Time for something less gloom and doom as I think we are all just sick of Skymiles2015 for a while. So on a fun note, I talked about before the frustration that the latest years of Skymiles cards do not have the “bar code” on them anymore to be used to board a flight and that we can make our own and print it and tape it to the cards (yes that does work).
Then I was reading about all of the “perks with the Fly Delta App and one of them was that you can use it to board a flight. I am not flying till next week so I pressed my friend MJ on Travel (a great blogger btw) to use his phone to board with his digital card and he was kind enough to try.
As you can see it worked, it spit out a seat card with all the relevant info and he was on his way.
One of the reasons I really like this is I can take a screen shot, like you see on the top of the page, and at times when my cell service is buggy or the app is not behaving nice, I can just pull up my digital Skymiles card and board (and I don’t have to print a new bar-code to tape to my new Diamond Medallion cow bell tags either).
Have you ever used your digital Skymiles card to board a flight?- René
