    My experience has been the same as yours, with Delta having much higher mileage requirements and more limited availability. We used to live in the Twin Cities (a large Delta hub) and now we are not near a hub. It was the same in both places and we have essentially quit trying to use them. We still have 75,000 Delta miles remaining and when we burn them I doubt I will ever fly this airline again. Our experiences have been so much better with American, United and Southwest that there is really no comparison.

    Maybe it is a East Coast (or mid-west) vs. West Coast thing? United requires 150K each way to Europe (they may have increased further when they adjusted everything upwards on Nov 1 2017) for Polaris class, 180K each way to Asia.

    Delta requires 70K to 110K on DeltaOne for one way to/from Europe. So I can get a round trip business class on Delta for 1-way ticket on United.

    My last travel package, earlier this month, resulted in the 132,000 United miles posting in 48 hours (a bit faster than advertised). I expect the 25,000 additional miles before the end of January.

    As an update, last week I converted 250K MRP for a Category 6 five-night certificate and 120K Delta SkyMiles; hotel certificate posted to my account instantly, Delta SkyMiles posted on the following day. I had a bit of a run-around, when I called Marriott Reservations line they referred me to MVCI Representative, which in turn pointed me to Marriott Rewards line; Marriott Rewards specialist was able to do this fairly quickly.
    Hotel certificate expires one year after it has been issued. This is an excellent deal.

    Why is it odd; I've never done this conversion in the past, now that I've acquired enough points and started researching the topic it has come to my attention (via TPG) that an MVCI owner can claim a five-night certificate (instead of widely advertised seven-night package, so naturally, I turned to MVCI owners for additional info.

    PS: Owner Services reps are not able to process these, it had to be done through a Marriott Rewards department.
