Korean Air Around the world in Business class
Korean Air has around the world in business class for 220,000 miles. It is quite confusing even when I talk to a Korean Air representative via telephone. Do you know how the program works? especially in the area of how many stops one can make in each continents and in the part of the world Korean Air does not fly.
Cuong, your post seemed to have been missed by everyone, sorry about that.
Per the Korean Air website:
[U][B]Up to three transfers are allowed during the entire journey and two additional transfers are permitted in each Area. And up to three stopovers during the entire journey and one additional stopover in each Area are permitted. The number of stopovers will be counted into the number of transfers.
[*][U][B]Area 1: North/South America[/B][/U]
[*][U][B]Area 2 : Europe/Africa/Middle East[/B][/U]
[*][U][B]Area 3 : Asia/Oceania[/B][/U]
The website actually gives some good examples of what is allowed and what isn’t.
For instance, Seoul – Los Angeles – New York – Paris – Hong Kong – Busan is allowed.
Seoul – Los Angeles – New York – Paris – Seoul – Busan is not allowed (original city is also a stopover city).
Seoul – Los Angeles – London – New York – Paris – Seoul is not allowed (crosses the Atlantic Ocean more than once).
