Korean Air departed the first A380 flight from New York to Asia on Aug. 9. The A380 flight was the first of its kind to cross the Pacific Ocean from New York’s JFK Airport.

“Our A380 flight is a game changer for New York,” said John Jackson, Korean Air’s Americas marketing vice president. “We now offer service to Asia that no one else can meet. Our aircraft is roomier, quieter and more comfortable than any other serving the New York area.”

The aircraft is configured with fewer seats and features passenger amenities including a second-floor level for Prestige-class passengers with 94 lie-flat sleepers spaced six feet apart. Also provided are a duty-free showcase, three bars serving a range of cocktails exclusively created for Korean Air, organic eating options and California, French and Australian wine offerings.
