1. Very Enjoyable!! Another Must Watch!! [Rating: 8/10]
My sister told me that the only great thing about this dorama is Kassy's appearance (apparently she likes him because he's handsome and stuff), but that's about it. Yet, when I got to watch it myself I can't stand how wrong she was. May be we have different tastes!

Anyway, its a very heartwarming story. The sensitive and easily touched Kumi-chan is so irressistable and full of energy when it comes to helping people. Her smile is so kawaai too! As the story goes, it unravelled the life and emotion of Yoshikawa Kumiko.

This was my second date (as in second series) with Uchida Yuki and her first as a starting role and she didn't waste any time to make a really good impression. Kassy was good as well especially everytime when he said

2. at least the 2 leads looked good together ^_^; [Rating: 6/10]
this is a mediocre-class drama. o-o not so much of a plot (a very weak one, for tat matter). just ur basic 1-story-1-ep plotline. even the mini-stories are not tat compelling either.

but i must say the stand-out feature of this drama is the 2 main leads -- kashiwabara & uchida. ^.^; coz they're both incredibly good-looking. wished they were couples in real life. most of the cast (i wont name the particular odd-one-out here) were above decent-looking too. :)

so i guess this drama is more of an eye-candy than a strong-plot.

This drama is really worth buying and watching.. honto niii!!! This drama is a combination of hillarious, sweet and happy moments.. a good drama .. really !!

I love Kumi-chan in this story.. she has a big heart and captivating smile.. when I watched her help all those people.. all those troubles for helping people.. that is a very rare trait in todays people.. don't you think?

For those who wants to watch this drama.. feel free... it is more than you expected.. I really think so..

Enjoy .. See you next flight!!!

Great escape from normal dorama, but episode/chapter 8 was boring. The story changes from one dorama to a brand new one too much (every episode) and the girl that is supposed to be in the lead role has a horrible voice and buckteeth (but the guy in the main role fits perfectly.. not a bad looking guy and acted well). This dorama is a good one to watch if you want a break from REAL dorama.

5. great drama [Rating: 10/10]
this drama is hilarious, and yet still manages to balance the comedy out with several touching scenes. uchida yuki's enthusiastic acting overshadowed the unbelievableness of her character, and even though there were very few romantic scenes, the chemistry between kashiwabara takashi and uchida yuki more than made up for it. this show is definitely for all kashiwabara takashi fans! ^_^

6. not bad a show [Rating: 8/10]
the show overall is great... a pity there isn't a more elaboration on kassy's role when he just joined Big Wing, what happened between the two of them, and there isn't much of a funny element in it. But the plot is great, endearing and Yuki has a GREAT smile. Yes, and Kassy has grown up ever since the Naoki role, but isn't he a little too thin? (but still cute)

The story is quite dry, I almost put myself into sleep start from the first half-episode, but the story getting better and better with the kind-heart angel Kumi-chan bring the story alive and excitement. With the gorgeous smiles from Uchida Yuki bring an enjoyable 'til the end. I'm looking forward to see more of her movies.

I suppose this drama is made as a heart-warming drama, and we will laugh if see this drama. Kashiwabara is a great actor and so is Uchida Yuki, they both play nice. Too bad in this drama, it doesn't have story about love, kassy likes yuki, that's all. They shouldn't make us curious what will happen next.

This was a pretty decent drama with a lot of overacting done on Uchida Yuki's part as she played the energetic and Big Wing loving Yoshikawa. There was not really any consistency as you went from episode to episode and the stories in each episode weren't that compelling to begin with.

Kashiwabara Takashi does a wonderful job playing the young head of the Customer Service division of Big Wing as does Uchida Yuki. However, sometimes I found that the overzealous scenes depicted by her were a little more annoying than touching or funny.

I would only recommend this drama to those that have free time on their hands. It's good to watch this and take a break, then come back to it.
2. Comments by makky [Rating: 10/10]
I loved this drama so much!!!!It was so funny, I laughed out loud every episode! Also, it had nice story plots, which made you feel fuzzy inside! I wasn't expecting it to be that great. I LOVED IT! I definitely recommend this drama, and gave it a 10 rating! It's for everyone! You can watch it with your family, or anyone! And the actors were superb too! Usually I would get annoyed with characters like Yoshikawa Kumiko (Uchida Yuki) but she was one of my favorite! Also the meanie Kuriyama Takeshi (Kashiwabara Takashi) did a good job carrying off his persona! This was one the best drama I've seen.
3. Comments by yamada_taro [Rating: 8/10]
Sad to see this heart warming dorama not have good ratings when it aired. It's quite sappy once the episode is near the end, but it leaves you with a good feeling. It takes a look at the service department of the airport, something that's kind of neglected and not seen as important as airline pilots. Uchida Yuki's character may come off as overly hyper and naive, but that's what makes this enjoyable. Kashiwabara Takashi did a good job as the supervisor. It's very interesting to see how his and Uchida's relationship grow as the story develops.
4. Comments by michelle [Rating: 8/10]
Initially, I watch this drama all because of Takashi Kashiwabara. I don't have high expectations towards this drama mainly because I assume that a drama about airports will be something boring. BUT, after several episodes, I find myself hooked into it! AND it's not what I expected. True enough, it talks about airports and stuff about it, but it has also taught viewers about friendship and some morality stuff. Uchida Yuki might be blur at times but I find her really funny! Haha...anyway, watch this and you'll like it!
5. Comments by choco [Rating: 8/10]
The story is okay. I watch it coz of Kassy of course, and he is extremely gorgeous in here. He looks very handsome, cool, and soooo perfect. His hairstyle is perfect, really suitable for his face, makes him more awesome. And he looks really good in that suit.

This is a must watch for all Kassy fans. The story is not that good, but not that bad either. It's somehow refreshing and fun watching it. The soundtrack from Every Little Thing, Graceful World, is energizing.

Great Theme Song - Graceful World [ELT]; but the drama itself isn't all dat good . . . I agree dat Kassy lookz realli realli good there but there wuzn't realli much chemistry between the 2 main characterz . . . u wouldn't actually know if Kassy liked Yuki until da very last episode when he hugz her . . . but if u're a kassy fan, I would definitely recommend u this drama but other-wise . . . watch it if u like family-loving sorta of movies!

It may be a bit cheesy or cliche at times, I love watching Big Wing. I found most of the human stories engaging and sometimes very moving. This is one series that I wish it hadn't ended so soon. It's been a long time since I felt like this. Uchida Yuki as Yoshikawa Kumiko is so likeable, and the rest of the cast were very good too, delivering complete characters even when there were not an awful lot for them to do. Highly recommended! :D

it wasn't so horrible that i want the hours of my life that i watched it back, but it's not really one that i would recommend. maybe i would like it more now since i've watched many more dramas and know the style of comedies (big wing was my first jdrama)... on the upside, kurotani tomoka is very pretty in here! she is one of my favorite actresses now because i was entranced by her beauty watching this

The end dissappointed me!!! I wish the end would go more, I mean moooorrrrrrre interesting that it was!!!

Uchida Yuki's the star of this story, sort of like a dorama version of the French film "Amelie". She's up there with Matsu Takako in terms of being off-the-chart kawaii. Kashiwabara Takashi is charming as the section chief. Nogiwa Yoko kicks ass as the GM of Haneda's Big Wing. As usual, Kurotani Tomoka is hot enough to require an asbestos DVD player.
11. Comments by Hoshi [Rating: 7/10]
The airport setting was really appealing (I juz LOVE airports), but the stories were pretty far-fetched (although each ends with a 'everything's settled' kind of tone). Still, Kashiwabara's acting is excellent as always, Uchida Yuki's (my first time watching her in a drama) smile was indeed dazzling as well. The song by elt is nice too.

Just finished watching this recently coz my friend found the vcd for me. I watched a bit of it on SCV but miss out quite a lot. Kassy is just as cool and handsome as ever in the show. The female lead keep getting scolded by kassy. A very heart-warming and funny show! Highly recommended if you are a Kassy fanatic.
13. Comments by kneehard [Rating: 6/10]
Didn't get to finish watching this series. The story revolves around a new stewardess learning her ways in Haneda airport, her constant scrapes and her not-quite-so-platonic relationship with her supervisor. I think only Takashi Kashiwabara's fans would enjoy this, which is the only reason I watched it.
14. Comments by Jalapeno [Rating: 7/10]
a lot of people thought this drama was so good they gave 10/10 for this one. at first, it has a lot of promises for a good drama. but it ended up to have lots of filler stories and deviated from the major story i was up for - the love story between the two protagonists. sadly, it didn't happen. >_>

Love this so much because 1st I loved all shows that's set in the airport, 2nd Kassy was sooooooo kakoii in this show (I'm breathless everytime he appeared...haha), 3rd Uchida Yuki's smile was so sweet (it cheered up my day everytime I see her smile), 4th the stories were simply so touching.

I really liked this one; this drama is really easy to digest and ones that won't fail you if you desperately need something to watch and pass time. The style of this drama is very much like Good Luck!! but on a very different focus... either way, give it a try. :)

And this is your basic recipie for a love story: cute girl, cold guy, and the cute girl somehow warming the guy's heart. And it really worked well in the series: I found this dorama to be really adorable. Original? No one's calling it that. Cute? Most definitely!

Admittedly, I first watched this dorama because I'm in love with its theme song: Graceful World. Turned out that it is a wonderful drama in its own right. I wasn't particularly captivated by the plot, but it was still a worthwhile drama, all in all.

My favourite drama of all time! It's because of this drama that I noticed Kashiwabara Takashi. The story is based on a manga so the plot is kind of dramatic. However, it is so entertaining!! This is the only drama that I bothered to watch twice!!

Kassy's image in Big Wing is totally different. He looks more mature and more handsome. Yuki acted as a very nice girl who always help people and get herself into trouble and always got scolded by Kassy. But at the end they're together.

a story on the life of a stewardess and how she changes the lives of people she met..is this believable? however, Uchida Yuki plays it nicely. if only there were more romance between him and Kassy..sigh..

Uchida is great as the energetic, exuberant Kumiko Yoshikawa, but beyond that there's really not much to offer.

If you're in the mood for something sweet and simple this will probably do the trick.

A nice, sweet bit of fluff. This series teaches two lessons. One: Suicide isn't the answer! If things get tough, smile bigger and work harder. And Two: Yuki Uchida is a babe.

Yuki Uchida's smile is powerful! makes my day!

watched this show coz of Kassy... and was not disappointed. he can really act! and he manged to get out of the usual "cold-on-the-outside-kind-in-the-inside" role.... and he is no longer the victim in love... really interesting role for him.

and its indeed amazing to have an airport like the one protrayed in the show. wonderful service, and a lot of values learnt from each episode.

love kassy's megawatt smile and his "baka"!

2 thumbs up for this show!
