I cannot rate the ORD to Japan flight based on not applicable, see prior notation. The JAL staff member in customer service was great. He helped me transfer the flight schedule for the following week at no charge. A level of service not seen during this crazy pandemic situation
JAL cancelled one of my return connecting flight as such has put untoward stress and terrible inconvenience on me. Ive reached out to priceline more than 4 times and said that JAL is yet to approve the request for change in flight details. JAL only approved of it nearly 2 weeks away from my actual revised flight. I was in contact with priceline two to three months away from my cancelled flight from JAL but JAL has delayed the approval of my request for a revised travel plan. All my succeeding plans and schedules were terribly affected by this poor JAL service. JAL did not even tell why they cancelled one of my connecting flights. This delay in their practice is terrible and is a poor reflection of their company values.
Family of 6 liked the flight.
nothing just continue being nice friendly and accommodating thank you 😊
the biggest disappointments was, we were not informed of all the information we need, on our scheduled trip coming back to US.. We've tried a lot of times calling and send an email asking about any procedures that we might need to know upon our return trip, but unfortunately there was no response either at all. then came the horrific day of our return trip to US. after an hour and a half being in the long line, we are surprised when one of the airline staff announce that we need to prepare all documents needed including ANTIGEN TEST. This was the start of our horrific experience on that day. Were told different information from other sources, but heard nothing from JAL, as mentioned earlier that we tried calling them to ask for any info for our flight. Long story short as a result of this horrific misfortune caused by this airline, aside from the unexpected huge expenses that we incurred, as of this moment this problem is not yet resolve as we called them letting them of the situation happened to us in our recent Manila trip going to Seattle May 31, 2022.
JAL is a good flight to visit Far East, especially Thailand for a discounted fares:-)
There were about 20 people on the flight. It was like getting business-class service from the crew.
Pros: "33" seats"
Pros: "Boarding very efficient."
Pros: "All exquisite dishes they served were excellent !"
Cons: "Kiosk, bag service, One World Integration"
Pros: "The boarding process ran very smoothly and they dropped us off right in front of the stairs of the plane so we didn’t get wet in the rain amazing"
Pros: "On time. Boarding was great. Flight wasn’t full so plenty of room to stretch out."
Cons: "This was a JetStar flight, not JAL as the title says. I've only had good experiences with JAL. Despite paying for two pieces of baggage, I had to pay an extra charge. One of my pieces was a pair of light skis (5kg, well below the allowed 20kg) that were apparently too long for normal baggage. It is just another way to extract an extra fee. Seat spacing on Jet Star is dismal. Thankfully it was a short flight"
Pros: "Everything ! Makes me what to travel to Japan more."
Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "JAL is great!"
Pros: "It was short flight.. I slept good through."

Cons: "It was an evening flight, but the cabin lights were never dimmed, so it was difficult to rest."
Pros: "Simply excellent !!!"
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: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
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 overall, crew is very attentive and courteous. Food is better than most airlines Every thing is fine. Boarding is orderly. Crew very courteous. Movie selection is good.. We have been flying JAL for a few times and never regret"
Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"
Cons: "on a 12 hour flight they served meals only twice, at the beginning and at the end.. i was really starving in-between for somethign heavier (though u can ask for those biscuits etc).."
Pros: "I forgot to make prior arrangements for a special meal due to allergy concerns. I notified the crew onboard, and they were attentive to my issue and helped me avoid certain foods which may cause an allergy attack."
Cons: "The seats felt very dated and uncomfortable. The entertainment options were very limited."
Pros: "Very clean. They check the bathroom pretty often un-like AA. Good food."
Cons: "I always prefer this airlines."
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."
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: "Customer service was awesome and the food was good"
Pros: "My son and I enjoyed the courteous and genuinely friendly service and attention from all flight personnel paid too us to ensure a wonderful experience to and from Japan. From Hawaii JAL manager upon check in concern for my son not feeling well to the attendant realizing we spoke no Japanese to apologize and begin conversing in English, every one was pleasant and professional in desire to please us and make our trip so comfortable."
Pros: "the flight attendants were fantastic"
Pros: "The most polite staff that I have ever met. Very accommodating and concerned about our ride over the pacific ocean. I am a vegetarian and forgot to fill order my meal online. The staff was amazing in handling this, offering me everything else they had that wasn't meat. The economy seats were the most comfortable i can remember for an over night flight."
Cons: "The only critique that I would have is on the first flight, they took a while to get our dinner trays, but the second flight was prompt. This just be due to my seat being all the way up front."
Pros: "The crew were cooperative and the supplies were good"
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable and the toilets were so dirty"
Pros: "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
Cons: "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."
Pros: "Very cramped for business class, old equipment. Poor quality food."
Pros: "Everything keep it up!"
Love the friendly staff who went out of their way to assist.
Flight was on time. Food was ok. Seats didn’t have much arm room but was manageable for a short flight.
Rescheduled my flights without asking me. And I am losing money on reservation
Pros: "The lower level cabin attendant did her best to make a better impression than her supervisor. I am grateful to her."
Cons: "The purser was not even polite. Was it because she was veiled and I was wearing a cross? I really hope not. The normal economy seats are cramped to an unacceptable level. I will avoid flying MH economy again. Malindo, a low-cost flying the same routes (SGN-KUL and KUL-CMB) I often fly, has a much better level of service than MH, supposedly a full service airline."
Pros: "I paid $7 for an exit row. I was worth it. The normal economy seats are extremely cramped."
Pros: "Crew were good. Good food."
Cons: "For some reason, the seat was very uncomfortable. Rather hard with little cushion."
Cons: "the food could have been nicer"
Pros: "Cool and excellent service."
Pros: "The people at the check-in desk."
Cons: "A light snack and drinks would have been good. Even just water."

Pros: "Excellent as well!"
Cons: "Everything good as well."

Cons: "There was nothing to fault."
Cons: "Similarly delayed departure and arrived at HongKong over 11/2 hour later- poor service!"
Pros: "Air conditioning"
Cons: "Not much of a meal and serviced quick then picking up paper before finished eating"
Cons: "Tight seating made it less comfortable than normal, and mechanical issues caused some delays."
Pros: "There were choices of foods. I really liked the fact that they considered Korean natives as they gave kimchi together with their dishes. Attendants were polite and kind. 30kg allowance is a great merit too."
Cons: "Frequent delays in flights and changes in timings. There were many passengers and it's quite hard to carry my carrier through the alley. The foods may be in variety but did not taste very nice."
Cons: "Concentrated orange juice? Seriously? Dated flight, seats, interior."
Cons: "Food was lousy"
Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."

Cons: "Entertainment system was old and food was so-so"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "food was horrible"
Pros: "Better overall service - boarding, no delays, comfortable cabins, pleasant crew."
Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"
Pros: "The boarding is a bit mess up as it was delayed by Malindo Air which share the same gate, I wonder Malaysia Airport authorities has run out of resources why cramp 2 airlines in same gate departing 30 minutes apart, crew is OK seats is comfortable but landing is quite uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and landing"
Pros: "Leg room. Thanks Charles. Legend!!! 9c but prefer 10"
Cons: "My screen didn't stay up. Needs fixing"
Cons: "Transfer from domestic to international terminal in KL was slow as only 1 customs officer was working"
Pros: "Latest informtion about the weither"
Cons: "Flight Costume"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, well trained, and friendly."
Cons: "The on-line check in (which their email says is mandatory for economy class--it's not) was buggy. I had to try three times before I was successful."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"
Cons: "I could not select that we wanted a vegetarian menu on the website of this company. The KUL airport is not very big, not many things to do there, very few restaurants. The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "The crews are friendly."
Cons: "Foods was not good for my standard. Below average."
Pros: "On time flights, comfortable seats and good onboard service"
Cons: "Two people on the same PNR, but seated six rows apart. Say what?"
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing special on this flight. Entertainment system didn't actually work at the beginning for everyone on board and had to be rebooted. you would think everything would be thoroughly checked prior to a flight. It started to work about an hour later into the flight."
Pros: "Flights seat is comfortable"
Cons: "Delay and boarding at very last minute."
Pros: "All thing"
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than one hour. Check in counters not enough resulting in long queue."
Pros: "Line took 1 and a half hours to get through. Never again and I plane on going to Bali alot in the next 40 years."
Cons: "Nothing staff was rude"
Pros: "the good services and food"
Cons: "Mohammed Fairhul, on my flight back to KL from bali was super RUDE and unprofessional. He definitely needs a check on himself and lesson about mannerisms. Thank you"
