Le Club AccorHotels has launched a new bonus miles offer for Korean Air SKYPASS members.
SKYPASS members can earn triple miles for their stays that are both booked and consumed between July 11 – October 10, 2017.
Delta Air Lines and Korean Air today signed trans pacific Joint Venture (JV) that is still pending subject to regulatory approvals.
This means that airlines would expand their codesharing, share cost and revenues on JV flights and more flights between the hubs of the airlines.
For some reason the airlines in Korea still haven’t stepped up their game when it comes to running a customer friendly website with proper functionalities for even the most basic things, especially Korean Air.
It should be the easiest thing in the world to perform an online check-in, modify passenger details or process a seat assignment but Korean Air’s website doesn’t allow for any of this without issues.
Delta Air Lines and Korean Air today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create joint venture for trans-pacific travel.
Joint venture, if approved, means that the airlines would pool the revenues and costs while coordinating flights, destinations and prices.
Korean Air has been hit with their first pilot strike in 11 years after unions rejected a company proposal for pay increase, affecting flights within Asia and to the Middle East until December 31, 2016.
Even though a full scale pilot strike is prohibited by law in Korea, this will still inconvenience many travelers in the busy holiday period so it’s advised to check your schedule.
Don’t mess with a celebrity couple while becoming rowdy on the flight or you might find yourself all over the internet while being tasered, squeezed and tied up as a Korean Air passenger learned.
Smiles is the frequent flier program for the Brazilian based GOL airline, although run separately ala Aeroplan.
Smiles has had quite a few nice award “specials” over the years including the Qatar Airways first class one that we have covered here on LoyaltyLobby. Sebastian recently wrote about their Diamond Club (read more here).
Delta Air Lines made an announcement on Wednesday that they were launching a new service between Atlanta and Seoul Incheon airport in addition to the Korean Air flight already in place.
Delta will place its code on Korean Air flights between the United States and Korea, and will also codeshare other Korean Air flights within Asia.
Korean Air has announced that it will soon charge passengers penalty fees when they no-show for their flights without canceling the ticket prior to departure.
A LoyaltyLobby reader sent me a question about using GOL Smiles on Korean Air flights within Asia. The award availability seems to have disappeared.
A Korean Air Boeing 777 about to take off from Tokyo-Haneda to Seoul developed an engine fire which had had to be extinguished by the airport fire department, leading to the runway to be closed.
All 302 passengers plus 17 crew members have been evacuated over emergency slides from the aircraft onto the tarmac.
Jet Airways sent out an email to its frequent flier members about new partnership with Korean Air that will take effect on March 1, 2016.
Jet Airways JetPrivilege members can earn and use miles on flights operated by Korean Air. I would assume that the same also applies for Korean Air frequent fliers effective on the same date.
