    As part of the recent push to promote their west coast market share, Delta has a double miles promotion for west coast travel booked by Dec 31, 2013 for flights prior to Oct 31, 2014. The amount of miles you can earn is unlimited. While the base miles for a RT from, say, SEA-LAX is only 1900 miles, given double elite miles coupled with this promotion, you could net 5700 miles. This promotion does make me more keen to fly Delta regionally even though DL flights will tend to more spendy than other airlines.

    Wonder if AS will match. Such a good partner DL is...

    Is Delta now flying direct to LAX ? Last time I had checked with them, you could only route through SLC.

    Yes several a day on CRJ7/9s/A320s operated by DL cxn. Plus they are ramping SEA-SFO and SEA-LAS up to multiple a day.

    Received an email with the below expanded and new routes out of seattle. Even more expansion out of Seattle next year it seems:

    LAS - 4 new non stop routes - 2 daily flights starting 6 Jan
    SFO - 6 daily non stops starting 26 March
    LHR- non stop daily flight starting 29 March
    SAN - 4 daily non stops starting 2 June
    ICN - non stop daily flight starting 2 June
    ANC - 2 daily nonstops between June 5th-August 30th
    LAX - 2 new non stops starting 2 June
    HKG - non stop service starting 16 June
    PDX - 4 daily non stops starting 2 September

    The Hong Kong and London service intrigues me the most and wonder how often the hong kong flight will be.

    UA just ceded the SEA-NRT market over to DL so that should be interesting.

    This week DL announced they are adding JNU and apparently SJC flights from SEA per posts on teh box.

    Things continue to escalate. This was right after AS retaliated with 5 new SLC services and DEQM on them last week.
