It is really fun being a Delta focused blogger. Clearly I love “my” beloved airline and we all know it IS the best airline in the world. From the best seats, to reliability and on-time, to customer service, to wifi and on and on the list never ends!

But you know what, there is a reason I stared the Fireside chats as a regular weekly feature commencing with the founder of BoardingArea Randy Petersen. You see these guys and gals are good. Not just a little good, but really good. And a bunch of them either love flying Delta or just know a thing or two about our airline. Like what? Look just a few:

  • One of our two experts on traveling with little ones, Mommy Points, alerted me to a deal I could not pass up on to Hawaii (more to come soon).
  • A soon to be Diamond Medallion Delta flyer (and excellent Delta Points bag handler 🙂 ), MJ on Travel has a great post about booking with Pay With Miles in 1st class. It is neat that you can earn MQMs and RDMs when spending Skymiles this way.
  • Then our own Gary from View from the Wing, who seems to have a bit of a thing about Delta, sorta says hummmm about the wording changes to the Delta award charts. Delta does enough sneaky as-is but this to me does just seem to be a wording thing.
  • Stefan our own Rapid Travel Chai who is also a Delta Diamond (maybe leaving us for UA but time will tell) does get to fly a bunch on the company dime. But, even so, he warns about issues with Delta promotions. I just HATE Delta targeted promotions. Just about all of them are UBER-targeted, just make me MAD, and even when you sign up you may get a ROCK as Stefan shows!
  • Then we have Jake from modhop who has just a kool blog idea going. He takes a peak at a place I never knew existed at MSP (did you?)! I tend to spend most of my time in Skyclubs but need to go walkabout more I think!

Anyway, I hope you peek at these posts from my colleagues recently as well as all of the BoardingArea bloggers – especially when they talk about our Delta! – René

  1. @Rene – After three more joint emails with Delta and Starwood cc’d, the points have finally posted to my Starwood account today! …and I must say, after some initial confusion, Delta was much more helpful than SPG!

  2. I haven’t flown Delta since 1985. I swore off of them after a horrible flight from DTW to MCO. Then when they merged with NW it became a double no! We were held “hostage” on the tarmac for over 2 hours. In a plane that as hotter than “hades’ I’ve been in saunas cooler than this plane.
