Emirates LHR-ICN Or Korean LAX-ICN?

Tue Oct 31, 2006 11:17 pm

Guys,
I need to fly return to Seoul in January for about a week, and have the option of either flying from LHR/LGW/CDG on the 22 Jan, or flying from PHX or LAX during the following week.
After checking various websites, and keeping in mind that i need a flexible ticket that allows date changes, i have come up with either £455 LHR-DXB-ICN on EK, €700 CDG-DXB-ICN on EK, or about US$1000 LAX-ICN on KE.
At the moment I am leaning towards EK, as i have enough skywards points to upgrade one sector, but KE would be a new airline for me!
What would u guys choose? and can anyone find a better fare????

Cheers,


I would definitely go with EK. Although their Y class isn't the best in the business, their service and professionalism is top notch. Korean... I wouldn't trust 'em too much. They've had a dodgy past when it comes to safety. I'm sure they're fine now - but I would definitely go with Emirates.
Cheers

Didn't they just win the award for the worlds best airline though? Also, I think their worst tragedy is disputable, if I am thinking of the correct event - when a B747 disappeared and crashed after straying into Soviet air space, many years ago?

Personally I would fly Korean, as it would be a new carrier for yourself Smile

I would go with Korean Air for they are one of the Best Here are some pics that i have taken that shows the New Korean Air Interior for economy!!!. They also have internet access in all classes and all flight to LAX. So I would go with Korean Air. Although they have had some bad accidents in the past they do everything in their power to brush it away.Anyways I have been flying Korean Air All my life and they have offered nothing But the BEST. They have come a long way and i promise that you will not be dissapointed with Korean Air. Their new AVOD sytem in all their classes are amazing!!!.Here are the Economy class pics!

EK all the way man. Can't match their IFE. And if you go first class, KE would be something to laugh about compared to EK.
