  • While a variety of airlines journey from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) to John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), we recommend looking at flights from providers American Airlines and Qantas Airways. With many daily flights from Sydney to JFK, any delays or cancellations can be quickly amended.
  • John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the primary airport servicing New York City and is the largest in the area; however, for travellers looking to stay near New Jersey, in areas such as Lower Manhattan or Staten Island, it is worth looking for flights into Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). While the airport is much smaller and can therefore accommodate less traffic, it is located closer to these areas than JFK Airport and can offer shorter drive times.
  • For travellers who are able to drive and are seeking to explore nearby American cities such as Philadelphia, it is generally advisable to fly into JFK Airport rather than Newark Airport or other surrounding airports; JFK Airport is the primary airport in the area and able to accommodate a greater volume of flights.
  • For travellers with an early flight out of Sydney and looking to find a hotel nearby, we suggest staying at the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel. Located across from the International Terminal at Sydney Airport, the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel is brilliant for anyone not wanting to worry about the journey to the airport.
  • If you plan on driving to Sydney Airport, make sure to park in car park P7. This dedicated car park for international travellers is only a 5min walk from the terminal. Alternatively, a valet service is available for a fee, just outside the departure gates.
  • If you want to leave the car at home while you holiday, we recommend catching the Sydney Airport Line train that runs throughout the day between the airport and the city centre. While during peak times the train can get very crowded, it is in general cheaper than taking a taxi.

Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."

Cons: "No space for cabin bags. Late by 2 hours. Super rude and passive aggressive staff. Kept in bus at Frankfurt for 10 mins. Won’t fly BA again if i can help it."

Cons: "Everything. Screens were small. Leg space was little to none. Food was trrrible. I will never fly with JAL again"

Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."

Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."

Cons: "Food can be better."

Cons: "Why does the shorter of the two flights have more comfortable seats?"

Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Using two doors and a twin aisle plane made boarding very efficient despite the size of the plane and the number of people. Free WiFi worked surprisingly well - I was able to make a video call to my family. The plane was clean and tidy . Not really much more to say as it was a very short flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."

Cons: "Flight attendants have poor English and get upset if you ask for snacks or anything that makes them have to get supplies"

Pros: "Crew, food, comfort, entertainment and many good things"
Cons: "I love everything"

Pros: "Punctual take off and landing, attentive crew, excellent entertainment system (Especially for short haul flight). One of the best meals I’ve had in the air too - great that this along with unlimited drinks was free!"

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: "We liked the boarding in Atlanta and in Seoul with the people boarding by the numbers of their rows - boarded the back rows, then the middle then the front. Worked so much better than everyone rushing to get on! Flight attendants were very helpful with everything and always kind. Loved being able to sit in the exit row seats!!"
Cons: "Food was okay - we fly Korean Air whenever we travel to SE Asia and it seems the food is the same no matter what flight we are on. We like the pizza snack better than the bun with meat inside they served us on this trip."

Pros: "Same as above."

Pros: "Boarded on time; everything efficiently done; pleasant staff. Breakfast was not great - too sweet overall. Usually korean does well with food."

Pros: "Food was really good - nice mix of Korean and European menu. Good entertainment system; attentive staff offering drinks and snacks. Comfortable chair."

Cons: "Korean Air refused to provide accommodation for my 19 hours layover even I had two flights with Korean Air. The reason provided was simple: "We don't have you on the list". The fact that it's 8 pm and had known nothing about South Korea meant nothing."

Pros: "The comfortable aircraft and its services"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "Excellent movie selection."
Cons: "Food made my wife sick. Probably a bad shrimp. Passenger next to me thought I was a pillow."

Pros: "Again on board everything was wonderful. The A380 was the most comfortable plane I've ever been in. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later.

Pros: "very accommodating for handicap"

Pros: "First class on Korean long haul does not disappoint!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"

Pros: "From the April 12 Sydney to Seoul flight, the landing at Seoul was so smooth, so professionally done I hardly knew we had touched ground. That Captain has much to teach all pilots wanting a higher standard to their skills and the recognition of these standards. That caption is worth his/her weight in gold, giving Koran Air a gold standard. To compare, the landing at Osaka April 12, late at night, was done by an apprentice who has much to learn from your gold star captain.."
Cons: "The same Sydney to Seoul flight, crossed the Qld Great Barrier Reef around 11am April 12. Having a window seat, so much detail of the Reef was visible which greatly surprised me. Beautiful colours galore. Having my face glued to the window at this time, I was unaware of cabin happenings. A male steward tapped me on the shoulder and said "Close your window blind". The beautiful scene outside my window was a first and being 76 old, likely not to happen again for me. Naturally, I ask the male steward "Why", He repeated 4 more times, "Close your window blind". Each time my reply was the same, "Why". On his last request, his voice raised, so in turn, my reply was raised. Sadly, he walked away silently, hands waving in disgust. Only then did I realise the cabin was completely black, no light seen. If at 11am, traditionally, this is a custom, a service to passengers on that particular flight, the male steward didn't say. He clearly expected to be obeyed and didn't expect a challenge. But also felt I didn't deserve a reason for his, what clearly was a demand. Would he have treated a male passenger differently. I flew economy because that is what my budget demands. Flying is not common for me but certainly a thrill that demands a window seat. I give much praise to all other staff, especially the captain landing that very craft at Seoul. At my age, years of experience allows me to be aware and notice. A beautifully presented mature female stewardess in economy, served me. When I requested a beer with the main meal, she said I will give you my favourite. I knew this was double talk for having only one brand beer left, that was a weak American beer. I watched this lovely lady many times being distracted by other staff with questions and 2 other passengers near me, asking for changes. She never blew it. And she passed me in the Sydney terminal, end of the day for her and believe it or not, she remembered me. She was not in such a hurry to get to her destination, that she gave time by turning her body, giving me a wide smile with eyes saying, Yes, I served you. You see, she's never off the job of customer service. I learned much, flying with Korean Air. Many thanks, Sally"

Pros: "Thoughtfulness, professionalism, patience and a lot of love put into the service."

Pros: "Overall the flight met expectations for service, comfort and food."

Pros: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"

Pros: "Service Quality"
Cons: "Seat does not recline"

Pros: "ANA is always efficient and polite."
Cons: "Just drinks no snacks on this flight"

Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."

Pros: "The cabin crew was always found to be welcoming and co-operative attitude. Rest Rooms (Toilets) were found to be clean whenever visited."

Pros: "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
Cons: "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."

Cons: "No tv/ intertainment on the plane"

Pros: "Crew is awesome and nice"

Pros: "Great service by the crew! Excellent food and flight was on time,"
Cons: "Film and movie offerings and music entertainment while on board should be improved with more selections."

Pros: "It was alright."

Pros: "easy check in."
Cons: "can't choose my own seats."

Pros: "Food and Sitting Space"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Sitting space"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First, I did an online check-in and was able to secure a seat for the first leg of the flight, but was able to get any information on my second leg. So when I arrived at the Thai Airways counter to load in my bags I asked the Thai Airways representative about the missing information. His response was that he could not get into the ANA system and that I have to go to the ANA counter to ask for that information. Given that my layover in Narita was only about 45mins landing to going to the gate, I was not comfortable with not knowing if I would be on that flight or not. The Thai Airways representation at the boarding counter did help me a bit and got in touch with a guide in Narita to help me get my luggages and get to gate properly. I wanted to note that we did not arrive in Narita on time due to the high air traffic so the plane had to circle around for 15 mins. When we finally landed I had about 15 mins to get through the custom and ran to my gate. When I received my ticket I was shocked that I got a middle seat on a 13 hours flight! If I have known this earlier I would have paid for a better seat, but since I was not able to check-in online and didn't receive any info about this flight prior to boarding I was not allowed to change on this full flight. In addition, the plane ride was awful. The food was disgusting and the seat was very uncomfortable. The seat did not even recline back! I don't expect much from a short distance flight but for a 13 hour long flight, I at least expect the seat to be slightly better than sitting on a rock against a brick wall. All in all, this was a HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE I went through. The stress and the discomfort on the plane was an experience that no one should ever feel while traveling. It was an awful nightmare on an ANA flight. I would like a refund on this flight with no exceptions. Sincerely, Jessica Saesue"

Cons: "19 hours overlay in ORD. I had to check out all luggages again. Terrible."

Pros: "Shortest duration"

Cons: "https://twitter.com/devanshsoni10/status/940564856142311424"

Pros: "Overall experience was excellent. Seating as spacious in economy as I have had in some airlines' premium economy. Food was fresh and quite tasty although nothing to rave about. The staff are always a delight on ANA."
Cons: "The Hollywood entertainment options were limited and not very interesting."

Pros: "The plane wasn't that full so I had a lot of space."
Cons: "the seat itself is still uncomfortable to put in the extended position to relax. Plus the headrest doesn't move very well so it's hard to get a comfortable head position when trying to sleep. The crew took forever getting everyone on the plane I have no idea why it took so long considering they're worn so many people on the flight. The food wasn't very good except for the marble loaf."

Pros: "crew was professional and very attentive and beer and wine and ice cream on the flight"
Cons: "wish they had more movies choices from the u.s."

Pros: "Cheap prise"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"

Cons: "Food can be more variable but overall its oke"

Cons: "Interior show signs of aging"

Pros: "Flight left on time, service is good and also good entertainment options. Food is a bit so-so frankly but not bad."

Cons: "seat labeling not clear"

Pros: "Food and entertainment is great."
Cons: "Boarding process. System was down. Very strict with the bagage rule. Excessive bagage charge is very expensive, unlike Eva air"

Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Pros: "Qatar Airways are still flying, in the midst of Coronavirus, unlike their competitors. This is fantastic! Onboard, there was a full service and excellent crew, all through the night, unlike their competitors during the early days of Coronavirus, when I last flew. Thank you. Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The movie selection, although vast, was not great. I resorted to downloaded Netflix on my tablet."

Pros: "Food was good and crew"
Cons: "Old aircraft from Doha to Dhaka."

Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."

Pros: "Nothing to like on that flight."
Cons: "Very poor customer service, Qatar Airways should be ashamed of providing worst than third world kind service in the Doha - Dhaka route."

Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "The service as usual on Qatar is excellent"
Cons: "2-2-2 setup is old style for business class and while the seats were nice it means either you are stuck by the window or need to move to let others out in the aisle"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "The 2 trips were fantastic. From checking in to getting off the aircraft, service was a-okay."
Cons: "No comment."

Pros: "From the ground crew to the flight staff, everyone was superb! Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "I can't think of anything to make it better."

Pros: "Seat where comfortable and thank needed more leg space"
Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."

Pros: "Same again the crew were fab"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Ambiance"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."

Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"

Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "Ended up having spare seats beside me. Planes were new and in great condition. Staff were very good."

Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."

Cons: "going with RJ in the first leg"

Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"

Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."

Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."

Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"

Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."

Pros: "Crew were extremely helpful and kind. Very responsible and polite."
Cons: "LCD was not touch screen and was extremely difficult to work with . I couldn't scape from an accidental menu which I was dropped in games and missed whole flight to enjoy something in LCD ."

Pros: "the flight was comfortable"

Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."

Pros: "The crew were so polite and helpful."
Cons: "Archaic entertainment system. Cabin was dull and seats not up to standard of other airlines business class."

Cons: "Transfer in Seoul could have been easier to understand"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I tried to cancel the flight more than 14 days before the flight and you didn't let me. I couldn't fly that day and i have not received a refund"

Pros: "On time, smooth landing."
Cons: "Food was so-so, a little too salty."

Pros: "Didn’t like any part of the flight."
Cons: "The cabin was way too hot for comfort. The food wasn’t good. Little entertainment options."

Cons: "2 hour delay from Incheon to Tokyo. Messed up our travel plan a bit."

Pros: "A380"

Pros: "Efficient check 8n process and great on board entertainment options."

Pros: "The cew is very friendly but need to improve their English."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Food options. General service offering in business class"

Pros: "Business class seats are a lot more comfortable than earlier versions."

Pros: "Kind and professional service."
Cons: "Food I like to have was run out so I had to eat whatever available."

Pros: "다른 항공사 비행기에 비해 좌석이 넓은편임. USB 포트는 기본에 콘센트까지 있어서 놀람. 엔터테이먼트는 주로 한국 방송들 위주였던듯."
Cons: "아시아나 기내식 괜찮다고 들어 기대했으나 싱가폴항공보다 별로였음. 비빔밥에 단무지2개 계란말이 한조각.. 싱가폴항공은 비빔밥에 김치도 주는데.. 그리고 밥 다먹고 빵 먹는다고 식기 걷을때 나이프랑 컵을 못 냈는데 다시 가지러 안옴..-_-;; 캔이랑 컵이랑 다 가지고 있었는데 다시 수거하러 와야하는거 아닌가..?"

Pros: "They made sure everyone was happy with all service."

Cons: "I do not understand why only one bag was allowed to be checked if it was an international flight. When it was boarding time, there was no organization. It was whoever lined up first."

Pros: "Access to restrooms through out the plane should be encouraged to avoid traffic by users in one particular area"

Pros: "This airline and this model of aircraft (Airbus 380) makes a 14 hr transpacific flight almost enjoyable! We've flown this route numerous time and this was by far the most comfortable experience"

Pros: "The price: my round trip ticket from Tokyo Haneda to JFK was only 850USD The layover is only 2 hours which is bearable and enough time to find the boarding gate and a little shopping."
Cons: "Everything else. You can check-in online within 48 hrs before your flight, but there is no QR code produced on their app for paperless check-in. The food was terrible, and the seats were not made for long flights. I really felt the "economy" vibe. They only provide disposable slippers, but everything else you need to check the lavatories if there were toothbrushes or mouthwash packets left. Overall, I will still consider flying this airline for any emergency flight back to the US, but if there will be a compeittive airline, maybe i'd try another. Their business class seem enticing.. maybe comsoder it too."

Pros: "Both of my roung trip got delayed for about an hour. The service was very so so compared to Korean Air. I couldn't get tickets through Korean Air because of no ticket available but next time I will definitely look forward Korean Air only."
Cons: "Just about everything."

Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great bassinet for baby Excellent entertainment"
Cons: "Terrible food, not enough food given the long haul distance, not enough water provided"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "Great service, comfy spacious seats, decent meal service"
Cons: "Food was a bit bland"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Dirty plane. Floor and tables not cleaned."

Pros: "The service and experience was excellent"
Cons: "I only wish the seats were more comfortable for such a long flight. I understand that the length of the flight cannot be changed… It is just difficult to set the entire time. I wish the premium seats cost less so that I could afford to lay down"

Pros: "I liked the airbus used to fly from and to the USA. On a 15 hour flight comfort is key, and they did their best. The have build little foot pedals to rest your feet on. Meals also came often, and the food was on the better end of airplane food. Crew was also very friendly!"

Cons: "The crew only came around with water every 3 hours or so. This is unacceptable on a long flight."

Pros: "Everyone was so personable. We had 4 adults , 2 boys and a baby girl so it was hard to get everyone situated but with the staff on the plane it was just simplicity. All of our needs were met , wether it was someone wanting an extra blanket or the baby needing food or even helping the 2 boys get situated before and after take off . They apparently love babies because they couldn't get enough of ours and were always wanting to play with her and make her smile (which goes along way) and that helped her not feel so groggy on the plane . They know it's a long flight so they get you comfortable even down to giving you slippers and great tasting food."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the long flight but that's not the staffs fault, it was inevitable if your flying halfway across the world . the plane had 12 inch touch screen tv with music, movies, games , news , kids entertainment and even how to learn Korean so it it was very helpful in keeping you entertained throughout the plane ride ."

Pros: "The crew was lovely and very helpful. They were attentive and constantly providing beverages. The films were nice and a large selection. The food was delicious and it was overall a lovely flight which was nice since it was over 13 hours in length."
Cons: "It would have been nice for slightly more space but it is definitely not the most cramped economy class I have sat in. Additionally, it would have been nice to have different movies from my flight to Seoul but there is so much too choose from that this is not a real issue either."

Pros: "Everything was great except for delay."
Cons: "The delays."

Pros: "For the duration of 5.5hours, 1 main meal and 1 snack were served. Prompt drinks and meal service"
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment. Only a few screens from the ceiling, with poor viewing angles."

Pros: "As expected, the crews' service were good. Comfortable seats and nice meals."
Cons: "On the way back to Singapore, there was no entertainment in each seat. Didn't expect this and never experience from my previous flight with Asiana. There was the main screen in the centre but I can't choose and the lights were on all the way when I tried to sleep. Disappointed that they didn't inform in advance. People expect Asiana as same as SQ which provides full of new equipment such as personal screen on each seat."

Pros: "they to change the movie selection going to and from food was just okay Service was excellent No problems experienced"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Pros: "My travel with asiana is excellent. The crew are so professional and helpful..except for boarding need to be more organized.."

Cons: "No vegetarian food."

Pros: "For 14 hours, it was passable. Food surprisingly good (only chose Asian selections; Western food looked dismal). More movie options would be nice."

Pros: "It's just cozy and wonderful. Thank you Asiana."
Cons: "Nothing that I can mention about."

Pros: "l like the flight schedule and shutter bus to airport. staff was friendly and polite."

Pros: "Good food and entertainment. Crew was attentive and kind. Checkin was a breeze. Icheon airport is modern, comfortable and traveler focused."
Cons: "Economy class seats were hard to sleep in."

Pros: "Cabin crew were charming and v. attentive. Food was particularly good. generous with additionals, food ,snacks,beverages etc. Decent leg room , comfortable seats."

Pros: "Good service and food."

Pros: "On my long-haul flight from Seoul to JFK - the middle seat in my row was empty, the seats were much more spacious than Cathay Pacific, and I appreciated how there wasn't a 10 minute promotional video before watching every movie/TV show as with other airlines. I am very satisfied with this airline overall!"

Pros: "THE staff were really nice and kind."
Cons: "Not enough snack small amount of wine usually you get 1 small bottle. NOT enough movies choice. No control on the air over your head."

Pros: "Everything was great, to be honest. If this was 3, 4 years ago, I'd have given it 5 stars across the board without hesitation."
Cons: "No wifi on the flights means I'm limited to working offline and Asiana's IFE system, which was amazing but had limited selection."

Pros: "I like how they gave us an empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. It was better on the way in. Boarding took forever. It didnt seem like they came around with beverages."

Pros: "Enjoyed the flight overall - wish there was better food."
Cons: "It's not the airlines' fault, but the passengers next to me were a little strange and were always up in my space."

Pros: "seats are comfortable for being economy"
Cons: "food was not great as used to be and for a long flight not to have extra snacks options its a bit hard."

Pros: "From Seoul, the staff were all quick and prompt."
Cons: "JFK Front desk clerk( she seemed to be an indian or Latin Indian) were so rude and she looked to have no idea for her job. Sorry to grade for " Boarding, Mediocore" Nevertheless, the girl made us too confused. our departure to HK thru Seoul, she gave us boarding pass only to Seoul and my husband uses a cane due to leg pain. ( he can not bend his leg properly). I asked her to give a front seat. She simply ignored my request. At least, she should better say yes or no! However, other staffs helped us!"

Pros: "It truly set apart from the other airlines I used for my 15-day trip. It was by far the best airline from top to bottom"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "IN flight attendants are great, always willing to help and with a smile."
Cons: "I can see the airline growing ans some of the perks disappearing."
