Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "Premium economy"
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not enough food served (only two meals on a sixteen hour flight) and tasted okay. Crew was not all friendly."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."

Cons: "I have no complaint"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."

We bought the ticket November 11 it did not say we needed to get tested before flying When we went to check in there was a long line because a lot of people that was flying out did not know also about getting tested before flying Eva employees said that this protocol started December 1st if that’s the case why didn’t they email travelers that bought tickets before December 1st And let them know that covid19 test needed. Also at check in we were inline for 2 hours just to let us know we couldn’t fly out they should have a Monitor saying “ ATTENTION PASSENGERS IF YOU DON’T HAVE COVID-19 TEST RESULTS IN HAND YOU CANNOT A BOARD.” So that people didn’t half to stay in line for so long."

Cons: "None"
Pros: "the food on eva was better than delta and united--definitely edible unlike the others. the stewardesses are a little bit stingy with the wine. they give such tiny tiny portions-like 2 ounces at a time--they said i might get drunk. no one can get drunk with what they give. the stewardesses are polite enough. the entertainment was pretty good--good choice of movies. like all other airlines, the seats are too squished together. more room would have been appreciated."

Pros: "Like most were the friendly and professional crew, nice big screen individual entertainment system with many movies, clean bathrooms, and my seafood meal was awesome!"
Cons: "Didn't like that we departed almost an hour late for no apparent reason - something about waiting for luggage to be loaded. The side dishes on the entree could be better."
Pros: "I loved all the ammenities like slippers, blankets, and also the bathroom ones like toothbrush and sanitary pads. This proved your airline has great attetion to detail. Also the food selection was delicious."

The crew is horrible. Especially at the ticketing and checking counter. Very irresponsible, lazy and no emphathy.

More monitoring of passengers wearing musks. Some passengers had their musks off and flights attendants didn’t enforce. That was disappointing

Pros: "Easy Boarding, nice crew"
Cons: "More vegetarian food options"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."

Cons: "same remark : Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. 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: "Crews behavior was amazing"
Cons: "Menu/food Less choice"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."

Cons: "I flew on 4 separate planes and each one of them had noticeable issues with cracked interior components and torn materials. My seat was reassigned at check-in from the one I has selected 2 months earlier without notifying me. I went from a window seat to an aisle set for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "More subtitled movies in English."
Pros: "The food and the service"
Cons: "4 hours layover plus 3 hours delay. Horrible."
Cons: "I’m regarded as disabled, usually I have TSA pre-check privilege in most of the airline I took before but unfortunately, I couldn’t get any from Asiana. The guy helped me on checking in told me that AsIan’s didn’t provide this service to the customer. I felt not quite happy but ok with this. The one made me feel upset is they didn’t give me pre-boarding even though they already noticed that I’m disabled. I needed to wait on the line for over 25 minutes, my left leg very tired. I can walk but I can’t stand for long time, it hurts my back and leg. I got almost same style Vegetarian food in both dinner and breakfast, all vegetables, no tofu at all."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Very limited options for food and entertainment. It is not the top-tier experience like Cathay or Singapore airlines. A good tier-2 airlines."
Pros: "Tons of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving San Francisco, connecting flight from Seoul to Manila was also late. Service was okay. Entertainment okay."
Pros: "It was 12hrs."
Pros: "Great airline staff, good food, smooth flight."
Cons: "Fewer movie selections than other airlines. Would have liked a small pouch of personal kit—toothbrush, eye mask, etc."
Pros: "Food was good, friendly service"
Cons: "Movies were not good, not enough selection"
Pros: "I liked the seat and having a full row. Food was better and healthier than most airline food. I had the Korean dinner of bibimbap with miso soup and pickled radish and the Westerm breakfast of a cheese omelette with vegetables and a fruit cup."
Cons: "Too hot! Hard to sleep when it’s near 80 degrees. Tip: sprinkle water on blanket for a cooling cover."
Pros: "I love the friendliness of Asiana Airlines crew. I know I will have what I need to travel comfortably."
Pros: "The comfort of seats and leg room. Professional staff, excellent cuisine."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite.."
Cons: "I liked everything .."
Pros: "I loved the leg room and the pleasant classical music that was playing during boarding and exiting."
Cons: "I didn’t realize some of the food was going to be so spicy. Perhaps a bit of a warning next time would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Atleast inform me about the fact so I can decide if I want to keep the seat or ask to be transferred. I understand they want to cater to needs of animal lovers but please understand not everyone is comfortable around animals."
Cons: "i did not like that i was seated next to someone with a pet dog that never stops barking. I hardly slept and the dog smell is very unpleasant I lost my appetite."
Pros: "Delicious food"
Pros: "I appreciated the food and service from the stewardesses was great. The red embroidered apron was a nice touch."
Cons: "My luggage was late, and I did not receive it until 24 hours after I landed in Hanoi. This caused a big inconvenience. I had packed my things very carefully, and most of what I needed the first day was in there."
Pros: "very attentive and kind hearted flight attendants, asiana airline always gives me the best impression and satisfying flight experience always. Thank you always!"
Cons: "the aircraft I was in supposedly provide wifi service, however I could not connect to it,tried and checked several times during the flight,it was not available. Except that part,every other parts:perfect!"
Cons: "I don't like the first come first serve boarding system its chaos out there"
Pros: "The large leg space/room!"
Cons: "The food was limited and it's actually not that good."
Pros: "Toothbrushes/paste and mouthwash were provided in flight restrooms. Staff frequently came by and checked on passengers with drinks or snacks to ensure optimum comfort. Flight staff boarded the plane swiftly while also greeting each passenger warmly. In flight meals were great. Flight was short which was happy."
Pros: "Cleanliness, friendliness and calm flight. Food selection in Economy was limited but quality of Korean offerings was good."
Cons: "Some restrooms were not supplied properly. Would have appreciated hot towel or other refreshment before landing after 12 hour flight."
Pros: "The service was top-notch, and so was the food. On my flight from San Francisco to Korea, things were just fine, Though I wish I had the window seat that was actually adjacent to the window, and not separated from the window by a desk/table arrangement. Aside from that, everything was grand."
Cons: "The flight from Korea to Bangkok was a different story. The seats resembled those you would find in premium economy on other airlines. While the food and service were good, the entertainment was abysmal. Basically, you were watching TV with poor quality reception and no ability to choose what you wanted to watch other than flipping through the channels to see what was already on. Although this was nearly a seven hour international flight, The entertainment package felt like something you would encounter on a cheap charter bus to Vegas. If I knew this was the aircraft I would be taking, I would never have booked on Asiana. The flight to Bangkok was really substandard."
Pros: "Staff were excellent. They're the big part of the reason why we fly Asiana. American-owned airlines are rude, old and crabby."
Cons: "The food was hit or miss. Our first meal was ok. 2nd meal was just a sandwich which is not that great. The 3rd meal which was chicken was dry and tasteless. My husband and I couldn't eat it. It's like eating a styrofoam cup."
Pros: "i think asiana is one of the best airline in market for their professional services. thanks."
Cons: "Time delay."
Pros: "The food was decent for airline food, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Way too much turbulence. Not sure if this was due to being at the back of the plane or if the weather was bad, but it was constant and very jarring. For a 12 hour flight this makes things extremely uncomfortable. Also the plane was a little older and the seats were hard and uncomfortable. The in flight entertainment system was also hard to use, unresponsive touch screen and strange little remote. Additionally we sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for flight documentation. This not only caused us to miss our bus once we arrived at our final destination, but also added another hour to an already very long flight. The captain was not very forthcoming with information about the delay. Overall the experience was unpleasant and I don't look forward to having to repeat it."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Plane clean, food not great but decent. Takeoff right on tme."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no leg room, made for a long, uncomfortable 11 hour flight. Small selection of movies."
Pros: "Asiana service"
Cons: "Old plane. Small screens and worn out fixtures."
Pros: "Very comfortable, good service. Only thing I didn't like was the way they do the entertainment system. You change "channels" and to watch the thing you want you have to find it and then rewind to the beginning. The music channels loop after about 6 songs."
Pros: "The attendants are super nice."
Cons: "I do not like the time of departure. People can still work if the flight is at night and not at 1230PM."
Pros: "Crews are very attentive and great with their service!s. Way better than many big Asia airlines!"
Cons: "The plane OZ 211 is so old and the entertainment system is very very old! The seats aren't very comfortable either!"
Pros: "Boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "No personal tv on flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff"
Cons: "Food was just okay No power outlets in economy seats Short delay"
Pros: "The cabin was surprisingly warm unlike other airlines I've been on. They also provided nice toiletries in the bathroom like face toner and mouth wash."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable especially for such a long flight"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew were very attentive and personally escorted us to our connecting flight to make sure we made it on time, as our first flight was delayed. Decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Flight 1 hour delayed. Seat is kinda hard."
Pros: "Everything was Ok. I appreciate Asiana airline. When I was stuck in Air port for 8hours, they saved me. I had a lot of luggages at that time. Because I would go back Korea. They were so nice and helped me quckily."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Entertainment - difficult to find movie channel guide"
Cons: "UNITED CONTINENTAL SERVICE GOT ME TO HOUSTON ALIVE. BUT EVERYTHING ABOUT THE TERMINAL AT SFO TO THE AIRPLANE (A 320) AND SERVICE ON BOARD ARE VERY DISAPPOINTING AND I DREAD MY RETURN FLIGHT."
Cons: "Flight attendants were inattentive & plane was dirty"
