How to save on your SkyMiles and pay less

Although Delta Airlines does not use China Airlines operated flights, you can redeem your SkyMiles on China Airlines’ flights. This means you can use your Delta Miles to book award seats on China Airlines, a Skytrax certified 4-star airline and Taiwan’s national carrier. China Airlines flies to many cities in Asia as well as between the United States and Taiwan. When redeeming your SkyMiles, you’re only allowed to book Economy, Premium Economy, and Business Class award tickets, but no First Class.

The biggest downside to booking award seats on China Airlines via the Delta award search engine is that Delta’s award search engine doesn’t show all China Airlines flights. It typically shows you direct flights (displayed as the “cheapest” ticket) but misses out on connecting flights, which are often a lot cheaper. As a result, you end up paying a lot more Miles.
