Korean Air–lets go shopping!

In 2009, Korean Air foreshadowed it would be installing duty free stores on its ten new A380s. The airline is already the number one airline company in the world for in flight retailing! 
Now they have revealed the store layout. It will be located at the back of the lower deck near the rear stairs. 
The store will replace 13 economy seats. The Korean A380 will have the lowest number of seats on board out of all of the airlines flying it (see my previous Blog post on the Korean A380).

The duty free “store” is made up of five units:
  1. Video wall- video advertising space will be sold to companies
  2. Fragrances
  3. Jewellery
  4. Liquor Unit
  5. Liquor Unit

One cabin crew member will staff the shop and deliver bought goods. First Class passengers will be invited first. Then Business class passengers will be welcomed and only if there is time, economy class passengers will be welcomed. The goods on display are high priced products.
