KLM vs. Delta

We are booking a trip soon to AMS from DTW. We can either book directly from Delta or book through KLM with flights operated by Delta. Are there any advantages, flight services, etc, to booking through KLM? The price is the same.

No difference in booking with either KLM or Delta although if prices are the same I'd probably just book with the operating carrier i.e. Delta.

Assuming you are collecting Delta Skymiles, book with Delta. Should not be a difference either way, but I have found hiccups at times with miles posting for partner bookings. I had to notify Delta after my last AeroMexico coded, Delta operated flight since my miles didn't post automatically. Was several hundred dollars cheaper in that case, so it made sense to book the AeroMexico flight.

It really doesn't matter but given an option I would suggest keeping it DL. In addition to cost and mileage, also check to see if you can book seats if you're booking with the opposite carrier. That can also sometimes be a problem.

If the flights on the KLM site are operated by DL. book on the Delta site. All serboces will be the same regardless of where you book.

Delta, although in the end doubt it matters much
