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 Main Cabin travel and Delta Comfort+ travel within the contiguous 48 United States, 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.

Cancellations, Refunds, Changes, Transfers, and Other Terms and Conditions

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. Pay with Miles tickets are not eligible for promotional redemption amounts.

This offer cannot be transferred.

Summary

Since the monthly SkyMiles sales offered by Delta Air Lines first began in August of 2016, this is the first time that I have seen one extended for an entire week — these sales usually last no more than 72 hours at the most — and also have seats in the first class cabin included in the sale…

…but new blackout dates have also been added; so please check those carefully if you intend on participating in this sale.

A typical award ticket within the 48 continuous United States used to cost 25,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist; so portions of this sale are very good to excellent.
