Flight from Tokyo to Dallas pleasant. One Stewardess offered 1 type of breakfast fried noodles. While another one thought no one approached me but asked if I want noodles or eggs for breakfast. In other words..not same offerings. Upon arrival in Dallas..no wherlchair assistance. Had ro walk from tarmac to terminal, to Immigration, Customs then baggage claim..no help.
Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"
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."

Pros: "Food, pleasant and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Long layovets"
Pros: "Very nice quality crew and consistent service. Very helpful at desk check-in. Compared to US airlines, is much prefer Japan Airlines!"
Cons: "The flight was late to board. The crew was polite but not overly friendly. I wish they had an earlier flight so we didn't have a 15 hr delay in Narita but I guess the itinerary is what it is."
Pros: "When I checked in for my flight it was fast, efficient and friendly. Their Manila staff is awesome! I was very impressed and happy with their service. I will be using JAL again."
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."

Pros: "The service Japan Airlines gives is always the best service possible.They treat you like they need you and not the other way around.I will fly with them again."
Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."
Pros: "The check-in was flawless and gave me accurate information about my luggage being checked all the way through. I had an overnight layover in Tokyo and they handled my luggage the way I expected."
Pros: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The Pilot communicated to the passengers only one time during this 4 1/2 hour flight. The flight attendants were making the announcements for arrival information and timing. Maybe in this culture the Pilot is above speaking to the passengers."

Pros: "Seats in cos are comfortable and plenty of leg room compare to US airlines. Food selection is very good as well as the service. Flight Attendants were very friendly and attentive. Will fly JAL again!"

Pros: "Clean and very good service."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."
Pros: "food was great flight attendants are courteous and reliable"
Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."
Pros: "Big bathroom, bide, wifi, movies, very good coffee, spacious seating areas, the price of airfare!!"
Pros: "The bathroom is super clean."
Cons: "Maybe you can make some alterations with your meal offerings."

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.

Cons: "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."
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 !!"

Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful, the kind of people I wish that I could have spent time to get to know."

Pros: "My flight is at 9:50 am but I arrived around 5:30 am , as expected the line was already long and one of the crew told us the front desk will not open until 6:30. My husband reserved my ticket going back to US. I was assigned to seat on an exit, but when I went to the gate , one of a female employee keeps telling me if I'm aware I'll be seating on an exit and I said yes , I look for a vacant seat so I can relax while waiting, she went back again and asked me if the front desk desk gave me any paper about the task I have to do when seating on an exit. I read it and understand . She came back again for the third time and borrow my boarding pass and check something and asked me if I want to transfer to another seat, and I said no. I don't know what she wants me to do , but I'm so irritated because she keeps asking me the same question over and over again."

Pros: "Great layover options. Timely arrivals."
Cons: "Food options were poor. Wished there were more fresh alternatives, like salads and fruits only."

Thank you very much for the wonderful experience we had."
Pros: "Not a single thing. I will be talking to a reporter about this since they are interested in the story"
Cons: "I left 3 hours early from my hotel. This was my first time ever being in the Philippines so I did not fully grasp the amount of traffic. I arrived at the check in counter with 52 minutes to spare and they told me I could not board. The plane wasnt even boarding passengers yet. I even went as far as to say that I would leave my luggage as I had to get on the flight. They did not allow this either. They said that I would need to get on another flight. To add insult to injury they did not credit me with ANY of what I had purchased for my previous flight since I ordered through Kayak. I am 100% dissatisfied with ANA and I am asking kayak to rectify what they have done. I have already emailed ANA upper management and will be taking this to social media, the news, and any other outlet I can find. I had to pay for a hotel, miss 2 days of work and pay for a 700 dollar "premium" seat ticket since that was all they claimed they had. I find that last part funny, since I saw about 12 empty seats on my flight. I am hoping to hear from kayak so they can explain why they do business with a company that clearly does not care about it's customers."
Pros: "Crew is always very polite......."
Cons: "Food...........all Japanese style..........upsets my stomach."
Pros: "It was short flight and I chatted with other passengers from Canada. Even helped them with their entertainment controls."

Someone from the airport employee open our luggages and stole Nike air 1 shoes and Bally shoes, and 6 Nike dri fit shirt, and lots of chocolates.

Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("

Pros: "The seats seem to have more leg room, food was actually good, and the staff was delightful."

Pros: "On time service and crew service"
Cons: "Improvement to entertainment and food selection"
Cons: "Lounge access for my wife traveling in economy I was in business. Had two passes both in my name got a rude and unprofessional greeting by Vietnam Air staff. This in its self will make my reason to fly Vietnam Airlines the last choice."

Cons: "Boarding was announced for gate 27, then 22 on th Board, then back to 27 so we ran around a bit."

Pros: "No turbulence"

Pros: "The food which we didn't expect. The friendly crew. Ease from checking in to flight."

Pros: "Kind attention and assistance with checkin, given priority as an elderly passenger needing a wheelchair."
Cons: "There was no food offered for this 80 minute flight, and the only drink offered was a choice between cold water and s Coke-like soft drink. I get a wheelchair assist (elderly woman with some mobility issues). The service person who brought me to the gate never showed up again to help with the boarding. Instead (??), the airline had me boarding LAST (most airlines have had me board among the first), and then sitting at an aisle seat (most airlines have me at a window). They asked me to wait to deboard until all passengers were off - that is standard. But because I was sitting on the aisle I had to get up and wait standing while the two other passengers on the row got out, and then go back to be seated. Very awkward"
Cons: "Not fare"
Pros: "The whole flight"
Cons: "Nil by"

However, we only got two updates by the crew, once to say that we were unable to land and were now going to Pnomh Penh to refuel, and sending to say we were leaving Pnomh Penh. The total time over five hours and would have been better with more updates."
Pros: "A glass of red wine"
Cons: "Broken seat would not recline"
Pros: "Legroom, comfortable seats, window darkening technology allowed quite a bit of sleep on board."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and nice"
Cons: "The seats are very close together. It's hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good enough seats. Cabin temperature was fine. Easy boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Bus gate when we arrived in HK. Was delayed but not their fault (typhoon in HK). Everything else was fine."
Pros: "The flight on an A350 wide body was uneventful. I was in the "Premium Economy" section, which is sold as regular "Economy" for domestic flights. Excellent seating 2+4+2. The food was OK, not much to write home about, but they skipped coffee and tea because of turbulence (hardly perceptible)."
Cons: "Boarding process in HAN was very confusing: there was a change of gate announcement just when boarding was to start. Everybody went like crazy through the airport terminal looking for a Gate that does not exist. Followed by a counter-announcement. And then being bussed to the aircraft. People came on board up to the last minute... Arrival in SGN crazy for a different reason. All 300-some passengers were bussed again. Just that the ladders were not ready, and then whoever drove could not adjust them, and then the busses were not ready either. 25 minutes from landing to the luggage belts. Vietnamese airports need to work on their their procedures."
Pros: "Good weather and a quick smooth flight"
Cons: "They kept shutting the lights off. The plane was very hot when we first boarded. In the air the air conditioner slowly began to cool off the plane."
Cons: "delay flight from Phu quoc to Saigon from 12h to 18h (more than 6 hours ) . I must cancel that flight for safe and stay one more night and switch to the soonest flight next morning"
Pros: "The leg room is one of the best in economy class. At six feet tall, I was able to stretch my legs and not have my knees against the seat in front of us. The personal entertainment console worked perfectly with clear picture and sound, though the free headphones were uncomfortable. Boarding crew allowed us to cut in line since we had a 2 year old. Very appreciative for that, and appreciative for their sternness with those customers who were trying to slip in in front of us."
Cons: "Crew on board came across as a little unfriendly, though professional seriousness might have been mistaken as annoyance. The food was passable, but definitely not quality. Sufficient amount of beverage was served."
Pros: "Everything was good honestly"
Pros: "Check in was easy. Able to check in baggage easily. Staff was kind"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. Plane was nice and clean. I would not hesitate to fly with then again."
Cons: "$70USD fee for flights under 2 hours if you pay at the airport! Call their customer service and reserve a checked bag by phone a head of time!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The seats were very close together and there was not much room to use the tray table. I could barely fit my laptop on it open with the seat tilted."
Cons: "The flight was overweight so they didn't put my checked bag on the flight along with about 50 other bags. I didn't find out until I went to pick up my bag. I still haven't received it and they should be delivering it today."
Pros: "The staff were very nice."
Cons: "I would like a few more western choices of food in the business lounge"
Pros: "The rolls were warm. That is literally the only positive thing I have to say."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled, which I wasn't alerted to until after I arrived at the airport. They booked me on another one leaving 2 hours later, which was delayed by about another 5 hours. I suppose it was the weather, but a flight going to the same destination on the same airline managed to take off on time, and it was supposed to be leaving 40 minutes after my second flight. I have a hard time believing it was the weather, but who knows? There were absolutely zero gatw agents there to offer any helpful information. They eventually gave us food vouchers, but it was about 5 minutes after 90 percent of the applicable restaurants closed. Everyone on the flight was forced to eat at dairy queen, which quickly ran out of everything anyone wanted. I will never fly Vietnam Airlines again."
Pros: "The crew, the meals, the on time departure and arrival . Philippine Airlines got my attention . I was in BC, and their lounge was awesome and so was the service on board. And the flight attendants as well! A five star airline, thank you !!!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"
Pros: "Great aircraft"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The ride..."

Cons: "The food can be a little better"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and patient. Toilets were always clean."
Cons: "Beer was not available. Sometimes the type of food was not available in the coach class."
Cons: "If the food is better and no flight delay"
Cons: "Airport is not very well organized. Airline is ok but crew did not show the importance of addressing customer service. We paid for choice seats but others got the same without paying. We should have been allowed to move to wider leg room seats since we paid."
Cons: "Long lines at check-in counter. We waited for almost 2 hours!"
Pros: "Crew was great Seat could be better, recline and full bed hard to operate"
Cons: "Seat adjust buttons difficult to use"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the plane was clean."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "We had to wait for additional passengers after boarding and then again after they came in to take off, so waited an additional 2 hours on the plane (it really adds up on 12+ hour flights). Communication about he delay was mediocre, and the website did not have updated flight info for pickup."

Pros: "Leg room was small."
Cons: "Ventilation/in flight air conditioning, checkin lanes and waiting time"
Cons: "It was all good, the crew were very accomodating and keeping us comfortable during the flight. It became uncofortable midflight because of one passenger, named Rachelle Marie Perez Herrera Lim sitting in 54 B started to complain about one female crew. She was unreasonable, unccoperative."
Pros: "Some of the crew are really friendly and accommodating."

Cons: "Slow checking and too much time to wait"
Pros: "The crew was great!"

Pros: "Im comfortable"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"

Cons: "Passengers waited extra 20 mins on the tarmac prior to parking and extra 30 mins for the baggage claim"
