To clarify our Award Travel chart, we’ve updated the Award level names to Saver, Standard and Peak from Low, Medium and High, respectively. Please note that the change of names for the Award levels does not indicate changes with the program rules or mileage redemption at this time. Visit our Award Travel page to learn more about using miles for an Award Ticket."

While some may speculate that this change is more than a wording change, we'd like to be very clear that this is only a modification to the way we describe Award levels. It is not a change to the levels themselves.

We hope this is a helpful change for you and the rest of our SkyMiles members.

ROTFOL Helpful?

This confirms that DL's three-tier pricing of mileage tickets was about increasing the traditionally "standard" type of mileage ticket pricing. And now we have the Orwellian-speak to try to groom minds to buy into the "standard" pricing as if it hasn't changed. At least we have an indication that SkyMiles management wants to jack up prices again.

Welcome to the "benefit" of longer-term "continuity" of management of the "loyalty" program.
