Sky Pesos Joke of the Industry

They are such a joke.

Last week I looked for economy tickets(for friends)to Rio or Buenos Aires . Complete flexibility in July and August (not exactly high season) and there were no saver awards on any routing or any day . Oh the useless chart showed limited availability but when you clicked on it to buy it came up Standard Award.

Today I went in for myself looking for tickets in April to either Amsterdam or Paris (again not exactly high season)
Not as much flexibility but I doubt it would make a difference , nothing available.

I t used to be you could find seats on KLM or AF but DL burned those bridges and no longer do they offer anywhere close to the seats they once did.
Useless Program and Useless Management

Got one more TPAC flight to make in Business with their lazy FA's ( sorry for the few good one) and then I will try to find some vale for my 350,000 miles and then never again unless they are the only airline flying will they get dollar from me.

Oh and by the way I found Saver awards in 5 minutes for both those routings on UA. Not a big fan of UA but at this moment their Award Program is 100x better then DL.

Enjoy United and their industry-leading flight attendants and their industy-leading 8-abreast business class.

Seriously....do we need a new thread EVERYTIME someone can't find the specific itinerary or situation for which they are looking?

Particularly when they made pretty much the same post in a different thread just a day ago --

Maybe UA/AA/etc have created fake accounts and troll this one to try and show us the way so we all switch programs.

I don't care if you want to switch, just do it. Those of us that this is important to know the pro/cons and make decision based on our needs. We don't need a play by play of everyone else.

And I figure some people are trying to decide whether to fly Delta and they should be informed that Sky Pesos are worthless and will be getting more worthless.

Then if that is not important to then they can fly DL anyways.

And since I've been a Loyal NW/DL for many many years buying expensive tickets ,
I've got a right to vent even if some of you don't think so.

Rather than multiple rants, the OP would be better off developing - and applying - DL-specific search skills. Or he just find another carrier and enjoy that FT forum exclusively.

Maybe the OP is happy being unhappy because United doesn't seem to satisfy, either.

Tough crowd here! If the OP wants to start a thread and rant, why should you care? Why not just read the first few sentences and go on to something else. Instead, you seem to enjoy putting energy into telling people NOT to post their feelings. You imply you are personally offended by "another post" on the same subject. Hard to understand many of you.

Maybe the problem is that the OP thinks that being a DL PM and a DL GM is the same as a DL DM. OP isn't top tier on DL but compares it to being 1K on UA.
