Delta says their spiffy new award calendars are so good you don’t need an award chart anymore — even though having a functional award calendar in no way precludes showing an award chart as American AAdvantage and United MileagePlus both do… and even though many of Delta’s partners aren’t available online through their award calendar.
But there’s no such thing as an upgrade calendar at Delta.com.
- Why did they get rid of the upgrade chart?
- How much does an upgrade cost?
- How would we know how many miles to save if we wanted to upgrade a future trip we haven’t booked yet?
- If they’re going revenue-based, how will that work for upgrades — do we have to pay the difference in miles between the fare paid and the current business fare?
This is just one area in which there are lots of questions, and from Delta… no answers.
Delta, your members are calling, pick up the phone! They’d like to know what you’re doing to their miles, please.
