/NOVOSTIVl/ Korean Air Lines Co., South Korea's national flag carrier, said Wednesday it will start reducing first class cabins on some international routes next month in a move to operate routes effectively and boost profitability. This article appeared in the Yonhap News Agency.

Airlines traditionally have three travel classes -- first, business and economy.

"The company has decided not to operate first class cabins on 27 additional routes starting June 1 due to low demand for the highest class cabins," the statement said.

In 2018, Korean Air shifted to a net loss of 186 billion won (US$160 million) from a net profit of 802 billion won a year earlier, due to hefty currency-related losses.
