Great! Maybe they know I am so darn thirsty and the water in the airport was so expensive. And we all know we cannot carry liquids more than 100 ml through airport security.

KUDOS to Korean Air for providing water as we board the plane. The first airline that I flew with that does this service.

Blanket is soft and comfortable. Its labeled KOREAN AIR PROPERTY, that means you cannot take it with you.

Freebies are great.
Toothbrush with toothpaste...excellent, because I have to check in my big toothpaste.
Socks....this is great. They know it can get darn cold, and we need extra socks. And who can think of putting extra socks in your carry on?
Sleeping Mask and Towellete. good idea!

Headphones are free..though I advice that if you don't need it, don't get one for the sake of getting one. Reduce Clutter.

Food was excellent. Wine is great, both the red wine and the white wine. I choose red wine with my pork meal, and white wine with fish. Awesome!

Movies are free.
I watched the following movies during the entire flight, because I was so tired but cannot sleep. I miss Rob badly.
Marley and Me
Confessions of a Shopaholic
