Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Landing was horrible worse landing I have ever had"
Pros: "Fast and eady"
Cons: "Couldn't pick seating or check in online so I was separated from my husband"
Pros: "As expected not overly done nor less of comfort and services. Only it was confusing that I had to move from international terminal to Domestic terminal due to first transfer was with in Domestic airport."
Cons: "I have purchased Japan Airline to travel but unexpectedly I had to deal with American Air for half of my flight. God help them please. It was hell from start to finish. Japan Air, I feel sorry for you that your alliance with American Air."
Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"
Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."
Pros: "Food is better than most other airlines. Seamless check in and boarding"
Cons: "Seating space is quite cramped"
Pros: "The courtesy and professionalism is a 10."
Cons: "Checking in with Japan Airlines was a serious hassle. I had my e-ticket but they kept asking me if I had already paid. The flight was apparently overbooked but than at the last minute, they gave me and my girlfriend seats separated from each other. I sat in the back, she sat in front. The tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."
Cons: "This is a kayak feedback - I thought I bought a cathay/jal flight. Well I was out of luck when I tried to fix situation. Broker in between introduce by website made it impossible to rebook flight in practice. Those website are very practical to look for flights but unless they give you the company direct you are better off switching to company site and book it there. Broker not equipped to be of any 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: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"
Cons: "Like all of it except lack of vegetarian option for food"
Pros: "All were very polite and were very through when checking the cabin before departure and landing"
Pros: "All fright attendant are so nice and polite, also pretty. The meals are great and they served nice ice cream for dessert, the good quality ones! The bathroom was always clean, they keep it up so well. there was even toothbrushes and paper cup! I really enjoyed it even though I was in economy."
Cons: "only limited number of movie."
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The level of service in Business Class was perfect. Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "I thought the food was just so so. However, that's always a matter of personal taste."
Pros: "Superior service in a great and spacious plane."
Cons: "Seats are a bit flat and shallow, besides that it was awesome!"
Pros: "All was efficient but no standout"
Cons: "Nothing was bad enough to mention this column"
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Pros: "Food & entertainment"
Pros: "A meal on a two hour flight is an amazing perk!"
Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "Great service and comfort. Great food. On time."
Cons: "Outgoing plane was older and had stains on the chairs, walls, etc. But still comfortable."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"
Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"
Cons: "on a 12 hour flight they served meals only twice, at the beginning and at the end.. i was really starving in-between for somethign heavier (though u can ask for those biscuits etc).."
Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"
Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."
Pros: "During the flight the air hostesses we're constantly attending to passengers. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Cathay and JAL Provided excellent customer service throughout the the flight. Everyone did an excellent job and went out of their way to make sure I made flights and had what I needed."
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."
Pros: "I enjoyed the amenities. I flew economy and was treated like a first class. Will definitely fly with Japan airlines again !"
Cons: "Everything was great !"
Pros: "evening flight. not too crowded"
Cons: "delayed by 1 hour meal was so-so"
Pros: "The crew on Japan Airlines are exemplary! Very efficient, polite & service with a genuine smile made this a very pleasant trip. Also, I had recalled on a flight I had taken a long time ago, how impressed I was at how clean the restrooms were maintained. Well, the high standard has not changed. Very impressed & looking forward to our return flight home."
Cons: "Cannot say there were any negatives."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, pleasant crew."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "There were movies."

Pros: "Crew was outstanding, the aircraft were very comfortable as a result I arrived relaxed and ready to go!"
Cons: "Really everything was exemplary"
Cons: "Movie selection was a tad bit small"
Pros: "Korean Air has top notch service from crew members. Very kind and accommodating. They will really go out their way to make you feel comfortable. They also serve food on the short flight which not all airlines do between Korea and Japan. Seats are also comfortable; more leg room than other airlines."
Cons: "They only gave a tuna rice ball, which I couldn’t eat because I am vegan. I wish they were more accommodating for people who eat other kinds of diets."
Pros: "The food was great and I was glad they had such good vegetarian options. It was nice they gave us pillows and blankets."
Cons: "It was an overnight flight and they had the lights on for a long time and kept coming by to hand out things which made it hard to sleep but it was still nice they gave us the attention. I’d also like to see fewer wasteful disposable food containers."
Pros: "Good food. Good communication."
Cons: "More water."
Pros: "Comport seating"
Cons: "Food quality needs to be improve"
Pros: "service/food excellent"
Cons: "old aircraft with outdated and worn 'cradle' seats that are hard to find these days. Unlike claimed it is not a flatbed type."
Pros: "bibinba(korean food）was very good rfor me."
Pros: "Punctual take off and landing, attentive crew, excellent entertainment system (Especially for short haul flight). One of the best meals I’ve had in the air too - great that this along with unlimited drinks was free!"
Pros: "Food, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. It was a 90 minute flight and they served a sandwich, fruit, salad and water plus juice or soda. Very friendly and efficient flight crew."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "I like the Korean bibimbap food in the movie selection was good for the Korean and Asian movies although there were just a few"
Cons: "People did not follow the boarding orders everybody just lined up all at one time and the crew let them on board even though they weren't supposed to go on so even though I was supposed to board first I could board last. I didn't really like the selection for the Japanese and Korean m music with no CJ pop and Kpop like more traditional Japanese music like Koto and more traditional Korean music"
Pros: "Oh this was such a great flight... service was perfect!"
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: "Again on board everything was wonderful. The A380 was the most comfortable plane I've ever been in. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later. I was injured and in a wheelchair and this was not only a major inconvenience it was also poorly handled for someone who needed additional help. It was every man for himself. I was very disappointed"
Pros: "Nothing our tickets had to be cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled with Korean air. We attempted to check in multiple times with issues on the Korean air website. we called and they told us not to worry. Finally, approximately 12 hours before departure we wwere able to check in Only to find out due to the expiration date of our passport we would not be an allowed to check in. We scrambled to get an emergency passport, however by the time it was received we had already missed our flight. Korean air is not willing to aknowledge this as a fault in their system and is instead suggesting this is a kayak issue for allowing us to purchase these flights. I would like the total flight cost refunded as this should never have been allowed to be purchased if Korean air knew at the time of purchase when checking in there would be an issue."
Pros: "The food choices, included Korean dishes. The disposal slippers are great when taking shoes off. The air hostesses were friendly and helpful. Good leg room"
Cons: "There was no priority boarding for family with young children, and the boarding sequence was not accordingly to rows, so the boarding process was a bit disorganized. Not enough snacks. Soda was poured out in cups rather than giving the passengers the whole can of soda. Movie selections were not that great, many good current movies were not available. Was disappointed that it was the same set of movie choices as the previous flight. The toilets really needed attention, it was quite dirty and it smelled. Seat does not have enough lower back support, was literally having to sit on my pillow and blanket due to lower back pain. The temperature was not cool enough and it felt warm."
Pros: "very accommodating for handicap"
Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "I wish they still bumped people to first class when there was room :)"
Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"
Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"
Pros: "They cared about my father when he arrived at hos destination. This act was very nice and I appreciate the airline for being so helpful."
Pros: "Staff is so friendly. Amazing legroom in economy, comfy seats. The food was great. They even offered packets with tooth brush and tooth paste. The plane's cleanliness is also stellar. I took a 14.5 hour flight that felt like a 5 hour flight. Korean Air's attention to detail sets the bar for all airlines"
Cons: "Nothing negative what so ever."
Pros: "As good as Economy gets. Blanket & pillow, slippers and toothbrush; clean bathrooms; decent legroom. Would fly them any time."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were, professional, charismatic, observant and friendly. They toldly made this trip enjoyable. Pilot, funny, kept us out of turbulence gave me a smooth ride... Korean Air ranks as one of the best flights I have taken in Asia.. thank you!!!"

Cons: "No legitimate complaints."
Cons: "Flight change ruined whole trip. Return flight is diverted to another country. Overall it was an awful experience"
Cons: "Meal quality in economy is really poor, much poorer compared to four years ago, when I last flew Korean Air, and poorer than Asiana, which I flew last year. Flight attendant serving our section kept knocking into aisle seat passenger, including knocking over his coffee cup and spilling coffee all over him and the passenger next to him. Flight attendant's reaction was to panic instead of handing over napkins or paper towels - was mopping up with my napkins and tissues by the time she showed up with some paper towels. I was left with the impression that flight attendants were picked more for looks than competence. Checking in at Incheon took a very long time - they should open more counters or give warning to passengers of how long it can take."
Pros: "By far the best airline i have ever travelled on"
Cons: "The service, quality of airport and new aircraft"
Pros: "Flight attendants are awesome."

Pros: "Timeliness Appearance of crew. More leg room. Variety of entertainment"
Cons: "It appears the flight attendants catered more for Koreans than others. On several occasions they would ask Korean passengers if they wanted coffee, tea or wine. They looked at me and deliberately ignored me. This happened on Flight from Houston to Manila. From Hong Kong to Seoul and especially from Seoul to Houston. I had to ask thrice for a head phone before I got one. I was wide awake."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terrible."
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."
Pros: "Wonderful international flights - a bit more leg room from SFO to Seoul than Seoul to Hong Kong. Generous meals, snacks and beverages. Best service economy international flight!"
Cons: "I did not like having to rush through the transfer from Hong Kong to Seoul to SFO. customs in Seoul can be slow. wish their baggage limitations carried the same from initial flight to the transfers."
Pros: "한국 국적기라 그런지 모든게 완벽함. 카약 고마워용. everything is so perpect thx"

We had a very short connection but were met as we got off our first flight in Seoul and given great instructions about how to quickly get to our connection through security while our flight to SFO was being held for 15 minutes. The food was very good, choice of movies and TV excellent. Our bags made it to SFO despite the short connection. All in all I couldn't ask for a better way to make a 20 hr trip to the other side of the world."

Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "poor boarding arrangement. passenger did not follow the boarding group arrangement boarding the plane."
Pros: "I like the services from Singapore Airlines."
