Delta will boost its schedule a bit in July.

And a woman without a ticket bypassed security and snuck onto a Delta flight — and tried using a selfie as her photo identity.

Those are some of today’s travel stories I thought you, too, may find interesting.

Delta Adding 1,000 Flights in July

Delta Air Lines announced today it’s reintroducing 1,000 flights to its July schedule.

While that’s great news for people wishing to travel, Delta noted its “July schedule will be approximately 70 percent smaller than the same time last year, including reductions of about 65 percent for U.S. domestic travel and nearly 75 percent for international.”

Flights will be added across the system.

While the US will see some nonstop additions, Delta seems most excited about its service resumptions to Latin America and the Caribbean. “Flight additions are focused on popular vacation spots close to the U.S. for travelers longing for a beach trip, particularly gateways to Cancun and markets like Los Cabos, Montego Bay, Nassau, St. Thomas and Punta Cana.”

Weekly service from LAX to Sydney will resume next month. Plus, the airline will add weekly flights from Atlanta to Seoul-Incheon.

Reports are emerging about a woman who snuck past TSA officers in Orlando and conned her way on to a Delta flight.

When asked for identity, she produced a selfie. She was asked to leave.

    called Delta last week to find out where my refund was after waiting 3 months. I called on the Elite line. My wait time was 9 1/2 hours. Not a joke. Got a call back in 9 1/2 hours but seriously. Customer service for an Elite??????
    Now they are no longer responding via Twitter? OMG

  2. @Jerry Udell, if you’re a typical polyglot like most international elite travellers, consider calling their foreign language call centers or English language call centers abroad. My rule is to follow the sun. If local call centers are too busy, make an international call (free if you know how to manipulate VOIP calls) to a country that’s past business hours. So, from the USA, call the foreign language call centers in Europe. Or wait till past 9am Singapore time to call there. DL’s call center (prev NWA call center) staff are very competant.
