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.

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.

Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."

Cons: "Food, especially before landing"
Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."
Pros: "Everything bad"
Cons: "Bad customer service, I don't speak English good , can't understand them jet blue"
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: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "There were so many people who walk around an aisle but the flight attendant didn't control them. They kept pushing my seat and hit. I was so uncomfortable."
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: "I enjoyed their food very much, and the bathrooms are so clean! It made my trip easy. You will never regret using JAL."
Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."
Pros: "On the flight home they upgraded me to business class while apologizing my original economy seat was not available. Amazing. I had a rather unsettled stomach so when the food service came I wasn't hungry. I told the flight attendant, and she brought me some very bland easy to eat food without me even asking. She then checked on me constantly to see how I was feeling, and suggested sparkling water. When I deplaned, she checked one more time with me, if they could do anything. I was feeling much better, and give this airline my highest endorsement."
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 crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."

The flight experience met my expectation of Korean Air. Keep up the good work.

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "Was able to get rest"
Pros: "All crew was super polite, friendly and professional, the food was amazing, and seat was comfy."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor, bad movies selection, small selection of movies, old movies."
Pros: "That the bathrooms are kept clean."
Cons: "Lack of beverage service. For an 11.5 hour flight they could have come around more often to offer pop or alcoholic beverages."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Pros: "From boarding to meal to disembarking, Korean Air does it right. They are attentive to your needs and provide excellent customer service."
Cons: "On this particular flight, a nice glass of white wine would have been nice but they had beer instead. I survived. Additionally, an upgrade on their earphones would be nice. Their sound quality is not the best."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Dont have lots of option on movie"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "The Koreans are masters at whatever they do, super clean, polite and attentive. Always a smile. I'd fly with them anytime."
Cons: "They tend to keep the plane a tad warm and no individual "fresh air" control over head."
Cons: "Little leg room on shorter flights/smaller aircrafts."
Pros: "First Korean dish was good."
Cons: "The pasta was the worst meal ever."
Pros: "Got the seats we wanted. If you are travelling with an infant this is top priority and they delivered"
Cons: "Flight delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Always slippers and good seats. Lunch was good. Entertainment was just ok but good classical music selection."
Cons: "The food used to be something I looked forward to, but this time the beef and rice for dinner (because chicken was already gone) was so salty and awful I had to ask to change for fish, which was flavorless. 30 minute delay on unloading luggage made the end of a long flight rough."
Pros: "Nothing at all. It was hell and you should be ashamec ofhiw you treated me."
Cons: "Everything. You have THE worst customer servive evet."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Business would be better"
Pros: "The leg room was pretty generous compared to other airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment system worked alright but a bit old-fashioned. The airplane safety video seemed like it was made in the 90s. The food on the return flight was really bad"
Pros: "Good legroom; great choice of movies and screen on back of seat makes it convenient to choose and see movies/music etc"
Pros: "Korea Air is a great airline. Jin Air (for the return part) was OK. The flight attendants of BOTH airlines are GREAT, but the seats in Jin Air are cramped."
Cons: "Korea Air is a great airline. Jin Air (for the return part) was OK. The flight attendants of BOTH airlines are GREAT, but the seats in Jin Air are cramped."
Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Boarded on time and quickly. Smooth ride made me fall asleep for most of the flight almost the second I sat down (I had been out the night before so that probably also explains it). They left a note saying I was sleeping when they gave out meals and offered it to me even though we were about to descend. I didn't eat the food, nor did I use the in-flight entertainment, so I can't attest to the quality in those regards."
Cons: "Seats a little uncomfortable but this time around I got a window seat as well as two empty seats behind me so I was able to stretch out a bit more and be liberal with my space."
Pros: "Cool; collected; patient; helpful; calm; respectful; overall, people doing their best for their customers."
Pros: "Crews are kind and nice. No complain about the service the crews provided."
Cons: "The chair, need to be more comfortable"
Cons: "I'm not happy about the condition of my luggage. When I received my luggage, the latch to close my suitcase was badly damaged. Half of one of the latches was broken off! My suitcase was not locked in the first place so there was no reason for anyone to be so forceful with it."
Pros: "I really like the plane. It was my first time on an A380 and despite its size and volume of passengers, everything went well. Staff was excellent and helpful and the entertainment selections really good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Korean Airlines service is awesome. The flight attendants are attentive, sharp and customer service oriented."
Pros: "I like the City airport service in Seoul, you can drop off your luggage early so you can enjoy the city more."
Cons: "They are not quite ready for their electronic boarding pass and apple watch features. Although they have an App, it only goes far as checking in 48 hours early. The food is not good."
Pros: "Timely and professional services,well polite and corteous staff"
Pros: "By far the best airline i have ever travelled on"
Cons: "The service, quality of airport and new aircraft"
Pros: "Flight comfortable, service superb, clean and smooth flight. They went all out to make everyone feel as comfortable as they could."
Cons: "Scrambled eggs were overlooked. Breakfast lacked variety. Otherwise, it was all good."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and quick boarding process"
Cons: "Seat is a bit narrow,"
Pros: "I liked their positive & happy attitudes as well as their work ethic."
Cons: "Perhaps there could have been a larger & wider selection of movies. I would have liked to have had a hard copy menu so that I could make a more informed choice with my meals."
Pros: "Korean employees at LAX are no helpful!!!"
Pros: "International flight should be Two luggage check in, all other flights I used they are two luggage to be check in, and one carry on, but not this Korean Air, for sure I wouldn't be using again.,"
Pros: "Excellent service and comfort, from start to finish"
Pros: "Ground staff very friendly as in flight staff. Boarding orderly and seats comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not very tasty"
Pros: "The food, available movies, and crew were all very good. The crew did a wonderful job."
Cons: "The flight was late for take off and I was disappointed that there was only one Japanese movie available for the flight."
Cons: "special meals especially Hindu meals non vegetarian"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient and the crew was nice, polite, and mostly spoke English, which is a huge benefit. The crew provided a pillow+blanket combination, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, several snacks, and lots of drinks including wine. As for entertainment, the flight includes several movies, tv shows, music, and games for free. I would definitely recommend Korean Air to a friend, but I would recommend that friend to bring a custom neck pillow."
Cons: "Although the crew dimmed the lights during the flight, I could never get comfortable enough in my chair to sleep. The chairs do not support the human body, they only offer rollercoaster type padding. There is no neck support, and the pillow handed out by the crew is too big to be used as a back or neck support. Even lying back, the chairs are uncomfortable. The food could have had some warning labels in English on them. Since I'm lactose intolerant and unable to read Hangul, it's difficult for me to pick food I can eat without problems."
Pros: "Service counter check in was very helpful"
Pros: "Great food selection;just the right amount."
Cons: "Improve sound system;selection of movies & music selections"
Pros: "Plane was spacious, clean and flight attendants were very nice and professional. Food and entertainment was excellent!"
Pros: "the food, the snacks, the special amenities for pregnant passenger, the transit airport"
Cons: "more entertainment channel options pleaseeee, it was kinda bouncy during the landing im not sure if it was because of the wind but its summer time.."
Pros: "Beverage service satisfactory."
Cons: "The fact that this JAL Flight was operated by Korean Air meant that not only was the staff different, the the plane itself was an older and smaller model with extremely little room and zero entertainment systems. Both of these developments were severely disappointing given that the 2 hour round trip was 440USD, and flying on a budget airline would have provided basically the same experience for much cheaper. Furthermore the flight was delayed for over an hour taking off at almost 10:00pm instead of 8:40pm. The meal service was quite disappointing as well given the long wait. This delay nearly caused me to miss the last train into the city, in which case I would have needed to take an incredibly expensive Tokyo taxi ride to my accommodation. This was avoided by luck alone, as the airport immigration lines at Haneda airport were uncharacteristically empty. All in all, it was a surprisingly frustrating experience and remarkably stressful. I have known JAL and Korean Air to both be excellent carriers and was quite disappointed to have such a poor flight experience could have been exceeded by an average Peach or Vanilla Air flight."
Pros: "The flight staff is always a pleasure to fly with."
Pros: "O"
Cons: "Overall flight was good except the long 12 hours stop in Korea was killing us. Maybe it's ok if just one on the way not back and forth of the flight."
Cons: "Again, my special meal request wasn't found and I ended up eating nothing"
Pros: "Flight attendants were on point! Great service with other luxuries such as a USB charge port!"
Cons: "The flight was to short to enjoy."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment selections on the flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The food was really great! And the entertainment was fantastic! I would absolutely fly with them again the next time I book a trip."

Cons: "There isn't a bad comment."
Pros: "Friendly attentive staff."
Cons: "The seat was narrow and after 9 hours, not comfortable... Normal for economy though"
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."
Pros: "Crew tried to be friendly"
Cons: "Slow to depart after boarding on time, with an eventual delay of 1 hour (deplaning was extremely slow) before we reached the baggage claim area. The wait for baggage took another half hour"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Staff and crew and food!"
Cons: "We could not check in online. This was frustrating and we do not know why?"
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: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."

Cons: "Seats in economy are a little uncomfortable, but to be expected."
Pros: "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome. Seats can be a bit cramped but we were in economy and it's a 9 hour flight so some discomfort is expected. The 3 meals served are complimentary and very much appreciated. The entertainment system is an easy to use touch screen with great options from Hollywood and other movie sources."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful airline staff and flight attendants. Efficient boarding. Departed on time. Great in flight service."
Pros: "787 was beautiful, great features, clean. Flight attendants were polite and helpful."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service was amazing."

Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Ana is the best"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary.

Pros: "Everything :)"
Pros: "The movie selection and food served were pleasant surprises."
Cons: "Sore butt after 10 hours , but that's hardly anyone's fault. No complaints about my experience. 10/10"
Pros: "The service was great, complimentary movie selection was fantastic."
Cons: "I requested strict vegetarian meals in advance, was given items that violated this request. Further, the items which were in accordance with my dietary restrictions were generally not satisfying."

Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating and amazing flight crew."

Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "Bigger space for legs room"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."
Cons: "I'm really picky and there's nothing more I could have wanted in an economy flight experience."
Cons: "It’ was awesome"
Pros: "Could be a bit more friendly"

Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "Terrible experience"
Cons: "I was refused permission to board the plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Service was wonderful"
Pros: "Very hardworking and friendly cabin crew and very efficient service onboard. Lots of little finishing touches like free toothbrush/paste, eyecovers, earplugs in washrooms. Larger and better quality LCD screens in their B777-300ER plane."
Cons: "Economy seat space is tight but not different from other major airlines unless you pay extra for more leg space."
Pros: "Nothing to like about."
Pros: "Overall great experience flying with Eva Air. Smooth flight and the food was pretty good compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable ,no delate"
Cons: "We did not like all the meals in all the flights"
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Pros: "Liked the seats, legroom. Good value for price."
Cons: "Food could be better. Crew could be friendlier. They did their job but did not have the warmth of crew of other airlines I’ve flown."
Pros: "Nice staff good movie selection good flight"
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "Crew is so nice."
Pros: "In economy the seats recline more than your average airplane and also there's a bit more leg room so on a long flight this is a big plus. I also liked the fact that the washrooms are kept very clean during the flight and they offer toothbrush with toothpaste."
Cons: "Overall I liked everything is a very good airline. The flight attendants rush you too much for everything, that bothered me a bit."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the food was delicious."
Cons: "Not a very good selection of movies."
Pros: "I had a ile seat,and wasn't crowded"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, attentive crew, good overall experience"
Pros: "The food and drink service was great and at no extra cost"
Pros: "easy helpful checking,boarding and clean plants with meal service. On time helpful stewardess and friendly approach"
Cons: "Meals basic but food and wine free, no entertainment on board"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Eva. Overall a positive experience. Crew and staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "I was a little frustrated when standing in line to check in in Taipei. Only one active agent, a very long line and about six Eva employees chatting in the administrative area."
Pros: "comfy, modern interior on the plane. Staff was great."
Cons: "check in was smooth, and the staff knew exactly how to handle my surfboard bag and the correct price to charge."
Pros: "In flight food was delicious and crew was very friendly"
Pros: "There was nothing good about this experience. Management at the highest levels made decisions that showed gross inattention to the wellbeing of passengers and crews."
Cons: "My wife and I were scheduled to fly out of Taipei on the day a major typhoon made a direct hit on Taiwan. Taipei was shut down, offices and shops were closed, residents were sheltering at home, and other carriers had cancelled essentially all flights during the 10 hours when the storm was projected to be over the island and had posted long delays (of 8 and 10 hours and longer) on their uncancelled flights. Only EVA stubbornly clung to the fiction that our flight and others would actually depart -- and depart on time. EVA's refusal to acknowledge reality -- and timely communicate that reality to its customers -- made planning impossible, stranding passengers at hotels without bookings, preventing contingency planning and forcing many passengers to make needless trips to the airport over treacherous roads made hazardous by heavy flooding, downed trees, blowing debris, high winds and blinding rain. EVA's decisions cost us money, inconvenience, time and anxiety. For the passengers and crews on inbound planes that EVA actually landed or tried to land in Taipei that day, the consequences were worse: head and other injuries from extreme turbulence and hard landings, and then hours on tarmacs unable to deplane because the winds were above the maximum level for the safe deployment of jetways. Getting out the next day with an upgrade to business class doesn't do it for me. I am a United 1K-Star Alliance Gold flyer. I fly a fair amount and I expect, above all else, an uncompromising focus on safety and clear, candid and timely communication. Never again EVA."
Pros: "Large selection of free movies"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and great service."
Pros: "Everything was good . Yhe only problem is the small portions of food."
Cons: "Captain concern about security."
Pros: "Yes & yes"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."
Pros: "Crew is very good and efficient, generally very friendly and helpful. Seats are fairly spacious and comfortable. The flight was only slightly delayed. Food and drinks are quite readily available. Meal quality is nothing amazing, but it's definitely not bad."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No wonder they are one of the best airliner"
Pros: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Happy with everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Friendly, super efficient crew, great, comfy seats and a smooth landing made for a fantastic trip."
Cons: "Could have been longer so I could get more sleep!"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff."
Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."
Pros: "As per usual, Cathay’s service was top notch. Friendly, courteous crew, good food, a great entertainment system with a great selection. This particular flight was very smooth and, as it was only around 65% full, I was able to stretch out and get some sleep."
Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."
Pros: "Crew were outstanding and food was awesome"
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Cons: "Too salty for the meal"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good service. No wait for restroom"
Pros: "Leg room, food, airline staff"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Pros: "Food great, smooth flight. Helpful stewardess. Fairly comfy seats"
Pros: "Excellent all around. The A350 is much quieter than older jets - a real asset on a long flight."
Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were great, entertainment had lots of options"
Cons: "They only had this tasteless shrimp slop leftover by the time they got to me for dinner. I didn't eat it and asked for a snack after and was refused. Other than being hungry it was great. The next meal was fine also."
Pros: "Great airline, punctual, attentive"
Pros: "Super friendly inflight staff, especially on my flight to canada"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seats weren't much comfortable."
Cons: "Food wasn't bad but above average."
Cons: "Ordered a vegetarian meal that was never delivered."
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."
Pros: "Cathy service"
Cons: "Amazing"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Good leg room in coach. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"
Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"
Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"
Pros: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."
Pros: "Access to Cathay lounge. Went to the Wing noodle bar and coffee loft. Had a good bite to eat before boarding flight running 15 mins late. My request to have my meal service delayed was welcomed by staf."
Cons: "None experienced"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Made it easy to sleep even in a middle seat."
Cons: "We had to wait outside the boarding area until right before boarding. Also they did not allow me to reserve a seat when booking."
Pros: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew did not offer beverages or bottled water for coach passengers. The lights were left on for most of the redeye despite it being a 5 hour flight. The plane was old - there was food from the previous flight in my seat when I arrived. The blanks and pillows looked used and worn. Our flight arrived 45 minutes late with no explanation - it seemed to be a result of the slow/delayed boarding process. I will avoid Cathay Pacific going forward."
Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"
Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect."
Cons: "For the price per night i expected the hotel to supply complementary bottle water daily. The A/C was not very effective."
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
Pros: "Great service. Nice plane. Flight attendants were attractive"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
