"Delta members can redeem their miles through September 2006 for travel through September 2007."

Thanks for that. I'll likely book one more SAA ticket using my Delta SkyMiles for a trip next Summer.

I'm traveling June 06 on Delta/SAA. Does this mean the only miles I can get for flying is on SAA? (If I'm reading correctly, I can't get Delta miles and can't get United miles)

sundowner,
It sounds like you can earn UA MP miles for SAA flights (you just can't redeem yet).
