Finding an Indian meal on Korean Air is indeed a good sign!
I was travelling via Korean Air from Hong Kong to Korea and although it was a short flight (slightly over 3 hours), everyone on the flight was served a meal. I was asked if I would like fish or chicken in my meal and I said neither, as I had already opted for a Hindu Vegetarian Meal while booking my flight. The crew was absolutely unaware about my request (a massive miscommunication between the booking site and Korean Air) and so I wasn’t served a meal on that flight. However, they made a note of my request and did confirm to arrange a meal on the next flight that I would be taking from Korea to Los Angeles.
So yes, finding an Indian meal on Korean Air felt really good. And I’m actually glad that the crew on the first flight decided to help me out here; this second flight from Korea to Los Angeles was almost 14 hours and there’s no way I could have made it without vegetarian food. So a big shout out to the staff of Korean Air for this.
Coming to the meal itself, I think it was one of the most non-greasy meals I’ve had on a flight. Airplane food isn’t the best tasting and is usually very oily. This meal was actually pretty good in that sense. You can watch this video of all the items I had while I was on the Korean Air Flight.

So if you are an Indian vegetarian, and travelling by Korean Air, my advise would be to choose Hindu Vegetarian Meal while booking your flight. And also a day prior to flying just call the helpline and check if they have received your meal preference. It’s extra work, but at least it ensures you have a proper meal while flying. In terms of hospitality and service, I hold the Korean Air staff in very high regard and they honestly go out of their way to ensure you have a comfortable flight.
Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for my next post.
