Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"

Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"
Pros: "It was great..."
Cons: "Lavatories on domestic flights in Japan are tiny. Like, super duper tiny."
Pros: "The crew was polite, responsive and friendly. The food was very good and served hot. For a flight to Japan, I thought $1,000 round trip direct from Boston was an excellent price considering you got 2 complete meals and additional snacks. Much more than I expected. Would fly Japan Airlines again."

Pros: "Crew was very polite. Great food and service."

Pros: "All of the crews were polite and friendly, and the food was tasty."

Cons: "Flights should enter from back to front that way you're not waking over people to get your seat.-"
Pros: "I was randomly upgraded for the first 10 hours of my trip to Premium economy and it was amazing. 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: "Small carry and carry on bag"

Cons: "Everything!"
Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"
Pros: "I felt well taken care of the whole time. When checking my bag, the attendant saw that I have a middle seat, and got me an exit row window, which allowed me to sleep.

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."

Pros: "Comport seating"
Cons: "Food quality needs to be improve"
Pros: "That the bathrooms are kept clean."
Cons: "Lack of beverage service. For an 11.5 hour flight they could have come around more often to offer pop or alcoholic beverages."

Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Business would be better"
Pros: "Plane was clean, staff very friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment not provide despite international flight of 4 hours. Excessive extra luggage free compare to Singapore airlines and Sri Lanka air. Food was meh"

Pros: "The service and food is good"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Korean Air's policy is to have the air temperature set at 24 Celsius. Who does that? Even in our homes, nobody has their temperature set so high, even in the cold weather months. It is ridiculous!!"
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: "Can't think of one think.. this trip was flawless"
Cons: "The waiting and boarding procedure -- either at Bangkok Airport or at Seoul Airport, I forget which -- is a little unusual. A written description of this would have been helpful along with the boarding passes."
Pros: "Never flew this arline before but gave ut a try since it's a skyteam affiliate. Wasn't disappointed. Flight was simple and team was nice."
Pros: "Loved the slippers toothbrush toothpaste Liked the in flight meal Entertainment was great Roomy and comfortable. My seat wouldn't recline so they let me sit in the back seats reserved for the crew so I wold be able to recline and sleep in the long flight to Korea."

Cons: "Still no laptop plug"
Pros: "Flight attendants are awesome."
Cons: "The guy next to me was very drunk. He scared me a little bit."

Pros: "The crew are friendly, the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The seats is clean . Crew ware nice to me."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Everything was good except the space for reclining."
Cons: "My seat needs to go back further so I can sleep. Maybe about 3 inches."
Pros: "Boarding process was pretty smooth. Food was OK and the on-flight entertainment was good. I liked having the camera on the plane where you could see over where we were flying as well as the frontal camera. Also liked the map views."
Cons: "I had heard so many great comments about this airline and overall airlines traveling abroad. Yes the plane looked nice and the flight attendants looked flawless, but I had no luck when it came to the flight attendant that was in charge of my isle. She was not friendly, and gave me a judgmental look when I asked for a refill for red wine. Tickets are very expensive and I'm sure most folks using this airline have made lots of efforts and sacrifice to be able to pay for their trip. Such was my case, as I was on vacation with my sister and had been planning for this trip for a very long time. Seats were very uncomfortable and it was warm inside the plane the whole time. in the end we got to Incheon safely and on time, and I guess that's what matters..."

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

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

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

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly staff, smooth check-in and boarding. I love the simplified, smaller Boarding Pass that can actually fit into your passport and doesn't stick out as a sore thumb."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Ana is the best"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary.

Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Short flight, needed to purchase food"

Pros: "The movie selection and food served were pleasant surprises."
Cons: "Sore butt after 10 hours , but that's hardly anyone's fault. No complaints about my experience. 10/10"
Pros: "The service was great, complimentary movie selection was fantastic."
Cons: "I requested strict vegetarian meals in advance, was given items that violated this request. Further, the items which were in accordance with my dietary restrictions were generally not satisfying."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating and amazing flight crew."
Cons: "The flight crew was great. Also there was more then enough in flight entertainment for the entire flight."

Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "Crew did their best despite the poor circumstances."
Cons: "Be on time, even delayed time was not on time. Seats are tightly packed together. This resulted in cramped seats and not every row having a window. Aircraft pressurization is uncomfortable compared to newer aircrafts. No onboard entertainment system. Only serving of food is small snack and drink"
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: "Everything are good"

Pros: "Bathroom very nice. Food nice."

Pros: "the crew tried very hard to be pleasant and nice. they did well on that."
Cons: "the seats are too crowded. i couldn't eat the entrees-mystery food. i would have liked a bigger selection of movies"
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 ."
Cons: "If flight attendant is sick, she shouldn’t work."
Pros: "They made sure the second flight didn’t leave without me."
Cons: "Connection was way too tight and the first flight was delayed."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flying is okay but landed is terrible"
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: "I like it when they checked in our hand carry bags free of charged.They make your travel more pleasant and comfortable.."
Cons: "I don't like the food choices and sometimes the entree itself looks messy and unpalatable..The flight attendant only offer drink just one time in a 10 hr. flight not like Asiana and Korean air..Flight attendant just sits at the end of the plane chatting..lol.."
Cons: "Food ia not that good. Need to have more flavor"
Pros: "Seat reasonably comfortable in Eco Plus"
Cons: "Flight attendants forgot drink order, boarding didn't happen until 15 minutes after scheduled time with very poor communication from ground staff"
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: "Best airline I have been on for several years and I have over 500K miles on AA."
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: "Great service by the crew / flight attendants! Good food (to me) We lucked out due to not a full flight"
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection (though we did find some interesting Asian films to watch ....)"
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: "Everything is wobderful"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and entertainment are good."
Cons: "Although we were checking in ahead of most, we were getting the back seats which I am not comfortable with."
Pros: "TPE-SEA had a much better crew and plane that was much newer and had good entertainment sets"
Cons: "The crew for the SEA-TPE were an unhappy bunch. If you did not speak mandrian to them, they simply ignored you. They were rude and made me feel like I was a second class passenger TPE-KUL KUL-TPE had no entertainment. Just the screen to share in the front of the plane. I wish I knew in advance."
Pros: "The value for money is very good with EVA. The planes are modern and clean. The staff is very friendly. I will no doubt be flying with EVA again!"
Cons: "Nothing major to say here; just a few suggestions. I find the meals and entertainment to be a bit lacking compared to other airlines of the same caliber. With that being said, the value for the air fair charged is hard to beat."
Pros: "excellent staff, and care for the passengers. definitely the best airline i have ever flight with."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice."
Cons: "Old movies. Need more drink service on 14 hour flight."
Pros: "Great customer service, amenities and comfortable flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, metal flatware, toilet amenities"
Cons: "Didn't care for the cordoned off waiting area at the gate in Manila airport"
Pros: "It was a turbulent flight. I was nauseous and broke out in cold sweat. I could not eat any of the foods for fear of vomiting. Flight attendants are very responsive to requests. Washrooms are clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Flight attendants kept on telling me to push my handbag under the seat multiple times when the bag could not go any further and yet, ignored a woman's backpack on the opposite aisle that was just plopped around her feet."
Pros: "Great Service by the Crew! Very very cordial and accommodating. Seats are 3-3-3, and very comfortable. Food tastes great."
Cons: "The IFE didn't have much variety, got bored after the first leg of the journey."
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."
Pros: "I like the food, the crew was so cheerful when you board the plane."
Cons: "I ask for a cup water because I'm so thirsty but the crew didnt gave any water and she just pass by."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and not too pushy. My flight attendant, Nico, made me feel welcome throughout the journey."
Pros: "We were on the hello kitty theme plane so was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "No usb to charge electronics"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Everything was good . Yhe only problem is the small portions of food."
Cons: "Captain concern about security."
Pros: "This flight left nearly an hour late, which at 1 AM really hurts. The crew were ok, but the flight seemed understaffed, and our service in premium economy was pretty ordinary."
Cons: "Total gong show getting to our connecting flight in HK, but Cathay Pacific got us there with only seconds to spare."
Pros: "Yes & yes"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "crew was excellent"
Cons: "seat was better this flight."
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."
Cons: "I found my pillowcase has a long human hair. And noticed the same in the other pillows around my seat. Also, the tray table has a few spots of food stain. One of the toilets, the hinge of the toilet seat is broken"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great"
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms, cramped seats, and still can't believe they still load the front of the plane first... takes forever"
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and boarding was easy."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Crew is very good and efficient, generally very friendly and helpful. Seats are fairly spacious and comfortable. The flight was only slightly delayed. Food and drinks are quite readily available. Meal quality is nothing amazing, but it's definitely not bad."

Pros: "Crew was attentive, plane was clean."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff."
Pros: "As per usual, Cathay’s service was top notch. Friendly, courteous crew, good food, a great entertainment system with a great selection. This particular flight was very smooth and, as it was only around 65% full, I was able to stretch out and get some sleep."
Pros: "Crew were outstanding and food was awesome"
Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "Very hard to understand air host's english."

Pros: "Leg room, food, airline staff"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were great, entertainment had lots of options"
Cons: "They only had this tasteless shrimp slop leftover by the time they got to me for dinner. I didn't eat it and asked for a snack after and was refused. Other than being hungry it was great. The next meal was fine also."
Pros: "Food was alright. Service was good. FA’s attentive."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather in nyc, lights turned on in am and the. Turned off again after breakfast (confused senses). Ran out of certain meal types."

Pros: "Seats weren't much comfortable."
Cons: "Food wasn't bad but above average."
Cons: "Ordered a vegetarian meal that was never delivered."
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."
Pros: "Entertainment is always highlight"
Cons: "Crew services- trying to put my backpack up the space on the rack. But the crew says it is better to put my backpack under the chair. He explain it is more convenient to me. What's the reason he think it is more concienent to me. I dont understand his thought. I feel disappointed with the services. The crew are no professional. Please provide more training to these people"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"
Pros: "not a full flight so obviously more comfortable"
Cons: "did not like having to deplane then reboard"
Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"
Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"
Pros: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Made it easy to sleep even in a middle seat."
Cons: "We had to wait outside the boarding area until right before boarding. Also they did not allow me to reserve a seat when booking."
Pros: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."
Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew did not offer beverages or bottled water for coach passengers. The lights were left on for most of the redeye despite it being a 5 hour flight. The plane was old - there was food from the previous flight in my seat when I arrived. The blanks and pillows looked used and worn. Our flight arrived 45 minutes late with no explanation - it seemed to be a result of the slow/delayed boarding process. I will avoid Cathay Pacific going forward."
Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"
Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia. Staff need to take control of the plane and have people prepare for take off a lot quicker than they do. I only experience this with Cathay and not other Asian airlines."
Cons: "Service.. Got ignored when asked for coffee. Got ignored when food choice came around. Lady sitting beside me also got same service ignored"
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
