Airline reviews

Pros: "Typical JAL, nearly everything was fantastic."
Cons: "I don't think it could be made better but legroom on this flight was cramped. Certain planes in the JAL fleet have really cramped legroom and uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."

Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."

Pros: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."

Pros: "Good space between seats. Cleanest of the restroom. Nice crew service"

Pros: "Best customer service"

Pros: "Service was exquisite."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Food was fair, not great."

Pros: "Customer service was really good"

Cons: "Too long and no rest."

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: "Each seat had their own screens, and there was a small footrest available for each seat."
Cons: "The food was uncharacteristically bad for JAL. They served some sort of French chef's dish that was terrible. Normally, JAL has great food that I love to eat. The plane was also pretty old so it felt more cramped than usual, and the seats we uncomfortable."

Pros: "Service is amazing ! JAL is handsdown the best ever. The staff, crew and overall flight was great..."
Cons: "The horrible JET LAG I have now lol."

Pros: "Everyone is polite, helpful, and the flight was quite pleasant."

Pros: "Great service! Also, the food and beer that came with my flight was awesome."

Pros: "Friendly crew members and prompt service."
Cons: "Some seats were noisy. When passengers moved it would make creaking sounds so very hard to relax or sleep on the flight. Row 23/24 area left side."

Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "The airplane and all"
Cons: "A little bit in the sakura lounge"

Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."

Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."

Pros: "JAL used to be a premium airline like Korean Air"
Cons: "Now JAL is like American Air, just stuffing a greyhound full of souls."

Pros: "The crew were all exceptionally pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "I didn't care at all for the food."

Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."

Pros: "Flight attendants and ticket agents were very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too!"
Cons: "Small overhead bin. Not deep enough, I had to turn my suitcase sideways. Luckily there was no one in our middle seat or I'm not sure where they would've put their baggage."

Pros: "The best airline I have flown in. Plenty of room and the in-flight service was excellent."

Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."

Pros: "very friendly and very helpful from checkin in to departing"
Cons: "some flt attendants didnt speak english or they didnt understand what i was saying. (but it was fine, i was flying on a Japanese airline and didnt expect them to speak english."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed. I think their system went down. Food wasn't bad. But I mean really is airline food ever good?"

Pros: "The Japanese flight attentants were excellent. Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the other asian flight attendants. They were rude. Asked for water, she said we're not serving water only juice at this time. Asked for Consume or Dashi there weren't any. asked for diet coke they ran out. very small things but weren't able to satisfy our trip back to HNL."

Pros: "Best and consistent service."

Pros: "Best prices for quality service. If the prices for JAL are within $30, I will always select JAL."

Pros: "ANA's staff were professional and helpful. They will do their very best to accommodate your request within reason, very satisfied how they handled our issue."

Pros: "Crew amazing and food very good."
Cons: "Crew woke us up 2 hours before landing, would ha e been great to sleep longer."

Cons: "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"

Cons: "Seats are very very narrow"

Cons: "Flight attendant didn't mention so well about drink service."

Cons: "I suppose the food could be better."

Pros: "Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable planes. On time flights."

Cons: "The flight left late and it was extremely hot in the cabin. It was a good thing that our connecting flight was a couple of doors down or we would not have made it, we sat on the runway waiting for our turn"

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: "5 stars around"

Cons: "Food was disappointing for business class ticket. Seats did not recline all of the way."

Pros: "My 96-yr-old father was given an airport wheelchair after we checked his own transport chair. He was wheeled through security and to the departure gate. We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."

Cons: "Very hard landing."

Pros: "I slept most of the way home so didn`t use the entertainment."

Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."
Cons: "Surprised that their recently acquired 787s don't all have WLAN! Wanted to do some work ... but ... maybe enforced disconnection is a good thing sometimes :)"

Pros: "Great service, accommodating staff. Seats were comfortable."

Cons: "limited movie selections"

Pros: "Great movies!!"
Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."

Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "0"

Cons: "Have a choice of both sweet & savoury snacks onboard."

Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."

Cons: "Lost 2 of 3 bags. Still don’t have them. Some staff very helpful and empathetic. Some staff very rude and abrasive. Didn’t want to take ownership and work to correct the problem. Had a “not my problem” attitude"

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

Cons: "very cramped"

Pros: ":("
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("

Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."

Pros: "Temperature just right and pillows, blankets and better than average reclining seats"

Pros: "Staff was very accommodating"

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Crew on board were nice and helpful."
Cons: "No boarding announcements at Sydney airport. Food selections ran out."

Pros: "Everything on time."

Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."

Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"

Pros: "Was bumped off fjight. Due to not being checked in by Jetstar. Crew was nice and put us on a later Hawaiian."

Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"

Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "Customer service was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no Sauvignon blanc on the wine list"

Pros: "Helpful staff, good vegetarian foods"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very rough ride"

Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable seat in coach on a long haul flight"
Cons: "Rude crew, sub par food, weird boarding process and ride boarding agent that kept my passport for an extended time, poor on flight entertainment aystwm"

Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"

Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"

Cons: "X"

Cons: "My gates changed at Sydney abruptly and some of the ones checking flights through at gate 1c were rude as the Tv screens said my flight was boarding when it wasnt."

Pros: "The special meals for my son and daughter were amazing!"

Cons: "Old 747"

Pros: "We were travelling with our 7 month old baby for the first time and the staff on our flight were sooo amazing. They went above and beyond to help."

Pros: "The crew seemed very helpful and wanted to make it easier for families with children, so I moved from my row of 4 in the middle and got 2 seats on the side instead, which worked out great. I know some flights are more full and can't do this but it was really nice and made the flight more comfortable. Also the wine was a nice touch too :)"
Cons: "Didn't seem nearly as clean of an aircraft as the Virgin Australia flight I had taken on my way into Australia, but maybe it was a newer aircraft. Regardless, the toilet could have been a bit cleaner."

Pros: "Nothing different to any other flight. No stand-out attributes."
Cons: "Filthy tray table. Felt unhygienic to even eat in my seat but I had no choice"

Pros: "Crew was so helpful"
Cons: "Food ...special ordered food didnt make it in any flight. And quality of food needs bit improvement"

Pros: "Plane was nice, seats were very comfortable and staff were very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"

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: "Very smooth flight"
Cons: "No food options by row 29"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and great on board hospitality"
Cons: "Boarding in Nadi international airport for Fiji airways is boarding the passengers from the back of the aircraft first which was different for me"

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

Pros: "Good price but not too good services"
Cons: "Better service management to avoid delay flight. Invest in better quality seats for passengers plus better entertainment value to increase more passenger"

Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Pleasant, fast, and efficient process"
Cons: "Leg space cramped for my tall husband"

Pros: "Great food and drink..complimentary on Fiji Airlines. Economy class seats are bigger than all US airlines!"
Cons: "Late to board d in Fiji due to ‘ operational’ reasons? Late arrival into Honolulu. But overall good flight"

Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."
Cons: "Worst Fiji ground staff at Sydney airport"

Pros: "crew very helpful"
Cons: "larger meal would be niice"

Pros: "Fuji was Great"

Pros: "The staff was all very nice and I always felt like they were doing their best to help. the situation seemed out of their control. It was nice of the airline to provide hotel and meal vouchers. (The meal vouchers didn't go very far at the Sheraton where all the food is very over priced.)"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 16 hours so I missed my entire trip to Fiji. This is devastating to me and I feel I should be compensated. Fiji Airways didn't notify me of the delay until I was already at the airport checking in so it wasted even more time and money. I bought this ticket because the flight time was convenient. Then it left at 3:55am which is the worst time to leave because I couldn't sleep beforehand and felt awful the whole evening and during the flight and after. To top it off the airline wouldn't check my bag through to my final destination. I was very unhappy with how this occurred."

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: "The crew on Fiji Air is incomparable in friendliness."

Cons: "sitting in a plane at Sydney airport for three hours waiting for a part,for the plane was not much fun.But we still got to Apia that day,or maybe late but before 12 midnight was a very long day."

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: "Entertainment"

Pros: "The way we were boarded."
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable and meals were tasteless"

Pros: "Service, space, seats and one meal was good."

Pros: "Thank you for allowing 1 free bag since many carriers now charge even for the 1st one. Hot meal was good but serving curry may not appeal to all passengers."
Cons: "The lines were long to check our bags. I enjoyed the chicken curry meal but other people did not like it since it was a little spicy."

Pros: "Crew's service"
Cons: "Better organizing of boarding"

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

Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."

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: "Our flight to NAN was delayed five hours ; however, when we came to the check-in desk, they knew immediately who we were and informed us of a change. The staff at the desk [a man and a woman] were extremely helpful and verified a change would be acceptable and they put in all of the work to make it happen - we returned an hour later and they had switched us to a flight from SYD - SFO - LAX on Qantas airlines. Things from there went off without a hitch ; while our departure time was still 5 hours later, we arrived to the US earlier than we would have on the SYD-NAN-LAX flight."
Cons: "The five hour delay ; however one cannot have qualms with inclement weather."

Pros: "Staff very good, food and beverage service was delayed or postponed due to turbulence but staff made up for it when service resumed."
Cons: "Entertainment movies not very many new releases."

Pros: "We have our seats by the window on our flight from Sydney to Nadi, we're so happy for that."
Cons: "We have our seats in the middle of the four (4) seats in the isle of the plane, it's so hard to go to the bathroom, which I do need to go often. We really were not happy and suffering during the flight from Nadi to Los Angeles."

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: "The staff was friendly, food delicious, and cabin not too chilly."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Small tight seating and horrible food."

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

Pros: "Very nice plane and it includes food and drinks and wonderful service"
Cons: "Extra bag was pretty expensive"

Cons: "The gate agent was extremely rude and asked to see our passports. She insisted our carry on be checked in. My son is disabled and requires an isle chair. The gate staff did not allow time for him to get to his seat before letting the rest of the passengers board and the staff assisting him were very upset as were the passengers who were wondering what was taking so long to get to their seats."

Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. My 8th international flight in business class with 3 different airlines and Fiji Airways crew beat them hands down. Loved the Fiji Chicken curry."
Cons: "Angled seats Limited choice on IFE"

Pros: "IT was a quick flight."
Cons: "People always used my the way at my comfort seat to shortn there way...so it wasnt really comfortable. The Crew seemed really stressed."

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: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."
Cons: "Seats are narrow for some people. It can be uncomfortable if the person in front reclines their seat, since the rows are close together."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "That the plane actually landed and picked us up. And it safely landed in Honolulu. Those were the only two positives."
Cons: "They left a guy behind on the island, they were delayed 5 days. They didn't seem to care they left us on the island for an extra 5 days. Fiji airways didn't try to get us off the island any sooner. Fiji airways had next to no communication about the situation. They used multiple different excuses for the delays. I'm never flying Fiji airways again."

Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."

Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."

Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."

Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"

Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"

Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."

Pros: "M"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"

Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Perfect!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."

Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"

Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."

Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."

Pros: "Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good."
Cons: "My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day."

Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."

Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"

Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"

Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"

Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."

Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"

Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."

Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."

Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."

Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."

Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."

Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."

Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"

Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."

Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."

Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."

Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."

Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"

Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."

Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."

Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."

Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."

Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on flight. No movies on flight. Plane was older. Seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."

Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
