This link in today’s Daily Telegraph is great!
What amused me greatly what the comment that Air Koryo are the only airline that received a 1 star rating from Skytrax. Proof that their ratings can’t be trusted I supposed as I am sure we could all nominate other airlines for 1-star!14 Oct 2014
In fact the piece in the Daily Telegraph is misleading. The Air Koryo IL-18 which appears in the photos was operating a special charter flight for aviation enthusiasts. The latter specifically requested a flight in the IL-18 !
If it does remain in regular scheduled service then I would imagine it would be serve only domestic routes which few if any foreigners would ever fly.
Air Koryo does not have many international routes. As far as I can see, it doesn’t even have a website.
But one overseas destinaton it does serve is Beijing. Perhaps Kuala Lumpur too. Internationally you will find it operates more modern TU-204 jets which look like a copy of our Boeing 757.
A similar, more detailed article, also made the Daily Mail.14 Oct 2014

They also have a good Facebook site for enthusiasts.14 Oct 2014
