In partnership with Delta Air Lines, Korean Air has launched nonstop flights between Boston and Seoul on April 12.

This new service, along with the Minneapolis/St. Paul-Seoul and Seattle-Osaka services that Delta is launching, are the first additions to the joint venture’s transpacific network since the two carriers debuted their partnership last May.

Operated by Korean Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, the Boston-Seoul service will run five days a week. Passengers can look forward to six first-class sleeper suites, 18 prestige business class suites, as well as 245 seats in economy class.

In first class, passengers will be served farm-to-flight meals with food grown at the airline’s own farm on Jeju Island. Other highlights include a 23-inch high-resolution monitor, luxurious duvet and bedding, and in-flight clothing by Gianfranco Ferre. First-class customers will also have access to a dedicated check-in lounge and first-class lounge at Incheon Airport.

Meanwhile, those flying on the airline’s prestige suites will enjoy private 21-inch wide flatbed seats with direct aisle access. Onboard, an award-wining food and wine program, as well as a premium amenity kit await.

Finally, Korean Air’s economy class comes with 33-34 inches between seats, a 10.6-inch high-resolution personal monitor, and a variety of meal options.

Designed for passenger comfort, the 787-9 Dreamliner features improved humidity and cabin pressure, dynamic lighting that can reduce jet lag, a state-of-the-art on-demand entertainment system, in-seat power, and large, electronically-dimmable cabin windows.
