I visited South Korea again.
This time, it was a relatively short trip (6 nights) compared to my visit last May (12 nights) and to be honest I didn’t do much but the ‘beauty’ of my trip was that I only stayed in Seoul.
Gone were the days where I city-hopped to chased sunrise/sunset across the coastal cities.
For this trip, all my accommodation was in Seoul and the focus was kind of catching up with friends and trying to figure out what’s the next big trend that I can write about.
1. I took Asiana Airlines (OZ754/OZ753)
It was my first time taking this airline (well, tickets were affordable at $567) and I thought that it would have been cool to take a Star Alliance flight but little did I know that.. it’s quite a disappointment from my expectations. I guess I have been too pampered in my travels this year (JAL, SIA, Cathay) and forgotten that not all full-service airlines have a proper in-flight entertainment system.
The departing flight delayed for more than an hour (we departed at almost 5am) but it was understandable as there had been a typhoon the past couple of days. Anyway, the departure flight’s in-flight entertainment was the old school system where you can’t select the movies/shows you want to watch whenever you want it. You surf through the channels and watch it and whatever timing it has elapsed until. You are not able to start/pause/stop. This was the super old school way.
What can be worse.. for our return flight back, there wasn’t even a TV at every seat. The only TV you could watch was the sharing one above.
On hindsight, no in-flight entertainment wasn’t that bad after all as I could sleep and catch up on my sleep.
