AA vs. DL: Who will win the Transcon Bonus battle?

2010 is definitely shaping up to be the year of bonus mile offer showdowns! The latest pits Delta against American with their new offers for premium transcontinental flights. Both airlines are offering up to 50,000 miles in their respective programs for flights between New York and Los Angeles or San Francisco.

I believe the first out of the gate in this match up was Delta, which offered up 50,000 bonus SkyMiles for round-trip flights in BusinessElite and 25,000 bonus SkyMiles for flights in premium (Full fare) economy

American quickly matched Delta’s promotion by offering 50,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for flights in First or Business Class and 25,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for full fare economy (Fare classes Y,D,I)
