Cons: "Nothing. It was great. Strongly recommend."
Cons: "The Entertainment screen could have been larger."
Pros: "33" seats"
Pros: "I paid extra to get bulkhead seat. But the monitor won't stay up. So I asked for help. Flight attendant used duct tape for both my monitor and the one next to mine."
Cons: "My boarding pass was marked with SSSS and I was subjected to another security search at the gate in NRT! They laid out all my carry-on stuff in 2 long tables and swabbed both my hands. Then sent me on my way, leaving my passport on the table. Good thing I had the presence of mind to look for it!!!"
Cons: "Good space with large seats. Good food and service."
Cons: "Very good airline except for the fact that the staff at Narita airport."
Pros: "very good"
Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."
Pros: "Never problems with JAL"
Pros: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."
Cons: "seat was uncomfortable (cushion very hard)"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "I love Japan Airlines. The service is always impeccable. The stewardesses are really nice and very efficient."
Pros: "If I could give the crew 10 stars I'd ask to give em 20 cause they wer AMAZING. So nice and polite i enjoyed my flight so much. They wer very attentive and always smiling. Simply lovely."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent seats and comfort . Good food"
Pros: "Customer service was on point . Thanks Again !"
Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."
Pros: "Wonderful crew!"
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: "Service is amazing ! JAL is handsdown the best ever. The staff, crew and overall flight was great..."
Cons: "The horrible JET LAG I have now lol."
Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."
Pros: "The Japanese know how to service their customers, five stars all the way. The food and drinks (beer) helped too"
Cons: "The video monitor for viewing movies was dated."
Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. 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: "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: "The personnel from JAL was excellent as was the flight, food, boarding and comfort."
Cons: "We were informed our flight was not to land in Haneda but at Narita. We specifically picked that flight pattern because of the ease of traveling from Hawaii to Haneda to Naha. We wouldn't have to drag two large suitcases and a rollaboard after checking out of customs and immigration very far. Same airport to land and depart. Well the arrival airport was changed to Narita $32.00 per person for Airport Limobus to Haneda. We get off at Haneda and are informed we cannot stay there and wait at the domestic airport for our 6:25 am flight to Naha. We had to load all 6 pieces of luggage on the shuttle bus and transfer to the international terminal because they close the domestic terminal at midnight. There was no hotel accommodations at the domestic airport as the hotel was booked two months in advance!!! We had to wait at the international airport terminal till 4:30 am when we then transferred back to the domestic terminal with our 6 pieces of luggage. Tell me how happy you'd be!!!"

Cons: "A small complaint, but the entertainment system in the plane was very old and had poor quality screens."
Pros: "Great vacation"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "Extremely nice flight attendants, little toothbrushes in the bathroom, pretty decent meals. I would definitely flight with again."
Pros: "The stewardesses were wonderful-kind, considerate and hardworking. Great meals and constant attention offering drinks. The movie choices were terrific. I stayed up all night watching top flight movies that I had not seen. I would love to travel with them again!"

Pros: "Best and consistent service."
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."
Cons: "Some turbulence awoke us midway through the overnight flight."
Pros: "The entertainment system was grest with many movie optionstar and a large screen for viewing. The seat was very comfortable and there plenty of leg room."

Pros: "Since I had back pain,I really like that I could checked in two luggages. Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
Pros: "Service was excellent - Flight attendants were friendly and professional."
Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "Well-appointed airliner. Good food, comfortable seats, wide range of in-flight entertainment. And, as always, extremely polite and accommodating attendants."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough for comfort. I would trade this for leg-room."
Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
Cons: "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."
Pros: "Loved the food"
Pros: "Crews were great. Seats space could be better ... overall caring & attentiveness of crew members make a lot of difference."

Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."

Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"

Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."

Yesterday, I got home 1.5hrs later than I should have. I have also to pay for additional surcharge due to midnight cab fare.

Cons: "My personal stuff been stolen in airports"
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?"
Cons: "Seat number was the same but different position from one reserved online"
Pros: "Dedicated to customer service"
Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."
Cons: "No internet and the food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."
Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."
Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."
Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
Pros: "I like everything about Qatar Airways"
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class"
Pros: "Food and crew was good"
Cons: "An adults only section would be great as there were a lot of screaming children on board, also seats were a bit on the small side"
Pros: "Some of the crew were friendly, certainly not all of them."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, food was subpar. Paid extra for a “twin” seat and after this experience I think passengers should be paid extra to sit here."
Pros: "Food is amazing, planes are good."
Cons: "The boarding crew at the gate did not say anything while weighing the carry on bag. I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit. In general passenger do carry valuable stuff in carry on bag. I had to follow whatever I was told."
Pros: "Crew was professional, qiality of food great"
Cons: "Boarding is better done row-wise than by alphabetical groups which is arbitrary"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "Overall good experience."
Cons: "If could have got seats of our choice."
Pros: "The crew were attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Crew was average food was below average service was below par. Emirates is slipping. Boarding and deboarding was the worst."
Cons: "Lots to be improved. Crew food boarding on board service."
Pros: "For an economy seat, was very comfortable!! Love the food."
Pros: "Overall a decent flight."
Cons: "Didn’t like the boarding experience. You have somebody look at the boarding pass but then they sent us to a waiting area. The waiting/boarding area didn’t have space to make nice lines fir boarding so it was pretty haphazardly organized. You really can do better."
Cons: "Main problems at Dubai airport. Employee at the airport charged me money for the same luggage that Newark employees said it is according to air line rules. That shocked me. I didn’t buy anything from Dubai. I think it’s not right."
Cons: "Co passenger is rude or showed attitude"
Pros: "nothing out of ordinary"
Cons: "The aircraft has no or little serviceable inflight entertainment. The food offered on board is really bad. Any additional water has to be paid for"
Pros: "very good as expected"
Pros: "Excellent service and smooth take off!"
Pros: "some new movies"
Cons: "Crew was very unprofessional, they need lots of training. Emirates should hire people who can handle english language properly No proper service of food or drinks ... they had all like beer, wines , spirits.. but the crew was not offering anything"
Cons: "again the boarding was an issue. the boarding time was listed at 1:45 am and we arrived at the gate then but there were no announcements about the flight and then the sign said final boarding call. Also for a 14 hour flight there needs to be bottles of water handed out and someone should be on board to clean the rest rooms half way thru the trip"
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Cons: "Both the flights were delayed. No accommodation was offered. With two little kids we planned and even payed more to travel with this airline. Overall, experience was big disappointment. Our expectations were much higher than what we experienced."
Cons: "option to provide some vegetable sandwich must be there for vegetarian people"
Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Nothing. Will always fly Emirates whenever I get the chance."

Yes of course I understand and wouldn't want to move a handicap person to get to my seat but at the same time I believe the seat assignment fee which I paid in advance should be refunded."

Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."
Pros: "That we arrived"
Cons: "Late start, messy boarding, late arrival, got water spashed in mu face and the attendant didn't even apologize, full buses to go to the terminal an long wait for luggage. Quite poor. Also no entertainment, but that's usual on this flight."

Cons: "Food wasn’t good. Movies selection is not good."

Pros: "Flight was full, but generous seat pitch and efficient crew made the difference!"
Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Pros: "The food was better than the last time."
Cons: "Our itinerary did not show that we had to transit in Chiangmai. It came as a surprise when we checked in at the airport. That was very misleading. We had to remove our hand luggage at each stop."
Pros: "The staff were extremely helpful boarding me even when my previous domestic flight arrived late and I was able to board and check in my luggage half hour before take off time"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. I was carrying medication that needed to be in a cool box. A flight attendant provided me with ice cubes wrapped in plastic bag and paper towel. She checked with me from time to time to ensure that the medication was kept in the proper temperature during the flight. That was first class service and I couldn't thank her enough."

Pros: "Great legroom in exit row, staff very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding terrible, utter chaos, seat very narrow"
Pros: "Good service and kind staff."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working and the crew didn't reboot it until half way through the flight. Any amount of movement from the seat in front of me (either from a slight adjustment from the person sitting in front of me to turbulence) and the tv would go black for a few seconds. It would also change to a red hue from time to time."
Cons: "Right from how rude the flight attendants are to how the ground staff can forget of something as basic as informing passengers that their flight has been delayed by 6 hours. Furthermore, the no one from the ground personnel to the flight crew have any answers to why passengers upon boarding their flight are kept waiting for an hour on the plane before actual take-off. While on flight, flight attendants initially refused to serve us food stating that we should've ordered in advance. This was NOT mentioned during booking & clearly stated that food would be served as complimentary as per any International flight. I've been flying international for the past 10 years & have never come across such an incompetent lot. This was our honeymoon trip to Thailand & we 'Thank' Thai Airways for ruining it. Will never ever make the mistake of flying with them. And will make sure our friends & family do the same."

Pros: "seats are comfortable, service is mediocre"
Cons: "Boarding in Brussels is always a hassle. The plane is never ready for boarding and one has to wait long time to access the plane. They start boarding but do not open the doors of the plane so everybody has to wait long in the tunnel to access the plane. It would be better not to start boarding."
Pros: "Ground agents were courteous and boarding was well-managed and quick"
Cons: "Difficult to converse with on-board crew who were not very well-versed in communicating in English. It is evident that the in-flight crew preferred conversing with passengers who could speak Thai. Seats were cramped and not enough leg-room. Very uncomfortable for a 6 hour flight Service crew adopted a "get water/juice from the galley trays yourselves". Having requested vegan/vegetarian food, the food options were limited and very bland. They lacked flavor and were not properly cooked. In-flight entertainment options was old and in-seat monitors were small."
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "OK, so it's a plane, and I'm in economy. Still, the crew makes you believe they're actually glad you're on board, and the amenities are quite good for economy travel. No complaints."

Cons: "My sister died and I wanted to change the date of my ticket and Thai would not cooperate at all, on the other hand Delta changes all my tickets so I could return to the states with no additional fees. Thai said economy call was full on my requested change date but they had Business Class tickets available, and I ask if I could apply the cost of my economy ticket amount to the Business Class ticket and they said no, that I could only purchase a new Business Class ticket. Real accommodating when you have an emergency."
Pros: "In an exit row seat, so plenty of space and the crew were very friendly."
