Welcome to this trip-report reviewing Korean Air A330-300. I was going on a business trip to Seoul and I chose Korean Air.
My trip Korean Air Shanghai Pudong - Seoul Incheon B777-300 Economy link Korean Air Seoul Incheon - Shanghai Pudong A330-300 Economy You are hear
Korean Air has 21 A330-300 in the fleet has 2 versions of the configurations. Both have 6 First class seats and 18 business class seats. I am not quite sure which configuration my aircraft is.
My journey started with me checking-in at the city airport terminal. The city airport terminal allows passengers to check -in at a separate building located from away from the actual terminal. This is ao convenient in my opinion as it reduces the time at the airport. Sometimes the check-in line and immigration are really long at the airport. This features raises my points of convenience and services.
I went back to my hotel , had breakfast and then I took the airport shuttle from the city to the airport
The beautiful terminal from outside
The check-in terminal with the ridiculous high ceilings which gave an open feeling
I had done my immigration at the city terminal and therefore there was a small line for city passengers at the airport. The line was not that big Some unique birds that I ran into. Delta A350 Korean A380 China Southern A330 Air France B777-300ER

The meal service commenced soon after departure. I had pre-booked a vegetarian option. The meal was not that bad, I wasn't hungry so, I just left it.
The seat has a cup holder which is really convenient

Thank you for reading this trip report. Please check out some of my other trip-reports like:

China Eastern B777-300ER Economy Class Shanghai Pudong - New York link
Seoul - ICN
Shanghai - PVG
The Shanghai - Seoul route is operated by many airlines like China Eastern, China Southern, Asiana and more. It is a very competitive route and whatever you choose it is not going to be a bad option. Korean Air is a really good airline in my opinion and I definitely recommend it. The city check-in option in Seoul is very convenient for the passengers and makes it efficient and comfortable. Altogether, it was a great trip.
