Just wondering if I can ask some advice?
I am going on a field trip to Hong Kong with my university in April (lucky me)! Anyway, we have ten days spare at the end so I plan to go and visit my friend in Korea, so I will be looking to fly Hong Kong to Incheon. I have looked at Korean Air website but its quite pricey - can you recommend any good websites where I might get a good deal or any airlines for that matter. Would like to fly CX as I think it would be nice! Out of CX and KE, which would you recommend?

Try Thai - they often have cheaper prices than CX or KE, but not as many flights. Also, you should look at Asiana, but again, I think Thai will be the cheapest.
Between CX or KE on economy for such a short trip (3.5 hours), I am not sure there would be much of a difference in experience. That being said, I do not know if CX has PTVs in econ on this route in economy (they do in business) - if someone else could confirm this point, then if I were you, I would choose CX because KE does not have PTVs (even in business).

I lived in HK for many years. The best way to get cheap fares is to book through travel agents, as they buy blocks of tickets. Travel Expert is a good choice with many offices, and there are others. If you want a number of an agent my wife used to fly to Korea (she often booked Asiana, although the it was a red-eye) then send me a message and I'll reply to you.
