Korean Air has been quite silent on the VLA front despite their status of being one of the largest operators of 744s in the world. I don't think they are in any rush to replace or supplement their long-haul fleet with a massive order, but it's inevitable by the time A380 enters service. Does anyone have any idea which model KE will choose?

Depends on there needs. If they can fill a plane with 600 seats then go for the A380, but if they can not stick with teh 744s, or 74X

A380 or B747X negotiations will undergo after complete of B744F replacing plan acting currently, about 4 years after. KAL operates about 40 B744s and 16 A330s, and no A340s, it will be a good clue.

In my opinion, KAL has need for 5 to 10 A380 now, and it will keep increasing.
