Asiana A380 Los Angeles to Seoul

Did this flight with the “other” Korean superjumbo on what is currently one of three routes Asiana deploys it on, the others being Seoul-Tokyo/Narita and Seoul-Osaka/Kansai, which is currently the one of the world’s shortest scheduled A380 routes. A380 service will expand later this year with service to Sydney and Barcelona. However, the final curtain call for the Whale in Korea is fast approaching, with both Korean Air and Asiana planning on retiring their fleets by 2026. Thus, these jets are very much an “enjoy while you can” experience.
