British Airways Selling Seats To Seoul!

Tue May 06, 2003 11:43 pm

British Airways are now able to sell LHR ICN . Flights are open for sale from the 10th May, but BA are currently only planning to operate this until the 18th May. The service will be reviewed weekly.

Ex LHR days of operation are 1.3.5.& 6
Ex ICN days of operation are 2,3,6, & 7

BA are only able to offer this Seoul service because to the SARS situation, PEK flights are operating through SEL for crewing purposes.

Also, forgot to mention, BA is also selling seats on BA27/28 to Bangkok (the flight that continues on to HKG). Again this is only released a week at a time.

That is an interesting development. Surprising how far ICN is, from downtown Seoul...almost like a Ryanair route.  Big grin

It would be nice to see a permanent BA presence in ICN, along with carriers such as LH, KLM and AF.

BA used to fly a service to Seoul but due to very low loads discontinued it. If this route was ever to prove itself more profitable then i am sure that BA will reinstate it. Maybe soon!

Well if Korean and Asiana can manage around 10 weekly flights to LHR all with the 744, I think BA could do it 5 weekly with the 772 as a stand alone flight.The South Korean economy is a monster(PPP is just under $20k per capita now)with growth still around 4% despite the shenanigans in the north.
