Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Bad handling and organization by JAL ground management.

Pros: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."
Pros: "The staff helping to check in was amazing. There was an error which checking in at LAX, we didn’t have our seats assigned. Ali was able to get us seats together, and by a window at that! She was incredible and super helpful. I knew it would be a great flight just from her service at the beginning."
Cons: "I wish there was a paper that showed you options for food/drinks. The language barrier was a bit difficult at times but the crew was incredibly patience and made sure we got what we asked for."
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."

Cons: "would have liked more food options and recent movie selections"
Pros: "Loved everything including entertainment selection and all the snacks left out as self-serve throughout the flight. Left and arrived on time from JFK to Narita"
Cons: "I'm picky about food and preferred the food to Tokyo on ANA to JAL. However, I take some responsibility for not making a special request pre-flight. I will do so for trip home."
Pros: "Nice and quick flight, had a free space next to me on plane"
Pros: "The movies they offered."
Cons: "How long it took the flight attendens to come back and take trash and out trays for both of the meals. It made it super uncomfortable in the tiny space available. Also, not enough knee space, especially when the person in front of you puts there seat back. I flew with American Airlines on the way to Japan and I had plenty of room but I wish it was the same coming home."
Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "Everything! JAL employees go above and beyond to deliver perfect customer service with a genuine smile."
Cons: "Nothing! No complaints here"

Cons: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "Meals at good times during the flight, complimentary wine served, comfortable seats. Overall better than any other airline for economy class.

Pros: "Shortest travel time to Japan"
Cons: "OLD PLANES Touchscreens won't 50% of the time"

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: "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."

Cons: "The seats were not really confortable and the TV menu did not have enough English shows or new movies, even old ones within the menu would've been great. Also - this probably has nothing to do with the company but- there were passengers who took their shoes, even their socks out! It was disgusting"
Pros: "Entire crew members, food, drink, hospitality & aircraft."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."
Cons: "Unfortunately, premium economy is the only way to go, because economy class seats are very cramped and "locked" in the upright position (for a 10+ hour flight), and it's a bit pricey."
Pros: "- Friendly staff. - Excellent service and boarding easiness. - Kayak's excellent price."
Cons: "- Entertainment had limited movies. - Food could have more selection for business class. - Loung in Japan is not the greatest and overcrowded. - Boarding from Japan to KUL was very poor specially in packing people like sardine in the shuttle."

Cons: "Late boarding caused us to miss connecting flights."
Pros: "Overall comfort was good"

Pros: "Legroom is good, you don't need to recline the seat"
Cons: "Food wasn't the best"
Pros: "The ANA crew were very sweet and accommodating"
Cons: "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX. Seat selected at time of booking was not honored since selection has to be done on United Air's web site. Did not get the meal I ordered for the same reason. Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."
Cons: "Both flights took off late one flight was over an hour late I missed my connecting flights and was forced to take 2 additional flights instead of my direct flight The food is Japanese cuisine, if you are ok with experimenting and like their cooking. The flight attendants were not able to communicate with us in English regarding our missed flights"
Pros: "Incredible service"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye. Also I will be happy to fly ANA again, but I would not take a redeye flight on any airline unless I was in business or first class which I cannot reasonably afford at the moment."
Pros: "Excellent check in experience. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Meals were well prepared and tasty."

Pros: "Flight was very good - enjoyed meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Signage at Honolulu airport is unclear - -difficult to find connecting terminal"
Cons: "The crew were not as friendly and welcoming, especially to coach passenger like me. There were too many announcements and interruptions. Not sure why but it was unnecessary to have too many, can't rest or sleep nor continue with viewing the entertainment provided. It seemed like a tired crew this time. The food was not good."
Pros: "Great food on ANA flight from Malaysia to Tokyo."
Pros: "Great value, excellent food and entertainment"

Cons: "Very hard landing."
Pros: "ANA has one of the best friendly and courteous service. I was kept well fed through my flight and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "I wish the English announcements were not in so heavily thick accent and more understandable. Transfer from the plane to the airport is quite tedious when the plane is parked away from the airport. I wish they would make transferring carry-on more disabled friendly."
Cons: "United did not allocate to code share flight on correct date. I was rufused to be on the board at the ticket counter and ANA code share company ask to call to united 1-800 #. I missed the flight and ended up buying one way ticket from other air line with my own expense."
Pros: "ANA is always prompt, even when there are delays. The flight attendants are always kind and polite."
Cons: "Today's flight was delayed and set back arrival by twenty minutes."
Cons: "The food quality was slightly lower than that on the outboud flight. I ordered Hindu Meal."

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 friendly. Seafood pasta was good."
Cons: "I wish all airlines have a foot rest."
Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."
Pros: "I have bought air ticket a few months in advance. I have paid a lot after changing the flight schedule."
Cons: "I will not buy the air ticket from cheap ticket any more."
Cons: "Transit time is good for way too tight"
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: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Pros: "They treated you like you were important and really took care of my every need"
Cons: "Getting on a cattle car to go to another terminal and then get in line again to go on the plane"

Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "SIA service and food is always good. The flight went by quickly which is good."
Cons: "The entertainment system for the 777 did not have a touchscreen which I have been accustomed to on other SIA flights, but the main issue was the brightest setting for the screen was very dim. I think the screen is just old and not as bright as before."
Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"

Pros: "The serivce was amazing. Also it was clean and the food was great."
Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "Very comfortable great personal service. Smooth flight,on schedule."
Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."
Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"
Pros: "Lounge experience was excellent. Service on the airline in general was excellent. Food and drinks we're just great. I enjoyed the sleeper seat that I was in. Everything was super smooth and I'm so glad I flew with Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report"
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"
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Pros: "The entertainment 100s of movies & Shows The very good portions just right"
Cons: "Boarding is very efficient and well organized But when it is going to be an hour late the passengers should be told not stand there on lines with no information"
Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."
Pros: "Professional, courteous, high-quality all around from food, to service, to entertainment options. Singapore Airlines is first class all the way."
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall, the Singapore Airlines team are always professional and friendly. They pay attention to every detail and try to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. One of my favorite things about this airline is that snack and juice are readily available throughout the entire flight without bothering the flight attendants, say in the middle of the night. This includes fresh fruit and juice, which in my book is a huge plus. Their bathrooms are always clean and include extra cosmetic amenities."
Cons: "Sometimes I feel like the cuisine is a bit too Asian and spicy. I had the fish curry and paid for it later in the flight in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. Also I was disappointed that I could not continue the same movie on this flight, as my previous flight, despite both flights being Singapore Air and using the KrisWorld entertainment system. I think the movies should be the same on each flight. However, the wide selection was great and I watched something else instead and really enjoyed the music selection."
Cons: "Have no recommendations...everything was great"
Pros: "Great services considering the extraordinary conditions associated with continuing to provide services during the Coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Cons: "They did not ask me if I want food during the 12 hour flight. They just pass by me and did not give me food. The flight attendant could not speak English so they could not explain when I complained."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was excellent."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"
Pros: "It was the Badtz Maru plane"
Cons: "There were bulkhead seats that people were not allowed to move to even though most of the rows were full. The bulkhead row remained completely empty."
Cons: "Provide water service more often during long flights."
Pros: "Great friendly crew an staff. Comfy seats without packing you in."
Cons: "I wish EVA would tell people, especially overweight prople, to respect the space of thier neighbors and not recline thier bodies using part of thier neighbors space."
Cons: "Baggage claim took forever. I waited 45 mins for mine to show up."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "EVA graciously accept a name correction to my ticket where most of my name was correct but the first name wasnt. A big help. Unlike travelling in and out of China. So, i appreciated this help. Flying out at 2 am and arriving Taipei at 5 am was a good time choice too. Service on board was good. Lots of refreshments served. Nice plates used for meals in economy."
Cons: "Eva’s Air is cheap with drinks, whether water or wine. About a Dixie cup of each for a meal."
Cons: "It took 1 hour for checking in in CDG 1 terminal. I missed the next light because of the delayed take off. And they change my ticket to Thai airways which is the fastest from Taipei to next destination."
Pros: "We sat in the emergency row and had endless legroom. The blankets and pillows were good quality. Food was great! Crew was very attentive. Bathrooms were amazingly clean."
Cons: "We didn’t know how to access the entertainment."
Pros: "Flew with EVA 16 years ago to Hanoi, Vietnam and again in 2018 to Hanoi, via Taipei. Very professional, attentive, good food, little amenities that make a difference in the overall experience of traveling. Very clean bathrooms, even after a 16-1/2 hour flight to Taipei it was still clean at the end of the trip. Food was good and plentiful, wine, spirits, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages offered. Came around at least three times on the leg to Taipei with food and water and when I wanted more water they gladly made sure I stayed hydrated on such a long flight."
Pros: "The flight to Taiwan from LAX was miserable. It was so hot i sweated the entire 14 hours. Was told they cannot adjust it. Easier to get blanket to be warm no way to cool off"
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "Fastest service ever from Manila to Houston. Arrived earlier than ETA."
Cons: "The food was horrible. Everything served was with brown sauce. Not toomany choices."
Pros: "Service and landing were great."
Cons: "Too cramped and people who coughed the whole flight which isn’t airline’s fault. Wine wasn’t good at all."
Cons: "If flight attendant is sick, she shouldn’t work."
Cons: "Air stewardess should smile more. More movies in the in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was gracious and didn't bother my sleep to eat."
Cons: "The seats were hard and oddly shaped such that my legs and feet felt numb after a while. Not the way I want to spend 15h."
Pros: "EVA Air is consistent as the leg from Bangkok to Taipei. Flight was 30 minutes early that was great."
Cons: "Nothing of significance. Flight was full and just normal flight. Just a bit bumpy coming back."
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Cons: "I was stuck in a window seat with 2 handi capped women in the middle am Nd aisle seats. I felt trapped. I could not use toilet because these women had so many bags that it was all but impossible to get out of my seat. In an emergency i would have died. Bottom line. I would have died."
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."
Cons: "One was too warm"
Pros: "TPE-SEA had a much better crew and plane that was much newer and had good entertainment sets"
Cons: "The crew for the SEA-TPE were an unhappy bunch. If you did not speak mandrian to them, they simply ignored you. They were rude and made me feel like I was a second class passenger TPE-KUL KUL-TPE had no entertainment. Just the screen to share in the front of the plane. I wish I knew in advance."
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: "I like EVA because they were very kind."
Pros: "The crew The time of the flights"
Cons: "Food options were narrow Online seat selection wqs not allowed"
Pros: "Well fed, fast, bathrooms clean"

Pros: "Professional, efficient"
Pros: "I missed the flight , the Manilla crew worked wonders the service was/is excellent.. will never go on another airline!! Told every one how great,, your staff is can not believe service like this exists !!"
Cons: "15 hours in a cold cattle cabin , the seats hurt after sitting sitting sitting for 15 hours my knees are killing me.... killing me. the plane is huge , smooth, stewardess are great, the 15 hours are torture -the master torturers love the long long flight times -15 hours to NYC from Taipei -- I am guessing a 747 uses a lot more fuel,, but has a recreation deck usually ,, we can walk around ,,, would gladly pay --MORE!! Some engine manufacrturer will get efficiency from those 4 engines, let the plane (747) run on 2 engines once airborne . just hoping as it is --the seats are c lose together , 15 hours in hell is not good 4 the body.. pls get or find a way- love your staff -- EVA is a great great airline!!"
Pros: "Everything. They fed us and it was just a short flight."
Pros: "It was unexpectedly cute that the return flight was a Hello Kitty flight. This was a big part of my childhood and totally played on my nostalgia feelings. Along with the fact that everyone from the service desk to the flight attendants were very helpful and kind, the flight experience was great. The movie selection was modern, no complaints."

Pros: "easy to check in. like kayak service. Highly recommend .."
Pros: "No delay, helpful crew,nice foods"
Cons: "It was good to be with eva air.."

Cons: "Not a fan of crowded economy class flights"
Pros: "I got a few min sleeps"
Cons: "A day filled with econoy class travel is not my favorite thing."

Cons: "The food on this flight was inedible. Luckily I wasn't particularly hungry."
Pros: "Time punctual"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Great food, entertainment options and personal space"

Cons: "Love it"
Cons: "Delayed too much except that, everything was good"
Cons: "Better room in leg and width. Hotter food and tastier."

Pros: "Crew, food, entertainment were all very nice. 5 out 5."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of my location and seat"
Cons: "No wifi on a over 14 hour flight is ridiculous in this day and age. They didn't have wifi on both my flights. I would think twice before flying an airline so far without wifi."
Pros: "Cabot crew very nice an professional."
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat but I got stuck with a middle seat."
Pros: "Actual plane was in good condition and as comfortable as a plane can be. Very good selection of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude and made you feel that you were bothering them. Beverage offered twice in 15 1/2 hours. Beverages when available if you want to ask the flight attendant, but again, they were definitely put out when you asked them. Caroline wasn’t kept clean throughout the 15 1/2 hours- i’m accustomed to light attendance walking through the isles periodically to get customers garbage regular league so that it doesn’t build up."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very kind and helpful. I was very tired and was feeling a little under the weather. She checked in with me frequently throughout the flight to make sure I was well, brought me hot water to sip on, and just made sure I was as comfortable as possible. My regret is that I didn’t catch her name."

Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Friendly service on time flight"

Cons: "No extra blanket was available."
Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Up and down at the right time and place. Great experience."
Pros: "Great food (probably the best I’ve had on a flight) and a fairly good in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Short stop over"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it"."
Pros: "All was good until missed connection"
Cons: "Missed connection due to late arrival. CP switched us to AC. 7 hour layover"
Pros: "I liked the movie selection they had for entertainment—many choices. Most of the staff were very friendly, but there was a bit of a language barrier which made it a little difficult to ask for something. They are also attentive, so if you press your call button, you don’t have to wait half an hour until someone helps you."
Cons: "Most of the meals were awful. I barely ate on the flights (except the dessert), but how good can airplane food be really... The seats are pretty tight and uncomfortable. They are too upright, making it very difficult to sleep. On one of their planes, the seats didn’t recline at all. I recommend paying a bit more for extra leg room ($150) or flying business or first class even (for long flights)."
Pros: "Most of the stuff was regular flights"
Cons: "Even after explicitly asking them for Hindu vegetarian food they gave me chicken with the wrong label. I realized it after eating a bite. They should not have done this mistake."
Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"
Pros: "I received more than expected"
Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "PThe bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."
Cons: "The meals were not as good as on my previous flights"
Pros: "Airline staff were all helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "Excellent crew, great food, best steak I have ever had on a plane. Fantastic overall."

Pros: "watching movies and tv is excellent. Crew provides excellent service. The most comfortable seats."
Cons: "bathrooms were dirty"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "Airline staff so helpful and nice, sets had loads of space, I was seated at the back of the plane when they ran out of meals before our row, I said it's fine I'll just have bread rolls but she got me their staff meals yum, air hostess was so lovely"
Pros: "No issues with airline just other passengers. Plane was older model but very clean. Noticed flight attendants cleaning washrooms frequently. Meals were timely and quite tasty. Even though did not partake, liked how there were snacks available."

Pros: "Friendly, good food with snacks, incident free. Thanks"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"

Cons: "Late departure due to storms results in late arrival. Seat didn't work as expected. USB charger didn't work and interfered with the headset."

Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"
Pros: "Food, games attendants were helpful"
Pros: "The in flight services were very good with very professional flight attendant."
Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the plane was not delayed...pretty impressed by that because I fly a lot and some of the worst offenders in flight delays have to be ones that fly within the USA. Boarding the plane was very organized."
Cons: "Food...it could have been better....but you do get feed often."
Cons: "Blankets were very thin, although clean felt reused. Headphones were poor which meant if Someone in a near seat was talking couldn't hear through my headset despite volume being turned up."

Cons: "The baby meal is ideal for infants between 6 and 12 months of age"
