Pros: "Every thing in airplane was wonderful. I would like to recommend this airline to my friends"
Cons: "You are best ."
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."
Pros: "It was great..."
Cons: "Lavatories on domestic flights in Japan are tiny. Like, super duper tiny."
Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. Food was excellent"
Pros: "33" seats"
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding!"
Cons: "I would have liked the ebooks section of the entertainment options expanded. I love to read and that would have greatly distracted from the discomfort of having to sit so long in such cramped quarters."
Pros: "Good crews."
Cons: "Space seats."
Pros: "Everything, the service and the food is great."
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "On time. Boarding was great. Flight wasn’t full so plenty of room to stretch out."
Cons: "Be able to select seats online within 24hours of flight for free"
Pros: "Excellent Service, food and beverage. Comfortable aircraft cabin atmosphere."
Cons: "in-flight Wifi is not working"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."
Pros: "It was very good no prO lens at all:)"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice. Food was okay, while the legroom was good too."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but the email notification from JL was lacking the most important detail... The new take off time! It was 70 minutes later than advertised, but then delayed by another five minutes on top after a late take off."
Pros: "The business class layout was very good. Seats comfortable with excellent cabin staff and the food and its presentation was A+"
Cons: "Hard to think of something here...possibly better movie selection and having to bus from plane to terminal... But that's about it!"
Pros: "I wish all long haul flights were like this. Very clean and well maintained cabin space, good quality food, very attentive, helpful and polite cabin crew. Never thought I’d be able to say this, but the 14 hour flight with two young children in economy was a really enjoyable experience with JAL!"
Cons: "Really no complaints"
Cons: "No space for cabin bags. Late by 2 hours. Super rude and passive aggressive staff. Kept in bus at Frankfurt for 10 mins. Won’t fly BA again if i can help it."
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Pros: "The seating on this plane was super spacious and comfortable- leg and seats. Also the seatbelt gave real room. The plane was cleaned; crew friendly, food delicious- featuring semi- famous chefs and well ventilated."
Cons: "Flights should enter from back to front that way you're not waking over people to get your seat.-"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything! My first flight was a little over 10 hours, but it didn't feel that way. I was very comfortable and the crew took very good care of all of the passengers. Japan Airlines is Ichi Ban!!!"
Pros: "The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is superb. It doesn't seem like we had a long flight because of the great service."
Pros: "So cramped. Very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "How about being stranded at Narita Airport due to bad weather AND not helping your passengers rebook. Told us the flight was cancelled at 10:30pm when suppose to fly out at 7:30pm. No trains or hotels available, only way to rebook was through their phone service? Which didn’t open until 8am. Why not rebook at the ticket desk, guess what? You can’t!"
Pros: "I got an upgrade!"
Pros: "From bathroom amenities to food/drinks on board. Japan airlines knows the meaning of service and I had a very pleasant flight."
Pros: "Service was exquisite."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew, the flight, the pilot to cabin communications, the food, and the movie selection was amazing. I am so happy that I flew Japan Airlines on my return trip. I would highly recommend them for your travels."
Cons: "A Japan Airlines employee escorted me every step of the way to ensure that I made my connecting flight from Tokyo to San Diego because I only had an hour and ten minute layover and this can be challenging when you’re in a foreign country. I cannot thank Japan Airlines enough for how easy they made traveling and how comfortable they made me feel. I Highly recommend flying Japan Airlines for your travels."
Pros: "No major disasters, comfortable seats, on time."
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous, spoke multiple languages, they came around multiple times to offer beverages, pilot/staff kept us informed about reason for delay to gate, arrived earlier than expected, usb charging available, bathroom was cleaned multiple times during flight, clean bathroom, and there were toothbrushes/sanitary pads available in the bathroom, and enjoyed that they had Haagen Daaz ice cream."
Cons: "The pocket in front had no room to put a drink/bottle. Food was relatively better compared to other airlines but okay. Movie selection was good but compared to other airlines has less."
Pros: "Good service and very clean plane."
Cons: "After having an enjoyable experience on the first Japan Air flight, the second flight from Narita to Manila was late to board & leave, the food was not nearly as appealing and the flight seats were noticeably less comfortable and less roomy than the first flight."
Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."
Cons: "Great airline great service. Haihly recommended"
Pros: "Simply excellent !!!"
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: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined her seat entire fought crushing my knees and leaving NO legroom, couldn't even use foot rests!"
Pros: "I was early to check in . But the check in was slow and I. Had to run to my plane ride .. and had no time to shop"
Cons: "The service was so so and food was lousy"
Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"
Pros: "Attendants were very supportive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Restroom smelled bad"
Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"
Pros: "On the flight home they upgraded me to business class while apologizing my original economy seat was not available. Amazing. I had a rather unsettled stomach so when the food service came I wasn't hungry. I told the flight attendant, and she brought me some very bland easy to eat food without me even asking. She then checked on me constantly to see how I was feeling, and suggested sparkling water. When I deplaned, she checked one more time with me, if they could do anything. I was feeling much better, and give this airline my highest endorsement."
Pros: "flying JAL is always a pleasure. The flight attendants are consummately professional and the entertainment system is top notch"
Pros: "The Japanese flight attentants were excellent. Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the other asian flight attendants. They were rude. Asked for water, she said we're not serving water only juice at this time. Asked for Consume or Dashi there weren't any. asked for diet coke they ran out. very small things but weren't able to satisfy our trip back to HNL."
Pros: "The food was good, which I didn't expect. The crew was kind."
Pros: "As always, the Japan Airline's stewardess takes care of you so well, they really make your trip a very comfortable one. (Think the Japanese airline crews are the most caring, with thorough service, and they are surely one of them."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Not a lot of vegetarian options"
Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."
Pros: "Cheapflights ..I will book my ticket from you again.. I am so delighted."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, eager to help. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you I had to change 3 months ago. I won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic patient & I couldn’t get my aisle seat so, I had to wake up my both side passenger too often. Missing my Hindi movies."
Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"
Pros: "Crew were super attentive. Friendly and helpful. Food was decent. Nice change from standard fare."
Cons: "This seemed an older plane so the size of the economy class seating harkened back to the days when your legs were numb halfway through the flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats were substantially more cramped than the other flight."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Disappointed with some of flight attendants. ANA used to provide best customer service."
Pros: "Service, crew, punctuality, plane, seats"
Cons: "Food, cold coffee and tea."
Pros: "We asked for the seafood meal option. Great food and we were served before regular meal service. The ANA staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable and the entertainment options were well-rounded. We hope to fly on ANA again!"
Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was good didn’t hate anything"
Cons: "1. Missed our flight connection in Chicago because of delayed take-off from Tokyo. We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later. 2. ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."
Cons: "Couldn’t print or get boarding pass for this connecting flight which was a bit annoying. Other than that, everything was amazing"
Pros: "The cabin crew was always found to be welcoming and co-operative attitude. Rest Rooms (Toilets) were found to be clean whenever visited."
Pros: "Typical ANA quality. Bumpy flight but handled very well."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Plane not full so had 2 seats to myself. Stewardesses nice but didn’t all speak English."
Cons: "Only got asked for a drink one time. I could have used a snack,but I was trying to sleep so maybe they just didn’t disturb me. Left bright lights on whole trip. No Wi-Fi on this flight available."
Cons: "We both - Wife and me - had to pay around 200 USD for TWO Extra Suitcases in spite of both being an ANA Flying Miles Members. Hence What is the uet of these ANA Miles Club (AMC) Membership? Remains an EYE-WASH................................."
Pros: "Very efficient, friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was gross."
Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."
Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
Pros: "Food and Sitting Space"
Pros: "The seats in business class are excellent. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. I'd fly ANA again especially on the 787."
Cons: "The entertainment is pretty limited , and the food selection is limited for western food."
Cons: "Coming from Kulalampur to Japan I missed flight from Japan to Chicago Ground crew refused to rebook me to next flight and then argument only booked up to Chicago and I had to call USA and my daughter to help There should be ground crew at gate for people who has short time to catch to facilitate There was no body and I was couple mts late In international flights they should rebook and give hotel I was traveling business class Poor in help Comfort and flight was ok Food not much choices"
Pros: "Shortest duration"
Pros: "Attentive, very prompt when I indicated that there was condensation drip from the cabin roof. Vegan/vegetarian food was well prepared and staff were very knowledgeable with food choices and options."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, very friendly staff."
Pros: "Same thing"
Cons: "I did not like in air port new Delhi my suite case was a damaged Told to air port employee he said may stuck in belt."
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: "Limited food and drink options, and was disappointed when both things I tried to order from the first meal serving were out of stock."
Pros: "The crew is awesome and food is quite good"
Cons: "Seat is terrible it's more like domestic flight than international, boarding is terrible because we have to take a bus by standing from terminal to flight"
Pros: "I like the food, service, and punctuality."
Cons: "Nothing I do not like"
Pros: "One of the best inflight meals. They serve snacks on top of main meal."
Cons: "The shuttle bus to the plane was crowded. Limited movie options."
Cons: "They refused to board because the united dis not allocate the flight date and ANA check in counter did not help to coordinate."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."
Pros: "Good staff, good service, good entertainment"
Cons: "Although my partner and I bought our tickets together and booked them almost 9 months in advance, we were not seated together, which made the flight more difficult and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food provided was tasteless"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Person sitting next me passenger wanted fight with me. She told me this is her space arm rest I can not use for over 9 hours. She smelled alcohol and perfume. which made very uncomfortable bad bad"
Pros: "I liked the friendly staff, the movie selection was also great!"
Cons: "The food wasn't great and they fed us as soon as we boarded and right before we landed. There was about 8 hours in between and we were starving!"
Pros: "Our seats did not recline, but were locked in the fully upright position, making it impossible to sleep. If this is policy for ANA, many customers will go to other airlines."
Pros: "The space, movies, & comfort"
Cons: "The food selection."
Pros: "Snacks, Timings, beverages, entertainment."
Cons: "Space, main course food"
Pros: "Excellent service and food"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "When I went to counter to get my seat assignment I was offered 25,000 yen to take a later flight because mine was overbooked. I agreed and began notifying my transportation at my final destination when I was told nevermind, space was no longer needed. This was aggrevating."
Pros: "I could not rate food and entertainment higher as food was not served and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Great assistance to elderly"
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: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Movie choice is very limited."
Pros: "Checking in was very good. I was a wheel chair passenger and the attendants took good care of me."
Cons: "I did t like the breakfast option at all. It was either eggs or fried noodles. I don't think that was an option at all."
Pros: "The choices of Japanese food are delicious and easy to eat on the plane. Staffs are professional and willing to help every time I saw them. Love their smiles."
Pros: "ANA has some of the best quality service I have seen on an airline for awhile. The crew is pleasant, welcoming, and very helpiful. The food was decent for an airline and there was enough space for me in the economy class. I'm 193 cm by the way. Space is required for long flights. The entertainment was very good with a volume selection of the lastest movies that recently came out a month or two ago. If you have a chance to fly ANA take it. You won't be disappointed."
Pros: "Absolutely ridiculous ... sat on the runway longer than the flight."
Cons: "Reason we sat on the runway longer than the flight is they were understaffed. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Crew kept bumping me in flight. Deplaning took too long."
Pros: "No middle seats. Crew was nice. More space for people."
Cons: "The ceiling next to the spot lights or calling for help was dirty. I was expecting everything to be wiped. I turned my air fan on, and my there were some brown spots on my hands. And I looked up, it was dirty up there."
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Pros: "no, not courtesy"
Cons: "select crew based in human and better relation"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "It was one of the best international flights I've been on. Overall a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Food quality is always an issue on flights."
Pros: "Really nice crew"
Cons: "The flight could’ve been on time and not delayed 24 hours"
Pros: "New long haul service is a real improvement in quality"
Pros: "the crew were amazing, very friendly, welcoming and attentive."
Cons: "Having food & being on time would’ve been nice?"
Cons: "Mechanical difficulty. Late Then missed connecting flight. 4 hours in a hotel. Then back to the airport the next day. Why can’t airline keep planes in good condition?"
Cons: "Bring back the Narita to Minneapolis."
Cons: "The flight attendant did not want to be there."
Cons: "Pay close attention when boarding in Cabo as they board multiple flights out of the same gate and it could be easy to get on the wrong bus."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Crew and generous pours of wine"
Cons: "The food was at best edible"
Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."
Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"
Cons: "Delayed because waited on a stewardess to show up. Wasn’t able to book my seats when we checked in. The last seats on the plane are horrible. Still waiting on the plane to unload. Definitely will rethink ever flying this airline again."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."
Pros: "The Delta desk attendant at CVG was unable to come up with another flight to get me from CVG to Colorado Springs on 6/13. There is nothing to like."
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "Coach seats still a little too small. Always bump the person next to me"
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Pros: "liked the main meal"
Cons: "didn't like the pastrami sandwich snack before landing."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Got in over an hour late. 140am"
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Entertainment in top notch... stewards were very pleasants"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The staff was excellent, and very patient with the customers"
Cons: "Being 6'2", the leg room left a lot to be desired, and I was cramping after approximately 9 hours flight time (flight to Tokyo)."
Cons: "Old 747 ER needs to be junked"
Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Great staff, snacks and beverages. Plane was brand new and nice. I think it had humidifier which was really nice"
Cons: "No TV behind seat. Boarding was a bit messy"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Fast boarding, crew, entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough lavatories, space is crazy small and the time should be changes. Arriving at 8am after spending half day awake is crazy. Unless you sleep the entire flight wI think no food no restroom."
Cons: "We were delayed to redo maintenance paperwork from a previous repair. This should not hold up flights and cause the plan to loose its slot for takeoff"
Cons: "Individual seat space is small, nor do seats recline much."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Arrival time is better than before."
Pros: "Crew made flight enjoyable. Lots of Starbucks coffee and food. Can use wifi for free to stream movies to iPad, which is much better quality in picture and sound than onboard video."
Cons: "Selection of movies to stream to device is fewer than what is available for onboard video."
Pros: "We always fly Delta out of Augusta, GA, our local airport. The check -in is a breeze and the folks are friendly. Delta has a number of flights out of there and overall it's the easiest and most economical for International flights. Your checked luggage goes straight through without the huge airport hassle!"
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "With the exception of comments below, everything was great."
Cons: "Although I understand bad weather is out of the airlines' hands, cancellation of flights seemed to be called a little early (ie to places that we just starting to rain before snow). It took me four days to get home (mnl-rap) because of cancelled flights"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Pros: "The meals on Japan Airlines (JAL) were delicious!"
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Pros: "Comfortable good service and friendly attendants and good price"
Pros: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."
Cons: "Waited 3hrs to leave the runway"
Pros: "787 Airplane is nice, very modern. Early Departure Early Arrival. Very smooth Flight. In Flight Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "There was hardly any food and no offering of coffee or variety of beverages on this International 10+ hour flight. Seats were small and not very comfortable. On arrival nobody seemed to know which terminal exit family should meet us at, and LAX "information" said they know nothing about what AA does. Unfortunately LAX is just a terrible airport for arrival or departures. But AA needs to show more clearly where family should wait to pick up arriving internal passengers."
Pros: "AA hired a stewardess from Taiwan who spoke to us in our language. She and her team all made sure our journey was comfortable."
Cons: "Meal, comfort, crew"
Pros: "Business class is wonderful"
Cons: "Bathroom floor was full of pee."
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time and arrived early at LAX."
Cons: "They ran out of breakfast. Seat configuration was 3-3-3 in economy and not 2-4-2 like on the JAL flight on the way to Japan. The level of professionalism is much higher on JAL in regards to the flight attendants than AA. The boarding process still needs a lot of work to be more organized (take a look at JAL as an example - they treat customers like kings and queens). Also, there was no way to get a seat assignment through the JAL website. That website looks and acts like it’s from the late 90s."
Pros: "-Good entertainment options -During takeoff, plane was on runway for nearly an hour with no word from the captain about delays, etc."
Cons: "-Seats too cramped -I was not informed that the breakfast option of egg omelet contained pork. I cannot eat pork for religious reasons and was unhappy to see this -Food was disgusting - hire a new chef or change your menu options"
Pros: "Crew members provide better service than I expected. It seems that American Airline has increasingly improved its service which is a good sign. Food was good. A wide variety of movies and otger entertainment on board is offered on each passenger's personal screen."
Cons: "Space for seats in such a long flight should have been bigger. Compared to other Asian airlines, AA seems to be thrifty on seat space."
Pros: "The onboard crew was very friendly and attentive. American’s service has been vastly improved on international flights over the past couple years. It’s always nice to have a good selection of on board entertainment to keep you busy for 10 hours."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized and I was told I wouldn’t be able to carry on my luggage even though I had flown 2 other American flights that week and had no problem. I measured my bag before starting my trip and it fit in the bin. After demanding an explanation from the gate agent. She let me board with it. The seats on every airline get smaller and smaller. have less leg room and are hard. I’m a 5’10 woman and was incredibly uncomfortable after a few hours."
Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "The flight crew were all very nice and attentive. The on-board entertainment kept me busy during my waking hours. I appreciated the complimentary blanket, pillow and earbuds."
Cons: "The quality of the food selections were ok but could have been better. The remote for the tv screen did not function well with the games. Also, the seats were very hard, sleep did not come easily."
Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."
Pros: "New plane with shades on windows. Comfortable flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Seats are on top of each other, very close space, too many people in that flight or should I say, too many seats for that short of space"
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "Very comfortable and enough drink service."
Cons: "AA charges extra for a lot of the economy seats which they claim are "premium" but do not warrant the excessive price tag."
Pros: "Crew pleasant. Food nice."
Pros: "Comfy and friendly. What's not to like up front?"
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Pros: "New airplain."
Cons: "As usual bad luggage handling in USA. At passport control, noticed that my luggage handle was removed half way but I had to re-check in the luggage and airline people did nothing about the handle with tag. And the luggage was lost. Can someone study how other country luggage handler care about customers ' luggage? Save your operation cost!"
Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Pros: "Nice attentive crew"
Cons: "The delays, gate changes in a massive airport, and general lack of information made this trip excruciating."
Pros: "Nothing except the movie selections and wine."
Cons: "Better seating... seats are small and crampy. The flight attendants were not friendly and attentive. I pressed the call button 3 times within an hour to receive headphones and they never came. My neighbor let me borrow hers. The food was terrible. Not many vegan options."
Pros: "Food was acceptable."
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and landed on time."
Cons: "The temperature was too cold to get comfortable. I had on a jacket and a blanket, drank hot tea and still managed to get a cold after leaving the plane. Also the food wasn’t good."
Pros: "Service, Hospitality, food, & comfort."
Cons: "Need more Hindi movies selection."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional."
Pros: "We arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I noticed two flight attendants hand hot beverages without looking at you when they pass it to you. Its a bit dangerous, especially if it accidentally spills on you. The Japanese translating flight attendant for flight UA78 on 3/27/19 was gruff and rude in her tone of voice. She needs some help!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "One flight attendant a little short with customers or maybe just dry humor, hard to tell. My daughter did not want to talk to him entire trip because of earlier altercation. It would be great if United could put in foot rests in economy and economy."
Cons: "I flew the first leg of my trip with ANA and the next leg with United and I certainly noticed a difference in terms of customer service. They are less friendly and seemed to have spent more time with a couple of passengers who appeared they know personally than the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Enough food was provided."
Pros: "Check-in at Narita was great!!! The entire process from obtaining boarding pass to dropping off luggage took less than 3 minutes."
Cons: "I could not check in online. Although I only have carry on I still have to go to the United Airlines counter to get my check in card. The food was awful. The crew was extremely rude ( I would present a proper complain through United Airlines website). The small tv were completely old. I bought a ticket for ANA but operated by United Airlines. but I was not expecting this awful experience."
Pros: "The plane was run by ANA. It was super clean, the food was good and the attendants were great"
Cons: "It was the best economy flight I have ever had. Super."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options for kids."
Cons: "Older plane, ageing bathrooms etc. Chairs not too comforatable and legroom limited. Staff ok, not particularly helpful or child-friendly. No headsets for kids. Adult earbuds do not work in little ears!"
Cons: "It was supposedly upgraded but my seat was shittier than the flight to Tokyo after it got delayed 7 hrs and no upgraded seat."
Cons: "When purchase we were told that this flight was operated by ANA airline and we got an ANA flight number, but turns out that it was United Airline and the service was much worse than ANA airline."
Pros: "The 787 dreamliner was such a fantastic aircraft, one of the best aircraft I've flown across the Pacific. Despite being delayed, the flight crew was so accommodating and helpful with getting us to our destination quickly and safely. I hope to fly this route again soon"
Pros: "Staff are so nice"
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Pros: "Punctual flight and not filled to last seat. Excellent amber beer.option, no extra charge for beer or wine. Crew members were friendly and eager to please. They were happy to supply extra snacks and coffee or water between regular service. Seat reservations were properly done (unlike a flight in June on Etihad)."
Cons: "In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. Location of electric outlets needs better (i.e. some) documentation; had to ask crew. The heat fluctuated between too warm and too cold; had to put on and take off a fleece every 10-15 minutes. Chicken option for dinner rated spicy, so had to opt for pasta. No Asian options on flight from Japan; sad. So-so movie selection, controlling screen not very easy, screen often too dark. The list of movies in the United Magazine was incomplete and inaccurate. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification."
Pros: "At least I could watch movies."
Cons: "After a long journey in Japan, flying United back to the U.S. was a rude awakening. Their crew has no regard for the manners or respect in Japanese society. I was sitting in an exit row aisle behind a restroom in economy. The staff kept bumping into me and my entertainment system as they tried to rush up and down the aisles. Really taking a breath and walking more slowly could have resolved this. At one point, the staff almost caught my arm between my seat and their rolly cart. The plane was old and in disrepair. My neighbor's entertainment system screen needed to be propped up with duct tape. The seats are stiff and uncomfortable, and the headrests are designed so that if you have a U head support, it will collide with the headrest and curve your back into a C. Some staff could use a refresher on basic Japanese. One flight attendant kept asking everyone "US Citizen or 日本語？" which means Japanese Language. Those are not mutually exclusive questions for many bilingual flyers. I usually tolerate airplane food, but this was the first meal I could not eat on a plane. It was eggs and hash browns, and it was so mushy and salty, I decided to pass. The bathrooms dirty quickly, and are a disappointment compared to the amenities provided on your basic Asian carrier. No toothbrush. No hand lotion. Just soap. We left Narita after 5 pm, and were served this weird dinner breakfast meal. Six hours later (of a 12 hour flight) it was about 11 pm in Tokyo, and 7 am in the destination city of Houston. Might as well get back to American schedules? I don't know, but when I was naturally getting tired and putting on my sleepmask and earplugs to get some rest, a rude flight attendant kept asking me if I wanted breakfast or orange juice, shoving items in front of me (with one hand, a no-no in Japanese culture), and repeatedly asking me despite me shaking my head no. I really don't know where they hired these people. My bag got held up by customs in Houston, and United transfered it to a third party courier service who tried to call me at 1 am to deliver it. That was a bit later than I expected, and I missed the call. The next day, I tried to call the driver, who hung up on me! I called their customer support, who was unable to contact the driver or the delivery service. Just who did they hand my bags to? Thankfully, after an 18 hour wait, I got my bags back, but it was a stressful wait. Throw a dart at a list of Asian airlines, they're all better than United."
Pros: "Crew very efficient and nice"
Cons: "Being it’s a flight from Japan a more Japanese meal would’ve been better"
Pros: "The flight got us back home alive."
Cons: "mechanical delays in Tokyo with only fair communication especially after we were in the plane."
Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Pros: "Everything went really smoothly!"
Pros: "Zero Nothing"
Cons: "I was kinda shocked even in Japan United's staffs attitude was terrible. I wasn't expected that. Really not happy about this"
Pros: "The staff are really nice, they try to help to their best abilities."
Cons: "The only thing was that there were many loud children, there's no helping that."
Cons: "UA check-in staff in NRT was very rude. We had reserved seats when we booked the tickets over Kayak by paying about $15. UA staff said they didn't know that, its not in their system. They implied we were cheating because UA always charges about $200+ for reserving seat. They even didn't want to listen and look at the receipt we had. What he said in terrible English was "That is not my business""I'm busy" So my daughter and I had to seat separately in order to seat next to aisle. UA will be my last choice to fly."
Pros: "Assigned seat - delayed because of hot breaks but stayed on tarmac to cool while cooled only about 10 min."
Cons: "Airline stewardess should have suggested mom with young child in lap could move to empty row of seats."
Cons: "The space in the seat, too narrow, difficult to to strenghten feet. Also the bathroom already smelly, I understand that but needs to have freshener."
Pros: "The overall rating of the trip was positive, however, the staff at times was very disrespectful and unhelpful."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "The crew were pretty quick and responsive and the seats were pretty good."
Cons: "The dinner was alright but the breakfast was awful. The breakfast was the worst I ever had on a flight and the only thing I found edible were the little cookies that came with it. I had the omelette meal and it made me sick taking even one bite of it and the smell was pretty bad too."
Pros: "The entertainment was okay although the controls were having some issues since they weren't working properly"
Cons: "The unfriendliness of some of the crew. We were given ice cream and it came with a wood spoon however I am allergic to wood utensils and asked one of the crew members if they could provide me with a plastic spoon or a plastic fork and he just ignored me and I had to go all the way in the back to ask to another crew member for a plastic utensil."
Pros: "Direct TV was on the seat monitor and it was distracting and annoying."
Pros: "Cabin arrangement and chair configuration."
Cons: "Although acceptable, service on United is nowhere near the quality of service on ANA."
Cons: "It was an old plane being retired. The leg room was very small. It had no individual screens and not all the large cabin screens worked,"
Pros: "The crew to be more friendly. Crew were quite rude."
Pros: "I am surprised by the strong attitude and the rude way of treating the passengers by the personnel of the airline"
Pros: "Movies were great. Crew was helpful but seemed flustered."
Cons: "Food was terrible for a ten hour flight; I think we all had upset stomachs from it. Passenger next to me was huge and definitely had mansplain going, not cool."
Cons: "Was not able to pick my food choice as I was sitting in the back rows even though I paid the same amount for the ticket as the person who sat 20 rows I. Front of me and could pick their prefer food"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food in seating"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and earlier. The pilot was awesome and landed the plane as gently as I've felt it could be. The plane was super awesome! I loved the ample space on the overhead bins and also love the newer entertainment systems. Speaking of entertainment, thank goodness it had new movies and included Disney."
Cons: "Too many public announcements. Kept interrupting entertainment. Then again, I sat in 32B and my screen was frozen for like half the flight. I told the flight attendant, can't remember her name, she was black, but she said she'd restart it but it never worked. I told her more than once, and it still wasn't fixed. She never even came back to check whether it was working or not. She just ignored it. But all the rest of the crew were wonderful. Also wished the boarding were in order. Each group should board in order, that way we can place our carry-ons above our own seats."
Cons: "Flight delayed, food was horrible i have seafood allergy and theres no other choice. It took a while to dock. Everything was horrible."
Pros: "They sent me a text message telling me it was canceled"
Cons: "Unfortunately, despite the text message saying the flight was canceled, the ANA ground staff in Taipei that we talked to assured us it was not canceled. But it was. And so ensued 24 uncomfortable hours of pain. Thanks, United."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."
