Incheon (ICN) to Singapore (SIN)
On the Ground: Flying out of Incheon Airport is an experience all on its own. Routinely named the best airport in the world, it boasts dozens of high-end retail shops and every kind of cuisine you can imagine. We arrived three hours early for our international flight, and I was able to get my last bowl of kimchi stew at Sonsoo Bansang, located in the Food Emporium, along with some last-minute duty-free items.
Asiana’s business-class lounge offers everything you’d expect at a home base airport. Sky-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the runway give this huge room an open feeling despite the busy traffic. Seat options include club chairs, bar stools and private cubicles, allowing travelers choices to pass the time. We chose the club chairs close to the grand piano to get some work done. The food bar offered the usual fare, but a chef stands ready to stir-fry a hot meal at the noodle bar if you want something heavier.
Pre-Flight: We boarded our Airbus A330 on time, and attendants quickly showed us to our seats in the business-class cabin with a 2-2-2 configuration. The crew quickly offered snacks and orange juice, and I was glad to get my electronics set up before we took off.
In-Flight: Once we reached cruising altitude, I got situated for the six-hour journey to Singapore, starting with a nice cup of green tea. Each seat features international electrical outlets, so I charged my devices after a day of meetings. The seats on this aircraft offer a nice seat pitch, but it wasn’t fully 180 degrees, which made me slide a bit when trying to rest. However, this was a day flight, and I had plenty of things to keep me busy. Passengers can access the onboard entertainment through the fully functioning handset to choose from dozens of movie and music options plus make requests to the crew.
The full-service dinner offered wines and top-shelf spirits along with Western food and traditional Korean fare. I chose a Korean dish of chicken and white rice with kimchi alongside a garden salad and finished with a fruit tart and glass of Riesling. After dinner, everything was cleared quickly, and my flight attendant, to my delight, brought me a cup of green tea and extra pillows without prompting to enjoy during the remaining time on board.

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
