I have been warning you about how much you are going to hate, and I mean HATE, Delta SNAPP once it is fully in force with no backup when really needed (and that time is just about upon us btw). Smart Delta reps hate SNAPP and are dreading this winter when there is a massive weather issue and all they can do is offer what SNAPP belches out for them. This past week I enjoyed burning some points and traveling with my wife. Since I did not want to risk me in coach and her in 1st class (or worse both of us in coach) I booked with points in 1st or business class. Now I ONLY book sales, Level 1 awards (or Level 2 if I must) and in this case I found Level 1 awards two ways. The first way was what Delta.dumb spit out via SNAPP that…
If you had not noticed, over the years, Delta has been bit by bit taking away very useful tools for us to get done what we want. When it comes to awards, we have the cursed “married segment logic” that in a nut shell takes segment by segment piecing together into one trip (see E7 posts) out of the equation on the multi-segment page on Delta.com.

Thankfully, for now, a good Delta rep can still help you in this regard you just have to do the work and then spoon feed them the flights you want. I see the day coming when that comes to an end and then we are in real trouble. But that is awards, what about today’s topic. If you have never heard…

NO – Delta is not (mostly) hiding MQMs MQDs & SkyMiles earned when booking on Delta .com – why do you ask?
