The flight experience met my expectation of Korean Air. Keep up the good work.
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "This is the best in the air"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the cheerful and helpful crew. And i love that the gate agent gave me a seat up front, near the front of the plane because she knew that i had a short connection and needed to catch my next flight."
Pros: "The service vayama were trying to charge fees way over the normal fees for any adjustments"
Cons: "If they could of tried to be helpful when trying ro change dates"
Pros: "Clean, kind cabin crew & nice meals"
Pros: "Service, entertainment, and seats are all great."
Cons: "Korean airlines could use air nodules for their seats as both flights became very hot towards the end."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Hope I can change seat when I check in even though I choose to enter other skyteam number than sky pass."
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."
Cons: "No, all good"
Pros: "Great customer service on the plane and in person."
Cons: "Very long trip."
Pros: "Overall flight journey is better."
Cons: "The person next to me asked two crew members what is inside in the sandwich as he is a Muslim. But those two gave different answers and confused him. So, he did not have it. Neither did others."
Pros: "Legroom was generous, crew were attentive and polite, although alcohol availability was stingy."
Cons: "Food quality was poor bordering on tasteless, more importantly service of lukewarm egg meals is guaranteed to earn an "Air Typhoid" award, and is inexcusable."
Pros: "Flights are on time, Cabin attendants are nice and friendly , Food was great .My luggage came early . Everything is clean . I only have 1 hour lay over to transfer from my flight from Inchon to Nagoya it’s was fast . I will fly Korean air again in the future . Thanks for the safe flights ."
Cons: "I didn’t like being seated in the middle of two guys in the isles . I arrived 3 hours before my flight I don’t have no choice . Hopefully they would assigned us seating at least not in the middle of two men I feel discomfort ."
Cons: "1. Planes outdated - We were on an old airplane from Seoul which had compact seating, touch screen on tv controls were not functional. We had to help our kids with the program selections. Wished that the 7 hour flights are upgraded to newer ones with touch screen control, just like the 12 hour flights. 2. Food options not available - My son & daughter ended up skipping both meals during the second leg. They did not want to eat hamburger in kids menu, Korean air did not have alternate meal option like pasta or pizza in flight, which was not what I had expected. Cold sandwiches were offere prior to landing in breakfast menu, all of us had to skip it. 3. Turbulence - my son ended up vomiting twice in second leg. Fortunately we carried 2 spare sets of clothes. 4. Checked baggage in Mumbai airport took 1.5 hours to arrive on the baggage claim belt which was just a waste of time. Korean Air staff just blamed airport authorities on the baggage delay and did not inform anxious passengers awaiting for their baggage after the long flight. Korean air was inefficient in every way."
Pros: "Excellent service and food!"
Cons: "transit was bad. Almost late for my flight"
Pros: "The Koreans are masters at whatever they do, super clean, polite and attentive. Always a smile. I'd fly with them anytime."
Cons: "They tend to keep the plane a tad warm and no individual "fresh air" control over head."
Pros: "First Korean dish was good."
Cons: "The pasta was the worst meal ever."
Pros: "My husband, my baby(14 months) and I took the flight from Hanoi to New York which was transferred in Korea. The flight from Hanoi to Korea got delayed so we have to fly with Asian Anna instead. The checking took so long and confusing. We barely made the flight from Hanoi to Korea and ran from different terminals to catch the flight from Korea to New York. We paid extra to select seat to sit to gether but then we found out it was just a joke to get money from Justfly since Korean Air said they only arranged seat at check in which we couldn’t check in as early as we wished due to the delay. And from Korea to New York, they lost our 4 luggages. How horrible could that be ? We are thinking about suing justly."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good movie selection, USB port."
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: "Nothing at all. It was hell and you should be ashamec ofhiw you treated me."

Pros: "The staff"

Cons: "The code share airline"
Pros: "The stewardesses are very good and attentive."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Lots of space on airbus. Great choices of entertainment though Singapore airlines has much more choices."

Pros: "I liked everything about my flight from the attendants to the food. Overall, it was a great experience. :)"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and the food was very good, The flight was on time."
Cons: "All the advertisement books in the pouch were a pain. I could have put my reading materials in that space. The advertisements could be offered to passengers during the flight. Wouldn't probably need as many. Also, the cup holder should be up higher on the back of the seat. I kept bumping it with my knee and spilling it."
Cons: "The flight attendant didn't speak much English also they didn't tell the passengers to ascend the seat when serving the food."
Pros: "The incheon airport efficiency, the food Inboard, the transit was food."
Cons: "No snacks like ice cream or snacks. Crew was not as sensitive and attractive to passengers."

Pros: "Nice short flight. Houston is easy to navigate. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "They didnt want to board my twins and I early so we blocked the aisle as i got them sorted. I had to sit over the aisle from my children as it was a 2 2 seating but the staff didnt seem to pursue where their mother was even though i was 1 row back. They didn't need me but i thought they should have at least enquired as to where the parent was of 2 11 yr olds. They were also curt trying to rush us off the flight as my daughter was trying to locate a lost item as we arrived. She has limited sight and we need time to get off and to find things.... given she has lost an iPad, and very expensive reading glasses and other things on the trips that span 24 - 36 hrs."
Pros: "Nice smile and service. Food is good as well"
Cons: "Arrived later than schedule"
Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."

Pros: "Aircraft menu and service"
Cons: "Aircraft seat pitch"
Cons: "I was pleased with all."
Cons: "The check-in at LAX. They form 2 different lines for Economy. The 1st line was lined with the people arriving first. Then the 2nd line started to fill later. But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"
Pros: "the place. new. lots of space for the legs. air inside the plane was better than others."
Cons: "kosher food is a no go. you need to improve this. also to hold fruits for vegi clients."
Pros: "lunch was filling, ordered gluten free meal, received more food than expected, beef steak was good, potatoes nicely roasted, also got a side of large prawns (2) and a crab leg. Aircraft is a bit dated, seats hardly reclined beyond 10 degrees."
Cons: "Cabin is bit old, seats don't recline enough, smells musty."
Pros: "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome. Seats can be a bit cramped but we were in economy and it's a 9 hour flight so some discomfort is expected. The 3 meals served are complimentary and very much appreciated. The entertainment system is an easy to use touch screen with great options from Hollywood and other movie sources."
Pros: "The problem is not that I missed the flight, as I am currently in my way to my destination. The issue was the poor support, I mean is ok I know I didn't make it, but I don't want to hwar what I already know, tell me what can be done... waited 7 hours for someone available... the phone at the counter is useless"
Cons: "What about next time you put more instructions on the counter so that we don't waste hours trying to find a way to contact you..."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful airline staff and flight attendants. Efficient boarding. Departed on time. Great in flight service."

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Choices of food."
Cons: "The food tasted very much like caned food and the seat had a pouch from wear and tear which wasn't very comfortable at all. Service didn't seem to anticipate service or emphasize needs."
Pros: "Great airline. If I give United 1 *, then ANA gets 4* in my book. The staff and flight attendants are very attentive to your needs, polite, always pleasant. I've been using ANA for my frequent trips between Japan and the states, they are consistent. The in flight food is good. You will get complimentary wine, Haagen Dazs ice cream dessert. Cathay Pacific also serve HD ice cream, but half the size on lunch meal. ANA serve on both meals."
Cons: "i could give ANA a 5*, but I think their web site needs work ! their web navigation is kinda confused, a little bit less intuitive. If you are in the US you need to log on to the ANA US site, the JP site is in Japanese and it will not redirect you to US. On line check in can get confused as a lot of time it would not recognize the booking number, you have to use a long 10 digit e-ticket number. My fight from Tokyo to HKG would let me check in and get seat assignment until 24 hours before the scheduled flight. The seat map shows all seat ps were taken without telling what is going on."
Pros: "The movie selection and food served were pleasant surprises."
Cons: "Sore butt after 10 hours , but that's hardly anyone's fault. No complaints about my experience. 10/10"

Cons: "The flight crew was great. Also there was more then enough in flight entertainment for the entire flight."
Cons: "Wish it was easier to book gluten free meal"
Pros: "The flight crew heard word we were headed to Japan for our wedding. They quiety prepared a card and a beautiful bouquet made out of candies and straws. Absolutely brilliant and so sweet to receive such a from-the-heart gift. Thanks to the wonderful staff on the March 31st 2016 flight. We were truly blown away and so grateful for the wonderful service and welcome."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Flight was on time. Meals were good. Will be flying with EVA again"
Pros: "2 passengers seats Food Quick boarding Flight on time"
Pros: "Economy seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable, a mannequin would complain and to add insult to injury , the obvious placements of overly extravagant “first class” seats vs regular economy seats , were very off putting. People are sitting on cardboard for hours on end , add some comfort to your seats!"
Cons: "More humanly comfortable seats , I understand you get what you pay for, but having to be deliberately uncomfortable for 13 hours straight is extremely unfair."
Pros: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and the food ran out. The entertainment did not work. Plus we were over an hour late once we finally got off the plane"
Cons: "More legroom, but what do I expect in economy?"
Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."
Cons: "I'm really picky and there's nothing more I could have wanted in an economy flight experience."
Pros: "Plane was new and comfy."
Cons: "Prefer hot food."
Pros: "Bathroom very nice. Food nice."
Cons: "Economy seats a bit too cramped."
Pros: "good as expected"

Cons: "Flight is delay，take a long line for transfer, it makes me dizzy，got bad mood"
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "Anytime I have flown with a star alliance airline, I've been more than satisfied with the flight, the cost, the crew and the service. All star alliance member airlines are an excellent choice. Truly EVA is one of the "Stars" in Asia and it shows."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "If flight attendant is sick, she shouldn’t work."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very attentive and polite. The journey was smooth. Overall great experience!"
Pros: "Almost same as SF to Taipei"
Cons: "Without asking about drinks and just passed me"
Pros: "Very hardworking and friendly cabin crew and very efficient service onboard. Lots of little finishing touches like free toothbrush/paste, eyecovers, earplugs in washrooms. Larger and better quality LCD screens in their B777-300ER plane."
Cons: "Economy seat space is tight but not different from other major airlines unless you pay extra for more leg space."
Pros: "Nothing to like about."
Pros: "Loading and unloading was quick and easy. There was sufficient room for our overhead luggages."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available. The cheeseburger was very low quality."
Pros: "Has snack and drink"
Cons: "No music"
Cons: "the wheel chair servers we're not enough. One person handle ed three wheel chairs. I was the last person boarding."
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Pros: "Liked the seats, legroom. Good value for price."
Cons: "Food could be better. Crew could be friendlier. They did their job but did not have the warmth of crew of other airlines I’ve flown."
Cons: "delayed flight terrible asian food no Usb charger"
Pros: "Very plain connecting segment of the flights. Food were not tasty. Service was OK but not great"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."
Pros: "I liked the service and the politeness of all the staff. The food and beverages were also great."
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "Been 10 years since traveling, usually I would fly United Airlines no more. Eva Air is outstanding!"
Pros: "The movie selection was ok. Could be better."
Cons: "Is there anyway to get the tv screens to be less bright? The guy in front of me had movies playing and I could not sleep because the screen was shining right in my face. The food. ick. Airplane food is bad as it is but this was terrible. I had some pork over rice dish that was grody with an overly sweet dessert cake/pudding concoction. The breakfast congee was ok."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "No meal choice."
Pros: "customer service was superb. very polite staff. amenities made one feel comfortable during the entire flight. food and entertainment was great"
Cons: "would provide wider movie selection"
Pros: "Just ok nothing special."
Cons: "Uncomfortable Seats, Food not good."
Pros: "16 hour flight to Taipei in Business Class. Seats, service, cabin, amenity kit and bathroom were all better than Cathay and other similar airlines. Plane itself was great. Love the 777-300."
Cons: "Nothing. Was great."
Pros: "Oriental vegetarian meal was thoughtfully organized and tastes well."
Cons: "The sauce was old and make me sick."
Pros: "We were very pleased with the seating for our long-haul flight. Male 6'2"/230lbs and I had plenty of room to stretch out. Entertainment options were great (plenty of free TV, movies, games in the in-headrest system) as well as reasonably priced WiFi ($21.95 USD for 24 hours, which continues across multiple flights - downside is it's one login at a time, pricey if you have multi users). Food was hit or miss. Generally there was enough of it, but leaned toward Asian-style, which is not always appetizing to western palates (ex: seafood in tomato gelatin). Western options were generally available."
Cons: "The crew never went through to pick up garbage - only collecting the food trays once after meals. Had to chase them down to get rid of cups, napkins, etc. Cabin was a bit warm for my liking. Food (see pros)."
Pros: "In flight food was delicious and crew was very friendly"
Pros: "There was nothing good about this experience. Management at the highest levels made decisions that showed gross inattention to the wellbeing of passengers and crews."
Cons: "My wife and I were scheduled to fly out of Taipei on the day a major typhoon made a direct hit on Taiwan. Taipei was shut down, offices and shops were closed, residents were sheltering at home, and other carriers had cancelled essentially all flights during the 10 hours when the storm was projected to be over the island and had posted long delays (of 8 and 10 hours and longer) on their uncancelled flights. Only EVA stubbornly clung to the fiction that our flight and others would actually depart -- and depart on time. EVA's refusal to acknowledge reality -- and timely communicate that reality to its customers -- made planning impossible, stranding passengers at hotels without bookings, preventing contingency planning and forcing many passengers to make needless trips to the airport over treacherous roads made hazardous by heavy flooding, downed trees, blowing debris, high winds and blinding rain. EVA's decisions cost us money, inconvenience, time and anxiety. For the passengers and crews on inbound planes that EVA actually landed or tried to land in Taipei that day, the consequences were worse: head and other injuries from extreme turbulence and hard landings, and then hours on tarmacs unable to deplane because the winds were above the maximum level for the safe deployment of jetways. Getting out the next day with an upgrade to business class doesn't do it for me. I am a United 1K-Star Alliance Gold flyer. I fly a fair amount and I expect, above all else, an uncompromising focus on safety and clear, candid and timely communication. Never again EVA."
Pros: "Food was provided on a short flight. It was an unexpected surprise."
Pros: "Great accommodations ! Very nice staff who were thoughtful and caring."
Pros: "Loved the airline it was great!"
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."
Cons: "Total gong show getting to our connecting flight in HK, but Cathay Pacific got us there with only seconds to spare."
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."
Cons: "I found my pillowcase has a long human hair. And noticed the same in the other pillows around my seat. Also, the tray table has a few spots of food stain. One of the toilets, the hinge of the toilet seat is broken"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great"
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms, cramped seats, and still can't believe they still load the front of the plane first... takes forever"
Pros: "Crew is very good and efficient, generally very friendly and helpful. Seats are fairly spacious and comfortable. The flight was only slightly delayed. Food and drinks are quite readily available. Meal quality is nothing amazing, but it's definitely not bad."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Happy with everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Good options for food including meals and snacks! Cabin crew was great."
Cons: "Crew sometimes a little slow responding to passengers paging from their seats."
Pros: "Crew were outstanding and food was awesome"
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."
Pros: "Everything was great !"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good service. No wait for restroom"
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Pros: "Excellent all around. The A350 is much quieter than older jets - a real asset on a long flight."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were great, entertainment had lots of options"
Cons: "They only had this tasteless shrimp slop leftover by the time they got to me for dinner. I didn't eat it and asked for a snack after and was refused. Other than being hungry it was great. The next meal was fine also."
Pros: "Food was alright. Service was good. FA’s attentive."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather in nyc, lights turned on in am and the. Turned off again after breakfast (confused senses). Ran out of certain meal types."
Cons: "Can not catch up the fight to guangzhou"
Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Slow food service, average food. Slow after meal pick up."
Pros: "Seats weren't much comfortable."
Cons: "Food wasn't bad but above average."
Cons: "Ordered a vegetarian meal that was never delivered."
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."
Pros: "Entertainment is always highlight"
Cons: "Crew services- trying to put my backpack up the space on the rack. But the crew says it is better to put my backpack under the chair. He explain it is more convenient to me. 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: "Everything was on time, with no hitches or major inconveniences."
Cons: "I prefer the newer planes which include USB ports for charging mobile devices. This one had a power socket instead, which was usable, but only when the tray table was down, which was mildly annoying. First world problem, really."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "A free upgrade to premium economy - I think the flight was over booked."
Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "I really appreciated that Cathay flew another plane in to pick us up when our original aircraft was mechanically grounded at the previous destination. The crew were very professional."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to mechanical failure and didn't arrive from its destination: Taipei. We were not told about the possibility of our flight being cancelled as we arrived at check-in, we were allowed to check our bags first, issued boarding passes and *then* we were told to come back to check in counter in 3.5-4 hours. Our checked luggage had already been taken and with it, clean clothes, toiletries and other items that could have made the waiting more comfortable. After coffee and a snack we decided to check in to the capsule hotel at Narita. Minimum stay was one night at that hour of the day - for stays after 6pm. While I appreciated that Cathay got us out later that evening, the plane we flew was one of the oldest in the fleet: the seats did not recline at all so it was very uncomfortable. It was a late night flight but no one was offered pillows or blankets. (I did receive one upon request). We arrived in Hong Kong in the early hours of the next morning - 3 hours late - after the airport train had finished running so I paid for a taxi home which I normally would not need to do since I already had a train ticket. so my flight experience did cost me some extra money this trip."
Pros: "Unfortunately nothing positive to write"
Cons: "Disappointing service, poor upkeep of planes, not at all punctual (travelled multiple legs with Cathay, not one of them took off on time). Bad airline, getting worse"
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: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"
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."
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."
Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The guy in front reclined for the whole 14 hour flight so I didn't have much leg room."
Cons: "The food was simple and not enough for Cathay Pacific standard"
Pros: "Cabin crew always smiling and helping out"
Cons: "Seat can not be reclined, where it makes you slouch, very uncomfortable position. Meal time is rather odd, should be re schedule since we depart on early morning hour."
Cons: "Manila airport traffic"
Pros: "Spacious seating, good food, excellent trip overall!"
Pros: "Food nice, much better than KLM. Typical great Asian service."
Cons: "No information as to why boarding was over 30 minutes late, even though last call was announced!"
Pros: "Sing-Hong Kong seating comfort."
Cons: "Terrible food on Cathay now. All meals were barely edible."
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
Cons: "The crew needs a bit of retraining. It's almost like we are unwanted guests on there aircraft rather then the customer."
Pros: "Comfortable premium economy seat. Nice crew."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were repetitive and pretty boring and devoid of any source of protein."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was a bit too warm, I sweated a bit during mid flight from the heat."

Pros: "Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!"

Cons: "it’s a pity that i missed the hot snack of premium economy."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth since I was sky priority"

Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "Chairs in business class in A 330 were not too good in my view"
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Cons: "Airplane use to fly from Taipei to Ho Chi Minh old and dirty."

Cons: "The only problem with the flight was out of China Airlines control. A shuttle bus to terminal had issues and we had to wait onboard for another bus. The crew still did a great job keeping us informed of the situation."
Cons: "I need, wheelchair service for this trip but very disappointed the service. I carried my bag to find my seat by my myself. The crew only helped me to put up the bag and my umbrella stick until I asked."
Cons: "I was flying with todler and they dont have food option for kids also the menu was only left to one choice, and it's too spicy for todler to eat, so it was bad in food choice."

Pros: "The restrooms were very clean, and I appreciated that some even offered lotion. Staff were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Generally comfortable. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Entertainment was limited. The screens were outdated, making it difficult to watch anything."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."
Pros: "Flight landing delayed 30min, cutting into transfer time. China Airlines was amazing in making sure I didn't miss it. They moved me up towards the front of the plane and had personnel at jetway to escort me through baggage claim and customs. Thank you for the great customer service!"

Pros: "Crew ! Very quick and accomodating"
Cons: "Oh the veggies in the noodles was kinda overcooked but the noodles is delecious"
