The lounge is located a floor below departure level, there are a few windows but the blind have blocked all the views. Essentially, it feels like being underground. There are ample of seating.

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.

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.
