Yesterday I shared how there were some interesting changes to Korean and Delta codeshare flights reported over at airlineroute net. The changes were interesting and had the potential to impact Delta members ability to earn MQMs on Korean flights, so I reached out to Delta for an official response. It turns out some of the issues were due to a technical error. Here is Delta’s official statement:
A technical issue affected select Delta-marketed Korean Air-operated flights resulting in the temporary removal of the Delta code from Korean Air operated non-stop flights. These flights have now been reinstated.
Delta has identified the impacted passenger records and is actively in the process of reinstating them on flights which are Delta-marketed Korean Air-operated non-stop flights operating from Incheon (ICN) to Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Seattle (SEA) and San Francisco (SFO) from August 28, 2013 through June 1, 2014.
Delta will continue to codeshare with Korean Airlines on the Incheon (ICN) to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco routes. That means Delta flyers can continue to earn MQMs on these codeshare flights by booking the Korean Airlines flight directly with Delta as a codeshare flight.
