Let’s take a closer look at Korean Air’s B747-8 Intercontinental.
The new B747-8 Intercontinental is constructed with a total of 368 seats: 6 First Class (also known as Kosmo Suites 2.0), 48 Prestige Suites (22 seats on the upper deck and 26 seats on the main deck) and 314 Economy Class.
Compared to the Boeing 747-400, this new fuel-efficient aircraft has 51 additional seats, quieter engine, and newly-configured interior offering new seat designs and the latest generation IFE and Mood Light Systems.
