Late-Breaking Program News Last-Minute Delta Awards
(Posted: Aug 10, 2011)

Delta has made a policy change regarding award tickets that penalizes members who make changes at the last minute.

Effective Aug. 15, 2011, members must now cancel or change award tickets at least 72 hours before your scheduled departure time or you will forfeit your miles. And the taxes and fees for award travel cancelled within 72 hours will be refundable only upon request.

For changes and cancellations made at least 72 hours prior to departure, Diamond and Platinum Medallion members will continue to get fee waivers, while others will pay reissue and redeposit fees.

Many SkyMiles members have been waiting until the last minute to change their award tickets because the cost in miles would often go down at the last minute. Delta found that over the past year, more than 1,000,000 award tickets were cancelled or changed within 72 hours prior to departure.
