Korea - Typhoon will cancel flight?
Aug 27, 12, 6:07 am
I have an international flight TSA - GMP tomorrow that lands at 5pm. I cannot get any information (in any language!) from EastarJet or even Gimpo airport... not sure what to do. What do you think? :confused:
I could be wrong but I think by tomorrow afternoon, the typhoon should have passed. But regardless, it is going to be one bumpy ride. Also, it looked like there was a storm over Taiwan this morning and might be headed to Korea also.
I would plan on going to the airport but be prepared for the flight to be cancelled. These kinds of weather patterns tend to move on fairly quickly.

Company definately cancelled any video conference from Korea during this typhoon.

We ended up being delayed out of TSA by about 2 hours. We approached Gimpo around ... 7ish? maybe a tad earlier. the winds and rain were really heavy. the plane felt like it was a little toy. most of the people were clutching their seats. we tried to land once and were what seemed pretty close to the ground, but i had a feeling we couldnt land. so, aborted landing, go around. at this time we were all looking at each other like, well, this is it. the young korean kid next to me was so sweet he was trying to translate into English what the flight attendants were saying. but they said it in english too "at this time this aircraft is having some difficulties landed. we will know more information later. thank you" lolol :D
good pilot, i know go arounds are common, but man that was scary.
Glad you made it. Winds was extremely strong yesterday.
