They're SkyTeam partners, so you can. But you probably won't get away with double dipping.

Personally I'd take Continental miles over Delta miles.

Let me guess:

* Delta has higher award fees.
* There's more availability on continental than on Delta (SkySaver).
* less miles required with Continental to certain destinations (e.g. Israel).
* Less miles required with Continental to fly international business/first class.

Dan, how did I do?

Not bad at all Asher!

I would add to that:
-CO is moving to the Star alliance next year, which is far superior w/r/t redemption than Skyteam.
-CO has great american CS, understanding Delta phone agents is harder than Dell!
-Delta's website is absolutely horrible, although rumor is that with the NW merger they will switch to NW's site (which is marginally better).

There's more, but that's a good start

Our OnePass® members are important to us, so we are making every effort to keep you informed of some changes to our checked baggage policy and the OnePass program.

Effective Oct. 7, 2008, customers will be charged $15 for their first checked bag when traveling on tickets purchased on or after Sept. 5, 2008, within the U.S., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada.

The service fee will not apply to EliteAccess® customers, including those seated in First or BusinessFirst®, OnePass Elite and SkyTeam® Elite members, customers traveling on full-fare economy (Y) class tickets, or military personnel and their families traveling on official orders.

Effective for travel on or after Jan. 1, 2009, OnePass members will earn the actual miles flown rather than a minimum of 500 miles per flight for tickets purchased on or after Nov. 15, 2008. This affects base miles and Elite Qualifying Miles on flights operated by Continental* and most OnePass airline partners**.

Also effective for reward travel booked on or after Jan.1, 2009, reward travel mileage requirements will increase for customers traveling between North America and Tel Aviv (TLV) and between Hawaii and Tel Aviv.

Effective for travel on or after March 1, 2009, Elite Mileage Bonuses will decrease for Platinum members from 125% to 100% and for Silver members from 50% to 25% for tickets purchased on or after Nov. 15, 2008. Gold members will continue to earn 100% mileage bonuses.

Full details of all changes can be found at continental.com.

We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you soon.
