Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."

Pros: "The on board service was very pleasant. Enjoyed the movies on my seat's TV screen. Enjoyed the food very much!"

Pros: "The small plane from Toronto to Chicago was operated by American Eagle. The airplane is a small. I do not have leg room, but overall it was a decent flight."
Cons: "Small airplane"
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."

Pros: "Wonderful flight...so great getting premium economy...so comfortable...crew and food were great....one of the best long flights ever!"
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Pros: "Flight was very good. Entertainment and power on new Dreamliner is excellent. Food - better than the hot dog we received as a meal on the LAX-KIX flight. Still just ok overall. Seat comfort is ok but more recline - at least in premium economy."
Pros: "Couldn't ask for anything more than what was offered. Flying is never exactly a pleasant experience, but JAL makes it as painless as possible. Food was excellent and staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times."

Cons: "Plane was a bit old, headphone jack barely worked and the screen was scratched to hell"
Pros: "Meals at good times during the flight, complimentary wine served, comfortable seats. Overall better than any other airline for economy class.

Cons: "I did have any negatives on this flight"
Pros: "The whole service was great. And the airplane arriving on time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "This is not related to the flight itself, but EVA could do a better job of communicating useful information on its website. Because of covid 19, Taiwan recently banned foreigners from entering Taiwan. I was concerned that this might affect my travel plans since I needed to change planes in Taipei. A clarification of this policy on EVA's website would have been VERY helpful, especially since their phone lines were completely overwhelmed."

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."
Pros: "Great entertainment, pretty good food."

Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "Fastest service ever from Manila to Houston. Arrived earlier than ETA."
Cons: "The food was horrible. Everything served was with brown sauce. Not toomany choices."

Cons: "My flight was able to be rerouted to Europe from Philippines. 2-3 month wait for a very small refund on my cancelled return flight (cancelled by me)."
Pros: "Loading and unloading was quick and easy. There was sufficient room for our overhead luggages."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available. The cheeseburger was very low quality."
Cons: "Some movie subtitles does not work."
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: "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: "Excellent all around. AFAIK no other airlines offers the 5 course meal Eva does in business. The seats are spacious reverse herringbones. Crew is friendly, and service efficient. Anyone coming from a Western carrier would be impressed."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is a bit weak. Doesn’t bother me as I bring my own entertainment, but may bother some."
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: "The staff are nice..."
Cons: "Pork was the only option in that flight."
Pros: "Stewardess pleasant food ok"

Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "comments exactly like above except this time i did not ask for wine."

Cons: "For such a long flight the seats are very uncomfortable. The flight cabin doesn't seem to have a flow which is depressing cause they are a big part of the experience"
Cons: "Giveaways for kids we're not the best. Had better ones with other airlines"
Cons: "Flight crew was unfriendly with myself and other passengers."
Cons: "Not much movies to watch"
Cons: "I thought the quality of the food was better on my flight from New York to Taipei, but breakfast was delicious on both trips."
Pros: "Everything except flight attendants walking too fast in the cabin"
Cons: "Flight attendants were walking too fast in the cabin. Sometimes right in front of my face while I was walking to the lavatory without warning. They just sneak and cut you off without saying excuse me, sorry, or simple letting me know they're passing through. I don't mind but I was afraid that I would crash into them and injure either of us."
Cons: "No place to sleep in the airport"
Pros: "The economy seats were okay, not much leg room. The staff let us know when there was a delay on the tarmac. the plane was clean."
Cons: "Two of my friends who at the chicken ended up getting food poisoning on the Bangkok to Tai Pei leg of our trip. Not fun for the 12 hour flight to Los Angeles. The food left something to be desired."
Pros: "Mechanics of aircraft. Boarding."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Not enough staff for such a large plane. Food was not good and took a long time to get our first meal. Could not understand English announcements because she was not very fluent. Probably would not fly China air again."

Cons: "improve food with better choices"
Pros: "Friendly and smiling"
Cons: "No fruits after service for dinner"

Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!"

Pros: "Crew was very accomedating and friendly"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight attendants."

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: "The flight TPE - HAN was fine. The flight SFO-TPE was OK. The seat in premium economy did not recline properly. Service seemed to disappear for several hours during the flight. I am not as excited about using premium economy for my return. The seats in economy look very narrow."
Cons: "Answered above. The seats looked bigger and better but the equipment looks tired."
Pros: "The crew were good"
Cons: "Food is not good"
Pros: "The overall experience was great. The plane was clean and spacious. Entertainment and food was excellent. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "I did not like my seat as it was near the toilet which made my flight a bit uncomfortable. Possibly for those persons who do not sleep throughout the flight, more can be offered. Maybe the flight attendants can walk around more to check on passengers as it is A very long flight."
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Pros: "Food was a solid ok!"
Cons: "They cycled heating and cooling during the flight, but the heating can be a little too much and make the air difficult to breathe and felt really stuffed and dry in the space."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "Chairs in business class in A 330 were not too good in my view"
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: "Flight was slightly delayed. Lots of confusion and no information in English. Competing with two other big flights at same gate for Madrid and Rome. Wasn't sure whether I was supposed to be boarding."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."

Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable and very close together. Very booked flight"
Cons: "Airline somehow cancelled our spot on the flight without us knowing, only found out when we were doing the checkin at the airport. What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."

Pros: "Nothing about the flight I can recall was pleasant"
Cons: "From the time we board at Taipei, the gentleman checking our ticket was rude. The flight crew member was not straighten out the customer who are loud and causing trouble for other customer. Seat was uncomfortable and small. I've suffered back pain due to the cramped seating and also my seat reclining was broken, every time I've tried reclining it just snap back. The food was bad, the bun/biscuit was hard when given to us."
Pros: "I had a sudden swelling of my feet and ankles while flying to Asia.. China Airlines was very accommodating to me and had a wheel chair waiting for me at the gate... Never had this happen,,, So they were very helpful and considerate..."
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."
Pros: "Online was very strict in not discounting anything. There was room in Business class and I paid full price. Most airlines have a deep discount when searched a few days before the flight. So, that might fill the vacancies in business and make me a faithful passenger. The disability assistance was very good in Bangkok and Taipei. Disability assistance was horrible(wheelchair) assistance in SFO. I had NO assistance for 90 minutes to obtain a wheelchair while .d waiting to board my departure from SFO . The same was true but worse on the return to SFO. I was let off the plane LAST and the wheelchair was not there and I waited. The wheelchair person parked me outside the gate and said NOTHING and walked away. After 15 minutes waiting for his return, I went on my own and nearly passed out waiting in the horrible immigration line. It took 120 minutes from leaving the plane to getting in my car at the airport. Ridiculoius and a violation of Americans with Disabilities ACT."
Cons: "Already stated."
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."
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: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
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: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."

Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"

Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."

Pros: "Great boarding system and all crews were attentive and polite."
Cons: "more sauce on the meat."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was attentive. The main flight attendant knew our names and greeted us as we entered and left the plane by name. The food was very good and wine pairing appropriate."
Cons: "They did security checks at the gate rather than upon entry to the concourse. It slowed everything down on boarding. Any double check caused a delay."
Cons: "Never on time. Almst missed connection. Planned on 4 hours. Downn to the wire. Nevermore."
Pros: "Very nice purser and her crew. Accomodating. Love the safety video!"
Cons: "Different option other than hot sandwiches for mid flight snack"
Pros: "Philippine Air staff are amazing. They will do everything possible within their power to make you comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are a little thin and the angle does not give adequate lower back support."
Pros: "Flight itself was great, but my luggage was lost in transit and staff have been very unhelpful in getting it back to me."
Cons: "Better way to deal with lost luggage, and they need to automatically deliver it to our address instead of tell us that we need to go back to the airport to pick it up ourselves. It’s been a huge hassle."
Pros: "The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "We waited a long time to take off once we boarded on account of the plane not done being loaded."

Pros: "Flight was on time, and was not overcrowded. Flight crew was polite."
Pros: "From on-line checkin to baggage claim in LAX was easy."
Cons: "At the gate, we had to go through another security check, which was fine. But I had to surrender the water bottle that I just bought from the concession stand across from the gate. The reason I was given was that the US rules require water is not allowed to be carried into the plane... In-flight entertainment did nto have many choices of action films."
Cons: "waiting 2 hours for the plane to park"
Pros: "Beautiful plane and crew. On time. Comfortable economy seats. I can’t complain. The food was no worse than any other carrier in economy."
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "The offer of assistance before I even asked for it; genuine concern"
Pros: "From the moment I entered the plane, I was greeted by smiling faces, smooth jazz, and a perfectly air conditioned temperature. It was at this moment that I knew I was in for a treat. There was so much leg room, I closed my eyes at one point and felt like I was laying on a beach in Hawaii. The plane had a fantastic movie selection and great cuisine. Even the crying baby in the row over was such a delight!"
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was how much I liked it!"
Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "No options for vegan or vegetarian meals"
Pros: "Nothing really , service was ok but nothing special"
Cons: "The lounge was terrible , the food was average in the lounge , no international magazines or newspaper, the plane was so so so , food mediocre, entertainment was not good either ,"
Pros: "Don't normally like leaving from JFK, but it was a direct flight to Vancouver, and the price was right. Also, they included 2 free bags in economy, a big savings. Also the meals were ok, and wine was included. Entertainment system was fine."
Cons: "Would have rather left out of EWR, but for the price it was worth the bit of inconvenience."
Cons: "As we landed 15 minutes early we were forced to wait 45 minutes on the plane because our gate was occupied. after we finally got off and went through customs we waited another hour to receive our luggage. When the luggage finally came out the crews luggage was the first to come out. So we all watched as the crew gathered their luggage which took another 15 minutes. Shouldn't the paying customers be first?"
Pros: "Boarding was organized. Food was excellent. A couple of complaints from fellow passengers were handled very professionally by crews. Leg room was not an issue for me as I am an average Asian height but for medical purposes - there should be a policy for them to separate sick-looking passengers from older passengers and children."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."
Pros: "Great service, lots of movies to watch with free headsets provided, seats reclined even in the economy seats, and flight was fast and smooth"
Cons: "Un-organized boarding with late gate change"
Pros: "The flight was on time, actually even earlier arrival. I enjoyed watching the movies for free!"
Cons: "One of my checked-in luggages, upon retrieval at the baggage claim area, did not have its luggage cover and worse, it was not locked!!! When i went to the PAL baggage assistance desk, we found out that it was inspected by TSA. So disappointing that TSA did not lock my luggage."
Cons: "People trip me indiscriminate"
Pros: "The staff is always hospitable. I was pleased that they left a snack for me even when I was sleeping because when I wake up I was hungry. I also like the disposable toothbrush and paste provided. And bathrooms on the flight were clean, unlike some other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as good this time as my previous flight with Philippine Airlines, but not a big problem.problem"
Pros: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."
Pros: "Seats should be improved, thicker and more comfortable. Honestly I preferred standing halfway thru the flight . It was like concrete!! Rice was so mushy thought it was mash potatoes at first . Crew was exceptional w their service and the washrooms were kept clean even towards the end of the flight. Very important."
Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"
Cons: "Delayed flight and suddenly PAL require each one of us to check in our carry baggage."
