DL Awards Now Available on VS Website

Nice change. Makes it much easier to find DL awards using VS miles.

Notable redemption opportunities:

TATL D1 nonstop: 50K
TATL D1 1-stop: 62.5K
TPAC D1: 60K
LAX-SYD: 75K

I've been collecting VS miles for a while with Hilton (2 miles per dollar instead of 1 mile per dollar from most other airlines) and sometimes from Hertz (they had a particularly lucrative bonus a while ago), finally can use my nearly 100k mile stash.

There was actually a 95K one way redemption available earlier today for today's flight. DCA-LAX-SYD all in D1 was available too.

or DCA-LAX in D1 by itself was 115K miles

Virgin, I believe, is the first other airline to adopt Delta's tech stack for its own operations. Their app is a re-skinned clone of the FlyDelta app. I assume this is just another implementation of Delta's software for award searches, and it comes with easy connections to the mother ship.
