Trip Report Korean Air to Europe with a toddler

Jump to last reply

This is, in lieu of a trip report, a brief evaluation of our Korean Air flight from Sydney to Frankfurt and back on Korean Air. We (husband, 39, me 42 and daughter, two and a half) boarded the flight in Sydney last June. A very early start for us, but we made it OK to the airport. We did a similar trip last year with our daughter (work-related travel) so it’s not the first time we’ve flown long-haul with her, but she seems to have forgotten the first trip. This report is less about travelling with her and more about our experiences on Korean Air, because I was surprisingly pleased with them as a carrier to Europe.

We like Singapore Airlines but they are just getting too expensive, Qantas is similar, and the airfare with Korean Air was very competitive. We had also been told by the staff at the travel agent we bought the ticket through that Korean Air was very good value for money and I totally agree. Seoul / Incheon is actually a good distance between Sydney and Frankfurt for a stopover as it’s roughly eleven hours on both legs, making it very close to half way. Seoul is only an hour behind Sydney in the time zones, though, so it doesn’t help you along in terms of catching up to European time. I will say a little about jetlag later on too.
I will post this in bits as it's so long.
