Double Miles On Flights To Asia "(Targeted)" Promo

(Targeted) Just got an e-mail advertising double miles on all flights to/from Asia. Pretty generous IMO as it covers the next ~10 months and is not capped.. here's the link if you didn't get the e-mail, though it seems to only work for those targetted in the e-mail: http://dmn.delta.com/ace_plrs/DoubleMilesToAsia/


Earn double miles on flights between the U.S. and Asia through December 31st.

Dear spikyone,

Whether you're flying for business or pleasure, earn double bonus miles when you fly Delta between the U.S. and Asia*.

First register, then purchase and fly between the U.S. and Asia now through December 31, 2013, to earn double bonus miles. The more you fly, the more you can earn—it's unlimited!

Want to make the flight even more enjoyable? Relax in style by booking a seat in Economy Comfort™, which includes 3–4 additional inches of legroom, up to 50% more recline and complimentary spirits on most long-haul international flights.

We look forward to seeing you on board soon!

T&C:

Codeshare flights operated by carriers other than Delta are excluded from this offer. There is no limit to the bonus miles that can be earned within the qualification period.

Delta reserves the right to assign or reassign an Economy Comfort seat at any time, even after boarding of the aircraft, for operational, safety or security reasons.

In the event you have paid for and are not accommodated into an Economy Comfort seat, you are entitled to a refund in the amount paid for the Economy Comfort seat. Refunds will not be issued in the event of an upgrade to or accommodation in First Class or Business Class.

No love shown to me. I'm guessing this e-mail only went out to those that don't frequently travel to Asia.

Well, I'm not qualified for the Asian promo. However there was a different promo in my profile. I didn't get an email for this promo so go check you "My Delta" page.

Double mile bonus between JFK and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic or Santiago, Dominican Republic or Port-au-Prince, Haiti until July 31, 2013.

Whoa! Surprisingly, I actually am eligible! I do travel frequently to Asia... including once to Beijing on an M fare last year, which might be why I was targeted. My girlfriend, a GM with one future Asia trip booked in T, was not eligible.

Surprising, given that my custValueSeg is 0

Hm, looks like everyone in my immediate and extended family (including our 2 y.o. who just got her account opened a week ago and didn't even travel yet) is eligible for the Caribbean promo

Same here. Not eligible for the Asia promo, but for the Caribbean promo
Shame, as I have a trip to China coming up in April.

Edit to add: In fact, now I think about it...this shows you just how irrational DL has become. Instead of letting me signup for the promo which will make me seriously consider the more expensive DL flight to China, DL refuses to make to offer available to me. Result: flying with the cheaper competition (AC or UA). Good job, DL!

Looking at the T&C of the Carribean promo it does not appear to be targeted at all (unlike the Asian one). I guess even those eligible for the Asian promotion can see the Carribean one in their DL account profile.

Have done HND/NRT to LAX/SFO at least half a dozen times in the last two years, never been anywhere near the Caribbean.

So of course I qualify for the Caribbean promo.

Double Miles On Flights To Asia "(Targeted)" Promo

I also qualify for JFK-Caribbean. For a person whose address is on Asia that is not exactly useful. Boooooo

Who would I call if I want to lobby to be included in the Asia promo?

This is soooo tempting. Just got the promo email. I already have a PNS-MNL award ticket booked for March. I was able to book ATL-ICN-MNL on KAL. Looking forward to the KAL FAs and the KAL lounge in ICN, BUT I'm actually considering refunding the reward ticket and buying a ticket to get the bonus miles. As a PM will I still collect the double miles in addition to receiving the targeted promo miles? Essentially earning TRIPLE miles on an Asia run. BTW, I've made the PNS-MNL round trip 4 times since 2011.
