Seoul: SkyTeam Business Class Starting at €1,549 from Brussels and Luxembourg

KLM 777 Business Class

The SkyTeam partners KLM & Air France have launched a good deal for flights to South Korea: Business class from Luxembourg and Brussels to Seoul and back start at €1,549. It is particularly interesting that you can sometimes fly with Korean Air.

Our availability calendar highlights all available flight dates for trips of 3 to 21 days. All you have to do is select the departure airport on the left and then the desired travel dates in the calendar. Another click forwards you to the airlines’ websites. Air France will show you slightly different options than KLM, so it’s worth checking out both sites.


When selecting the inbound leg, KLM’s website sometimes switches to Economy fares. These are only €100 cheaper than the business class fares. Make sure you select a business class inbound!

You can fly via Amsterdam or Paris. Should your route be from Brussels, the segments between Brussels and Paris will be operated by train instead of by plane.

The aircraft on the long-haul flight varies. KLM and Korean Air are most likely to use a Boeing 777, while Air France should fly you onboard an Airbus A350.

Before Covid-19, Air France still had 4 different business class versions, but now, as the A380 & A340 have left the fleet, only 3 remain. The business class in the A380 was no longer up to today’s standards, unlike the business class that’s installed in the Boeing 787-Dreamliner and Airbus A350, which is modern and comfortable. This business class is now continuously being installed in other Air France planes as well.

By now, modern seats have also become the norm at KLM. Its business class is definitely not a bad choice, also thanks to the good service. Like many other airlines, the Boeing 787 always has the newest business class seats installed.

On cannot speak of a single Korean Air business class, as there are 4 versions. The newest version has mainly been installed in the Boeing 747-8 and the A330. There, you’ll fly in a modern and comfortable seat. The special part: Even though the seats are aligned in a 2-2-2 formation, everyone still has direct access to the aisle. The seats are not right next to each other, thus creating a corridor to the window seat – a great idea for wide planes like the Jumbo! In the A380’s upper deck, you’d fly in an older business class version, but Korean Air has a bar area where you can comfortably sit on the couch drinking a cocktail. The worst business class version is still being used on less prominent routes on some older Boeing 777 planes – with a row of three in the middle and angled seats.
