Best leg room on their 777 we have experienced in Economy across the Pacific. A big plus since I am 6'1". The food was abominable on flights originating from Japan. Mainly mystery dishes.
They gave me the seat next to a very large person!!!
Left late and arrived late other than that it was good
Short flight with minimal services. I have no complaints. The staff were very, very good.
They are all good,but can’t compare with Japanese airlines
The number of flights available from the west coast US to southeast Asia has been severely reduced to the covid pandemic so flyers do not have all the options as in the past. So I reluctantly flew on JAL despite all the negative reviews [Spoiler: the reviews were correct]. Although I was pleased with the efficiency of the flight, the sincerity of the crew, and the high quality meals, the substandard business class accommodations made the whole flight uncomfortable. The chair was small, cramped, lumpy, and offered little privacy. It by no means compares to business class on China Eastern or Singapore Airlines -- the groups I usually fly. JAL will need to significantly upgrade business class if I consider this flight in the future.
優點： "I volunteered when flight attendant asked if I would help in exit row responsibility."
缺點： "I got SSSS on my boarding pass and was subjected to not one but TWO thorough searches at NRT and DFW!!! It was traumatic for me and when an explosives man came up, I was totally upset!!! Please explain what I did in purchasing the ticket that flagged me for this horrible search!!!"

缺點： "I didn't like the way the personnel at the check in counter in Dallas. Hannah didn't seem too helpful.

He did not get a child meal."

優點： "Food & entertainment"

優點： "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."

OTHER AIRLINES WOULD CHANGE YOUR FLIGHT FOR A FEE BUT ANA DID NOT!!!!!!!!!
The flight was a little bumpy because of rain as explained by crew. Food:Some passengers were asked choose their preferred meal but were later on asked to take the other one because of limited quantity
優點： "Crew service is good!"
缺點： "The seat is really cramp and tight!!"
缺點： "This was a much more pleasant flight than I had from DC to Tokyo back on Jan 15"

優點： "Great service!"
缺點： "More comfortable seats and headphone jacks on the end of the arm rest (I kept knocking mine out when I moved in my seat)."
缺點： "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"
優點： "I had 3 seats to myself, and I was able to curl up and get a good 2 hours sleep without being disturbed. Thank you ANA. Crew was lovely and friendly."
缺點： "Well they could have given me a free upgrade but I can live with a row to myself, kidding. When the ticket counter opens the agents stand in front of the podiums and bow and say a greeting (I think it was in Japanese). They need to get their timing better. So not much."
缺點： "We did not make this flight and had to take the train instead"
優點： "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
缺點： "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
優點： "Outstanding service as always - ANA rocks!"
缺點： "Too many (redundant) service announcements. Suggest simplifying and keeping them short and less repetitive to avoid inconvenience, esp while enjoying entertainment."
優點： "Crews are very helpful and always have a smile in their face. Comfortable seats and entertainment system are very nice. The only thing that makes us not satisfied was the food, for 10 hours flight there’s only 1 main dish...Totally I like their service."

缺點： "Entertainment - didn't have to many movies I liked. Food was ok."
優點： "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
缺點： "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."

優點： "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."

優點： "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
缺點： "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."

缺點： "No free WiFi"

優點： "Service and food were great."
缺點： "That I was listed as standby when I went to check in; I eventually got my ticket and my preferred seat selection."

優點： "nice.crew. actually able to book exit row.seat online. pre-check-in is great all you do at the airport is drop the bags .no long queues."

優點： "Pleasant stewardesses"
缺點： "Expensive lunches, no entertainment unless you pay"
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."

缺點： "The delay before taking off."
優點： "The staff are friendly and helpful. The seat is very comfy"
優點： "They had good movies and music of my choice."
缺點： "One flight attendant out of all others showed arrogant behaviors and facial expression. I was sort of disappointed because I chose ANA because of a reputation of their service and modesty embedded in the Japanese culture but not this time. I should have written down her name."
優點： "The food were good and just enough for the inflight need"
缺點： "The time to get to the next flight is so tight! I wish there's a 30 minutes more so I don't have to rush and be the last one to get in the plane."

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 attendant were so hospital..The flight is so smooth even when we landed it was a very good experience."
缺點： "United did not allocate to code share flight on correct date. I was rufused to be on the board at the ticket counter and ANA code share company ask to call to united 1-800 #. I missed the flight and ended up buying one way ticket from other air line with my own expense."
優點： "Good service."
缺點： "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."
優點： "Ana is the best"
優點： "Great flight. Plenty of leg room in economy section. Attendants polite, helpful and made you feel like you their valued customer. Would fly ANA again when traveling their routes."
