Star Alliance member and Qantas codeshare partner Asiana Airlines will resume daily flights between Sydney and Seoul from September 6 2015, after previously winding back services to five-times-weekly.
Using a mix of four distinct aircraft types, passengers aboard selected Boeing 777 aircraft will enjoy fully-flat beds in business class, each with direct aisle access...
... while travellers on the Airbus A330-300s and older Boeing 777-200s will instead find 'sloping sleepers' at the pointy end:
OZ602 from Sydney to Seoul is wheels-up at 9:30am to touch down in Korea at 7pm that evening. On the return OZ601 pushes back at 8:30pm for a 7:40am arrival the following morning.
Qantas Frequent Flyer members can earn both points and status credits on Asiana's Australian flights by booking their journey via Qantas on the QF flight number.
Through Virgin Australia's tie-up with Star Alliance member Singapore Airlines, Velocity members can too earn points, although not status credits, on Asiana OZ flights.
Simply provide your KrisFlyer number when booking directly with Asiana, and later convert your KrisFlyer miles into Velocity points on a 1.35:1 basis.
