Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crews and their messages sounded nice but some parts sounded like it was little too much for normal passengers.; somewhat threatening or too warning ..?"

Cons: "Can't think of anything. All was great."
Pros: "Korean Air has top notch service from crew members. Very kind and accommodating. They will really go out their way to make you feel comfortable. They also serve food on the short flight which not all airlines do between Korea and Japan. Seats are also comfortable; more leg room than other airlines."

Pros: "Flight had to be cancelled because kayak/Korean air allowed us to purchase these tickets aware with the expiration date of Lauren Butz’s passport this would be an issue. Disgusting business practice."
Cons: "See above. Kayak or Korean air should refund us the cost and some for the stress incurred on our honeymoon, the extra night stay in San Francisco and all the challenges incurred with little to no help from Korean Air on finding an APPROPRIATE resolution (they’re best offer was for us to buy two tickets for the same flight pattern 1 day later for an additional $1,500. THey wanted us to pay them more to get us there? After their shady business practices of willingly stealing money for our initial flight purchase for our honeymoon? Atrocious.)"
Pros: "Once we were on board. the service was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 24hrs which is not the fault of Korean airlines however Boarding was so disorgainsed with no information on the process, almost no priority boarding. We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"
Cons: "There wad a7 hour delay in Korea and the staff at the airport were not helpful. I asked them if I was in the right place for my connecting flight and all they said was come back in 1 hour. I came back 1 hour later and asked if I'm still in the right place sand when my flight would be boarding. They again said come back in 1 hour.

Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"

And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."
Pros: "Everything is excellent!"
Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "Old aircraft with tired looking seats."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."

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: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."
Cons: "The flight+all Qater air Way services was canceled but I didn't receive any message or update from kayak. So stressful and bad expiarence."

I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."

Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."

Pros: "So so"
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "food courtesy boarding"
Pros: "Emirates has the best crew. Very professional, providing excellent service."
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline!"
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "The attendants are friendly, helpful and responded to my needs graciously. I also love the uniforms, especially the hats. The food was decent and was offered at appropriate intervals. I like the plane too."
Cons: "I had reserved an aisle seat by phone but at the airport I was assigned a window seat. No problem---the attendants were helpful and a nice man changed seats with me. I had difficulty with the headset, couldn't get it comfortable and had difficulty adjusting the volume. No big problem considering how good the service was in general. I didn't like a 6 hour wait at Kennedy on my flight to Milan which was dreadfully late."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"
Pros: "nice plane , good crew, on time,"
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets way over 6 months in advance for our honey moon and they did not sit us together on our 8 hr flight to milan. I always hear how people get complimentary upgrades in such a situation. Apparently not for us."
Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."
Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"
Pros: "Like everything"
Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."
Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."
Pros: "The A380 is a beautiful aircraft. Smooth and quiet. Great movie choices. Crew friendly and mostly efficient. Great value for money!"
Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"
Pros: "One of the crew members likes to rush passengers which was unnecessary. They need to give people time to get situated. First time I saw a crew member exhibit an impatient behavior. Even when she is serving she has that rush manner. Not good. Unprofessional! I wish I can remember her Korean name. I don’t think she likes her job. The other ladies were courteous except her! ( Seoul to Jfk NY trip)."
Cons: "Food selection was very mediocre . The beef was hard to chew. The scrimp pasta had 3 pieces of tiny shrimp and all pasta. Will not recommended this airline or fly with this aircraft. Should have stayed with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Crew was great, had a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew was very interactive with my 2 year old."
Cons: "I think Chinese people just don’t like Americans."

Pros: "on-plane service is good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example their online flight info system is faulty, they cannot figure out the date the plane arrives! mo kidding."
Pros: "The crew was ok."
Cons: "Luggage pick up was very slow. Random inspection at Incheon is not so random at all. 90% minority."
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: "Food was good, friendly service"
Cons: "Movies were not good, not enough selection"
Pros: "The entertainment had a good selection, although the headphones and connection on the armrest wasn't perfect. Also the food had a pretty good selection."
Cons: "The discomfort of being on such a long flight. Hard to be comfortable. And unable to sleep for any stretch of time."
Pros: "Over all everything was great except for the above complaint"
Cons: "I basically don’t eat rice for breakfast. I food choices could be updated to accommodate those that don’t eat rice as a First meal of the day or Americans passagers. Over all the flight was excellent."
Pros: "Flight attendants doing their best."
Cons: "Your food quality is declining. I have some second thoughts now referring the airlines to friends."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Old style seating arrangement Many young kids in business?"
Pros: "i like how accomodating the crew was"
Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "Always late"

Cons: "Terrible seats, no personal entertainment."
Cons: "Limited choices for the movies."
Pros: "The quality of food."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing, not enough announcements."
Cons: "The food was worst food we had in any flight. I highly suggest try giving to humans first before offering to someone on 11 hrs flights. Its almost like prepared for animals."
Pros: "Food and flight crew"
Cons: "Receiving Travel miles is only concern"
Cons: "Old plane, Boeing 777, LCD screens need updating, otherwise everything was great"
Pros: "My flight: hanoi --->Incheon----> Chicago (Asiana) Chicgao---> GSP Origination flight in Hanoi to Incheon, agent failed to indicate that I had a final connecting flight from Chicago to GSP, SC. Flight from Incheon to Chicago departed nearly an hour after scheduled departure. --- resulted in me missing my next flight. Scrambled to reschedule my next earliest flight out of chicago. --- I advise Asiana ground agent about my situation and agent couldnt do anything for me! No hotel? Or apologize? Was very upset. It was a 14 hour flight and past 10 pm, I was tired. Asiana could have booked a hotel night but they chose not to. Lack of accountability and service! United at least rebooked me for their next morning flight. Charged extra for my carryon"
Cons: "Boarding seemed to have taken longer than usual. Plane departed nearly an hour from scheduled time."
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive"
Cons: "Long ques to board and food choices were not well informed and extremely limited if you don't eat pork"
Pros: "Food o utstanding for economy....a as good as air France Movies selection excellent"
Pros: "Service was as expected."
Cons: "There was a baby in my section crying for 10 hours and nothing at the parents or crew could do would make him stop crying. I couldn't sleep"
Pros: "Food was delish (esp the Korean options), and crew was very courteous. The plane going to our destination had an updated online entertainment system -- touch screen worked w/o too much effort and the control was an easy reach from in front of you but I can't say the same for the flight back which i think is an older plane."
Cons: "I was getting sick and had fever the day i was going to fly back home. I was contemplating moving my flight but wanted to know if I could do it without getting charged (say if I had a doctor's note from the hospital) or at least how much I would have to pay... I didn't get to ask at all because (1) it was hard for me to find the correct customer service to call and (2) when I reached it, I was asked to call again as services were busy. I ended up taking the flight sick because I didn't want to rack up extra charges. Also, I find the seats pressing on to my thighs if my legs are in a relaxed position (meaning not trying to keep my knees together as if I was in a job interview). I've had to put a blanket or pillow between me and the armrests so they wouldn't hurt. Some airplanes have thinner more streamlined armrests and those have made some of my other travels more comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact their website does not offer a variety of choices like vegetarian or vegan or even low calorie or low salt options"
Pros: "Everyone was kind and professional. Everything went very smoothly."
Cons: "Seemed like no air conditioning -- very hot the whole trip. Food was very poor -- glad we ate prior."
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Trying to make everything online and was not being able to make it easily. Confused in infirmations."
Pros: "Great services."
Cons: "Food was not very good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were responsive and polite. The foot rests at the economy seats were a nice bonus. The bathrooms were well stocked and mostly clean. The entertainment was OK. There were mostly action movies which aren't my thing."
Cons: "The check-in line was about an hour long. There were way too few people at the counters for a very large plane. I pre-weighed my bags on scales that weren't being used and moved things around. The really stressful part was my carry on bag. It was overweight and transferred things to my handbag and into my suitcases as much as I could. The only things in my carry on were my laptop and medication. It was still 2 kilos overweight. I appealed to the manager who said I had to check it. Checking a bag with my medication would be dangerous to my health and we know they wouldn't reimburse me for the theft of my laptop. The manager, Yeonju Lee (first name may be spelled incorrectly) was completely inflexible and devoid of compassion as was the check in agent. They said the restriction was due to security measures, which is a lie. I've traveled all over the world with carry on over 20 pounds and there has never been a problem. They said I had to correct the problem in 7 minutes or I would not be allowed on the plane. Ultimately, I almost missed the flight. I had to ask people in the security line if I could go ahead of them. If I can avoid it, I will never fly Asiana again. The seats are hard as rocks which is difficult for a 14 hour flight."
Pros: "It was one of those weeks with delayed flights due to regional inclement weather. I felt they handled the situation really well. The airline managed to give my child and me seats next to each other after helping me rearrange my flight schedule. We were in an A380. It was a packed flight. The crew was efficient, attentive, and calm. Asiana Airline strives to be a service-oriented airline, and it was demonstrated on this flight."
Cons: "Communication is not always clear especially in-flight communication, more likely a language barrier that can be improved. Wondering if a ticker board would be helpful."
Pros: "The staff was nice and accommodating which is a big plus and the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "The flight was super delayed. Don't get me wrong I know things happen and I even know they used that time to make sure the plane was good to go, but it's the principle. I had expected to make it Bangkok at a certain time, but this delay well...delayed me lol. You get the point."
Pros: "The service was very good. The crew and staff were courteous, fast and efficient. We left on time, they didn't lose my luggage, they communicated with the passengers very well. I like the legroom in the aircraft and the overall cleanliness. I will definitely fly Asiana again and recommend it to others."
Pros: "Very kind staff."
Cons: "Apparently being one of the last of getting food and only one type is left, which I was allergic to. Not a huge deal, I had something to eat earlier. Otherwise could have been an issue."
Pros: "first meal was quite good. ca in temp was good"
Cons: "second meal not so good. Film choices not so intersting."
