And, to cap it off, had the cabin to ourselves again. I'm beginning to get paranoid...

All I can say is I was either just not as lucky as you are or I was so drunk after a 15 hour F flight on OZ that I simply didn't see what's happening around me (in which case I am more lucky than you).

Here's hoping for an equipment change and an empty cabin on my flight.

PH ICN

Exceptional hotel. If categories were not dictated by ADR, this could easily be a category 7.

Suites are warm, understated, modern, and beautiful.

Service was outstanding.

I'd almost go so far as to say it's worth making a stop in ICN to just stay here.

Anything kosher in ICN?
Or worth doing other than the DMZ?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Chabad will make fresh/hot food with advance reservations. No restaurant like in PEK. They do have a store though.

I feel ill-equipped to make the call, but I don't get the impression there's much more to do in ICN, unless you're into history, can eat the food, or like to do high end shopping.

Ain't no hotel worth going to without local activities worth doing.

If PH ICN, OZ F A380, and DMZ, aren't enough for you for a night in Seoul, that'd be your loss.

Looking forward to seeing the "all new"  Swiss F on the 773 in Jan 2016.

This new lounge, esp the suites, looks gorgeous. Can't wait for my next connection in HKG.
