Korean Air to deploy B747 to Singapore

16 Jul 2015 by Clement Huang

Korean Air will adjust seasonal capacity on its Seoul Incheon – Singapore route by replacing select flights currently served by the B777-300ER with the larger B747-400.

Between August 10 and September 5, the jumbo jet will operate the route out of Seoul every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while the B777-300ER will continue to serve the Lion City on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Flight KE641 departs Seoul at 1840 and arrives in Singapore at 2350. The return service, KE642 will then take off again from Singapore at 0110 and arrive back in Seoul at 0825.

The deployment of the B747-400 will see a modest increase in capacity. Whilst the B777-300ER features a total of 291 seats, with eight seats in first, 56 in business and 227 in economy, the jumbo jet will offer 333 seats, with 10 seats in first, 61 in business, and 262 in economy.

The added capacity does come at a cost though, as the cabin products on the B747-400 are inferior to those featured on the newer B777-300ER. In particular, the business class (Prestige) product on the jumbo jet is an angle-flat seat, unlike the flat bed seats on the B777-300ER.

Korean Air currently serves flights between Seoul Incheon and Singapore 16 times per week.
