Excellent service. Very attentive flight attendants.
Would like more options for movies
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.
Like Japan Airiline food good flight attendants the best take good care of customer
cramped seating, no entertainment, no meal despite the website ensuring it. The baggage crew dented my hard shell bag.
plane air was too hot with mask on hard to breath with mask!!!
優點： "Economy was surprisingly comfortable. Boarding and deplaning were very quick."
缺點： "Not a ton of movies to choose from. Enough, but less than most domestic US flights."
缺點： "The flight was fantastic. It was a long flight but the flight attendants took excellent care to keep us comfortable."
優點： "Crew was professional and friendly"
缺點： "Continuous improvement"
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!!!"
優點： "JAL operates with incredible efficiency."
優點： "The crews were very kind and helpful."
優點： "I really got a good deal on my trip's cost, and for the price, all the comforts of a top-quality airline were there. I especially appreciate how helpful and friendly the airline staff were."
缺點： "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."
優點： "The EMIRATES flight was nice. Japan airlines has good leg room."
缺點： "Air on the plane was stuffy"
優點： "Privacy of window side seat"
缺點： "The food and drinks were sub-par"
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： "Staff and service good"
缺點： "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"
優點： "Good service. Flight went off without a problem."
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： "good flight"
缺點： "food is ok"
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： "The flight attendants were amazing, caring and helpful."
優點： "Service is great."
缺點： "Flight was an hour late. Boarded late. Took off late. Delayed 10 minutes at arrival gate with seat belt sign on."

優點： "The flight attendance we're awesome"
缺點： "Nothing. This was a great flight."
優點： "The Japanese crews were excellent on board."
缺點： "I didn't like the way the personnel at the check in counter in Dallas. Hannah didn't seem too helpful. I don't know if she was new but she seemed reluctant to help me when I couldn't find my luggage tags. I told her I wanted a kid's meal for my son but she didn't process the request. He did not get a child meal."
優點： "JAL doesn't disappoint!"
優點： "Extremely kind staff, spacious seating, good food and great entertainment. You can only make an 11 hour flight so good but they did it"
缺點： "11 hour flight! Can't do much about that"
優點： "The majority of the crew had facials that made me feel like I shouldn't talk to them. The food wasn't the best but that was expected. There was movies and shows that kept me entertained for a while. Seats are normal couldn't walk or get up often because of turbulence."
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： "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
缺點： "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"
優點： "cost performance"
缺點： "non-flat seat"
優點： "All was fine"
優點： "Entertainment was excellent"
缺點： "I'm an entertainer, very well respected in Hawaii, Japan and the world. and has always traveled JAL. I travel with my guitar and has never had a problem carrying it on board. The staff will usually come a get it and put it in the closet if it didn't fit in the overhead. But I guess recently rules change, and was told I would have to check it in because the closet space is used only for staff and business people. Was told that the 737 was to small for my guitar won't fit overhead. I have taken 737's all my life with Aloha Airlines and told them that my guitar would fit. That gentleman was a JERK! and was'nt very helpful, and told me I couldn't take it on board and I would have to take it to the package store and have them box it up. That spoiled my whole vacation."
優點： "More leg room in Japan airlines. I decided to use JAL as much as possible. Stewardess are all nice and very attentive."
缺點： "Food is ok, but way so much better compared to the other airlines. The chair is not as comfortable (hard to sit) , but more leg room is a good advantage."
缺點： "I ordered Hindu vegeterian meal while coming to Chicago on phone with Japan Airline I got Asian veg food"
缺點： "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
缺點： "I wish there were options in the food they serve."

優點： "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
缺點： "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
優點： "Enjoyed the ANA service so much. The crew was so attentive and helpful. The floor was really wet under our seat and they got newspapers and blankets to keep our stuff dry and checked in on us several times. We felt very well taken care of. Enjoyed the documentaries on Japan and Okinawa!"
缺點： "We didn't know the meal schedule. We thought the half a sandwich at dinner time was dinner, but then a full meal came out a couple hours later. :) Nice surprise though!"
優點： "ANA crew is very hospitable."
優點： "free movies"
缺點： "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."
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： "Everything flight crew exceptionally nice food and snacks were great flight was smooth other airlines should take a cue from ana even use chilled silverware when serving food not plastic ware like the other airlines no attitudes just awesome service just like it should be ."

優點： "Always happy to fly ANA but wish I cold fly direct from Vancouver to Okinawa. and return. Kansai? I fly there three time a year."
優點： "I appreciated the fact that mostly everyone is bilingual there. It helped tremendously because I don't know Japanese."
優點： "My Marine son and I traveled ANA from Okinawa to Hiroshima. We had to be bussed out to our plane but it was so worth it because we were on a Star Wars plane."
缺點： "My son and I had made separate reservations and they lost his. however he was able to get on the flight and they sat us together."
優點： "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
缺點： "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
缺點： "We kept delaying our flight half hour to 45 minutes at a time from 5 o'clock in the evening to one in the morning and then they canceled the flight at one in the morning after sitting there all day"

優點： "The ground staff and air crew were pleasant and professional."
缺點： "The staff could have better managed the stowage of large carry-on luggage, which slowed boarding and threatened passenger safety.."
優點： "The professional courtesy and efficient execution of the crew during the entire flight."
缺點： "Boarding, kind of a controlled chaos when it started. People just line up and go! But it worked!"
優點： "Nothing stands out after shelling out over $300.oo US dollars for 3 bags. Our bags were first off the carousel"
缺點： "We had no prior notification of the fees, we assumed we had to pay for baggage but it cost more than the ticket. We upgraded to the "comfort seats" very narrow, in front with no legroom because of the bulkhead, We couldn't load first so our carry on we're behind us, a pain when getting off the plane."
缺點： "A check in was over crowded , it's take almost 50 minutes . The check in counter persons have bad attitude with passenger . The service in- flight is horrible"
優點： "find no where to check-in online, and do know how much weight i can carry"
優點： "No online check in to expedite the process. Everyone had to wait in line for manual check in, which resulted in at least 30+min time lost which made it tight for boarding."
缺點： "Online check in please."
優點： "Not having to change airports in Sao Paulo!"
缺點： "flight operated by Passaredo. Prop plane, waiting area was very basic. At checkin the rep did not want to add my AA Frequent flier number to my reservation. The flight has TAM (oneworld) flight number so I wanted to get credit but was unsuccessful."
優點： "Flora the flight attendant. Very professional.."
缺點： "They cancelled the flight without any reason and you sent an email the night before departure and as I was in Africa I couldn't read it. So I had to discovered it by other tourists and then I had to book another flight at a higher rate because of the time and I had to cancel a couple of activities already paid to solve all of this and they offer to reimburse just the cost of the flight in 60 days. Horrible experience"
優點： "Outbout flight was good and on time the return leg on 26/10/15 was delaayed for almost 5 hours and on landing at ORT international airport we were kept on tarmac inside the plane for over 20 minutes due to lack of buses to take the passengers to the arrival terminal"
缺點： "The available snack was crisp and water for sale Overall and appalling way of doing business and diregard to passengers.."
