Trying to credit my delta flights to Korean. Having a difficult time. Can anybody help explain the process?

1. Buy Delta ticket.
2. Input KE FFN into FFN field.
3. Fly flight.
4. ??
5. Profit!

I already flew and never credited the miles. Now I need to do it retroactively.

If AS is available on AA.com it should be bookable with partners like BA and Korean over the phone.
So Korean used to be a One World partner?

Shoulda started with that.

Q17 : How can I claim missing mileage?
Please mail the original boarding pass(es) along with your SKYPASS account number and the matching ticket to our SKYPASS Service Center. If you no longer have your tickets and you made your purchase with a travel agency, you may be able to obtain a copy through that agency. Mileage claim must be made within one (1) year from the travel date and you must be an enrolled member in SKYPASS program prior to travel. Please keep a photocopy of your ticket coupon(s) and boarding pass(es) for your records before mailing.

My bet is you'd still be credited. Worst comes to worst, you'll credit to AS, or DL.

And they don't have those same restrictions about being a member before travel?

I would like to fly Delta for a domestic 3 way ticket. Even though they allow a free stopover, they only have availability at 40k. My question is about UA to korean then booking delta flight with korean miles. Are there surcharges on a domestic delta flight? How many korean points will it be?

Why, they didn't let you book online?

Officially they did but the booking kept failing on the last page. The space disappeared after a couple of tries but turns out that it was being held in the account.
They made me complete the bonus ticket form and email it in in order to complete ticketing. 
At least they were nice and fairly competent.
