During my last mileage run I have seen some new features at Delta.com. One of them is Non-Rev flyers (i.e. those who either work for Delta and fly free or someone on a buddy pass) are now displayed on the upgrade list. Now showing non-rev’s on the standby list itself is not new, but showing how many Non-Rev flyers is interesting to me (there are many who work for Delta that read DeltaPoints btw).
Anther nice feature is that when there is a schedule change to your flights that does not work, the time will show up RED on your list of all your flights. Now at least you don’t have to click on each one to see if there has been a change as in the past. This has been a HUGE complaint and this makes it just a little simpler to see when you do have a change and a bunch of trips booked. This is when the list is working. This past week I have not been able to pull up my list and must enter each confirmation to see it. Anyone else have this bug pop up this week?
But, I have also noticed that if Delta can make a change work they will just email you the change and your itinerary will just be updated. It is up to YOU to know the rules and check vs the original ticket to see if you can use this for a better change you like free of charge! Most causal flyers will simply not know what they are missing out on.
I would love your input. What changes to Delta.com do you like and what changes do you not care for? Comment below on the blog and let us and Delta know, good or bad, for a chance at some DP swag (ps I only have medium/small T-shirt size left)! – Rene
