1) Delta One on the upper deck of the last of the 747s: DTW/ICN DL 159, lots of availability after June 1 at 70K DTW/NRT DL275, lots of availability after June 1 at 70K Verdict: Looks good, a victory! On Delta metal even ... Note: DTW/AMS DL 134 (summer service 747) lowest price through Sept 30, 2015 is 125K, when 747 service is discontinued (surprisingly there are many direct flights on Delta metal DTW AMS after June 1 for 62.5K, but not on a 747 – another more minor victory) 2) Air France - JFK to CDG on the new AF 777 business class AF 9 and 17 – lots of 62.5K awards after June 1, usually '2 to 3 left at this price' (DL 400, also direct, is usually 147.5K after June 1, but oddly its 80K on June 13 when AF 9 and 17 do not fly. Go figure. The last date on which DL 400 is 62.5K is May 2. Verdict: Mixed. A good value partner award is still available, but Delta metal pricing on the same route is awful. 3) LAX SYD business class after June 1, all flights on DL 17 are 175K one way after June 1, some availability on VA 2 generally Tue Wed at 80K Verdict: Mixed. One of the best value partner awards still shows up after June 1, but fits the post-June 1 pattern of good value on partners poor value on Delta itself on the same route. 4) ATL JNB business class (one of the longest flights in the world and saves connecting in Europe) After June 1, the DL 200 direct flight is 175K every day actually it is 175K every day between now and end-of-schedule Verdict: Shame on sleazy Delta management. 5) FAI/EYB Fairbanks, Alaska to Key West,Florida coach class so whats the longest most expensive domestic flight in coach? Good news, you can still fly for 12.5K SkyMiles from Fairbanks to Key West on June 22, 2016 on Alaska Airlines and Delta. Cash price is $691 or 5.5 cents per SkyMile. Verdict: Victory! My analysis: Generally, very negative after June 1 on Delta itself, but I wouldn't panic and burn SkyMiles on bad redemptions either. Choose your awards carefully even if you are winding down. I'm still trying to sort out what remains of any value.
