Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than those on domestic flights. The window glass was dimmable for ideal lighting."
Cons: "The arm rests did not go up all the way. This made it difficult to maximize comfort with my wife."
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: "Good service"
Pros: "Seating and service"
Cons: "Flight to Haneda airport not Narita"
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: "even though middle seat, there was enough leg room to rest comfortably."
Pros: "Food was acceptable. Stewardess very helpful"
Cons: "On a long flight it is good to have a good movie. Selection very bad. Seats r not comfortable seat turns into bed but lower part is too low. Poor design. Food not very good"
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."
Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Pros: "Flight was half full so was able to take aisle seat."
Cons: "Fight attendant service was poor. Even getting water for meal, the attendant 'forgets' to bring it."
Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great service and terrific vegan meals served. Facilities were clean and personnel were very helpful and provided terrific service to the passengers."
Pros: "the staff"
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Too small, too hot. Not enough air conditioning. China air was better. Only one meal choice. No choice for vegetarians or allergies. Didn't warn about the rain, stairs were slippery"
Pros: "The food was good. Seats were as comfortable as any flight is."
Cons: "There were no diet soft drinks available on the flight."
Pros: "As usual A1 service all the way!"
Cons: "Seat was too hard"
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"
Cons: "The father next to me that spilled two drinks on me. I didn't even get an apology. Beyond sold out plane too..."
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: "Everything was perfect! Thank you for a great experience!"
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Pros: "I am all right for travelling by Japan airlines this trips to Taipei. My hometown."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"
Pros: "Everything! JAL employees go above and beyond to deliver perfect customer service with a genuine smile."
Cons: "Nothing! No complaints here"
Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of leg room. Food is much better than US airlines and so as the service! Will fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"
Pros: "Last minute accommodation for Muslim meal was awesome!"

Pros: "JAL ' service is nice."
Cons: "I didn't like MSG in food."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the food was awesome as always!"
Cons: "The main entree was not very good."
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: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."
Pros: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."
Pros: "SERVICE was amazing and everything was very smooth"
Pros: "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."
Cons: "JAL entertainment system had comparably fewer movie choices vs. many other airlines including American, United, and Delta. Surprising that Studio Cathay actually featured more Japanese films than the JAL Magic V system."
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."
Pros: "Customer service is great."
Pros: "on time"
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: "Awesome crew"
Cons: "Old seating"
Cons: "Mid night snack can be improved, it’s too small a portion."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so warm and friendly, always ready with a smile and eager to help."
Cons: "Simply an older aircraft and the entertainment options were lacking compared to other carriers. The news video NHK would not fast forward or rewind but would always start over. Otherwise it was a good flight thanks"
Pros: "Very caring, and pay full attention to passengers."
Cons: "Better food quality, more movies please."
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: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "Crew were super attentive. Friendly and helpful. Food was decent. Nice change from standard fare."
Cons: "This seemed an older plane so the size of the economy class seating harkened back to the days when your legs were numb halfway through the flight."
Pros: "The crew are great!"
Cons: "Not enough wheel chair at LAX! Waiting for wheel chair too long! Finally, need to walk by myself at LAX. Very bad service for wheel chair at LAX! Need to improve this service for elderly."
Pros: "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
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: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
Pros: "Staff is awesome"

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: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."
Pros: "Friendly staff and great food. Cabin was spacious even for Economy."
Pros: "Crews' performance was good."
Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."
Cons: "The VOML food"
Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, food was good, decent movies overall."
Cons: "Cramped for average size American man. 5'10", can't imagine being 6' 2" or taller flying coach."

Cons: "I like the whole experience overall"
Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."

Pros: "Yes crew and plane were ok."
Pros: "Clean toilets."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun. This flight was terrible for my 3 children and I."
Pros: "Smooth fly. Sleep a little bit better not to shaky.some friendly passengers."

Pros: "good crew and entertainment"
Cons: "stinky food, fat girl beside me taking up all the room"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "You had to download an app to watch the movies. With 4 hours left of my flight, I saw that some people had PAL issued iPads. This would have been helpful to know at the beginning of my flight."
Pros: "The staff was friendly."
Cons: "The airplane was over booked, there was not enough food for everyone, the food was stale and expired, the bathrooms exuded a stench to which you had to endure throughout the entore flight, there was not enough crew so requesting things took very long and we had turbulence for 90% of the flight, on a flight that was 11 hours long."

Cons: "There was free WiFi for 30 minutes but weak. The one that works bette, you have to pay."
Pros: "Friendly and very attentive flight crew."
Pros: "the crew very accomodating.helpful,"
Cons: "The menu mainly. I have to understand that passengers are Filipino. Everything is so with sugar! It is not a complain. just I will have to get organized next time to buy some fruit or something more in accordance with diabetes and high blood pressure. overall great trip!"
Pros: "PAL express from LAX to Manila had accommodation for their passangers"
Cons: "I could not connect to WiFi even though it was free."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with PAL. I had read the reviews mostly good, some not so good but I decided to do it because I was going to meet my fiancee. Flew from LA to Manila and back. The flights took off late (which I later found out is called Filipino time LOL). The crew was AWESOME, the only problem was on the return flight I had some trouble getting a stewardess but to be fair EVERYBODY was hitting the bells to get service. The food was good and I liked the choices. I would DEFINITELY fly PAL again!!!!!"
Pros: "I liked the service , the friendliest crew, quick ease for boarding"
Cons: "Food was not that good. They could have done better in that department. I've had better airline food. Needs work there."
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Narrow seat and no leg room"
Pros: "I like that the plane was not very full and I had no seatmate beside me. The staff were attentive to the needs of the passengers."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses, transferring."
Pros: "Everything no complaints."
Cons: "the airport in Manila is terrible. Elevator broken so had to carry my carryon up 6 or 7 flights of stairs. Not enough seats for the voucher breakfast and the breakfast was mainly tiny and full of carbohydrates."
Pros: "Seat is good and nes"
Cons: "For the ticket price- I think that it would be nice to have more comfortable seats as the flight is a long one and it would also be nice if the crew make their rounds to check on the passengers and ask if they are comfortable"
Pros: "Everything else was fine other than the comments as described below."
Cons: "Saw a specific female crew member ignore a passenger raising his hand and repeatedly saying excuse me to ask for a blanket, and she straight turned around to walk the other way. It's not difficult to get blankets from the overhead bin and with the possibility of other passengers asking, it's part of your job. A male crew member was attentive to the passenger after he immediately recognized the passenger's request walking through the aisle. This was from MNL to NRT. Also on one of the connecting flights (could have been same as above), the flight departed late because they allowed another passenger through that wasn't suppose to be on that flight on to the plane. They need to have better boarding pass scanners and /or the employees should pay better attention to that main detail. Air was really dry in the cabin, suggestion is to add some kind of humidifier in the plane to decrease dryness to the nose."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, attentive, and friendly Inflight entertainment was up to date with recent movies, tv shows, Food could be better"
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: "Philippine Airlines airport was convoluted, no signage, no screens, horrible. Checked-in online to speed things up, but the ladies at the "Online check-in counter" was not there, and when they turned up, there were in training. Then the boarding gates/lounge. None of the restaurants accepted credit or debit cards (?). It's an international airport!?! Unbelievable. Once boarded, realised none of the seats had screens or any onboard entertainment unless you had downloaded the myPal app. It would have been handy if the check-in staff informed us of this. Then there were flight delays, with no explanation. No screens with any live updates. Nothing. Worst terminal on planet earth! Now the plane. It must be a plane bought from another airline who completed their 30 year lease of the aircraft, because it looked like from the 1980's or older. Falling apart, uncomfortable, toilets not working, dirty, run down. The air-crew were lazy and rude and were inconsistent. One would say they ran out of something, then the person next to me would ask another crew, and received what they requested (food, assistance, pens, etc). Horrible. The pilots rarely informed us of the flight updates. Just utterly horrible! I cannot believe I have to fly with them on my return leg back home :("
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing made me felt safe to fly."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "No leg space , hard seat, no entertainment tv (only a tv of the 80s every 10 seats showing same movie over and over for 14 hours. Terrible!"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be more interested in chatting w/ each other than serving. I had to go to the service area at least 5x to ask for water. We were in a "holding" area for 3 hrs prior to flight. Was asked to vacate another area in the terminal because we didn't want to b in this cramped holding area."
