Delta Air Lines Adds Fuel Surcharges to SkyMiles Award Tickets

The hot topic in the Delta forum on FlyerTalk is that Delta Continues to Adjust to Unprecedented Fuel Costs with Addition of Fuel Surcharge.

Delta Air Lines has announced today that effective August 15, 2008, the SkyMiles program will add a $25 surcharge for Award Travel between the 50 states and Canada and a $50 surcharge for Award Travel between the 50 states/Canada and all international destinations.

FlyerTalk members are currently debating the legality of these additional charges. Additionally, some FlyerTalk members are declaring that the days of the free award ticket are gone, while others comment that they have been gone for a long time because of government and security fees.

FlyerTalk member humanoid94 laments that The frequent flyer game is basically over. Is he correct?
