In a post on Flyertalk today, DwayneSkyMiles Delta Air Lines Company Representative, announced the additional changes to the program.
There are few times info like this has any upside. The last round of changes at least came with the assurance that after 01JUNE2014 full flat seats would be on all international flights. There are no upsides to this one.
If you take a look at the “new” old list, compared to the “new-new” list, you can see the highlighted boxes for a quick overview of the ones that have been changed since the last round of devaluations.
The ones that will affect so many of us are the jump in saver business class seats from 8-11% and 9% for standard and 7% for peak awards. Hawaii was hit HARD with saver Economy jumping by 13% and business class from 6-10%.
The highest jump will be to South Asian Subcontinent business saver awards jumping a MASSIVE 17%!
If there is one positive we can take away, and it is only a good because it could be worse, Delta did NOT make a radical change to their Skyteam partners like United did. But then again, it is all but impossible to find seats on Air France now and KLM & Alitalia are challenging to find space with. Earn and burn everyone. As fast as we can. I have said it before and nothing has changed; points are not like fine wine and do NOT get better with age! – René
