Airline reviews

Pros: "crew was excellent!"

Pros: "Economy was surprisingly comfortable. Boarding and deplaning were very quick."

Pros: "Was able to get to get to Narita Airport."
Cons: "Okay and not any issues."

Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
Cons: "Not one thing."

Pros: "Flight was typical."
Cons: "No direction for the connecting flight and no help to understand the connecting flights."

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Pros: "33" seats"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Nothing. This company deserves its reputation for excellence."

Cons: "No additional comment"

Cons: "They didn’t offer a vegetarian meal option in flight, but there was enough sides that it didn’t really matter."

Pros: "I really got a good deal on my trip's cost, and for the price, all the comforts of a top-quality airline were there. I especially appreciate how helpful and friendly the airline staff were."
Cons: "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Food was awful. Huge hassle having to clear immigration pick up bags and check in again in Shanghai."

Pros: "Everything ! Makes me what to travel to Japan more."

Pros: "Check in early and easy.... Bags straight through to Sydney... JAL... What other airlines should aspire to."

Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints"

Pros: "Quick efficient boarding. Smooth flight."

Pros: "Fast and eady"
Cons: "Couldn't pick seating or check in online so I was separated from my husband"

Pros: "Great flying on JAL...such great service and sweet attendants. US carriers could learn a lot from the Japanese carriers...they actually make it enjoyable and easy"

Pros: "As expected not overly done nor less of comfort and services. Only it was confusing that I had to move from international terminal to Domestic terminal due to first transfer was with in Domestic airport."
Cons: "I have purchased Japan Airline to travel but unexpectedly I had to deal with American Air for half of my flight. God help them please. It was hell from start to finish. Japan Air, I feel sorry for you that your alliance with American Air."

Pros: "The flight from Jakart to Japan, Japan to Chicago, was not a problem. Although thr food was typical plane food."
Cons: "My brother and his wife had to wait 12 hrs for plane delay,just to hear that AA canceled all flight for that date. The crew told my brother and his wife to wait for another12 hours which is the next morning, for next flight. My brother decided to just take a rental car to KZO, and was going to just take their luggage from the airline, but the AA crew would not let them did so, and was really rude. It was very traumatic experience for the both of them and other passangers of how bad they treated this plane delay/cancellation issue. One passenger with baby was having a panic attack, but nothing was done. So far, no compensation, or apology email has been sent. Will never take this airline anymore. We are done."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."

Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent and the premium economy seat was very comfortable and accommodating. The choice of food from the variety menu was also delicious."

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: "Services, the Care and the Concern!"

Pros: "Entertainment system"

Cons: "Food served 40 min after special meals"

Pros: "Staff on board were lovely."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."

Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."

Pros: "got us there, efficient and effective crew."

Pros: "Lots of movie and game options"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"

Pros: "Singapore is #1 in my books. So glad I could get on their airline. The flight was super. The economy cabin was really nice and comfortable. I especially liked all the adapter plug outlets to power my equipment. I just can’t say enough good things about the cabin crew. The Stewardess were very attractive in their uniforms and make-up, not like the old maids United and American has. The cabin crew were extremely helpful and nice. The service was impeccable. The meals were actually pretty good. Course all the alcoholic drinks available was nice. A person could get wiped out pretty easy if not drink responsibly. But not a good idea to drink much cause of the aftereffects after the flight."
Cons: "The headset ear plugs left a lot to be desired. I need to bring my own good set to enjoy the vast selection of music and shows available. My number 1 complaint was the outside row seat armrests would not move up. This makes getting out of the seat into the isle much more difficult than it has to be. Why does it have to be stationary?"

Cons: "Same price as Singapore airlines but it's a budget flight - silk air"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Best service"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Pros: "The bag with socks and toothbrush with paste was a nice touch. The flights operated on time! The seats were fairly comfortable for coach class."

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""

Cons: "I wish there was air conditioning. It was very warm ok the plane."

Cons: "Extremely bad service at the ticket counter. Really disappointed, really disappointed"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Plane was okay. Nice big screen"
Cons: "Crew was ok"

Pros: "I paid $190 for extra legroom for an economy seat by an exit door, however the remote for the entertainment screen encroached an inch on the already VERY narrow seats - I'm six foot three and 215 pounds and both hips were in full pressing contact against the sides of the seat - TOO NARROW!"

Pros: "Cathay Pacífic always high standard"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food was not good"

Cons: "Delay flight, slow"

Pros: "Familiarity with Cathay Pacific procedures"
Cons: "The airplane seemed a bit outdated. A WiFi option would have been more pleasant. Crew spoke only English, not the classic Cathay Pacific experience to HK."

Cons: "Both the USB and headphone Jacks were busted. Just had a bad seat this time."

Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent in carrying iut their work and responsibilities. They were friendly too."
Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."

Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"

Pros: "Except the end. I’ve been waiting for my luggage for over 30 mins."
Cons: "Waiting for my luggage"

Pros: "The crew was totally professional, the food was good, but the passengers were horrible, which is not Cathay Pacific’s fault."

Pros: "Nothing really. I am not gonna fly Cathay next time. Would like to have a wifi."

Pros: "Cathay Pacific offers terrific service and decent food. The entertainment selection was good. Sitting in economy is tough for 14.5 hours unless you’re in a pod."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped, not a lot of legroom. The overhead bin for the middle row in aisle 64 is smaller than other bins."

Cons: "I remember Cathay pacific having nice planes, but I guess things have changed. Plane, bathrooms, everything was downright dirty. Basically the only thing Cathay Pacific has going for it is direct LAX to HK, but that's it. I will try to avoid Cathay in the future"

Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."

Pros: "watching movies and tv is excellent. Crew provides excellent service. The most comfortable seats."

Cons: "Customer service is mediocre, nothing specials about their food. You have to ask for snacks on 13 hours flight."

Cons: "Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Cathay representatives automatically re-booked my connecting flight to Taipei assuming I would miss the connection. This was not the case. I was able to get to the connecting gate on time. Cathay representatives in Hong Kong were rude and unhelpful in re-issuing my boarding pass for my originally scheduled flight to Taipei."

Pros: "hospitality is very good.comfortable journey."

Cons: "Plane seemed a bit older for an international flight. Not much legroom, poor entertainment options no games and there were no adjustable air vents."

Cons: "The flight was freezing, blankets were worn and dirty, floor was dirty, seats were dirty, food was extremely basic."

Cons: "Water and soft drink didn't serve very often"

Cons: "Seat back was broken and could not recline at all during a 13+ hour flight."

Cons: "food."

Pros: "Overall concern about being on time!"
Cons: "Service could be a bit more friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The air steward/stewardesses were very polite and their service made the flight very pleasant. Kudos to the team on board. For everything that was negative about our flight, the onboard crew do live up to Cathay's reputation of quality service."
Cons: "A passenger was coughing severely throughout our 12-hour flight. Albeit he had a mask, but his poor health made us worry as we were in confined space together for an extended period of time. In addition, I do not think he had changed his mask which a surgical has a useful lifespan of approximately 3-5 hours with his level of intensive use. The toilet cleanliness was poorly maintained throughout the flight. It could have been cleaned more often. The onboard entertainment was very dated. New movies would be better appreciated. Now comparing you to SQ, but you faired worse than PAL which was a disappointment to us. We had expected you to perform better. The uniform design looks dated. It looked like something from the 1980s. It's time to keep up with the times."

Cons: "Ran out of several food and beverage options."

Pros: "The food was great and the service was good as well."
Cons: "They did not give us instant noodle when we asked for it and the seats in Economy did not have foot rest in front like Singapore Airline."

Pros: "Great check-in with Weimao, if I remember right. Got through security fairly quickly. Boarding was fine, a long way to the back . . ."
Cons: "The worst earphones I’ve ever used. They fell out at least 100 times while trying to watch Dumbo. There seemed to be reasonably good programming, but I wasn’t going to continue with those earphones. My ears were sore after trying many ways to get them to stay in my ears."

Pros: "The airplane is clean all the time."

Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "I wish seat is more comfortable and I wish updated movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At least nicer flight attendant and better service"

Pros: "The seats reclined farther than any I’ve ever experienced (aside from Business or First Class). Attractive, friendly, and patient flight attendants. Very clean planes."
Cons: "A better movie and music selection."

Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "Food needed salt, wasn’t very tasty"

Pros: "The movies and food"
Cons: "I was seated at the exit seats next to the wall. I feel the seat was more small there. My body hurt so much."

Pros: "Food, entertainment OK"
Cons: "China Airlines is obsessed with weighing carry-on luggage. They weigh it when you check your bags, and they weigh it again at the gate. What I am I supposed to do at the gate? Throw my stuff away?"

Cons: "The armrests don’t go up. Huge problem for kids trying to sleep on an overnight flight!"

Pros: "The air line reported 2 of my luggages as delayed and I still have not heard news on my 3rd missing luggage"
Cons: "How can u loose a luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible experience. 3 hours on tarmac, no hotel, lost a night of sleep. Booked with United and am waiting to hear back from Kayak for my refund. Kayak did not impress me at all either, very poor communication. Still no email acknowledging the refund. Please contact me so this can be resolved and I can stop stressing. Email is best since I have another flight."

Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "Seatbelt was too short"

Pros: "The food they served was very good."

Pros: "The service, the food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."

Pros: "I like the boarding because they went by zone. I also like the food and drink that was provided."
Cons: "I didn't like the restroom it was too small to go number 2 in."

Pros: "traveling with a child on long haul CI's family couch is the top choice."
Cons: "none."

Pros: "Flight is on time. Crew team is polite and smiling. Boarding is smooth."
Cons: "Food is so so. As always , there is many carry on items in Asia flights and not enough space to put."

Pros: "Friendly Movies"

Cons: "Appreciate blankets and pillows provided as well as complimentary wine"

Pros: "Super nice service from the crew on the flight. And the young woman at the check-in counter in San Francisco was terrifically friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was just slightly delayed leaving in both San Francisco and Taipei. But the headwinds (certainly no fault of China Airlines!) made us 45 minutes late in Taipei, making us a little anxious about making connections, especially when we saw the long line to x-ray baggage going from one terminal to the next."

Pros: "Footer rest. Promptness around food and boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment selection isn't diverse."

Cons: "Seats are bad"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful flight attendants!"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for the meals... No snacks available for in-flight purchases... No menu of beverages available..."

Pros: "The flight was at the end of Thanksgiving weekend and was completely full, but the check-in, boarding, and in-flight service were all efficient and attentive. Food was pretty good, and the economy fares were very competitive. First time on CA, and would definitely use them again."
Cons: "One rude gate agent at SFO named Lisa."

Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff. I appreciated the extra leg room."
Cons: "I order an Indian vegetarian meal. No salt, no taste. So I didn't eat much on the plane"

Pros: "Good staff, new planes, polite and efficient"

Pros: "better food"

Pros: "Lovely gracious Staff."
Cons: "One negative employee. Not so comfortable seat on new plane."

Cons: "Food Crew"

Pros: "60% full flight with empty seats New aricraft with better design"
Cons: "Landing time about 9pm local time"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Pros: "over all good"
Cons: "all good"

Cons: "$115 fee per surf board"

Pros: "good leg room, excellent food, service in Economy better than I've had in some other first class."
Cons: "A350 seat cushions are a little short for us tall folks."

Pros: "Flight was delayed which made me lose my connecting flight to austin. At the counter I was told that they had rescheduled but that I was late. I was late because customs took long and the flight from Taipei was 30 minutes late. So it's not like I was wasting time. I did not appreciate that the blame was placed on me in the way the counter people communicated with me. I noticed that the counter woman, and the supervisor did not speak to me at all. Not even to say "let me find out" or "sorry for the inconvenience" but both did speak to other customers that were of Asian Descent. They communicated both in English and Chinese. The young woman that booked the flight for me (different one from counter woman) was decent and attentive. Sherry who was the third woman I dealt with when I needed to sort the baggage issue was very attentive even explaining to the supervisor why It was the second time I was back at their offices. She went out of her way to make sure I saw my bags delivered to the UA luggage. But again, I am very disappointed and can't help to notice that other passengers received basic cordial treatment when I was blatantly ignored."

Pros: "Enough legroom & space in economy"

Pros: "Special meal options. Thank you"
Cons: "My meal should have been Hindu/vegan, but was Indian/carnivorous. More visits from crew with water would have helped avoid dehydration."

Pros: "No issues, no delays, food and services on par."

Cons: "Delayed one hour ..."

Cons: "Boarding at SFO was confusing since attendance gave wrong information so that we kept sitting to wait for our turn. And it ended up kind of disordering. Airline needs to improve this small process while customers waited for so long to board."

Pros: "Good Service and very comfortable business class seat"

Pros: "Very good service.on a scale 1 to 10,I give 10 point. Keep up the good job. Thanks"

Cons: "I could barely fit into the seats since they were so small. Made the long flight even more uniquecomfortable."

Cons: "It catered to our unique (Muslim) food and satisfied our needs. They paid special attention to my physical needs that required a wheelchair. The cabin crew were especially helpful. Thank you!"

Cons: "Food and seats were mediocre at best. Two of the flight attendants that we had the displeasure to experience appeared irritated and when asked for a glass of water we had to wait 30 minutes (after asking three times). On top of that, once we arrived to Tokyo they lost our luggage. We kept phoning the Tokyo desk, but then the airline went on strike and our calls were left unanswered. Japan Airlines, which handles all baggage for all carriers in and out of Narita couldn't do anything either. When they were finally operational I phoned again for two more days with no offer of compensation for additional clothing that we had to buy. Finally on the 7th day they indicated they found the luggage and it never left SF!"

Pros: "business class cabin was one of the best I've been in. excellent seats and entertainment"
Cons: "business class lounge in SFO needs a lot of work."

Pros: "Service, Seat, food, and movies."
Cons: "having to get up and ask for more beverages"

Pros: "The crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food needs a little bit of variety"
