52 weeks of the Wall Street Journal for 1300 Skymiles

Delta Air Lines Launches Magazines and Newspapers for Miles Program Online
Members may redeem miles online for subscriptions to more than 40 magazines and newspapers

ATLANTA, March 16, 2004 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today announced that SkyMiles® program members now may redeem miles online for various magazine and newspaper subscriptions. Redemption opportunities begin at 400 miles, and selections include well-known titles such as TIME, Barron’s, Entrepreneur, Travel + Leisure and more.

To celebrate the launch of this program, members will receive a one-time bonus of 100 miles for their first subscription order placed on or before June 15, 2004.

“Delta is continually looking for ways to customize the SkyMiles program and offer rewards that are valuable to our members,” said Robert Borden, SkyMiles program director. “Members have told us they would like more non-transportation mileage redemption opportunities in addition to the existing redemption opportunities – such as upgrades, Crown Room Club memberships and Award Travel – that we offer.”

Members may conveniently redeem miles and choose magazines and newspapers at delta.com/skymiles. For example, members may currently subscribe to:

· The Wall Street Journal (52 weeks) for 1,300 miles

· Sports Illustrated (52 weeks) for 2,100 miles

· Black Enterprise (52 weeks) for 900 miles

· Hispanic Business (52 weeks) for 600 miles



WSJ Seems like a Pretty Good Deal.

When you go and try to redeem, it lists 64 issues of WSJ for 1,200 miles. Not bad, but far from 52 weeks (250+ issues).
