My first time to fly Jin Air for my trip from Seoul to Bangkok round trip. Reasonable fare and didn't have high expectations. Flight attendants were very hospitable and attentive to passenger needs. Cabin was clean and all that - not much different from other airlines. In-flight meals were obviously not as good, and didn't finish them... Maybe for Jin...

We took a different carrier on our way to Okinawa and this return flight was much more comfortable. Not to mention they have us water and snacks, which my children were thrilled about.

Yes, it is one of LCC. You'd better expect efficiency than comfort. but, when considering the price, the seat was uncomfortable, crews are quite not helpful in many ways. I cannot say they are competent when thinking of many LCCs these days.

The website is a little different, so I had hesitated, but the price couldn’t be beat, so I crossed my fingers and purchased my flight with Jin Air. I’m glad I did! The personnel was courteous and all I encountered spoke perfectly good English. If you’re looking for business or first class seats then this is not the airline for...

I had never travelled with this airline. So I booked a return between Seoul and Tokyo for a work trip. I'm not a regular traveller with budget airlines so my expectations were low. But the whole experience was not bad at all. For a budget airline they gave you a small snack box which was a nice touch. The crew...

Having previously flown Jin Air on a number of routes from Busan, Korea to Guam, Okinawa and Osaka, they were my first choice when I was looking for a likely destination for a few days away, at a good price. This time I selected the 30-minute hop to Kitakyushu in Japan; was totally satisfied with all aspects of the (albeit...

I caught a Osaka tour for only 100 dollars.It was so good that I could spend the rest of the money to enjoy my trip in Osaka.Economy seats don't seem to be a problem when the distance of flight is short.
