    Lots of dates Mar-Apr, maybe later. Never posted one of these before, so forgive me if it's not worthy.

    Are those on Aseana or UA via NRT or SFO?

    Sounds interesting. Does UA go LAX-ICN? What fare class? Is it upgradeable?

    Same prices SFO or LAX, and also some through NRT (but not many more miles, and on the old-config 777).
    Unfortunately, not upgradeable. We're actually considering a W fare for $1390 - lots of NC available on the 747. Never been to Korea.

    I just booked RNO-SFO-ICN weekdays in March. $1196 a.i for W. NC9 both directions. Now K would have been $656 - very reasonable for 12,328 EQM! As Mrs. Fredd notes, SEA-ICN is costing a little more. Routing thru NRT really adds no more miles and delays your arrival into ICN until after 9 pm.

    Plus you're on an old 777 instead of the flat-bed 747

    I almost did it. DEN-SFO-ICN was pricing at $850 a/i... but I got to the seat selection page and I just couldn't do it. I don't know if I could handle that long in Y. Even Y+ gave me a shudder. Too low of a status to even think about an upgrade or op-up.
