Some good news but this may not last or may be a bug! Back in January I blogged about the trick you can use that will allow you to hold an award ticket for a few hours. Not as good as a few days but as you can see from the screen shot above, from Delta.com, when using the hold trick, it is currently allowing holds for just about 24 hrs in my testing the past few days.
I will not go over all the steps again as you can peek at the old post. Also, I have no idea if this is a bug that will be fixed or if Delta is being nice to us and letting us “unofficially” have 24hr holds (hey we can hope right?)!
Please do not trust this HOLD will HOLD for a full day. But if you need to hold for a short time, to say transfer over some Membership Rewards points you have earned, this could be just the ticket! – René
