See what I did there. Heh, heh.
For those who don’t know – I live and work here in the Atlanta Metro. So, from time to time Oh, Stewardess will feature travel news reports as it relates to the world’s busiest airport Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and our hometown airline, the sometime customer-service challenged, PR embattled, Delta Airlines.
To that end, Delta Airlines launched service to its newest destination at 1:05 PM on Saturday June 3, 2017 to Seoul-Incheon International Airport.
Delta announced it will fly Boeing 777-200 LR aircraft that will depart Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to ICN daily.
Flight time is an estimated 14 hours and 45 minutes.
Google Flights price check for round-trip travel booked today departing Wednesday June 21st reveals a price range from $1555 economy class to $7871 for first class.
In a press release via PRNewswire, the new service is to compliment Korean Air ‘s existing service between the ATL and ICN. Delta’s Triple 7 is equipped with WIFI, Personal entertainment on-demand and power ports in every seat. In Delta One, there are 37 lie-flat seats with direct aisle access; 36 seats in Delta Comfort+ and the main cabin seats 218 featuring a 9 abreast-seating layout.
You may recall, in March 2017 the two airlines announced a new partnership for what, airline executives say, will enhance customer benefits and grow the trans-Pacific network.
Some of those benefits include but not limited to;
Enhanced frequent flyer benefits, providing customers of both airlines the ability to earn and redeem miles on Delta’s SkyMiles and Korean Air’s SKYPASS programs
As always, be sure to sign up for the airline miles programs and link them to your hotel points program such as Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred to maximize your benefits.
In May, I linked my Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest Program and got the Gold/Platinum treatment during my stay at the Westin Crystal City in Arlington, VA.
