Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"
Pros: "Awefull I did get to use my ticket"
Cons: "Japan could have helped me change my name in my reservation to match my passport"

Pros: "The customer service overall was really good."
Cons: "The food always messes up my stomach, where the whole day after I can’t eat anything"

Cons: "The only thing I didn't like Was leaving the plane."
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "The food was excellent and the stewardesses were extremely attentive and helpful."
Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"
Cons: "I think it would be good to put more food that is geared to a more international palate."
Pros: "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."
Pros: "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."

Cons: "seats need a bit more padding"
Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"
Pros: "JAL is curteous and professional. They had a flight attendant dedicated to helping me and my infant daughter and provided bassinet and assitant with luggage during the flight. Totally different experience from American carriers like United who treat you like cattle. I hope I can fly with JAL again soon. They are incredible. I was super satisfied."
Pros: "One of the most attentive crews I've ever had. Superb service. Angled flat seat was not bad at all."
Cons: "The DC China Embassy web site clearly states that a valid APEC Business Card can be used in lieu of a Chinese visa. In spite of this I was denied boarding by JAL. It turns out the system is not fully in place, and eventually I was issued a 10 year multiple entry visa by way of apology. JAL did not waive cancellation fee, and I suffered considerable economic damages."
Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."
Cons: "I wish they had a larger movie selection, but they had most "New Releases"."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient. Cabin and lavatories were clean."
Cons: "The interior seems dated, with old-school channel based entertainment system, unlike the ondemand IFE most Asian airlines are equipped with. Meal service was also very slow - took over 50 minutes to serve the economy cabin. There was no choice of main available.. Main was an array of fish cakes type street snacks. It was edible but not impressive."
Pros: "This is the best airline I have ever taken. Staff were attentive, boarding was quick and efficient and there were lots of meals, snacks and drinks. In-flight entertainment selection was also great."
Cons: "Very slow boarding process in Itami"
OTHER AIRLINES WOULD CHANGE YOUR FLIGHT FOR A FEE BUT ANA DID NOT!!!!!!!!!
They wouldn’t let me board because Japan changed their entry policies and I did not get notified. Had to wait another day, pay rebooking fees and miss my family that I haven’t seen in 4 months. TERRIBLE!!
It's ok flying ANA. I'm going to fly again with this airlines and endorsed them to my friends
Cons: "The planes are pretty outdated especially the connecting flights from Narita to HKG"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were not really confortable and the TV menu did not have enough English shows or new movies, even old ones within the menu would've been great. Also - this probably has nothing to do with the company but- there were passengers who took their shoes, even their socks out! It was disgusting"
Pros: "ANA is nothing but amazing. Great customer service and pleasant ambiance."
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
Pros: "Very friendly and caring"
Cons: "i can not think of anything. Great crew Great experience"
Pros: "Entertainment offerings were good."

Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"
Cons: "ANA changed my selected aisle seat to middle one without explanation. It never happens when I fly with United."
Pros: "Overall the service was good."
Cons: "ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."
Cons: "Unfortunately, premium economy is the only way to go, because economy class seats are very cramped and "locked" in the upright position (for a 10+ hour flight), and it's a bit pricey."
Cons: "Couldn’t print or get boarding pass for this connecting flight which was a bit annoying. Other than that, everything was amazing"
Cons: "Great staff and food for a plane."
Pros: "The service...the food...the entertainmrnt....tq tq tq"
Pros: "Service and the fact that flight was not full provided for a better experience. Staff was super friendly and attentive. The films were new and tv was big! Food was ok."
Pros: "Staff and crew and food!"
Cons: "We could not check in online. This was frustrating and we do not know why?"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"
Pros: "Good food, seats were comfy enough for a 4.5-hr flight."

Pros: "Good good, good service, and good equipment."
Pros: "stewards very polite"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "My 96-yr-old father was given an airport wheelchair after we checked his own transport chair. He was wheeled through security and to the departure gate. We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."
Cons: "Very hard landing."
Pros: "Service was amazing."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Pros: "The service is first rate even in economy seating. Attentive flight crew. Excellent airline."
Pros: "Crew services"
Cons: "Seat space, window side, especially foot area no space for my bag and legs"
Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."
Pros: "As always, the Japanese customer service is wonderful - I have no complaints in that department!"
Cons: "The boarding process is pretty annoying....they do not board until minutes before the flight time and we still had to take a bus to the actual plane. We took off late (which, personally, at this point, I had just been on a 14 hour flight plus the 2 hours layover) - a delay just added to the exhaustion. Also, the plane was very old and very hot...even though it was only a one hour flight, it was very uncomfortable and outdated."
Cons: "Tokyo to delhi flight seat does not recline all way as compare with Tokyo to San Jose flight."
Pros: "Onbaord Crew hospitality"
Cons: "Poor ground handling by narita staff. By bus from terminal to plane. Mixed with economy pasaangers. Chaos from bus to plane. All passangers exposed to freezing cold weather at narita aiport outdoor."
Pros: "Compared to different american airlines, this flight was great. Decent meals, decent movies, all around good."
Cons: "The lack of legroom in economy class is a serious problem on long flights. I am only 6' tall/145 pounds, Window and middle seats are are not an option for me. This fact Is a strong disincentive to travel (no, I am not willing to pay the upcharge for the minimal legroom increase, i.e. to make that charge worth paying considerably more room would have to be provided."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "All old movies in English"
Pros: "Very efficient, very fast boarding. Crew was polite."
Pros: "crews have good attitude"
Cons: "flight from kuala lumpur to narita is not for mobility impaired person, one has to take a flight of stair down to tarmac then board a bus, then on to the airport itself."

Pros: "Prompt boarding, friendly service, decent food, plentiful entertainment. Singapore Airlines was a great choice for my flight from Texas to England."
Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was cordial. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"
Cons: "Sitting in a middle seat. Was told at the jetway counter no aisle or window seats were available. I saw no fewer than 5 empty aisle seats in my area."
Pros: "Seats in economy were larger than United. Food was good for airplane food, even found a last minute vegetarian meal not ordered ahead. Appreciated a gratis glass of wine. Found a clean pillow and blanket in every seat upon boarding."
Cons: "My screen had to be reset twice as it froze up. The attendants kept taking my water cups despite them not being empty. Boarding was less than organized, could have been more efficient. We made up time, arriving a few minutes early even after departing late."
Pros: "crew very helpful with seating service on board also good"
Cons: "head phones for entertainment very uncomfortable Food not to my taste"
Pros: "Singapore has always been my preferred airline because they give excellent service, excellent food and the crew are very polite. aircraft new and comfortable, I finally had a flatbed"

Pros: "Everyone was very attentive and nice. The leg room is decent ."
Cons: "Some of the food didn't taste amazing, would've like maybe a different choice other than salmon or curry pork"
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"
Cons: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest but it was adequate considering shirt trip"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"
Pros: "I love traveling on Singapore airlines. They have excellent service and always on time. Their entertainment system is very good. I won't say excellent as I've seem Emirates and they still have along way to go to catch up."
Cons: "They did not give us the landing cards and we had to fill them in at the airport. Many were like us and I am surprised. Also for business class passengers they don't get into a priority lane as you see in Emirates and other airlines. while Singapore airline is very good, they still lack in the details."
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."
Cons: "The food was horrendous. Worst airline food I've ever had. Check in and boarding area not great. Very overrated airline."
Pros: "The business class bed was the best I have yet encountered. The food and service were great. And the stews? Gorgeous and so agreeable. One young lady even helped me with my back injury; turns out she was studying physical therapy. You can't find a better ride than that,"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Bit on the cold side."
Pros: "Entertainment service is, really, second to none."
Cons: "Old plane, cramped seats, wrong tissue paper (unusabke) in bathrooms, instead of paper towels, unremarkable food, served almost cold, rushed staff which spilled water on me (offered S$75 voucher as compensation), however did not take thebtime to listen to requests from passengers who spoke poor English, etc."
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "Cramp set space. Lack of movie choices, not all had closed caption."
Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine . So I asked the staff for paracetamol when I reach to cabin. She response me very first with medicine and a cup of water . Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Pros: "Staff was the best, always smiling and going beyond expectations to assure you enjoy your flight and I certainly did. Take off was a breeze. Landing a little bumpy but nothing to cry about. I will fly Singapore whenever possible from now on."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."
Cons: "But we were meant to fly on an A380. This was an A320. Nowhere near the same legroom. Less entertainment options. No USB charging."

Cons: "Old B777-200 with small personal screen. And they don't have pillows on board."
Pros: "Great service and very friendly staff."
Pros: "We did not die in a hellacious ball of flame Aviation incident!"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating (required for bassinet) Row 41, my seat was practically in the aisle. No where to put my feet without getting trodden on by everyone! Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Seats seemed roomier in economy than other airlines. Lots on movie choices."
Cons: "I didn't care much for the meals, but my husband loved them."
Pros: "service, good TV quality and good movie selection"
Cons: "sound quality with headphones was horrible"
Pros: "The crew Were so attentive. And Also not untrusive. If i was asleep they left me and offered me food and drink when i woke. Excellent airline."
Pros: "The plane cabin, the ease of seat selection, friendly helpful cabin crew, quality and choice of food, facilities in the toilets (mouth wash, hand cream, etc), choice of entertainment, early arrival, the price."
Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."
Cons: "The Manchester stopover was just a lot of standing in lines. From Manchester to Singapore, the plane was full and my seat mates didn't get up when we needed out. So, we escaped to the back for a while where we were "hushed" by a stewardess. The stewards didn't seem to like it when we were out of our seats, but 12 hours is too long to be stuck in a middle seat."
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic. Not fresh. For 16 hours flight only two meals were served and no snacks were provided"
Pros: "Great Food"
Cons: "I have no complaint"
Pros: "They treat you very nicely on Singapore Airlines - from warm washcloths to wine with your meal. Seats are comfortable and the long flight not so wearing."
Cons: "My husband reacted to the spicy beef/rice dish served for breakfast."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Cons: "The entertainment choices were terrible."
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Older aircraft seats quite hard entertainment on last flight to Copenhagen entertainment was average."

Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were good but not as spacious as some other business class airline seats."
Cons: "The TV screen interferes with the tray table and could knock off food from the table."
Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better."
Cons: "Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight."
Pros: "Airline is pretty good"
Cons: "I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak."

Cons: "Aircraft cabin way too hot on both jouneys"
Pros: "The entire crew was excellent in all areas and all the time even on a 14 hour flight that had been delayed for about 20 hours."
Cons: "When we arrived in Auckland very late, Air New Zealand out me up in a third rate hotel in a very bad part of the city with little to no communication on how to get back to the airport the next day. The customer service number I was given, was mo help at all. Flights were great, but the way they handled the unexpected was very poorly done."
Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"
Pros: "Very professional staff"
Cons: "I don’t have an option of purchasing a meal during check in or at any moment during my booking."
Pros: "staff was lovely"
Cons: "didn't have a second pillow in business class bed was too flat for me. no other extras given. disappointing"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and went out of their way to do what they could to make everyone happy and comfortable."

Pros: "The crew, entertainment, and food were all great!"

Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and so accommodating. They were all quickly available during the entire 14 hour flight, and always had a smile. I thought the food was nice as well, and there were so many entertainment options."
Cons: "Having a bit more room during such a long flight would have been nice!"
Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."
Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."
Pros: "Left on time. And I got 2 snacks."
Pros: "The staff was nice."
Cons: "No room, It was painful for someone with nerve damage and severe arthritis to even get to a seat."
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Cons: "The captain was late to the airport so our flight was delayed"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating terrible for long haul flight"
Pros: "Crew, cleanliness, movies"
Cons: "Meals were so-so."
Pros: "Cabin attendants kind, friendly"
Pros: "How caring and involved the flight crew made everyone comfortable during the long haul."
Cons: "Hard to find anything that was wrong with my flight"
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "Low initial ticket price"
Cons: "Extra charge to get to sit next to my wife, which I was subsequently told I didn't have to pay because if my frequent flyer status (star alliance gold), but no, so sorry, no refund of that extra fee possible. Cheap!"
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Cons: "The touch screens on the seats for the entertainment are difficult to use because they are not very sensitive. I found myself having to tap the screen extra hard and repeatedly sometimes before it responded."
Cons: "For some unknown reason, I can not lower my seat when I wanted to get some sleep. As the air plane took off at 11:55pm, I was really sleep. After 10 minutes of maneuver, I decided to ask a flight attendant to help me figure out what happened to my seat. I pressed the button asking for attendant and waited for 5 minutes, no response. So I pressed the button again. IT showed that I had already pressed the button. So I kept waiting. But then no one ever came for me the 9 hours until it was time for the meal before getting off. Sitting straight sleeping was a really terrible experience!"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "They lost my bag and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The flight is long but is made better by having the in flight entertainment, food, and drinks for free. They don't nickel and dime you like united does"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Great check-in with Weimao, if I remember right. Got through security fairly quickly. Boarding was fine, a long way to the back . . ."
Cons: "The worst earphones I’ve ever used. They fell out at least 100 times while trying to watch Dumbo. There seemed to be reasonably good programming, but I wasn’t going to continue with those earphones. My ears were sore after trying many ways to get them to stay in my ears."
Pros: "Food on flight was decent. Hotel was nice, buffet breakfast was good!"
Cons: "Screens were better on the flight from Vancouver to Taipei."
Pros: "crew is OK, Seat is never comfortable for long ride."
Cons: "there is no room for improvement because of limited space."
Pros: "Crew was great... Seat was good"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight attendants."
Cons: "Food and quality of entertainment screen for economy."
Pros: "All ran on time. Crew okay"
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Food awful. For such a long trip-impossible to be comfortable in economy."
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: "Dinner served 1130 pm breakfast after 12 hrs peanut snack."
Pros: "Friendly airline staff. Ease of obtaining boarding pass at the counter. Clean, modern aircraft. Thanks China Airlines!"
Cons: "As with all airlines, the "the hurry up and wait" processes associated with getting onto the plane are tiring."
Pros: "Flight went well and was on time"
Cons: "Seats were a bit tight. I sat in the middle with other passengers on either side of me. The foot space was very awkward as there was a metal support from the seat in front of me. One foot had to be placed on either side of the bar, sharing space with each passenger on either side of me."
Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "30min Delay boarding and 30min delay on take-off."
Pros: "Comfy 777. IFE screen is bigger than other planes. Facilities are newer. It seems to be quiter too."
Cons: "There is one option for the breakfast."
Pros: "Services on the plane, flight schedule punctuality."
Cons: "No dislike on this trip from LAX to Taipei."
Pros: "Like everything but the seats. The flight attendants are amazing."
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was the chairs weren’t as comfortable as the seats from the flight to taiwan. My back hurt more."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."
Cons: "I got sick on this flight, and the concern expressed by the crew was about 0. Also, they don't understand the meaning of ice water. Water, with lots of ice! Serving an American destination, they should know how much ice Americans like in drinks. Normally not a big deal, but when you really need to cool down to keep from barfing, it is important."
Pros: "Checking in from Manila was excellent. The staff was nice and accommodating. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My ears were painful the whole time probably because it was a small aircraft."
Pros: "Nothing!. My brother and I got to the Airport 45 mins before the Check In Counter Closed but we didn't make it Thedue to the fact that we had a flat tire unexpectedly so my flight was cancelled and rescheduled to January 10, 2018 and paid extra $480.00 including penalty. If the Check in Counter did not close early, I could still be able to check in on time while there was still 45 mins remaining."
Cons: "The Check in Counter closed early while there was still 45 minutes remaining."
Pros: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Cons: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly and tried to to assist all passengers"
Cons: "My negative comment is always the boarding procedures when your section is called all sections rush to board as well as they need to be firm on carry on luggage"
Pros: "New planes"
Pros: "Lovely gracious Staff."
Cons: "One negative employee. Not so comfortable seat on new plane."
Pros: "The food, service, and seats were all great in economy. I typically fly UA and China Airline's entertainment system and seat comfort are definitely on par on this 777 when compared to UA's 787."
Cons: "I didn't like that we didn't have a free row since our flight was packed - but that's not really much of a negative."
Pros: "The economy class seats are actually some of the best to sleep in!"
Pros: "i like their food ."
Pros: "If you're seated on a row with collapsible monitor that stows like a tray as opposed to a monitor on the back of the seat in front of you, then you must end your entertainment or whatever movie you're watching earlier as the plane descends. The other monitors are played right up until the plane comes to a complete stop."
Cons: "My luggage was unlocked but the combination was locked when it landed; therefore I couldn't open the luggage."
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows. I have been on other flights with China Airlines where the seating was comfortable and roomy but this flight wasn't. The entertainment screen was not very user friendly. The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "Everything was acceptable"
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS SMOOTH AND QUICK"
Cons: "ONLY WATER TO DRINK WITH THE FOOD NO ORANGEJUICE APPLE JUICE OR COKE OR 7 UP"
Pros: "Good service and entertainment"
Cons: "Waiting anoher 4 hours for a plane to leave."
Pros: "Friendly staffs, decent leg room, boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "A little limited movie selections & food was ok"
Pros: "The chicken and rice dish was tasty. I also appreciated the fresh fruit."
Cons: "Airline somehow cancelled our spot on the flight without us knowing, only found out when we were doing the checkin at the airport. What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."
Pros: "The aircraft is very poor the seat is very bad condition you feel like you sitting on steel sheet for the link of the flight which is 13 deceit is very nerrow very bad condition , when I ask the host he said the aircraft is going to be retired next week so that's a very bad luck for us to fly 13 hour in this condition food is very bad I was disappointed out of the whole trip"
Pros: "They were very helpful with the connecting flight and ensured we made our way thru the airport quickly."
Cons: "All was fine but why can't my earphone jacks fit into the airplane jacks? As it is I need to hold it in place"
Pros: "Aside from the one issue mentioned, everything else was fine."
Cons: "The flight took off on time and then veered far off the usual route, resulting in arrival an hour late. If any explanation was given in any language, I must have missed it."
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and quick despite the size of the plan."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow and not much leg room."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."
Pros: "Generally comfortable. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Entertainment was limited. The screens were outdated, making it difficult to watch anything."
Pros: "schedule was still on time inspite of airport deficiency."
Cons: "waited for an hour inside the plane for take-off due to damaged airport runway assigned seat had poor leg room as expected when you are in economy was not assigned a seat for connecting flight to LA until we reached Taipei's pre boarding area. when we did we got the last 2 rows in the plane - 71 D & E. Turbulence is more pronounced. My head was shaking"
Cons: "They make you stay in China overnight EVERY flight layover......even by saying the weather is bad......others on my cancelled flight told me they'd waited 2 days for a flight but keep being sent back to a hotel"
Pros: "This flight was great and the attendants were very good and professional...awesome time..."
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Don't reach all the way to the knee, so it's painful on the thighs. Food was a little stale."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly, very little patience. Overall just the way they served us as passages. Had better crew service in other flights"
