– Shocker – Delta has raised prices for many awards including Business Class awards to Europe by 20%-40%
This has been a long time coming and Delta Skymiles seems to be determined to raise most awards by 20% every 6 months. I have redeemed all my Delta Skymiles just a week after they posted to my account – you never know with Skymiles.
Delta wanted to switch to a fixed value of a mile of 1-1.5 cents per miles but it was rumored American Express did not let them. Now it seems both parties have agreed that the ‘waiting period’ is over – more awards will likely be devalued in the near future.
– Thank god a wide majority of travelers wants fellow passengers to wear something appropriate or be banned from a flight (especially when on a buddy pass)
