Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."
Cons: "American airlines, No entartainment, no hi hello from the crew, no food, not even water... Funny guys, why the have flight people inside the plane :) domestic airlines are always joke compared to the world domestic or overseas...."
Pros: "The crew was great and entering and exiting the plane was quick."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable, but I feel like that is a comment for most planes that fly internationally."
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and informative of delays"
Cons: "This was American Airlines .. my Bags came out late even though i was in Biz Class"
Pros: "Crew was amazingly nice, friendly and very helpful..."
Cons: "The 767 business class seat from Tokyo to Jakarta could be better. Movies and other entertainment needs more variety. Not enough movies..."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "JAL LAX Ground staff. Not helpful."
Pros: "The food and legroom"
Cons: "More movies :)"
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Pros: "The window shades were so cool. Seat was small but fairly comfortable and I like the foot rest."
Cons: "No vegetarian options on the main meal menu"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "Professionalism with friendliness of the crew and the service provided."
Cons: "No issues with flight and boarding."
Pros: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "No complaints I was pleased"

Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "This terminal is not easy to find. You have to take bus from the main terminal."
Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."
Pros: "The stewardess of the flight from LA to Osaka was awesome , I don't remember her exactly name , I think she is older then other crew members working that day on economy class . She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter . The stewardess saw that and helping me a hand . I wish every airlines has someone like this crew member . Thank you so much for the awesome service on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"

The bathroom was always clean, they keep it up so well. there was even toothbrushes and paper cup! I really enjoyed it even though I was in economy."
Cons: "only limited number of movie."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Pros: "The level of service in Business Class was perfect. Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"

Pros: "The flight went well and the 3 meals were interesting. The staff was professional."
Cons: "It's kinda hard to sleep. Some of the food could taste a bit fresher and less microwaved."
Pros: "Everything was good, solid across the board. Nothing to not like. I especially liked the legroom in economy. Probably the best legroom I"ve had in economy."
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."

Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."

Pros: "They were very helpful in changing my seat to an aisle seat. The first meal was rather mediocre. The second one was good. The seats were spacious and comfortable and I did not feel claustrophobic."

Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth. Stewardesses were very helpful."
Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient. Crew was tirelessly courteous and respectful. The entertainment system had a good selection, but I've seen better. The food and drink service was excellent. Seats had charging jackass for phones. I'd fly with them again"

Cons: "Seats are very very narrow"
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"

Cons: "Full of passengers. Code Share!?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "It is a very long flight."
Cons: "The check-in at LAX. They form 2 different lines for Economy. The 1st line was lined with the people arriving first. Then the 2nd line started to fill later. But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"
Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."
Pros: "Customer service and food!"
Pros: "Service was great, food was decent. Bumpy ride though, plane felt "old"."
Cons: "Everything was good. Only thing I could say is the plane felt outdated."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye. Also I will be happy to fly ANA again, but I would not take a redeye flight on any airline unless I was in business or first class which I cannot reasonably afford at the moment."
Pros: "The service and the seats"
Pros: "The landing was very smooth. I have motion sickness and usually the landing gets me really sick. However I was okay for this one."
Pros: "This was a pleasant flight. The crew was very friendly and considering I almost missed my flight, due to my own negligence, the airline was amazing in making sure I made it."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to not like. It was a short and easy flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd. I felt like it was supposed to be gourmet, but just came off strange. I was wishing for something more straightforward."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with ANA airlines and it was great. First the staff where we checked in we're amazingly helpful! They spoke great English and ensured me and my husband sat together during our 15 hr flight to Vietnam.! They had so many options on new movies and music that helped pass the time. The food was very tasty as well as there snacks and drinks! The entire staff were helpful and appeared to enjoy their jobs. I will always fly with ANA when returning to ASIA."
Cons: "The seats seem small and are ok in comfort."
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that mostly everyone is bilingual there. It helped tremendously because I don't know Japanese."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "My Marine son and I traveled ANA from Okinawa to Hiroshima. We had to be bussed out to our plane but it was so worth it because we were on a Star Wars plane."
Cons: "My son and I had made separate reservations and they lost his. however he was able to get on the flight and they sat us together."
Pros: "On time，no delay. Food is good. Crew is concerned about passengers when I request to change to an aisle seat，though my request is not fulfilled. I still appreciate the crew's effort."
Pros: "Great plane. Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Really, everything was great."
Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"
Pros: "i will fill Hawaiian again"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "La atención !!! Excelente"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "my Husband said he felt cramped in the seats. He’s 6’2” and his knees nearly touched the seat in front of him."
Pros: "Complimentary items"
Cons: "Purchased headphones for a screen that didn’t work."
Pros: "I love the hospitality of Hawaiian Airlines...and they still serve meals!! It felt like the way airline travel used to be...Mahalo, Hawaiian Airlines! Your Aloha sets you apart from the rest."
Pros: "Nice crew. Easy trip."
Cons: "Check in process at HNL was horrible. Very confusion and complete chaos. Too many adds in the entertainment"
Pros: "Snack was welcome and staff was cordial."
Cons: "Tight quarters."
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food was terrible and my seat didn't recline which made for a very uncomfortable long trip"

Cons: "I did not like that the movies are not free"
Pros: "Fab crew . Plane was clean . Overall extremely positive experience"
Cons: "Menu could be a little more diverse ."

Pros: "Beverages and water, Snacks and a meal (with an adult beverage) All for FREE"
Cons: "I noticed one ladies chair in the front, her monitor wasn't holding up correctly."
Pros: "I loved the whole experience. These days you never get food anymore, and with Hawaiian you do! And it's delish!"
Pros: "I liked the general flight and the crew."
Cons: "There was not an option to watch movies. I am vegetarian and there were no vegetarian food options."
Pros: "From the agents to the flight crew and even the Captain , everybody was friendly and attentive. The dinner was just the right size and was very tasty."
Pros: "great basic intra-island transport"
Pros: "I flew first class on this trip so it was an awesome experience, especially with their seats that allow you to lay down."
Pros: "I liked that we could all sit together, and it feel like we have enough room."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, I was not thrilled with having to pay money for each kid to watch a movie, and then didn't feel as f I could justify spending the money on my husband and I as well, so we didn't watch anything. If each seat has a tv screen, why not have a complimentary in flight movie or two, and then charge if people want to watch something else?"
Cons: "I wish there was an option to watch a movie. The screens were off the whole time and no tv's in the seat. I saw an ipad was an option but more i had to spend. Overall you guys are smooth and inviting as a company"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable but it was a short flight"
Pros: "Nice seats, and staff and good food."
Cons: "Plane should be equipped with wifi."
Pros: "Smooth flight, clean aircraft"
Cons: "Poor attitude of male flight attendant, came across as not really caring about the needs of passengers, plane was dated - could not look at snack menu on touch screen, no duty free items or catalog despite being advertised."
Cons: "Unacceptable flight sage mentioned. For a flight from KOA to LIH through HNL, other travelers Andy self were told there was no plane change and not to worry about the KOA to HNL flight landing AFTER the HNL to LIH fight started boarding. What a lie., requiring a dead run across the HNl terminal. Poor flying - this flight was my second and third '"two bounce"landings."
Pros: "The employees and crew were incredibly helpful and nice. This alone means we will likely fly Hawaiian again. Also, the plane was large enough for a 2x4x2 seat arrangement so my family of four was able to sit next to each other (versus the common 3x3 on other domestic flights)."
Cons: "Food options were very limited, meal food was borderline terrible and the in-flight "free" entertainment was non-existent. Since everyone around us (including us) had iPads and tablets, we weren't that concerned about a lack of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The seats and space were great. The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The plane was very hot and uncomfortable. When asked to turn the a/c temperature down, it took about 20 minutes to become comfortable, but then about an hour later it started getting warm again."
Pros: "I missed the Kahului flight so my second leg started in Honolulu. Pilot aborted the take off half way down the runway. Said there was an indication light that said the brakes had heated up and it would be 15 minutes to let them cool. Then said we would have go back to gate, saying it would be a little longer. These "little longer" efforts went on for just short of 3 hours! When we got in on the other end the gate was unavailable and we were forced to wait another hour on the ground there. 9 FREAKING hours in that plane next to gal and her toddler in her lap... bummer for me, but this poor gal missed her connection to CLEVELAND... gave me a perspective of what REALLY SUCKS."
Pros: "Same as the other flight"
Pros: "The fact the a meal is provided in coach, is certainly a bonus for the airline. The flight crew is friendly and moves quickly."
Cons: "For a flight that is gaurenteed to be 6 hrs or more, I think Hawaiian should consider some options of entertainment beyond a limited number of iPads at a charge. I'm okay paying for something like wifi or an iPad, but maybe some heads up when buying a ticket. My Japan Air flight from HI to Japan had great wifi, so don't tell me that over ocean flights don't work. I think they ought to treat the flight as an international flight when it comes to beverage and snacks..."
Cons: "Pay for entertainmen"
Cons: "Hawaiian is proud to be one of few airlines still offering free food. If this is the result, I suggest they follow suit and have paid meals of higher quality. The meals we had were basically inedible, even when you are hungry. The lack of an entertainment system for cross pacific flights was also very surprising. Yes, you can rent an iPad (for more $). But even then, the selection of entertainment was very poor."
Pros: "Service was great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome and very helpful"
Cons: "I had to wait 3 hours for my interisland flight. That wasn't cool. But otherwise it was great"
Pros: "My favorite airline to fly with, very clean. Staff was great!"
Cons: "Upgrade to comfort seats is not worth the cost."
Pros: "My kids liked the cup of noodle served on the plane!"
Cons: "We flew on Hawaiian almost 3 weeks before from Asia to Hawaii. We were surprised that most of the movies and tv viewing were exactly the same. I wish you would have had more Korean movies and tv shows. The seats are too close together for any real comfort."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and quick"
Cons: "Food was disappointing, it was also cold in the cabin."
Cons: "boarding a bit chaotic"
Pros: "Staff were thoughtful and attentive at all times"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful as needed. We arrived early and were kept apprised of the difficulty in getting a gate upon arrival."
Cons: "The food was terrible. There was no movies on a 5.5 hour flight although they do advertise one on the website."
Pros: "The flight itself, and the onboard crew."
Cons: "Poor signage and no assistance to print baggage claim tickets. Poor signage at the gates, confused passengers at gate 8, no place to sit in the shade. Other passengers taking up several seats with their bags. No personnel in the secured gate area until time to board. No assistance available to help someone with knee problems climb the stairs to board."
Pros: "Jennifer at the luggage department was exceptional made a bad experience somewhat tolerable"
Cons: "After boarding the plane and settling in, we were told to disembark because of mechanical issues. We then waited in the lobby sitting on the ground while they prepared another plan for us to depart. After a hour-and-a-half delay we finally departed but when we landed at LAX I discovered that they had lost my luggage instead of arriving at 9:40 and being on my way home, it is now 1 o'clock in the morning and I'm still not home because I had to fill out forms and deal with missing luggage. NOT HAPPY WITH MY EXPERIENCE!"
Pros: "Meals are complementary (they pride themselves on being the only US airline that still serves complementary meals) and they had some complementary wine. Staff are friendly and my flights arrived either on time or early."
Cons: "The meals, though free, were pretty mediocre, but then again I guess all airplane food is. The complementary wine was also pretty bad. My sister is lactose intolerant, and they didn't have a dairy-free option for her. They sold snacks, blankets, and headphones but no longer take cash for them. Also I thought blankets used to be free? If you wanted to watch a movie or TV, you had to pay something like $8."
Cons: "No advanced facilitation of handicapped passengers online or at boarding. Preboarding announcement did not allow handicapoed passengers time to preboard"
Pros: "The airline staff was great. The on board food service a treat."
Cons: "The ground transportation signage is poor. The check in lines confusing and not organized at all. Providing the seat TV's and requiring payment for plain TV is greedy."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."
Cons: "It was my first time frying with Cathay Pacific the flight was okay, food wasn't that good. I don't want to compare with the other, my opinion should have more variety or snack between meals since 15 hours flight. Thank you for listening!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great too!"
Cons: "Shopping items available."
Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."
Cons: "Unprofessional boarding stuff in jfk ,not helpful & one of them was really rude.but cabin crew are nice . I will never recommend to anyone & I don’t think so I will travel again cathey pacific airlines.thanks"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then cancelled NO COMMUNICATION WHATSOEVER as to what was going on. We finally got rebooked in another flight on a Chinese airline at 2:30am so we had to stay at jfk for a total of about 24 hours with no compensation for our time and troubles. Horrible. Experience!"
Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."
Pros: "Crew was really good and the seating was quite okay"
Cons: "Seating distance"
Pros: "The food was amazing, and the cabin crews were all very nice people. I would love to use Cathay Pacific in my next trip. Also, I loved that they provide a lot of diverse movies from all over the world, along with good music lists."
Cons: "Honestly i think there are not much space for each passenger."
Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Pros: "Food& Beverage :)"
Pros: "Airport checkin crew sucked, in-flight crew were fantastic!!"
Cons: "They made me check my carry on for a flight that was MAYBE 50% full... ANd If the ground handlers were actually awake when we landed in Vancouver... took 43 minutes for the first 5 bags to come out.... and another 7 minutes before anymore... WTAF!??"
Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."
Pros: "Really good flight, no complaints here. Friendly and efficient staff."
Cons: "Seats unconfertabale"
Pros: "Handing our menus in economy class was a nice touch. Service on board was very attentive."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Less beverage served. No coffee or tea was offered."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seat on up position are too straight"
Pros: "Service was great and friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between."
Pros: "Cathay is a good Asian airline, and if you compare it to any American-based airlines, Cathay is exceptional. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful. Seats and food on economy are pretty good, as far as economy goes. Entertainment system is updated and offers a good variety of options."
Cons: "They are a bit strict on carry on luggage weight but not that big of a deal."
Pros: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."
Cons: "Unable to do online check in, have to waste time to line up in the airport. Not all people need visa to enter a country, this is rediculous that I couldn’t proceed to check in online because I do not have visa to enter my own country. Rediculous"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!"
Pros: "This flight was 16 hours long was very very cold for about 5 to 6 hours needed jackets extra blankets very uncomfortable for that time frame"
Cons: "I loved everything except for the freezing temperatures for 5 to 6 hours"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and so was the flight."
Cons: "The food, I don't eat meat and would like some other options. For such a long flight there should definitely be more leg room and agility to recline"
Pros: "the service"
Cons: "food no to much"
Pros: "Great service and food as always. I sat in business class and the seats and tv entertainment center are so old now. Time for an upgrade"
Pros: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."
Cons: "My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room."
Pros: "The flight went okay, but my bag didn’t make it and still hasn’t been found."
Cons: "They asked me to change my seat, but when we asked to sit together with my husband, they were not able to accommodate it"
Pros: "Food and attentive staff"
Cons: "... Service was awful during the flight, and the second flight was delay for long time ...."
Cons: "You have to be there 3hrs before the flight to guarantee they won't resell your seat. I was at the terminal an hour prior at 9am when there was no line to check in or even at security but they turned me away. I rescheduled my flight and had to pay a lot extra to do so. I stayed at the airport to make sure I wouldn't miss it and the crew doesn't even start setting up until an hour prior... they don't start boarding until 30 minutes prior.... so they 100% sold my seat and then charged me to rebook it. They turned me away when I could have been at the gate 50 minutes prior, well before boarding"
Pros: "The service was very nice and the ice cream with meals was a nice touch"
Cons: "Plane was a bit dirty - there were big dirt streaks on the ceiling above me, and I saw more on the ceiling on the other side of the plane as well."
Pros: "Route and travel time. The food taste good."
Cons: "Bathrooms need to be cleaned in between flights; meal didn't have any condiments included ; they don't provide a toiletry bag with basics of toothbrush and socks; airplane needs to be CLEANED.. we found dental floss and empty containers inside the seat pocket."
Cons: "Mediocre online check in experience! Their website does not accept payments for "upgrading" to an exit row seat. At the time of check in the only seat left available was an exit row so I could not proceed. Also, their airplanes are not equipped with Wi-Fi - quite unfortunate when you're flying 16 hrs from HK to NYC!"
Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Very little leg room"
Pros: "No issues with airline just other passengers. Plane was older model but very clean. Noticed flight attendants cleaning washrooms frequently. Meals were timely and quite tasty. Even though did not partake, liked how there were snacks available."
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized (no zones or group boarding, just everyone getting in line at once), but still departed on time."
Pros: "the staff very friendly and helpfull and always there to answer questions they handle some nasty lady in front of us very politely and settle the situation"
Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"
Pros: "They are nice, let space, shopping options unpaired. Cathay attendants, are they trained to be as nice or are they born like that in Hong Kong?"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Boarded with delay"
Pros: "The flights overall were great. The crew were very professional and personable from when I checked in to when the plane landed. Definitely will be using Cathay Pacific again"
Cons: "The food was not very good, whatever bit I ate caused me a bit of a stomach ache. I was able to munch on some snacks. Please have some more fruit options available."
Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."
Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."
Pros: "The ground steward in LAX attended to our needs. He was cheerful and made us feel welcome."
Cons: "The service on both flights, from LAX to Taipei and from Taipei to Manila. The flight attendants need to smile more often. They look so serious, especially when you ask them for something."
Cons: "Seats we’re tight on second flight. They had an odd foot rest protruding.....?"
Pros: "The diabetic meals"
Cons: "Headphones and more snacks."
Cons: "I paid for a window seat through your website. When I arrived at the gate I saw that I had a middle seat. China airlines stated that they do not honor outside booking seat request. It was very uncomfortable for 16 hours."
Pros: "Vegan meal was okay. Check in swift and good. Too crowded. Seats too tight."
Cons: "Hard to ask for more spacious seating but I will."
Pros: "Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result."
Cons: "Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride."
Cons: "Dinner served 1130 pm breakfast after 12 hrs peanut snack."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. But you should really add more child movies and more fun games."
Cons: "I didn't like the food no offense but terrible."
Cons: "flight attendant don't speak english clearly!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was awesome."
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all"
Pros: "cheap ticket buf it comes with a cost-- a seat on the end rear section of the plane!"
Cons: "the cheap ticket that you reserved on line puts you at the tail portion of the plane where you will have to endure a 14 hours of turbulence. food is not impressive! the plane left lax so late that we have to run to our connecting gate in taipei!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight attendants, great attentiveness. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat cushions were VERY hard."
Pros: "Overall, it wasn't a bad experience but it wasn't fantastic."
Cons: "The crew barely smiled."
Pros: "Food was pretty good (for airplane food), staff was friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable"
Pros: "Flight landed on-time and was smooth. Staff was helpful and profession. My request for vegetarian meals failed (might have been my fault) and the staff really went out of their way to make sure I got vegetarian meals anyway. And the vegetarian meals were excellent. Good experience on a long flight."
Pros: "Good price."
Cons: "Late 90 minutes fly. The service is not good."
Pros: "The food, service, and seats were all great in economy. I typically fly UA and China Airline's entertainment system and seat comfort are definitely on par on this 777 when compared to UA's 787."
Cons: "I didn't like that we didn't have a free row since our flight was packed - but that's not really much of a negative."
Pros: "it was a pretty quiet flight. a little turbulent but ok. pilots did a good job."
Cons: "the food was not that good. ive had better on the sametrip before."
Cons: "One of the crew members was a little rude. I was sleeping and was forced to wake up and pull my seat back all the way forward so the person behind me could eat."
Pros: "The economy class seats are actually some of the best to sleep in!"
Pros: "Chair comfort (but no location) , food and partially the crew."
Cons: "Terrible procedure of getting the BORDING pass. I had to walk very long distance from arrival to gate 155 to find a CIA desk to get my boarding pass. The worst seat on the plane was assigned to me and CiA procedure didn't give me any chance for a normal seat. I had the bad chance to be served by a HIPER team of two flight attendants that rised my blood pressure. Their egarness to be productive and their rush were NOT justified, especially on such a long flight; low professionalizm."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was okay. Changing planes in Taipei was enlivened by their funky themed lounges."
Cons: "The first meal was horrible. Things improved somewhat after that but it made a lasting impression."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful! Very friendly, attentive and courteous! Food was good."
Pros: "The interior was clean and spacious. Overall pretty comfortable flight. About average in-flight entertainment system."
Cons: "They gave me a tray without the main entree on it for breakfast and said they'd come back. Gave everyone in front of and behind me their food as far as I could tell. Then they never came back. I wasn't particularly hungry and neither was my girlfriend who was next to me, so we split her food, but still, pretty weak."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient with great customer service"
Cons: "Food was awful. Would bring my own food on future flights"
Pros: "Nice crew, decent food"
Cons: "Very narrow seats, sitting between two mothers with crying infants"
Pros: "Ground crew facilitated the flow of the very long line, making sure it's moving along. The flight crew were helpful in finding a spot for your carry on and were always there when I needed assistance. Food was good but the Taipei-Manila flight, there was only one choice of meal."
Pros: "The comfortability of the ride was great. Seats were comfortable, easy to sleep in."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The headphones weren't comfortable at all and the movies weren't easy to hear at all."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and nice"
Cons: "They make me pay an extra fee of $150 for coming 1 hours before departure time."
Pros: "Service and flight was mediocre and flight time was longer than I thought."
Cons: "Economy chair doesn't recline at all. It was a minial space compare other airline's international flight."
Pros: "Airplanes are fairly new. Everything seemed fairly clean. Movie choices were good. The staff was really accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Narrow seats in Economy. With every move, I had to be careful not to disturb the person next to me. I am a fairly skinny guy. This was quite challenging when I tried to eat. It was too easy to trigger the flight-attendant call button by accident with the touch screen. The icon is not really obvious and it is close to the screen on and off icon."
Pros: "Flight was great only issue was that I couldn't take my bag on the flight. It was said to weigh to much but others had heavy bags and had them on the flight."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Pros: "comfort of premium economy seating in 777 ER300"
Cons: "Food service not that good."
Pros: "I had to make an emergency trip back home ASAP, and China Airlines had the best schedule. It was my first time flying with them, and I was not sure what to expect. Some quick research about safety and traveler experiences - indicated it would be a reasonably safe and comfortable flight. It was - good seats, smooth takeoff and landing, diligent attendants, and meal service was decent (for example - on par with KLM, better presentation than Air India, not as good as Qatar or ANA). I would consider flying with them again."
Cons: "Lunch meal was a rice/chicken/vegetable/thick sauce micture. Decent, but I was a bit put-off by the soupy rice. Perhaps because I had the congee for the breakfast meal, and had had enough of rice porridge texture."
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."
Pros: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "One of the beat flying experiences ever. China Airlines does cust at a high level"
Cons: "Nothing to report bad"
Pros: "Food was good. The screen of the first flight LAX-TPE) was big and new."
Cons: "If the crew needs more rest please give them enough turnaround and breaks. They all look tired and unhappy. That's something the company has to fix, not the consumer to bear. The guy next to me didn't put his bag in the overhead cabinet, so it kept poking me or lie on my feet the entire flight. I'm sure this is something the airline would be able to enforce for security reasons."
Pros: "Price was good. The plane was quiet and clean."
Cons: "Food was not very good compared to competitors. I fly a lot and I'm positive these were the smallest seats I've ever had. Understand it's economy, but for a 12 hr. flight it's difficult. Also, check-in line took almost 2 hrs, giving most of us 30 min to go through security and find the boarding gate."
Pros: "Staff was good & food was always on time."
Cons: "I didn't like how the flight felt too congested. Especially on a 13hr flight. There was no self checking in or online check-in available so I had to wait in a long line to check-in. The most negative part about this flight is the 10hr delay in Taiwan. Sleeping in the airport for 10hrs isn't easy and fun especially after a 13hr flight. Overall, not a good experience as I hoped it would be."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No customer service people to talk to about seating. No one ever answer the telephone"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly, very little patience. Overall just the way they served us as passages. Had better crew service in other flights"
Cons: "Something must be done about how far a person can recline their seats. I'm a '6 with long legs, the flight to Taipei was 13 hours. The guy in front of me reclined his seat all the way down. Flight crew was helpless."
Cons: "For a long flight the seat is uncomfortable, it needs to be more comfy and size could be better."
Pros: "Like the staff on board. Very nice."
Cons: "Too hot! No individual air vents!! Need that on those planes. Also could have had better leg room Could have been nice to upgrade to economy plus even at the last minute Line at boarding was horrible. Very long and 2hr wait. Almost missed plane trying to get to security even after showing up 2 hrs before flight"
Pros: "Flight was great. Everything went smoothly, staff was great and very helpful. No complaints at all"
