Actually there is. Hartsfield-Jackson in ATL (over 95 million last year), and even in East Asia Beijing Capitol International handled over 80 million last year. It's on its way to overtaking ATL as the busiest airport in passenger traffic.

I had no idea Incheon had an ice skating rink (among other things) in the airport.

In terms of size its much bigger and busier, but its a garbage, third rate airport.

Only DECENT airport in the US is probably Denver. Maybe Seattle.

Does Ethiopian Airlines have any planes that can fly directly to Seoul? I imagine even if they did they wouldnt,

My best guesses would either be the B777-200LR or the B787. However, ET wants to continue operating to Hong Kong from Addis Ababa daily, and the new services to Seoul and Manila are just basically continuous journeys—both flights will have like an hour's worth of stopover in Hong Kong to disembark passengers, and there is no local traffic rights provided on either the Hong Kong-Seoul or Hong Kong-Manila legs—which, in turn, would translate to basically a long flight from Addis Ababa to South Korea and the Philippines.

I'm glad they're at least getting the route started considering no African carrier even flies to Incheon despite the huge growth in traffic they've seen between Africa & Asia.

KQ has plans to fly to NAIA and Incheon as well, so at least there will be two instead of none eventually.

Of course its not the best in quality compared to Incheon. I just meant in terms of passenger traffic.

And yes Denver is the best airport on the U.S., IMO.

Korean Air's Super Jumbo Jets to Begin Atlanta Flights on Aug. 2

Korean Air will begin flying its A380 super jumbo jets between Atlanta and Seoul, Korea, on Aug. 2, Chaney Park, the airline’s regional manager, told Global Atlanta Jan. 31.

The airline had planned to start the flights as early as this month.

"The launch was delayed because of fleet utilization. Launching has to be at the right time and since Korean Air is receiving more A380s, it can now allocate one for Atlanta," said Penny Pfaelzer, a spokeswoman.

Mr. Park said that the super jumbos are to replace the Boeing 747 and 777 jets used on flights between Seoul’s Incheon International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The 14-hour flights are to leave Atlanta at 1:10 p.m. and arrive in Seoul at 4:55 p.m. in keeping with current schedules, and the flights from Seoul to Atlanta leave at 10:30 a.m. and arrive at Hartsfield at 11:30 a.m.

Due to the A380's size, Hartsfield-Jackson has had to make gate modifications to serve the double-decker jet on Concourse E and widen taxiways and runways. Opened last May, the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, also known as Concourse F, is unable to accommodate the jets. Korean Air is the first airline to fly A380s into Atlanta.

Mr. Park said that Korean Air’s traffic between Atlanta and Seoul has been growing at 10 percent a year and that the airline has received six of the 10 A380s it has ordered. It already flies A380s to Los Angeles and New York in the United States, as well as to Hong Kong and Frankfurt, Germany.

Currently Korean Air has 10 flights a week between Atlanta and Seoul with a daily flight and the additional flights on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Mr. Park said that as of now there were no plans to change the number of flights.

SIA opens new SilverKris lounge at Seoul's Incheon airport

Singapore Airlines (SIA) passengers at South Korea's Incheon airport now have their own lounge where they can relax, have a bite or catch up on work while waiting for their flights.

Before the opening of the new SilverKris facility, SIA travellers were using a shared lounge. SIA now has 15 SilverKris lounges around the world, the airline said on Tuesday.

The airline's general manager in Korea, Mr Sia Nam Kung said: "The new lounge, together with our four daily Seoul flights, demonstrates our commitment to the important South Korean market."

Separately, the carrier also announced in August last year that it would invest $20 million over the next five years to upgrade and improve its passenger lounges.

That's the Transport Centre for the AREX trains which provides connections to the Incheon Subway and Seoul Metropolitan Subway. I may be wrong but it could just be a design element.

Perhaps my best guess would be an observation deck (post-security)… it looks really unique to be anything else (unless it is an airport control tower).
