check-in in Manila it takes 2hrs very long line
Korean Airlines has excellent service as usual. Will definitely fly with them next time.
The flight experience met my expectation of Korean Air. Keep up the good work.
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and our seats in Prestige class were very comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment options were meager at best."

Cons: "Need more movie options for a 14 hour flight"
Pros: "The crew, as always, was super professional, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The plane was neat and clean, I was pleasantly surprised with personal items like tooth paste, tooth brush, and slippers. And I was thrilled that you served wine with food as well. That goes a long way!"
Cons: "I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!"
Pros: "Very nice trip"
Cons: "Clean the restroom more often"
Pros: "That the bathrooms are kept clean."
Cons: "Lack of beverage service. For an 11.5 hour flight they could have come around more often to offer pop or alcoholic beverages."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive, I just thought it was weird that they aren’t allowed to take pictures? That was the only strange thing. Overall one of the best experiences with an airline compared to most. Probably because of the unlimited tasty beverages ;)"
Cons: "Strange that flight attendants can’t take pictures like stated above. And the video games are horribly outdated!"

Pros: "Got the seats we wanted. If you are travelling with an infant this is top priority and they delivered"
Cons: "Flight delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Always slippers and good seats. Lunch was good. Entertainment was just ok but good classical music selection."
Cons: "The food used to be something I looked forward to, but this time the beef and rice for dinner (because chicken was already gone) was so salty and awful I had to ask to change for fish, which was flavorless. 30 minute delay on unloading luggage made the end of a long flight rough."
Pros: "The flight was smooth though there's a bit delay from Seoul because of the snow."

Pros: "Great food and service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Although I had already checked in on line and had a boarding pass, I stood in line for ninety minutes at Incheon just to self-drop a bag. That's just not acceptable. I'd avoid Incheon and Korea Air for future flights for this reason."
Pros: "The meals were really good for plane food, the flight attendants came around often offering water or juice, and really competitive price for tickets."
Cons: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Polite and courteous crew. Good movies on the flight back."
Cons: "I think the announcements were too long and took up about the first 15 minutes of the flight...so kept turning your movie off. Should be a way to override that from your seat."
Pros: "Fast I like it this way.."
Cons: "Time keep changing is what I don't like."
Pros: "- Great Service by inflight crew. - Very good Indian veg meal options i.e. Hindu Veg Meal and Asian Veg Meal. I would suggest the non veg folks to try these next time."
Pros: "I liked their positive & happy attitudes as well as their work ethic."
Cons: "Perhaps there could have been a larger & wider selection of movies. I would have liked to have had a hard copy menu so that I could make a more informed choice with my meals."
Pros: "I think the professionalism and care of the crew is outstanding. I am always pleased by the conduct of the crew with the passengers. It is the main reason that I always fly Korean Air."

Pros: "Food Comfort in seatting"
Pros: "Flight was great. The service and kindness of flight attendants was the best I ever had."

Sandwich could be better :)
Liked the boarding process. Seats and leg-room adequate.
Long flight, middle seat, fidgety neighbor,,, what can I say?
Separate lanes for different groups in gate b2 would have been nice. Instead it was a bad mad rush to the front of the queue.
Only 2 meals on a 16 hrs flight and they had few option for food and drink. Qty was not sufficient
Please update your meals plan for hindu nv. Also, I wish I had a foot rest for my feet. Great seat spacing/leg room.
Airplane flight is good,nice and clean
Everything is excellent eventhough our flight was cancelled. They provide us accomodation in the hotel and food. I understand why the flight was cancelled and I’m glad they did cause it’s for our own safety.

Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. Upgrade options at the transfer desk not very clear and the staff present there not courteous"
Pros: "We love Singapore Airlines, seriously it's not hard, you just have staff that care, clean comfortable air craft, good inflight entertainment. Are you listening American and British Airways?"
Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"
Cons: "In spite of ordering vegetarian food, was offered a non-vegetarian option and was told that is Asian vegetarian. Food quality was bad too."

Pros: "Classy cabin staff"
Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Pros: "Crew was overall friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system very old and doesn't work properly, wake you up in the middle of the night for breakfast, service not efficient as half of the plane orders Indian food and get served first"

Cons: "Old aircraft with tired looking seats."
Pros: "crews are energetic and warm welcoming passengers."
Cons: "aircon temperature is too hot for seat 50H area."
Dirty plane. Urine on floor of lavatories, food was not cleaned from previous leg of flight prior to boarding, lavatories only cleaned once inflight. Boarded by group number, but did not inform passengers in terminal. So standing in line for ~40min.
Poor food quality and quantity . Old flights less comfort. Boarding flights in Dubai and India are very poorly unorganized. Veg meals are limited in flight
Fine Emirates service, everything you'd expect. Good food and drink, good service, good entertainment. Not the worst seats, for economy class. Only real problem was the lack of mask enforcement. Probably about 5% of passengers didn't bother, and the crew didn't do anything to ask them.
Tjue legt me strandes on Iraq and the Manager would not speak to me and tell me if I was rebooked or what, I had my PCR test, was four hours early and complied with everything they asked. I am sickened how they treated customers, I needed to spend $2300 to get back to the US.
Cons: "more organized boarding"
Pros: "The Seat is good."
Cons: "The check in counter welcoming should be better in Barcelona"
Pros: "I am a very tall man, 205cm, and I am always worried when I travel that I would not get the first raw or emergency seat. But Emirates always pays attention to my problem. And the economy class seats on Emirates have more leg rooms than on other airlines."

Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."

Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"
Pros: "Crew onboard - do great on a very busy route Punctuality- on time departure & arrivals"
Cons: "- older planes - no amenities like pillows, blankets , kits - food is geared towards spicy, with no options for anyone who prefers a lighter continental option. - touchscreen did not work. Constantly having to tap hard is probably annoying to the person in front, also Worry that the TV heating up is probably not great for the head resting on the seat"
Pros: "Crew and the upgraded entertainment system. Especially, the nee touch screen and 3.5 mm support in the headphone jack."
Cons: "Hard to hear the announcements."
Pros: "The new plane is nice, reasonably comfortable in economy with clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Frankly can't remember much about this leg of the trip because the next 14 hour leg was so overwhelmingly bad thanks to the highly disruptive fellow passengers and the lack of control from the flight crew."
Cons: "They changed our seats to 46F 58F and 88B. We already get boarding pass for connecting flight but they did changed them because of flight delayed from Bangkok. It was unfair. They should hold reserved seats for us since they knew that the first flight would arrive on time."
Pros: "General performance is good. Maintain the timing of arrival also the departure in Dubai as well as in the Boston .crew are good."

Cons: "No internet Food was not tasty"
Pros: "Nothing much to complain about"
Cons: "Shuttters always closed"
Pros: "My wife and I were given a free Upgrade to Business Class on the first leg of our journey to Dubai. The airline follows a system whereby it upgrades, higher paying economy class passengers, if the flight is overbooked in the economy class. I love to travel Emirates because of top quality service by their ground staff and in flight crew.."
Cons: "The Emirates business lounge in Dubai is terrible, overcrowded, too big, food passable, very little service."
Pros: "Food and service are excellent"
Pros: "1. Check-in counter staff is nice 2. Entertainment systems are nice."
Cons: "1. Issue with crew, one of crew member forgot to serve food and after reminding they did not have vegetarian option hence have to stay without food, disappointed with kind of service even after booking ticket with competitive price and providing meal choice in advance. Somehow they managed a vegetarian meal but didn't provide any cutlery to eat which is highly unacceptable. Apologies don't serve any purpose if the passenger remains hungry just because of ignorant staff. 2. About entertainment option, less new bollywood movie choices"
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."

Pros: "Everything was good . Yhe only problem is the small portions of food."
Cons: "Captain concern about security."
Pros: "This flight left nearly an hour late, which at 1 AM really hurts. The crew were ok, but the flight seemed understaffed, and our service in premium economy was pretty ordinary."

Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."

What's the reason he think it is more concienent to me. I dont understand his thought. I feel disappointed with the services. The crew are no professional. Please provide more training to these people"

Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"
Pros: "not a full flight so obviously more comfortable"
Cons: "did not like having to deplane then reboard"
Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"
Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"
Pros: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Made it easy to sleep even in a middle seat."
Cons: "We had to wait outside the boarding area until right before boarding. Also they did not allow me to reserve a seat when booking."
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."
Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"
Cons: "Service.. Got ignored when asked for coffee. Got ignored when food choice came around. Lady sitting beside me also got same service ignored"
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
I had heard that Turkish Airlines was great, but after flying on it from Vancouver to Istanbul, I didn't see what was great about it. It wasn't bad, but definitely not great. Middle of the road...
Only liked crew and food, airplane was old, Entertainment system was ok, but my luggage was delayed for 48 hours and contacting the airlines/help center was difficult with referral to different departments, not much of them speak english and was put on hold multiple time to find someone that speaks english, end result me giving up on them and contacting my Visa insurance.
Pros: "I was smacked in my knee I need surgey on my minsicus for by the person serving the food and never got apologized too. Then later he elbowed me in face and acted like it didn't happen. I liked nothing."
Cons: "Not getting hit twice by the crew serving food and at least an apology."
Cons: "Boarding process should be further protective of priority and business class passengers-boarding experience was somewhat chaotic with economy passengers blocking way for priority boarders"
Pros: "Very old plane, seats not updated and not working properly, food was served once on an 8 hour flight, there was turbulance for over 5 hours consistently, and the pilots did nothing to go around it. As a pilot, i can tell you this can be avoided. Some of the crew were not friendly. Old movie library."
Cons: "New and updated plane, especially business class, more trained crew, seats that work and function normally, better and more food, served a light breakfast on an 8 hr flight. Updated movie library."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"

Pros: "Flew JFK to BOM -business class and back. Very impressed. Excellent service, food and punctuality."

Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"
Pros: "I had only 70 minutes transfer time and had to spend almost all of that time standing in line to go through security after just arriving from another flight!! I ran to the gate and was the last person through before it closed. I asked about my two bags and was told they were accounted for. Hardly believing it but glad to at least have made it I boarded. When I arrived in Zurich, sure enough my bags arrived too! Was very pleasantly surprised!"
Cons: "Though no fault of Turkish Airlines, having to go through security after just getting off one flight was stressful even if it might have been necessary. Almost missed my flight. The security area is not properly designed for accomodating many people at one time and the officials (actually two cleaning personnel) who did not speak anything but Turkish were manning the entrance. Even when I showed them my boarding pass they just rudely shooed me away!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure is chaotic and the boarding crew were rude and yelling at passengers. No organization skills and poor communication as we were delayed over 90 minutes at the boarding gate to add salt to injury"
Cons: "Boarding is poorly done at Lahore. Business class passengers should have a separate line. They should have better announcement system for boarding. Boarding becomes chaos when agents aren’t able to properly board the passengers."
Pros: "The service, food,seats,crew,hot towel, slippers & more."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful!"
Pros: "Smooth flight in general, nice staff"
Cons: "Food used to be better"
Pros: "Crew in both flights were friendly. The service boarding etc was great. Flight was very turbulent."
Cons: "Passenger next to me wanted water constantly. The passenger on left of me constantly wanted wine. One got very little attention while the other treated like royalty. Unfortunately the African passenger who wanted water went thirsty a lot."
Pros: "I did not like anything."
Cons: "Everything. I will never book a flight from Kayak from now on. Kayak just charged us a lot of money and did not do anything for us."

Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."

Cons: "We were not asked or given the option to choose our seats on the plane."
Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers and economy feels like business with the hot towels and good food!"
Cons: "Quite a full flight and no extra accommodation for families."
Pros: "The food! So much food that at one point they were bringing more things and i just looked at them like are u crazy? It was tasty and warm."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Cons: "Lost the bag and will return it . Still discussing with them after five days. Promising to deliver each day but then not doing it. Miserable experience and do not recommend using this airline."

Pros: "Crew service was amazing. 2 meals on the long trip, 1 meal on the short flight. Very satisfied"
Pros: "Aircraft good, crew members respectful, food was good."
Cons: "Confusion delayed takeoff by 1 hour or more. Staff at gate had an issue in their system. They let others after me on the flight but said would be missing luggage. I said that is fine. Ten minutes later they said they would not let me board. I spent no less than 4 hours trying to get out of the airport-- waiting for visa and then through customs. Every Turkish airline desk took a long time and I was sent to at least 4 Turkish airlines desks. It is all a mess. So I am one day delayed in my arrival to my destination. This has been so frustrating!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Good entertainment, adequate comfort"
Cons: "Repetitive, intrusive, unsmiling screenings at Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Pros: "Trip was excellent. Plane was new and clean; good good; service very friendly."
Cons: "The delayed boarding and take off."
Pros: "Over all the flight was okay, the food good, boarding was nice, and entertainment was good as well."
Cons: "This flight was for my mother, who is an old woman. On her way back from Belgium to Chicago, she has a layout more than 14 hrs. In this case the Turkish airlines were responsible to offer her a stay in a hotel, however this time they did not offer her any."
Pros: "The flight and crew is always great"
Cons: "Food and not a great movie selection"

Pros: "Flight attendants are good."
Cons: "Airport, older airplanes, food."
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "Food and service very good"
Pros: "Well, let's see, I missed my flight with THY because of a connecting flight with American Airlines, and instead of helping me, they wanted to charge me $3,000 to catch the next flight out. They said it didn't matter who's fault it was. So my entire trip got cancelled. So I can't rate the flight, but unless you can guarantee you won't miss the flight, I would not recommend taking the risk of losing all your money and ruining your trip."
Pros: "Everything from check-in to coming back home was great. The most friendly crew, clean cabin and lavatories. The food was excellent and plenty. The best part was that I could check in 2 luggages per person in addition to the carry-on!!! Yes 2 pieces! Can't forget the little pouch they give you with slippers, socks, tooth brush kit, ear plugs, and the sleep mask for your eyes. By industry standard, the head phones are better than most other. You feel like a first class traveller in economy when you compare to a similar booking with other european airlines."
Cons: "Because of the fact that they are a part of star alliance I thought that we would be stacked like economy cargo as done with lufthansa, swiss, sas, austrian etc., but turkish airlines completely lives up to and is the star in that alliance, something their partners can learn from."
Cons: "Crew not very friendly"
Cons: "Food has room to improve."
