Review Introduction - The Largest FFP in the World

Delta was one of the first airlines to launch a frequent flyer program. When the program was launched in 1981, it was called "Frequent Flyer" but the name was changed to the more distinctive "SkyMiles" in 1995. In 2000, the airline was one of the founding members of the global alliance, SkyTeam, partnering with AeroMexico, Air France and Korean Air.

The airline made headlines with its acquisition of Northwest Airlines in 2008, and the Delta SkyMiles and Northwest WorldPerks programs officially merged in October 2009. Also in 2009, Delta Air Lines celebrated 80 years of passenger service. SkyMiles is now the largest frequent flyer program in the world with more than 74 million members. The program has won over many travelers but has also angered many to the point of saying that Delta stands for "Driving Every Loyal Traveler Away". There have been many changes put into place for Delta SkyMiles over the last few years and as we all know, not everyone welcomes change.
