He said the A220-300s that the airline has, "perform extremely well" and "we are very pleased with it" and that "passenger reaction has been very good". Korean Air will launch A220-300 #flights to Japan at end of October. All the media who flew on the aircraft from Seoul to Jeju (the world's busiest route by far) also told me how very impressed they are with it. Personally I love it, and hope many more airlines use the aircraft in Asia Pacific. At the moment there are only four airlines operating the A220 - airBaltic, Korean Air and SWISS. Delta will start flights with the A220-100 in January. Unfortunately, Airbus did not really give any new information about the aircraft, production rates, markets, new technology during their AAPA press conference which was a little disappointing.
