Without getting into the question of if the “new & improved” Delta.com web site is better or worse (I think most feel the latter), I wanted to help you find the location where your Global Entry / TSA PRE or Known Traveler Number should be as Delta makes it very had to find.
First off, if you do not have Global Entry, it is just $100 for 5 years. That is a flat our bargain for the time it saves you, and keep in mind if you get the AMEX Platinum Membership Rewards card you will get that cost rebated back to you when you pay for it with the card! When Lisa & I came back from Grand Cayman we were in Seat 1A&B and made it from the airplane door through customs and were re-screened in under 20 min (that included claiming & rechecking our bags in customs that were Priority tagged).
Above is where to look on the back of your Global Entry card. That is the number you will want to carefully and correctly input in Delta.com. You find this by starting with “My Delta” from the home page.
Then you go to “View My Profile” tab
Then go to “Basic Info” tab and open that
Then, under secure flight passenger date click on the “edit” button on the right
Then, at long last, you can click on the drop down arrow for the “Add Redress or Know Traveler Number” so that the box will open up for you to enter. [EDIT: also be sure and check you NAME, MIDDLE NAME & LAST NAME fields are right]
Wow. That is a lot of steps and why does Delta make this so hard to find compared to the OLD way you did it on Delta.com before? The other big perk of having this is the “3 beeps” at the TSA check point when you get to go to the short line and avoid the nude-O-scope and keep your shoes on and laptop in the bag! 🙂 – Rene
