Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Once it was finally fixed, the paperwork had a mess up. We didn't leave until at least 2:52 pm. Then, when we landed, the elevator for the luggage that was valeted stopped working for 4 minutes. I was nearly late to my connection to Paris. Instead of a 1 hr 55 min layover in DFW, I had 7 minutes from the time I finally got my suitcase to the time I got to the other terminal to board."
Pros: "Service in Club World was excellent. Good food and comfortable seat."
Cons: "The seats alternate facing forwards/backwards, so, if you're traveling alone, you're face to face with a stranger. It's OK if your traveling with your spouse.

The return flight, 10 days later, also had problems with the IFE"
Pros: "The on-board entertainment system is great."
Cons: "Flight attendants were speedy and sometimes only perfunctorily polite. One continued to pour coffee during extreme turbulence and poured it all over my knee.

In turbulence the problem was compounded."
Pros: "Good and on time flight. Loved the information given by all crews."
