A spotlessly clean and modern 767 aircraft. Legroom was ample even for a tall guy like me! Service was very good however forget the food it was pretty dreadful I am afraid. Buy a sandwich and take it with you! The movies were excellent and plenty to choose from. I connected with an Air France flight to my final destination...

For a small airline, I am pleased with its services and operation. Cabin crews are friendly and attentive. Announcement on board is fine. Food is so-so.

Having never flown with this airline before I was a bit nervous but there was no need. The seats were very comfortable and the meal was one of the best economy class meals I have had in a long time. The staff were incredibly friendly without being overbearing.

I travel frequently on MIAT between Ulaanbaatar and Hong Kong as there are three flights each week. Flights usually depart on time, and are clean and comfortable. Flight attendants are professional and courteous but the food is only one step up from being inedible. The in-flight movie is usually some ancient American re-run that passengers are almost guaranteed to have...

Its not that bad, the staff were fine, not like the bad experience I had with rude staff with the Royal Jordanian airline, BUT, the flight was delayed from Berlin to Mongolia, so I found myself waiting at Berlin tegel for an extra 5 hours.

A small airline with potential to grow and supported by a modern approach. Flown to ICN on a 738 and 767 and as the rest of the fleet, planes are relatively new. Good legroom and honest in flight service. Staff is attentive while ground service could definitely be better and friendlier at check-in. Timeliness is excellent. While the overall experience...
