First Korean Air A380 rolled out of paint shop

The first A380 for Korean Air has been rolled out of the Airbus paint shop in Hamburg bearing the airline's distinctive livery.

The aircraft is the first of 10 A380s ordered by the airline.  Korean Air will become the sixth operator of the A380 when it takes delivery of its first aircraft in the second quarter of this year.

Korean Air will initially operate the A380 on flights from Seoul to Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok, followed later in the year by transpacific services to New York and Los Angeles.

Korean Air will have the least dense accommodation of all A380 operators to date offering 407 seats against Air France, the most congested, with a maximum of 538 passengers.  The entire upper deck of the Korean Air aircraft will have 94 flat-bed Prestige sleeper seats. www.koreanair.com
