Cons: "Connection time at Narita is too long"

Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "Nothing! Excellent flight!"
Pros: "The crew is outstanding. A girl two seats away from me barfed and two attendants were there immediately with a bag, cleaning wipes, etc. They are very friendly and patient with passengers. The next best part was the comfort. I got a good amount of sleep on my nine-hour flight."
Cons: "The movie selection and meals were not bad, but I've had better on other airlines."
Pros: "Tv audio didn’t work. They forgot to movie me to another seat. I paid for Wi-Fi and it didn’t work with Netflix or hbo go. Luggage was lost too"

Pros: "The level of care and attention that was given to my comfort during the flight was extraordinary. Also the economy was much better than any economy i've ever come to expect from other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding I didn't know at first where to go to get to the gate. Having to exit and then re-enter the airport was a pain and further complicated my boarding. But that was not JAL's fault and is on SFO."
Pros: "even though middle seat, there was enough leg room to rest comfortably."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff with excellent amenities ie: check in, seat space, food quality, movies to watch, music, ...etc."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about here. Both trips to Tokyo, Japan--to and from Japan have been enjoyable and drama free."
Pros: "Courteous cabin crews, must be from Japanese culture."
Cons: "On Feb.16, 2018 JL745 Narita to Mnl, flight was delayed, though it was constantly announced but not the reason why. Other than that, I will always fly JAL whenever possible."
Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"

Pros: "Excellent service from flight attendants and crew. food and snacks were excellent. seating,movies and experience was above my expectations. no problems at all"
Pros: "customer service spoke English"

Pros: "Premium comfort seats are worth it especially on longer flights; totally recommend. Plum wine is a great add to menu"
Cons: "You need to call to reserve seat. Then was told I could only upgrade at the airport and not on the phone, risking to loose the few available premium comfort seats. Old movies. Poor red wine. Food still just okay."
Pros: "JAL is a great airline. Love flying on them. great crew. roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Pros: "Excellent crew,service and great food."

Pros: "The customer service overall was really good."
Cons: "The food always messes up my stomach, where the whole day after I can’t eat anything"
Pros: "Crews are very polite and willing. They During the entire 13 hours flight, they continued serving drinks and snacks. I have not seen such services on the other airlines."
Cons: "The movies were not the first run ones."
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Cons: "Food can be better."
Pros: "JAL work ethics are what the Japanese excel at, so there's not much to complain about."
Cons: "The same as most other airlines, the seat width and pitch has been getting smaller. Even with seat by the aisle, my elbow sometimes bumped inadvertently a wayward flight attendant."

Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"

Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "First time fly with JAL, friendly flight attendants, excellent seat space, would fly with JAL again."
Pros: "delicious meals with good drink selections. cabin crews were nice and have smiles on them all time. I saw crew provided excellent services to a young mom traveled with 1 kid and 1 infant with her mom on board throughout the whole flight which were impressive."
Cons: "I believe the air line cut down snacks between meals (my flight were 13 hours) which was little disappointed. Restrooms were not as clean as before although they were way better than other airlines. Crew's English speaking still need improvement. Please keep up the good works! I will flight JAL again soon."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too! Super nice check in agent as well."

Cons: "difficulty in figuring out how to use the controls on the entertainment remote"
Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."
Cons: "The bed was uncomfortable, in that the arm rests disappear when you lay flat the bed. A petty thing since at least it was business class, but without taking pillows from empty seats it was uncomfortable when lying on one's side and nowhere to put arms."
Pros: "We had a 4 hour delay due to maintenance, so many of us missed connecting flights in Tokyo. But the airline put us up in a hotel and gave us meals, so I had a nice bonus day to see the city. The flight itself was very pleasant, with the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen on a long flight and plenty of food and drink."
Pros: "Politeness of staff, cleanliness, promptness and efficiency."
Pros: "This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay."
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. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks."

Pros: "Flight attendants are really kind and patient."

Pros: "On time. Nice 787 Dreamliner. Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "I asked for a small water bottle (early flight from Tokyo to Jkt they gave a small water bottle) and it seems they mase a big deal to give me one and I traveled with my 2,5 yo and I tried to keep her hydrate since she has problem with dryness ans her skin"

Pros: "Shortest duration"
Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."

Cons: "Seat would not recline. That should be standard. My back was sore after trip."
Cons: "Missed my flight over a misscommunication on getting to the airport. Thete was not sufficient time to arrive more than an hour early due to the fact Gimpo airport opens at 6am and the flight was at 7:45. When I arrived I was not allowed to check in or board and no one wanted to help me find out what to do. They suggested I call my ticketing agent. Thankfully they were helpful but they mentioned the ANA SHOULD have helped me find the next available flight but the representative kept repeating it was not her job. Finally she looked and said there were no available flights and tried to push me to buy another ticket through another company. My ticketing agent helped after she heard what happened and rebooked my flight for the next day. Hopefully everything goes smoothly but ANA staff at Gimpo were a bit of a nightmare to deal with"
Cons: "Food took 3 hrs to get out. Movie selection was limited compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Very kind flight attendants with amazing service!"

Pros: "Great service, I'd definitely fly again."
Pros: "As always, the Japanese customer service is wonderful - I have no complaints in that department!"
Cons: "The boarding process is pretty annoying....they do not board until minutes before the flight time and we still had to take a bus to the actual plane. We took off late (which, personally, at this point, I had just been on a 14 hour flight plus the 2 hours layover) - a delay just added to the exhaustion. Also, the plane was very old and very hot...even though it was only a one hour flight, it was very uncomfortable and outdated."
Cons: "Wifi should be free"
Cons: "Sitting on the back rows , when I was served my food the lady said there was no more options I had to take what was left, meaning if I wanted the pasta I would Not get it because unfortunately I got a sit at the back of the airplane, but I paid the same amount of money for the ticket as the person sitting 20 rows in front of me It is outrageous"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient the crew was polite, professional and helpful, seats were comfortable, and the food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Smooth operations, friendly crew, clean plane, free booze in coach!"

Pros: "I liked that they feed us good food, and we were feed several times. We were also offered several drinks, and all the flight attendants were extremely nice. We would fly Ana airways all the time if given the chance. Seats were very comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "I liked everything, everything was excellent"
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice lighting. Not too bright"
Cons: "The overhead light is too far up and when I turn on the light it's lightning up more than just my seat. Other people beside me are sleeping and it's too bright to turn on the light."

Cons: "No sioda (Coke or 7-Up), only Apple Juice or water, No snack!"
