Airline reviews

Pros: "It was great..."
Cons: "Lavatories on domestic flights in Japan are tiny. Like, super duper tiny."

Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
Cons: "Not one thing."

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew."

Pros: "3 hour flight and had a meal Several drinks and crew was very attentive Also seats were very comfortable and spaced well"
Cons: "Nothing really other then maybe a better selection of movies but I am not picky Great flight"

Pros: "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."
Cons: "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."

Pros: "Food was amazing and stewardess courtesy to passengers."

Pros: "Crew very helpful. Seat roomy."

Cons: "Food was awful. Huge hassle having to clear immigration pick up bags and check in again in Shanghai."

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "It’s 14h flight. I wanted more water. I had to keep asking but the size was too small... I didn’t want orange or apple juice...."

Pros: "Seats, movies, comfort"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"

Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice. Food was okay, while the legroom was good too."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but the email notification from JL was lacking the most important detail... The new take off time! It was 70 minutes later than advertised, but then delayed by another five minutes on top after a late take off."

Cons: "Missed flight due to medical emergency"

Pros: "People were friendly - from check in right through to disembarkment."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The food and movies"
Cons: "The bitchass mofo next to me who took up two seats and STILL kept touchin my feet. Fuckin weirdo man. JA is a good airline, but clowns like that guy ruin the whole flight."

Cons: "Cancelled flight"

Cons: "food from manila to japan was excellent,food japan to vancouver was not...could only eat half of it"

Cons: "The crew kept accidentally bumping my chair and never apologized"

Pros: "nice flight."

Pros: "JAL is great!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked everything with JAL. Seats are comfortable, good food, excellent service."

Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."

Pros: "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 international travels."
Cons: "The flight was extremely late to leave and I almost missed my connecting flight in Osaka"

Pros: "No major disasters, comfortable seats, on time."

Pros: "Seat spacing good for economy food was good"
Cons: "Movie Selection"

Pros: "Quick local Flight. Left and arrived on time."

Pros: "No wait time at check in, boarding on time, friendly crew, clean plane, landing on time"
Cons: "No online check in"

Pros: "Good service and very clean plane."
Cons: "After having an enjoyable experience on the first Japan Air flight, the second flight from Narita to Manila was late to board & leave, the food was not nearly as appealing and the flight seats were noticeably less comfortable and less roomy than the first flight."

Pros: "Great meal compared to other local airlines. Comfortable."

Pros: "The service is excellent and the quality of food is much better than most international airlines. Haven't used Japan Airlines in years but their service has been exceptionally consistent."
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system and the not-so-clean restrooms (perhaps due to a full flight or that passengers are just plain dirty)."

Pros: "Still, love JAL's customer service from the cabin crew. The flight attendants are always friendly, courteous and professional. They do a great job of meeting and exceeding passengers expectations"
Cons: "The cabin area was extremely warm; at one point, I had to take out the safety card and fan myself. There was no explanation why the approximately 5-hour flight was uncomfortably warm. During the flight, I woke up from a sound sleep because of the heat in the cabin."

Pros: "As usual A1 service all the way!"

Pros: "JAL doesn't disappoint!"

Cons: "Seat was too hard"

Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Flight crew was very professional and courteous. The food was excellent! It was like eating at an awesome Japanese restaurant! There were toothbrush kits w/small tubes of toothpaste in the bathrooms, which was a nice touch. Bathrooms were very clean. Entertainment was very good and had many choices. Would love to fly them again any chance I get! Probably the best flight experience I've ever had."

Pros: "Everyone on the flight was very nice and helpful. Food was excellent! There were a lot of choices of movies to watch. It was probably the best flight experience I've ever had and I travel overseas quite a lot. If I ever get the chance to fly them again, I will. Great service and outstanding experience."

Pros: "The flights were generally ok. Flying coach.."
Cons: "My round trip had a total of 5 legs.. I had to get my luggage at every stop. I only had one destination so I was not expecting to get my luggage at every stop."

Pros: "Wonderful flight...so great getting premium economy...so comfortable...crew and food were great....one of the best long flights ever!"

Pros: "Premium Economy had good seating space and leg room."
Cons: "No wifi access"

Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"

Cons: "Some turbulence awoke us midway through the overnight flight."

Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"

Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."

Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "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."

Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."

Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "I wish there were options in the food they serve."

Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"
Cons: "Chair is way too hard."

Cons: "The entertainment"

Pros: "The fight had a lot of open seats as I had a whole row to myself! Also the crew was kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it didn’t interfere with my travel plans."

Pros: "These ladies work hard on this plane. They were checking on you and serving food or drink every hour. Always polite and accommodating. The seats are very comfortable and roomy. Great selection of entertainment. I would highly recommend."

Pros: "I liked the movies , comfortable seats, food was great!!!"
Cons: "If we had free WiFi"

Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."

Pros: "Great crew. I love Lufthansa. I just wish there was more room for my legs."
Cons: "More leg room!"

Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "I’m not sure how I feel about the embarking and disembarking in the “presidential” style. (the use of the stairs outside of the planes, and the shuttle rides)."

Pros: "n"
Cons: "n"

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."

Pros: "Really good food and personal service. Made me feel like I was in a restaurant."
Cons: "I tried to get onto an earlier flight for my transfer. They were not accommodating. Next time I'll consider a flexible fare."

Cons: "I was called the night before saying our flight was overbooked will you change flights for 300.00 dollars each. We needed to get home so we turned their offer down. The day of the flight our connection flight was delayed we were told someone would escort several of the passengers from Lufthansa to the connection with United no one was there. Several of us ran to where the flight gate was but the plane already left. It turns out other people were also called and turned down United’s offer. So the question is since our flight was purposely overbooked did United take advantage of our situation and just leave and cause all of us great pain and duress with no compensation for all of our inconvenience."

Pros: "The seats were the most comfortable seat ive sat in on a plane in a very lng time"

Pros: "Diner"
Cons: "Was told that an upgrade to premium economy entitled us to lounge privileges. Were told by attendants that we had to pay an extra $35. each. We had $6.30 subs from potbelly."

Pros: "Good movie and tv selection, okay food and generous drinks. Attentive staff."

Cons: "Not entertainment at all"

Cons: "Business class with normal seats and empty seat in the middle is not the same."

Pros: "A regular predictable LH flightqq"

Pros: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"

Pros: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"

Pros: "Worst food ever. Stewardess could not figure out where my seat was . Seemed unfamiliar with the plane."

Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."

Pros: "Great pilots and crew."
Cons: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."

Pros: "The staff is on point classy folks the stewardess, are very nice and and prompt."
Cons: "The food is terrible extremely bland and no flavor. Needs to maybe be revamped"

Pros: "overall experience is great"
Cons: "seats would have better"

Cons: "My bag no arrived"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Cons: "Bus shuttle to plane"

Cons: "I was charged for my bags which it said on line bags were free . Seats didn't recline . We were charged for refreshments. This airline had nothing that I should write about ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fraud United and Lufthansa"

Pros: "The food and service was good. Check-in was smooth."
Cons: "The seats were too cramped. The headphone jack only output sound to one ear (tested with two headphones, so the problem is in the seat entertainment unit, not in the headphone)"

Pros: "We checked in online into row 12 without any error messages about the fact that kids cannot sit there. When we arrived at the airport we were given different e.seats and we could not sit together with our kids."
Cons: "No food, mixed up seating, no entertainment"

Pros: "Service and comfort"

Pros: "Everything was wonderful! Lufthansa is spot on from boarding, to in flight service to the moment you leave. They are helpful, friendly, fun and a wonderful crew where I know I'm in good hands!"

Pros: "free upgrade to business class :)"

Pros: "Top notch in-flight entertainment. Chicken meal was not bad. Friendly crew"
Cons: "These flights in and out of Newark have the tightest leg room I've been on. I feel bad for tall passengers. The boarding gate from Düsseldorf was way too crowded."

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Little less order when boarding but it was okay. Poor quality food, processed food."

Pros: "Overall a pretty good flight."
Cons: "The in-flight wasn't working, so no movies on a nine hour flight."

Pros: "Service and entertainment were great. The food was somewhat better than most airlines with free beer and wine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on departure by 8 hours. This caused us to cancel and rearrange hotels. The flight back had to make an emergency medical stop for 2 hours but this was not the fault of the airline and is understandable.."

Pros: "I love Lufthansa: flight attendants so attentive, Complimentary services that other airlines charge for. Attentive staff...and I flew economy."
Cons: "Wel"

Pros: "Professional airlines. one of the best and AWESOME FOOD for an airlines. Did i mention i love Lufthansa??"
Cons: "nothing the airline can do about but too many crying kids on the plane."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive, food was delicious and served on time"

Pros: "Initially things were smooth. Boarding was on time."
Cons: "But then they deboarded the plane and everything went south fast. They didn't tell us what was happening or where to go or what to do. Instead we were directed to different service centers. We were told conflicting things. Sometimes they told us to exit the airport through passport control, but without any information on what to do next. They reopened the terminal but then redirected us to a service center. That center was overloaded and we ended up waiting in line for service/information for the entire day. Once I was near the service center they dissipated the line. They told us there was another service center in a different part of the airport and that this one we have waited for was closing. We went there and it was also closed instead they had beds without blankets or pillows limit the halls. Alia we were in line for hours before they offered any water or food. Food was really late. Information was the problem here. We were not told what we should do except to check with the service center. Eventually a few of us tried to get through passport control and check the service center out front. This worked much better. I was able to get a hotel and a standby ticket. That flight went much better but getting that far was a mess."

Pros: "Smooth and safe"
Cons: "Landed or parked in the maintenance section of the field; therefore we had to take a shuttle bus to a building where we board lite rail to our terminals. It was a distance away; I didn't like that at all. Expecially since we arrived late due to bad weather at Dallas metro."

Pros: "The ease and non-confusion of the boarding process"
Cons: "There wasn't much entertainment options on this flight"

Cons: "delay on boarding time-problems with the aircraft"

Pros: "The flight was on-time!"
Cons: "The food was mediocre."

Cons: "Boarding was a complete mess. The flight was delayed by 2.45 hous leaving airport."

Pros: "Crew of Lufthansa is great. I am truly appreciative of their friendliness"
Cons: "It was 747-8 plane and I was in the middle of side seating. Maybe because it was the second leg of the journey, but i just felt I was cramped..I am 5'8 and 153 pounds! No fault of the crew though! Just the nature of the equipment. The previous leg from Delhi was on A-300 (double decker) and felt to have more space. If economy premium were a little more affordable, it would have been preferred"

Cons: "No leg room for a long 4 hour flight!"

Pros: "The flight was on time, staff attentive and made frequent rounds. The food was good and entertainment with a fair selection of options."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the day of my travel Lufthansa had a ongoing strike at the Frankfurt airport. The Lufthansa terminal was closed, luckily I was one of the few to get the bus shuttle. Once I arrived at the correct terminal the check in process and boarding was a pleasure, much friendly and competent staff to assist"
