Delta isn’t known for making a plethora of award inventory available at the lowest point levels, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Unfortunately, this won’t help for my trip to the upcoming Chicago Seminars, but if you’ve got your eye on some award travel, try and take advantage of this! Based on the eligible travel dates, I’d say Delta is offloading some inventory during a non-peak period and encouraging people to spend their miles. Whether it’s related to the upcoming changes to the SkyMiles program is beyond my capability to speculate. Will you be taking advantage of this opportunity?
