Korean Air is making transatlantic travel more enjoyable than ever with the debut of its first Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental, which features an updated version of the airline’s pod-like Kosmo Suites. Each first class accommodation boasts a spacious 79-inch-long, lie-flat seat; in-flight entertainment systems; handheld touch remotes; and sliding doors that only allow visibility from the inside—giving guests privacy without feeling too confined. This third-generation 747 is the world’s longest (about 250 feet) and fastest (cruising at about 660 mph) wide-body passenger jet—providing exceptional comfort and convenience for globetrotters. Constructed from cutting-edge aluminum alloys and carbon composites that help reduce the aircraft’s weight, the jet’s fuel economy is 16-percent better than that of its predecessor. The 368-seat aircraft will be available on the Seoul, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong, and San Francisco routes. (koreanair.com)
