Yesterday, in just about everyone’s e-mails, you got a snazzy and colorful marketing bit about some new signature drinks you can request on Delta jets for $8. Oh, and we can still get the 20% off if we pay with our Delta AMEX cards too! Sounds peachy right?
Not so much when you think about the fact that PRE August 1st drinks were just $7 each on Delta flights. Thus these new fruity concoctions cost 14.3% more than they would have been last month.
Oh, and I do TRULY love and respect Delta FA’s. They do an amazing job with us picky flyers, but being bartenders is not their first line of work. I think many found out about these new drinks when they were pointed out to them. Maybe marketing and training should talk a little bit more.
Anyway, this does make the buying of drink coupons online before you fly at $5 each an even bigger bargain than before (until they realize this has not been updated and jump the price there too that is).
One more thing this does is make the value of spending Skybonus points for drink coupons worth just a tiny bit more! 😉 – René
