Asiana and Korean air will expand north America appearance from this summer.

Asiana:
LAX: from 12 weeklies to 2 daily from May 22. OZ201/202 with 747/74M and OZ203/204 with 772ER
JFK: from 4 weeklies to 1 daily from Aug 23. Existing 4/w with 747 and new 3/w with 772ER

Also Asiana is upgrading its 747s, currently new one (suite F, angled lie flat C, and AVOD on all classes) runs 3 out of 4/w ICN-JFK-ICN. By July, all 747s are expected to be upgraded. Angled lie flat C seats are already installed on all 772ERs. Also OZ may start CDG from March 31, 3 weeklies with 772ER. Not confirmed yet, though.

Korean air:
SFO: from June 1, 4->5 weeklies, from June 30, 1 daily. New config 772ER is running already.
DFW: from July 1, 3->4 weeklies, new config 772ER from July. (also new config is running now until late March)
LAS: 1 additional weekly flight on Monday during summer season.
ORD: expecting old config from June to August, since 744 will run on this season instead of 772ER.
(There will come more summer season flights.)

There's a very strong rumor that KE will restart GRU via LAX from March 31, 3 weeklies with 772ER. Also not confirmed yet.

Do you think that includes the 74M (747 Combis) as well?

Oh, yes. Actually the first upgrading work on 74M will start in a couple of weeks. All 747-pax and combis will be upgraded by July, as things go well as planned.

That would be awesome. Do you think the official announcement is coming in the next few days? I am assuming KE would have traffic rights between GRU and LAX, right?



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Doesn't Korean usually go daily for the summer season in San Francisco? Last year they flew the 744

(Hopefully) It will come in a few days. Also KE has full 5th right on LAX-GRU.

KE now tries to make it year-round daily service. Hope they can make enough demand against UA, SQ's dailies and OZ's 4 weeklies.

All I can say is.. It's about time! Now if they can just re-time the arrival time of the flight in ICN to easily connect to other OZ flights ex: ICN.

I am disapppinted that OZ is not increasing their service into SFO. They have been stuck on 4 flights per week for the past few years. Being in the Star alliance, I figure they could get domestic traffic from UA. They offer just as a good product as UA and SQ.

Any news on how KEs ICN-MEL services are performing? I think they started last October?
Also, any news on proposed charters to Cairns in August? Twice weekly for 5 weeks I think?

Will KE have their additional weekly service to ICN from YVR this summer. Normally they add 1 additional flight during the peak June - September period (up to 4x week up from 3x week).

Also, what about the seasonal charters to YYC. I understand they were quite disappointing last summer.

757: The last of the best

Glad to see the Asiana increase in service. The upgrades of the 747's could not come sooner as that seems to be the only negative from flyers on the carrier. Having flown recently in the old and new C seats on Asiana, they are really a fantastic product and the service is fantastic. If OZ could just add some more consistent frequencies then that would be a big plus.

I was really worried the 747 seats would be bad, but they were fine and the attentive and attention to detail from a service standpoint along with the *A lounge at LAX more than made up for the concern on the 747 C seats. I flew onto SYD on a 777 with the new C seats and it was perfect.

However, the lounge at ICN in the evening is so busy don't plan on taking a shower unless you go to the transit hotel and take one.

Regards,

Ah, yes, I was meaning to ask the same thing. Hopefully some a.netter from South Korea or Australia will have some data. By the way, is it daily service?

Didn't have my camera, of course!

Quoting Legacyins (Reply 8):

Agreed. I'd think OZ could do daily. I am also curious why they don't move back to the evening flight and let there *A partner UA operate the morning service against KE. This would give passengers more flex on departures time.
