Who wants a Delta DC-9 Gift Card??

Okay, so the price premium on the Delta DC-9 gift cards was a bit silly. I completely agree. But that didn’t stop me from buying one because I’m just that much of a dork.

Actually, I may be an even bigger dork than that. Because I bought two and I’m giving one of them away (including the original $50 Delta credit!) to a lucky reader. You can enter by leaving a comment below or through the Twitter options from the Rafflecopter link. Or both.

I slacked off in getting this set up so no way to get the card shipped in time for Christmas. But I’ll pick the winner on Christmas day and notify them of such; it’ll ship in January.

I'm Seth, also known as the Wandering Aramean. I was bit by the travel bug 30 years ago and there's no sign of a cure. I fly ~200,000 miles annually; these are my stories. You can connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.


  1. Nice gift Seth, someone is really going to love it. It was priced a bit too rich for my blood, but I’m sure it will find a good home. Happy Holidays!

  2. Not a lot of original 9’s still flying. Most are in the ad hoc freight fleet now. I have some recent pics of one sitting on the ramp in Fort Lauderdale waiting for her next load.

  3. You’re not a dork; you’re just an avgeek. This card — although pricier than warranted — is, in the end, a piece of aviation history. It would find a good — and permanent — home with me should I be lucky enough to be chosen. And thanks for thinking of your readers.

  4. Wow. If the card was made from a Northwest DC-9 (my first plane to fly in), then winning this card would be even more awesome for me! Big commercial aviation nerd over here, and thanks for all of your postings that I keep finding myself reading. Whenever you need a travel assistant, hire me. Winning this DC-9 memorabilia would make my holiday. Thanks Seth.

  5. Really cool! I just discovered Plane Tags made from fuselage and have bought a bunch as gifts for family.

  6. That’s very generous of you, Seth! I hope the winner appreciates the card properly, it’s a piece of history.

  7. Wow – you must really be in a holiday mood.. I volunteer gladly to take it if noone else does. πŸ™‚

  8. Seth, if I win, I’ll use the DL $50 credit towards a DCA-JFK ticket and come visit you in NYC!

  9. Count me as another avgeek. I remember flying in a DC-9, back when you got dressed up to fly.

  10. That was a cool idea to make a gift card out of. Love the picture frames made out of plane windows as well (but not the price tag!).

  11. Omg I’d love to get that! I used to work at nwa and then Delta. I got a piece of the red tail when leaving nwa but have nothing commemorative from Delta!

  12. I had to get one of these gift cards, but I just couldn’t swing it financially. Be a nice Xmas gift though.
