Delta spells out miles needed to earn free flights

DALLAS (AP) — Delta is providing more details about changes to its frequent-flier program after complaints about the overhaul from some travelers.

Starting in 2015, customers will earn miles based on how much they spend, not just miles flown.

Delta on Thursday released charts showing how many miles you'll need to earn a free trip. That's a key piece of information for SkyMiles customers that Delta had planned to hold back until late this year.

Delta is leaving the number of miles a frequent flier needs unchanged on many trips. In some cases, it's lowering the miles needed.
