Skip ICN.

KE has a direct flight from ICN to CNX. If you can get on that go directly to CNX and stay for shabbos. If not, then just go to BKK. Either way, I wouldn't spend a day in ICN.

Would have to spend the day anyway in ICN. The flight from ICN to CNX leaves at 6:45pm. Still might be a good option over going to BKK.

Seeing the DMZ is just not worth it? I meant unless I don't have anything else to cover you wouldn't recommend it?

If that's the case I would try to skip KE all together. It does not sound that their hard/soft product is amazing compared to CX/EK/EY/OZ so I would try to route with these carriers instead... Am I off about KE?

KE a380 supposedly pretty good, if you can get on that direct flight to CNX later on, might make a decent day trip to ICN.

Just saw that, if thats the case I might just skip KE altogether... How would a vacation from Thu-Sun morning in CNX be? A bit too short?

4 nights in CNX doesn't sound bad at all. Provided you have a long Friday.

KE is amazing. With that said, it really depends on what's available and you mileage balances.

I would try for CX. If you really want to maximize on the products. Try to route through SFO on their 747 with AA F.

Again, of course they are good. Their J products beets UA F anytime.. But compare to CX/EK I would rather go with CX/EK (pending availability..) if you guys say I should skip ICN.

Not to short at all.

It's perfect. You will have 2 days to do activities.

Thanks. So if thats the case I might stick with KE and do the DMZ tour and off to CNX.

If only my plans/itin is not going to change another 55 times until the final day....  :o I am starting to think about routing via Europe if LH F on the 744 will have availability..... and continue with LH F A380... to ICN so I am Wednesday morning in ICN and I get to check out have both LH F products, and take KE J at night ICN-CNX.

KE J a330 vs KE F a380, incomparable!

Who said they are?

But I prefer LH F on 744/A380 rather than KE F.

Better to do CX + HKG. If you're doing HKG just stay there for shabbos. One day is not enough time for HKG.
I can't do HKG for Shabbos because I need a flight Sun morning to MLE. The only places that offer morning flights to MLE is SIN and BKK, hence why I will be in one of these 2 places for Shabbos.

Now, I will be arriving in Asia Wed morning, and I only have to be in CNX Thu morning, so I have one day in Asia to fill in. Its one day! Its either ICN or HKG, Im thinking about ICN because thats a place where I can cover in 1 day VS HKG where Ill just waste my time if Ill be there some 12 hours. Or am I wrong?

Still undecided if I should do CNX or SIN from Thu-Sun. CNX sounds much more fun.

You won't be wasting your time if you only go to HKG for 12 hours, just there's a lot to see so don't think 12 hours is enough, but if that's all you can get you'll make it work.
