The last “official” Delta SkyMiles award charts from 2015 are still a good tool but the numbers are way off. When the above was released there were only 5 award levels vs. the 9 we now have (eight plus flash sale awards).
What prompted this was a FlyerTalk thread and specifically user “LBJ” who took some time to tinker with Delta One transcon numbers. Take a look at the results:
Disgusting Interesting changes over the past few years. Bottom line is simply this – we need the FULL award charts to compare and if Delta will not provide them openly then it is up to us to create them. So why not make it a collaborative effort?
I have created two new Google spread sheets that anyone can edit so I would love your help to fill in the numbers and verify my work and numbers. Here are the links:
Again, anyone can open, edit and help out. Please verify what fare class / award level you are posting by checking at the final step before checkout:
(* Note – On trips with more than one segment Delta will if you can not find the same award price for each segment due to “additive pricing” price EACH LEG as it’s own one-way award ticket resulting in your paying for example segment 1 as a level 1 award and segment 2 as a level 2 award. This will balloon the cost of your ticket price)
I am really excited about this and will be spending as much time as I can on it, but with the power of thousands of readers I bet we can make short order work of this project and then also keep it up to date. Thanks in advance for helping provide what Delta should do for those of us who care about the value of our SkyMiles! – René
PS – This is a work in progress so I will update post as we go! 🙂
