new fonts on delta-com

I spend way too much time staring at the Delta.com home page. I also spend a bunch of time looking at my upcoming flights. You see I have to as unless I click and expand the reservation I do not know there has been a change to my schedule. The exception is if it is so bad that I get an e-mail from Delta about it. How about a little notice that there is a change just looking at the full list? But I am off topic.

Have you noticed something looking different at Delta.com? I have! The font they use and the look and feel of the pages at Delta are much crisper and cleaner. It is a small change but a noticeable and MUCH better one. Not just that, but the pages are smoother and change faster. Have you noticed this? So well done Delta “IT” I like these small but noticeable improvements.

my delta home page delta points blog

Now one of my BIGGEST pet peeves that would be SOOOOOOOOOOO simple to change. Notice my home page above on Delta. Do you see what is under the bottom? No you don’t. What is it I have all those red arrows pointing at?

where it should be - hello!

Oh, it is the advisory warning about weather or whatever I REALLY need to know about but it is often covered up or hard to get to. Why not move it like I have shown to the top in RED where I can see it and click it when I need to see it. Hello – McFly – Hello! This is not that hard, right?

So tell me. You like the new changes on Delta.com. What else should they change to make the home page better (and don’t say more award space as we all know that one)! – René

  1. I’ve noticed the iPhone app seems to be caching a lot more data and loads pages a lot faster. Now the only waits are for DB queries, and not data that could be saved locally.

  2. In my itinerary list, I’ve noticed that trips where a schedule change has occurred will show a small red exclamation icon. That has made it easy to see which itineraries have changes all at once.
