Consolidating airline miles
Qualifying flights will also count towards advancing or maintaining your tier status.
Delta may change the Sky Miles program rules, change or terminate program partners, regulations, benefits, conditions of participation or mileage levels, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice, even though changes may affect the value of mileage already accumulated.Members of each oneworld alliance airline are able to earn and redeem miles with their airline partners – so when you're ready to redeem your miles or points for a travel award, oneworld brings you more options than ever.In order to earn tier status within a oneworld airline's programme, a customer must travel a minimum number of flights operated by that airline.Delta may also modify or cancel any award, increase the mileage required for any award, modify or regulate the transferability of awards or benefits, add an unlimited number of blackout dates or limit the number of seats available to any or all destinations.Delta has the right to terminate the Sky Miles Program at any time. In the event of any mileage or financial discrepancy, the payment calculations under this Agreement shall be based upon data contained in Delta's records, and the data in Delta's records shall take precedence over the data in any other records.• Any miles transferred through this agreement may not be conveyed to persons engaged in the sale, direct or indirect, of flight miles or arranging for the sale of such miles.
Any improper usage of miles pursuant to this Agreement and the Transfer Miles Program, or any other misuse of miles, shall be grounds for immediate confiscation and forfeit of such miles, and may be grounds for the forfeiture of all miles in the Member's account and the Member's ejection from the Sky Miles Program.• Miles can be transferred in increments of 1,000 miles, with a minimum transfer of 1,000 miles.
These days, merged airlines — including American, Delta, Southwest and United — are obscenely profitable.
A year ago in this very column, I argued against the combination of American and US Airways.
I gave the "new" American a little nudge, and it refunded the fee on compassionate grounds.
Afterward, the new company typically embarks on a goodwill tour, making nice with customers like Griffin.
To make a reservation using your miles or points, or to check how many of them you will need, please ask your frequent flyer programme customer contact point.
