Korean Air named on Tripadvisor's Top 10 airlines
Korean Air has reached an impressive number 10 on Tripadvisor's newly released list of Top 10 airlines. As reported by one Tripadvisor user; " "We travelled from Chicago to Hong Kong with our toddler, and could not have been more pleased with the experience. Basic economy on KA is basically economy plus on other (especially US-based) airlines. The flight staff actually made me like the experience, rather than detract from it. I'll be flying KA whenever possible in the future." Korean Air's reputation continues to grow this way, as the list was compiled by taking into account the quantity and quality of airline reviews and ratings submitted over the last twelve months to TripAdvisor.
