I believe the Japan airline was very prejudice against me and some other Mexican passengers they let other Japanese people board but not us. I had my 48 hour test but they turned us away and I paid over $1,600 for that ticket and I got turned away in Los Angeles. I haven’t had a chance to complain. I made it to the Philippines a month later. But I really hate Japan and Japan airlines. I will never think about using them again. And I tell all my friends the story Unthinkable all that money and all you can say is we’re sorry Clinton Dow

Cons: "I needed to change the date of the flight and JAL refused to change it. that sort of made it a bad flight since I couldn't take it."
Cons: "Wider arm rests"
Pros: "Soo Much Food! Crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "They didn’t offer a vegetarian meal option in flight, but there was enough sides that it didn’t really matter."
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."
Pros: "Everything ! Makes me what to travel to Japan more."
Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "Felt welcomed"
Cons: "Just felt a little cramped but not to bad"
Pros: "The staff are really nice helpful and respectful."
Cons: "I dont l8ke the restrooms, they shoukd be always be cleaned most of the times. No cup noodles."
Pros: "Beautifully presented and tasty Japanese food. Electronic windows."
Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."
Pros: "It was impossible to breathe throughout the 13-hour flight. It was very hot and humid. Several people asked for the temperature to be adjusted but they never really took care of it. The food was really cheap and stale--quite a disappointment for an expensive flight Tokyo-New York."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My 12 hrs layover in Japan."
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "nice flight."
Pros: "Everything!!! Excellent customer service. Will definitely use their airlines whenever possible.Very polite and always smiling and frequently checks on you if u need anything unlike other airlines."
Cons: "None whatsoever."
Pros: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"
Cons: "You mean the flight that never happened? The one that was suppose to fly out at 12:50 on 1/6/18 delayed until 17:25 (with acceptable communication the first delay) but then later delayed till 00:10 after I’ve already arrived at the airport early for the 17:25 departure. The screens with arrivals and departures posted that Checkin was open but there was no JAL staff to answer questions. Then getting an update “maybe” the 00:10 flight is cancelled? What is maybe cancelled and JALs phone messege still said the flight would depart at 00:10. So I go back to JFK because after all “maybe” isnt a definitive and according to all the direct JAL sources the flight is suppose to depart, I get to JFK the second time only to be given a printout saying the flight is cancelled with no rebooking, and to call for assistance. The same number is been calling for hours trying to get answers. coukdnt reschedules because I’m calling outside of business hours! I spent $200 on cab rides going back and forth to JFK to go nowhere, get no apology, no new flight booking, and no reimbursement for transportation."
Pros: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."
Pros: "Amazing service and amazing food! For such a long flight I was extremely comfortable! Loved that the crew members kept me informed since I was spotty with Japanese they were very good!"
Cons: "Can't really say anything bad! It was great!"
Pros: "Japan Airlines gets it right. The boarding was very calm and efficient. The attendants were working the whole flight to make the trip pleasant. Food was good."
Cons: "There could have been a few more diverse choices on the entertainment channels but generally OK. The one complaint I had was that it was hot on most of the flight."
Pros: "Excellent food. Lots of food, drinks. Comfortable plane."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Still, love JAL's customer service from the cabin crew. The flight attendants are always friendly, courteous and professional. They do a great job of meeting and exceeding passengers expectations"
Cons: "The cabin area was extremely warm; at one point, I had to take out the safety card and fan myself. There was no explanation why the approximately 5-hour flight was uncomfortably warm. During the flight, I woke up from a sound sleep because of the heat in the cabin."
Pros: "The movies they offered."
Cons: "How long it took the flight attendens to come back and take trash and out trays for both of the meals. It made it super uncomfortable in the tiny space available. Also, not enough knee space, especially when the person in front of you puts there seat back. I flew with American Airlines on the way to Japan and I had plenty of room but I wish it was the same coming home."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."
Cons: "服务态度非常好"
Pros: "The flight was normal and without problems. As a frequent traveler throughout Asia that is always welcomed."
Pros: "Great flight, great staff. The food wasn't bad either."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."
Pros: "I like everything about my flight"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike"
Pros: "JAL 787 Coach Product is better than AA Coach 777 product. Wider Coach seats. 787 aircraft is more comfortable overall (less noisy, higher humidity, higher pressure) resulting in a better experience after my travel."
Cons: "Meals are not fantastic; they never seem to be in coach. Much of the entertainment seemed similar to what was on the same aircraft when I traveled three months earlier."
Pros: "I asked for a window seat but if was not available. I was told to go to an information desk which were not too close and it turned out that they couldn't help."
Pros: "delicious meals with good drink selections. cabin crews were nice and have smiles on them all time. I saw crew provided excellent services to a young mom traveled with 1 kid and 1 infant with her mom on board throughout the whole flight which were impressive."
Cons: "I believe the air line cut down snacks between meals (my flight were 13 hours) which was little disappointed. Restrooms were not as clean as before although they were way better than other airlines. Crew's English speaking still need improvement. Please keep up the good works! I will flight JAL again soon."
Pros: "The small touches - the hot soup in the middle of the flight was nice and comforting, the crew were exemplary in their hospitality, the seat was easily the most comfortable Economy Class seat I've sat on."
Pros: "On the flight home they upgraded me to business class while apologizing my original economy seat was not available. Amazing. I had a rather unsettled stomach so when the food service came I wasn't hungry. I told the flight attendant, and she brought me some very bland easy to eat food without me even asking. She then checked on me constantly to see how I was feeling, and suggested sparkling water. When I deplaned, she checked one more time with me, if they could do anything. I was feeling much better, and give this airline my highest endorsement."
Cons: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"
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: "Best prices for quality service. If the prices for JAL are within $30, I will always select JAL."
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 schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "excellent seat space and excellent in-flight service."

Flight attendants are always pleasant and helpful. Pilot kept us updated.

Cons: "I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch."
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "economy has NO room, couldnt bend down to get anything out of my bag below the seat unless my face was in the lap of the person next to me"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Seats too small."

The meal vouchers offered were an unexpected bonus. Thanks."
Cons: "Foot space in front of seat was limited."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Meal was excellent"
Cons: "Would have liked a blanket, it was a bit cold."
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "We had to take a connecting flight from Paris and British Airlines were very inconsistent with their hand carry policy which gave me so much stress."

Cons: "All g."
Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic."

Cons: "My dead would not recline, but I would not find any fault with my flight even with that."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "Staff were kind and thoughtful with younger passengers."
Pros: "It was what I expected"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "Best airline I've ever traveled on. The staff was amazing! I felt well cared for and tended to. This airline is very attentive to detail. We took a Christmas Day flight and were told that the very slight turbulence was attributed to Santa landing on the plane. A few minutes later, St Nick made a little cameo to say hello to the children aboard! Loved it!!"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "You had to pay for 3/4ths of the movies and shows. Kayak didn't specify whether I had a checked bag or not so when I got to the airport I had to fork over $120! I had no choice because I'm not going to leave my luggage behind. I was not pleased with this third party booking."
Pros: "I loved the food, the flight attendants were lovely, and the selection of free entertainment meant I was never bored."
Pros: "I was able to watch the entire Game of Thrones Season Six on the flight to Vancouver, and catch up with The Walking Dead on the return flight."

Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Great entertainment system with lots of selections. Electrical outlets and USB port also great amenities"
Cons: "I am a small person and found the legroom to be inadequate. I paid $50 to upgrade the seats to economy plus to give us a bit more space but it wasn't any better. For a long, overseas flight, more space is needed. I had more legroom on my domestic flight with United. Also, the airline attendants for Air NZ were unpleasant and downright grumpy at times. It made a long, uncomfortable flight seem a whole lot longer."
Pros: "The service in Premium Economy was outstanding with two dedicated and attentive staff members. The food was excellent and drinks served in real glass made a difference. the space was generous, seats comfortable, and pillows and blankets of a higher quality than economy. Overall a superior experience."
Cons: "Check in was a bit of a mess with no dedicated line for premium economy, business, or first class."
Pros: "I absolutely adored Air New Zealand. The airplane itself was a ball of fun with its purple lights. The flight crew was funny and charming, and quite attentive to people who wanted snacks and beverages. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "I hated that it costs $150 for an extra (2nd) checked in luggage. If you are flying international, typically you get 2 free checked in luggages. This caught me by surprise, and I wish it was brought to my attention before I went to the airport. The seats were okay, didn't recline as much as I would've liked. But overall I enjoyed my ANZ flight."
Pros: "Shorter layover times with connecting flights compared with flying through LA. Aircraft had numerous toilets with great service and food. Water was brought around at regular intervals through out the entire flight. Something one appreciates when travelling with an Airline that does not offer this level of service Keep it up Air NZ"
Cons: "Economy seating is to tight and restrictive for a flight of 14-15 hours. If Airlines are going to offer this length and longer flight times they need to look at the spacing of there seating!!"
Pros: "Jet blue flights seem generally good. Like the WiFi access to be Able to use flight time efficiently."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was 6 hours late. When finally ready to go could not find crew"

I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"

Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Pros: "Nice upgrade since we didn’t have seats! Delta was a good flight but don’t ever wanna fly on Aeromexico again!"
Cons: "Had all my jewelry stolen from my luggage!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice"
Cons: "Too tight in the seats"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Seats, the whole flight experience"
Pros: "direct flight from bdl to cun."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, polite, and professional."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable, but much too crowded. The seating would have been very good for children but for adults it was much too crowded. My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?"
Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat-back display screen could use some updating/improving. Also, the earbuds weren't very good."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
Pros: "Very satisfied. Great service"
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Pros: "On time, pretty friendly crew"
Cons: "Too small a plane for that long a trip. Bathrooms were VERY small & rare."
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "Flight was fine. They were especially generous with the snacks."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, besides the flight was slightly delayed but not by long"
Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"
Cons: "The line for printing the pass was not open. I showed up 2 hrs prior. After dealing with the kiosk for more than 1/2 hour. I missed my flight."
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined."
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Se had a Nice menu on board"
Cons: "No food to sell on board"
Cons: "There delay"

Horrible flight

Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2hrs."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Check in on line was diffucult and did not include opportunity to precheck a check in bag. Acwaste of time fir everyine in line"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "To have us sit together"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Smelly WC and crew"
Cons: "Seats had even less legroom than the worst US airlines. I'm and 5'8" and I could barely fit my knees and once the person in front of me decided to recline his seat I couldn't even do that."
Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"
Pros: "Nothing. Iberia Airlines employs theives."
Cons: "Two one way tickets were purchased to Cancun. The layover was 2 hours... but since the first carrier was late, it caused us to miss our connecting flight. Because the 2 tickets were from different carriers, the airline charged us $1600 to buy new tickets. I would never buy tickets this way again."
Pros: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."
Cons: "Inside could do with a clean, but it was an older 737 workhorse, typical wear & tear. I paid more than expected but I did get a good reliable service."
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "El vuelo salió atrasado . Teníamos acientos en AM+. Incómodos El sistema de entretenimiento no funcionó. Pedimos que lo vean para arreglarlo. Nadie nos acercó con respuesta. Mal trato del personal a bordo"
Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"
Cons: "Your customer service center is useless. The representatives do not help, they are mean and patientless."
Pros: "There was great service at the desk when I needed to have my flight rescheduled. Friendly staff in flight as well."
Cons: "Having less than an hour to deplane, go through immigration, them security just isn't enough time between flights. I missed my plane as Guadalajara immigration took almost 2 hours at 5:45am. I then had to add another flight to my itinerary. Planes are somewhat old."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of snacks, prefer chips"
Pros: "Choice of beverages was good, flight attendants impeccable."
Cons: "I was in Classe Premier. My seat was extremely hard to recline and my let rest wouldn’t extend. Very uncomfortable 2 and a half hours."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."
Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"
Pros: "I didn't have a seat and was upgraded to first class, which was AMAZING."
Cons: "Horrible customer service and delayed all our plans"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "A horrible flight!!! We arrived at 5:04pm then we sat on the tamarac for 40 minutes before they could find a gate for us!!!! What a horrible lack of management!’ Who runs this airport/airline!? At the end they moved us to completly different terminal!!! Had to find a new transportation to the hotel!!! Again, what a horrible display of management skills!!"
Pros: "We made it"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours. The flight was cold and miserable and today I’m sick."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Surprise first class!"
Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though). They informed us that we would need to go to the Delta ticket counter when we arrived in Cancun (with a short layover). This is an unacceptable level of service."
Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Cons: "I had to document my luggage in every airport"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."
Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Delay, gate change, reissue of boarding pass. It was confusing. Mostly airport issues, not Aeromexico."
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Que solo tengan cacahuates y el avión no tenía pinta de haber sido aseado antes de abordar"
Pros: "attendants heard your grievances."

Cons: "Late boatding"
Pros: "Buenas actitudes"
Cons: "Missed flight due to my connection flight being iver one hour late"
Pros: "Seats had the television screen in the seats instead of the monitors that come down from the ceiling. Everyone could choose what they wanted to watch. Good selection of movies and television shows. Airline stewards were nice."
Cons: "All three of our flights were delayed. It was stressful trying to get to new gates and not sure if we would make our flights or not. No explanation why there was delays. However, this worked out to our advantage or we would have missed our flights."
Pros: "Everything - the excellent service continued."
Cons: "That our flight was finished."
Cons: "Almost lost the conection at MEX because I was waiting for my baggage, nobody said anything until 20 minutes the bags for the flight stop coming."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket, but the airline changed Equipment to a plane without a first class cabin. I was unceremoniously bumped back to coach and placed in front of two screaming children who proceeded to yell, kick my seat and hit me in the head for the entire flight. Never fly aeromexico"
Pros: "Excellent legroom, friendly service, on time"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason, very irresponsible msnagement"
Pros: "At least this one is on time."
Pros: "It appears not many pay for the upgraded seats between MEX And CUN. My husband and I had 6 seats to ourselves to stretch out on! Boarding priority was non existent and in flight entertainment was for children, but overall it was a comfortable flight."
Pros: "flight on time, flight price"
Cons: "food"
