Flying High... Cathay Pacific, Korean Air & Air Koryo!
The truth is that I took my last flight this time one year ago from Beijing Capital to Manchester via Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways! Within this blog I will be focussing on three very different flights, with one airline being remarkably different for many reasons. From Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific to the seamless Korean Air, I wasn't ready for DPRKs own Air Koryo! Yes, I flew higher!
Cue October 1st 2018, I took my first ever international flight from Capital's Terminal 2 with Korean Air over to Seoul, South Korea. I was beyond excited, I had booked my trip to Korea with much excitement and the flight was all part of the experience. Being an 80 minute flight from Beijing to Gimpo International Airport, I wasn't expecting too much but I was more than pleasantly surprised if truth be told. Boarding was seamless, the Korean Air crew busied around the cabin and ushered the majority of the passengers into their seats so we could make our departure slot. I was fronted by my first Korean beauty, sorry ladies but that male crew member had me stuttering my words as he asked me if I was travelling alone. Did he know what I was looking for? The trip would definitely have a certain theme! Getting stuck into a Korean Drama before the plane left the gate had me making the most of the flight that would take me over the Yellow Sea to the Southern side of the Korean Peninsula. Being a celebration, I needed a beer!
