Delta, Singapore Air to finally split up

Ending a relationship that has spanned over 20 years, Delta and Singapore Air have announced an end to their frequent flyer partnership.  As discussed by Lucky and Gary the partnership will be coming to an end on May 15, 2010.  The rewards on Singapore Air used to be a great value for folks collecting SkyMiles.  Now that the premium seats are much harder to find (though I’ve got a couple for Christmas!!) the value really isn’t there so much.  Plus, with Delta growing their global footprint directly and also with their membership in SkyTeam and Singapore Air’s membership in Star Alliance it doesn’t really make sense for the partnership to continue from any perspective.

Get working on those redemptions if you’re still interested.  The clock is ticking.
