Korean Air to fly B747-8 to Heathrow

4 Mar 2015 by GrahamSmith

Korean Air will roster a B747-8 featuring its new business class onto its Seoul Incheon to London Heathrow route from August 2.

The national carrier will initially operate the route three-times weekly.

From September 1, it will replace the incumbent B777-300ER and fly to LHR on a daily basis.

Prestige class

The B747-8 will be configured in three classes with six seats in first class, 48 in Prestige (business), and 314 in economy.

The entire upper deck houses 22 business seats in a 2-2 layout, with the remaining 26 seats on the main deck in a 2-2-2 configuration.

Outbound service KE907 departs Seoul at 1300 and arrives in London at 1725, while return service KE908 leaves London at 1935 and lands in Seoul at 1425 the next day.

Korean Air introduced the new Prestige Suite cabin seat, which it will debut on an A330-300 currently serving flights to Guangzhou, Singapore and Hanoi, last month (see news, February 4).
