Well it’s here! “We” (well someone, not me, that is for sure) have “asked” for this! So how great is this new feature that cost us SO much to get.
The site does not look much different than before as the changes have mostly been loaded already including stuff like the change to no longer allowing stopovers and open jaw awards. So it looks the same, does it work the same?
Let’s take some real simple stuff. Can we find 50% of a round trip ticket domestic. Yep.
What about a 50% of the round trip ticket from the states to Europe? Yep that works too.
Then the NASTY (and fully expected) tax jump (in Euros so even MORE) to take your one-way 50% off a round trip ticket from Europe to the states (gosh I am so happy we asked for this) will cost you a bundle more.
Oh and do keep in mind, if you want a stopover now, you have to add another one-way ticket inside Europe.
Compare this to a round trip cost miles and tax to the two one-way tickets (and that does NOT even include the extra cost of miles and tax for the extra one-way to get a stopover).
We also have CASH & POINTS working. Anyone who does this should have their frequent flyer card taken away from them. As I talked about before, it is bordering on insanity for Delta to charge you for what should be a free ticket. The best part of the search above I did was that Delta showed coach C&P “not available” (then again 45k points for a one way is bad enough).
So we have what we have “been asking for“! We have working one-ways at HUGE extra cost and a loss of so many perks. Welcome to Skymiles2015 – #KeepDescending! – René
