  • If I could cash for the experience, I would not.  The food and service were excellent, but part of the draw of premium cabin is to sleep on long haul and I could not.  For whatever reason, Asiana keeps the cabin quite warm and while I appreciated being able to lie flat, I didn’t find the bed mode comfortable.

We had already eaten and drank much too much prior to boarding. Crew was friendly and proactive yet efficient which is appreciated on a late night flight. Attendants offered snacks and service throughout the flight. The cabin ran a bit warm which made it difficult to sleep well. Entertainment system had a brilliant screen and solid range of new films.
