Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."

Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."
Pros: "Best service ever provided by an airline"

The food wasn't filling but that's to be expected so bring snacks if your own. The flight was smooth no issues and the flight attendants were very attentive. Had a tv with movies and the personal tv also had games like a game system."
Cons: "I disliked that the seating did not have its own personal air. At times I would get hot."
Pros: "The flight crew heard word we were headed to Japan for our wedding. They quiety prepared a card and a beautiful bouquet made out of candies and straws.

Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."

Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."

Cons: "we had to sit on runway for 1 hr to burn fuel to lighten the load. did not get served until 1 hr of fly time."
Cons: "Wifi never worked, mentioned several times to crew and didn't have decency to check or follow up. Attendants were crabby at best and were acting like they were doing passengers a favor by even. Wing there. Very rude and unprofessional to every question. Captain came out to go to bathroom twice and chatted up remaining flight attendant for several minutes- making it so passengers couldn't approach restrooms."

Cons: "nothing to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding in Houston was disorganized"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."

Cons: "Two hours late!"
Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "I was extremely late getting to the airport due to traffic accidents. The crew held the door open for me after security let them know I was there. I am truly thankfull!"

Cons: "The fact that we had to pay extra in order to have room to Cross our legs."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Pros: "Delays, rudeness, doesn't have its act together. Must be United Airlines"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"
Pros: "Seats are to small but fortunately sat directly behind first class and had plenty of leg room. The new entertainment system worked well."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The size of the plane"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."

Pros: "New crew"
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Luggage was not in Birmingham for the flight until next day in the afternoon"
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Pros: "Organized, calm and considerate to travelers."
Pros: "One leg of this trip had free access to United WIFI and free access to entertainment on your personal devices. Seemed like a great way to keep passengers entertained without having to install the screens for each seat, passengers have their devices anyway."
