From July 4, Korean Air will upgrade the frequencies from seven per week to nine per week, with the additional services set to be operated by the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in its fleet.

This means that the service to San Francisco will be operated by a mix of Boeing 777-300ER and 787-9 aircraft, respectively.

Then, from August 21 until October 28, services will then increase to 10 flights per week.

For the Korean Air flight KE023 rotation, the flight will depart Seoul at 1600 local time and arrive in San Francisco at 1040 local time.

The return, KE024, will depart San Francisco at 1240 local time and arrive back in Incheon at 1720 local time the next day.

As for the additional flights, KE8025 will depart Incheon at 2000 local time, and arrive in San Francisco at 1420 local time.

The return, KE8026, will then depart at 2320 local time, before arriving into Incheon at 0400+2 local time.

What remains clear is that ahead of the Summer season peaking, services between Seoul and the West Coast-based airport with Korean Air are very popular.

So much so that the airline is increasing frequencies. What will be interesting is whether the airline will increase frequencies further or whether we could see a different layout for the Summer 2024 season.

For now, the ball is in the court of the airline, which will want to maximize as much from this route as possible.
