New A380 options as Korean Air receives new aircraft

Korean Air has added a tenth A380 aircraft to its fleet.

The latest A380 will go through the required tests in Korea before making its debut flight to Atlanta on August 3rd.

Korean Air operates fourteen A380 flights a week between both Incheon-Los Angeles and Incheon-New York and also seven flights a week between Incheon-Paris.

The carrier also operates the A380 on the Incheon-Atlanta route, strengthening competitiveness on long-haul business routes.

Configured in a three-class layout with just 407 seats in total, Korean Air provides the ultimate comfort to passengers onboard its ‘hotel in the sky’.

Korean Air’s A380 has 301 seats in economy class, the lowest configuration of any A380 operator so far, providing the most spacious pitch of 34 inches.

The ergonomically designed ‘New Economy’ seats provide the utmost comfort to passengers on long haul flights.

Korean Air took the bold step of being the first global carrier to devote an entire upper deck of the large aircraft to a single class.

Some 94 fully flat ‘Prestige Sleeper’ seats are located on the upper deck of the A380 in Prestige Class providing an experience that can be likened to a business class only aircraft.

And for the ultimate experience twelve ultra-luxurious First Class Kosmo Suites are located at the front of the lower deck and provide passengers with independent space, whilst also ensuring total privacy.
Korean Air’s first A380 was delivered in June 2011 and the delivery of the tenth finalises the order.

The A380 aircraft will be deployed on long-haul routes to the US and Europe providing the ultimate in passenger comfort.
