Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better"
Pros: "Crew took great care of us."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
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: "Boarding in New York could have been better organized"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Air on the plane was stuffy"
Cons: "Check in and apps stuck in 80'"
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."
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: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."
Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."
Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"
Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."
Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."
Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"
Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "Excellent service - delicious meals"
Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"
Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"
Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."
Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "Clean :)"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."
Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."
Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Cons: "Food is not that good"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"
Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."
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: "Plenty of legroom and nice updated interior."
Cons: "No complaints this time."
Pros: "Awesome crew"
Cons: "Old seating"
Pros: "Crew service is excellent!"
Cons: "The seat is really cramp and tight!"
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: "The cabin crew was so warm and friendly, always ready with a smile and eager to help."
Cons: "Simply an older aircraft and the entertainment options were lacking compared to other carriers. The news video NHK would not fast forward or rewind but would always start over. Otherwise it was a good flight thanks"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, attentive crew; good amount of storage in business class; very good food with an excellent variety."
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,"
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"
Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"
Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"
Cons: "Food was really unpleasant and entertainment all out of date movies"
Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"
Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It took a while for them to serve the first meal and I don't know that there was a need for a second meal. I would have preferred to sleep."
Pros: "Crew were super attentive. Friendly and helpful. Food was decent. Nice change from standard fare."
Cons: "This seemed an older plane so the size of the economy class seating harkened back to the days when your legs were numb halfway through the flight."
Pros: "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."
Pros: "That it didn’t crash"
Cons: "It was very delayed and then the luggage still hasn’t come out"
Pros: "Staff and crew were great. Very accommodating."
Cons: "I unfortunately got placed in the middle of one large person and one person who had a strong body odor. Unfortunate but it happens."
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: "Flight attendants were incredible!"
Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."
Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "Meals were decent. Staff friendly. Had no problems and was able to sleep a bit."
Cons: "The economy seats on my plane were strange, they didn't really recline but rather the bottom part of the seat moves forward to make your body less vertical."
Pros: "very clean over a 9 hr flight , great seat and flight attendant"
Pros: "Been flying with ANA ever since I started living in Japan, and it has always been a pleasure. No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
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: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."
Pros: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."
Pros: "I'm always in awe at how the crew operates, everything is tidy and the services are efficient and utmost hospitality. Look forward to flying with ANA again."
Pros: "Friendly staff and great food. Cabin was spacious even for Economy."
Pros: "Crews' performance was good."
Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."
Pros: "I like the nice and warm service from the crew"
Cons: "Food can be more variable but overall its oke"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Cons: "Felt very cramped, seats very close together, headphone jack comes out of the side of the armrest, should come out the front of the armrest, I busted the ends off of two of my headphone cables."
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: "Service was nice way more room than American Delta or United for economy"
Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."
Pros: "Great service! Wonderful flight attendants, smooth flight and ice cream! Will always fly with ANA!"
Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "ANA airline was great! I love the service and the crew was very friendly, answers questions with a smile. I will definitely choose this airline for my travels, I know how they treat the coustomers."
Pros: "Good staff, good service, good entertainment"
Cons: "Although my partner and I bought our tickets together and booked them almost 9 months in advance, we were not seated together, which made the flight more difficult and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardess"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Good Business Class, will fly them again. Excellent service."
Cons: "No meal served upon take off, snacks only."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding Food and service was excellent"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment was extremely limited. For a nine hour flight there was limited movies in English. Especially as we had seen most of the movies on the previous flight."
Pros: "Crew is always awesome"
Cons: "Needed more Japanese movie options"
Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Pros: "Crew services"
Cons: "Seat space, window side, especially foot area no space for my bag and legs"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."
Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Pros: "Flight time shorter than scheduled. Food good. Crew great."
Cons: "Somewhat limited recent release movies compared to Emirates."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"
Cons: "Very cramped. Worst leg of the journey"
Pros: "More space then previous flights. Attendants very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Ran out of the food choices by the time they reached me. Had to make do with what was left."
Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
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 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"
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: "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: "Selecting seats online"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. The flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Return flight from Singapore to DC via Tokyo was more pleasant. The stewardesses were more service oriented."
Pros: "The 787-900 used is a great aircraft from passenger comfort and the overhead bins can take all your carryon bags."
Cons: "Our flight used a remote gate - so we had take a bus to the plane... therefore had to drag our carryon up and into the bus... then up the staircase into the aircraft.. it also made us :30 late departing"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "A few more movie options"
Pros: "Food was excellent and flight crew were really nice,"
Pros: "The crew were attentive yet not invasive and spoke excellent English"
Cons: "I wish ANA few to Denver!"
Pros: "Great crew, food, comfortable flight."

Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "The food was okay... Felt like there wasn’t a huge variety of movies."
Pros: "Food and services are great!"
Pros: "The best airline , good service and the food is so good, compared with air china, Koren air"
Cons: "The seat so comfortable, nice and clean. All time for departure and arrival"
Cons: "Flight was with asiana"

The seats were really uncomfortable; I usually sleep fine on planes but this one left me with a really sore neck. The attendants skipped our section during the beverage service... All around a bunch of small annoyances."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service and tasty food."
Cons: "Was surprised to see how old the plane was, and felt the movie selection was poor. Furthermore, there was no difference from our arrival flight on 12/3 and our departure on 12/17. Hard to pass the time when you have ~30 hours in the air."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew. Great selection of food and drinks"
Cons: "Probably one of the most uncomfortable seat I've ever had considering I'm small and flexible. Space was really tight and I was sandwiched by two bigger people as well. Escaping the plane after 7 hours in that seat was quite a joy..."
Pros: "Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable planes. On time flights."
Pros: "more new movie will be better"
Pros: "Good crew good service"
Cons: "No fault of the crew, flight has terrible turbulence."

Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "very late taking off once boarded"
Pros: "It was ok."
Pros: "the crew was very nice."

Cons: "Good food and clean toilet rooms."
Pros: "I would definitely fly with them again, they went above and beyond in customer service. super friendly and helpful. Very attentive to your needs, the stewardess walks down the aisle every ten minutes to check on you. We flew coach, the seats were a bit small but comfortable enough, and my biggest 'complaint' is that there was nowhere to plug in your phone during the flight. Maybe I've been spoiled on all the new planes lately, but I had grown accustomed to being able to charge my electronics on the plane. Other than that, amazing experience :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to plug in my electronics to charge during the flight."
Pros: "real cutlery"
Cons: "They closed the curtain and wouldn't let anyone in economy deboard until business class was off the plane. That was offensive and annoying. Some stupid woman struggling with Victoria's Secrets bags held us all up because she is either wealthy or a corporate hack?"

Pros: "The crew was polite The flights were on time"
Cons: "The foods on ANA used to taste better. ANA can improve on the food taste"
Pros: "ANA was very professional and made every effort to make sure I was re-ticketed. They met me at the plane exit, escorted me to the next counter. Assume the issue with Shanghai traffic control was out of their control, but it seems very odd they would have booked it this way if this is a normal occurrence."
Cons: "We had over a 2.5 hour delay out of Shanghai, which seemed odd, since a regular flight."
Pros: "Very nice and accommodating!"

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long travel. Very bumpy flight for extended periods of time."
Pros: "First time on ANA. Wonderfull staff, quality service"
Cons: "There is a metal object installed directly at my foot room, which made it impossible for me to put both my feet in front of me. One of my foot had to be on the isle the whole time. Another thing is the quailty of the monitor (a bit out of date) Last thing is where remote control locates. It's not easy to reach for it when sitting. You have to get up a little in order to pull it out from the side."
Pros: "Every is good, especially the air crews are excellent, but the flight sechedules are always change is horrible."
Pros: "Good crew. Nice flight. Newer equipment."

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and a pleasant ride"
Cons: "food service could be a bit more prompt"
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
