Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Needs more variety of movies"
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."
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."
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"
Pros: "Good service"
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: "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"

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: "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: "Crew very helpful and courteous"
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: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"
Pros: "The cabin crew was professional, friendly and courteous. It's always refreshing to fly an Asian airline for the impeccable customer service. The 787 left me with minimal jet lag. The odd shaped pillows provided great back support."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but old fashioned. The WiFi was spotty and it would have been nice to have Asian food options."
Pros: "I like everything about my flight"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"
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: "excellent foods and services, spacious seats, crews speak english, flight is landing is smooth"
Cons: "seats need a bit more padding"
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!"
Pros: "Very attentive service, very comfortable seats on economy, good food, excellent attention to detail"
Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"
Cons: "the only thing was this flight was delayed and we missed the flight at LAX, but JAL reserved a hotel room near by for us so that we were able to refresh ourselves and relax till the next flight. thank you JAL!"
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: "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: "The crew's attention to detail, service."
Cons: "Sort of bumpy flight."
Pros: "Customer service is great."
Pros: "The people, let's be honest, the Japanese just have a genuine humble way about them, where they actually derive pleasure from providing quality service. In short, they are better human beings, and having a flight with them taking care of me, is a sort of heaven"
Cons: "Food quality."
Pros: "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."
Cons: "Can't say that I have ANY complaints at all!!"
Pros: "It was perfect!"
Pros: "Service N crew n entertainment."

Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "The airport staff in Istanbul was horrible. Wouldn't help find the gate until the last second. After arriving in JFK. We're stuck on plane on tarmac for 3.5 hours "waiting for a gate" unacceptable."
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Pros: "Everthing was great. I wish US domestic airlines were even half as good"
Cons: "Please change my meal request from diabetic to regular"
Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."
Pros: "Attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The check-in was quite hectic."
Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."
Cons: "my chair was not inclining . After several requests to take a look at it or even move me to another seat, it was never addressed."
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Cons: "Lost my bag. Again no gate number from Instambul to NY."
Pros: "There were a lot of very good experiences with Turkish Air. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and courteous the staff was. Overall, the trip was a pleasure. I would fly with Turkish Air again."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "According to the menu we were supposed to have a choice of chicken or eggplants. When it was my turn - it turned out that there was no chicken left. Fine. Eggplants with some kind of lasagna. This lasagna was just old! Old and dry. And cold. It was definitely not fresh. I asked to warm it up. Got another one. Which was not better actually. That was really annoying. Only after one more complaint I was offered some kosher (and now really good) meal instead."
Cons: "Everything good"
Cons: "Very very cramped"
Cons: "Need more vegetarian options"
Pros: "All amazing"
Cons: "My new iphone was stolen off the plane. I have complained to the turkish airline people. They tell me fill out feed back forms. I did no response yet. I want to be compensated for my stolen phone"
Cons: "Late baggage"
Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."
Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "I like every thing"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"

Pros: "Meals, pillows and blankets, and the pouches with the slippers, toothpaste, etc."
Pros: "Priority lounge access made 12 hour layover less unbearable."
Cons: "Missing tray table. Was allowed to keep my bag for takeoff but not for landing. Defective headphones (three pairs). Long waits for lavatories. Animals in main cabin. No ability to turn off main cabin screen while landing. Neighbor vomited due to roughness of landing. And the 12 hour layover (CDG-IST-JFK) was pretty harsh, though not as bad as 16 in the other direction."
Pros: "The entire experience went perfectly. Everything was prompt, smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Nothing. A prepared traveler, is a good traveler. These are different times. Understand there are limitations for everyone. Focus on the basics. Do your homework. Read the airlines’ travel updates. Bring minimal gear. Be EARLY. And lastly, be grateful for getting a flight at a great price. If the flight went smoothly, don’t complain and moan about the little stuff that has nothing to do with getting from point A to point B. It’s a struggle for all of us. Please understand that."
Cons: "Plane was Not full, enough social distancing."
Cons: "couldnt change it"

Pros: "3 hrs delayed."
Cons: "The business seat was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "To check out baggage it was very long try to make it short"
Cons: "It was all good, the crew were very accomodating and keeping us comfortable during the flight. It became uncofortable midflight because of one passenger, named Rachelle Marie Perez Herrera Lim sitting in 54 B started to complain about one female crew. She was unreasonable, unccoperative."
Cons: "I don’t know why but I felt like they just didn’t care about your needs, I’m diabetic, and I needed to eat something sweet because my sugar levels dropped low, I asked the stewardess for a cookie but she didn’t want to give me one, I had to bagg her for a cookie, Very disappointing."
Pros: "Yes crew and plane were ok."
Cons: "old 777, no storage, not comfortable, entertainment system not working via remote, service so so."
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: "Everything, except I hope there was more legroom and wifi."
Cons: "Cramp space, no wifi"
Cons: "Service, the seats, the vegetarian food is AWFUL, the entertainment is ridiculous and all around just a horrible experience"
Cons: "7:55 pilot says we will take off on time at 8:00. Then sat on plane for hour, finally took off at 9:20."
Pros: "Well I found out they are not accommodating or flexible and denied my request to upgrade to business class at additional charge"
Cons: "Not much to like there"
Pros: "List of movies"
Cons: "The remote control did not work"
Cons: "Poor service, rude flight attendants, didn’t give me seat they told me they were giving me, terrible food, flight attendants run past you instead of taking their time to give people beverages."
Cons: "I was notified once I arrived to the airport that the fight had been cancelled. This created a great inconvenience since I had a work meeting that I had to attend and was not able due to cancellation. I was moved to a separate flight within a different airline, which I appreciate but I still missed my work meeting due to the new schedule."
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: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A Philippine Airlines check-in personnel did not fail to make my family feel extremely disrespected by treating us in such a rude manner at their counter. After verifying our information, she proceeded to tell us we had no reserved seats for our flight. When I told her we had seat numbers (thus reserved seats) when I checked their website the night before, she had the audacity to imply that we were lying about these mediocre seats! After speaking to the supervisor, she then proceeded to tell us that we should be thankful for the seats she was able to give us, WHICH WERE THE EXACT SAME SEATS THAT WERE LISTED ON THEIR WEBSITE THE DAY BEFORE. Philippine Airlines need to better train their check-in personnel proper customer service to prevent passengers from having such unpleasant experiences with their staff. Our check-in process would have gone smoothly had she not replied in such a snarky manner to us and implied that we owe her for the seats we had in the first place."
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: "I could really feel the heart of the Filipino"

Pros: "Seat is good and nes"
Pros: "The staff members were very courteous, and meals were healthy. Nice selection of inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The temperature was very cold. Many people wore jackets and used blankets and we're still cold."
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: "Boarding and staff were fine. Was able to sleep."
Cons: "It was 2 hours late, postponed. Very old airplane. Food terrible."

Cons: "Need more new releases for movie selection."

Cons: "They forgot to board my laggauge"

Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"
Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"
Pros: "Timely upgrade. Great service."
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Cons: "No electrical outlets. No monitors"
Pros: "When the lettuce looks like the salad you forgot to put away last night you know it has been around and about too long! Pity!"
Pros: "I loved my seat,with the leg rest‼️ THANK YOU"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment features. Great movie selection!"

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The snacks are good and the seats are fairly comfortable. The entertainment options were nice too."
Cons: "But paying $8 for 30 mins of Wi-Fi is just outrageous. I did not, and will not ever pay that much for internet service. Additionally, my bag was asked to be checked at the gate. Mind you, my bag was a Airline Compliant design, that fit into the overhead bin sideways on the same sized plane going out to Chicago. If the flight were full, I would understand them being cautious about space, but the plane was barely over half full. It was just an annoying inconvenience."
Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the ground staff made no effort to update its passengers as the mood to grow angry, however instead two of the counter people continued to laugh joke and talk between themselves as everyone grew more and more restless by 6:30pm"
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
