Award seats on Korean Air have, over time, alternated between easy and hard to find online. Looks like we’re back to easy. Despite plenty of challenges associated with their website and award searches it seems that Delta has managed to integrate Korean Air into their systems. And there is a lot of inventory available. The Delta site shows both economy and business class award space; Delta SkyMiles cannot be used for first class awards.
Do be careful as the site will show you coach seats when doing a search for business class awards. There is a warning on the page but it wouldn’t be too hard to get confused. Plus, the warning seems to show up even when the seats are in the cabin requested. KE.X is coach and KE.O is business. I got this searching for a business award:
My last (and only) trip on Korean wasn’t one I remember all that fondly. Actually, the trip was great but the flights were not all that. Still, they seem to have decent award availability and more options are always better than fewer. Overall this is definitely a win.
