Airline reviews

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: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."

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: "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."

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: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Food was fair, not great."

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

Pros: "Good quality food. Between-meal snacks. Great selection of media entertainment. Convenient power available at each seat including USB right in front of you. Many handy pockets in front of you for storing various items."
Cons: "Little surprised that the attendants were a little difficult to understand in English. I imagined their English would be pretty good."

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

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: "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: "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."

Pros: "Went premium economy for such a long flight- NYC to Tokyo- to Sydney. Seats were great as was crew and everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

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: "The snack stand near the bathroom area during the long flight is a nice touch."
Cons: "Staff wasn't helpful for neither help us to check in earlier so we don't have to wait in the lobby for 4 hours nor getting two seats together for my wife and I. They apologized but don't think they felt sorry AT ALL."

Pros: "They arrived 30 minutes early!!"

Cons: "I was a bit skeptical about arriving at 5am, but other than feeling a bit sorry for the person who picked me up - I could maximize my time in Japan. I love flying with JAL!"

Pros: "- spacious - great service - good breakfast"
Cons: "- middle seat. - just sandwich for dinner"

Pros: "The cabin felt more spacious and bathroom was clean. Arriving Haneda Airport was much convenient for me."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Staff was very warm and accommodating. Flight was smooth"

Cons: "Boarding could have followed through with the row system rather than everyone all at once."

"You can't check in now because it's a US flight, so it's only 24 hours". "You can't check in now because of visa documents something you have to check in at the airport". None of this was written down, or even satisfactorily explained when I tried to understand what was going on. Next time I'll fly Asiana on the hope they have a better online seat selection system that doesn't involve bizarre US checkin policy."

Pros: "Comfortable, easy, great service."

Cons: "Entertainment is dated - not much options and both videos and songs are not the latest. This can definitely be improved with more options"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not speak English so it was hard to communicate with him.

The only exit access was passing the person next to her which is what she was trying to avoid."

Pros: "Lot of space for legs and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nobody could find my reservation for a special meal and I ended up eating nothing"

Pros: "The planes were very clean and in good working order. The crew was excellent. We had a very short connection but were met as we got off our first flight in Seoul and given great instructions about how to quickly get to our connection through security while our flight to SFO was being held for 15 minutes. The food was very good, choice of movies and TV excellent. Our bags made it to SFO despite the short connection. All in all I couldn't ask for a better way to make a 20 hr trip to the other side of the world."

Pros: "Great economy seats (vs north American carrieers) in.both pitch and comfort. Solid food. Decent IFE on larger screens (that didn't suffer the "double letterbox!). Minor quality quibble: Could have had better TV selection.. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Decent food, comfortable and spacious seating, good movies made my flight decent for the long haul. I actually was able to sleep on this flight and felt Korean has done alot to make the seats more compatible for this in economy."
Cons: "I've flown Korean air several times and generally have a great experience, but in this instance my real problem was with the flight staff. The flight staff seemed always to busy to help me with my needs be it giving me a customs form or asking if they could take my tray after I finished. In fact several times I was met with a rude response. I try to give flight attendants alot of grace as they work with alot of people and often they are not the nicest or easiest people to work with. In my case I tried to remain courteous but was met with a rude attitude which surprised me as I never experienced this before with Korean air. Most of the time they are some of the best staff I've ever encountered. So not sure if someone was having an off day or was tired, but on my next flight I hope that they will treat me a bit more kindly. Thanks!"

Pros: "Better then expected"

Pros: "They automatically moved my luggage to the next plane. No need to go through customs in Tokyo."

Cons: "United Food for international flights is not that good. I've had better with Delta."

Pros: "Crew were extra polite"
Cons: "Two-hour delay nearly caused me to miss connection"

Pros: "Outstanding service both from the ground crew as well as the crew on board. My boyfriend got food poisoning at some point before the flight and started to feel terrible and the flight crew took good care of him."
Cons: "The plane was very hot once the meal service was over and they wanted folks to sleep."

Pros: "Staff was courteous, comfortable flight"

Cons: "The 747 still hasn't been retrofitted with screens on the backs of every seat. The food was not great either."

Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."

Pros: "The meals were healthy Japanese meals with lots of vegetables"

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."

Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"

Cons: "We didn't hear the announcement that the gate for our flight had changed. I just happened to look at the flight info and noticed our flight was not listed. I went to the desk then I was informed of the change. Poor service."

Pros: "flight attendant in business not as nice as sfo to narita"

Pros: "Very attentive and friendly stewardesses. Would definitely fly again on this airline."

Cons: "Pity about the food which was bordering inedible. The crew were helpful but they lacked character. Almost like following orders to a t."

Pros: "The flight was very smooth with little turbulence overall. Food was delicious. The timing of the food seemed just right. They came by with drink refills often. Overall the customer service is top notch. The movie selection in the entertainment system was great -- I did not lack for anything to watch; if anything I almost wished I had more time to watch everything that interested me!"
Cons: "Although they're not unique among airlines in this regard, seats in economy are cramped and uncomfortable (especially for those of us with long legs; I'm 5'11" and my boyfriend is 6'2"). What did seem different about SA compared to other airlines is that for some reason the seatbacks are very stiff and it's hard to recline your chair. Also, the entertainment system was a bit unreliable -- twice for some reason it rewound me more than an hour back in the movie I was watching (so I had to fast-forward to the place where I was)."

Pros: "SQ always has the best looking flight attendants"

Pros: "Flat bed is wide and comfortable. Cabin crew was excellent."

Cons: "On time would be better."

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

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was an older model and I did not have strength to recline seat. Quality of seat back screens poor and hand sets difficult to navigate for a technophobe like Ma."

Cons: "As always, economy class is getting tighter. But economy here is still better than the western airlines."

Cons: "Stewardesses were a bit rude"

Pros: "Overall experience and wonderful crew"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "With 15 and 1/2 hours on the flight ahead, I was dreading the long, tedium of sitting for hours upon hours.

Pros: "Attentive Staff - Fabulous"

Pros: "Great food. Very fresh looking flight attendants. Awesome personal entertainment system."
Cons: "Service has faltered recently. I had asked fo Riesling, and the flight attendant said they would bring later. Never did. Also, they no longer offer various Crabtree and Evelyn products in bathroom, and my night pack didn't even come with a visor to cover my eyes for sleeping."

Cons: "Food not so good"

Pros: "It is really nice to have a direct flight option to Singapore"

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"

Pros: "Quality entertainment."
Cons: "Staff did nothing about crying children for the entire flight. Food was awful."

Pros: "The crew is very kind and friendly. Seats on the A330 are more comfortable than on 787, was lucky with exit row this time. Boarding in Stockholm good while in Doha a little messy. Gate staff not so friendly in Doha. In Stockholm checkin was excellent!"

Cons: "Food was extremly salty and not enough of it per serving. two meals I could not get my choice."

Cons: "The customer service from Qatar Airways. No one communicates and it was very frustrating to deal with."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and welcoming and warm."
Cons: "The toilets was not clean and the boarding delayed without any explanation"

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "YES--best airline for sure!"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."

Pros: "Behavior of the crews"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."

Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Pros: "Everything was first class with excellent service"
Cons: "Long flight with long layover in Doha"

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The way the crew member woke me up for lunch or dinner time.They tapped my shoulder and was pretty disturbed me. If good if you have a sign that we can put next to our seat if we don’t want to be disturbed while we sleep."

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"

Pros: "Stewards and Air hostess were great. The food was served well. The flight was kept clean and had a great entertainment system. Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "Excellent crew and plane. Not very crowded."

Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "Food was mediocre in options and taste. Not the most comfortable flight either. The Manila to Doha leg was much less comfortable than the Doha Philly leg."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."

Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."

Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."

Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
