In April, we posted that fare alignment between Delta, Air France and KLM’s meant that Air France and KLM’s cheapest fares were not mileage earning. These fares were in the V and X bucket.
Here are the screenshots from Delta’s mileage earning charts from April:
Looks like Delta’s mileage earning charts were updated in the last few days and now V class fares are 100% MILEAGE earning!
This is the first positive news from Delta in a very long time! It is also been a while since we actually see positive enhancement to mileage earning via airline partners. Couple with Delta earning 100% with its new partner Virgin Atlantic, we are seeing significant positive enhancements with Delta’s tier 1 partners (tier 1 = those partners that Delta has an equity or joint venture relationship).
The downside? X fares continues to be non-mileage earning.
