I liked the A300 used is was in very nice condition and the leg room was reasonable. The cabin crew was above average. The pilots were smooth on take off and landing.
The departure gate announcements in English were hard to understand. The landing jetway was used to disembark, but then we had to use stairs to the tarmac and board a bus to get from the domestic terminal (we were an international flight) to the international terminal. Because of this many passengers, especially the elderly, were unprepared for this situation and their carry on luggage.
Had to get off Korean air in Seoul & go thru terribly bogged down customs, just to transfer & continue on another Korean air plane - both ways! Barely made it to my 2nd plane even though I practically ran thru the big airport after the customs delay - both on my way to Hanoi & on my return. Got to Vancouver & only found out by accident that my checked bag would NOT be transferred to my Seattle flight, even though my tag clearly said to pick it up in Seattle. Had to disembark, claim my bag, then go thru the departure procedure at Vancouver all over again, with 2 customs checks: enter Canada, re board to U.S.
I really appreciated getting a meal on the plane despite the short two hour flight. I've always liked flying Korean Air due to their cleanliness, presentable flight attendants and good customer service.
The only thing I seemed to have a problem with was the volume and clearness that came out of my headphones. Although the headphones were provided by the airlines, the volume came out a little unclear and kind of scratchy. Other than that, everything was great.
The staff were very courteous right from the Checking-in point.
The cabin crew was not taking that much care and as the ground staff. No snacks or drinks are served till upto 4 hour of the flight commencement. Food was served just two hours before landing in Hongkong. My order for meals was AVML. Bengaluru is a good place to pick up good, nutritious, and tasty Vegetarian food. But what was offerred was absolutely mediocre.
Leg space was barest minimum and not comfortable for a person with normal legs and height.
Took one hour to check in.
Charged $70 for EACH normal carry on.
Air temperature in cabin bloody freezing.
Crew are pleasing on the eye, but they do not appear to be interested in the comfort of the passengers.
Same trip with LAN Sydney to Auckland....free food plus all drinks...Air Asia even a cup of tea came with a price. Similar fares charged by both airlines.
Entertainment a joke! Not one monitor or adapter in cabin!!!
