Airlines typically gouge its customers for flying one way. They tack on an even more egregious percentage when your trying fly one way in a premium cabin. It’s not everyday that we see fares this low one way or round trip. If you’re looking to book an amazing deal for lie flat seats, you should act quickly as this deal disappears soon.
What makes this deal even crazier is that you can currently book a one way economy ticket from $874, so for as little as $200 more you can go from a 3-3-3 economy class seat to a fully flat United 2-2-2 business class seat. For an extra $350 you can fly in the Delta One Suites in a 1-2-1 configuration.

It appears that you can book flights in the Delta One Suite through Korean Air meaning that if you credited those miles back to Delta you would earn 200% redeemable miles, 150% medallion qualifying miles, and 40% medallion qualifying dollars based on the distance of the flights. Be sure to check out Sam’s recent review of the Delta One Suite. Be careful which flights you select with Korean as some of the options will put you on Korean Airlines metal instead Delta.
For flights on United and American they do not appear to be bookable through other partners, limiting their earnings potential. Regardless this is still an amazing deal!
For those of you questioning what you can do with a one way fare, they can be super valuable if you are able to find a one way saver award ticket or if you are trying to avoid high taxes and fees on some award tickets from specific departure cities. Another fun idea for this fare would be to split this fare up into 2 different trips. Your departure must happen before November but you could schedule the return flight till the end of the bookable schedule and use miles for 2 flights in the middle. Korea is a super easy jumping off point for travel elsewhere in Asia.
