Tue 3rd Dec. Clear and sunny, 19-31°C.
Early arrival at BNE International, first in line for check-in!
Passed through security then chosen for explosives check, naturally: no bombs.
Passport Control: quick and easy.
BNE duty free gauntlet: through with only sidelong glances, did not veer off the meandering path through the Aladdins cave of duty free treasures. Set up like Ikea, you must traverse everything.
The Korean Air B787-9 Dreamliner economy class was comfortable with plenty of leg room, good meals, and great service during the ten hour flight.
We overnighted at Incheon T2 Transit Hotel (Seoul), in a small but comfortable twin room. All Korean Air flights now use the new Terminal 2, affording a much shorter transit time.
After passing through security at the transit gate, we went directly to the hotel for a shower and good night's sleep. There was a small issue with a glass divider between the bathroom and bedroom, necessitating banishment of one person to the outside during ablutions/etc by the other. We diplomatically had an even number of stints in the corridor in our jammies.
