Smile Rumor 150,000 bonus ATL to HKG or Narita?

Can anyone confirm a rumor that I heard from Delta staff member that Delta will be offering 150,000 skymile bonus for flights originating in Atlanta and going to HKG or NAR?

That seems to be too low. Why not a cool million?

You got it wrong... this is DL, so it'll be 150,000 MQMs. Subject, of course, to the 50% bonus for premium fares, so you can essentially make Diamond for 2 years with a single flight.

No, DL will give you 150,000MQMs but ALSO allow you to gift GM to 5 of your closest friends, and they can do the same to 5 of their closest friends. This way, we can contribute to the ranks of all those hard earned medallion flyers.

The one things they forgot to tell you is the flight will cost one-way $5995 in coach and round trip tickets are required and to qualify you must sit in the middle seat for the entire flight with someone on each side of you......

You're all wrong. It's 150,000 miles and Richard Anderson will fly with you.

150,000 RDMs - enough for a roundtrip in coach to Mexico!

Delta must be listening, kind of. Triple/double miles on DTW-HND and LAX-HND after they resume and through September 30

i'd take the 150K though. i would sit in coach even.

For me, that's still 3.23 cents per mile and 9.17 cents per RDM. Not mileage runnable, but a nice bonus if you're on those routes anyway.

triple miles is nice if your already heading there, not enough for me to justify a MR
