I am request a total refund and suffering. Fight JL7519 from Miami to Los Angeles on June 9. I paid my Covid test $300usd (antigen then PCR). I also booked three Hong Kong Hotels. W's Hotel, then Homy inn North point. The last Hotel was with Japan agent, he said Regal Hong Kong is "fine" but after I booked and paid the Hotel. Then the Japan airlines said "no". I lost my non-refundable hotel money and didn't get the ticket to go to Hong Kong. Please refund my money. 435-363-9297. kylwal@mail.com fly from Miami to Hong Kong kyle Au. stopped in Los Angeles.

Pros: "The crew was great and entering and exiting the plane was quick."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable, but I feel like that is a comment for most planes that fly internationally."
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "JAL LAX Ground staff. Not helpful."
Cons: "I might have missed it but the useful information of the weather of the destination was not announced this trip. Some pilots make the flight more personal with their messages with their PA system. No need to be interrupted a movie we are enjoying for the promotion of inflight purchase though."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."

Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"
Pros: "As expected not overly done nor less of comfort and services. Only it was confusing that I had to move from international terminal to Domestic terminal due to first transfer was with in Domestic airport."
Cons: "I have purchased Japan Airline to travel but unexpectedly I had to deal with American Air for half of my flight. God help them please. It was hell from start to finish. Japan Air, I feel sorry for you that your alliance with American Air."
Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"

Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Wonderful Crew."
Pros: "The courtesy and professionalism is a 10."
Cons: "Checking in with Japan Airlines was a serious hassle. I had my e-ticket but they kept asking me if I had already paid. The flight was apparently overbooked but than at the last minute, they gave me and my girlfriend seats separated from each other. I sat in the back, she sat in front. The tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."

Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"
Cons: "Like all of it except lack of vegetarian option for food"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food, especially before landing"
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "It was anything very good, my trips on air are great. all flight attendant did good job.i got good slept well on flight JL 060.so I will choice Japan Airline next time. Thank you very much"
Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."
Cons: "Not much leg room"

Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"

Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "Short flight."
Pros: "During the flight the air hostesses we're constantly attending to passengers. Excellent flight."
Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."

Good

Good

Not a fan of given an iPad to watch movies. Trouble some to hold/place and eat.

We loved everything about this flight and Singapore airlines. We're new fans, we will be flying with Singapore airlines again next year! Highly recommended especially for the long haul flights.

If they had fruits as snacks that would have been nice

Singapore airlines has resumed after Covid selling premium services but not opened lounges to cater for the demand you cannot get a seat in their lounges and social distancing is non existent. I wouldn't pay for services you don't get so be aware.

Best airline ever for economy

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The business seats at B777-300ER was very uncomfortable for a long distance trip with duration of 14,5 hours."

Pros: "Crew could have been less rude"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."

Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."
Pros: "Everything is perfect, the crew services are very warm and professional, I strongly believe that Singapore airlines is the best in world as I tried many airlines but I don’t see like their them, I will strongly recommend and I will be their customer for any flight to Far East inshaallah."

Cons: "Way too cold"
Pros: "everything good"
Cons: "need new toilet"

The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest.

But Singapore Airlines made the time fly with friendly service right when you were getting hungry and pleasant assistance when requested. Thank you Singapore Airline Flight Attendants!!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Hot cabin. Chairs makes so much movement when the back of the chair where the folding table is moving. Chair movememt of the seatmeat is felt in the same rows of seats."
Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional"

I love Philippine Airlines but I hate Kayak ieagle agency. I’m unable to rebook a flight. Very inconvenient, will not purchase again with Kayak.

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and the movie selection was good."

Communication about he delay was mediocre, and the website did not have updated flight info for pickup."

Pros: "Std 14ish hr flight. Watched movies and slept."

Pros: "During mid flight, I called an attendant to ask for water and she arrived with one already without asking for it. She is nice and prompt."
Cons: "BUSINESS CLASS - After watching a YouTube video about PAL business class, my wife and I got sold to the idea of upgrading. We tried to do so on online check-in but the system wouldn’t allow us to change our seats. So we tried to buy the upgrade upon our baggage check-in but the attendant told us that we couldn’t for it is fully booked. We even tried to buy an upgrade to premium economy but was given the same answer. We told the attendant that it’s okay and thank you for checking. But as we were boarding, 3 people in front of us got upgraded to business class for free. This was very upsetting as there was no reason nor any explanation given to us. HOLDING GATE - On top of the above mentioned are the unorganized boarding. We were asked to scan our bags and our passports/boarding pass checked just to be at the gate. At the gate “holding area”, we couldn’t have water and there are no washrooms. If we wanted to have water or go to the washroom, we’d have to go out of the holding area and line-up and get scanned and our documents checked again. Mind you, this process was done already before entering the boarding area. PAL just redundantly did it at the gates. And there’s not enough seats for the waiting passengers at the gate. I saw people sitting down on the floor waiting for boarding. MABUHAY LOUNGE - My wife and I inquired about if we could buy access to the lounge but was declined. The reason given to us is that the lounge is only for business class flyers. There are no other lounge area in the Terminal 2. FOOD CHOICES - There are not a lot of food choices in Terminal 2. They have some for snacking but if you’re waiting or flight gets delayed, there’s a big chance that you’d end up eating the same food again. WILL I FLY PAL AGAIN? - My wife and I are frequent flyers. With all these reasons, until PAL get it together and do things the right way, we would not recommend nor fly PAL. Flight PR116 MNL-YVR July 22, 2018"
Pros: "I liked how convenient it is to use the mobile app to check-in. It was relatively easy to use."
Cons: "The only problem I encountered was the Apple wallet boarding pass did not push through using the mobile app. However, upon using the web browser, I was able to download the Apple wallet boarding pass. This seems like a bug in the app."
Pros: "Friendly filipino airport staff and PAL stewardess are friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Very long que at HK immigration"
Cons: "Add TV"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Nice crew. Delicious food"
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't moving fast enough The orange juice they gave me was bad (stale) - seemed like it's already past it's expiry date"
Pros: "Clean new planes, great service!"
Cons: "They do not have any entertainment such as a screen to watch something."
Cons: "Put us on separate seat...we should seating close"
Pros: "Entertainment, Meal options, Baggage Allowance, Plane."
Cons: "Slow check in, strollers can't be taken to the plane and are not left outside the plane at arrival this is extremely inconvenient for families with small children. The website is useless. You cant check your reservation or select a seat until 24 hours before your flight."
Cons: "The ticket was never processed! Hence, when I arrived at the airport, I was unable to actually fly. Really, really disappointing. I recommend that Kayak reconsider its association with "Flight Network Sales.""
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Truly a horrendous experience. Worst airline I've ever flown."
Pros: "Getting off the flight."
Cons: "More often than not, Philippine Airlines has been our airline of choice because we found their rates to be fair and flights direct and easy. Despite the fact that the PAL terminal was pretty poor, and the food on board was never really decent, we remained loyal to PAL for quite a few years. On our way back to Melbourne from Manila on June 17, Saturday, Colin, Hendrix and I were awaiting boarding at gate 10 for flight PR 209. Having flown with PAL from Melbourne to Manila (as well as with another airline from Manila to Manchester and back), we understood that the usual procedure was to allow passengers with infants to board first. Due to the lack of order (there were no clear queues in sight), Colin decided to ask 3 different PAL personnel if there was, indeed, a priority queue for people travelling with infants. ALL THREE PERSONNEL ASSURED US THAT THEY WERE NOT YET BOARDING AND THAT WE WOULD BE CALLED UPON PRIOR TO THEM LETTING ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANE. 2 minutes later, a PAL personnel appears with signage that reads certain row numbers and begins to call out to ALL PASSENGERS FOR BOARDING. Colin swiftly rushes to the front (me and baby in tow) and demands an explanation as to why we were told one thing but are watching them act upon something completely different. I wish I was joking when I tell you that the personnel just stared blankly at us and then carried on checking boarding passes. No apologies, no explanation offered. As soon as we boarded, Colin turned to the first flight steward he saw and asked for a complaint form and told this could ONLY be done online, to which Colin requested we be given the email/web address upon take off. The seats assigned to us were on the right most side of the aircraft, a window and a middle seat. As Colin was placing our bags in the overhead compartment, the steward called to Colin from across the aisle (past the 3 seats in the middle of the plane) to introduce the purser, Jolly Bello. Please note this was happening while people were also trying to get past and get to their seats -and Mr. bello called out across the aisle, "I heard you have a complaint??" to which Colin, baffled, replied "yes do you want to come over here so we aren’t shouting over these people?". Colin yet again told this purser what the complaint was about and was asked (verbatim) "so would you like to make a complaint against THEM?" Would the correct protocol not be to 1. Apologise for any confusion, miscommunication or poor service, 2. Take some responsibility and acknowledge the complaint and 3. Maybe come approach us AFTER TAKE OFF and not while everyone is trying to board the plane? We are no longer choosing Philippine Airlines."
Pros: "Trip was awesome, as per my nephews they enjoyed every bit of it, it was their first trip abroad"
Cons: "They liked everything, they gave a high rating.. perfect 10"
Pros: "The flight crew definitely took good care of us"
Cons: "1. Poor seat comfort. Very high density exactly same as with a budget airlines.2. No inseat entertainment system. 3 the worse boarding process : elites and general boarding are started simultaneously 4. Online check In is impossible:"
Cons: "Departure time of 10pm..... didn't leave til after 11pm. and then we are sent to Guam. Nowhere on my ticket said we were to go to Guam. HORRIBLE SERVICE"
Pros: "spacious seats, IFE and great meals"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Turbulent flight. Small washrooms."
Pros: "Very friendly, professional staff. Far superior service to US-based airlines."
Cons: "Why do we have to buy water? It's just water!"
Pros: "Courteous Staff altogether."
Cons: "Delays should have been posted earlier. Long lay-overs."
Cons: "Wish the seats were bigger."

New planes, competent pilots, friendly staff.

Layout and space in emergency exit row.

The worst kind of budget airline. To be honest....the plane was not that bad. Would have been good to have some food choices and some water. What was by far the worse is the passengers/customers that this airline attracts. Coughing and spluttering all over one another with no masks. Just disgusting. Pay for a better carrier and get a better class of passenger.

Pros: "Very smooth and easy process boarding and taking off"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "delayed landing because of chinese reasons"
Cons: "delayed 2 times."
Pros: "A nice experience overall. Flight was quiet so plenty of personal space."
Pros: "The crew are ok. They should find jobs with other, better airlines."
Cons: "Flight delayed on both legs. Delay management horrible, call centre was worse."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight early by more than 2 hours, with no communication. I therefore missed the flight. I was informed there was a flight that evening but they refused to move me as I had booked through an agent. Waited more than 6 hoursnin the airport for next flight and was offered only a meal voucher worth £4. Later flight was delayed, resulting in me missing my friends pre wedding henna party and arriving more than 8 hours late. Not a single apology given!"
Pros: "Except for a 1-hour delay, overall the flight was good, smooth and enjoyable. Loved the inflight meal. For the price we paid we got meal and 30kg baggage allowance, we thought that was just value for money. And they departed from KLIA and not klia2 which is more convenient."
Cons: "Flight wasn't on time to and from HKG."
Pros: "The staff were very kind, the seat had a great amount of leg room."
Cons: "There was no alcohol on the flight."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "getting in the plane. No working tablet. Poor food."
Pros: "Crews are nice."
Cons: "Seems like Malindo is starting to degrading the service quality. The flight I took before: they change the airplane to batik which was worse with no entertainment, smaller seat pitch, etc. I book Malindo for a reason and paid for what expected using Malindo!! If they had to change the plane they should've given better one or given back compensation to passengers! Now this flight, they didn't activate the entertainment till way later and turned off way too early. They didn't give any earphone as supposed to. Malindo's service has become bad."
Cons: "The airline"
Pros: "For the price that we paid, it included 30kg baggage and refreshment (orange juice, water, coffee, a slice of pizza and a muffin) - it was worth it. The legroom is spacious, the seat was comfortable and the cabin crew was awesome. Flight was on time, check in was acceptable (considering people travelling from Bandung has a lot of check in baggage due to shopping)."

Cons: "Got told luggage would go straight to bali from origin in Nepal. Waited at baggage check in jarkata just in case. Sure enough, our baggage comes out. Transfer to domestic terminal was almost impossible since we were given no information and our flight number changed completely. All of a sudden it was batik air not malindo, which has a completey different terminal. Will not be travelling with malindo again."
Pros: "Check in and boarding we're both quick and easy. There were unsold exit row seats on our flight and the flight attendants lets us change seats. The in flight meals were quite tasty."
