I've been reading through this, since am thinking about possibly going to Korea (and maybe Japan) summer 2012. I've got about 400,000 DL miles (I guess I'm silver now but that means pretty much nothing) and can transfer another 200,000 if needed. I looked at the prices for business class tix for this summer to compare - yikes! So using miles would be great - but we have 2 kids (at the time they'll be 15 and 13) so need 4 seats.

I flew Korean Air once with my husband (in coach, JFK to the older airport in Seoul I guess) 17 years ago. I do recall it being nicer in coach than most domestic first class.

Has anyone used that "points guy" to help look for awards?

I'll start seriously looking this summer, to plan it. We can fly out of IAD, BWI and DCA to start - I think Korean flies IAD - ICN? That's almost too much to ask for - a direct flight.

How do you find out if you're on "lie flat" or almost lie flat seats?

Guess I've got work to do!
