45 Minute Stopover Enough Time?

Korean Air has flights Vancouver to Tokyo with a 45 minnute stopover in Seoul, Korea.

Just wondering if this is enough time to make connecting flight. Has anyone experienced this with Korean Air where the connecting flight is only 45 minutes?

If for whatever reason we can't make the connecting flight what is our alternative?

Thank you

Airplane unless or significantly delayed, it seems to be all right, usually.

However, those who tell you that at the time of check of the passport, you are in a hurry in Seoul (Incheon Airport?) Is good.

That way, seems to get to the shortcut.

As to be out as soon as possible by air, should You talk to the CA might be good.

Actually, I think better of flights that more time is good.

Incheon Airport seems to enjoy even about 5 hours waiting time.

The q&a homepage of the Japanese, there was lot of this question.

Both Air Canada and JAL offer non-stop flights. Why fly Korean with one stop?

If it's booked as one ticket, it meets minimum connection time requirement. otherwise the ticket cannot be issued. If you miss the connection, you will be put on the next flight, either on the same route (which could be the next day), or you'll be rerouted and fly on another airline and/or with another connection.

Proactive travellers know the alternative flights/routes and firmly demand the best alternative. if you have the proper travel insurance, it's a windfall for luxury hotels and fine dining.
