Delat Skypesos & Their Horrible Award System
This past week, I was spending some time getting “acquainted” with the Delta reservations system. For some reason, I thought it was a good idea to gain Medallion status for the Delta/Skyteam alliance. Not only do they have inflated point ratios to Hawaii (65,000 almost all the time), but they somehow happen to have really bad routings as well.
Case in point: A recent trip for a client booking from Houston-Sydney
Can someone please explain to me the benefit of this ridiculous and horrid reservation system? This happened to me a while back as well with a Bahama trip booking as well.
Either way, I rarely fly Delta and am still considering whether or not Medallion is worth it. I personally value Delta at a really low value of 1.5 CPM because I really cant justify it being higher than that. Especially because you cant book first class internationally and because honestly, Skyteam Partner Korean Air has a better award redemption rate!
