The big picture: Korean Air's new premium seats
Published: 01/05/2009 - Filed under: News »
Korean Air has released images of its new premium seats, due to enter service on the carrier's Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from the end of May. The airline has also announced that it will begin refitting all of its mid and long-haul aircraft with the new seats (along with a new slimline economy seat offering) from this September, with a completion date slated for March 2011.

Could I please know the width in inches of the economy class seats. I am traveling July 2nd from Atlanta on Korean Air. I am a larger person (270lbs.). I want to know if I would fit comfortable in these seats. Are there other alternatives if I am too wide for the seat?

I am so happy to learn that Korean Airline will start the Economy Premium seats by March 2011. At the beginning of this year, I was very impressed with Korean Airline and the Inchon Airport, but as a senior, needed a more comfortable seat. Will surely fly Korean Airline again next year. :)

I'm kind disappointed with Korean Air's new first class and business class seats. For first class seats, length is ok but it needs more width: at least 30 inch not 26.5 inch. It needs more privacy wall and needs to equip some clothed. Also color has to be changed. That color looks like cheap, and it has to be like elegant or rich color such as dark brown or light brown and should use leather.
For business class, 74 inch pitch isn't enough for people who are taller than 6 feet 4 inch: it must be 78 inch. Perhaps it should have equip with ottoman. Plus, that color should change same as first class. Someday in the future, Korean Air will produce much better first class and business class seats: they must be better than current one.
