Greetings Flight Report Community. Thanks for stopping by and having a look at this report. This is part 2 in the itinerary described below.
For this report I will be sharing an adventure that took place in November 2014. I've gone through my photos and determined there is enough to document the experience adequately. I have taken lounge photos from previous visits to round out the report. It's a pleasure for me to arrange the pictures into a report to relive the excitement of the trip. The reports will be broken down as follows:
LAX Delta Skyclub and Delta LAX-SEA (First)http://flight-report.com/en/report-10695.html Delta SEA Skyclub and Delta SEA-ICN (Business)(This Report) Asiana ICN Business Class Lounge and Asiana ICN-SIN (Business)(Coming Soon) Singapore Airlines The Private Room and Singapore Airlines SIN-HKG (First)(Coming Soon) United Club Hong Kong and ANA HKG-NRT (Business)(Coming Soon) ANA Suite Lounge NRT and ANA NRT-ORD (First)(Coming Soon)
I experienced several firsts on this adventure:
First time in SQ TPR and SQ First First time on ANA in any class
I had a little under 2 hours layover in SEA. Enough time to visit the Delta Skyclub. The club is one level above the departures level along with the British Airways Galleries Lounge.
Elevator up to club level.
Good ramp views from the lounge. The BA lounge faces the runway.
Note the Seattle Seahawks 12th Man tug.
This is an extremely ordinary domestic lounge. There is a shower so that is helpful but I didn't utilize it on this day. If you can get a seat by the window the views are pleasant and the staff seem helpful and responsive. Flights to NRT, PVG, ICN, AMS, CDG all depart within a few hours so there is a sizable crowd. PEK, HND, and LHR are a little later in the evening.
Our trusty A330 waiting at the gate. I'm a fan of the short fuselage long wing combo. 777-200LR, A340-500, A330-200 and 787-8 are all striking to my eye.
Boarding commenced on time and with a 2/3 full airplane was accomplished fairly efficiently.
I was seated in the forward Business Elite cabin. Great privacy in these reverse herringbone seats.
PDB and almonds distributed. The salty, candied almonds are quite tasty. I would appreciate a larger portion. I won't even start on the package vs. ramekin.
View out the window at the large Pratt.
Taxi times are short at SEATAC and we were on our way.
Great views on climb.
Tuning in to my favorite IFE channel.
Meal orders were taken on the ground. I selected a braised beef shortrib. Braising this cut seems to be the best hope for a tender entree. Started with a gin & tonic too.
Appiziter: Spicy shrimp with citrus wedges and white bean puree.
Next up was a blue cheese wedge salad and a minestrone soup. The salad was a great presentation. The soup was tasty with crisp vegetables. Always enjoy the pretzel bread.
The main paired with a glass of Malbec. Braised beef shortrib with some kind of demi-glace, broccoli rabe with garlic, and red skin mashed potato.
This was a very satisfying entree. The veg was properly crisp and the meat was tender and flavorful.
Let's take some cheese and late harvest semillon.
Service throughout he meal was attentive and performed at a good pace. Wine was topped regularly as well as the Pellegrino.
Post meal service it was time to settle in and enjoy the IFE. I was pleasantly surprised to find my favorite TV program! (RIP)
Some IFE and a good nap and we are over northeast China and the pre-arrival meal is presented. Choices are an egg dish, cold cereal, or a savory option. I selected the latter.
It is odd to serve jam and butter with cashew chicken but I understand the base tray is setup in advance of the entree placement.
Some nice views on the approach to ICN. The iconic terminal head is visible before touchdown.
Delta Air Lines
Delta Air Lines Sky Club
Seattle - SEA
Seoul - ICN
Another very pleasant TPAC with Delta. Warm and attentive service combined with a solid seat/bed and quality food and beverage. The A330-200 is a great ride and I prefer the two smaller Business Elite cabins vs. the single large cabin of the A330-300. It was a pleasure flying with Delta.
Up next is ICN-SIN in Business on the Asiana A330-300.
