Airline reviews

Cons: "Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen."

Pros: "JAL operates with incredible efficiency."

Pros: "Good crews."
Cons: "Space seats."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The chairs were just a little uncomfortable, too firm, but everything else made up for it."

Cons: "Flight attendants"

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."

Pros: "The business class layout was very good. Seats comfortable with excellent cabin staff and the food and its presentation was A+"
Cons: "Hard to think of something here...possibly better movie selection and having to bus from plane to terminal... But that's about it!"

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: "It was impossible to breathe throughout the 13-hour flight. It was very hot and humid. Several people asked for the temperature to be adjusted but they never really took care of it. The food was really cheap and stale--quite a disappointment for an expensive flight Tokyo-New York."

Pros: "Flight attendants were incredibly nice. Seats were comfortable enough. I appreciated the complementary items. Bathroom was spacious and had extra options I normally wouldn’t receive from an American flight."

Cons: "angled flat seats."

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to lightning strike on arriving flight, we were transferred to non stop EVA Airline so we can get home and not need a connecting flight in Japan. JAL did all these arrangements without us requesting it. They also were very polite and got our luggage in time to be on the flight with us. JAL is truly a top airline in the world."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Japan airline will end the flights from Narita to Incheon on 3/25 which doesn’t work for my future trips."

Pros: "Great flying on JAL...such great service and sweet attendants. US carriers could learn a lot from the Japanese carriers...they actually make it enjoyable and easy"

Pros: "JAL is hands above any of the American airlines....so polite, helpful, diligent and graceful. Food much better as well, and newer planes."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "I enjoyed everything! My first flight was a little over 10 hours, but it didn't feel that way. I was very comfortable and the crew took very good care of all of the passengers. Japan Airlines is Ichi Ban!!!"

Pros: "As expected not overly done nor less of comfort and services. Only it was confusing that I had to move from international terminal to Domestic terminal due to first transfer was with in Domestic airport."
Cons: "I have purchased Japan Airline to travel but unexpectedly I had to deal with American Air for half of my flight. God help them please. It was hell from start to finish. Japan Air, I feel sorry for you that your alliance with American Air."

Pros: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."

Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."

Cons: "I wasn't able to pre-select my seat."

Cons: "I’m flying internationa flight but, I can’t get enough or right answer from my question due to Luck of english language. I’m not perfect when it come to this language but I can communicate properly."

Pros: "No major disasters, comfortable seats, on time."

Pros: "Seat width, Crew Service,"
Cons: "Web Site Check in is cumbersome"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Screens were small. Leg space was little to none. Food was trrrible. I will never fly with JAL again"

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: "the staff"

Pros: "The movies they offered."
Cons: "How long it took the flight attendens to come back and take trash and out trays for both of the meals. It made it super uncomfortable in the tiny space available. Also, not enough knee space, especially when the person in front of you puts there seat back. I flew with American Airlines on the way to Japan and I had plenty of room but I wish it was the same coming home."

Pros: "The crew Service"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and the comfort of the seat + size of the screen"
Cons: "Possibly more food options could of been better, only had western or Japanese option"

Pros: "Awesome experience, nothing like any other. Will fly again."

Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Everything was perfect! Thank you for a great experience!"

Cons: "Never make it on flight because the connection flight so messed up. Need to purchase new ticket with different airline finally."

Pros: "It was anything very good, my trips on air are great. all flight attendant did good job.i got good slept well on flight JL 060.so I will choice Japan Airline next time. Thank you very much"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Slow check in at the airport"

Pros: "This was an AA flight.I never expect excellent service from AA."

Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"

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: "that it was actually flown by JAL not china southern"
Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."

Pros: "Even at economy class everything is all inclusive, meals, entertainment, even alcohol. Fast service with a smile. They will go to any length to accommodate your every need."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."

Pros: "The crew's attention to detail, service."
Cons: "Sort of bumpy flight."

Pros: "The boarding was efficient. Cabin and lavatories were clean."
Cons: "The interior seems dated, with old-school channel based entertainment system, unlike the ondemand IFE most Asian airlines are equipped with. Meal service was also very slow - took over 50 minutes to serve the economy cabin. There was no choice of main available.. Main was an array of fish cakes type street snacks. It was edible but not impressive."

Cons: "Flight from Taipei to Tokyo was delayed and ultimately cancelled because of "mechanical failure". Many passengers on the flight including us had international connections through Tokyo, with only an hour between flights. It was clear we were all going to miss this connection, but in a frantic and haphazard way, the JAL crew's only solution at the gate was just to get us all on the next flight out to Tokyo (I believe via China Air) no matter what our individual final destinations were. They said "from Narita, they will handle all your connections to your final destination." This was a bizarre solution. Why not reroute us individually on other partner airlines, through other countries/cities, from this international airport in Taipei, like airlines usually do? (Also, all of this disorganized communication by the JAL crew at the gate was never translated into English, I just happen to speak a little mandarin and was able to understand what they were directing us to do). My wife was the one who searched for an alternative route on her phone (through HK instead of Tokyo) via their partner airline Cathay pacific and showed it to the JAL rep at the transfer counter, and through a series of radio and phone calls, only then did they say "there might be seats left", but they couldn't book the seats for us there. In order to make the flight, we had to sprint ourselves to a completely different terminal and concourse to another transfer counter to finally book our seats on this Cathay flight. Needless to say, our luggage did not get pulled from JAL in time to make it on the Cathay flights, so we are waiting 2-3 days for them to hopefully be found and sent to us. Overall, I was completely disappointed by the JAL staff, who didn't take responsibility or ownership of the situation, and who's solution to just fly everyone out to Tokyo, no matter our final destination, and to leave us to figure out our connections there was extremely short-sighted and irresponsible, and was a total disservice to their customers. I expect much more from this airline. On another note, we flew JAL from Boston to Tokyo, and Tokyo to Taipei: the food was terrible and food options were really subpar for an international flight, I would've expected much better from JAL and the dreamliner flight."

Cons: "Movies and music were very poor."

Pros: "JAL is by far my most favorite airline. Their service overall from check in to the cabin crew is excellent. They always make me feel special, very courteous and friendly."

Cons: "The seats and the flight entertainment."

Pros: "The gate attendant switched me to an earlier flight. Made my night much better."

Pros: "Very"
Cons: "Easier access to entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was very good. Long flights get boring. But that’s not the airlines fault."

Pros: "Cleanliness of the aircraft and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "Entertainment is not free, and you have to have your own device. The food was a very small snack for the length of the flight."

Pros: "It’s wonderful to fly like our grandparents did with the style & comfort along with the service they enjoyed!! I cannot think of any other airline that serves a meal and on going snacks. I feel I got first class service (which I cannot afford) for a coach rate! Stepping onto the plane you get a sense of the islands. I’d recommend this airline to anyone!!"
Cons: "Being a 6 ft woman, leg room is important for me, which I had, but the seat where a bit close together."

Pros: "Line up process to board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was great. Super apologetic for the terrible delay"

Cons: "The WiFi did not work and a snack instead of a meal and having a six hour flight with NO entertainment was not cool in my book"

Pros: "Boarding was great, seats were not too cramped, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Hawaiian Air changed our seat assignments which I did not find out about until checking in for our flight the night before. My wife and I were 20 rows apart and we were moved from aisle seats to window seats. Flight was fully booked so no way to change. The aircraft did not change, so I am unsure why seat assignments changed."

Pros: "Fast boarding and fast disembarking."
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "Everything was fine in general."
Cons: "Turbulance but pilot did not addeess it by saying he would change altitude to avoid it."

Pros: "No food, or entertainment but was fine. quick ride from one island to the other."

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent, airplane was very comfortable and clean."

Pros: "Everyone was smiling and full of aloha spirit as always which is why i LOVE flying w Hawaiian!"
Cons: "Except this time... only time this has happened. Went to get boarding pass- had a small rolling suitcase (bought specifically for carry on and have used for last two years flying 6+ times per year) and a shoulder bag/purse. A woman flagged me down a so walked by saying my rolling case was too large an too heavy. I said “oh no i use this everytime i fly. It’s specifcally for carry on. Also it’s not even full so there’s no way it’s too heavy” also how would she know by looking how much it weights? In short she got very angry at me and said i have no choice but to check it. Then went over to counter and the lady said “you don’t need to check this is the correct size” she was very nice and i explained what happened. I’m just telling you this as maybe some of the newer employees are taking their jobs too seriously. Aloha!"

Pros: "Flight Attendant and flight was on time..."

Pros: "Short flight connection"

Pros: "Staff were amazingly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight to lax was good. It was awesome. The flight to HI sucked. But you can't win them all. I'm happy i guess."
Cons: "Everything was cool. I guess."

Pros: "Larger seats. Snacks"
Cons: "Check in was a pain but we survived."

Pros: "Not that much, your airline is going to a place that is limited in air travel competition."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the buying options for food is dreadful. The seats have no USB to charge a device (the most important feature to me. And every airline is required to have its customers fill out that form to come into Hawaii - BUY A PACK OF PENS!!!!! It's not my responsibility to have a pen - totally annoyed about this one small amenity not being offered. Also I'm sick of hearing your plug for a credit card."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly"

Cons: "Awful to be delayed and stuck at the airport for over 12 hours for anytime especially on a holiday. I was and am livid!"

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Rough landing - HNL is a rough terminal to navigate"

Pros: "Seats were like a park bench, not comfy. Crew indifferent. It was such a short flight maybe that’s the best you can expect, but I would hesitate to book a longer flight on Hawaiian"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Breakfast, juice, smooth flight"

Pros: "Staff very friendly, quick flight but still gave us juice and a map of destination island. Nice touch"

Cons: "Our flight did not leave til 8, boarding was from 7:15-7:40, we arrive a little late, 7:19, but still makable and they would not let us put our bags on the plane. Where is this policy made clear for people? As far as we knew we still had 20 minutes. Our options were we could pay 700+ dollars per person to reroute our plane, or we could go to Hawaii without our stuff, which was just not within reason obviously."

Pros: "In-flight fruit juice was tasty."
Cons: "There was something wrong with the plane. Was not realized until the plane was loaded and doors were shut. We had to deplane and wait for new plane while they got crew transferred and plane ready. Ended up being about an hour delay - not too bad considering."

Cons: "There was no TV's for each individual.. It's a small complaint.. But yea.."

Pros: "And they assigned me a middle seat at the very back. Although I checked in one day prior."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Once we got to the airport we lost all assigned seating. Not good."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the trip was smooth"
Cons: "Food-poor. A plastic bag handed in your lap with 1/2 turkey on white and 1/2 Egg salad sandwich on stale wheat bread! It's so far from the service Hawaiian used to provide that it ruins the reputation more than helps it. Why bother? It's obvious that it's only a half hearted attempt at best. Asked for a better seat n got the seat next to the restroom. It was literally 5 1/2 hours on a flying toilet with people constantly in and out the whole trip. I should at least been warned."

Pros: "A great lunch was provided. Very reasonable upgrade for 6 inches of extra leg room Early departure"

Pros: "Online check in, no luggage, mobile boarding passes, boarded quickly and took off immediately LOL! Ideal flight!"

Pros: "There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name."
Cons: "The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this"

Pros: "We got the seats we wanted, and didn't pay extra for it"
Cons: "The fact that we can't get 2 seats next to each other even"

Pros: "Very smooth boarding, take-off, landing by pilot & crew Very attentive, caring and nice cabin staff Fast baggage claim"
Cons: "Long waits to check baggage Breakfast was too rich (biscuit with spicy cheese), though the fruit was good I didn't mind not having a movie/tv to watch on screen, but would have liked to be able to listen to in-flight music Location of the life vest jackets took away a lot of leg room"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Airline, scheduling, additional fees. Missed connection, communication system was not checked before departure causing a 2 hour ground delay."

Pros: "they run a tight ship"
Cons: "only game in town, so they charge what they want"

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Cons: "Qantas need to improve thier overall customer service"

Pros: "Crew were good. Better service than in business class"

Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"

Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."

Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"

Pros: "Food was delicious and service excellent"
Cons: "Slow customs in Honolulu"

Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"

Cons: "Great! On time"

Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."

Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."

Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."

Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"

Cons: "Food was awful."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"

Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."

Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"

Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"

Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."

Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"

Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"

Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"

Pros: "Typical great Qantas customer service and safety"
Cons: "I don't understand why the fourth busiest route internationally is still so expensive.."

Pros: "Liked service and entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"

Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."

Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"

Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."

Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."

Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"

Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."

Pros: "Always organised"

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

"Flight attendants are so overworked so when I see the their frowning faces barking orders at us I just try to be sympathetic but really, the days of happy flying seem gone."

Pros: "Crew were great. Cookie was good. Seat was comfy to sit in upright."
Cons: "Leg room was poor, flight was overcrowded, seatback wouldn't recline, there simply isn't enough width to the seats in the middle of each row. This should be a perk to balance the perk of a window on one side and extra leg room in the aisle on the other."

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Cons: "Connection flight was only 30 min, plus the 1st flight was delayed... Causing I missed the 2 nd flight"

Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"

Pros: "The plane was brand new!"
Cons: "Every time my husband and I fly our seats get changed from our original picks. I make sure the tickets are linked and they still move us. Very irritating not sitting together especially when you take the time to ensure it doesn't happen."

Pros: "The crew."

Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."
Cons: "More on time performance would be great from Delta. Seats that actually recline and not get stuck. Screens in all the seats to enjoy entertainment."

Pros: "Empty row!"
Cons: "Movie selection More new releases"

Pros: "Did a good job despite the weather during the flight"

Pros: "Food was excellent. I had the pasta. Loved watching movies."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were great!"

Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"

Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."

Cons: "Worst transatlantic flight in 40 years. Filthy old seats and mine had a wet ironed stain. The seat in front of me was broken and reclined into my lap. That made the screen for entertainment unusable. The reading lights didn’t work. The toilets were a mess and never serviced."

Pros: "That we landed an hour early."
Cons: "That the seats were so cramped."

Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"

Pros: "Awesomeness"

Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."

Cons: "N!A"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment Nice crew"
Cons: "The Delta seat assignment and boarding process The flight was delayed"

Cons: "Late with no information"

Pros: "As usual"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough"

Cons: "The vegan meal was not good"

Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"

Pros: "I love flying with Delta because of the entertainment that they provide. It makes the time go by faster. My 5 hour trip was over before I knew it!"

Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude and not very welcoming at all."

Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "It was crouded seat were uncomfortable otherwise ok"

Pros: "On Tim and friendly"

Cons: "Paid $28 for a Wi-Fi package that didn't work. No refund...."

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"

Pros: "It was wonderful to have a non-stop from Rome to Atlanta. The flight was comfortable and punctual. The in-flight entertainment was very good and helped pass the long flight."
Cons: "I liked the complimentary beverage service and many meal and snack interludes, although the food was sub par, especially the snack. I don't know how you can mess up crackers, but they were terrible, even slathered with the accompanying marinara. Also not sure that I ever met a shortbread cookie I didn't like until this trip; why lace it with artificial strawberry flavor?"

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The plan had Wi-Fi and free movies. Plugs for the phones"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Smooth. Great Staff"
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"

Pros: "On time,smooth good servive"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant crew, excellent entertainment, all good great but burrito snack."

Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."

Pros: "Delta Studio with closed caption"
Cons: "some series do not have closed caption"

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."

Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! Very attentive to passenger needs and wants"
Cons: "The seats are just economy seats with the middle seat left open"

Pros: "It doesn't matter how good all of the above were when one of our bags did not make the connection in Atlanta and when it was delivered late at night to my home and it has been torn beyond repair"
Cons: "Bag did not make the connection and it was damaged beyond repair"

Pros: "Friendly attendants; a lot of service available."
Cons: "Movie selection was minimal and mostly outdated; food was small portions and less than interesting choices."

Pros: "The people were great! And it was a smooth ride."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. I could not get comfortable and my tailbone just ached. I tried sitting on a pillow, but that did not help. And the cabin was too cold for me."

Pros: "Liked that I was heading to Fiji for some nice vacation"
Cons: "A lot could have been better, the crew and captain didn’t know the immigration procedures for the United States, both flights late. Then also entertainment was quite lacking on a 7 hour international flight."

Pros: "Crew looked after us so well."
Cons: "Meals could have been better."

Pros: "The crew was great. Food was good."
Cons: "They SERIOUSLY need to update the entertainment on the plane. If everyone has to watch the same movie, which prehistoric in itself, can they at least make a recent movie and not one from the 80's??? They played 2 movies, both from the 80's!"

Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "Interior and entertainment system quite outdated. When trying to turn on the reading lights the ones above the seats before us would go on, not ours (21H was our seat, 20H light would turn on, not ours)"

Pros: "Crew and comfort"
Cons: "Entertainment & Meal"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "More leg room and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Checkin and gate crew were amazing! It was hard to hear the announcement on the intercom in Apia. Too sound was not clear and precise."

Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, professional"
Cons: "FREEZING COLD cabin air temperature, as other reviewers have noted. Despite otherwise comfortable conditions to sleep, this made it impossible to get a good night's sleep."

Pros: "Crew, food, drinks."
Cons: "More in flight entertainment options like movies to choose from."

Pros: "Polite"
Cons: "More selections for movies . Fresh veggies or fruit in meals."

Pros: "Friendly people nice plane"

Pros: "Fantastic crew on board. Great service. Food left a bit to be desired. Entertainment a bit dated but great value for money & extremely punctual"

Pros: "Fuji was Great"

Pros: "I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!"

Pros: "Most people who work for the airline are kind."
Cons: "The quality isn’t there... vegetarian meal was the same on both flights and beyond below par. Planes seem to be pretty past there prime in the 4 flights I have been on. Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up. When I arrived in Los Angeles and found that two zippers had been torn from my bag and one pocket open, the baggage staff scoffed at my claim and told me to go speak to a third party that handles baggage claims... I’ll just steer clear next time."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very nice and liguids were given frequently."
Cons: "The seating needs more room for legs"

Pros: "The movie choices"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane... Even with jackets and blankets on!"

Pros: "Nice food."
Cons: "Planes feel not well maintained, no electric outlets, not enough screens..."

Pros: "Loved the soft good quality complintary blankets they had available for us on every seat as well as pillow. Really made it feel homey and comfortable. Probably the best airline meal I’ve had. It was like a creamy mushroom chicken with mashed potatoes, cheese wedge, crackers, etc."
Cons: "The luggage weight limitation on carry-on bags"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Staff could have had more control.of boarding process. Pax just swarmed the boarding line."

Pros: "We got sone roomy seats it was nice"

Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."

Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The stranded in Apia."

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled which ruined the trip for myself and seven friends."

Pros: "Interection with various crews when ever necessary."
Cons: "The one and a half hours waiting at the immigration. Only 3 officers to serve hundreds in line."

Pros: "Food was really good not many airline offer free meal"
Cons: "Forms and then again on computer"

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Had decent entertainment options and enjoyed the blanket and pillow!"
Cons: "Food, I chose to not even eat the meals after my first experience with Fiji Airways."

Pros: "Flight attendants were terrific, nice to be able to drink and eat with no worries after a week in Christmas Island."
Cons: "I would Jhabvala liked to have a choice of seats in a plane that was not full. Some people had a whole row while others were full."

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable"

Pros: "Good food, good service, efficient boarding. B737-800 in economy can be cramped but thats a given on any airline. Full service flight, will fly again"

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised plenty of legroom and the service was great. Good value and would definitely fly with them again"

Pros: "Time of arrival"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."

Pros: "Free food free booze and free movies music and tv!"
Cons: "The food was only subpar, sloppy eggs and wet chicken but everything else was fine."
