Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing, caring and helpful."
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: "Boarding procedure was the most efficient I have ever seen for a 777. Very quick and efficient, back to front. Great food. Very polite and efficient crew. Plenty of leg room in coach. Comfortable seat configuration, with only three seats in center section. JAL is a great airline!"
Pros: "The seats were quite small but other than that it was a nice flight. The crew was very nice."
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "JAL work ethics are what the Japanese excel at, so there's not much to complain about."
Cons: "The same as most other airlines, the seat width and pitch has been getting smaller. Even with seat by the aisle, my elbow sometimes bumped inadvertently a wayward flight attendant."
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."

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."

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!

Cons: "The in seat entertainment was a bit clunky"
Pros: "comfortable seats Leg room Amazing crew Good food Free movies I enjoyed all 9 hours!"

But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"
Pros: "The boarding process, on-time departure and in-flight service were all great and it has the on time arrival."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and leg room, especially for Economy. Staff was very helping and friendly. Entertainment selection provided enough options to find something of interest. Flight crew was outstanding keeping the flight punctual."

Cons: "Could not fall asleep as the chair would not recline enough"
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly staff, smooth check-in and boarding. I love the simplified, smaller Boarding Pass that can actually fit into your passport and doesn't stick out as a sore thumb."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardess"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "I could upgrade my seat from a regular economy seat to a premium economy seat about 24 hours in advance. The flight attendants were generally attentive and thanks to the kindness of my ajacent passenger to my left, I could sometimes go to restrooms."
Cons: "I usually take an aisle seat, but it was not available this time. Furthermore, my ajacent passenger to my right hand side had cold and often coughed and I myseld caught cold from him during this flight...."
Pros: "I've flown to Asia many, many times and NH is the best of all the carriers I've used."
Pros: "Good air crew. Good manners and attention to detail. Excellent members at check-in."
Pros: "Rather new plane; tight, hard, uncomfortable seat architecture. I'm 6 feet tall and 160 pounds -- probably about the 'ideal size' for design. Least comfortable long flight I've had in a very long time."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."
Pros: "Excellent service and flight experience!! Thank you."
Pros: "Need to step it up with the food, don't have time for shitty service this day and age"
Cons: "Getting overcharged on surfboards, shitty food, should have free wifi give me a break"
Cons: "Japanese food served on plane that I found main. course - the cubic shaped meat is too dry and hard to finish.- Mrs. Sun-Hua W. Hsieh"
Pros: "Boarding was the fastest I've ever seen on an international trip. Thank you!! And the flight arrived earlier than anticipated. So travel was great."
Cons: "Tight quarters in the economy class were much less comfortable than the ANA flight to Narita. And why isn't there at least a curtain in front of the restrooms - there's way too little privacy in that regard. One should not be able to see the toilet from 10 rows back whenever the door is opened!"
Pros: "They found us seats next to each other even though it said only middle seats were available"
Cons: "Entertainment options are terrible. Food is terrible. Leg room terrible. Glad it arrived 30 minutes early"
Pros: "Boarding process and take off was the most efficient - truly impressive! I don’t think this had anything to do with the airline, but every flight with them was so quiet (no crying babies/children, loud adult conversations), I thought I could hear the pin drop! Their safety demonstration was uniquely done by dancer, which made it interesting to watch every time! I left my jacket on one of my flights, but they returned it to me when I boarded the next flight - I was gratefully surprised! They had complementary tooth brush/toothpaste, ear plugs and eye masks in the restrooms. I thought this was a good way to reduce passing out items not all passengers wanted. I wish all airlines could copy these amazing features from them."
Cons: "Their meals were underwhelming- in four flights on my trip, they were basically the same main course. The rolls with margarine, same fruit and strongly cultural seasoned vegetables that were served every time, all of which I could not eat. I have liked every airline meals and hospital food, but their food was below institutional food quality. For an Asian airline, the flight attendants were rather crude in their speech and mannerisms. I could barely hear and understand the announcements in spite the fact that passengers were extremely quiet. Their choices of movies were very poor; it seemed that 3 out of 4 flights had similar options."
Pros: "Crew and attendants did very well"
Cons: "Gate change communication"
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "Amazing crew and food; clean lavatories throughout the flight"
Cons: "Need more elbow space; 10 seats across in the economy section really soured the experience"

Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Seat from taipei to jakarta is roomy & comfortable"
Cons: "The seat from taipei to seattle should be roomier as it relates to longer flight time duration"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew were nice & the flight was on time."
Cons: "Food was ok but I was in the Economy class. I do agree with a review that no water was served during a long flight. Drinks were served only after a meal."
Cons: "I don’t understand why flights don’t board from the back to the front. People at the back have to get past the ones in front still in the aisles to get to their seats."
Cons: "Great flight, and food was pretty good as well."
Pros: "Crew friendliness, comfortable seat"
Cons: "the temperature on the plane fluctuates a lot. Sometimes very cold and sometimes too warm."
Pros: "Liked the food and overall atmosphere. Stewardesses were great."
Cons: "Didn't like the 9 hr & 40 min layover in Taipei."
Cons: "Food was not really appetizing."
Pros: "The service was very good, the food was better than at most airlines. There even seemed to be a little bit more legroom. The bathrooms were kept clean."
Pros: "Fast and friendly service of the flight crew, The captain keeping us informated of turbulents and flight arrival time."
Cons: "Hard to sleep on international flights , especially when they last more then 8 hrs. I like that they are early morning flights . Not sure how to battle jet lag after a long flight. If Eva air could make a video / on board flight video on how to battle jet lag ."
Cons: "It was a long 9.5 hrs flight! Economy class is okay! Nothing wrong w the airline, its just not comfortable to sit for almost 10 hrs long!"
Pros: "Service and landing were great."
Cons: "Too cramped and people who coughed the whole flight which isn’t airline’s fault. Wine wasn’t good at all."
Pros: "All the staff were courteous and polite. Bathroom is clean and landing was perfect: it was so quite , I didn’t even know we touch downed."
Cons: "Didn’t like PA system: poor quality and pronunciation of English."

Cons: "had to inquire about cocktail service"
Pros: "Very good service."
Pros: "Good food. Lots of movie selections. I like the amenities in the bathroom."
Cons: "Less space. No socket to charge phone."
Pros: "Eva Air had attendants on the ground pointing us all in the right direction to catch our flights with the minimum delay! Such a Quick turn around I was expecting my luggage wouldn't even make the flight!! But it did!! Also liked their mood lighting to replicate the time of day, since they asked us to keep our shades pulled all the time. Nice restrooms and I appreciated the toothbrush, earplugs and eyeshades they stocked in the restrooms!"
Cons: "Seats were tight. I usually have food served that will acclimate you to your destination city time zone. Not so with Eva Air. Two dinners instead of a Breakfast."
Pros: "Quick boarding, felt like more leg room than usual, polite courteous staff, good movie selection."
Cons: "Food was good, but I've had better with other Asian airlines. They served me croissant with breakfast that was so dry, it crumbled all over my lap."
Pros: "Attentive crew, clean washrooms, decent chairs, great food, enough entertainment. It was easy to transfer trains in an airport we have never been to."
Pros: "Having an aisle seat on a packed glf"
Cons: "The attitude of some of the flight attendants. You ask got ice with your beverage and it's like I am asking for the world. And, then you get a couple pieces of ice if you're lucky but only have s glass of beverage. Is that ridiculous or what... both leaving the States and upon returning was the same situation...it's only ice..."
Pros: "Wonderful service, comfortable seating (compared to American airline seats) and attentive and polite crew!"
Pros: "Great vegetarian options that can be selected in advance. Very kind and courteous staff! Flew Eva to and from Asia and staff consistently exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Husband and I got separated for long leg from Taipei to Seattle. Got stuck in between to very large men...impossible to really sleep. The middle seats should cost less."
Pros: "Beautiful stewardesses on EVA, big aircraft."
Cons: "TVs are outdated and small. Not as roomy as the 777."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above, but there were not a lot of open seats, so we were moved to the bulkhead."
Pros: "economy plus was well worth the extra money"
Pros: "Nothing. I find it ridiculous because I find a good deal on a flight I don't get credit for any of the miles!! I fly to Thailand 3-4 times a year and all I want is to get good service and when I have a three hour layover in Taipei to b able to go to the gold card lounge and relax!!"
Pros: "extra room in the extended economy class. i was upgraded to there because of my gold star alliance"
Cons: "nothing to note"
Cons: "The seats are too small. There is not enough leg room. Very uncomfortable !!"
Pros: "i liked the emergency seat because I had more room"
Cons: "The flight from Seattle to Taiwan was one of the worst flights I ever had. Not only was there no outlet for me to do work, but the 2nd level of the plane was unusually warm and stuff. However flying back from Taiwan to Seattle was not as uncomfortable, it was still annoying to not have an outlet. Also the entertainment screen on those flights were really small. Lastly, the food overall was mediocre, but that was not as big of a deal to me."
Pros: "I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly."
Cons: "As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time."
Pros: "same as previous flight"
Cons: "same as previous flight"
Pros: "I became very light-headed during flight and received excellent and compassionate care. Wonderful crew."
Cons: "The food is fine but not great"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Eva. Overall a positive experience. Crew and staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "I was a little frustrated when standing in line to check in in Taipei. Only one active agent, a very long line and about six Eva employees chatting in the administrative area."
Pros: "There was a lot to keep you busy."
Cons: "The food was dry."
Pros: "No issues with boarding Departed and landed on time Nice blankets"
Cons: "Food was not good TV/movie options seemed limited Hot tea was very bitter"
Pros: "The stewardesses were outstanding and really seemed to care how we were treated. Fantastic"

Pros: "Could charge my phone!"
Cons: "Not a fan of crowded economy class flights"
Pros: "Free entertainment and food!"
Cons: "More space"
Pros: "The entire trip was amazing"
Pros: "Entire experience was perfect"
Pros: "First class was especially luxurious. And the Mai Tais were the best of the whole vacation."
Pros: "The crew and service were excellent."
Cons: "There needs to be WiFi entertainment options when you bring your own device. Also, there were very few options for food choices for people with allergy concerns."
Pros: "Crew great, on time , good flight."
Cons: "the headphone jack worked on outbound flight but not on the return flight, different sized hole."
Pros: "Served a meal and lots of drink services which was great! Really friendly attendants."
Cons: "Didn't like that you have to buy the movies on the plane."
Pros: "The complimentary sandwich and chips were appreciated."
Cons: "To get earphones, blankets, play video games and view movies all required purchase."
Pros: "I had leg room on this flight - amazing. Maybe I just got lucky!"
Cons: "I can't understand why airlines don't board the back of the plane first after first class, babes and disabled of course. Too much time wasted standing in the aisles waiting for folk up front to stow in the overheads."
Cons: "One and a half hours late departure missed last of the nite airporter connection. Had to rent car."
Pros: "Meal included on the flight was good."
Cons: "We were not assigned seats when we purchased our tickets. We called to try to get seat assignments and they told us to talk to a gate agent. When we went to the airport to checkin, there were NO gate agents at checkin. You had to check in on a computer and then drop our bag at the agriculture screening point. We went to guest services and they told us to go to the gate. We went to the gate and it was closed with no one there. We asked information and they sent us to guest services. Guest services then got snippy with us and told us to wait at the gate. So, we didn't even know if we would be able to sit together or if we'd be stuck with middle seats on the 5 hour flight until an hour before the flight left. Ultimately, our seats were fine, but the fact that no one could or would help us and the help that was there was completely useless and kind of nasty, convinced us to NEVER FLY HAWAIIAN AIRLINES AGAIN. Oh, and on the plane, they have an inflight entertainment screen on each seat, however, you have to pay for EVERY movie on it. This was not the case on Alaska Airlines, where entertainment was free."
Cons: "Hawaiian needs more free entertainment options. Perhaps one free video on the flight with additional options for purchase. And only one meal option for everyone does not seem to be realistic, especially these days when everyone has some foods they stay away from. A this-or-that option would have been great. Overall, great experience but everything is a little outdated on flights (no wifi)."
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Pros: "Service was friendly and caring. Really appreciated the warmth."
Cons: "Audio interruptions to offer credit cards felt tacky. I understand the opportunity, but it's kind of a turn-off to be strapped into my seat and forced to listen to a canned commercial. Maybe announcing a free cocktail to all cardholders to get the buzz going, then pass out flyers to anyone who is interested after that"
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is always on time and alway have extra seats."
Cons: "Sometimes and connection flight to Maui when going to Honolulu and takes an extra 2 hours of wait time."
Cons: "That we can't keep the blankies."
Pros: "I appreciated the staff assistance, even though I didn't appreciate the airline's protocol. I purchased seats next to each other, when I checked in 22.5 hours before the flight we (2) were split up. The airline told us our option was to purchase upgrades to sit next to each other. I waited patiently for 3 hours before the flight and spoke with a few gate attendants. They were accommodating and put us together, even though they moved us to the rear-most section of the plane and into the center section. Great free music stations."
Cons: "Having a meal on the flight is awesome! Not offering a vegetarian option (and cooking the meat in with the starch) meant that my fiance had nothing to eat but cookies and crackers. Also, overhead bin area was limited, mostly due to passengers bringing larger and larger 'carry-ons' (which are not actually carry-on sized). Hawaiian needs to be more strict about their carry-on sizes for rolling bags. They should fit wheels-in, not wheels to the side. Finally, media is available for free, but only for advertisement and promotion, entertainment media is only available for purchase."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay for movies after I paid $80 for extra Comfort seat"
Pros: "Free meal and beveraged"
Cons: "Paying for tv"
Pros: "When we checked in it would have been helpful to have a crew member tell my husband and I that we were not sitting together so we could have tried to address. We didn't notice until we were boarding. The service cart was busy more than our flight to HI."
Pros: "Great service with a smile. Brandon was very courteous and patient with everyone. Professional at all times but very hospital like family."
Cons: "So hot....no ac!!!"
Pros: "The atmosphere in the flight was cam and mellow. I love the haeaiin music playing."

Cons: "We were very disappointed that there wasn't a complimentary in-flight movie during our 6-hour flight."
Pros: "Use Cash to transfer my baggage, not just my card,please."
Cons: "Bad meals"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Boarding was good. They supplied a meal and it was a very smooth uneventful flight."
Cons: "Cabin was cold but if you wanted a blanket you had to buy one. Seat in front of us was broke and delayed the flight while they tried to fix it (they did not)."
Pros: "Delayed flight. Pilots were great about giving information to passengers. Attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "We have never had a long flight without any movie choices or other entertainment for the entire trip. It is not ok to have such a void in offerings for passengers for such a long flight. We will never fly Hawaii again because of this. Seems like this airline has gotten carried away with cost cutting. Sorry to say, I will be sharing this disappointment with friends. We have never flown with this carrier before, but we expected better."
Pros: "The crew was great in helping us try to make our connecting flight after we realized we might miss it. They helped us tag our gate-checked stroller (which we had to ditch) and let us off the plane first. And the pilot notified the ground crew at our connecting flight too. Thank you, we made the flight!"
Cons: "The 1 hr delay in OGG caused us to nearly miss our connecting flight in SEA."
Cons: "The Honolulu airport is difficult to navigate, very confusing, and crowded (not your fault, I know, but airlines should demand more from the airport administration). The entertainment options under "complimentary" all required a payment, even the ones I watched for free on the first leg of the flight from Tokyo."
Pros: "Nice to have a meal. The mai tai was great! Charging for movies is not appreciated though."
Pros: "We made it."
Cons: "Some crew members were quite rude and not accommodating. Simple requests for water were not met or were met with serious attitude. No food alternatives, which does not work for me as I have a particular allergy. There was no entertainment or wine available (I booked an international flight -- which in my experience always includes these things including special meals. We were treated as if we were flying domestically, which was not what we paid for). I won't be booking Hawaiian Airlines again."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I was not able to select my seat despite paying a hefty sum (well over double the cost of normal). As I went to check in, I still was not able to select a seat. As I refreshed my mobile check-in, I finally was assigned a seat just prior to boarding. As I stood in-line to board, I noticed that my seat changed, which also meant a different boarding zone. I left the line to wait for the next queue to board. As I stood in line again to board, I was called to the podium by an agent. They informed me that my seat changed. At this point, I was one of the last to board. My final seat on the plane ended being in a seat that did not recline (which is terrible for a 5.5 hour flight), next to a woman that spilled over into my seat. And in front of a very tall gentleman with his feet staying next to me most of the ride. At the price I paid and the changes they were making, I would have preferred an upgrade. The cost for my ticket was well over what i would have been charged for first class on any other day."
Pros: "Very comfortable, good entertainment choices, thank you for providing a meal."
Cons: "the zone system was very inefficient. It would also help if the attendants used the PA and didn't just scream into the crowd."
Pros: "Same as Syndey to Honolulu."
Cons: "Same as Sydney to Honolulu"
Pros: "free wine with dinner. and bathrooms were close to my seat. and the free meal with your flight was nice"
Cons: "had to stop the plane and turn around because of 2 passengers. and you have to pay for movies. and old movies to boot. that was lame."
Pros: "I liked the plane had 2-4-2 seating, a USB plugin, and the fact that the first flight was right on schedule."
Cons: "Leg room was average at best. I'm 5'9" and my knees barely cleared the seat in front of me. Food was crappy. Disappointed to find that there were NO movies or TV for free. $8 per movie for 6 hour fight? Every other airline I've traveled offers some sort of free movies or TV for that length of flight."
Pros: "The staff were very confrontational and rude. I never write reviews but this as a very bad way to end an amazing vacation. Basically it felt like they said screw you get off our island. I've never had a bad airport experience until this one."
Cons: "The staff working customer service, baggage check, security."
Cons: "I think you could provide 1free movie on the flight since it is a fairly long flight. That plus your meal you would be the only way to fly."
Pros: "Cabin crew were very good and efficient."
Cons: "Late departure (over an hour). Seat lumpy and tray tables loose and rickety. Monitor wasn't very good at all."
Pros: "Meals are complementary (they pride themselves on being the only US airline that still serves complementary meals) and they had some complementary wine. Staff are friendly and my flights arrived either on time or early."
Cons: "The meals, though free, were pretty mediocre, but then again I guess all airplane food is. The complementary wine was also pretty bad. My sister is lactose intolerant, and they didn't have a dairy-free option for her. They sold snacks, blankets, and headphones but no longer take cash for them. Also I thought blankets used to be free? If you wanted to watch a movie or TV, you had to pay something like $8."
Pros: "Everything went fairly smoothly from boarding, in-flight and landing. Food was good and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Not sure if this is in your control but there was a breakdown somewhere with the luggage conveyor and it took so long to receive our baggage; especially for those of us who had arrived at the airport early for departure and checked in early, our baggage was the last to be unloaded and got stuck until the conveyor was fixed."
Pros: "Definitely appreciated the hot meal and comp wine! Was not expecting that. Thanks much."
Cons: "Overall my experience was a positive one, however I feel the need to express my dissatisfaction with the luggage process. It was the first time (though admittedly I don't travel oftenI I was told I had to print my own tags, using the kiosk. The person receiving the luggage was not very helpful when I explained I wasn't familiar with the kiosk. Though I was the only one in the luggage line at the time He made no attempt to give me instructions. Sent me to a "special services" line which, if I had stayed in it, I may have missed my flight. Fortunately, another airline rep came to my rescue at the kiosk and patiently and courteously completed the procedure for me. Would have liked to have some "free" movies offered as on other airlines I have taken. Fortunately I had a friendly seatmate who invited me to enjoy a movie she purchased, using one of her earphones."
Pros: "Free meal and wine with it was nice."
Cons: "The seat reclining mechanism was completely missing, just a hole where it should have been."
Pros: "Free meals, easy boarding, pleasant crew and comfortable chair!"
Cons: "Flight attendants hurried by without explaining what they were offering or selling. The media tablet was not working well on both flights."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines understands perfectly how to ensure flying is a comfortable, pleasant and consistently experience filled Aloha...from the welcoming, ptofessionsl staff, complimentary glass of wine and delicious meal, tasty snack, exacting flight sceduled and overall passenger comfort. Truly the best airline to fly every time!"
Cons: "Would appreciate a comimentary international news program in flight."
Pros: "Food was served! It's been a long time since I was served a complimentary meal on a flight."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible. Expensive for mediocre entertainment and the complimentary entertainment was terrible."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Fast and easy to board nice crew worked fast and smooth large proposal for entertainment"
Cons: "more diversity of beverage offered Also please propose coffee or tea before/after dinner and breakfast, nobody proposed me and I thought it would come later but nothing came. I should have asked before the end of the service but I was surprised it wasn't coming automatically."
Pros: "Crew was friendly , Seats were fine ."
Cons: "They only had one choice of pork roll , Which was not. Good , As I m a Muslim , I couldn't eat on the flight . More food. Options"
Cons: "Catering and professionalism of the crew could have been better."
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "Crew are very kind and seat are fabulous as i was able to sleep since i dont have a seat meate :-)"
Cons: "It was my first time frying with Cathay Pacific the flight was okay, food wasn't that good. I don't want to compare with the other, my opinion should have more variety or snack between meals since 15 hours flight. Thank you for listening!"
Pros: "LOVED the cup of Ramen anytime snack and curved utensils for eating on a moving plane, genius! Service and quality of product is great. If possible, I will always Choose Cathay Pacific airlines over any US Legacy Airlines to Asia any day!"
Cons: "Stop shrinking the check-in luggage size and allowable weight every few years. It's a nuisance to have to buy new luggage every few years when perfectly working luggage has to be thrown away because of size requirement shrinkage."
Cons: "This airline will cancel your flight and blame it on customs in the US - the truth is the flight was undersold and they did not want to travel with so few passengers."
Pros: "Could not take flight and could not get refunded"
Cons: "Refund money"
Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance..very dignified"
Cons: "There was a mixup for special meal that i ordered...wrong marking of seat number,even after having a prepaid confimed seat"
Cons: "Delay without infromation"
Cons: "The television got black out 6 hours before landing..dont have a choice but yo sleep."
Cons: "The staff very accomadating and helpful"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "Seats are not exactly comfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "The staff at Cathay Pacific were awesome."
Pros: "seats that i selected was change when we enter the boarding gate without informing us"
Cons: "The company cancelled my flight and threatened to recharge for the seats. Had to plead to keep the flight I PAID for. Unbelievable and I will not be booking again with either company or agency in the future."
Pros: "Seats were spacious enough"
Cons: "Departed about 40 minutes late without an explanation, then had to take a circuitous route around local thunderstorms which added another 30 minutes, so that we arrived over an hour late. Deplaning was also very slow, such that we cleared the airport at 1:45 AM, rather than 11:35PM as scheduled."
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "It was a journey with comfort and care.Crew was at its toes with hospitality skills.Food and snacks were appropriate.overall it was an amazing experience."
Cons: "All was gud . Can add little bit for vegetarians food choices."
Pros: "their korean movies"
Cons: "they have worst coordination between airline crew and airport personnel who is in charge with services taking care for the handicap they forgot to board my aunt so i had to help my aunt board then the crew informed me i am not allowed to bring her in the plane and leave the wheelchair in the tube i had to bring her in the plane since my aunt was anxious other people in wheelchair was already brought in and she was left behind"
Pros: "The new plane"
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Cons: "couldnt find anything to complain about"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific was amazing. Great service and great food."
Cons: "There was a long delay when boarding the connecting flight to SGN and there weren't any clear updates on the flight status. I didn't mind the wait so much but I wish they had announced the current status more clearly."
Cons: "The rush at lay over to get to the next plane. No time even for just a cigarette, before the long flight to NYC."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for one hour."
Pros: "The crew were very polite, efficient and attentive."
Cons: "On the first leg of our journey the seats were very difficult to adjust. We required the help of the attendants."
Pros: "Friendly crew and pilot. Smooth take off and landing."
Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."
Pros: "Superb crew and excellent service."
Pros: "Efficiency of Operations, efficiency of service and attitude to pleasing customers, great choice of movies, excellent aircraft"
Cons: "For two hours flight food was adequate"
Pros: "The crew is nice. You can order snacks in between meals."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were automatically placed on another EARLIER flight and we weren't notified. I found out the morning of our original flight, as our new flight was about to board. I still haven't figured out who was responsible for this snafu - the airline or Webjet.com. Webjet customer service was horrible and offensive when I tried to explain to them what happened; they said it was my responsibility to check the time. I would disagree - the customer is ultimately supposed to get an email notifying them of the flight change, giving them options. Based on that phone call with Webjet, I will NEVER do business with them again. As for the flight cancellation issue - if Kayak could help me get to the bottom of this, that would be appreciated."
Pros: "Smooth flight on Cathay Pacific, as usual. Great service from the crew, even in economy class. Best airline across the Pacific."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "They are very Harsh, There was no service at all."
Cons: "Airhostess response is very poor."
Pros: "Flight was delayed Made connection just in time"
Pros: "Good flight. Crew busy but pleasant."
Cons: "Difficulty hearing announcements - I have a hearing deficit - so it was hard to know what was going on. Wish there was a coffee/tea service before landing after 15-hour flight to Chicago. Crew kept windows dark until 1/2 hour before landing."
Pros: "The crew was very receptive even calling me by name also very attentive to my questions about the food and entertainment"
Cons: "The movie selection on the longest leg of my journey wasn’t very entertaining."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"
Pros: "Blankets and good movies and very kind"
Cons: "Sometimes too cold"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Waiting time , as the flight was not scheduled on time. Also there was no vegeterian food from Honk Kong to SFO."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and the entertainment was great"
Cons: "The other guests were loud and rude on the flight and none of the staff seemed to care."
Pros: "The A350 aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was not long enough...."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Hong Kong to JFK. I was given another flight but had to wait seven hours. Meal vouchers did not cover enough for how long I waited. New flight was not direct like the original one so there was a layover in Vancouver. I was supposed to get back to New York on February 2nd at night, but arrived around 6:00am on the 3rd. This was a major inconvenience since I had school 3 hours after I arrived and then work. I would suggest to not have arriving flights and connecting departing flights less than hour and thirty minutes to two hours apart. Only for delay issues."
Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."
Pros: "Plane was newer & clean. Cabin crew was helpful & nice with my dad transferring from wheel chair to the plane"
Cons: "My family traveled with my 80 year old dad but Hong Kong ground crew would not allow us to board together. My wife & I had to carry all our carry on baggage since my mom was the only one allowed to board with him. All three previous flights the ground crew allowed all of us to stay as a family."
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
