Boeing 737 Max to be operated most of the world except one country

Boeing will 'very shortly' increase 737 MAX manufacturing to 38 per month.

boeing 737 max operated most world except one country : The aircraft was grounded worldwide on 13 March, 2019, after two crashes, one in Indonesia and the other in Ethiopia which killed a combined total of 346 innocent people. These back to back crashes within five months led to banned passengers from flying. Apart from the human tragedy, it was huge blow to Boeing’s business, since the company has thousands of 737 Max ordered on its books. After two years approval was given by FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) in November 2020 for the grounded aircraft to take the skies again. This action saw a number of other countries follow suit with regulators in Aviation safety agencies in the US, Brazil, Canada, Australia, the UK, the European Union and the UAE giving the go ahead for take off. This isn’t the case in China yet, the world’s second-largest market for commercial air traffic, is still prohibiting the plane from flying, however, and it hasn’t indicated when it’ll reverse course.

Airlines are now slowly adding 737 Max back into their schedules.

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air has introduced its latest business class offering, the Prestige Suites 2.0, set to make its debut aboard the airline’s new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner fleet.

This new product marks a significant upgrade from the previous Collins Apex forward-facing staggered seats, known as Prestige Suites. The Prestige Suites 2.0 is designed in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, ensuring each passenger direct aisle access and ample privacy.

The seats offer 46 inches of pitch, 21 inches of width, and can be transformed into a flat bed measuring between 78.2 and 79.2 inches. A standout feature of these seats is the inclusion of privacy doors that stand 52 inches high, offering a more secluded experience even when positioned closer to the aisle.

Tech-savvy travelers will appreciate the suite’s cutting-edge features, which include a 23.8-inch ultra-high-definition entertainment monitor, 60W USB-C charging, AC power outlets, and wireless charging capabilities.

The wireless charging pad is a notable highlight, reflecting the suite’s advanced technological integration. The layout of the Prestige Suites 2.0 comprises 10 rows of seats in a 1-2-1 arrangement, specifically rows 7-16 in the business class cabin. The cabin is flanked by lavatories and galleys at both the front and the rear, ensuring easy access for all passengers.

A striking departure from Korean Air’s traditional design, the new seats feature a bold brown color palette. This is a significant change from the airline’s iconic Morning Calm blue and bright white interiors.

The new design incorporates semi-matte deep brown side consoles with metallic tops, brushed coppery-almond cabinet doors, and textured tan interior shrouds, giving the cabin a modern and sophisticated look.
