Korean Air: First Class SFO-SGN

  • Plane: 777
  • When: Dec 2017
  • Where: SFO-ICN, ICN-SGN
  • Award booking: 95,000 Skypass miles 1-way 1st class per person
  • Booking method: Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer
  • Overall experience: 9.5/10
  • Meals: Good/excellent, the noodle dishes tended to be mushy
  • Seats: Good/excellent, the ICN-SGN segment seats were business class non-Kosmo suites so in comparison were not as good
  • Service: Excellent
  • Lounge access: Excellent, we were the only two at the SFO British Airways First Class lounge so it felt really special, however, the space and food selection would be considered as just “good.” The lounge at Incheon was about the same in terms of food and drink selection; looking forward to the newly opened terminal.
  • If I could pay with cash, I would definitely use Korean Air first class as a regular. Even though, there wasn’t that extra oomph of wow-ness, I do appreciate the attention to service and comfort.
