Cons: "the crew on this flight didn't timely deal with two situations I had. it took twenty minutes to get a cup of tea and I had to ask twice. then I dropped my nighttime mouth retainer on the floor and it also took twenty minutes and two reminders to have them sterilize it.

Pros: "Timely and professional services,well polite and corteous staff"
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: "Just about everything"
Cons: "In priority class the space was narrow when accessing the aisle from the window seat"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "Would love more Movie and TV options, especially light of the length of the trip"
Pros: "Service was very good"

Anyone tell ne"

Cons: "I was upset with the lack of live television/satellite channels."

Pros: "Everything was good overall"
Cons: "I would like more movie and tv options"
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."

Pros: "Seat spacing is actually sane - so much better than US airlines"
Pros: "Courteous and attentive service. Generous with extras (e.g. wine, meals). The entertainment options (movies, TV, music) made the 13 hour flight pass quickly. I was even able to catch a few hours' of sleep thanks to the ample leg room and a seat that reclines more than 15 degrees. Finally, the fellow passengers (mostly Korean) were quiet and polite, which made the flight all the more delightful. This is definitely my goto choice for trips to Southeast Asia."
Pros: "Check in staff were good. We departed on time."
Cons: "Better if they could provide maybe nuts I flight but if not, it's still all good for an hour flight.."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 10 hours less with less than 24 hours notice. Had to call Asiana to change flight to a 1 stop flight (original flight was nonstop). Flight to Seoul from New York was also delayed by 8 hours and I ended up having to spend ~$70 for hotel/taxi due to arriving in Seoul past midnight. Horrible experience both there and back and don't think I would ever take Asiana again."
Pros: "I love how they give importance to parents traveling with little kids."
Cons: "They ran out of food choices. I have been flying with Asiana for the longest time and this has happened thrice."
Pros: "My husband and I were flying out of Jeju Island on the morning of 6/27/18 flt#OZ8922 to Seoul for a connection to Tokyo. The morning had some heavy rain and some flights were delayed, including ours. I don’t know if it’s your normal procedure in these situations but your staff at the baggage check/boarding pass counter were extremely conscientious and effective. They anticipated our dilemma and had our baggage removed from the delayed flight and put us onto a Korean Air flight that got us to Seoul on time to make our international connection to Tokyo. It was a long and tiring day of travel but because of your profession personnel it, including those at Korean Air, we avoided what could have been a much tougher situations unfortunately I can’t recall the names of the staff involved. I want to say the was a lady last named Joon and one last named Kim. There were other staff too, a young man that brought our luggage back to the check-in counter, and a lady that ran us through the terminal to Korean air and escorted us through security to the boarding gate. all in all it was amazing and thank you to your company and fine staff."
Cons: "The wonderful staff that give such excellent service."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional"
Pros: "The crew was kind. The Meal was great. All good."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accomodating."

Pros: "the very punctual flight"
Pros: "Korean BBQ"
Cons: "No power outlets on a 14 hour flight! No wifi. Tinynild screens."
Cons: "Entertainment headphones did not have good sound quality; there was no option for English captions for most of the movies."
Pros: "The crew were efficient, nice and friendly. There was a sick passenger and I think they were able to help them out. Even though there was a slight delay in the take off but we managed to stay on time."
Cons: "The bathroom was slightly flooded, one bathroom the water wasn't running so I couldn't wash my hands. There are not enough amenities in the bathroom. The food could use a little improvement. Waiting for the baggage claim took too long."
Pros: "Entertainment was nice with a good variety."
Cons: "Terrible seats. It seems like asiana is going out of their way to make their economy seats as uncomfortable as possible."
Pros: "Food was excellent at least some of the time. And pretty good the other times. It was also nice to get slippers/"
Pros: "Large body plane, A380 is exactly what's needed"
Cons: "Need more movie selections and USB outlets don't work given it's a newer plane. Was the same when I traveled to Seoul."
Pros: "Access to restrooms through out the plane should be encouraged to avoid traffic by users in one particular area"
Pros: "Both of my roung trip got delayed for about an hour. The service was very so so compared to Korean Air. I couldn't get tickets through Korean Air because of no ticket available but next time I will definitely look forward Korean Air only."

Pros: "The service and the food"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Pros: "Great service, comfy spacious seats, decent meal service"
Cons: "Food was a bit bland"
Pros: "The service and experience was excellent"
Cons: "I only wish the seats were more comfortable for such a long flight. I understand that the length of the flight cannot be changed… It is just difficult to set the entire time. I wish the premium seats cost less so that I could afford to lay down"
Pros: "Everyone was so personable. We had 4 adults , 2 boys and a baby girl so it was hard to get everyone situated but with the staff on the plane it was just simplicity. All of our needs were met , wether it was someone wanting an extra blanket or the baby needing food or even helping the 2 boys get situated before and after take off . They apparently love babies because they couldn't get enough of ours and were always wanting to play with her and make her smile (which goes along way) and that helped her not feel so groggy on the plane . They know it's a long flight so they get you comfortable even down to giving you slippers and great tasting food."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the long flight but that's not the staffs fault, it was inevitable if your flying halfway across the world . the plane had 12 inch touch screen tv with music, movies, games , news , kids entertainment and even how to learn Korean so it it was very helpful in keeping you entertained throughout the plane ride ."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and very helpful. They were attentive and constantly providing beverages. The films were nice and a large selection. The food was delicious and it was overall a lovely flight which was nice since it was over 13 hours in length."
Cons: "It would have been nice for slightly more space but it is definitely not the most cramped economy class I have sat in. Additionally, it would have been nice to have different movies from my flight to Seoul but there is so much too choose from that this is not a real issue either."
Pros: "Everything was great except for delay."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "they to change the movie selection going to and from food was just okay Service was excellent No problems experienced"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "My travel with asiana is excellent. The crew are so professional and helpful..except for boarding need to be more organized.."

Pros: "Cabin crew were charming and v. attentive. Food was particularly good. generous with additionals, food ,snacks,beverages etc. Decent leg room , comfortable seats."
Pros: "On my long-haul flight from Seoul to JFK - the middle seat in my row was empty, the seats were much more spacious than Cathay Pacific, and I appreciated how there wasn't a 10 minute promotional video before watching every movie/TV show as with other airlines. I am very satisfied with this airline overall!"
Pros: "THE staff were really nice and kind."
Cons: "Not enough snack small amount of wine usually you get 1 small bottle. NOT enough movies choice. No control on the air over your head."
Pros: "Everything was great, to be honest. If this was 3, 4 years ago, I'd have given it 5 stars across the board without hesitation."
Cons: "No wifi on the flights means I'm limited to working offline and Asiana's IFE system, which was amazing but had limited selection."
Pros: "I like how they gave us an empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. It was better on the way in. Boarding took forever. It didnt seem like they came around with beverages."
Pros: "seats are comfortable for being economy"
Cons: "food was not great as used to be and for a long flight not to have extra snacks options its a bit hard."
Pros: "From Seoul, the staff were all quick and prompt."
Cons: "JFK Front desk clerk( she seemed to be an indian or Latin Indian) were so rude and she looked to have no idea for her job. Sorry to grade for " Boarding, Mediocore" Nevertheless, the girl made us too confused. our departure to HK thru Seoul, she gave us boarding pass only to Seoul and my husband uses a cane due to leg pain. ( he can not bend his leg properly). I asked her to give a front seat. She simply ignored my request. At least, she should better say yes or no! However, other staffs helped us!"
Pros: "IN flight attendants are great, always willing to help and with a smile."
Cons: "I can see the airline growing ans some of the perks disappearing."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and the food for economy was good."
Cons: "13 hour from Seoul to NYC and the crew never once went into and took care of any of the four bathrooms in the lower cabin in economy class. On the flight two weeks before from JFK - they did a great job on the bathrooms.On both flights there was no need for the constant interruptions telling us to put the seat belts on. Just turn on the light no need to make an announcements in two languages."
Cons: "There were some disrespectful passengers who were disruptive during the flight."
Pros: "New aircraft with personal TVs; good food; efficient and professional service by the cabin crew"
Pros: "Better entertainment options."
Cons: "Loud children all over, my dietary choices for all three meals were messed up ever though I spoke to three different levels of Asiana employees to verify (due to the mistake on the flight to Korea). When I tried to explain to the flight attendant my dietary needs they couldn't be bothered and got an attitude when I asked for the meal that was being served. The flight crew was unfriendly. The bathrooms were crowded and chaotic after meals with no attempt on the flight crew to organize or redistribute the crowds (unsafe situation could occur). I waited 15 minutes at one point because there was simply no order. Some flight attendants were better than others but overall, they played favorites with certain groups."
Pros: "No complaint, everything was good."
Pros: "They had a show of different traditional Korean costumes. The girls then allowed the passengers to take pictures with them. A fun time."
Cons: "It was a long long flight. I wish they used those black holes for travel."
Cons: "Seats need more cushioning"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I had requested an aisle seat due to my recently broken ankle and I was placed in the middle of a 4 seat row. I asked the desk before boarding if there was any possibility of changing due to my ankle, and I felt like the employee did not even try to find an open seat, or make accommodations for me. This made it very difficult to get enough blood pumping through my leg and left me feeling anxious the entire flight."
Pros: "The asian food options were excellent. The multimedia console on the seat was also full of options. However, the best thing of all is the USB and AC power supplied."
Cons: "The western food options were terrible. They clearly misjudged how many people would order each option. I lucked out, but I heard a lot of people trying to order the asian option but received the western one since they ran out of the asian. The boarding process could be better. They did not use any kind of boarding zones other than first/business/economy class, so once economy class was called there was just a mad dash to get in line causing it to be huge and the boarding process to be disorganized."
