Pros: "The cabin crew are the most professional and beautiful in the airline business."

I came back 1 hour later and asked if I'm still in the right place sand when my flight would be boarding. They again said come back in 1 hour.

Cons: "the cabin temperature was a little hot. The staff tunred it down after i asked, but even then it was still a bit warm for me. People who are cold can put on blankets or jackets, but people who are hot can't remove clothing, so i think a lower standard temperature setting would be nice."

Cons: "Sitting down 12 hrs it was very painful to be sitting that long. My seat eould heat up and it was uncomfortable also. I couldn't sleep during the flight"

Cons: "The flight was very lomg, but nothing could be done to remedy that."

Cons: "No complain. The crew did great service."
Pros: "Incheon airport was really nice for the layover. Korean Air staff are top notch."
Cons: "Cabin was a little warm the whole time. No individual air controls on this particular plane."
Pros: "A380 is great plane (this coming from a real Boeing enthusiast). Very Quiet! Coach had more leg room than I expected, especially for a non-US carrier. Good service and great inflight entertainment. The airline is not a US domestic carrier so flight staff might not understand every English word of a request but they try very hard. Most US carriers would not try as hard if I were speaking Korean! The whole world does not speak your language and remember that coach is coach for a reason $$$. Customs procedures are out of the control of carriers so comments about that."
Cons: "No individual control for air vent and it was a bit warm for me but most people were comfortable."
Pros: "Cabin crews are very kind."

Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Staff great"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were professional in appearance and behavior. They cleaned the restrooms after each client left the restroom."

Pros: "The stewardesses are very good and attentive."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "I really liked the prices of the tickets for this trip, I saved money over the regular price plane tickets; since I had 2 long layovers in Seoul at Inchoen Airport. I love this airport, it is clean, modern and offers so much amenities for FREE. The best for my second time LONG Lay over. My firtst time was at an airport in Alaska which I completely forgot since it was nearly 30 years ago. The flying experience was totally good from flying from BKK as it was also a good airport. I also liked the services, the crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flights were full and of course I had a seat in seat 32E next to a man who was ofviously either sick or had a bad allergy, he sneezed and sneezed 1/2 of the whole flight when he was awake and slept most of the time so it was difficult for me to get in and out to the rest room. Luckily the people in seats 32F & 32G were kind enough to let me in and out (I got out mostly while the lady in seat 32F was getting out of her seat.) Mostly the other experiences were good overall."
Pros: "The crew's professionalism and service. I wish Korean Air could provide training to the US based airlines! Well done!"
Cons: "The vegan meal was served twice during the flight. A bit more variety would have been nice. Qatar airways has a better variety of entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very anxious or something, controlling for no reason."
Cons: "Next time"
Pros: "It may be my imagination, but I feel like the seats on this Korean Air Flight lean back more and have more leg room that flights I've been on in the past. Also the crew was so kind, even when dealing with tired, grumpy passengers."
Cons: "I'm a big person so the seats are not comfortable for sleeping during long flights. Also, the Korean crew is usually excellent so I was surprised the crew on this flight was only average."
Pros: "Generally, i liked the flight. We were granted our request for a change in seats when i found out that me and my husband were not seated side by side."
Cons: "The entertainment has limited choice of movies."

Pros: "The incheon airport efficiency, the food Inboard, the transit was food."
Cons: "No snacks like ice cream or snacks. Crew was not as sensitive and attractive to passengers."
Pros: "Bathriom cleanliness and the good work of the stewardesses"
Pros: "Friendly crew and the airport in Incheon. Though our layover took 15 hours, I was able to rest in their lounge on second floor and able to took a nice shower too. I will fly Korwan Air again. Only one thing, please improve the quality of food, other than than that it was excellent experience!"
Cons: "The food needs to be improved."
Pros: "Had a whole row to myself"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great"
Cons: "스튜어디스 분이 애들이 우니까 귀찬은 표정을 지으셧고, 애들 밥도 배식때 빼먹고, 애가 화장실 가려고 기다리는데 배식 차를 비켜주지 않아서 되게 오래 기다렸고, 결국 다른 엄마가 비켜 달라고 해서 비켜주고, 비행기 착륙전에 애기 우니까 따든다고 사탕을 갖구와서 안 먹겟 다는데 억지로 입안에 넣어 줬다."
Pros: "Great service. Good food. Excellent entertainment options. Coach had widest seats I've ever sat in. Asiana is always my first choice for China-LAX."
Cons: "There was loads of turbulence, but it was handled well. And frankly, an airline can't control air conditions. So I have no real bad things to say about this flight."

Cons: "Wine selection not to my taste. need thicker pillow"
Pros: "See comments above."
Cons: "See comments above."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Baggage claim was also dragging"
Pros: "Some crew members were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "This airline puts priority on Korean speaking men non Korean women with a helpless child. First of all, my child was too large for the bassinet so I held him the entire time. Fine, I get it's for safety. But to make matters worse, my child had a fever and cried out of discomfort for the first 3 hours of a 10 hour flight. A male passenger complained and instead of defending a mother and a helpless sick child, the flight crew kept insisting ways to make my baby stop crying. Do you think I wanted to hear my child in that much pain? No, of course not. One male crew member told me to take my child to the back of thr aircraft (away from the complaining man). Ummm... I paid for my seat just like everyone else!! To be treated differently just because my baby is crying is HORRIBLE. To top it off, the seats are the worst I've ever sat in. My back and butt were in so much pain from those horrible seats. Bottom line- I will NEVER fly with this airline again after the mistreatment my baby and I received. This airline puts Korean speaking men above anyone else's needs, including a helpless 14 month old who feels horrible and doesn't know how else to communicate pain. I'll add that we were on a 10 hour flight after a 9 hour layover in Incheon and a 4 hour plane ride that was DELAYED from 1:45AM to 3:45AM. We were extremely tired and had been through so much already. If the crew had been more protective of us and understanding to the fact that he's a BABY I would have let the complaints slide. Last note- this airline delayed us 3 separate times. Yes.. 3 separate occasions. Do I need to say anything more?"
Pros: "They served grewl twice I thought I was getting grewl with road kill to eat"
Cons: "The food and seemed like one of the lady's working there did not like her job"
Pros: "We really enjoyed the size and comfort of the Airbus 380. Very quiet and powerful as we crossed the Pacific Ocean. The crew were very helpful and always friendly throughout the entire 11 hours back home."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very quick in attending our needs. The airplane is spacious and clean."
Pros: "Good sized seats of A380"
Cons: "They served wine about 40 ml with dinner ."
Pros: "I am on the plus size and I always have a hard time choosing an airline that would be comfortable for my size. Its was my first time to fly with Asiana and I was so impressed with how generous their seat space is."
Cons: "Food is not the great"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic. Thank you!"
Pros: "Great food - really yummy - and a really easy, reasonably comfortable flight."
Cons: "The headphones only transmitted the sound through one ear."
Pros: "Food is good. Movies are good"
Cons: "It's a 2 decker plane and full. 2 of the bathrooms are not working. Flight stewardess on flight not so attentive. Inside of plane is hot."
Pros: "Food is excellent. Friendly and courteous flight attendants."
Pros: "Had the Korean BBQ and was excellent. Entertainment options were great too!"
Pros: "Food and service were good"
Cons: "Delay flights had me running to catch the connecting flights just to find out those flights were also delayed"
Pros: "I actually didn't even feel the plane take off. Everything just worked. Seamless flight everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing perfect flight"
Pros: "Clean bathroom, well maintain during flight unlike some airlines 5 stars for that"
Cons: "Chicken was grilled marked than steam result tuff rubbery. Hostess refused to exchange it with beef saying thete eas no more on the spot, not even asking others waitresses from different raw, while later on when everyone wad sleeping I went to asked for water and there you go. She ead eating the beef from economic class and a dish from first class. I always thought that customers are valuable because we pay their salaries?! Very desapointed from this hotess from the Philli. Who during the who flight treat me like dirt, maybe she hates Americain? Also most of movies are children oriented only a few for mature minds and they are over a year old. First time on Asiana and last time even been a star alliance member what a disappointment!"
Pros: "Crew members were helpful and nice."
Cons: "1.Flight Network said that the transaction was in US dollars. Therefore there shouldn't have been a currency exchange fee from my US bank. However, Flight Network charged Canadian dollars, so my US bank charged me a 3% exchange fee and the Canadian bank charged me another $8 fee resulting in a combined $32 extra to the price.of my ticket. Flight Network was not honest about the currency of the transaction. Kayak should require that Flight Network and any other vendors be honest about the currency of the transaction. 2. The extra 5 hours of layover at Incheon Airport was a total drag. It caused me to miss my connecting flight from LAX to Mexico City, so by the time I got into Mexico City there were no more buses running to Queretaro. I had to book a room in Mexico City at an additional expense and pay for taxi fare that I would not have needed if Asiana Airlines hadn't added 5 extra hours of layover to my trip."
Pros: "Seating on that Airbus was very comfortable with a lot of leg room and we sat in economy class. Food also was excellent."
Pros: "Clean and crew were excellent and responsive. Good communication and good choices of food. Economy seat seems to be wider and more comfortable than Air China which I flew last April. Also Incheon Airport WiFi was easy to connect compare to China airports."
Cons: "My entertainment remote was broken already!"
Pros: "good experience"
Pros: "Overall, the long flights between the US and Korea were quite comfortable, the food was decent, and the crew was efficient."
Cons: "The connecting flights, from Korea to Vietnam were not as comfortable (understandably as it was a smaller plane), and the food was close to inedible on the shorter flights. I'm not sure why the quality of good goes down so much on the shorter flights."
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "It sounds like a small thing, but, seats were much too hard. which made long flight torture. cabin temp was sweltering hot."
Pros: "The food was excellent when the steward decides to serve you."

Pros: "love flyinf the A380...Asiana offers an excellent flight experience"
Pros: "The in flt service was excellent. Ticket counter agents were also excellent. The aircraft, A 380-800 was super!! So much room even in economy!"
Pros: "Everything else was good."
Cons: "The horrible delays!"
Pros: "Great service, good food, free (2) bag check-in policy, free movies( I saw 4 movies back to back - recent releases too)."

Pros: "The attendants were great! They went above and beyond their duties."
Cons: "The food was okay."
Pros: "Me and my family has been flying with Asiana Airlines whenever we go home for vacation to the Philippines. We had also some relatives that came with us at one time because we told them about how good Asiana services is. It was excellent so to say, however, on this last trip with my family, total of eight passengers including 2 kids - 6 of us travelled on the 18th of December came back on the 13th of January, 2 travelled on the 25th of Dec. came back on the 14th of Jan., we were disappointed that the service/s is not that great anymore."
Cons: "Our flight from Seoul to Los Angeles was terrible. The flight was delayed for more than 2 hours. On top of that, the plane was not properly cleaned as there were some trash in the pockets behind the chairs in front of you and you can tell that the floor were not properly cleaned as there were pieces of paper. Also, the bathroom/s were not properly cleaned. More so the food were not that great anymore, The beef was hard and the chicken was cold. I always pay particular attention to these things for the main reason that my family/relatives has been flying with Asiana and with deteriorating services I think the company should look into the above so customers will continue to fly with Asiana and keep them, if they value their customers."
Pros: "Food was good Seats were bad old plane"
Pros: "I'm a very picky traveler with high expectations. Asiana met most of my expectations for an economy flight. I rarely give out Excellent ratings. But the flight crew was extra friendly with plenty of smiles."
Cons: "Only the rude passengers themselves which Asiana really has no control over."
Pros: "I appreciated how from the ground crew to the air crew, Asiana staff have been very helpful and courteous. Especially the ground crew in Manila Airport. Food was awesome however I hope for bigger portions on snacks. But customer service really was great."
Cons: "My flight got delayed. But I have along layover so it's okay."
