Korean Air Fleet Boeing 747-8i Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Korean Air operates 10 passenger aircraft Boeing 747-8i.

The Boeing 747-8 is a wide-body jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

It was officially announced in 2005. The 747-8 is the third generation of the 747, with a lengthened fuselage, redesigned wings, new engines, and improved efficiency.

Similar with the older Boeing 747-400, Korean Air also configured this aircraft with First Class, Prestige Business Class, and Economy Class.

The first 747-8 Intercontinental was delivered to Lufthansa on May 5, 2012, and began operating the version on flights from Frankfurt to Washington, D.C., on June 1, 2012.

Korean Air Fleet Boeing 747-8i Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

Korean Air’s B747-8I aircraft is equipped with 368 seats and offers three classes of service: First, Prestige, and Economy.

First Class seats are open suite flat bed seats, Prestige Class also features flat bed seats.

Seats in First Class are Kosmo flat bed suites and seats in Prestige Class are Prestige Sleeper flat bed seats.

All seats in this aircraft are fitted with AVOD entertainment and in-seat power ports.

The Korean Air First Class cabin is located in the nose of the Boeing 747-8.

The First Class cabin is configured with only 6 seats in a 1 x 1 layout but unlike on their Airbus A380s, there is no onboard bar or communal social area.

This aircraft features Korean Air’s new Kosmo 2.0 First Class Suites.

These fully enclosed suites are spacious, have a ton of storage spaces and offer an incredible amount of privacy.

The suites themselves are elegantly designed but the cabin as a whole feels a little sterile and boring.

Other than their Tiffany Blue upholstery, there are no design elements or pops of color to showcase this beautiful cabin.

But with only 6 suites and no overhead bins in the First Class cabin, the entire space feels very exclusive, private and incredibly spacious.

Each individual suite features a large, personal locker with enough storage room for your carry-on luggage, personal items, clothes and everything else.

You can also store carry-on items underneath the ottoman and your personal items such as your laptops, tablets, cell phones and eyeglasses can be secured in any of the storage bins at the seat.

Suites in row 1 are smaller than the other suites and do not have personal lockers. Instead, they share a closet in between the two suites.

The Korean Air 747-8 Kosmo 2.0 suites are smartly designed and feature several sources of ambient lighting to provide a calming space to rest, relax and work, a personal air vent to provide better temperature control and a fixed tray with an edged lip to keep your cell phone handy.

The seats are massive and offer a whopping 83 inches of pitch.

The seats are soft and comfortable and the individual parts of the seat can be controlled to allow for maximum comfort and relaxation.

Quick seat controls are located on the armrest and more specific controls can be found underneath the remote control cover.

The tray table folds out from the side and is large and sturdy enough for two people to dine together.

However, the tray table is fixed and cannot be pushed back and forth.

Instead of pulling the tray table closer to you, you actually move your seat forward to the tray table.

And since the tray table is immovable, it makes it a little hard to get in and out of your seat when the tray table is out.

Another design flaw of the Kosmo 2.0 suite is the poor placement of the electrical outlet.

The electrical outlet is located underneath the ottoman and is not anywhere near the seat itself.

There are two lavatories located behind the First Class cabin.

The lavatories are more spacious than standard lavatories and have a separate seat for changing.

A Jurlique branded bottle of lotion, mouthwash and shaving kits are provided for use during flight.

The main Business Class Cabin is located behind the First Class Cabin with 26 seats in a 2 x 2 x 2 layout.

These new Korean Air 747-8 Business Class seats offer a ton of privacy and direct-aisle access for all passengers.

They seem to be pretty spacious and are a huge improvement over their current Business Class seats.

The seats along the left and right sides of the aircraft are staggered from each other to provide increased privacy and direct-aisle access for all passengers.

These seats are great for solo travelers and I would recommend them if you are traveling by yourself.

The center row of seats are adjacent to each other but have a full length, privacy divider to separate the two seats.

These seats are great for couples traveling together but are still private enough for solo travelers.

Upstairs in the hump, there are 22 Business Class seats in a staggered 2 x 2 layout.

The upper deck of the Boeing 747-8s have been significantly improved over the Boeing 747-400s.

The cabin is longer and more spacious and the overhead bins have been improved to fit larger bags.

Window seat passengers still have the benefit of large side bins along the windows.
