Yesterday, I wrote about my business class flight from Seattle to Seoul. On the way back, I flew in first class. I paid 95,000 Korean Air miles and $208 in fees for the one-way flight from Bangkok to Seoul to Seattle. This review is just for the Bangkok to Seattle leg. The flight was at 6:30PM and was about 9:30 hrs long. Since we were delayed on our arrival, we didn’t get to spend any time at the lounge.
There are many reviews online already, so I won’t rehash. I thought dinner was okay. I thought the champagne was on the sweet side (yes, I am aware it’s a rose champagne.) I still don’t really like caviar. Service was fine. I found it funny when she offered me macadamia nuts in a bag ,and when I said yes, she came back with them in a bowl.
Here’s my big gripe – similar to my Asiana A380 first class flight, I did NOT have a good sleep. I think it’s either due to the lack of air circulation in the small enclosed space, the pajamas not being breathable, or the blanket. I just remember waking up VERY OFTEN needing to drink water because my mouth was so dry. I kept turning because it was too hot one minute and too cold the next minute. I thought the one pillow was too soft as well. I did NOT have as good a sleep as I did when I flew in business class. While it was miserable, it benefited me because we landed at noon and I needed to stay awake due to jet lag.
I am planning on flying Korean F again in a few weeks, so maybe this time, I’ll skip the pajamas and see if it’s the cabin (which is my hunch.)
