Pros: "Love everything"
Cons: "Seat cushion could use more cushioning. Larger portions of drinks served"
Cons: "one crew member did not like her job, tossed the food to you, and was not pleasant like all the others."
Pros: "Seating and service"
Cons: "Flight to Haneda airport not Narita"
Pros: "JAL flight crew were excellent and friendly"
Pros: "Great food. Excellent cleanliness"
Pros: "crew was professional, attentive and polite"
Cons: "No service. No drink, no snack, flight delayed. Missed last bus from airport to station at base where stationed. No happy"
Pros: "Nice seats. Ample leg room."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "It was short flight.. I slept good through."
Pros: "Direct flught, food is always delicious, crew is very attentive, and the in-flight TV seats have great entertainment."
Pros: "JAL has always provided exceptional value for money and top notch service."
Cons: "Have taken several JAL flight the last 1 year and this flight was significantly worse than the last few. Especially the meals."
Pros: "Great service and terrific vegan meals served. Facilities were clean and personnel were very helpful and provided terrific service to the passengers."
Pros: "Food Service Crew actually cares about you"
Pros: "Excellent flight and wonderful service!"
Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."
Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"
Pros: "Each seat had their own screens, and there was a small footrest available for each seat."
Cons: "The food was uncharacteristically bad for JAL. They served some sort of French chef's dish that was terrible. Normally, JAL has great food that I love to eat. The plane was also pretty old so it felt more cramped than usual, and the seats we uncomfortable."
Pros: "everything, the courtesy of the entire crew, the way they show care and respect and compassion to the passengers especially the seniors"
Cons: "flight delays"
Pros: "Everyone is polite, helpful, and the flight was quite pleasant."
Cons: "Website is difficult and it's impossible to get seated in advance next to traveling companions if they're booked separately. That was quite frustrating"
Pros: "The staff continued to check on the passengers throughout the flight. The food on the flight across the Pacific was excellent for airline food. Used trays did not stay in front of the passengers for a long time. They were removed in a very timely manner."
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."
Pros: "Staff- the ladies in flight were very friendly and courteous."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "Always a pleasure to fly on JAL. Despite a cramped seat in economy, the flight attendants made up for the uncomfortable seat. They are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Time went quickly."
Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."
Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "The excellent service and courteous staff."
Cons: "Three babies were crying throughout the flight which made the flight in uncomfortable. The flight attendants were spending a lot of time accommodating the babies and parents requests."
Pros: "I like the service of the Crew (very courteous, The Movies are new and my first time to view them, and the temperature and smell of the airplane is just right. Keep it up!"
Pros: "Food was really good!!! It was way"
Pros: "I felt well taken care of the whole time. When checking my bag, the attendant saw that I have a middle seat, and got me an exit row window, which allowed me to sleep. They accommodated a last-minute request for vegetarian meals. The flight felt like it took about half the time it actually did."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online without a JAL account."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "Best and consistent service."
Pros: "The crew on JAL is excellent. They get pleasure out of providing service to the passenger -- I was in business class."
Cons: "Business class seat on 787 is awful. Does not get to flat bed level. Really uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very friendly and polite. The seats in economy are generous and as comfortable as they could be in economy on a 10 hour flight. The two meals provided were pretty good for food served on an airplane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is very good. They have good service, safety, and customer care."
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight."
Pros: "Service was especially good. Very professional."
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew were accommodating. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "More elbow and leg room."
Pros: "Food, landing, departure. Wonderful aircraft"
Cons: "Was delayed several hours, had to change crews in Vancouver, and landed in Toronto long after my connecting flight had already left. Instead of being Boston at 7pm, I got back at 11am the next day"
Cons: "The flight did not wait for me due to the 1st flight delay."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and the airplane was modern and well appointed"
Cons: "I seemed to be surrounded by fidgeting people."
Pros: "Just the in-flight movies"
Cons: "It was a 787 but any or all room was taken into cramming more seats. Food was the worse I've ever had on a long distance flight. Bland and despicable. This is the worse international flight as far as room or food. Requested for an exit row seat but was told it was an additional $125 charge. Really that's how Air Canada is getting business by giving customers a very poor experience. A group of four us traveled on this trip and we had the same consensus and won't be recommending Air Canada."
Pros: "Like the selection of movies"
Cons: "food could be better"
Pros: "I appreciate the upgrade to the first class."
Cons: "Taking a bus for boarding"
Cons: "Would nice to have better and more movie choices"
Pros: "Nothing to complain"
Pros: "-Great food -Great room -Great people"
Cons: "-Movies were the same; not much to pick from"
Pros: "Plane was nice and clean. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Beware that baggage check closes 1 HOUR BEFORE TAKEOFF! They failed to mention this when I purchased tickets. Also we were unable to check in online (something wrong on the website), so we didn't know our boarding info. We also had a flight that was 30mins late. When we got to the check in counter the woman wouldn't do anything for us- wouldn't hold the flight, didn't attempt to help us catch our flight. We were told we could wait 48 hours for the next available seats. We signed up for that, and also waited on standby for 24 hours at Narita. Fortunately they were able to get us on a flight within 24 hours. We were not very happy that the key information that check in closes an hour before flights was not readily available or obvious. No emails or notices that I saw when scheduling flights. Just be aware. Everything else about the flight was fine."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"
Cons: "I don't remember anything from sleeping too much."
Pros: "The staff was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."
Cons: "Big delay, causing me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."
Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."
Pros: "The air crew was absolutely fabulous coming home. Couldn't of been nicer or kinder. Excellent work gang. Very much appreciated. This applies to Toronto to tokyo crew likewise. AC has very special people representing them. Thanks."
Cons: "Well, food was iffy. But provided, free and good intentions. I just gave it away to grateful seat mates."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"
Pros: "So glad we had Your Name as a movie selection and Eagle Huntress and all those weird short films that kept me going for a long time. I also appreciated the sake."
Cons: "Mainly that we took an extra hour by going around a volcano but I don't see how that could have been avoided."
Pros: "The on board entertainment was phenomenal. My kids LOVED that they could connect and play games with each other. The gate agents in narita were the sweetest people I've come across in a long time."
Cons: "Air Canada is pretty dang snobby for the most part. Im not sure when a rule was instituted that headphones can't be worn under 10000 feet, but my three children were targeted many times about their headsets... on the ear, boring kid headsets... and there were THREE adults around us wearing similar headsets that were not bothered. I am a single mother of three tired children and we were settling in for a long flight and I found the treatment very unnecessary and discriminatory. The food was pretty awful, lol. We ordered kids meals and none of my kids ate on the flight."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the number of in-flight entertainment options."
Cons: "There was an upset child that could not be calmed down."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Checkin process has to be SERIOUSLY reviewed and improved, especially for International travelers. Our boarding passes printed in Okinawa had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason, and we narrowly avoided a huge line to wait into because staff mistakenly made us wait in the WRONG lane. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
Pros: "Narita airport ground crew were very enthusiastic Air line crew were nice as well"
Cons: "Why Air canada sent me email that check in online but No information of eTA at all I didn't expect anything about eTA because They changed the system 5days before my booking without telling passengers so I applied eTA at check in counter of airgort They didn't accept my credit cards even after payment completely I still need to wait confirmation email that they take whithin 72hours I made my flight but I got 15minutes before flight time I ran air canada gate from departure gate with staff Air Canada was NOT kindness customers service except airport ground staff They helped me out to get my flight I am appreciate them"
Pros: "All announcements are made in 3 languages. The sit room in economy is bigger than Qantas and United"
Pros: "We had two different tickets, one on ANA and the other for Air Canada. The young lady at checkin linked them, checked our bags through Tokyo to Toronto AND got us boarding passes all the way. Without that help we would have missed our connection in Tokyo. Thanks SO much to ANA."
Pros: "I thought the overall service was very good. I like how well the crew communicated with the passengers and how smoothly everything went."
Cons: "The food (dinner: chicken with rice, breakfast: eggs) was ok, maybe even a little yummy, but could've been better (eggs where a bit too wet). I also felt like the movie selection was rather disappointing. A lot of not so great hollywood blockbusters."
Pros: "When we departed from Vancouver to Tokyo, we were pleasantly surprised by how courteous the airport staff and flight crew was, and by how roomy the seats were. Food wasn't outstanding, but better than other airlines we've been on for similar flights."
Cons: "Two of our three bags did not make it onto the plane, and the staff at Tokyo Narita, while apologetic, were not helpful. We had to press hard to get our bags back the next evening, instead of 2 days later. The onus was placed on us to keep receipts for replacement items that needed to be purchased in the interim, as well as to make the claim for reparation money on our return. Not even a complementary toiletry kit was offered, despite the fact that I reiterated that I had literally no clothes or toiletries at all in the one bag that arrived. Crew on our return flight was borderline rude, did not seem to take any care at all wheeling heavy carts down the aisles while people slept on a transpacific flight, banged them into my daughter many times."
Pros: "Everything except food."
Cons: "Food. It's edible but the quality of the food is very poor."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "They fed us several times."
Cons: "No wifi. The seats are really uncomfortable. Delays."
Pros: "The food is horrible and movies not a lot of selection"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "TV on back of seat. Free movies. Okay food"
Cons: "I had to wait 2 hours for my bags"
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Food not enough"
Pros: "-Staff was friendly and helpful. -The food is pretty good, and comes frequently enough -Cheap! -The flight was delayed, but at least Air Canada automatically rescheduled my next flight for me (which also ended up being delayed, but I'm happy this issue was resolved well before going through customs with a ticket for an airplane which had already begun boarding/departed)."
Cons: "-Air Canada baggage drop only open after 1pm -The aircraft was delayed, forcing my next flight from Toronto to have to be rescheduled. That flight was also delayed, so although I was supposed to be in Boston at 7:25, I arrived at around 11:25. All that extra time was spent waiting at Narita and Toronto. -Although I was seated next to a bathroom, I was at a window seat and thus had no good access to it for the whole 12 hour flight -- most of the time the way out was blocked by tray tables. Overall space was somewhat limited."
Pros: "Fast boarding and unboarding"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight and Air Canads charged me $300! They said thy had some 'peak days' fee (August) and a 'weekend' fee, which covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 3 day weekend??! Come on, what a scam. Just charge me the flat change fee not all these bullshit greedy add-ons."
Cons: "The customer service when our flight to Boston (connection) was atrotious. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "My seat on my first leg coming back to New Tork from Tokyo to Toronto."
Cons: "I booked my flight 8 months in advance and pre ordered a vegetarian meal a week before leaving for my trip. They "forgot" one of my meals (breakfast meal) on my return flight home. Hey also gave me a tuna sandwich for my snack, which means they also didn not have a vegetarian sandwich for me in between my dinner and breakfast meals. It was the first time every traveling overseas that they've made an error with my meal plan after flying on multiple airlines. My connection was a nightmare as I had to wait to go through security and customs which took over an hour and then my second flight was delayed. I will never fly through Canada again from the U.S. To another destination country."
Pros: "Tickets are cheap"
Cons: "Poor food, rude crews, small seats"
Pros: "Our attendant was great-- really funny and friendly guy !!"
Pros: "Staff in Tokyo were very nice. Couple flight attendants I felt were rude to some passengers."
Cons: "See above. Very uncomfortable seats. Food was not very good."
Cons: "The two meals served on board were cheap. Very small portions and cheap containers were used."
Cons: "Long line and not much organization during boarding"
Pros: "Nice to be able to recharge mobile devices while seated."
Cons: "I made a round trip to Japan from Boston with Air Canada, flying out in mid-June and returning in the beginning of July, and I was rather disappointed to find that the choice of movies was more or less the same both ways, at least I did not see much change in new releases. I was expecting new movies to be added on my return flight from Japan since the month has changed from June to July but I did not find new movies, so I just read on my iPad. It would have also been nice if there was an option for inflight WiFi access."
Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Pros: "Nice attentive crew"
Pros: "lie flat"
Cons: "cabin crew attentiveness"
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: "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: "Friendly staff and fast service."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight."
Pros: "I love everything and ANA is so care about every details for customers. Food is good, service is good ,and thank you for the great time."
Cons: "I really really really very very hate United. everything about UA. worst service, worst cost, and everything."
Pros: "Food was delicious. CAs were attentive."
Cons: "Fellow passengers’ no etiquette."
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."
Cons: "Domestic airline quality service, food and amenities. The fact the flight was acutally on a United plane and not ANA"
Cons: "Single-handedly some of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. I’m not sure if there’s any cushion but my rear end was killing me after 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Seat comfort and leg space"
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"
Cons: "Small old plane without any entertainment."
Pros: "Staff are so nice"
Cons: "Bad food selection"
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"
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"
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."
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: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Pros: "good entertainment through the united app"
Pros: "Being Asian, I consider myself lucky that my United flight wasn't overbooked or else I might have been forcibly removed from my seat and dragged out of the aircraft like a sack of potatoes with a bloody nose, and then United CEO adding insult to injury by apologizing to all the passengers in the flight EXCEPT me. Outrageous. I have flown almost 2 million miles on United but this ugly inexcusable incident gives me serious doubts about this airline's true character."
Pros: "Being up in the sky so cool."
Pros: "Stewardesses were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable."
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: "I asked if I could be moved out of a window seat into an aisle seat and they were able to do it immediately."
Cons: "The headphones had to be inserted into my ears and that is uncomfortable for me. I would have preferred the type that have large speakers outside of the ears."
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: "My son was under 18 and was flying alone. He missed flight because boarding was complete and he was 5 min late. His next flight was delayed and he didn't get back to Tucson untill 9 p.m. I, parent did not get to escort child to the gate because my pass did not have fast pass stamp. Very poor experience and airport staff was not helpful."
Pros: "I am surprised by the strong attitude and the rude way of treating the passengers by the personnel of the airline"
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: "The only thing that was enjoyable was the economy plus seat that I was in."
Cons: "On the flight from Tucson to Houston we experienced United's personal entertainment where you could use your iPad to watch movies. On the reverse flight, this flight that I'm reviewing, this amenity was not offered. As far as boring goes, the TSA in Houston was rude in the boarding sign said pre-boarding only so we were waiting and I almost missed the flight because the sign never changed."
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."
