KOREAN AIRLINES Complaint - NO PLACE FOR VEGETARIANS IN KOREAN AIRLINE OR KOREAN AIRPORT
SEOUL -- If you are a vegetarian or Vegan and want to travel by Korean Airlines just beware.
They have no place for vegetarians and there is no vegetarian word in Korean lanaguage. Most of Air crew who speak little broken English do not understand what you really need.
If your special meal is by mistake not available, that case you may get Veg Salad with Fish or You may get some rice or noodles with some meat.
I have tried to explain them hard that give me some bread or fruits, or vegetables which they did not understand and kept offering me some fishy, meaty or doggy flavoured stuffs.
There was no one who could understand my starving situation in 13 hours of flying and 20 hours of starving. At last when i wrote a complaint on board just before landing, one crew came and offered me some fruits which they could have done before. i suffered acidity and other medical complication for starving 20 hours of flying and Seoul airport waiting.
Unfortunately even Seoul Airport do not carry anything vegetarian. In a response from Korean airport authority who responded as they do not understand what vegetarian means. Expecting a relevant reply from Korean customer service is distant dream.
I booked my meals as vegetarian while buying ticket from HK to Canada by Korean Airlines via seoul ,which they missed it.
Be careful if you are trying to travel expecting vegetarian food. This Airlines do not understand beyond beaten or smoked dog meat, monkey meat or snakes which is staple food of Korea.
