New Opportunities to Earn Miles with Korean Air
American Airlines and Korean Air have made a sharing agreement for flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International and Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea. Code-sharing simply means that an airline will advertise its service and rates, but the flight is actually operated by a different airlines.
According to American Airlines’ senior vice president, the relationship is part of American’s goal of strengthening their position in Asia and winning new customers. Additionally, he says that the agreement will give current customers even more options.
Likewise, Korean Air’s senior vice president of International Affairs and Alliance, Yong Soon Park, sees the partnership to provide more options and greater service to customers. The flight will allow Korean Air customers to earn miles through their SKYPASS membership.
American began service in Korea several years ago, and has watched service grow throughout their asian market.
The new route will offer 200 business class passengers lie-flat seats, direct isle access and in-air privacy. The plan even includes a walk-up bar.
After regulation approval, flights will commence in April.
