North Korea's national carrier Air Koryo, which has the lowest airline rating on Skytrax, has discovered the Internet.

The state-owned company -- regarded by some as the "world's worst airline" -- recently launched a bilingual website (www.airkoryo.com.kp) to provide travelers with "easier, quicker, reliable booking and ticketing services," according to Air Koryo.

If I were flying on that plane I’d be frightened as well.The North Koreans don’t maintain their aircraft that well.

OTOH, Korea Air, the airline of the ROK (”South Korea”) is the best I've ever traveled on, by far. I just had to think of something and there were two stewardesses there to help me. And each one looked like a beauty pageant winner and nice as pie.
