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 cabin crew were very friendly and attentive.
The food and mid flight snacks were delicious and free, the on-board entertainment was extremely diverse, entertaining and free, the offer of a glass of wine with my meal was delightful and having a bottle of water waiting in my seat pocket was very thoughtful and much needed during mid-flight.
Quantas may not be as high tech as some of its sister airlines but the basic needs of its passengers are met without fanfare or need to fuss around with price lists and coupons and wether or not you have a debit card, credit card, visa or mastercard, cash or indeed, no card or cash at all.
Quantas is my airline of choice and they have delivered every time.
Let's start with the overrated leg space and seating comfort. It was cramped as with any other regular airline. Seats in the economy section are not comfortable and have no back support. These seats should have better cushions and back support. Our flight attendant had a bad attitude after we asked for wine and didn't offered us any beverages for at least two occasions. No warm towel either. She just skipped us like we were not there. The meals are just ok. Nothing remarkable. Then we stand in line for almost two hours after a 14.5 hours flight to get through immigration. The overall experience was not good at all and for that price the comfort and service should be much better.
Boarding process was pretty smooth. Food was OK and the on-flight entertainment was good. I liked having the camera on the plane where you could see over where we were flying as well as the frontal camera. Also liked the map views.
I had heard so many great comments about this airline and overall airlines traveling abroad. Yes the plane looked nice and the flight attendants looked flawless, but I had no luck when it came to the flight attendant that was in charge of my isle. She was not friendly, and gave me a judgmental look when I asked for a refill for red wine. Tickets are very expensive and I'm sure most folks using this airline have made lots of efforts and sacrifice to be able to pay for their trip. Such was my case, as I was on vacation with my sister and had been planning for this trip for a very long time. Seats were very uncomfortable and it was warm inside the plane the whole time. in the end we got to Incheon safely and on time, and I guess that's what matters...
