I guess I should have expected this after the hammering news of the price jumps for Skyclub membership and the devaluation of the +1 with Delta Reserve card or the Membership Rewards Platinum card access but I am still upset.
You see I have been saving my Skybonus points to grab a set of 4 one day Skyclub passes to give away on the blog; I love using my points this way. But also as you can see below they are not available right now anyway!
But as you can see from the 1st screen shot Delta has JUMPED the price to get them by 60%! You can no longer order 4/30,000 but now get 5/60,000 points (I guess 60% jump is better than 100%)!
Delta also did announce some test “upgrades” to the Skyclubs but time will tell what of these stick, become system wide and or have such a long wait list that getting them without say a 5 hour layover could make them all but impossible to enjoy. Sorry to be pessimistic but at least I can still get some HOOUs for 10,000 points.
So to make myself feel better I am going to give 2 HOOUs away today to a reader via Random.org. Just comment anything to cheer me up at all below on the blog today and I will pick a winner later today! – René
