Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

Pros: "Bad handling and organization by JAL ground management. There was no support at the gate or clear leadership or direction of what needed to happen or what was to be done for the passengers They dumped everything in the Malaysian ground agents to handle without clear direction. Very poor service and no accountability"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"

Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."

Pros: "No... no... no...."

Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."

Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."

Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"

Pros: "The level of care and attention that was given to my comfort during the flight was extraordinary. Also the economy was much better than any economy i've ever come to expect from other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding I didn't know at first where to go to get to the gate. Having to exit and then re-enter the airport was a pain and further complicated my boarding. But that was not JAL's fault and is on SFO."

Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."

Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."

Cons: "Missed flight due to medical emergency"

Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

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: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."

Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"

Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"

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: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"

Pros: "The crew Service"

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"

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: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "Clean :)"

Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."

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 service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."

Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."

Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."

Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."

Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"

Cons: "Food is not that good"

Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."

Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"

Pros: "The upgraded seating."

Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."

Pros: "checking in at chicago ohare ord was a nightmare.there were only 12 of us in line yet the wait exceeded 1 hour , we watched as the airlines next to us processed well over 150 passenger's while the japan airline moved slower than snail sex. it was painfully beyond slow."

Pros: "The people, let's be honest, the Japanese just have a genuine humble way about them, where they actually derive pleasure from providing quality service. In short, they are better human beings, and having a flight with them taking care of me, is a sort of heaven"
Cons: "Food quality."

Pros: "The crew were cooperative and the supplies were good"
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable and the toilets were so dirty"

Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"
Cons: "Boarding felt like a standing cattle call. Some - not all - stews acted as though they were insulted to have to provide food and beverage service, as though they were too tired and/or impatient to deal w/ economy class."

Pros: "Entire crew members, food, drink, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic & would have been better if I could get a aisle seat as I requested otherwise I didn’t have to wake up too often my both side passengers!! We were few Indian passengers missing our Hindi movies..."

Pros: "The staff is friendly with attention to detail"

Pros: "Great experience overall"

Pros: "I have An excellent services from two of stewardess on the plane her names is Miyuke if m not mistaken short hair always smiles she is an asset made me comfortable and kiyeke if am not mistaken up hair she is always smiling and has nice conversation.

Pros: "service..service..service and ontime performance"

Pros: "Crew and service were top notch. Everything done efficiently and flawlessly. Food was good. Flight was smooth and trouble free,"
Cons: "Nine hours in tight confinement just cannot be fun. There is no way that great service can fix the problem of being kept in an extremely small and uncomfortable space. Business and first class are unaffordable, so there is no solution. I'd fly more if it were not so painful."

Pros: "Excellent food. Very nice service."

Pros: "In-flight service, in-flight entertainment, environment temperature"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and entertainment is great."
Cons: "The plane was a bit old, no bidet in the bathroom (the newer planes has it)"

Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."

Cons: "The crew were not as friendly and welcoming, especially to coach passenger like me. There were too many announcements and interruptions.

Pros: "stewards very polite"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable"

Cons: "On time would be better."

Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."

Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."

Pros: "The crew was really nice. The plane was clean and comfortable."

Pros: "Great crew But... Many wild children, loud babies. I was in seat with extra leg room so I had no space for my purse & carry on and had to store in overhead bin. After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."
Cons: "See above... Who didn't upgrade their seat. My items had to go into bin 3 rows back. Very inconvenient & very difficult to retrieve after landing. I will never pay the additional fee for extra leg room again."

Cons: "Having a reservation on Alaska for the first leg of the trip would have been nice. They didn't expect us, we had no confirmation number that Alaska recognized so we were denied boarding. How much else could have gone wrong?"

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: "Courteous, Professional Crew. Amazing Service."

Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."

Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."

Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."

Cons: ",also I had to wait for longer time again due to less people for wheel chair assist.."

Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."

Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"

Pros: "No problems at all!"

Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"

Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Pros: "Brand new and beautiful A350 aircraft, great service"

Pros: "Food is awesome and plentiful. Crew is great. Plentiful entertainment options."
Cons: "The economy seats are just not comfortable. The entertainment system is glitchy"

Pros: "Crew was good and friendly."
Cons: "Lesser layover time in Taipei."

Pros: "Food was the worse"
Cons: "Improve food that will be suitable for human beings"

Cons: "Delayed by two hours. Completely disorganized boarding process. Staff were not service oriented. Would not recommend China airlines to anyone"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good entertainment options."

Pros: "Excellence in crew's attitude, promptness in service, very courteous."
Cons: "A bit more bathroom diligence would have been nice, but the passengers seemed quite messy."

Pros: "Seat was ok. Service was timely"
Cons: "Excellent"

Cons: "China Airlines website does NOT allow you to choose your seat even thought I purchased my airfare well in advance."

Pros: "Food was a solid ok!"
Cons: "They cycled heating and cooling during the flight, but the heating can be a little too much and make the air difficult to breathe and felt really stuffed and dry in the space."

Cons: "I dropped my fork on the floor. The 1st crew, who did not understand Mandarin came back with salt and pepper,even I asked for the fork in English. I asked her again, but she impatiently told me each meal plate came only with one set of utensils."

Pros: "Flight attendants are nice, quite some new movies are available"
Cons: "Food is fine, but can be better"

Pros: "They used a more modern plane for the longer haul part of our two flights home from Bali and appreciated the slightly bigger seats for the longer flight. Good inflight entertainment options."
Cons: "Terrible food."

Pros: "I like the space between seats. A couple inches helps"
Cons: "Staff just not as friendly as last time on This airline. Audio earphones just doesn’t work welll. It’s double prong so you can’t use your own and there ear buds very uncomfortable and earphones from previous flight didn’t work well either. This really needs fixing. 12 hours this should be a big priority."

Pros: "Service and food is always great!"
Cons: "3 out of my 4 flights through China Air were delayed. This was strike 3. You know its not easy having to rearrange a pick up ride ever time your flight is delayed 2 HOURS. Once, twice, fine. But three times?! Ridiculous."

Cons: "Food was not as good as I would expect from China Air and they ran out of eggs for breakfast."

Cons: "They told me that when i get back to manila that’s the time they will deal with my luggage problem"

Pros: "Fly China airlines you won't be sorry"

Pros: "Again, great service. Food was very good, and enough leg room even with person in front pushed back."

Cons: "They damaged my luggage"

Pros: "I think it was overall great, and the crew was very nice."

Pros: "Plane and entertainment. The "family couch"."
Cons: "The flight attendants. With the exception of a couple they were very impersonal, and cold. Rushing through services, basically throwing food at you. They would get you what you needed, but always seemed to be a hassle. If it wasn't for the nice new plane and couch option I wouldn't consider flying them again. I was expextinf much better service from an Asian carrier."

Pros: "Boarding was disorganized"

Pros: "- Onboard entertainment - Meals were reflective of Taiwanese meals - the minced pork rice was yummy! - Crew was attentive and came by often to address any needs"
Cons: "- Little leg room in Economy class - Air conditioning could not be adjusted (but helped with ventilation)"

Pros: "Regular water and juice served throughout entire flight was much appreciated. Lots of movie options for those who cannot sleep."
Cons: "Seats so close together, man behind me kicking my seat in his sleep for 12 hours. No snacks in between meals. Hindu meal should be vegetarian but had meat. My request on both round trip flights for a window or aisle were not honored."

Cons: "The next phase in Taipei the following day was just the same circus as CA handed us (without clear information or announcements) off to any available carrier to get us to our intended destinations, again not communicating well; Turned over to Eva Air - who seemed to have the situation under control and knew how to communicate - loud and clear - to all customers - what we were going to be doing and when and why. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers)."

Pros: "China Air did a fine job overall. SFO TO Bali. The food was ok and the movie selection was a little short for newer stuff. But all and all for the price = good."

Pros: "they dont looked upset when you ask them for something"
Cons: "the crew didnt provide beverages on the 2nd meal service. something happened (meal tray cant be pulled out) that made them busy. so, they went ahead and offered coffee and tea. to my thinking, do they expect that people drinks only those. plus they gave customers on the other sections beverages"

Pros: "Good connection time"

Pros: "Airport lounge"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Overall excellent service"

Pros: "I got premium economy and I wasn't sure why, again!"

Pros: "I wish I could say something, but I cant."
Cons: "Flight was initally delayed 1 1/2 hours to depart at 1:00am it happens. Upon boarding, I noticed the planes legroom was close to none. Within 10 minutes of being on the plane the power shut off, lights out, air flow cut off. Lights turn back on although air doesn't and the captain re assures 10-15 minutes. 2 1/2 hours yes 2 1/2 hours later he says 10-15 minutes again and says the same skit explaining they fixed the problem. Plane turned off again. At this time it was close to 5am and I chose to take my carry on and head towards the front of the plane. The captain has no answers for the alarmed passengers, in which all they could say is if we step off tge plane we choose to leave the flight. Almost in the tone of a threat. We were all fewring our safety for the 9 hour trek over the pacifac ocean. After going back and forth for about 45 mins they finally said if you dont feel comfortable follow me and we will try and locate later flights for you all. 60 of us left the plane and ultimately got flights 12-24 hours later. Horrible experience, horrible communication, no appologies, and on top of that they did not send my bag with the correcr plane, in which I had recieved it 4 days later. My replacement flight wqs on EVA air. Much better airline in which I will never travel with China Airlines ever again."

Cons: "It delayed too long and lead to missing my flight from San Francisco to Boston, the line to immigrate was too long and just 1 hour connect flight due to the delayed in Taipei"

Pros: "The flight was fast. Seating super tight. Food was mediocre. But because flight was fast, didn't have to suffer tight economy seating for more than 11 hours."

Pros: "Checking In - Easy and Fast Staff - Spoke some English and business like. Entertainment - Good selection of movies and games."
Cons: "Seats are made for smaller passengers... if you are a larger frame, you will have a tough flight."

Pros: "turbulence not bad."
Cons: "Lady passenger arguing for 20minutes with 3 fight attendants about her luggage not being near her seat, because bins were full. she should have been kicked off plane. i kept getting bumped on right shoulder every 8 minutes by people walking up or down aisle. so, no sleep."

Pros: "Quiet cabin - no crying babies or toddlers"
Cons: "Food was terrible; will choose different airline in future for long haul trips"

Pros: "good entertainment options."
Cons: "food was not very good. The hot towels were cold. There was no one from China Airlines to help the 50 minute delayed passengers from the BKK to Teipei flight get through security and transfer to Teipei to SFO flight. It was very hectic with large crowds at security gates."

Pros: "Crew worked diligently."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online. Was within the 24 hours check in time."

Pros: "China Airlines has decent food menu and on-board entertainment. Overall a good flight experience."
Cons: "I just hated the frequent delays."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, no notice, made us go off site to explore other options, no solution, booked another airline"

Pros: "Seats were quiet comfy, great movie selection on a personal touch screen tv, delicious meals and drinks."
Cons: "Not enough toilet rooms for the amount of the passengers it caries"

Pros: "food and crew members were great."

Pros: "Crew ! Very quick and accomodating"
Cons: "Oh the veggies in the noodles was kinda overcooked but the noodles is delecious"

Pros: "Attentive staff, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, very cramped seating"

Pros: "I liked the blankets, food and movie selections."
Cons: "The cabin crew seemed to give full cans of beverage to the Chinese and people from Taiwan, but only graced westerners with a cup."

Pros: "Crews were nice ."
Cons: "Not serving enough water during freight."

Pros: "I got a chair with reclining foot rest. Yay!"

Pros: "Services were excellent from stewards to customer service rep on the phone."
Cons: "Felt kind a cramp. I guess this is normal for econo flight"

Pros: "Long slow lines at check in was very frustrating. Attendant pulled us out of line to bring us to kiosk but kiosk could not help us and we had to go back to the end of the now longer line."

Pros: "Staff is young and cute. Everything else, they need tto learn."
Cons: "Seating was horrible, my assigned seat, reserved two months before was given to some one else. And I got the shitties seat for this long flight which did not reclyned. imagin sitting there for a 10 hours plus flight. Food service and quality was horrible. The staff walks around never even offered water, not to talk about refillls with food. Connecting flight times were not adequate, Realising that I paid extra money to the ticketing site for the change of fligjts. Just bad first time experiece. I will never fly this airline again."
