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

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

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

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

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....

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.
