tried booking award delta flight with sky pesos miles tlv-nyc O/W after Jan 1, 2015 but still showed 85,000 miles,  I thought after Jan 1, 2015 you can book one ways for half the points???

Yup, after Jan 1 you'll be able to. You have it right.

IINM it costs around $70
Per ticket? Or per reservation of 6 RT tickets?

Have you guys generally found it to be the case that if a classic award that shows up on FB site doesn't show up on delta.com, you can't book it with skymiles? The DL rep I spoke to last night said if it's not on delta.com, there's 0 chance it's bookable with skymiles. I know it's always worth calling DL anyway, but just as far as your experiences go.

For some reason, Delta doesn't have access to all FB space released to partners.

Terrible and annoying, for sure. Any way around it using skymiles, or that's just the way it is? Thanks for the response.

there was recently a hike in the taxes per passenger for flying  NYC-MTL (CANADA) when booking a delta flight with flying blue?

Some airlines need RT (ex. DL, KE) and some don't (ex. EK,CX,AA,AF,BA,AM)
