Terms and Conditions

Some routes may include one or more segments operated with single cabin aircraft featuring Main Cabin service in place of Delta Comfort+. Please check the itinerary for details and class of service.

Award travel is subject to government-imposed taxes and fees and carrier-imposed charges, which are your responsibility and must be paid at the time the ticket is booked. Taxes, fees and charges imposed by the carrier depend upon the itinerary; and will range between:

  • $30.00 and $80.00 one-way for Main Cabin travel from the contiguous 48 United States to Caribbean
  • $70 and $130 one-way for Main Cabin travel from the Caribbean to the contiguous 48 United States

Taxes shown are based on nonstop flights and accurate as of April 1, 2015. Changes in currency exchange rates or government-imposed fees may cause taxes to fluctuate.

Award Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights or in all markets.

Tickets are not refundable except in accordance with the cancellation policy of Delta Air Lines. Fees may apply for downgrades or reissues and itinerary changes. Award ticket changes must be implemented at least 72 hours prior to the departure time of the flight being changed. Award tickets booked within 72 hours of departure are not refundable and cannot be redeposited or reissued unless prohibited by local law or within the risk-free cancellation period. No changes will be permitted to the originating flight of award tickets booked within 72 hours; however, changes to the return flight are permitted if the return flight is not within 72 hours and the change is implemented at least 72 hours prior to flight departure.  Fees apply for any changes; and taxes and fees will apply. Voluntary changes to award tickets after the promotion has ended may result in an increase in mileage costs.

For travel between the contiguous 48 United States and the Caribbean, a $25.00 fee for the first checked bag and a $40.00 fee for second checked bag may apply. Allowances are subject to size and weight limits.

Redemption amounts, fees, rules, and offers are subject to change without notice.

Other restrictions, terms and conditions may apply.


Definitively calling this a good deal is difficult to do without an actual award chart to which can be referred; but saving any amount of SkyMiles on an award ticket is better than not saving any at all — especially if one of the destinations is one which you would like to visit.

      Could you imagine going to a supermarket where none of the prices of the items for sale are displayed, René; and then the supermarket advertises a sale of 35 percent off?

      When I was a kid, I played a board game which was loosely based on finance; and one of the cards advertised a discount of 20 percent off of the purchase of a fence…

      …and the fine print on the bottom of the card humorously explained as a disclaimer that the 20 percent was off of the height of the fence and not the cost…
