Back in November the ability to transfer Chase points to Korean was suspended. Chase let us know that this would come back. Korean Air said transfers would return in January and indeed they came back on January 25.
So transfers were offline for two whole months.
Unfortunately Korean Air now lists as ‘temporarily unavailable’ again on the Chase Ultimate Rewards website. (HT: Pizza in Motion)
I’ve reached out to Chase to see whether this is a brief technical issue, or an ongoing relationship issue that might take longer to resolve.
In the meantime, fortunately Korean Air is generous with award holds: partner awards can generally be held 5 days, and awards on Korean Air itself can usually be held for months when making an advance booking.
And Chase is no longer the only avenue many have for Korean Air Skypass miles: Korean just became a Starwood transfer partner.
