2. Seats – Korean Air B777-300ER Economy Class, ICN-LAS

Seat configuration: 3-3-3

Seat A, B, and C – pretty similar to the previous flight SIN-ICN on A330. But B773-ER aircraft seems a little bit older.

Amenities given on this flight (11hrs flight): Inflight slippers, toothbrush set

Inflight entertainment system is similar to A330, but just seems a little older.

Oh, and everyone has a Jeju mineral water in their seat pocket which is good for a long flight like this.

3. Inflight Meals ICN-LAS, Korean Air

2 meals were served on this 11 hours flight to Las Vegas, and since it was a midnight flight, some simple snacks like chips and bananas were offered during the wee hour as well.

Breakfast before landing – Korean congee with fruits. Very simple and light.

My hubby was having omelette for breakfast, definitely more filling than my congee.4. Verdict

Overall, it’s a long flight, luckily I had my eye shades, ear plugs and neck pillow ready otherwise can’t imagine how to survive economy long flight like this.

Seat – not as new as A330 but still comfortable 4/5

Inflight entertainment system – good touch screen, ample selections. Slightly older than A330, but still very good. 4.5/5

Meals and drinks – Looks like bibimbap is always on Korean Air’s menu, however there are still 3 selections on full meal service. Food tasted delicious. I like the fact that they serve bottled mineral water instead of aircraft tap water onboard! You’ll be surprise there are still airlines today serving aircraft water to economy class passengers.. Yuck. 4/5

Service – Service was good in general. Crew were no where to be seen during lull period however once the call button was rang, they just appear in seconds. You just have to press the call button or go to the galley whenever you need something. Very polite and gracious service. 4/5

 

Best part of taking this flight was: there were only short queue in LAS International Airport to clear the custom comparing to LAX airport. Such a breeze after 20 + hours onboard.
