Korean Air has revealed a new first-class Kosmo Suite, adding more privacy with a sliding door and a higher partition. In a post on its blog, the airline shared plans to bring these new seats to its next generation of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, the 747-8i, 777-300ER and Airbus A330-300 aircraft. (You’ll notice a few members of Korean’s fleet missing from that list; notably the Airbus A380, which The Points Guy recently flew from Seoul to New York-JFK.)

In addition to offering passengers more privacy, the new Kosmo Suites will feature updated in-flight entertainment systems, with (slightly) larger 24-inch monitors and new handheld touch remotes. The new seat will clearly help Korean Air complete with its Star Alliance counterpart, Asiana, which already offers partition walls and sliding doors in its first-class suites.

We’re a bit bummed that the new Kosmo Suites won’t be coming to the A380, however, which is arguably Korean Air’s flagship plane. It will be available on the 777-300ER (but not the 777-200), so you might be able to snag walls and a sliding door on select flights from the US.
