seat 57J yes it is a middle seat towards the very back rows in the main cabin, but it is comfortable enough for a 6hr flight because Korean Air did not jam another 100 seats in the Airbus like some other 380 carriers did. Only fits a total 407 on the entire aircraft also thanks to the entire upper deck of Prestige Class.
The one question no one really answered was whether or not you could get to the isle if you had a window seat and the person next to you had the seat fully flat. In Prestige, upper deck. Well, the answer is only if step over the person's legs, which is doable, just awkward. ALSO, I had the isle and when the flight attendants serve the person at the window seat, it is very difficult if your seat is reclined at all. So I think it's 50/50 on which seat you get. However, the window seat does have storage boxes, which are really nice.
As is typical of my experience ,the Airbus A380 is a very comfortable and ultra quiet plane with good leg room,Korean Air overall service, and food was an excellent standard
Korean airlines have the roomiest economy seats on any transpacific flight I have taken. I only have experience on the upper level which I think feels less crowded than the lower level.
My wife and I took KE121 ICN-SYD on 10 Feb 2018. The seat itself was comfortable and we especially liked the 'eating' position for the meal services. As a bed it was fine, and a good long sleep was possible. On the downside, the arrangement for a couple who still talk to each other, was burdensome. The divider, even fully lowered, was a real barrier to conversation - as was the fixed reading light. The small shelf at the front of the cubicle, later part of the bed, was a help in conversation when used as a seat. Caveat: row 3 is immediately in front of the galley and with the crew seemingly opening and closing the storage cupboards for long periods became wearisome. Avoid this row if possible. As always, KE cabin crew were splendid.
Seat is emergency exit and has more leg room. However, it has no power plug for charging but only USB charging.
Seat was comfortable and service was great. I am 6ft and had no issues with the flat bed. The one major issue I had with the flight was how hot they keep the cabin. I brought a portable fan after reading come comments. I had to ask them to turn down the temperature and they did by .5 degrees putting the cabin at a toasty 77.5. It pretty much ruined the flight for me.
Excellent seating. Lie flat was terrific. Quiet in the back cabin. IFE was mediocre and food was not memorable. The seat and plane were like new. The bar in the back is a nice place to relax. Used miles to fly Prestige and very happy that I did. Nothing remarkable about Prestige Class although the service was very attentive.
Sat in the rear half of Prestige Class. It was very comfortable. The lie flat was as good as I've had elsewhere. The IFE was mediocre so bring a charged tablet. The bimbibap (sp?) was good. The breakfast was not very good. Very attentive service. As others have suggested the drinks are served in thimble sized glasses so ask for refills, they will gladly bring them. Unispired service, but I would fly them again. Nothing wrong, just nothing stellar.
Very comfortable seat. Slept 6+ hours comfortably in the life flat config. Quiet area of the plane. IFE is fair. Headphones are "bring your own". Food was decent and plentiful. But not special as B class should be. FAs were plentiful and attentive. Someone mentioned that the drinks are tiny. Yes, they are basically served in thimbles. Loved the A380, so quiet for being so big
This is the worst seat ever on this airplane. Any further back an i would have been seated outside the plane. In additio, with peploe sitting in 59I and J, it is virtually impossible to get out to use the toilet. I was assigned this seat by Delta air, and despite the fact that i have elite status, I personaaly feel that this is the worst seat I haver occupied. Cabin attendants virtually ignored us and the seat, by virtue of its locacatiin, makes it imposible to even try to lean on the windo. NEVER AGAIN on korea air.
I was worried about the plane being hot but it was fine. Lie flat bed was more comfy than US airlines lie flats. Impeccable service by flight crew and beautiful meal presentation. We were very impressed by Korean Air.
One of the worst business class seats. It reclines up to 170 degrees. Small for a 6,2" like me. The service on board has a mediocre food, average beverage selection and awful movie selection. Cabin crew could not be more indifferent to non-Koreans. First and last time flying this airline. For the same price there are better options. Also be aware, there is no bonus miles or qualifying miles with other Skyteam partner airlines, just base miles.
Seat 58G is almost right at the back of the aircraft. The rear compartment is smaller and quieter on the A380 and this isle seat has more leg space than the isle seats on the window sides of the aircraft which have an electronic box in the way.There is space also at the rear to stand up and walk around a little in the duty free area. In general over many Korean aircraft types they tend to provide more than pretty much everyone else I have traveled with.
This is my first time riding the A380.My seat was 51B.Although it was a "Be Aware" seat,it didn't affect me a lot.The entertainment was very good and the seat was very comortable.The childrens' meal was SUPERB,I love it!Next time when you go to Korea,remember to ride with Korean Air.
This was a great flight. I'm a huge guy at six feet two and weighing 270 pounds but found I had adequate leg room and seat width. The food was great, I went for the Korean option for lunch and didn't get a dinner choice. I loved the three cameras you could access from your screen to see where you were going and liked the Duty Free shop at the back of the plane. It was a great place to stretch my legs and look out of the windows, it's like the area at the back of the 747 where people can congregate. I managed to get six hours sleep on board and was refreshed for a three hour bus trip to my hotel and a business meeting the following morning.
If travelling Economy this is easily the best seat on Korean's Airbus 380: there is no seat ahead of it. This seat is an aisle seat in the middle and on the Seoul-New York route of approximately 14 hours, it is a blessing. Second best choice: 46E since there is no 46D. I noticed the bulkhead seats in this section had very good leg room. However, on my NYC-Seoul return flight there were squealing infants galore. The exit row leg room was enormous. Korean's service is commendable; the food is not. The toilets are spic and span.
Seat is very comfortable. when passenger in front has his seat back it is still spacious. seat has a very comfortable incline when put back. space between chair and window is great distance to rest upon with a travel pillow. never felt not even one turbulence. take off and landing are surprisingly smooth. hardly felt it. tip for all that complain about the food. ahead of time request kosher meals. you will be served first because it is already reserved for you. as soon as i walk in the plane and i am making myself comfortable i am approached confirming my special meal and if i want it heated up when served. look at the menu online and see all the choices you have and reserve ahead of time.
This seat number only has one stowage since the hatch beside the window passenger can't be opened/stowage not functional. The functional one is not the one beside you, so it will take a little more effort when reaching for some items in the stowage (like taking off seatbelt and scooting forward).
Aisle seat,Best seat ever. Right next to two restrooms and back door with full space.
