Per One Mile at a Time, it appears that Delta is pulling all their award charts and upgrade charts from their website, to make the award booking process less transparent.

Try googling Delta Award Charts, and none of the links work. The new Delta award page is here, which says, “Once you’ve selected your itinerary and logged into your SkyMiles account, you’ll be asked to pay for the flights you selected.”

You’ll just see the following info, but NO award charts:

SkyMiles Award Travel means you can use your miles to book a flight on Delta Air Lines, all SkyTeam® Global Alliance Partners and other SkyMiles partners.

With the launch of the all-new Award calendar, it’s now easy to search for and see prices for Awards online. Search for the price of an Award like you search for airfare today. The expanded search capabilities and calendar at delta.com provide more choices and an easier-to-read and more accurate view of Award prices.

Sufficient miles within your SkyMiles account are required to redeem miles toward Award Travel. To shop for Award Travel on delta.com select ‘Book SkyMiles Award Ticket’ when initiating your flight search.  Once you’ve selected your itinerary and logged into your SkyMiles account, you’ll be asked to pay for the flights you selected.

Within and between the Continental U.S., Alaska and Canada, round-trip Award Tickets will continue to start at 25,000 miles (plus taxes and fees).

Bottom Line

Could Delta *just* be removing these award charts from their site, or is this an actual change to a revenue based award system? It doesn’t appear that prices are increasing, but now with no award chart, there’s no way to no for sure…

What are your thoughts on this latest change from Delta?

  1. Who would bother redeeming for a revenue-based scheme ? 800,000 miles for JFK-SEA-HKG roundtrip in J ? don’t even bother with your time.

  2. Would you go to a restaurant and order dinner without a menu and wait for the check to see if you can afford it? Delta’s policies are driven by their accountants which I suspect have been huffing too much Jet A exhaust on the ramp.
