Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The Entertainment screen could have been larger."
Pros: "Lots of Leg room"
Pros: "Sky Time drink was interesting. Flight was on time."
Cons: "More leg room. Better information on what is included as far as meals / drinks."
Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."
Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), and entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large). I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing. Respect for people at a level I haven’t seen on domestic US airlines. Seat configuration of 2-4-2 in economy was great. Food and entertainment was really good. Flight arrived on time with no issues."
Cons: "That the level of service on other airlines isn’t at this level. Don’t go to AA looking for a good example."
Pros: "JAL is great!"
Cons: "Cold food"
Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese meals"
Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable enough"
Cons: "4 stars for food and entertainment as it was only an hour flight."
Pros: "Super cheap roundtrip flight. Reliable airline. Flight even came with a meal both ways. Kind staff. Good service."
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Pros: "The meals. The attention to service details. The seats are better."
Cons: "Ticket reservation follow up."
Pros: "The crew will treat you with respect even if you fly with economy class like myself Superb food Great movie selections Cheap wi-fi"
Cons: "I cannot find one thing I did not like"
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."
Pros: "Nice flight, right on time."
Pros: "Great meal compared to other local airlines. Comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent flight and wonderful service!"
Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Pros: "Superior service in a great and spacious plane."
Cons: "Seats are a bit flat and shallow, besides that it was awesome!"
Pros: "Great service. Great in flight entertainment. Served a meal. Had USB charge port. Spacious even though I was in the last row."
Cons: "Wish they offered a vegetarian meal, however the food was great and I still was satisfied with the parts I could eat."
Pros: "Great service, attitude, hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever. Thought I was a king or prince. And that's how they make you feel. If I can, I only fly JAL and especially the flight JL9"
Cons: "The fact there are many airlines which can't even get close to what JAL can offer and even if they try, employees won't be able to match it because of the cultural differences. Makes me sad that other airlines (I won't name them) can still be in business... they need to fly JL9 once and hope they understand."
Pros: "everything was perfect!!"
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Pros: "It was anything very good, my trips on air are great. all flight attendant did good job.i got good slept well on flight JL 060.so I will choice Japan Airline next time. Thank you very much"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. No wifi. Need to upgrade the plane. No seats for economy plus or business class available. Will never fly with Japan airlines again!"
Pros: "Everything! JAL employees go above and beyond to deliver perfect customer service with a genuine smile."
Cons: "Nothing! No complaints here"
Pros: "Food served was actually pretty good."
Cons: "Movie selection, should've had more recent releases instead of flicks from the 90's. Makes for a long flight."
Pros: "I really loved JAL customer service at checking counter. So friendly and great customer service I received."
Pros: "All was fine"
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: "My flight was on time everything went perfectly and there was nothing I could've done better everything is great."
Cons: "i'm kind of tall so I would've liked to of gotten to see with more space especially since there are more seats on the plane available. But other than that my flight was good and I was happy that everything went according to plan."
Pros: "Service from cabin attendants was excellent, specially the crew announcing up coming turbulence, foods, landing. Price is good as well."
Cons: "No big deal, I don't care some of the food, smells fishy. Like I said no big deal, still using Japan Airlines."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "The seat have enough legs room,I'm 181cm usually feel uncomfortable when I take airplane to somewhere, however Japan Airline offer really good service and comfortable seat."
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."
Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "Service and polite staff."
Cons: "Not much space between the seats for my long legs."
Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Five star service on board. Very helpful and informative customer service at jal transfer counter."
Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."
Cons: "I wish they had a larger movie selection, but they had most "New Releases"."
Pros: "Most courteous check in. Boarding was a breeze. Great in flight service and lunch. I always look forward to a flight on JAL."
Pros: "everything is much better, everything! including how boarding and de-planing is more orderly than most other flights."
Pros: "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."
Cons: "Can't say that I have ANY complaints at all!!"
