Cons: "I didn't realized we were on a code share flight from Seoul to Hanoi until we got to check in counter and they couldn't issue boarding pass even though it was a through check in for till Hanoi. In our booking itinerary it was printed as Korean air with a small print that said operated by jinair. It wasn't so bad but the hassle of going to another terminal to board and being in a smaller aircraft after a long flight wasn't the best."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Pros: "Flight staff/crew were the best. And them planes top notch condition and amenities."
Cons: "Anytime I looked to get help from there non-fight staff (customer service, reservation personnel,etc.) I found them rude, short and unhelpful."

Pros: "Nothing our tickets had to be cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled with Korean air. We attempted to check in multiple times with issues on the Korean air website. we called and they told us not to worry. Finally, approximately 12 hours before departure we wwere able to check in Only to find out due to the expiration date of our passport we would not be an allowed to check in. We scrambled to get an emergency passport, however by the time it was received we had already missed our flight. Korean air is not willing to aknowledge this as a fault in their system and is instead suggesting this is a kayak issue for allowing us to purchase these flights. I would like the total flight cost refunded as this should never have been allowed to be purchased if Korean air knew at the time of purchase when checking in there would be an issue."

Pros: "My first time to fly with Korean Air and I would not hesitate to fly with Korean Air again. The plane has a lot of leg room, aisle is not cramp to move around. It was a long flight, but the flight attendants made it worthwhile. They were very attentive to your needs with exceptional service. The food selection was good. Overall the best flight I've ever had flying overseas."
Cons: "Maybe the chair in economy can be a lot more comfortable. Chair is sturdy lack of cushion and back support. People like me who has mobility limitation and bad lower back is difficult coz it adds more discomfort on my end. Hopefully, one day the chair can be more comfortable."

Cons: "Nothing! I wish I won't see things not to like in my future flights with them."

Cons: "My ticket did not have the boarding gate number and information send me to the wrong gate and I missed my flight, I had to wait for another 10 hours for the next flight and I was told that I must pay $120, after long negociation, staff waived the fees but I had to wait for more than 10 hours at airport and missing my flight and everything connected to it."

Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "In flight map display, food, power outlets, seat size/space, good movie choices"
Pros: "Most people sleep as this is a connection from other long flights."
Pros: "There was a delay in taking off from SFO but the attendants worked very hard at getting everyone on board and taken care of. I missed my connecting flight in Seoul because of the delay, but the attendant let me know well before that I would miss the flight. In Seoul they took me to their very nice Hyatt hotel where I stayed the night and they offered me a very excellent buffet dinner at no cost."
Cons: "There was plenty of confusion with the ground crew in Seoul and I was lost trying to find my way to the station where I could find another flight to Hanoi. However, as soon as I found the Korean Air station, they took very good care of me."
Pros: "Collectively, my new wife and I have travelled through dozens of different airlines, including 8-10 international flights, and our journey with Korean Air was the best flight experience we have ever had. The staff was so attentive, the selection of Korean music, and the access to movies, and the comfort of even Economy class was fantastic. Despite the long hours spent on board, Korean Air made it as comfortable as possible. We especially loved the hot towels, and the stickers that allowed the flight attendants to note if we wanted to be woken for meals, or left to sleep!"
Cons: "We have no complaints. Everything was just lovely."

Pros: "Great service, decent legroom in economy"
Cons: "Language barrier was to be expected"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Food is terrible. Boarding was late, late taking off, late parking at gate that caused many of us missing our connection flight. Terrible experience with Korean airlines."
Pros: "The boarding went smoothly considering the number of people on board. It took a while to take off and to land, but that's because the airports are busy. The crew was incredibly well dressed in professional attire. The accommodations were amazing - the flight came with the standard pillow/blanket combo, disposable slippers, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, a snack, drinks, and the attendants dimmed the lights whenever they weren't serving - all free. The entertainment was amazing - I watched four Hollywood movies that I had been wanting to watch, and that was one section of the movies. There were also TV series and music available, both in English and Korean."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the crew's attention, especially from the center seat while speaking English. One of the meals gave me terrible gas, which was uncomfortable for me and my seat mates."

Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."
Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"

Cons: "Movie selection was not so good No Wifi inbound or outbound 777 Almost nonstop babies crying the whole flight Seat selection on the website is not user friendly, and you cannot get seats books until 72 hours before flight and usually 9 out of 10 times I find I cannot find 2 seats together until airport checkin."

Cons: "The lunch part at the end was a little late we had just had a snack and a small sandwich so we didn't eat a lot. But food was great!"
Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."
Pros: "Flight was full but crew was attentive and very pleasant. Star Alliance Lounge at LAX had a good variety of food and drinks - Asian, western, small bites, snacks; red, white, bubbly and even a bartender who'll mix up cocktails. I love flying SQ."
Cons: "For a premium economy service, it was really good."
Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"
Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"
Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Pros: "They treated you like you were important and really took care of my every need"
Cons: "Getting on a cattle car to go to another terminal and then get in line again to go on the plane"

Cons: "We stopped in Korea for two hours, that was not listed on my original itinerary. Then we were late to get to Singapore. My seat was very very small and I was seated next to two very large ppl."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "Nothing"
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"
Cons: "The seat's recline button was broken which meant having to sit for 12+ hours upright. Upon hearing that the seat was broken, the airline crew offered my mother a check for 100 SGD (14% of the ticket value) to be used on Singapore airlines (for the discomfort caused for over 50% of the flight time). They changed her seat from Seoul to Singapore. When I wrote to them about it, they came back saying they had offered her a seat change from LA to Singapore, and she had declined, which is absolutely false. When I called that out, they said, maybe they did not offer aisle seats (note that the broken seat was not aisle). So it just shows that they don't want to accept that they messed up. They even told me that despite their best efforts in pre-flight checks, certain defects only surface when the flight is in progress. Will never ever travel on this airline again."
Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."
Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."
Pros: "Friendly attentive staff. Excell ent food and great. Service."
Cons: "Really crowded seats in economy."
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."
Pros: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable. There was ample entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Lost our luggage that full with our winter clothing for the trip singapore airlines delivered to our hotel the next day and compensate us ¥jpn 12000"
Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."
Pros: "Food and good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"
Pros: "I liked there was an opportunity to bid on an upgrade"
Cons: "Our bid was rejected yet there were empty seats in premium economy. Our bid was within the recommended range. You certainly would not have lost money upgrading us."
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: "Excellent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"
Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
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: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."
Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "This is not related to the flight itself, but EVA could do a better job of communicating useful information on its website. Because of covid 19, Taiwan recently banned foreigners from entering Taiwan. I was concerned that this might affect my travel plans since I needed to change planes in Taipei. A clarification of this policy on EVA's website would have been VERY helpful, especially since their phone lines were completely overwhelmed."
Pros: "great service, great food."
Cons: "I wanted to try the internet but wasn't able to get it to work. I was tired and I did not ask for help though."
Cons: "Keep doing same things"
Cons: "Flight delays is never appreciated."
Pros: "The Eva aircrew provided excellent service and were very attentive. They provided a blanket, small pillow and earbuds for the TVs. There was a great selection of current TV shows, movies and music to keep you entertained. There were 3 meals on my flight and they were all decent."
Cons: "The seats were decently comfortable, but given that this was a longer flight I wish there was a little bit more cushion. I also wish that there were some vegetarian food options."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding takes too long, we delayed the departure. A guy wears Eva uniform in white, was a bit rude on directing passengers at boarding gate."
Cons: "Good airline"
Pros: "The crew was very nice & efficient"
Pros: "Everyghing"
Pros: "The crew were great the food was nice."
Cons: "seats 26A and 27A are terrible seats. The seat divider is 4-5 inches wide and protrudes in to the footwell. When the passenger in the forward seat places his seat all of the way back. It is almost impossible for the person in these seats to get out to the aisle."
Cons: "The delay with boarding time caused me to almost miss my connecting flight in Taipei, where my checked bag was also delayed and did not check through concurrently with me."
Pros: "It was a quick flight to my home country!"
Pros: "Friendliest staff constantly. Dwarfs other airlines in service performance. Great entertainment and comfort. Quality food. And don’t be afraid to ask for more of anything."
Cons: "Our gate required taking a shuttle to the plane and that is not ideal"
Pros: "I have flown Eva Airlines twice now for a few trips to Asia. The service and experience was great. I would highly recommend."
Pros: "Good service and flight attendants. I paid extra for exit row seats and I'm glad I did on a flight this long (13+ hours). I think that probably made a huge difference (six feet tall). Boarding was extremely orderly."
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "good service as expected."
Pros: "We sat in the emergency row and had endless legroom. The blankets and pillows were good quality. Food was great! Crew was very attentive. Bathrooms were amazingly clean."
Cons: "We didn’t know how to access the entertainment."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Booked/ paid/ and got refused to fly by Evaair as they and Justfly didn’t process the ticket properly even after received money for a month. And they left all the stress to customer had to book another flight at the airport."
Pros: "Even though the flight was only about 3 hours long, we were fed a full meal and shown a movie."
Pros: "Food was fresh and tasty. Games and movies made the time go faster. Extra leg room made sitting easier"
Cons: "If meal times were posted, it would be easier to plan. Sleeping and snacking"
Pros: "I like the food and entertainment. But they should served drinks more often as possible rather than waiting for the customer to ask for it."
Pros: "2 free meals, attendants were very nice and ready to serve, free wine and multiple coffee and tea and drink calls. Also the flight was cheaper than most, which credits all the previous feedback provided."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Trip was pretty nice."
Pros: "Flying economy across the Pacific on Eva isn't exceptional, but given the ticket price, it is."
Cons: "The food is acceptable but not exceptional. I appreciated the free wine."
Cons: "The crew are not that friendly. And I cannot understand the pilot or the announcements being said on the PA system."
Pros: "Great flight Staff friendly"
Cons: "Lost mini suitcase (was found and delivered within 24hrs) Broken wheels on bigger suitcase"
Pros: "Everyone was super super welcoming and accommodating. My favorite part was them not waking me up for a meal, instead they left me a sticker to call whenever I’m ready to eat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was on time and people were friendly. The pilot communicated with the passengers when there was turbulence which I appreciate"

Cons: "Food was kind of bland, not living up to the level I experienced on the first leg. No personalized entertainment systems."
Pros: "Had to request a wheelchair at the last minute. Staff was swift and courteous. During the flight it was rather bumpy so drink/snack service wasn't as often. Flight attendants were minimally invasive for safety belt checks. Food was decent. For the price I paid, at the last minute, I cannot complain."
Cons: "Wait for wheelchair was rather long. But it's holiday season and it's last minute so it's to be expected."
Pros: "Flying EVA is always a great experience. This time no different. Elite cLass is very much worth the extra cost."

Pros: "Food and service was exemplary."
Cons: "Seats are smaller than US standard."
Cons: "Extremely packed for a 14+ hour-long flight, my seat and it's surrounding smelled. No slippers in the seat pocked. Entre has been improved, but the honeydew tasted old. Flight attendants didn't offer drinks to the window passengers generally during the non- meal hours. The flight was so long , there hasn't been much comfort improved for the seats and overall in the past 15 years."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The man next to me took up a lot of room with his arms."
Cons: "Too long. No ones fault."
Pros: "Plane was clean, service was prompt, and staff were very friendly and accommodating. food served was far better than meals served on other airlines."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats were roomy."
Pros: "I like the service, I felt that it was genuine and with care. They made the long flight seems short."

Pros: "Check in was great, the staff is very helpful and gives you the best attention."
Pros: "Staff is alright."
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book so 2 or 3 months early but I can't even choose my own seat in the front row. After my connection from taipei to Vietnam they don't even put me and my husband sit together."
Pros: "Spacious economy seats, tasty airline food. Professional crew and staff"
Cons: "LAX boarding area was cramped but this was probably not an EVA Air issue but more a LAX airport issue. Had NO idea Tom Bradley even had such cramped gates"
Pros: "Great service from check in and boarding to in-flight service and arrivals."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Exact time"

Cons: "Seriously, nothing. It was great!"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and met my expectations."
Cons: "I flew on 4 separate planes and each one of them had noticeable issues with cracked interior components and torn materials. My seat was reassigned at check-in from the one I has selected 2 months earlier without notifying me. I went from a window seat to an aisle set for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "The food and the service"
Cons: "I’m regarded as disabled, usually I have TSA pre-check privilege in most of the airline I took before but unfortunately, I couldn’t get any from Asiana. The guy helped me on checking in told me that AsIan’s didn’t provide this service to the customer. I felt not quite happy but ok with this. The one made me feel upset is they didn’t give me pre-boarding even though they already noticed that I’m disabled. I needed to wait on the line for over 25 minutes, my left leg very tired. I can walk but I can’t stand for long time, it hurts my back and leg. I got almost same style Vegetarian food in both dinner and breakfast, all vegetables, no tofu at all."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Very limited options for food and entertainment. It is not the top-tier experience like Cathay or Singapore airlines. A good tier-2 airlines."
Pros: "Tons of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving San Francisco, connecting flight from Seoul to Manila was also late. Service was okay. Entertainment okay."
Pros: "It was 12hrs."
Pros: "Great airline staff, good food, smooth flight."

Pros: "Food was good, friendly service"
Cons: "Movies were not good, not enough selection"
Pros: "I love the friendliness of Asiana Airlines crew. I know I will have what I need to travel comfortably."
Pros: "Good food and services"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The comfort of seats and leg room. Professional staff, excellent cuisine."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite.."
Cons: "I liked everything .."
Pros: "I loved the leg room and the pleasant classical music that was playing during boarding and exiting."
Cons: "I didn’t realize some of the food was going to be so spicy. Perhaps a bit of a warning next time would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Delicious food"
Pros: "I appreciated the food and service from the stewardesses was great. The red embroidered apron was a nice touch."
Cons: "My luggage was late, and I did not receive it until 24 hours after I landed in Hanoi. This caused a big inconvenience. I had packed my things very carefully, and most of what I needed the first day was in there."
Pros: "very attentive and kind hearted flight attendants, asiana airline always gives me the best impression and satisfying flight experience always. Thank you always!"
Cons: "the aircraft I was in supposedly provide wifi service, however I could not connect to it,tried and checked several times during the flight,it was not available. Except that part,every other parts:perfect!"
Pros: "The large leg space/room!"
Cons: "The food was limited and it's actually not that good."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Toothbrushes/paste and mouthwash were provided in flight restrooms. Staff frequently came by and checked on passengers with drinks or snacks to ensure optimum comfort. Flight staff boarded the plane swiftly while also greeting each passenger warmly. In flight meals were great. Flight was short which was happy."
Pros: "The service was top-notch, and so was the food. On my flight from San Francisco to Korea, things were just fine, Though I wish I had the window seat that was actually adjacent to the window, and not separated from the window by a desk/table arrangement. Aside from that, everything was grand."
Cons: "The flight from Korea to Bangkok was a different story. The seats resembled those you would find in premium economy on other airlines. While the food and service were good, the entertainment was abysmal. Basically, you were watching TV with poor quality reception and no ability to choose what you wanted to watch other than flipping through the channels to see what was already on. Although this was nearly a seven hour international flight, The entertainment package felt like something you would encounter on a cheap charter bus to Vegas. If I knew this was the aircraft I would be taking, I would never have booked on Asiana. The flight to Bangkok was really substandard."
Pros: "Staff were excellent. They're the big part of the reason why we fly Asiana. American-owned airlines are rude, old and crabby."
Cons: "The food was hit or miss. Our first meal was ok. 2nd meal was just a sandwich which is not that great. The 3rd meal which was chicken was dry and tasteless. My husband and I couldn't eat it. It's like eating a styrofoam cup."
Pros: "i think asiana is one of the best airline in market for their professional services. thanks."
Pros: "Everything. It was comfortable, the flight attendants were attentive. Before the flight, I was moved to a better seat because I require wheelchair assistance."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Cons: "Time delay."
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: "I liked being seated toward the back of the plane so that me and my cat had some privacy. The crew was very polite and gave me thorough instructions for transporting my cats."
Cons: "I bought a carrier for my cat that fit the airline's specifications, but it didn't fit all the way under the seat. Because of this, I had to put my cat in the overhead bin during takeoff. This gave me and my cat a lot of stress, although they let me take her out during the landing. Also I thought the airline would open much earlier than my flight so that I could ensure the safe transfer of my pet-in-cargo."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Plane clean, food not great but decent. Takeoff right on tme."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no leg room, made for a long, uncomfortable 11 hour flight. Small selection of movies."
Pros: "The gluten free meal was much better on this flight and the ladies were pleasant as usual."
Cons: "Less entertainment offerings compared to our 10hr flight but other than that, all went well."
Pros: "Asiana service"
Cons: "Old plane. Small screens and worn out fixtures."
Pros: "Very comfortable, good service. Only thing I didn't like was the way they do the entertainment system. You change "channels" and to watch the thing you want you have to find it and then rewind to the beginning. The music channels loop after about 6 songs."
Pros: "The attendants are super nice."
Cons: "I do not like the time of departure. People can still work if the flight is at night and not at 1230PM."
Pros: "Crews are very attentive and great with their service!s. Way better than many big Asia airlines!"
Cons: "The plane OZ 211 is so old and the entertainment system is very very old! The seats aren't very comfortable either!"
Cons: "I don't have the exact flight times but flight from Seattle to Korea was suppose to arrive in Korea at around 18:00 and leave for Ho Chi Ming at 19:00. It arrived after 18:00, boarding was suppose to be at 18:40 but by the time I was able to get on the rail to the main station it was 18:40. Luckly a crew member had a sign and was calling out "HCMC". Luckily I am in good shape because we ran through the airport to the next connection as they were getting ready to close the plane doors. Need to have someone walk and time, the time of arrival from Seattle into Korea, onto the rail, to the main station and distance to gate 40. You may very well miss your flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff"
Cons: "Food was just okay No power outlets in economy seats Short delay"
Pros: "The cabin was surprisingly warm unlike other airlines I've been on. They also provided nice toiletries in the bathroom like face toner and mouth wash."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable especially for such a long flight"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew were very attentive and personally escorted us to our connecting flight to make sure we made it on time, as our first flight was delayed. Decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Flight 1 hour delayed. Seat is kinda hard."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew were very polite and kind."
Cons: "There wasnt anything i didn't like."
Pros: "Everything was Ok. I appreciate Asiana airline. When I was stuck in Air port for 8hours, they saved me. I had a lot of luggages at that time. Because I would go back Korea. They were so nice and helped me quckily."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Entertainment - difficult to find movie channel guide"
Cons: "UNITED CONTINENTAL SERVICE GOT ME TO HOUSTON ALIVE. BUT EVERYTHING ABOUT THE TERMINAL AT SFO TO THE AIRPLANE (A 320) AND SERVICE ON BOARD ARE VERY DISAPPOINTING AND I DREAD MY RETURN FLIGHT."
Cons: "Flight attendants were inattentive & plane was dirty"
