  1. I have delta skymiles account and not flying blue.
    Do I have to setup account with Flying Blue to avail the booking with Flying Blue ?
    Can you help explain this please?

  2. It would be extremely helpful to have a post that explains the ins and outs of booking with Delta and the other Flying Blue partners, especially for noobs like me. Thanks for all your work, Daraius!

  3. I second that. Is booking a delta flight through FlyingBLue site seamless or a major pain in the behind where 1/2 of the flights aren’t shown and it requires numerous phone calls and tricks to get the schedule to show up (similar to seeing award flights through ANA site) After an hour or so, i gave up with that endeavour

  4. Along the same lines as the posts above, I’d be interested to know if there are any advantages to using Flying Blue to book award flights on Alaska Air over using Avios. I haven’t had much luck trying to track down the partner award chart (Alaska Air via Flying Blue) or the process for booking an Alaska Air ticket with Flying Blue.

    Delta flights seemed like they were available through the Flying Blue award flight search.

  5. I’m also having a lot of trouble seeing award availability through the flyingblue website– awards that are clearly under the “saver” category on Delta. Weird. Any thoughts on how to get this to work? Or do we just have to call up?

  6. Darius,

    We’d appreciate some help here. Thank you !
