Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"
Pros: "I like the food best.."
Cons: "Hope there will be more tracks from arashi."
Pros: "The staff"

Pros: "The food is very delicious. I can choose a lot of great movies. The space is also big to move."
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
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: "A meal on a two hour flight is an amazing perk!"

Cons: "The main entree was not very good."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I'm an entertainer, very well respected in Hawaii, Japan and the world. and has always traveled JAL. I travel with my guitar and has never had a problem carrying it on board. The staff will usually come a get it and put it in the closet if it didn't fit in the overhead. But I guess recently rules change, and was told I would have to check it in because the closet space is used only for staff and business people. Was told that the 737 was to small for my guitar won't fit overhead. I have taken 737's all my life with Aloha Airlines and told them that my guitar would fit. That gentleman was a JERK! and was'nt very helpful, and told me I couldn't take it on board and I would have to take it to the package store and have them box it up. That spoiled my whole vacation."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Not a lot of vegetarian options"
Pros: "It seemed more spacious. Food was pretty good."
Pros: "I like the food they served during the flight. It very well-thought meal and delicious at the same time. I also like the latest movies on board. We also arrived 20 minutes early! It was absolutely smooth and relaxing flight."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "great service and help with everything!!"
Cons: "Only 30 people were not priority boarding (including me). Not being Japanese makes you a second class citizen on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "The most polite staff that I have ever met. Very accommodating and concerned about our ride over the pacific ocean. I am a vegetarian and forgot to fill order my meal online. The staff was amazing in handling this, offering me everything else they had that wasn't meat. The economy seats were the most comfortable i can remember for an over night flight."
Cons: "The only critique that I would have is on the first flight, they took a while to get our dinner trays, but the second flight was prompt. This just be due to my seat being all the way up front."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Even with the unusual dislikes on this particular trip I would fly again on JAL. I would give this trip a 9.4 / 10."
Cons: "Checking in 48 hrs in advance with no aisles or windows seats for selection. Being stuck in the middle seat 26F for 9 hours. Discovered in LAX that my luggage tags were improperly tagged in TPE. I had someone else's luggage tags on my bags going From TPE to KIX to LAX to Houston instead TPE - KIX- LAX- Austin."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Stay safe"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "N A"
Pros: "The second flight was perfect."

Cons: "More room"
Pros: "Friendly crew, 747-8 upper deck window seats in business have lots of storage at the under window bins"
Cons: "I was looking forward to flying a 747-8 again, it’s a nice aircraft but I found it more noisy than 787 and 350. Meals were very Asian oriented, entertainment had limited options. Had expected better on such a comparative route across the pacific"
Pros: "Food choices was very limited to beef and fish. We had a connecting flight for international and both leg has the same food choices."
Pros: "Crews are always super well trained."
Cons: "Between continental flight need more movies, in my perspective"
Pros: "For economy class it has been the best experience, mainly because seats were a little more roomy than other airlines I’ve flown with."

Cons: "Old aircraft. Limited food selection on business menu. No Arabic announcement despite flying to and from Dubai."
Pros: "Disclaimer: we flew business class. Regardless, our check-in was seamless, Incheon is a beautiful and easy airport, all the flight crew were responsive and pleasant. We flew China Eastern and dealt with Shanghai airport on our flight out and I would avoid doing that again at great cost!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "I love that you get meals and snacks. A lot of airlines really skimp on this, and you are left miserable, hungry, and thirsty. Korean Air will bring you drinks outside the service times set. Free additional bottles of water as well. The service is excellent, the meals are good, and I absolutely love that you get slippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, and even free headphones should you forget yours. Top service! Good meal portions! I also like that you have 3-4 different meal or snack options each service. CLEAN BATHROOMS!!!! Also, the flight attendants are very polite and courteous. You never feel like they just don't care. They even help with families traveling with small children. A+ guys!"
Cons: "I really have nothing negative to say about this airline. They are my favorite, and I fly with them every time I am able, 7 times international to date."

Cons: "No vegetarian option for the meal"
Pros: "On time, clean, friendly, comfortable, helpful."
Cons: "not comfortable with the seats"
Pros: "Food and service was exceptional."
Cons: "Boarding was a joke. They were very sure to make you feel inferior to business & first class. And then the boarding was a cluster. A Korean culture thing I guess."
Cons: "Coach seats were adequate, but for a long flight it is hard to be really comfortable."
Pros: "They are family oriented."
Cons: "On the way to Seoul the children were screaming but I guess there's nothing anyone could do about it."
Pros: "Had a fantastic time, it exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "I have flown many times with many airlines, and I must say that Korean Air is by far THE BEST. From staff to food to entertainment. They crew will go out of there way to do what they can to ensure you have a comfortable and good experience. I will DEFINITELY fly with them again. Kayak was very user friendly also."
Cons: "The flight was very lomg, but nothing could be done to remedy that."
Pros: "Crew is rather polite and courteous."
Cons: "On-board entertainment system wasn't working until 5min into the air."
Cons: "The waiting and boarding procedure -- either at Bangkok Airport or at Seoul Airport, I forget which -- is a little unusual. A written description of this would have been helpful along with the boarding passes."
Pros: "Everything works fine except the language that has been used to communicate between the passengers and the staffs."
Cons: "It would be better to speak more in english than in their native language for proper communication between the crew and the passengers."
Pros: "All of the people from Korean Air that I spoke with were very considerate and helpful."
Cons: "No legitimate complaints."
Pros: "Loved the slippers toothbrush toothpaste Liked the in flight meal Entertainment was great Roomy and comfortable. My seat wouldn't recline so they let me sit in the back seats reserved for the crew so I wold be able to recline and sleep in the long flight to Korea."
Pros: "crew, entertainment, overall a great flight(s)"
Cons: "air so dry in cabin"
Pros: "Everything up until I got to Hawaii and switched to them."
Cons: "The code share airline"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't like my seat, no place to put my things, like a seat pocket. No complimentary water bottle like in the previous flight. The food choice I wanted ran out. The choice left was not good."
Pros: "I liked everything about my flight from the attendants to the food. Overall, it was a great experience. :)"
Cons: "special meals especially Hindu meals non vegetarian"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient and the crew was nice, polite, and mostly spoke English, which is a huge benefit. The crew provided a pillow+blanket combination, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, several snacks, and lots of drinks including wine. As for entertainment, the flight includes several movies, tv shows, music, and games for free. I would definitely recommend Korean Air to a friend, but I would recommend that friend to bring a custom neck pillow."
Cons: "Although the crew dimmed the lights during the flight, I could never get comfortable enough in my chair to sleep. The chairs do not support the human body, they only offer rollercoaster type padding. There is no neck support, and the pillow handed out by the crew is too big to be used as a back or neck support. Even lying back, the chairs are uncomfortable. The food could have had some warning labels in English on them. Since I'm lactose intolerant and unable to read Hangul, it's difficult for me to pick food I can eat without problems."
Pros: "Service counter check in was very helpful"
Cons: "The flight attendant didn't speak much English also they didn't tell the passengers to ascend the seat when serving the food."

Cons: "The seats could be bigger"
Pros: "Wide variety of entertainment choices made time go much faster."
Cons: "It would be better if it was on time"
Cons: "Ontario Airport for international arrival is confusing. I think this has to do with more the airport than the airline...although the airline could have helped too. There is no one to ask questions once you exited the security area. The signage is incorrect for airport shuttle to the parking lots. In order to get to the parking lot, one would need to first take a rental car shuttle to the regular terminal and then change to an airport shuttle."
Cons: "Would fly China airlines again"
Cons: "Could have a better"
Cons: "Smell was so bad"
Pros: "Cabin fitout is cozy and comfortable. Great service onboard and free WiFi for Premium customers"

Pros: "Food is surprisingly not bad, with entertainment is a plus."
Cons: "luggages delayed for nearly one hr. Many ppl waiting for luggage at the luggage bell"

Pros: "Fly China airlines you won't be sorry"
Cons: "They damaged my luggage"
Cons: "Older entertainment system and still decent"
Cons: "I dont eat pork and both meals have pork in it."
Cons: "Curry chicken noodles"
Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."

Pros: "Very good."
Pros: "Entertainment - good choices of movies and newer LCDs."
Cons: "Compared to Delta where they proactively offer unli cocktails and drinks to business class and comfort, I've never had one offer in my return trip. Had a technical malfunction twice which caused me to miss my 7am connecting flight by 2 mins. The next plane didn't even bother to wear for 2 mins even if they caused the delay. They gave a 250NT lunch voucher and asked to what til the next flight in the afternoon. That was the longest flight I experienced coming from New York."
Cons: "missing baggage"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed"
Pros: "The crew didn't nag that I can't watch a movie on my mobile, even during take off and landing. That's highly appreciated. I also could tallies my GoPro during the entire flight, no negative comments from the crew, unlike many other regional carriers here."
Cons: "The IFE screens are very small and dated. There are big IFE boxes under the seats limiting your feet real estate. Food was mediocre at best."
Cons: "Chose western style dish, not very good."
Pros: "Amazing. Cant wait to go back on this 777 airplane!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Food was good."
Pros: "See Above"
Cons: "See Above"
Pros: "That's all I got"
Pros: "Lovely staff!"
Cons: "Was freezing at times, AC was too high, but otherwise great!"
Cons: "Delayed boarding and take off."
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Pros: "Pretty efficient for a completely full flight."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Cons: "A toilet had no water. The internet was not working for the whole flight"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Cons: "I paid $70 for a seat upgrade, and it showed on my boarding pass as “EXIT” (exit aisle) with 6 inches of extra legroom when I purchased the upgrade in London. By the time I arrived in Dallas, the “EXIT” indicator on my boarding pass disappeared. When I boarded the plane there was no extra legroom and row 16 was not an exit row: rows 14 and 15 were. I endured a less comfortable trip, and now have to go through the pain and effort to get a refund. Good luck to me..."
Pros: "Crew was polite, Captain was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Pros: "The Seats have a nice width and a nice forward-to-back pitch. They're also brand-new upholstery. Very nice"
Cons: "American Airlines concourse in Charlotte is awful. Standing room only, and under construction. No power outlets in the plane."
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Pros: "I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "American knew it had a problem and never resolved it - delaying our flight by minutes every few minutes - we had 38 text messages indicating a change. In addition the crew "aged out" so we had to get a second crew - waited for that. the first plane had a mechanical, the second plane had a mechanical - more lengthy delays then finally the last plane was fine - but was again delayed by yet another hour for a total of 7 hours delay. Our compensation? Non existent."
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Pros: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was great."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from start to finish. On time departure. We did have to wait for a gate to open up in San Jose. It was a completely full flight."
Cons: "No gate being available upon an on time arrival."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Pros: "1, Crew are very attentive 2. Great seat"
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "I had a family member enter the hospital 5 hours before take off. I got a full refund, even though I didn't have trip insurance."
Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew were very nice. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. Even unedited movies!! Great."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for a half hour before it was marked as "delayed" and then it was delayed another half hour. If I had known it was going to be an hour late I would've been able to eat a proper dinner. They seemed to be out of every normal drink on the drink cart."
Pros: "Staff was kind."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."

Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Main cabin extra leg room."
Cons: "Barely any help with delayed flight and connecting flight. Had to say a prayer and sprint through DFW to make the connecting flight."
Pros: "I missed my previous flight, and even before that my day was going pretty bad. I was quickly routed to the desk to get a replacement ticket, and even though the flight was oversold, they had me wait around until the plane was ready to take off. A couple minutes after they shut the door of the boarding bridge, I was called and told to follow one of them. It turns out a couple of people were headed to the right city in the wrong country."
