Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Cons: "No additional comment"
Cons: "Trip to Manila from Tokyo was delayed for 3hrs plus"
Pros: "Wonderful crew"
Pros: "The ANA crew at Haneda airport were very polite, professional, and very patient with me. However due to an online error between the ANA US website and the ANA JP website my confirmed seat on my flight was given to another passenger so I was kicked off. How this happened I dont know."
Cons: "Fix ANA US-JP online booking system."
Pros: "Flight attendants are so courteous and professional!"

Pros: "they assisted my aunt very well all through out her flight"
Pros: "Leg room at seats were spacious, comfy. However , toilets could be cleaner."
Cons: "This is 2 nd time I flew JAL. And food was below average. Should offer cup noodles or biscuits if pax is hungry ."

Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "More space"
Pros: "Spacious leg room"
Cons: "Toilets can be cleaner . And food could be tastier with 2 choices ."
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."
Pros: "We traveled with our 1.5 year old and JAL was incredibly accommodating and made our trip very enjoyable. They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was smooth and provided impeccable service."
Pros: "It was impossible to breathe throughout the 13-hour flight. It was very hot and humid. Several people asked for the temperature to be adjusted but they never really took care of it. The food was really cheap and stale--quite a disappointment for an expensive flight Tokyo-New York."
Pros: "Was fed a meal and snacks/drinks for this connecting 3 hour flight in economy. Hard to sleep in the economy seats, But with a blanket and thick clothes it would be better! Japan Airlines crew extremely nice!"
Pros: "Attentive staff. Great food. Great service. Vast improvement over Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Crew was great, just like Japanese specific hospitality. Crew clean up toilet and keep refilling toilet supply. Airplane was nice and clean. Entertainment equipment was up to date."
Cons: "I could not log in in JAL website using mileage account. They said it has been maintanance mode for a while and could not tell when it would be completed. I tried a month later but the problem was not solved. They foward any problems and inquiries to reservation center but calling the number won't find anyone to talk. Always they put me on hold for hours and never reached anyone. I have food allergy and tried to request for special meals but the option was not there under my eticket number as described in their website. They say the option may not be available because I purchased my ticket from 3rd party, not from JAL or it was code share flight. Very inconvenient. I had to skip 2 meals out of 3in leaving for Japan. I got very hungry at the end of the flight...."
Pros: "Comfortable big seats. Great service by crew members. Clean and like new cabin."
Cons: "More variety on audio entertainment may be added."
Pros: "Fast and eady"
Cons: "Couldn't pick seating or check in online so I was separated from my husband"
Pros: "If I could give the crew 10 stars I'd ask to give em 20 cause they wer AMAZING. So nice and polite i enjoyed my flight so much. They wer very attentive and always smiling. Simply lovely."
Pros: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"
Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"
Pros: "Japan Airlines gets it right. The boarding was very calm and efficient. The attendants were working the whole flight to make the trip pleasant. Food was good."
Cons: "There could have been a few more diverse choices on the entertainment channels but generally OK. The one complaint I had was that it was hot on most of the flight."
Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Cons: "Everything. Screens were small. Leg space was little to none. Food was trrrible. I will never fly with JAL again"
Pros: "Quick local Flight. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "The courtesy and professionalism is a 10."
Cons: "Checking in with Japan Airlines was a serious hassle. I had my e-ticket but they kept asking me if I had already paid. The flight was apparently overbooked but than at the last minute, they gave me and my girlfriend seats separated from each other. I sat in the back, she sat in front. The tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."
Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "It was an evening flight, but the cabin lights were never dimmed, so it was difficult to rest."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."
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: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, food was terrible"
Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "There was a huge amount of new and classic movies to chose from to pass the time. The crew was friendly and professional. The food was decent. I like the variety of food choices and some of the dishes were delicious (salmon and rice). The seats are pretty comfortable. They aren't great for sleeping in, but the flight was decently quiet and dark for some time. I would recommend bringing a pair of earplugs and a neck pillow."
Cons: "The bread could be better. I would have the bread be softer and warm. A warm croissant as a substitute would be amazing.The butter could be softer (like margarine) so that way it can actually be spread onto the bread."
Pros: "The personnel from JAL was excellent as was the flight, food, boarding and comfort."
Cons: "We were informed our flight was not to land in Haneda but at Narita. We specifically picked that flight pattern because of the ease of traveling from Hawaii to Haneda to Naha. We wouldn't have to drag two large suitcases and a rollaboard after checking out of customs and immigration very far. Same airport to land and depart. Well the arrival airport was changed to Narita $32.00 per person for Airport Limobus to Haneda. We get off at Haneda and are informed we cannot stay there and wait at the domestic airport for our 6:25 am flight to Naha. We had to load all 6 pieces of luggage on the shuttle bus and transfer to the international terminal because they close the domestic terminal at midnight. There was no hotel accommodations at the domestic airport as the hotel was booked two months in advance!!! We had to wait at the international airport terminal till 4:30 am when we then transferred back to the domestic terminal with our 6 pieces of luggage. Tell me how happy you'd be!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."
Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."
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: "With Japan Airlines, there is never a doubt in my mind they are going to be the best airline of choice. I was running late to my flight into Haneda to fly out to Singapore. I literally arrived to the front desk 15 minutes before the plane departed. The ladies at the front desk were very aware of my urgency and walked me threw the crew line and got me to my gate without a missed flight. I cannot thank you enough for the kind and generous work you do."
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."
"Flight attendants were super chill and the flight was comfortable. They provide passengers with lots of bottles of water (two or more even); yay for hydration!"
Pros: "It was nice that middle seats were not filled."
Cons: "It was silly that the flight attendant said we had to pull mask up between bites of food."
Cons: "No social distancing at all while boarding and exiting the plane you must keeplpeople in their seats !!! I love your airline although I usually just pick the best deal but it’s always a pleasure when that option is also delta"
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling. The boarding rear to front should have been in place years ago and the deplaning was about normal front to rear with distancing."
Pros: "The space between passengers."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect."
Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."
Pros: "Cree was great. The switch from one airplane to another was smooth. Snacks were great selection and enjoyed the WiFi"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Poor communication on delays. No wifi. No service. Couldn’t use lavatory."
Pros: "Great seat and always on time."
Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"
Cons: "Employee was slow getting to the booth to check us in along with baggage;"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Gave the option to chose seat"
Pros: "I love the Airbus aircraft we were flying in. It is far superior to the boeing."
Pros: "I asked at the gate to change my seat in row 30 because I was not next to my husband. The crew arranged this! Loved the leg room! Service was perfect."
Cons: "Flying first class!"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "More food."
Pros: "The landing was super smooth! Compliments tip the pilate:-)"
Cons: "I upgraded to Premium+ and it did not feel like an upgrade from a comfortability standpoint."
Pros: "Al the amenities were provided."
Cons: "In this day and age Wi-Fi should be provided always. Unfortunately it wasn't on the flight from Tokyo back to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Quick, on time flight. That’s always good!"
Cons: "Lead attendant spoke so fast that he was hard to understand."
Pros: "Small plane without bells and whistles and no middle seats."
Cons: "The internet would not work. I couldn’t use any of the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was nice and funny"
Cons: "The free messaging WiFi didn’t work for me"
Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."
Pros: "Delta crew & flight were excellent no complaints!"
Cons: "We were stopped by the Delta crew checking tickets as we got on to the flight. They let a party of 7 with a small child cut us in line. They even allowed another traveler to board with them. We were a party of 8 w/ 2 people in wheelchairs. They would not allow us all on & said only one could accompany them both. They were also very rude and unorganized."
Pros: "Flight crew was ok"
Cons: "Missing my connecting flight due to Delta incompetence and spending Christmas travel in ATL again."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "Delta planes are typically nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times."
Pros: "Good price, good boarding and arriving, friendly and quick crew, LOTS of fluids. Restrooms cleaned frequently!! Great legroom."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was to hard. Food should have an Asian option, the touch panel display of entertainment system worked very slow and poorly, was hard to navigate."
Pros: "Seating was ok but had better for a premium coach."
Cons: "The tv screen. Touch pad was not working properly on both legs."
Pros: "gate agents were friendly and efficient boarding. FA were fine and quickly served beverages and reurned two more times offering snacks and more drinks. comfort class seats were comfortable. all in all perfectly fine"
Cons: "i was not able to use my RU cert even after applying it over one month before and having diamond status.... makes me think why bother with status"
Cons: "Seemed like most everyone is now on Group 1, so boarding was very chaotic and slow."
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process. I booked the tickets months ago, but didn't have seats until the last minute. They didn't even put my wife and I together, but sandwiched 2 people between us. Boneheads."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and the newer plane was very very nice!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "it was easy to navigate ."
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."
Pros: "The flight was good. It crashed zero times. I was pleased not to check my carry-on bags. They were attentive in calling for wheelchair assistance for me."
Cons: "Seats are consistently too small."
Pros: "the inflight service and the quality of food was outstanding."
Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."
Pros: "Service was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was insanely delayed. Three hours. With a major product launch the next day, it was not ideal."
Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "The time traveled to get to my destination! It would not be my choice if I was to fly again."
Cons: "The customer service. The flight attendants needs to take some more training on how to provide a better service to paying customers. The seemed a bit unfriendly!"
Pros: "The delta connection flight waited for our flight so we were able to make our cruise :-)"
Cons: "The delay in the beginnning caused a bit of anxiety that we might miss our connecting flight which could've resulted in a missed cruise"
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, and delayed again, and finally delayed to 18 hours after original takeoff time. I was rebooked on a flight for the following after, and that flight has been delayed twice so far. Never again will I fly Delta."
Cons: "That I never made it to my destination"
Pros: "From curbside check-in to landing the plane, overall excellent service ! Very pleased to find out they offered a shuttle from checkin to the gate. I am having knee surgery soon and the walk from security to gate 34 LaGuardia would have put me over the top with pain! It was a very nice gentleman that gave me a ride to the gate and even stopped to let me use the bathroom. Thumbs up *****"
Cons: "The fact that I was charged $150 to check a small cosmetics bag is no loose change ! I would have carried it on but my hand is in a brace and I has to have extensive surgery. Then yoy get to the gate, and they repeatedly asked for volunteers to check their bags for free. I think this is a very unfair policy and try to explain it to the curbside attendant. I literally cannot carry more than five pounds in my left hand until I get bone replacement surgery. I'm also having knee surgery soon and this small additional weight would be caused me excruciating pain ! They didn't care and still charged me $150 for a bag thats no bigger than 12 inches and weighs less than ten pounds. Thats the way you treat your first class passengers? One other quick note: the sausage and egg sandwich? that was served for breakfast was absolutely horrible! Thumbs down !"
Pros: "Space, seats, movies."
Cons: "I was on a seat at the end, after my seat, the stewardess had their closet and they kept hitting (very strongly) the back of my seat with the door, all the time. They woke me up several times. So not good."
Cons: "Never happened,missed flight"
Pros: "No I was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Not have canceled my flight!!"
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "Fantastic seats are very comfortable. Makes long trips like this one actually enjoyable."
Cons: "For business class the food could be improved."
Pros: "Seat had spacious leg room entertainment was very good"
Pros: "Crew was so attentive and helpful. Very courteous and friendly. Had great experience."
Cons: "Head rest on Seats tilts slightly forward making long flight uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Service in cabin"
Cons: "Wish we had empty seat between us, w both the same name it should hv been possible. Special meal bland"
Cons: "A snoring passenger in a seat ahead of me. Tight seat."
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"
Cons: "No complaints except for the how long is the flight, but it’s a part of a journey"
Pros: "Everything was fine, the crew was excellent. We liked that Lufthansa did provide the special meals (that we requested on-line) for our family."
Cons: "The boarding was rather slow (but not extremely so). Calling boarding by row ranges, like some other airlines do, may speed it up or make it more comfortable. The seats were not too comfortable, but within what one can expect for an Economy class --- and not too bad, either."
Pros: "Staff is great"
Cons: "Food is not good."
Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Pros: "Flight was on time and flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Leaving Germany, I expected better tasting food. Our food leaving the USA and going to Germany tasted much better."
Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"
Pros: "Wi-Fi and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" cramped in economy"
Pros: "Great service. Comfortable business class seats."
Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, bathrooms clean. Despite a late departure we arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a bit warm on both flights from DTW to FRA and the return. I usually dress for flying assuming it will be chilly but it was the opposite, a bit warm. No individual air control either. the last meal served was a ham & cheese sandwich which tasted odd..I couldn't eat it, other meals were fine."
Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were excellent and the service never stopped. The plane was comfortable and the bathroom clean. There was some turbulence, but that is not the fault of the airline, nor did it really bother me."
Cons: "There was a snarky attendant, but not all of them were that way."
Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The sound quality of the loud speakers for the announcement was awful. The sound for the movies was also not great."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything was fine even though the plane was late,"
Pros: "My wife and I ran from our connection all the way from one end to the other and the crew could tell. They said after I stow my carry ons to corn to the back and get a drink and use the bathroom to cool down as we were just about to take off to taxi to the runway. The crew was absolutely great and the I. Flight entertainment and food was great. We just wish our luggage had made it back too. We are still waiting to see where our luggage is - if in Europe still or Dallas."
Cons: "I would say that other passengers had their kids behind us and they kept screaming and kicking our chairs. We told the woman to tell her kids to stop but all she said was “they are a child” when all they needed to do was just tell their kid to stop. Flight attendants saw and knew but I don’t know what they could do to help when they can’t help with bad parenting. I wish there was a clear way to upgrade to first class on a trip as it was difficult to find out how."
Pros: "Great Service Great Stuff will continue with LH in the future"
Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"
Pros: "Great service from a super crew. On time."
Pros: "Boarding, seat and crew"
Cons: "Movies selection and audio offers"
Pros: "Flight and land was smooth. I like Lufthansa, because it is safe."
Cons: "My trip was 8 hrs, we get water or juice only 5 times and very small cup 100ml, not enough"
Pros: "No vegetatarion food on return flight"
Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"
Pros: "I received a surprise upgrade to Business class. The flight crew was very attentive and flight was easy."
Pros: "A very nice flight overall. Plane left 40 minutes late to wait for other connecting flights but caused me to miss my connection later that day. Was compensated with hotel room and dinner."
Cons: "Amount of time waiting for crew to address my call button request. Almost 20 minutes waiting for flight attendant to respond."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Pros: "ON TIME."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was amazing. The food was fantastic, the service was better, and my comfort was always at maximum. This company makes all American domestic companies pale in comparison."
Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."
Cons: "We had no complaints or suggestions. Flying with Lufthansa was a wonderful experience during a difficult situation."
Pros: "Flight cancelled see above"
Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."
Pros: "Seats were really good despite the fact that it is economy class. Food was very good، and entertainment was a blast، watched 4 movies during the flight. The crew members were really polite and helpful. Lufthansa will be a choice for me for any further travels."
Cons: "My trip from Washington to Amsterdam wasn't pleasant at all، because it was operated by United Airlines، which I do not recommend or even try again."
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "The flight was on-time and very smooth. Check-in and baggage drop were incredibly easy. I also liked the self-scanning of the boarding passes to board. Great number of options on personal entertainment screen - including movies, tv shows, and music that people actually want to listen to! Great flight overall."
Pros: "Service by crew on board."
Cons: "Delay after boarding flight."
Cons: "Only the lunch wasn't good, there was only pasta at the moment"

Pros: "The flight time are on time ."
Cons: "Good entertainment on broad"
Pros: "CBP info."
Cons: "Wish AA cabin crew would treat the customers as attentively and friendly as the JAL crew. The 8pm inflight dinner is horrible. Why would they serve the cold dishes for the first Japanese course? I got a diarrhea."
Pros: "Take off 20 minute early. Super on time."
Cons: "The food can be better."
Cons: "Pilots could have at least tried to talk to passengers on what was causing delays. Just silence"

Pros: "In flight entertainment and food were great"
Cons: "Wish seats were comfier and more legroom"
Pros: "Lots of legroom with good complimentary foods and drinks."
Cons: "Overhead speakers in he plane weren’t very loud."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Pros: "Meal and drink service was excellent"
Cons: "Economy plus is packed liked sardines and difficult to move from side to side. Also upgrade doesn’t include priority seating. It should be included in any seating upgrade."
Pros: "On time boarding taking off and landing in Grand Rapids. Crew was very nice and let me keep my whole can of soda."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and that must have been the decision of the airline. We landed early and taxied and waited for a long time, more than 30 min until we actually pulled up at gate, also the airlines fault."
Pros: "The flight attendant for the back of the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The plane was unbearably hot and stuffy. My row wasn’t offered any snacks (some other rows were). A giant moth flew into my forehead, which was extremely startling. There was no entertainment offered and no power outlets for my phone, which was dead."
Pros: "Good service. The crew was very attentive. The pilots were very good about relaying Typhoon related issues to the passengers; and doing their best to get us to our destination as close to on time as they could"
Cons: "Everything sucks"
Cons: "Still waiting to get to the terminal."
Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."
Cons: "Snacks and food in general on US operated airlines is generally sad. American Airlines should learn from Qantas about food quality and service."
Cons: "Assigned middle seat, no choice."
Cons: "My ticket was issued by JAL but it was printed oersted by American Air. I was confused which terminal I should go to checo in. I called JAL. i waited 2 hours. No answer. Then, I called AA. They said international. But i went to terminal 4 which is American Air just in case because it was OPERATED by AA. I was right! I hope someone gave me a correct info."
Pros: "Super nice plane. High tech . Comfortable. Good food"
Pros: "The selection of music and movies to watch was extensive and wide ranging. All the Star Wars movies as well as great Disney movies as well."
Cons: "Felt very rushed when eating. Once the food/drinks were dropped off, it seems right away the staff was ready to pick up and clean."
Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."
Cons: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."
Pros: "there were 2 meals"
Cons: "were unable to pre-select without incurring an additional fee so our group of four was split up"
Pros: "The crew was very good"
Cons: "The food was not good on this flight."
Cons: "The service was mediocre and the food was horrible! It made me sick!"
Pros: "I loved that kayak grouped all my flights together into one easily accessible travel guide. The convenience of it all helped me out tremendously during my first visit to Japan. Overall a wonderful experience!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty good on the flight. That is my only positive experience."
Cons: "The seats were incredible jam-packed together. We had a 9 1/2 hour flight from Tokyo and could not even sit without our knees touching the seat in front of us. My tray table couldn't even properly extend -- the seats are so tight my tray just folded up on top of me. The food was BAD. 1/3 edible out of each course, consistently. I saw other passengers also dumping untouched trays of mystery meat that came as a side. They handed out egg-tomato-cucumber sandwiches which were inedible. The tomato had gone bad and the egg had a sour taste -- I gagged when I took the first bite. I'm especially disappointed with the seat spacing, though. I had a really difficult time getting in/out of the seating aisle to use the restroom. Even with our bags stored under the seat, I couldn't get in without tripping on/getting my foot caught in the strap of our purses/backpack. I couldn't even turn on one side without my arms or legs touching the passenger next to me -- sore neck, sore back, and still couldn't even get a wink of sleep. I will not be flying internationally with American Airlines again. They are the epitome of an airline trying to cash in on as many seats as possible. Save yourself the trouble and fly Japan Airlines directly -- their food was great and their seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "I wish they have two sheets. I don't like to sit next to stranger. And hard to go to bathroom"
Pros: "Im very upset with the flight"
Cons: "What you guys did its unfair I paid for a reservation. The way you run the business its not right"
Pros: "It's convenient that was next to a laboratory."
Cons: "It's convenient that my seat by a laboratory but since the way to laboratory is narrow the crews kept bumping my seat by the catering carts that kept woke me up while resting..."
Pros: "The different variety of movies that was shown as well as the usb port."
Cons: "No free wifi, more meals, and more drinks."
Pros: "This JAL flight was actually operated by american airlines using an american airlines plane. This flight was not great compared to the JAL flight we took to Haneda which was actually a JAL plane which was roomier and had pretty good food."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty, overly sauced. The breakfast options were salmon or omelette and i got salmon. It was spongy and didn't look like salmon. It must have been mashed with something else and reformed into a roll form."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "I liked the promptness and great service I would fly with them again :)"
Pros: "JAL is awesome overall. Super friendly crew. It was a short flight so no good was given but I did get little treats. There wasn't a tv to watch anything but I survived."
Cons: "I was expecting to be on an JAL flight but it wasn't JAL and was operated by american airlines and I feel ripped off."
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and I liked the film selection."
Cons: "I was placed in the back of the plane and subsequently they ran out of the food option I would have chosen. There was only pork left which I cannot eat. I was left hungry and the stewardess was rude about it- I understand that she was likely tired as I was in the last row but it's literally her job. The flight was also pretty turbulent- which is usually worse in the back of the plane."
Pros: "Good variety of entertainment options. Wifi reliable"
Cons: "Food options were horrible. Need to offer non seafood/pork option."
Pros: "We bought the extra legroom. Worth it."
Pros: "I liked the boarding, entertainment, and food."
Cons: "I did not like the cramped legroom. The airline got greedy and crammed too many rows of seats in the plane, cramping the legroom for all the economy passengers. Legroom in economy was MUCH better on the Japan Airlines plane (also a 777) that I was on from Los Angeles to Japan. Legroom is always important, but especially so on long trans oceanic flights. I am inclined to avoid American Airlines in the future because of that.qa"
Pros: "Food, flight plan on the screen, selection of music and movies, that the lights were turned down for sleep, quiet efficiency of the crew"
Pros: "Roomy legroom and proximity to the restroom"
Cons: "There is limited recline."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the movie selection in flight was among the best I've had on a plane."

Pros: "Japan Team excellent in customer service"
Cons: "AA flight crew very poor and not helpful, I saw one of the flight crew almost fight with a customer over a baby crib. As per my experience I had a nice travel suit that I took off and flught attendant did not offer help. I have to store on floor."
Cons: "The front desk in Vancouver, Canada did not allow me to board the plane to Tokyo. I am supposed to attend the memorial service of my Mom who passed away two days before."
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "More tv selection"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food was literally inedible. The breakfast of mushroom omelette and sausage was so unsavory, I could see the line where the outter “eggy” shell covered the inside, decidedly less eggy and hidden section. I had to stop eating it after 3 bites. Very disappointed with food quality."
Pros: "Crew members was nice,"
Cons: "Seat was okay and plane was a bit delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and there was no communication at the gate at all, while we sat in a really hot and humid Newark airport. Then the baggage handlers neglected to load an entire luggage cart onto the plane, so our suitcase did not make it home with us. We did get it later, but I am not impressed at all by this experience."
Pros: "Food was way better than I expected."
Pros: "United combined two half full flights, left us on the plane waiting for the second flight passengers to load"
Cons: "Yet another United flight delay and cancellation.United combined two half full flights, left us on the plane waiting for the second flight passengers to load"

Pros: "Everything other than the time"

Cons: "As previously noted."
Cons: "Same thing, we weren't seated together like I thought I had booked the seats."
Cons: "Jerking us around with delays and moving gates back and forth. O'Hare is huge, I ended up walking miles back and forth."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, pilot did a great job, some turbulance but he handled it well, good landing too."

Cons: "No wifi or TV on the planes."
Pros: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Pros: "Very accommodating cabin crew."
Cons: "Sitting in a little plane for 3 hours wasnt any fun,that and same reasons as above"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for almost an hour before takeoff. We actually sat so long that they did the safety demonstration twice. It was absurd. Mistakes happen, but my overall trip must have fallen in the unlucky category. I'll continue to use kayak, but I'll be reluctant to book United Airlines."
Pros: "This was one of the planes you are starting to hear about where the seats are spaced so close and are extremely narrow. This was redicolous for such a long flight. Hope the talked about law suit on this goes through this seating is unsafe. Plane we flew from Chicago to Grand Rapids was more comfortable and you could really see the difference in seat spacing and size."
Cons: "It was on time."
Pros: "It was great all the way. No complaints"

Cons: "Flight delayed with several gate changes"
Pros: "Flight crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seating space was uncomfortable; too little space to comfortably sit. Also, the plane squeaked a lot around the back of plane. Sounded like brakes of plane needed some attention. Also the plane was late coming into Houston; however I believe the pilot made up the time and we arrived within minutes of initial arrive time."
Pros: "I was able to board early since I have a United MileagePlus Explorer card."
Cons: "The seats in economy has very limited legroom and the large and over weight Caucasian seating next to me frequently took the arm rest and cross over into my space. The airplane did not have individual monitors. And trying to watch a movie on my phone over United's wi-fi was a terrible experience since the signal keeps dropping."
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Pros: "This is the way it is supposed to work. Great staff, great flight. Was delayed, but handled very well."
Pros: "I bought through kayak, bought he insurance when I got here flight. Tried to change my flight.. they wouldn't except the insurance... I fly out tomorrow.. Hopefully things go well"

Pros: "Super crew, slightly more comfortable"
Cons: "Economy seats are never great."

Cons: "The United app didn't appear to help much in rebooking since it never confirmed whether or not it was accepted and never changed his boarding pass."
Pros: "The person next to me"
Cons: "The fact that they over booked the flight. Couldn't give me a seat unless someone volunteered to give up their seat. Then last minute gave me the seat of someone who didn't show up. It really was uncomfortable and the worst feeling when you're potentially not going to be able to go home to see your family. Especially when you're going for 4 days & they wanted you to sit in the airport of an additionally 5 hours until the next flight."
Cons: "The plane was delayed and it was very annoying to get to Grand Rapids late."
Pros: "The United wifi free with a tablet was nice."
