Didn't the KE
flight used to go ICN
and then stop by at DFW
on the return? Also, seems like the departure to ICN
was very late night... around midnight?
With the midday departure now, the connections from ICN
to Southeast Asia in particular have certainly improved! Would really like to try their service from DFW
, but being a mileage junkie I depend on the trans-Pacific trips to keep my status up on another carrier. But I sure enjoy seeing the KE
747 or 777 fly overhead on approach southbound.
It's interesting how DFW
struggled for a while to support a JAL 747 and AA
777, and when JAL dropped their service AA
put an additional 777 on 3-4 days per week. The second flight is now daily and AA
is adding a daily KIX
has 3 flights to ICN
, and often read in local papers of rumors of another Asian carrier or two considering service to the area.
And the amount of cargo flights to/from Asia has certainly grown: Singapore, Korean, China Airlines, China Cargo, EVA.
I just think back to the days when you could not get to anywhere in Asia without stopping on the West Coast!
