New Delta Round the World Map

In the February issue of Sky Magazine, (now on-line), it now includes a Delta Round the World Map, that shows everywhere Delta and ALL its partners fly outside of the domestic USA.
Kind of a interesting map.

I am no tech expert, but do you have Adobe Flash installed? I think you need it to view Sky Magazine on-line. I am able to view it on Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer, with no problem.

Very annoying to browse that mag on mobile :-/

here's what it looks like for everyone else... I agree, pretty useless, but still shows you some macro route trends I guess...

As my mama is fond of saying, "useless as tits on a bull." You can't follow half the lines without a magnifying glass, and even then it's hard to tell what city it's going to/from.

Oh but they took away the award chart so they could enhance and improve our options and because we wanted that - it's our fault remember?

It's interesting to me which partners they include and exclude. Jet Airways in and (just as an example) China Airlines out?

kinda useless. Last time I heard is Delta discontinued the RTW trips with Skymiles. That move peeved quite a few customers.

Now KLM has a very nice websight dedicated to RTW trips. ^^^

What is Seabourne listed down with all the other airline logos? A cruise line?

Also, several of the carriers are not ST members... WestJet, GOL, Virgin Australia and Virgin Atlantic. And some ST destinations are completely missing, like Viet Nam.

There don't seem to be any domestic flights on that map.
