THE FLIGHT TO QUALITY

This article describes how Korean Airlines (KAL) intends to join the ranks of the top ten airlines in the world in terms of service quality and passenger business by 2010. Along with an interview of KAL’s chairman and CEO Yang-Ho Cho, the article includes an analysis of the airline’s financial picture, its strong passenger and cargo growth rates, and its expansion plans for Incheon International Airport.
