Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"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."

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 had to keep calling them to restore it back to original flight but was unsuccessful. This is the worst customer service and business model ever!!!!! I will have to get rid of my membership... Food- They ran out of the beef dinner I wanted so they served a substitute. It tasted awful!!!! The seafood dinner on the return trip home was also awful! They need to find a vendor that can cook western dishes well. Comfort- The seat for the economy doesn't have enough leg room esp for a 16 hours flight. Crew- can be more friendly. No one is smiling or accommodating to a small request! They are very stingy in terms of offering extra water, ginger ale or juices."

Cons: "Gluten free meals were so bland and unappetizing they were difficult to enjoy. Providing salt and pepper would help. Vegetables were undercooked ie potatoes too firm to cut easily. On the positive side the fruit was appreciated."
Pros: "Glad to have food and drink on the flight. Airline flight attendants were superb on all 4 Asiana flights from Honolulu, Hawaii to Vietnam via Seoul, Korea that I took. Beautiful as well as super efficient and responsive to all requests. I felt "served" as a customer in the best sense of the word, something I have not felt for a long time on an airplane. Even through the flights were long and very full, the attendants were very professional and this made the flight seem shorter and more enjoyable. The economy seat had more legroom and seat space than most other airlines, which made sleeping/dozing much easier. Pillow and blanket too."
Cons: "Food was so-so, except for the Korean dinner which was very good. I had to ask for a 2nd glass of wine - skimpy portions both times."
Pros: "The staff are very polite and patient. The food service was on time and the food is well-balanced."

Pros: "Everything Just fine."

Cons: "what i did not like about asiana was at the check in counter in New York JFK airport. the non asian clerk was pretty strict about overweight baggage. it’s my fault yes for not weighing them ahead of time but the clerk could have been more polite when speaking."
Pros: "i like how accomodating the crew was"
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!"
Cons: "when they leave laugage in korea and they deliver within 2 days"
Pros: "Perfect trip. Glad I tried this airline."
Pros: "The seat quite comfy compared to other airline."
Cons: "Entertainment. Nothing for each use. Bored."
Pros: "very attentive and kind hearted flight attendants, asiana airline always gives me the best impression and satisfying flight experience always. Thank you always!"
Cons: "the aircraft I was in supposedly provide wifi service, however I could not connect to it,tried and checked several times during the flight,it was not available. Except that part,every other parts:perfect!"
Pros: "We actually got there."
Cons: "Terrible seats, no personal entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was frigid."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour, (because of a "connection"? What does that even mean?), food was poor, seats worn and uncomfortable, no personal TVs on an international flight, no alcohol (even for purchase)."
Pros: "Newest Airline A380 Friendly, kindly crew"
Pros: "The posted schedule and price of ticket"
Cons: "Korea to Cebu flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs same as from Cebu to Korea and then to JFK. My niece and her son travelling to UK that same day was very unfortunate missing her booked bus to Brighton due to extreme delay and has to spend more to buy new bus tickets."
Cons: "Very unorganized boarding process."
Pros: "The food was again good and the service was excellent. The entertainment was also good"

Pros: "Good service, boarding on time, got to destination earlier than expected"
Cons: "The air conditioning wasn't quite working, maybe the plane was too old"
Pros: "The crew on this leg were phenomenal. They were very proactive and friendly, and were always smiling and happy to help. Upon boarding, a family had taken over my seat and row, moving themselves without asking and displacing all 3 of us in that row. The crew quickly found a solution where everyone got a seat they desired, even with a completely full flight. The food and entertainment were excellent, with a decent variety of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "When boarding, there is just one huge line with the entire flight lined up. Myself and a few other passengers just waited around the gate area until final call and then boarded, avoiding having to stand in the line that stretched to the next gate. Legroom was decent enough for a 5 hour flight. Asiana flights seem to be in no hurry to depart on time, although they usually arrive on time. We boarded on time, but my flight left the gate an hour late. However, we arrived to PNH ~15 minutes early, so that made up for the delay."
Cons: "WTF IS MY LUGGAGE. No compensation for my lost luggage. I had to buy clothes and basic necessities out of pocket because the airlines have no clue where my luggages went."
Pros: "Helpful staff who regularly cleaned restrooms."
Cons: "Minimal, unhealthy meals. Poor choice of beverages (no cartons of milk) and gloopy fried fish that was all batter. Tpe-Seoul meals were perfunctory boxes with no choices besides malodorous rice. Entertainment was very thin on movies and (jazz/classical) music, and the preview window was about one by two inches, ludicrously small. No English subtitles on most world or Asian movies."
Pros: "Great service. Good meal."
Cons: "Slight delay of 1 hour, late inbound aircraft (weather)"
Pros: "The leg room is very spacious and the staff are very friendly."
Pros: "Great service, comfy spacious seats, decent meal service"
Cons: "Food was a bit bland"
Cons: "They changed our seat assignments, putting someone on the end of our row even though there were many other empty seats. As a result of the constriction, my feet and ankles swelled up. I can barely walk."
Cons: "flight delayed again out of Seoul."
Pros: "I like flying Asiana! Clean, they have built in entertainment screens, and friendly staff."
Cons: "The only thing I found confusing was I requested a Hindu vegetarian meal. For some reason, part of my meal had chicken... luckily, had dinner before boarding the plane so wasn't an issue."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact their website does not offer a variety of choices like vegetarian or vegan or even low calorie or low salt options"
Pros: "Got a court date and want to change the flight date. The cost to change the flight cost more than buying a new ticket. So stayed home instead and lost the purchase ticket."
Pros: "I like everything in it. The flight was excellent. Relaxing!"
Cons: "Nothing serious to mention."
Pros: "Great service, great food very content with Asiana airlines will definitely use it again"
Cons: "We wait for about 1 and a half hour to get off the plane due to some "procedures " with a sick passenger"
Pros: "as above"
Pros: "The crew is not so amazing and the food is not so good.They only serve pork and sea food..i don't eat those food for my religion and i asked for another food anything as long as i had something for im starving, for they never had another food to give? You mean i cannot have food while boarding the plane? Im starving and they don't gibe us any food to eat even if i asked them if theres anything . And that is a total not agreeable we are 3 people riding the plane myself and my kids and we did not have anything to eat. The crew is rude when I asked something instead of looking for another food is theres any. I paid for my flight including the food and i was not able to eat."
Cons: "Crew serving food should be nice and make sure that all passengers have food to eat especially if one, two or three or more doesn't eat pork and shrimp..if only i could i could transfer plane at that moment i will do it. Hope they will not feel the way i feel i was starving the whole flight.."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Finest Airline and service I have encountered and I am almost 2 million miles!"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "Crew and the food"
Cons: "Seating was tight for me a big guy"
Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."
Cons: "3 hours delay for a flight of 1 h 45 min"
Cons: "2:40 flight delay - terrible food and very limited choice on the entetainment system - a terrible airline"
Pros: "Just fine.."
Pros: "was upgraded to a very comfortable flat bed seat been a very long while a cx flight was on time"
Cons: "food quality and entertainment system choices are poor - flight attendants constantly on the pa for meaningless messages that given in languages"
Pros: "crew amazing"
Cons: "flight always late as usual"
Cons: "flight delayed as always"
Cons: "flight delayed as usual"
Cons: "flight delayed as always"

Pros: "My cabin bag got lost and theres no way to track it. Complete outrageous."
Cons: "Everything. Worst experience of my life"
Pros: "Overal, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "My headphone jack did not work, but I was able to switch seats. I could see that being a big draw back if I was not able to switch."
Pros: "Flight was not delayed"
Cons: "Economy seating needs more leg room. Carry on baggage weight is just 15 lbs."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."
Pros: "The flight crew showed great hospitality and quality service. Leg room was amazing and the food too. I recommend this flight to those going to and from Manila. Make sure to find a stopover that's less than 3 hours long if you have a connecting flight for example from SFO- Hong Kong to Manila"
Cons: "I believe the entertainment could be better. Other than that the flight is legitimate.."
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Pros: "Very efficient service and prompt arrivals unlike United Airlines.aircraft was modern and equipment was generally well maintained."
Cons: "What other snack options available other than Ramen Noodles. Maybe a low carb option is needed. There are some noodles made from soy products and these will be low carbohydrate. Seats in economy are ok for short people. All airlines should designate an infant seating area close to toilets. This way all infants will be restricted to these seats and the noise pollution in the aircraft is restricted to a small section of the ship.these seats can be specially configured to either seat a no rmal adult or a fast attachments for a baby carrier."
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Cons: "None in particular"
Cons: "Flight to Hongkong arrived late in Hongkong hence had to stay extra 31/2 hours in Honking to wait for the next flight to New York!"
Pros: "The Stewardesses were polite"
Pros: "The cabin crew was nice, courteous, and professional. The cookie and juice were good. The variety of music was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Airport crew leaves a lot to be desired. The passenger next to me took up too much space- no fault of the airline tho. The soy chicken was salty."
Pros: "I like the snacks offered"
Cons: "Great crew we got a soft landing"
Pros: "Superb crew and excellent service."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat won't recline"
Pros: "Staff very courteous and helpful Food was average"
Pros: "food was awesome. the seats were pretty comfortable. the in-flight crew were always so helpful and smiling. there was quite a collection of movies to choose from which is nice."
Cons: "The ground staff at the departure lounge were most of the time chatting or walking in circles and chatting. Also they were not as organized nor as accomodating than expected. Kinda shows a lesser level of professionalism than the crew in other countries."
Pros: "Spaciousness of the plane Flight Crew Cleanliness of the plane Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Food Luggage space of cabin not enough Promptness of plane ,our plane was late Manila airport terminal 3 no air-conditioning while waiting Boarding was disorganized last seat should board first no announcement from crew and no implementation of plan.

Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"
Cons: "We were scammed by Kayak and Cathay Pacific. We had entered all our information correctly: first, middle, and last name. Cathay Pacific did not print the middle name of the boarding pass. Apparently, Hong Kong is strictly on the passport exactly matching the boarding pass. We were stopped before security and Cathay Pacific decided it was the perfect opportunity to charge us $400 for a rebooking instead of amending the name, which we had entered correctly in the first place. We were pushed back and forth between kayak and cathay when kayak told us they weren't able to change the name on the day of the flight. Will never fly cathay or book from kayak again."

Pros: "Comfortable plane and a good price"
Cons: "Long queues for check in at Manila - I should have checked in online. Boarding was chaotic and people were getting stressed - maybe people could line up in seat row order to make the boarding process smoother."

Pros: "Friendly airline staff. Ease of obtaining boarding pass at the counter. Clean, modern aircraft. Thanks China Airlines!"
Cons: "As with all airlines, the "the hurry up and wait" processes associated with getting onto the plane are tiring."
Cons: "- The check-in counters opened at least 30 minutes late. The agents arrived late, they seemed to be having a good time and didn't feel the need to explain the reason for the delay nor apologize for it. - On my flight to Manila from Los Angeles, I did not check in any luggage. I had a carry-on and a backpack that fit perfectly well into the overhead bins and underneath the front seat. On my flight from Manila to Los Angeles, I was not allowed to take the same set on board because the total weight exceeded 7 kg. This put me in a bind because the heaviest item I had was my small LCD monitor which was in my backpack. I had to put it into the carry-on with wheels which I had to be checked-in. I would have prepared to carry it in my backpack because it is a fragile item. When I was told to sign a document that absolves the carrier of any liability for the checked-in luggage and I refused, the China Airlines Duty Officer in Manila informed me that unless I sign the document, my luggage will not be loaded on the plane. I felt extremely frustrated by the attitude of the Duty Officer who didn't hesitate to threaten me and insisted that the rule was imposed on them by the TSA in the US. Instead of helping me work out a solution to the difficulty I was facing, he simply walked away with a dismissive attitude."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Lots of movie selections."
Cons: "Only serving tea and coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Checking in from Manila was excellent. The staff was nice and accommodating. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My ears were painful the whole time probably because it was a small aircraft."
Pros: "I do like their premium economy class, nice attendants"
Cons: "Food is average, their airbus planes within asian countries are obselete, all 4 flights we had with them are all delayed,"
Pros: "Boarding was organized by zones. Pretty smooth and quick."
Cons: "Having to checkin a carry on that was supposedly bulky when a) many people had backpacks at the same time as a hard case carry-on and b) this was the same carryon my son had on the outbound. Supposedly, FAA is more strict going into the US. The supervisors in the Manila-Taipei (10:45AM Jan 3, CI702) were very petty and inconsistent. The laptop backpack and carryon bag were already weighed and they demanded to re-weigh them."
Pros: "It’s takes s long time checking in due to long lines."
Cons: "Sits are too small and wish better choices for the food they serve."
Pros: "The airline crew was very professional and friendly"
Cons: "The boarding can be confusing as an economy passenger it’s a free for all when they call for your section"
Pros: "China Irline crew and staff have the painful boarding and check-in process to a science: impressively organized which makes check-in and boarding such a breath."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, decent seat size, decent leg space, lots of movie and TV options"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on a330, food is lackluster, overhead bins in a330 can be a little hard to reach. Maybe not an issue on newer planes? Tight aisles. Leg space could be a little bit better. Non adjustable headrest (height wise). Poor boarding procedures at manila but that's a given"
Pros: "Crew are courteous and efficient and food was good"
Cons: "Check isn't organized at all"
Cons: "Warm wash cloth must not be eliminated especially for long flights. I was not able to charge my phone since the outlet was non-functional. The flight experience wasn't that bad with the budget price of the ticket. Over-all it was okay."
Cons: "Plane delayed 7 hours for a maintenance problem and all I got for my wait was a $25 voucher. That is an insult!"
Pros: "Lot of food, good entertainment selections, friendly"
Cons: "Did not appreciate the Delayson the flights, and this is annoying that you are making me type a certain amount of characters for a review"
Cons: "Originating flight in Manila to Taipei to connect to our SFO flight was cancelled late in Manila due to 'technical' issues (waiting in terminal, 4 hours past scheduled departure, which meant missing our connection to SFO), and the ensuing parade through having to stay in Manila overnight (on CA's dime, plus food), then rushed back to the airport the following morning (very short notice), then to have to wait again as CA figured out how to get a previously scheduled flight into the flight plan management systems, and obviously without a proper method to coordinate this sort of thing - ultimately all of this lack of 'control' over their situation, lead to a feeling that China Airlines does not know how to contend with interruptions, or how to make their customers feel informed so that they may be more understanding. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers). Bad image CA, bad image."
Pros: "I have flown on many airlines to include many US carriers for domestic travel, as well as, many international carriers. I have flown around the world 4 times in the 2016-2017. These flights were flown in Coach. I have to say that China Air was remarkable in its service, cleanliness, on-time departure and arrival, and all around airline operation. The meals were decent, the entertainment was well rounded, the aircraft was clean, the seats were wider and had greater leg room, the flight attendants were responsive and trained, and the on ground support was very helpful. I don't have anything negative to say about China Air and I have crossed the Pacific on thief airline three times now."
Cons: "Their web interface for miles account and general information needs a great deal of attention. I would love tosee them make improvements to their web and smart phone applications because they detract from the great service that they providein Air."
Pros: "Decent leg room iand comfort seats n coach, unlike US carriers without paying more for it, and selection of movies. Food was decent and service fast and efficient. For a 2 hr flight, Big THumbs Up!"
Cons: "All Good"
Pros: "Crew is friendly and patient."
Cons: "Meals were terrible and came in bird size portions. I'm petite and still didnt think the portions were enough. On top of that, the food was unappetizing. I only ate rice because the fish looked horrible. Boarding was a mess. The airline ground crew were ineffective in new york and manila. Our flight was delayed because they couldn't board everyone in time. Premium economy is pretty good- seats are large. Economy is a zoo. Don't think I'll be travelling with China Airlines again soon."
Pros: "China Airlines has decent food menu and on-board entertainment. Overall a good flight experience."
Cons: "I just hated the frequent delays."
Pros: "Flew Business and the seats and the service were excellent as expected. The food was OK. Good price for business class."
