Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Time check in maybe earlier."
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "Flight went well and was on time. 2nd best experience for economy seat."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"

Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."
Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"
Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."

Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."
Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"

Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"
Pros: "JAL work ethics are what the Japanese excel at, so there's not much to complain about."
Cons: "The same as most other airlines, the seat width and pitch has been getting smaller. Even with seat by the aisle, my elbow sometimes bumped inadvertently a wayward flight attendant."
Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "Nothing I like , when u buy the ticket they're so nice , but after paid they're very bad, never take care of you, u ask them some help, they're can't"
Cons: "They every bad customer service, I never seen before"
Pros: "Clean :)"
Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."
Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."
Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
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: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The seats very comfy. The food is so good. All including flight attendance are very polite people. Overall they are excellent compared to others that I flew with so far for my business trip to other country. Will be my first choice for my next trip!."
Cons: "Food is not that good"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"
Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."

Cons: "No complaints this time."
Pros: "what did you like? 1. Food and snacks were good. They gave a crispy chocolate that was really delicious. 2. friendly 3. good looking flight attendant always improve the flight"
Pros: "Crew took a while before can attend to our needs. Foods are the same choices very limited to beef and fish. Breakfast items are only cereal and porridge. We are seated behind two small kids who constantly kicking my seats."
Pros: "Comfortable chair foods and wheel chairs awesome"
Pros: "For economy class it has been the best experience, mainly because seats were a little more roomy than other airlines I’ve flown with."
Cons: "Entertainment was not so great, small selection of movies."
Pros: "THE CREWS ARE VERY POLITE"
Pros: "A comfortable flight, with fine service."
Cons: "The connectioning flight was slightly late, but just enough to make it a mad dash through customs and to the furthest possible gate on the opposite end of the terminal. Not within the airlines control, but unnecessarily hectic"
Pros: "Everything. Will definitely chose them again."
Pros: "Got me there and back on time!"
Cons: "Could've had a larger movie selection"
Pros: "Very good service. Spacious one leg space. Good food. Would love to travel again by Korean airline. Thank you !"

Pros: "crew and movives"
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Dont have lots of option on movie"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive, I just thought it was weird that they aren’t allowed to take pictures? That was the only strange thing. Overall one of the best experiences with an airline compared to most. Probably because of the unlimited tasty beverages ;)"
Cons: "Strange that flight attendants can’t take pictures like stated above. And the video games are horribly outdated!"
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance"
Pros: "Very clean and polite flight crew."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose my seat at 24hr check in so I was stuck in the middle and getting out was awkward as I would have to wait for person in aisle seat to eat, wake up or get up themselves."
Pros: "The male flight attendant working the rear of the cabin was the best flight attendant I have ever had the pleasure of flying with. Thanks!"
Pros: "Good service. The food was good, better than most airlines that I've flown with. The seat was comfortable with good leg room. Good documentary films."
Pros: "Air conditioning low and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"
Pros: "The in-flight experience is just fine."
Cons: "It was painful and required multiple phone calls to get a seat assigned. I kept being fobbed off until later... "you can pick your seat when you check in 48 hours before". "You can't check in now because it's a US flight, so it's only 24 hours". "You can't check in now because of visa documents something you have to check in at the airport". None of this was written down, or even satisfactorily explained when I tried to understand what was going on. Next time I'll fly Asiana on the hope they have a better online seat selection system that doesn't involve bizarre US checkin policy."
Pros: "Comfortable, easy, great service."
Pros: "Food and accommodating flight attendants."
Pros: "great flight attendants"
Cons: "Clean, great services, and good food"
Pros: "More legroom Excellent service Good good"
Cons: "Entertainment is dated - not much options and both videos and songs are not the latest. This can definitely be improved with more options"

Pros: "Leg room, choice of food and everall services"

Pros: "As good as Economy gets. Blanket & pillow, slippers and toothbrush; clean bathrooms; decent legroom. Would fly them any time."
Pros: "Service of the flight attendants was excellent, they were courteous, pleasant and professional sort of like the old days of the flying industry. Language was a bit difficult for me to interpret however they took whatever time needed to make sure I understood their communication. Everything is tidy and clean. A good variety of movies, games, music and information channels was provided.I will fly korean Air in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge because the gate staff did not announce in English. It would be more organized if they boarded sets of rows in sequence instead of mass boarding for economy. Also had a problem with transfer at Bangkok Airport. Fortunately I had adequate time for the connecting flight but the transfer area was not opened until 7pm. The transfer process is all new to me and not really easy to understand until the first experience. The Arrival and departure boards rotate airline information which was initially difficult to understand. The headsets were a problem in reference to fitting, volume and quality of tone."
Pros: "Fare was cheap w/ beuatiful service from korean airlines"
Pros: "Punctual, decent leg room. Food is not typical dishes, creative for an airline and actually tasty."
Cons: "The web/mobile check in is convenient. Although morning flights have a long bag drop line. Many arrive before before the counter is open. Bag drop counter should open earlier. If people arrive 2hours early, then bag drop opens 3hrs earlier than the first flight of the day."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, roomie, nice entertainment system that worked the entire time of the trip."
Cons: "Food was just ok"
Pros: "Nice service"

Pros: "Food was pretty good too. Great service for the price!!!"
Pros: "Good accommodations were nice. I received a sleeping mask on my first leg without asking."
Cons: "Little did I know there was a cat on the flight and my allergies started acting up. If I had known there was an animal on the plane, I would have taken some allergy medication."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and the level of comfort."
Cons: "Excellent service and constant food/beverages."
Pros: "Leaving notes for missing meals Trying to help til last minute before landing Smiley face"
Pros: "Staff was great! Great food and fed frequently. No extra charges for luggage, beer or wine. The best flight experience we have ever had! Korean Air goes out of its way to know multiple languages!"
Pros: "Plane left on time"
Cons: "Very limited movie options for someone who flew 4 flights with you in the past 3 weeks. You need to refresh more often or offer more options."
Pros: "We had a short connection after a Korean Air Flight from Hanoi to Seoul before catching KE 085 to JFK. The time pressure was heightened because the first flight take off was delayed. There was an attendant waiting as we deplaned in Seoul who escorted us to the gate and assured us that the plane would wait for us. And miraculously, our baggage tagged for short connection, did make it with us to JFK!"
Cons: "Would love more Movie and TV options"
Pros: "I fly a lot of Asian airlines. This was my first time with KE. Overall, I'd say the food was OK, and I'm not particularly choosy. But the flight from Seoul to JFK was just beef and seafood and a Korean Rice Bowl. Pretty limited. If you're a veggie, I'd suggest putting in for a veggie meal."
Pros: "I liked crews courteous speaking and manner that made me feel comfortable and cared for."
Cons: "Their movie offering is a bit limited."
Pros: "Over all customer service."
Pros: "The crew is crisply dressed and very professional in their demeanor. You feel first class even in economy."
Cons: "Service!!!! Plenty of crew and they are very attentive."
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat on line and ended up in a window seat. With the seats in front of my row reclined all the way back, I could not get out of my seat to use the restroom. Having just transferred from Korean Airlines and taken other asian airlines on my trip, it's a hard comparison to a domestic airline, although Hawaiian is among one of the better domestics. On my food tray, there was a bowl of miso soup, that the attendant was trying to hand me, while there was turbulence. The bowl of miso was smiling all over the tray, and on my napkin, and since I was on the inside seat, almost spilled all over me. On a previous Korean airline fight, also with turbulence, the attendant had taken the bowl off the tray, and covered it with a saran, and then handed it to me to make sure it wouldn't spill all over me. There's a bit of difference there."
Pros: "Cheapflights ..I will book my ticket from you again.. I am so delighted."
Pros: "Amazing service"
Pros: "Attentive crew !"
Cons: "add low carb meal option please!"
Pros: "Speeding of departure after boarding"

Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"

Pros: "Crew and service were top notch. Everything done efficiently and flawlessly. Food was good. Flight was smooth and trouble free,"
Cons: "Nine hours in tight confinement just cannot be fun. There is no way that great service can fix the problem of being kept in an extremely small and uncomfortable space. Business and first class are unaffordable, so there is no solution. I'd fly more if it were not so painful."

Pros: "In-flight service, in-flight entertainment, environment temperature"

Pros: "flight attendant in business not as nice as sfo to narita"

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: "Food very good.. I like it. I will go again. I want to come back"
Pros: "Entertainment/video options were good. I was upgraded to Economy Plus, which meant significantly more legroom and more comfortable seats."

Pros: "Small airport"

Pros: "Every things"
Cons: "They never gave my baby's stroller when I landed at my destination..i.e. Houston.

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"
Pros: "Service from crew was excellent. Food was good. Also enjoyed city tour of Doha during long layover."

Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."

Cons: "24H delay, no meals, no coordination, no communication."
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."

Pros: "Great food, Comfy, Great staff. Usual I dont review but really enjoyed those 4 flights with Qatar"
Pros: "Excellent airline. Great experience. Easy. Professional. Efficient."
Pros: "The Airbus A380 double decker was very roomy and a wonderful plane to fly on. I loved this flight and it seemed like the flight breezed past very quickly. They had all of the star wars movies so I was very happy. Oh and the kids meals on these flights are huge. They seem bigger than the adult meals. So your child will not be going hungry for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was very strange. We had a 4 hour layover. We had to stay out in the hallway until about 30 minutes before boarding began. This was uncomfortable for passengers as there were very few seats and many took to sitting on the floor. The segregated room for boarding had plenty of seats but was locked off for some reason. We literally only got into the room just 5 minutes before we boarded. I thought this entire process was very backward. They need to let passengers use the room for longer periods. It was pretty stupid that we had to sit on the floor because they wont allow people to sit in the room with the chairs..."
Pros: "The services is very satisfied and every thig was excellent"
Pros: "Lounge facilities"
Cons: "There was no place to keep my Cell phone , eyeglasses, or even the book I was reading--- would have liked an alcove or cubby. Loved this feature in Business class when I flew with Emirates. Food choices were better with Emirates. Qatar needs to look into these features in order to beat their competition."
Pros: "Very professional crew. Modern plane."
Cons: "The boarding announcements were in Arabic and Vietnamese. We did not hear it in English Perhaps we missed it if they did."
