On Korean Air, passengers take the cake
Let them eat cake, says Korean Air.
The Seoul-based airline hopes to sweeten the flying experience by offering free cake and cupcakes to passengers who are celebrating a wedding, honeymoon, birthday or some other special occasion during a flight.
The cake service has been offered for months to passengers in Asian markets, and Korean Air recently began promoting the complimentary pastries to U.S. passengers.
To get the onboard goodies, passengers must call a Korean Air agent at (800) 438-5000 at least 24 hours before departure. A flight attendant will present the cake or cupcake during the in-flight meal.
Passengers cannot request special flavors or messages in frosting on the cakes. The flavors and decorations vary based on the airport bakery.
