Excellent except for food
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.

The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"

缺點： "I have purchased Japan Airline to travel but unexpectedly I had to deal with American Air for half of my flight. God help them please. It was hell from start to finish. Japan Air, I feel sorry for you that your alliance with American Air."
優點： "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
缺點： "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."

優點： "Finally arriving"
缺點： "AA waited 4-hours to cancel the flight with 24-hours to the next flight.. Breakfast voucher didn't cover a third of the cheapest breakfast in the hotel where I was sent for the night. Even the flight the next day, sunny, was delayed."
優點： "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
缺點： "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
優點： "My son and I enjoyed the courteous and genuinely friendly service and attention from all flight personnel paid too us to ensure a wonderful experience to and from Japan. From Hawaii JAL manager upon check in concern for my son not feeling well to the attendant realizing we spoke no Japanese to apologize and begin conversing in English, every one was pleasant and professional in desire to please us and make our trip so comfortable."
優點： "Attention given to each passenger by flight crew."
優點： "Great 12hr flight"
缺點： "Loved everything!!"
優點： "The people, let's be honest, the Japanese just have a genuine humble way about them, where they actually derive pleasure from providing quality service. In short, they are better human beings, and having a flight with them taking care of me, is a sort of heaven"
缺點： "Food quality."
優點： "Japan Airlines was a pleasure, from beginning to end & in between. The flight attendants emulate joy in their service to others, they are observant to the clients' needs even before they are asked for help. In a long flight such as this was, it was obvious that they also tend to the comfort of the passengers by ensuring that the restrooms are always clean & presentable. Will fly them again whenever I have the opportunity."
缺點： "Can't say that I have ANY complaints at all!!"
優點： "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
缺點： "Nothing actually"
優點： "Very nice flight attendants. Good meals"
優點： "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
缺點： "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."
They used be great airline but no more.
Malfunctioning plane made us late…annoying
The trip was on time and the service was excellent.
優點： "Everything is perfect."
缺點： "Nothing to complain, simply perfect."
缺點： "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
優點： "The Boarding Emirates at Logan Airport is a nightmare. The staff are unhelpful, and take long time to process Transiting passengers. The Desk is understaffed, and the staff is rude."
缺點： "The flight has enough crew on board, but the staff usually stand together in the galley and keep gossiping, instead of going around once in a while and check on passengers. It's a long flight and crews change but the passengers don't."
優點： "服務員態度很差 服務過程總感覺在趕時間想早點休息詢問個問題也只顧著儘快打發 非常不滿意"
優點： "Crew was amazing."
缺點： "Seats were a little narrow and could use new cushions."

優點： "cheuk in 快！吾使等太耐！"
優點： "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
缺點： "後面有保留組員座位 建議可圍起來 以免不停的乘客來坐 一開始可阻止到後來惡意人得逞 很不公平 我們全程坐自己位置看了很厭惡 既然不聽勸阻 那建議乾脆禁制"
缺點： "選至前面座位 但組員把兩大一小特別調到中間四位位置 左邊也有兩個壞小孩 全程吵鬧不堪負荷 分散開就算了但集中附近乘客情何以堪"
優點： "I always love traveli ng eith Emirates. Great service. They are punctual. Good entertainment system. Comfortable flights and service overall."

優點： "Pleasantly surprised by the meals. The crew were professional, attentive, and friendly. The seat I chose had plenty of leg space and I will select it again the next time I fly with Emirates."
缺點： "The toilet seat covers were finished so I spent a lot of time lining the seat with toilet paper."
優點： "Seats were comfy and as expected perfect seat 79k"
缺點： "Stewards took a while to respond to the buzzer yet I was sat by the quarters Also food wasn’t offered the choice as they had ran out"
優點： "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
缺點： "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
優點： "Everything was perfect"
缺點： "I ordered regular vegetarian meal and they served me Vegan meal! Also my flight from Chicago to Dubai on January 30 they didn’t offer me vegetarian meal coz they said I Didn’t select meal and they said they didn’t have extra Vegetarian meal!"
優點： "The crew & the ground personnel! Very polite, helpful & efficient!"
缺點： "I loved flying by Emirate! But not anymore! Too conjested!! You keep raising the fares but continue taking away the few perks that used to set you aside from other airlines! The food was less than ordinary! Sadly, you have taken away the open buffet between meals. This buffet of fresh fruit, chocolates & healthy bars were welcome & much appreciated! The little pouch with few essential things for travellers was very useful......you've taken take away too! Qatar, Turkish or Itthehad Airlines are beckoning me!"
優點： "Everything was amazing, from check in to deplaning. I’m going to sign up on their frequent flyer program."
優點： "I am pleased to travel and thanks to Emirates."
優點： "The staff were pleasant and the food was passable"
缺點： "The number of children screaming and running up and down the aisles was ridiculous. Since parents can’t be trusted to stop their darlings from raising hell, the flight attendants need to. The poor old guy next to me looked like he might die from exhaustion after this long-haul hell. In other news, rushing us into the bus and then leaving us standing there for 30 minutes is not my idea of a good start to the journey."
優點： "seating availability Food service"
優點： "Food is good"
缺點： "Seat is not comfortable when you lie down on flat position, narrow space, and attendant woke me up for breakfast despite tellingher not to do that at begginig of the trip"

缺點： "Taipei airport was not great and confusing."
優點： "Everything except food"
缺點： "Nothing as such."
缺點： "在葡萄牙跟杜拜的登機時間較晚開放，在機票上寫的最晚登機時間時，實際上還有很多旅客還在排隊等候。 777機上娛樂的電影無法選擇字幕，很多電影因此都無法好好的觀看。"
優點： "Layout of plane is very convenient , bathroom acessable, no crowding in isles. Love the dining cards & choice of meals, and the comfort features ( blankets , pillows , toiletry bag) The entertainment center is also amazing! Perfect for long flights. So many choices & also power usage also great for the passengers on long flights. Also, normally I try not to use the lavatory, they are usually awful, but these make the most of their space, warm water, nice soap,colognes,seat liners."
缺點： "Apparently, operational issues in Athens, no information of why we had to go to an additional security at the gate, including a litmus test, go through our bags again & a light pat down! They also wanted us to board separately, which made my travel partner even more anxious than she already was!"
優點： "I liked the service but the problem is carry on bags"
缺點： "Carry on bags they're taking my small bags I don't like it they did to cargo"
缺點： "上半年前坐同一航班用餐時要求喝bitter lemon汽水，服務員很热情的去找給我們。今次作同样要求，两个航班的服務员皆说沒有"

缺點： "Everything was perfect"
優點： "Rude flight attendants and REALLY BAD FOOD."
優點： "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
缺點： "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."
缺點： "worst crew i have ever encountered in spite of repeatedly calling them they just completely ignored my calls served me wrong food and when i said i needed a veg meal they said they could only serve if it was pre-booked when i showed them my pre-booking details on my cell they agreed to serve me one. Very disinterested crew in serving the guests badly managed from my early, also the pizza slice emitrates serves is a non veg pizza its clearly written on the box preparation may include eggs fish etc.. and they did not have any substitute for the same. Multiple passengers kept on disturbing me and asking me to shift my seat even when i was sleeping and the crew did nothing about it because of this experience i would not choose to fly emirates again"
優點： "Every thing was ok.but not excellent"
缺點： "Specially for getting down from the plane we had to use stairs that is not good specially for senior citizens."

優點： "Fantastic journey no problems at all thanks kayak....."
優點： "Got ticket for a good price."
優點： "The flight was on time, the food was good. Nice selection for onboard entertainment. The plane was very clean."
缺點： "1. The boarding process at Istanbul airport was horrible. No one could speak or understand english. My father was on a wheelchair and he was the last one to be boarded on the plane! There was so much confusion - some people wanted me to go separately from him, others wanted him to walk down the stairs on his own, etc. etc. There were hardly any announcements for people with special needs. Generally they are allowed to board first as they need more time to settle. I could barely find overhead bin space for his stuff. 2. There were several remote controls broken on the plane. A lot of people had to suffer through a non working entertainment screen. 3. One of the hostess was hardly listening to anything I had to say. She seemed to be in so much of a hurry and had a very bad attitude."

缺點： "Everything was great. Got upgraded to first class"
優點： "The flights themselves were fine"
缺點： "However, having a long layover in Istanbul airport was a problem as there are no seats available to sit it for hours. If Turkish Airlines wishes to continue to be a major travel hub they will need to cater to transit passengers."
缺點： "There were some passengers didn't allowed to get on a flight because of over booking. Some of them didn't speek English and didn't understand why thy have to stay in the airport.On the other hand I saw how the officials laughed at him because he tried to fight for the place on the flight by using a foreign language. It is an ugly phenomenon that does not respect people"

優點： "Plane was more comfortable this time. I was able to put seat back a bit to sleep."
缺點： "Food choices were poor. For a long flight, it would be ideal to offer things for people with allergies. As a celiac, I was unable to eat most of what they offered me and there were not a lot of options. This is difficult on such a long flight."
優點： "On time flight. Very good service."
優點： "Food is good; service is good. Boarding times were later than expected and left late but didn't arrive lat. Entertainment options were good"
