As a result I had a rereble sit on the last line of the airplane, and it is ~12h flight .
Luckily on the way back it was OK.
The inflight entertainment was good. The seats seem to be wide. The ticket price was good, but only if not booked directly on their website (there it was double of what I paid...).
Boarding started about 30 minutes late - no announcement, no we’re sorry. Then the doors were not closed for more than 10 minutes after all passengers were on board, again no announcement, no we’re sorry. The beverage selection was only water, juice or tea. For food no veggie option was available. The crew’s English was pretty bad. The cabin was not clean - the side of a seat more in front was sprayed with some brown liquid. Getting out of the plane we had to wait very long because every passenger de boarding had to be checked on a list, and only one Hainan staff was doing this.
Overall I do not understand how this can be a five star airline.
Had to get off Korean air in Seoul & go thru terribly bogged down customs, just to transfer & continue on another Korean air plane - both ways! Barely made it to my 2nd plane even though I practically ran thru the big airport after the customs delay - both on my way to Hanoi & on my return. Got to Vancouver & only found out by accident that my checked bag would NOT be transferred to my Seattle flight, even though my tag clearly said to pick it up in Seattle. Had to disembark, claim my bag, then go thru the departure procedure at Vancouver all over again, with 2 customs checks: enter Canada, re board to U.S.
I really appreciated getting a meal on the plane despite the short two hour flight. I've always liked flying Korean Air due to their cleanliness, presentable flight attendants and good customer service.
The only thing I seemed to have a problem with was the volume and clearness that came out of my headphones. Although the headphones were provided by the airlines, the volume came out a little unclear and kind of scratchy. Other than that, everything was great.
