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

Pros: "I wish all long haul flights were like this. Very clean and well maintained cabin space, good quality food, very attentive, helpful and polite cabin crew. Never thought I’d be able to say this, but the 14 hour flight with two young children in economy was a really enjoyable experience with JAL!"

Pros: "Space between the seats."
Cons: "Color of the seats."

Pros: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"

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: "Best customer service"

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."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing, caring and helpful."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"

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

Pros: "I am looking forwards to using them again! I paid more using this airline than their competitors. But after completing my trip I will have to say it was well worth it and will using them again."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment on board."

Cons: "Airplan so old and ac not work super hot."

Pros: "The flight from Jakart to Japan, Japan to Chicago, was not a problem. Although thr food was typical plane food."
Cons: "My brother and his wife had to wait 12 hrs for plane delay,just to hear that AA canceled all flight for that date. The crew told my brother and his wife to wait for another12 hours which is the next morning, for next flight. My brother decided to just take a rental car to KZO, and was going to just take their luggage from the airline, but the AA crew would not let them did so, and was really rude. It was very traumatic experience for the both of them and other passangers of how bad they treated this plane delay/cancellation issue. One passenger with baby was having a panic attack, but nothing was done. So far, no compensation, or apology email has been sent. Will never take this airline anymore. We are done."

Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."

Pros: "Everything about the Japan air portion of our trip was excellent."
Cons: "No problems whatsoever."

Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."

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: "Went premium economy for such a long flight- NYC to Tokyo- to Sydney. Seats were great as was crew and everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Nice"
Cons: "Nth"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Great take off, great landing the stewardess were doing excellent jobs to accommodate us. Will fly with JAL again in the future."

Cons: "Very long lines at the security gate at Itami. Difficult web check in."

Cons: "Food so-so boxed ramen very poor bottom of the seat after 5-6 hours very hard and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."

Pros: "Japan Airlines is very good. They have good service, safety, and customer care."
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight."

Pros: "The aircraft was clean and boarding went smoothly. The flight was late but the staff seemed courteous, polite, and apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal when I booked the flight roughly 1.5 months prior to my trip. However, when the meal was being served, there was only a chicken or pork option and my vegetarian meal had either not been properly booked or had been forgotten. When I informed the staff, I was asked to show proof that I ordered a veggie meal. I could not pull up my email confirmation as we were flying and there was no internet access. I had to lug my bag out of the overhead and search for a print out confirmation. I had not come prepared with the "evidence" the stewardess wanted. While the staff tried to be polite, I also found them to be quite rude, demanding that I produce evidence. Could they not have simply given me an extra salad without all the fuss? I felt I was being treated as a criminal for requesting a veggie meal that had, unfortunately, not been recorded in their system."

Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Crew helpful and willing to please."
Cons: "The food and overall service amenities are lacking in JAL. My flight was 8 hours and only one meal was served and one snack. The meals themselves are nothing special or enjoyable."

Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"

Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"

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

Pros: "Great flights! Absolutely no complaints! And they have free alcohol with your meals! I didn't know that still existed in air travel these days but Kudos!"
Cons: "Nothing, keep up the good work!"

Pros: "Food is bland, boring. Entertainment contents are limited and old movies"
Cons: "As mentioned above, more new selections of movies. Better taste and quality of food, please."

Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"

Pros: "There was lots of leg room. Crew was nice."
Cons: "One of our seats had a broken recliner button."

Pros: "Crew were super attentive. Friendly and helpful. Food was decent. Nice change from standard fare."
Cons: "This seemed an older plane so the size of the economy class seating harkened back to the days when your legs were numb halfway through the flight."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"

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."

Cons: "Boarding is done by a bus trip onto the tarmac, then you take the rolling stairs up into the plane. No in flight entertainment of any sort."

Pros: "Service Quality"
Cons: "Seat does not recline"

Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."

Pros: "I like the way the flight attendants treat the passengers. They are very courteous, friendly and wearing very sweet smiles.The airplane is very prompt when it comes to arrival and departure schedule. Thank you very much for providing me a wheelchair which made my travel more convenient."
Cons: "So far there was nothing that I didn't like. The food was good and the airplane was clean."

Pros: "Everything was as I paid for. All the planes left on time. No issues."
Cons: "What can you expect in economy?"

Pros: "Service and the fact that flight was not full provided for a better experience. Staff was super friendly and attentive. The films were new and tv was big! Food was ok."

Pros: "Plane not full so had 2 seats to myself. Stewardesses nice but didn’t all speak English."
Cons: "Only got asked for a drink one time. I could have used a snack,but I was trying to sleep so maybe they just didn’t disturb me. Left bright lights on whole trip. No Wi-Fi on this flight available."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating ... refreshing change."
Cons: "Hoping for different movies on the long flight back...and less R rated ones...some different games (like trivia) would have been nice."

Pros: "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."

Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew did not accept tip. Food could be better."

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."

Pros: "The most impressive is consistenty great service from check in, in the air and online costumer service.. they are very pleasant , humble and genuine, always trying giving what you need."

Cons: "I'm still stuck in LAX"

Pros: "The flight was extremely comfortable. Entertainment was 10 on a scale of 1 to 10."
Cons: "Only one entrance into the plane. I was in the last row. Had to walk the length of the plane. Having a second entrance could rapidly reduce boarding time."

Pros: "Overall experience was excellent. Seating as spacious in economy as I have had in some airlines' premium economy. Food was fresh and quite tasty although nothing to rave about. The staff are always a delight on ANA."
Cons: "The Hollywood entertainment options were limited and not very interesting."

Cons: "The food. Though it's Halal but very poor quality you should have to improve it."

Cons: "Flight was moved to6 am, 4 hours earlier than scheduled. Found out less than 24 hours before flight. ANA refused to rebook on an available flight leaving at the original time. Disappointed (and tired)."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."

Pros: "Always happy to fly ANA but wish I cold fly direct from Vancouver to Okinawa. and return. Kansai? I fly there three time a year."

Pros: "EVERYTHING!"

Pros: "I fly around often, at least 10 times a year, and ANA has always had the best service, cleanest planes, and the best entertainment. I recommend flying with ANA anytime you travel."

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

Pros: "I like the whole experience overall I would definitely Fly ANA again"
Cons: "I like the whole experience overall"

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and the food was amazing. Entertainment was also very good daughter loved it"

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is the best first class airline in the world hands down"
Cons: "Nothing they do a great job!!!"

Cons: "Seats were so close together that when the person in front of me leaned back, my personal screen was inches from my face. Then when it was time to get the seats back up - none moved - they all had to be pulled up by many people."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Food and seat comfort could be better"

Cons: "All was well, thanks"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service was excellent & food satisfying."
Cons: "The liquor variety could be better."

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

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

Pros: "Hotel to freshen up was great idea"
Cons: "Visa took forever. Ended having only 2 hours at the hotel"

Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

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

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

Cons: "Passengers in front of you slamming their seats back that crushed and spilled my food all over me. Happened 3 times!!!"

Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

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

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "Great Cabin Crew, the pilot was extremely talented and landed very well at a low speed so as to not wake everyone in Nagpur up."
Cons: "seats are a bit tight"

Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"

Pros: "Excellent travel with Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Only thing is security was too tight at Doha Airport"

Pros: "Food for kids wasn't great my kids did not eat while traveling more food choices like fruits and cereal and milk and stuff would have been much better please take a look at kids nutrition chart and popular food for kids I think need attention I have a lot food service mangament experience and own one now thanks"
Cons: "N/a"

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

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

Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"

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

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

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

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"

Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."

Cons: "not friendly staff delayed and no help. cost me so much did not get anything"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Good though. But not too comfortable with indiscriminate change of seats. Was held up in Doha because my seat was changed."

Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."

Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."

Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."

Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."

Pros: "Attentive service"
Cons: "The waiting room in Qatar airport was freezing! So many cold people who were not properly attired as you don't expect arctic conditions at 1am!"

Pros: "Very good entertainment selections, friendly and helpful crew, good flight time, large brand new aircraft."
Cons: "Seats too firm"

Pros: "Good quantity and variety of shows on in-flight entertainment system which is important on 12+ hour flights."
Cons: "Food quality has gone down. Most flight attendants we encountered had poor attitudes - felt like they were doing us a favor when serving us."

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Crew amazing, seat not too comfy"
Cons: "Sits uncomfortable"

Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"

Cons: "They sent my luggage to a completely different state! Now I have to wait till it gets to LGA and then they’ll send it to me."

Cons: "Having food & being on time would’ve been nice?"

Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."

LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
