I reached out to Chase about the removal of Korean Air Skypass as a points-transfer partner.
For many members, Korean Air is too obscure to matter. For me, it’s essential. It’s one of my favorite transfer partners, and something that sets Chase apart from key competitors.
- First class awards have been so darned easy to get.
- There are real sweet spots in their Skyteam award chart
- They offer cheap awards to Hawaii
It’s hard to get a lot of detail over the weekend, but I reached out to Chase and did get a quick note that suggests Korean Air will return as a points transfer partner, although I wasn’t yet given a timeframe.
Chase is not currently processing point transfers to the Korean Air SKYPASS program. We will update the Ultimate Rewards Web site when the functionality returns.
So while I don’t like that it’s gone, there were some technical challenges that took these transfers off-line a couple of months ago. I don’t know the details yet behind the removal of the functionality to transfer points to Korean from the Chase website. But it sounds like this isn’t gone for good.
