Skymiles Points Traded For AAdvantage?

Fri Nov 14, 2003 2:14 am

I have unused Skymiles points, and unfortunately rarely get the chance to fly Delta. I have heard there are service where you can trade miles from one prgram for another. I am going to lose the Skymiles points for inactivity anyway, so if anyone can ofer any suggestions how I can transfer them to AAdvanatge I would be most grateful. Thanks. Kind regards,

However, these are no longer features of the SkyMiles programme and as far as I am aware, there is no way to move miles out of the SkyMiles programme anymore. You can, however, use your miles for magazine subscriptions and other discounts at:
