|There was no duty-free shop on-board when I flew in August 2010!|
My Korean friends and students always get excited about duty-free shopping. They think its a huge bargain, but in reality we get much better discounts on these items back in the States. First Class passengers are allowed to browse through the items first, and then business class passengers and economy class will have the last pick.
It's crazy to think that the revenue from 13 seats can actually be surpassed by a small shop on board the plane. This is a true attestation to the Korean Culture and how any fad becomes a frenzy that everyone wants to be a part of. Everyone on that plane wants to walk off with a duty-free bag so they can feel like an elite flyer. See the full article from AOL Travel here.
