Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."

Cons: "Ordered vegetarian oriental and they brought me appetizer of shrimp Flight attendant didn’t understand that shrimp is not vegetarian"

The crew are very polite and attentive, the plane is comfy and clean. The food could have been better. It's not for all people's taste. They should give atleast two meals in a 4-5hr flight, a snack and a meal coz the portions are so little.

Pros: "The crew took care of us during a strange virus affected flight."
Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."
Cons: "On long flights, the seats need to be more comfortable and there needs to be more entertainment options. Also was not sure why we could not book seats even though we booked tickets in October."
Pros: "Time is good."

Pros: "Good service from the crew and good food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there are a lot of redundant checks before entering to the gate. No internet service and the flight was very long. (14 hrs)"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."
Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"
Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Seoul to NYC JFK 1/24/20 trip. This female Korean member was rushing passengers. Which was totally unnecessary. It is necessary to give client some time to get situated. Airline serve all kinds of age group of client. I was watching the way she was serving food, again in a rushed manner? Does she like her job? This is unprofessional. The rest of the crew members were courteous except her. Bad representation of this company."
Cons: "Read above. The food is on the mediocre side. The beef was so hard to chew. The shrimp pasta had 3 pieces of small shrimp. I will not recommend this airline."
Cons: "The flight was late for three hours and as a result, we missed our connection to Hawaiian Airline and have to spend the night in Korea. They never explain why the flight was late and no apology was given"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I tried to cancel the flight more than 14 days before the flight and you didn't let me. I couldn't fly that day and i have not received a refund"
Pros: "Cabin, seat, and aircraft comfortable but not at all luxurious."
Cons: "Service was really bad, the toilets were filthy; in this regard probably the worst business class experience in recent years."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 10 hours less with less than 24 hours notice. Had to call Asiana to change flight to a 1 stop flight (original flight was nonstop). Flight to Seoul from New York was also delayed by 8 hours and I ended up having to spend ~$70 for hotel/taxi due to arriving in Seoul past midnight. Horrible experience both there and back and don't think I would ever take Asiana again."
Pros: "I love how they give importance to parents traveling with little kids."
Cons: "They ran out of food choices. I have been flying with Asiana for the longest time and this has happened thrice."
Pros: "My vegetarian husband had good food on an airplane, which is rare. Also the service is wonderful on Asiana,"
Pros: "The crew was kind. The Meal was great. All good."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accomodating."

Pros: "Korean BBQ"
Cons: "No power outlets on a 14 hour flight! No wifi. Tinynild screens."
