After 2 days in Busan that were quite nice, it is time to go to Seoul to catch my flight to Hanoi and on to Bangkok.
The night was short, very short and I had to wake up at 4:30am to catch my taxi for Busan Gimhae Airport.
Whe I arrive at the airport, there are a few passengers waiting for the check-in counters to open. There is no staff yet as the counters will open at 5:40am, in 15 minutes.
The majority of the flights are bound for Gimpo and a few flights to Jeju or Incheon.

You can't go through security yet, it will open at 6am, and they will open at 6am SHARP !
As we are the first to go through security it goes ultra fast and I go to gate 11 where our Korean Air flight will depart from.
As usual I go to the windows at the gate to take a sneak peek at the plane to see which plane I'll be travelling on and today it is… OMG !!! The Korean Air Boeing 737-800 in the SkyTEAM livery !
Not a lot of people at the gate, the personnel will arrive 10 minutes before boarding to get everything in order before they start to welcome people on board.
The sun is peeking and rising over our 737-800 HL7560
Boarding is fast, first they will take the the passengers using wheelchairs, then Prestige passengers with the Elite Plus and Elite passengers.
I take my seat and here is the legroom. With the reading material…
Without the reading material…
In the distance, 2 Vietnam Airlines Airbus 321-100, maybe my HAN-BKK will be on one of these…

The cabin of our flight KE 1402 is nearly full to Souel Incheon this morning, I believe most passengers are on a connecting flight to Korean Air's extensive network.
The screens have changed, China Airlines are now on the SkyTEAM screens.
An Air Busan 737-400. They owned a majority of 737-500, a few 737-400 and some A321.
During taxiing, the crew make an announcement indicating that it is forbbiden to take pictures of the airport as it is also a military base. No pictures of the take off. You will notice that there are no pictures of the safety demonstrations. It is the same as the 380 apart from the exits.
After a short taxi, we get aligned at the runway's treshhold and our 737 start it's take off roll.
The screens have been lowered so that we can enjoy the airshow.
The cabin is very quiet due to the early departure from Busan !
It is a beautiful day over South Korea !
Shortly after the cabin attendants start the drinks service.
There is one extra choice, Orange juice, and Tomato juice, Coke, Thea, coffee, water, green tea and ice tea.
As usual I will ask for a… coke !
The flight is short and soon after the service is over, the crew will walk through the cabin to collect glasses, cups and napkins and we will start the descent to Incheon.
We are getting there, the airplane is on short final !

Good Bye SkyTEAM by Korean Air !
We get off the plane via the stairs and walk to the bus that will take us to the domestic terminal as our plane is parked at an international gate.
Busan - PUS
Seoul - ICN
Once again an excellent flight on Korean Air !
After this flight I embarked on my next journey to Bangkok via Hanoi on Vietnam Airlines.
