swag winner stuff not cost delta

First congratulations to our winner #84 RD who says: Choice rewards for gold would be a great option! Lounge passes for credit cards too.

I will contact you RD soon via e-mail to get your prize to you. Thanks for your comment.

Now on to readers’ ideas. You guys really rock and you came up with a bunch of good ones! Here are some of the ones I really liked!

  • Spencer F says: Include a couple of one-time lounge passes with the Gold Amex credit card.
  • Ryan404 says: Rollover MQS
  • Eva Lau says: Self scan SKY (DM) faster boarding
  • Nina says: Bottle of water each seat.
  • Bill G says: Allow “purchase” of Choice Benefits with sky miles.
  • Young_ThoRough says: How bout keeping it simple digitize the HOOU into the fly delta app or medallion bag tag barcode.
  • Susan M. Says: Allow free access to the Skyclub to anyone with a domestic first class ticket.
  • DJ S says: Allow the same award space to any level medallion level.
  • SAM says: Improve the Million Miler Program by giving Gold instead of Silver.
  • Tim says: Diamonds and Platinums should have access to at least one free movie on longer haul flights.
  • Many want AMEX holder to board after FO’s. I like it. DM’s with 1st class and then PM, GM & FO’s. AMEX and paid boarding zone 1.

I love this next one but that will cost the company money as unless they are cutting they are not “enhancing”.

  • Julia says: Just don’t do anything for at least one year (i.e. NO more devaluations).

I hope Delta takes these ideas and thinks about some of them as they really are good. I hate to say it but I now live in fear of Fridays and as they say I bet you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! 2014 is not going to be a fun year for us all – René

  1. AA is offering targeted status matches for elites of other airlines… sorry Delta it’s been a great run… I really liked you guys… but… AA here I come!

  2. Just about all of these ideas will cost delta money. Improvements to the chaotic boarding process will save delta money and make fliers happy.

    • @John – I disagree as they will not cost much of anything and saving flyers from going to AA or UA will even at a tiny cost save the company money. IMO that is.

  3. as a GM the option to have AMEX holder boarding after FO’s is the best. DM’s with 1st class and then PM, GM & FO’s. AMEX and paid boarding zone 1 is logical and will help order while boarding. It is a cluster when everyone is pushing to board.
