If I booked a RT with Korean for JFK-OGG-JFK on Delta, can I add an LAX so my routing would look like: JFK-OGG-JFK (stopover)-LAX? Trying to utilize the free stopover but it wouldn't work on their website

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

This thread is for skyteam, since you are looking for United you should be posting in the Star Alliance thread.

Delta stopover rules question. Arriving from UK into US, can I add on a domestic segment the next day (under 24 hours)?
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

I'm trying to book the following:

ORD>JFK>SVO>TLV>ORD

A few questions:

  • This is a legal routing with Korean, see attached screenshot. Does Flying Blue allow this?
  • Delta prices this out at 60,000 when mixing a domestic Delta flight and Aeroflot flights. Does Flying Blue allow mixed partner awards?
  • Does Korean allow one way partner awards?
  • When I search Korean's site for business they say that it's not available. Delta shows both Delta and Aeroflot segments available in business. PUTPAC?
