I am working on a full report of my latest mileage run as well as a cost breakdown and, yes even with all the crazy changes going on with Delta, a mileage run can still be worth while!
But I have some ideas for some changes Delta can make that would have a good impact and yet not cost them at what matters most to them – money.
1) Change boarding to 1st class and Diamond Medallions at same time. This is a perk the top level should get when they don’t get an upgrade.
2) Give better access to medallion reps for Silver Medallions. They are still medallions, at least reward them with good phone support.
3) Enforce the cabin bag “size check” at check-in or if all carry-on at boarding. Do this enough and boarding will go faster and maybe less forced checking of Zone 2 & 3 flyers.
4) Give some Choice Benefits to Gold & even Silver Medallions. It does not have to be all the perks of PM & DM but how about something like a few Skymiles or some GoGo day passes or even a Skyclub pass or a free amenity coupon or two. This can not cost much of anything and would show appreciation.
These are the main ones I can think of that to me would go a long way at really “enhancing” things for flyers and yet not cost the company money. Can you think of any others that would not COST? I want to know and this is the point of this week’s SWAG Saturday. The rules as each week are here so check them out.
Time to get creative. For a chance at a nice 10,000mAh Astro E3 power brick and a Craig rechargeable bluetooth speaker I need your best idea of what Delta could do for us that would cost them little or no money. What real improvement do you want to see that Delta could really do for almost free? – René
