I was going to do the same. While on delta there is clearly a difference between it stating first or business. Business flights are specificly Business Elite. I was going to fly JFK-ATL in business elite, then take ATL-JFK in business elite under my brother's name (already registered under promotion).

Any update on this promotion would be appreciated

I went for it! paid w/ amex but only after taking snapshots of the promo t&c's and the seat map. and after recording my call with delta rep saying my flight qualifies 100%. Hope it's not a headache

Let me know how it goes! When is the flight?
Delta rep gave me the OK and then said that it has to be transcontinental. What did you use to record? I need to do the same!

My planned trip is EWR to FLL with a stop in ATL.  The first leg is Z. the second is G.  I just got off with Delta and the rep said it will qualify.  I certainly hope so. $172.50
Same situation - one leg business elite, one leg not.  My rep said it would qualify.

What flight # was it? How much was the flight?

Do you know if it was an up fare? or if the flight was officially first class only (no actual business class)?

Newsflash: I just saw on FT that Delta changed the t&c's of the promo and now it says something along the lines of "only transcon/transatlantic flights qualify".... I wonder if they'll honor the old t&c's that were written vaguely and that i booked based on....

They have to. Whatever new deal they're making with new offers, is for them.  We were made a different, but similar offer.  We should all keep our offer papers.

100,000sky pesos are still probably worth $1200 to many people. There are some uses of them.
