Korean Air Orders Double-Decker Planes

Korean Air is expecting 10 A380 aircrafts by 2014, the first of which will be delivered in May 2011. The double-decker planes will be outfitted with between 400 and 450 seats.

The airline will be the first Asian line to use the aircraft on transpacific routes between the U.S. and Asia.

Initially the airline will use the aircrafts on short-haul routes, but beginning next August the aircrafts will service both the U.S. and Europe.
