Pros: "Just excellent. Excellent crew, excellent food, excellent aircraft, and excellent leg room. No recommendations."
Pros: "The experience was really good. I’ll be using JAL again."
Cons: "Keep doing a good job."
Pros: "One of the JAL ground crew was fantastic at Narita airport. I didn’t have enough time to get on my next flight. She provided me full assistance to take me to the connecting flight gate on time."
Cons: "Several flight attendants gave me wrong drinks."
Cons: "I didnt get bulk head seats that are near the restroom for my disabled father. He had a terrible flight"
Cons: "Very good airline except for the fact that the staff at Narita airport."
Pros: "The meals were an experience in itself. It felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant."
Cons: "The seat cushions in economy class could be softer. My rear end was feeling it after the long 11 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Very nice crew."
Cons: "I was unlucky and got the corner rear seat that had no window. Glad it was a short flight!"
Pros: "the Level of service and the Japanese culture was evident at every moment of this flight. Our boarding process was delayed by almost an hour, and it felt like every 5-10 minutes we had an update as to what was going on and why, then passports were checked early, and service was top notch."
Cons: "In my perfect world, we would have updates way in advance if there are mechanical or airport issues but that is a slim to none chance. That is about it. Everything else was amazing!"
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
Pros: "Some of your reservations staff in Los Angeles needs to be counseled"
Cons: "Been more polite especially mike in your mileage program."
Cons: "Food was really unpleasant and entertainment all out of date movies"
Pros: "Crew on ANA is always the best Also custom check in was amazingly fast, I went to the side custom check in by accident (there are two) It took less than 5 minutes, I didn’t not know I had to fill another card to leave japan but it was super easy as there was a person to guide me + basic info"
Cons: "Other than chairs being more comfortable nothing really"
Pros: "They were very helpful in changing my seat to an aisle seat. The first meal was rather mediocre. The second one was good. The seats were spacious and comfortable and I did not feel claustrophobic."
Cons: "They were very helpful in changing my seat to an aisle seat. The first meal was rather mediocre. The second one was good. The seats were spacious and comfortable and I did not feel claustrophobic."
Pros: "Slept much of the time"
Cons: "My head phone didn't work. Only one ear. Asked for two replacements but neither worked, one broke."
Pros: "Same level of exceptional service on this second leg of my journey. I am looking forward to my next two flights with ANA when i return home."
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Pros: "The cabin crew was always found to be welcoming and co-operative attitude. Rest Rooms (Toilets) were found to be clean whenever visited."
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "Customer service on ANA was as stellar as always."
Cons: "Chairs are uncomfortably small for an international flight. Was fairly surprised since it's such a long flight."
Pros: "A great flight with friendly staff, comfy seats, good food, and great inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The international transfer process at Manila airport was the worst I’ve ever seen. They had about 20 people standing at a desk for about 90 minutes with no explanation as to what was going on. In that time, nobody was released to go to their gate, but they wouldn’t explain what was happening. There were about 10 airport staff standing there, mostly doing nothing. The process was inefficient, to say the least. There was no place to sit, no toilets, no order to any of it. In most international airports, after you deplane, you just walk to your next gate. There seemed to be no logical reason for that awful experience. It would have been much faster to go through customs and then go through security, walking directly to the gate."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, crew, seat, food"
Cons: "The person on duty at the desk of the lounge in Johannesburg was very unfriendly and even rude."
Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "flight as always delayed, food and inflight entertainment system choice are very poor - crew always on the PA for non sens announcement in 3 languages"
Pros: "Innovative seating arrangements in business. Service was good."
Cons: "Comfort of seats and laying position are ok, a bit hard for 15 hours."
Pros: "miracle fight landed on time"
Cons: "terrible food - poor entertaiment system with limited choice and old movies - crew always on the pa"
Cons: "The baggage of all first class passengers was delayed beyond the time of the later flight .. ridiculous .. also flight delayed as is usual tor all flights in and out of Bangkok. The food on the flight is not appealing .. the front of the seat fell down onto the legs.."
Pros: "Service is up to par. Seat is good. Enough legroom. Smooth flight"
Cons: "The meal is awful. Not enough meal options. No menu handed out to the passengers. There are only two meals for 11 hours flight."
Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."
Pros: "The overall boarding arrangement is smooth. Crews are friendly."
Cons: "The further delay made us arriving Hong Kong at midnight. We reach home at 1.30am."
Pros: "Airlines staff took my complaint seriously and found the bag at Hongkong airport. Later the bag was brought to SFO and delivered at my temporary stay. Very good job done."
Cons: "On arrival on 10th Sep at SFO, I found one of my checked-in baggages was missing. This made me bit worried. I made a complaint to airlines staff there. Some inconveniences caused since I kept my needed cloths in that bag."
No entertainment. Food was okay! Seats were okay as well. Overall boring trip.
Food was good. Plane was new as well. I think I can not complain any thing.
The seat selection before check in seemed to be complicated rest all is good
Cons: "Leg room was terrible in economy and food was poor from the USA"
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy this flight as everything seemed very unwelcoming here"
Cons: "Take care of passengers for drinks and others. Treat passengers with other languages nicely rather than in condescending way. I saw air hostess laughing among themselves and being little short with passengers who couldn’t communicate. The boarding process was very chaotic with no groups."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Boarding totally chaotic, someone was in my assigned seat, plane was very late, food was crappy, no legroom , seat and armrests uncomfortable , constant screaming babies, smelly passengers, music only came out of one speaker, music kept jumping from one song to another and then back !"
Pros: "I was traveling with a baby alone and crew was very supportive"
Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."
Pros: "Used both front and back doors to board the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding wasn't well organized. It would have been more helpful if rows (1 through X) used the front door and rows (X+1 through Y) used the back door. We had people seated in the front of the plane using the back door and people in the back of the plane using the front door. It slowed the whole process down and was rather chaotic."
Cons: "During the main meal many many passengers had no option for the main dish.. Only vegetarian dish! Many passengers didn't eat."
The flight was in an old, stuffy aircraft. The flight crew looked tired and over-worked. The food and films were poor and lacked any quality. The flight was late arriving and then the door failed to open. I missed my connecting flight and was delayed more than 9 hours - for a MUCH longer and unpleasant trip. Air Canada should be avoided whenever possible.
Check-in agent at YYJ was very terse and unfriendly, And this was at the priority check-in post. Maybe she was having a bad day. The flight was an hour late leaving. On board crew were great. Waited 20+ minutes for priority baggage at YYZ, so got to my hotel much later than expected. On balance, not a bad experience.
Stuck on arrival due to issue with engine turning off on the runway
Several delays caused us to miss our connecting flight. (Be sure to ask for a meal reimbursement) Several ticket counter people were too stressed to answer our questions regarding new connections.
A few delays on the way back with stressful transitions between flights, but the flight to Canada was fine. A would suggest a min of 2 hours between the flight to make sure you can reach them easily.
Food was not nice.It’s not only my opinion but the opinion of many.People were seen grumbling.During the trip from Delhi to Montreal the food was nice.Except for this everything was nice.
It was delayed and I could not make it to my connecting flight
Flight was cancelled as soon as I landed in the airport. Had to scramble to find another flight home.
Air Canada has really gone the extra mile to start winning customers back. The cost of the flight (using Aeroplan points and eUpgrades) was by far the winning ticket. However, everything about the flight was smooth. There was a 30-minute delay departing Calgary but we made that up in actual flight time. The flight attendants couldn't have been more helpful. A wonderful experience!
The meal service could have been better for a 14 hours flight especially in business class
