Delta: Worthless Skymiles

Hey guys,
I've been a long time Delta loyalist until recently. Being on the east coast I have always found them to be convenient. Further, I've always thought they had nice people working for them. I've recently had a dramatic shift in loyalty. I will choose to fly other carriers when possible due to the crap Skymiles program they run. It seems next to IMPOSSIBLE to get a 25K round trip super saver award ticket these days with them. I realize other carriers are getting complaints about this, but I can tell you that I've found Delta has even less 25K trips available. As upgrades become even more rare, do you think Delta should just look into cutting its program all together?
Any others experience this?

I've used my miles to get a sweet trip this summer, so then why should skymiles be taken out like you say?

So just because you are one person that's whining about the program, why should the rest of us suffer? Just take your whining somewhere else and fly them...everyone has reasons as to why they choose their air carriers, use this one as your reason.

I used skymiles for a trip to Denver last spring, no problems at all.

All depends on what's available and when, same as the ultra-low LUT fares.

You could also use 'em to buy CRC access, or any of the other redemption options they have ...

I work with this daily ... and Delta, followed by Continental are the two most difficult to obtain 25k award or any sort of Europe award - because they have the market wrapped up. They have given you more opportunities to earn mileage, e.g. bonus offers, credit card miles, etc. So they think they are justified in only offering inventory for the 50k mile awards. American AAdvantage IMO offers more opportunities for 25k and upgrades. Don't work with UA that much so don't know about them.

My problem with Delta Skymiles and CAL Onepass is they tout these programs so heavily and give the impression that you can just 'go everywhere for free' - not so at all - then your free ticket has $40 to $90 in taxes, processing fees attached, late fees...etc.etc.

If the airlines did lay off all their frequent flyer support personnel, eliminate the 800's to such, stop touting something that just ticks consumers off - they might could lower operating cost - but I don't see a single one willing to risk the potential loss of brand loyalty. They do need to simplify the programs however.

Yes I have a bias in that I am a loyal Delta flier and have used miles many times and have never run into any problems. Again, I am saying that if you are going to whine, then you have alternatives to use, especially if you are located in NY. No one is forcing you to use Delta. My only point is to take another carrier if you don't like their program and not to suggest the demise of the skymiles program just because you don't like it.

I have used them many times as well. Make no mistake, I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm using this forum, to voice my opinion. I am simply pointing out that Delta's program has fallen off compared to many others. This fall off has caused me to shift. Please just remember, I'm not alone in this feeling. I honestly hope DL pulls through their financial dire straights. But it doesn't look good on many accounts.

I think Delta's program is really no different from any of the other major carriers. It's very hit or miss! I've been able to get some excellent trips using Skysavers. For example, just this past month on Thanksgiving week, I flew from TPA-ATL-PWM on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and back home on Sunday after Thanksgiving using Skysavers (two of the busiest travel days of the year) yet I tried recently to do this same route for next April and May and could not get Skysavers. I checked USAirways, Northwest, and Continental for the days I was looking for, and no one had anything.

My best advise is to book either very early (as I did for the Thanksgiving trip) or book very late.

If you want to do a little comparison shopping, go to Continentals web site. You can access their Frequent Flyer seats without having a OnePass number, plus their site shows you what's available for the whole month you're searching. Keep in mind that they are a Delta partner and you may be able to use Skymiles on CO. One thing I have found out though, is just because it's available on CO, does not mean DL will be able to get it for you. I found an available seat on CO, but when I called DL was not able to give me the seat, however, they offered another option that had two connections, but I was fine with that!

I know it can get very frustrating, but in my experience DL is actually better than most in regarding free travel.

Best of luck to You!

If Continental gives you such an impression, I suggest you read more carefully.

http://www.continental.com/onepass/enroll/overview.asp doesn't say anything about free. I don't think I've ever seen them use the word "free" in conjunction with OnePass, at least in print. On the aircraft, though, the FA gives the obligatory pitch for OnePass right after liftoff, and I will listen more closely to see if they use "free."

You're right, though: it's supremely easy to earn miles on Continental. When I knew I would be flying between CMH and ATL weekly, I reevaluated the FF programs to see if DL would be a good choice. At the time, I could fly 50 round trips between CMH and ATL and collect very few miles and nearly no status. It's their choice to tie mileage to fare class; it's my choice to pick a FF program that rewards segments as well as length of trip.

And why should any airline have to pay the taxes for you?

Of course, you are voicing your opinion and that is why you're here. I welcome your opinion and wanted to read it, that is the only way we can expand our minds. The one thing is that you suggested the cutting of the program altogether and that is why I have stepped in and what I am against. Again, I welcome your opinion as to why you have problems with the Skymiles program.

I agree .... I have not had much luck.... DL cut it's service to ANC drastically these past few years and I think they are down to one flight a day.... and you can forget getting a mileage award ticket or an upgrade out of them these days....

Yes. Dumping its FF program would do wonders for Delta's recovery program. The true costs of legacy FF programs (somewhere between the stratosphere and ionosphere) are for another topic, which in fact was covered rather extensively in the recent past in this forum.

Like it or not, legacy FF programs have become high cost bait-and-switch boondoggles that continue for one reason only: the self-perpetuating myth the legacies have fallen for which is that the competition will eat their proverebial lunch if they do not maintain hopelessly convoluted FF pograms that overpromise and underdeliver, creating still more cynicism toward the legacies.

I can concur that it is very difficult to get skysaver tickets. They will happily tell you that you have to book early but even at the 331 day limit you will often find no inventory. One of the reps told me I had "no chance" of finding two skysaver seats because there was only one seat allocated on that flight.

I have since cancelled my Skymiles card and have seriously reduced my use of Delta, so I have been using up my skymiles on Skychoice seats. Each of my trips to Hawaii cost 140K miles. Once this winter's trips to Florida are done, I should have just enough miles for one more trip out to paradise before I am done with Delta.

Gee. The airline is cutting back on routes; seats are dissappearing. The airline needs money, so they are offering less award seating per flight. Try booking more in advance. And as others have said; stop bitching.

I don't think you got the original point of the forum. If I understand correct, Micstatic already has the 25K miles in his FF account, yet DL is refusing to let him redeem them claiming blackouts, etc....

Micstatic: Although I haven't experienced such irrationality from Delta, you do have to realize that the company is struggling and that it would obviously rather give tickets that are being paid for over honoring miles in its frequent flyer program. It also depends on which day you wanted to redeem those miles, ie. if you were intending on flying couple days before Christmas or New Year's, that may be a little bit more difficult. Try to work around their schedule, I'm sure they'll be happy to accomodate you. Otherwise, just save up the miles so you can actually go to Europe or Asia for free! Another option you may choose to elect is flying one of Delta's partners, like CO or NW, they do honor Delta miles. Happy Holidays  Cool

I sure would love to buy some of those miles off of you guys! Personally I have never had a problem but I booked far enough in advance to get them. The grass sure looks greener on the other side of the fence but I think you'll find just as many issues elsewhere.

I got the post just fine...all Im saying is if he doesn't like the program, then fly someone else, not to suggest the deletion of the skymiles program as a whole, which questioned a a suggestion at the end of his initial post.

Worthless as you find DL to be in finding flights for 25K, at which other legacy airline(s) will you not find the same story?

The point is that Delta aggressively promotes how great their FF program is. Upgrades, free 25K miles tickets, ect.

Except when you want to use these things, they are not available.

I wouldn't for the minute suggest Delta drop it's FF program. It would be instantly uncompetitive against the other legacy carriers. I am saying that they should put the resources into the program if they are going to promote it as heavily as they do.
