Via The Points Guy, Delta has posted blackout dates for award travel on the following three partners online:
- China Airlines (hub: Taipei)
- China Southern (hub: Guangzhou)
- Korean Airlines (hub: Seoul)
The blackout dates announced for 2015 and 2016 are as follows:
Don’t shoot the messenger, me or Delta. These have always been the enforced blackout dates for trying to use Delta miles to fly these partners. The only news is that Delta has taken the transparent step of posting the blackout dates online.
That’s a bit surprising that Delta has taken the opaque step of removing its award chart from delta.com, but it is good news.
The MileValue Award Booking Service can still get you to Asia during these blackout dates with your Delta miles. Hire us for as little as $125 per person.
