. It was absolute chaos. If it had not been for then complete turn around after we were on the plane, it would have been the beginning of the flight from hell."

Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "The sound did not work for my video, the food was not good, the seat was uncomfortable, and my stewardess was rude."

Pros: "Seating in standard coach compared to premium economy on US airlines. The seats reclined back enough that I actually was able to sleep most if the 13-hour flight. Meals were very good for economy. Cabin crew super polite and patient, which I've come to notice as a standard on Cathay. As an example, I have a good intolerance to shrimp/prawn. My outbound flight LAX-HKG, the dinner salad included shrimp. I explained i could not eat the shrimp. The attendant was kind enough to swap it with a leftover vegetarian salad."
Cons: "Trying to setup special meals to avoid food allergies is non-existent. Cathay offers many special meals, excluding food allergies or low-carb. I attempted to call in to Cathay to explain I could not have shrimp/prawn. The rep either did not understand or could not help. I really wished Cathay offered a pre-arrival meal like the other airlines. LAX-HKG and HKG-LAX are 13+ hours. Cathay offers a departure meal and a mid-flight meal. But by arrival time, I was starting to get hungry again. Thank God, I had enough of a layover, even with CBP processing, to grab a quick bite before continuing an additional 6-hours to home with no time to eat."

Pros: "Overall, excellent service for its Marco Polo club member! I paid USD $100 to join the club. And it is much better than my experience with EVA (diamond member, 4 yrs) and United (gold member)."
Cons: "Just join its Marco Polo club and see for yourself."

Cons: "I didn't like the Hindu meal that was offered to me but other then that everything was next to perfect ."

Pros: "Its a long flight from Hong Kong to LAX. It appears that the crew is so organized that it does not appear to be as brutal as it is."
Cons: "Traveling to and from Jakarta on Cathay Pacific the most challenge i had was not being able to hear the movies. There was something wrong each time. The staff tried to repair it with no success. All and all that is a minor thing. Its also a small thing. I wish passengers wouldn't be such slobs. Even tho the crew comes by often and regularly, people leave a mess behind them. Kinda sad. Its as if some feel they are supposed to treat crew like servants. Your staff as always, don't complain just go about there responsibilities with a smile."

Cons: "my luggage didn't go with me"

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."

Cons: "We had to go through the security twice. One the bags we scanned and the other before getting into the airline. Was a waste of time."

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: "More drink and food choices."

Pros: "Not like but was okay with the leg room, comfort and entertainment on board the aircraft."
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: "Nothing"

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: "Cramped in cattle class but that's not Cathays fault. I need to earn more to fly comfortably"

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."
Cons: "there was a layover which cathay pacific did not account for as this layover was too short and resulted in me having to take a later flight. that was a real inconvenience which delayed my arrival time in los angeles. that was one of the major tick off during this part of the trip"

Pros: "Service was excellent."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Just a long flight. But that's not in anyone's control. So no complaints."

Pros: "On time, very efficient and polite crew, excellent landing - cheers to the pilots"
Cons: "Food taste awful Too few toilets mile long walk to the gate"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was very smooth and arrived early"
Cons: "All I got for breakfast was a muffin, they ran out of fruit and yogurt before they got to my seat"

Cons: "The most uncomfortable experience ever! I was disturbed and/or woken up several times, during flight, by the flight attendances to place my seat in the upright position to accommodate the person sitting behind me who either wanted to drink alcoholic beverages every hour on the hour."

Cons: "0"

Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable,"

Pros: "The distance between the seats in economy is inhumane."

Pros: "premium economy! excellent service in LAX by QF ground staff on transfer"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful, and the food options for vegetarians were great, and the entertainment selection was great."
Cons: "My seat did not recline, but I told a flight attendant and I was able to get a better seat."

Pros: "Excellent food and service."

Pros: "Crew was nice, seat not so comfortable"
Cons: "too crowded for such a long flight"

Pros: "Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies."
Cons: "Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts."

Pros: "Generous & kind flight crew, lots of in-flight entertainment, and a smooth and timely flight."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "One stewardess said I could fill in an empty bulkhead seat (Row 50) after we were airborne and the seat belt sign was off. So I moved, to be removed by Sarah (stewardess) and put back in Tow 75. Then she put two of her friends in Row 50. When I walked up later to get my bag, there was still an empty Row 50 seat, but her friiends’ purses were in the seat, and they reluctantly removed the items when I insisted to sit there. Sarah should have left me in Row 50 and not made me move back to 75."

Pros: "Showing their age. Forget WiFi or USB ports. Food ok but can be vastly improved."

Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"

Pros: "Clean, timely, organized, good food, good entertainment, smooth... Aussome! :)"
Cons: "My remote in my arm rest (58D) was a bit broken. While it still worked, the flap was missing some screws to hold it in place. Also, the touch screen oftentimes had issues sensing my finger on the pause button. Overall it did not hinder me from enjoying the entertainment services provided."

Cons: "Seats are old and small. Not worth the cost of business class ticket. Dreamliner a million times better than a380"

Cons: "Check in personal at Australia was very bad attitude and service"

Pros: "We sat on the runway for an hour. The pilot communicated frequently about the delay. Efforts were made to connect passengers to their missed connections."
Cons: "Several of the flight attendants were rude. The food was not good. I should have known since the flight attendant serving me had not tried any of the options and couldn't recommend any to me. The plane does not have enough bathrooms for the number of passengers."

Pros: "Qantas is a quality airline and provided us with better service than most USA airlines that we typically fly for about the same pricepoint. We were very impressed by the quality of service, the meal and entertainment offerings- it was a nice memory of how flying with USA airlines used to be in the good ol days. We flew economy so nothing special was added to our basic service."
Cons: "All was good, would fly them again should we need to travel their routes again. We flew 2 international flights and 4 domestic (within Australia) flights during our stay in Australia and had great experiences on all the flights."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process for economy passengers."

Pros: "I like the A380 plane, the respect that the crew provide, the quality of the food, and the variety of entertainment"
Cons: "I would loike more music concerts on the entertainment system"

Pros: "Liked the food, flight attendants, entertainment and overall comfort even though it's just economy. You just have to come prepared with what you need to stay entertained and comfortable ie snacks, comfortable clothes and shoes, jacket or sweater, pillow, headphones, music. Better of you can bring your own headphones that use bluetooth and headphone jack cable."
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic at best and starts 20 minutes before take off. It works but it's very chaotic for economy passengers. I am sure it's much easier and nicer for premium economy and business select and first class passengers so you get what you pay for lol."

Pros: "Good was good"
Cons: "I sat in seat 77c the seat in front of me had something broken so my seat table kept falling down. Other than that it was good"

Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."

Pros: "The way your seats reclined: back/head your typical recline but add your seats bottom sliding forward. Best sleep I have ever had while in International economy. Sadly our plane to Australia from Los Angeles did not have the same seats. Entertainment selection excellent ! Great line up of brand new and older movies. I was able to use my noise cancelling headphones in your jack which was a big plus."
Cons: "Paying an extra $30-35 just to choose a seat. Enjoyed sitting in the back of the plane however meal selection was terrible as the front of the plane always fed first so by the one it was our turn there was only one option - terrible “southern chicken” Or the Greek Inlet Which was just ok."

Pros: "All the food. Service was good."
Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."

Cons: "Very hot in the Flight to LAX. Crew was trying to do a good job, just didn’t see them much. Food was bad. Will think twice about booking with quantas again ☹️"

Pros: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."
Cons: "The food was horrible. It’s hard to believe the airline would serve food like that. The flight is long and hard enough as it is. The “snack” options listed are not available. Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."

Pros: "The entire staff was wonderful and friendly!! Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"
Cons: "We had a delay as they could not get the lift for food to put onto the plane, so we were delayed 1 hour. Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"

Pros: "Again, cabin crew is friendly and no last minute gate changes,"
Cons: "The food was gross, which could be a just a cultural difference in food tastes. There were no functioning USB charger ports on the return flight even though the ports were present. No wifi, which is a first. Most airlines I fly on these days always have some type of wifi. Lastly, the 'touch-screen' on the seat for entertainment barely worked. Buttons didn't work no matter how much you touched them. There was a delay and the selection of movies and tv were pathetic. I will not be flying Qantas again."

Pros: "The food and the crew were very good!"
Cons: "The seat had a large box at my feet and the headset/charger didn’t work at my armrest, which meant I had zero audio for the entire flight."

Pros: "The staff was so attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The seats could use a little more leg room"

Pros: "Flight crew were not enthusiastic about their job. Need to do service with a smile & not act like we are burdening when a request for certain service was made."
Cons: "Plenty of movies to watch"

Pros: "I didn't die; also was able to change from middle seat to aisle"
Cons: "- unable to check in online - unable to check in at kisok at airport - belts broke while waiting to drop bag, took forever - there was a leak above my seat, water kept dripping on me - only 1 of 3 options available for dinner meal, did not get the one I wanted; chicken was disgusting - person in front of me was given first choice of breakfast since he didn't get his dinner choice, I was not offered the same preference - my breakfast choice ran out right before the attendants got to me, got screwed again - crew did not apologize or make it up to me"

Pros: "I watched heaps of movies and programs."

Pros: "I like the services"

Pros: "the flight left on time which is always a boon, and the crew were efficient, altho i got the sense that they had done it all many times before, and they were only going thru the motions. the flight was incredibly full, so little room to move around, and leg room is a definite challenge! the bathrooms were good, they didn't smell like most airlines do! Food was generous in portion size, and there were yummy snacks also."
Cons: "the aisles in the plane were very narrow, so getting up to go to the bathroon with everyone else became a challenge! apart from the narrow aisles and the lack of leg room it was a good flight."

Pros: "Excellent service but surprised that the entertainment system was a bit old and the food tried to be too fancy but the quality was lacking."

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "charging extra money for seat selection cabin service"

Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Flight attendants were the best. Everything about the flight was perfect. Also, I didn't even realize we had landed it was such a smooth landing."

Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."

Cons: "cabin has too many seats on the lower deck."

Pros: "They made us sit in the plane for close to 4 hours without any food. I almost passed out as the plane was so warm (AC broken) and they didn't give us anything except a small cup of water. The delayed made me miss my connection which couldn't be rearranged."
Cons: "Good was awful but I appreciated that they had gluten free options."

Cons: "You cannot choose and secure your seat. I was not given the seats I was assigned at the time of booking. The food on quantas is also bad. Moreover, the flight attendants left the food in front of us for nearly An hour after service. I ultimately, in order to use the bathroom, had to remove my own tray."

Pros: "The crew was lovely. Food was good, but the presentation is not what it used to be. Rushed. Flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "Plane was a little dated. Boarding the flight in Sydney was a bit chaotic. No fruit like they usually have. Not everything on the menu card was provided."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked flying with Qantas, crew service was okay, food was okay, however, ticketing agents were very helpful during both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Crew was a little rude to cabin passengers, airline points didn't transfer well, and food was a little bland."
