NEW: Korean - SPG partnership
« on: August 17, 2015, 11:43:36 AM »
Here

Starpoints will transfer to Korean Air SkyPass miles at a 1:1 ratio. As with all SPG transfers, members can transfer up to 79,999 Starpoints into SkyPass miles, and for every 20,000 Starpoints members transfer, they’ll a earn 5,000 bonus.

There is no minimum point transfer requirement for Platinum members, but Gold members have a minimum transfer of 1,500 Starpoints and regular members have a minimum point transfer of 2,500.

Does this have any implications for their UR partnership, or do we assume that's still good for the foreseeable future?

This seems specific to SPG being a new partner; NOT to a different program being dropped by KE.

I know that it doesn't mean anything right now, but is there any writing on the wall?

Not that it necessarily means anything, but SQ is with multiple partners now and no issue.

Just out of sheer curiosity. Is there any rhyme, or reason why airlines decide to only partner with certain point currencies over others ?
