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 will be available sometime next month.

For the first time in weeks, the weekly SkyMiles sale includes flights to or from Europe, Asia and Latin America in addition to domestic flights. This is good news, but the sale overall is not exactly the greatest one I have ever seen.

Strangely, every sale — except for the domestic sale — state that “Taxes/fees/carrier-imposed charges depend upon the itinerary, and may be up to $600 round-trip for travel between the contiguous 48 United States and Latin America and Caribbean destinations (DL-operated).” I believe that is an error.

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