Delta and Marriott seem to be in a hot soup in China with their apparent mistakes calling Chinese territories nations in their own right. And Marriott has been shut down in China for a week for this so-called mistake of theirs!

Delta Skymiles flicked the switch on a button a short while ago which makes it possible to redeem DL Skymiles for flights to India on Jet Airways, apart from their other network partners. Here are the details of how to redeem DL skymiles on Jet Airways
Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege and Delta have tied up for a frequent flyer partnership which allows one’s members to earn and burn on the other airline as well. Here are the details of the announcement.
Jet Airways and Delta are now making a new partnership at London Heathrow, along with Virgin Atlantic. This expands the Jet Airways partnership for the Americas across Delta / KLM / Air France / Virgin Atlantic. Great news for the flyers who shuttle half way across the globe then.
This could be interesting. The much expected Joint Venture between KLM/Air France, Delta and Jet Airways may be happening. This could mean connectivity from tonnes of places in the USA and Europe to India, and the other way around as well! Here is what we know so far…
Jet Airways will be moving operations from Brussels to Amsterdam at the end of March 2016, when the summer 2016 schedule gets underway. This move solves a lot of problems for Jet Airways and also opens a new city for Jet Airways.
Here are all the details of the new route and how it will work for Jet Airways’ European operations here on.
Delta CEO Richard Anderson puts his foot in his mouth, blaming the Middle Eastern Carriers (with subsidies!) for the exit of their lone Indian station. Before that, he drove Virgin Atlantic out of Mumbai as well. Read on to find out the exciting giberish he has for us.
Ever since American Airlines withdrew their Delhi-Chicago non-stop back in the day, I’ve wondered which American airline will be the next to go away from India. United has non-stop services to Mumbai and Delhi, while Delta has a one-stop service between NewYork JFK/Mumbai via Amsterdam operating for a very long time. While this announcement was out on AirlineRoutes.net for a while, I somehow seemed to have missed it. DELTA has closed reservation for Amsterdam – Mumbai service, for travel on/after 28MAR15. The Skyteam member currently operates this route once a day, and planned to be operated by 767-300ER from 29MAR15. Clearly, the JFK-AMS flight continues, but AMS-BOM is no longer available for sale beyond the winter schedule. I tried playing…
I usually do not put the individual route fare sales on this blog, but this one was too good to pass up, especially since this blog tries to focus on India-related aviation deals as well. Delta has a Boston-Amsterdam-Mumbai roundtrip fare, and also a Boston-Paris-Mumbai roundtrip fare which is going in the $830-$870 range, which is way less than the usual fare on this route which goes at $1100 upwards. Here is a screenshot of fares from the Matrix website. Various dates are available for various number of nights. As per The Flight Deal website, which first posted the deal, says the deal is valid for travel from March 10th – May…
And Kingfisher Airlines as well, but that is not so important! Buddies in crime for a while, Delta Airlines is terminating its frequent flyer partnership with Jet Airways from 15th October 2012 as per an announcement put out on the Delta Skymiles website. While Jet and Delta both have had a reputation of their own as good airlines, both have had one big problem area where they could give each other a good fight, the worse redemption capabilities ever. This is where the parallels have been drawn all this while. According to this thread on FT, Delta fired Jet Airways because Jet had even more restrictive rules than them on redeeming rewards. I am sure they could not take that…
