Cons: "I am satisfied with AA overall."

Cons: "Cabin crews need to learn how to smile."

Pros: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."

Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."

Pros: "The staff are always very polite and professional. Food was fine (better the past years). Everything was punctual and orderly."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. The gray ones were much better (San Diego to Narita) in comparison."

Cons: "What did you dislike? I purchased our tickets back in November selecting which seats we wanted. When we arrived February 16th they stated we were "standby" after a debated discussion they found us some seats at the very back of the plane (not our selected seats). On our flight back they had us, my husband and I seating in separate sections on the plane (again not our selected seats) 6 rows away from each other. I will NOT recommend using Kayak in the future. Leslie Dickey"

Cons: "A Japan Airlines employee escorted me every step of the way to ensure that I made my connecting flight from Tokyo to San Diego because I only had an hour and ten minute layover and this can be challenging when you’re in a foreign country. I cannot thank Japan Airlines enough for how easy they made traveling and how comfortable they made me feel. I Highly recommend flying Japan Airlines for your travels."

Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised."

Cons: "Everything was great !"

Pros: "I loved flying JAL! I've flown several times between the US and Korea, and this was the best trip I've taken thus far! It was comfortable, the plane was awesome with high ceilings and it actually felt quite spacious. The entertainment was also perfect with tons of stuff to choose from. The best part, though, was their exemplary customer service! I needed to transport cold insulin, so at the gate counter I checked with the gate agent to see if they could refrigerate my insulin since I had a long travel time to my home destination. She promptly found out for me and talked to the flight attendants and told me they would take care of it when I got to my seat. She even checked to see if I needed a special meal or not after I finding out I was diabetic. They were so kind! They even let me refreeze my cold packs in their freezer before landing so I could keep my insulin cold after we landed. It was a huge help and they seemed genuinely concerned for my well being and what I needed. I will now fly JAL whenever I can!"

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."

My parents are old my mother can’t walk probably and Blood pleasure patient. I ask for room in Beijing because of 18 hours delayed stay. But they failed for get Hotel. But Japanese staff were nice also crew. I would love to give 5/5 rating but honestly was bad experience only because of delayed flight and couldn’t get recovery."

When I got off at Shuangliu airport From CA 4120 at 23:50pm, there was no airport bus to transfer me from T2 to T1 international Departure at Chengdu Shuangliu.

Cons: "Flight attendants cannot communicate well."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Flight amenities & entertainment, imited English and baggage service."

Even when I slept through meals they tried to find something for me to eat."
Cons: "Meal options could be better."

Cons: "A lot of turbulence the last half. I got sick and I have been flying for 20 years through Europe and Asia. It never happened before. A rough landing."

Pros: "Service was great"

Pros: "Everything fine"

Pros: "The crew was nice."

Pros: "staff are overall friendly."

Pros: "Meals were decent, Staff was VERY attentive, courteous and polite. Ride was very smooth. Didn't hear much from the pilots, which is ok!"
Cons: "The no-phone, no-internet rule is absurd. I could have really used some internet-for-purchase on a 13 hour flight. Some movies were only in Chinese with no subtitles and the games seemed to require a separate controller with X/Y buttons. Overall blah score entertainment. Announcements were too frequent an intrusive, especially when they're repeating the same thing 2 minutes apart. Also, the weird rules--shades must be up during takeoff, but must be down while we were in the air. Seat must be up during meal time. Learn to chill a little China Air."

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "We were never given an update at the gate that our departure would be later. Everyone was standing in line ready to go for about 40 minutes before we finally started boarding. The seats aren’t the best. This 6 hr flight had no entertainment."

Pros: "Food and comfort of the flight"

Pros: "Air China aircraft is very new and clean."
Cons: "My flight from JFK to Beijing the crew members are very loud. When they speak, they are loud. Also the have tried 3 times to get flight attendants for service. They just ignore. Their announcement in English is really bad. I can barely understand anything."

Cons: "Flies on plane. Tv screens not working. Less than a dozen movies to choose from."

Cons: "80 minutes delay without explanation."

Pros: "Dude at counter who had to change our seats as we were flying with an infant was great. Other people who were assisting us didn't know how to fix the issue but he did. Then when we boarded, he made sure we went first as we had all that baby stuff you have to carry!"
Cons: "I have flown Air China 6 times and every time we leave late. One time it caused me to miss a connecting flight and I was stuck in LA for two days. Food is not good. Buy snacks before you board. Movies/entertainment is poor. Nothing to watch for 15 hours."

Pros: "Smiles of flight attendants and services"
Cons: "Flight delayed, limits of food choices"

Cons: "Horrible service, part of the ceiling light came off, got so hot when we were boarding - I was nervous that there was a big issue with the plane"

Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and attentive. Most spoke English or made some effort try. Flights were on time staff was super helpful. Meals were great!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped of your a taller person like me (6'2"). Very few English options for on flight entertainment."

Cons: "Crew was particularly bad with English, wemleft four hours late, the food was dry and overwarmed, and we arrived to LAX with no gate, sat on tarmac for at least another half hour."

Pros: "Nothing, it was a horrible, never to be repeated experience compared to JAL, Asiana, and China Airlines (Taipei), which I ususually take."
Cons: "Inconvenient gates, landed in LAX near the beach, 40 minute bus ride to Tom Bradley. Horrible, inedible food. Basically I will never take this airline again and strongly recommend that their low-ball pricing is like a mean trick; and not worth the low cost at all. I should have known, "you get what you pay for"."

Pros: "everything was better"

Cons: "Boarding and deplaning from the tarmac vs a jetway"

Pros: "That this airline delivered me safely to all points."
Cons: "Robotic flight attendants: they acted like robots and never as humans. Smiling is not what their operational programs have missed. They are RUDE people. People should try not to even change planes in China. Koreans and Japanese people are much far adorable than any one Chinese I encountered. They have to step up. For now, never again on any Chinese airlines. Taiwanese airlines provide much better service."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Food was mediocre. Drinks were mediocre. Seats were very uncomfortable. There was no English entertainment offered and they wouldn't let you use your phone on airplane mode. Air China's website doesn't work or do they have people answering the phones hey make you so it's impossible to check in ahead of time and select good seats."

Pros: "Im 6' 2" and had about an inch of leg room. Better than most domestic US flights."
Cons: "Wasnt allowed to open my window shade at night... then was told I need to open my shade in the morning when I wasnt adjusted to the time difference and trying to sleep. Crew was quite rude. No cellphone use allowed despite being in airplane mode, making my netflix movies I downloaded useless."

Pros: "Good movies, quick boarding."
Cons: "Was a bit bummed they did a water/beverages security check at the gate before boarding the plane. Full, unopened water bottles purchased feet from the gate were not allowed to be brought on board. With it being a 12 hour flight, I would prefer to have a water bottle ready whenever I need a drink instead of relying on the flight attendants to bring water by the tiny cup full. Seemed inconvenient without any purpose stated. Also in one section of the plane it smelled strongly of an uncleaned bathroom."

Pros: "This has got be the worst airline for customer service. I was on hold for over 2 hours on multiple occasions just to make a simple change to my ticket, which for some reason can't be done online. After realizing their customer service number is a complete hoax, I had to take an hour long train ride to the airport to make the change. Once there, I was told they couldn't make any changes and I would need to call customer service. I insisted calling was pointless at which time the aiine staff shruggered her shoulders and walked away. I made another attempt to call the customer service number, which I still believe no one at all works at. Needless to say, I ended up eating a $1000 plane ticket because of their refusal to help. DO GIVE THESE PEOOLE YOUR MONEY. THEY TOOM PLENTY OF MINE."

Pros: "Entertainment was fine and food was mediocre. Crew was nice but speaks zero English"

Pros: "Great flight and staff."

Pros: "Great Service Great Flight."

Pros: "I liked that it was cheap and one of the video games would have been really fun had it worked."
Cons: "My touch screen was broken on two of the flights. I was starving because there was no Vegan food. My knees were so bruised that I couldn't walk after the flight because they were so jammed and the person in front of me kept attempting to for the seat back when there was no space. The flight attendants didn't speak enough english to communicate. My baggage was lost. The customer service at baggage claim was rude, and it was a very confusing process finding the bag."

Pros: "Beijing (PEK) Terminal 3"
Cons: "Beijing (PEK) Terminal 3"

Cons: "I lost one luggage and is still waiting for Air China finding it."

Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hrs , saw the pilot coming after 2 hrs , why were the customers not informed"

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I was in a window seat and I could only rest one leg at the leg rest in front of the seat. I was with my girlfriend and she was seating in the middle instead of the window seat and the flight attendant told us that we should not switch seats. The food was okay."
