I like how they are fed. Chicken or fish... I had the lasagna.
I think there are some numerical errors in that article:

- "We cruise at an altitude about the height of Mount Halla on Jeju Island (1,950 meters)..." A cruising altitude of 1950 meters is awful low, only about 6100-6200 feet.
- "Kicking off on the runway at 350 kph..." That's a bit fast (almost 200 kts).

I'm not sure if the issue is an error in calculation, but the fact checkers at CNN need to check a little bit better.

That makes more sense. Probably an error in translation, or just a difference in syntax.

Still, leaving the runway at 200 kts seems a bit fast to me.
The spouse thing killed me.
