Feb 12, 2020

Wish had more leg room in economy flight.

Feb 12, 2020

No tv screen built into the seat. Must be an older plane?!

Feb 1, 2020

My flight back from S. Korea seemed faster than getting there. While, the food was not as good as going to S.Korea, the service was much better. I found the staff to be friendly and attentive. I really enjoyed my flight back to the USA for those reasons.

Seats a bit close to seat in front. Seat cushions need improvement.
