So if we want to fly F, is it a safer bet to stick to OZ 201/202? Thinking about a booking in April 2019.

That has been a wisdom here.. unless you're purchasing directly from OZ or redeeming OZ miles in which cases you'll be protected.

Hmm...just booked (with other FFP miles) on 204 in Biz for mid august 2019.... guess I'll have to wait and see (although if the schedule posted above applies to 2019 it should (?) be the 380...…)

I booked a LAX-ICN-NGO ticket flying Y with OZ for April 25 2019 and it show on OZ website that LAX-ICN trip has 359 (OZ203). I'm hoping that OZ won't change the plane to 380, since the return trip of ICN-LAX will be 380 anyway (OZ201).

OZ did it again... Mrs. Zippy was booked on OZ203 in 4/2019, and they changed the aircraft from an A380 to an A350. We were not even informed... no email or other notification. I couldn't find anything on their Web site.

OZ203 in April seem like to have A350, you just need to click on expand when you book the flight through Asiana website next to the flight details and hours.

You're lucky...in July, I used UA miles to book LAX-ICN-FUK on an F award (J ICN-FUK). In September, OZ downgauged that flight to a 777, but left the reservation intact. In October, they upgauged back to an A380 - and CANCELLED the reservation, even though they were flying the same metal I had originally booked. UA was unable to get OZ to reconsider (and so UA gave me J space LAX-NRT instead...).

Any miles "refunded" to you after being downgraded?

Well this thread will do it. Been wanting to take the mrs. In first to ICN and given the downguage Im going to pull the trigger on the two F spaces in mid April that shows a380 still from lax to icn.

Thanks for all the informative info here!

Any news on whether the February flights are still A380? Have an F booking on OZ 204 next month

OZ 204 appears to be an A380 until end of February and then OZ 204 disappears until end of October.

UA took very good care of us - they charged us fewer miles for LAX-NRT(UA)-HIJ(NH) than they charged us for the return KIX-ICN-LAX (all in OZ); possibly b/c NRT-HIJ was in Y on a CRJ700...

Also, FYI, J on the A359 was better than J on the A380. The 359 seat felt wider, and certainly had more space within the seat "pod" (I think the pitch was longer on the A359). Also, the bins on the A380 were VERY small (although the A359 did not have center bins in the front J cabin at least...).

Thankfully the A380 stuck for my flight; it was phenomenal! Too bad Asiana has so few of them in their fleet; seems like only the daytime LAX and Frankfurt flights get it regularly
