New York to Bangkok via Seoul on 27 Dec 2012

Food & shops

Had a nice Asian pear and ginger tea in a vaguely restful and pleasant environment near gate 15.

Tokyo to Los Angeles via Seoul on 16 Aug 2012

Food & shops

You'll find a great selection of foods from across Asia, plus some conventional western stuff. When in Asia, go Asian. If you have a long layover, be sure to check out the free activities at the Korean Cultural Experience locations. The architecture is bright, open and airy. Bottom line - this is a great airport for passing a few hours while waiting for flights. You won't see anything like it in the U.S. Let's hope that changes.

Seoul to Osaka on 23 Jun 2012

Food & shops

As always there was a lot of transit traffic, and Koreans spending their savings at duty free. You can buy duty free at special shops in Seoul and pick it up at the airport, but often the queues at the pick up area are massive and its quicker just to buy it at the airport. I did notice the price of the Korean food at one of the food courts inside the terminal, and its easily 3X the city price. If you eat at one of the franchise restaurants, they have city pricing.

Private lounge

The lounge is really nice. Modern, spacious, interesting food options and great views. The kind that makes you feel like you're indulging in something special.

Seoul to Osaka on 23 Jun 2012

Gate & boarding

Boarding was delayed around 45 minutes so I hung out in the lounge until boarding was called. On the plane they said it was 'due to incoming aircraft, and they typhoon in Japan', except I knew the plane arrived in ICN the previous night, and the typhoon was no where near KIX, so there must have been another reason for the delay.

Seoul to Osaka on 23 Jun 2012

Security

The 13:20 flight to KIX misses the morning rush at ICN, and it was one of the quicker times I've been through ICN security in recent memory. Though I did get stuck behind a older mainland Chinese who tried to go through the metal detector with his carry on causing a problem.
