New York City is one of the most competitive U.S. airport markets for several reasons. It’s home to three major airports New York’s John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, and Newark. Both JFK and LGA are slot restricted, meaning airlines can only offers so many flights to/from those airports, and Newark doesn’t have any more gates.
To say it’s competitive in NYC is an understatement, which is why we’ve seen NYC specific promotions occasionally. Delta Air Lines has launched a new promotion for New York City SkyMiles members, where you can earn 10,000 SkyMiles if you book and fly three roundtrip flights between NYC and anywhere before May 28, 2019.
To get started, be sure to register for this promotion prior to booking your flights. If successful, bonus miles will post to your account
It’s nice to see Delta offer a promotion for their NYC travelers, however what I don’t like is that previously booked flights aren’t eligible. When hotels offer promotions typically previous booked stays would count.
Additionally, 10,000 SkyMiles is worth around $100, so I wouldn’t go out of my way in order to earn this. Now if it were 10,000 bonus Medallion miles that would have been another thing.
If you are looking for more ways to earn Delta miles, consider the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express, The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express.
