Korean Air to consider further 787 and A350 orders to reduce operating costs

    Korean Air president and COO Walter Cho said plans to order further Boeing 787s to replace the carrier’s existing fleet are based on operating costs and consolidation (Reuters, 19-Oct-2018). Mr Cho added: “We have too many fleet types now. Consolidating in one large order will help reduce maintenance costs and pilot training… There is a very high possibility we will expand our fleet on the 787. The 777X would be a good replacement for our current 777 generation and we are also keeping in mind the A350 as well”.
