British Airways to be first oneworld airline to operate London Seoul

I went “huh?!?!” went we received this news.

British Airways will launch six times a week flights between Seoul Incheon and London Heathrow, on 2 December 2012, and surprise, surprise, it will also be the only member of the oneworld alliance to serve the route.!!!

Given the importance of London in the global area as well as Seoul, it is very surprising the UK flag carrier did not have a flight till now.

The non-stop route will be served by the long-range Boeing 777-200ER aircraft in four cabin configuration – First and Club World business class, World Traveller Plus premium economy and World Traveller economy class.

British Airways last flew to Seoul between 1996 and 1998.

Jolly good show chaps.
