Pros: "Good service, 6 hour flight with 2 free meal!"
Pros: "Would appreciate if they can provide a list of possible menus to choose for the meals. Consistencies on bagage claim info, and changes in boarding gates."
Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."
Pros: "Korean airlines is completely criminal"
Cons: "Korean airlines"
Pros: "Excellent service and probably the most efficient boarding process I’ve ever been a part of. Food service went by without a hitch, and the stewardesses knew English very well so we felt comfortable and welcomed. I also really liked being able to get terminal/travel information from the infotainment system. Being that I’ve never been to ICN or NRT before, having access to terminal maps and basic instructions on how to find connecting flights and baggage claim areas was probably one of the most helpful features of the flight!"
Cons: "I am 5’11” and found my seat somewhat uncomfortable. It didn’t detract from being able to sleep at all, but it did seem like the seats on this airline might be at its most comfortable with shorter passengers."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive, I just thought it was weird that they aren’t allowed to take pictures? That was the only strange thing. Overall one of the best experiences with an airline compared to most. Probably because of the unlimited tasty beverages ;)"
Cons: "Strange that flight attendants can’t take pictures like stated above. And the video games are horribly outdated!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not offered so I can’t rate them."
Pros: "nothing, i regret flying west jet but i had no choice bc it was the only option for my layover."
Cons: "- boarding was late - take off time took forever (kept circling around) - no entertainment - uncomfortable seats - very loud plane compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The general service was amazing. The flights were all super clean, well stocked (they still provided headphones, pillows, and blankets) and nice newer planes. The crew was great as well, their English was pretty good and I never had any issues."
Cons: "My original seat assignments were not found so I lost my window seat on one flight."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "I know you are not the only airline that does this, but the seats are cramped. I am not a big guy. I can't imagine what a heavier or tall person goes through in those economy seats."
Pros: "Leg room Food Flight attendants. They were attentive."
Pros: "The flight was smooth though there's a bit delay from Seoul because of the snow."
Cons: "There should be more selection on the food served in the plain."
Pros: "Nothing at all. It was hell and you should be ashamec ofhiw you treated me."
Cons: "Everything. You have THE worst customer servive evet."
Pros: "They fixed my vegetarian meal issue by making sure I get it on the next flight."
Cons: "1. They didn't have a vegetarian meal as I had selected while booking my flight. 2. For the 2nd meal, they offered me the extra vegetarian meal they had but it had so much chili powder in it, it was not edible."
Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "Same exception experience with the flight attendants, boarding was smooth, food is good and along with entertainment selection."
Cons: "The plane aisle is a bit tight and cramp and it is hard to move around. The chair in economy is not very comfortable very sturdy lack of cushion and back support. Leg room is ok, not as roomy as the flight from SFO to South Korea. When we boarded there was a strong smell burning fumes from the A.C. (air condition) that trigger my asthma and landed in Cebu very ill with asthma and allergy."

Pros: "Short layover, good food"
Pros: "Everything except the food option"

Cons: "No legitimate complaints."
