Remember the Korean Air A380 with the on-board duty-free shop? Well, turns out they've also decided, in conjunction with co-sponsor Absolut, to stick a bar in there. Actually, three bars.
That's right, an unspecified portion of their new A380 jumbo airliners will feature three "Celestial Bars," two in Business Class and one in First Class. Amazingly, the two bars in Business Class will be self-service. I guess that will be okay... I mean, most people who like to drink alcohol usually know when to stop, right? I'm sure it will be fine.
The First Class bar will have a bartender—sorry, mixologist—who'll presumably stand back there wiping glasses or looking at your long face and saying "So what's her name, pal?" while pouring you a double. And since there's some measure of oversight here, I guess if you want to do shots with the pilots you'll have to sneak them back to the Business Class bar.
Unsurprisingly, passengers in coach will not be permitted access to the bars. But I think that on long flights, coach flyers should be allowed to apply to the bars for jobs working as bouncers, busboys or cocktail waitresses.
