Cancellations, Refunds, Changes and Transfers

Refunds are not permitted on tickets except in accordance with the cancellation policy of Delta Air Lines.

Fees may apply for downgrades or reissued tickets and itinerary changes.

Changes to award tickets must occur at least 72 hours prior to the departure time of the flight being changed. Award tickets booked within 72 hours of departure are not refundable and cannot be redeposited or reissued unless prohibited by local law or within the risk-free cancellation period. No changes will be permitted to the originating flight of award tickets booked within 72 hours; however, changes to the return are permitted if the return flight is not within 72 hours and the change is made at least 72 hours prior to flight departure. Fees apply for any changes; and taxes and fees will apply. Voluntary changes to award tickets after this promotion has ended may result in an increase in the cost of SkyMiles.

Promotional redemption amounts are subject to availability and seats available at promotional award prices are limited.

This offer cannot be transferred.

Many other terms and conditions — including the costs of taxes and baggage charges — apply to each offer. Be sure to review them prior to redeeming your SkyMiles for your flight reservations.

Summary

Do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which is currently in effect until the end of the day today, Thursday, November 15, 2018. That sale is also for seats in the premium class cabin, as you can redeem as few as 98,000 SkyMiles for round-trip flights on Delta Air Lines — plus $46.00 to $294.00 in taxes and fees — for travel between the 48 contiguous United States and the United Kingdom between Wednesday, December 24, 2018 and Sunday, May 27, 2019, when all travel must be completed

This sale may seem like it is the same, but it is actually different in a number of subtle ways. For example, the blackout dates to and from Australia are significantly fewer this week; and instead of Latin America, select destinations in the Caribbean are on sale this week.

Delta Air Lines rarely has premium seats offered during its weekly SkyMiles sales — and a long flight such as from the United States to Australia may very well be worth between 112,000 and 132,000 SkyMiles for some additional comfort and amenities.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist. This sale is very good to excellent; and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written.
