Fees for Award Travel

Award travel is subject to government-imposed taxes and fees and carrier-imposed charges which will cost between $50.00 and $135.00 round-trip for Main Cabin and Delta One Cabin travel between the contiguous 48 United States and Alaska or Hawaii, which are your responsibility and must be paid at the time the ticket is booked. Taxes, fees, and carrier-imposed charges depend upon the itinerary. Award seats are limited and may not be available on all flights or in all markets.

Voluntary changes to award tickets after this promotion has ended may result in an increase in the cost of SkyMiles.

Other Terms and Conditions

Promotional redemption amounts are subject to availability and seats available at promotional award prices are limited. Pay with Miles tickets are not eligible for promotional redemption amounts.

Some routes may include one or more segments operated with single cabin aircraft featuring Main Cabin economy class service in place of Delta Comfort+. Please check the itinerary for details and class of service.

Summary

I still have ingrained in my mind that a typical award ticket within the 48 continuous United States should cost 25,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist. Even still, this sale is fairly reasonable — if you can take advantage of the 11,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles…
