Trying to use miles

Trying to use miles 2016-01-31T19:41:41-08:00

Yesterday, I tried to get two tickets – for myself and my 12 year old son – on Delta to fly from Washington to Denver with my 50,000 miles June 22.

Even though the plane was more than half empty, I had to use 50K miles per ticket. So my son cannot go with me.

Unless there is no other option, I will never fly Delta again.

Airlines have open up some of their inventory but only in select markets. I think that most often the higher award level is becoming the norm. If your flexible you might fine more options, or purchase a ticket as airfares have been fairly low this spring and into the summer.

My best,
