Flight SALE! Cheap fares to and from Far East with this excellent airline...@ Air Koryo

AIR KORYO.. national carrier..

This is an amazing deal if you do a lot of flying in and around the far east.

There are some good deals to and from most Chinese cities and also Vladivostok (Russia) which range from around USD 698, including onboard food and IFE. Visas are extra cost.

Have a look at the website for more deals.

Its time limited, so be quick.

This is fantastic airline! The plane had five star food and drink, the flight attendants were all supermodels and Kim himself flew the plane. It was supreme!

Air Koryo is the state-owned national flag carrier airline of North Korea,

And the linked to website is nothing to do with Air Koryo. It appears to be a travel agent based in Ireland that happens to promote Air Koryo flights. For real travel opportunities to North Korea, book direct with the airline - which appears to be airkoryo.com.kp/

I applied for an MI5 job in London once which I sadly didn't get anyway, they asked me if I ever flew on this airline or travelled to North Korea.

I thought it was strange questions but seemed to suggest they hold info on you or something that MI5 obviously feel is unsafe if you work for them.

Air Koryo was the only one-star airline among 681 airlines rated and reviewed by the Skytrax service in 2014. [39] Air Koryo had held this rating for four years in a row.[40] Various guests also complained about the food, specifically the burger they serve, with guests stating that the burger looks unappetizing and the flyers do not have any knowledge where the meat comes from, and what it actually is.

In March 2010, Air Koryo was allowed to resume operations into the EU with their Tu-204 planes which were fitted with the necessary equipment to comply with mandatory international standards. All other Air Koryo aircraft remain banned from landing in EU airports or overflying EU airspace.

It's up to you if you want to save a few quid but i'd rather spend a little bit more and up my chances of not crashing (or getting food poisoning or eating a dog burger!)

Fair point, but this forum is purely about price not quality. So yes, go wth Emirates if you want to guarantee no crash. But if the finances are a bit tight, you can try this..

Is this airline even allowed to fly over eu airspace?

Even China is worried about the airline's air worthiness.

Wikipedia fails to appreciate the number of incident-free flights associated with this carrier. They only concentrate on the handful of mishaps and incidents. Besides, any individual can put whatever they want on wikepedia, so it's not reliable.

A separate issues - All airlines must adhere to a certain safety threshold in order to maintain their license to operate ..

Ok so maybe the inflight entertainment and food isn't all that, but apart from that, it would be considered comparable with the big names such as Singapore, Virgin and Emirates.

I'll get my coat..
