Korean Air’s A380-800 aircraft is the largest in the airline’s fleet.
It is equipped with 407 seats spread over 2 floors and offers three classes of service: First, Prestige, and Economy.
First Class seats are open Kosmo suite flat bed seats.
All Prestige seats are located on the second floor and are Prestige Sleeper flat bed seats.
Although these seats are designated as flat-bed seats that recline 180 degrees, passengers have found the seat backs do not seem to recline fully parallel to the floor.
Passengers often complain about this plane getting hot and stuffy as you are unable to direct or adjust the air vents on this aircraft.
All seats in this aircraft are fitted with AVOD entertainment and in-seat power ports.
The following rows may be used as reference: First Class are rows 1-3; Prestige Class are rows 7-23; and Economy ends at row 59.
Korean Air’s A380 first class cabin consists of 12 seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.
Since the first class cabin is on the lower deck it’s a bit more spacious than on those airlines that put first class on the upper deck, given that the cabin itself is wider.
To recap, of the airlines operating the A380, Air France, British Airways, China Southern, Malaysia, Qantas, and Singapore have first class on the lower deck, while Emirates, Lufthansa, and Thai have first class on the upper deck.
Compared to other A380 first class products, Korean Air’s actually isn’t that snazzy or innovative. All 12 seats are “open,” so they’re not fully enclosed and don’t have any awesome gadgets or anything.
As a result, the cabin does feel extremely spacious.
And the seats do also have a good amount of privacy, given that there’s a shield that goes up between center seats, in addition to the “shells” around seats going up as well.
The center seats looked spacious as well, and actually pretty decent for people traveling together since you can actually easily communicate with one another.
The seat had a large ottoman (it doesn’t double as a buddy seat, for what it’s worth), and under it was some “open” storage, so you could leave a laptop bag or shoes there, for example.
There’s a ton of space at the side of the seat.
There’s both a huge “armrest,” as well as a huge “gap” along the side of the plane by the window.
To the right of the seat are the seat controls, which are intuitive.
That’s also where the controls are for raising or lowering the “shield” around your seat.
Korean Air A380 Business Class cabins are configured with 94 business class seats spread across the entire length of the upper deck.
The Business Class seats are standard, forward facing seats in a 2 X 2 X 2 layout.
They do not offer direct aisle access for every passenger but they do recline to a true, 180 degree, lie-flat bed.
According to SeatGuru, the seats provide 21.6 inches of width and 74 inches of pitch.
The forward cabin has three rows of six seats (rows 7 – 9) and a fourth row of four seats (row 10).
Seats in row 10 will offer you a bit more privacy from the rest of the cabin but will be a bit noisier due to the proximity to the galley.
Each Korean Air A380 Business Class seat is equipped with a large 15’’ IFE monitor, two personal reading lamps, two USB ports, one universal electrical outlet and a tiny privacy divider to separate the two passengers.
Storage-wise, the overhead bins above the outer seats are not as deep as the overhead bins above the center seats.
Standard roll-aboards don’t fit above the outer seats and need to be stored in the overhead bins above the center seats.
All carry-on items must be store in the overhead bins as there is no storage for personal items at the seat.
According to its seat maps, Korean has 33 to 34 inches of legroom in economy on the A380. Compared to 31 or 32 inches in most international economy classes these days, that’s a difference you can feel.
The last section of economy, rows 52-59, has 34 inches throughout according to Korean Air’s seat maps.
