Delta employees rightfully enjoyed a great Valentine’s Day: a big bonus and plane dedicated to their honor. Plus, cell phones and other electronics may provide clues for investigators trying to solve the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash.
Before we get to those headlines, here’s a quick recap of this week on Rene’s Points!
We’re often asked which purchases — other than luggage and onboard food & beverage — trigger Amex airline incidental credit for the personal and business Platinum cards. I confirmed cash balances on Pay with Miles tickets do the trick. Some readers added helpful data points, as well!
René showed us why it’s important to get your partner airlines’ PNR (or reservation number).
Check out the video of a guy punching a woman’s seat — because she reclined. And on Friday, Delta CEO Ed Bastian gave his two cents to the great seat reclining debate!
A Delta flight attendant wasn’t happy with a couple of exit row passengers. Read what happened — and tell us if you think she was right.
Did you spend a jillion dollars on your personal or business Delta Reserve card during January? Your bonus MQM and SkyMiles should’ve posted by now.
Good news for Delta Basic Economy passengers is bad news for Medallions: they’re seeing more upgrades!
Finally, I took my family to the Holiday Inn & Suites in Anaheim. Someone left a souvenir in the jacuzzi.
In case you missed them, here are a few mileage runs we posted this week!
- NICE! Estimated $8045 Delta MQD — Vancouver to Seoul BUSINESS CLASS Mileage Run! (Plus ~30,172 MQM!)
