Pros: Standard flight
Cons: My connecting flights were terrible. I was kept at the airport on a layover to another city and they wouldn't let me board because they said my passport number was entered wrong on the reservation. This made no sense as I had gotten off another flight on my way back home. No one at the airport in Shanghai was helpful and it was really frustrating to think that I would be stuck in China. I was finally able to track down a international supervisor who was able to print out my boarding passes and let me board my flight. Unfortunately, another family with small kids were dealing with the same issue as me only their flight was leaving in 30 mins. I hope they were able to make their flight.
Pros: The cabin crews professional, kind, and helpful attitude all the time during the flight.
Cons: 1- The boarding, was very late as well as the departure. 2- The captain’s departing and landing technique, I had a feeling the plane was going to dismantle due to his harsh landing!. 3- The food’s quality.
Pros: Food - Free dinners even for economy class. Entertainment - Every seat has a TV that offers multiple languages and tons of blockbuster movies from a variety of genres. They also offer many television shows in multiple languages and genres and video games. Roomy- The seats are as non-roomy as any airplane. However, the flight attendants don't give you any trouble when you want to just get up and walk around and talk to people. It gives the plane a roomy atmosphere. You can go to spacier sections of the plane to hang out.
Pros: Not much interaction with crew Felt crammed in
Cons: More leg room And don’t slam overheads so hard
Pros: Nothing. I was sold a ticket for 709 dollars and wasn’t told I couldn’t get on until showing up to the gate. Therefore I had to spend 1000 more dollars to book another ticket because budget air wouldn’t change or refund the flight.
Cons: Not selling a ticket with a layover where someone with a US passport cannot travel through at the moment. Be more forthcoming.
Pros: I managed to get a comfortable seating
Cons: The flight attendants would forget me when tending to everyone
Pros: The crew was really nice, as you can expect from a Japanese company. Super helpful and smiling. The food was also very good.
Cons: The space is really tiny. The screen also tiny.
Cons: Wouldn't let us on the flight when there was plenty of time to get there. Manager was arrogant and slow - didn't care. Poor policies at that airport.
Pros: Never never fly with This airline Poor Customer service
