Cons: "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."
Cons: "I feel like this is Japan Airlines’s chance to present some great actual Japanese food in flight and instead it was a tuna melt and macaroni salad. Just saying."
Cons: "Kiosk, bag service, One World Integration"
Pros: "the Level of service and the Japanese culture was evident at every moment of this flight. Our boarding process was delayed by almost an hour, and it felt like every 5-10 minutes we had an update as to what was going on and why, then passports were checked early, and service was top notch."
Cons: "In my perfect world, we would have updates way in advance if there are mechanical or airport issues but that is a slim to none chance. That is about it. Everything else was amazing!"
Pros: "The crew provided excellent service and the food is really great."

Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."

Pros: "Flight attendants are all nice, polite and always smile. Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Waited for one and a half hrs before the plane took off, almost an hr went by then they announced some minor problem with engine. Good reason but they had a/c on so cold all these times. Also I would appreciate coffee or some drink while waiting...I guess that's not possible in this case."
Pros: "Hostesses were very nice. Lot's of room in aisles."

Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Pros: "Nicest flight attendants, good food. Best international flight I've had."
Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."
Pros: "leg space was better than with other companies"
Pros: "Always a pleasure to fly on JAL. Despite a cramped seat in economy, the flight attendants made up for the uncomfortable seat. They are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Time went quickly."

Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."
Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."
Pros: "very friendly and very helpful from checkin in to departing"
Cons: "some flt attendants didnt speak english or they didnt understand what i was saying. (but it was fine, i was flying on a Japanese airline and didnt expect them to speak english."
Pros: "Best and consistent service."
Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very helpful and the food great. The aircraft was strict on keeping time."
Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."
Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "I loved flying JAL! I've flown several times between the US and Korea, and this was the best trip I've taken thus far! It was comfortable, the plane was awesome with high ceilings and it actually felt quite spacious. The entertainment was also perfect with tons of stuff to choose from. The best part, though, was their exemplary customer service! I needed to transport cold insulin, so at the gate counter I checked with the gate agent to see if they could refrigerate my insulin since I had a long travel time to my home destination. She promptly found out for me and talked to the flight attendants and told me they would take care of it when I got to my seat. She even checked to see if I needed a special meal or not after I finding out I was diabetic. They were so kind! They even let me refreeze my cold packs in their freezer before landing so I could keep my insulin cold after we landed. It was a huge help and they seemed genuinely concerned for my well being and what I needed. I will now fly JAL whenever I can!"
Pros: "Crews were friendly and helpful. I never had economy seat that goes as flat as theirs. I liked the safety instruction video."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of food options quickly. Wasn't a problem for me. But, they should know better."

Pros: "Cleanliness, spacious legroom"
Cons: "Serve coffee more"
Cons: "Less announcements to interrupt the entertainment."
Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"
Pros: "The crew was excellent & seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better boarding procedures. JAL is better."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Alcohol beverages are free. Good upsated movie selections."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The food was really great! And the entertainment was fantastic! I would absolutely fly with them again the next time I book a trip."
Cons: "They should’ve let us wait in the boarding room instead we all waited in the flight cabin, in our seats for 5.5 hours during the entire time of the flight delay. It was really terrible."

Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "No free WiFi"
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: "There was a air hostess I wish I knew her name I was seated at the very back she really took care of me she thought I was sick she kept asking me am I ok Flyer NH 175 LAX / Nairta because I did not eat at all the food was good don't get me wrong all Airlines should have people like her"

Pros: "Courteous crew, delicious food and comfortable seats for economy. I was looking forward to the return flight!"

Pros: "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome.

Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."

Pros: "Service and food was great, the price of the flight was good and overall, the flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "Can't think of anything negative."
Pros: "I will try and avoid Narita airport, and Ana again. You have to climb a number of stairs with your carry-on off the buses, and then have to go through security again, it's a hassle. I'll prefer the ICN or other airports which are more travel friendly."

Pros: "The movie selection and food served were pleasant surprises."

Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."

Cons: "Food ia not that good. Need to have more flavor"
Pros: "The is nothing I can say I did not like with the Vancouver to Taipei Sector of our flight. I was impressed with the crew, the food, entertainment, seat space, leg room, etc..."
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. This was is our first experience with EVA Air. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad. The food was great! Both my wife and I like the dinner and the breakfast served. Also, the price of EVA Air’s Premium Economy is great compared to similar Asian Airlines from Vancouver to Manila. EVA Air was the cheapest when we started shopping for flights from Vancouver-Taipei-Manila."
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."

Cons: "Was asked if I could check in my carryon because flight was full. I refused because I had something fragile in the bag. after boarding several overhead bins were empty."
Pros: "Everything Hello Kitty."
Cons: "Ugly uniform."
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Cons: "The 6 hours layover."
Pros: "Everything was good as always."
Cons: "Circled over Manila for 30 minutes but that is more of an airport issue not an Eva airline problem."

Pros: "Yes & yes"
Cons: "Very small in the plane"
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."

Pros: "We arrived late again."
Pros: "The airplane was nice and clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Boarding was slow. We had to wait for connecting passsangers. Delay ruined the experience. We didn’t leave in a timely manner. Flight crew was nice. There was a male crew member from LAX to Hong Kong, I could heard talking to the other crew members and he was using profanity. Nothing aggressive but not professional in my opinion. He used profanity in telling his story."
Pros: "Good food, service, and inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Entertainment is always highlight"

What's the reason he think it is more concienent to me. I dont understand his thought. I feel disappointed with the services. The crew are no professional. Please provide more training to these people"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"
Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"

Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Cobrar 45 euros por kilo extra no es normal"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding is messy. Just one very long queue for everyone in economy. No method for organizing by groups. So if you are unlucky, you might end up with no luggage space in the overhead bins that are supposed to be for passengers at that point. Food was a measly 'roll' with generic water diluted juice."
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"

Cons: "3 and a half hour delay at airport, with no compensation from Cathay."

Cons: "My seat couldn't recline"
Cons: "Wish there were more English instructions spoken. It was mostly Thai and Chinese."
Pros: "Food was slightly better than the previous flight."
Cons: "Same lousy headphones. My seat had a led rest that made it harder to get in and out, and wasnt usable due to the close distance to the seat in front. What was the designer thinking? I missed the drink service if there was one, never saw water going around until right at the end. . ."

Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and service was great on all China airlines."
Cons: "On this particular plane it was very uncomfortable. It was extremely noisy (the plane not people) and the exhaust was so strong it made me feel so sick, nauseous and from what I can tell others felt the same. This was the only plane that was like this of the four planes I took on this trip. The rest were excellent overall. Thank you."
Pros: "It was very organized ."
Cons: "Nothing ."
Pros: "First of all, china airlines cancelled my original flight and put me in one 6 hours earlier, I had to change around and pay for changes to my other flights to make it work. Then 3 days before I depart they cancel another flight and don't even offer me one on the same day, they didn't have any. They put me on a flight 17 hours earlier that threw my schedule so much I had to hasltle with them, book anoth r airline and lose another few hundred dollars. To say china airlines is awful and unreliable is an understatement. it is the second time this has happened to me, the appearance of cheaper fairs is never worth the trouble u will have with china airlines or any of its affiliates such and china eastern. Thy have old planes, funny rules about phone use and just awful customer service and disregard for people plans and changes that they make. Never book China airlines. You will regret it I promise you."

Pros: "I fly to South East Asia quote often and have tried a a few airlines. China Airlines has been the most consistent in all aspects. On time, ease of flying, on board entertainment. I will continue to look to use this Airline in the future."
Cons: "The food could be better. Maybe offer an American choice?"
Pros: "the trip was good"
Cons: "Boarding left on time, but there were staff members frustrated and yelling at passengers to get on the plane. Normally I am not a picky eater, but I could not eat the food on the flight. It tasted like dog food"
Cons: "Food was not that great. I expected more in premium ecconomy"
Pros: "I particularly appreciated having so many employees assist those passengers (including me!) who needed to connect in Tapei with the flight to Bangkok. Our flight arrived a bit later than scheduled, and I was concerned that I would miss the connection to Bangkok - but our connecting flight was held for us, and several employees were available to direct us to the correct gate for boarding. thank you all!"

Cons: "The economy class seats are too narrow and crammed."
Pros: "Courteous and professional staff. Excellent food service."
Cons: "Seats were not that good. Needs upgrading."
Pros: "I loved that my knees didn't touch the seat in front of me. As a tall girl and a 12hr flight that would not have been comfortable at all."

Cons: "I can't think of a thing that wasn't to my liking."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."
Pros: "Taipei is a nice airport to make connections through, with amenities on par with Seoul. Seemed much cleaner and more relaxed than other airports in the region that I've flown through in the past, such as Guangzhou or Hong Kong."
Cons: "Flight departed 25 minutes late, but Taipei is a nice airport to make connections through. Still had to go through security between arrival/departure gates, but lines were short at our time of night. Crew seemed a bit tired, since this seems to be the last leg of their shift before rotating out in BKK before the plane goes on to Amsterdam."

Pros: "Seats were a little better."
