Hah.. You forgot my join date  :P

Honestly, I did go through that TR a few weeks ago when I started thinking about visiting ICN but I missed/forgot the meals part.

How do you rate KE F A380?

Just finished reading that TR. Awesome!

I seee you didn't do the DMZ zone, do you think its a waste of time? Should I rather go with CX (pending F availability....) and do HKG for the day?

As of now im bookedd on KE JFK-ICN-CNX and I have a full day stopover in ICN should I rather do JFK-HKG-CNX and do full day stopover in HKG?

Why not stay in HKG over night? Looking to get everything on the same ticket?

Better to do CX + HKG. If you're doing HKG just stay there for shabbos. One day is not enough time for HKG.

how long from the airport to the DMZ zone?

Also, does anyone know which KSML KE serves ex-ICN?

Not sure, maybe about an hour or so. You can't go up to the dmz by yourself though, you have to take a tour that leaves from Seoul city center.

Korridor. You can read my trip report on Korea, search for "ZCN's TR" in the trip reports section.

Don't see the TR in the master thread, add it there.

I'm looking for award flights on J, or F to Israel for sukkos time, ( traveling with infant, so trying to avoid extra fees). I found a flight on ke, Jfk-icn-Tlv. Now I need some convincing from the DDF family, that I'm not crazy for traveling an extra 10 hours to fly f, and that it's worth it to do it for South Korea touring... ( when I've mentioned this idea to friends, and family they all think I'm nuts, but they don't play the mileage game. )
Life is as good as you make it...

If my stopover is a day and a half and I want to see as much as possible, which is the better location to stay at? Hyatt in ICN or Hyatt in Seoul?

Any pre-arrival visa requirements for S. Korea?
