Asiana Airlines is one of my favorite airlines when it comes to flying in first class. I always get the same impeccable service and served excellent food whenever I fly with them and of course, I am a fan of their amenity kits containing Bulgari products as well as their very nice pajamas and slippers. As I am writing this blog, Asiana hasn't started yet flying their first Airbus A380 on this route (ICN-LAX) although it looks like they will be starting soon by the end of August. Well, I guess I am just one of those wishing to test their first class on the superjumbo in the future.
This review would concentrate mainly on the food and service. You can find more pictures of the cabin, seat, amenity kits, etc. on my previous trips here and here.

The cabin has a total of 10 seats in first class, 7 of which were occupied that day.
The other choices were:
Roasted Wagyu Hanging Tender Steak with Cream Pepper Sauce
Deep fried Pork Loin with Chinese Spicy Sauce and Egg Fried Rice
I really have to give credit to Asiana Airlines for the excellent food. Everything from the starters to the dessert tasted great. The fact the the service was very professional and everything was served the way it was meant to be (no rush) made it even better 👍
With seats that turn into a fully flat bed, I was able to get a good amount of sleep and about two hours before landing, breakfast was served.

Arrival at Los Angeles Airport
We arrived at our gate (gate 152 Tom Bradley Terminal) about 15 minutes late so I was a bit worried since I had a connecting flight to Vancouver leaving from Terminal 2. I hurried my way to the immigration control and luckily, got called by the next available immigration officer. I had about 25 minutes before boarding so I didn't waste anytime and went straight to the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge in Terminal 2.
So it was my fourth time flying on Asiana Airlines in first class and just like the first three flights, this was excellent with impeccable service, great food and really nice flight attendants willing to do anything to make your flight memorable 👍 I wished I was flying on their Airbus A380 though. Well, I guess that would be my next goal. To the flight attendants of Asiana Airlines on this flight, "Kamsahamnida!"
