First, if this was my 747, I would NEVER want it this close to the ground without gear down (just look at the wing vs ground when he banks off)! Now some more news:

  1. How about the new fare class alignment that is active today where V is effectively the new T?

  2. Regarding “V” Class, I also noticed a possible change in language regarding same day travel changes…

    “If you are a Medallion member currently confirmed for an upgrade in V class, you will be rebooked in Economy class and need to request an upgrade for your new flight.”

    Is that new? If so, why does it distinguish V, and not include LUT, etc?

    (sorry to go off topic)

  3. @Shawn – nothing is “off topic” as long it has to do with Delta so PLEASE ask away. Clearly this is “new” verbiage since V is a new fare class. It is strange the ONLY touch on V. Any upgrade you had, when you do a SDC, could be gone as you must be on the “list” again but many times it can come instantly. I will check on this. Txs – Rene
