Japanese flight was awesome.

Japanese flight was awesome.

Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

Cons: "one crew member did not like her job, tossed the food to you, and was not pleasant like all the others."
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."
Pros: "Boarding very efficient."

Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

Cons: "more movie options!"

By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet).

No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours.

Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am.

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."
Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."

Cons: "There was wifi onboard and it was advertised that we could connect and use iMessage, whatsApp and Facebook messenger free of charge but I wasn't able to do so on this flight. I didn't ask about it but this would be an excellent amenity to keep in touch with the people on the ground"
Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."
Pros: "The professionalism of Delta employees, timeliness of flt."
Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"
Cons: "Inwasny aware my small pocket knife wouldn't be accepted at the airport even though it has been cleared before and the staff was a bit rude about it.the food"
Pros: "The flight was bumpy because of storm but the pilots were expert at making the best of flying around it."
Pros: "The crew was very competent and friendly."
Cons: "Insufficient seating area, no meal offered."
Pros: "Within Europe KLM short flights are very good. They give you a snack and something to drink without charge."
Cons: "Seats,are a little tight but like most other airlines."
Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."
Cons: "Seat back entertainment was outdated and non functional. Drinks were served but not a pretzel or peanut to be seen unless you were in first class."
Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"
Pros: "Delta has failed in trying to break into the Aspen market. Their "personal ground crew" was hapless. Half the passenger bags didn't make it on to the plane. When we checked in the ticketing agent was randomly stacking bags in a heap behind her, and not putting them on the conveyor belt. The flight attendant was loud and screechy, saying that it was easier to leave off the bags than take people off the plane. What?? How was this not accounted for before the flight. On the way out, they forgot to build in time to de-ice the plane. SMH"
Pros: "Everything was great. Boarding agents time arrival clean planes all good"
Cons: "I felt singled out by the gate agents for this leg of the flight. The gate agent called me out twice - once just to check if my carry on fit into the sample size container. Then she did it again when we were boarding. I know she knew she'd already asked me before. Because afterwards, she tried to play it off, laughing and saying "I'd already asked you, didn't it". My carry on fit with ease. There were people with larger suitcases all around me but she continuously singled me out."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "I liked the fact that delta gave me free in flight entertainment it was really fun to be able to watch movies and TV shows free of charge."
Cons: "I hated the food I ordered chicken and noodle salad. It as horrid. It was cold and wet and not something you would feed to your dog."
Pros: "Quick flight time even though we left late."
Cons: "Needed larger plane. The passengers were smashed together in small seats."
Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."
Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"
Pros: "Internet"
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "My wife and I chose premium economy for the long flight from L.A. to Sydney. I believe it was well worth paying for the differential level of service."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"
Pros: "Even on a full flight, there was enough overhead storage"
Cons: "Pretzels were lame"
Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."
Pros: "Second flight had more comfortable seating in comparison to our first flight."
Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Plane was a little bigger from Grand Rapids and they moved us around to balance the plane and a lot of us got better seats."
Cons: "Mechanical delays caused me to miss my uncle's funeral."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."
Pros: "The airplane is new"
Cons: "The crew was terrible, so rude, really I don’t understand why there are like that. Is like asking a favor for everything . The seat are to short of space and uncorfortable"
Pros: "Thank god it was a short flight."
Cons: "Was given no preference to get though checkpoints when last flight landed an hour late. My seat was given away so they had to reseat me. The tv was broken and constantly needed to be reset."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Pros: "Ss"
Cons: "Sd"
Pros: "good price."
Cons: "La Guardia Airport is a kind of messy. Some people in AA are rude, specially ground personnel."
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather. No fault of carrier."
Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."
Pros: "Once arrived all was fine. Once arrived all was fine."
Cons: "Being Over hour late. Updates kind of slow. But really hot on the plane"
Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent service and the food was great for an aeroplane meal. Lots of bathrooms and I was always able to access food and water."
Cons: "They still use the dual port for headphones for the entertainment system so you are unable to use your own headphones. I didn't watch anything because of this."
Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"
Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"
Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight crew was exetrmely helpful"
Cons: "Even for a more room seat it was a bit tight"
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Crew didn't smile much."
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Great service from the ground staff to the in flight crew."
Cons: "The crew was great, but we did not like that they made us keep the window shades shut during a daytime flight because of people wanting to watch movies. When we tried to open the shades to look out at the aerial views, they kept telling us to shut them so everyone else could watch TV. We paid the same as everyone else, and it is not fair that we could not enjoy seeing the clouds and the world below...to us that is the best "in flight" entertainment!"
Cons: "I thought I booked a QANTAS flight but I was thrown on a very terrible American Airlines flight. Would not recommend."
Pros: "Nothing much. Really poor quality headphones and that too the crew had hard time giving!! I felt they were very rude every time we asked for something (including water!!)"
Cons: "Everything!! They don't have Asian vegetarian meal?? It's all vegan?? Bread roll felt really hard and person behind me asked for butter/margarine and reply was very rude "we don't have any extras" so I didn't even bother asking!!"
