Asiana or Thai Air for Economy flight LAX to ICN?

We are booking flights from LA to BKK through Seoul and have the option to take Asiana or Thai Airways. We've taken Thai air domestically but never internationally and we've never taken Asiana. Thoughts on which might be the better option, based on space, food and in-flight entertainment? Thanks!

I'd expect fairly similar experiences in coach on them.  The big difference for me would be if you preferred flying west during the day.  Thai has only an overnight flight westbound whereas Asiana has both a daylight and an overnight option.

We have flown both, and they are both superior to our domestic airlines.   The food in economy was more than adequate, the seats were average (normal space, normal design-i.e., they didn't shrink the leg space from what you would expect, like frontier does!).  You really can't go wrong with either one.  I would make the selection based on flight times and connection times at that point.

I've flown LAX to BKK on Thai Airways and it's the best airline I've ever flown. There's SO much leg room I can straighten my legs (I'm almost 5'7). The food is delicious and the service is incredible.

I agree with most of the posters, although having flown both multiple times, I'd lean slightly toward Thai, since I think the food and service are always top quality, whereas Asiana is slightly less, especially service-wise (and I am a Korean-speaker)!

To me, both were equitable. One difference are the seats themselves. Reading, it appears that TG has a seat that is 18" wide with a 31-32" pitch, while OZ is "17.2 wide but 33-34" pitch.
