First time on Starlux. I was impressed. Very eager to assist flight crew
Premium Economy on Starlux- a worthwhile way to cross the Pacific. This is a great premium economy experience. The seats are comfortable, wide and provide decent foot rests. The seatback TV is large, high resolution and plenty of content. Bluetooth connection for your headset and control from your phone is available. Food was decent and in line with the cabin class. The seat could be improved by providing more lower leg support especially for taller guests (6ft myself). Cabin crew will be moving up and down the aisle a lot since the galley is in front.
Screen size was nice. No vent when hot, food was not good
Wish plane type had more restrooms… Care and consideration from stewards and stewardesses was so great
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."
Cons: "At check-in counter in MNL, the JAL agent mistakenly told me that I don't need to claim my bag and re-check at DFW before heading to final destination MEM. Food wasn't as good as previous JAL flights earlier this year and last year. That said, it's still better than other airlines."
Cons: "I might have missed it but the useful information of the weather of the destination was not announced this trip. Some pilots make the flight more personal with their messages with their PA system. No need to be interrupted a movie we are enjoying for the promotion of inflight purchase though."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The foods could be better not up to the standard of EVA air on economy class"
Pros: "On time. Boarding was great. Flight wasn’t full so plenty of room to stretch out."
Pros: "The window shades were so cool. Seat was small but fairly comfortable and I like the foot rest."
Cons: "No vegetarian options on the main meal menu"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Cons: "food from manila to japan was excellent,food japan to vancouver was not...could only eat half of it"
Pros: "I like everything about flying JAL. That is why JAL is always my first choice."
Cons: "I did not like when I can’t choose my seat after booking a flight."
Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"
The crew are very polite and attentive, the plane is comfy and clean. The food could have been better. It's not for all people's taste. They should give atleast two meals in a 4-5hr flight, a snack and a meal coz the portions are so little.
Airplane food was not good from Manila to Chicago. But the flight from Chicago to Manila - food was great! Big contrast
Food from Philippines to Japan was excellent but served a little late. Food from Japan to USA WAS LOUSY and they only served hot food one time for breakfast which means 2 hours away from arrival. Hot food meal should have been served 2 hours after boarding in an airport where everything ia closed after 9 pm. Some of the connecting passengers did not have a hot meal for at least 12 hours or maybe more.
Pros: "Fast check in. Awesome flight attendant on United and All Nippon Air. Flight on ANA has awesome service."
Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"
Cons: "Wheel chair transport requested did not come so I had to wait 15-20 min in Tokyo."
Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful, the kind of people I wish that I could have spent time to get to know."
Cons: "It would have been really nice to have taller seats. I’m only a little over 6’3” with shoes on and the seats were still quit short and uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "Crew was good. The food was good quality."
Cons: "Boarding took along time and then the plane was delayed, not their fault but it made the trip less enjoyable. Manila is a poor hub."
Pros: "The flight was relaxing and the layover in Tokyo was brief and comfortable."
Pros: "I like the way the flight attendants treat the passengers. They are very courteous, friendly and wearing very sweet smiles.The airplane is very prompt when it comes to arrival and departure schedule. Thank you very much for providing me a wheelchair which made my travel more convenient."
Cons: "So far there was nothing that I didn't like. The food was good and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "First time flying with EVA and was better than I expected. Crew was super friendly. I had a layover and flight was always on time."
Pros: "Comfort of the seats."
Cons: "There should be more choices of food for people who do not eat Asian food."
Pros: "The crew members were good but the seat is small with not much of leg room. Foods were suck & not appearing"
Cons: "Good appearing & tasty foods with better snacks"
Cons: "Plane was packed, we couldn’t get on line to check in early so ended up not sitting together"
Pros: "Comfortable seat with good storage and lavatories are clean and big."
Pros: "Special meal options. Services from Cabin attendants were also nice."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating!"
Cons: "Just being in the plane in general. Sitting for 12 hours is really uncomfortable"
Pros: "Not many interruptions by crew on the PA system. Communication was kept quick and to the point. Flight Attendants were attractive, courteous, and fairly efficient. They cam by more than the first flight, even though it was 1/3rd the length of light. I liked the beef w/onion & brocolli meal, although more onions should have been included, I think I got four small segments of onion. Yes, I’m nit-picking a bit . . . But that’s what reviews are for, right?"
Pros: "The flight to Taiwan from LAX was miserable. It was so hot i sweated the entire 14 hours. Was told they cannot adjust it. Easier to get blanket to be warm no way to cool off"
Pros: "Mom got the flight but hearing good things about Eva Air, I can't wait to try!"
Pros: "I got upgraded to business seat on the way from danang to seoul:)"
Cons: "Food was not that good"
Cons: "I tried to cancel the flight more than 14 days before the flight and you didn't let me. I couldn't fly that day and i have not received a refund"
Pros: "Check in was smooth all helpful Cabin crew were efficient cockpit communication good."
Cons: "No alchoholic drinks available with lunch service. Emphasis seemed to be on duty free sales early stages of the flight"
Pros: "The aircraft was newer and more spacious than the long flight from LAX to Incheon."
Pros: "My husband and I were flying out of Jeju Island on the morning of 6/27/18 flt#OZ8922 to Seoul for a connection to Tokyo. The morning had some heavy rain and some flights were delayed, including ours. I don’t know if it’s your normal procedure in these situations but your staff at the baggage check/boarding pass counter were extremely conscientious and effective. They anticipated our dilemma and had our baggage removed from the delayed flight and put us onto a Korean Air flight that got us to Seoul on time to make our international connection to Tokyo. It was a long and tiring day of travel but because of your profession personnel it, including those at Korean Air, we avoided what could have been a much tougher situations unfortunately I can’t recall the names of the staff involved. I want to say the was a lady last named Joon and one last named Kim. There were other staff too, a young man that brought our luggage back to the check-in counter, and a lady that ran us through the terminal to Korean air and escorted us through security to the boarding gate. all in all it was amazing and thank you to your company and fine staff."
Cons: "The wonderful staff that give such excellent service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and nice, which is rare."
Cons: "Of course flying economy for a long haul is pretty dismal. One the way back the bathrooms did not have running water. ewww! they let a bottle of water for people to use; no thank you!"
Pros: "I like their attentiveness to service. Very efficient and hospitable comes to mind of these highly professional flight crew. From checking in my baggage to getting settled in before take off, meal and beverage service, and to ensuring overall comfort for we the passengers."
Cons: "Just the rudeness of some of my fellow passengers. Otherwise a great flight."
Pros: "Though short flight, flight was on time, food was reasonable, attendants were kind and polite."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable & smelled like vomit. Small selection on entertainment system."
Pros: "Asiana solved a boarding issue with my friend missing his flight. Not only did they get a flight for him that day, it was also free of charge. They went above and beyond for him. Amazing service."
Cons: "The airplane temperature was too hot. Along with my seat mates, I felt like I was in a 13 hour sauna. That being said, airplanes are known to be dry. I would have liked a complimentary large water bottle and/ or personal fan to combat how uncomfortable the experience was."
