Avianca & Delta Customers To Enjoy Benefits On Cod

Tue Mar 02, 2004 3:52 am

Hola/hello/hallo

Avianca/SAM and Delta Airlines announced that their customers will be able to take advantage of exciting new frequent flyer benefits.

Avianca customers can take their benefits on the BOG-Atlanta route... and beyond Atlanta to Boston,Chicago,Dallas,LA and Washington DC.

Delta customers can take their benefits on the JFK-BOG route..and JFK-Medellin, FtLauderdaale-BOG..... Miami-BOG/ Baranquilla/ Cali/ Cartagena/Medellin and Pereira route but also Santo Domingo, Rio and Buenos Aires.

For more details see the site of Delta
http://news.delta.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=9168

I could not find any info on the Summa-site.
But I think AV is still thinking ahead, even in these hard times.

Last December I took advantage of DL/AV codeshare agreement; I flew with Delta to JFK (stop in Atlanta) and came back to BOG on AV from JFK, it was a great deal since I wanted to stop in Atlanta but there were not seats available on DL but I could take the direct flight on AV as a Delta customer, it was good, also because AV gave us bussiness class seats!!!

Could it be that AV's onwers/management have already agreed to a takeover by CO and this is a sign of AV getting close to SkyTeam?
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

I think this has been around for a while.

Even after the agreement, DL moved their flight to depart a little bit later from BOG to ATL, at 9:30 rather than at 8:20 as it was initially programmed. This decision was taken in order to allow all connecting passengers in feeder flights to arrive at BOG from all over Colombia without losing their DL flight.




---------------------------------------


As a side note, I just read that Avianca is launching their new "Buy 1 round trip in business and your companion will travel free by your side".

Any person can have access to this benefit, on any DOMESTIC route, until April 30th.

Now you don't hav to worry about who's going to be seated by your side in your next business trip.

Hello SOUTHAMERICA

"Buy 1 round trip in business and your companion will travel free by your side".


Is this a new service? Or did Avianca had it before?
And yes now your sure who's traveling beside you jajajaja.
Do you think also that AV is a step nearby Skyteam as eddiedude mentioned?
