Praise for Delta (airlines that is)
I think that most of us would rather spend a few thousand miles piloting our personal K1200LT somewhere, but unfortunately for me in the last three years I have become a domestic road warrior and choose Delta as my preferred airline. I am up to 147K miles on Delta this year alone (ass in seat miles) and still more trips are in the pipe before the end of 2012
Well three years later it is finally time to use up some of those coveted Delta miles and with all the stories I heard of the problems using miles I was ready for a fight.
Well I would not say it was a fight, but it took multiple calls and over 4 hours, but I was able to get 7 award tickets in / and or out of Ukraine for myself, wife, 2 kids, sister in-law and two grandparents.
The value of the tickets were over $15K when you consider that a few were first class (for me and the wife) and I only had to pay the government fees which amounted to just under $300 per ticket.
Now I am not bragging (ok maybe just a little) , but the purpose was to pass along that it can be done, using those award miles and they are worth something. And to mention that it does take the right agent.
After the right agent and I spent a few hours on the phone and she got everything fixed.
I wrote this on the social media sites and to delta directly and wanted to pass along here.
I just want to say Thanks to Patricia at Delta, two agents previous said everything was was all set, but unfortunately the tickets were not correct.
Patricia she stayed on the line for 2 hours tonight and fixed problems with 7 award tickets with 4 different outbound dates and 2 different returns and somehow got us all on the same flights back from Ukraine (SIP) to Moscow (SVO) to JFK to Orlando (MCO) all on the same day and same flights.
Total award miles burned tonight = 520,000 miles Including R/T first class for three of the adults THANKS DELTA. This summer is going to be the best summer for the kids EVER.
Thanks to Delta the kids are going to spend 2 months in Ukraine with Grandma and Grandpa in Crimea and on the Black Sea...
I cannot say enough about Patricia, I gave her one of those "A Job Well Done" recognition awards. She deserved it. She even had a sense of humor and said "I have very BAD news, I need a credit card to charge the extra 41 cents on takes one the tickets." VERY FUNNY. I felt we both needed the laugh. Thanks again..
