Korean Air Inflight Catering

I can't find a thread for posting inflight catering photos on the KE forum, so I thought I'd start one - mods please feel free to move this post if there is an existing thread I can't locate!

KE895
ICN-PVG
Economy Class
November 2023


This was my first (and so far only) experience of flying Korean Air, and for a short regional Y sector I thought this Korean style pork short rib was fine. Being mainly used to intra-European sectors when flying Y, I was particularly impressed with the metal cutlery, although I realise this is the norm amongst full service Asian carriers.

KE also used to also serve wine in Y in a real glass for Europe/US flights, before stopping since COVID. They claim it was difficult to safely manage such a quantity of glass.

Btw, great thread. Will try and contribute.

ICN to SIN in Prestige class
KE does steak filet very well surprisingly.
Not overcooked unlike other airlines.

Nice, I was looking for something like this too! I'll contribute as well when I take my flights in May.

Long shot here... Anyone pre-ordered kids meals? Really curious what they are like as I'll have a toddler with me. We'll be in prestige for our long haul flights from SEA to ICN.

pre-ordered kids meal for economy long haul (LAX to ICN) and it was worth it IMO.
the kids meals came out first before they started meal service for the rest of the cabin, and the extra time was helpful.
they also had bamboo wood utensils instead of the metal ones for regular meals, and more kid-targeted dessert and snacks (bananas during snack times, etc.).
the meal options for flights out of the US were generic (hot dog, spaghetti, etc.) and the options for flights out of ICN (e.g., bulgogi) seemed better.

not sure how it works for Prestige class however. traveled a couple years ago with a toddler in Prestige and don't remember if we preordered the toddler meal, I just remember my toddler getting the regular meal and feeling like it was semi ridiculous (the salmon appetizer, the cheese course, etc... I ended up eating double and my kid ended up just filling up later on the sandwich/pizza snacks lol).

Thanks for the input! I will definitely be ordering the kids meal for my toddler. I can't imagine them getting a full course and even wanting to eat any of it. Maybe just the rice from the bibimbop and dessert 😂 And I definitely would not want to double eat. I'll try to remember to take photos of the kids meal and amenities.​​​

Oh and if you don't mind me asking, how did your toddler do in prestige? Our flight back is via ICN>LAX on the a380 upper deck in the older sleepers vs Apex suites on our flight out from SEA.
