  • Flights to Japan arrive at several aviation hubs. The busiest airports are in Tokyo – Haneda Airport (HND) and Narita International Airport (NRT). The distance from Haneda to central Tokyo is about 14km, while Narita is about 60km from the city centre. If you fly from the UK, you are most likely to land at Narita, but some international flights do land in Haneda. Although further from the city centre, Narita Airport is very well connected to central Tokyo with fast and efficient trains.
  • The two international airports in the centre of the country also handle many of the incoming international flights to Japan. The first is Kansai International Airport (KIX) in Osaka and the second is Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO) in Nagoya.
  • If you would like to fly to one of the islands in Japan, such as Kyushu, you can fly to Fukuoka Airport (FUK) or Okinawa Airport (OKA). However, these flights usually require a stopover in Tokyo.
  • British citizens travelling to Japan do not need a visa to enter the country, and you can stay for up to 90 days with no visa. You may need to present a proof of a return ticket or ticket for onward travel.
  • Japan’s currency is the yen they mainly use cash. You may have trouble paying with a foreign credit or debit card, so it is advisable to exchange some yen prior to travelling to Japan. However, most hotels, large department stores and mid- to high-end restaurants do accept cards.
  • If you are planning to travel to Japan during Sakura season, note that airfares and hotel rates may be higher than usual.

Cons: "Awesome"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, pleasant crew."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "There were movies."
Cons: "too late giving out ear phones, and too many interruptions on the loud speaker....way too long explaining things everyone knows, like how to buckle your seat belt....give me a break."

Cons: "I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!"
Pros: "Korean Air has top notch service from crew members. Very kind and accommodating. They will really go out their way to make you feel comfortable. They also serve food on the short flight which not all airlines do between Korea and Japan. Seats are also comfortable; more leg room than other airlines."

Cons: "I didn't realized we were on a code share flight from Seoul to Hanoi until we got to check in counter and they couldn't issue boarding pass even though it was a through check in for till Hanoi. In our booking itinerary it was printed as Korean air with a small print that said operated by jinair. It wasn't so bad but the hassle of going to another terminal to board and being in a smaller aircraft after a long flight wasn't the best."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and handled the delay as best as they could. The food was good. Cabin temperature was good."

About an hr before boarding time they changed the gate. The plane we were taking was late arriving. Boarding time was pushed back 30 min. Everyone got on pretty quickly but then we sat in the plane, on the tarmac for over 2 hours. Idk if it was an issue with the plane, or the airport or what. I was sleeping so I didn't bother to ask but my mom was listening. She couldn't hear anything on the PA system. It was too fuzzy."
Cons: "Very tight seating"
Pros: "Everything.they all assist you and helped u out to look and store your hand carry-on."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were very nice and they had amazing attitudes--especially on my flight going TO Hawai'i. All the flight attendants had smiles on their faces and they were always ready and willing to assist passengers. Every time they delivered something, they were always smiling; even when passengers asked for more assistance, the flight attendants delivered service with a smile!! Amazing!! This was my first time flying Korean Air, but it will not be my last!! My experience with Korean Air was fantastic!! I will definitely fly Korean Air again!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "I really liked the prices of the tickets for this trip, I saved money over the regular price plane tickets; since I had 2 long layovers in Seoul at Inchoen Airport. I love this airport, it is clean, modern and offers so much amenities for FREE. The best for my second time LONG Lay over. My firtst time was at an airport in Alaska which I completely forgot since it was nearly 30 years ago. The flying experience was totally good from flying from BKK as it was also a good airport. I also liked the services, the crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flights were full and of course I had a seat in seat 32E next to a man who was ofviously either sick or had a bad allergy, he sneezed and sneezed 1/2 of the whole flight when he was awake and slept most of the time so it was difficult for me to get in and out to the rest room. Luckily the people in seats 32F & 32G were kind enough to let me in and out (I got out mostly while the lady in seat 32F was getting out of her seat.) Mostly the other experiences were good overall."

Cons: "Flights delayed"
Pros: "I liked the ample legroom. I liked the food. I liked that the crew periodically offered refreshments. I liked the spacious overhead storage. I liked how far the seats reclined. It doesn't go back as far as first class seats do but better than the economy seats of other airlines/planes. I liked the clean restrooms. I liked the entertainment selection. I especially liked that you can view the external cameras."
Pros: "Everything was great except for the lack of internet"
Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "This was my first trip abroad and Korean Air made it extremely enjoyable! I greatly enjoyed the pillow, blanket, overall hospitality, the continuous offers of food, snacks, and drinks. The planes were very nice and didn't seem over crowded. Ticket and baggage clerks were amazing!"
Cons: "Can't think of one think that I didn't like."
Pros: "Good leg room in most seats in Eco class, friendly service, on time, the three big domestic carriers should model themselves after Korean Airlines and some of the other Asian Biggs, best regards and safe travels ,World traveler,Dave"
Pros: "You need to have wifi"
Cons: "Get wifi"

It was a very comfortable journey. Everything was good and should be maintained

Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."
Pros: "One of several preferred airlines when flying to Asia. Really enjoy their service, and it's wonderful to wake up to many beauties in view!"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Seat needs more padding."
Cons: "Memory foam seats"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and made extra effort to meet special requests from passengers."
Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."
Pros: "Seats are spacious even for economy class."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "I think the food in our flight was not that good.."
Pros: "SQ always the best service"
Pros: "Crew were really lovely and friendly. A bit of spacee on the plane which always helps"
Cons: "Nothing Better than average flight"
Cons: "5 crying babies on a red eye. Don’t know if that can be prevented."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "More tasty snacks throughout the flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seat were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."
Pros: "The economy section of the upper deck of the A380 is great!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Very attentive and super awesome crew."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly attentive staff. Excell ent food and great. Service."
Cons: "Really crowded seats in economy."
Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"
Pros: "Everyone was very attentive and nice. The leg room is decent ."
Cons: "Some of the food didn't taste amazing, would've like maybe a different choice other than salmon or curry pork"
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."
Pros: "Service is always excellent"
Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("
Cons: "leg space"

Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"

Pros: "The people were excellent."
Cons: "I had planned to check an extra piece of luggage, gifts and purchases for church needs. They wanted to charge me $3,655(!!!) for that. Absurd. I had to leave the suitcase behind. I will probably fly on a different airline whenever I go to Russia now."
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"

Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "Loved the crew. Really helpful."
Cons: "1) while boarding you should keep families with kids (at least till 6yrs of age or with disabilities) prior to other people... 2) food was ok ok"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."

Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"

My flight got cancelled several times, I booked my flight through Fly. us, that was throughly KAYAK engine, I regret my decision to do that, because fly. Us has horrible service no communication what do ever, I contacted them, called them several time but no response so far, I called airline they said they will refund to fly.

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew was great"
Pros: "Good entertainment options"

Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous. Every half decent airline out there caters to all classes of passengers. This is an extremely elitist airline. Will definitely try to avoid"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was good but that doesn’t make up for lack of equal treatment of all passengers"
Cons: "They are racist!!!!! Segregation and all!!!!! For my more than 12 hours layover I had to pay for my own hotel!!! Yet other travelers were given free hotel vouchers. As a matter of fact I was kept waiting for nearly half an hour in the middle of the night even though I had been waiting for service ahead of them."

Cons: "Did not like the fact that I was not able to upgrade"

Pros: "I left my kindle reader in the seatback in my flight to Dubai. They found it and returned it to me on my retum doback to Chicago 3 weeks later."
Cons: "Lactose free meal was disgusting."
Cons: "I payed for emirates not fly Dubai which was low budget flight. They charged me for a coffee on the plane... not something I would expect after paying 1400 for my tickets. And no where did it say fly Dubai on my tickets, I would have gone with other alternatives if I knew like Turkish. So last time I use kayak and will not be recommending it as well. This a rating for my whole trip to kathmandu not just Dubai to Kathmandu."
Pros: "I got upgraded to business class"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, good lounges"
Cons: "Way too far to travel on foot in Dubai to change planes"
Cons: "Caused my bags to miss my connection to Mumbai. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "The ways cabin Crew treated customers very well and politely . I feel comfortable."
Cons: "Because you guys treated customers well so they did something over. I flight from Genève airport to Hanoi but i transfer in Dubai. Next to me is a 3 girls. They are keep talking around three hours it’s doesn’t problem if a cabin Crew didn’t give them many bottles of wine. They are drinking for three hours with 9 bottles for 3 girls. They are talked so loudly,drunk and the smell very bad.you know i couldn’t sleep but When They are asking for more wine and the cabin crew also give it for them, i cant belived it!!!. And another guy he want to enjoy with them and asked me to change a sit, i want to sleep and i though it will be better for me. But its not. They are talked more louder. And the problem is when they are getting drunk, the guy back to his sit and take something in his cabin, because he can not control his actions so some stuff from his bag drop down over my head also my body. I was mad but how should i do? Point at his face and tell something bad? Oh i can not. canbin crew just comes and say sorry with me. That is a bad flight that i ever had. You treat customers well but you should have a limit. Im so disappointed about my flight of that day. Thank you"
Pros: "Great service, good meal and outstanding entertainment channels"
Cons: "No critical comments to be offered"
Pros: "food and timing services staff behavior and treats excellent"
Cons: "pls replace drinking water bottles (small) in the place of cups"
Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"
Pros: "Timing, service, comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"
Pros: "Emirates makes it a bit more comfortable than other carriers while there is nothing we can do about the long flight and being in a crowded space."
Cons: "Prepare for more and more security measures."
Pros: "We love Emarites Airlines Service"
Cons: "When boardiing at Dubai entry used one gate with steps this was a minor inconvenience wth the friendly helpful assistance of the flight attendants."
Pros: "The service was the best ever. Business class: The floor plan of seating was smartly laid out with plenty of room for storage. People were not crowded together and the food and drink were 5-stars!"
Cons: "I was treated differently, because, I bought my ticket from Kayak and not directly from Emirates."
Cons: "There was a long bus journey at the airport in Dubai for a flight from Dubai to Lahore. All passengers including myself were very surprised. When the bus stopped neat the air craft for boading, ground staff were seen collecing heavy hand carry luggage from the passengers for putting them in a separate compartment for taking as a cargo, which caused another delay in boading. Old air craft on this route should be replanced. Before boading from Dubai to Lahore, I checked my flight status several times on flight information screen but my flight was not shown on it. Later, I checked on hand touch screen and came to know that gate was B2."
Cons: "I was given boarding card at Karachi airport to go to terminal B at gate 29, and at eleventh hour informed that flight was scheduled at Teeminal A at gate 11. The ground staff was not supportive at all and screamed at me on part of their own error. It was an horrible experience and I might not take Emirates flight."
Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."
Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Cons: "Flying east from Brazil by Emirates to join my friend in Dubai and then not allowed on the aircraft because I missed the gate by 5 mins. The next flight was two days later!!!"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "When it is a very full flight and every seat is needed, the space for passengers is very tight."

The service was top notched. Crew was very nice

Enjoyed business class, food, comfort and the crew was great. It as if I was on a shorter trip because of the comfort. I love Qatar airways 👍👍👍👍👍

Everything was good, but at Philadelphia airport, immigration service was so poor.

Pros: "Loved it"
Cons: "Sit was a little tight"
Cons: "Food options were very similar. And the pre-made meals are hit or miss"
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food could be better and please offer drinks before you serve meals like European air lines."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the onboarding staff was exceptional. Some onboarding staffs were unfriendly."
Cons: "Not allowing a laptop bag unlike Etihad, Emirates and other airlines was a bummer."
Pros: "Every things was great ."
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Cons: "All was well, thanks"
Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant service. Some of the best airline food in the world."
Pros: "Great services"
Cons: "Boarding slow"
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Cons: "Ground crew attitude at checkin,boarding. Only drink choices 2 juice boxes with sad snack. Entertainment screen malfunctioned, poor sound quality cf prior leg. Long rescreening process on connection FROM USA flight. Long wait to deplane to stairs/shuttle bus. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"
Cons: "Seats and legroom too small"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Pros: "Crew welcomes"
Cons: "Bad takeoff and landing"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food is terrible.. why can't they offer sandwiches or bread and butter for people who don't eat Asian food"
Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"
Cons: "Crew left a small amount of champagn in a glass which fell on me when I was asleep. Crew only offered first meal after that did not offer food only when I requested it. Limited gluten/ dairy free options"
Pros: "Everything is good thank you so mach !!!!"
Cons: "Dely to time"
Pros: "Exlent"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices"
Cons: "One of the rudest check-in staff I have ever dealt with"
Pros: "The seats recline far enough tonsleep good Good movie selection Good tv selection although more episodes would be nice"
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"
Pros: "Great flight - and definitely the best airline food we've had in a while"
Pros: "timing"
Cons: "qatar airlines has some old airplanes foods are not good"
Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"
Pros: "Portion of the food"
Cons: "More food for long flight"
Pros: "All was good service, seating comfort and food.."
Cons: "Entertainment content can be more popular in terms of film and television programs"

Cons: "The seats can be a tadd hard after 14 hours.entertainment is good enough although film and other programs could be better served if if the content was more popular .."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Entertainment was good though do expect some random editing and bit blocked out. Seat width was fine had lots of leg room."
Cons: "Food was very average - fine just nothing very interesting. Snacks were available. Seat was hard."
Pros: "seats and airplane are in superior state"
Cons: "the food and boarding"
Pros: "Yes indeed. Polite and listening."
Cons: "Snacks at the beginning, dessert, and inflight duty free."
Pros: "The crew were very good and attentive."
Cons: "Although the film choice was ok, the more recent releases were absent. The cabin was uncomfortable with too much chilly air being circulated. Blanket over the shoulders was the order of the day."
Pros: "They are friendly and able to be approach when we have"
Cons: "The flight was new."
Pros: "Service, food served."
Cons: "Economy class legroom is too tight and not comfortable."
Pros: "I Like The Flight is On Time"
Cons: "Don’t really like because I had booked RB from kayak and they never give any e-ticket number nor booked number and made me cannot check in online and need to wait for almost 30mins just to get the check in, Hope when you have a corporate with another online company please let them provide any e-ticket number or booking reference number, thanks"

Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "Service can b warmer Practically no entertainment, just a common screen"
Pros: "Crew were ok"
Cons: "Delayed Not enough blanket Seat angle too upright, not comfortable"
Cons: "They ran out of 1of the choices of the meal and I was forced to take the remaining meal which was fish cakes, which I don’t eat. There should be enough food to cater for passengers and regular snacks on board."
Pros: "Their Dreamliner plane is spacious, well fitted, not cramped."
Cons: "Unable to listen to movies with their headphones - too much static"
Pros: "None....RBA shld give everyone a free voucher. Flight is supposed to arrive at 23:30. We landed 02:15. And they let people starved serving the snacks an hour late as promised. Then passengers were moved from one gate to another. It was inhumane and no explanations at all about the delay."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Can improve food."
Pros: "Entertainment is very up to date Crew striving to help Nice all in all"
Cons: "Boarding usually late"
Pros: "legroom good despite A320 being much inferior to B387 Found an aisle seat helpful to older passenger flight on time cabin crew friendly and efficient selected fish meal.bangus..very good did not miss alcohol captain spoke normal English happy with travellers prayer good airbridge on arrival with nearby toilets pleasant arrival procedure for overnight stay"
Cons: "A 320 necessarily lowers the quality compared with dreamliner eg access to toilets and aisle width and entertainment system at manila the`woman at checkout spoke very poor english so had to repeat several times... and she expressed doubt about any seat vacant as`i was late in the queue.. she resolved this by passing me to her supervisor no other problems"
Pros: "Friendly crew, always available and happy to help"
Cons: "Boarding was late"
Pros: "Love the 787. Best windows best toilets, 3by 3 seating. Love daytime travel. Am senior and given bes t possible aisle seat. Friendly check in a t Melbourne. Super cabin crew all smiling and keen to assist...all very smart dress.Good movie selection on average screen. Good service pillows blankets. Above average lunch with quality beef. Good follwup refreshments. Good air quality. Good use of shaded window effect.Liked"
Cons: "Worst was slow moving line at Melbourne. Not enough check ins. Missed the tail and fuselage cameras on 780 and 750. Seat covers look cheap and worn. Coffee and orange flavour not best. Screens not best eg Cathay and Qatar. Women cabin crew good to dress islamic but too restrictive. No t easy th o hear captain messages. Seat design only average. Bandar airport ver y beautiful but need better restaurant."
Pros: "Super crew. Boarding full plane very efficient. Airbus A320 inadequte to serve great meal to full plane. Gangway too narrow. Big struggle for cabin crew. Captain message hrd to hear. On time. Good landing. Entertainment bad flip down screens not good enough."
Cons: "See above. Aircraft not ok for busy sector. Eg A330 required"
Cons: "Dont know why I can not choose seat, it automatically give me a seat next to exit and in the middle, I cannot change it."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing"
Pros: "We were in transit and I checking-in was orderly. Grateful for friendly crew."

Pros: "Very clean aircraft, very good service from friendly, helpful crew, entertainment system is very good."
Cons: "Didn't like the hot meal much. Preferred that crew gave extra water during meals even without asking. Fruits should have been offered, too."
Pros: "Gave me aisle seat, great service"
Pros: "Dreamliner appears to have more room, the seats recline to a greater angle, and it is not cold like a lot of other planes. Cabin crew were friendly, helpful and attentive. The break up of flight legs between Australia and U.K. into 3 legs of 7 or 8 hrs is a great alternative to the 1x9hr & 1x12hr."
Cons: "The entertainment system functionality is great, but choice was a bit poor, although numerous. Food generally quite good, only one meal I was disappointed with."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 5 hours and then cancelled. While I understand this happens, it was completely unorganized. They didn't have any plans to try to get people on other flights (passengers ended up organizing this), they provided a hotel but we had to sit there for over an hour while they tried to find one, and when trying to get flights gets the next day, staff was not proactive...the only way people got rebooked was if they told them what to do."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 20min from the outset as the pilot explained to all onboard that we weren't allowed to land early at Dubai airport. Towards the end of the flight the plane was delayed for over another hour as we circled the gulf waiting to land. This wouldn't have been so inconvenient if the lights were dimmed again as it was 2-3am local time and passengers wanted to sleep."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite"
Cons: "The layover at Brunei airport was a little boring as there's not much to do for three hours."
Pros: "Best crew I have ever had"
Cons: "Leg room is too small."
Pros: "Crew are just the best"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganised, excellent service otherwise."
Pros: "They were able to accommodate my request to move to an aisle seat"
Cons: "Sticklers for luggage weight and the plane was small"
Pros: "I Have booked true which is Byojet is absolutely disgraceful I'll be seekong to recover alm fears gro Byojet they been absolutely Nightmare"

Cons: "Very short flight means may not have time for loo visit. Be warned! Use the airport loo before boarding!"
Pros: "The food!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service with a smile. Great manners."
Cons: "Nothing. Great crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Everything was good except for the food. It was average"
Cons: "I like the flexibility of the staff re changing seats. Ground and air staff were very friendly Flight cost was cheap"
Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality. And unlike previous comments, actually enjoyed the fact I had to disembark at Dubai on flight from Brunei to London allowing us all a chance to stretch our legs, go to the toilet and get a good cup of coffee."
Cons: "Nothing."
