They were never going to last on that route anyway. From the moment that Alaska Airlines applied for it, I knew that route was destined to lose money.

The last time KE flew the -8 into ATL was prior to March of 2017 when they flew a mix of the 747, A380 and the 777. As of right now, it is just a 777-300ER. I’m not fully sure of when they will bring back the 747-8, but I wouldn’t rule out a possible return for the summer season next year.
