Until January 7, direct flights from the UK are temporarily suspended.
All travelers, including Korean nationals, must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours of their departure. Arriving passengers must submit the PCR test result on an original form issued by the testing center in the country of origin (in the English or Korean language) to quarantine authorities.

All arriving passengers are required to download and respond to daily questions via a Self-Diagnosis Mobile App for 14 days.
Travelers, including Korean nationals without a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours of their departure, are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine at a government-designated facility, at their own expense. The nightly cost at these facilities could range from $100 to $150 USD per night (approximately $1,400-$2,100 USD total). Travelers that fall into this category will be required to sign a release form agreeing to these conditions prior to boarding a plane. Travelers who refuse to sign the form will be denied boarding. In some cases, Korean authorities have permitted immediate blood relatives or spouses of long-term residents to self-quarantine at their family’s home. For this, travelers would need to provide proof of relationship (e.g., marriage or birth certificate), and should understand that Korean immigration officials have the final authority to approve quarantine arrangements.

Most travelers transiting through Korean airports (who do not pass through immigration) have no quarantine requirement for stays less than 24 hours. However, transit passengers may need to undergo temperature checks or fill out health questionnaires. Transit passengers should confirm entry requirements at their onward destination. Symptomatic individuals will be subject to a COVID-19 test and hospitalization if found positive. Passengers who do not show symptoms and/or test negative may continue their journey. Please note, there are no COVID testing facilities available in airport transit areas.
Travelers should confirm with the airline(s) before departure that their bags have been checked through to their final destination (as transit passengers are not able to collect and re-check in baggage on arrival in Incheon Airport).

They didn't need me but i thought they should have at least enquired as to where the parent was of 2 11 yr olds. They were also curt trying to rush us off the flight as my daughter was trying to locate a lost item as we arrived. She has limited sight and we need time to get off and to find things.... given she has lost an iPad, and very expensive reading glasses and other things on the trips that span 24 - 36 hrs."

Cons: "Signage at Honolulu airport is unclear - -difficult to find connecting terminal"
Pros: "Cabin crew was fine, nice smooth flight."

Cons: "The lack of legroom in economy class is a serious problem on long flights. I am only 6' tall/145 pounds, Window and middle seats are are not an option for me. This fact Is a strong disincentive to travel (no, I am not willing to pay the upcharge for the minimal legroom increase, i.e. to make that charge worth paying considerably more room would have to be provided."
Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."
Pros: "Our seats did not recline, but were locked in the fully upright position, making it impossible to sleep. If this is policy for ANA, many customers will go to other airlines."
Pros: "ANA have, as usual, good service throughout, very good entertainment selection and food is good. The 787 is fairly spacious and comfortable."

When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
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: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"

Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."

Pros: "Airport staff."
Cons: "4 hour flight wolith no entertainment system and old aircraft was a huge drop I am frequent Qatar airways customer, and this flight was the worst"
Pros: "food was decent and the staff on the plane were pleasant."
Cons: "Qatar airlines blatantly lied to me on several occasions and treated me like I was dirt. They lost my baggage and re assigned my seat several times each time pushing me further back into the plane and eventually putting me into a crowded row when the plane was virtually empty."
Pros: "It was just am awesome experience. By God's grace we had a safe trip and God helped us. Interestingly, Qatar airways is quite excellent and commendable in their professional disposition."
Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Cons: "Mashed connection"
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was great. Leg room good on 787"
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal and they didn't have one for me. The breakfast was terrible. Green beans and strawberry yoghurt!?"
Pros: "The entire experience from booking, to checking-in, to the actual experience on board the flight were so smooth, I thought it was too good to be true. Turbulence usually makes me nervous, but I barely felt it on this flight. Finally and most importantly, on such a long-haul flight, the entertainment options were amazing,"
Cons: "The food and the Duty Free shopping selection could improve a little bit."
Cons: "I had to track down a flight attendant in order to get the dinner. They seem to have asked most other people, but just went right by me until I caught their attention."
Pros: "The diabetic meals"
Cons: "Headphones and more snacks."
Pros: "Great check-in with Weimao, if I remember right. Got through security fairly quickly. Boarding was fine, a long way to the back . . ."
Cons: "The worst earphones I’ve ever used. They fell out at least 100 times while trying to watch Dumbo. There seemed to be reasonably good programming, but I wasn’t going to continue with those earphones. My ears were sore after trying many ways to get them to stay in my ears."
Pros: "The airplane is clean all the time."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, night food and nice on board equipment."
Cons: "No air bridge from Gate 213, It takes transfer bus to Gate 554. It is uncomfort under such hot and humid weather condition."
Pros: "The ability to select a special meal prior to flight was fantastic"
Cons: "At times the flight crew were incredibly hard to hear/understand via the intercom."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "Chairs in business class in A 330 were not too good in my view"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was short"
Cons: "Plane was dated, seats had a smell, tv were old"
Pros: "I like because they used a new aircraft."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "Like everything but the seats. The flight attendants are amazing."
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was the chairs weren’t as comfortable as the seats from the flight to taiwan. My back hurt more."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and service was great on all China airlines."
Cons: "On this particular plane it was very uncomfortable. It was extremely noisy (the plane not people) and the exhaust was so strong it made me feel so sick, nauseous and from what I can tell others felt the same. This was the only plane that was like this of the four planes I took on this trip. The rest were excellent overall. Thank you."
Pros: "Even with some delay taking off, we were only a few minutes late at LAX. Overall flight was nice and uneventful."
Cons: "Baggage is not First In First Out. Although I was probably one of the first few passengers coming out of immigration, my bags came in last. It took about 45 mins to 1 hrs after immigration to get my bags. Was it because they were first loaded in Taipei, since our connection form Manila arrived 4 hrs before the LAX flight?"
Pros: "Airplane it's nice and entertainment too"
Cons: "Both flights were delay... Crew very rude and not helping when asked Food was very bad"
Pros: "Excellent condition of Aircraft"
Pros: "Good and friendly service, comfortable seat"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The plane was kept really cold and entertainment system didnt work very well."
Pros: "Flight landed on-time and was smooth. Staff was helpful and profession. My request for vegetarian meals failed (might have been my fault) and the staff really went out of their way to make sure I got vegetarian meals anyway. And the vegetarian meals were excellent. Good experience on a long flight."
Pros: "They operate the Airbus A350, a nice very modern plane on this route"
Pros: "Flight attendants were organized and professional. English was mediocre at best."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. No padding in the bottom cushion."
Pros: "good leg room, excellent food, service in Economy better than I've had in some other first class."
Cons: "A350 seat cushions are a little short for us tall folks."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, staff was friendly. Seats were okay, fairly spacious. It was nice that they gave everyone both a blanket and a pillow."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty and the selection was terrible. I was given the same pasta for two meals (first time I had a choice, second time only pasta again). Even the same type of pasta but the second time there was some chicken in it too. It was gross."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS SMOOTH AND QUICK"
Cons: "ONLY WATER TO DRINK WITH THE FOOD NO ORANGEJUICE APPLE JUICE OR COKE OR 7 UP"

Pros: "Nice crew, decent food"
Cons: "Seats even narrower than the 777-309ER"
Pros: "Exactly what you would want a flight to be!"
Pros: "The comfortability of the ride was great. Seats were comfortable, easy to sleep in."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The headphones weren't comfortable at all and the movies weren't easy to hear at all."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and nice"
Cons: "They make me pay an extra fee of $150 for coming 1 hours before departure time."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Ding Ding was very friendly and welcoming. This was my first flight with China Airlines, but it certainly won't be my last! An excellent experience!"
Pros: "Found a lot of new movies and foods tasted great"
Cons: "Slow to board the plane and the seat near emergency door was not very comfortable."
Pros: "Great atmosphere on the plane and very clean."
Cons: "I would have liked to have more vegetarian and vegan food options on board the aircraft."
Pros: "flight was only 2.5 hours long, but very good service for such a short flight flight attendant attention to detail, and kindness were much appreciated. multi lingual was also impressive alcoholic drink selection very good seats quite comfortable"
Cons: "entertainment non-existent for business class, or for my row (row 1). flight only 2.5 hours so no big deal, but entertainment on longer flight would have been a problem (no personal screen) suggest something like a competitor airline does (american company name, begins with "U"). use on-board wi-fi and we stream in entertainment onto our personal devices...."
Pros: "I had a sore throat and the flight attendant not only suggested hot water with lemon but made sure my glass was always full. I got off the flight feeling much better. Thank you for having great staff."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight I can recall was pleasant"
Cons: "From the time we board at Taipei, the gentleman checking our ticket was rude. The flight crew member was not straighten out the customer who are loud and causing trouble for other customer. Seat was uncomfortable and small. I've suffered back pain due to the cramped seating and also my seat reclining was broken, every time I've tried reclining it just snap back. The food was bad, the bun/biscuit was hard when given to us."
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite"
Cons: "No information, lack of communication"
Pros: "Online was very strict in not discounting anything. There was room in Business class and I paid full price. Most airlines have a deep discount when searched a few days before the flight. So, that might fill the vacancies in business and make me a faithful passenger. The disability assistance was very good in Bangkok and Taipei. Disability assistance was horrible(wheelchair) assistance in SFO. I had NO assistance for 90 minutes to obtain a wheelchair while .d waiting to board my departure from SFO . The same was true but worse on the return to SFO. I was let off the plane LAST and the wheelchair was not there and I waited. The wheelchair person parked me outside the gate and said NOTHING and walked away. After 15 minutes waiting for his return, I went on my own and nearly passed out waiting in the horrible immigration line. It took 120 minutes from leaving the plane to getting in my car at the airport. Ridiculoius and a violation of Americans with Disabilities ACT."
Cons: "Already stated."
Pros: "The crew members were nice."
Cons: "The seats are small. The food was not that great."
Pros: "Customer service was great."
Cons: "My daughters audio didn't work at all in her entertainment system and my audio was really terrible. We did expect to watch movies and was unhappy that the audio wasn't working on a business class flight."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Cons: "the service from flight attendants and gate members"
Pros: "747. Older aircraft, not much to make the passenger smile here. Flight was short!"
Cons: "Boarding was bad. Not done by zones. Everything is willy-nilly at boarding in Taiwan. First to board were families with small children (even before first class). Fine, except: There were several families with small children lined up at first. The gate agent was about to board them, then she stopped and went out into the gate's seating area and started grabbing families with teenagers (only) to board with the families with small children. Seriously, she went and got several families that had teens (no kids in the fam under age 10) only, and lined them up behind the fams with smaller kids. What an interesting look on the faces of the first-class passengers waiting in a separate line to board. After boarding the new category of "All Families", first class boarded. Then the masses. Once again, zones were not utilized by gate agents, and we all boarded at the same time, ignoring the zones (front/middle/rear). Once in my seat I could not find a charging outlet, nor a USB outlet. And wifi? I asked the F/A. Her response: "We don't have. Sorry. Its 1 hour 50 minute flight. You are OK." Really! No, sweet woman, YOU will be OK, working. I will have to waste 2 hours not getting something productive done. Entertainment unit on seatback: Waste of time. Even if it worked, the sound requires the old twin-male plugin jack on the armrest. Nobody has one of those in his pocket, and the F/A's never passed any out. I can hear it now, had I asked for one: "1 hour and 50 minute flight. You are OK.""
Pros: "777. Things I liked: On-board service was good. Food: OK, nothing to write home about. Onboard electrical and USB outlets nice!"
Cons: "Things I disliked: Boarding. I got my seat assignment weeks early, back of the plane and aisle, Boarding Zone 1. Check! Once at the gate, specialty groups boarded first (small children, first class). As the were boarding (LAX), the throngs lined up willy-nilly. The gate agents did not call for boarding by zones, all the passengers boarded together (mixed zones). This is a recipe for disaster. I was one of the last persons to board, and by the time I got to my seat (back of the plane), all the overhead bins were full (folks in the middle of the plane could not find overhead room, so they marched to the back and took my space). Had I boarded by zone (#1), I would have gotten to the back early. F/A's struggled greatly to get everyone's carryon stowed overhead, but a number of us had our carryons stowed many rows away from our seats. Also, the bins were so full, that they were dangerously heavy, and even the F/A's had to have help in closing them. Great! We were discouraged from opening the overheads in flight (near-constant turbulence). Great! Can't get at my stuff during the long night flight (its in a bin way in front of me, and we can't open the bins). Entertainment unit on the seatback. The system is fine, but its touch-screen, and my 'touch' screen was not accepting my inputs very well (had to touch them half a dozen times each). There is no remote control (handheld). Never watched anything, as we never were given headphones. Use your own headphone, you say? Where does that bad boy plug in, I say? That kind of thing should be explained in the pre-flight video, possibly. Blissfully I slept thru a good chunk of the flight."

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."

Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."

Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Service was good"
