February 18, 2014 It was my first time flying with Asiana in first class so you would understand how excited I was on this day. I have flown with them in business class last year at least three times but this is quite different since I really get to experience the great food and excellent service exclusive for first class passengers.

My Asiana First boarding pass while enjoying a glass of red wine at the Senator Lounge
First class passengers on Asiana get to use the Senator Lounge which they also call their First Class Lounge. I am really hoping that one day, I could also have access to the famous Lufthansa First Class Terminal but for now, I am still happy with the Senator Lounge.
Boarding at Gate B42.

Arrival in Seoul
I had about six hours before I take my connecting fligth to Tokyo so I decided to go to the city. Although it was cold, it was sunny day in Seoul!
Impeccable service, excellent food and comfortable seat. I was impressed that the purser came to my seat to thank me personally for flying with them. Upon learning that I'm from the Philippines, she actually thanked me in Filipino language. Cool!
I've read a lot of reviews about Asiana first class and they all say one thing, it is one of the best airlines to fly with. I totally agree. I will never hesitate flying with you again, Asiana. Kamsahamnida!
