Korean Air is scheduled to induct the double-decker Airbus A380 plane in its fleet this year by May. They have made very luxurious plans for the new plane and its interiors. They plan turn the entire upper deck of an Airbus A380 into a luxurious space for business class passengers with lie-flat seats. The total number of seats in the plane will be reduced, but the idea is to provide space and comfort on long haul flights.
The Korean Air design for Airbus A380 will provide only 407 seats. This is, so far, the lowest number of seats on any commercial A380 flying with any of the airlines. The entire upper deck which is being converted to Business Class will accommodate 94 passengers. There will be 12 First Class suits in the nose of the plane. The lower deck will house the Economy Class with a total of 301 seats.
The configuration of three classes is identical to most other airlines but the design aims at passenger comfort and luxury more than optimizing the number of seats on the large plane. Korean Air has ordered a total of 10 Airbus A380. The delivery of the planes will start in May and go on through the year.
