Where did you get 50K from?

Either way, it looks like it prices as two awards of 80k each.
It's 50k one way from the US to Europe in f on ke metal and ke allows a free stopover on one ways. So I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to fly through Korea to Europe from the US, on one 50k award. I assumed it would probably be too good to be true, but I might as well ask.
So does that mean that there is no way that you know of to fly on Korean from the US to Europe on a single award?

Think you are mistaking the partner chart for the travel on korean chart. The above may be true for partner but I'm not 100%.
Yes you're right, I mistook the Skyteam award chart for the award chart on Korean.  On the Skyteam chart It's 100k round trip in f, and I thought I was looking at the Korean chart and then it would be 50k one way.  Sorry guys.

How much  would it be for KE TLV-ICN-USA? In Y or J. Can't seem to find out from their site...or would this have to be booked as two awards?

If youre booking J try booking it with Delta if you have any dL points. Good value to burn them

Unless I'm doing something wrong, AS is pricing nyc-icn-tlv one way in J, at 140k.

That's correct, because it can only be booked as a RT so the price for OW is the same as RT.

Thank you for clarifying. If I'm booking nyc-icn-tlv then the way back has to be tlv-icn-nyc, or can I stopover somewhere else, on the same Rt award ?

Has to be TLV-ICN-NYC because you can't mix partners on an AS award (but you can stop in ICN for as long as you want).

KE only really has stopovers in ICN... That's their only hub.

I'm just getting familiar with this kind of booking, but I want to book 2 seats from CVG to Honolulu.  Any idea when it is actually possible to find first class fairs through Korean for 40k as Dan talked about quite some time ago?  Or is it possible?  Is there a new minimum?

I believe it is using their miles to fly DL.
