Airline reviews

Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Time check in maybe earlier."

Pros: "The coach seats were larger than those on domestic flights. The window glass was dimmable for ideal lighting."

Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."

Pros: "The JAL flight was great. Seats were comfortable and leg room was very good. Crew was excellent too and very attentive."
Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."

Cons: "Seat was too hard"

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."

Cons: "The father next to me that spilled two drinks on me. I didn't even get an apology. Beyond sold out plane too..."

Pros: "Everything was perfect! Thank you for a great experience!"

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Pros: "Crew very helpful and courteous"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"

Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Good service and selection of movies.Boarding is orderly. Crew very courteous. . We have been flying JAL for a few times and never regret"
Cons: "Boeing 777 is not as attractive as the new 787.e.g. Ambient lighting, cabin noise control etc., are far more superior in the 787"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of leg room. Food is much better than US airlines and so as the service! Will fly JAL from now on."

Pros: "I liked that the flight attendants were attentive and gave us all refreshments in a timely manneR."
Cons: "The seats were small. But then again, I think that would have been a complaint for all airplanes."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."

Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."

Pros: "JAL ' service is nice."
Cons: "I didn't like MSG in food."

Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"
Cons: "the only thing was this flight was delayed and we missed the flight at LAX, but JAL reserved a hotel room near by for us so that we were able to refresh ourselves and relax till the next flight. thank you JAL!"

Pros: "the AA flight to japan was the worst flight I've ever been on! tv sreen didn't work, space was tight, food terrible, two sets of headphones bad, I could go on but I don't even want to think about it anymore"
Cons: "getting off"

Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."

Pros: "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"

Pros: "It was perfect!"

Pros: "You guys couldn't be any more polite, attentive, courteous. There wasn't a moment during the flight that one of the flight crew was near in case you need something. Definitely best experience in an airline Thanks a thousand"

Pros: "Noting"
Cons: "We had a last minute flight change to extend my business stay in Asia. Our firm contacted JAL on 3/1 to extend the return date from 3/3 to 3/8. We were told that it was done and just call back on 3/7 to confirm flight. When we called back on 3/7, they said the flight was never rescheduled and could not find a voice recording of the request. Despite our offering of evidence of our other ticket from Osaka to TPE (3/3-3/8 round trip) showing that it was not a no-show, and we have phone records of calling JAL on 3/1. Nevertheless, their customer care center in CHINA was firm that it cannot be done. The money has been wasted. Ridiculous service for a 3,500 business class ticket."

This went on for 7 hours and they never made Amy announcements to inform anyone of when the flights would finally board."

Pros: "Awesome trip"
Cons: "No complain. The crew did great service."

Pros: "A380 is great plane (this coming from a real Boeing enthusiast). Very Quiet! Coach had more leg room than I expected, especially for a non-US carrier. Good service and great inflight entertainment. The airline is not a US domestic carrier so flight staff might not understand every English word of a request but they try very hard. Most US carriers would not try as hard if I were speaking Korean! The whole world does not speak your language and remember that coach is coach for a reason $$$. Customs procedures are out of the control of carriers so comments about that."
Cons: "No individual control for air vent and it was a bit warm for me but most people were comfortable."

Cons: "Since long flights with reduced body movement tend to create constipation, would be good to increase vegetables, reduce other stuff."

I love this airport, it is clean, modern and offers so much amenities for FREE. The best for my second time LONG Lay over. My firtst time was at an airport in Alaska which I completely forgot since it was nearly 30 years ago. The flying experience was totally good from flying from BKK as it was also a good airport. I also liked the services, the crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flights were full and of course I had a seat in seat 32E next to a man who was ofviously either sick or had a bad allergy, he sneezed and sneezed 1/2 of the whole flight when he was awake and slept most of the time so it was difficult for me to get in and out to the rest room. Luckily the people in seats 32F & 32G were kind enough to let me in and out (I got out mostly while the lady in seat 32F was getting out of her seat.) Mostly the other experiences were good overall."

Pros: "So very accommodating and friendly. The standard for customer service."

Pros: "Service was attentive, food was appetizing and it was a good experience overall."

Pros: "Good leg room in most seats Eco class, friendly service, on time, the three big domestic carriers should model themselves after Korean Airlines and some of the other Asian Biggs, best regards and safe travels ,World traveler,Dave"

Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"

Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"

Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"

Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."

Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like the service. I like the way they checked my back stuff and put back very neat. I’m very happy with your company,"
Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"

Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."

Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."

Pros: "Their service"
Cons: "Foods"

Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"
Cons: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."

Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."

Pros: "Meals were decent. Staff friendly. Had no problems and was able to sleep a bit."

Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"

Pros: "Staff is awesome"

Cons: "The seats in economy are ok and not a good comfortable seat.. and needs improvement on food menu choices. But no problem boarding, the attendants are courteous and nice.."

Cons: "No problems."

Cons: "Touch screens were a bit glitchy. Was not able to adjust brightness, and volume kept readjusting by itself."

Pros: "Food, crew, and entertainment were great. They give you snacks and drinks right away."
Cons: "Elbow room is tight so pray you don't sit next to someone on the larger side. And the seats and tables look well used."

Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."

Cons: "There was nothing I did not like."

Pros: "Very clean plane. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Lots of leg room. The seat doesn't till back, but instead the seat slides forward. I wouldnt mind to fly again with ANA. Terrific entertainment system and movies."

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive service, good movie selection on new screens."
Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."

Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."

Pros: "One of several preferred airlines when flying to Asia. Really enjoy their service, and it's wonderful to wake up to many beauties in view!"

Pros: "Overall, the staff was amazing, so as the food and cleanliness"
Cons: "The space between the seats in economic seat"

Cons: "In flight food service by cabin crew was spotty, sometimes they gave you coffee with dinner , sometime not, they are very forgetful. Please improve on this issue."

Pros: "Staff was great as usual"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"

Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."

Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"

Cons: "Reservation online"

Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"

Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was very attendant!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, variety of entertainment (sceen) , good food options and friendly and courteous service."

Cons: "1 hour delay of departure"

Pros: "Friendly Staff. Very nice Meet and Greet Comfortable travel. Meals were tasty."

Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."

Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."

Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."

Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."
Cons: "Absolutely no complaints"

Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"

Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."

Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."

Cons: "There was not much leg room in the seatings"

Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."

Pros: "The plane had decent leg room, the food was great, service was excellent. I have no complaints. Snacks were handed out pretty regularly which was great. In flight entertainment was good too. I'll definitely fly Singapore again, I liked it better than other Asian airlines."

Pros: "Christmas decorations, service, attitude of staff"

Pros: "Everything great personnel"

Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."

Cons: "Crew could have asked the passengers whether they need snacks in between."

Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."

Pros: "Both ways I had a whole row to myself, great attendants, in flight screens and charging stations at your seat, frequent meals"
Cons: "Clean bathroom trash more often"

Pros: "I always felt attended to, great customer service, clean and best bang for your buck"

Cons: "good"

Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."

Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."

Pros: "Flew business class to SE Asia and experienced great service, fast check-in & boarding, terrific seating and amenities, and outstanding meals. Came home well rested."

Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."

Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"

Pros: "Great food!!"

Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."

Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."
Cons: "Its unfortunate that your staff sometimes do not get treated with the respect they deserve from a guest"

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."

Pros: "Wonderful service. Truly caring cabin crew that go out of their way to make your flight as comfortable as possible. Other airlines have a lot to learn from Singapore Airlines."

Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"

Cons: "This trip was not quite as excellent as my flights on Singapore Airlines usually are; however, I cannot say for sure there was much that airline staff could have done to change this. A great deal of turbulence earlier in the flight made it difficult to enjoy the food. Also, there was a sewage-like smell that wafted through the air periodically - this could have been a child in the surrounding seats, though. Both of these issues seem difficult for the airline staff to address, however, unless the smell actually came from a problem with the ventilation system. The staff was exceptionally helpful and good-natured, though, which made the biggest difference. Thank you so much."

Cons: "I did not take the flight. The airline changed the scheduled flight. I reached out to JustFly who booked the flight and they said they would rebook a new flight for me but I have yet to receive any notice that my flight was changed."

Pros: "That’s be ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat changes should not change before asking"

Cons: "Food must have variety diversity"

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable..."

Pros: "Great friendly crew an staff. Comfy seats without packing you in."
Cons: "I wish EVA would tell people, especially overweight prople, to respect the space of thier neighbors and not recline thier bodies using part of thier neighbors space."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "They helped me with assigning me to a roomy seat. I am 6' 4". Although I did not think to order a vegetarian option ahead of time they had extras. I would encourage all flights to stock a few extra for people like me who go through booking processes where it is not clear."

Cons: "One of my luggage was damaged when I was from LA to Taipei."

Pros: "Some were so nice with smiles all time"
Cons: "Some looked so cold that even wanna get you a tea and forget about it."

Pros: "I like the service for the extra long distance. It was very noticable that go the extra, for you to make it comfortable to ease the long flight anxiety. The entertainment system was good. The food was a notch above typical airline food. I would fly them again definitley."

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Food not too good, bad terbulance"

Cons: "Nothinh"

Cons: "Eva’s Air is cheap with drinks, whether water or wine. About a Dixie cup of each for a meal."

Pros: "Hello Kitty theme plane"
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Gracious crew. Exceptional meals. Movies and games made a 13 hour flight bearable even in the economy section."
Cons: "Would like a meal schedule so that sleep and snacks could be better managed"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, on time flights and newer 777’s that are clean. Staff was very courteous and attentive. This was my first travel to Asia and I didn’t know what to expect with this airline. Truly impressed!"

Pros: "check in, assistance, efficient, clean, all good"

Pros: "Great food & entertainment choices"
Cons: "The crew should have been more accommodating as I have a broken ankle and am in a cast and have to walk with crutches. It is painful and the only thing that helps the pain is to have it elevated. The crew was not accommodating to help me switch seats to one with more leg room."

Pros: "Service was all good and friendly. Food was ehhh... I appreciate the veg. options, though!"
Cons: "Horrible turbulence. At least 15-20 minutes of straight non-stop hard shaking, with probably around 1 hour in total. Obviously, turbulence isn't fully controllable--but I wonder if a more experienced pilot would have navigated it differently."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive and came around often with snacks and refreshments."
Cons: "Entertainment was a little lacking."

Cons: "Some provided movies showed no subtitles as movie setting."

Cons: "movies are limited. Inbound and outbound flights have the same selections. So too little choices"

Cons: "Please update more new movies and musics"

Cons: "I always say it's better to be too cold then too hot. Cold you can do something about. Put on a blanket or something. Hot your are screwed."

Cons: "我建議你們把所有用餐板中間的hinge tightened, 我回程坐在68D走廊位。當空姐把一杯柳橙汁端給我放在餐板上時,這杯果汁就因hinge鬆弛造成餐板傾斜而滑落。一杯果汁把我白色褲子全染黃。之後空姐有道歉並且拿一套貴賓艙的睡衣褲給我換。這件事不是空姐的錯,我没有責怪她,只想建議你們細察全艙所有的餐板。避免以後的旅客有同樣的意外發生。謝謝長榮航空給我有舒適的旅程!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats & clean washrooms at all times with toothbrush & paste"

Pros: "food is ok."

Cons: "Food and entertainment selection"

Pros: "Seats, staff, customer service"
Cons: "Food wasnt awesome."

Pros: "the crew are very attentive, food was good. seats were better than most airlines. tv's were bigger than most airlines."

Pros: "The same as what we experienced from Manila to Taipei."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Movie and TV selections were minimal compared to other airlines. After landing in LAX, took a very long time for checked baggage to appear, and I had another non-connected flight to catch."

Pros: "Check in staff was nice"
Cons: "Flight attendants has no sense of personal space, at one point one attendant had her entire chest in my face reaching over to get something and she didnt apoligize or acknowledge my presence at all. During the returning flight, i asked for water for my grandma, flight attendant stared at my grandma, didnt say a word, and walked away then later came back with some water."

Cons: "My son & I traveled together on a trip from Manila to USA in Taipei. We had a 3 hour transit time, and waited by the gate of the flight from Taipei to USA. To exercise, I left the gate and walked around the terminal. Coming back to the gate, I could not enter because the ground stewardess blocked the entrance to the gate. I had to wait for 30 minutes until I finally was able to sneak thru the rope barrier that was placed there after the stewardess left. Then when I was confronted again, I explained my situation and this time she let me through to join my son, who was at the gate all this time."

Pros: "Large selection of free movies"

Cons: "Need more choice in movies."

Cons: "My seat was right by the bathrooms so every time someone went in it woke me up through the whole flight"

Pros: "Departed and arrived on time!"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats small good vegetarian food not real great"

Pros: "The entire crew was professional and organized and kind"
Cons: "When I asked for my water bottle to get filled for the rest of the flight, I only got it halfway filled. We could have more variety of movies to watch in English"

Pros: "Couldn't have been better. We are sold. Goodbye United..."

Cons: "Very clean toilets. Nothing I don't like."

Pros: "The staff was very nice and the schedule was pretty on point!"
