This flight never happened because Kayak and ChatDeal let me buy this flight without notifying me that Japan still has a travel ban in place for individual tourists. They only refunded me $1100 of the almost $1700 I paid initially.
Overall experience from checking in to boarding off - everything was painless and comfortable. Nice treatment. Special meals was good. Nothing to complain about. The seats were quite comfortable and had ample leg room. Will fly again with them,
缺點： "American airlines, No entartainment, no hi hello from the crew, no food, not even water... Funny guys, why the have flight people inside the plane :) domestic airlines are always joke compared to the world domestic or overseas...."
優點： "I like how the crew made rounds hourly to provide drinks and ensure we are good! Also appreciated when they were able to accommodate last minute meal changes!!"
優點： "Seat super comfy"
缺點： "All okay"
優點： "I paid extra to get bulkhead seat. But the monitor won't stay up. So I asked for help. Flight attendant used duct tape for both my monitor and the one next to mine."
缺點： "My boarding pass was marked with SSSS and I was subjected to another security search at the gate in NRT! They laid out all my carry-on stuff in 2 long tables and swabbed both my hands. Then sent me on my way, leaving my passport on the table. Good thing I had the presence of mind to look for it!!!"
缺點： "Good space with large seats. Good food and service."
優點： "Crew was amazingly nice, friendly and very helpful..."
缺點： "The 767 business class seat from Tokyo to Jakarta could be better. Movies and other entertainment needs more variety. Not enough movies..."
優點： "The crews were very kind and helpful."
缺點： "PA announcements could have been louder. I also had difficulty understanding when I could hear the English words."
優點： "Quick flight"
優點： "crew was professional, attentive and polite"
優點： "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."
優點： "The food on the plane is really good. The airline assistants are very friendly. The whole trip is really comfortable."
缺點： "The travel is too long for me. If there’s a direct flight, it only takes 12 to 13 hours for me to land but this trip took me 19 hours because the weather and they have to change the transfer spot to another in Japan."
優點： "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."
缺點： "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."
缺點： "Choices were few by the time the cart got to us and the food was... airplane food. Nothing terrible but nothing to write home about nor anything a picky child would eat. :/"
優點： "Check in early and easy.... Bags straight through to Sydney... JAL... What other airlines should aspire to."
優點： "Was fed a meal and snacks/drinks for this connecting 3 hour flight in economy. Hard to sleep in the economy seats, But with a blanket and thick clothes it would be better! Japan Airlines crew extremely nice!"
優點： "Crew was great, just like Japanese specific hospitality. Crew clean up toilet and keep refilling toilet supply. Airplane was nice and clean. Entertainment equipment was up to date."
缺點： "I could not log in in JAL website using mileage account. They said it has been maintanance mode for a while and could not tell when it would be completed. I tried a month later but the problem was not solved. They foward any problems and inquiries to reservation center but calling the number won't find anyone to talk. Always they put me on hold for hours and never reached anyone. I have food allergy and tried to request for special meals but the option was not there under my eticket number as described in their website. They say the option may not be available because I purchased my ticket from 3rd party, not from JAL or it was code share flight. Very inconvenient. I had to skip 2 meals out of 3in leaving for Japan. I got very hungry at the end of the flight...."
缺點： "The attendants were very pleasant and efficient. I will certainly prefer to fly JAL, especially if you could offer the lower rates. On the down side, it was very difficult to contact their customer service line. However their online help desk was very responsive."
優點： "good flight"
缺點： "food is ok"
優點： "I was randomly upgraded for the first 10 hours of my trip to Premium economy and it was amazing. Two big hot meals served throughout the flight and plenty of drink service. lots of leg room and could recline comfortably. Flight attendants were wonderful and very helpful. Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
缺點： "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."
優點： "Awefull I did get to use my ticket"
缺點： "Japan could have helped me change my name in my reservation to match my passport"
優點： "Super cheap roundtrip flight. Reliable airline. Flight even came with a meal both ways. Kind staff. Good service."
優點： "Ok seats but not quite lay flats. Lay at an angle. Great service by staff"
缺點： "Entertainment selection was outdated. Very dated. The food selection was limited. The cabin was noisy"
缺點： "Why does the shorter of the two flights have more comfortable seats?"
優點： "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."
優點： "The seats were very comfortable, the staff were friendly"
缺點： "we requested for halal food when we booked the flight, but they brought us the normal food which we couldn't eat"
缺點： "No individual AC vents to stay cool on long flight."
優點： "Asian vegetarian meal"
缺點： "limited rest room facilities"
優點： "Food was great, plenty of room, lots of movies"
缺點： "Same thing as above"
優點： "Our flight had a long delay, but one we were on board it was a short and smooth flight."
優點： "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."
優點： "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
優點： "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
缺點： "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."
優點： "The aircraft was clean and boarding went smoothly. The flight was late but the staff seemed courteous, polite, and apologetic for the delay."
缺點： "I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal when I booked the flight roughly 1.5 months prior to my trip. However, when the meal was being served, there was only a chicken or pork option and my vegetarian meal had either not been properly booked or had been forgotten. When I informed the staff, I was asked to show proof that I ordered a veggie meal. I could not pull up my email confirmation as we were flying and there was no internet access. I had to lug my bag out of the overhead and search for a print out confirmation. I had not come prepared with the "evidence" the stewardess wanted. While the staff tried to be polite, I also found them to be quite rude, demanding that I produce evidence. Could they not have simply given me an extra salad without all the fuss? I felt I was being treated as a criminal for requesting a veggie meal that had, unfortunately, not been recorded in their system."
優點： "Love Jan service!!!"
優點： "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
缺點： "Long, long flight, not much leg room."
優點： "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
缺點： "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."
優點： "This was the first leg of 3 flights back to the US and it was great!"
缺點： "There was nothing bad about this flight."
優點： "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."
缺點： "I wish they had a larger movie selection, but they had most "New Releases"."
優點： "Great movie selection, food was decent, good beverage service, good temperature in the cabin, good leg room"
優點： "Everything !!!"
缺點： "Food was very bland"
優點： "great service and help with everything!!"
The crew are very polite and attentive, the plane is comfy and clean. The food could have been better. It's not for all people's taste. They should give atleast two meals in a 4-5hr flight, a snack and a meal coz the portions are so little.
Choice of movies were limited
優點： "The attentions to the passangers are much more friendly than the ones offered today by the american and european airlines, which are today getting more and more cold and unfriendly."
缺點： "The second food service."
缺點： "Seat padding - seat was a bit firm"
優點： "The cabin staff were extremely caring."
優點： "Crew was great as always, giving excellent service. American airlines would do well to send their crews to observe how it should be done."
缺點： "The food and the drink selection."
缺點： "Movie catalog needs to be expanded"
優點： "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."
缺點： "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
優點： "I enjoyed the flight because the flight NH9 wasn't fully booked, I used my next seat too. Also, the crews are generally better then usual, more smile. Food also better than last severity trips."
缺點： "Even so, food can be better. I want more western drama on entertainment."
優點： "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."
缺點： "I was seated at the exit isle, ample of leg room, but the seats were very narrow. I barely fit into the seats. I noticed the seats behind had smaller arm rests so they had more space. The movies on board need upgrade."
優點： "Very comfortable flights. Exceptional crew on and off the planes. Great food and drink/snack options. Lots of entertainment options as well."
缺點： "I have no complaints abouts my flights. Travel is tough at times but ANA made it seem easy."
缺點： "The flight was delay .and I can’t able to catch my connecting flight I have to extra money for other connection flight"
優點： "Very uncomfortable chairs. Food was gross, tasteless and dry. Crew is excellent."
優點： "Very efficient"
缺點： "Food was not good"
缺點： "The business lounge in honolulu"
優點： "Easy checking process. Friendly staff"
優點： "Flight was fine"
缺點： "I asked for a small water bottle (early flight from Tokyo to Jkt they gave a small water bottle) and it seems they mase a big deal to give me one and I traveled with my 2,5 yo and I tried to keep her hydrate since she has problem with dryness ans her skin"
優點： "Good service"
缺點： "baggage was broken."
優點： "ANA use the Boeing 787 for this leg of the journey. This is the best plane flying in the air right now."
缺點： "Nothing to dislike."
優點： "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
缺點： "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."
優點： "It was fast and the crew got right to it as far as take off and getting home."
優點： "easy check in."
缺點： "can't choose my own seats."
優點： "Food was quite good"
缺點： "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."
優點： "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."
缺點： "Food was too smelly. Good quality, but airplane food cannot be smelly or it get really unpleasant inside the cabin. Flight attendant need to learn and practice English. Very difficult to understand."
優點： "Good food, seats were comfy enough for a 4.5-hr flight."
缺點： "Better Hollywood options for entertainment."
優點： "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
缺點： "It was way to hot on the plane, I actually couldn't even sleep because I was sweating so much. They give out blankets so I would think it would skew to the cool side so people can adjust themselves. Nothing you can do when it is too hot other than suffer."
缺點： "late again and hot in the cabin. sat on the runway for a while again"
優點： "Wonderful service"
缺點： "Food was on the very bland side"
優點： "The crew has always been so polite, they seem like they are actually having a good time :) The planes have always been clean, and I've never seen a fellow passenger complaining."
缺點： "While I've always had plenty to eat, I'm not always familiar with some offerings...but that's on me."
優點： "The flight attendants in the Economy Class did an excellent job throughout the flight."
缺點： "There was nothing I did not like."
優點： "The flight was very well organized and the plane left on time and arrived exactly on time. The service was excellent even though the plane was close to full."
優點： "The ANA crew were very sweet and accommodating"
缺點： "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX. Seat selected at time of booking was not honored since selection has to be done on United Air's web site. Did not get the meal I ordered for the same reason. Very short time to get from arrival gate to the connecting gate at Haneda."
優點： "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome. Seats can be a bit cramped but we were in economy and it's a 9 hour flight so some discomfort is expected. The 3 meals served are complimentary and very much appreciated. The entertainment system is an easy to use touch screen with great options from Hollywood and other movie sources."
優點： "The meals were delicious. Japanese option was a seafood bento and breakfast grilled whitefish. Tasted fantastic and well presented."
缺點： "The premium economy seat was about average. Comfort okay but not the best for sleep."
缺點： "crew not able to understand English"
優點： "Great service. Crew are kind and friendly!"
優點： "Good food and service"
缺點： "Delay too much time"
優點： "Love the staff, helpful and polite!"
優點： "Great service and great food"
缺點： "No complaints from me"
優點： "Again, the flight attendants were kind and tried to be very helpful."
缺點： "The entertainment system was difficult to figure out and maneuver around and it seemed like the choices of movies were all sad."
優點： "leg room; extra seat between us"
優點： "I slept most of the way home so didn`t use the entertainment."
優點： "Attendants are helpful and polite. There is actually leg room in economy section. And they were on time on all 4 legs we flew with them."
優點： "The flight got me home."
缺點： "I don't like that I had to gate check my carry on because the overhead bins were too small but it wan't a big deal."
優點： "very good service comfortable seat"
優點： "ANA service is always great. Always my first choice."
缺點： "The 777-200 on this route is getting a little old. It would be nice to have one of their newer 787 planes instead. And there is no Premium Economy option."
