It seems the Delta tech folks have been playing on Delta.com this week. Most of us are not all that impressed with Delta IT that works let alone all the stuff Delta hides from us like the award charts that Delta still uses to this day but wants us not to know about it.
But this new tab (see shot above) is a nice new quick navigation tool when you are not on the main Delta.com home page. Something similar to this was talked about in focus groups a while back and I am very pleased with it so far. A quick way to get to what is important to me when I travel and what to check on things like my upcoming trips with less clicks! #KeepClimbing.
The next one, well, I don’t think there are 37 advisories pending on the Delta advisories home page. Nor do I think we should be seeing templates here but I am sure they will fix it soon.
But what is a HUGE concern is what has happened to more than one Delta flyer on FlyerTalk this week and if it has happened to you, you need to be ON THIS NOW as I hope it is just a bug and not a change. I have tested Pay With Miles in coach and in 1st this year and got full MQM credit as I should have. But, if it is a new unannounced Delta change, it is a really really REALLY bad one and goes against what is posted on Delta.com.
Heck even the link to SkyMiles on the Delta.com home page goes to a broken link right now (yeah, we know SkyMiles is broken but still).
Speaking of investors day next Thursday I expect the rumor I talked about back in October, that is, that Delta will launch a real Premium Economy seat, will be announced on the 17th. This may have not been as great as I hoped as some have speculated that Delta Global Upgrade Certs will only allow you to upgrade from Coach to PE. Or, if you want Delta ONE with the certs, you will have to first buy PE to upgrade. We will see, but always know our dearest Delta always gives with one hand and takes with the other. – René
