Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."

Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."
Pros: "JAL is great!"
Pros: "Crew was really professional and friendly, I sat beside a mom with 2 kids and the crew really helped her in her needs and made sure we were all okay. Food was good and I loved the movie selection, watched all the Oscar movies I've missed."

Pros: "Simply excellent !!!"
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: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."
Pros: "Everything was good, solid across the board. Nothing to not like. I especially liked the legroom in economy. Probably the best legroom I"ve had in economy."
Pros: "food was great movies are updated flight attendants are professional and courteous"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."

Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."
Pros: "Last minute accommodation for Muslim meal was awesome!"
Cons: "Transit in NRT was too short! Didn't give me time to buy souvenirs.."
Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Only a small bread í offered for breakfast for a 7 night flight. Expectation is to have a standard flight breakfast."
Pros: "They were super considerate the entire flight."
Pros: "As always, the Japan Airline's stewardess takes care of you so well, they really make your trip a very comfortable one. (Think the Japanese airline crews are the most caring, with thorough service, and they are surely one of them."
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."

We were truly blown away and so grateful for the wonderful service and welcome."
Pros: "Recently we traveled to Tokyo with ANA airways. As was expected both our flights were perfect . We would like to recognize both crews - NH113 March,4, 2016 and NH114 March,15, 2016. Special thanks deserve the crew of flight NH113 on March,4 did everything above and beyond to make our flight enjoyable. We never had been to Japan before, but already on plane we felt welcome to country of rising sun after receiving "welcome" card from beautiful flight attendants who were working that day. It was touchable moment for me and my husband. The crew of NH113 deserves high recognition for their outstanding job."

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."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive and came around often with snacks and refreshments."
Cons: "Entertainment was a little lacking."
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."
Cons: "One was too warm"
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: "Once I got to Taipei I had a 22 hour layover. I called to see if I could get an earlier flight and I was told there was one. I just needed to go talk to Eva to check on price. The woman was rude and then told me there were no more flights. I am in the process of starting a business in Bali Indonesia and I will be flying from the US but will not use or recommend Eva."
Cons: "A little delay in boarding but after other airlines I flew this has been best by long shot"

Pros: "Yes & yes"
Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."
Pros: "crew was excellent"
Cons: "seat was better this flight."
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."

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: "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"
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"
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")"
Pros: "Great service. Nice plane. Flight attendants were attractive"
Cons: "The crew needs a bit of retraining. It's almost like we are unwanted guests on there aircraft rather then the customer."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and my luggage made it through the connection."
Cons: "The audio on the TV didn't work, but otherwise, no problem."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in to HK. The restaurant staff (not airline staff) came round offering HK$ 75 to each passenger for a snack. This much appreciated, but I wondered why a restaurant worker was doing this, not airline staff. Being delayed into Osaka, the captain kindly told us that buses were arranged. Good! I thought, until the organization was seen. Ground staff were no where to be seen. Eventually found them huddled at one arrival gate directling passengers to buses. Other passengers at the other arrival gate similarly swirling around without info or help. staff unhelpful, rude, uncaring. SHOCKED by level of incompetence."
Pros: "Staff was great. Very nice."
Cons: "We were 2 hours late. Missed our rental car. Sat on the tarmac for a very long time with no information."
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "Boarding priority for infants"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad quality wise and some of the crew members were really short tempered drill Sargents who were in a very bad mood"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice."
Cons: "My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "Not much. The pilot did try to keep us updated on our 5 hour delay The airline had conflicting rules on getting off the plane while waiting at the gate the pilot said yes, the attendants said no"
Cons: "At least offer water while trapped on a plane"
Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."
Pros: "Newer plane. Standard American amenities. Fast WiFi and live TV channels."
Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."
Cons: "I didn't make the flight because the connector to Philadelphia was delayed. The replacement flight isn't until tonight - 24 hours after I was scheduled to leave."
Cons: "never made the flight. a day of misery thanks to poor communication within one world, AA rigidity, and chaotic long lines at FlightConnections, Heathrow."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The Avianca flight was over 4 hours late. We missed our connecting flight with Star Peru, and had to buy new tickets with Viva Air. We spoke with an Avianca supervisor who told us it was not her company's fault the flight was late. Avianca had a flight that night to our destination but they refused to find space for us, or to issue some type of refund or voucher for our lost time and money."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great at boarding and organizing the overhead bin space. Also, ground staff didn’t start check roll aboards before the overheads bins were full. There is nothing more frustrating than getting on after forced to gate check your bag to empty bin space (ahem, United at SFO)."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the entertainment to work."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."
Cons: "Very cold airplane"
Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "I like it was fast and smooth"
Cons: "Not too much space in the plane"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"
Pros: "Staff was professional. Beverages were plentiful. The quality of the wine was actually quite good."
Cons: "Not enough toilets for the number of passengers."
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Please use the A330 for the return trip..."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Pros: "Long wait for take off. Everything else was great."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"
Cons: "No food chips chips very POOR POOR"
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Pros: "I was lucky to have a window and slept well on my flight. I liked the flight was smooth. I also am glad we landed safely."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Pros: "American Airlines is amazing!"
Pros: "I landed"
Cons: "Flight was changed which left me with five minutes to get off one plane and onto another. I got to my first gate early and attempted to ask the person there about the timing. She walked away without looking at. On her way down the hall says it will be open in an hour. An hour later I go to the gate. A woman is there and finishing up with another customer. When it was my turn, she said she was closed, yet she helped the joy behind me for over an hour. I know this because I got In the generic questions line and stood there for an hour watching the woman who was "closed" help this guy. When I was FINALLY able to talk to someone, the only thing he told me was to walk fast. That was well worth the 2 hour wait. I will never fly with American again."
Pros: "I used points to bump up this flight to first class and was very grateful for the delicious food and extra room. We received good service from attendants who checked on us often to bring extra drinks and answer questions. I see now that it's worth the extra money/points to fly first class. Thank you for making it a great experience!"
Cons: "I felt the flight attendant who first served me was a little brash. We were seated for what seemed like extra time before takeoff so I ordered a mimosa when asked if I wanted a drink. She seemed reluctant to give it to me so I wish she had explained that there wasn't much time or explained any hesitations that she was maybe trying to hide from her expressions. I was only 1/3rd finished with the drink when she practically grabbed it from my hands and said she had to take it away. A warning would have been nice, I could have finished it faster. Then during the flight when I ordered another one so I could actually enjoy it, she still seemed hesitant/judgmental and finally said "that will be the last champagne the plane has." It was an awkward experience that I didn't appreciate. However, this same attendant seemed more friendly throughout the flight and was kind and helpful."
Pros: "Nothing at all !!!!!!!"
Cons: "We waited 6 hours at the airport. American Airlines kept changing our gate number from gate a17 to gat a39 to gate a9. Then at midnight we received the noticed they cancelled the flight but before we received that the attendance at the counter all left. The display above gave us a number to call or we could go wait in a line with over 100 other people we started to for about 1hour and was on hold on the phone at the same time as we watch customer relation people leave while the line got bigger. Soon there were only 4 people with a long line. We left after 1 hour but stayed on hold on the phone. After over a hour we finally got through on the phone. The next fight isn't till sat even, we were leaving Thursday so we said we needed to cancel our flight. Instead of them doing the cancelling and refunding our money we now need to login after 24 hours with or tickets an request a refund. The fun doesn't stop with American Airlinees. We have flown them in the past for years and their service has gone down terribly since the take over."
