Korean Air has announced that, effective 29 October 2018, the carrier will use Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners for 269 passengers in a three-class seating configuration to service its route connecting Prague with Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Flights will still be offered three times a week during the winter schedule – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, Prague's Václav Havel Airport informed.
The construction of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is completely different from that of common passenger aircraft. Dreamliners are the first commercial aircraft with an airframe constructed of lightweight carbon fibre composite material. Thanks to their lower weight, the aircraft use 20% less fuel and produce 20% fewer emissions than the same category aircraft. The biggest difference is probably noted by passengers in flight. The interior uses the latest LED lighting technology which changes based on the time of the day and the environment around the aircraft. Windows are 78% larger than the windows of other types of aircraft and there are no plastic blinds. Every window is equipped with a dimming button with five different settings.
