North Korean Airline Dubbed 'World's Worst' Finally Gets On Board With Online Booking
The good news is that if you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, booking on Air Koryo just got a lot easier. The Skytrax one-star rated airline is selling its flights to China and Russia online for the first time.
Although we're not sure that the website will add anything to the airline's reputation. According to the Telegraph:
What happens on a one-star airline? According to Startrax: "very poor quality performance ... with poor, inconsistent standards of ... service ... in on-board and airport environments."
Early reports seems to suggest the website is unlikely to help the North Korean flag carrier shake its one-star rating, however. Users have already reported slow response speeds, with some searches not offering any availability for flights, while others result in an error message appearing on the screen.
At present, the airline utilizes a number of planes constructed in the former Soviet Union and is the only airline rated as one-star worldwide. That said, there are 29 airlines ranked just above this dubious distinction as two-star, which include names you may have flown, including Air Zimbabwe, Bulgaria Air and Ryanair.
