ATLANTA, Aug. 19, 2002—Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) has extended an offer allowing SkyMiles members to earn 3,000 miles for every Delta Vacations package purchased. Members also can save up to $300 with Delta Vacations when redeeming miles toward the purchase of a vacation package of three nights or more.
