Over the weekend Delta decided to take down all of their award charts from their website. You now need to search for a flight in order to view the mileage cost.
Delta’s Twitter minions state,
“Delta will no longer publish Award travel charts. With the launch of the all-new Award calendar, it’s now easier than ever to search for and see prices for Awards online. The expanded search capabilities and calendar at delta.com offer a flexible, easier-to-read and more accurate view of Award prices. When booking a flight, you also may quickly compare its price in miles or money. Additionally, the introduction of Miles + Cash and One-Way Awards offer even more flexibility in booking Award Travel. To learn more about Award Travel, please visit delta.com/usemiles”
Other airlines have award calendars and still manage to maintain an award chart. For whatever reason Delta doesn’t want people to know what the awards should cost. Or they want to be able to change award prices as they please without having to update their charts.
Off the top of my head the only other airline that doesn’t publish a full award chart is Delta’s Skyteam partner Air France/KLM flying Blue.
Of course the Delta online award calendar won’t help you for their numerous partners that can’t be booked online. I guess they expect you to call to find out those rates now.
And the award calendar won’t tell you if you’re getting a good deal. With the award charts you know to aim for level 1 or level 2 pricing. Without charts you’re just redeeming in the dark. Which is apparently their goal.
At any rate I’ve saved a copy of every Delta award chart, you can find them all below as they appeared on Delta.com last week. Miles required are for one-way travel.
