Summary

Delta Air Lines SkyMiles Economy class award chart 2015

Click on the economy class SkyMiles award chart — which used to exist but has since been eliminated — for an enlarged view. Source: Delta Air Lines.

A typical award ticket within the 48 continuous United States in the economy class cabin used to cost 25,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist; so portions of this sale are fairly reasonable — if you are able to take advantage of the 13,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles for economy class; or the 18,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles for Comfort +.

Frankly, there is nothing about which to get excited with this monthly sale when compared to past monthly sales offered by Delta Air Lines — and when the numerous blackout dates are included, this offer is even lamer.

Instead of redeeming 21,000 SkyMiles for a round trip flight between Atlanta and Birmingham, driving will actually take less time — and perhaps the cost for gasoline may be double the taxes I would otherwise have to pay for the ticket — and that is supposed to be a “sale” price.

Give me a break…
