Which cabin are you in? Back of the bus, or you up front (or on top?)

That's cool!
But your left from JFK, now over the pacific, and you still have 14 hours to go????
Flight 81 leaves from INC to JFK, then that makes more sense.
Which way are you going????  Smile

Agreed! I've been on that flight too many times to count. He's only 5 hours into the flight so hasn't left North America. While the service is very good, they never ever change the menu! I get tired of bimibap (sp) and bulgogi....

Didn't know that they've installed connexion service thought - very cool.

i bought the ticket on delta, code share with KE. unbelievable flight. almost 5 hours into the flight, very smooth so far. cabin lights were just dimmed. all you can see out the window is ice and white, lots of white. I believe we are at 30,000 feet though the AVOD is hard to figure out in english. all seats in coach have AVOD and wireless internet. very impressed with service and entertainment. Oh, I'm plat with Delta and got access to Korean lounge with coach ticket, that was a surprise. I guess elite plus gets access to all lounges. Food was beef with potatoes and snacks are cheese and ham sandwiches. wish you could all be here, beer is cold and Kuala lumpur is only 15 hours away with connection. This is by far the coolest thing!!

Interesting to note, no power port needed, you simply plug right into the seat. we are about to cross the international date line

If you haven't been to Incheon Airport, it's pretty awesome. Puts our old JFK to shame! Enjoy Seoul and don't hang around Itaewon too much! LOL

i have a tight connection in seoul to KUL but ICN is a great airport, been there once before. Interesting to note, no power port needed is a nice surprise, though after I walked around the plane a few times, other then 1st class and biz class, it seems I'm the only one on the internet, also, you can launch and use AOL if you choose, pretty cool

Well, KUL is no slouch either! Man, you're getting around! The national mosque and the Petronas Towers are definite must sees as well as the markets. KL is an amazing place. If you have time to take a trip to see the bat caves north of the city, their pretty interesting, but the monkeys will drive you nuts. I've only been to KL and Penang. Want to go to Langkawi as some point. Be safe....

I have the impression that this is a very good deal. Anyone able to compare that with rates on other airlines?

BTW, enjoy the rest of your flight. Gotta love KE and their beautiful cabin crew  bouncy

actually, that is the rate being charged by Boeing, not the individual airline. The airlines that have internet service all charge the same rate and Boeing takes your money.

I wasn't aware of that. That's interesting and worth the money on a longhaul I think.
