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: "Great smooth flight!"
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."

Cons: "Very tight seating"
Pros: "Seat and space friendly workers."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "I thought the food was far bette than other airlines. The flight attendances were very helpful and kind. I love the little package i get on the seat. Toothbrush and tooth paste, a pair of slippers, blanket and pillow. Headsets are distributed later. The plane was warm for me so I used the blanket for back support instead."
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: "Great food and smooth flight"
Pros: "All the flight attendants were very nice and they had amazing attitudes--especially on my flight going TO Hawai'i. All the flight attendants had smiles on their faces and they were always ready and willing to assist passengers. Every time they delivered something, they were always smiling; even when passengers asked for more assistance, the flight attendants delivered service with a smile!! Amazing!! This was my first time flying Korean Air, but it will not be my last!! My experience with Korean Air was fantastic!! I will definitely fly Korean Air again!! Thank you!!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very polite. Restrooms were kept clean by the cabin crew"

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: "The meals were really good for plane food, the flight attendants came around often offering water or juice, and really competitive price for tickets."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Acceptable legroom. Appreciated the cups of water and juice served regularly. Very good breakfast."
Cons: "Hostesses could have redistributed passengers to empty seats so everyone could have been more comfortable, especially for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Didn't have any problems and the attendants were always helpful. Nice big screens to watch movies."
Cons: "One attendant, a Korean guy, was a bit strange. Told him I lived in Korea and didn't need the arrival card, but he insisted I take it. Ooooooookkkkkkkk...???"
Cons: "As I was about to board, I was denied carrying on my backpack with the few items I would need for the flight, so I was forced to put them into my carry-on suitcase which was loaded elsewhere, out of reach.. The insanity of it all - so glad the woman can count to two - is that I was forced by this angry person to carry my laptop and tablet onto the airplane in my hand, as she absolutely would not allow me to put them into my empty backpack, claiming this would constitute a third item. Of course, no one else was forced to take their computers out of their protective cases, only myself, because it was a backpack. I am 66 years old, travelling alone, and frankly am not the only international traveler who experiences unbelievable rudeness when in US airports."
Pros: "I liked crews courteous speaking and manner that made me feel comfortable and cared for."
Cons: "None."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good meals, able to enjoy a few good movies"
Cons: "Can't book seat prior to check in"
Pros: "You can go on a free city tour if you are transiting at Incheon airport. Also fantastic public area for transiting customer with free showers, upholstered day bed, charge stations. Paid massages , Paid airport hotels or lounges with buffet."
Cons: "There was nothing we didn't like about our flight to Seoul"
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: "Delta crew was awesome"
Cons: "Running to flight"
Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."
Cons: "China Air was alright. Just didn't like the whole running around the airport trying to figure out what counter to go to. Also I am not a big fan of getting transported via bus from terminal to plane"
Pros: "I like that KE is lenient with the baggage allowance of 23kgs per piece that some can still go up to about 25kgs due to measurement system used (Metric vs. US). I also like that KE has bigger leg room even in the economy class."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that KE charges the 3rd baggage (excess baggage) US$200 for only up to 23kgs. Anything beyond that is additional $100 for only up to 32kgs. another $100 beyond 32kgs. I will state for a fact that Cathay Pacific only charges US$150 for the 3rd baggage and is already up to 32kgs. Perhaps this is something KE would like to look into. In spite of Cathay Pacific's excess baggage rates, they have a smaller leg room in the economy class."
Pros: "Other than the cramp seat on the a330 from incheon to bangkok, the rest of the flights experience were excellent. From the check in desk to cabin crews and the staffs at incheon were amazing. I dont know how some carrier get away with such an inferior customer service! Kudos to the Korean Air!"
Cons: "The food choice is good as long as you stick to the korean menu. It would be good to have a light menu such as congie or rice poridge for a meal. As certain type of meal can be very unkind to stomach on a long flight."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and nice crew."
Cons: "Food made my partner nauseous."
Cons: "The turbulence was terribly frightening."

Pros: "Exit row."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Crew AND passengers were great, polite & calm. Seats are kinda squashy, tight. Food was yummy."

Pros: "Amazing crew and food and entertainment selection!"
Cons: "Honestly nothing it was perfect"
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Stop charging for checked bags"
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Flight attendants thank SkyMiles members by name at some point during the trip, very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."

Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Direct flight on time"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"
Cons: "I was placed on an earlier flight as soon as I arrived at the Portland airport. The flight was full, there was no room for my bag in the overhead bins. The bag was checked, not to just Seattle but all the way to Venice. Well, surprise, surprise, the bag was lost on the way to Venice. KLM does not allow enough time in Amsterdam for luggage to make a connecting flight."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."

Pros: "I like everything!! From now on I'm going to travel with Aeromexico Very comfortable great service friendly."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "Got to fly on the a brand new 737-900 and had plenty of room to fit my laptop so I could work. Friendly crew, didn't feel like a farm animal being herded on to a transport to be taken to slaughter like I do on other airlines."
Cons: "In flight WiFi was inoperable for most of the flight making it hard to work."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
