Flight from Korea to Bangkok was extremely disappointing. Seats were too small and the row was too small to move your leg. I had a person behind me who with movement would have kicked my seat. It was most disturbing flight I ever had. Do you honesty think Korean Airline cares?
Amazing service, food, and experience!!!
The Korean Air flight left on time from Washington and the service on the flight was adequate but nothing special. The Jin Air flight for my second leg from Seoul to Bangkok was very much subpar. There was very little meal service and no entertainment whatsoever for a 5 1/2 hour flight. I didn’t read the fine print careful enough. I will avoid in the future any flight with Jin Air as a subsidiary of Korean Air.
Pros: "Korean Airlines now definitely ranks on best airlines to travel internationally. Great legroom, good food, and a terrific cabin crew who was helpful and kind."
Pros: "Everything that was offered snacks, pillow,"
Cons: "More water!"
Cons: "Everyone was accomadating"
Pros: "Nice, clean efficient. Comfort was good."
Cons: "The crew was great but pretty impersonal. Not a great selection of movies."
Cons: "Flight attendants rude to travel companion . Non Korean but speaks Korean. When addressing two flight attendants on Korean, they insisted on responding in English, rather than continuing in Korean. Travel companion not happy."
Cons: "Overall experience is good."
Pros: "Wouldn’t allow me to board with no explanation and the third party company Flyus.com is a complete rip off"
Cons: "Use better companies to book your tickets"
Pros: "The crew, as always, was super professional, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The plane was neat and clean, I was pleasantly surprised with personal items like tooth paste, tooth brush, and slippers. And I was thrilled that you served wine with food as well. That goes a long way!"
Cons: "I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!"
Cons: "Seats weren’t as comfy or spacious as I would have thought given Korean air Having won best economy liner a few times. No entertainment in seats either."
Pros: "The music of kpop"
Cons: "Would have been good if there’s more korean drama available on the trip and some kimbap food too"
Pros: "The crew was great. The technology is great. I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "I wish I had more water."
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Dated aircraft A330-300 and seats."
Pros: "Cleanliness, super efficient, helpful, competent, gracious crew - among the very best in the world of airlines! Politeness and smiling courtesy defines KAL. The spacious seats are best for six footers like me - legroom wise."
Cons: "It used to be my and my wife’s favorite airline. But the warm and dry air in the cabin dry our throats and nasal cavities and make travel so uncomfortable! My wife suffered twice with coughs and respiratory illness. I’m traveling by myself in this trip. She avoids KAL. Food is sparse and ordinary unlike before."
Cons: "During 14 hour flight, meals were served at the beginning and at the end which comes to 10 hours in between. Between the two meals, they offered a snack of banana or brownie. My wife and I were starving. Terrible!"
Cons: "It was delayed for two hrs for 50mns domestic flight. An i missed connecting bus so had to pay extra 100usd!"
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: "Flight attendants were very nice and leg room space was more than other flights"
Pros: "Seats reasonably comfortable, service decent"
Cons: "3 of my 4 flight legs were considerably delayed, my luggage not making the connection for one of them. A friend also flying Korean also had delays making me think they are unreliable and extremely disorganized. I don't know what they'll do when they're really busy for the Olympics. Entertainment OK but ANA has much more."
Cons: "I'm stuck in Korea on Christmas Day instead of being in the Philippines. The Korean Air staff didn't speak English very well and it took an hour to figure out what was happening. I had to pay for my own hotel on top of my resort that I'm paying for in the Philippines and the next flight isn't until 9 pm Christmas day. Worst airline I have ever had to deal with. On top of my five days off this year and two were wasted on traveling. Big waste of time and money. Will probably not use your website or the airline again."
Pros: "Incheon Airport consistently rated one of the best in the world, has everything s traveler needs and more. Airplane was exceedingly clean, Flight Attenddents very professional, attentivel and efficient."
Cons: "cheated by kayak. I paid full pay as mention on your wave sight but did not provide the hotel for 20 hours plus long transit. I spend 20 hours plus at the airport without any support form staff. Korean air please don't accept any ticket agent who will give a ticket to passengers with 20 hours transit time and no accommodation. good Korean air but bad kayak."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Wish I could have sat further in the front"
Pros: "some area the A/C does not work"
Pros: "Great seat and fairly decent food."
Cons: "Very tight seating"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Kayak used a sub company to reserve flights. My husband was involved in a collision at sea and was not able to make the flight due to military deployment status. I tried continuously to contact the sub company to request a waiver or hold on the flight. The number provided kept me on a hold . There were no answers to phone calls from information provided on receipt. Emails only stated the fees that would be imposed for any action I conducted. I will never use kayak again."
Pros: "다 좋은데 한가지 불만사항 : 인터넷에서 구매했다는 이유로 Mileage 로 Upgrade 가 안된다는데 그럼 KAL 대리점도 없는 이곳에서 mileage 는 언제 사용 ?"
Pros: "Boarding, food, airplanes"
Cons: "Seat was so narrow, my elbows were stuck to my torso the whole way"
Pros: "Staff is really helpful. Anounsment is proper.variety of food was provided."
Cons: "Your can improve entertainment facility. Food variety can be improved."
Pros: "Services are great, the people are kind."

Pros: "Great Service, enough leg room for someone who is 75 inches in height, good food, and an on-time arrival."
Pros: "I liked just about everything about this flight. From the food to the service to the movie selection, flying with them was great!"
Cons: "Nothing! Great flight."
Pros: "There was enough leg space even though we were couch and the flight attendants were nice. They also fed us regularly and gave out snacks and drinks so this made the 15 hours plane ride more pleasant."
Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been."
Pros: "I really liked how Korean Air had the next flights gate information on my boarding passes."
Cons: "Meal quality in economy is really poor, much poorer compared to four years ago, when I last flew Korean Air, and poorer than Asiana, which I flew last year. Flight attendant serving our section kept knocking into aisle seat passenger, including knocking over his coffee cup and spilling coffee all over him and the passenger next to him. Flight attendant's reaction was to panic instead of handing over napkins or paper towels - was mopping up with my napkins and tissues by the time she showed up with some paper towels. I was left with the impression that flight attendants were picked more for looks than competence. Checking in at Incheon took a very long time - they should open more counters or give warning to passengers of how long it can take."
Pros: "Air Korea continued to be awesome"
Cons: "Still no laptop plug"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were professional in appearance and behavior. They cleaned the restrooms after each client left the restroom."
Cons: "I was coming from a very cold climate and had on long underwear under my street clothes. So unfortunately, it seemed that the blankets were "too" warm on the plane."
Cons: "Late boarding and then sat on plane for approximately 30 minutes before taxi. Arrived Busan 45 min late and never heard an explanation why."
Pros: "I liked everything about my flight from the attendants to the food. Overall, it was a great experience. :)"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Seats weren't too bad. Decent selection of movies, but have had better. USB plug at every seat. Ordered vegetarian meal but didn't arrive."
Cons: "They didn't have my vegetarian meal that I ordered so was pretty hungry."
Pros: "Delta crew was awesome"
Cons: "Running to flight"
so upset with the poor customer service I have received.
Plane got too warm when flying to Narita. Plane was older model.
The crew are friendly and accommodating. I have no complaints.
Japan Airlines should have done better incorporated with other codeshare airlines (JetBlue) to make sure our reservation doesn’t get mess up and that’s one of the reason why we stayed in Newyork for the whole day to wait for the next flight. Could have been much better experience but it wasn’t and worse. My flight got delayed in Newyork causing us to miss out our flight on the outbound from Narita to Vietnam. On the way back, the agent from JP airlines messed up our reservation and separate our name into 2 different reservations making us running around to figure out how to get the boarding pass for my partner which is ridiculous.

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew."
Cons: "The Entertainment screen could have been larger."
Pros: "The crew and food was amazing, with ample entertainment selections."
Cons: "Seats. For some unknown reason, JAL uses different seats on this 787-8 flight from NRT-SAN that's 2-3 inches less in pitch than all of their other planes. This was not comfortable on a 9-hour+ flight. The flight attendants also woke us up everytime food was served so we could recline up seats."
Pros: "Seat super comfy"
Cons: "All okay"
Pros: "The crew amazing. Food was great"
Cons: "I needed to change the date of the flight and JAL refused to change it. that sort of made it a bad flight since I couldn't take it."
Cons: "Had serious and consistent blockage to receive seat assignment from AAirlines. Round trip ticket with JAL but they code shared lax to tokyo with AA. Later AA refused to let me change THEIR seat assignment (3 scattered middle seats in economy). unless I bought an upgrade. They also said tic"

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."
