Pros: "Plane was spotlessly clean, smelled nice, bathrooms also very clean and had toothbrushes and toothpaste. I requested the vegetarian meal and it was the best airline food I have ever eaten Flight crew was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working for Japan Airlines. I don't see that very often on any domestic US air carriers. I highly recommend Japan Air."
Cons: "Headset was too big for me and kept skipping back."
Cons: "I never like flying into Narita - each time I have to have my boarding pass reissued and baggage rechecked. I like the YVR process where you just put your bags on a conveyor after clearing customs."

Pros: "Amazing service"
Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Food and not so updated movies in entertainment."
Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"

Pros: "Food, seat comfort, service"
Pros: "Onboard service was perfect - prompt, friendly and professional"
Cons: "The cabin was always kept a bit warm"
Pros: "Meal, crew"
Cons: "1. inside temperature was so cold -especially at the 3rd route from la to tokyo -. 2. Economy seats are not declined, which means less pereonal space. 3. The worst is in-flight entertainment system, UI is so poorly developed, most contents do not provide english subtitles."
Cons: "Seat was tight and uncomfortable. Good was typical airplane food, adequate, not great."
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: "The crew was great, friendly and helpful. The food was good and the overall service on the plane was great."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Los Angeles and we did not make our connecting flight in Tokyo. The next option they had was a full 24 hours later so we ended up taking the train. I tried to make adjustments to one of my flights for the return home and was told that is not an option."
Pros: "I liked the midnight flight out of LAX; got to sleep at a normal time and arrived in Japan in the morning ready to go"
Cons: "Not much"
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: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"
Pros: "Outstanding service as always - ANA rocks!"
Cons: "Too many (redundant) service announcements. Suggest simplifying and keeping them short and less repetitive to avoid inconvenience, esp while enjoying entertainment."
Pros: "Great experience overall."
Pros: "Everything about this airline made my flight pleasant. The staff were polite and accommodating"
Pros: "Service by the crew and how boarding is organized by different queing lines for quick and more efficient boarding process."
Cons: "The personal entertaiment touch screen worked intermitently. When the touch screen did not work, i had to use the remote control to do what i want it to do. Boarding process experience can be improve with better sign for the queing lines and have boarding crew station at end of every quing lines to make sure all passengers are queing in the correct line."
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "Staff were amazing."
Cons: "Nothing great experience!"
Pros: "On time. Nice 787 Dreamliner. Very comfortable flight."
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: "Good food. The seats were spacious enough. I used both the pillow and blanket provided. Lots of drinks were served keeping everyone hydrated. Enough staff to manage the needs of everyone."
Cons: "How loud and aggressively the toilet flushes."
Pros: "The price was cheap ($100 for 2 people), and the service on ANA was great."
Cons: "Plane was a bit noisy, and it was a little confusing as to when we could board (but it was okay)"
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience. I enjoyed the food, the flight attendants were very nice, and I enjoyed the amenities as well."
Cons: "The flight back was amazing. The trip from Chicago to PHILIPPINES was good as well, though the plane was real small on the way to Manila."
Pros: "Quality of the planes"
Cons: "Nothing as far as human services. Thai used to be and I have flown Thai since i was a teenager, many many times. I used to every time get excited to fly with Thai. this time i had two Thai connections between Tokyo - Bankgkok and Bangkok-Delhi, both times my two young minor children were automatically seated away from me and each other also during checkin process. it took a lot of time and convincing the agent to get my own children seated with me on long international flights! Food service was worse than expect for name of Thai airways!"
Pros: "I like the cup holder ring and the coffee stirrer. Blanket thicker than United’s."
Cons: "It really has nothing to do with ANA per say. The check-in counter at LAX was unpredictable. I felt sorry for the elderly Japanese who had to wait for the counter to open"
Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."
Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."
Cons: "Food was too smelly. Good quality, but airplane food cannot be smelly or it get really unpleasant inside the cabin. Flight attendant need to learn and practice English. Very difficult to understand."
Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."
Pros: "The most impressive is consistenty great service from check in, in the air and online costumer service.. they are very pleasant , humble and genuine, always trying giving what you need."
Pros: "Overall experience was excellent. Seating as spacious in economy as I have had in some airlines' premium economy. Food was fresh and quite tasty although nothing to rave about. The staff are always a delight on ANA."
Cons: "The Hollywood entertainment options were limited and not very interesting."
Cons: "The seat in this airplane was downright uncomfortable."
Pros: "Clean, friendly and the 787 Dreamliner was great, be sleep with 2 different families little ones keeping me awake."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Interior show signs of aging"
Pros: "lunch was filling, ordered gluten free meal, received more food than expected, beef steak was good, potatoes nicely roasted, also got a side of large prawns (2) and a crab leg. Aircraft is a bit dated, seats hardly reclined beyond 10 degrees."
Cons: "Cabin is bit old, seats don't recline enough, smells musty."
Pros: "ANA has done well recently, with top notch offerings of food, flight crew, entertainment, and creature comforts. The food options consistently good (and I do enjoy the small touches like the candy at the end), and they are very friendly!"
Cons: "The music... it's catchy... but too catchy and I find myself whistling it for an hour or so after the flight!"
Pros: "The food they served was very unique and will ready you for a trip in Japan ( if that is the root you are taking it for) The entertainment options were overwhelming ( movies, games, and anime)"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Stuck in middle seat between 2 teenagers & reading light on top was on next to me the whole flight from Haneda to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Very kind flight attendants with amazing service!"
Cons: "They ran out of the two food options, so many people were stuck with the fish option. The entertainment section was just okay."
Pros: "For such a long trip, it was pretty comfortable. The flight crew was friendly and helpful and the food was good"
Cons: "The crew were not as friendly and welcoming, especially to coach passenger like me. There were too many announcements and interruptions. Not sure why but it was unnecessary to have too many, can't rest or sleep nor continue with viewing the entertainment provided. It seemed like a tired crew this time. The food was not good."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Seats need more padding -- perhaps an optional pad for some customers. It may be impossible to avoid literal butt hurt on a 14-hour flight, but an additional seat pad probably would have helped. Little Japanese woman next to me had one and I think she was quite comfortable."
Pros: "Great customer service and very kind staff!"
Pros: "5 stars all around 5 stars around"
Pros: "Service was amazing."
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that mostly everyone is bilingual there. It helped tremendously because I don't know Japanese."

Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."
Pros: "Crew is always awesome on ANA flights"
Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary. Every crew member goes above and beyond one's expectations. My wife and my kid had a lovely time and comfortable journey. Will definitely try to book this flight again in future."
Cons: "There was no Indian or vegetarian food. Luckily, my wife carried home-made food."
Pros: "A N A Very good, space between chairs is very good, crew very professional and friendly"
Pros: "Our seats did not recline, but were locked in the fully upright position, making it impossible to sleep. If this is policy for ANA, many customers will go to other airlines."
Cons: "I had to wait and take a two hour flight later because there wasn't enough time to take the shuttle to the domestic part of the airport.,"
Pros: "Although there was a little delay on boarding, everything went well and will fly with ANA again."
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and helpfu; the space between seats is noticeably larger than usual"
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "More snacks on a long flight would be good. Hot chocolate instead of tea and coffee would be appreciated by non-tea/coffee drinkers."
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, left on time. Chocolate cake was delicious."
Cons: "I would have liked rear and forward camera live feed to show actual flight"
Pros: "All the crews are awesome and very helpful, especially to the parents with young kid."
Cons: "More variety and quality of food"
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: "Everything was perfect !!"
Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"
Cons: "The ticketing agent told me I had a window seat, but in reality I had a middle seat! For a 14 hour flight, that’s a big difference! Highly disappointed when i got to the gate and the plane had no window seats available."
Pros: "Flight schedule in time."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "food, crew ."
Cons: "entertainment choices for Hollywood movies are limited."
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Very professional ground staff and cabin crew; very genuine and trained well. However, the first class food is absolutely subpar. Entertainment choices were great though & the lie flat seats are fab!"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Everything was perfect! From boarding the flight, decor, hospitality, clean, comfortable and my special meal selection was always right. The flight attendants greeted me before meals and insured me that they received my meal order."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."
Pros: "The food was amazing. Thank you!"
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again! Terrible customer service. Would not offer us complimentary airport hotel stay for a 19 hour layover. Wanted us to switch and pay to an earlier flight. Never again."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "If you can book Qatar Airways at a price competitive with any other major carrier then absolutely do - incredible service, plane, food, and overall experience that far exceed the competition."
Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "Crews and quality of food was great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean plane and airport. Only reason for choosing Qatar airways was cheapest fare."
Cons: "Few crew members attitude and services are highly unprofessional. Everything at Doha airport is way more expansive than neighboring international airports. Food quantity and quality in flights is below average. Security at Doha airport are highly unprofessional and have no respect for passengers and their privacy."
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Qatar airways 3 hrs short flight was spectacular at all levels"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, food was good."
Cons: "Lot of inconvenience for transit passengers, sitting area was closed, had to look around for a comfortable place to spend 4 hours."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Way to crowed and...you know how u see the clown car in a circus...this was a clown plane...seats are horrible just all together a frustrating flight..."
Pros: "This plane had lots of room and was comfortable. The food was good and unexpected. The amenities provided was thoughtful and useful."
Pros: "Food is awesome and plentiful. Crew is great. Plentiful entertainment options."
Cons: "The economy seats are just not comfortable. The entertainment system is glitchy"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."
Pros: "Relaxing areas"
Pros: "Customer assistance was outstanding"
Cons: "Not enough leg and elbow room."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "new hi speed wifi, seats"
Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."
Pros: "Nice crew and good equipment"
Cons: "Bad bad food very disappointing"
Pros: "Got lucky, and got an upgrade!"
Cons: "Good staff on the plane very sweet like. Actually arrived early. Thought we would get breakfast on the flight from Madison Wisconsin to New York City."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly crew, great service"
Cons: "I liked it all!"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Sitting as they had to fix a broken plane. Missing my connecting flight and getting in late."
Pros: "Small plane. Very good service. Did not suffer through the crazy multi level boarding calls that some airlines have. No super secret airline clubs that board first. Flying into the Marine terminal is the best part of the trip."
Cons: "The wifi didn't seem to work at all on the plane."
Pros: "I thought the seats were pretty decent."
Cons: "The food was gross, they ran out of 2 of the 3 choices. The entertainment system was old and not very responsive with a mediocre movie choices. My seatbelt was worn and the staff weren't that helpful. I had to take a shuttle and then recheck my bags and then walk for 15 mins to gate with 10- mins to spare. boarding was very slow and we left late."
Pros: "An excellent flight"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and not helpful. The checkin counter at the Sydney airport is hidden. Better signage would be helpful in locating the area"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, fast & efficient."
Cons: "It should have been made clearer that we had to check in at Delta & not Virgin Australian . We waited 45 min. in a holiday line we didn't have to. It was also difficult to find Delta at the Sydney airport. It was hidden in the back. We shouldn't have to wait 30 minutes for customs to open at LAX at 6 AM. I didn't like having to pay $2400 for a ticket when you dropped the price after the Paris incident & I found the same ticket would have cost me only $869. I should be reimbursed the difference. I also don't understand why we had to wait till 10:15 to sit inside the gate area. Directions for boarding should have been clearer."

Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late.

I was rebooked on an earlier flight to Charlotte, which I could do because I had coincidently finished packing early and lived close to the airport.

Pros: "The airline staff was friendly"
Cons: "Well I actually got to the airport 2 hours early. When we took off on schedule I never imagined we would fly for 40 minutes in the air and actually turn the plane around to land at the same airport that I left from! They said there was a mechanical issue with the plane. I spent 12 hours at the airport. It was an awful experience and I missed the celebration I was going to attend in New York.

Pros: "Everything was great until I arrived in New York LGA. The staff at Atlanta's airport were great from the curbside checkin agents to the wheelchair attendant and gate agents so that they 45 minute delay due to air traffic in New York was hardly noticeable. The flight attendants were pleasant and friendly and the food was delicious. We actually arrived ahead of our adjusted ETA, after a very smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon arrival in New York, the 3 of us who needed wheelchair assistance waited and waited for them to come. Finally, the gate agents rounded up some wheelchairs that were sitting around nearby just to get us off the plane and to the gate area. After waiting about 15 minutes, while hearing the gate agents being told repeatedly by the wheelchair dispatcher on the radios that they were coming and were passing through security, 2 female attendants finally arrived and they took the two elderly ladies and off they went, leaving me there waiting. I continued to wait, and wait, and wait for ANOTHER 25 MINUTES, total of 40 minutes after arrival at the gate. The same dispatcher lady continued to say that my attendant was on the way, passing through security for the entire 25 minutes. He asked me to change wheelchairs because he liked his better. He didn't offer to take my laptop bag and put it behind. He took off down the concourse before my feet were even on the footrests, with me holding my legs out in front of me because the footrests were up. After 20 or 30 feet, I got him to stop and let me get my feet down. I told him our luggage was supposed to be at carousel E, so he took me to "A". He asked me if any of the bags there were mine, and I said, "Why would they be here? I told you we were on Carousel E!" So then he wheeled me to Carousel E, and since it had now been almost an hour, it was empty. He asked an attendant where my bag would be, and was told to check at the office, which was back over by Carousel A. Upon finally checking with the personnel in the office, he came out rolling my bags and stood them by me for me to deal with while he just pushed the wheelchair. I had told him I was taking Uber, so he deposited me curbside near the taxi stand, which was not anywhere near where Uber could pick me up and was gone. FINALLY, after arriving earlier than expected at 3:25, at 4:43 I was finally picked up by Uber to go on home. What a nightmare! I thought the wheelchairs were supposed to be waiting upon arrival????"
