Just had some different Questions about Seoul Dl, and Ka

When is Seoul new Inchon airport going to open?

When will delta start flying to the new airport?

From where, and what equipment will be flown to the airport?

Is it true that delta will be opening up a hub from there to otherplaces in Asia similar to Nws ops at Tokyo?

When will delta start Codesharing with Korean Air again?

For all Dl employees; what are are flight benifits with Korean? Cost, firstclass, routes etc>

Tanks a ton in advance!

I'm not a Delta employee, but last I heard the Inchon airport was scheduled to open on March 29th.

My next Korea trip is in April; I'm looking forward to seeing the new airport!

No from what i have heard, Korean Air will be handling all of the Asian destinations from America!! DL, Will start to codeshare with KE soon. Hell i thought they al ready were!!

Hope that helps.


All i can say about KE service is that it is superb and much better than Americans service.

A year ago I did hear from my travel agent, who at the time was the primary contact for Delta reservations and news, and was told that DL had plans to re-start it's service to SEL. I use to fly PDX-SEL frequently in 1998 and 1999.

KE and DL are already in the "Sky Team" alliance, which allows one to accure miles on both airlines in a single frequestn flyer programme. I believe there are already code shares.

Korean Air seems to offer really cheap fares to Asia from North America quite frequently. If you like their service, then I would take advantage of the fares. I'm sure many people can provide some trip reports regarding KE's inflight service as well as tips for making hte most of your flight.

I am not a fan of Delta, nor their inflight service either. If you prefer DL and are able to pay the fee for business elite seating, then it may be worth it.. otherwise you might want to stick with KE or another airline for that matter.

I guess you'll have ot wait and see when DL plans on flying back to Inchon, because they dont seem to tell anyone much about their plans. I have only been able to find out the same info as anyone else on this mesage about DL returning to Korea, and nothing more.

In the past DL flew MD-11's to SEL, and they also send those aircrafts to NRT and NGO at the present time. I would imagine that they would stick with MD-11's, as the 777's seem to be more viable on trans atlantic routes compared to trans pacific routes. I have also heard that hte seating on the 777's are very uncomfortable.

For more info on Inchon, pelase refer to this message thread: http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/384111/
