  1. Delta ended in-flight duty free sales on Aug 8. I’m glad I asked the Delta Sky-Club rep at JFK T-2 before boarding for IST. T-2 has a teeny tiny duty free shop (small size, big price), but since we originated in DTW, what choice did we have for some wine gifts for friends? At least I thought we could buy on board and save an additional % by paying with Delta AMEX. Not anymore.
