Korean Air: Seoul here we come!

If you didn't read my previous post, it was acutally quite hilarious how I ended up taking a different flight from C. You can read about it here. Anyways, it was a red-eye flight and since I was pretty early there was not much of queue when checking in the luggage. It has been a while since I have taken a red-eye flight, but having the experience before I was more or less prepared (i.e. wipes, beauty water, bb cream etc…). At the time Korean Airlines had just moved to the new Terminal 4, I am really thankful that there were no major outages or teething issues when checking-in for the flight and luggage, as well as departure from Terminal 4 to Incheon Airport.

Almost starting the adventure

Being a red-eye flight which departs at 2230 at night, there was not much happening in the departure hall. Boarding for flight KE644 began at about 2200 and with so many Korean passengers waiting to board, it made me feel as I was in South Korea already.

It was the first time that I was taking Korean Airlines, and I have to say the uniform of the stewardesses were a pretty sight. Once seated, I noticed that the seats in economy were slightly larger than what I am usually used to but it’s all good. The legroom was quite ample too, so ample that the lady beside me was able to place a small stool to rest her feet! πŸ˜†

Pillow, blanket, headset and a little pleasant surprise, slippers~
Not sure if they usually handout slippers or only because they were promoting the Olympics. but it was nice touch.

The touchscreen entertainment system: it was totally well stocked with movies, Korea drama and much more.

There were no meal menu cards, the choices for dinner were announced by the flight stewardess when they passed the aisle. I’ve heard so much about the Korean Air Bibimbap, so obviously that was what I opted for when it was my turn and I did not regret my choice at all!  πŸ˜‹

Mix the seasoning according to your tastes and mix!

After a bit of snooze and watching movies, it was almost time to land. Prior to landing, the stewardess handed out the immigration card and for some odd reason I had the one in Korean. πŸ˜‚

Initially I had the Korean language card., but that was easily resolved and...

Arrived and ready to roll!

The flight arrived at Incheon Airport early in the morning at about 0600, and since C's flight was about 30 minutes later than mine, it was time to collect the luggage and slowly collect the pocket WiFi device which I had rented from Klook for only S$4 per day while I waited for her.

Overall, it was a smooth and easy flight: the service was on point and the food was quite yummy. The legroom and entertainment system further enhanced the experience. πŸ˜€
