I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."

Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."

Pros: "Friendly and approachable cabin crew."
Cons: "Boarding was not good. No clear announcement. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Entertainment system doesn't have a touch screen like other airlines. They give you ear but buds instead of head phones. Alright they gave us headphones for our young son you had to put the foam covers on yourself and they kept coming off. Not a very good selection of movies. Good is bland and not very good options."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Pros: "Outstanding crew! Super attentive in my section.. I had seat 43E."
Cons: "Seat was a little tight for me, but not bad... I'm 6"2 and 185 lbs"
Pros: "The airline and staff appear to be friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Seating in economy is tight. You really cannot move without annoying the passengers on either side. This also makes eating difficult."
Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were good but not as spacious as some other business class airline seats."

Cons: "It ran a bit late"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"

Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "Everything was really smooth in terms of transitions."
Cons: "I didn’t like how people had different packages and I hadn’t realized that I didn’t have the food package."
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My ticket did not say that it was a no luggage,no meal ticket & I printed off the E ticket & no where on the E ticket did it state no luggage.....I think that needs to be shown clearly when we book. I had to pay for 1 bag & it would have been $250 but ANZ did work with me &changed the ticket for $125 name-Marjorie Kalama"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the older Japanese attendant’s attitude in helping everyone onboard. A family sitting 2 seats in front moved around a lot while putting their baby and toddler to sleep for the night flight. The attendant discreetly gave those of us earplugs and eye masks to help us shut out the noise. Also, her smile and pleasant attitude made it an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I had to pay extra to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Awful service, they put me waiting for more than an hour to say that I was in the overbook list so they would need to include me in a flight 3 hours later in another airline. Outrageous!"
Pros: "Awesome in flight entertainment! Very corteous and polite crew!"
Cons: "Im midsized asian, i the seats are too small"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Cons: "For some unknown reason, I can not lower my seat when I wanted to get some sleep. As the air plane took off at 11:55pm, I was really sleep. After 10 minutes of maneuver, I decided to ask a flight attendant to help me figure out what happened to my seat. I pressed the button asking for attendant and waited for 5 minutes, no response. So I pressed the button again. IT showed that I had already pressed the button. So I kept waiting. But then no one ever came for me the 9 hours until it was time for the meal before getting off. Sitting straight sleeping was a really terrible experience!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Drinks were excellent including tea!"
Cons: "Breakfast could be better. My son didn't get his choice on one flight and there was not much he would eat in choices. Make it more general so even teenagers/kids can enjoy. Crew could be nicer, especially in Premier Economy when we pay so much money!"
Pros: "Very professional; enjoyed entertainment options"
Pros: "We think Air New Zealand is by far the best airline we've ever flown on. Service, food, entertainment were all superlative"
Cons: "I was issued a ticket with a window seat as I had requested. However, when I boarded and sat in the seat I was assigned, I was moved because it turned out that the couple that was sitting next to me had purchased the seat so they could lay down. I was seated at another window seat, but it turned out the couple in that row had paid extra to have that seat empty as well. I was not only re-seated before the plane took off, but then I was re-seated THREE more times until finally being put in a middle seat after the flight was in flight. To top it all off, the plane was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to my final destination."
Pros: "Short, friendly people and was on time. Awesome all around"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"
Pros: "Crew was nice and clean plane."
Cons: "Wasn't aware that on this international flight we needed to do something more to get the basic services. Evidently there are classes of fares that don't rate basic food and drinks. Felt like steerage class. After they rebooted their system we were able to finally order and pay for food and drinks. Never been treated this poorly on an Air New Zealand flight."
Pros: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."
Pros: "Seats were good. Lots of movies to watch. Good headphones. Food was not bad. They had chocolate ice cream for desert! Crew was nice. I would fly again."
Cons: "Free Wi-fi would be cool."
Pros: "Good house of entertainment and food was good for a short flight!"
Cons: "Nothing that stood out overall a good flight but I've had better."
Pros: "good movie selection"
Cons: "we were o board @ 7pm & the captain & his crew arrived @ 7pm which made the flight arrive late & stressful for many transferring passengers"
Pros: "A good amount of legroom (in economy!) and really pleasant staff."
Cons: "Paying $233 for an extra bag was ridiculous."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, but not as attentive as the men we had from LA to Auckland. This exit row seat was near 5 bathrooms so not as good a seat as LA to Auckland."
Cons: "No vegetarian meal, lot of turbulance"
Pros: "The beef dinner was exceptional, like dining out but in a small space ."
Cons: "Like all economy flights, it was a little cramped."
Cons: "Seat assignment wasn't registered in the system and even though we bought the ticket together we couldn't get seats together - had to pay for premium seats. That's the first time ever I don't get assigned a seat with my travel companion. #MAJORFAIL"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight with NZ with a 9 hour layover in Auckland. Going to Auckland carry on allowance 10Kg in agreement with website. From Auckland to Melbourne carry on weight limit 7 Kg. WHAT A HORRIBLE WAY TO TREAT YOUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS WHO FLY MULTIPLE LEGS WITH NZ."
Pros: "Ive flown domestically countless times and I love flying but when coming home from vacation in NZ I was all about Air New Zealand! This was my first long haul flight so I have nothing to compare to. The staff was wonderful, the flight was uneventful allowing me to enjoy my in flight entertainment, which was varied enough to keep me entertained. Staff was responsive during my flight to and from and seats were reasonably comfortable. Seats were prepped with blanket pillow and headphones. I loved the seat to seat messaging. Food was forgettable. Mostly I snacked on protein bars so I didnt eat much but there was ice cream at one point!"
Pros: "Checkin was easy and fast. The lounge in Auckland was comfortable and well supplied."
Pros: "The Entertainment was amazing, I really enjoyed watching movies."
Cons: "The crew asking for a tip when asked a question- I think that is rude"
Pros: "Air NZ flight very pleasant. Staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Meals quite good and wine much appreciated."
Cons: "Seats on our return trip much less comfortable than when we flew to NZ."
Pros: "Hot coffee"
Cons: "Brisk, cold air blew on us all night. Repeatedly asked if the crew could turn up the heat. Put on sweater, light jacket and muffler."
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "I love Air NZ, near new 777, spacious, noise wasn't bad, excellent staff. Decent food choices for dinner, breakfast was merely OK. Infotainment was top notch on the new Boeing, but lots of unique Air NZ content too. All my 4 domestic flights on A320s the previous week with Air NZ were top notch too."
Cons: "No way to pay to get in to the lounge for a day pass if you dont have airline status. I got accustomed to having it traveling with a coworker with access, but flying solo, in Auckland, no status, no access, would have gladly paid for the privilege."
Pros: "Your flight attendants provide first-class service even in economy."
Cons: "Bathrooms could have been cleaner"
Cons: "Two delays after boarding extended the 13 hour flight to 14.5 hours. That is excruciating in a seat."
Pros: "Excellent crew service. Food pretty good also"
Pros: "The crew, entertainment"
Cons: "The padding on the seats could be a bit more comfortable in economy, especially on 10 to 16 hour flights."
Pros: "ON time!! As comfortable a long haul can be."
Pros: "We flew to Auckland 2 weeks ago and the food was poor, there was no waiting area to sit down-locked until 15" before boarding; seats not great, etc. But our return flight was superb. Very comfortable seats, clean and stocked bathrooms, very tasty food, great movie selection, great drink selection, great crew. Thank you NZAir."
Cons: "If you use you own earphones, the volume of the pilot announcements comes through very loud. The earphones provided by air nz are much better, so will always opt to use thiers."
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown with"
Pros: "on time, plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Economy on Air New Zealand is better than the USA carriers, but still nothing to write home about."
Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "plane was late. not your fault"
Cons: "Wearing a face vizor on top of the face mask is silly"
Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."
Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Internet bad"
Pros: "boarding process was efficent"
Cons: "delayed takeoff, delays on tarmac after landing/getting to gate, overly heated plane, hot food was served cold"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"
Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "The Crew has been excellent"
Cons: "When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time"
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Cons: "My volume did not work well on the entertainment system."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"
Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
Pros: "Leaving that god forsaken airport after hours of waiting in lines."
Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."
Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
Cons: "Seats on this flight are awful, wonder why they have these seats for long haul flights, not yet all comfortable to sleep on these , I got back pain by the time I got out of the plane."
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Cons: "price and comfort"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were great."
Cons: "We sat in front of a row of children who kicked the back of my seat for 13 hrs straight. We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."
Cons: "Time of flight"
Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."
Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"
Cons: "The cabin sound proofing can be improved. Especially the clicity clack from passengers eating. The pre boarding space was very limited."
Cons: "They changed my seats twice and it was near the bathrooms and I hated it. They refuse to give me a better place when I requested. I didn't choose the seats they put me in and the crews couldn't handle the other passengers attitued and actions. I asked for a below but they didn't bring it to me."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Could have preferred more snacks or fruits which we could pick up while flying."
Cons: "I had chicken three time on the flight. To spicy for my tastes. Even scrambled eggs had a hot sauce on them."
Pros: "Same as my above review."
Cons: "Same as my above review."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Fligjt om time. Smooth landimg Friendly environment."

Cons: "No facility for baby"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Not sure you can change anything but it seems as if we had an inordinate amount of crying kids. On a 14 hour flifht, that was hard"
Pros: "I had plenty of space"

Pros: "The movie selections, and really nice lighting on board."
Pros: "Attentitive staff, leg room, food, entertainment - all great"
Cons: "Still wish I could buy better wine during the flight from Economy. Would pay $100 a bottle for great wine. The wine in coach is undrinkable."

Cons: "I couldn't pick my own seat"
Cons: "got non-vegetarian food in spite of choosing veg"
Pros: "Great space in economy! Great entertainment selection! Great food!"
Cons: "I couldn't hook up my personal earbuds"
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Pros: "i like the food."
Pros: "The flight from Dubai to NYC was great"
Pros: "This was our first trip to Europe using Emirates airline. It was perfect. Low price, excallent meals & service aboard. All staff very professional & helpful. Check in at airports were a breeze. Will definitely use Emirates again & recommend to family & friends."
Pros: "الشكر للاماراتيه على مجهوداتها الكبيره"
Cons: "الطيران الاماراتي ممتاز جدا والخدمات ممتازه جدا جدا تحتاج شي بسيط وهو تقوية الواي فاي فقط طيران جميل جدا"
Cons: "The plane was very messy and not well kept throughout the flight. The fight attendants expressed levels of frustration with passengers as if we were bothering them. Me and the the passenger next to me lost picture during a movie that were watching and had to have our monitors reset."
Pros: "The seat and the flight were very good."
Pros: "Emirates Airline first wowed me because it was a double decker. Even as an economy class customer, I felt like I was treated like first class. They had so many entertainment options from movies to games and their food was very delicious! My flight was about 8 hours and it definitely didnt seem that long."
Cons: "I dont have any complaints. My friend and I repeatedly told each other that this flight was one of if not the best flight we've took by far."
Pros: "I like that Jet blue offers movies on the flight and that they accepted Emirates international baggage rate without any questions. That was very important."
Cons: "I can't think of anything negative."
Cons: "Terrible flight Terrible food Terrible announcements Religious versus from koran Added 500 dollars tax to our fee"
Pros: "Seats recline twice as far as usual, lots of room, great service and 3 meals."
Pros: "The food and the friendship of the staff"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Emirates was the referrer only. The flight was a Qantas flight hence same as any other Qantas flight. The fish dinner choice was over cooked."
Cons: "I like the luggage allowance-- more realistic than other airlines. The attendants were attentive but perhaps a little overdone on the fake smiles except for the main attendant who had the stressed/more straight-faced look for some strange reason. i probably should have been more tuned into the mechanical visual entertainment on board instead. Got to watch two movies which was great!"
Pros: "We flew on time"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "There was nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Service is nice also food"
Pros: "Liked everything."

Pros: "SEATS very comfortable. Timings very accurate other than the weather delay. Staff very courteous. Food is great. Aircraft is equipped with every possible thing"
Cons: "Internet didn't work at all"
Pros: "There should be a limit on drinks. I sat next to a raging alcoholic who (thankfully) liked me, but became more beligerrent with each bottle of wine and can of beer. By the botton of 1 beer and minibottle # 6 she was literally shouting every curse word in the book (though she had a clear fondess for the "f word"), hugging me on a 5 minute basis, and "fake threatening" to punch at least 3 other surrounding passengers in the face for asking her to quiet down. None of the crew asked her to be quiet despite passenger complaints to emirates staff. In fact, they brought her another beer and some red wine following said complaints! After 3 hours I coaxed her into quietly watching a movie. If emirates had cut her off at drink 4 then I could have spent more of my time relaxing and enjoying the amenities I anticipated on that flight. Instead, I spent nearly the entire flight managing a drunk passenger for the betterment of all passengers within earshot."
Pros: "Everything was the absolute best of any flight I have ever been on in 40 years."
Cons: "There were a number of people carrying H1N1 and coughing violently. I have since contracted H1N1, I had a fever of 105, and I have had to miss over a week of work. Another person that I kept in touch with from the flight has also missed work and is also bed ridden. It might be worthwhile investment to start asking sick passengers to wear masks. I am not sure how you could gain compliance, but it would be a good idea."

Cons: "Bumping plus the conditions of the bathroom"
Pros: "Crew service and comfort of the seats"
Cons: "Customer service at the ticketing counter was very poor. Had a terrible experience even with being a sky reawards member. My self and my wife were treated horribly."

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: "The crew was exceptional"
Pros: "The crew was kind. The Meal was great. All good."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accomodating."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane was extremely cold, even wit h the blanket on I was literary shivering. Other people felt the same, the person next to me kept on her a heavy winter coat with a hood all the time. Seats were extremely tight."
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."
Cons: "Just about everything."
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: "I liked the airbus used to fly from and to the USA. On a 15 hour flight comfort is key, and they did their best. The have build little foot pedals to rest your feet on. Meals also came often, and the food was on the better end of airplane food. Crew was also very friendly!"
Cons: "The crew only came around with water every 3 hours or so. This is unacceptable on a long flight."
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: "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."
