Pros: Everything was fast, smooth and easy.

Cons: Hong Kong Air wouldn’t give me my boarding pass until I had booked an onward flight leaving Thailand. I wish I had foreseen this, it’s annoying having to book a flight in 5 minutes when you don’t know your travel plans.

Pros: The crew was very professional and courteous; inflight meal was quite good and the prearrival snack of a tuna sandwich was one of the best I have ever had.

Cons: The flight had some occasional bumpy spots but that is not ANA's fault. The landing was kind of like a violent shock and the plane seemed to slide a little sideways but everything was fine.

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: 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.
