After the meal service ended the flight attendants slowly lowered the lights and then everyone started to fall asleep. As did i for the seats were sOOOOO comfortable.

the flight took about 9 hours and 40 min but i wished for the first time for the flight to be longer because everything was done with the best service. Also the flight was not full so i had the seat next to me empty. Hoped u liked my trip report but since i have so many pics of the seat it would be a shame not to show u because there are none on airliners.net so here are more pics of the seat hope u like them....

Awesome trip report and pics.
I didn't think of Korean Air very highly but after looking at this I would have to reconsider

Great Trip Report! I really enjoyed it. it would be nice if you could maybe get some pics out the window next time and maybe even the lounge. im sure it would have been impressive, the lounge at Incheon. Work on the lighting some more. but overall, GREAT WORK! there are rarely any trip reports about the northern asian airlines and hope you could come up with some more soon! I look forwards to reading some more of your TRs soon.

Nice trip report. It is good to hear about high quality service from Korean Air. The Korean airlines definitely lagged behind for a while in having quality products in business class. It is good to see them catch up even though the highest quality Asian airlines are going even further. I think overall even UA has had better seat comfort in business class than Korean, and with both having new seats, UA will still be ahead.

That order taking has got to be one of the best pictures on Airliners, the curve of her back and rump..... Commercial quality!

I think you have to recheck the rego: HL7434 is a B747-400F of KE, maybe it was HL7734 ( a B777-200ER ) ? If you tell me the date i can check that for you !

Glad to see I'm not the only one that noticed that! Totally agree. Both KE and OZ have attractive and charming FAs.

Totally agree with you. Even OZ's biz seats (while archaic) are still pretty comfortable. I haven't flown in the new KE seats pictured above but at first glance, they look a bit confining on the sides.

I couldn't help but notice that the bibimbop (the dinner main course in this TR) looks nearly identical to the Y-class bibimbop served on KE which comes in a plastic bowl. The Chinese-style cod looks appealing - did any of your seatmates order it? I don't think I've ordered anything other than bibimbop on any of the KE or OZ flights I've flown between ICN and the U.S.

Why is the guy wearing a mask to cover up his face when ordering? Was there a disease on the plane or something!?

You will find that a lot of people from the Far East wear masks on planes and even in the streets.They are scared from contacting viruses or colds.

Nice set of pictures there, thanks for posting them.

A little more detail in future reports would be good, ie departure times, load's etc.

Food presentation looks pretty decent, decent looking glasses too.

The seat looks ok, though the width looks concerning, perhaps it's not as tight as it looks.

Regards

Enjoyed the travel report.  Smile Interesting color scheme. I find the blue-green colour scheme a little reminiscent of hospitals. How new are these seats? They seem a bit "last generation" with angled lie-flat seats and non-widescreen IFE. Still, you had a good flight and sleep so that counts for more!

It's for your own safety. Do you know the amount of garlic used in their cooking (as said by someone who loves that cooking)?  Smile In Japan they also wear masks frequently and I felt guilty for sniffling away without one.
I like artificial banana essence!

At least on KE's website, the color looks quite soothing to my eye.... These are actually KE's newest business class seats (look like the same as Thai's business class seats, judging from a recent TR). KE does also have the larger, truly-flat 1st Class seats for long-haul routes.

Great report. Thanks for the excellent pictures, they really brought back some memories for me. Korean Air is a under rated airline, they are an amazing airline. Good to see some up dated shots of their seats on the 777. Look forward to more trip reports from you in the future.
