Talking Already Live: Mileage Redemption Increase

(At this point, my kind of humor is gallows-style. Hence, I'm using "" instead of my usual "")

Where's the press release, DL? Edit: DL's official announcement is in post #6.
Here's what I've figured out:

* BE low awards between USA and Europe will cost 125k (up from 100k) round-trip for travel starting 6/1/14.

Test cases:
100k 5/14/14 DL18 DTW-LHR; 5/21/14 DL19 LHR-DTW
125k 6/2/14 DL18 DTW-LHR; 6/10/14 DL39 LHR-ATL DL1513 ATL-DTW


* BE low awards between USA and Asia will cost 140k (up from 120k) round-trip for travel starting 6/1/14.

Test cases:
120k 5/7/14 DL173 JFK-NRT/MNL; 5/21/14 DL172 NRT/MNL-JFK
My JFK-MNL-JFK BE award travel this December. (Redeemed a few months ago.)
140k 6/11/14 DL173 JFK-NRT/MNL; 6/25/14 DL172 NRT/MNL-JFK


* BE low awards between USA and Australia will cost 160k (up from 150k) round-trip for travel starting 6/1/14.

Test cases:
150k 5/7/14 DL17 LAX-SYD; 5/21/14 DL16 SYD-LAX
160k 6/11/14 DL17 LAX-SYD; 6/18/14 VA1 SYD-LAX

* BE low awards between USA and South Africa will cost 160k (up from 140k) round-trip for travel starting 6/1/14.

Test cases:
160k 6/3/14 DL5 JFK-LHR VS601 LHR-JNB; 6/16/14 VS602 JNB-LHR 6/17/14 DL2 LHR-JFK
140k
My DTW-LHR-JNB-LHR-DTW BE award travel next May and June. (Redeemed mileage a week ago. Whew! Just beat the devaluation.)

* BE low awards between USA and South America will cost 125k (up from 100k) round-trip for travel starting 6/1/14.

As reported by Rylan.


Enjoy the enhancements!!!
