Korean Air B777-200 New Svc At JFK

Fri Feb 18, 2005 7:32 am

Did a search and could find anything on this. Looks like on 2JUL2005 KE will start using B777 on their 2nd flight ICN-JFK-ICN on Sun/Mon/Wed. Other days of the week (except Thu..no op) will be B744.

KE 85 departs ICN 1850 arrive JFK 1930
KE 86 departs JFK 0050 arrive ICN 0420 +1

It'll be nice to finally see something other than the normal B747-400 on a regular basis at JFK.

Good to see more KE at JFK. Will they still have the ICN-ANC-JFK 744 also or will that stop in July?

Looks like the last day KE 85 does ICN-ANC-JFK is 26MAR. After that it switches to nonstop.

Thanks for info, though I guess this means ANC will be down to only KE freighters again.

Yes, checking dates after 26MAR05 I don't show any passenger service on KE from ICN to/from ANC. So this 777 news is great for the JFK folks but bad for ANC guys...sorry!

Will the B777 have the new F & J cabins? Is KE standardizing the First Class, combining Premium First and First Class? I noticed their B744 have two different F-cabin plans. So KE11/KE12 remains a B744?


Thanks,

I wish I could say that about IAD or BWI  Smile

ANC will still get KE PAX service until the end of August this year. The flights will be thrice weekly, operated by A330-300, and will turn around at ANC.
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

Rafal, the last three years, KE has flown a 777-200ER to IAD daily from Mid-July to Mid-September. I haven't checked recently but I wouldn't be surprised if this happens again this year.
