Because Korean Air are members of the SkyTeam Alliance, so the miles can be exchanged for the flights of SkyTeam airlines Division, for example, Delta Air lines (DL), France Aviation (AF), China Eastern Airlines (MU), China Southern Airlines (CZ), Xiamen Airlines (MF), China Airlines (CI), Korean Air (KE) and so on.In addition, Korean Air also has its own partners: Alaska Airlines, United States airlines (AA), U.A.E. airlines (EK), Etihad Airlines (EY), GOL Airlines, Jet Airways, Hawaiian Airlines (HI).Where AA is the soy sauce, only DFW-ICN can accumulate KE AA route mileage, KE miles cannot be exchanged for AA flights.

- Flights accumulated, only the flights of SkyTeam airlines Division flies to KE accumulated mileage, although Delta and SkyTeam members, but due to the Delta and Korean relations for a long time, cumulative table are eye-watering:
SkyTeam airlines between the cumulative rate is not high, including Korean Air accumulated his hard to reach 100%, so the flight alone is difficult to accumulate a large KE mileage.
- KE mileage partners in North America had an important–Chase UR point system, if you have a Chase Sapphire or INK PLUS business card, so UR point in your hands could convert KE 1:1 range, which was the main KE mileage points advanced player sources.If you have Chase Freedom and Chase Freedom Unlimited, so your Chase Sapphire will be unleashed, UR point accumulation significantly faster, and turn through the Sapphire to KE can also quickly won KE mileage.
- Starting from last August, SPG points can also be converted into KE mileage ratio is 20K SPG points =25K KE mileage.For non-traveling party, main source of SPG points is by credit card, recent unprecedented AMEX SPG credit card 35K card Offer,3/30 due, there is a need, you may notice the next.
- US BANK to issue three Korean Air signed a card: SKYPASS Visa Signature ® Card (some people can receive three months pay 2500 40K KE mileage target offer), SkyBlue SKYPASS Visa ® Card and SKYPASS Visa Classic ® Card.In addition to target offer are not a good choice, given the US Bank had downgraded the traditional credit history is not good or prudent to apply for his family's card.
Mileage exchange rules and award tables
Korean mileage exchange rules are divided into three types: exchange their flight, and SkyTeam flights, and Alliance partner flights.The Exchange rules are as follows
- Exchange their flight: you can exchange one way and one way round trip required half one way can have a stay (stay and openings are not familiar with this article).Is this exchange table.S low season and high season, the exact date you can look at this link.Exchange 2 infant tickets required mileage for adults up to the age of 10%.
- Exchange the SkyTeam Alliance flights: to collect mileage by region, specific partitions can be seen here.Exchange one way and Exchange from the same price (so don't encourage exchange one way), allows a stay in the city and one at the end of the opening.This table is based on the North American Exchange.Cannot be redeemed for Blackout date, specific dates are available here.Exchange baby did not discount tickets, tickets must be adult.
- Canadian Alliance partner flights: you can only Exchange to and from, you can have an opening at the end.S Alaska Airlines AS,GOL,Jet Airways has a stay in the city.For each sector and Division has its own form of Exchange, this Exchange AS flight form, this is a convertible form of Hawaiian Airlines flights.
Change highlight 1: exchange their first class
Exchange their flight can be exchanged directly online, whenever you open this link and check in the following picture "Award Booking" and then a login:
Season one way Exchange is between China and 35K/62.5K/80K, high season is 52.5K/92.5K/120K.But between China and the season is not too long, the exact date you can look at this link.Off-season two tank Exchange was very conscience, especially in first class, only use Korean exchange their mileage.Korean first name Kosmo Suite, here's the latest Kosmo Suite 2.0 (image taken from the official website):
Well Kosmo Suite 2.0, including Korean new Boeing 747-8i, using this model flies including Seoul-San Francisco and Seoul-New York route.Exchange KE one-way can return free of charge for a stay in Seoul, like in Korea shopping in Korea buy buy buy, the following is an example of a travel ticket (in the Award Booking pages can be found with Multiple destination):
Says first class can only use their mileage Korean Exchange, business class and economy class, Korean partner is also a mean of each flight Korean partner on a business class and two miles in economy class tickets.So you use the Delta or Air France flight mileage for Korean dates that can be selected is greatly reduced.But if you use Korean Exchange mileage, mileage vote choice, there is a lot more, even in the four first class can be found on the 747-8i line (to know the total of six first class seats)!KE on their ticket or mileage is very generous.
The Korean mainstream mileage does not have too many miles can be exchanged for Southern Cross first class (A380 sparkling wine stems do not say) and Eastern Cross first class (77W bed!) The mileage plan, but equal to China and first class roundtrip 200K mileage +YQ, so we might as well exchange their first benefits.
Change highlight 2: redeem Delta Air lines to and from Hawaii
Exchange tables in SkyTeam districts contain considerable areas of North America, including the United States mainland and Hawaii.United States native to and from Hawaii just 25K/45K (economic/commercial).This is the most cost-effective way of Exchange on this route, especially to friends living in the northeastern United States!And Delta Air lines economy class and business class in North America is one of the best (aviation Division and Asia could not reach, of course).Note that because this is the day of conversion tables, so the standard not only for the Delta flights for Alaska Airlines flights.S Alaska Airlines to and from Hawaii needs 30K/60K (economic/commercial).You know, UA or AC Exchange native to Hawaii just business one way mileage 40K miles, round trip business 45K KE mileage to change to is quite nice.
KE a Hawaii ticket cheap, but one thing is a test of patience and perseverance, especially when relatives when you give out tickets.Following are the specific steps:
- You can go to the Delta website to check tickets, then sub-paragraph to Air France's official website confirmed votes (Air France normally does not show East Coast tickets to Hawaii, so it is best segmented look it up).

- Fill in the form and then Internet.Tickets are sold for immediate family members, but remember to make relevant certificates and relatives KE account linked to your name.Meanwhile can start turning point, UR point (click here to see more) turning points are second to, SPG points (click here to see more) about 3-5 days (depending on any weekend).Since the KE mile can hold for five days, so it can be transferred to the account before starting the next step.
- Call Korea booking service again, confirmation votes.
3 Exchange highlights: American and European business to and from
KE SkyTeam mileage exchange between the US and Europe only 50K/80K (economic/commercial), can have a stay and an open, honest degree that only Air France promotion of Exchange can match.In contrast, the UA for their flight to 60K/115K, change the Covenant is 40K/100K,ANA 55K/88K to 60K/140K,AA the off-season, Delta is the 60K/125K,AC mileage is 60K/110K.
Of course, because it is a convertible SkyTeam flights, booking common the phone booking steps.T_T, if booking for yourself, that's fine, just a step more than the AA book.Ceiling recommended by Delta and Air France official website, can be found on both sides, then Korea is to.
Change highlight 4: greater territory and from

Introduction to Chase Freedom:Chase card, card spending over the three-month $500 can now get 15K UR, add a second card, you can then get 2500 UR.Each quarter, come on, eat, Department store Amazon 5X UR point rotation, is the fastest way to accumulate UR points.Similarly bound by the 5/24 policy.
