Korean Air Will Cease Y+ & C+ Class.

Mon Oct 02, 2006 4:50 am

Currently KE offers Y+ and C+ for some routes. Y+ is "C class seat and Y class service" while C+ is "F class seat and C class service." Y+ is about 100USD and C+ is 200USD. However, KE will gradually stop Y+ and C+ on all routes by the latest March 2007. I think KE is going to start to serve C class on tourist routes such as GUM, DPS, etc. And DFW, SFO will be also KE's F class routes.

That is really too bad. The C+ deal was quite interesting to escape the rather limited seat pitch of the old C-class configuration - around 48" only - and go for the more comfortable 60" pitch F-seats. I wonder how many of those F-seats they are actually going to sell once they discontinue the C+ program, though. This might be the first sign of the end of F-class at KE, at least on certain aircraft types and routes.

Does anyone know if KE operates a two class or a three class A330 on the ICN-BOM route? I would be more than willing to pay for C+ if it is offered on this route.

KE operates only two classes on BOM route, C and Y (and thus C+), until 03/24/07. C+ surcharge is 100USD.

So are KE going to reconfigure some aircraft to 2 class? Or why don't they introduce a true Y+?

AKL, BNE, SYD are some of the routes that use this C+ and Y+.
