Overall, very good trip. I would definitely fly with Japan Airlines again. Food choices are Japanese-centric, flying back to Los Angeles after being in Asia two weeks, something different would have been nice. But overall, very good.
Pros: "Crew took great care of us"
Cons: "The cabin was so hot it felt like there was no air conditioning. Please turn up the air conditioning (make it colder). Passengers feeling cold can use a blanket to stay warm. Passengers feeling warm have no solution. I was wearing just a T-shirt and was feeling so warm. Thank you"
Pros: "Nothing to complaint. Excellent airline nowadays"
Pros: "The crew and food was amazing, with ample entertainment selections."
Cons: "Seats. For some unknown reason, JAL uses different seats on this 787-8 flight from NRT-SAN that's 2-3 inches less in pitch than all of their other planes. This was not comfortable on a 9-hour+ flight. The flight attendants also woke us up everytime food was served so we could recline up seats."
Pros: "The crew members polite and nice."
Cons: "To time the food service more evenly. Left side passengers were served a meal and finished before the right side was served food."
Pros: "The food the service and the staff"
Pros: "Kind and courteous staff"
Cons: "A family with 2 kids making noisy and crying nonstop during the flight the father was playing Japanese video games with headphones on and very careless but once in a wile started yelling at Kiks because they distracted him from his entertainment. Grandma next to them was careless too,mother left the kids to father and was sitting 2 rows in the back and they never came at least to try to make them quiet even when the kids started to kik everywhere licluding the food tray and almost breaks it. Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."
Pros: "Friendly, clean. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to reserve a seat - apparently they don't allow Kayak customers to reserve seats now. I was forced into a middle seat and was uncomfortable and dehydrated the majority of the trip. Nice girl at baggage check said she'd ask a manager to move me, and to let them know at the gate, but the people at the gate said no. I felt discriminated against because I didn't book through them and/or I'm not Japanese. They historically love to put mushrooms in their food, like a fetish. This left me with one choice for the entree - some version of oyakodon - eggs and chicken. In my box there were two enormous chunks of fat/skin and another unidentifiable part of the chicken, and about the amount of edible chicken as 1 1/2 nuggets from Chick-Fil-A. There was more lotus root than chicken, so basically I had a box of rice and scrambled eggs with garnish. For the second meal, it was the Yoshinoya gyudon - a small serving of thinly sliced beef with rice. If I bought this fresh at a Yoshinoya restaurant, it would cost about $3. It's the rough equivalent of serving you a McDouble - cheap and filling and a coin toss if you get stomach pains. I lost that coin toss. Unless there is a big fare difference or I find out that their reserved seat policies are changed, I will choose ANA or another carrier. I used to enjoy JAL, but I cannot abide by idiotic decisions that seemed designed to punish people for using 3rd-party booking sites or who are not Japanese."
Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Flight was long. Didn’t get my seat preference"
Pros: "Crew very polite, friendly and respectful."
Cons: "Flightsame as"
Pros: "Clean plane, very nice crew."
Cons: "Flying coach is always cramped for a tall person!"
Cons: "How about being stranded at Narita Airport due to bad weather AND not helping your passengers rebook. Told us the flight was cancelled at 10:30pm when suppose to fly out at 7:30pm. No trains or hotels available, only way to rebook was through their phone service? Which didn’t open until 8am. Why not rebook at the ticket desk, guess what? You can’t!"

Cons: "I did not like that we could not book our seats until 72h before departure."

Pros: "Friendly and respectful staff, great meals, tasty!"
Pros: "Staff- the ladies in flight were very friendly and courteous."
Pros: "The personnel from JAL was excellent as was the flight, food, boarding and comfort."
Cons: "We were informed our flight was not to land in Haneda but at Narita. We specifically picked that flight pattern because of the ease of traveling from Hawaii to Haneda to Naha. We wouldn't have to drag two large suitcases and a rollaboard after checking out of customs and immigration very far. Same airport to land and depart. Well the arrival airport was changed to Narita $32.00 per person for Airport Limobus to Haneda. We get off at Haneda and are informed we cannot stay there and wait at the domestic airport for our 6:25 am flight to Naha. We had to load all 6 pieces of luggage on the shuttle bus and transfer to the international terminal because they close the domestic terminal at midnight. There was no hotel accommodations at the domestic airport as the hotel was booked two months in advance!!! We had to wait at the international airport terminal till 4:30 am when we then transferred back to the domestic terminal with our 6 pieces of luggage. Tell me how happy you'd be!!!"
Pros: "Enjoyed the greeting, politeness and food"
Cons: "More English speaking would be preferred"
Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"
Cons: "on a 12 hour flight they served meals only twice, at the beginning and at the end.. i was really starving in-between for somethign heavier (though u can ask for those biscuits etc).."

Cons: "Selection of video entertainment could be increased and improved."
Pros: "that it was actually flown by JAL not china southern"
Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."

Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"
Pros: "Very attentive service, very comfortable seats on economy, good food, excellent attention to detail"
Pros: "JAL is curteous and professional. They had a flight attendant dedicated to helping me and my infant daughter and provided bassinet and assitant with luggage during the flight. Totally different experience from American carriers like United who treat you like cattle. I hope I can fly with JAL again soon. They are incredible. I was super satisfied."
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: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "evening flight. not too crowded"
Cons: "delayed by 1 hour meal was so-so"
Pros: "The people, let's be honest, the Japanese just have a genuine humble way about them, where they actually derive pleasure from providing quality service. In short, they are better human beings, and having a flight with them taking care of me, is a sort of heaven"
Cons: "Food quality."
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!!"
Pros: "The most polite staff that I have ever met. Very accommodating and concerned about our ride over the pacific ocean. I am a vegetarian and forgot to fill order my meal online. The staff was amazing in handling this, offering me everything else they had that wasn't meat. The economy seats were the most comfortable i can remember for an over night flight."
Cons: "The only critique that I would have is on the first flight, they took a while to get our dinner trays, but the second flight was prompt. This just be due to my seat being all the way up front."
Pros: "The airplane was quite and clean and the crew were helpful"
Cons: "Some items were not new and not in a good shape like the headphones and the pillows. The crew didn't pickup the plates after we finished our meal"
Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."
Pros: "full service"
Cons: "long flight"
Cons: "Unfortunately there were many babies crying and poking around the entire time, but that can’t be helped. Everything airlines related was great though."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Emirates should consider stop selling the seat that is just located next to the laboratory. It’s simoly too close to the facility and I could not get good rest at all not to mention about the strange smell."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive and polite at all times!"
Cons: "The screens should be replaced with new High quality ones."
Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."
Pros: "comfortable seats and entertainment system"
Cons: "the food wasn't so good and I expected more from an Emirates flight"
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "The entertainment system is good"
Cons: "The crew was poor. Didn’t appreciate when requested toilet paper in the toilet, as there was none. Ask for a snack as no food until 5hrs into the flight, crew were impolite and rude. The crew gathered in the gallery and chat among themselves. Very annoyed if you interrupted them, asking for a water."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Peanuts !! Ban them please"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing negative."
Pros: "Besides noted above the arrival on time."
Cons: "Peanuts should be replaced with snack crackers as so many people can not eat or come in to contact with peanuts, it’s a health hazard and not healthy. Entertainment on board should have background music"
Cons: "Newark airport is depressing. Lighting in boarding area is simply awful. Also, cab fare to and from NYC is much too high. Midnight departure time of the flight to Greece is inconvenient. It is just too late. Getting through customs at Newark is a chore. There are not enough computers for passengers to report what they have to report. Also, many passengers I saw did not know how to use a computer."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."
Pros: "I loved the crew. Very helpful. Katarina was very helpfull"
Cons: "I sat next to the bathrooms"

Pros: "The food, drinks and entertainment we’re excellent. I also watched the staff caring for another passenger who was frequently summoning them for small requests but the staff was always patient and cheerful with him."
Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."
Cons: "The bus ride took over 10 mins. Why are flights to South Asia and other developing countries not given boarding via the bridge? Horribly long bus ride at DXB for flight to DEL."
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "We were sitting in row 36 (D,E,F,G). Everything was fine until we realized there was a leak in the plane. On take off and landing the A/C leaked all over our clothes and seats. When we reacted and stood up, the flight attendant screamed at us and told us to sit down. Afterwards, the flight attendant asked us what was wrong and she had realized that the AC had leaked on us. All she did was put towels on our seat and walked away. For at least 10 minutes I had to raise a towel to catch the water from dripping onto our heads during lift off and landing."
Pros: "I liked the complimentary alcohol, but you had to get up and ask for additional beer /wine/etc...."
Cons: "They need to be better at cleaning up... I had to clear trash from others frequently"

Pros: "Everything was on point."
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "Too much costly for a Tuesday flight. But rest all good"
Pros: "One of the best airlines I have flown. Very good with kids and they do a hell of a good job of cleaning restrooms. Food quality was great."
Cons: "Hindu meal has meat in it which was a surprise. It was too cold inside plane and they would take blankets before landing and won't give you blankets till take off is complete. They should give water bottles."
Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent entertainment"
Pros: "-Airbus A380 from dubai to SFO and backforth was very pleasant and almost zero noise in cabin. However flight design is little awkward that it squeezed me, wife and our baby in bassinet seat. - We had opted for Asian veg food and was very tasty and was served hot all the time. - Many restrooms - Travel accessories - Great entertainment options."
Cons: "- Cabin crew were bit rude and didn't care much even though we had baby when flying from SFO to Dubai. - Restrooms are oddly placed inside flight. - Can improve on food menu and varieties and also wish there were more snacks to munch. - Boarding process need to much more organized."
Pros: "Boarding procedure kept changing from flight to flight,keeping one guessing....Food(Asian Vegetarian was so so...served at random...."
Cons: "Luggage came on time."
Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive. didnt respond properly"
Pros: "The flight was clean and well maintained"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1hr 30 so missed next flight and i had to buy a new ticket"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Due to an accident the flight was redirected which I understand but when we landed in Bahrain it took four hour for Emirates to organize a hotel then we did not fly out until 15 hours latter on top of that there was no communication or assistance with connecting flights. I missed my connection and was charged another me to fly the following day. This could have been avoided with better communication."
Pros: "comfortable and new airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude with a very bad attitude and not friendly."
Pros: "The crew could not tell if the meal. Is nut free. Management should make sure crew know ingredients of meals. Or caterers should specify to aireline and crew members of meals contents."
Pros: "Organized boarding n good in flt service"
Pros: "I was traveling back to the US after being sick with a pregnancy related condition in Uganda. The flight from Dubai to Dallas was the longest leg of my trip. I got sick during the flight and was so impressed by how the flight attendants handled the situation. They kept checking on me during the flight, asking if I needed anything, encouraging me, and taking care of me. I really appreciated the help!"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was great!"
Cons: "The seats could have been wider, as they were a bit tight. Would have liked more leg room. My son got sick during the landing. I pushed the assistance button several time during and after landing and none of the crew ever responded, the just ignored it. That was rather disappointing..."
Pros: "The various American airlines have SO far to go to compare with Emirates (and other non-US airlines). One gets treated coldly and with irritation or disdain on American carriers commonly, while Emirates service staff are all professional, confident, pleasant and always have time to help you, handle small requests, or provide you that little extra. They understand service, and provide it as between equal professionals. Service staff in the US seem to think actually providing good service is demeaning, so they waste everyone's time and happiness making sure you know that you're no better than them. It's pathetic and immature. Emirates utterly rocks. And the price was better than all the US airlines. What's not to like?"
Pros: "Plenty of food provided, and crew is very friendly."
Cons: "When boarding at Brisbane Airport to fly back to Singapore, ground staff at the counter called out the boarding passes allocated from back rows to middle rows to start boarding; thereafter the remaining rows were never called out, so passengers like us holding front to middle row seats and following the rules naturally were left behind, at a disadvantage. In the end when not many passengers were left in the Queue, then we joined Q at the back to board."
Pros: "Also spacious even though the plane was smaller than the NY to Dubai plane."
Cons: "The flight wasn't as nice as the flight from NY to Dubai. I guess it's because the plane was older."
Pros: "Live entertainment experience - thanks to that I didn't miss my favorite Saturday game Delicious food and flight entertainment was expectedly awesome also love the timing on food serving which perfectly matched my sleep schedule."
Cons: "It's first time in my life that I travel 7 hrs and during these hours we heard the noisy sounds of the children crying . There shouldo be a way to stop this. As long trips must not be this noisy ... there must be a solution from the crew... and we didn't see any try from them.."
Pros: "Boarding was alright nothing special"
Cons: "I didn't like the crew, the main fact was that they forgot about me, they offers everyone else drinks (skipped me) they handed out everyone food (skipped me). I asked a passing crew member for just some water and I got incredible attitude and the guy totally didn't come back with anything, after everyone got their food and the crew disappeared I rang for them and it took them to the point of grabbing everyone's left overs to come by and see what I was asking for, and when I informed them they skipped me and I didn't get anything not even a drink, they said they didn't skip me and they passed out all the food to each person. At that point it was obvious to prove them wrong with everyone around me done eating and I didn't even have a cup or plate. Then they said I didn't want food when they came by............ -_- I'm not an idiot and I wasn't asleep the entire flight which they asked and after a bit of pointless argument they finally gave me some food. It was absolutely the worst experience I have ever had with customer service in my life and emerits is the front page of it."
Pros: "I was given the exit row which was great."
Cons: "The stewards were very nice but I had to ask twice for a blanket and after an hour I finally got up and asked for a third time. Apart from that it was good. I slept through a meal and then wasn't able to get any food which was a little annoying."
Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."

Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."
Cons: "Smooth flight left on time and arrived on time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the entertainment choices were pretty good."
Cons: "By the time the food service cart reached us in row 28 of about 33 or so, my choices for food and drink were both sold out. It would have been less of a big deal if our earlier flight hadn't been so late that we couldn't grab something to eat before boarding."
Pros: "Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice."
Cons: "My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Food was passable. Confort was just OK for a 9h flight."

Pros: "The boarding was great. The food and comfort was consistent with the average."
Cons: "The crew (some, not all) could have been friendlier and more accommodating. Entertainment is better with TV’s at each seat for variety."
