Award Redemption Do you know if Delta changed the SkyMiles redemption rate for their own metal?

    Hi Lucky,
    Do you know if Delta changed the SkyMiles redemption rate for their own metal ? I am looking at DXB to ATL, both directions and the rate showing up is 162,500 for one way form now till Feb 2016

    Also it seems they no longer release any saver space on any routes to Europe for their own metal ....

    @ Sam Jess -- That sounds like a mid-level award price. As far as saver availability to Europe goes, it all depends on the city pair.

    @Lucky : Thank you for the awesome fast response. I have looked till the end of the schedule and there is not a single 1-sest availability for ATL-DXB. or ATL-CDG or ATL-LHR , not even from JFK on any delta flight. Is that normal ? Wha's the use of saver rewards anyway if they aren't available ... are they mocking us ?

    @ Sam Jess -- It's definitely tougher than it used to be, unfortunately.
