Airline reviews

Pros: "Economy was surprisingly comfortable. Boarding and deplaning were very quick."
Cons: "Not a ton of movies to choose from. Enough, but less than most domestic US flights."

Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
Cons: "Not one thing."

Pros: "Flight was typical."
Cons: "No direction for the connecting flight and no help to understand the connecting flights."

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Pros: "Simple check in and boarding, right on time."

Pros: "33" seats"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Seat super comfy"
Cons: "All okay"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and food was great. Japan air was a much better buy than any American company. I will look for Japan air for any flights I take in the future."
Cons: "Nothing. The experience for international economy was perfect."

Pros: "The crew amazing. Food was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing. This company deserves its reputation for excellence."

Pros: "Soo Much Food! Crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "They didn’t offer a vegetarian meal option in flight, but there was enough sides that it didn’t really matter."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The meal choices were great !"

Cons: "PA announcements could have been louder. I also had difficulty understanding when I could hear the English words."

Pros: "As always"

Pros: "Overall is good :)"

Pros: "The staff were fantastic nothing was too much trouble and great fun attitudes."
Cons: "No entertainment systems."

Cons: "Tickets were in the wrong name and the company that issued them refused to fix the problem. I ended up buying a second ticket directly from the airlines."

Pros: "The food and movies"
Cons: "The bitchass mofo next to me who took up two seats and STILL kept touchin my feet. Fuckin weirdo man. JA is a good airline, but clowns like that guy ruin the whole flight."

Cons: "Cancelled flight"

Pros: "Japan Airlines hasn’t the best customer service of any airline I have ever flown. Flight attendants aren’t very friendly and they give you a lot of food. The entertainment was great as well."
Cons: "The staff at Tokyo Narita was slow and unfriendly, which doesn’t reflect well for Japan air."

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."

Cons: "What did you dislike? I purchased our tickets back in November selecting which seats we wanted. When we arrived February 16th they stated we were "standby" after a debated discussion they found us some seats at the very back of the plane (not our selected seats). On our flight back they had us, my husband and I seating in separate sections on the plane (again not our selected seats) 6 rows away from each other. I will NOT recommend using Kayak in the future. Leslie Dickey"

Cons: "No smiling faces of flight attendants. Service was mediocre; food same"

Pros: "The staff were awesome. The facilities were good."

Pros: "The Flight staff are very professional. The food and service were excellent."
Cons: "The only downside was the long layover (7.5 hrs) in Narita airport."

Pros: "The meals. The attention to service details. The seats are better."
Cons: "Ticket reservation follow up."

Pros: "Good service and very clean plane."
Cons: "After having an enjoyable experience on the first Japan Air flight, the second flight from Narita to Manila was late to board & leave, the food was not nearly as appealing and the flight seats were noticeably less comfortable and less roomy than the first flight."

Pros: "The aircraft was excellent."
Cons: "The service could be bit more personal for a long 13 hour flight."

Pros: "The food was good. Seats were as comfortable as any flight is."
Cons: "There were no diet soft drinks available on the flight."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"

Pros: "Clean and nice staff"
Cons: "Seats separated from my friend for 14hrs."

Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "The staff continued to check on the passengers throughout the flight. The food on the flight across the Pacific was excellent for airline food. Used trays did not stay in front of the passengers for a long time. They were removed in a very timely manner."

Cons: "Leg room"

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

Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "Nothing I like , when u buy the ticket they're so nice , but after paid they're very bad, never take care of you, u ask them some help, they're can't"
Cons: "They every bad customer service, I never seen before"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Although, i booked businesss class l. I had to pay 1000 yen for each flight for seat selection. (They were giving me seats 50C) And no lounge facility either. All i got was 2000 yen and upgrade to J class. I had already paid extra for business class. This is highway robbery. No thanks JAL"

Pros: "They will not let me board the plane and I checked the airline before.leaving USA to make sure my ticket is valid and it's OK but when I was to return to USA on april10 they inform me my ticket invalid,cost me alot of money and inconvenience ,God bless"
Cons: "They will not let me board the plane and I checked the airline before.leaving USA to make sure my ticket is valid and it's OK but when I was to return to USA on april10 they inform me my ticket invalid,cost me alot of money and inconvenience ,God bless"

Pros: "Great seating very spacious for economy class.... I got a pillow a blanket and lots of leg room... I enjoyed the in cabin service... TV was nice lots to choice from great movies..... I enjoyed free Wine.... And loved my ice cream treat... Felt like first class.... Thank you"

Pros: "Japan Airlines is a good airline. They treated my family and I well during our flight home. The food was excellent and healthy. We received hot towels before our meals and the staff were friendly and courteous, which is expected of Japanese service, in general. I loved Japan and coming back to the US on a Japanese airline was the best choice! Thanks!"

Pros: "Seats in cos are comfortable and plenty of leg room compare to US airlines. Food selection is very good as well as the service. Flight Attendants were very friendly and attentive. Will fly JAL again!"

Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "There were so many people who walk around an aisle but the flight attendant didn't control them. They kept pushing my seat and hit. I was so uncomfortable."

Cons: "WiFi was very flakey, and could not complete the Credit Card transaction to login... Wasted several hours."

Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Same thing as above"

Pros: "The small touches - the hot soup in the middle of the flight was nice and comforting, the crew were exemplary in their hospitality, the seat was easily the most comfortable Economy Class seat I've sat on."

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I'm an entertainer, very well respected in Hawaii, Japan and the world. and has always traveled JAL. I travel with my guitar and has never had a problem carrying it on board. The staff will usually come a get it and put it in the closet if it didn't fit in the overhead. But I guess recently rules change, and was told I would have to check it in because the closet space is used only for staff and business people. Was told that the 737 was to small for my guitar won't fit overhead. I have taken 737's all my life with Aloha Airlines and told them that my guitar would fit. That gentleman was a JERK! and was'nt very helpful, and told me I couldn't take it on board and I would have to take it to the package store and have them box it up. That spoiled my whole vacation."

Pros: "Love Jan service!!!"

Pros: "Love ANA. Always a pleasure."

Pros: "Amazing crew! Great food service!!"
Cons: "Cleanliness of tray table"

Cons: "These are the friendliest and most helpful people in the business! They are my new go to from now on!"

Pros: "Onboard service was perfect - prompt, friendly and professional"
Cons: "The cabin was always kept a bit warm"

Pros: "The seat is very comfotable. But on the fright from Japan to Bangkok very upset me and my husband. We sat seperated, but on the plane we saw 2 seats available, I asked woman crew that can we move to that seats. She went to talk with the guy who sat on the aisle seat. I heard he said he reserved"
Cons: "The seat beside him for his friend. And the crew said to me she so sorry I couldn't move to sit with my husband. But later no body beside him and he lay down 3 seats all the way. And the crew do nothing for us. We very dissapointed."

Cons: "The boarding was substantially late. There could have been better communication about the delay. However, the plane still landed on time and the flight was quite comfortable"

Cons: "Bigger seat, but compared to other experiences it was very good."

Pros: "Everything was good but we were not able to select seats on the leg from Tokyo to Nagoya until arrive at check in and by that time all seats assigned and we could not be seated together and had to have middle seats. ANA needs to work this out..."
Cons: "The sound for the entertain in seat 26G never worked....unsatisfactory for such a new aircraft “Dreamliner”, make it a dream."

Pros: "Crew was great. Economy premium was definitely worth the extra cost"
Cons: "I wish the flight wasn't 13 hours haha"

Cons: "The way they board the passengers"

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "The staff of ANA took superb care of us from the moment we entered the airport (both SEA and NRT); kindness, excellent food (choose the seafood diet, the food is excellent and you get served first!) and helpful directions in English whenever we looked the slightest bit confused. I will always look to fly ANA going forward. oh, and comfortable economy seats; enough room (I am 6'2") and no numb bum."

Pros: "Food and services"

Pros: "On time. Nice 787 Dreamliner. Very comfortable flight."

Pros: "Service was excellent; I felt well-cared for!"

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."

Cons: "It was too hot in the plane. The plane lacked individual cooling control. We mentioned how warm it was to the flight attendant. It did cool down momentarily, but remained uncomfortably hot the remainder of the flight."

Cons: "The seats in economy are ok and not a good comfortable seat.. and needs improvement on food menu choices. But no problem boarding, the attendants are courteous and nice.."

Pros: "got cancelled"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything went well. ANA customer service wonderful, both at the counter and on the plane. Loved the meals, and fun to watch the available movies and shows at your seat."

Cons: "Lack of airline professional staff at lax airport. There's no set person in charge. We had an emergency return and no one can explain or give us answers for rebooking our flights."

Cons: "See subject line"

Cons: "https://twitter.com/devanshsoni10/status/940564856142311424"

Pros: "Food, comfort, service. Good comfort for an economy ticket. No complaints. Movies worked great, blankets and pillows provided. I thought good leg room, but I am only 5’4”. But I still get crowded on domestic flights—seems the seats get smaller and closer together on short flights every year. ANA was good service to Japan. Business class and first class looked awesome. Maybe someday."

Pros: "The configuration of 787-900 Busn. Class was very good. However need to age Chivas Regal to 18 years like KAL, not ordinary 12 years. Flight attendants were exceptionally efficient, professional, courteous, and outstanding ambassadors for ANA and Japan itself. In the US Marine Corps we would say "Ooo Rah". I may heed to check out your milage club and stop using various carriers for my trans Pacific flights. Thank you very much ANA."

Pros: "After flying domestic flights on US carriers, the idea of getting two meals and free drinks is almost shocking. Even more so when the food (though very Japanese) was quite good quality in economy. If you have to spend 10 hours or more crossing an ocean ANA is certainly a good bet, at least if you don't mind a bento box style meal."

Pros: "Crew very helpful and reassuring though plane late on arrival in tokyo."
Cons: "Due to snow in Seattle area plan departed 2 hours late which made a short connection time, but all went well."

Pros: "Crew are nice, helpful and polite"
Cons: "Airport problems turned it into a very long flight. We circled around Narita for hours"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Although flight was delayed slightly with boarding, flight crew maintained same flight time, thus not adding any further delays."
Cons: "Meal options and/or supplied should be expended to expend options passengers have, especially if one option runs out."

Pros: "Excellent check in experience. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Meals were well prepared and tasty."

Pros: "Ample legroom and there is a good selection of food."
Cons: "Was on overnight transit and I was surprised to find out that the airport closes at 11pm and there was no transit lounge inside the airport. It was too late to book for a hotel outside the airport so had to stay at the meeting point area with other passengers."

Pros: "They made a special dessart for my niece and her husband for their honeymoon trip."
Cons: "Not realky."

Pros: "Wonderful leg room for the flight, great selection of movies, wonderful staff, food is excellent, bathroom clean and large for airplane. Truly this was a fantastic experience"
Cons: "Nothing, they did run out of my breakfast food choice but the other choice ended up being great so Can't complain...."

Pros: "The food on board was great! Crew members were friendly!"

Pros: "Food and movies."
Cons: "One of the stewardess had an unfriendly look on her face."

Pros: "stewards very polite"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable"

Pros: "The airline made sure my family sat together when I couldn't get seats together online. The food was waaaaaay better than the US carriers, and the service was impeccable. 5 stars for ANA all around!"

Pros: "The stewardess constantly walked the aisle looking to assist the passengers...no disappearing act like one finds on other airlines. I was in business class, so the food was very tasty."

Pros: "Crew and service was awesome"
Cons: "Not enough choices of entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent service, free new release in-flight movies, comfortable seating, plenty of food and drink included."

Pros: "Excellent plane, accessories. Friendly staff as you expect from ANA. Very comfortable trip."

Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"

Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."

Pros: "As expected from the Japanese, super polite snd patient."
Cons: "If I was going to pick on something, it would be the English announcements which were somewhat difficult to understand."

Pros: "On time,no delay. Food is good. Crew is concerned about passengers when I request to change to an aisle seat,though my request is not fulfilled. I still appreciate the crew's effort."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."

Pros: "I liked my aisle seat. The plane was clean. Crew professional. Temperature comfortable. Pillow, blankets, and headphones given."
Cons: "No instructions on how to use the remote for the television."

Cons: "VGML food was not good. Needs significant changes"

Cons: "Time to renew the aircraft 777-300"

Pros: "Crew were amazing and great entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "Overall, the staff was amazing, so as the food and cleanliness"
Cons: "The space between the seats in economic seat"

Pros: "Great inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Have WiFi that is working"

Cons: "20 min late but acceptable for a 15 hr flight"

Cons: "Somewhat limited recent release movies compared to Emirates."

Cons: "flight on time. flight was delayed and gate changed"

Cons: "Nothing significant!"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."

Cons: "Transit time is good for way too tight"

Pros: "Better flight as bigger craft and no neighbours in my row so I got some sleep."

Pros: "Everyrhing"
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Cons: "Old plane. Technology didn't work"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was very attendant!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Food, service"

Pros: "Everything was excellent, and we even arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled..... super."
Cons: "no problems"

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."

Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"

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

Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"

Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "leg space"

Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"

Cons: "Food not hood"

Cons: "Service"

Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."

Pros: "Modern Aircraft , good seat ,Crew friendliness"

Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"

Pros: "The people were excellent."
Cons: "I had planned to check an extra piece of luggage, gifts and purchases for church needs. They wanted to charge me $3,655(!!!) for that. Absurd. I had to leave the suitcase behind. I will probably fly on a different airline whenever I go to Russia now."

Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."

Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."

Cons: "The crew was rude when asking me to window shed."

Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."

Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."
Cons: "But we were meant to fly on an A380. This was an A320. Nowhere near the same legroom. Less entertainment options. No USB charging."

Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."

Pros: "Made Econ class feel like biz :)"

Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"

Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."

Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. 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. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly and approachable"

Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."

Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."

Pros: "Service was good, but then that's expected."
Cons: "Leg room was bad... The foot rest attached to the seat in front of me kept lowering itself on its own."

Pros: "1. Clean. 2. Punctual. 3. Coke Zero."

Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival. The A350 aircraft feels roomy. Most importantly, given the total duration of the flight, it was a pretty good experience on-board."
Cons: "The seats and especially the hand-rests on the A350 seem very slim and flimsy. The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."

Cons: "Flight was a little long!"

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"

Pros: "Much better than average meals"
Cons: "more cell phone charging stations at the airport"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The flight took off late more than an hour"

Pros: "Love the service of qattar"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Excellent crew and food."
Cons: "No WiFi."

Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food Plane was freezing on international flights and at 3:50am in the morning pls provide blankets to all"

Pros: "Air hostesses are classic.The plane very spacious ."
Cons: "Wait time to connect from Doha too longNo hotel accommodation."

Pros: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."
Cons: "Little bit congested."

Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."

Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"

Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "Best host staff"

Pros: "Terry was wonderful"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."

Pros: "food, crew ."
Cons: "entertainment choices for Hollywood movies are limited."

Cons: "Out dated inflight entertainment system"

Pros: "Everything was perfect! From boarding the flight, decor, hospitality, clean, comfortable and my special meal selection was always right. The flight attendants greeted me before meals and insured me that they received my meal order."

Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed. I had to book another plane to return to US which cost me $1500. Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"

Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Had a great experience with this flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Two meals served. Too many chicken options, so alternates quickly ran out. Also first drinks were served 3.5 hours after boarding gate opened. No drink options at boarding gate."

Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"

Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"

Pros: "Boeing 787 with comfortable seats and large dimmable windows; handed out menus and two meals served; nice crew."
Cons: "The 787 entertainment system seems buggier than that on the A380—possibly an older system?"

Cons: "Worse staff at mumbai airport. Even thou i was ready to pay for the upgrade to business class. They told me am not eligible to do it. Extremly dissappointed with the airline and staff"

Pros: "I slept most of the flight and awoke to the smiling faces of the flight attendants."
Cons: "Long time to check in. Not the airlines fault. Passengers had so much luggage, I didn't think the plane would leave the ground. There should be a line for people who travel light."

Cons: "My overhead light didn't work, my tray was broken, my headset was faulty (they replaced it on my 3rd request, my luggage didn't appear on the carousel for 1 hour and 50 minutes."

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."

Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."
Cons: "Not much to complain about, this airlines is consistently ranked above others in surveys. From my first time flying aboard Qatar, I was not unsatisfied."

Pros: "Service was excellent and food was all right. I do not eat meat or dairy but there was still some food for me on this flight."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "Not a lot -14 hrs in cattle class is no fun."
Cons: "Toilet out of order from beginning of very long flight. Food ordinary. Doha airport transfer awful."

Cons: "When covid don't exists"

Cons: "The crew should speak up and wait for answers before moving quickly away with beverages. Seat cushions are hard and thin. movie selections are terrible and few. worst selection ever."

Cons: "Food and service."

Cons: "They should always have WiFi!"

Pros: "The whole travel experience on Asiana is great from easy check in to great onboard crew, food and service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were kind and always checking on passengers."
Cons: "Need more entertainment options."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "(Business class) Friendly, helpful crew. Very good food and a pretty comfortable and adjustable seat that was great for two passengers travelling together."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was a bit outdated."

Pros: "Best flight I’ve ever been on!"
Cons: "It had just snowed 20” in Seattle, so we had a short delay."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "More subtitled movies in English."

Pros: "Good leg room, nice food, and friendly professional staff."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."

Pros: "They are accommodating and respectful"
Cons: "Fair enough"

Pros: "I'll give a more complete and less-biased review if I get it back!"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "one check-in crew (female) at gate was not very nice. My mom is disabled & in her personal wheelchair. The other check-in crew members told us (5 total) to go together to board the plane then this female staff told us we can only have one family member go in with my mom (to take care of the wheelchair then assist her on the plane) next time we board the plane. Their messages are inconsistent & her attitude was uncalled for, especially when she let other disabled passengers on with their more than one family members & the other Asiana staff members told us to go in at the same time."

Pros: "Great crew and food on-board"
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized"

Cons: "That made me stay overnight in Korea."

Pros: "The crew was great and the ammentities made me feel comfortable"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Limited entertainment"

Pros: "We liked the service and food and had plenty of space since the flight was half empty."
Cons: "Flight was 50 minutes late leaving Seattle because Asiana was waiting for a connecting flight. We still made our connection in Seoul so no problem."

Pros: "Spacious plane"

Pros: "The crew is great. Seats are more comfortable than other airlines. They feed you lots of food. They are my favorite airline."
Cons: "Some planes don't have the foot rest. It makes a huge difference in comfort."

Pros: "Not much. Plane was almost on time."
Cons: "Disgusting food, old plane with terrible seatback screens as well as movie selection."

Cons: "Flight departed and arrived almost two hours late. Unacceptable especially since it wasn’t mechanical but waited for a connecting flight. Now I may not be able to get a ride out of the airport and back to my camp in time for curfew."

Cons: "Food options terrible for Asian vegetarian"

Cons: "Broke my luggage. Twice in a row."

Pros: "Kind and professional service."
Cons: "Food I like to have was run out so I had to eat whatever available."

Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and very attentive!"
Cons: "There was not any WiFi though it was advertised."

Cons: "Flight was frigid."

Pros: "Crew was very nice..did all they could do"
Cons: "Food terrible..seats not comfortable..few entertainment choices"

Pros: "Checkin was easy and quick. Crew everywhere was mostly courteous. A ground crew in incheon even called my hotel to request my shuttle from his own cell phone! Excellent service, and they were all gracious and helpful till then end! There was some difficulty in coming communicating in English but still I feel we were treated well. Thank you Asiana!"
Cons: "One thing I didn't like. My dad needed handicap assistance but he can walk, so we lined up to the side of the terminal where priority boarding will take place. As I saw crew members assisting and lining up wheelchaired passengers and approached one guy to tell him my dad needed wheelchair assistance, he dismissively looked at me and my dad and told me 'well if you want to sit on a wheelchair go sit on a wheelchair, and walked away assisting other passengers. that was so unhelpful! They were also very strict about weight AND size of carry on luggage, but inconsistently so though. With 2 kids and a handicapped dad, one of my cartons with a 'approved' tag was flagged at the gate and required to be checked in. As I didn't want any more hassle, I said yes so my daughter and I ended up with nonovernight clothes for our incheon stay."

Pros: "Great meals and service."

Cons: "Delayed boarding and landing by an hour. Missed connection."

Pros: "The quality of food."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing, not enough announcements."

Pros: "After flight. No jet lag always a problem for me."
Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Everything! Food, the seat, entertainment everything! I cannot ask for more. Plus points for the cabin crew of flight OZ271, they are the best! ❤️"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Though not particularly personable, Flight attendants were generally efficient at their tasks. i.e. No mistakes with pre-arranged special meal requests."
Cons: "1) The ground staff in SEA never said a single 'please' or 'thank you', let alone any eye contact or even a mere 'you're welcome' in response to my expressions of thanks; I was made to thoroughly feel like a mere transaction. Clearly, Asiana severely needs basic manner- training for its staff. (this isn't the 1st time I've experienced rudeness from Asiana staff, but I just ignored it & chucked it up to their tired busy working days.) 2) We sat on the tarmac for an hour, exactly. We departed 1 hour later than scheduled, despite a short connection, which they, themselves, scheduled into this flight! ..."

Pros: "The crew are the best and attention is also excellent"
Cons: "The seating is hard and is hard on your back, legs and neck. Movie selection is very little and not very good. The bathrooms should be periodically cleaned down and sanitized with a light solution to be and feel clean."

Pros: "I like the access to charging my phone in the seat."
Cons: "The food options were not very good this trip."

Cons: "Sound didn't work on entertainment system And food was not good"

Pros: "Stewards service"
Cons: "Always delayed"

Pros: "Great crew and great service"
Cons: "Seating was very cramped"

Pros: "Staff was great, didn't take anything from my unlocked bag."
Cons: "When I picked up my checked luggage, one of the bags had been unlocked, and not relocked. Nothing was missing that I noticed. There was a slip inside from the tsa saying they searched it. I don't know who failed to lock it, but that's kinda concerning to me."

Pros: "I like the food"

Cons: "This flight was delayed because they sold their empty seats to other airlines and allowed for those people to make it. However, those who had connecting flights weren't able to make it and had to stay overnight in Korea. The next flight arrived 14 hours after the original scheduled flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the on-board entertainment options were decent enough. I had the gluten free meal plan which was ok. The ladies were very organized and I got my meal before the rest of the plane."
Cons: "The plane was delayed so our supposed hour and a half layover turned into a mad mad dash across the airport and through security, again. It would have been extremely helpful if they could have gotten the two handfuls of us passengers off before everyone else so we could get to our connecting flight with the same airliner..."

Pros: "The plane crew was awesome"
Cons: "But when I did my check in it took so long because neither of the asiana staff knew the condition or policy of my quantas itinerary. I don't know if it was the system but they should have managed better the situation. At last they took care of it but lost so much time. Besides everyone got nervous and I felt a little uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nice choice of recent movies. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was somewhat delayed."

Pros: "Crew was greatest part of this flight, as they were very friendly and attentive. The bread was warm and tasty."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late departing; plane was old and did not have lie flat seats in BIZ; luggage was damp when it arrived; food was very bland tasting; entertainment system was not very clear and was difficult to control."

Pros: "My travel from Manila to Seattle via Asiana airline can be describe as good. The crew are very accomodating, the food was okay. The plane was a bit spacious., clean. But in Inciong going back to Manila, the ground crew, those in charge for the elderlies, were not gentle, the services was.. There was chaos as to where the entrance for passengers is. I wish the manage,ent can look into this, so that next time we travel again, we shall patronize the airline.."
