Converting NASA Miles?

I booked my flight to Mars and will be getting 300M NASA miles. How do I convert them to Skypesos? Can I get MQM too?

Sadly your miles will not count toward Plutonium Medallion status.

Since Delta only credits you w/ MQM for the direct flight path, make sure you go when Mars in on the opposite side of the sun from Atlanta to maximize your MQM.

It's ridiculous that flights to the ISS do not qualify for lounge access. It says "International" in the freaking name!!!

I have no sense of humor and can't tell that you're all joking. I can't believe the altitude of all the self-entitled posters here. Clearly you're all after compensation.

How many NASA miles required for the J redemption on this flight to Mars?
(My guess is probably less than a DL Int値 J redemption in D1 )

NASA is a Star Alliance partner. No transfers to SkyTeam.

I heard NASA is leaving Star Alliance for oneWorld and with service to Mars within the alliance now, oneWorld will be changing its alliance name to twoWorlds.

Never had the opportunity to fly on Delta metal to Mars, anyone have recommendations on the best seat. I知 thinking 2A might be the best option.

Yes and there is no interline agreement so you have to clear intergalactic clearance and recheck your bags, on a mct of 1 light year
