Delta is one of the major airlines in North America. It has flights to over 300 destinations in 60 countries. The airline has a promotional program know as Sky Miles.
Delta Skymiles is a promotional program that is free to join. Once you fly with Delta Airlines you can join the SkyMiles program. You earn miles for flying and making purchases while flying. However, the SkyMiles program is more than just a promotional program it is a loyalty program.
When you fly with Delta you earn 5 miles for each dollar you spend on a Delta flight. You can earn as much as 75,000 miles per ticket. The miles gained through the SkyMiles never expire so you can save them to use years into the future. You can then use the miles to fly to over $1,000 destinations worldwide.
You can earn miles very easily through the program. You do so by entering your SkyMiles number when booking the flight. If you forget you can still earn miles by entering your SkyMiles number in 'My Trips' after you have made your booking.
If you keep flying with Delta Airlines, you will be rewarded with medallion status. Medallion status is categorized into different tiers. You earn different amounts per mile for every tier. Diamond Medallion get 11 miles for every $1, General SkyMiles members earn 5 miles for every $1 and so forth.
You can also earn Delta SkyMiles if you use the Delta SkyMiles credit card from American Express. You can earn 1 or 2 miles per every eligible dollar spent. There is also no cap on the amount of miles you can earn.
You can earn miles by flying on any of the 20 plus Delta partners including Virgin Atlantic, Air France, KLM and Aeromexico. Delta also has many hotel, car rental, ridesharing, shopping and dining partners.
Unforeseen circumstances beyond your control may lead to you changing your flight to a more suitable time. The good news is that Delta allows passengers to change flights purchased via SkyMiles subject to certain terms and conditions.
Changing an Award Ticket
Changing an Award Ticket requires that you do it at least 72 hours before the flight is planned to depart. You will also have to pay a $150 change fee which is usually disregarded for Diamond and Platinum Medallion members.
The process for changing an Award Ticket is the same as changing a refundable ticket. To change a booking made through SkyMiles, follow these steps:
1. Open the Delta website
2. Click the 'SkyMiles' tab
3. Log in to your account
4. Choose the flight that you want to alter
5. Click 'Modify Trip'
6. Tap 'Start Flight Change'
7. Select 'New Flight'
8. Proceed to change your flight
9. Check your email and ensure you get a confirmation of the flight change.
