Delta 10k One-Way Redemptions & More SkyMiles Improvements

10,000 miles one-way from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale.

Delta has announced a number of enhancements to their SkyMiles program today. Among them is MQD earning on partner airlines, expanded award search options and 10,000 mile one-way redemptions on select routes when booked more than 21 days in advance.

With this announcement, Delta is joining United who also offers 10,000 mile one-way flights on shorter routes. With United any flight under 700 miles costs only 10,000 miles. Delta hasn’t released their criteria for the reduced price awards.

After performing a number of searches, it seems that the 10,000 mile one-way redemptions are limited to short haul routes. For example, I was able to find 10,000 point redemptions for a number of dates on LAS-LAX and FLL-ATL.

You can find more information about these improvements in their press release and in this Flyertalk thread.
