    I have an upcoming trip that is an award trip flying into MUC. I didn't have nearly enough miles for business class so coach it is. ( two people are much harder to save for). The flight is the 29th of this month. I just looked at the seat map and over 75% of the front is vacant! This just makes me cry inside a little. While I still wouldn't have enough miles for those tix I would gladly give up what I do have! Oh well.

    Can you transfer some other points (AmEx?) to DL or purchase miles if you see low BE award availability?

    No
    Nothing to transfer and I would still need 50k points .... I think. Plus then they would charge a change fee x2 I bet since I am lowly silver.

    Enjoy your trip, TravelBear. Hopefully you and your partner will enjoy your time in Europe so much that you will scarcely remember the flights to and from. :)

    Hey Bob! I think I hear an eclair calling me from up your way! I know coach is fine but seeing all that open space makes think delta should just put us up there. You know, out of the goodness of their hearts! We get back mid November, maybe we could meet up at Rosetta's for some vegan goodness.

    Sounds good. I'm around, except for some car trips to the beach.

    You know by now, Jeff isn't going to do anything professional - especially opening the award bucket - out of goodness of heart.

    But...why don't you engage in some manufactured spend if you're that anxious to get on board DL's demonic plane?

    Are there actually awards available? Or just a bunch of unassigned seats?

    Both, I think. I saw the seats open then attempted dummy booking two seats and while I didn't go all the way through the booking I did get to the fees page. Yes I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything , but it at least puts the taste of hope in ones mouth.
