I needed to book a round trip from Seoul to Hong Kong in Mid-May, and the research narrowed me down to Air Macau and Jin Air (subsidiary airline of Korean Air). I decided to take Jin Air, because I wanted to arrive in Hong Kong. For the return flight from Hong Kong to Seoul on 18 May, however, I changed it to Macau->Seoul flight. It was my first time taking Jin Air and the first time taking a Korean LCC (low cost carrier). I actually didn't expect an inflight meal to be served, but there was indeed an inflight meal service. The seat pitch was comparable to that of Southwest Airlines.
At my Gate 131, with my boarding pass. I was at the most western end of the satellite terminal?, where the gates here are one floor below normal departure gates.
The boarding time was delayed slightly to 9:15AM.
Jin Air's flight attendant uniform is very casual. It's the airlines' approach to become more friendly and less formal (in a good way). They wear jeans for uniform.
Fly better fly; that's the company motto.
This aircraft was previously with Korean Air. The seats didn't change; only the head covers changed.
Looking toward ICN main terminal.
There was just enough legroom for me. Notice KE's patterns on the seats.
It would be a full flight today.
And as we were taking off toward the north on Runway 34, another plane was taking off parallel to us from Runway 33L.
As we were flying over Jeju Island, the inflight service was started.
I was thinking it would be a small snack, but it turned out to be a good looking meal!
There was pasta salad (with tomato sauce), rice roll with tuna salad, Sausage patties, Kimchi, and Vanilla Cake. That vanilla cake sure looks like a tofu in this photo.
I took a good 3-hour long nap. When I woke up, the plane was already descending toward Hong Kong airport.
A cloudy day in Hong Kong due to typhoon effects nearby.
That is the new satellite concourse for Hong Kong Airport.
And our plane arrived at the north satellite concourse building, where mostly smaller jets and LCC go to.
Buses to the main terminal are accessible at the ground floor of this building.
The whole ride takes about 15 min.
I stopped by Tim Ho Wan in IFC Mall Plaza as soon as I got to Hong Kong. It is undeniably one of the most famous dim sum places in Hong Kong, and known as the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant. It is very affordable and the food quality and taste are the one of the best in HK.
