I like the airlines but because I used to fly with Japan airlines.this time not much entertainment and delayed flights and not comfortable compare to my previous flight. Food is not good. Flight attendant are confuse. I had to help other rider because they skip to serve him food.Over all is not Japan airlines that I used to ride.

Great flight. everything was good but food. Pasta for breakfast. Beef flavor dish(not much beef to be found) with rice and couple of small salads.

JAL is a very good airlines. However they insist on mostly Japanese language entertainment, with some Hollywood movies. Food is OK. I prefer traditional breakfast like eggs, bread, sausage, omelate etc. But not pasta..which I got during Tokyo Seattle flight. Also their lunch dinner entries were not western, at least they can have that option. They have good Miso soup.

Service is good and food is very nice.

I like services, food on board is very nice and delicious.

I can’t go to the Thailand Because I put the wrong Thailand pass date. So I can’t go…

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."

The crew are very polite and attentive, the plane is comfy and clean. The food could have been better. It's not for all people's taste. They should give atleast two meals in a 4-5hr flight, a snack and a meal coz the portions are so little.

I used to every time get excited to fly with Thai. this time i had two Thai connections between Tokyo - Bankgkok and Bangkok-Delhi, both times my two young minor children were automatically seated away from me and each other also during checkin process. it took a lot of time and convincing the agent to get my own children seated with me on long international flights!

I tried to check in online thru ANA, couldn't go thru with many attempts until finally I called and the agent mentioned to check in thru united."
Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"
Pros: "Rather new plane; tight, hard, uncomfortable seat architecture. I'm 6 feet tall and 160 pounds -- probably about the 'ideal size' for design. Least comfortable long flight I've had in a very long time."

The crew was very courteous and helpful, great experience!

Cons: "Not every body is doing extra miles to make customer happy"

Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."

Pros: "Okay in general, nothing impressive"
Cons: "Food certainly need improvement, lacking in attention to ensure food quality. Crews need proper training in customer service."
Cons: "Old plane. Technology didn't work"
Pros: "Hotel location is convenient, quite comfortable and clean."
Cons: "I love the foods in Hongkong, so many varieties . Price wise is affordable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight time"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Old plane. Worst food I’ve ever had on a Singapore airlines flight. They need to give up on the seafood spaghetti. It was quite awful. Old plane so entertainment system not up to what is expected these days"
Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."
Pros: "Service was great especially the food"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Friendliness"
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest but it was adequate considering shirt trip"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."
Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine . So I asked the staff for paracetamol when I reach to cabin. She response me very first with medicine and a cup of water . Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."
Cons: "Kids playing and out of control and the flight attendants wouldn't do anything."
Pros: "Very comfortable great personal service. Smooth flight,on schedule."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."
Pros: "Main Entree hot"
Cons: "Cold bread; dessert similar sweetened gak"
Cons: "Long delay with in between flights. No special kits for kids to keep them entertained. Does not even serve drink when order special meal. Leaves the tray for hour before picking up. No transit help in hongkong. I can go on and on."

Pros: "crews are energetic and warm welcoming passengers."
Cons: "aircon temperature is too hot for seat 50H area."
Pros: "First class airline. Great flight, great service, and even the food is better than "not bad". Seriously, Singapore Air offers flights between the U.S. and Asia at very competitive rates, but never seems to skimp on customer care. A well-done experience from start to finish..."
Pros: "The crew was very very attentive. Asked if we wanted water at least 4 times in the first 3 hours of the 12 hour flight before bed. (Red eye flight) They did there jobs well."
Cons: "The dinner choices have been exactly the same for many years now. It’s probably time to bring the menu up to the times again. Food wasn’t bad but it does need a refresh."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and we appreciated the ability to change seats after takeoff."
Pros: "great seats + wifi. Was treated like a human being."
Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"
Pros: "The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand."
Cons: "I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."
Pros: "Crew was okay. Nothing special but not bad."
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."
Pros: "The airline and staff appear to be friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Seating in economy is tight. You really cannot move without annoying the passengers on either side. This also makes eating difficult."
Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."
Pros: "Strong crew service is the highlight of flying Air New Zealand. Plane comfort is good, with nice ambient lighting, decent seats and reasonably spacious toilets. At least for now, they have in-seat entertainment screens with lots of current offerings. Our flight had free wi-fi, a real plus."
Cons: "Boarding with Air New Zealand at Heathrow was complex and poorly organised when compared to the smooth and efficient process at LAX. This has been the case each time I have flown this same route with this airline."
Pros: "Upgrading to Skycoach giving extra leg room was well worth it."
Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."
Cons: "They have to provide better food."
Pros: "The plane, seat, food, amenities, staff, etc were all world class"

Cons: "perfect already!"
Pros: "The service was fantastic"
Cons: "The plane was very cold inside they need keep the cabin warner"

Pros: "Nice seats in Business"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Fast transit connections in Auckland, Good times for departure/arrival"
Cons: "When I booked I chose seats, then the aircraft changed and I ended up with the family split. It would have been nice if they had at least sent an email giving me a chance to select new seats"
Pros: "The gate agents and the gate supervisors were rude and condescending My reservation was changed mid air and even though I made it to the gate 18 to Houston on time and boarding was still in progress I was not allowed to board. I was informed a plane was not a bus that I could hop on anytime I liked. When I protested that I had a confirmed reservation I was calmly told. “We canceled it because we didn’t expect you to make it.”"
Cons: "I missed my Thanksgiving Holiday because some powers that be decided I would not be able to make a connection So instead of waiting to we if I missed it and rebook then, like a normal airline, they preemptively cancelled and denied boarding."
Pros: "Everything. Best service and great seat room."
Cons: "I was charged with an excessive checked baggage of $170 NZ dollars for 1 bag that weighed over 7 kg that Air New Zealand said had to be checked and would not allow as carry on baggage. I challenged the high baggage fee with other Air New Zealand staff, to no avail. I was told that the checked baggage cost for 1 bag had recently gone up from $120 NZD to $170 NZD."
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, food was great, and the overall flight experience was better than the first time travelling this airline. Airhosts/esses we’re very polite as well. Would try it again soon!"

Pros: "Inflight magazine was just the right length for the flight time"
Cons: "Cookie was stale and coffee was nothing special... but that’s typical of all airlines"
Cons: "Narrow isles ment I kept getting bumped the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was pretty much a plain regional hopper. I got upgraded to first but honestly it didn't feel like a significantly different experience besides legroom"
Cons: "Flights was 2.5 hours late due to weather which was the biggest downer."
Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"
Pros: "This flight was great. The team were friendly and the plane was also well air conditioned."
Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable and with enough leg room. The movie selection is always good and the food is excellent"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Awful service, they put me waiting for more than an hour to say that I was in the overbook list so they would need to include me in a flight 3 hours later in another airline. Outrageous!"
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Cons: "the person next too me was overflowing in their seat so much they took up a quarter of my spot.. it was not work making the flight uncomfortable by making a stink about it but I paid for a whole seat not 3/4 of one!"
Pros: "It was a short flight :)"
Cons: "- seat space is tiny, and I'm 6'2" - plane was full to the brim - in-seat TV was annoying: either you paid for something, or it kept turning on and showing advertising - engine noise was terrible. I needed to use noise-cancelling headphones just to hear myself think. - sat on the tarmac in SFO for 1/2 hour before takeoff"
Cons: "Just a bit cramped"
Pros: "Comfortable lots of entertainment options clean flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "no vegetarian options in the main meals"
Cons: "Very small seat"
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They keep teverything movies ng and were polite and happy throughout the flight we will definately fly them again!!"
Pros: "Comfortable Premium Economy seating is well worth the cost for such a long flight. Food was excellent and crew was very attentive. Entertainment system was very limited and clunky to use. The safety briefing is the most entertaining in the industry. Would readily choose New Zealand Air again."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "For how much a ticket cost, they really take advantage of you. 7.5 kilo max carry on... what a joke. My bag ways that without anything packed. It's time for some competition to right their ship."
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."
Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."

Emirates what could gone wrong

Pros: "Good food and excellent service"
Cons: "Noisy plane made the entertainment inaudible"
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: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Free first class upgrades!"
Cons: "Best airline!"
Pros: "Crew was great! For economy class, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything"
Pros: "Food was phenomenal. Unbelievably good."
Cons: "Paid EXTRA for "Twin Seats". The bar in between seats didnt move. VERY uncomfortable for a 14 hour flight. People on that plane were like ANIMALS. Standing on the toilet seats, water all over the floor of the bathroom, out of toilet paper at 7 hours in. Disgusting. Never again."
Pros: "Great crew. More room for seat would be better"
Cons: "All seats should look like the first class seats. I’m a little person and still was cramped. Can’t sit in same position for that long."
Pros: "Very professional and helpful crew. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Seats in economy a little cramped. Better to fly their A-380 double decker as more space."
Pros: "Good flight and crew but......."
Cons: ".........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"
Cons: "The Crew could be more friendly"
Pros: "Great crew, especially Emma from the US and Amanda from Canada."
Pros: "Great movies and responsive crew"
Cons: "Something weird was going on about how food was served and how people went about deciding what to have."
Pros: "very good as expected"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the food is very good. The portions were good and the drink selection is excellent."
Cons: "The seating room is poor for someone who is 6'2" tall. My wife had issues with her ankles swelling. When we tried to get a cold compress to put on them we never received it. We also asked for some fruit instead of the pizza snack and didn't receive it either. I know you don't have much control over passengers, but we had a two year old child in our seating area and it screamed and cried virtually the entire 14 hour flight. Very annoying."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment and nice crew. The flight was good so I could sleep from time to time."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to have one stop in Dubai. But the return route was changed so we had 2 stops, one in Dubai and another one in New York with long hours until the next connection. I arrived in Seattle a day later which made me lose a working day."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not always available for requests. I suppose I could have used the "attendant call button" but it would have been nicer if they were more observant when I was looking at them with a look of "I need something" as they walked by"
Cons: "Boarding process seems standard - always takes a long time to board and disembark. Older planes have screens with poor touchscreen responsiveness and poor resolution. I was surprised to see that the short-haul flights had better screens than the long-haul flights. I was on a 3 1/2 hour flight each way from Dubai/Delhi with beautiful screens but the long-haul each way from Dubai/Seattle had the crappy screens."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The person in front put his seat back and therefore I couldn’t watch my TV. No choice for food."
Pros: "The crew & the ground personnel! Very polite, helpful & efficient!"
Cons: "I loved flying by Emirate! But not anymore! Too conjested!! You keep raising the fares but continue taking away the few perks that used to set you aside from other airlines! The food was less than ordinary! Sadly, you have taken away the open buffet between meals. This buffet of fresh fruit, chocolates & healthy bars were welcome & much appreciated! The little pouch with few essential things for travellers was very useful......you've taken take away too! Qatar, Turkish or Itthehad Airlines are beckoning me!"
Pros: "I like that flights are on time, food is ok, staff is pleasant,"
Cons: "Very strict on hand luggage weights, trying to make money on it"
Pros: "entertainment part made time fly from Dubai to Seattle and staff too were awesome."
Cons: "15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air."
Cons: "No room to stretch feet out, couldn't straighten legs out. I walked as much as I could, but my ankles and legs were swollen for three days after flight."
Pros: "The food, crew and comfort were as good as can be on a 14 hour flight."
Cons: "The crew were so friendly"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Wonderful service. Great entertainment. Excellent service all round."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding at DXB to landing at SEA was excellent. Crew was very friendly and patient and food was great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."
Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "their hospitality"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome"
Cons: "Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier. Boarding at Dubai has become a mess ever since Trump instituted a restriction on carry-on electronic devices for flights to the US originating from certain middle eastern counties."
Pros: "Emirates makes it a bit more comfortable than other carriers while there is nothing we can do about the long flight and being in a crowded space."
Cons: "Prepare for more and more security measures."
Cons: "missed the flight to seattle due to emirates delays, total travel time was 50 hours instead of 20, what a nightmare"
Pros: "I appreciate that staff disrupts passengers as least as possible, and is generally helpful."
Cons: "Food was better on the way to Dubai/Kochi but definitely not bad."
Pros: "Flight staff was responsive and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are hard. Had to sit on pillow and blanket to soften. Entertainment screen did not work properly (would not follow finger movement - seat 45A. I did not tell staff."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were spectacular and the availability of the crew was first-rate."
Cons: "The late arrival from Bahrain (0130) required a 40 minute bus ride to the terminal, which reflects poorly on the reputation of Emirates and the Dubai airport in general. It felt very poorly organized and shoddily run."
Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "Excellent experience"
Cons: "I got food poisoning on this flight. Cramped in the middle seat for 14 hours while throwing up was not pleasant."
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."
Pros: "Its a 14 hour flight and there were some seats open so we were allowed to feel free and use them just so we can sleep better if we wanted to...."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "PLenty of room (for tourist class), great entertainment system."
Cons: "The crew did not pass through the cabin frequently enough to collect trash. As a result, a lot of trash built up in the seats and aisles during the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew and service were great. Food was very good."
Cons: "Seats in economy are tight. Headphone jack is two pronged and no adapter so you are forced to use their cheesy headphones. Bring your own adapter."
Pros: "There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate."
Cons: "I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!"
Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "A big lady sat in the empty seat because it was on the isle....dang it"
Pros: "The crew were courteous on the return flight, accommodating . They took too long to retrieve trash after food and drink services. The chairs recline too far back limiting the leg room, moreso knee room of the parties sitting behind the reclined chairs"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."
Cons: "When I was boarding on my 14 hour flight from Dubai to the US, I was briefly informed by the Emirates boarding staff that my seat had been changed. I had specifically chosen my aisle seat because I like to stand often on long flights, so I was concerned that it had been changed. When I tried to get more information from the staff member, he dismissively said "Ma'am, this is a good seat" and handed me my ticket without even making eye contact. There was no apology or courtesy of any kind. I ended up with a window seat and I had to crawl over two other people throughout the 14 hour flight to use the restroom or stretch my legs. I expected more courtesy from the staff for this kind of inconvenience and will rethink my flight plans in the future to avoid Dubai."
Cons: "Us passengers are obviously an inconvenience to the crew"
Pros: "The coffee was good for breakfast. After an overnight sleep, one wants coffee a.s.a.p. The scrambled egg breakfast was good and tasty. The croissant was fresh. The Batata bhaji was quite good. I appreciate the pre-meal wash cloths. Again, I like the good choice of movies/TV programs, as mentioned in my previous flight. The vegetarian pizza was very good. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I would like to be offered a second cup of coffee for breakfast, as the cups are small (not complaining about the size of the cups, as they are standard on planes). I asked for tea after lunch which when I tasted, it was only warm, not drinkable. I told the flight attendant and asked for a new cup of tea. I didn't get it until later, I asked again. This time I got it, but it was weak and not a good cup of tea. It was like a tea bag had been dipped once into hot water. Pre-lunch drinks were not served until after lunch."
