To celebrate the American Airlines newest route (and hopefully make some passengers to book it as well) there is a bonus mile offer this route for travel between May 8 and August 15, 2013. You need to register for this offer using an offer code AAICN in advance of your flight. Return travel is not required. You can read more about this offer on AA’s website here.
The number of bonus miles for a return trip in first or business class is 30K, 15K in full fare economy and 5K in discounted economy.
South Korea and Seoul is definitely worth a visit or two. I have been to Seoul number of times both during the summer and winter.
It is interesting to see, how successful this route is for American Airlines. There are no oneworld carrier hub in Seoul. The two Korean carriers are associate with the SkyTeam (Korean Air) and Star Alliance (Asiana).
