Pros: "Kind people, quality service. Very helpful. On time."
Cons: "Had trouble hearing instructions from flight crew since volume of the speakers was low."
Pros: "While many other airlines are cutting down on their service quality and amount of food on their flights, Japan Airlines has done the reverse: offer excellent food and great service at every tier, including economy. We took a flight from NY to Tokyo and felt like it was one of the best long haul flights we have taken."
Pros: "We traveled with our 1.5 year old and JAL was incredibly accommodating and made our trip very enjoyable. They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was smooth and provided impeccable service."
Pros: "Compensated with lounge pass"
Cons: "Very poor check in around Visa situation"
Pros: "I was fed two meals and snacks/drinks in between for a 14 hour flight. Love the little TV in front of the seat and the blanket and pillow. Crew was very sweet. Overall positive and good first international flight. Would choose Japan Airlines again! <3"
Cons: "Only a little hard to sleep upright in economy class seat. I wasn't able to fall fully asleep."
Pros: "Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Polite friendly and attentive Staff. From checking in to inflight."
Pros: "JAL is great!"
Cons: "Cold food"
Cons: "You mean the flight that never happened? The one that was suppose to fly out at 12:50 on 1/6/18 delayed until 17:25 (with acceptable communication the first delay) but then later delayed till 00:10 after I’ve already arrived at the airport early for the 17:25 departure. The screens with arrivals and departures posted that Checkin was open but there was no JAL staff to answer questions. Then getting an update “maybe” the 00:10 flight is cancelled? What is maybe cancelled and JALs phone messege still said the flight would depart at 00:10. So I go back to JFK because after all “maybe” isnt a definitive and according to all the direct JAL sources the flight is suppose to depart, I get to JFK the second time only to be given a printout saying the flight is cancelled with no rebooking, and to call for assistance. The same number is been calling for hours trying to get answers. coukdnt reschedules because I’m calling outside of business hours! I spent $200 on cab rides going back and forth to JFK to go nowhere, get no apology, no new flight booking, and no reimbursement for transportation."
Pros: "The staff were awesome. The facilities were good."
Pros: "Nice staff."
Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable especially for long distance flights - barely reclining. Seat selection very painful - can do it online, have to call up to 48h before glight with roaming fees if already abroad. Food okay - nothing Japanese. Movie selection could be richer and better."
Pros: "Service and staff was good"
Cons: "Seats small there was a terrible smell like a dead rat that kept coming through and it was intermittently hot"

Pros: "The food was excellent and the stewardesses were extremely attentive and helpful."
Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"

Pros: "Flight crew are very courteous and helpful. Comfortable seats and better leg room space in the economy section."
Cons: "We were delayed and stayed in the plane for 3 hours and flight was almost cancelled. Could not really understand why there was a delay or why it would have been cancelled."

Pros: "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."

Pros: "Sitting in the Economy section, I was lucky to get the two seats next to me empty so i was able to stretch and sleep. Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Economy Class seats are uncomfortable for long haul. Wish they could do something about it. Some of us dislike rice crackers and peanuts as welcome snacks so a different option could be nice."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "The movie selection, my electrical outlet didn't work and they took my phone away from me to charge it in economy plus but did not allow me to come with my phone. The food wasn't very good either."
Cons: "The DC China Embassy web site clearly states that a valid APEC Business Card can be used in lieu of a Chinese visa. In spite of this I was denied boarding by JAL. It turns out the system is not fully in place, and eventually I was issued a 10 year multiple entry visa by way of apology. JAL did not waive cancellation fee, and I suffered considerable economic damages."
Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."

Cons: "Late boarding"
Pros: "Good and polite crew"

Cons: "Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable.

Pros: "Customer service was pretty solid."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, excellent entertainment system (although lack of movie choices this time around), crew is attentive as usual, and the food is not bad for airplane food. Smooth traveling."
Cons: "If anything, it was simply the lack of movie choices but I guess it wasn't a good year for movies."

Cons: "The entertainment choices for English speakers was a bit limited."
Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"
Cons: "The in flights entertainment was a little limiting to me- but with the great service by crew- it didn't matter so much . But a little more wide variety could go a long way - or more new releases"
Pros: "Don't cheap out on your flights to Japan because this ANA flight from New York/JFK to Haneda was the correct way to go. Japanese-style hospitality, respect and quality of service (which is beyond the heavens) shows from check-in to landing (and even post-landing.) The in-flight meals, inspired by Japanese recipes of the Japanese destination or origin, were finely made - that goes even for Economy Class. When there was a delay that was ultimately out of their control, they made things right with post-landing arrangements. Never take any other country's airline when flying into Japan - always always ALWAYS take ANA whenever you can. (Avoid codeshares, too!!)"

Pros: "They had good movies and music of my choice."
Cons: "One flight attendant out of all others showed arrogant behaviors and facial expression. I was sort of disappointed because I chose ANA because of a reputation of their service and modesty embedded in the Japanese culture but not this time. I should have written down her name."
Pros: "Most of all are good."

Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"

Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."

Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."
Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"

Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"
Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"
Pros: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"
Cons: "What’s there not to like about SQ"

Pros: "The service, seats, food, drinks and bed!"
Cons: "I reserved a window seat on this site but was given a middle row instead when I checked in."

Cons: "SMALL SPACE FOR FEET IN BUS. CLASS AND HEAD REST NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE"
Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"
Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"

Pros: "The checkin was straight forward. The staff were very pleasant as always. The entertainment system worked."
Cons: "It was an 8 our overnight flight to another time zone where we had a full day ahead of us so we needed all the sleep we could get but instead we were fed around midnight. Lights went out for about two hours, it seemed, before we were told to put our chairs upright for the person behind us so they could serve another meal. We arrived about 10am completely shattered."
Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."
Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."

Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Outstanding crew! Super attentive in my section.. I had seat 43E."

Cons: "Six empty seats in the “emergency row” I was not feeling well and needed the extra space.5 hours into the 13 hr long haul to Taipei, I felt like I was going to hyperventilate, they charged me $120. Bucks for the privilege. Kosher meal was unbeatable."
Pros: "Couldn't get the seat we requested, Airlines still use dial up Credit card machine to process, unable to process C.C payment after using 3 different C.C Crew instead blamed me and ask me to use ATM to get Cash !"
Pros: "Smooth and easy"
Cons: "Check in location not clear in the beginning."

Pros: "The air line reported 2 of my luggages as delayed and I still have not heard news on my 3rd missing luggage"
Cons: "How can u loose a luggage"
Cons: "I had a bad flight, we had 16 hrs delay because technical breakdown. I can understand it, but everybody on the flight were really upset with china airline attitude. All passengers must sit on the plane for 3 hours before we went out of the plane, at that time the flight attendants and crew leave without an explanation, We didnt know what happnened!!!!! And during 16 hrs delay in Sanfransico Airport, we didnt have hotel for rest, we really tired without sleep. I dont know how to explain my thinking about chine airline attitiude, really upset with their way about problem solving. I just can say that i will never flight with china airline again in the future..."
Pros: "The food they served was very good."
Pros: "Entertainment device is updated and good"
Cons: "Staff at SFO was a little bit loud and mean when they asked the customers to line up—like in zone 1/2 boarding process."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."
Pros: "I like the boarding because they went by zone. I also like the food and drink that was provided."
Cons: "I didn't like the restroom it was too small to go number 2 in."
Pros: "traveling with a child on long haul CI's family couch is the top choice."
Cons: "none."
Pros: "Flight is on time. Crew team is polite and smiling. Boarding is smooth."
Cons: "Food is so so. As always , there is many carry on items in Asia flights and not enough space to put."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Everything was bad! The seat were too tight , the aisle were narrow and no service from the flight attendant!"
Pros: "Super nice service from the crew on the flight. And the young woman at the check-in counter in San Francisco was terrifically friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was just slightly delayed leaving in both San Francisco and Taipei. But the headwinds (certainly no fault of China Airlines!) made us 45 minutes late in Taipei, making us a little anxious about making connections, especially when we saw the long line to x-ray baggage going from one terminal to the next."
Cons: "Seats are bad"
Cons: "They waited for another flight to come in I think because they could not sell enough seats so they doubled up one of their flights and made us wait for 12 hours very sad miss my connecting flight and further flights and friends at destination turned into a horrible experience but on my way home now hopefully it won't be so bad going hole"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful flight attendants!"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for the meals... No snacks available for in-flight purchases... No menu of beverages available..."
Pros: "The flight was at the end of Thanksgiving weekend and was completely full, but the check-in, boarding, and in-flight service were all efficient and attentive. Food was pretty good, and the economy fares were very competitive. First time on CA, and would definitely use them again."
Cons: "One rude gate agent at SFO named Lisa."
Pros: "Good staff, new planes, polite and efficient"
Pros: "People"
Cons: "Lack of movie selection"
Cons: "Food selection could better. Also hotter (warmed Or cooked more)"
Cons: "Great services on board"
Pros: "better food"
Pros: "Lovely gracious Staff."
Cons: "One negative employee. Not so comfortable seat on new plane."
Pros: "Over all it was a great experience. I dropped my boarding pass from tapi to bkk while I was at SFO the crew trade me down and gave me my boarding pass , saving me lots of hassle . I was impressed for over all service."
Cons: "The boarding wasn’t done according to seating manner at SFO . Didn’t look he that ."
Cons: "Food Crew"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and new looking. Customer service from all employees was terrific."
Cons: "On both China Airlines flights, the wifi system did not allow my phone to access the link to purchase access. The food options were just OK."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant and did their job well."
Cons: "Despite checking in 2hrs or more before boarding, the China Airlines airport agent seated my wife and I in different rows without asking us what our seating preferences were. On the connecting 2hr flight from TPE to KIX we were seated 10 rows away from each other. We trusted the agent to be smart and professional and let him choose our seats not caring too much other than to be seated together and was grossly disappointed. He spent a good deal chatting with his female coworker when he should've done his job better. We won't be flying China Airlines in the future and will pay more for better service."
Pros: "over all good"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "good leg room, excellent food, service in Economy better than I've had in some other first class."
Cons: "A350 seat cushions are a little short for us tall folks."
Pros: "Flight was delayed which made me lose my connecting flight to austin. At the counter I was told that they had rescheduled but that I was late. I was late because customs took long and the flight from Taipei was 30 minutes late. So it's not like I was wasting time. I did not appreciate that the blame was placed on me in the way the counter people communicated with me. I noticed that the counter woman, and the supervisor did not speak to me at all. Not even to say "let me find out" or "sorry for the inconvenience" but both did speak to other customers that were of Asian Descent. They communicated both in English and Chinese. The young woman that booked the flight for me (different one from counter woman) was decent and attentive. Sherry who was the third woman I dealt with when I needed to sort the baggage issue was very attentive even explaining to the supervisor why It was the second time I was back at their offices. She went out of her way to make sure I saw my bags delivered to the UA luggage. But again, I am very disappointed and can't help to notice that other passengers received basic cordial treatment when I was blatantly ignored."
Pros: "Individual movies screens for each passenger with unlimited free movies/music/etc. Leg rests that pop out & seats that recline more than most. Very nice crew. Food was pretty good."
Pros: "Staff and Crew were nice to passengers."
Cons: "No English subtitles for the movies on board. Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding at SFO was confusing since attendance gave wrong information so that we kept sitting to wait for our turn. And it ended up kind of disordering. Airline needs to improve this small process while customers waited for so long to board."
Pros: "Crew changed my seat after finding out my chair was broken"
Cons: "my chair was broken and wouldn't lean back. i felt really thirsty a lot of the plane ride"
Cons: "Food and seats were mediocre at best. Two of the flight attendants that we had the displeasure to experience appeared irritated and when asked for a glass of water we had to wait 30 minutes (after asking three times). On top of that, once we arrived to Tokyo they lost our luggage. We kept phoning the Tokyo desk, but then the airline went on strike and our calls were left unanswered. Japan Airlines, which handles all baggage for all carriers in and out of Narita couldn't do anything either. When they were finally operational I phoned again for two more days with no offer of compensation for additional clothing that we had to buy. Finally on the 7th day they indicated they found the luggage and it never left SF!"
Pros: "Service, Seat, food, and movies."
Cons: "having to get up and ask for more beverages"
Pros: "The crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food needs a little bit of variety"
Pros: "I loved the food service and good customer service overall"

Cons: "Passenger seating next to me (I was sitting in an aisle on a 3-seat row, economy plus) kept on leaning towards me all the time. I had to "create" of sort of barrier between the two of us with a couple of pillows. A lady sitting in the row in front of me - a 50-something y/o woman with husband and 3 kids keep on reclining her seat to the point that I was barely a couple of inches from the top of her head, even as I was eating. I had to forcefully push back ti get some room."

Pros: "Amazing hospitality. Flight attendants were so friendly. The meals and gifts made for a very pleasant flight experience"
Pros: "The dinner food was decent (breakfast was subpar)."
Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."
Pros: "The timing is so accurate as well they were so fast getting everything done."
