In 2014, with much controversy surrounding them, Delta released the above in what would become the 2015 award charts. Delta “said” they held back initially releasing them because they saw them as such “good news” that they wanted them to have a positive impact with the release.
Then, in a reprehensible and shockingly arrogant move they just deleted the award charts. There are many reasons why they may have made this choice and to me the most reasonable one is to hide that the award search page does not work and with no reference you can not check what is going on.
Many readers often e-mail me asking where they can find the award charts here on the blog (since I saved them before they were removed from Delta.com). I thought the most logical place would be the Essential Tab on the blog. Clearly I need a post with “just” the award charts so here is that post as a reference post. Also, before you look at the charts, take note of the breakdown on Delta.com what Level 1,2,3,4 & 5 stands for when you do searches online.
