I love kittens, chocolate and Woodford Reserve. What I love more than ANY of those is the mighty Delta schedule change and lots of them have loaded today.
Now some helpful tips that can make it so great for you. First, read this post.
Next, know there is fudge room. I have had changes in as little as 15 minute allow BIG changes. Just ask the reps if it is enough and see if their computers will allow an even exchange. You can often find MUCH better routes.
Or, if there is a BIG change, before you call look at all the “legal” routes from A-B and try to ask for the ones you want that are best for you whatever that “best” may be.
Next, I strongly suggest you NEVER just click accept. Things can go VERY wrong and often do so let the rep “clean up” the reservation for you and do the accepting because if thing go sideways they can fix it right then and there.
Lastly be sure to check your connection time. Even a 5 minute change could bump you into an illegal connection and you can work that for better flights as well.
