Korean Air announced plans to make its new premium seats available on more routes, with the carrier last week increasing from three to nine the number of routes offering the seats, following the scheduled delivery of B777-300ER and refurbishment of B777-200ER aircraft (, 30-Oct-2009). The new seats will be offered on long-haul business routes to the Americas, including Incheon-Los Angeles, Incheon-Washington DC and Incheon-Seattle, as well as mid-haul business destinations in China and Southeast Asia, such as Incheon-Beijing, Incheon-Shanghai, Incheon-Hong Kong and Incheon-Jakarta. Currently four Korean Air aircraft are equipped with the new premium seats -  three recently delivered B777-300ERs and a newly refurbished B777-200ER - with four more B777-200ERs scheduled to enter into service by Mar-2010, taking to eight the number of aircraft equipped with the new seats.
