Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew."
Pros: "The crew was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie choices were limited."
Cons: "Seat cushion could use more cushioning. Larger portions of drinks served"
Cons: "Good space with large seats. Good food and service."
Cons: "Had serious and consistent blockage to receive seat assignment from AAirlines. Round trip ticket with JAL but they code shared lax to tokyo with AA. Later AA refused to let me change THEIR seat assignment (3 scattered middle seats in economy). unless I bought an upgrade. They also said tic"
Pros: "Seating and service"
Cons: "Flight to Haneda airport not Narita"
Pros: "JAL flights to LAX are always great. Good food too."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Cabin and all associates accessories, seats and entertainment center needed replacement. Electrical outlets didn’t work. JAL retire that plane"
Pros: "Seats, movies, comfort"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"
Pros: "Friendly, clean. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to reserve a seat - apparently they don't allow Kayak customers to reserve seats now. I was forced into a middle seat and was uncomfortable and dehydrated the majority of the trip. Nice girl at baggage check said she'd ask a manager to move me, and to let them know at the gate, but the people at the gate said no. I felt discriminated against because I didn't book through them and/or I'm not Japanese. They historically love to put mushrooms in their food, like a fetish. This left me with one choice for the entree - some version of oyakodon - eggs and chicken. In my box there were two enormous chunks of fat/skin and another unidentifiable part of the chicken, and about the amount of edible chicken as 1 1/2 nuggets from Chick-Fil-A. There was more lotus root than chicken, so basically I had a box of rice and scrambled eggs with garnish. For the second meal, it was the Yoshinoya gyudon - a small serving of thinly sliced beef with rice. If I bought this fresh at a Yoshinoya restaurant, it would cost about $3. It's the rough equivalent of serving you a McDouble - cheap and filling and a coin toss if you get stomach pains. I lost that coin toss. Unless there is a big fare difference or I find out that their reserved seat policies are changed, I will choose ANA or another carrier. I used to enjoy JAL, but I cannot abide by idiotic decisions that seemed designed to punish people for using 3rd-party booking sites or who are not Japanese."
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Cons: "The attendants were very pleasant and efficient. I will certainly prefer to fly JAL, especially if you could offer the lower rates. On the down side, it was very difficult to contact their customer service line. However their online help desk was very responsive."
Pros: "On time Cleanliness"
Cons: "The food for people with special needs is horrible Most of the staff has poor communication in English on international flights"
Pros: "Thier food tasted excellent!"
Cons: "Wish there was a vegetarian option too."
Pros: "Able to accommodate many dietary requirements and friendly crew"
Pros: "Attendants appeared intolerant and impatient. Not the pleasant courteous crew flying into Japan."

Pros: "Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and long waits for restroom"
Pros: "The movies they offered."
Cons: "How long it took the flight attendens to come back and take trash and out trays for both of the meals. It made it super uncomfortable in the tiny space available. Also, not enough knee space, especially when the person in front of you puts there seat back. I flew with American Airlines on the way to Japan and I had plenty of room but I wish it was the same coming home."
Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
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."
Pros: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"
Pros: "everything, the courtesy of the entire crew, the way they show care and respect and compassion to the passengers especially the seniors"
Cons: "flight delays"
Pros: "Everything was perfect! Thank you for a great experience!"
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."
Pros: "Fare price was unbelievable. JAL and AA combined to make my flight very pleasurable and memorable. This first leg, on AA was smooth and allowed me to go to my connecting flight easy without having to go out of security and back into the international section of LAX"
Pros: "I am all right for travelling by Japan airlines this trips to Taipei. My hometown."
Pros: "I like everything about my flight"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "I forgot to make prior arrangements for a special meal due to allergy concerns. I notified the crew onboard, and they were attentive to my issue and helped me avoid certain foods which may cause an allergy attack."

Cons: "Nothing- except maybe the long trip. But if I have to take this long trip, I'd take it with them!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very friendly and polite. The seats in economy are generous and as comfortable as they could be in economy on a 10 hour flight. The two meals provided were pretty good for food served on an airplane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Service with a smile goes even longer for long flights. Excellent service throughout the flight. Loved the feeling of spaciousness, even in Economy. Great sleep as a result."
Cons: "Number of movies available in Entertainment was limited, especially compared to competitors like Singapore Airlines. Ran out of good choices on a long flight."
Pros: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."

Pros: "The crew's attention to detail, service."
Cons: "Sort of bumpy flight."
Pros: "Great 12hr flight"
Cons: "Loved everything!!"
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!!"
Cons: "Mid night snack can be improved, it’s too small a portion."
Pros: "Very caring, and pay full attention to passengers."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful, attentive crew; good amount of storage in business class; very good food with an excellent variety."
Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"
Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Pros: "Flight attendants were incredible!"
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "Their service"
Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"

Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The "meal" served about 1.5 hours after takeoff was just a very light snack. Nothing substantial. Could have been more food."
Cons: "cancelled, hard to rebook flight, staff unhelpful, rebooked on worse flight. very bad experience."
Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality and attention to detail."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."

Pros: "Crews' performance was good."
Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."

Pros: "Plane are clean"
Cons: "The food is really good"
Pros: "The food is better than United, and the flight attendants were nice and professional."
Cons: "The seats were so narrow. When a person in front of you pushes back their seat your space gets ridiculously small...same problem with my flight from LAX to Incheon... It looks like that the aircrafts for this 10+ hr flight are older (smaller seat space) than the ones used for a 1-1/2 hr flight between Incheon and Osaka. Also the terminal at LAX is so far away from Tom Bradley main building that we needed to take a bus and had to wait about an hour until we finally got our suitcases."
Pros: "Plane was on time and crew was courteous"
Cons: "Crew didn't come through the cabin enough to offer water and drinks."
Pros: "Asiana air is so nice, they give all customers slipper to feel comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Food is just so so and they should give snack for long flights."
Cons: "스튜어디스 분이 애들이 우니까 귀찬은 표정을 지으셧고, 애들 밥도 배식때 빼먹고, 애가 화장실 가려고 기다리는데 배식 차를 비켜주지 않아서 되게 오래 기다렸고, 결국 다른 엄마가 비켜 달라고 해서 비켜주고, 비행기 착륙전에 애기 우니까 따든다고 사탕을 갖구와서 안 먹겟 다는데 억지로 입안에 넣어 줬다."

Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "The flight from Korea to San Francisco was so late more than 2 hours"
Cons: "They changed our seat assignments, putting someone on the end of our row even though there were many other empty seats. As a result of the constriction, my feet and ankles swelled up. I can barely walk."

Cons: "No good Korean movies to watch."
Pros: "I love the new A380 but wonder why even a new plane comes with ashtrays in the bathroom..."

Pros: "I got delay which make me dont have enough time to check in at LA"
Pros: "Enjoyed flying on the upper deck of Asiana's Airbus A380. Seat was spacious and comfortable. Food was adequate and the options were good. Service from the crew was excellent. Entertainment options met expectations."
Cons: "Can't complain about boarding from Seoul to LA, but boarding from LA to Seoul and Manila to Seoul were a bit chaotic.

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

Cons: "Seats not comfortable for a long haul flights"
Pros: "Good seat - request granted"

Pros: "CX882, seat 44k would not recline. Made my journey a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight and service were excellent on all accounts including food."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized in Hong Kong. Passengers were not called in groups, and therefore, an unorganized line formed between seats. Staff did not clearly tell passengers when boarding was taking place, and where to form lines. I was very surprised."
Pros: "Nothing much. Travelling in economy class for long flights is always a miserable experience. I can't afford to fly business and I am compelled to travel due to personal reasons"
Cons: "With the new security rules for flights to the US, they took my water bottle at the gate during boarding. I was dehydrated during the whole flight. The small cup of water they give during the flight is not enough for me."
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: "Great food (probably the best I’ve had on a flight) and a fairly good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was good , but I observed that one aisle got a follow up of drinks more than my aisle. It made me wish that I was sitting in that aisle."
Pros: "Food was great. Crew nice"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "The wheel chair assistance came very late. This aspect can be improved further. It can be more efficient. Although wheel chair assistance is asked, the electric car to move people can also help to compensate for the wait times."
Pros: "Everyone that was part of the Cathay Pacific team was so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and quick to assist me outside the typical meal and drink service times. I flew economy and the seats were fairly comfortable. There were plenty of new films to choose from for entertainment as well."
Cons: "the person in front of me just laid down his seat for almost entire flight which made me to have no rooms people are switching seats without letting flight attendants to know. This is not fair for other customers"
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seat is hard to adjust."
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: "The overhead compartments are a good size. The staff was friendly. There was decent legroom in front of the seats. The food was more flavorful than most airlines."
Cons: "In Hong Kong there was an additional security checkpoint set up at the gate. I had to throw away all liquids I purchased. Usually, once you've cleared customs and security checkpoints you can buy food and liquids within the airport and board the flight. Not sure if this was an airport thing or an airline thing. Either way it was highly inconvenient and annoying"
Pros: "Best long flight ever! I could actually sleep - the crew tucked me in, I was so deranged I could not figure how anything worked but once they got me in snooze position, I was out. The food was horrible, but everything else was so wonderful, I did not care. Thank you for the amazing seat!"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Landed safely."
Cons: "Crew not very attentive to passengers. Seats are small and leg room is very cramped for a 13hour flight."
Pros: "My husband fainted twice and they are so nice to accommodate my husband to the first class section so he can rest and sleep well! Amazing crew and I thank each and every one of them for their concerns and kind heart!"
Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."
Cons: "Late boarding and departures from LA to CGK and from CGK to LA. Seats were uncomfortable for 14 hours flight. Very minimal service provided during flight, minimal isle check by flight attendent throughout the 14 hours flight. I had the rudest flight attendant, she didn't smiles. Asked for drinks but never return. My niece request for cup of noodle, instead she responded if didn't my niece had already one. I asked for beef dinner but she placed on my table a turkey instead stated she ran out after I told her that's not beef. Flight attendant yelled out loud to tell the passenger to seat down instead of approach the passenger."
Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. The layover was way shortest as compared to other competitor flights. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Staff were excellent Food"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour. Poor communication on delay/flight info."
Cons: "It's not pleasant traveling in economy which is true for all airlines now a days."

Pros: "I liked the time it took to arrive- the pilot was fast."
Cons: "Food quality was poor Boarding was late on all four flights The flight was extremely unsanitary - the dirtiest flights I have ever been on and I travel on airplanes at least ten times a year The crew was unfriendly"
Pros: "Good, entertainment, staff were nice."
Cons: "Not much to complain about."

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."

Pros: "From on-line checkin to baggage claim in LAX was easy."
Cons: "At the gate, we had to go through another security check, which was fine. But I had to surrender the water bottle that I just bought from the concession stand across from the gate.

Pros: "Direct flight to Los Angeles is convenient. Overall the flight crew was hospitable. The food was enjoyable and they keep restrooms clean"

Cons: "They don't call out any info for boarding; the seats are very tight and cramped; no leg room; no room to stretch in the aisles; I sat on the aisle and kept getting hit with the f&b cart; flight crew took too long using the bathrooms; took too long to get off the plane, I almost missed connecting flight; never fly them again!!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no blanket. No information re delayed flight or planning to make connecting flight to LAX, such as seating near front of plane, etc. Poor service, unprofessional."

Cons: "It was 2 hours late, postponed. Very old airplane. Food terrible."
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful. Food was enjoyable."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Got worse as hours went by. Business class in front of my seat sat empty the entire trip. I understand everybody cannot be upgraded but I paid extra for aisle seat and extra leg room. Maybe passengers that paid extra for seats could get an upgrade when available? It would have been a nice treat to be able to sit in a seat that was actually comfortable. I guess the padding gets worn down from all the passenger travel an that's understandable but for passengers with 13-15 hr trips, sleeping isn't an option really and the seats are just not soft enough. Perhaps a nominal $100 upgrade fee when seats are empty in business class? I'm assuming the reason business was empty is it's just too expensive? Maybe a price adjustment is in order rather than letting those seats sit empty? Overall, the flight was a pleasant experience. The seat situation was just a blemish on the trip. I will continue to use Philippine Airlines though probably in the future. Thank you."
Cons: "Boeing flight was changed to Airbus without notification"
Pros: "I like the flight times if they depart on time."
Cons: "They were 4hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Ground staff said don't worry someone will assist you and provide a free flight. After arriving in Manila, they ground staff said sorry nothing we can do, it's impossible. I was stranded thanks to PhilAir delays and they refused to help me. I was on time to the airport, they were delayed big time and wouldn't help when they have the ability to help."
