Flight from Tokyo to Dallas pleasant. One Stewardess offered 1 type of breakfast fried noodles. While another one thought no one approached me but asked if I want noodles or eggs for breakfast. In other words..not same offerings. Upon arrival in Dallas..no wherlchair assistance. Had ro walk from tarmac to terminal, to Immigration, Customs then baggage claim..no help.
All liked. It was very good 😊
Pros: "The flight never occurred. The first leg of my flight from Ho Chi Minh was cancelled and I was not informed. I discovered this when I went to check in. I called Kayak to resolve this since I had confirmation of the booking and was placed on hold. After 2 HOURS I hung up. At roughly 4:00 am I spoke with someone at Kayak who confirmed the flight was cancelled and that I was not contacted. An offer was made to put me on another flight a day later but that was impossible because of needing another Covid test. I was able to arrange another flight that was more expensive."
Cons: "I would like to be reimbursed the difference in flight cost since I was not informed about the flight cancellation."
Pros: "The crew was definitely amazing. Extremely polite and always have a smile on :-)"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better"
Pros: "Crew took great care of us."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment choices of selected movies were limited."
Pros: "Tv audio didn’t work. They forgot to movie me to another seat. I paid for Wi-Fi and it didn’t work with Netflix or hbo go. Luggage was lost too"
Pros: "great food, staff and service. I like it when i can brush my teeth on a over night flight with disposable tooth brush and tooth paste."
Cons: "Flight delay communication could be better. There were some major confusions between the gates on where my flight was going to land and departure until it was finally announced that flight was delayed."
Cons: "Entertaining in English"
Pros: "We were seated together as a family even though we were not able to reserved any seat"
Cons: "Food could be better. Especially the easily digestible meal. It was mostly mush so it's more easily chew meal"
Pros: "All of the crews were polite and friendly, and the food was tasty."
Cons: "If there're more variety of movies, that would be great."
Pros: "Crew very helpful. Seat roomy."
Pros: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Beautifully presented and tasty Japanese food. Electronic windows."
Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."
Cons: "very poor communication of information"
Pros: "Excellent service - delicious meals"
Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."
Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."
Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. They let us switch seats when my boyfriend's TV wasn't working"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."
Pros: "Crews are very polite and willing. They During the entire 13 hours flight, they continued serving drinks and snacks. I have not seen such services on the other airlines."
Cons: "The movies were not the first run ones."
Pros: "The food on this flight was horrible. Big disappointment. Usually, the food on Japan Airlines is wonderful. However, on this flight, the food was a crab/mayo sandwich with yogurt. However, the service was wonderful, as always."
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Great take off, great landing the stewardess were doing excellent jobs to accommodate us. Will fly with JAL again in the future."
Pros: "The food (Japanese) clearly was a league of its own. Service was prompt, attentive yet discreet."
Cons: "Selection of video entertainment could be increased and improved."
Cons: "I never like flying into Narita - each time I have to have my boarding pass reissued and baggage rechecked. I like the YVR process where you just put your bags on a conveyor after clearing customs."
Pros: "Big bathroom, bide, wifi, movies, very good coffee, spacious seating areas, the price of airfare!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I'm an entertainer, very well respected in Hawaii, Japan and the world. and has always traveled JAL. I travel with my guitar and has never had a problem carrying it on board. The staff will usually come a get it and put it in the closet if it didn't fit in the overhead. But I guess recently rules change, and was told I would have to check it in because the closet space is used only for staff and business people. Was told that the 737 was to small for my guitar won't fit overhead. I have taken 737's all my life with Aloha Airlines and told them that my guitar would fit. That gentleman was a JERK! and was'nt very helpful, and told me I couldn't take it on board and I would have to take it to the package store and have them box it up. That spoiled my whole vacation."
Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
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: "Very spacious and comfortable, modern plane"
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "I always find the service on Japan Airline to be excellent. What I really liked, and didn't expect, was that there was individual inflight entertainment systems. Most other carriers on short flights out of Busan don't have that available, so it was a nice option. The meals were excellent!"
Cons: "Food was below standard."
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "The crew were cooperative and the supplies were good"
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable and the toilets were so dirty"
Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "I really liked my experience with JAL. The comfort and overall service of the flight was excellent."
Pros: "Overall service was excellent."
Cons: "There are small metal boxes under the from seats in coach which resulted in less leg room. For such a long flight to have leg room limited even more than normal was quite uncomfortable."
Airplane food was not good from Manila to Chicago. But the flight from Chicago to Manila - food was great! Big contrast
Cons: "On long flights, the seats need to be more comfortable and there needs to be more entertainment options. Also was not sure why we could not book seats even though we booked tickets in October."
Pros: "Time is good."
Cons: "With long flight these two are a must ! Food is very limited and needs to have more movies."
Pros: "Very clean. Crew was very good. Food was for the most part fine."
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty lacking. No paid WiFi service on the airplane for a modern country’s air fleet... only texting."
Pros: "Always excellent Japanese service."
Cons: "No entertainment system, only one channel for everyone in the middle of the airplane like in the 80's. No reclining seats, sit straight only, but decent leg room, unless you are taller than 6ft."
Pros: "Onboard service was perfect - prompt, friendly and professional"
Cons: "The cabin was always kept a bit warm"
Pros: "Crew was amazing.Premium economy seats were superb. Food was also good."
Cons: "Add a low carb meal option"
Pros: "Crew is responsive to requests, and very polite."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was 81F during the night, making it too hot to sleep."
Pros: "There was a lot of leg room and updated features. Also the candy they gave out was good."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking,"
Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"
Cons: "Food was really unpleasant and entertainment all out of date movies"
Pros: "The crew was great, friendly and helpful. The food was good and the overall service on the plane was great."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Los Angeles and we did not make our connecting flight in Tokyo. The next option they had was a full 24 hours later so we ended up taking the train. I tried to make adjustments to one of my flights for the return home and was told that is not an option."
Pros: "That it didn’t crash"
Cons: "It was very delayed and then the luggage still hasn’t come out"
Pros: "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
Cons: "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."
Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Pros: "Very efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"
Cons: "Sitting space"
Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."
Cons: "I thought I would get a little more than a few extra inches in Economy Plus. Maybe an overnight packet (ear plugs, eye mask, toothbrush?) and/or a foot rest for the extra money, but it was literally only a few extra inches of space."
Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."
Pros: "On time. Flight attendants don't shy away from helping passengers put their carryons in the cabin compartments. They were there in a split seconf to assist you - ANA flight attendants only. Food was great in ANA airlines. Toilet is clean. Boardinh was orderly."
Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating flight attendants ... all with a smile!"
Pros: "Food was good also"
Pros: "Cheap prise"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "more new movies will be better"
Pros: "La puntualidad absoluta, la amabilidad de la tripulación y los baños impecables durante las 13 hr de vuelo."
Cons: "Creo que la comida podría mejorarse un poco pero es un detalle mínimo"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "It is a very long flight."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and reassuring though plane late on arrival in tokyo."
Cons: "Due to snow in Seattle area plan departed 2 hours late which made a short connection time, but all went well."
Pros: "I like the nice and warm service from the crew"
Cons: "Food can be more variable but overall its oke"
Cons: "Width of the seat for me was bit tight when in a flat bed position."
Pros: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Cons: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Pros: "Great airline!"
Cons: "some of the gates can be long walk"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and people where freezing in terminal. They eventually brought blankets and snacks."
Pros: "I like the courteous and efficient service of the whole crew."
Cons: "I didn't like part of the journey to USA to be run by UNITED."
Pros: "The food were good and just enough for the inflight need"
Cons: "The time to get to the next flight is so tight! I wish there's a 30 minutes more so I don't have to rush and be the last one to get in the plane."
Pros: "The airline made sure my family sat together when I couldn't get seats together online. The food was waaaaaay better than the US carriers, and the service was impeccable. 5 stars for ANA all around!"
Pros: "The stewardess constantly walked the aisle looking to assist the passengers...no disappearing act like one finds on other airlines. I was in business class, so the food was very tasty."
Cons: "Seats seem extra small, narrow and short. As a window seat there was very little room between the seat and the wall. Food and entertainment average to below average (compared with Qantas, Singapore Airlines)"
Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardess"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Pros: "highly efficient processes on ground (Narita airport), clean and enough space in airplane, exteremely supportive and polite staff"
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Pros: "Good air crew. Good manners and attention to detail. Excellent members at check-in."
Pros: "My son can not eat peanuts, I am so happy you offer the peanut free meals. And ANA always have good sevice."
Pros: "Very friendly crew both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "Entertainment options (movies/TV) are rather limited and mostly not to my taste. Entertainment was also the same on the flights there and back, meaning that on the second flight, there was even less choice."
Cons: "There was no information about connecting flights before landing."
Cons: "More food variety"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, flight attendants were attentive and the food wasn't bad."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I have found out that the few dollars i spend more on SQ is well worth it"
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "USB and plug for every seat, reasonable leg space and leg rest, good food choice and very attentive crew."
Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."
Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "I felt safe ( important to me) and had just the right amount of attention from staff Very comfortable"
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Although we took of a little late but we landed as per schedule. Service was personalised! Great trip."
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Sound sleep"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Cons: "Crew rarely walked aisles with water. Gluten free meal was mediocre. Seat was old and uncomfortable. Entertainment options were mediocre."
Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold"
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "Movie selection, very helpful crew and good quality food."
Cons: "Aircraft was dated with old business class seats which are worn. Minimal options in movies to watch"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "TV options and headphones"
Cons: "Entertainment system is way too old"
Cons: "The aircon was not cold enough"
Cons: "Services can be better"
Pros: "The Crew was very Good and yes the seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Everything was outstanding"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight was delayed (both ways) and after not having flown Thai Airways for many years, I would have thought the meaning of "TG = Tomorrow Go" has been improved to "Today Go" The boarding process literally remains back in the "stone age" compared to the total modern aviation advancements!!"
Cons: "The boarding process could and must be improved!! What's the point of having modern technology like self-automated boarding machines installed at the airport and not using them? People should be boarded by zoning instead of letting people acted like this is the last flight out of Saigon!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Complimentary polaroid Photo taking for families or kids or couples and friends. Photo can be placed in a special thai aiways frame for memory. If this is done while the flight is preparing for take off l, its gives a great start for the trip. Gifts for kids?"

Pros: "The food was better than the last time."
Pros: "They had good movie choices"
Cons: "The stewardesses, for the most part were rude, almost because they were lazy. I had one get pissed because I asked for oolong tea when she was offering coffee or hot tea. Well the cabin was so hot during the whole flight, I didn't want anything hot. She made it seem like she had to go out her way to get it for me. It was on her cart!!! They rarely walked around the cabin to make sure they couldn't get something for you or even take your trash. I held an empty cup during almost an entire movie. When I finally got up to toss it, I gave it to a stewardess who was standing right there by the closes curtain who acted like that it was beneath him to do so. They would rush up and down the isle and pretty much shove your meal on you. Ugh they were just rude. None of want to be there either, especially when it's so hot in the cabin and the seats were so narrow!!"

And another stewardess takes the request and same thing happens finally when they do come back with the blanket and new request for headphones its with the worse face ever. Jesus"
Pros: "Ground agents were courteous and boarding was well-managed and quick"
Cons: "Difficult to converse with on-board crew who were not very well-versed in communicating in English. It is evident that the in-flight crew preferred conversing with passengers who could speak Thai. Seats were cramped and not enough leg-room. Very uncomfortable for a 6 hour flight Service crew adopted a "get water/juice from the galley trays yourselves". Having requested vegan/vegetarian food, the food options were limited and very bland. They lacked flavor and were not properly cooked. In-flight entertainment options was old and in-seat monitors were small."
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment limited, arrival in BKK terrible, offloading a 747 with busses is a no go. Long waiting time in plane."
Pros: "Wow, a 747 offloaded by busses, what a ridiculous idea!"
Cons: "Wow, a 747 offloaded by busses, what a ridiculous idea!"
Pros: "We didn’t crash!"
Cons: "Old plane (747). Not very attentive staff, I had to ask for a blanket 4 times before I got one. This certainly isn’t acceptable in business class. My meal choice wasn’t available. And I had to pay $50 to change my flight to a different day (again not acceptable for a business class ticket. I’ll avoid Thai airways wherever I can from now on. #avoid When I rang the Singapore Thai office they were unable to change my ticket to a new date and kept pushing me back to the online travel agent. Called Thai in Bangkok and they did it on the spot. Very inconsistent service."

Cons: "Had to ask for blanket not on seat ready for use."

Pros: "I kept my appreciation of Thai friendliness easily as I flew home. I loved watching the documentary of the late king"
Cons: "The trip was long but that was my own issue of course"
Cons: "Boarding process quite disorganized. Business Class, Star Allince and everyone board almost at the same time. There was a old printer super noisy and anoiying in boatding area.... please change it or use something to cover noise....."
Pros: "I love the Japanese style food as well."
Pros: "I love the food especial Thai food. The air craft crew are very helpful."
Cons: "My friend request for extra ice cream and the crew rejected her with very loud tune."
Cons: "The service was not that great. Normally the staff is very attentive but they lacked in service this time and I am not an attention seeker. (In all the flight I ask for their presence 1-2 times for water) Who knows why. Got served the wrong plate and drink."
Pros: "ANA is an outstanding airline with some of the best crew around. I make the trio to / from Bangkok 2-3 times a year and this is the only airline I fly"
Pros: "Large terminal was not packed, no rush to board but still left on time. Cabin was fairly empty at the back of the A380, so lots of space to stretch out. Frequent food and beverage service."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive, movie and tv options were great."

Pros: "Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances."
Cons: "Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking)."

Pros: "Japan is so nice and clean. People were very helpful. Good food."

Pros: "Service was even better on the second leg of the trip and the leg room and seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "More new release movies would have been good."
Pros: "Loved that the crew boarded everyone accorsig to seat zone starting with the backmost part... enabled speedy boarding and you'd think this would be SOP but many PAL flights don't do this. Always happy with the refurbished aircraft and selection of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online due to the kind of ticket I bought. Was willing to pay for bulkhead seats but had no chance due to unavailability."
Pros: "Fast boarding and very nice staff."
Cons: "Seats were hard to recline"
Pros: "The comfort of the cabin and the service from the crew was superb."

Pros: "Staff were nice and offering drinks/water even without me asking"
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm according to one of my seatmates"
Pros: "I got to the airport at 4:45 am (who urs and 15 min before scheduled departure). The airport employees couldn't find my flight. They said the 1st ANA flight is not till 9:30 am. Then after 30-40 min of confusion, searching, etc, they sent me to another terminal which was 40 min away! Where they couldn't find my flight either at first. Then they finally came back and said that per their schedule, the first flight out is on ANA is at 6:45, not 7. And the reason why they couldn't find it is because it was only code share ANA but operated by Philippines airlines. As a result I missed my flight, missed my work and had to deal with co sequences. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Liked the staff, friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Ran out of food options at the back of the plane."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and just barely fit into my seat. Two inches taller and I wouldn't have fit at all. I know they're marketed towards a primarily Asian audience, and the plane was totally full, but don't expect to be comfortable if you're bigger than 6'."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed without any communication for the reason. Overall delay was less than one hour but it is frustrating"
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The flight left Singapore 4 hours late. It caused me to not be able to take my fiancé to the movies before bed. I also only got 6 hours of sleep last night instead of 8. They didn't have any in flight entertainment for a 4 hour flight. It was really bare bones and it was slightly more expensive than other choices."
Pros: "Overall flight and crew service were excellent"
Cons: "I wasn't able to enjoy the entertainment due to poor wifi connection"
Cons: "Wish the seats were bigger."
Cons: "There is a lot to improve on with their food. As the main Philippine carrier, they should make adobo in the best possible and original way that returning residents will immediately feel they are "home"."
Cons: "Manila airport and airline staff are terrible"
Pros: "comfortable plane, nice crew, on time"
Pros: "the flight attendant service, politeness and attentiveness."

Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave at 7:30 PM, but got delayed to a 10 PM takeoff. You'd think the crew would be apologetic, attentive and considerate given the time change, but it was even the lead flight attendant who kept making announcements (duty free, serving dinner, weather, time, seatbelt status change, everything). Nighttime flights are supposed to be more peaceful with announcements kept to a minimum, right?"
Cons: "Food was awful and no entertainment"
Cons: "Horrible service, delayed every leg of the flight for 2 and half hrs. Staff are very lazy and the plane was so dirty! Especially the bathroom. The food was bad also. Omg I will never take this airline again"
