Nice trip report, thanks for posting. London City and a vintage plane make all the more interesting. Looking at the cabin photos, it looks like it was 3 x 3 seating after all even though the seat map was 2 x 3, correct? I thought all 146s were 2 x 3 after the original 3 x 3 was too tight. Thank you...Jump to post
It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a trip report here so thank you for this interesting one on MIAT. I hope to visit Korea some day. Great to see an old Ryanair 737 still plugging away - I flew on her sisterships CSV & CSM many moons ago. All the best and thank you again for uploading - i...Jump to post
Thanks for writing up - pretty exotic type really. I have never flown on a 146 / Avro RJ and the chances of doing so now seem alot less - but after reading this you just reminded me to look for options. Thank you very much for reading! Off the top of my head there are scheduled BAe 146/Avro RJ oper...Jump to post
That said I'd take a 4-engined regional jet over an Embraer any day - just a shame it isn't really possible in Europe anymore. Nearly possible and maybe something for a more exotic TR! ARMENIA AIRWAYS is flying from EVN to IKA with the BAe146... :thumbsup: http://armeniaairways.am/ https://www.flig...Jump to post
A nice read. Never managed to get on a 4 engine small jet (and sadly doubt I will) so my travels will have to be through these kind of reports. Thanks Thank you for reading - sad to see these types of aircraft go, only five years or so ago there used to plenty flying about in Europe but they now se...Jump to post
What a nice "blast from the past" - WDL and their BAe146 fleet no longer exists. The new abbreviation and ICAO-code is GER for German Airways, callsign German Eagle. Also good news for D-AMGL, as a new career as water bomber for Neptune Aviation might be on the horizon! Anyways, looking f...Jump to post
As always, this trip report can also be read with a few more photos on my blog Background Following several weeks of planning, on a typically rainy early spring day in London, I finally settled on some form of itinerary for my long stopover in Uzbekistan as part of my June 2019 trip to Korea. Whilst...Jump to post

Interesting trip report and pictures. A few years ago I traveled throughout Southeast Asia with some of my friends and we were actually going to include Mongolia in the trip (would've taken a red-eye MIAT 767 flight from BKK) but in the end we just couldn't fit it in. It seems like an interesting p...Jump to post
Really enjoyed seeing your report and photos. MIAT looks like an interesting airline and definitely beautiful photos along the route.

You can find the first part of the journey from Korea to Mongolia on a MIAT Boeing 737-800 here . Feel free to read this post on my blog for more photos.

Thanks for the trip report - nice to read something different, MIAT doesnt appear here too much. Peaked my interest in Busan too! Thank you for reading! If my searching is correct the last time a MIAT report appeared in this forum was back in 2014, so not the most reviewed airline on here. I would ...Jump to post
What a great TR. I flew with MIAT 2 months earlier, ICN-ULN-TXL. It was the last part of a round the world trip, which only happened because while in Peru it was cheaper to fly to ICN than back home direct to Europe, and from ICN, MIAT was the cheapest and quirkiest option available. I got the olde...Jump to post

Nice TR! Exotic carrier, lots of pix, what's not to like? Was the plov spicy? It looks similar to the Indian/Middle Eastern biryani.

Background Nestled on Korea’s south eastern coastline, the nation’s second largest city, Busan, is separated from the capital by a little over two hundred miles (323 kilometres) of mostly mountainous terrain.

How many crew were onboard? Usually a 145 just has one flight attendant and it sounds like you had at least two onboard! We fly the 145s in and out of MHK all the time. Its so interesting to see them as a flagship service instead of relegated to regional feed for a mainline carrier. Thank you for t...Jump to post

There's been a reasonable amount of interest in LCC operations from Korea to Europe recently, and I reckon, if such services ever commenced then ICN-STN operated by a Jin Air 777 would seem like a reasonable option.

Background On a warm and sunny evening in final days of Spring, I found myself hunched over a desk with a pile of documents relating to the late Korean director Shin Sang-ok and more specifically his classic 1961 film ‘The Houseguest and My Mother’ which I had been tasked with translating into Engli...Jump to post

That sounds most unpleasant. I would have insisted that the KE staff in GMP rebook me after the flight was initially delayed by 90 minutes.

The airline also operated its first charter flights to Tbilisi in May. On a side note, if at all possible, I reckon KE could pull off a scheduled ICN-MAN-DUB-ICN with one of their Airbus A330-200s.

Hi there, was waiting for the conclusion to your TR's! Thank you.

I reckon it'll be mostly used on their domestic Gimpo/Jeju to Busan/Daegu/Jinju/Pohang/Ulsan/Yeosu flights at first.
