Cons: "Seats could always be more comfortable."

Pros: "The flight was shared with Delta airlines on a Delta plane, terrible arrangements. Small seats, poor service, poor entertainment, very bad experience."

Pros: "The employees were soooo nice and friendly"
Cons: "Wheelchair service"

Pros: "Excellent service and food!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Food was very good. Blankets anb pillows too"
Cons: "Poor choices of musict"

Cons: "flew from seattle on delta. i paid for korean air but delta put me on delta going from boston to seoul. very disappointed with the experience going to seoul."

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "It was great! The staff was very friendly and attentive!!"

Cons: "Serve little drinks like water, juices, soft drinks. The plastic cup is small and yet it is half filled. A can every meal would be nice."

Pros: "Excellent service and delicious food and clean."
Cons: "No wifi on board. Not many movies."

Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."

Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The food was a little odd but that might just have been Korean food."

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"

Pros: "Disclaimer: we flew business class. Regardless, our check-in was seamless, Incheon is a beautiful and easy airport, all the flight crew were responsive and pleasant. We flew China Eastern and dealt with Shanghai airport on our flight out and I would avoid doing that again at great cost!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Superb courtesy and attention."

Pros: "Korean Air staff was very nice and helped me as a disabled passenger."
Cons: "Was on a 777 both legs and they have very little padding in the seats which makes for a sore butt."

Pros: "great staff... treat you like a king"

Cons: "Very tight seating"

Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"

Pros: "great flight attendants"
Cons: "Clean, great services, and good food"

Pros: "Korean Air hosted us on four separate flights to SE Asia, a trip from which we have just returned. Of all of the airlines that we have used over the decades, Korean Air rates at the very top. We have no complaints, only a sense of what a first-class operation it was for us."

Pros: "Good time management"

Pros: "Flight that was not sold out!"
Cons: "Delayed takeoff again"

Pros: "The service and food is good"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Korean Air's policy is to have the air temperature set at 24 Celsius. Who does that? Even in our homes, nobody has their temperature set so high, even in the cold weather months. It is ridiculous!!"

Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."

Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."

Pros: "everything are okey"

Pros: "Great service always"

Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. 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"

Pros: "Is Singapore Airlines food quality slipping? First time I’ve been really unenthusiastic about it..."

Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "Cramp set space. Lack of movie choices, not all had closed caption."

Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."

Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."

Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"

Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."

Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. 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."

Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."

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."

Cons: "The Qatar stuff at Nairobi airport was very rude when I tried to ask for their help. She was extremely inpatient and showed us angry face. Totally disappointed and not expected from an airline claimed to be one of the best."

Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."

Pros: "No flight No refund"

Pros: "Wonderful Experience with Qatar airways, as always."

Pros: "One of the best flights in the past 5 years! 5 gold star service!"
Cons: "Wonderful friendly and helpful crew and check in staff. Excellent food and service. On time departure and arrival. Help with bags during the check in process."

Cons: "all my flights were delayed"

Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. 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: "I have never had such an easy long distance flight. Hope to fly with Qatar again!"

Pros: "The business class was okay and food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment choice not as vast as Emirates that I always experienced"

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very cushion for your bottom. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."

Pros: "about average"

Pros: "Somehow"

Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."

Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."

Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"

Cons: "Nothing i"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was old and tatty I booked a window seat to actually get the window seat with no window. I had just come off another Emirates flight but this was old tatty plane, the seating squashed. The plane was delayed on the runway for around 40 mins but no announcement made, the stewards were unresponsive when people pressed the buzzer."

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Pros: "The in flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat I have 41A is quite awkward, especially when 41B was a plus size person. The slanting profile of the wall also made it quite claustrophobic. But overall endurance."

Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask."
Cons: "I didn't realise my kid wouldn't get her own meal and I ran out of food if prepared by the last flight as we were travelling 38 hours in total. Snacks were available on request but it was just crisps so I gave her most of my meals."

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: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"

Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"

Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."

Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"

Pros: "Didn’t get this flight as we were so delayed."

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."

Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."

Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"
Cons: "Some of the food wasn't as tasty but it's airplane food"

Pros: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Shaking air over India for multiple hours which wasn't too pleasant but not the fault of the airline"

Pros: "The boarding was good, I needed a wheelchair as I had a heel problem , this service was very well done, the staff were helpful and obliging on the flight"
Cons: "The food was disgusting, I chose to have gluten free, the breakfast was the worse food I have ever eaten, the eggs were like rubber to eat, the fish was the same and the chips were grey and soggy with saturated stale oil, the bread roll was stale, as a result I didn't eat the breakfast and the main meal wasn't much better, I feel if the food was much more simple , fresh , and the fruit ripe instead of green , the meal would have been more appealing ."

Pros: "Awesome flight...got a business class ticket and I loved each moment during the journey"
Cons: "Indian food was not that tasty and quality needs to improve"

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."

Cons: "late take off and even on arrival took 20 minute halted near runway as there was no space for disembark ."

Pros: "The spacious seats and the in-flight service"

Pros: "The extra seating space - made the long journey A bit more bearable and relaxing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."

Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"

Pros: "Like everything"

Pros: "Staff are polite and accomodating. They let passengers upgraded from economy to business for free."

Pros: "Had a whole row to myself"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great"

Pros: "Good food. Very clean bathrooms. Great service"

Pros: "The service and the entertainment options."
Cons: "Although I understand that the crew has to take precautions but it was strange to see the stewardesses keep their masks and gloves on during the whole flight."

Pros: "To be honest I liked everything from the speed of boarding to food and entertainment systems. Seats were roomy too."

Pros: "Crew was amazing, best airline i have ever flown hands down. Best food, best service best everything."
Cons: "An airplane that has aisles every two rows so you never have to ask people to get up to go use the bathroom."

Pros: "seat food and cabin crew"

Pros: "Very friendly and easy to talk to"
Cons: "The airplane was very warm"

Pros: "Check in staff were good. We departed on time."
Cons: "Better if they could provide maybe nuts I flight but if not, it's still all good for an hour flight.."

Pros: "lots of legroom. courteous staff. bathroom is clean"
Cons: "everything is excellent"

Pros: "Great services. Seats are good."
Cons: "The queue to board was a little trying."

Pros: "Best flight I’ve ever been on!"
Cons: "It had just snowed 20” in Seattle, so we had a short delay."

Pros: "on-plane flight operation is very good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example they sent me an email before the departure date in Korean only."

Cons: "The plane was delayed about two hours by some excuse which was a connecting aircraft problem. Due to their incompetency I and my pickup person had to be strained at the airport about four hours. It was terrible. Hope it won't get this kind of delay when I go back to ICN. If that happens, I'll miss a flight back home to U S."

Pros: "Business class seats are a lot more comfortable than earlier versions."

Pros: "The check in staff, boarding staff and flight attendants were very kind and accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "We departed both legs of the flight - from Manila to Seoul, and Seoul to LA - about an hour late. That’s inexcusable! The food on both flights was adequate but certainly not tasty or delicious."

Pros: "The attendants were very nice and the food and drinks service was good (however, I believe I got sick from the food since I got food poisoning about 2-3 hours after landing from our 13 hour flight)."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable and the flight out did not have a footrest so my feet were dangling and got numb at times. Our return flight had a footrest and that felt much better."

Pros: "The Food was great! Asiana Airlines Economy Seats have more leg room than most airlines. Service was Excellent."
Cons: "We had just purchased coffee and the boarding agent told us that their policy was that we were not permitted to take hot coffee onto the aircraft. My guess is it had to do with safety. I've never been told this on any of the hundreds of flight i've been on traveling the world. It must be a South Korea thing."

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: "Great food!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Not much. Plane was almost on time."
Cons: "Disgusting food, old plane with terrible seatback screens as well as movie selection."

Pros: "over all flight is great.landed safely"
Cons: "nothing much.just the food and entertainment not much option."

Pros: "It was nice to know that JetBlue and Asiana are connected. I did not need to claim and check my suitcase for the connecting flights anymore. The entertainment device was also nice."
Cons: "I think JFK rather than Asiana was the issue. It was quite cold inside the boarding area, and the waiting area happened to be unpleasant because of a lack of seats and the noise. The announcements before boarding happened to be annoying. Lavatory happened to become quite messy at the end of the flight."

Cons: "The entertainment is much under expected"

Cons: "They left my bags in Korea I had no change of clothes!! Arrived in the morning I was told my bags would show up later on at midnight!! So I missed my flight to an other island totally screwed my vacation!!!"

Pros: "Everything! Service awesome"

Pros: "The crew are the best and attention is also excellent"
Cons: "The seating is hard and is hard on your back, legs and neck. Movie selection is very little and not very good. The bathrooms should be periodically cleaned down and sanitized with a light solution to be and feel clean."

Pros: "Staff is friendly smiles and goes the extra step to insure comfort"
Cons: "You pay extra for a bulkhead and they place a bassinet in your personal space. Seats lack cushion on A380"

Cons: "I could not make the flight. Medical problems."

Pros: "Cleanliness, efficiency."
Cons: "Seat cushioning could be better for the long haul legs."

Pros: "We noticed we were seated together just before and they accommodated us at check-in and got us seats together. The food was good. They gave us nice little amenities (ear plugs, slippers, eye cover) and the food was good."

Pros: "They made sure everyone was happy with all service."

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: "crew was very professional and pleasant. Plane was in excellent condition comfortable and clean"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "No tv, no complimentary water no food no nothing The poorest experience ever"
Cons: "This company shouldn't be legally running It's a gigantic scam Didn't even know such a airline even existed"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight attendant service were attentive unlike US counterparts."
Cons: "Air was centrally controlled and no individual seat air nozzle. So when you are hot there is no directional air nozzle. There's no power source. On the 777 plane. Movies were Korean."

Pros: "I didn't expect there to be a meal & in-flight movies on what I considered to be a relatively short flight. It was a nice treat!"

Cons: "More options for tv shows such more episodes for korean tv shows like running man. Etc."

Pros: "the service was amazing and the stewardesses so very attentive and polite / this was perhaps the airline with the best service i have ever had in economy class // i also like experiencing the very authenic korean food that was a choice at each meal //"
Cons: "the films and tv shows were a bit limited in selection but varied enough and were of good enough quality that i found myself kept entertained during the long flight /"

Pros: "I love the tv's and the cleanliness"
Cons: "I slept the whole time at the window seat so I wasn't distirbed so I didn't have any hiccups! Perfect flight"

Pros: "Great food Friendly staff Very affordable decent entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped and a little uncomfortable. Smaller person 5' 3" 145 lbs. Would probably be uncomfortable for people of larger girth. Leg room was great!"

Pros: "Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Seats on the small side."

Pros: "Nice enough crew."
Cons: "Terrible food. It is a waste. Better not to have it at all or just give some good snacks. Aircraft seemed unclean and old."

Pros: "Good food and entertainment. Crew was attentive and kind. Checkin was a breeze. Icheon airport is modern, comfortable and traveler focused."
Cons: "Economy class seats were hard to sleep in."

Cons: "No vegetarian option for meals like most other flights have these days. On the return flight I even tried to book one online and could not find where/how to do it. I also asked upon check in and was told it takes 2 days at least to request a veggie meal. This is really pathetic considering I'm flying from a part of the world that has a high Buddhist population."

Pros: "Quick boarding, on time, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "After 20 days of returning..movies option hadn't chnged."

Pros: "I actually didn't even feel the plane take off. Everything just worked. Seamless flight everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing perfect flight"

Cons: "Asiana Airline allowed a drunken passenger sit next to me. Everyone can smell and knew that he is drunken. The 1st thing he did after sitting was drinking alcohol from his pocket. Yes, one of the staff came to him and got the drink from him. But, he talked me for about 4hours nonstop and made me uncomfortable at all. Other passengers around me saw him because he talked too loud. I expected that they would offer me another sit and left him alone. During 10 hrs flight, I had 2 Tylenol capsules because of the smell of the alcohol from him. It was REALLY hard time for me to sit next to him during 10 hrs. DO NOT ALLOW A DRUNKEN PERSON TO GET ON A PLAIN FOR OTHERS."

Pros: "Seating on that Airbus was very comfortable with a lot of leg room and we sat in economy class. Food also was excellent."

Pros: "Flying with a partner, the two seater in economy was comfortable, good leg space, reasonable food , good service."
