schedule change saturday what not to do

Yep, like a broken record, they are changing flights again. This time for me they were all minor changes that just required me to call the medallion line and have the rep “clean up” the reservation (friends don’t let friends click stuff on Delta.dumb). I would see all the links in THIS POST before you make any changes that are not minor ones like mine.

There is, what seems like, a non-Targeted Delta promo. Yeah. But it is only for 1000 bonus SkyMiles. Booo! Hey free points are free points (after two tasks). Those of us who have a Delta AMEX card should be able to get the points simply by using the card and doing one of the other items on the list of partner qualifiers.

I think a bunch of readers missed it so here is a reminder that you can get 2 free “top shelf” drinks with your Delta AMEX card in the Sky Clubs this month with “The Bar” or luxury bars. Want a mimosa for you and your wife before that long trip? You can get it free just by showing your Gold, Platinum or Reserve Delta AMEX card (personal or business)!

Lastly Delta partners Shuttle America and Go Jet Airlines are having some real issues with technology that has ended up with a bunch of cancellations. I got bitten last week and Delta went so far as to warn it’s pilots to have alternative options when commuting on the airlines. I have a request in to Delta to see if we should expect more Shuttle America and Go Jet Airlines issues this week and will post if I get more info. Just check your flights often this week if you are booked on jets that “look like” Delta jets but are not. – René
