Finding Delta awards in calendar view (Air France is not the answer)

Air France Flying Blue is the only Sky Team loyalty program that partners with all common transferable points programs: Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards, and Marriott/SPG.  As a result, it can be a useful program for booking Sky Team awards, including Delta awards.

In my case, I’m betting I have received this offer as the annual fee is due to post on this account soon. It wouldn’t be surprising if this kind of offer may also be available on other cards around renewal time as Barclays often sends out offers to…
