Delta Air Lines Inc., taking a page out of loyalty programs offered by smaller U.S. carriers, said it would revamp its SkyMiles frequent-flier plan starting Jan. 1 of next year so that passengers will earn miles based on the prices of tickets purchased, not the distances flown. Delta, the nation's No. 3 airline by traffic, is the largest U.S. carrier to make the shift, following similar moves by Southwest Airlines Co., JetBlue Airways Corp. and Virgin America.
