I’m ashamed of myself. Never before have I canceled a trip I actually intended to take, but it looks like there’s a first time for everything. Sadly I’ll have to cancel my Delta BusinessElite award ticket to Tel Aviv, which sucks, since I was really looking forward to seeing Israel and trying out Delta’s new BusinessElite product. Unfortunately life’s commitments got in the way this time around.
Last night when I called to cancel, I was presented with the option of either canceling the ticket and redepositing the miles (and paying the fee) or just canceling. I was going to redeposit the miles, but I theoretically asked whether I’d have to pay a 30,000 mile premium if I booked the same award later in the year, since I booked this during the 25% off business class award promotion. He insisted I would just have to pay the change fee, so for now I just canceled the ticket without redepositing the miles. Who knows, maybe I’ll have time later in the year to go to Israel.
On the plus side, I’ll be booking a first class Star Alliance award tomorrow for later in the summer, so stay tuned for that.
