Korean Air has added a tenth Airbus A380 aircraft to its fleet.

 The latest A380, which is configured in a three-class layout with just 407 seats in total, is now going through the required tests in Korea before making its debut flight to Atlanta on 3 August 2014.

 Korean Air operates fourteen A380 flights a week between both Incheon-Los Angeles and Incheon-New York and also seven flights a week between Incheon-Paris.

The carrier also operates the A380 on the Incheon-Atlanta route, strengthening competitiveness on long haul business routes.

Korean Air’s A380 has 301 seats in economy class, the lowest configuration of any A380 operator so far, providing a pitch of 34 inches.

Korean Air has also devoted an entire upper deck of the large aircraft to a single class. 94 fully flat ‘Prestige Sleeper’ seats are located on the upper deck of the A380 in Prestige Class (business class) providing a more exclusive experience.

Twelve First Class Kosmo Suites are located at the front of the lower deck.

Korean Air’s ‘Duty Free Showcase’ is located at the back of the lower deck and features a variety of duty-free products with a dedicated cabin crew member on hand to assist and advise passengers with all their shopping needs.

The ‘Celestial Bar’ is a dedicated area of the A380 aircraft where passengers can sample Korean Air’s exclusive cocktails during their flight. Six cocktails feature at the bar, chosen following a special cocktail tasting event carried out by the airline for VIP customers.

Other bars are located on each floor at the front of the aircraft, by the Prestige and First Class cabins and passengers can help themselves to a range of beverages and have some time away from their seat.

Korean Air’s first A380 was delivered in June 2011 and the delivery of the tenth finalizes the order.
