Delta skymiles vs continental onepass
« on: September 13, 2009, 10:14:19 AM »
Anyone know which miles r worth more delta or continental ? And whose program is better ?                (I already have the delta credit card and got 25k miles but don't have any continental miles yet if it matter's so is it worth to start with co or just stick to delta)

 Id say it depends where you want to cash them in to fly to

If Israel CO hands down as *A will have some 7 or 8 Carriers that will be flying in, and most using Wide-body aircraft while with ST DL will be the only carrier that will use a wide-body

 Besides DL will ding you for $25 if any of the flights are on a ST member and flying an A320 from Europe is not something Id look forward to having to do

You can either sell them which usually means you would give someone access to your online account and they will book their tickets from there and pay you for the points. For such a low amount you might not get much more than $200 or so for the points.
Or you can use it for a Domestic flight.

it depends if you will keep on flying or needing star alliance, or rather skyteam.

You won't get any Continental miles for Delta flights after 10/24/09.
