The news about KE taking its A380 to LAX and JFK has been reported here before, I am sure. But I haven't seen any confirmation about which European routes will see the A380.

Now it seems that KE has decided to make Paris its first European gateway, ahead of FRA and LHR, with flights starting in September:

Even though CDG is a Skyteam hub, I am still surprised LHR is not getting the first one. To be honest though, I am fairly ignorant on the passengar traffic between the three major airports listed by the o/p. I go through CDG a sprinkling of times throughout the year, so I hope I get to see it!

I am not surprised to learn Paris will be the very first European city to get the KE A380.More than one year ago , KE was thinking at LAX and CDG first , without mentionning JFK.

Afterall do not forget Paris was the very first KE station opened in Europe in the mid 70s with 707s.
Even more , before beginning with pax , KE had opened Paris with regular 707 cargo service once a week.

I will not be surprised as well to learn Asiana will send their A380 to CDG.

Good News!
Nice Move KE! With the very comfortable configuration of their A380, it is very attractive to go through their already very nice hub @ ICN. I can't wait being in september to try it!

I'm still looking for flights to AKL in September. The A380 seems to not have been implemented into their booking systems yet. Fares are really good (€1082 CDG-ICN-AKL r/t) as well. But I'd only do it for the A380.

Their website is an utter and absolute joke though.

KE's A380 services are planned to start on September 26. Flights will initially operates three times a week and it looks as though the schedules were uploaded overnight onto the GDSs:

Hello,

KE is handled at T2E in CDG so it certainly helps that the infrastructures of the satellite terminals S3 and (eventually S4) of terminal 2E can already accomodate the A380 without any problems.



Bonjour Chef!

Why should it be LHR?
Koreans like Paris big time and an enquiry showed even for business they prefer france than the UK: LG smartphone research center for Europe has been built close to CDG for that reason btw, and Samsung has signed a deal with the French administration to make its electronics imports to the EU by air go through CDG in a preferential way.

I didn't know it had ordered the A380.
But anyway their 772ER is always full, though it's not a daily flight to CDG I think

That's a good price!!!! competition is 200€ extra minimum....except some promotion from the middle east
