Korean Air to operate seasonal A380 service to Bangkok

14 Dec 2015 by Clement Huang

Korean Air is set to increase capacity of its flights between Seoul Incheon and Bangkok later this month, with Korean Air forecasting a healthy seat load of 90 per cent during the busy winter season.

From December 19, 2015 to March 2, 2016, the Skyteam member will add a fourth daily service between the two cities, which it will serve with an A380.

Prestige Suite

Korean Air outfits its superjumbo with a three-class configuration, which includes 12 suites in first, 94 seats in Prestige (business) and 301 in economy. The high seat count in business can be attributed to the 2-2-2 seating arrangement. However, despite the six-across configuration, the Prestige Suite has been arranged in a way where every passenger still enjoys direct aisle access.

The deployment of the A380 makes Korean Air the second South Korea-based carrier (after Asiana) to fly the superjumbo on the Seoul–Bangkok route. Emirates, Thai Airways and Qatar Airways also operate A380 services through Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.
