Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I like how the crew made rounds hourly to provide drinks and ensure we are good! Also appreciated when they were able to accommodate last minute meal changes!!"
Pros: "The crew was polite, responsive and friendly. The food was very good and served hot. For a flight to Japan, I thought $1,000 round trip direct from Boston was an excellent price considering you got 2 complete meals and additional snacks. Much more than I expected. Would fly Japan Airlines again."
Cons: "I don't think there was much that could have been improved. The seats were as comfortable as could be expected when paying an economy price."

Pros: "Polite service, comfortable flight, no delays"
Pros: "Staff- the ladies in flight were very friendly and courteous."
Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day.

Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant. They were very accommodating as well."
Cons: "For my entire flight back I was so hot I could hardly stand it. I had to change my clothes and it still didn't help very much.

Pros: "Japan airport is big and too much shopping needs to be done, and liked the fact that boarding started just 15 minutes before departure which gave me ample amount of time."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't the greatest. The mid-flight meal was a burger instead of the beloved ramen."
Pros: "Service & Food"
Cons: "Flight from Taipei to Tokyo was delayed and ultimately cancelled because of "mechanical failure". Many passengers on the flight including us had international connections through Tokyo, with only an hour between flights. It was clear we were all going to miss this connection, but in a frantic and haphazard way, the JAL crew's only solution at the gate was just to get us all on the next flight out to Tokyo (I believe via China Air) no matter what our individual final destinations were. They said "from Narita, they will handle all your connections to your final destination." This was a bizarre solution. Why not reroute us individually on other partner airlines, through other countries/cities, from this international airport in Taipei, like airlines usually do? (Also, all of this disorganized communication by the JAL crew at the gate was never translated into English, I just happen to speak a little mandarin and was able to understand what they were directing us to do). My wife was the one who searched for an alternative route on her phone (through HK instead of Tokyo) via their partner airline Cathay pacific and showed it to the JAL rep at the transfer counter, and through a series of radio and phone calls, only then did they say "there might be seats left", but they couldn't book the seats for us there. In order to make the flight, we had to sprint ourselves to a completely different terminal and concourse to another transfer counter to finally book our seats on this Cathay flight. Needless to say, our luggage did not get pulled from JAL in time to make it on the Cathay flights, so we are waiting 2-3 days for them to hopefully be found and sent to us. Overall, I was completely disappointed by the JAL staff, who didn't take responsibility or ownership of the situation, and who's solution to just fly everyone out to Tokyo, no matter our final destination, and to leave us to figure out our connections there was extremely short-sighted and irresponsible, and was a total disservice to their customers. I expect much more from this airline. On another note, we flew JAL from Boston to Tokyo, and Tokyo to Taipei: the food was terrible and food options were really subpar for an international flight, I would've expected much better from JAL and the dreamliner flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants are really kind and patient."
Pros: "good selection of movies and audio, responsive and caring service crew. Plane cabin was clean and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "Passengers in front alway lowered their seats and the amount of space to move for someone over 6 feet made the flight uncomfortable. the woman in front of me was short too so I did not understand her need to push her seat back. The seats should not the ability to be lowered to the extent they were. It makes for an uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "The service was great. Some of the food was great. I like the snacks they give out on Japan airlines."
Cons: "The dinner wasn't so good. I think they could use some improvement in that area"

I will still highly recommend Singapore Airlines to other people."

Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."

Pros: "everything, excellent job"
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."

Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""

Cons: "Crew on flight back to philly not as helpful"
Cons: "Food variety"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Staff were helpful, pleasant, and attentive. Really appreciated that due to the length of my layover in Doha, I was given a hotel room - which I hadn't asked for, and which Qatar Airlines personnel told me I might be able to get, and then arranged or me. That's excellent service!"
Cons: "I wish NO ONE's seat tipped back - space is already tight, and if everyone just stayed in their own space rather than tipping seats aback, everyone would have more room! Once the person in front has leaned their seat back, it's impossible to really use the tray, which is pretty frustrating."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "I think that my review and comments about the first portion of the flight apply equally to the second portion of the flight. Despite my criticism of the food, the flight attendant service was above expectations."

Cons: "Food - very mediocre and felt like each meal was similar"
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."

Pros: "Excellent service on all 6 legs of the itinerary. Great selection of food and wine and entertainment. Superb seating layout in business."
Cons: "Frankly nothing!"
Pros: "Amicable staff"
Cons: "Baggage was damaged. They seemed to be running low on vegetarian food (despite having selected so online) - I was compensated never the less."
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."
Cons: "It was a confusing boarding procedure. We were sorted into zones, but boarded late. So, folks tried to get on all at once. We were in zone 1, and should have been the first economy on, but others just pushed past."
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "1- Flight from Delhi to Doha was very late, which made it chaotic for us to catch our connection at Doha 2- Entertainment choices were very limited"

Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "We love to fly again in Emirat"
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "On such a long flight from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal! Way to narrow, not enough distance to seat in front of you, seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get needed rest, no footrest & way overcrowded. Although the price was good, we truly suffered on this trip."
Pros: "I like the crew."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was good, one little thing, just had to wait for crew member to respond to the bell."
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Cons: "Laptop bags are not allowed at New Delhi Airport. Only one carry on is allowed with no laptop bag. These are not Emirates policies. New Delhi airport has its own policies. Highly frustrating at that moment because these are not the baggage allowances anywhere else in the world"
Cons: "Crew was a little less cooperative than my usual Emirates experiences"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"
Cons: "Didn’t like behavior of Dubai airport’s staff. They were too rude and Newark wheelchairs helper were asking for too much tips. Are they allowed to ask for tips and speak rudely with senior citizens. Please give attention towards these problems"
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Pros: "Cabin crew was courteous. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding we haphazard."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was not so great"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Nothing as such."
Pros: "Friendly crew and more leg room on the Emirates flights"
Cons: "Passengers that leave the bathrooms dirty with urine on the floor etc. Not sure what the airline can do about that during the flights. But for longer flights maybe a damp mop or something along those lines would be helpful."
Cons: "Food was not tasty or interesting."
Pros: "Low cholesterol meal was quiet good"
Cons: "Seats on the 777 are very uncomfortable, even more we you have a flight as long as DXB->BOS"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."
Cons: "In this flight the flight attendant thought she was doing us a favour,although seated in 26F,preference of food was finished,there was no Pepsi,and felt I was treated badly because of my color and dress mode."
Pros: "Comfy seats with good legroom, huge entertainment selection, free alcoholic beverages!"
Cons: "My connecting flight (booked through Emirates but operated by JetBlue) was inexplicably cancelled with 24h notice. Emirates did a good job finding me an alternative flight but somehow did not get my bags on my new flight even though the woman at the counter made a special call to "ensure" that my bags would come with me. Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."
Cons: "The crew hardly paid attention to request. I had to ping multiple times and wait for really long time to get a glass of water. I tried to get to the back, the crew dint even move to help us with anything. They sat together and were talking and dint even care to move. I have never seen this amount of careless attitude so far in emirates. Food quality has gone down quite a bit compared to my travel before."
Pros: "Great service, food can be improved. Stop serving pizza it is not healthy and not appropriate for half the passengers"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, 1 of my baggage was missed and due to that connecting flight from Boston to Newark was missed. There were no more flights to Newark so I was put up in flight to JFK after 3 hours of wait."
Pros: "Staff is very attentive and always around. I am not a fan of instant coffee, but I got a cup of coffee when I asked for one outside of "meal times". The leg room is good, though I could still use a little extra."
Cons: "I wish the crew asked all passengers to reset their seat upright when food is served. I am quite tall and having the person in front of me recline is uncomfortable at all times, but while eating, there just isn't very much elbow room. Also the temperature in the cabin is really too cold. The entertainment system uses a two-prong plug for the headset, which requires you to bring an adapter if you want to use your own noise-blocking headset or headphones."
Cons: "need more movies boarding started before the stated date, told me to go to 3 separate counters to change my seat and it didn't even end up working out"
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Pros: "I love the fact that the crew is quite so international -- and that they all wear small flag pins to tell you where they come from! They were very good with the children -- and I loved the fact tht they came round and took polaroid photos of passengers - particularly the families!"
Pros: "Overall ok, food n entertainment was good"
Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"
Pros: "Aircrafts are new and good"
Cons: "The ground staff needs to be more co-ordial and friendly. Am not sure how they are hired but they appear very rude and dry throwing instructions. I travel a lot and in many airlines and whatever the case, staff members of other airlines smile, tell issues if any, suggest solutions and work on it. Emirates staff, it seems, does not know how to talk or smile."
Cons: "There was a group of teenagers sitting in 8 seats in two of the middle rows right next to me. They spent the whole flight climbing all over the seats and each other. They were very loud, often banging into other passenger's seats, and leaving their stuff in the aisle where people were tripping over things as they walked by. They were really inconsiderate of other passengers - many of whom were trying to sleep on a 13-hour flight. It would have been nice if the crew would have told them to be quieter and more respectful of other passengers."
Cons: "Could not get comfortable and (while it doesn't reflect on the airline) all the screaming children I could have done without"
Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse. No kit was given which includes brush, paste, eye covering band. Last time I travelled from Boston to Dubai the food was completely frozen and now this!"
Cons: "Delhi to dbx was uncomfortable & they have changed our seat without any warning"
Pros: "In flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Had requested for wheel chair assistance but was denied saying everyone was " too busy". When the passenger stated she cannot go without help, the flight attendant helped her out and to a bus. She almost fell while getting on to the bus. Assistance was requested because of her poor eye sight on the left eye and issues with mobility because of that. Although I'm glad nothing bad happened, denial of assistance and making her feel concerned and speak for herself for someone to help could have been avoided if Emirates could keep their promised support. Very disappointed."
Pros: "My ankle was fractured and the crew (both at the desk and in the plane were very supportive. My experience was better in India (as Delhi airport) than in Dubai and Boston."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The hand luggage compartment of the aircraft makes terrifying noises during turbulence like it is going to drop on one's head during the flight. It should be fixed."
Cons: "Again the same indifferent attitude by cabin crew towards student gustes and particularly females. I was sick on the fligt despite informing crew no care was taken. I lost one of my check inn bag airline is indifferent. No help or compensation."
Pros: "Crew very professional. Fare for flight very reasonable."
Cons: "Had 90 minutes fr connection, 30 min delay so 1 hr left. Had to walk walk and walk for nearly 1 hr to barely make it. Airport is TERRIBLE in terms of going from gate to gate- loong walks with no moving walkways. Train is a joke covering very short distance. Once arrived in Boston, took 1hr before luggage started unloading, and then to find out our 4 bags didn't come at all. Staff on ground not courteous, wouldn't send bags to home town in Raleigh. Had to wait till afternoon to get the bags and then fly to final destination. Entertainment system very bad, audio/video stop and go, stop and go- really terrible (though notice some people's screens were working fine)."
Pros: "Food is great"
Cons: "Service is good"
Pros: "Food and entertainment seemed a bit upscale."
Cons: "Young air hostesses with a bit of attitude. Wouldn't talk, just shake their heads in a weird way, to ask about what I wanted to drink or eat. None of my luggage made it."
Pros: "Boarding and space were great because I paid extra for it."
Cons: "One attendant seemed to be in training. Or perhaps she should've been. Everyone needs to learn but it doesn't boost your confidence in a flying experience when the crew member making the announcements keeps getting things jumbled."
Pros: "The entertainment was outstanding and the boarding was quick. The flight attendants were helpful to those who didn't know how to find their row due to either a first time flyer, couldn't read or whatever else they did work fast to help them find their seat. I liked how they took care of giving things to the children to play with or color before taking off. Some of the flight attendants were engaging and smiled, most of them though didn't look happy to be working. I understand how long the flight is but while at work one must always keep smiling and be professional."
Cons: "Bathroom was dirty, out of paper, I cleaned the paper all around the sink, etc. There was garbage on the floors in the hallway that staff walked over. A few of the crew were excellent, others never smiled, just were in their own world, garbage was not picked up often enough. Perhaps someone could come with a garbage bag and instead of zooming by and missing half the people who have garbage actually take a moment to look at each person in the row to see if they have stuff to contribute to the trash bag. On two occasions I had my hands full and the girl walked right by me. The pizza that was served was cold and not very tasty. I am sure if it was hot it would have ben much better."
Cons: "Flight crew is great!"
Pros: "Very courteous crew and seats are comfortable."
Cons: "For an economy seat it’s good enough for me."
Pros: "Good food, great seats, nice movies"
Cons: "Offer water once more, later on in the flight"
Cons: "The flight was very full, but overall; good service and on-time performance!!"
Pros: "The whole travel experience on Asiana is great from easy check in to great onboard crew, food and service."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, best airline i have ever flown hands down. Best food, best service best everything."
Cons: "An airplane that has aisles every two rows so you never have to ask people to get up to go use the bathroom."
Pros: "Crew was great. I have flown on Asiana a few times before and they are always good. The Korean meal is the best airplane food I have had."
Cons: "More movie choices. Game choices and cartoon series for kids"
Cons: "More flexible seat"
Pros: "Great crew and food."
Cons: "Limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Check in staff were good. We departed on time."
Cons: "Better if they could provide maybe nuts I flight but if not, it's still all good for an hour flight.."
Pros: "(Business class) Friendly, helpful crew. Very good food and a pretty comfortable and adjustable seat that was great for two passengers travelling together."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was a bit outdated."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable and remote panel for adjustment was too hard to manage plus entertainment remote was unless. I think plane is too outdated. Wear and tear cave seem throughout the plane interior"
Cons: "It was cancelled. There was no proactive communication from Kayak or Asiana about the situation. We had to cancel and rebook ourselves."
Pros: "Excellent ethnic Korean food. Attendants were extremely polite and and professional."
Pros: "Staff and flight crew were all really nice, very professional and attentive. Decent range of video/movies available. 2 meals - ok"
Cons: "Delays on both legs of flight- significant and multiple delays from jfk to icn... made the experience not so great, as my daughters 1st time flying this didn't help - and no compensation at all. Emails and notifications not in english! Not given an actual reason for flight delay. Seats VERY uncomfortable, might as well be no cushioning on the seats in economy. With such long flights you would think that an airline would want even economy to be somewhat comfortable sitting for 14hrs or more"
Pros: "Upgrade to business class"
Cons: "No alcohol"
Pros: "Great airline staff, good food, smooth flight."
Cons: "Fewer movie selections than other airlines. Would have liked a small pouch of personal kit—toothbrush, eye mask, etc."
Pros: "charming & efficient staff"
Pros: "The check in staff, boarding staff and flight attendants were very kind and accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "We departed both legs of the flight - from Manila to Seoul, and Seoul to LA - about an hour late. That’s inexcusable! The food on both flights was adequate but certainly not tasty or delicious."
Pros: "The attendants were very nice and the food and drinks service was good."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "More variety in foods available would be nice but whatever we did have was good."
Pros: "Crew friendly and approachable."
Cons: "Food was okay, but that crew should have condiments handy when requested and not have to go retrieve in pantry which takes some time"
Pros: "By whatever reasons, the ventilation system at one of chamber was out of work and the cabin was so hot that keeping swearing all over the flight.... The general English level of flight attendant or ground crew are not good and can’t response on non-standard question. Quite hard to communicate."
Pros: "No entertainment at bulk head"
Pros: "Great service and meals"
Cons: "The food was worst food we had in any flight. I highly suggest try giving to humans first before offering to someone on 11 hrs flights. Its almost like prepared for animals."
Pros: "Chair to chair distance is spacious."
Pros: "The flight from Seoul to Los Angeles was less than 10 hours. Asiana crew professionalism and courtesy are always excellent."
Cons: "The long layover in Seoul-Incheon airport."
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway for more than 7 hrs with "mechanical problems" was to much!! Than getting off & told to wait from 8pm till 3am for next flight had to sleep on the airport floor!! Was told we couldn't leave because no one to check us in at 3am! I'm only 10min away from airport!! Then when I finally got to Manila they left my bags in Korea! I had to wait till midnight before I could get my bags!! So i couldn't get a flight to a smaller island I was heading to! To meet friends they totally screwed my vacation!!"
Pros: "Everything! Service awesome"
Pros: "I enjoyed having a larger screen for my personal in-flight entertainment. It was much better than on the 777."
Cons: "The seat was noticeably less comfortable on the A330 compared with the 777. The breakfast meal was pretty bad."
Pros: "Overrall Experience was very good. I told my other family members to always buy the tickets for Asiana airlines. Very Friendly staff."
Pros: "When checking in, the agent upgraded me to an exit row for free, which Asiana sells as a "preferred" seat. The legroom was phenomenal and the seat next to me remained empty. I was in the first row of the economy cabin, so I was the first to get served during the meal time and the first to have the trash collected. The seat was comfortable and had ample padding, even though the armrests could not move due to being in the exit row."
Cons: "When boarding, there is just one huge line with the entire flight lined up. Myself and a few other passengers just waited around the gate area until final call and then boarded, avoiding having to stand in the line that stretched to the next gate. The aircraft was an non-refurbished A330, featuring the old TV screens that showed entertainment in a loop. Good enough for a 2 hour flight, but any longer and AVOD would have been nice. Flight was delayed for 1 hour, we landed 1 hour late, but I still had enough time to make my connection."
Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "Lost my bag."
Pros: "Nice plane very smooth new"
Cons: "Limited movies selection Staff does not smile much"
Cons: "Could use a little more movies."
Pros: "Korean food options were very good, crew were courteous, boarding was quick even with full flights and delays."
Cons: "Entertainment options extremely lacking. No options to choose films on 12+ hour flight Seats very firm and recline very far, which is a problem for person sitting behind."
Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "The flight from Korea to San Francisco was so late more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Everything's was excelent. I was happy to chosen Asiana Airline"
Pros: "The food was decent for airline food, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Way too much turbulence. Not sure if this was due to being at the back of the plane or if the weather was bad, but it was constant and very jarring. For a 12 hour flight this makes things extremely uncomfortable. Also the plane was a little older and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. The in flight entertainment system was also hard to use, unresponsive touch screen and strange little remote. Additionally we sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for flight documentation. This not only caused us to miss our bus once we arrived at our final destination, but also added another hour to an already very long flight. The captain was not very forthcoming with information about the delay. Overall the experience was unpleasant and I don't look forward to having to repeat it."
Pros: "Crew was nice and competent"
Cons: "Cabin lights went on three quarters into the flight and wouldn't go out and there wasn't enough water"
Cons: "No good Korean movies to watch."
Cons: "Seemed like no air conditioning -- very hot the whole trip. Food was very poor -- glad we ate prior."
Cons: "Bought it 4 hrs before and it never turned into a ticket."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Flight was delayed 3 hrs. Not enough movie and TV selections."
Pros: "Seats were decent, customer service was good, flight was on time"
Cons: "Food was great!"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "There is so much of delaying and layover"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time They sent the luggage to the hotel first thing in the morning, which had come by the next flight."
Cons: "Luggage didn't make the connection."
Cons: "Change Flight cost too much"
