I was able to get an exit row, but I still saw how roomy the "normal" seats were. The food was good, but it wasn't the best I've experienced in air. The attendants were very friendly and attentive. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of movie options, compared to other airlines I've flown. Still, it was a...

Imagine your most luxurious hotel stay ever. Now take that and imagine that luxury on a flight. The level of service is unsurpassed. I simply cannot wait to fly with them again. Thank you!

Previously I commented the narrowness of their seats and also limited storage area. They still are. But I have now discovered the seats which give you a little more space to put your things away. These are the aisle seats on the window side e.g.8C. There is a small box like (with a lid) at the back of the window...

Very nice attendants - uniform/hair--perfect. Issues with a few things-- hot towel to the second service of food-- wait 30 minutes to get food- No alcohol- strong. At the end of the flight one attendants sole job was to make sure that the toilet paper in the lav was folded in a triangle. Begging of flight water served every 30...

We chose our seats online during ticket purchase and they were changed at the gate. This is not right at all. We were moved to center row seats in the middle, eventhough we had window side seats. I believe they sold our seats as premium seats and just tossed us into undesirable seats. Very poor business practice. Will not fly...

Superb in every way - courteous attentive flight attendant, efficient pilot, a smooth flight with excellent amenities -- very good food (ordered vegetarian special meals), great choices in entertainment (watched a fascinating Korean soap opera with subtitles), easy short layover in Seoul, and arrived rested and happy ih Shanghai.

This was my first time flying Korean air. I have a friend who told me this airline was a five star even in economy class. It was the opposite. Food was terrible. My entertaiment device did not work on both segments of the flight. Sets selection was not a choice

For my first flight to Korea I decided I needed to fly Korean Air. I could only afford Economy and initially was a little nervous about going so far without being able to recline all the way but I had no reason to worry. My flight left at 11:30pm and I settled in to sleep. About 30 min in they...
