Highly efficient and great service
Lots of space to spread out (which was not their doing) and big seats with big screens and plenty of legroom.
Super, long line at check-in. Once they opened up the first class window for everybody, things moved somewhat faster. Flight was still delayed by one hour. Flight itself was smooth. Food was good for the first meal and mediocre for the second. JAL flight attendants could speak better English.

Two big hot meals served throughout the flight and plenty of drink service. lots of leg room and could recline comfortably. Flight attendants were wonderful and very helpful. 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."

Pros: "The stewardess of the flight from LA to Osaka was awesome , I don't remember her exactly name , I think she is older then other crew members working that day on economy class . She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter . The stewardess saw that and helping me a hand . I wish every airlines has someone like this crew member . Thank you so much for the awesome service on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."
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: "Staff- the ladies in flight were very friendly and courteous."
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: "This flight was just pretty routine."
Cons: "I wasn't able to make my original flight but that was more the airport's fault so I had to take a later flight and didn't get a choice seat. Tight quarters."
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."
Cons: "Could not enjoy the music and NHK news on the plane."
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."

Pros: "great service and help with everything!!"
Pros: "The service"

I loved both the ground and flight crews. They're so patient and willing to accomodate us and help solve problems. I only wanted to suggest if they can give us more new or not so new movies to watch.
Pros: "Crew service is good!"
Cons: "The seat is really cramp and tight!!"
Pros: "crewe were excellent"
Cons: "nothing !"
Pros: "Again, the crew was extremely polite and accomodating. I’d fly with them again!"

Pros: "ANA's staff were professional and helpful. They will do their very best to accommodate your request within reason, very satisfied how they handled our issue."
Cons: "We made our reservations through kayak / justfly.com and paid an additional fee to reserve our preferred seating assignment. During check in, our seat reservations were not granted because justfly.com did convey our preferences."
Pros: "Their service"
Pros: "I booked with kayak thinking it was an A&A flight and said I got crappy United all the way to Narita Japan where the plane didn't make it on time and I missed my connection for my A&A flight got to love it be careful what you book on their site"

Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."
Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
Pros: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Pros: "more new movies will be better"
Cons: "The seat in this airplane was downright uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent, polite service, very comfortable seats."

Pros: "Crew are nice, helpful and polite"
Cons: "Airport problems turned it into a very long flight. We circled around Fukuoka for and hour. We ended up landing in Nagasaki and used taxi to Fukuoka. Over all time to final destination is 6 hours late."
Pros: "The ANA crew were very sweet and accommodating"
Cons: "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX. Seat selected at time of booking was not honored since selection has to be done on United Air's web site. Did not get the meal I ordered for the same reason. Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."
Pros: "Good good, good service, and good equipment."
Pros: "Flight attendants walk up and down the aisles paying attention to everyone's possible needs. They're looking to be helpful."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "crew not able to understand English they can't speak also all announcements in Japanese crew speaking only in Japanese"
Pros: "Wonderful leg room for the flight, great selection of movies, wonderful staff, food is excellent, bathroom clean and large for airplane. Truly this was a fantastic experience"

Cons: "So far I don't have"
Pros: "Excellent service and flight experience!! Thank you."
Pros: "Very quiet. Plane very clean"
Pros: "Great airline. If I give United 1 *, then ANA gets 4* in my book. The staff and flight attendants are very attentive to your needs, polite, always pleasant. I've been using ANA for my frequent trips between Japan and the states, they are consistent. The in flight food is good. You will get complimentary wine, Haagen Dazs ice cream dessert. Cathay Pacific also serve HD ice cream, but half the size on lunch meal. ANA serve on both meals."
Cons: "i could give ANA a 5*, but I think their web site needs work ! their web navigation is kinda confused, a little bit less intuitive. If you are in the US you need to log on to the ANA US site, the JP site is in Japanese and it will not redirect you to US. On line check in can get confused as a lot of time it would not recognize the booking number, you have to use a long 10 digit e-ticket number. My fight from Tokyo to HKG would let me check in and get seat assignment until 24 hours before the scheduled flight. The seat map shows all seat ps were taken without telling what is going on."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Service was good. 2 full meals including ice cream. Need more choice of movies. Seats were comfy as they could be for Economy class. Pillows & blankets included."
Cons: "Web checkin wasn't very good. We have 3 people in our family & originally booked the tickets at the same time. When it came time to do the web checkin (24 hrs before flight time) the system didn't allow us to check in at the same time & the seat availability was VERY limited. Was nervous that we weren't going to sit together but fortunately everything worked out & we were all together in the same row. We flew Economy class."
Pros: "I can't really think of anything I liked much about that flight other than to say Thank God we landed safely."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. It was a cramped flight. We had problems with the landing gears and had to be pulled off the Tarmac by firefighters. It was quite a frightening experience."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Flight was on time. Meals were good. Will be flying with EVA again"
Pros: "2 passengers seats Food Quick boarding Flight on time"
Cons: "I am a vegetarian. My food was not yummy."
Pros: "Great food. Nice seat. Easy check in. Nice crew"
Cons: "The guy behind me could have blown his nose instead of sniffing the whole flight"
Pros: "Really happy as had a exit seat so lots of leg room"
Pros: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and the food ran out. The entertainment did not work. Plus we were over an hour late once we finally got off the plane"
Cons: "More legroom, but what do I expect in economy?"
Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "Crew was super nice . Food from Chicago to Taipei was not good but from Taipei to Osaka delicious. Not enough room for man like me 6'2" in Boeing 777 better in 787 ."
Cons: "Look above"
Pros: "Great crew and nice comfortable seats"
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: "Seats could be more comfortable. There's no reason for a 16 hour flight to have rows of three or more seats with barely any room to move or stretch out."
Pros: "Crew was rude and seat was very bad. I could not sleep"
Cons: "They could have been more nice and helpful"
Pros: "Bathroom very nice. Food nice."
Cons: "Economy seats a bit too cramped."
Pros: "I like the service for the extra long distance. It was very noticable that go the extra, for you to make it comfortable to ease the long flight anxiety. The entertainment system was good. The food was a notch above typical airline food. I would fly them again definitley."
Pros: "The service from the arrival to the airport to the actual flight was impeccable. The flight attendants kept me hydrated and full to my stomach going and coming from my destination."
Pros: "EVA service from Taipei is a relatively short fly. Service is always great and the food is delicious."
Cons: "Some planes from Taipei to Manila do NOT have TV. I wish they would retrofit all flights with the same accommodations. Other than that, everything is great and I will continue to fly them always"
Pros: "Customer Service was great"
Cons: "Afraid that the airline may need a backup plan in case people miss there connecting flights."
Cons: "Was asked to put away iPads while other passengers kept out their iPhones- told the iPad mini was "too large to keep out" and asked to put in the seat back pocket for safety."
Cons: "Booked/ paid/ and got refused to fly by Evaair as they and Justfly didn’t process the ticket properly even after received money for a month. And they left all the stress to customer had to book another flight at the airport."
Cons: "Lack of movie selections. ear plug location is not convenient, especially when your neighbors want to get out and you have to unplug headphone in order for them to pass through."
Cons: "The food can be better. Not much entertainment"
Pros: "Great friendly and efficient service! Very lovely hostesses"
Pros: "I definitely enjoy flying with Eva."
Pros: "Food not bad"
Pros: "I must say I was skeptical on my first flight with this airline. Staff was very nice. The lady that did my tickets left a very nice note on my plane seat. The ride was very comfortable. The plane and restroom were neat and orderly. I would definitely recommend to my fellow travelers."
Cons: "My fruit platter was all fruit that was not ripe, but no big deal."
Pros: "felt welcomed in the flight."
Cons: "1. Not enough movie selections; same selection on both legs of the trip. 2. Bathrooms were dirty. 3. I was very disappointed that I was forced to check a carryon due to weight limits when it was under the size requirement. The weight limit doesn't make sense if it was going on the same plane anyway for free. 4. It is utterly ridiculous not to give full mileage for economy tickets anymore. Out of all the programs to cut, the loyalty program? Really? 5. Flight attendants were not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "It was a wonderful trip"
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: "flight is on time. you ca pre check. crew is helpful. amenities are there. one of the best long flights i had."
Pros: "Nice facility and good food"
Cons: "Some crew members seemed tired and did everything minimally"
Cons: "I didn't like the food. The worse was that all my luggages were soaked with water. Water was still coming out from the suitcase when we reported about it to the Eva counter in HONG KONG AIRPORT. WE DID NOT KNOW HOW AND WHERE THE WATER CAME TO MY SUITCASE , FOR WE HAD NOT PUT ANY LIQUID IN OUR SUITCASE. BESIDES, THERE WERE OTHER TWO PASSENGER'S RAISED THE SAME PROBLEM to EVA WHILE WE WERE THERE IN THE AIRPORT OF HONG KONG. SHOULD EVA TAKES THE RESPONSIBILITY OF IT?"
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: "Good.service n clean. staffs are helpful.Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "On my flight they are few crying babies could' not relax.Babies take turn to cry."
Cons: "Wasn't able to confirm seats ahead of time. The option to order a vegetarian meal would have been good. Wasn't able to do either of these things through kayak or eva websites and there were no option once on board."
Pros: "Usually high quality service and entertainment. Food also good."
Cons: "We boarded 20-30 minutes late even though the plane was there. Not sure what they were doing. Then we sat on the runway for a solid 30-49 minutes. Apparently, this is standard coming out of Manila."
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!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and no one communicated to me. I got up at 2 am and went To the airport at 3 am and then found out that the flight was cancelled. Had to talk to many people to put me on a different flight. Lot of confusion and chaos"
Pros: "I took EVA flight 55 from Chicago O'Hare to Taipei Taoyuan airport. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "Great employees and great airline."
Cons: "The only problem I ever have is my frequent flier number. They can't match my name so I have not gotten credit for any of my flights and the check in people and ticket counter people could not help me."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. The meals were excellent! Eva Air surpassed my expectations. I will definitely fly Eva Air again"
Cons: "40 minutes late on boarding time"
Pros: "Flight comfortable but would have liked more water throughout flight"

Pros: "One Air Hostess was extraordinary hospitable, shortest time on flight connection."
Cons: "Limited Movies, no amenities"
Pros: "I had the economy XL seat and was quite comfortable"
Cons: "Other than earphone (one ear) not working, all others are good. That was the 2nd pair with the same malfunction, so I suggest changing the earphones."
Cons: "Taipei airport is too cold. Had to stay overnight on a layover. Ruined the experience."
Pros: "food and seat are good."
Cons: "It is just a long flight and the middle economy seats are what they are."
Pros: "Friendly and smiling"
Cons: "No fruits after service for dinner"
Pros: "Everything was good, comparing with other airlines with higher price, China airline was the best"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!"
Cons: "The delay... it’s no one fault but it took up a lot of people’s time. It was frustrating the domino effect of pushing the flight later. I felt terrible for those who only had two weeks and lost two days!"
Pros: "The Crew was Awesome"
Pros: "Yes, and yes"
Cons: "More new movies selection"
Pros: "I liked everything about the Flight, and Crew"
Pros: "Crew was very accomedating and friendly"
Pros: "The ability to select a special meal ahead of time. Meal selection out of the US was better than coming from oversea into the US."

Pros: "Awesome crew on board made the long journey easy. Plenty of leg room and the food was good."
Cons: "To be honest.. everything was perfect for the price and the 12 hours in the air."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "15-20min delay to board"
Pros: "Honestly the turbulence really did not make this an enjoyable ride. I actually could not wait for us to late. It was rather petrifying."
Cons: "The food was not great and again the seldom announcements about turbulence made this a difficult ride."
Cons: "China Airlines website does NOT allow you to choose your seat even thought I purchased my airfare well in advance."
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Cons: "Airplane use to fly from Taipei to Ho Chi Minh old and dirty."
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but fortunately not long layovers. Would probably upgrade my seat from economy next time for some extra leg room."
Pros: "Best long flight I've ever been on. Yummy food, leg room (I'm 5f10in), great entertainment, left on time, fast boarding and fast unboarding."
Pros: "well organized boarding, very attentive crew, decent food and entertainment."
Cons: "nothing major to complain about."
Cons: "Seat not comfortable at all"
Pros: "The staff was nice and very accommodating. The food was good. I was very comfortable the whole time. My ears were fine."
Cons: "I tried a lot of times to check in online but I was never successful."
Cons: "Appreciate blankets and pillows provided as well as complimentary wine"
Cons: "They ran out of food options and i was served meat i could not eat for every meal, thus i ate only rice for over 24 hours. We then sat on the tarmac for over 4 hours with only 1 update,. After an over 18 hour flight. the last that could have been done was to update the passengers so we had an idea of how long we would be sitting there. it is understandable that weather may cause delays, however, it is inexcusable that we were told it would be a 2 hour delay, and were not updated until approaching 3 hours, and additionally, after that, we were told we would be approaching the gate at 10 and were not updated for another hour. The crew should have kept us better informed with the updated delays. They didn't pass out a single snack the entire 4 hour delay, and gave us one cup of water each, terrible experience"
Cons: "I took four flights total to Bali and back ever single flight was delayed in boarding..."
Cons: "Comfort I have long legs... no free beer."
Pros: "it was a pretty quiet flight. a little turbulent but ok. pilots did a good job."
Cons: "the food was not that good. ive had better on the sametrip before."

Pros: "Again, great service. Food was very good, and enough leg room even with person in front pushed back."
Cons: "Older entertainment system and still decent"
Cons: "Food was not that great. I expected more in premium ecconomy"
Pros: "Service of the staff. Not as attentive as I would have liked, but definitely wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment was poor, comfort was horrible (may be my own fault as i'm tall, but i don't recall getting an option to pick a seat prior), and boarding could have been better."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again!"
Pros: "All of the staff were super helpful and friendly. Most were able to communicate in English as well. I would highly recommend requesting ahead of time a VOML (Oriental Vegetarian Meal). Although I was unsure of some of the asian vegetables used, all of the meals had a delicious flavor and always came with a side of fruit, a little desert, and a bun. For those skeptical of airplane food, this was definitely a safe bet!"
Cons: "That they do not show what zone is boarding on the TV monitor near the boarding gate, so you have to listen carefully through several translations. The entertainment system while on flight was a bit out of date (quality of the screen was a bit poor), but they did have several good viewing options. I also found that all of the planes did not have a/c controls that you can automatically adjust."
Pros: "Promptly served food"
Cons: "Very tight connection due to delayed first flight"
Pros: "Great atmosphere on the plane and very clean."
Cons: "I would have liked to have more vegetarian and vegan food options on board the aircraft."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Pros: "Quiet cabin - no crying babies or toddlers"
Cons: "Food was terrible; will choose different airline in future for long haul trips"
Pros: "The staff on this leg of the flight was very nice, however, the next leg they were very rude."
Cons: "It was way too hot on the flight and the smell was very unpleasant. The seats were too close together."
Pros: "I was provided an extra pillow upon request. All the flight attendants were friendly, nice and always have a smile on their faces. The airline counter in Hong Kong offers the special candy from Taiwan."
Cons: "There was no toothbrush/tooth paste provided on the return trip from Taiwan to Los Angeles. They didn't offer and soda from Los Angeles to Taiwan. The return trip was delayed from Hong Kong to Taiwan and Taiwan to Los Angeles. Both delays were only announced at the time of the original boarding time."
Cons: "I booked a ticket 2 months ago and yet didn't get requested aisle seat for this 12 hours flight"
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."
Pros: "The second leg of a trip (Taipei to SFO) was on a newer plane. Staff were courteous and prompt."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed. I was placed on another airline, but heavy weather delayed this by a bit over an hour. Somehow a very tight connection still was met, but my baggage did not make the connection. So far (one day later) they have located one of my bags and said it will be delivered soon. The other is still missing."
Pros: "I loved that my knees didn't touch the seat in front of me. As a tall girl and a 12hr flight that would not have been comfortable at all."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."
Pros: "Service was nice"
Cons: "Late Old 747 Very very poor food"
Pros: "I liked most of the crew. They were courteous and attentive. They were also very helpful in getting passengers situated and seated. I also like that when I had an issue with a crew member a manager and her boss both came to talk to me about what happened and offered apologies. They handled the situation with respect and class."
Cons: "There were two things I didn't like. First was that my on board entertainment set top was not working and I had to change seats. Once in a new seat though I was good and comfortable until a crew member had issues with my placement in an empty row that he wanted to use later in the flight to take a nap. What he did next was not nice, lacked communication and almost ruined the long flight for me. If it wasn't for the rest of the crew being great and his managers apologizing and listening to the full complaint I would probably have decided never to take China airlines again. Will I fly China airlines again? Yes, I will."
Pros: "Seat was great!"
Cons: "Long flight this good to offer drinks and snacks between meals"
Pros: "PAL crew, as expected, was good. we arrived sfo ahead of schedule.."
Cons: "i think desserts can be improved"
Pros: "Crew are helpful"
Cons: "PAL flights always delayed"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite. Cannot complain. The seat in Premium Economy was better than expected. Certainly worth the upgrade."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better. I don't really know what to normally expect. The cloth napkins and metal flatware were certainly appreciated."

Cons: "too crowded"
Pros: "More organized bus boarding according to seating location"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 1hr 13mins"
Cons: "If the food is better and no flight delay"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"

Pros: "Crew, service, comfort, food extra superb,"
Cons: "Add games on your entertainment, as you have movies for all ages, and have music as well like country song or old favourites would be much appreciated.."
Pros: "The experience was only okcustomer"
Cons: "Customer service needs to be improved and also online checkin (date option)."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Stop trying to be cute with boarding procedures. It adds more frustration as it is."
Pros: "food, crew, comfort were Okay. In-flight entertainment could use more improvement -- probably more asian content or travel-related shows."
Cons: "the 6-7 hour delay was handled very poorly -- lack of information; no airline manager so the answer all passengers received were "We are sorry but we aren't in a position to answer that." When asked about possible compensation, the ground crew answered "We'd have to wait until we reach Manila (which was at least 17 hours away)" -- This just made passengers more irritated and the ground crew were forced to call airport security. boarding very unorganized on our return flight."
Pros: "3 meals, drinks, pillow, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste and sleep mask were included. Staff was friendly and kind. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "The check-in crew was very efficient and helpfull"
Cons: "Boarding was very delayed (1215am became 745am) with no announcement as to why until hours after flight should have departed. Food/refreshments was distributed but not allocated evenly. My elderly mother (the passenger) who was travelling on her own was only able to get a beverage"
Pros: "Aircraft spacious seats comfortable Crew very friendly and welcoming good movie selection"
Cons: "Cues at T2 massive to go through immigration zig zag around terminal Seats don’t adjust well and little leg room when flat. Food uninspiring. Tv fixed lots of reflections. Toilets small."

Pros: "Great crew - polite, friendly and helpful. Excellent service. Good selection of wine. Special meals can be arranged in advance."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes due to Manila airport congestion."
Pros: "Online checkin was easy and actual counter checkin to get boarding passes was quick. The counters were actually open about 4 hrs before the actual flight. Then, we were able to get seats next to each other with an aisle, in a row that we wanted. Departure seemed on time and arrival was about 45 minutes earlier due to a tailwind. Food was good and service was frequent. Attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "At the gates, we were not allowed to bring water, even though this was after the security and X-ray. There was another X-ray station at the gate and the water was from the store next to the gate or from the drinking fountain. Really odd that this was required by the US govt."
Pros: "i like the movies selection , dinner meal which was sweet and sour fish ."
Cons: "They don’t offer meals for people who aren’t beef or pork eaters . Although they had a fish meal the breakfast did not have that option."
Cons: "No movies in thePR301"
Pros: "PAL app is very helpful for tracking feature. You should allow passengers the option to purchase wifi. The food was okay and it was a night flight so most were sleepy to make any noise."
Cons: "Plane scheduled to start boarding by 10:10pm, but announcement of delay didn't air until 10:15p; no real explanation given until boarding started around 11:45pm. The time online should reflect the actual take off time."

Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 45 minutes."
Pros: "The best flight crew and customer service was provided."
Cons: "my seat was broken and would not lock in a either upright or reclined position"

Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Literally every time I fly PAL there is some issue with delay. After boarding we stat on the plan for over an hour before we took off waiting for some other passengers. Also I was at the airport early and wanted to get on earlier flight they wanted to charge me $300 to get on a flight with many extra empty seats."
Pros: "Service from the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I’m over 6 feet tall and the seating was cramped for someone my size. Full service international flights should have in flight entertainment systems."

Cons: "Not enough leg room on the small airbus we had on the Vietnam - Manila leg for someone my height ( 1.83 m )"
Pros: "The flight crew and seats"

Cons: "good flight"
Pros: "Was able to use the wifi to access the internet for free for 30 minutes of the flight. Can pay $20 to have it through the entire flight but limited to on 150 MBs. Transfer at MNL for domestic flight was flawless."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Nice music while boarding. Good food."
Cons: "We boarded early yet it took 45 minutes to take off. No complaints besides that."
Pros: "I flew PAL 2 years ago and was impressed on this flight home. An awesome added feature that blew me and my 10 year old daughter away was the entertainment! My daughter is afraid of flying. But as soon as we boarded and saw this feature, she completely forgot about her fear. She was so pre-occupied during entire flight to Manila that I was able to relax and enjoy the trip myself. There was a great selection of movies available that almost made me wish the flight was longer so I could watch more! The USB charging option was also a neat feature to have. I could easily charge our phones throughout the flight. I was also impressed with how well staffed the crew was. There was always a crew member going up and down the aisle with water and offering assistance in any way possible. Overall I am happy with the flight. PAL has made the trip home easier, more pleasurable and most importantly closer than ever before. Thank you PAL!"
Cons: "It's always difficult to sleep on airlines especially on long flights. I hope one day the seats are much more comfortable and roomier to have some extent ended leg room and better reclining capability."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants from my flight to Manila from Bangkok was very helpful in getting the ground crew to help me transfer from terminal 2 to terminal 3 by using the transfer bus. One of the taxi drivers wanted to take me for 800 pesos. But not only did I not have to deal with traffic on the street but be cause we were riding on the tarmac we saved a lot of time. Thanks to the helpful flight attendant."

Cons: "Personnel were not listening to situation and issues that would be affecting passengersdespite taking to supervisor."
Pros: "It was good other than how long it takes to travel, but that's only because there are no direct flights to Puerto since it's anairport in the making... But other than that, friendly staff. Good flight."
Cons: "I don't like to complain. It. Makes me feel selfish, I didn't really see anything out of the norm, instead I met some great people along the way."
Pros: "easy check in good crew"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Good service. Comfortable."
Cons: "Every flight from Manila to Honolulu was delayed at least 1 hour."
