2 hour connection time in Seoul to make plane to Bangkok. Giant security lineup. Lots of worry over making flight reduced joy of flying via KE/Incheon. This was a repeat of my flight in Nov 2022, so apparently is the new normal for KE. Flight was boarding after I was forced to jog what seemed to be 2 miles from security to my departure gate. Please fix this. I still cannot understand that if you have already been screened in Canada for dangerous items, and there is no opportunity to obtain any between one plane and the next, why you should be screened AGAIN.
Pros: "There were movies."
Cons: "too late giving out ear phones, and too many interruptions on the loud speaker....way too long explaining things everyone knows, like how to buckle your seat belt....give me a break."

Pros: "This was a Delta codeshare on a Korean Airlines plane. The seats in business class were very comfortable and it was easy to stretch out and sleep."

Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Was seated near some noisy distractions i.e. crying baby."
Pros: "Very hard working, responsive and caring crew. Kept the washrooms clean throughout the flight. Pretty good space between rows considering economy class. Lots of little touches like slippers and toothbrush."

Pros: "I very much enjoyed the flight. The crew went out of their to make you feel comfortable. The food was delicious and more than enough to make you full. I was very impressed with the room between seats. I will definitely fly with this airlines again"
Airport lounge for business class is too crowded and not comfortable. Poor foods and facilities. Boarding was delayed. A lot of coughing people in the flight even in the business class, which indicated poor screening and health risks.
I was very impressed with this airline. The flight was comfortable the plane was clean and the attendants were very nice. The zipper on my suitcase broke after I checked it. The airline wrapped it in plastic wrap, so it wouldn’t continue to fall apart. Every item I had in the suitcase was there when I got to Los Angeles. That is above and beyond!
Pros: "The service was outstanding! All of the flight attendants were amazing!"
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "The willingness to provide a better quality service by the entire cabin crew and improved food quality."
Cons: "Its sad to see that only the female flight attendants look after the restrooms, no male attendants were seen doing it on both flights. Disappointing in this day and age this still exists."
Pros: "Three of us were sitting separately. Airline is able to accommodate us so that we get to sit together in a section where there is extra leg room."
Cons: "A comfort kit on a ultra long haul flight goes a long way"
Cons: "Poor customer service and lack of care for loyal passengers"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Early arrival. Comfortable seat."
Cons: "I had to ask 3 times for an arrival card from the crew. Bread was dry. There should have been a breakfast served prior to landing, but no food service after 1 a.m. though flight arrived at 7:40 a.m. Timing of meals was not convenient for me at all. They wake you up at 1 a.m. for your main dinner. I would have preferred to sleep until 5 a.m. then have a good breakfast. The amenity kit in Business Class was substandard when compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"
Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."
Cons: "Complete overhaul of all your crews and workers in different airports except the airport workers in America. They were nice and cautious. My overall experience was awful"
Cons: "Not taking the blankets and headphones away 30-40 minutes before the flight landed"
Pros: "Everything from take off to service to landing. Was superb, real proffessionals."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Fast boarding and unboarding."
Cons: "Crew weren’t very nice. Was hard to get anything to drink! After lunch waited for an hour for crew to collect trays!!!! Soda finished after first half of the flight. Crew collected headphones and blankets 45 minutes before landing!!!"
Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."
Changement heure de vol et je dois attendre 9h à Aeroport de DOHA.. C'est inadmissible.. je dois réfléchir avec Qatar la prochaine réservation
I planned to fly Qatar airways because I have flown them in the past and viewed the airline as a premium service provided. They still price this way but I found the experience to be subpar in several ways. 1 - check in - the line for check in was the longest I have ever had to stand it. Qatar airways does not have enough check in desks at the airport for the size of the flights they operate. 2- Carry on policy - there was little to no notification of changes to their carry on policy. Backpacks are considered a carry on rather than a personal item so if you have a backpack or larger handbag plus a roller size carry on, you were forced to check an extra bag or pay an additional carry on fee. This is not standard practice on other airlines and frustrating given that this was an international flight. On flight experience was good, generally comfortable seats, friendly staff and good meal service.
Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."
Pros: "Gate agent gave us extra legroom after our trip to Australia in the crying baby section. No one's fault, but a difficult 14 hour flight. Thank you again for your kindness."
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals."
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and welcoming and warm."
Cons: "The toilets was not clean and the boarding delayed without any explanation"
Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"
Pros: "The supervisor has a good customer care and all the crew are so wonderful. I was so pleased. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and extremely attentive! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I thought everything went very smoothly!"
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: "Comfort flight with good entertainment, food and service."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to assume travellers do not know Korean."
Cons: "Only fish and rice were available for the breakfast meal. The seats were too compact for such a long flight. more leg room would be nice."
Pros: "The seats in business class were very good and the staff was also very good."
Cons: "I've flown to Korea many times and this was the most turbulence I've ever had. The choice of moves wasn't good."
Pros: "The pilot from Korea to Manila was terrible. He maneuvered the plane so abruptly that me and my daughter threw up which we normally don't. And the landing was bad too"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "A wonderful airlines, IMHO. I cannot give any complaints about it. The airline crew was really helpful. I cannot rate the meals because I only had drinks on but legs of flights."
Cons: "Movie selection needs to get better and maybe you should add one more snack because for a 12 hours flight it wasn't enough. I was hungry at the end."
Cons: "I don't like the first come first serve boarding system its chaos out there"
Pros: "They served grewl twice I thought I was getting grewl with road kill to eat"
Cons: "The food and seemed like one of the lady's working there did not like her job"
