Yesterday I shared how there were some interesting changes to Korean and Delta codeshare flights reported over at airlineroute net. The changes were interesting and had the potential to impact Delta members ability to earn MQMs on Korean flights, so I reached out to Delta for an official response. It turns out some of the issues were due to a technical error. Here is Delta’s official statement:
A technical issue affected select Delta-marketed Korean Air-operated flights resulting in the temporary removal of the Delta code from Korean Air operated non-stop flights. These flights have now been reinstated.
Delta has identified the impacted passenger records and is actively in the process of reinstating them on flights which are Delta-marketed Korean Air-operated non-stop flights operating from Incheon (ICN) to Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Seattle (SEA) and San Francisco (SFO) from August 28, 2013 through June 1, 2014.
Delta will continue to codeshare with Korean Airlines on the Incheon (ICN) to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco routes. That means Delta flyers can continue to earn MQMs on these codeshare flights by booking the Korean Airlines flight directly with Delta as a codeshare flight.

In March, Delta changed the way Skymiles members earn Medallion Qualifying Miles on partner airlines. This change slashed the MQM accrual option with Korean Airlines just as Korean Air announced it was expanding service to the US with an A380. First it was MQM accrual and now it’s codeshare agreement changes. The bright side to… continue reading
Korean Air and the Hyatt Regency Incheon have teamed up to offer international First and Business Class passengers access to the saunas at the Hyatt Regency Incheon hotel.

I really enjoyed my first flight in Korean Air Business Class last year and my second flight in Korean Air’s 777 smaller Business Class cabin was great as well. I’m a loyal Delta flyer and I flew with Korean since their ticket price was right. I actually must go with the cheapest within a few… continue reading
I entered the Korean Air 777 and turned right to towards my seat 8 J in the smaller and more intimate Prestige Class cabin. I picked the smaller cabin for the 13+ hour flight back to the states because I wanted to try something other than the larger cabin I had during my outbound flight… continue reading
After a six hour flight in Singapore Air’s regional Business Class, I had several hours relax before the long Korean Air flight back to the states.

Korean Air is expanding A380 service to Los Angeles and New York and that is good news for those of you seeking to fly on an award in Korean Air’s Business Class.

I consider Korean Air a jewel of the SkyTeam alliance. Not only does Korean Air have a good Business Class product (reviewed here), but they also have a First Class product that you can book by transferring Chase Ultimate Reward points to the Korean SkyPass program. The airline has recently announced plans to add a… continue reading
The Fullerton Bay hotel in Singapore sits on Singapore’s Marina Bay waterfront. With the city skyline behind it and the bay in front of it, the views from the rooftop bar are surreal for any first time visitor to Singapore. The hotel was ranked as the third best new business hotel in Singapore in 2012… continue reading
I was amazed after my first flight in Singapore Air Business Class from Korea to Singapore. I prepared myself for the superior service in Singapore Business Class since I normally fly domestic within the U.S., but what I wasn’t prepared for was the superior Gangnam Style Korean dance move that has taken over the internet by storm. The kid… continue reading
Korean Air has a lot more going for it than I originally thought. I didn’t realize it, but they offer Business Class award tickets from the U.S. to Europe for only 80,000 SkyPass miles. Since they are a SkyTeam carrier, this means you can redeem U.S. to Europe awards on partner carriers such as Air… continue reading
I recently flew Korean Air in Business Class and was quite impressed. As a result of the flying experience, I wanted to learn more about their program. What I found was interesting.

I had to visit the transfer desk in Seoul since I flew Korean and Singapore Air on the same ticket number. I had access to both the Korean and Asiana Business class lounges but only had time to visit one. I heard reports about how easy it is to transit through the Incheon airport so… continue reading
The boarding process was fast. Before I knew it, I was seated in Prestige Class of the Korean Air 777-300 and heading to Incheon. The process started with people that needed additional assistance. This group was followed by First Class, Prestige Class and SkyPriority all at once. I was greeted at the door and shown… continue reading
We arrived at the International Terminal departure hall and headed for the Korean Air check-in desk. There was an economy class line, a First Class line, and our Prestige Class line. The lines had no waiting times so we went straight to the desk to obtain our boarding pass. The night before we were able… continue reading
