Add to that, a better aircraft too that can carry more passengers! The last time CSA operated a long-haul flight, it operated with an A310-300, true? This time, it has an A330-300 that can make long-haul flights more efficient.

Looks like Air India will start operating the Dreamliner (B787) on its Delhi-Hong Kong-Seoul route starting 25 June 2013. The airline will gradually introduce B787 service on this route as a result of its routine schedule update on 7 June 2013. Planned B787 operation remains subject to change.

Details and schedule:

Delhi - Hong Kong - Seoul:
Planned B787 service tentatively scheduled from 25 June 2013, with twice weekly operation until 17 July 2013, and on all 4 weekly flights from 15 August 2013.

Another 777-200 route disappears. Air India is rumored to be trying to phase out or get rid of them.

There are still a lot of cities operated with a 772 from ICN. It's just that other airlines are evolving to operate better aircraft over time… remember that KE and OZ together operate a lot of 772s and 773s (plus 77Ws).

Ethiopian to Fly to Seoul with first African 787 Dreamliner - 10 June, 2013

Ethiopian Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Africa, is pleased to announce that it will become the first African carrier to operate scheduled flights to Seoul, the Republic of South Korea effective 18 June 2013 using the B787 Dreamliner.

The B787 is the most technologically advanced commercial aircraft offering unparalleled on-board comfort to passengers with high ceiling, the biggest windows in the sky, greatly reduced noise, unique lighting system and higher level of humidity.

Ethiopian will fly four weekly services to Incheon International Airport in Seoul and its inaugural flight will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Ethiopia and South Korea.

Various ministers, ambassadors, high level officials, members of the business community and an Ethiopian cultural troupe will be on-board the inaugural flight. Joint high profile events such as government, business, trade, tourism, cultural and academic forums highlighting the great potential of the relations between the two countries are scheduled to take place in Seoul from 19 to 21 June 2013.

It seems that Royal Air Maroc will come until end of 2014.

Waiting for our 787 Dreamliner (2nd generation not the 1st).

Wait what?

Royal Air Maroc? Unexpected. But I hope it happens. Might not happen, like Alitalia was rumored to fly to Seoul, but I am hopeful.

Incheon International Airport (ICN) in South Korea has broken ground on the $2.5bn Terminal 2 that will effectively double the size of the airport (source).Design firm Gensler, in collaboration with Heerim-Mooyoung-Gensler-Yungdo Consortium, have provided the designs that will be constructed in two phases.

The masterplan of the Seoul-Incheon International Airport goes from two main terminals and four satellite concourse to one main terminal, one satellite concourse, and one fantastic main super-terminal.

Info about the "fantastic main super-terminal": Floor area is 7,400,000 sq ft (687,000 sq m), 72 gates total, Possible number of passengers per annum: 50 to 60 million. Construction cost: US$2.5 billion. The project also comes with a second air traffic control tower, a train station, some parking facilities, and an airside Intra Rapid Transit. The new "super-terminal" also comprises the latest sustainable technologies and indoor green space with natural daylight, waterfalls, and koi ponds and streams, along with lifestyle centres and boutique shopping.

The "fantastic main super-terminal" is part of the third phase construction project costing US$4.5 billion, which also includes investment in building traffic network and a second transportation centre. (There were initially supposed to be four phases, but apparently it was cut to just three. Correct me if I'm wrong about this.)

Some sort of Emergency for AA flight on Oct. 27, 2013
After taxiing onto the taxi way, only couple of the fire trucks followed the aircraft to its gate.

Great pictures.
It is nice to see the construction in the AA pictures.
That would have been cool to EK, KE, and LH's A380s all in one shot.

I still tend to think that Korean Air's livery is easily the most distinctive of any major airline, and the prettiest.
