Try to book some crazy domestic routing (remember, 4 segments is the limit each way on a DL award ticket) with short layovers on the China Shouthern ticket and hope for a schedule change when you can ask DL to put you on the SEA-PEK flight so that you can travel together. DL flights can be booked online using the multi-segment search, most of the time. Good luck!
Delta award tickets are limited to 4 segments each way? That would explain my difficulty routing SAN to SGN. The closest I have gotten in LAX to HAN.
