She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter .

Cons: "Wish the bathroom was cleaned a little later in the flight. After many uses it was looking rough."

Pros: "Flight to Seattle was great. Food and staff and flight were nice."
Cons: "Most everything. The flight back to Seoul was awful. Toilets weren't cleaned, trash overflowed, ran out of water, staff not pleasant - total opposite from outbound. Usually KA is goodness, but blew it this time."

Cons: "The flight attendants were extremely rude and not very attentive. The entertainment choices were stale and very limited. Overall very disappointing."

All of the staff inside the plane was great and friendly, the food was good (I was surprised we even got food - it was a 2 hour flight). There was very good entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were extremely small and close to each other, I would touch elbows with the other passengers. It wasn't such a problem since it was such a short flight. And there was more positives than negatives."

Pros: "comfort"

Pros: "New clean plane...food... Crew service was fantastic!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, convenience pouch, and comfort are all good."

Pros: "Airbus 380 from JFK, very quiet comfortable plain, even in economy, very attentive, will offer juice etc often during flight. Large screen Entertainment system very good with large choice."

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. Food was okay, but better than most airlines that charge or have snack-sized portions."
Cons: "777-200ER does not have vent control and the cabin temperature was way too warm. Leg room in Economy is inadequate."

Pros: "Always great service and they really are quite accommodating."
Cons: "Delay out of Seattle made us miss our connection in Seoul, so had a day layover, but Korean Air was very accommodating with hotel and meals. Perhaps such short turn overs should not be the way to go for connecting flights or perhaps hold connecting flights for a few minutes -- missed by 5 minutes arrival, but would never have made it through transfer and gate connection without super help by staff and more time. KA did their best -- just wasn't prepared to stayover in Seoul."

Pros: "I loved the flight (Thanks Korean Air Flight Attendants!). The aircraft was an Airbus 380-800 and each seat in coach had legroom, a USB charger, access to 110AC, and an individual screen that had games, tv, movies for me and the family. Great airplane, crew, and 13.5 hour flight. Additionally, Incheon International (S. Korea) is in my Top 2 airports of all time."
Cons: "The tickets were bought many months in advance and the flight itinerary changed about 6 times during the months. I understand this completely, but each change had me checking the details of each stop to see what exactly changed. Most of the time the changes were 10 mins here, 10 mins there. It would be nice for the changes to be BOLD or something."

Cons: "The screens on the backs of the seats were difficult to utilize (it is a touch screen but I had to tap on the screen multiple times in order for it to actually work). Perhaps due to an outdated system/software. There is a remote placed sideways/length-wise under the screen that you may take out of its placement however it was not as convenient as directly tapping on the screen."

Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, brand new 747.. Very professional and friendly flight crew.. Food was above average, no complaints.."

Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled had to wait over a day for another flight, communication was poor,"

Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."

Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."

Pros: "It was a direct flight with good food and movies to choose from"
Cons: "Small cramped seats in economy"

Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"

Cons: "Maybe the food"

Pros: "airline service"
Cons: "n.a"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "nothing all was good"

Pros: "Relaxing areas"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service. Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and we definitely didn't go hungry! Tons of new movie options. My husband and I were definitely able to catch up."
Cons: "We were seated in the back of the airplane, where a lot over people hovered for the washrooms, and boarding off the plane took longer. But, not much that could have been done about that!"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"

Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."

Cons: "The flight was delayed because one or more of the crew were late. I would suggest that when you board a large flight, start from the rear of the plane, not the front. Having to go past everyone to get to your seat is time consuming and somewhat stressful. The food was super gross. The so called beef bulgogi was not appetizing at all. For breakfast, the food was disgusting."

Cons: "Better space. Better service. Terrible directions"

Pros: "The best"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"

Pros: "Entertainment selection was nice."
Cons: "Seats were too tightly packed in. Person in front reclined their seat and I couldn't even reach my bag under the seat. Very uncomfortable. And I'm small/short."

Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."

Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"

Cons: "Equipment used has seen better days. Seemed to have difficulty starting engines and aircraft had loud squealing hydraulic pump noises not typically encountered when flying the 717. A little disconcerting."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I've got the exit seat: very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment choice could improve, very few choices."

Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"

Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."

Pros: "Lovely crew. The food was tasty."
Cons: "It would’ve been nice to make up some flight time in the air from the 4 hour delay and multiple gate changes that were all announced too late to delay a trip to the airport :("

Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."

Cons: "Comfort plus seats on final leg did not appear to be different than main cabin"

Cons: "More comfortable seats!!!"

Pros: "Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"

Pros: "Great entertainment system."

Pros: "The plane was very new and clean; entertainment options and food were very good; it was a good flight."
Cons: "At baggage drop-DCA: Charged me for a bag when I had a status that allows 1 bag free; she would not listen, made me pay for it in order to check my bag and then told me to go over to customer service and ask for a refund."

Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Business aisles are one way only, very impractical. Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke. I will make zero effort to fly this equipment...777 is the best after loosing the 747."

Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"

Pros: "Great staff and they worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."

Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."

Pros: "Delta’s notifications are very timely and helpful. They even tell you when your bags are on the plane and at baggage claim."

Cons: "I checked bag at the gate voluntarily in advance and was able to board zone 1. However, when I got to my destination, I found that a large iten had been removed and was missing. The staff would not help locate or recover it."

Pros: "The flight attendants gave great service"

Pros: "I have no complaints. Not on"

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "The flight was operated by Delta."
Cons: "I waited too late to upgrade my seats, but there were no negatives."

Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "we had a l long wait getting to the gate. Once we are the gate the delta staff had a hard time getting a wheelchair victim on the plane."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Pros: "Delta’s crew were professional"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, reclining only about an inch is not enough for a 5+ hr trip"

Pros: "Plenty of room, on time"

Pros: "Staff pretty friendly. Plane clean. Ran on time. Good communication."
Cons: "No option for tv/movie on a longer flight. And really? One tiny snack for a longer flight too?? Little more room in seats would be nice."

Pros: "Service and staff"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Delta crew are lazy...they wont help u out to store ur bags."

Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"

Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"

Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."

Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."

Cons: "I'm tired of Delta making it IMPOSSIBLE to experience benefits of my loyalty. I flew literally AROUND the world in the past 6 months and it STILL doesn't qualify me for anything more than Silver elite? Seriously? When you use a voucher because of their error to lower your ticket price, but still pay cash for it, why does that then automatically exclude you from upgrades? Poor customer loyalty, in fact, non-existent these days."

Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"

Pros: "The crew was great on both Korean air and Delta. Very helpful and polite, with several going the extra mile"
Cons: "I'm tall, so I'd like bigger seats, but I guess that can't be helped much without a price increase"

Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"

The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

Pros: "KLM food and service are great"

Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."

Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."

Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."
