Korean Air launches new first class Kosmo Suite

Korean Air launches new first class Kosmo Suite

Korean Air's new first class Kosmo Suites play the privacy card with higher partitions and sliding doors.

They'll be launched on the airline's Boeing 777-300ER jets, which will feature eight of the new suites, to be followed by newly-purchased Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, Boeing 747-8i jumbos and the Airbus A330-300.

However, the suites won't be fitted to Korean Air's Airbus A380.

Each suite gets a large 24 inch HD video screen with a handheld touchpad controller.

Earlier this year Korean Air revealed the latest generation of its Prestige Suite business class, which extends to a fully-flat bed and adopts a staggered 2-2-2 layout so that each passenger enjoys suite-like privacy along with easy access to the aisle.

The seat is 21.6 inches wide but gains an extra inch in flat bed mode, with an armrest that automatically slides down to increase bed width.

Each traveller is treated to an 18 inch HD video panel and touchpad controller.

Do the nuts come in a bowl? If not, then I'm not interested ;-)

Their F cabin might be good, but these awful PR shots are a real turn-off.  Everything about them is just so false.  As a result, I'm not interested.

Those PR shoots does not mean anything, but I can see your point.

So are they just committed to using whatever JAL's using in both F and J now? ;)

Could those pictures be any more sexist?! I guess women don't like to travel and men don't like to serve...

The cold, frosty blue is a complete turn off.  Added to bad publicity shots and it's a "no-go" from this flyer.

Bad PR shots, blue colour turn offs - come on people seriously get over yourselves and cheer up!

 I find the blue colour soothing and the PR pics a lot more realistic than some other carriers.  

I love to fly KE, and glad I won't be sitting next to some of you on my next flight.

Hi David, does first class come in 2-2-2 configuration?

The Kosmo Suites above are 1-2-1, but the first class suites on Australia flights are 2-2-2.
