Japan airlines feeds you even on 4-5hr flight alaska airlines you get a small package of cookies on 4-5hr flight
They gave me the seat next to a very large person!!!
the biggest disappointments was, we were not informed of all the information we need, on our scheduled trip coming back to US.. We've tried a lot of times calling and send an email asking about any procedures that we might need to know upon our return trip, but unfortunately there was no response either at all. then came the horrific day of our return trip to US. after an hour and a half being in the long line, we are surprised when one of the airline staff announce that we need to prepare all documents needed including ANTIGEN TEST. This was the start of our horrific experience on that day. Were told different information from other sources, but heard nothing from JAL, as mentioned earlier that we tried calling them to ask for any info for our flight. Long story short as a result of this horrific misfortune caused by this airline, aside from the unexpected huge expenses that we incurred, as of this moment this problem is not yet resolve as we called them letting them of the situation happened to us in our recent Manila trip going to Seattle May 31, 2022.
Everything is perfect all staff in the plane is very good I will fly with Japan airlines every time if I go back Thailand thank you so much for perfect service
I would fly this airline again, I would consider one step upgrade from economy for a flight over 5hrs but at 6ft I was still comfortable in economy
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "More Movies and TV shows"
Pros: "Everything was amazing! Crew was helpful, thoughtful and kind."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great. Strongly recommend."
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "The crew that checked me and those who were onboard were very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Better choices of movies on board."
Cons: "Entertaining in English"
Pros: "All of the crews were polite and friendly, and the food was tasty."
Cons: "If there're more variety of movies, that would be great."
Pros: "the Level of service and the Japanese culture was evident at every moment of this flight. Our boarding process was delayed by almost an hour, and it felt like every 5-10 minutes we had an update as to what was going on and why, then passports were checked early, and service was top notch."
Cons: "In my perfect world, we would have updates way in advance if there are mechanical or airport issues but that is a slim to none chance. That is about it. Everything else was amazing!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and cheerful. The beverage selection was very good and the food was decent. The on board entertainment is some of the best around. The boarding efficiency of JAL is the best I have seen."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "More space"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."
Pros: "Staff are the best of all airlines I have been in."
Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "angled flat seats."
Pros: "In particular we give kudos to Tadaka, who seemed to be a manager and went above and beyond to help us with our boarding and seat assignments. She even recognized us the next day! Superior customer service."
Pros: "The crackers design beside the meal and different colors of the sleepers."
Cons: "Ear phone is not so comfortable!"
Pros: "As expected everything was not overly done nor less of comfort and services. The food was Excellent quality and prepared with care. The airplane was new types and flew fast and smooth."
Cons: "The Kansai airport was huge and super fancy. Shere number of people were like the Zoo and its designed to move people through all the retail shops to get to my gate."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants are all nice, polite and always smile. Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Waited for one and a half hrs before the plane took off, almost an hr went by then they announced some minor problem with engine. Good reason but they had a/c on so cold all these times. Also I would appreciate coffee or some drink while waiting...I guess that's not possible in this case."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "They were good at helping with problems being it was my first time on a plane."
Cons: "The food was ok but not very good for as the meals go but they did fill me up with drinks lol"
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."
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system and the not-so-clean restrooms (perhaps due to a full flight or that passengers are just plain dirty)."
Pros: "Still, love JAL's customer service from the cabin crew. The flight attendants are always friendly, courteous and professional. They do a great job of meeting and exceeding passengers expectations"
Cons: "The cabin area was extremely warm; at one point, I had to take out the safety card and fan myself. There was no explanation why the approximately 5-hour flight was uncomfortably warm. During the flight, I woke up from a sound sleep because of the heat in the cabin."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."
Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."
Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"
Pros: "cost performance"
Cons: "non-flat seat"
Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"
Pros: "Enjoyed the greeting, politeness and food"

Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"
Cons: "Didnt realize that Veg Meal, i needed to explicitly request while checking in. ended having bread butter and deserts"
Pros: "The excellent service and courteous staff."
Cons: "Three babies were crying throughout the flight which made the flight in uncomfortable. The flight attendants were spending a lot of time accommodating the babies and parents requests."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the staff friendly. Service was fast and staff friendly."
Cons: "Small leg room."
Pros: "I felt well taken care of the whole time. When checking my bag, the attendant saw that I have a middle seat, and got me an exit row window, which allowed me to sleep. They accommodated a last-minute request for vegetarian meals. The flight felt like it took about half the time it actually did."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online without a JAL account."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "As always, the Japan Airline's stewardess takes care of you so well, they really make your trip a very comfortable one. (Think the Japanese airline crews are the most caring, with thorough service, and they are surely one of them."
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "Everything !!!"
Cons: "Food was very bland"
Pros: "the flight attendants were fantastic"
Airplane food was not good from Manila to Chicago. But the flight from Chicago to Manila - food was great! Big contrast

Pros: "The 787 is fantastic. First class feels in the economy. The food offering is also first class. Service is amazing."
Cons: "Serve the cold soba for all meals. :) Love it."
Pros: "Always excellent Japanese service."
Cons: "No entertainment system, only one channel for everyone in the middle of the airplane like in the 80's. No reclining seats, sit straight only, but decent leg room, unless you are taller than 6ft."
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you 3 months ago I had to change. I won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "The seat is very comfotable. But on the fright from Japan to Bangkok very upset me and my husband. We sat seperated, but on the plane we saw 2 seats available, I asked woman crew that can we move to that seats. She went to talk with the guy who sat on the aisle seat. I heard he said he reserved"
Cons: "The seat beside him for his friend. And the crew said to me she so sorry I couldn't move to sit with my husband. But later no body beside him and he lay down 3 seats all the way. And the crew do nothing for us. We very dissapointed."
Pros: "Meal, crew"
Cons: "1. inside temperature was so cold -especially at the 3rd route from la to tokyo -. 2. Economy seats are not declined, which means less pereonal space. 3. The worst is in-flight entertainment system, UI is so poorly developed, most contents do not provide english subtitles."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, food was filling & plentiful."
Cons: "Overall no complaints but the landing in Tokyo was a little rough. Pilot seemed to descend quickly which hurt my ears but otherwise, smooth flight."
Pros: "Seating was fine"

Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew did not accept tip. Food could be better."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "Lack of airline professional staff at lax airport. There's no set person in charge. We had an emergency return and no one can explain or give us answers for rebooking our flights."
Pros: "ANA is one of our favorite airlines. Consistently great service, if not occasionally a little too 'rule centric'... but it's Japan, and that's why it's so nice and clean and everything works perfectly... :)"
Cons: "Everything perfect for me!"
Pros: "Attentive and polite staff. Comfortable planes. On time flights."
Cons: "I accidentally left an external battery in my check in bag and they stopped me to open my bag and remove it as I was boarding. This is obviously my fault but I wish they had called me up earlier to not disrupt the other passagers and slow the boarding process."
Pros: "Friendly staff and great food. Cabin was spacious even for Economy."
Pros: "Cabin crew were really nice & helpful. My upgraded seat next to an open seat was really nice & comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent service, free new release in-flight movies, comfortable seating, plenty of food and drink included."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd. I felt like it was supposed to be gourmet, but just came off strange. I was wishing for something more straightforward."
Cons: "Very hard landing."
Pros: "Great leg room, staff was very nice, food and entertainment was decent."
Cons: "Flight to Japan and to Vancouver was way too hot. Tough because I wasn't able to turn down heat or increase fan above."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."
Pros: "The seat had good width since I am 6"1 , unlike most American airline the comfort level is much better, not cramped."
Cons: "Not much all good"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient the crew was polite, professional and helpful, seats were comfortable, and the food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Food was good."

Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."
Pros: "Very friendly crew both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "Entertainment options (movies/TV) are rather limited and mostly not to my taste. Entertainment was also the same on the flights there and back, meaning that on the second flight, there was even less choice."
Pros: "The best service I have ever received. The stewardess ladies are incredible."
Cons: "Alternative movie options."
Pros: "Need to step it up with the food, don't have time for shitty service this day and age"
Cons: "Getting overcharged on surfboards, shitty food, should have free wifi give me a break"
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: "They found us seats next to each other even though it said only middle seats were available"
Cons: "Entertainment options are terrible. Food is terrible. Leg room terrible. Glad it arrived 30 minutes early"

Pros: "Crew very polite and friendly"
Cons: "Crew forgot to bring me things twice so I had to ask another crew member on both occasions."

Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment was rather limited."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seafood pasta was good."
Cons: "I wish all airlines have a foot rest."

Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Pros: "Prompt and timely service"
Cons: "Food can be more tasty"
Pros: "With Singapore Airlines the service is always good I actually paid extra to fly them after three weeks in India"

Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"
Pros: "Everyone was very attentive and nice. The leg room is decent ."
Cons: "Some of the food didn't taste amazing, would've like maybe a different choice other than salmon or curry pork"
Pros: "The main course"
Cons: "Items missing or substituted in the veg but was ok in regular meals. In one veg serving, no salad or dessert was included. Margarine instead of butter for only in the veg meal."
Cons: "Hostesses not so pleasant"
Pros: "The serivce was amazing. Also it was clean and the food was great."
Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"

Cons: "Seats on the A380 upper deck economy are too uncomfortable, couldn't relax at all during the 5h red-eye to Singapore"
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."
Pros: "The staff was very responsive and the food was great. Ground staff in SIngapore helped me to modify the tickets due to us missing our connection to Phuket. Very helpful. Irene at the transfer desk was an excellent manager. The wheel chair staff was excellent all through."
Cons: "It would be great it the seats were leather so that plane would feel more cleaner."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "Very friendly crew & modern aircraft"
Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."
Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."
Pros: "Lounge experience was excellent. Service on the airline in general was excellent. Food and drinks we're just great. I enjoyed the sleeper seat that I was in. Everything was super smooth and I'm so glad I flew with Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report"
Pros: "Safety, Friendlyness, Seats, Entertainment"
Pros: "They whole process was just too tiring, especially when passengers were expected to lug around all their packed bags, instead of the airline catering to hold the luggage in the airport holding area"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed and no apologies were made. We had to rush to our connecting flight."
Pros: "Professional, courteous, high-quality all around from food, to service, to entertainment options. Singapore Airlines is first class all the way."
Pros: "Lots of movie and game options"
Cons: "Staff was slow to tend to my needs (i.e. Water), continually bumped into my shoulder or leg. Would not accommodate moving my seat next to my wife's because a couple wanted to have an entire row to themselves. Very frustrating"
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
After going back and forth with the airline, they never reimbursed the airline tickets. Went around asking multiple people how to get reimbursed and kept getting put back, not satisfied with their customer service.
Pros: "Size of seats and space in business"

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing really. It is just hard work doing such a marathon flight."

Cons: "Hello, My name is Mikyoung Seo who tried to book the flight tickets through your website. I got the e-ticket from you after buying the ticket by my credit card but a miniute later I got the other email from you regarding Thai airline did not process my flight so you recommended me to buy another ticket. So I bought another ticket. Today I found out in my credit card invoice there is a payment to charge for the first flight. Please cancel it before my money going out.

Pros: "When I boarded this flight, I could already feel the Thai atmosphere. I generally enjoyed the flight without any serious problems."
Cons: "I was surprised to realize that we were packed in this full flight to Thailand from Sapporo like sardines. However, it was OK because I was alomost always sleeping during the flight.

Pros: "Overall experience was good"
Pros: "Excellent service on board and in the check in and gate area. Love the frequency of hot towels."
Cons: "The seats need to be upgraded to the lie-flat standard of other airlines -- the current seats are not comfortable for sleeping. Thai undersells itself by not offering Thai food on its international flights. There were no amenity kits!"

Cons: "Delay from Almaty to Aktau about 1hr. Other perfact"
Pros: "Price Travel Kit Relatively new aircrafts"
Cons: "I experienced the same things in both of my flights. Flight attendants did not even asked me what I wanted to drink. I have to yell them to receive their attention. They really nee some training."
Pros: "Price Travel kit"
Cons: "The flight attendants ignored me every time they serve drinks. Even when I push the button it took them 10 minutes to get there and then they forgot to bring my water. I had to ask again. There were some Kazak people in front of me, it did not even take two minutes to bring their water. I don't understand, I guess staff is afraid of speaking in English. The aircraft was old and not comfortable."
Pros: "Last half hour was through storms. I doubted we would be able to land. Not only did we land, but it was one of the smoothest set-downs I have experienced. These guys/gals know how to fly in winds."
Cons: "Absolutely full place, slow boarding."
Pros: "Every seat taken, but with a 2/2 configuration, it was fine. Didn't even have long lines for the toilet. Both landings were super smooth, and one was extremely skillfull - we had been bouncing around in a storm, and the pilot still put us down smoothly."
Cons: "Don't like boarding by bus."
Pros: "Almaty airport needs to be improved and pictures on Air Astana web are much better than real ones. Also check in counter personals are really unskilled."
Cons: "check in counters"
Pros: "Flight attendants were really warm welcoming and benevolent. Food and drinks are good"
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable, good service on-board."
Cons: "Like Astana Airport, the domestic to international transfer at Almaty is also not well signposted and even though it's the same building, requires going outside in the cold and then back inside. Also Almaty Airport is crowded, the toilets are poor and it really needs to be refreshed. Air Astana is a great airline but is really let down by the poor transfers at both Astana and Almaty."
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable."
Cons: "The transfer from international to domestic flights is not well signposted. It's also odd that even though it's the same building, you have to go outside, walk some minutes and then go back inside. At that time of the year it was quite cold outside!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Good food."
Cons: "Flight timing in the middle of the night was horrible. While the seat would have been fine for a day-time flight, it was most uncomfortable to try and sleep in for an overnight flight. What made it worse that the man sitting next to me spilled over into my area."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No legroom or entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of communication when flight was delayed. No communication at all."
Pros: "Check in ok"
Cons: "Gate agent said the plane is full and dint look to change my seat but turns out a lot of seats on the plane Flight attendant said no to me to change seat but yes to another Russian speaking pessager! Overall, a bad experience with 49 minutes delayed flight!"
Cons: "The flight was nearly 5 hours delayed with no explanation why or compensation."
Pros: "Gave us a hot snack sandwich and drink for a short less than 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They did not even attempt to text, though they knew the flight would be delayed. When I asked the check in agents about this, they said what can they do? This is a serious lack of taking personal responsibility. What can they do? They work for the company! There are several steps they could take, but they chose to abdicate responsibility instead. Even though I'd been there for several hours and specifically asked for a window seat and been granted a window seat, during boarding, they changed my seat to a middle, which was the icing on the cake. Also, during announcements, the pilot did not even give an apology. This is poor management And I'm disappointed in Air Astana."
Pros: "Decent food. Direct flight. Good plane."
Pros: "Empty plane."
Cons: "Ran out of Sauerbraten."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room therefore comfort on the plane. The staff were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The selection of movies seemed on the whole dated."
Pros: "The first leg from Bangkok to Almaty was amazing. A great crew, a nice airplane and overall a nice flight in economy."
Cons: "The second leg was the total opposite. An old plane and a less than ideal flight. That airplane has to be taken out of service or upgraded. Its like we were flying on a plane that hadn't been upgraded since the day they bought it 30 years ago."
Pros: "Good ground handling staff that dealt with my special baggage requests well. Clean new plane. Pre-departure beverages even in economy class."
Cons: "No service offered. No drinks, nothing. Admittedly it was only a 35 minute flight but at least water would have been nice in-flight."
Cons: "No individual screens for movies for an Intl flight. I'd be better to fly Turkish Air instead"
Pros: "Air Astana consistently has clean and comfortable equipment"

Pros: "food on flight to georgia was good"
Cons: "food returning from georgia was bad"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Business Class Lounge in Almaty is a joke,,,and if your flying Air Astana it's even more of a joke as you have to pay for anything you eat or drink. If you have other options avoid Almaty and Air Astana at all cost. This is the first Business Class lounge I've ever seen without Wi Fi ."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive cabin crew, very clean plane!"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about my experience. We had an on-time departure and smooth arrival into my destination. Boarding was seamless and efficient. The crew were very pleasant and professional. And the meal service and in-flight entertainment were more that I could have asked for. Excellent experience."
Pros: "I always choose this flight since it coincides with my planned domestic connecting flight."
Cons: "No seat entertainment. Public display or monitor for viewing flops down from above and strategically situated only. You cannot choose an entertainment."
Pros: "The flight kit was nice - with earbuds, sleeping mask, socks, toothpaste, et cetera."
Cons: "The group of passengers, easily 20 people or so, who were crowding the aisles and really loud for a majority of the flight. The flight attendants were very passive in getting them settled, and seemed to take out their frustration with them in the way they served all the other passengers."
