I see that YQ on MU for a OW PVG-JFK is about $215. Is that how much KE is going to charge me?

Yes, remember you can't do OW on KE with partners.

Please answer yes.

Nope, that wouldn't work. You can do an OJ, but needs to arrive and depart from the same nation.
(EX: PVG/CAN would work, since they are both in China)

Seems like Delta is not allowing stopovers on Award tickets anymore

Pretty low of them to do that with zero notice.
That was the one redeeming factor of the program.

I put on hold a reservation for 2 people (me and wife) on KE out of my KE account. Can I just transfer all the miles to that account and complete the booking online? Or I have to open up a separate mileage account for the second pax and deposit the mileage in her account?

Also do they still require the fax gesheft?

Easiest way is to open an account in your wife's name and have them transfer the ressy to her account, but the 2 ressy's will be linked.

Make sure to have them add you and your wife's DOB to the ressy and you should be able to ticket it online.

So if they add the DOB will I be able to ticket it online, and will not have to go through the whole faxing thing?

Thx. I already added the DOB and Passport info when I made the reservation. If I transfer all the miles (for mre and wife) to my account will I not be able to ticket it? I see a option purchase now but I don't want to transfer all the miles if I can't do it online both together.

Do seats go back to inventory with KE once canceled? Instantly?

So I can call them and ask to split the reservation and attach my wifes ressy to her account?
