Asiana First Suite Class Coming to JFK…Great Award Availability!

Airline Route announced this morning that Asiana will begin 3-class B-777 service to JFK from July 22nd onwards. The 3-class 777-200ER aircraft will feature Asiana’s First Suite Class (FSC). FSC includes a completely private two-door suite, 32″ HD displays, private mini-bar, a 7 foot fully-flat bed, pajamas, and Bvlgari travel kit. You can check out the Asiana First Suite experience here.

So how is the award availability using United or US Airways miles? Excellent…if you are traveling alone! There is one seat available in first class on several dates in July and August and several days per week in September, October, and November. Of course, from ICN you can connect to destinations all over the Asia-Pacific region using Asiana or the other Star Alliance carriers.

  1. Any idea if their pulling these planes from the ORD-ICN route? I’m booked in FSC for our honeymoon in September, and I am really hoping they don’t pull the rug out from under us.

    • @Matt M – Rumor is that they are coming off one of the ICN-BKK legs, though no one is really sure. Airline should have any updates but I’ll shoot you an email if I hear anything. Enjoy your honeymoon!

      • Much, much appreciated! I’ve been pretty worried since there’s been a lot of rumors on Flyertalk of the planes on the ORD-ICN going back to the old F or even worse, 2 class.

        • Also just confirmed with a call to Asiana that my flight has been changed to the old ‘F’. I also don’t see any availability on the United website for award flights on the JFK->ICN route for that day. Looks like I might be out of luck.

    • @dave – I used the multi segment option and the entered each segment, the first segment which is displayed is for a JFK-ICN search. Let me know if that helps.

  2. I’m booked on ORD-ICN September 30th. Major bummer.

    I could try to re-route myself through JFK but I’m not sure it’s worth it. Asiana’s “old” first class is still pretty decent, right?

    For product sampling, I believe their suite can be sampled on the short ICN-NRT route as well, for another day.

  3. BenH,

    OZ’s old first is probably already far superior to UA’s so called GlobalFirst

    i have a friend who is Korean and he absolutely swears by OZ and KE.
