Cons: I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!

Pros: Boarding process was all over the place. No one listened to the instructions the crew gave them. No special meal as requested as a friend of mine is vegan and allergic to several items so luckily she brought her own food on board. Crew was ok, nothing special.

Cons: The in flight movies/tv was not working. The customs situation is crazy. I appreciate the thoroughness but at points it was overboard. Constant scanning of ticket from the security "TSA" to just scanning your bags 2 feet later.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in INR.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller

Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
