Any difference pro/con booking personal trip directly on Delta vs AmexTravel? My understanding is I get the 5x Amex points regardless.

Doesn’t usually matter. For example, with the personal AMEX Platinum you get the 5X points regardless of how you book - they’re awarded based on the vendor ID in the transaction.

That said you can price compare between the two. Occasionally AMEX has deals, particularly on international business/first fares, though for the most part price will be the same or close for nonrefundable coach fares.
