Routing


Hello everyone and a good afternoon from Seoul-Incheon airport! I'm done with my vacation but there's still one flight i need to take before i arrive home. Anyways here's the 777-200ER i just got off, HL7755. Transiting at ICN is very easy and only took me a few minutes to complete.

We were parked next to an Ethiopian 787 heading to ADD.

seat features


This 777 is in a 3-3-3 layout, which is better than the 3-4-3 most airlines are switching to. Even BR, a 5 star Skytrax airline, is switching.
The seats came with a bifold tray table and a screen plus a remote.

On my seat already was an amenity kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, and a pair of slippers.

IFE screen with AVOD. While its not as modern as the A350, it still has the same selection of movies and TV shows.

dinner


After takeoff, dinner was served with a choice between Chicken or Ssambap, i went for the Ssambap. It was served as beef and rice with lettuce leaves, alongside some bean sauce, egg roll, soybean soup, kimchi, and a bean pastry for dessert.

Main: Beef ssambap rolls 7/10 It was really nice making your own wraps. However, the portion was a bit small for me.

Side: egg patty 10/10 Probably the best part of this meal, it was a bit salty and very sadysfying to eat.

Now, that was the only thing I ate. While the quality of all the other options looked fine, i just wasn't very intreated in them. But, if you like kimchi and soybean soup, you'll be very happy with this meal.

Here's the cabin after the meal service ended

Like i mentioned earlier, the IFE on this place is a bit older than the A350s but still feature the same entertainment selection.

However, while i was watching coco the screen glitched and froze. It stayed that way for about a minute then went back to normal


photo img_20230828_213501

Here's the lavatories. Its clean and simple


photo img_20230828_225602photo img_20230828_204200

A mirror

Given that this flight was an overnight flight, no snacks were handed out between meals. But the crew did come through a couple times with water.


breakfast


I slept for a few hours and woke up right before breakfast started. There was a choice between Korean congee or scrambled eggs. I went for the eggs


photo img_20230829_031715photo img_20230829_031836

Main: Scrambled eggs with sausages and potatoes 6/10. It was fine for airplane eggs, but breakfasts on airplanes don't generally impress me.

Side: Blueberry yoghurt 7/10 Can't go wrong with a classic yoghurt for breakfast.

Side: Bread soft roll with butter 6/10 The last bread soft roll I had on this trip.

Side: Fruits 6/10 Decent selection of fruits.

Conclusion

While Asiana airlines is a good airline, flying with them 4 times this year i just don't think they deserve to be a 5 star airline. While getting meals on short-haul flights are nice, other airlines that are not 5 star like CI and PR also provide meals on short haul flights. Probably the worst thing about Asiana was their IFE. Its limited, and a lot of the hardware is outdated. However, their crews are nice and the legroom is very generous. I would say that Asiana is a solid 4 star Arline.
