Korean Air has launched a ticket booking option on its Facebook fan page. Savvy social media users can now conveniently book tickets on all Korean Air’s international flights and find the best deals available online.

In addition, from 31 May 2012 (based on ticketing date), Korean Air will convert its baggage allowance system from the previous Weight System, to Piece System, which will see an increased weight allowance in all classes of travel.

In Economy Class the free checked baggage allowance will increase from originally 20kg of total baggage to one 23kg bag; Prestige Class will increase from 30kg to two 32kg bags and First Class passengers will benefit from an increase from 40kg to three 32kg bags. Any additional baggage will be priced by item. However, for Economy Class passengers flying to the US, the rules applied will stay the same, and two free pieces of baggage can be sent free of charge. Also, members of Korean Air’s frequent flyer programs will benefit from further allowances.
