Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "Courtesy and thoughtful services throughout the flight More leg room and better food than typical American Airlines’ economy"
Cons: "Can’t think of any thing"
Pros: "They were every where all the time! No sitting around in the back like most airlines. Movies Hallie and many first run and Oscar nominated."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Food was fair, not great."
Pros: "Bought my ticket in June, when I could access the AA site for my seat selection, it wanted $18 to $35 to make the seat selection. We chose to get the assignment at the airport, but could only get it at tge gate. Made me feel like I was flying standby!"
Pros: "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "Courteous and helpful crew members and I liked the delicious meal served during our flight."
Pros: "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
Cons: "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."
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: "I was early to check in . But the check in was slow and I. Had to run to my plane ride .. and had no time to shop"
Cons: "The service was so so and food was lousy"
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and solicitous and helpful. This is my third trip with JAL and I. Happy about it."
Pros: "Great seating very spacious for economy class.... I got a pillow a blanket and lots of leg room... I enjoyed the in cabin service... TV was nice lots to choice from great movies..... I enjoyed free Wine.... And loved my ice cream treat... Felt like first class.... Thank you"

Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Service was exceptional and good was good. Everything was to my expectations and would certainly use Japan Airlines again"
Pros: "Attendants were very supportive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Restroom smelled bad"
Pros: "The seats were roomier than expected, the food was delicious and everyone was very professional and friendly. I picked up this flight because JAL is a partner for AA and I'm so glad I did. I will fly them again."
Cons: "Very long lines at the security gate at Itami. Difficult web check in."
Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"
Pros: "The stewardesses were wonderful-kind, considerate and hardworking. They gave us constant attention offering drinks. I would love to travel with them again!"
Cons: "Nothing- I'd fly with them anytime."
Pros: "I felt well taken care of the whole time. When checking my bag, the attendant saw that I have a middle seat, and got me an exit row window, which allowed me to sleep. They accommodated a last-minute request for vegetarian meals. The flight felt like it took about half the time it actually did."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online without a JAL account."
Pros: "JAL service is always the best Flight attendance are the always, always, awesome. Seats together were found at checkin"
Cons: "Movie selection was not so good No Wifi inbound or outbound 777 Almost nonstop babies crying the whole flight Seat selection on the website is not user friendly, and you cannot get seats books until 72 hours before flight and usually 9 out of 10 times I find I cannot find 2 seats together until airport checkin."
Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and orderly. The crew was very attentive and made sure we all had enough to eat and drink. The food was good, the tea and coffee was good."

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."

Pros: "As my other flights with them, the crew is so friendly, the planes are nice and pretty good movie selection. Also nicely organized and they apologized profusely for the hour delay. I wish all of the American airline companies would learn from them! Great beverage service too, even when people are sleeping they quietly come around for us who are awake."
Cons: "The food for vegetarians is not very good. But they feed you a lot and you won't go hungry!"

Pros: "Even in economy class, the seats are wider than most American airplanes, there is a pedestal for the feet and the seats recline deeper. The service is excellent, very friendly and accommodating.We left on-time and arrived on-time. When flying again to Asia or SE Asia, I will definitely book ANA."

Pros: "All good"
Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."
Pros: "ANA flight rarely have big problem, I just let myself relaxed."
Cons: "I don't know, but I felt some cabin crew were a bit cold to me this time. I usually fly with my partner who has Gold status. When I'm with him crew come to greet us and very nice to us. I csn say it's unnaturally nice to us. This time I was on my own anf I felt I wasn't very welcomed. Ot could be my imagination though!"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight very much!"
Cons: "Too much scrutiny for my request for a double vodka screwdriver"

Pros: "I liked the food and the personal television you get. You can play video games on it which was cool."
Cons: "The wifi cost $20 for the whole flight. Pretty expensive compared to other airlines!"
Pros: "Great airline. If I give United 1 *, then ANA gets 4* in my book. The staff and flight attendants are very attentive to your needs, polite, always pleasant. I've been using ANA for my frequent trips between Japan and the states, they are consistent. The in flight food is good. You will get complimentary wine, Haagen Dazs ice cream dessert. Cathay Pacific also serve HD ice cream, but half the size on lunch meal. ANA serve on both meals."
Cons: "i could give ANA a 5*, but I think their web site needs work ! their web navigation is kinda confused, a little bit less intuitive. If you are in the US you need to log on to the ANA US site, the JP site is in Japanese and it will not redirect you to US. On line check in can get confused as a lot of time it would not recognize the booking number, you have to use a long 10 digit e-ticket number. My fight from Tokyo to HKG would let me check in and get seat assignment until 24 hours before the scheduled flight. The seat map shows all seat ps were taken without telling what is going on."
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service"
Pros: "Boarding was the fastest I've ever seen on an international trip. Thank you!! And the flight arrived earlier than anticipated. So travel was great."
Cons: "Tight quarters in the economy class were much less comfortable than the ANA flight to Narita. And why isn't there at least a curtain in front of the restrooms - there's way too little privacy in that regard. One should not be able to see the toilet from 10 rows back whenever the door is opened!"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment to last the entire flight"
Pros: "Flight crew were fantastic. They even took the trouble to clean the toilets regularly. They were spotless!"
Cons: "Could do with a little more food."
Pros: "Polite, efficient service by the airline. Relatively roomy, good legroom, bathrooms relatively larger compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Older plane, older video screen."
Pros: "Crew is fantastic. I have flew many many airlines but have never found crew so friendly and service was impeccable. Planes were relatively new which is usually case for majority of the foreign airlines flying long distance from USA. I had ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. I'm an Indian American and this meal was much better than Air India provides. Will fly again ANA for sure!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "service is great ana the best airline super friendly"
Cons: "Unfortunately even tough I bought the ticket through ANA from CGK to EWR round trip, from Tokyo (NRT) to Newark (EWR) and from Newark (EWR) to Tokyo (NRT) ANA using other provider which is United Airlines, and their service wasn't good. Hopefully in the future ANA will have direct flight from NRT to EWR."

Cons: "The food choices were not very good. However there was a good selection on the beverages and they were complementary which is also good"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very cushion for your bottom. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded.

Pros: "Great cabin crew, great Qatar standard."

Pros: "Good attentive service. Staff happy to help and accommodate requests."
Pros: "I can never get over how astonishingly better Doha airport (from start to finish) and lounges are than any others"

Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."

The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy.

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Pros: "Not much really."
Cons: "The air craft was old, I was sitting on the exit row and the screen was loose and the window on the exit row was leaking. The food was bad and the service was poor. The flight attendant kept on forcing things on me rather than asking me what I wanted."
Pros: "We enjoyed the comfort, food , staff and entertainment."
Cons: "The queuing for check-in, luggage control and plane boarding was much too long, 1 1/2 hrs +. The online check-in couldn't be used."

The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Cons: "The seats are too congested with little leg room."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seats in economy coach; nice selection of movies; the best airline food I've had; while I don't speak Arabic, the language is beautiful & melodic & the inclusion of the non-Western cultural perspective was refreshing. The A380 is an impressive jet."
Cons: "Cost too much to make flight changes when the sudden cancellation of my meeting in Lusaka (Zambia) required me to return home early. Since my trip was a volunteer mission and not a money-making business venture, absorbing that expense ($200 for the return to the US and another $200 to get from Boston to Washington, DC on the JetBlue connector) made what had become an expensive waste of money even more so."
Pros: "The food was good, crew was helpful, and the entertainment options were very nice."
Cons: "I wished for more water to keep hydrated and thought it could be better if bottled water was offered at the beginning of the flight."

Pros: "The groud supervisor was exceptionally helpful, doing whatever we needed for a successful flight."
Cons: "I had a 3 year old boy sitting behind me who kicked the back of my seat 70% of the time. It's an 11 hour flight. The crew had no toys left for this boy and the mother didn't bring any. She left him alone while she went to the bathroom. He flipped out. The cabin crew said they couldn't move me even though there were a few empty seats in the next class up. Small children should be placed with parents in front of the bulkheads so they can't make other traveler's lives miserable as there is no seat in front to kick. It's so annoying to see childless people stretched out in those seats when they are the perfect option for small children who almost always get restless and kick the back of the seat in front. It should be mandatory to place children there."
Pros: "good space in the aircraft friendly staff excellent entertainment made the journey happy even if we were very upset to leave Dubai."

Cons: "Too long of a wait for "parking" after landing"
Pros: "Service level of cabin crew and ICE."
Cons: "The long wait to exit from the aircraft and to pick up my baggages from the carousel at Mcr airport.

Pros: "The flight on the A3800 was great."
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Pros: "Staff were quite attentive. All requested were promptly fulfilled"
Cons: "Service took a long time once on the flight. We left Sydney at 7pm and didn't receive any food or drinks for at least an hour and a half."
Pros: "night flight but well able to sleep on this flight"
Pros: "Almost everything!"
Cons: "Couldn’t find anything to really complain about other then had to go and ask one of the stewards to get the drink I asked for that hadn’t come."
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."
Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."

Cons: "We didn't had entertainment"
Pros: "Great tasting food and lots of movies to choose from"
Cons: "Wish they would board the plane from the back to the front. Maybe that would eliminate the back up in the aisle during boarding times."
Pros: "Crew were courteous and competent."
Cons: "No leg room; no head room when seat in front was reclined. Very uncomfortable. Food was also mediocre; expected better from a non-US carrier."
Pros: "Smooth booking and accommodating crews. I thought the United flight had much more room and was a cleaner and more modern airplane. However the food on the Swiss flight was really excellent! What a nice surprise. The crews on both flights were just terrific. They made everyone feel so welcome and they were all so friendly."

Cons: "Late leaving HK meant I missed connecting flight!"
Pros: "Service was quick and organized, entertainment programming was diverse and there was plenty of quiet time."
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized. Ok board is the general rule."
Pros: "Our prior flight from Rome to Zurich departed 45 minutes late, so we expected our connecting flight from Zurich to Moscow would be missed. NOT SO! Many connecting flights were delayed for our passengers. This kind of thoughtfulness and professionism is greatly appreciated. Crew was fast, efficient and friendly. Service with beverages and food was immediate and non-stop. It was our first trip on SwissAir, and it will be our preferred airline in the future."
Cons: "I'm not a big fan of curried rice with chicken. I am willing to forgive, due to the great service of the SwissAir staff."

Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."
Cons: "The connection time was too long"
Pros: "This was a 12 hour flight that didn’t feel like 12 hours. They movies and other entertainment was very good with new and older movies that didn’t disappoint. The food was great all the way through to the farewell piece of chocolate."
Cons: "The seats on this flight were very tight. I am 5’8 and felt super cramped. The seats themselves were not that bad just small and not a lot of space. If you fly with them don’t expect to kee anything under the seat with you. Also the whole boarding process is a big cluster! There is no real organization to the line or who they are boarding. Make sure you get in the line quickly or you could be waiting awhile."
Pros: "Responsive excellent crew."
Cons: "Long waits to get to the bathroom. Plane dated."
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."

Cons: "The limited wifi connection"
Pros: "The crew were great and boarding went very smoothly."

Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"
Cons: "Checked in online. Needed to drop my snowboard bag off. I had 2 hrs...got in the express line to drop bags with ticket. They kept taking people from every other line in front of us. Took 1 hr to drop a bag. Got through security line and told my boarding pass is no good. 30 min before flight. Back to Swiss. Have a meltdown and finally they help. Now I’m in Geneva and my bags in Zurich..."
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines on an overnight flight. Awful food. Cheap fair seemed like a bargain until you find out that you have to pay an extra charge for the dubious privilege of reserving a seat way back in the 34th row."
Pros: "Great flight. Lots of good food."
Pros: "On board service"
Cons: "the teminal 4 sevice at JFK: the huge line before the security looked like a complete misorder and for no reason lingest lined I ever saw in airports instead of spliting the crowd in shorted lines to every security crew without maku=ing people to pass long lines with the hand luggage and children, it was really and absolutelu=y far from any comfort."
Pros: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"

Cons: "The landing was a little rough, but my friend said that it was windy here in NY. Otherwise excellent all around."

Pros: "Swift ride - no frills- the chocolate square was delicious."
Cons: "Getting off directly onto the tarmac with no gate access- glad it wasn't raining!"

Pros: "Great flight crew and equipment. Courteous and helpful."

Pros: "punctual and friendly enough staff."
Cons: "entertainment and food options were poor and because of the long haul flight once we had a first round of service it was then self serve. I was in a window seat - cld not wake the people beside me and getting up to get water was difficult. Pushed the call button to be told that I cld get it myself!"
