WOW!! Can I say - just WOW!. First of all the flight attendants. Dressed to the "T", incredibly efficient and incredibly professional. I have flown a lot. I mean a lot and this was by far the best experience ever. The plane interior was immaculate. The service outstanding, They are the example of what an airline should be.

Korean Air has been an airline I used to fly all the time between Bangkok and LA. Last year I flew EVA AIR and was not really impressed. The price was the only fact in last years flight. This year Korean Air was better than the rest. The flight from Incheon to LA was comfortable except for the long periods...

One can tell why this is China's 1st choice for an airline. The movie selection is great, the service is even better. More snacks are provided when you ask. Various juices offered several times throughout flight. One time when I asked if the single glass of juice offered was pineapple and I declined it because it was orange, the attendant...

The food and service on Korean Air, irrespective of cabin class, is always excellent. The Korean option is always particularly good. I had travelled from Shanghai (PVG) to Seoul (ICN) and was en route to Yangon (RGN). On the previous flight I had a delicious spicy chicken dish and on the second flight I tried the bibingka. It was delicious...

Service was attentive and staff very professionally dressed. Seating was relatively comfortable (13 hour flight), good in house entertainment (very few American/English TV shows). Food offered was mainly Korean and a take on American food, snacks were Korean. Food was well presented. Actual glasses for wine and wine was offered twice during dinner service. Breakfast was a regular meal and...
