Everything old is new again as Delta keeps tinkering with the IT for the Delta.com home page (related – workaround for cartoon-like new Delta flight booking page). The latest thing you may have seen popping up the past week or so is what you see above — that is, you have to choose each time you log-in if you want to use your personal or business profile (tip – there is a drop-down if you want to switch if you choose the wrong one – see below).
First up on this tip: it is not for everyone. If you have negotiated or company rates with Delta, you are going to have to put up with this and this post is not for you. If that is you just keep in mind you need to use the personal login/drop-down tab to book SkyMiles tickets.
OK, what about everyone else?
The reason you are seeing this tab is likely due to you having a SkyBonus number associated with your “My Delta” flight preferences page (use THIS LINK when you are logged in to Delta.com to see if that is the case). You may not care about SkyBonus anymore as Delta has for years now in “Keep Descending” fashion destroyed what once was a sweet program for small business owners. Thus for my wife, Lisa, it is all but pointless for her to have that number in her profile.
It was a quick and simple click to remove the SkyBonus number and then log out. When she logged back in the above dual login bug me request was gone. Problem solved – sweet!
A final note on the above – you may be “helping” someone keep their 5+ Skybonus user requirement going by having a Skybonus number attached to your profile. If that is the case you will simply have to either A) put up with the added nag log-in screen or B) explain to your friend that they will have to find someone else to “pad” their numbers! 😉 – René
