What's the best thing to do with 65,000 Delta Miles
« on: September 25, 2012, 03:51:19 PM »
I have about 65K Delta miles that I'd like to make a profit from.  Any ideas of how to get the most for my money with these?

I really don't know who would pay 1.2 for Delta. I was seeing offers for them between .8 and 1- especially with all the recent Delta changes

Delta just quietly inflated certain part of their charts, and AF began SkyNet blocking.

As in not giving the seats to partners, or not letting you book partner's seats?

As in not showing availability on AF seats even though AF had availability. There is speculation that Delta spent through their award quota for the year and they don't want to spend any more money on AF awards

There is such a thing as an award quota?
