Korean Air announced that it will add a second daily flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea, in May.  The airline’s current flights between the two cities operate using Airbus A380 aircraft, and the second flight will use the aircraft as well.

Korean’s A380s are equipped with 12 open suites in first class, 94 lie-flat seats in business, and 301 standard seats in economy class. First-class suites have a pitch of 83”, a bed length of 79”, and a width of 26.5”. The plane’s business-class section is located in the upper deck, with seats that have a pitch of 74” and a width of 21.6”.

Last month, the airline announced it would commence service between Houston and Seoul on May 2.  The service will operate four times a week, using Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

Korean Air currently serves 12 U.S. destinations.  The airline also operates over 200 flights daily, to 126 cities over the world.
