Korean Air is launching new nonstop service between Boston and Seoul on April 12, 2019 in cooperation with joint venture partner, Delta Air Lines.
The new Boston flight, along with new Minneapolis/St. Paul-Seoul service that Delta is launching in 2019, are the first additions to the joint venture’s Seoul-Incheon network since the two carriers launched their partnership in May.
The Boston-Seoul service will be operated on Korean Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring six First Class sleeper suites, 18 Prestige business class sleeper suites, and 245 seats in economy class.
First Class features farm-to-flight meals with food grown at the airline’s own farm on Jeju Island, a 23-inch high-resolution monitor, luxurious duvet and bedding, in-flight comfort clothing by Gianfranco Ferre, and DAVI-branded amenity kits with five different luxury cosmetic products. First class customers also can enjoy the exclusive benefits of a dedicated check-in lounge and First Class lounge at Incheon Airport.
Korean Air’s Prestige Suites offer private 21-inch wide flatbed seats spaced 75 inches apart with direct aisle access. Onboard, Prestige customers enjoy Korean Air’s award-wining food and wine program and a premium DAVI amenity kit.
Meanwhile, Korean Air’s economy class is among the industry’s most comfortable, with 33-34 inches between seats, a 10.6-inch high-resolution personal monitor and a variety of meal options.
With the launch of Boston and Minneapolis/St. Paul, Korean Air and Delta will offer up to 29 flights a day between 14 gateways in the U.S. and Asia. From Korea alone, the joint venture partners will offer over 115 weekly flights to 13 U.S. destinations, an increase of over 10% from summer 2018. By combining both airlines’ schedules, customers have matchless travel options while enjoying improved reciprocal frequent flier benefits.
