Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The second flight was perfect."
Cons: "No vegetarian options at all without advance notice."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Some announcements were only made in Korean. Would have been nice to have it in English for international flight."
Cons: "Less new movies and kids movies"
Pros: "Everything was good, excellent. No complaint at all!"
Cons: "Perfect no further better service, I suppose."
Pros: "Fortunately plane not full and was able to use adjacent seat(s)."
Pros: "Boarding process was all over the place. No one listened to the instructions the crew gave them. No special meal as requested as a friend of mine is vegan and allergic to several items so luckily she brought her own food on board. Crew was ok, nothing special."
Cons: "The in flight movies/tv was not working. The customs situation is crazy. I appreciate the thoroughness but at points it was overboard. Constant scanning of ticket from the security "TSA" to just scanning your bags 2 feet later."
Cons: "More water"
Pros: "Comport seating"
Cons: "Food quality needs to be improve"
Pros: "Yes, crews were excellent"
Cons: "Boarding of passengers should be clear"
Pros: "Preference given for those requiring extra help boarding"
Cons: "Very narrow seats with very very limited leg room. I’m only 5’4” tall and had no leg room. My sister is 5’11” and had leg cramps from the 4.5 hour flight because of the lack of leg room. Probably time to replace this plane."
Pros: "Same as the first flight. Korean flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. Foods ok. We couldn’t afford first or prestige class so we have to trade in our comfort in economy."
Cons: "Flight wasn’t as long but if you add up the lay over time, it end up being long."
Pros: "They were so courteous, polite, nice, very helpful and accommodating. Always have smiles on their faces and they’re not fake smiles, they’re genuine. They made me feel comfortable even in a small, tight seats."
Cons: "Oh boy, the length of travel time. This trip was a spontaneous and a last minute decision. So as you can see, I couldn’t get a cheaper direct flight. End up with a stop over in S. Korea."
Pros: "Nice bathhroom size"
Cons: "I dont like the 2x seating in business, seats are not up to what they should be, i was glad it was a short flight"
Pros: "Accomodating the cew"
Cons: "The only thing that brought my rating of this flight down was the fact that it was so hot in the plane! From the moment we boarded, this plane was, for reasons we couldn’t figure out, stuffy and uncomfortably hot. My pregnant girlfriend did not particularly enjoy this flight."
Cons: "I would have given a 5 Stars for comfort if the cabin temperature is at least cooler not dry. Please please look into it."
Cons: "a lot of engine noise so i could not sleep"
Cons: "Everything was going well until our bags didn’t show up at our final destination. Big no-no. Just ruined the otherwise pleasant experience"
Pros: "Again the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The 747-400 flight had some metal box mounted on the floor under the seat in front of me. I have a bad left hip and was in pain the whole flight because all I could do is keep my left leg in one position. If these boxes are necessary then get those seats more space so it will not be a problem. Put new Monitor screens into the seats."
Cons: "Just the more than one hour departure delay. Reason given was that they were still waiting for passengers on a connect connecting flight. Then what was unusual was a manual head count of passengers which was out of the ordinary in this high tech world of modern air transportation"
Pros: "Customer service is very good"
Pros: "The service and especially the flight stewart, he has to be the best one EVER!!!"
Cons: "I was too distracted by the professionalism, friendliness and care of the fight stewart to see anything bad."
Pros: "After waiting for 5 hours on the airport, was happy to get in the plane. Business lounge is mediocre and over crowded."
Cons: "Flying form LA Had to wait an hour in the air pane for a gate to be assigned in Seoul. It was due to weather issues but crew was not very informative. Connecting flight was delayed by four hours and crew was not sure Did not inform when the flight will leave. Passengers from another delayed flight gathered around our gate and blocked us from entering boarding our plane. They were demanding that our flight should be canceled and didn’t let us board. Security was present they were taking notes but never intervened. This is the first time I have experience this type of chaos on an airport but from the signs posted, it appears that it may be normal situation and this airport. Didn’t expect I will have to push through a mob to board the air plane."
Pros: "flight delay for more than an houe"
Cons: "Same above"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, comfortable length seats. Deplanijng and boarding was fast."
Pros: "attentiveness of the crew to people of multiple nationalities."
Pros: "acomodations was awesome!!!"
Cons: "temperature was not consitent"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There wasnt anything that i didnt like"
Pros: "Everything.they all assist you and helped u out to look and store your hand carry-on."
Pros: "The vegetarian food is better than what was served by the other airlines I've flown in."
Cons: "The seat is small"
Pros: "They were helpful in getting us on and off the plane. My daughter spilled a drink and they quickly gave me napkins and wet towels to clean up. Also, the plane had great leg room!"
Pros: "Food was excellent. Flight attendants are very courteous and helpful too. Plane was very spacious, I love flying with Korean air."
Pros: "Except for crying babies, all is well. Commendable"
Cons: "Same food every year after year"
Pros: "The flight crews are friendly and very active I love the smooth airborne and landing the food was delicious"
Pros: "The service and food is good"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Korean Air's policy is to have the air temperature set at 24 Celsius. Who does that? Even in our homes, nobody has their temperature set so high, even in the cold weather months. It is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Bibimbap not available. Crew checked in our carry-on despite having space above our seats (Carry-on was not checked in during Chicago to Seoul trip). Unresponsive entertainment system. If this was only a ICN - MNL flight this is overpriced since it feels like a budget airline."
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: "Plane left on time"
Cons: "Very limited movie options for someone who flew 4 flights with you in the past 3 weeks. You need to refresh more often or offer more options."
Pros: "First of all, you should not be charging a cancelation fee for unforeseen circumstance such as health problems. Second of all, I have not received a response yet from the emails I have been sending. It is extremely hard to call your hotline for foreigners."
Cons: "Refund policy"
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: "I've flown all over the world and it literally was the best flight I've ever had."
Pros: "Flight was full but still comfortable."
Cons: "We are delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "long wait for our baggage to be released to the conveyors after we had arrived"
Pros: "My special meal request was honored and was quite tasty! The plane was comfortable--seats to lavatory!"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "new plane good flight"
Cons: "seat space"
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, boarding was good"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work, my tv didn’t work either"
Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."
Cons: "The seat was squeaking all the time"
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."
Pros: "Nothing I couldn’t get this flight because of the delay of the previous one"
Cons: "The company could have hold it knowing there were travellers on connection. If not, knowing that they were no flight before the next day they could have prepare hotel booking for us because all hotels were full at midnight when we finally could get there."
Cons: "Middle seat, last row. In a full flight, and the passenger in fronf reclines, its difficult to watch monitor, eat, or move"
Pros: "Actually leaving the airport after 2 hours late was the best part."
Cons: "Not be hours late. And then when you finally land have to wait longer for an open gate cause they're doing work on the other ones. A lot of poor planning on this trip. Very disappointed in this experience cause I love to fly."
Pros: "Crew, chairs, entertainment"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience. We were not offered a choice of seats when we checked in and had to wait at the gat"
Cons: "Flight was 1,5 hr delayed, which almost caused me to miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Pros: "Attendants, food and entertainment very positive"
Cons: "Seats reserved online no where in system. Everyone seemed to be in zone 3 or at least decided to stand in line."
Pros: "The Delta flight crew was exceptional!! Friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "I liked that me and my boyfriend actually got to sit together."
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."
Pros: "Flight turned out great... but I got lucky!!! Got a seat I wanted... now praying the same occurs on return trip"
Cons: "Not being able to assign my seat until I got to the gate!! Terrifying not to be able to choose seat fir such a long flight!!! Do not ever want to be in this situation again!!!"
Pros: "The flight was good but the air didn’t work again plane was warm the space was limited but the movies were good the flight attendants were OK"
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Fairbanks airport small and cozy, very easy to hear boarding announcements. There were two seats in our row and behind us that had been assigned to more than one person. The flight attendants were very quick and resourceful in solving the issue to everyone’s satisfaction."
Cons: "I srill dislike the idea of purchasing food and paying baggage fees separately from the tickets. Creates inconvenience as well as at least three separate transactions, increasing your exposure to possible credit card data theft."
Cons: "Was unclear which zone was boarding. Legroom was comprised when passenger in immediate row ahead reclined seat early in flight."
Pros: "No lines at the baggage drop off. No lines at TSA. Efficient and organized boarding. Seat area was clean. No delay, friendly energetic flight attendants."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence on the last 20 minutes of the flight. Captain had warned us. Nothing they can control though."
Cons: "Super noisy due to being in the last row! Couldn’t even watch a movie. Bathrooms were so dirty and door didn’t close properly. Air vents didn’t reach to aisle seat. Awful."
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Cons: "the inefficiency and extra steps required to travel. Quite lacking in smooth transition between flights, significantly below expectations relative to other airlines"
Pros: "Check-in agent was very pleasant even through having to deal with a number of cancelled flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed shortly before it was scheduled for boarding, which resulted in further delays/cancellations along the journey. Earlier notification may have allowed me to remain in Atlanta a night or two longer with my family as opposed to having had to spend many additional hours sitting uncomfortably in an airport."
Pros: "Quick flight!"
Cons: "Didn't realize the last seat on the plane doesn't mean back."
Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st / Business class."
Cons: "Due to weather the power outage in ATL, the flight out of PHL was delayed by about 30 minutes. No movies. No meals."
Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."
Pros: "Funny people at the gate, all was smooth and on time"
Cons: "It was too hot in the cabin, which is unusual (usually, I freeze)"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long layover in Atlanta. Terrible terminal setup in LAX . Although we were on two connecting Delta flights, we had to leave the arriving terminal and take a bus to another. The second terminal (Terminal 2) was small, crowded, and had few food options."
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."
Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."
Pros: "Food was not offered on a short flight, the one star does not mean bad. There was no other option same for entertainment"
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Pros: "This was a first! The flight attendant (sorry I didn't catch his name) was very attentive and assisted us in first class as needed. He actually addressed us by our name and that made me feel like I was not just a passenger!"
Cons: "TSA in Atlanta was a nightmare. Really just a little kindness would go a long way."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Pros: "Frequent food offerings throughout the flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was not easy. We had to show our passports to a man who quizzed us on where we were coming from, where we were going, and asking questions about our luggage. After that we had to go through another security point and scan our boarding passes, but most people could not get through with our boarding passes, so we had to get in another line to show our passes to our agent. It was very stressful since we were running late since the border control line was so long! While it was stressful, I am glad that they were careful regarding the security,"
