Plane got too warm when flying to Narita. Plane was older model.
I got scammed. The flight I booked did not exist. The flight was suspended more than a month ago & I did not get any notices or e-mails. When I arrived the airport there is no flight, no people working. I'm trying to get a refund, but they said they are not sure I can get full refund. I booked the partnered-agent called Chatdeal. You guys need to drop these people from listing on Kayak, they are completely scammers.
Pros: "It was a great service overall!"
Cons: "Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen."
Cons: "More movie choices. More substantial second meal."
Pros: "The crew and food both are amazing."
Cons: "PA announcements could have been louder. I also had difficulty understanding when I could hear the English words."
Pros: "Food was amazing and stewardess courtesy to passengers."
Pros: "Two choices of meal, friendlier staff, better head cushion. Props to JAL."
Pros: "I loved the Haagen daz ice cream. Loved that they have USB ports."

Pros: "Food was great"

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: "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."
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"

Cons: "more movie options!"
Pros: "The service was great. Food was delicious,"
Cons: "It was a bit too warm in the aircraft."
Pros: "Loved everything including entertainment selection and all the snacks left out as self-serve throughout the flight. Left and arrived on time from JFK to Narita"
Cons: "I'm picky about food and preferred the food to Tokyo on ANA to JAL. However, I take some responsibility for not making a special request pre-flight. I will do so for trip home."
Pros: "Clean and nice staff"
Cons: "Seats separated from my friend for 14hrs."
Pros: "Awesome experience, nothing like any other. Will fly again."

Pros: "Food served was actually pretty good."

Pros: "Excellent overall, crew is very attentive and courteous. Food is better than most airlines Every thing is fine. Boarding is orderly. Crew very courteous. Movie selection is good.. We have been flying JAL for a few times and never regret"
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: "JAL has excellent service. The flight attendants are very responsive and always there to help. The boarding and everything was smooth."
Pros: "If I needed anything, they were on top of it. The food was very good for airplane food."
Cons: "They kept the cabin a little warm, and at 6' 4" the seats are a bit small."
Pros: "The food (Japanese) clearly was a league of its own. Service was prompt, attentive yet discreet."

Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"
Pros: "Service N crew n entertainment."
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."
Everything is good and the food is delicious. All the staff are very friendly and always ready to help. Will definitely fly with ANA again.
I'm reall satisfied with ANA.
Pros: "Food, seat comfort, service"
Pros: "The plane was ghetto and old and there was only one tiny restroom for the entire economy class."
Cons: "A newer plane with more restrooms would be great."
Pros: "Seat was broken would not lock in upright position. Seat entertainment screen was also malfunctioning in the on position."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were not really confortable and the TV menu did not have enough English shows or new movies, even old ones within the menu would've been great. Also - this probably has nothing to do with the company but- there were passengers who took their shoes, even their socks out! It was disgusting"
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"
Pros: "boarding was super easy. the airline crew members are very polite and accommodating to any request or concern you might have."

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight because the flight NH9 wasn't fully booked, I used my next seat too. Also, the crews are generally better then usual, more smile. Food also better than last severity trips."
Cons: "Even so, food can be better. I want more western drama on entertainment."
Pros: "Polite, attentive, and amiable staff show they take pride in their top notch service. Entertainment options (movies, documentaries, travel guides) on screen are also a huge plus."

Pros: "Service, entertainment , drinks, everything! Very good!"
Pros: "Staff Many empty seats"

Cons: "We could not check in online. This was frustrating and we do not know why?"
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience. I enjoyed the food, the flight attendants were very nice, and I enjoyed the amenities as well."
Cons: "The flight back was amazing. The trip from Chicago to PHILIPPINES was good as well, though the plane was real small on the way to Manila."
Cons: "It was too hot in the plane. The plane lacked individual cooling control. We mentioned how warm it was to the flight attendant. It did cool down momentarily, but remained uncomfortably hot the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "Customer service was pretty solid."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Stewardess always came back with what they promised to bring. Premium economy seating was very good."
Cons: "Food could be better. Entertainment was somewhat limited. The older plane on one leg meant no wifi and no noise-cancelling headset"
Pros: "Attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, I was especially impressed when the flight attendants would intermittently clean up the restrooms- something that definitely doesn't happen on US airlines. Good food as well."

Pros: "Great service. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "The stewardess constantly walked the aisle looking to assist the passengers...no disappearing act like one finds on other airlines. I was in business class, so the food was very tasty."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Check in process was horrible at TKS, extremely unknowledgeable gate agents, took 6 people and 1.5 hours to check and pay for bags."
Pros: "I slept most of the way home so didn`t use the entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."
Pros: "Almost everthiny good job keep it up, excellent !"
Pros: "I flew from ORD to Tokyo and DEL to Tokyo. The flight was clean food was really good. What I like the most about ANA is the leg space in basic economy. The flight from Delhi to Tokyo was brand new 787-9 :)."
Cons: "The only gripe for me would be the movie selection. There are not that many choices."
Pros: "Cabin crews are efficient and very polite. Film selection is fine."
Cons: "Food is boring. I always find myself hungry after flight, as I couldn't find much to eat so left a lot. Maybe I should bring my own food from next time..."
Pros: "Great star wars vessel. Very attentive staffs and flight attendants."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Bumpy ride and no info of what was going on. A passenger next to me took his pants off and was sitting with his underwear. He did put a blanket after. Very annoying!"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to delays from first flight"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the staff. The overall service was very nice!!"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all. Normally I wouldn't care but it was a 12 1/2 hour trip. There wasn't a lot of good, recent movie releases. On other airlines there was more to choose from that were more recent releases. The food wasn't very good. It had all fish choices or beef tongue. I understand having an Asian meal, but maybe should be a more popular meal with different choices than a more eclectic menu. I noticed even the child's meal was not very kid friendly."
Pros: "Everything accept the food selection."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had more selection of food, it's a minor issue and what do you expect if you know you're flying on a Japan airline. I just wish they would have a little more selection gear toward American food. :-)"
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service"
Pros: "The service was great, complimentary movie selection was fantastic."
Cons: "I requested strict vegetarian meals in advance, was given items that violated this request. Further, the items which were in accordance with my dietary restrictions were generally not satisfying."
Pros: "I like the service and professionalism being showed by all staffs of the ANA airlines and highly recommendable to my relatives and friends who are planning to have a vacation in Japan or in any other places in the world..they are very punctual with the schedules .I was so happy with my experience with ANA Airlines. Thank you very much for the wonderful experience we had."
Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Cons: "The service and was"

Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with excellent service."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Pros: "Service, attentiveness, food."
Cons: "lack of ability to pay to upgrade even though there was plenty of empty business class. (Almost all seats were available)"

Pros: "Not much really."
Cons: "The air craft was old, I was sitting on the exit row and the screen was loose and the window on the exit row was leaking. The food was bad and the service was poor. The flight attendant kept on forcing things on me rather than asking me what I wanted."
Pros: "The service and the food were amazing!"
Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "On time departures Good entertainment options Could charge my electronics"
Cons: "Food was ok Boarding was somewhat disorganized"
Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "The food and seats were very comfy."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."

Pros: "One of the best cabin crew. Curtious, friendly, helpful and we're always available in the cabin."

Pros: "Lufthansa always great. Comfortable seats, good and safe service."
Pros: "The flight crew & the flight itself was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours. Not only did I miss my connecting flight, but I also missed my rescheduled flight. I had to wait another 7 hours in the airport waiting for a flight. And due to this I missed an important meeting."
Cons: "Late, missed connection"
Pros: "Great crew, food, entertainment and drinks."
Cons: "Only thing that could be improved is comfort. They provide a small pillow and blanket, but even with those, it is very difficult to sleep."
Cons: "On our layover in Munich, we were at our gate, then noticed about 30 minutes prior to boarding that they’d moved us to another gate quite far away, so we hurried to the new gate, only to discover the change was an error, and we had to run back to our original gate. Made it, but annoyed."
Pros: "Large entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort less than desirable. Not enough sitting space. Also my luggage was left behind in Munich."
Cons: "The problem is with KAYAK. KAYAK booked us a carrier light ticket and failed to inform us at the time of the booking that it was a tariff without checked in baggage that was being offered. Fortunately, LUFTHANSA informed us of this fact at checkin and we purchased carriage with checked in baggage. This makes me wary of buying tickets through KAYAK in the future."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times and we were kept waiting at the gate without knowing when exactly we will leave."
Pros: "The efficiency and kindness of the flight attendants made the trip enjoyable. The water service really helped with dehydration. Also, the food was EXCELLENT, which you don't often hear on a flight. My seat was comfortable and the movie and television selections was great. Will ABSOLUTELY fly with them again!"
Pros: "Flight Delayed from EWR. But the connecting flight to mumbai was not allowed to boarded. Since the gate closed even though the flight was still there. On top of it, the flight that was provided as an alternative was again with a stopover, so now, we had two stop over and extra 14 hours of layover time. Did not offer hotel stay or transit visa. was stuck in airport. Very much disappointed with Lufthansa. Will never take this flight nor will allow my friends and family to take one ever again."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew was excellent! Very impressed"
Pros: "Clean, modern place. Professional staff."
Pros: "Just fine."
Cons: "My eyes got so dry that I couldn't see very well for a few hours after landing, everything was hazy and glowing, like I had a film on my eyes. I've been on way longer flights before and I've never experienced this, it was scary."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pros: "They boarded back of aircraft first. They gave wine on demand. They were smiling and helpful and greeted us on entry and exit. The little things matter!"

Pros: "Screen monitor and flight map"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and it was kinda cramped"
Pros: "Excellent staff and organized service. Entertainment syst m standard but worked well without problems."

Pros: "Clean plan, attentive attendants, flight was delayed 15 minutes but notified us promptly."
Pros: "Seat comfort, easy of boarding."
Pros: "Baggage handling, efficiency overall"
Cons: "Small legroom in economy"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, we all had a bottle of water at our seats, we were immediately served drinks and snacks, the meals were really nice (haven't had this in years). Plane crew were friendly and helpful. Kids loved the entertainment selection - it kept them occupied throughout the flight in spite of their young age (3yrs and 5 yrs)."
Cons: "Baby kept most of the cabin up for three hours of a six-and-half hour flight. I know this isn't Lufthansa's fault, but they did little to help. Also, business class seats are too hard!"
Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"
Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "The crew/ service was great & clean bathrooms on the flight"
Cons: "Terrible food quality. Zero leg space. The Newark terminal is ancient & fire alarm went off for over 20min before boarding."
Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"
Cons: "Lufthansa was GROSSLY late to depart,for no apparent reason, causing me to miss my connection! Lufthansa then arranged for the cheapest and LATEST flight available as an alternate connection causing me to miss a very important family event.. Very disappointed.."
Cons: "i missed this connection was put on a united flight and was bumped down from business to economy. no apologies, no effort whatsoever to make up"
Pros: "Flight was on time and uneventful. Plane was a bit cool and most passengers were required to put their jackets back on. No complaints otherwise."
Cons: "Newark is not my preferred airport. We had to leave secure area between flights. Upon reentry, security stations were undermanned and wait times were long."
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Pros: "Wine was nice. Great selection of movies. The crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food was a bit bland. And there was no salt or pepper to be found."
Cons: "Seats were beyond uncomfortable unless someone was shorter than 5 feet tall. Zero amenities. I know it was the economy section but our 4 tickets were close to $6000.00. A few perks would have been appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."
Pros: "Such a nice plane. So clean and new and professional staff."
Cons: "Boarding a little disorganized. But it was the airports fault I think."
Pros: "New airplane"
Cons: "The front seat has sharp edges at knee level. Wen the front passenger recline his seat it killed my knees."
Pros: "Great entertainment package. IFE was great, large screen, with a variety of choices. Lavatories are very spacious on A340-600 (lower deck)"
Cons: "The amount of space at the rear of the aircraft is incredibly limited. I was sitting in row 57 and due to the narrowing of the fuselage toward the back, the seats are narrower, some without arm rests and people going to the back of the aircraft keep bumping into seated passengers. Leg room as incredibly limited. This is not acceptable for a major airline. The terminal at Newark is rather old and not the cleanest. Due to the lack of clear communication, most passenger were confused at to the order of boarding."
Pros: "I was bumped up to Economy Plus which gave me lots of leg room on a half empty flight. New plane was great"
Cons: "You lost my baggage! I checked it over to domestic in Newark, but despite the 3.5 hour turnaround time you still managed to leave my bags, and those of several other people on my flight to CVG, in Newark"
Pros: "Food was good, boarding was easy, transfer in Munich very manageable"
Cons: "The seats are unusually narrow and there is no place to put your book and iPad in the seat pocket in front of you. Also, very unremarkable service"
Pros: "it was much more comfortable on the second part of the flight"
Pros: "In my experience Lufthansa is almost always on time and very professional in how they manage their flights."
Pros: "we were treated like royalty"
Cons: "Seats have too little legroom. Even pushed to back in seat, my knees pushed seat in front of me. Not on person seemed to watch entertainment, because of the program you have to sign up for. Seems like basic tv or so could be free, even if there is charge for movies."
Pros: "Comfy new seats Plenty to watch on the free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Liked all"
Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work part of the flight"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"
Pros: "The in-flight crew was nice and accommodating, to be expected after the delay. The entertainment system had many movies that were neither dubbed into nor subtitled in English or any other language I understood (such as Goodbye, Lenin, a film I love and have seen with subtitles). The gluten-free meal was bland, perhaps to be expected but as it was my first time ordering one, I wouldn't have known what to expect."
Cons: "Worst of all was the cold, unconcerned manner of a young woman who did most of the attending the crowd of delayed passengers at the counter. I don't ask for abject deference, but she seemed unmoved by our plight and was cold bordering on unpleasant when dealing with different passengers' delay dilemmas. This young woman was American of African descent; for the record, I am as well, which made me think she just took a dislike to me, but she didn't appear to be much nicer to anyone else and just could not be bothered in the midst of the nearly three-hour delay, a major hassle for everyone including the airline. For what it's worth, her name starts with an N. (I didn't have my contacts on) Another major fail was the Lufthansa crew's assurance ahead of the flight that we would be rebooked on later flights after missing our connections. This promise was made rather breezily; clearly those making it in New York didn't have to deal with the business end of a tired, disgruntled crowd trying to cope with the fallout of missed connections. Once we got to Frankfurt, there was one lady holding a sign aloft; the sign bore the names of presumably first or business class passengers who would be shuttled to their new gates. That lady impatiently waved people from the steerage (aka economy) mob away and towards three overwhelmed Lufthansa agents helping people locate their new flights and gates. The gentleman who helped me sent me, and, I'm guessing, quite a few of my hapless fellow travellers, to gate A13 to collect my new boarding pass. Not knowing the airport at all, I followed a set of signs that took me through a monorail to an access area that - surprise! - I could not enter with my outdated boarding pass. Finally an airport official helped the group of A13-bound passengers to the Lufthansa check-in counter, where yet another Lufthansa agent disappointed in his dealing of the situation. Had I not stated that I refused to queue up or to countenance my long-suffering fellow passengers doing so, he would have had us wait in line, including one young woman about to miss a second flight. The agent at the desk was very friendly, but all in all I found the airline's responsiveness to the evolving situations of its steerage passengers (a significant chunk of its income) a great disappointment. I don't expect I'll give the airline a second chance. There's too much good service to be had from Arabian Gulf-based airlines at comparable fares."
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Pros: "Keep it up with great services. !! Thank you!"
Pros: "Was on time! Not croweded!"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. Missed the connection flight."
Pros: "calming environment, finnish style"
Cons: "on the flight to new york i got a game sandwich. i like that. brining finnish culture to us. but on the way from new york to helsinki i got a boring bagel."
Cons: "The plane landed much later than expected, and I missed my connecting flight to Moscow. While I was given another boarding pass, I had to have another layover in St. Petersburg, and fly to Moscow from there. The flight turned out to be much longer, and much more exhausting. My overall experience was unpleasant."
Pros: "Food was all right because the flight didn't depart from Finland and catering was from a non-Finnish supplier. Hurrah!"
Cons: "Stewardesses announced that only chicken is available, regardless of any special meal requests (vegetarian etc..). Eventually special meals were located, but not before passengers specifically demanding for them. WTF. Finnair generously pours you a half an glass of wine with meal, for anything more you have to pay for. Supposedly you can buy snacks with money, but there were no menus or pricelists to be found in the seat pockets. Touchscreen functions were barely working on my entertainment screen, the remote control didn't work altogether. WIFI didn't work at all."
Cons: "We missed are connecting flight"
Cons: "Late change gate number. Automatic info-terminal can't read my boarding pass. Not possibility enter flight number ( AY6 - only digits, no letters) Please make WiFi low speed free. Please be atention: more than half passengers russian - there no any muvy russian audio or subtitle on TV Don't show fly with short (30min) transfering"
Pros: "I liked service very much."
Cons: "Seats were too closely spaced. Like a coffin. Will probably not fly Finnair unless the price is next to nothing."
Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Cons: "Usually, in the morning, a light breakfast is served. This time, there was none."
Pros: "I liked everything. Pleasant flight."
Cons: "Not that I didn't like, only some comments: Flight was 40 min late at arrival due to delayed start from JFK, the plane had to wait on runway before take-off. Not a problem for me as HEL was my final destination."
Cons: "I wish I had known this was an American Airlines flight. They're the worst. Delays all the time (including this flight), crew who couldn't care less, uncomfortable seats, general mediocrity. Next time tell your consumers what you're getting into!"
Pros: "That I made it safely to my destination. Updates from the cockpit were appreciated. Plane was nearly empty, so I was able to stretch out over severa seats."
Cons: "I haven't heard good things about American Airlines, and now I know why. Probably the oldest plane in the fleet. Entertainment was 2-3 fold down screens from the ceiling. I can't remember the last time I flew on a transatlantic fight with no entertainment- nearly 20 years ago I'm sure. Airplane food is never great, but food options were worse than normal. American Airlines customer service at JFK was horrendous, resulting in several passengers missing their flight. (I was there if 4 hours to spare, but had to wait 1hr+ to have my birthdate changed in the system.)"
Cons: "American Airlines charged me 100.00 dollars for 1 extra luggage, ridiculous! !!!! Also we took off 1 hour late without any notice..... Flight to Europe with AA sucks..."
Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Very cramped"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."
Pros: "Power in every seat. Great headphones. Solid in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"
Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"
Pros: "Lenght of flight"
Cons: "Babies crying :("
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were noisy, walking back and forth, so it was hard to rest, more like stomping. Was not pleased with flight attendant who served me, was kinda cocky and not friendly, which spoiled the customer service experience. Not enough leg room, cramped. Wish they had decaf tea. Other than that we arrived safely, so I'm very appreciative."
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "Crew was generally friendly. Leg room in coach was ok. The price was good."
Cons: "Kayak sent misleading check in announcements. Namely, telling us to check in with Finnair, where it would not let us check in on line and no one answered the phone. We ultimately checked in with American, which was operating the flight. Not a customer friendly process. American should be embarrassed to serve meals. We think people will eat the gruel because they paid for it. No choice of entertainment. How 1990s. If this is the new American Airlines Lord help us."
Pros: "Smooth flight given the tough turbulence."
Cons: "American Airlines caterers do not stock Tea on flight to London, UK (major up-roar). Staff was pretty grouchy."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."
Pros: "Liked the upgrade seat"
Cons: "Food was aweful both the dinner and the breakfast the following morning ."
Pros: "Got a very nice vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Finnai leased this plane from EuroAtlantic. The seats were uncomfortable, entertainment system didn't work, crew was careless... It was a light from horrow! Plane was at least 20 years old!"
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Pros: "Great flight. Check in had to be done manually but the agents were plentiful and it was quick and easy. Great movie selection on the flight and the chicken and rice tasted great as well. Would recommend this airline."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "the crew was good and helpful. They should be paid more."
Cons: "ALL my print outs say FINNAIR, your asking about my FINNAIR flight, all says FINNAIR, so I go to the airport and wait 30 precious minutes at the FINNAIR counter to check in ( there was no self check in computers) only to be told Ah, you are not on FINNAIR, you are on American and must go to the American counter. I was given my itinerary back and rushed to American and began to self check in only to realize in the rush the woman had not given me back my passport. So, I rushed back to get it, loosing more time, only to find she had given it to another agent at another American counter but not at the check in area, and it took more time to find out who had my passport. I made my flight, but if ALL says FINNAIR, how am I supposed to know that I should instead be looking at fine print to discover which airline I am actually flying on and waste time!!!!!!! It should state CLEARLY that I need to check in at the American counter. In flight entertainment was really poor in comparison to other airlines on international flights."
Pros: "No one was traveling, airport calm, preTSE always nice This wasa codeshare--actuallyAA"
Cons: "no comp,lints"
Pros: "I had tsa which started the trip in a wonderful way! On time. Captain seemed nice and competent. The crew nice too."
Cons: "I flew American not finnair. Very confusing. I paid 65$ for a better seat. It was further forward but not worth the money and the others around me I don't think they paid extra. No movies. Couldn't see the screen."
Cons: "Small seats and no in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment on flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was very unorganized, no lines people were cutting each other, planes are old and dirty. Food and service was just ok."
Pros: "The entertainment was really up to date and easily accessible"
Cons: "My flight was delayed but I was able to catch my connection flight. (After running through the Madrid airport). Then when I arrived in Berlin I come to find out my bags were still in Madrid."
Cons: "Sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Apparently something was wrong with the plane. And then we waited for a mani tenancy log to get signed. Typical American Airlines garbage."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Seats too narrow"
