Nothing new. I've had DL trying to tell me to check in using the Delta app for a JL flight (JL ticket), and kept sending me stuff about it.

If you have an agent enter other airline flight under...

Yes it is the same plane. Same how CI used to have TPE-NRT-HNL.

I would suggest you book the direct ICN-HNL flight (used to be two daily, now is only one, as the other daily KE moved to its LCC...

I wouldn't quite say that. Sometimes it works, yes. And it is more reliable indeed as of late. In the past just going and searching for alternate flights would void your ticket, without any...

Definitely. In fact, it's the most valuable part. Also, DL charges no close-in booking fees (well, UA is going away with that also soon), so that is a plus as well.

What is the cpm you get for DL domestic short/mid haul flights, I'm curious? Every time I've checked, it's been pretty much around 1 cpm the last year or so, as award pricing is very much in step...

Not sure what's the big deal here. It's horrendous value to ever use DL miles for DL flights. If you want to book DL flights, book using another program miles. Likewise, use DL miles to book other ST...

Then here it is DL, yes. Just the dirty trick of not allowing pax to book logical and legal connections.

It would be possibly KE blocking it if ORD-ICN wasn't available to DL (and other ST...

That's the way it should be. IME, though, how the dumbed down and buggy system works nowadays is that it always requires that, so say you book KE flights and want to change one flight, while leaving...

That would be DL imposed, DL blocking e.g. HNL-NRT-ICN or HNL-NRT-PUS, unless HNL-NRT is on 2x to 4x more expensive DL vs KE flight 1/2.

Yes, most are 763s*, which are same as 764s just a bit smaller cabin, but the same seat and all the same issues.
(*excluding the really ancient non lie-flat 767s for the purposes of this discussion)

IME KE-KE connections show up in ICN, but not in NRT. Did you see the KE connections at NRT (only DL-KE show up in NRT, and KE-KE DL forces you to book as two separate tix)?

In other words, avoid flying DL, period.

Flying DL not on a 767 is very hard, and on many routes outright impossible.

Domestic DL, several times a year, say one round trip every 2-4 months or so. Usually the 767 via MSP or ATL (HNL-MSP/ATL-xxx).

That is indeed correct and a very valid observation. Where the connections are allowed that is for regional flights, where the SlyMiles value is, often, well below even $0.01 per mile.
