Excellent except for food
JAL is one of the most professional & efficient airlines I’ve experienced. The food was very good: even in Economy! The entertainment interface needs some updating.
Our connecting flight was cancelled, then our luggages were loaded onto a different flight that came in after the day of our arrival at Philadelphia. We arranged that we would pick-up rhe luggages from the airport, but AA delivered them instead. So we got our luggages at the end of the day already.
Left late I am glad I did not have a connecting flight
When the flight arrived with a delay at HND, international transit pass angered were allowed to off board. We were nearly late for the domestic transient though… then when we off board, we were advised that we won’t be able to transit on time but we were not offered a hotel but hotel search help. Not a joke regardless the reason. 2,800$ ticket but hotel of 80$ can’t be paid by the airlines? It’s the government policy staffs told us kidding! I won’t fly with Japan airlines from now on although my wife is a Japanese. Cheap flag carrier of Japan. Shame on them.
優點： "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."
缺點： "I would like to be reimbursed the difference in flight cost since I was not informed about the flight cancellation."
優點： "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
缺點： "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."
優點： "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
缺點： "Not one thing."
缺點： "I didnt get bulk head seats that are near the restroom for my disabled father. He had a terrible flight"
缺點： "Very professional and friendly crew. Food quality was excellent."
缺點： "Nothing. This company deserves its reputation for excellence."
優點： "The EMIRATES flight was nice. Japan airlines has good leg room."
優點： "I like the guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind."
優點： "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
缺點： "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."
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： "The window shades were so cool. Seat was small but fairly comfortable and I like the foot rest."
缺點： "No vegetarian options on the main meal menu"
優點： "Flight experience in JAL is excellent."
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： "Excelent good service.Staff are friendly."
缺點： "Almost i like everything"
優點： "Crew was really professional and friendly, I sat beside a mom with 2 kids and the crew really helped her in her needs and made sure we were all okay. Food was good and I loved the movie selection, watched all the Oscar movies I've missed."
優點： "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."
缺點： "How about being stranded at Narita Airport due to bad weather AND not helping your passengers rebook. Told us the flight was cancelled at 10:30pm when suppose to fly out at 7:30pm. No trains or hotels available, only way to rebook was through their phone service? Which didn’t open until 8am. Why not rebook at the ticket desk, guess what? You can’t!"
優點： "Nicest crew I have ever seen!"
優點： "Amazing service and amazing food! For such a long flight I was extremely comfortable! Loved that the crew members kept me informed since I was spotty with Japanese they were very good!"
缺點： "Can't really say anything bad! It was great!"
缺點： "I wasn't able to pre-select my seat."
優點： "Premium comfort seats are worth it especially on longer flights; totally recommend. Plum wine is a great add to menu"
缺點： "You need to call to reserve seat. Then was told I could only upgrade at the airport and not on the phone, risking to loose the few available premium comfort seats. Old movies. Poor red wine. Food still just okay."
優點： "Excellent food. Lots of food, drinks. Comfortable plane."
優點： "Food is better than most other airlines. Seamless check in and boarding"
缺點： "Seating space is quite cramped"
優點： "Seat width, Crew Service,"

優點： "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."
優點： "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!"
優點： "Economy seating the best in the business."
缺點： "Old movies"
優點： "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."
缺點： "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
優點： "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
缺點： "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."
優點： "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."
缺點： "As usual it is most difficult moving through the airport in China. It took a long time to get our bags and they were "damaged", however my box made it without difficulty."
優點： "Always a pleasure to fly on JAL. Despite a cramped seat in economy, the flight attendants made up for the uncomfortable seat. They are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Time went quickly."
缺點： "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
優點： "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"
缺點： "on a 12 hour flight they served meals only twice, at the beginning and at the end.. i was really starving in-between for somethign heavier (though u can ask for those biscuits etc).."
優點： "Very attentive service, very comfortable seats on economy, good food, excellent attention to detail"
Food from Philippines to Japan was excellent but served a little late. Food from Japan to USA WAS LOUSY and they only served hot food one time for breakfast which means 2 hours away from arrival. Hot food meal should have been served 2 hours after boarding in an airport where everything ia closed after 9 pm. Some of the connecting passengers did not have a hot meal for at least 12 hours or maybe more.
優點： "Love ANA. Always a pleasure."
優點： "Food is bland, boring. Entertainment contents are limited and old movies"
缺點： "As mentioned above, more new selections of movies. Better taste and quality of food, please."
優點： "Very friendly and caring"
缺點： "i can not think of anything. Great crew Great experience"
優點： "Everything was good but we were not able to select seats on the leg from Tokyo to Nagoya until arrive at check in and by that time all seats assigned and we could not be seated together and had to have middle seats. ANA needs to work this out..."
缺點： "The sound for the entertain in seat 26G never worked....unsatisfactory for such a new aircraft “Dreamliner”, make it a dream."
優點： "Crew were super attentive. Friendly and helpful. Food was decent. Nice change from standard fare."
缺點： "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."
缺點： "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
優點： "Great experience overall."
缺點： "It was a short hopper so didn't mind much. I actually slept on this plane."
優點： "The whole process from boarding to exit was perfect. The seats, the food the service was great"
缺點： "The movie selection is somewhat weak"
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： "Everything about this airline made my flight pleasant. The staff were polite and accommodating"
優點： "On time. Nice 787 Dreamliner. Very comfortable flight."
優點： "Ground staff and in-flight crew were excellent. The food was very good. The business class seat was comfortable."
缺點： "Got flagged for secondary screening prior to boarding, although it probably wasn't ANA's decision. Video quality of the In-flight entertainment wasn't that great. The AC power plug could have been in a better spot. My power adapter would not fit."
優點： "The crew were helpful, attentive and nice. There were vacant seats so i was able to change to a more comfortable seat."
缺點： "The food was horrible. The selections for movies is quite limited."

優點： "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"
缺點： "We got lie flat cubicle seats on the way out but just tilt seats on the return, both on new 787's. After a 11 hour flight in lie flat cubicles and connecting to a standard recline BC seat is a bit painful."
優點： "Overall it was a great experience. I enjoyed the food, the flight attendants were very nice, and I enjoyed the amenities as well."
缺點： "The flight back was amazing. The trip from Chicago to PHILIPPINES was good as well, though the plane was real small on the way to Manila."

優點： "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."
缺點： "Not enough space to put my luggages"
優點： "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."

優點： "Nice space between seats for the economy class."
缺點： "The entertainment center (sound) did not work in my son's seat."
優點： "ANA is one of our favorite airlines. Consistently great service, if not occasionally a little too 'rule centric'... but it's Japan, and that's why it's so nice and clean and everything works perfectly... :)"
優點： "Food, comfort, service. Good comfort for an economy ticket. No complaints. Movies worked great, blankets and pillows provided. I thought good leg room, but I am only 5’4”. But I still get crowded on domestic flights—seems the seats get smaller and closer together on short flights every year. ANA was good service to Japan. Business class and first class looked awesome. Maybe someday."
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."
