With cheery teal seats and a two-deck configuration, Korean Air’s new fleet of fuel-efficient Boeing 747-8i jets is being hailed as the airline’s most comfortable yet. In addition to 314 economy seats, there are 48 staggered Prestige Class seats split between both decks and six of the carrier’s new first-class Kosmo Suites 2.0, each with a sliding door and 24-inch entertainment screen. As of September, the plane flies on routes to Frankfurt and Singapore, with services to San Francisco and Hong Kong slated to begin in November.
