I was not even going to talk about this. I was mildly surprised when the new BP was handed to me the first time recently. Like most things in my life, I like things “the way they are”. When I get used to something it can be hard to change. But if it is better, I am all for it. On FT and at the Delta Blog and in the press they are talking about this so now it is my turn.
So is the new pass better? I mean we all have our own opinions as to what looks best. Just look at my fun with the new DeltaPoints.com logo. Some love it, some like others better. So there is no making everyone happy.
[EDIT: from reader comments about old NWA pass it looked like this]
I do like the fact that soon you will be able to have multiple flights all on one boarding pass. That will be a big plus. They prominently put the gate and terminal in the middle of the pass, but I will trust my phone app as they change all the time so the usefulness is minimal to me plus on my last flight they were just a dash on my BP. In the old one you always could find your seat and that is one of the most important things for you and it is not as prominent on the new one.
They do now hide your skymiles number but still show full name, confirmation number and ticket number. Is this too much info? So let your fellow blog readers know. You tell me what you think. Is it better? Like the old one better? Step in the right direction but needs work? Let us know. I will do the random.org thing and give away a set of drink coupons if you tell us! – Rene
