For a holiday week the blogs have been ” a buzzin’ ” ! Lots have found a work-a-round for booking one way travel on Delta using either Membership Rewards or SPG points and sending them to KLM and then booking on Delta metal. Lucky has a great post about it as well as PM&M if you want to look over at their blogs. I would be cautious doing this as unless you can book right away, you may get stuck with points at KLM if they for some reason shut this down.
PM&M talked about getting medallion benefits for those flying with you even if on another PNR. But, you will be playing rep roulette at check-in as per the RULES you must be on the same PNR so be careful!
Also, we all know you can only grab seats if under 90 days on KLM right? Intra – Europe* (*must be business class to pick >90) that still holds true but there has been an update for international flights. I can confirm from both phone reps and from flights myself that 91+ days does work but you will need the KLM record locator number for the trip. Delta will give it to you if you call then just go to www.KLM.com and go to Manage my booking.
