In a show of solidarity with the good people of Ukraine currently being invaded by Russia, Delta has immediately ended its codeshare relationship with Russian national flag carrier Aeroflot.

Per Delta:

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

“Delta has withdrawn our codeshare services operated in conjunction with Russian national airline, Aeroflot, effective immediately.

We have removed our code from Aeroflot-operated services beyond Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport and removed Aeroflot’s code from Delta-operated services from Los Angeles and New York-JFK. Accommodations will be made for customers affected by these changes.”

Meanwhile, Aeroflot remains in SkyTeam, for now (I’m not sure if that means one could still book Aeroflot with Skymiles) but I have a feeling that SkyTeam may take its own action soon enough.

Notably, Aeroflot has also been banned from UK airspace, though the US has not yet enacted a similar measure. As of now, Aeroflot still flies to the US.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
