Pros: "The flight attendant was awesome. She was extremely friendly and very welcoming."

Cons: "The head phone jacks were loose so watching a movie was extremely difficult. The aisle is so small you can’t even walk down it without bumping people who are seated. It seemed like none of the crew wanted to be there."
Pros: "Check in was very good. The seats can be more space."
Cons: "I think the breakfast should be better."
Pros: "Crew was as good as can be and helpful during boarding."
Cons: "Chair seat belts weren’t long enough for me I’m 6’2 290 I know I’m not the average size but it wouldn’t hurt to add a little length."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and personable. Boarding and seating went smoothly. The flights all departed and landed on time. The cookies were tasty."
Cons: "The seats are pretty small, not much leg or elbow room. The coffee could have tasted better."
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. I am an elite flier and was put in an n uncomfortable middle seat with no choice."
Cons: "Seat should with choice."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, they made sure we were comfortable and would ask if there was anything we needed."

Cons: "I & all passengers would have received accurate, timely information related to the 4 hour delay"
Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Some crew does a little rough service but not but. Probably too busy for them."
Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin temp, great in flight entertainment, and excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing actually. It was a very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great"
Cons: "wish there was more legroom"
Pros: "Many movies too choose from."
Cons: "Not enough space and food was horrible"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Food wash pretty good"
Pros: "They made a long trip comfortable with an excellent attitude."
Pros: "There are three meals during the trip."
Cons: "Not at this time."
Pros: "I got to japan"
Cons: "I paid for Japan airlines because they are a clean airline and service is superior. Watch the fine print. My seat was dirty crumbs and leftovers left in the pouch and folding tray."
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."
Pros: "The bathrooms were clean compared with other airlines."
Cons: "We selected seats together as a couple but the seats on the flight were separated. Customer service could not help but asked us to make arrangement with the person between us. The same seating arrangement happened on our return flight 18 days later. Once again was told nothing could be done. I really do not know why both flights the seat assigment were wrong when selected basic on the aircraft configuration. The airline is attempt to make the passenger to pay more for seats."
Cons: "The last cabin was very packed and almost there was no available seat. However, the front cabin was not crowded but a cabin attendant didn’t let me move to other seat at the front cabin even though I was sick and coughing a lot."
Pros: "This was the best in flight crew I’ve experienced in economy class. They were efficient, friendly & humorous! Keep up the great work! They made flying in not so comfortable seats bearable."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great. Also the staff were a huge help, especially the gate attendant who helped to get our four seats together"

Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Watch movies, charge your phone, play games, and snack away after meals. Had an excellent flight. I have to say that the crew made the experience very relaxing. Departure and arrival were as stated, maybe a few minutes over, but it is not like JAL can control the weather. Great experience overall!"
Cons: "It would be nice to get complimentary wifi access, even if it's for a total usage time of 30 minutes, to text/email loved ones about departure and arrival. Still have good access options."
Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "The Boarding Was Fast And Easy, The Flight Was Even Early And On Time! The Crew Was Very Nice."
Cons: "There Was No Entertainment For A Almost 2 Hr Flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great crew, lots of food & drink options, great screens with excellent selection of movies & games."
Cons: "Long flight. We did not realize that we needed to claim baggage and then re-check it at Japan Airlines for a domestic flight. Airport personnel were understanding and helpful, so no crisis."
Pros: "My seat changed by a crew when I boarded on the plane and I thought that was rude but then I realized that all the row seats were empty. The newest airplane was clean, nice and had a cool entertainment system. All the crews were very friendly, nice and outstanding customer service especially one of the elder crews (Asian man) was very attentive and caring about all passengers. I hope he will be on the board for my return."
Cons: "No so far."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Cons: "We took off with low fuel diverted to DFW then on to lax with no water on board Completely unsat So much for a non-stop flight"
Cons: "I didn't know it was American Airlines. I would have bought a different ticket had I known it wasn't JAL."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"
"The check in process was kind of slow considering that I had already checked in and just needed to drop off my bag. Everything else was great! I love flying with the Japanese. Their customer service is always astounding."
"Everyone was really helpfull. I hurt my leg and had a hard time walking. The staff was really nice during bording and made sure I was ok. Thank you!"

Cons: "Seats were pretty bad. For a 10 hour flight, rigid, not reclining. Crew was curt. Not rude but curt. Food was terrible. Asked for Indian vegetarian meal - but got an Asian vegetarian meal that had no taste whatsoever. If they can do a Muslim meal, I don't know why they can't do Indian Vegetarian."

Pros: "Food was decent. Loved the movie options"

Cons: "United delayed 6 hours and dropped from from connecting flight not accommodating me"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I had to pay an extra $100 for my wife and I to sit in exit row seating. I just don’t understand why airlines don’t provide proper leg room. I understand profitability, but it is certainly is uncomfortable for me at 6’5”."
Cons: "CAs of UA were not kind as usual. It was UA, so I didn't expect nice service from first."
Pros: "very comfortable able to move up to first class due to premier access since silver. which was nice"
Pros: "got moved up to first class since I'm premier Access. silver"

Pros: "Food tasted great, pilot did great job, bathroom easily available, cabin service reasonable."
Cons: "Unable to sleep, too uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent, and the flight was even better. Fort Myers is an excellent airport."
Cons: "I thought I booked with ANA, but it was actually United. Plane and crew all United. I expected domestic flight would be United but international flight would be ANA. Many people didn’t have seats until last minutes, no explanations, desk clerk was not helpful at all and had attitudes. And Food was terrible!!!"
Pros: "Staff pleasant but inattentive"
Cons: "I'm so glad my work paid for this ticket. This was by far the worst first class experience I've had. Mediocre and very limited amount of food. WiFi was broken. Was delayed 3h.poir selection of movies. Old seats without leg rests. This was business class at best but with a first class price. Not good."
Pros: "economy seats"
Cons: "non veg option for snack. all other food was good option"
Cons: "Kayak's third party CS company gives me the ANA schedule while in fact I have to check in with United Airlines. Because of this, I was not able to check in on line in San Diego. Please ensure that Kayak & their affiliate are well coordinated with the information they send out to customers."
Pros: "economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight."
Cons: "they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet."
Cons: "Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access."
Pros: "Convience o flying from tvc instead of driving to grr or det"
Cons: "My wife and I had to sit separately"
Pros: "The flight attendant was positive."
Cons: "Baggage check in was very rude. I handed my boarding pass and passport first and the mouthy black man yelled that my bag should be placed first. I was making sure first that I didn't need to go to a different area for bag check. United needs to teach their workers some manners."
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."
Pros: "I like the United app for ease of checkin"
Cons: "Flying itself is a terrible experience. Cramped seats, food is nonexistent, no wifi"
Pros: "At boarding there were delays which the boarding personnel updated as they had information. After boarding flight crew passed out water while we waited on the tarmac for hours while a maintenance issue was reviewed. Safety protocols that had a engine issue looked at on the ground prior to putting us in the air. Curry chicken was good."
Cons: "Several issues that caused this flight to be late. Part of the issue was the plane was not available to be in the gate on time. The longest delay was on the tarmac for over 2 hours as an engine was analyzed. Does this suggest need for more regular maintenance? I don't know. Given the delays I think United could have done more in recognition of the delay to its customers on the flight such as not charging for some of the services they normally charge for like wifi access and such. As it was I was delayed on both legs of my trip by a minimum of an hour. United should do better."
Pros: "How can you overbook a flight?! Thank god someone gave up their seat for me or I would have missed my connecting flight in Chicago. I paid $600 and was told because I'm basic economy I wasn't guarenteed a seat. Terrible!! And then I couldn't use my backpack (small school sized) as my personal bag and had to pay the $25 to check it! Come on United."
Pros: "Friendly help.good coffee. Big plane"
Pros: "The flight experience was as usual. There was nothing out of the ordinary for me. The airline was good and the crew was great. Economy sitting on any long flight is never excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment was okay. It was one of the older model aircraft, so no seat selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and unboarding"
Cons: "Not getting a confirmation email or check-in reminder. No working wifi or power docks on plane (marketed as having in-seat entertainment). Moved to the back of the plane with no recline and destroying my back after telling them I need at least minimal recline. Out of most food options upon being served last and given a soggy undressed chicken wrap for 12.00. Finally, the gate dock was not able to connect with the plane upon arrival yeilding a 30 minute delay at the gate. Unapologetic crew simply ready to turn onto the next flight. This is why I don't fly united."
Pros: "Quick boarding/deplaning and super friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Everything was horrible"
Cons: "The plane left 40 minutes late making my connecting flight a 15 minute run to get to the next plane as they were already boarded and waiting to close the door"
Cons: "One of the male crew was not too friendly. He never smiled. The other attendant was more pleasant."
Cons: "USB charger ports would be great. The planes seemed a bit old."
Pros: "From Chicago to Atlanta my flight was great! It was much more spacious and just an overall enjoyable trip."
Cons: "My flight from Atlanta to Chicago was limited in space, uncomfortable, and overall not the best."
Pros: "Short lflight"
Cons: "The food was not really edible on this flight. The seats are also quite uncomfortable- I'm not a particularly large person, and yet they were uncomfortably stiff."
Pros: "They worked hard to try and get people to their connecting flights since there was a delay"
Cons: "They were overbooked They delayed my flight by about 20-30 minutes"
Cons: "There was a mechanical problem, causing a 1.5 hour delay."
Pros: "seats that were not full"
Cons: "wi fi was down. which meant NO entertainment except for the lame Ninja Turtles movie"
