comfortable seat & short lay over
Too many issues with my CPAC machine. Trying checkin online.
What I like is the fact that when my kid got a toy after the take off. It really was brightened her day. Maybe minimize the decline position in economy class. Although I think the space is bigger than most other airlines.
The issues not caused by JAL but Americans airlines(AA). Since the ticket was purchased through AA we where froce by AA to use there baggage rules which are very restricted when you think of AA think Spirit Airlines. AA add $400 of baggage fee to ticket that would been free if we used the baggage rules of JAL. JAL siad they where froced by AA to collect the fee that was charged to AA.
Never even got on the plane . Kayak and Japan airline poor customer service . Had boarding issues due to a layover restriction in Japan. Was notified less the 24hrs prior to departure time … worst worst
cramped seating, no entertainment, no meal despite the website ensuring it. The baggage crew dented my hard shell bag.
Super, long line at check-in. Once they opened up the first class window for everybody, things moved somewhat faster. Flight was still delayed by one hour. Flight itself was smooth. Food was good for the first meal and mediocre for the second. JAL flight attendants could speak better English.
優點： "crew was amazing"
缺點： "nothing. amazing flight"
缺點： "Menu options, movies"
缺點： "Needs more variety of movies"
優點： "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."
缺點： "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
優點： "Crew was attentive and food was great. Japan air was a much better buy than any American company. I will look for Japan air for any flights I take in the future."

優點： "Great airline, roomy seats and they don't nickle and dime you like other airlines."
優點： "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."

缺點： "A Japan Airlines employee escorted me every step of the way to ensure that I made my connecting flight from Tokyo to San Diego because I only had an hour and ten minute layover and this can be challenging when you’re in a foreign country. I cannot thank Japan Airlines enough for how easy they made traveling and how comfortable they made me feel. I Highly recommend flying Japan Airlines for your travels."
優點： "The crew, the flight, the pilot to cabin communications, the food, USB hookup, and the movie selection was amazing. I am so happy that I flew Japan Airlines on my return trip. I would highly recommend them for your travels."
缺點： "My original flight was late and pushed my entire schedule back. I had 15 minutes to deplane and get to my connecting flight. This caused a lot of stress on me however, the Japan airlones Crew escorted me (we ran as fast as we could) to my next flight so that I wouldn’t miss it. I boarded with 1 minute to spare which is way too close for my comfort."
優點： "The Crew"

優點： "I fly with JAL business class and it was the best business class I have ever experience. The crew was amazingly helpful and polite."

優點： "Service was polite and efficient"
缺點： "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."

優點： "Quality of the planes"
缺點： "Nothing as far as human services. Thai used to be and I have flown Thai since i was a teenager, many many times. I used to every time get excited to fly with Thai. this time i had two Thai connections between Tokyo - Bankgkok and Bangkok-Delhi, both times my two young minor children were automatically seated away from me and each other also during checkin process. it took a lot of time and convincing the agent to get my own children seated with me on long international flights! Food service was worse than expect for name of Thai airways!"

優點： "Good service."
缺點： "Flight was congested."
優點： "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
缺點： "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."
優點： "Enjoyed the flight very much!"
缺點： "Too much scrutiny for my request for a double vodka screwdriver"
缺點： "There was no information about connecting flights before landing."
I booked this through Travelgenio and requested a cancellation due to COVID related impact. Their customer service was absolutely terrible and they informed me after the flight had departed that they could not cancel my ticket. Worst experience, will never use them again. Strongly reconsidering using Kayak in future given how poor the travelgenio experience has been.
優點： "This flight left nearly an hour late, which at 1 AM really hurts. The crew were ok, but the flight seemed understaffed, and our service in premium economy was pretty ordinary."
缺點： "Total gong show getting to our connecting flight in HK, but Cathay Pacific got us there with only seconds to spare."
缺點： "耳機聲音轉小，但是機內廣播超大聲，透過耳機都覺得耳朵快爆掉，又不能調整，代表機內廣播音量和電影音量設定不對。 派餐太慢，我們水果餐先取得，但跳過我們沒有給飲料。 入境單要2張(我和同伴)，只給1張，說晚點給，但是後面座位的人卻有取得，又一直沒有送來，再要求後，才告知已經派送完畢，要我們落地再寫。"
優點： "Good crew. Great pilots."
缺點： "Food. Seat comfort."
優點： "Service, food, excellent. Most of all, the new entertainment system & window in bathroom!"
缺點： "1. Business class crew stomped around the cabin, making it noisy, and woke me up constantly. 2. Gallery is very loud and badly situated in business class. 3. Chair itself is old & although it’s lie-flat, makes a very uncomfortable night’s sleep."
缺點： "Arriving on time"

缺點： "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."

缺點： "Seats are not exactly comfortable for a long flight"
缺點： "去程和回程的機內椅下，餐枱十分污穢，似乎沒有人做清潔，厠所殘舊，污糟，衛生程度比廉航差! 回程在墨爾本check in 時要自助都沒有問題，但詢問地勤問題時十分不友善! 這次國泰給我的印象完全難以想像的差!"
優點： "Delayed. Late notification of delay. No text notification of delay."
優點： "Efficiency and on time takeoffs."
缺點： "FILTHY bathrooms, sinks wouldn’t drain, floors weren’t kept mopped. Truly disgusting."

優點： "Overall service"
缺點： "Nothing dpecific"
優點： "Staff were nice. Lots of legroom"
缺點： "The food was pathetic. Bland and smelled funny. Chaos at luggage retrieval. For some reason they were pulling bags off the conveyor belt, even before it was full. So had to run back and forth to check."
缺點： "I d have liked if they had served refreshments/drinks immediately after boarding. Although I had dinner, the flight is like 1AM so a light snack would be appreciated. toilet cleanliness was an issue...the toilets were out of toilet paper."
優點： "Food is good"
優點： "Very efficient service and prompt arrivals unlike United Airlines.aircraft was modern and equipment was generally well maintained."
缺點： "What other snack options available other than Ramen Noodles. Maybe a low carb option is needed. There are some noodles made from soy products and these will be low carbohydrate. Seats in economy are ok for short people. All airlines should designate an infant seating area close to toilets. This way all infants will be restricted to these seats and the noise pollution in the aircraft is restricted to a small section of the ship.these seats can be specially configured to either seat a no rmal adult or a fast attachments for a baby carrier."
優點： "Boarding was smooth, attendants were great, entertainment had lots of options"
缺點： "They only had this tasteless shrimp slop leftover by the time they got to me for dinner. I didn't eat it and asked for a snack after and was refused. Other than being hungry it was great. The next meal was fine also."
缺點： "Flight delay was not announce until boarding time. Such chaos!! at 1:00 AM. Rescheduled the next 24hrs. I was lucky to live within one hour of the airport. Next day, after boarded the plane, had to sit inside plane for 2 1/2 hours until the plane takes off. It was not a good experienced, even though they gave us a voucher for 75.$"
優點： "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
缺點： "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."
優點： "attentive and courteous crew members Landed more than an hour early extremely smooth landing toilets were clean till the end though it was a 15 hr flight"
缺點： "smaller flights"
優點： "Great service from flight attendants."
優點： "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
優點： "Checkin was a breeze, the flight attendants were great, food was good, seats were comfortable, good selection of movies. What more can you ask for"
優點： "The crew are very nice. They maintain the toilet area clean and with paper supplies. I love the availability of having a hot noodle soup in between meals."
缺點： "No slippers, toothbrush & toothpaste for economy passengers. Some airlines will give this automatic due to long hours trip."
缺點： "unable to move around, seat was stiff, stuffy in the rear of the plane,"
優點： "service was excellent"
缺點： "boarding took very long."
優點： "My experience with Cathay has been great the last 3 years always a smooth flight to La and to Hong Kong...Great service"
缺點： "The only thing I did not like is my experience with vayama thru kayak I had an issue with changing flight times and delayed confirmation upon booking"
優點： "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
缺點： "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
優點： "Same as above"
缺點： "Same as above"
優點： "The crew is always polite and professional"
缺點： "I can't eat airplane food that is always Asian flavored....sometimes I just want a sandwich."
缺點： "Should have more Indian movies on flight."
優點： "Airline staff so helpful and nice, sets had loads of space, I was seated at the back of the plane when they ran out of meals before our row, I said it's fine I'll just have bread rolls but she got me their staff meals yum, air hostess was so lovely"
缺點： "I had a cumulative 10 hours of delays on this trip and missed important appointments because of this"
缺點： "6 and a half hours delayed. Poor communications from the airline about the delay and when the flight would leave. Some of the times given were clearly unrealistic as equipment was still in-route to DFW at departure time"
優點： "The food and service"
