They share the same tracks, so not much room for express trains there. On the Kimpo-Incheon section they have passing shuntings at the stations. It seems the main limitation is the slow speed of the express trains, max. ca. 100 km/h.

In August, in a weekday late afternoon downpour, I took a bus from Incheon to Kwanghwamun, and it took not much more than an hour.

AirAsia X opens up door to Malaysia with cheap flights

A packed Airbus A330 pulled up to the gate at Incheon International Airport on Monday night, completing AirAsia X’s inaugural flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malasia to Seoul and ushering in a new wave of low-cost competition in Korea.

“Now everyone can fly,” said Kamarudin Bin Meranun, group deputy chief executive officer of Malaysia-based carrier AirAsia and chairman of its low cost affiliate AirAsia X. He was speaking yesterday at a press conference in Seoul to celebrate the launch of the new service.

“The unbeatable low price AirAsia X offers will no doubt allow both Malaysians and Koreans who couldn’t afford to travel between the countries a chance to do so.”

AirAsia X has helped lower fares on the route significantly, opening the door to Malaysia for more travelers. The carrier offers promotional fares for as low as 100,000 won ($89.88) each way, which is significantly lower than the 300,000 won to 500,000 won larger airlines charge. Additionally, travelers from Korea can access AirAsia’s network of flights across southeast Asia from Kuala Lumpur.

Meranun said AirAsia X chose Seoul - its 11th destination - for numerous reasons, including the rising popularity of Korean culture. The company said it has seen a positive response from customers both in Malaysia and Korea, with sales outpacing other routes by a wide margin in the first 24 hours after tickets went on sale. To date, about 40 percent of bookings for the route originate in Korea, said Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X.

Korean Air Has No Plans for Fancy Services on A380

Korean Air is slated to introduce 10 Airbus A380 aircrafts between May next year and 2014 but has no plans to introduce extravagant facilities onboard.

Emirates and Singapore Airlines are among carriers operating the A380, as is Qantas, which has grounded its fleet after an engine blew up in mid-air last week and oil leaks from the engine were discovered in several other planes.

The aircraft’s sheer size allows all manner of facilities to be installed on board. For example, Emirates has showers, and one airline plans to build a casino.

Korean Air does not want to emulate that plan since the casino facilities would be subject to the laws of every country whose airspace the A380 traverses, and this greatly complicates matters. For example, if a guest loses a lot of money and creates a commotion, he would be punished according to the laws of whichever country the plane happens to be flying over, and indeed the laws of more than one country if the commotion goes on. It is also difficult to determine which country's tax laws should be imposed on winnings.

The shower facilities, meanwhile, create a problem with water vapor. A Korean Air executive recalled the story of an airplane that carried 150 horses whose panicked breath filled the plane with water vapor, forcing it to return to Anchorage Airport. Other questions are whether it is safe for passengers to shower during sudden turbulence, and whether limits on the amount of water a plane can carry would mean that some passengers can shower but others cannot.

Emirates provides the shower option to only 14 first-class passengers and has flight attendants whose job it is to look after the shower cabin to ensure safety. Shower times are arranged before the flight.

According to a Korean Air spokesman, the flag carrier has the more modest ambition to improve comfort by increasing leg room with only 400 to 450 seats.

First Korean Air A380 Almost Ready For Flight

By Adrian Schofield

Korean Air says its preparations for the Airbus A380 are on track, as the carrier’s first four aircraft move through the final assembly process in Toulouse.

The first of the Korean A380s is waiting for its initial test flight and is then scheduled to be sent to Hamburg in November for final production processes, such as cabin installation and painting. Delivery of this first aircraft is scheduled in May, and the other three in assembly will be delivered in June, July and August.

Korean says it will initially operate the super-jumbo aircraft on short-haul routes to major cities in Japan and East Asia “to allow more passengers to experience the next-generation aircraft.” From next August, the A380 will fly regular long-haul routes to the U.S. and Europe.

The carrier has a total of 10 A380s on order. It is scheduled to have five A380s in service by the end of next year, and another five will be introduced in 2012-2014.

The aircraft will be configured with 400-450 seats. A Korean Air spokeswoman says that although the airline is in the final stages of interior design work, there is still scope for configuration adjustments.

The introduction of the A380 will increase the number of passengers from China, Japan and East Asia transferring to U.S. and European destinations, accelerating the development of Seoul as a global hub, the airline says.

Korean plans to train 120 pilots for the five A380s due next year. The carrier will send pilots to the Airbus headquarters in Toulouse in March for training, and will introduce A380 simulator equipment to the Incheon training center “in the near future.”

Training of A380 cabin crew began in May. A special course for mechanics was launched in October, and an A380 engineer has been running a theory and practical course for maintenance workers since March.

Flights to Seoul remain
By Hannah Koh

FLIGHTS to Seoul by at least two major airlines will not be disrupted despite the tension between North and South Korea.

The North shelled a South Korean island on Tuesday, leaving two South Korean marines dead.

According to a Cathay Pacific press statement and a spokesperson from Singapore Airlines (SIA), both carriers will be continuing flights to the country as per normal.

However, both airlines advise passengers to check the respective airline's website for further updates.

Both SIA and Cathay Pacific have said they will continue to monitor the situation.

S.Korea balks at new US air cargo rule on lithium batteries
22 November 2010
Agence France Presse

South Korean officials will visit Washington Tuesday to protest at proposed new rules on lithium-ion battery shipments that could cost major exporters hundreds of millions of dollars a year, the government said.

US regulators are set to toughen rules on how the batteries and devices containing them are shipped on cargo planes amid concerns the products may catch fire and cause an aircraft to crash.

The rules require shippers to treat cellphones, laptops and other popular gadgets like iPhones as hazardous materials, with the full weight of regulation and added costs coming with the new classification.

The regulations, proposed by the US Department of Transportation, are being reviewed at the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Seoul officials and industry members will visit the agency Tuesday to express opposition, the Knowledge Economy Ministry said.

Industry representatives include those from Samsung Electronics, the world's second-largest mobile handset maker, and the number three LG Electronics, said Park Young-Sam, a ministry official in charge of the matter.

"More than 4,000 air shipments of lithium-ion batteries are made every year from South Korea, but none of them has experienced any explosion," he told AFP.

The upcoming change would cost technology companies about three hundred million dollars a year to cover extra insurance and new shipping requirements, he said.

The ministry said there was no major problem with current rules imposed by the United Nations and the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

It said Japan, China and European Union have also expressed opposition to the rules, noting they are raising the issue with the World Trade Organisation.

US aviation authorities warned last month of the risks posed by lithium batteries on board aircraft, saying they may have played a role in the crash of a US cargo plane in the United Arab Emirates in September.

The United Parcel ServiceBoeing 747-400 caught fire shortly after takeoff from Dubai and crashed, killing its two crew members, on September 3.

In a safety alert for operators, the agency said the batteries are "highly flammable and capable of ignition" when they are exposed to high temperatures and existing shipping containers are not capable of resisting a lithium fire.

Korean Air named best Asian carrier for 4th year

Dec 11, 2010 (The Korea Herald - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ANN) -- Korean Air, the country's biggest carrier, said that it has been named the Best Asian Airline by the Business Traveler Magazine for a fourth straight year.

The magazine is a U.K.-based publication specializing in business travel. More than 500,000 of its readers vote each year for winners of 59 sectors including airlines, hotels and airports.

The airline said it also won two other categories: "Best Business Class to Asia" and "Best Airline Advertising Campaign" for the fifth and third straight year, respectively.

"Winning the awards years in a row is testimony to the effort Korean Air is placing in pursuit of excellence in flight," said John Jackson, Korean Air's sales and marketing director for the Americas.

"Korean Air is now North America's largest airline to Asia and we are committed to providing travelers the best in-flight entertainment, the most comfortable seats available and remarkably attentive service." Korean Air is one of the world's top 20 airlines, operating nearly 400 daily passenger flights to 114 cities in 39 countries.

Meanwhile, Asiana Airlines received awards for best flight attendants and best in-flight services from the British magazine.

The nation's second-largest carrier said its cabin crews provide a variety of in-flight entertainment for passengers and dining options including Japanese, Korean and Western dishes as well as multi-course formal dinners, to ensure the best service.

I thought the Korean A380 would have five cities not three cities or is the cities being used with double A380s each day?

South Korea’s Asiana Becomes 18th A380 Customer, with Order for Six

South Korea’s Asiana Airlines has become a new customer for the Airbus A380 super-jumbo, with a firm order for six aircraft valued at about $1.8 billion.

Deliveries of Asiana’s A380s are scheduled to begin in 2014, be completed in 2017 and Airbus says the airline plans to operate the aircraft with a premium lay-out on key routes to Europe and the United States. The carrier will make an engine selection for its Airbus A380 fleet in the near future, according to Airbus.

“With the A380 Asiana will be able to take its award-winning service to a new level, offering the very highest standards of comfort in the sky,” says Yoon Young-Doo, president and CEO of Asiana Airlines. “At the same time, the significantly reduced operating costs and fuel efficiencies afforded by the aircraft will enable us to enhance our productivity and reduce our carbon footprint. This is in line with our policy to operate one of the most modern and environmentally-friendly fleets in the world.”



“We are extremely pleased to welcome Asiana Airlines as the latest world class customer for the A380,” says John Leahy, Airbus’ chief operating officer customers. “The order is a further endorsement of the A380 as the most efficient tool to meet demand on the world’s most heavily travelled routes, especially out of the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region. With the A380 in its fleet Asiana will be able to increase its share of international traffic and reinforce its well-deserved status as one of the world’s premier carriers.”

Asiana Airlines is the first new confirmed customer for the A380 since Rιunion’s Air Austral ordered two in November 2009. Although Japan’s Skymark Airlines announced in November 2010 that it was in negotiations with Airbus to order four A380s and option two more, Skymark’s planned order is not yet listed on Airbus’ orders web page. Skymark said it planned eventually to operate as many as 15 A380s.

Star Alliance member Asiana’s order is also the largest new-customer A380 order since British Airways placed a firm order for 12 of the type in 2007. However, Emirates announced a repeat order for 32 A380s at the Farnborough International Airshow in July 2010, an order which in its own right is a bigger A380 commitment than that of any other airline.

Emirates had already placed firm orders for 58 A380s and with 90 A380s now ordered is by a very long way the largest customer for the type – though Emirates has indicated it is likely to order even more A380s in coming years and has said it would like to receive its aircraft even more quickly than its contratced delivery schedule calls for.

Asiana’s A380 order is clearly designed as a head-to-head competitive response to South Korean rival Korean Air. SkyTeam-alliance member Korean Air is also an A380 customer, with 10 on order, and it is due to receive its first four aircraft in 2011, with the first delivery due in May.

Korean Air has configured its A380s to seat just 407 passengers, the lowest-density cabin lay-out for any A380 operator so far, and is dedicating the entire upper deck of each A380 as a 94-seat business-class cabin. Korean Air will provide a 12-seat first-class cabin at the front of the lower deck and 301 economy-class seats will occupy the remainder of the lower deck.

Since entering service in 2007 the A380 has recorded a fuel-burn performance that confirms it consumes less than three litres of fuel per passenger per 100 kilometres. Meanwhile, the A380′s quiet cabin and smooth flight profile have made the aircraft a favorite with passengers, with most existing A380 operators (and some competitors) publicly noting a marked “A380 effect” in which customers actively book on the A380 in preference to other aircraft types on the same routes.

According to Airbus, this “A380 effect” has resulted in higher-than-average load factors and increased profitability on A380 flights, providing airlines with a competitive advantage wherever they operate the type.

Typically seating 525 passengers in a three-class layout (though several existing operators have configured their A380s to seat fewer passengers), the A380 is capable of flying 8,300 nautical miles (15,300 kilometres) non-stop, enabling direct service from Seoul to Europe and the U.S.

Following the January 6 announcement of Asiana Airlines‘ order, total firm orders for the A380 stand at 240 from 18 customers worldwide.

First routes are JFK and LAX. KE also intends to use the A380 to Europe (SkyTeam hub CDG and their most premium destination FRA come to mind, maybe LHR)
