Pros: "All of the crews were polite and friendly, and the food was tasty."

Cons: "I feel like this is Japan Airlines’s chance to present some great actual Japanese food in flight and instead it was a tuna melt and macaroni salad. Just saying."

Pros: "Easy boarding. Very nice crew."
Cons: "I was unlucky and got the corner rear seat that had no window. Glad it was a short flight!"

Pros: "none"
Cons: "very poor communication of information"

Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."

Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints"

Pros: "New plane, excellent service both on the ground and air. Above average food."

Pros: "Very family friendly. Good entertainment system."

Pros: "Superb service from checking (Chicago) to arriving (Kaohsiung) I flew economy and there’s plenty of leg room. Meal selections are better then flying 1st class cross country in the US."

Pros: "I was randomly upgraded for the first 10 hours of my trip to Premium economy and it was amazing. Two big hot meals served throughout the flight and plenty of drink service. lots of leg room and could recline comfortably. Flight attendants were wonderful and very helpful. Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."

Pros: "Crew was really professional and friendly, I sat beside a mom with 2 kids and the crew really helped her in her needs and made sure we were all okay. Food was good and I loved the movie selection, watched all the Oscar movies I've missed."

Pros: "Very clean and modern aircraft. Staff were friendly and attentive. They provided directions and a guide for travelers transitioning from domestic to international flights. Strongly recommend Japan Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing, well done."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the view from the window was stunning."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg space; it would be nice if the entertainment system had usb charging available."

Pros: "JAL has always provided exceptional value for money and top notch service."
Cons: "Have taken several JAL flight the last 1 year and this flight was significantly worse than the last few. Especially the meals."

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: "JAL always have good services."

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."

Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Cons: "nothing"

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: "Crew very helpful and courteous"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The check-in was flawless and gave me accurate information about my luggage being checked all the way through. I had an overnight layover in Tokyo and they handled my luggage the way I expected."

Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."

Pros: "food"

Pros: "ANA was awesome as usual."
Cons: "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible.

Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"

Pros: "crew and food was great"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "N/A"

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:)"

Cons: "The seat's recline button was broken which meant having to sit for 12+ hours upright. Upon hearing that the seat was broken, the airline crew offered my mother a check for 100 SGD (14% of the ticket value) to be used on Singapore airlines (for the discomfort caused for over 50% of the flight time). They changed her seat from Seoul to Singapore. When I wrote to them about it, they came back saying they had offered her a seat change from LA to Singapore, and she had declined, which is absolutely false. When I called that out, they said, maybe they did not offer aisle seats (note that the broken seat was not aisle). So it just shows that they don't want to accept that they messed up. They even told me that despite their best efforts in pre-flight checks, certain defects only surface when the flight is in progress. Will never ever travel on this airline again."

Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."

Pros: "Food and good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"

Pros: "I liked there was an opportunity to bid on an upgrade"
Cons: "Our bid was rejected yet there were empty seats in premium economy. Our bid was within the recommended range. You certainly would not have lost money upgrading us."

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: "Excellent"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."

Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"

Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"

Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."

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: "Professional, courteous, high-quality all around from food, to service, to entertainment options. Singapore Airlines is first class all the way."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."

Pros: "i was told i miss my flight by 5 min and and they told me they wil book mw next flight and gave me a phone number when i called the ph9ne number i was given they asked ms 1400$ more and that was for a week latter flight when i asked for atleast refund or flight cridet they dniede me and wasnt even want talk to me."

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No tv monitors or any entertainment"

Pros: "Modern plane and great crew."

Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."

Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."

Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Good staff and service"

Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."

Pros: "They do their job well"

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."

Cons: "I did a web checkin for my flight number QR501 Hyderabad to Doha inspire of doing a web checkin I had to wait for 2 hours to get a boarding pass. Reason: There are two queues 1 For people who did a web checkin 2 people who didn’t do a web checkin The Qatar staff at Hyderabad experienced a technical glitch because their only system failed and there was no backup option. There was no apology from any of the staff. No one values the time of the people who chose Qatar making it a very bad experience overall"

Pros: "QA is really a five starts company , and I enjoy the trip always with qatar airways"

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "Some of the head phone are not working at all...."

Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."

Pros: "It was booked for my elderly parents and they were very pleased by the service they received."

Cons: "Baghdad is still an armpit. Doha is very nice. Kuwait not so nice. Qatar airlines has the best service I have ever had in 35 years of air travel."

Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."

Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"

Cons: "Few selection of food."

Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."

Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"

Pros: "Everythinగ"
Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "The Qatar stuff at Nairobi airport was very rude when I tried to ask for their help. She was extremely inpatient and showed us angry face. Totally disappointed and not expected from an airline claimed to be one of the best."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"

Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service. On time if not ahead Never lost a bag or got it delayed. Very diversified entertainment program Lovely staff Confortable and clean flights. And of course convenient price. Briefly, I love Qatar Airways and it is my first choice wherever I travel."
Cons: "So far nothing."

Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"

Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Price"

Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"

Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."

Cons: "The delay was awful Al marjan business class lounge in doha don't have good quiet room bed for sleeping"

Pros: "The head flight attendant in the economy cabin was nice, after a bit."
Cons: "My entertainment system stopped working and all they could offer me was something farther back in the cabin. As a Gold privilege member, I choose to sit at the front of the cabin, and yet the entertainment system was unavailable. I wish Qatar Airways could compensate me for my unfavorable experience."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Not sufficient food, less quantity or quality of food, cramped seat, there was a big guy sitting next to me, unable to even rest my hand"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work sometimes and the touchscreen was difficult to use."

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!"
Cons: "Seats too narrow in Economy."

Pros: "Cathay Pacífic always high standard"

Pros: "Every thing good expept passengers around me"
Cons: "Most passengers around me are a lot of Indian They are noises and the have kid, the kid crying all the time.This is is long flight amost 17 hours I can not sleep"

Pros: "Was good service onboard"
Cons: "They could be upgraded my whole itinerary and not just 1/4 of the trip"

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."
Cons: "The American films were good but they could be better."

Pros: "Nothing really. I am not gonna fly Cathay next time. Would like to have a wifi."
Cons: "The FA, no WI-Fi for a 15 hr trip."

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: "bathrooms were dirty"

Cons: "food was horrible. Please improve the quality and quantity."

Pros: "Everyone is kind!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare. BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."

Pros: "The food was great, 2 free bags checked, free food and free movies! Very nice staff all around amazing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Overall from accommodations to friendly staff my experience with the Cathay Pacific air is outstanding. I will recommend it to all of my family & friends! Thank you CPAir!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I typically like Cathay."
Cons: "Missed my flight from SLC to LAX due to Alaskan Airlines being unable to print my boarding pass in time."

Cons: "hong kong lkayover"

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: "I was place right next to the washroom. As soon as I sat down, I can smell the washroom ,which was not clean properly because of the washroom odor."

Pros: "Excellent Entertainment Choices. Wonderful Staff/crew"

Pros: "Clean lavatories"
Cons: "Always ran out of what we wanted for our meal, for both meals we didn't get our chosen meal. Ran out of snacks, not enough food. Water served from pitcher tasted moldy."

Pros: "Stewardesses were nice and accomodating"
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."

Pros: "Great service of the crew"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow. There's not much to move around. I'm a 56 year old woman weigh 107 lbs., otherwise everything is great."

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

Pros: "The crew on this particular flight were incredible. They went above and beyond on every aspect. The best service I've ever received on a flight and I fly 40-50 times a year."

Pros: "The snack was so good"
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."

Pros: "This plane was an Airbus 350. Seems to be the lated Airbus model. Business class section very much like the Boing 777, maybe a little better in some design modification of the seats."
Cons: "Difficult transit at the very large Hong Kong airport. Too much walking to got to document control to enter and leave Hong Kong."

Pros: "Belle and Rainbow were great hostesses"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Good us awful. Brought a lot if my own."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Passenger next me kept getting up and flopping down in the seat, waking me up."

Pros: "reclining seats."
Cons: "food."

Cons: "We were 40 minutes late leaving L.A. and I missed my connecting flight in Hong Kong. Had to wait two and half hours for the next flight to Bangkok!"

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."
