Korean Air Plans to Add North America Capacity as A380s Arrive
Mar 24, 2013 11:01 PM GMT+0800

Korean Air Lines Co., the country’s biggest carrier, plans to increase flights to the U.S. and Canada this year as it adds two more Airbus SAS A380 superjumbos to its fleet.

The carrier will add nine planes this year to its fleet, enabling more flights to Seattle, Las Vegas, Vancouver and Chicago, Woo Kee Hong, senior vice president of strategy and planning at Korean Air, said in an interview in Seoul on March 22. The company will increase services to Southeast Asia, China and Japan while not adding routes to Europe, Woo said.

Korean Air, which counts Samsung Electronics Co. as its biggest source of revenue, expects passenger demand to increase 3.9 percent this year as economic growth in the U.S. and Asia, help mask a downturn in European demand. Airlines globally will exceed last year’s earnings by about 40 percent in 2013 as travel outlook improves for the industry, the International Air Transport Association said last week.

“We see a lot of potential connecting the U.S. and Asia,” Woo said.

Korean Air plans to add more seats between Atlanta and Seoul in August, by operating the A380 plane for part of its 10 weekly flights, Woo said. The company had 146 planes on its fleet at the end of December, including six A380s and 32 Boeing Co. (BA) 777s.

First permanent A380 wing-fix nearly complete

Engineers have almost completed work on the first Airbus A380 to undergo the permanent full-life fix for the cracking problem affecting wing-rib brackets.

Around half of the 100 Airbus A380s in service are operating with a temporary fix, as individual airframes reach a cycle limit set out by European regulators.

But the European Aviation Safety Agency has already effectively approved Airbus's proposed full-life repair, and is finalising the publication of the directive which will mandate the change.

This has enabled work to begin on repairing the in-service fleet, as well as those A380s which will enter the final assembly line before Airbus has modified its wing-production process.

Lufthansa Technik will be doing the permanent fix work for several airlines at their facilities in Germany and the Philippines. The work should take around 40 to 50 days for each frame.

Can EK afford to have their A380s out of service for 40-50 days?

If you can afford to buy 90 A380s you can also afford taking them out of service for 1 and half month. And it's not like they have a choice, if they do nothing they will end up with a fleet of 31 grounded A380s.

But anyway, Airbus has reserved a nice sum for compensation payments, the airlines won't have to pay all the operational losses that are caused by fixing the A380s.

It´s fascinating that without the Qantas engine failure incident and the following intensive repair works these wing cracks wouldn´t have been noticed.

If that's the case, Manila will get to see so many A380s on a regular basis, but not for passenger service; rather, it will be for repairs. That must mean that the Philippines is a major aircraft repair and overhaul hub… I just hope that at least one airline will operate the A380 on a regular basis for passenger service, not just for maintenance and overhaul.

I'm not familiar with EK's MNL scheduling but I'll say with 90+ A380's on order they will most certainly operate on a regular service into MNL.

I excuse for the following ignorant question, but could anyone explain to me and other noobs why does an aircraft going from Toulouse directly to Thailand have to do all that circle above Switzerland and Austria instead of just cutting through Naples?

A plane can't fly anywhere and must follow some strict air lanes.
Plus the earth is not a flat map so this circle is not that shocking when you look at it.
