Korean Air Receives 9th A380

Korean Air Lines Co., South Korea's No. 1 full-service air carrier, said Friday it will take over its ninth A380 superjumbo jet and use it to service the Atlanta route starting next month.

The Airbus passenger jet, to arrive in Incheon International Airport on Saturday, is configured to carry 407 passengers overall, of which 301 are economy seats.

The airline said the 33-34 inches of space between economy seat rolls is the widest among any operator of the A380, making Korean Air jets more comfortable for passengers on long-distance flights. The A380 also has 94 prestige-class seats making up the entire upper deck of the plane, and 12 first class seats at the front of the main deck.

The company, the 12th-largest passenger carrier in the world, said that after final security inspections, the plane will be deployed on the route connecting Incheon to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport route starting on July 6.

Korean Air first received the A380 in June 2011. The planes are used on flights to Los Angeles, New York and Paris. It said the 10th and last A380 ordered will arrive in July.

The company also said it came in at the top of the best passenger service ranking in the Global Customer Satisfaction Competency Index (GCSI) this year for the 10th year in a row.

The GCSI is managed by Japan Management Association Consultants Inc., which evaluates customer's satisfaction on services offered by an airline. Korean Air has ranked at the top of the list since 2005.
