I checked that there seems no skyteam airline that can issue one-way ST award ticket for less miles. I am not sure if this is correct. Or am I missing anything?

Korean Air does - "One-way bonus ticket requires 50% of round-trip mileage redemption."

China Southern does too - http://skypearl.csair.com/en/index_3-2_en.html

Vietnam Airlines has oneway awards slightly more than 50% of return - http://www.vietnamairlines.com.vn/wp...vZ0FBIS9nQSEh/

Others may chime in with others.

I know many Skyteam airlines do have the one-way award for its own flight, but is there any ST airline which has the one-way ST partner award, like BMI in the *A, or AA in Oneworld?

I know from just recent experience that Air France allows one-way booking with Delta flights through their website for half the mileage (12,500 miles) for domestic flights. But when I go to Delta and try to book one-way, they require the full 25,000 miles even though it's one segment. So, same date, same flight, roundtrip and oneway require exactly the same miles using Delta and its own miles, whereas the partner airline actually offers more flexibility!

Is this rule controlled by Skyteam or just governed by different airlines. I found that among *A, BMI is the first to provide one-way redemption option and other *A member like UA start to provide such option for its own flight and will be providing such option for all its partner flight. Should ST also doing something similar?

Something I donīt like about ST

I am a TA, and this a good example of why ST has lower value in many ways.. every time we book award tickets with one world we donīt have any issues, even if itīs one way.. with ST itīs always a problem booking third carrier tickets.. I spoke with an AM exec, and believe it or not, not all carriers show their award inventory, even between airlines!! they need to send a "blind" request and wait until the other ST carrier answers.. how can we expect to work with that?.. as a TA I can see a lot of award inventory of other alliances, but ST is like in the past 70s.. I don't understand why they just don build in their own ST web site a search engine that provides results depending on your FF program.. anyway.. it seems other are doing it much better.. I can see that with my passengers, they prefer to book CO or some *A or OW airline due to the easier way to book awards..

Plenty of availability on KLM website, classic award for 17 500 Miles + 82,07 EUR for KQ operated flights.

Thanks. A bit pricey but I guess it's worth it since buying in economy would cost $500!
