Q: What changes will we see as a result of the integration?
A: We're evaluating all aspects of both programs in order to provide
the best features to all of our members (i.e. access to more rewards, greater earning potential, etc.) Specific updates
will be communicated to you as enhanced program decisions are made.
Q: What is changing for current or new SkyBonus and Biz Perks members?
A: We are striving to ensure that the merger is smooth, seamless and
delivers more benefits to our business travelers - that means more choices than ever. The Delta/Northwest merger means
that we can offer our business travelers more than 350 destinations in 66 countries - more worldwide destinations than
any other airline. Those destinations also include nonstop access between our hubs in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis,
Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City and Tokyo.
Q: When will the merger be completed?
A: The full integration of Northwest Biz Perks and Delta SkyBonus will
be completed around Q1 of 2010. Until then, it's business as usual for members of each program.
Q: Will SkyBonus and Biz Perks operate separately until the programs are merged?
A: Until the integration is completed, Delta's SkyBonus program and Northwest's
Biz Perks program will continue to operate as two separate business programs following their own terms and conditions.
Q: Can we still access the current SkyBonus and Biz Perks programs online?
A: You and your travelers may continue to enroll and access Biz Perks
and SkyBonus account information online through the NWA Biz Perks and Delta SkyBonus sites. Biz Perks and SkyBonus members
may continue to manage their accounts online and earn and redeem points as usual.
Q: Can I link my accounts?
A: Yes, you'll be able to link your accounts through the "Consolidate
My Account Page," which will be available here on this site in Q1 of 2010.
Q: Do points expire?
A: Points expire three years after the year of issuance on December 31.
Q: What will happen to my company's program membership and points?
A: During the transition period, Biz Perks will remain active, but separate
from Delta's SkyBonus program. Previously earned Biz Perks and SkyBonus points will continue to be valid. The current
terms and conditions of Biz Perks and SkyBonus will be in effect until the SkyBonus and Biz Perks programs are fully integrated
into one best-in-class small business loyalty program.
As the transition moves forward over the next 6 to 9 months, Biz Perks members will continue to earn and redeem their
points as usual.
Q: Can my company earn Biz Perks points when our employees travel on KLM?
A: Northwest currently represents KLM Royal Dutch Airlines within North
America, and this will not change. The new Delta will continue to represent KLM, and members will continue to earn Biz
Perks points when they travel via KLM. After the two programs have been completely integrated around Q1 of 2010, all members
of the new SkyBonus program will continue to earn points on KL coded flights.
Q: Can my company earn Biz Perks points when my employees fly on a Delta flight?
A: Biz Perks customers can earn points on flight numbers that begin
with NW, DL, or KL as long as the ticket is validated on NW '012' ticket stock. Points cannot be earned on tickets validated
on DL '006' stock.
Q: Can my company earn SkyBonus points when my employees fly on a Northwest flight?
A: SkyBonus customers can earn points on flight numbers that begin with
DL or NW as long as the ticket is validated on DL '006' ticket stock. Points cannot be earned on tickets validated on NW
