Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We had a last minute flight change to extend my business stay in Asia. Our firm contacted JAL on 3/1 to extend the return date from 3/3 to 3/8. We were told that it was done and just call back on 3/7 to confirm flight. When we called back on 3/7, they said the flight was never rescheduled and could not find a voice recording of the request. Despite our offering of evidence of our other ticket from Osaka to TPE (3/3-3/8 round trip) showing that it was not a no-show, and we have phone records of calling JAL on 3/1. Nevertheless, their customer care center in CHINA was firm that it cannot be done. The money has been wasted. Ridiculous service for a 3,500 business class ticket."
Cons: "Screen was small and movies start at certain times."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "I will not be flying with this airline again. Korean airlines are the way to go."
Pros: "As always, seats are cramped; overall, nothing horrible. Crew was cheerful and responsive."
Pros: "I liked everything asked above."
Cons: "I hated the closeness of the seating. The seating was extremely claustrophobic."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, way more than other airlines. Boarding process was incredibly fast and efficient. Really attentive assistance if you are traveling with someone who is handicapped."
Cons: "There should have been a food option for non-Asian tastes."
Cons: "The return flight operated by American Airlines differed significantly from the initial flight to Tokyo from LA which was on a Japan Airlines plane. The hostesses on the JAL flight were much more gracious and attentive than the American Airlines hostesses. The food on the American flight was so bad that I threw most of it away….greatly contrasting with the good food on the JAL flight. My screen would not function correctly with any of the movies or other entertainment offerings. In the future I would choose a foreign carrier over any American carrier."
Pros: "The staff is phenomenal-polite and courteous. Much different from major American airlines."
Cons: "The food was not that great, especially the breakfast which was served with 'egg sauce' but other than that, flying JAL was truly exceptional."
Cons: "JAL cabin attendants and people from customer center were very professional and nice"
Cons: "Needs more variety of movies"
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew."
Pros: "It wasn't JAL it was American."
Pros: "The crew was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie choices were limited."

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Seats, movies, comfort"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"
Pros: "Friendly, clean. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to reserve a seat - apparently they don't allow Kayak customers to reserve seats now. I was forced into a middle seat and was uncomfortable and dehydrated the majority of the trip. Nice girl at baggage check said she'd ask a manager to move me, and to let them know at the gate, but the people at the gate said no. I felt discriminated against because I didn't book through them and/or I'm not Japanese. They historically love to put mushrooms in their food, like a fetish. This left me with one choice for the entree - some version of oyakodon - eggs and chicken. In my box there were two enormous chunks of fat/skin and another unidentifiable part of the chicken, and about the amount of edible chicken as 1 1/2 nuggets from Chick-Fil-A. There was more lotus root than chicken, so basically I had a box of rice and scrambled eggs with garnish. For the second meal, it was the Yoshinoya gyudon - a small serving of thinly sliced beef with rice. If I bought this fresh at a Yoshinoya restaurant, it would cost about $3. It's the rough equivalent of serving you a McDouble - cheap and filling and a coin toss if you get stomach pains. I lost that coin toss. Unless there is a big fare difference or I find out that their reserved seat policies are changed, I will choose ANA or another carrier. I used to enjoy JAL, but I cannot abide by idiotic decisions that seemed designed to punish people for using 3rd-party booking sites or who are not Japanese."

Pros: "The JAL flight was great. Seats were comfortable and leg room was very good. Crew was excellent too and very attentive."
Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner.

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: "Fare price was unbelievable. JAL and AA combined to make my flight very pleasurable and memorable. This first leg, on AA was smooth and allowed me to go to my connecting flight easy without having to go out of security and back into the international section of LAX"
Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"
Pros: "The cabin crew was professional, friendly and courteous. It's always refreshing to fly an Asian airline for the impeccable customer service. The 787 left me with minimal jet lag. The odd shaped pillows provided great back support."

Cons: "Breakfast was not tasty. Options could have been better."
Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"
Pros: "The plane was great!"
Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."
Pros: "As I was in premium economy it was of course amazing, however it was a very packed premium compared to my previous experience so wasn’t as comfortable but still amazing."
Cons: "The selection of movies currently was a bit lacking."
Pros: "Very friendly ground service staff member, lovely to be transferred to an earlier flight and my seating request was granted, flight service was also excellent."
Cons: "Do not ever forget or decide not to book a checked in bag on Air NZ when booking your ticket on line. You have a bag to check at the airport they will not tell you it is $30 or $40 but gouge you for $160au. That is a total rip off and they should be embarrassed to ask for that excessive amount."
Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."

Pros: "Was a little more leg room... makes all the difference"
Cons: "Was pretfy much Ok"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"

Cons: "Cold flight Food average at best Overall nothing flash and nothing bad solid average"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "Window seat liked it"

And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Having to pay for aisle seats. Constantly having to ask for more toilet roll. Forced to have non vegetarian food!"
Pros: "The plane the staff"
Pros: "I was feeling motion sick and several flight attendants went out of their way to help me feel better. I wish I knew their names as I would specifically mention them, but I really appreciate everything they did for me during that time."

Cons: "It was unpleasantly cold in the cabin, blowing cold wind at it could not be better"
Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."
Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."
Pros: "Amazing service the whole way, extremely polite and helpful even though I'm not one to ask for much. Food was great and also the entertainment, definitely flying with them again."
Pros: "Landing was smooth"
Pros: "Good quantity and variety of shows on in-flight entertainment system which is important on 12+ hour flights."
Cons: "Food quality has gone down. Most flight attendants we encountered had poor attitudes - felt like they were doing us a favor when serving us."
Pros: "Things I liked: 1) Ample leg room in economy. I liked the 3-3-3 seating arragement. The cabin was very comfy. 2) Friendly staff overall 3)Good quality food"
Cons: "1) The reading lights for my seat didn't turn on despite repeated reset by airline crew. Ditto for all passengers in Row 31 D-F. 2)Antiquated personalized screen for entertainment.When compared to Etihad and Emirates, this is way below par. 3)I was told mango juice was not available only for them to serve it later with regular meals. 4) I had left my coat with staff at the front to be picked up on my way out. While other airlines wait with the coat on your way out, Qatar made me wait to hand over my coat. I was one of the last passengers to deplane."
Cons: "I was travelling with two kids, one of them an infant, in a more than 16hr long flight and I was not given a seat with basinet. Not only did I not get a basinet (which I had requested at the time of booking my flight and did get in the shorter leg of the flight) I was given seating in the very last row. The set assigned to my child had its base loose and the crew requested me to seat him at some other place temporarily because if he is not seated they will not be able to take off. The lavatory in the other section of the plane was broken and all the passengers were crowding at the one near our seats."
Cons: "The crew members are forgetful. You have to tell them twice for them to attend for any assistance we need."
Pros: "Good plane, crew"
Cons: "Delay of departure and not much food or variety, not good snacks, little choices of entertainment"
Pros: "Good attentive service. Staff happy to help and accommodate requests."
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."

Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."
Pros: "Response is the same as above"
Pros: "Really good"
Pros: "No WiFi in most of the flight duration"
Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."
Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"
Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"
Pros: "Overall great service!"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."
Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."
Cons: "You need to bring a snack with you. This is a 16 hour flight and there is a long time between their food services. 2 meals and one snach"
Cons: "TOOO long."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."
Pros: "Business class was good Cabin crew service was impeccable Vegetarian meals were good Need more choices"
Cons: "Old aircraft Toilets were non functional but the crew kept them clean Entertainment systems were not functioning with remote Need complete overhaul of these Not enjoyable on a long flight"
Pros: "Direct nonstop flight out of Doha, Qatar. It’s a 16 hour flight, so I’d suggest fly business if you can."
Cons: "None to rant about."
Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."
Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"
Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Again amazing wonderful flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! I'm sooo impressed!!! Great food!"
Pros: "Good attitude from staff"
Pros: "Very nice arrangements, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, and the staff could not have been more hospitable. I would be delighted to fly with Qatar Airways again."
Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"
Pros: "on time no one in my row so i got to sleep good food"
Cons: "enoyed it all"
Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."
Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing- 4 hour delay on the Tarmac and they did nothing to advocate for us getting off the plane or keeping us updated."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Kahului airport is difficult to navigate and no internet or charging stations"
Pros: "Staff were thoughtful and attentive at all times. Especially with the number of small children and young families on board I found the crew to be extremely accomodating to the young families and others surrounding gusts needs"
Cons: "Couldn't find a negative. A great and pleasant experience"
Pros: "Jennifer at the luggage department was exceptional made a bad experience somewhat tolerable"
Cons: "After boarding the plane and settling in, we were told to disembark because of mechanical issues. We then waited in the lobby sitting on the ground while they prepared another plan for us to depart. After a hour-and-a-half delay we finally departed but when we landed at LAX I discovered that they had lost my luggage instead of arriving at 9:40 and being on my way home, it is now 1 o'clock in the morning and I'm still not home because I had to fill out forms and deal with missing luggage. NOT HAPPY WITH MY EXPERIENCE!"
Cons: "No vegetarian option"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Limited entertainment unless you pay more."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and smooth, the food was great and the staff were very attentive. Drinks and refreshments were provided often and a large variety. Like all airlines the seats in cattle class are a big squeezey, but as Good as any other airline."
Cons: "Nothing, smooth flight with helpful freindly staff."
Pros: "Very helpful and friendly staff at the airport and onboard the plane!"
Cons: "On the Honolulu to Las Vegas leg of our journey ... sales of snacks... before the delivery of small but good crackers and juice...They have to make money where they can (I did not purchase)"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "No usb. no lcd screen"
Pros: "The service and accommodations were fantastic. Comfortable inside. Food is always a plus. The one thing was that it was expensive. The ticket was about even but to buy any entertainment was pricey. No issue if you bring your own."
Pros: "I like the ability to have an upgraded seat, and also the staff is very kind and warm"
Cons: "They really need to try and put a passengers with small children or infants in one part of the plane. These parents aren’t held to any modicum of manners or basic respect for the other passengers around them. If I say something I’m the awful person, when I paid the same amount if not more than that awful child who kicked the back of seat and screamed the whole 5 hrs home. I’m not talking new parents navigating a baby and crying, that’s gonna happen. I am talking about the hideous humans who have decide to have children and check out on being a parent. It’s effing miserable."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and service was very good, the extra comfort seats have a lot of legroom which is great. Will definitely fly with Hawaiian again in the future."
Pros: "Smooth, comfortable, wonderful staff and nice meals/snacks/ selection of movies."
Cons: "I was surprised no meal service for a five hour flight I thought it was required when flying five hours that you would get a meal, when booking it said a meal would be served, no meal. Also no earbuds for the entertainment offered. Disappointing."
Cons: "There was very little room so I couldn’t relax and sleep."
Pros: "The flight crew was polite and competent, and boarding was no better or worse than any other airline."
Cons: "Being tall, I asked about upgrades at the gate well prior to boarding, and was told that I was already in an exit row. That would have been perfect, but alas... I was SO not in an exit row. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me for five hours, and in an uncomfortable seat to boot. Never again."
Pros: "Complimentary items"
Cons: "Purchased headphones for a screen that didn’t work."
Pros: "Lots of space for coach passengers and I’m 6’2”."
Cons: "None of the snack or meal options were vegan"
Pros: "Hawaiian is just full of kind people and good vibes."
Pros: "I was attended to without being bothered, fed and watered often."
Pros: "Travel process"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Despite checking in early I was unable to get an assigned seat until the very last minute. I wanted a window seat so that I could sleep by leaning against the wall but none were available. The airline employee initially said that he could offer me an upgrade to a premium seat but then he said that none of those were available either. The seat I got in the middle had very limited padding and would not recline even an inch. I usually fall asleep easily on planes but I could not sleep at all on this overnight flight. My neck and back are still sore from the flight even after napping for 5 hours when I got home. In addition, they offered us no snacks, except for purchase. I wish Southwest flew to Hawaii!"
Pros: "Hawaiian reminds me what it was like flying in the good old days. Complimentary cocktails keeps it classy"
Cons: "Entertainment was rentable ipads so basically nonexistent. Hardly a deal breaker since we all have our own these days."
Pros: "Being such a long flight I would think complementary entertainment would have given you 5 star service"
Pros: "The staff was really helpful and the airplane was nice"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "aircraft was old and small for the distance and seats had zero legroom. Nothing good to watch in way of movies."
Pros: "Left on time"
Pros: "Great crew, and service, clean restrooms, free bag check due to full airplane"
Cons: "No charging outlets"
Cons: "They lost our luggage."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Lighting on plane not very good"
Pros: "They serve meals which apparently doesn't happen on the other airlines. They offer free wine with the meals which was a nice touch but we didn't have any - just water was fine. In the Airbus 330 there was plenty of room to store carry on luggage"
Cons: "We don't look to be treated like we are royalty. But it would be nice if the flight crew took more time to be friendly - smile a little maybe and make it look like you are happy to be there. I had brought gift cards along to tip the flight attendants but it just didn't happen."
Pros: "Had no problem this time. Going nonstop was the way to go"
Cons: "Sure don't like paying for baggage and watching movies! Those items should both be free!!!!!"
Pros: "Agent at check-in was very friendly and efficient. Kudos."
Cons: "Could not check-in with mobile app (on iPhone)."
Pros: "The entire trip was smooth and easy, from check in at Honolulu airport to baggage claim at LAX, we had zero issues! That's a rarer and rarer thing these days. The flight crew were friendly and polite, the complimentary meal in coach was a pleasant surprise, and the A330-2 was smartly designed for relative comfort and accessibility."
Cons: "Would be great if there were SOME free television offerings, like Southwest Airlines does. I understand paying for the movies (although if you really wanted to stand out above the competition you could offer a select movie for free like in the old days), however the option to watch some satellite tv channels at no cost would be great. Also the nearest bathroom was out of order and that was a bit disappointing."
Cons: "Everything is for sale including blanketd"
Cons: "The snack that they served was a joke period"
Pros: "They fed us which was great!"
Pros: "On time, courteous."
Cons: "All entertainment except Hawaiian music was costly. Only drinks and snacks were offered for free"
Cons: "The flight was horrible.Delayed for over 7 hours Maui, with the crew giving us "30 min" updates which weren't updates at all except that we don't have an update, finally after 5-6 hours, they gave us meal vouchers and told us to come backt to the holding area at a certain hour. Then, when we got back they told us we were going to be flying over to Honolulu and picking up the new flight crew, I PAID FOR A NON STOP TICKET! NOT ONLY DID WE FLY TO HONALULU, THEY MAKE ALL OF US GET OFF THE PLANE AGAIN AND GET ON AGAIN AFTER 1-1.5 HOURS. I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AT 9:50PM ON SATURDAY NIGHT, INSTRAD LANDED AT LAX ON SUNDAY AT 7AM. NO ONE WANTS TO TALK REFUND, IT WAS A MESSY SITUATION - SEVERAL CUSTOMERS WHERE ONT HE PHONE WITH BOTH HAWAIIN AIRLINES AND PRICELINE, KAYAK TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON."
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "Had a late departure from Honolulu because of an equipment repair, but the flight itself was fairly smooth and we were were grateful to have a bit of extra room on the plane because several nearby seats were not occupied. Luggage was delivered perfectly on-time upon arrival at LAX - thank you! Really appreciated the excellent customer service offered by Hawaiian Air prior to this trip, when one of the flights had to be rescheduled because of illness. Representatives were efficient, polite, and very understanding - Kudos to this carrier!"
Cons: "The touch-screen "display" was not so convenient to operate and seemed a bit archaic in style. Our outbound flight had been filled to capacity and was very unpleasant re long lines for the restrooms - but this return-segment of the trip was not crowded at all and presented a wonderful contrast."
Cons: "Have to pay to watch TV and/or Movies Have to pay for a pillow and/or blanket Have to pay for headphones"
Pros: "Great staff and overall very enjoyable..."
Cons: "No entertainment.... really? You can't offer a movie or tv show for free?! That's really silly. Also, my bag got DESTROYED. Cracked, torn, wheels pulled off. Pretty ridiculious. Can't believe I had to pay to check my bag and now have to throw it out and buy a new one!"
Pros: "Smooth ride. Thank you!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies."
Cons: "Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Flight was not comfortable, when seats are pushed back, there is no leg room left. Entertainment system and contents both were poor. Flight delayed by 4 hours."
Pros: "Great crew! Cheap flight"
Cons: "Food okay, flight delayed both ways, seating uncomfortable in economy."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great. Enough space to be comfortable. Crew was nice and attentive."
Pros: "Generous & kind flight crew, lots of in-flight entertainment, and a smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "I wasn’t given the seats I had chosen when purchasing the ($3,000) tickets. The seats in the “Dreamliner” were cramped and hard—uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Needs vegetarian options"
Cons: "One stewardess said I could fill in an empty bulkhead seat (Row 50) after we were airborne and the seat belt sign was off. So I moved, to be removed by Sarah (stewardess) and put back in Tow 75. Then she put two of her friends in Row 50. When I walked up later to get my bag, there was still an empty Row 50 seat, but her friiends’ purses were in the seat, and they reluctantly removed the items when I insisted to sit there. Sarah should have left me in Row 50 and not made me move back to 75."
Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"
Pros: "Clean, timely, organized, good food, good entertainment, smooth... Aussome! :)"
Cons: "My remote in my arm rest (58D) was a bit broken. While it still worked, the flap was missing some screws to hold it in place. Also, the touch screen oftentimes had issues sensing my finger on the pause button. Overall it did not hinder me from enjoying the entertainment services provided."
Cons: "Seats are old and small. Not worth the cost of business class ticket. Dreamliner a million times better than a380"
Cons: "Check in personal at Australia was very bad attitude and service"
Pros: "Qantas is a quality airline and provided us with better service than most USA airlines that we typically fly for about the same pricepoint. We were very impressed by the quality of service, the meal and entertainment offerings- it was a nice memory of how flying with USA airlines used to be in the good ol days. We flew economy so nothing special was added to our basic service."
Cons: "All was good, would fly them again should we need to travel their routes again. We flew 2 international flights and 4 domestic (within Australia) flights during our stay in Australia and had great experiences on all the flights."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process for economy passengers."
Pros: "Liked the food, flight attendants, entertainment and overall comfort even though it's just economy. You just have to come prepared with what you need to stay entertained and comfortable ie snacks, comfortable clothes and shoes, jacket or sweater, pillow, headphones, music. Better of you can bring your own headphones that use bluetooth and headphone jack cable."
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic at best and starts 20 minutes before take off. It works but it's very chaotic for economy passengers. I am sure it's much easier and nicer for premium economy and business select and first class passengers so you get what you pay for lol."
Pros: "Good was good"
Cons: "I sat in seat 77c the seat in front of me had something broken so my seat table kept falling down. Other than that it was good"
Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."
Pros: "The way your seats reclined: back/head your typical recline but add your seats bottom sliding forward. Best sleep I have ever had while in International economy. Sadly our plane to Australia from Los Angeles did not have the same seats. Entertainment selection excellent ! Great line up of brand new and older movies. I was able to use my noise cancelling headphones in your jack which was a big plus."
Cons: "Paying an extra $30-35 just to choose a seat. Enjoyed sitting in the back of the plane however meal selection was terrible as the front of the plane always fed first so by the one it was our turn there was only one option - terrible “southern chicken” Or the Greek Inlet Which was just ok."
Pros: "All the food. Service was good."
Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."
Cons: "The food was horrible. It’s hard to believe the airline would serve food like that. The flight is long and hard enough as it is. The “snack” options listed are not available. Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."
Pros: "The entire staff was wonderful and friendly!! Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"
Cons: "We had a delay as they could not get the lift for food to put onto the plane, so we were delayed 1 hour. Dennis Byrne & Marie Byrne"
Pros: "The staff was so attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The seats could use a little more leg room"
Pros: "I watched heaps of movies and programs."
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Pros: "I like the services"
Pros: "Great selection of movies, i liked that the economy cabin at the back of the top floor of the a380 was more personal than a larger economy cabin. Crew were happy to serve me drinks throughout the flight after the halfway point when i started drinking"
Cons: "I would love love love to see airlines recycling the majority of the waste generated during flight..."
Pros: "the flight left on time which is always a boon, and the crew were efficient, altho i got the sense that they had done it all many times before, and they were only going thru the motions. the flight was incredibly full, so little room to move around, and leg room is a definite challenge! the bathrooms were good, they didn't smell like most airlines do! Food was generous in portion size, and there were yummy snacks also."
Cons: "the aisles in the plane were very narrow, so getting up to go to the bathroon with everyone else became a challenge! apart from the narrow aisles and the lack of leg room it was a good flight."
Pros: "Excellent service but surprised that the entertainment system was a bit old and the food tried to be too fancy but the quality was lacking."
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "charging extra money for seat selection cabin service"
Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Flight attendants were the best. Everything about the flight was perfect. Also, I didn't even realize we had landed it was such a smooth landing."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."
Cons: "cabin has too many seats on the lower deck."
Pros: "They made us sit in the plane for close to 4 hours without any food. I almost passed out as the plane was so warm (AC broken) and they didn't give us anything except a small cup of water. The delayed made me miss my connection which couldn't be rearranged."
Cons: "Good was awful but I appreciated that they had gluten free options."
Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."
Pros: "The crew was lovely. Food was good, but the presentation is not what it used to be. Rushed. Flight was nice and smooth."
Cons: "Plane was a little dated. Boarding the flight in Sydney was a bit chaotic. No fruit like they usually have. Not everything on the menu card was provided."
Pros: "I liked flying with Qantas, crew service was okay, food was okay, however, ticketing agents were very helpful during both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Crew was a little rude to cabin passengers, airline points didn't transfer well, and food was a little bland."
Pros: "Best price for derect flight. Crew was pleaant , food was ok. Would fly same flight again."
Pros: "The special meals for my son and daughter were amazing!"
Pros: "Plane was fairly new so all electronics worked."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were poorly conceived and kid friendly. Staff were surly and unfriendly... It should also be noted this was an American Airlines flight. Qantas now sub contracting I guess."
Pros: "The. Confort of the seats"
Cons: "The meals schedule and the portion. Only one full meal on a 14 hrs flight not sufficent. Espaciallhy that we have to wait 1 h in the plane before depqrting due to an electrical issue. Snacks were served on regular basis but are quite questionable ( apple, M&M, mini burger, not sifficient drink offered except for water."
Pros: "The flight was about 12.5 hrs from Sydney to Los Angeles. It was economy and they provided dinner and breakfast and snacks in between. There was not a lot of leg room but more than most airlines provide in economy. They provided movies and like entertainment including the headsets at no charge. Meals and entertainment at no charge is a plus for them when most airlines are charging for everything but the air you breathe during the flight."
Pros: "The crew were nice and apologetic for my terrible seat."
Cons: "Seat was known to crew to be a pain - I couldn't sleep, I was constantly being bumped into. No option to request intolerance sensitive food."
Cons: "I had an awful experience. The seats lean too far back and the person in from of you crushes you're open your laptop? You also can barely get out of the seat and if the person in front of you is leaned back. Also my luggage took 35min and I missed my connection and had to wait 6hrs for my next flight."
Pros: "Everything from the crew to constant treats. Entertainment computer was very good as well."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Cons: "Flight was a series of late take offs, the food was really bad, people are so crammed in there is no space to even move around, one entire area was blocked with people's stuff which led to exit doors and this is not safe....time to demand airlines provide decent space to at least be able to cross ones legs, can't even do that anymore"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very hospitable, kind, and upbeat."
Cons: "The flight was very bumpy."
Pros: "Flight attendants were so lovely, flight on time"
