Korean Air will deploy two next-generation Boeing B737-900ER aircraft, which have just joined its fleet, on domestic as well as short and mid-haul routes to destinations in Southeast Asia and China.
These latest additions feature the Boeing Sky Interior, which can be found on the soon-to-fly Dreamliner (see here), 159 seats and a state-of-the-art AVOD (Audio Video On Demand) system in all three classes. Passengers will be able to enjoy an enhanced entertainment programme, consisting of five different menus that provide about 60 movies, 5,000 songs, 70 documentaries and various news and short features. Also, passengers will be able to search for their favorite songs by typing only the initial letters of the title.
Of late, the carrier has been on an aggressive fleet expansion and re-imaging programme, which was crowned by the arrival of its first Airbus A380 and subsequent launch of commercial services on June 17 from Seoul Incheon to Tokyo Narita, followed on the same day by Hong Kong International Airport (click here for review). It is the first Northeast Asian airline to operate the superjumbo.
The 737 Boeing Sky Interior also features a stylish and even more comfortable cabin environment with sculpted sidewalls and new windows. Also, the improved and expanded Pivot Bins not only enable passengers to load more baggage, it also helps keep disturbances to aisle seat passengers to the minimum. The LED (light emitting diode) lightening system offers a range of ambient light programs, from soft sky blue hues to a calm and relaxing palette of dusk colors, while the new touch-screen attendant panel offers enhanced convenience.
