As I worried about, the time between my flights was not nearly enough. So, I got stuck in Tokyo during golden week and extra night. That was terrible and difficult.
Seat are large and wide, as expected in premium economy. The shell seat makes reclining non-intrusive to others, it also eats in your own space but I find this a non issue due to the tremendous leg room (42”, even better than all other premium economy that I know of), be careful of the sliding mechanism as I nearly got stuff stuck inside, the seat belt is the airbag type, it also attaches to the shell so when you recline you have to loosen it. The seat itself is hard and the headrest is too high to support my neck, so expect to need lots of pillows to make yourself comfortable. Foot storage is ok and there is a gap to store more things between seats and between the seat and the window for window seats, which I find surprisingly useful. Footrest is too high and makes your legs hang above the legrest (good for them to include that too) so I didn’t use the foot rest. Lunch was supposedly a highlight but I find the sea food rice bland and there isn’t really much seafood to speak of. The small biscuit in the side dish is wet and disgusting. Cold spaghetti as a side dish is also weird. The breakfast served before landing was great, they call it “chewing” salmon and millet short pasta, and perfectly coincides the sunrise which makes for a amazing experience. Attendants picked the trays way too late which makes me unable to go out for a walk as all our tables is full of empty trays. Both meals comes with plentiful choices of beverages and amazingly, metal cutlery. Rice crackers tasted great. Snacks in the economy class gallery have little choices. Japanese style high tech toilets look stylish but for part of the flight, the drainage in one of the sink didn’t work. Also, it seems like there is only 2 bathrooms in the business class cabin so sometimes they come to use our toilets, still largely enough for us though, if business passengers didn’t come 2 bathrooms for the 40 seats premium cabin would be great. In later part of the trip we were flying quite low (33000-35000ft) and is somewhat turbulent, it looked like there is no clouds much above us so I wonder if we could have avoided some turbulence by flying higher. Wi-Fi was slightly expensive unless you have a connecting flight (I do but the wifi is broken in the previous leg), speed was good. I got lounge access even on premium economy, which elevated the experience a LOT. They provided a amenity kit with ear plugs, moisture mask, eye mask, tooth brush and toothpaste which is great. Noise canceling headphones is also provided but the active noise canceling was barely noticeable. Overall the experience is either ok or great, only bad part was the first meal.
My flight was cancel on American , rebook 4 time? Whe to the airport each time to find out flight is canceled again, ridiculous X just ask for a refund
Clean, friendly staff, and delicious food
cramped seating, no entertainment, no meal despite the website ensuring it. The baggage crew dented my hard shell bag.
I would fly this airline again, I would consider one step upgrade from economy for a flight over 5hrs but at 6ft I was still comfortable in economy
You did a great job JAPAN AIRLINES. Looking forward to experience again your utmost service in air!

優點： "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."
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."

優點： "The airplane and all"
缺點： "A little bit in the sakura lounge"
優點： "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."
缺點： "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."

優點： "Very attentive service, very comfortable seats on economy, good food, excellent attention to detail"
優點： "The flight attendants are very friendly and polite. The seats in economy are generous and as comfortable as they could be in economy on a 10 hour flight. The two meals provided were pretty good for food served on an airplane."
缺點： "Nothing really."
優點： "I've been always flying with U.S. airlines this past several years just because transits are easier. I forgot about how friendly and nicer JAL crews are. Their food is much much better. They served us with a cup of Haagen-Dazs icecream for dessert while a Fatboy is normally served by other airlines. I was impressed by how spacious the foot area of their economy seat is. Because I felt quite comfortable, I slept five hours straight during the flight which is phenomenal to me. I will definitely fly with JAL again!"
優點： "The seat was great."
缺點： "Overall, it was a great experience. Boarding is very fast compared to US airlines."
優點： "ANA was awesome as usual."
缺點： "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible. I called 3 times to get headphones and they never came to give me any. The food was dry and we were only fed twice. I’m vegan/vegetarian so there wasn’t any options."
缺點： "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you 3 months ago I had to change. I won’t use kayak again."
缺點： "My experience overall is fantastic"
缺點： "Five delays and three gate changes are not cool"
優點： "Crew was amazing, food was filling & plentiful."
缺點： "Overall no complaints but the landing in Tokyo was a little rough. Pilot seemed to descend quickly which hurt my ears but otherwise, smooth flight."
優點： "Speeding of departure after boarding"
缺點： "Flight delayed again. Flight was delayed due to “preparations “ but the plane was at the gate for 3 hours before boarding. Did not make sense. Flight was warm in the plane."
優點： "ANA is nothing but amazing. Great customer service and pleasant ambiance."
缺點： "Seat padding - seat was a bit firm"
優點： "Seats were comfortable, crew was good"
缺點： "Boarding is done by a bus trip onto the tarmac, then you take the rolling stairs up into the plane. No in flight entertainment of any sort."

缺點： "The food was not enough, we felt so hungry before arriving."
優點： "Very comfortable flights. Exceptional crew on and off the planes. Great food and drink/snack options. Lots of entertainment options as well."

優點： "Excellent legroom. Very polite staff."
缺點： "Buses to plane. Delayed departure. Food not tasty. Limited entertainment options."
優點： "Staff and crew and food!"
缺點： "We could not check in online. This was frustrating and we do not know why?"
缺點： "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"
優點： "Friendly crew... awesome entertainment. Good drinks and food, one of the best traveling experiences I had. Thank you!"
缺點： "Same repeating music"
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： "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
缺點： "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
缺點： "The food was not as good as in my previous flights."
優點： "The airline offer a lot of food on the plane including Hagen Daz ice cream. The service was excellent, flight attendances were polite and always smile. The seat was very comfortable!"
優點： "Don't cheap out on your flights to Japan because this ANA flight from New York/JFK to Haneda was the correct way to go. Japanese-style hospitality, respect and quality of service (which is beyond the heavens) shows from check-in to landing (and even post-landing.) The in-flight meals, inspired by Japanese recipes of the Japanese destination or origin, were finely made - that goes even for Economy Class. When there was a delay that was ultimately out of their control, they made things right with post-landing arrangements. Never take any other country's airline when flying into Japan - always always ALWAYS take ANA whenever you can. (Avoid codeshares, too!!)"
缺點： "There was nothing I disliked."
缺點： "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."
優點： "Flight left on time, service is good and also good entertainment options. Food is a bit so-so frankly but not bad."
缺點： "They take a long long time to let economy class deboard on arrival even after the doors are open. Biz get off first naturally but the staff are sometimes chatting to them for a rather long time."
優點： "The boarding process, on-time departure and in-flight service were all great and it has the on time arrival."
優點： "The service, our seats, overall comfort and cleanliness of the plane."
缺點： "Ordered Fruit Meal. It did not have a variety."
優點： "Ana crew always excelant This round was a little less sweet n outgoing than in used to. But still did there job well."
缺點： "Food as with crew as well as movie selection Yoon seemed a touch below the high standards in used to."
缺點： "Lounge is full and food in lounge not spectacular. Ground crew unfriendly"
優點： "The large windows on the 787 are really a big plus for someone like me who likes to look out the window. To have the added ability to dim the window progressively is just too cool. Even if the sun is bright, you can still look out and enjoy the view. I love this feature of the 787 and am always a little disappointed when I'm back in any other aircraft."
優點： "I missed my flight. The customer service agent was awesome!"
缺點： "Flying United. I missed my flight. The gate was packed with people so I sat literally a quarter mile away. The flight was delayed and I got a text telling me new departure time. I show up for new departure time. Plane left six minutes earlier. First thanks for the bad information. Second thanks for not paging me. Third I don't care when the plane is supposed to leave. Just tell me what time to be at the gate so I can stand around after an international flight. Oh and if a flight attendee to squawk rudely at a paying customer when we do land, why I'd just have to ask myself AGAIN ... why do I fly United?"
優點： "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
缺點： "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."
優點： "Ana is the best"
優點： "I could upgrade my seat from a regular economy seat to a premium economy seat about 24 hours in advance. The flight attendants were generally attentive and thanks to the kindness of my ajacent passenger to my left, I could sometimes go to restrooms."
缺點： "I usually take an aisle seat, but it was not available this time. Furthermore, my ajacent passenger to my right hand side had cold and often coughed and I myseld caught cold from him during this flight...."
優點： "2 inches more legroom in economy than other airlines on that route."
優點： "Nice new plane"
缺點： "Delayed boarding"
優點： "The crew"
缺點： "No food available only drinks"
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： "Rather new plane; tight, hard, uncomfortable seat architecture. I'm 6 feet tall and 160 pounds -- probably about the 'ideal size' for design. Least comfortable long flight I've had in a very long time."
優點： "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
缺點： "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."
優點： "Service and so much free drink."
優點： "Comfortable flight and cabin crew were very good"
