Korean Air to Offer First Class on New Nonstop Boston-Seoul Route

Operated by the carrier’s three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, the new flights will run five times a week.

The flights will operate five times weekly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Starting April 12 next year, Korean Air will be launching a new nonstop route between Boston and Seoul.

The flights will operate five times weekly (on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) aboard three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

First-class sleeper suites.

Notably, Korean Air’s Dreamliner will feature six of the carrier’s fully flat first-class sleeper suites, which offer a pitch of 190 centimeters and a width of 53 centimeters.

While the seats are configured 2-2-2, the rows are slightly offset, leaving a gap through which window-seat passengers can access the aisles without having to climb over another passenger.

Prestige suites.

The same feature is available with Korean Air’s 18 business-class prestige suites, which are also laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration, but with less space between the rows.

Travelers will find that the seat products in both first and business class are similar, with passengers in both classes enjoying Davi-branded amenity kits.

In the economy class cabin, 245 seats with a pitch of between 84-86 centimeters and a width of 44 centimeters will be laid out nine across.

John Jackson, Korean Air’s managing vice president, said: “As a major gateway for high tech industries, Boston is the most popular unserved point from Korea with rapidly growing demand to Asia.”

The new route will be launched as part of the expanding joint-venture partnership between Korean Air and Delta Air Lines, as they ramp up services between South Korea and the U.S.
