Hey everyone, so I go to college in Atlanta, and my parents live in Oklahoma so for a reason i wont go into one weekend i had to drive to Oklahoma and then back to Atlanta. On the trip back my mother decided to drive with me to visit her sister in Raleigh, and then fly back to Oklahoma City from there. So i went onto Delta.com and booked her the one-way flight, and because im a FF member it automatically puts in my skymiles number and all that, and i changed all the names for the ticket but forgot to get rid of the skymiles number. I just figured that they wouldnt give me the miles cause i personally didnt fly the flight, but i checked online about my current flight to California and i see that i had indeed gotten those 2kish miles (1200 for the flight, 500 as a website booking bonus) for her flight from RDU-OKC. Now i am wondering is this a normal occurance, or did the Delta computer just screw up and theyll audit my miles or something some later time in the future? Thanks much!
(i am wondering cause i am going to be booking a friend a flight to ATL and i might want to get those miles from her flight as well )
