First things first. Like just about every Saturday this past weekend (if you did not check) some really strange Schedule Change Saturday changes have hit a number of our flights. You can check these old posts for help if you are new to this:
- Delta, you are “startin’ to damage my calm” with all these schedule / equipment changes & NO NOTICE AT ALL!
I had an international one that only had a regional jet impacted but I was smart enough NOT to click anything on Delta.dumb and called. Even the Delta Diamond rep had issues and had to get a supervisor on the line. Had I just clicked on stuff I expect very bad things would have happened to me. Please take the time to read the linked posts above.
There are a bunch of other weird things going on in the land of Delta IT and we should always be in fear when REV MGT tells them to start making changes. I fear we are soon in for some massive negative changes when it comes to SkyMiles but I hope I am wrong and the recent brutal 12% business class unannounced changes are enough for a while (but do not count on that). The SkyMiles team are only happy and earning their keep when they are cutting and decimating the value of our points so stand by for the other shoe to drop soon. Reader Michael emailed me the above strange search result but when you click through it defaults to the standard hidden award charts. Be very afraid folks!
What else is making my head hurt this Monday? If you have not noticed Global Upgrade space is really thin right now. Now wait, that is not new all GU space is always thin! 😉
Seriously though there are other issues. Readers are almost daily e-mailing me when should we expect the +1 elite perks to kick in. I know only what Delta has published at this point and that is Fall. You may say we are almost “in” fall and I agree. Considering that right now a Comfort Plus upgrade could result in you NOT getting a 1st class upgrade I think Delta has larger IT issues to fix than adding a new perk. Maybe, like pre-ordering 1st class meals, it will happen before the end of the year.
Any other strange out of the ordinary results impacting you on the ground, in the air or on the Delta web? Please share with us all! – René
