Hello ,

I had a chance of flying Asiana's 767 to Singapore last summer but I didn't choose it because of the more attractive CX's fare , but I'd like to know more about Asiana , how's their service? entertainment system? do they have PTVs for BC and FC? how's their food? and how's their aircraft interior and maintainance? are they better than Korean Air? I know that Asiana's far safer than Korean Air

I just spent a year in the military over in Korea, and I can assure you, that Asiana is not safer than Korean Air. As a matter of fact, neither airline has the best safety record, its just the KAL has been in the news most recently. If I am gonna fly, I would avoid both Korean airlines, after seeing first hand how the safety standards are in Korea.

I can't speak for Asiana, but having read Delta's report on Korean Air's operations and flight standards, I'd be loathe to fly with them. However, if you can still get a cheap fare with CX, you will be flying one of the safest - and best airlines - in the world. And they have a very good passenger entertainment system.

I can only go by second-hand info related to me several years ago, but a colleague of mine who flew both airlines at about the same time said he felt that Asiana's employees had a better attitude. Has that changed? I don't know.

As for safety, while Korean has been in the news with fatalities, remember that Asiana plowed a 747-400 wing through the tail of an IL-62. The pilot couldn't figure out why his plane would not move -- so he applied takeoff thrust ON A TAXIWAY. Makes you wonder about judgment and training.
