In 1962, Korean Air was established by order of the government.

In 1998-2000, the economic situation in South Korea left much to be desired and this, of course, is reflected in the activities of the airline. Only by the middle of 2000 the company's work began to improve. By 2007, the company had more than 16 thousand employees. At this time, the main competitor of Korean Air was the railway transportation system. To get rid of a competitor, Korean Air opens a low-cost subsidiary.

Airlines of the World and Russian ...

Good afternoon!

I bought a ticket to Seoul -Fidzhi.
Tell, please, Can I carry quadrocopter?

Daughter bought a ticket to Seoul-Taipei with his credit card, the name of my daughter and the same. And today, Korean Air refused my daughter's flight. Flight KE693 Ostovskaia Mariia. To fly Masha was forced again to buy the same ticket with your bank card. She even places check-preserved. Shame, Shame, Shame Korean Air !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They work in Russia, and our Civil Code and the Law on Protection of Consumer Rights is not revered !!!!!

One of the best airlines that fly: chairs, food, service. Most likely, you just made a mistake when booking.

The positive impression left after the flight that shaking during takeoff and landing is almost not felt. Of course, there were some moments, but for their exclusion of other unpleasant incidents for all the time the flight is no longer there, so that the level of training pilots to assess the fine.

Very friendly staff and a competent representative explained everything correctly so that in the future I have absolutely no question about the flights.

The best company in the world! He flew to London with absolutely no delay. But back foolishly bought a ticket from another company in which flight delayed!

Of course I can not say that the economy class differs significantly from economy classes in other companies, but due to the fact that the chair made entirely uncomfortable impossible to relax during the flight! I liked the fact that almost immediately after the departure of all offered refreshments. No obscenities in its own address on the part of employees, I have not heard. The whole flight even exceeded my expectations. Well done!

8.01.2015 flew in the direction of The Vladivostok-Khabarovsk. Apart from the fact that the ticket cost in 4200, but for a mistake at the time of registration surcharges 2500, the whole flight was normal. Without delay. Flight time indicated 1 25 hours minutes and flew just over an hour. Take-off and landing as the passed unnoticed. On the plane were given tea and a sandwich. The flight itself was calm and easy. In the near future planned trip to Krasnodar, so I give preference to Transaero, as they have a comfortable departure time, while waiting for transplantation is minimal, and the prices are much lower.
