| Overall, Jin Air is a solid low cost carrier. I flew a roughly 5 hour route between Incheon and Vientiane, and the experience was generally positive. My only complaint is regarding seat comfort. The seats seem to be narrower than those on other airlines I have flown, and the pitch is nothing to brag about. One tip is that on the B737, do not take an aisle seat. There is some sort of metal box bolted underneath the seat in front of you, taking up a significant fraction of the space where your feet might go (if you stretch your legs out so that your feet go underneath the seat in front of you). This seems to be the case for all the aisle seats, and believe me, my feet were in a very uncomfortable position. Otherwise, I have only good things to say. The flight crew were friendly and helpful (although I didn't need anything unusual that would require great service anyway). Operations were smooth, and the staff at the gate did a good job. I was running late because of a delay in my connecting flight, and they checked me in right away with no worries. The food they served was solid. It was less than one would receive on a 5 hour flight from a flagship Asian carrier, but better than what you would hope for in North America and acceptable given the low cost. On the ICN-VTE leg, it was dinner time and they served a simple starchy rice with mixed vegetables-very tasty. On the way back it was breakfast hours and they served a basic combo of yogurt, fruit, and a roll. The meals come in a charming cardboard box designed with the Jin Air logo and colors. One remarkable thing about Jin Air is its concept-while an airline's brand won't affect your flight experience in the same way as seat size or staff friendliness, it plays a fundamental role in the mental experience you have while travelling. Many kudos to the flight attendant uniforms, with their minimalist style: jeans, a green top, and a hairpin in the shape of the Jin Air logo (a butterfly designed so that there is an image of a plane formed in the blank space between the wings).
