Airline reviews

Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Crew helpful and willing to please."
Cons: "The food and overall service amenities are lacking in JAL. My flight was 8 hours and only one meal was served and one snack. The meals themselves are nothing special or enjoyable."

Cons: "none"

Pros: "Courtesy of crew members"
Cons: "No vegetarian food available"

Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"

Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Having to leave a comfortable setting"

Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"

Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."

Pros: "A sense of quiet efficiency. On time and courteous."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Again not enough to padding in seats"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."

Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"

Pros: "Plenty of room for economy seats. Good food. Free movies and music. Friendly service."

Cons: "Air temperature was super hot and uncomfortable."

Cons: "Food was bad compared to other flights to Tokyo that I have taken and entertainment was very weak."

Pros: "Everything! JAL ground crew, airline crew, their service is excellent. The interior of the airplane looked nice."
Cons: "It could use more games for children"

Pros: "Food, good, Too Much even! Beers, sweedish meatballs, and caramel Gelato just to name a few. Actual seat comfort was fine. Stewards performed well."
Cons: "Lies, not JAL....American Airlines. Paid for JAL received American. Checking in sucked, a whole explanation would wreck this page.....could not reserve seats near spouse. ....in flight entertainment was less than mediocre....seat positioning was grueling not able to get comfortable for the 13hour trip."

Pros: "Great friendly staff, good food, good entertainment."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "I loved how accommodating the flight was. I would use JAL from this point forward if possible."

Pros: "Everything on the 787 except the seats in Biz Class"
Cons: "Biz class seats on this 787 recline to almost flat, but not flat & the remaining tilt is enough to make you slip toward your feet, so it's less comfortable than 777 biz class seats"

Pros: "Courteous and excellent service. It was a better choice than a cheapo alternative I have taken before. Seat was comfortable for the two hour trip. Everyone seemed happy with the flight which made the tone of seatmates pleasant."

Pros: "Plane service was good, comfortable, punctual and ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Food was ok,"

Pros: "Amazing service; flight attendants were very quick to respond to requests and very very polite and friendly Comfortable space; considering it was economy the seating was surprisingly roomy"

Pros: "Everything was excellent. I always trust JAL to give me a comfortable flight. Food and drinks were given out very often and the attendants were very kind. I kept myself entertained with the in-flight movies for most of the trip, they have quite a library to choose from. Thank you for making my long trip easy!"

Pros: "Nothing... Being put on the wrong airline is incredibly degrading ..."
Cons: "I paid for JAL and was put on American airlines YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY BUSINESS AGAIN ... Kayak or jp\american airline. I hope you hire a manager who doesn't lie to their customers... Don't think it's a lie ?? That's BC greed is blinding. Good day"

Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."

Pros: "Fan tasting service by the crew members from the point of check in. Very attentive to all details."

They spoke great English and ensured me and my husband sat together during our 15 hr flight to Vietnam.! They had so many options on new movies and music that helped pass the time. The food was very tasty as well as there snacks and drinks! The entire staff were helpful and appeared to enjoy their jobs. I will always fly with ANA when returning to ASIA."
Cons: "The seats seem small and are ok in comfort."

Pros: "A transfer flight was delayed but ANA did some special logistics behind the scenes that made us catch our transfer. Very happy/impressed."

Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."

Pros: "Ana is the best"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I could upgrade my seat from a regular economy seat to a premium economy seat about 24 hours in advance. The flight attendants were generally attentive and thanks to the kindness of my ajacent passenger to my left, I could sometimes go to restrooms."
Cons: "I usually take an aisle seat, but it was not available this time. Furthermore, my ajacent passenger to my right hand side had cold and often coughed and I myseld caught cold from him during this flight...."

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "Delightful service, comfortable seats, delicious food... what a treat! It was a pleasure to fly ANA and I look forward to doing so again."

Pros: "Great comfort."
Cons: "Limited entertainment compared to other airlines."

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

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Food and service was excellent"
Cons: "Aircraft airconditioning was quite hot."

Pros: "The flight crew heard word we were headed to Japan for our wedding. They quiety prepared a card and a beautiful bouquet made out of candies and straws. Absolutely brilliant and so sweet to receive such a from-the-heart gift. Thanks to the wonderful staff on the March 31st 2016 flight. We were truly blown away and so grateful for the wonderful service and welcome."

Pros: "Great entertainment selection and food"

Pros: "Ok price"
Cons: "I booked the flight and my seats.. When I got to my actual flight they didn't have my confirmation of seats and got separated from my sister. I called to complain to the actual airline and it turns out it was kayak who did my wrong. Very unhappy for 11 hours."

Pros: "extremely polite and well organized"

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "This was a great flight- there were lots of movies to choose from, and the meal was one of the best I've ever had on an airplane. Plus, there was ice cream. ANA is probably my favorite because they always give me ice cream. They also offer me drinks often, and when I asked for water they gave me a bottle instead of just a cup. Since passengers tend to get dehydrated while flying, it was nice to have water that I could sip whenever I wanted."
Cons: "There could be a little wider range of entertainment, but otherwise the flight was fantastic."

Pros: "They were polite."
Cons: "I asked for a pen and the crew lied about not having one. The tray table was covered in crumbs as was the back of the seat in front of me."

Cons: "Hungry and meals are too loosely prepared. Need more food"

Cons: "Keep the good work up."

Pros: "Excellent service on both flights. Truly a 5 star experience. Well done Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "The customer service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."

Pros: "The service was great! I slept almost the whole way in economy and was very comfortable!"

Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."

Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"

Pros: "Excellent seats..."

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"

Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"

Pros: "I love the smiley flight attendant , especially for long distance flight. It would make it better trip to have smiley and helpful flight attendant. The meals provided by QA is good. it would be better with more fresh fruit on every meals."

Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"

Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."

Pros: "The in flight service was great.. Crew was excellent."

Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."

Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."

Pros: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."

Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."
Cons: "So the seats while comfy are not as nice as the seats now on the reframed United Polaris and Delta and Air France in their newer planes."

Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants-very courteous and responsive to all of the folks sitting in the "cheap seats"."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"

Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Cons: "Service,"

Pros: "It was just a lovely airplane with a lovely crew. Also, good airplane food."

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"

Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."

Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"

Pros: "Quick boarding, good choice of movies"
Cons: "Would have been nice to get offered beverages more often. Was hard to get water as much as I needed without disrupting my fellow seat mates."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "flight left very late. couldnt make up time on the way. had to struggle to make it to the connection."

Pros: "The crew was just fine."
Cons: "Checking on the cleanliness of the toilets frequently"

Pros: "The seats were spacious and comfortable. Ample room for the long flight."
Cons: "Desert option: warm cookies"

Cons: "In most cases i was so disappointed to be allowed only 1 lugage of 50lb while i was supposed to be allowed 2 50lb of bags,i had to pay 275$ for the extra luggage,very disappointed as i was not expect that to happen,you guys made me look ashamed infront of people as i had to borrow money to pay for"

Pros: "Crew was generally very good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours"

Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."

Cons: "I booked thriugh justfly.com and there was an error with the name on the tocket. I was charged 300 dollars to cancel with emerites and then 150 to cancel with Justfly.com and then had to buy a new ticket the day before my flight. I lost a lot of money, was unable to talk to good customer service."

Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."

Pros: "Emirates itself was great but using fly Dubai from Dubai to Kabul was awful."
Cons: "No flights to Kabul using Fly Dubai when someone books tickets actually for Emirates."

Pros: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."

Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."

Pros: "Least amount of time spent at baggage check, most helpful service on the ground and in flight, that I have ever experienced."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."

Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"

Pros: "The sitting is nice with good leg room"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything I don’t like."

Cons: "Being late and have 24 layover at Dubai . Am still at dubai"

Cons: "The flight fid not depart on time and therefore I missed the connecting flight. Had to spend a day in a hotel until the next connecting flight."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The food was very good and there were a lot of choices for entertainment. All of the crew were friendly."

Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."

Pros: "Service courtesy helpfully"
Cons: "I could not get pure vegetarian food as i am a strict vegetarian"

Pros: "Most of the crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "There was a hair in my food. Seats 46a and 46b were very constricting, leaving it very uncomfortable for sitting."

Cons: "Dubai to blre flight was better than IAD to Dubai as there was a chewing gum stuck over the window's edge next to my seat."

Pros: "Almost $1400 value items were broken in my two fregile box/bag."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Less attention to my two kids"

Cons: "Thanks for Service"

Pros: "The outstanding service of the flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."

Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."

Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, well mannered"
Cons: "Took flight attendants some time to clean up, not responsive to call light, seemed overwhelmed somehow."

Cons: "IAD-->DXB--?AMM; Airlines took my stroller from me before boarding the first flight to Dubai(at gate), and they gave it to me in Amman. WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"

Cons: "Really small space. Airport crew was dismal. Boarding was more disorganized than in a poor African country and boarding is easy, I really don't understand"

Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"

Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."

Pros: "The A380 equipment is beautiful and spacious even in coach. The changing ambient lighting added to a great positive experience. Food and service was excellent. The entertainment system and seat amenities are top notch - large screen, great selections, power sources, remote control (cabled). I was so impressed I planned to join their frequent flyer program (*** but see review of second leg - Dubai to Manila *** )."
Cons: "Was served the wrong meal even though I double-checked with the FA."

Pros: "The food was horrible. We were served almost an hour late after everyone and not given and option to select our food. I would like some kind of response from the airline service on this."

Pros: "The 380 is a great plane, the quiet and comfort."

Pros: "The hygiene kits that they offer! They are awesome and very much appreciated."
Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."

Pros: "I have high expectations for Emirates, and for the most part they delivered."
Cons: "They ran out of many food options by the time they came to my part of the plane. These new planes are designed poorly. Passengers were not even allowed to carry out a basic conversation near the restrooms at the back of the plane without being shushed left and right from cabin crew in their private quarters and other crew up the stairs."

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. Crew was attentive, but stingy with liquids."
Cons: "Connection was too short and airport too big. I had to literally run through the terminal and my bags didn't make the flight. Window seats on A380 are too far from window to sleep comfortably."

Pros: "Very comfortable pod."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "it was nice trip with emirates, You have excellent services Thanks"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."

Pros: "I’m very disappointed by the supervisor treatment at the time I was checking in and weighing my luggage. It is very frustrating to see that I was forced to pay US$ 175 for an excess of only 9 Kg. Even after I told him that my other luggage didn’t have the maximum weight he insisted either to throw away my items or pay the amount. The supervisor was ready to either not let to board the flight or leave my luggage. I could have appreciated if either charged only extra 9kgs or move the excess volume to check in luggage that was not full. The supervisor was not ready to listen and he constantly treats me in a disrespectful manner. Given to the mistreatments I had I have vows not to travel with Emirates anymore and also advise my friends and colleagues not to use it. I hope you will use this feedback to improve your customers services."

Pros: "Liked the Customer Service, Flight, neatness, entertainment and food"

Pros: "Just a great experience for a very long flight. The kind of pampering you don't see on any other airline."
Cons: "Well the food would have been terrific but was overcooked. Staff was unfamiliar with White Russian drink. There was no cream available for above or for coffee."

Pros: "Seats are spacious and comfortable. Flights were on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Food was not too good."

Cons: "They should always have WiFi!"

Pros: "chicken fried steak was actually good."
Cons: "had some difficulty understanding attendants' English."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Bring some salt and pepper, or only go with the Korean menu. Western fare was exceptionally bland"

Pros: "Clean plane, good cabin crew, and it was nice being offered a meal while only on a 2-hour flight,"
Cons: "Compared to other airlines the entertainment is not as good, and the tv screens are quite dated."

Pros: "Seat comfort and service"
Cons: "Cabin temp too warm; mediocre headphones (bro f your own)"

Pros: "Check in was smooth all helpful Cabin crew were efficient cockpit communication good."
Cons: "No alchoholic drinks available with lunch service. Emphasis seemed to be on duty free sales early stages of the flight"

Pros: "Great services. Seat was good."
Cons: "The queue to board could be better."

Pros: "The aircraft was newer and more spacious than the long flight from LAX to Incheon."

Cons: "Big delay for more than one hour."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food is so good."
Cons: "The check in counter is not fully organized. I encounter so much delay in checking in my luggage. The new employee must be properly assisted by the old personnel to avoid long hours of waiting and standing in the counter of the passengers who arrived early so they can check in their baggage ahead of time. I availed of your web check in but was waiting for so long in the check in counter."

Pros: "Service and food"

Pros: "Requested an aisle seat and granted upon check in. Flight crews are young, nice and friendly. Food are delicious."

Pros: "The airline crew were very helpful in making today comfortable during the long flight."
Cons: "Go around and serve water more often. Two lavatories don’t have water to wash your hands. Please provide liquid/foam hand sanitizers OT wipes at least."

Cons: "Flight departed and arrived almost two hours late. Unacceptable especially since it wasn’t mechanical but waited for a connecting flight. Now I may not be able to get a ride out of the airport and back to my camp in time for curfew."

Pros: "On time arrival; professionalism."
Cons: "The business class seat is cramped for business class standards. I also wanted seconds for dessert but somehow I was made to feel it was not allowed, that the FA has to check with someone if there was enough on board. Mind you the plane was not full."

Cons: "Korea to Phnom Penh the food could be better."

Pros: "comfortable and simple, friendly staff and no hassles"
Cons: "options on food and drinks limited movies to select limited options and nothing exciting for my taste"

Pros: "Meal was surprisingly fresh & tastey."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable. Entertainment system minimal selection."

Pros: "Asiana solved a boarding issue with my friend missing his flight. Not only did they get a flight for him that day, it was also free of charge. They went above and beyond for him. Amazing service."
Cons: "The airplane temperature was too hot. Along with my seat mates, I felt like I was in a 13 hour sauna. That being said, airplanes are known to be dry. I would have liked a complimentary large water bottle and/ or personal fan to combat how uncomfortable the experience was."

Pros: "Food was nice. Especially, Bulgogi? korean special rice ball was not just a food, but also gave us experience of mixing to make it. Crew gave me smile always."
Cons: "Entertainment was poor. It maybe caused by airplane model."

Cons: "... 3) Upon landing in ICN, a connections Asiana staff, instead of an apology, shouted "Hurry up, you are late". I was not late; Their plane was late! 4) In ICN, the connection flight was also delayed by half an hour. We arrived so late that I missed the last airport limo bus & was forced to arrange alternate, more expensive, transport to my lodging accommodations. 5) while in ICN, I experienced the same Curt conduct from Asiana staff!"

Pros: "I enjoyed having a larger screen for my personal in-flight entertainment. It was much better than on the 777."
Cons: "The seat was noticeably less comfortable on the A330 compared with the 777. The breakfast meal was pretty bad."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, this is the worst flight(s) for a 16year old to experience. Missing connecting flights, rerouted to arrive 2 days later and missing luggages. And airlines did not compensate jack sh!t."

Pros: "This airline and this model of aircraft (Airbus 380) makes a 14 hr transpacific flight almost enjoyable! We've flown this route numerous time and this was by far the most comfortable experience"

Pros: "Food o utstanding for economy....a as good as air France Movies selection excellent"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "It seemed like the air conditioning wasn't working so the flight was really warm and uncomfortable. I was trying to fan myself with the emergency exit handout. Also, the tv screens were really small, old, and didn't have a very good selection of movies."

Pros: "I like the food"

Pros: "The staff are nice and friendly and courteous. Food is pretty good too."

Pros: "I liked being seated toward the back of the plane so that me and my cat had some privacy. The crew was very polite and gave me thorough instructions for transporting my cats."
Cons: "I bought a carrier for my cat that fit the airline's specifications, but it didn't fit all the way under the seat. Because of this, I had to put my cat in the overhead bin during takeoff. This gave me and my cat a lot of stress, although they let me take her out during the landing. Also I thought the airline would open much earlier than my flight so that I could ensure the safe transfer of my pet-in-cargo."

Cons: "This previous was delayed because they sold their empty seats to other airlines and allowed for those people to make it. However, those who had connecting flights weren't able to make it and had to stay overnight in Korea. The next flight arrived 14 hours after the original scheduled flight."

Pros: "Roomy seats and comfortable. Nice staff. We definitely recommend to our friends to fly with this airline."

Pros: "Plane was clean and crew was friendly."
Cons: "This was a 5 hour flight and there was no food offered. There was also no entertainment option other than music."

Pros: "Overall Asiana offers very good service on their flights. It was a newer plane and provided limited in-flight entertainment options (movie selection was rather limited, no games). Crew was very efficient and things moved very smoothly. No complaints!"

Pros: "I like how they gave us an empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. It was better on the way in. Boarding took forever. It didnt seem like they came around with beverages."
