Last flight of the day out of Ord

I was just fooling around looking at departures out of ORD. It looks like Oz 235 is the last flight of the day at 11:55 pm. Should be kind of different since I've never done that before.

I stopped flying TPAC for work a couple of years ago. Glad to see OZ moved the time on this flight back to being a red eye. The only issue is it is the old J hard product (angled lie-flat). If you are flying in business and cannot sleep in that kind of seat, it probably won't work for you. In coach, it is a 34" seat pitch and has a much better than average food/beverage service. IFE is a bit dated but not bad IMO.

I liked flying it when it was scheduled around 1:00 AM. Long flight, nice meal service and then a good snooze. Arrive ICN early in the morning and can make pretty much any connection possible out of ICN you want.

I'm flying on miles so it will be better than coach

I am looking forward to this one. First solo in business class.

LOL...yes, better than coach .

My problem with this flight is that if you're connecting at ICN on star alliance, you typically have a very long layover.

But other than that, enjoy!

At 4 or 5 AM at ICN the only thing open is the OZ business lounge. I don't remember for sure but I think they have the recliner snooze chairs.

When is check in for this flight?

My Freind is going to want to check a bag on this flight. I'm assuming it will be around 9 pm for 11:55 pm flight.

I'm not to excited about that layover at I need. I take a shower and try to get a decent breakfast.

Public transportation service into Seoul generally gets going around 5:30 am, depending a bit on the route of course.

The OZ business lounges at ICN have showers as I recall.

Assuming your friend will have a lengthy connection (over 4 hours), the restaurants at the airport open up starting around 6AM or 7AM. I was impressed with the options available at ICN. But I never looked for a Western breakfast.

If your friend has a really long connection you may want to go to the Asia forums or to the OZ forum and fins threads about going into Seoul.
