Our initial retirement travel plan last year consisted of England, Belgium, and Spain courtesy of Delta miles and Hilton points!

However, now I have almost used them all up and I am broke!

I am collecting cans and bottles from barrels so I can go to the Freddies - one must have their priorities straight.:D

Trying to pace ourselves! Got open water certified when we were in Hawaii so I can dive the GBR in September. I think I have enough money to get us through that. Then we'll be looking for earning opportunities to allow us to feed our travel habit.

Actually, Delta will interpolate MQDs on non-006 stock. I noticed that happened last year when we booked the AZ coded AF fare mistake BKK-CDG-FCO. I have the MQD exemption, but my daughter does NOT and she got a very large amount of MQDs for this flight. (I can elaborate with specifics if anyone is interested).

OK. So I took the MU flights. Pros: Higher amount of Award SkyMiles. Neutral: Full MQM for (most) Y flights, MQS counts. 'Cons': Sky Priority for baggage services is poor. No C+ or even preferred seating but one can pick Windows / Aisle seats. Typically placed towards the end of the plane. No liquor, only a bottle of red wine and one choice of canned beer. Both have very limited quantity and I see it frequently out for each drink run. VERY strick with mobile phones while in flight. The FA keeps asking passengers to turn off their mobiles and will stand there until they see compliance. They do not allow even air plane mode. Request mobile phones to be completely powered down throughout their flights. Tablets are fine. Miles post fine to SkyMiles account.

What happens when I buy a DL metal DL coded 006 ticket, but put FF number of Alaska -

[LIST]
[*]Will I get priority boarding as I am a DL elite ?
[*]Access to SKYClubs internationally, as I do if I had plugged in my DL FF number ?
[/list]
50% of miles deposited in my Alaska account is better than getting peanuts on DL.

You shouldn't have an issue accessing the SkyClub on an international Delta flight in Y by showing your (virtual) Delta Medallion SkyTeam Elite+ card.

But, if it was me, I would probably just add the Alaska number after getting into the SkyClub. When they re-print your boarding pass you will lose your priority boarding; but showing your Medallion card will solve that.

Come to think of it, you probably can just show your Delta Medallion card for both the club access and priority boarding.

But, have you checked the Alaska Mileage Plain earning for Delta flights? You only earn (Alaska Mileage Plan) 50% for L, U, T, X, V fare classes on Delta metal. Though, in some instance 50% might still be more than the Delta SkyMiles revenue earning.

Revenue based mileage really impacted me hard since I fly cheap international (economy) all the time.

I always use Sluty fares, and JFK-SIN was a sweet spot with 20k miles. I'll be falling back on my lifetime status, and use Alaska mostly.
