Just got back from a quick trip to Seoul. KE 744s each way. 14 hours 35 minutes going, 13 hours 30 minutes coming back. Coming back we hit some pretty bad turbulence over Japan, which is a common occurrence. Don't have time to give a full trip report but enjoy the pics!

Over Russia. We overshot the Korean peninsula and came in from the West to avoid North Korea, to answer Speedbird's question

Very nice, thanks for sharing. I like the 3D route map on the IFE. Why did they serve breakfast at 8:30pm?

The food looked pretty decent and plentiful. Leg room looked a bit cramped though. Thanks for sharing.

I'm thinking because just before landing at JFK at 8:30pm, it was 9:30am in Seoul, and they figured Koreans would feel like breakfast?

I got the "Western" choice. The alternate dinner choice was Korean Bibimbap with seaweed soup and the alternate breakfast was Korean porridge, I think.

Legroom was very tight, and both flights were full. Lots of Filipinos, Vietnamese, and Chinese connecting in Seoul to Manila, Ho Chi Minh, and Shanghai, respectively.

Thanks for looking!
