Chicken in Tomato Sauce with Pasta

-Manila en route to Incheon-

solo

Family Business in Korea, Day 1.

In transit. On my way to Seoul to attend my cousin MS’s wedding.

The in-flight meal was pretty crappy, even by the lower standards of Korean Air Prestige Class.

As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel, especially via business class.  Any comments here, even the negative ones, are simply relative to other business class experiences, not complaints per se.
