Fees for Award Travel

Award travel is subject to government-imposed taxes and fees and carrier-imposed charges which will cost $11.20 round-trip for travel in the economy class and Comfort+ cabins between the contiguous 48 United States and 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.

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.

This offer cannot be transferred.

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 or Delta Comfort+ premium economy class service in place of Delta One. Please check the itinerary for details and class of service.


A typical award ticket between the 48 continuous United States and Hawaii used to cost a minimum of 45,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist; so this sale is fairly reasonable — if you can take advantage of the 35,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles…

…but the minimum amount of SkyMiles to be redeemed from some cities — such as Atlanta, surprise surprise — is as high as 75,000 SkyMiles round trip. To that, I say a resounding “no, thank you.”
