Airline reviews

Pros: "It was a great service overall!"

Pros: "Typical flight and all went well."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Connection time at Narita is too long"

Cons: "Electricity didn’t work in my pod"

Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."

Pros: "The crew is outstanding. A girl two seats away from me barfed and two attendants were there immediately with a bag, cleaning wipes, etc. They are very friendly and patient with passengers. The next best part was the comfort. I got a good amount of sleep on my nine-hour flight."
Cons: "The movie selection and meals were not bad, but I've had better on other airlines."

Cons: "Boarding in New York could have been better organized"

Pros: "The food and legroom"
Cons: "More movies :)"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Flight attendants"

Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Beautifully presented and tasty Japanese food. Electronic windows."
Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."

Pros: "Sitting in my seat I felt that I had wiggle room for my feet and my arms/elbows. Usually on American flights, I feel like a sardine packed in a can. Even though I was in economy I had plenty of space and was very comfortable during 9 hour flight from BKK to Tokyo."

Pros: "Rebooked me because I went to wrong airport — thanks"
Cons: "The business meal was just okay this time. Not as good as before."

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: "This airline is efficient, polite, and has a great business class product. Seats are large and open. Easy to move into different positions. Tv is in readable large and clear with a mini screen in the remote. The food was outstanding. Waygu beef medium rare. Washrooms are the cleanest in the sky. Definite repeat!"

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff on JAL every trip"

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: "Flight was comfortable enough"
Cons: "4 stars for food and entertainment as it was only an hour flight."

Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."

Pros: "Best customer service"

Cons: "The dinner meal was not what I requested. A roll with breakfast would have helped. The shrimp was good what was under them was not so good. We had to wait tell last minute to sit together."

Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."

Pros: "Customer service was really good"
Cons: "The food always makes it hard to eat anything the next day."

Pros: "The customer service overall was really good."
Cons: "The food always messes up my stomach, where the whole day after I can’t eat anything"

Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."

Pros: "It was pretty comfortable for a 14hour flight and all the flight attendants were super nice and very helpful. Different then most airlines in my opinion. Next time I go to Japan it will be with Japan Airlines no doubt!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like Was leaving the plane."

Pros: "I fly with JAL business class and it was the best business class I have ever experience. The crew was amazingly helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wish they can pronounce English language better. Sometimes I did not understand what did they said. Including the pilot. I don't want to be an American brat, but I did not understand what they said."

Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."

Cons: "Didn't get to go. Thanks for selling me worthless insurance."

Pros: "Glad to make it to Japan safely and back in one piece"
Cons: "Turbulence"

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: "The seats were comfortable but old fashioned. The WiFi was spotty and it would have been nice to have Asian food options."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I asked for a window seat but if was not available. I was told to go to an information desk which were not too close and it turned out that they couldn't help."

Pros: "Great vacation"

Cons: "I never like flying into Narita - each time I have to have my boarding pass reissued and baggage rechecked. I like the YVR process where you just put your bags on a conveyor after clearing customs."

Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."

Pros: "Once I made it through the long line at check in everything went very well. Check in was a bit of a nightmare since Air Busan is shared with Asiana Airlines."
Cons: "I had to stand in line at both Asiana and Air Busan to check in. Made checking in a lot longer than normal."

Pros: "The crew on JAL is excellent. They get pleasure out of providing service to the passenger -- I was in business class."
Cons: "Business class seat on 787 is awful. Does not get to flat bed level. Really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Japan Airline employees are courteous and gracious. The plane and seats were comfortable, and they offered complimentary food and movies. I would definitely fly this airlines again."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this airlines."

Pros: "Short flight."

Pros: "evening flight. not too crowded"
Cons: "delayed by 1 hour meal was so-so"

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"

Pros: "Clean and service was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "I really liked my experience with JAL. The comfort and overall service of the flight was excellent."

Pros: "Food, comfortable, choice of entertainment"

Pros: "Food, good, Too Much even! Beers, sweedish meatballs, and caramel Gelato just to name a few. Actual seat comfort was fine. Stewards performed well."
Cons: "Lies, not JAL....American Airlines. Paid for JAL received American. Checking in sucked, a whole explanation would wreck this page.....could not reserve seats near spouse. ....in flight entertainment was less than mediocre....seat positioning was grueling not able to get comfortable for the 13hour trip."

Pros: "Plenty of legroom and nice updated interior."
Cons: "No complaints this time."

"There was a little delay in the boarding"

Cons: "There was an uncontrolled child kicking my travel companions seat and screaming for much of the flight. I’m not sure what United could do but relocating us or the passengers with the screaming child would have made the flight more comfortable."

Cons: "I was not aware that I flew in Narita and flew out of another airport."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so warm and friendly, always ready with a smile and eager to help."
Cons: "Simply an older aircraft and the entertainment options were lacking compared to other carriers. The news video NHK would not fast forward or rewind but would always start over. Otherwise it was a good flight thanks"

Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you I had to change 3 months ago. I won’t use kayak again."

Pros: "Attentive crew !"

Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"

Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"

Pros: "More leg room than most flights."
Cons: "Baggage drop after on-line check-in very slow. Otherwise everything went very smoothly."

Cons: "Better seats and food. More water please"

Pros: "Food and services were great"
Cons: "Not a large selection to view on the TV"

Pros: "Comfortable seat space and food is great"

Pros: "Both segments Houston to Narita and Narita to Vietnam were pleasant. The seats are spacious, food was fine (nothing exquisite but good enough!). Flight attendants are very attentive. Waster and snacks were provided between meals."
Cons: "It was difficult to understand English announcements on board. Also there wasn’t adequate instructions in Vietnamese. Majority of passengers are Vietnamese family with small children. My suggestion is that instructions in Vietnamese should be made more often to avoid chaos particularly when deplane."

Pros: "Friendly & helpful stewardesses, watched new release movies, good meals, overall a smooth ride."
Cons: "Quite a few passengers with young children crying throughout the trip but I can sympathize trying to keep them occupied on such a long flight."

Pros: "Staff were friendly from check in to disembark. Food was quite good. Boarded on time and people were accomodating of one another in the entry and exit process."
Cons: "I was travelling with my twin 11 yr olds one of whom has limited sight. They normally only allow early boarding of young children, but we need extra time as I have 2 children to organise and my daughters sight dictates that i have to assist her. Other passengers were not impressed. I would like the airlines to take the initiative to have all children boarded early as if we board with everyone else, the aisles will be blocked as my children try to get organised."

Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Dinner"

Cons: "Coming from Kulalampur to Japan I missed flight from Japan to Chicago Ground crew refused to rebook me to next flight and then argument only booked up to Chicago and I had to call USA and my daughter to help There should be ground crew at gate for people who has short time to catch to facilitate There was no body and I was couple mts late In international flights they should rebook and give hotel I was traveling business class Poor in help Comfort and flight was ok Food not much choices"

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."

Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."

Pros: "Dim sum between Hong Kong & Singapore."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and courteous Entertainment system was pretty good Food was good. They could have given water bottles instead of asking for water."

They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat.

Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."

Pros: "Customer service , crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"

"Good"

Cons: "Wearing a face vizor on top of the face mask is silly"

Pros: "I was flying first time via Qatar and I am very impressed how excellent was everything."

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"

Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "First it was a brand new airplane and only that but it came with good food selection and enough spaces for tall guys like me ."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."

Pros: "Everything!!!! The best airline in the world!"

Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "Lost bag"

Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."

Pros: "The plane is very comfortable and the staff are friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Service was not the same, flight attendants were not attentive or very accommodating. There were very rambunctious children on the flight and they did not consider everyone else by asking the parents to calm their children down instead allowed them to run up and down he aisles screaming etc"

Pros: "attentive crew food was good"
Cons: "old entertainment options little space to move about"

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"

Pros: "I like the staff and the way they treat the passengers and foods too i like , was really good"
Cons: "I didn't like the comfortable part at the plane , it's not that good plane , the spoon ,& knife are not good , the chairs are not comfortable that much as the other planes of Qatar airways,"

Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Nice comfort packet, blanket, and pillow Good service and spacious seating in economy class."

Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."

Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"

Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Out of mango juice and the plane was too old."

Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."

Pros: "Every things"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food quality - lot's of sugar in child meal. Entertainment system slow. We were forced to move the seats into upright position half an hour before landling on a night flight."

Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"

Pros: "Great seats, great crew."
Cons: "Was not anything too exciting on Entertainment with regards to movies, but personal choice really."

Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and the food was good."
Cons: "There was no soap in the toilets on the stretch from Sydney to Dubai. The film choice also seemed poor."

Cons: "Boarding system did not work temporarily and the boarding was delayed"

Pros: "Great food & great entertainment. Love the free WiFi"

Cons: "Food worse quality than before. No snacks as well"

Pros: "Seat was fixed for such a long flight it is hazardous to the spine ."
Cons: "Allow the seat to slightly recline like any other airline"

Pros: "Great crew, excellent legroom"

Cons: "Info system is not that easy to navigate So hard to find a movie"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, good entertainment"
Cons: "Poor gluten free options"

Pros: "The crew were superlative."
Cons: "The seat folded to a flat bed, yet the boulder area remained raised, making the comfort level for a tall person, somewhat rest cited. My neck really quite sore as a result. Was an old plane tho, and the controls for movies , seats etc were archaic"

Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."

Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."

Pros: "Fast and easy"

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Pros: "the seats, the window"
Cons: "fliglth to short"

Cons: "You cancelled my return ticket without informing me or giving a refund. Lied about the refund in the emails you sent me."

Pros: "Crew service, and service at Emirates lounge in Dubai, were outstanding"

Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"

Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"

Pros: "Comfortable overall, not much turbulance"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfort, amenities"

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: "Our seats & the crew."
Cons: "Food was ok & entertainment was ok but not great."

Pros: "A380! Overall is good. I liked a bag of accessories including eye mask and socks."
Cons: "In flight food in Arabic style, my brother didn't like much of that styled food. But I'm OK with it. They provided light meal ( "pide" lamb/veggie filled bread or choice of fruit). The veggie pide was a bit weird. But overall, the food was not so bad."

Pros: "Got upgraded to Business!"
Cons: "Nothing really, crew was professional"

Pros: "Bar in business class"

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: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The fact that I didn't fly due to ill health and got no refund"

Pros: "all entertrainment onboard is excellent ."
Cons: "the flight is good,,but unfortunately the staff is not accomodating that much,,need some basic training on what kind of food you are serving to passenger.."

Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"

Pros: "Emirates doesn't fail! Great service!"
Cons: "On a long flight to Australia- the crew can occasionally tidy up the bathrooms"

Pros: "Everything is very well organised"
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Everything I have come to expect on Emirates Economy, except for boarding and disembarking the aircraft involving bus journeys - and the condition of my suitcase on arrival."
Cons: "1. Use of buses on departure and arrival. The length of the bus journey from the terminal, in a vehicle with no seats, made me suspect we were going the whole way to Geneva by bus. 2. Don't know whether Fly Dubai or Emirates are to blame but my suitcase (a top grade modern Samsonite) was a mess by the time it reached Geneva, with rubber seal on one side of the zip peeled back and almost off. Why can't airlines and terminals ensure baggage is treated with care and respect?"

Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."

Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment, food, and decent leg room in comparison to other airlines. Also, a plus they have a good beverage selection."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"

Pros: "Exceptional crew"
Cons: "My last leg, Dubai to Geneva was not booked as code share with Quantas but, by Quantas, as Emerates directly. This meant that I got no milage credit for the flight. Grrrr."

Pros: "Loved the staff, very friendly and extremely accommodation nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable"

Pros: "The airplane was nice and clean, good selection of movies and music."
Cons: "I didn't like the service! Flight attendants are not very helpful Food was very bad!"

Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."

Pros: "There's nothing not to like"
Cons: "The whole experience is very good"
