Yes, I like ICN quite a lot. The design is simple yet elegant. However, I'm not a big fan of satellite terminal designs. I'm very much still engrained in the 1-terminal concept.

Breakfast at the Airport

With the morning departure, I opted for breakfast at the Business Class lounge. While I originally intended to visit The Cabin, Cathay's new airport lounge, in the end I wandered into The Wing. It was already quite busy so early in the morning.















While the chairs were comfortable, they were low and the lounge was quite open throughout, giving little privacy. This contrasts to the more individualistic shell seats in The Cabin.









With the high passenger flow comes a price - a dirty bathroom. However, it was an individual room with toilet and wash basin so there is more privacy.





The funkiest area was the luggage storage racks, which resembled more like a designer shop than a store room.



Today's flight would be operated by an older plane with the regional Business Class. Despite having no lie-flat seats, they had my favourite drink - Cathay Delight.













We took off towards the west, which meant my A window seat would be quite useless today. Strangely, there was a huge slick in the water that seemed to massive to be an unreported oil spill. Perhaps it was natural?





















After the light snack, lunch was served. I filled up a bit too much in the lounge, so in the end had to miss the main course. In retrospect, I should've taken it easy on the lounge food since it wasn't great anyway, and the in-flight meals would have been far better.







































Although the chairs can only recline so much, I actually prefer these normal-facing seats as they appear to be wider than the newer herringbone type.







It was a very foggy day in Seoul. I could barely see the ground until almost touch-down.











The crew was very friendly and they all had great smiles. Despite the older seat, it wasn't such a big deal given the short flight. However, the satellite terminal at Incheon needs a more frequent train connection. Trains only come every 5 minutes.

KE flies it regularly to HK. CX didn't order any A380's.

The food looks good on the Korean Air flight. I was wondering why there were no in flight pictures out the window but it was at night.
