Korean Air Gulfstream G400 is the same model of airplane as the one golfer Tiger Woods owns, and nine of the world’s top 50 companies have that type of aircraft.
The 14-seat plane is fully equipped with satellite phones, tables, sofas, audio and video on demand, and an electricity supply for laptops.
Some of the seats can be transformed into beds for more comfortable rest. Passengers can also order in-flight meals. Korean Air’s in-flight meals have been highly evaluated, winning prizes from many international airline organizations, including the Mercury Award from the International Travel Catering Association.
Safety is also a top priority. Korean Air is one of the leading global carriers in the world, with a wide-ranging network, experienced pilots and maintenance systems that abide by strict safety standards.
Some celebrities who boarded the private jet expressed satisfaction with the carrier’s 37 years of operation know-how and services.
During the 2002 World Cup, the aircraft carried dignitaries of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), including Pele.
In November 2006, former U.S. President George H. W. Bush visited Andong, North Kyongsang Province, during his visit to Korea. He used the business jet to get from Andong to China.
During the flight, the weather was very bad, and pilots tried to steer clear of storm clouds to minimize turbulence by communicating with the Korean Air control center.
After safely and comfortably arriving in China, the former president reportedly expressed his gratitude to the pilots, calling them an “excellent crew.”
