I am looking for some information about the Delta American Express Gold credit card program that allows you to pay with miles. My sole reason for considering this this card is to be able to purchase a non-stop flight from San Francisco to Amsterdam in July, 2013 with the miles I have accumulated. The flights I am interested in are operated by KLM , but have a Delta (DL) flight number. Based on my searches at delta.com these non-flight flights seem to be blacked out for the regular sky miles rewards program. The cost of the flights are currently around $1,500, so my understanding of this program is that I will need to use about 150,000 miles to pay wish miles for the flight. Can anyone tell me if these flights are eligible for this program. In the terms and conditions of the programs it says:
No blackouts means that Pay with Miles can be used for any eligible flight available at delta.com on any day of the year. No inventory restriction means that Pay with Miles can be used for any open seat on any eligible domestic or international flight available at delta.com.
