We took off from Runway 07R and flight time is just below 3 hours.
There are a total of 5 passengers in First Class out of 10 seats.
Luckily I have no neighbor in row 1 so I enjoyed the entire row at the pointy front of the plane.

Flight map between Hong Kong and Korea
It was a very short 3 hours flight with a large meal. Korean Air is known to have one of the classiest and stylish uniform in the industry. I couldn’t miss the chance to have a photo with the lovely crew.
Apparently, Korean Air is very strict on the staff appearances and it is not easy to have picture taken with crew due to company policy!
I thank the nice crew for an awesome flight. A male Korean Air member recognized my face and told the purser about me. It was a short but extremely pleasant flight. I enjoyed every minute onboard Korean Air.
