Delta SkyMiles eliminates mileage expiry

Finally some good news coming out of an frequent flyer program! Delta announced today that they have eliminated their mileage expiry rules. Simply put this means SkyMiles don’t expire. Delta is now the only major U.S. carrier, North America actually, without mileage expiration.

The question that will now be raised, is will other airlines follow suit? I think we will definitely see a couple of the other majors do so in the U.S. but I am not too sure about cross border airlines like Air Canada or AeroMexico. Hopefully this trend will be like others that start in the U.S. and go global so that more airlines adopt this customer oriented rule.
