Korean Air is known for providing top-notch service and meals. Even in the economy class, passengers can enjoy plenty of legroom and delicious snacks and meals. On my round trip flight, I was served either a 6-inch sub sandwich and a hot pocket, or a full-size sub sandwich as snacks, which were fresh and tasty. For meals, passengers can choose from bibimbap, American, or Chinese options. I personally recommend the bibimbap, but the other choices won't disappoint either. Additionally, on the longer flight from Korea to DFW, toothbrush, toothpaste, and slippers were provided to ensure a comfortable flight.

What airports serve South Africa to the Philippines flights?

Travellers can fly from South Africa to the Philippines at the O.R. Tambo International Airport, which is located in Johannesburg about 20 minutes outside of the city. If you are leaving from a different part of South Africa, you can also find flights to Manila at the Cape Town International Airport, which is just 20 km from downtown Cape Town. Both South African airports have taxi and public transit service available.

Which airlines fly directly from South Africa to the Philippines?

Unfortunately, there are no nonstop flights between South Africa and the Philippines. Instead, there are multiple single-stop flights available from both Johannesburg and Cape Town.
