They wouldn’t let me board because Japan changed their entry policies and I did not get notified. Had to wait another day, pay rebooking fees and miss my family that I haven’t seen in 4 months. TERRIBLE!!
Cons: "On time and comfortable"
Pros: "ANA flights are always well run and good enough."
Cons: "Their iphone applications could be smoother and more functional."
Pros: "Meal, crew"
Cons: "1. inside temperature was so cold -especially at the 3rd route from la to tokyo -. 2. Economy seats are not declined, which means less pereonal space. 3. The worst is in-flight entertainment system, UI is so poorly developed, most contents do not provide english subtitles."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and the service was reasonably good."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Their friendliness And care for the passengers"
Cons: "i can not think of anything."
Cons: "12:05 am flight back to Lax is good because you can sleep a little then be awake for a good period of time before and after landing which helps promote getting back to normal sooner. Flight got a little chilly whole is was sleeping but otherwise a very good flight."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow near the window."
Pros: "Even though the flight was around 45 min, still got a nice cup of consomme soup while I was working on the in-flight WiFi. Overall good for a short flight but basic interior with poor visibility of safety video on 787-9."
Cons: "Boarding is a bit chaotic. Only people at the front of the queue can see the correct places to stand, so many people were trying to push in the front of the queue because the signs weren't visible from some angles or from far away. Basically couldn't see the inflight safety videos from my seat (17K) because of the curvature of the overhead bins and positions of the few screens (no seat-back monitors)."
Pros: "Service Staff Price Professionalism as the ticketing area Great in dealing with children"
Cons: "The lounge was somehow poor and noisy because of the airport constructions."
Pros: "The service...the food...the entertainmrnt....tq tq tq"
Pros: "Good food. The seats were spacious enough. I used both the pillow and blanket provided. Lots of drinks were served keeping everyone hydrated. Enough staff to manage the needs of everyone."
Cons: "How loud and aggressively the toilet flushes."
Cons: "The business lounge in honolulu"
Cons: "The dinner was served too late, not right after take off. Also, the portions were way too small."
Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."
Pros: "Staff very friendlym Flight was on time."

Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, I was especially impressed when the flight attendants would intermittently clean up the restrooms- something that definitely doesn't happen on US airlines. Good food as well."
Cons: "Again, would prefer a larger selection and more change with movie choices."
Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "Tray is too small and not able to use the entertainment system because it is too short for a tall person. I would be staring down the entire time."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, very friendly staff."
Cons: "seat labeling not clear"
Pros: "Everything flight crew exceptionally nice food and snacks were great flight was smooth other airlines should take a cue from ana even use chilled silverware when serving food not plastic ware like the other airlines no attitudes just awesome service just like it should be ."
Cons: "nothing everything was awesome hope I fly ana again sometime ."
Pros: "Excellent check in experience. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Meals were well prepared and tasty."
Pros: "NH817 NRT to PNH was one of the best crews ever. Every need was met. Best customer service. NH818 was good too but the attention and attitude was slightly below. Travel Dates: NH817 09/1/2017, NH818 09/04/2017."
Cons: "Very good overall. The entertainment could you a little more choices."
Pros: "Everything is perfect!"
Pros: "Good food and service"

Cons: "Person sitting next me passenger wanted fight with me. She told me this is her space arm rest I can not use for over 9 hours. She smelled alcohol and perfume. which made very uncomfortable bad bad"
Pros: "Entertainment system, comfort of the seats, staff, food, basically everything!"
Cons: "It said that the plane was capable of WiFi, but the flight didn't have it, probably just because the route is too short."
Cons: "The lack of legroom in economy class is a serious problem on long flights. I am only 6' tall/145 pounds, Window and middle seats are are not an option for me. This fact Is a strong disincentive to travel (no, I am not willing to pay the upcharge for the minimal legroom increase, i.e. to make that charge worth paying considerably more room would have to be provided."
Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."
Pros: "Very efficient, very fast boarding. Crew was polite."
Cons: "The captain failed to update the passengers and crew of significant change in flight path and delay. The flight flew off course for almost 30 minutes, while the flight attendants required everyone to remain seated due to supposed turbulence. We felt no turbulence for almost 25 mins. No update was given to passengers while we flew far off course. I motioned to the flight attendant, who was seated due to turbulence warning, to ask why we were off-course, but she could not get up. Many passengers were pointing to the flight path animation, to point out that we were flying straight north, instead of southeast. The flight attendant then called the captain for an update, and then the captain finally made an announcement about weather delays around shanghai."
Cons: "can't think of any.!"
Forced me to check my bag and the lost it. Uncomfortable seats No charging capability in under-seat outlet USB charge was incredibly slow Video entertainment was slow and unresponsive Drinks were tiny half-filled glasses, even coke.
Air Canada flights are way too cramped with little leg room. Furthermore, hot dinners are rare which is somehow standard on other Airlines' international flights.
To cold in the cabin instead of A/C the heat should have been turned on. The food is lousy as usual and my luggage is lost. That is about the size of it.
We didn’t get to go directly to Munich because our first flight was operated by Air Canada and arrived late. We were rebooked through London. Lufthansa was unsympathetic and not helpful. Since I paid for the tickets that Lufthansa sold us we had a contract and Lufthansa did not hold up their part.
It never happened. How could you ask me to write a review of something you are not aware of never happened????
Bread stale. Croissant stale. Person behind me was kicking me throughout flight. Boarding slow.
So many minor delays, very little communication, and what there was, we couldn't even hear in the first place.
The flight was delayed several hours with no update as to when we would be taking off. We finally boarded the flight and waited over an hour on the phone for the bag crew to come and load our bags. After landing in Cleveland, both of our check in bags never showed up and are still missing. This is the worst airport and flying experience I have ever experience
There was a 2hr delay to an 8:40 departure. SUPER irritating. Had chosen an earlier flight so that these kinds of things wouldn't happen. Breakfast was poor a croissant and a yogurt. Not enough for an adult, I've had better on other international flights.
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."
Pros: "Service was good. Flight attendants were friendly"

Cons: "Space was limited"
Pros: "Nice touches like pillow and blanket, lots of movies and hot meals."

Cons: "Nothing honestly! Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "food screens"
Pros: "Smooth boarding."
Cons: "The cramped seats, not a lot legroom and people complained once you reclined."
Pros: "Flight was very delayed in Munich"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed in Munich due to a shortage of land and handling crew. Very disappointing. Everyone I know who takes this flight complains about the same problem. Arrived in Geneva around 21:00, 1 1/2 hours later than anticipated time of arrival."
Pros: "Service from Milan to Toronto was good"
Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Cons: "Business class is a rip off. They are economy class seats. They don't recline. No entertainment whatsoever!! Horrible experience."
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. One of the smoothest flights I’ve taken in a long time"

Pros: "The flight attendants all were very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs"
Pros: "Munich airport is very well organized."

Pros: "Easy flight and on time"
Pros: "nice and polite crew"

Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and informative."
Cons: "Boarding process was the worst I've seen. Seats were too small and no space compared to other flights I've flown on similar routes (British Airways London-Amman & Paris-Amman). No tv's, entertainment system. You could download their system but need to buy wifi to access it. Will try to avoid Lufthansa's short haul flights in the future."
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."
Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."
Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
