Delta Miles No Longer Expire!


Delta has eliminated the need to maintain activity in order to keep their miles from expiring.

Now if only Delta miles were even half as good as any other airline’s miles…

Here’s hoping the others will match!  Continental miles don’t expire, but AA, United, and USAir all require activity every 18 months to keep miles from expiring.

It is however somewhat misleading that Delta would say in their email announcing this change that “We are proud to be the only major U.S. carrier without mileage expiration” considering that Continental has not expired anyone’s miles in the entire history of the OnePass program…

does this apply to all future miles or also to miles previously earned?


It applies to all Delta miles.



isnt life amazing. just yesterday i bought a completely unwanted subscription to extend my mileage. called delta and they expectedly said…”oh so sorry. can’t redeposit the miles.” the more things change…..



So now I have 50K MR points, 50K Delta Skymiles, 55K Continental, and 200K AA miles.

Which is the best way to get to Israel this summer? Should I burn the valuable AA, or take a one way Continental, one way Delta, or both Delta, or something else I have not thought of …



how do I get upgraded from silver to gold?


That’s life!


For more in depth questions than that you’ll be best off asking on
