Experience the extraordinary and unconventional flying with Air Koryo, famously known as North Korea’s “one-star airline.” Despite its reputation for being bizarre and terrible, Air Koryo surprised Sam Chui during his exploration of their Soviet Ilyushin IL-62, Ilyushin IL-18, Tupolev 204, and Antonov 148 aircraft. Contrary to expectations, this airline offers more legroom and wider seats compared to many others. Not only that, their customer service may even rival that of well-known airlines like United or RyanAir. To top it off, complimentary food and drinks are provided for all passengers.
