Time to catch up on all the latest news you may want to be aware of in Delta land. First off a simple way to game some free Gogo sessions due to ongoing tech issues with Delta.com & Gogo. We all should know that Delta.com and the Fly Delta App should be both FREE and FAST to use on all Delta flights with Gogo. Well according to Flyertalk it is not working so goodly right now. The result is Gogo is handing out 15 minute free use codes up in the air so you can get online. Considering how slow Gogo is I bet you will need more than one (just say’in)!
Some good news for those of us who like points. China Eastern has been promoted from Group 3 earning by Delta a.k.a. one step up from the trash bin to Group 1 a.k.a. the golden child group according to Delta. Just be sure you take note on the really cheap fare class still. Now if we could only move a few more up that list like Korean Air!
Tomorrow, it seems, Delta and the pilots will be meeting to see if they can hammer out an agreement for early 2016. Gosh it would be nice if they offered them a decent deal. Because if they don’t, I think they may just run into some REAL resistance from the group this time. Just my guess but a good one I think.
Could DAL stock go to almost $70 a share? Deutsche thinks so. If oil stays low, they get a pilot contract and Delta FAs don’t start talking union again it could happen. Then again if it goes the other way then DAL could be at $30 again. (disclaimer, I hold no DAL stock nor do I plan to buy any).
Oh it looks like the Skyteam AirFrance jet bomb threat was a fake according to CNN. It looked very real but was made out of cardboard.
Well it is that time to see where we all end up with our MQM totals for the year. I personally will land around 280,000 so will roll over (by the end of January 2016) about 155,000 so I will be Diamond until 1FEB18 on or around the 15th when I have spent $30,000 on my Delta AMEX Reserve card. How will you end the year? Comment below! – René
