|curry chicken meal... banchan and salad served first|
prestige (business) class in Korean Air to US from Korea is nice because you get to relax for the long 13~14 hour flight.
An honest review of them... would be that, they have the prettiest flight attendants(yes they do!), but their quality is not consistent (in service/food).
One time their steak was rubbery. I would never order steak again.
Another time, I got a "trainee" attendant that made constant mistakes... not getting my food on time and her service was not as professional.
The last time I flew with them, they had "chicken curry meal" that came with banchan & salad (cheese/tomato) served first. The chicken curry was okay (nothing to write about), which came with a side soup (and I think it was seaweed soup). I don't remember it well, but enough to remember how strange it was and it must be for the non-Koreans to have curry meal with seaweed soup. Strange combo (esp with the salad!)
I also do not like how they bow and say welcome/goodbye to each passengers personally (individually). It makes me feel uncomfortable. I would rather be left alone than have 2 attendants bow and put on that forced smile (awkward!). And they can never seem to figure out whether to speak Korean or English to me. It's been 50/50 ^^
However, their seats aren't bad at all. You have to get used to them -because it's not like a real bed, but a flat chair. I don't really pass out or sleep as long as people would assume. I use that time to just mediate and to try stay in the time zone I am going to. It's helped with jet lag so far. Esp with almost half a day of difference when to US - Korea.
Until next flight.. we'll see if they get better food. BUT their cookies were pretty good last time!! I'll give them that :)
