I admit it. If I ever want an answer, my very first place is Google. It is simple and works and I know it. Habits are very hard to break. But I was talking the other day to my Delta contact and he asked me how much readers USE the Delta search function? I thought that was a funny request plus I was feeling a bit guilty that I knew inside I tend to just use Google. I also shared that “MY” Delta Points search bar is clear on the blog but is not used as much as I would like readers to use it. He suggested I remind my readers about just how much information, and correct information (when the links are not broken that is) can be found at Delta.com. So let’s take a look.
First, as you can clearly see from the screen shot above, the search box is in the top right corner on each and every page you navigate to on Delta.com. It is also a smart search, so if you are a bit dyslexic, like your Delta Points blogger, and say type a word wrong, you will get: “Showing results for luggage. Search for lugggage instead?” So what does the luggage search show? Take a look.
Tons of correct info about how many, how heavy a bag can be. Domestic, International, carry-on or pets, you name it you will find it on one of these links.
Let’s do one more. How about Medallion. I love the fact that my DELTA AMEX RESERVE card gets me up to 30,000 MQM’s each year with spend (plus you can get 10,000 if you have not had the card for the past 12 months both personal and business). As you can see above, you will find out about the different levels of qualifying miles it takes as well as the benefits at each level and on and on.
And I touched on the Delta Points search bar. It is also on every page you navigate to within Delta Points. It does have a button where you can switch to search for JUST posts that have that key word or topic from Delta Points blog. Or, if you choose the default button setting, you will search all the BoardingArea blogs for that key word. Let’s say you do just that and look for Sweden. Here is what you find:
So there you are. Always know I am most happy and pleased to respond to emails, but both Delta & I ask you to please check out the search box first to see if you can find the answer you need instantly rather than having to wait for us to get back to you. And thank you for reading the blog! – René
