First Time To Japan Part III: OZ NRT-ICN In C

This is the PART III of the report, NRT - ICN on OZ's Business. The reason for this sector is solely because of the later sector - PEK-NRT on Iran Air's 747SP.

In the beginning, I hoped to do ANA NRT/HND - PEK directly by using Qmiles, but there was no availability on those flights, so I go via ICN by using OZ, an airline which I never used before.

To make the trip less stressful, I chose to stayed at Hilton Hotel near NRT airport
Refurbish is needed in my opinion, I may choose Holiday Inn next time

Check-in area for Business Class

After the immigration, saw this 77W just arrived from IST

Still have 2 hours to spend, do some lounge visit
ANA Lounge

Noodles bar, the noodles quality was good!

Strawberry Ice-Cream on demand

787 model at the entrance area

United Red Carpet Lounge

The declaration was better than ANA's lounge, but the food offerings were.......unsatisfied

View from the lounge, KE's 777

Last row of Business Class

The seat was very comfortable, the seat width was enough for me!

Empty cabin

Safety Information Card

I like water in the morning

Cabin again, the loading today was 7/28

Very good seating pitch for regional flight

Sleep position

Cabin from the front

Seat control, a bit dirty

IFE control

Meal time, seems everyone in the cabin chose Beef (Korean Style)

The way to eat from the menu: pick the vegetable leaf, place some sauces, beef and rice, wrap togather and eat!
The vegetable was really fresh

After the meal, toilet time. This the toilet after row 4

Arrived ICN in 2 hours, planned to visit this award winning airport for a long time already!

Arrival area

Stayed at Hyatt Regency Incheon Hotel for a night

The room was big, clean but a bit dark at night. The staff was warm and helpful.
Although it is my first time to stay at Hyatt (Golden Passport member), a bottle of red wine and fruit plate was waiting in the room with complimentary internet connection

Still have time, Airport hopping to Seoul Gimpo Airport
Express Train station at ICN

Inside the express train, made by ROTEM in Korea

Seat pitch

Gimpo Airport Station

International Terminal, it is a shopping mall with cinema complex, interesting!

Domestic Terminal, 10 minutes walk from International Terminal
It was about 10 o'clock at night, so the deprture area was closed already

This is the end of PART III, PART IV will be available soon

Nice report with nice pictures!

OZ flies their 777s mostly on long-haul flights and don't have a special configuration for short-haul on them.

ICN is a fantastic airport but I prefer HKG )

Nice train from ICN to GMP; does it go all the way into downtown Seoul ? The Airrport Express in HKG looks nicer....


Need a Boeing 777 Firing Order....Further to fly....LX and LH 777s

Great photos!

So the menu explained how to eat the meal, by using the lettuce as a wrap? If so, what was the rice for?

Thanks again for sharing!

I prefer HKG more too! But I think HKG have to improve, otherwise SIN would be better after the refurbishment of their Terminal 1 and 2

The train will go to downtown from this December, this will make ICN more convenience to access. I agree the Airport Express in HKG is nicer, but with tight seating pitch.

There were some small words on the menu explaining how to eat the meal. The rice also wrap inside the lettuce, together with the beef.
