Korean Air A380 Photos
From AVING Global News Network, some sexy photos of the Korean Air A380 interior and exterior. As I mentioned in this post I believe the Boeing 787 Dreamliner will far surpass the A380 in sales, not to mention the 787 mid size airliner will be more adaptable to more airports and airline schedules. But it’s still cool to see such a marvel of engineering. Hey you can still appreciate a white elephant right? Or Titanic size ocean liner of the sky? I can’t think of an organ I wouldn’t sell to sit jump seat for just one short flight.

Korean Air(kr.koreanair.com) conducted demonstration flight of Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft. Airbus is to deliver five A380 planes to Korean Air by 2011.
“Our decision to purchase the A380 aircraft meets our strategy to reinforce Incheon Intl Airport as the strongest hub in Northeast Asia,” said Yang Ho Cho, Chairman and CEO of Korean Air. “As one of the leading airlines in Asia, our long-term fleet plan plays a significant role in this strategy.”
Meanwhile, the Airbus A380 is a double-deck, four-engined airliner manufactured by EADS from Toulouse, France. Built to the latest and most stringent certification requirements, the 555-seater A380 embodies its advanced technologies, providing 15 to 20 percent lower operating costs than the largest aircraft flying today and 10 to 15 percent more range.
