what happens after March 28th?


I am only seeing 100K one way


me too. I only see 100K????


What about business?


So Dan you finally going?


he has never been?!?! impossible!


I just reticketed an award ticket from LAX for November that had been 108k roundtrip (including the 15% Delta Platinum AmEx discount)—ended up getting 70k SkyMiles back because of this deal!


Anyone know what the rules are for Shabbos if you leave New Zealand at 3 pm on a Friday and arrive in Los Angeles the same Friday at 6 am. Is that permissible?


Delta website is glitching. It won’t accept any of my payments (CCs). I will try again after Shabbos. I will be bummed to miss this deal

As I wrote 2 weeks ago. Delta “skypesos” have many many more amazing deals than united ever has. Of course no one will avail themselves to many of delta redemptions but there are crazy good values in ECONOMY all the time (i.e. lower than the “saver rates” for high value tickets not just a last minute saver rate when a price happens to be high). AA also has these. United never does. Overall I’d MUCH rather be sitting on delta miles these days than United miles. Fact is that at present there are precisely Zero “great” United mileage spots.


NY to Auckland would be almost 20 hrs total. Wouldn’t do that in Y if you paid me


Agreed, it’s bad. But you’ll live. When frequent flyer programs started, it was often only 25% more miles to fly up front. A no-brainer. But this time is was like 10x more expensive to upgrade. It’s a no-brainer to fly coach at this differential (and how many people could even gin up the 10x?). You’ll get there the same time and, if you fly up front, you likely wouldn’t be in materially better shape when you arrive. Comfort on the trip isn’t worth 10x.


Deal is dead


Just bought a ticket for March. (I couldn’t find and dates from JFK but 44k from.LAX is still a bargain you can’t miss)

T “deal” says 37,400 round trip but I’m trying to book it now and it appears to be 37,400 one way.

Which is it?
