Cons: "No additional comment"

Pros: "I had a nice exit row seat so that was nice"
Cons: "The food was not good and there also wasn’t enough of it which is really bizarre for an international flight that’s 14 hours long"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The meal choices were great !"

Pros: "they assisted my aunt very well all through out her flight"

Pros: "I did upgrade to economy premium which is why the flight was very comfortable. Would not have upgraded except I made a mistake in the currency conversion and thought the upgrade was cheaper than it was."
Cons: "Did not really like the chef's cuisine as opposed to the one on my outward flight to Japan which was excellent."

Pros: "Seat in biz on 380 was comfortable. Crew good not great."
Cons: "Food terrible. Seat maintenance not good. Armless and remote didn't work properly. Boarding needed work. No biz priority."

Pros: "Flight experience in JAL is excellent."

Cons: "Missed flight due to medical emergency"

Pros: "Crew was great, just like Japanese specific hospitality. Crew clean up toilet and keep refilling toilet supply. Airplane was nice and clean. Entertainment equipment was up to date."
Cons: "I could not log in in JAL website using mileage account. They said it has been maintanance mode for a while and could not tell when it would be completed. I tried a month later but the problem was not solved. They foward any problems and inquiries to reservation center but calling the number won't find anyone to talk. Always they put me on hold for hours and never reached anyone. I have food allergy and tried to request for special meals but the option was not there under my eticket number as described in their website. They say the option may not be available because I purchased my ticket from 3rd party, not from JAL or it was code share flight. Very inconvenient. I had to skip 2 meals out of 3in leaving for Japan. I got very hungry at the end of the flight...."

Pros: "Inspire of bad weather, the pilot executed a perfect landing !"

Pros: "Excelent good service.Staff are friendly."
Cons: "Almost i like everything"

Pros: "Food was excellent and service came frequently. In-flight entertainment was amazing."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable for economy, but that's about it. Unfortunately, everything else ranged between mediocre and okay. For non stop to Japan, I'd rather fly ANA."
Cons: "The whole entire class system that they are beholden to as if we're still living in feudal Japan. Swiss & Lufthansa serves more meals and at higher quality than JAL. The drinks were also blah. JAL focuses more on their Business Class and First Class Passengers. Even their luggage comes in first."

Pros: "Premium comfort seats are worth it especially on longer flights; totally recommend. Plum wine is a great add to menu"
Cons: "You need to call to reserve seat. Then was told I could only upgrade at the airport and not on the phone, risking to loose the few available premium comfort seats. Old movies. Poor red wine. Food still just okay."

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 crew,service and great food."
Cons: "It was little bit warm during flight. There were several other passengers that c/o the temperature being too warm."

Pros: "service was excellent. Seating was OK in spite of it being economy."
Cons: "One meal was sufficient in quantity, mediocre in quality. Other meals and snacks were skimpy in frequency and quantity."

Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."

Cons: "Plane was very hot"

Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."

Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."

Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Food can be better."

Pros: "Friendly and respectful staff, great meals, tasty!"

Pros: "Everything bad"
Cons: "Bad customer service, I don't speak English good , can't understand them jet blue"

Pros: "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
Cons: "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."

Pros: "Very good premium economy seats and airline service was excellent - highly recommended"

Pros: "on time and excellent service"
Cons: "a bumpy ride compared to our flight from NY to Japan"

Pros: "Staff was great and plane was clean"

Pros: "The most polite and attentative flight attendants and great food options."

Pros: "Very professional staff, on time schedule and a beautiful plane. I would give them 20 stars if I could. It puts US airlines at shame."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Same thing as above"

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: "Overall flight was comfortable and staff was friendly."
Cons: "No details were provided about the food on offer. I didn't know what I was eating and no options were provided"

Pros: "The flight staff was excellent on my flight back to JFK. They were very attentive and kept a smile. There was never a time where I felt uncomfortable. There was open seating on the flight and the staff allowed passengers to relocate for increased comfort. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "The food on my flight was just ok. Going out to Japan the food was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I was a little disappointed on the way back."

Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."

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: "Very attentive and polite staff. Was given a free upgrade as well, very much appreciated."

Pros: "Premium Economy had good seating space and leg room."
Cons: "No wifi access"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Food was really good!!! It was way"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Not a lot of vegetarian options"

Pros: "Great service. Great seat."

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."

Pros: "I loved the service, the toothbrushes in the bathroom, the cleanliness of the bathroom throughout the flight, the snacks, and the kind flight attendants. This has been my best experience flying to the US from Asia! I would love to take Japan Airlines again as I was incredibly impressed by their services."
Cons: "The lack of quality movies and the way it was organized on the screen. They could organize movies and TV shows by categories instead of one big movie section."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "If they could serve a light snack would be good"

Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"

Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."

Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Very cramped seats"

Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"

Pros: "Crew , announcements were restful , not loud and blasting like some airlines"
Cons: "Nothing Singapore Airline is Super Lufthansa food lousy , late leaving Kuala Lumpur, missed our connection assigned to a later flight, running to catch rescheduled time and changed gate."

Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"

Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."

Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."

Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."

Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"

Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."

Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."

Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"

Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."

Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."

Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."

Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"

Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."

Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"

Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"

Pros: "Crew is big on service and being true professionals. Always smiling and being attentive"
Cons: "AC works when wheels are up and engines kick in. So its stuffy whilst on the ground"

Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."

Pros: "The crew, the food and the comfort was fantastic. I was in economy and even with a full flight I was still comfortable."
Cons: "It would have been nice if wifi was free considering it was such a long flight"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."

Pros: "everything great, every time again"

Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."

Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."

Pros: "Everything, got to love how smooth those A380s are, plus the service and food is impeccable. Also so much entertainment!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."

Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."

Pros: "I loved the touch of luxury, even sitting in the economy , the hot towels, the good food , attractively prepared , the free wine and the courtesy of all the team. This was my third time flying with Singapore Airlines and I hope not the last time. The big plane flew so quietly, it was a wonderful flight."
Cons: "Like in all airplanes in economy the seats are too close , but when you cannot afford to fly differently it was okay, there was at least leg room."

Cons: "The forced checking of bags of anything over 7kg, in spite of size, is ridiculous. Have now been waiting for over an hour at JFK waiting for my bag when it was small enough to keep in the overhead bin. I fly internationally once a month and never have to do this. A complete waste of my time."

Pros: "The economy cabin had less oxygen than the premium economy and better. I could not breath with the poor air circulation and had to stand in the front of the 14 hour flight to breath."
Cons: "Oxygen"

Cons: "More movies."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "More movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flying a different airline would have been better"

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were rather sparse (compared to other airlines I've flown in the past e.g. Singapore Airlines/Qatar/Emirates). However, everything else was pretty good. The bathrooms were maintained throughout the flight and I appreciated the water bottle so I wouldn't have to keep waiting for the little trays of drinks to come around."

Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All was ok"

Pros: "Never flew with them before. Was better than expected. Very nice!"

Pros: "I have visited Taipei three (3) times. It’s a beautiful place to visit."

Cons: "Eva’s Air is cheap with drinks, whether water or wine. About a Dixie cup of each for a meal."

Cons: "The departing flight from Taiwan was delayed so our arrival to jFK sa late."

Pros: "stewardesses nowhere to be found...food lousy...late also..."

Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "Narrowed sits."

Cons: "Tasteless food, mediocre movie selection"

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable, not enough room for knees/legs"

Pros: "Clean plane, super friendly crew, fast check-in and boarding. Extra points for supplying great vegan meals."
Cons: "My only note if to add a protein to the vegan meals. Tofu or beans of some sort would've been a great addition."

Pros: "The actual flight experience was great."
Cons: "My bag is still gone because they wouldn't return it to us after the flight and there are items that I need."

Cons: "Long wait to get to jfk terminal"

Pros: "crew was very professional, boarding was not chaotic at all! food was pretty good."
Cons: "Not a big selection of movie or TV shows for such a long flight"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Movie selection"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I was not well throughout the entire flight and they went out of their way repeatedly to make sure I was as comfortable as possible, including giving up two of their own crew seats to me for most of the 14 hour flight from Taipei to New York. The crew also made sure that the bathrooms were kept stocked and cleaned. This is something you don't see enough of in other airlines where the bathrooms become disgusting by around mid-flight on long-haul flights. The entertainment systems are modern and designed well for practical use, unlike some other airlines that still have many or all controls situated on the armrests. They use quality touchscreens which control everything including the overhead light and attendant call button. I also like the fact that I could check 2 bags and select my seat without any fees unlike too many other airlines are doing today."
Cons: "While the entertainment systems themselves are great the entertainment choices are not. They have very few New Releases and don't seem to update them at the beginning of the month compared to many other airlines, such as Cathay Pacific. On long flights this is one thing that should be given more attention."

Cons: "One crew member was so rude to me, Then my husband tried to lodge a complaint at the service desk and the manager was rude to him about it. Food is gross. Crew didn’t offer enough drinks or water for the length of flight. Economy seats are tiny and cramped."

Pros: "i sat on the exit area and since the plane is not full i have all the seat on my row it means more legroom for me."
Cons: "yes, i have a unlimited legroom on my seat and no one is sitting beside me. later after taking off i notice something poking on my left arm, and i checked it was a feet of a passenger behind me. like wtf hello im also a passenger here. passenger behind me are very inconsiderate and insensitive. the crew/staff are perfect just the passenger behind me made it worst. (flight br0030 oct 9 2017 arrived at 10:30 am )"

Pros: "The flight is on time. The staff is wonderful. The seats had good legroom. Overall I had great experience flying with EVA"
Cons: "The food is mediocre at best. I wish there was more movies to choose from."

Cons: "No peanuts or chips in between meals"

Pros: "Pros: Multiple vegetarian options (Oriental option was very good) Metal utensils Thick blanket USB outlet for each seat Multiple serves of water throughout the flight Receptionists were nice Multiple amenities in the restrooms"
Cons: "Cons: Restless flight attendants (got stepped on the foot and no apologies) Flight attendants' English abilities were questionable (when I asked for a drink, they said "wait a moment" without further explanation. I think what they meant to say was "I don't have that on the cart right now, it will be delivered later." This happened multiple times, but one time I didn't even get any response. But then again, all they said was "you need to wait" in Chinese also so maybe they are just not polite in general) They could have had better movie selections Both flights were delayed"

Pros: "Checking and in-flight staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "The flight delay which caused passengers to rush for the connecting flight to the US in less than 40 minutes. Barely made it. Unnecessary stress for fear the checked-in luggage did not make the connection."

Pros: "Friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Lack of USB ports"

Pros: "I like overall!"
Cons: "Nothing!!!"

Pros: "The crew The time of the flights"
Cons: "Food options were narrow Online seat selection wqs not allowed"

Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "From phone customer service and ground staff to flight attendants, service is among the top. Accommodating requests for special seat. Also crew actively monitors the condition of the lavatories and keep them clean."
Cons: "The food is just ok. Compared to Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific, their food is less exciting. Very stingy with wine (half of a mini plastic cup and takes another round before refill). Those who are on carb free diet should make a special request prior to travel as their food is very heavy on carb and light on protein."

Pros: "They make 15+ hours of flying feel incredibly comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Great customer service, amenities and comfortable flight."

Cons: "It seems that not enough refreshment being served for a flight starting from home port."

Pros: "Responsive flight attendants to requests for water, drinks, snacks. Great movie selections. Clean washrooms."
Cons: "Online reservation has no low salt option. Congee was too salty."

Pros: "blankets and pillows provided three meals nice customer service staff members spacious"

Pros: "Service was great but would have prefered more drink choices. The food cart came around on a schedule. Attendents were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "We were upgraded from economy to business. The leg room was improved and so was the service."

Pros: "Great airline, especially for a long flight. Would def use it again."

Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
