When it comes to inflight WiFi, it seems Delta has gotten bored and wants to see other people (or other WiFi providers, at least).

And Salt Lake City’s big airport expansion might finish two years early and under budget.

We’ll get those headlines and many more in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this week at Rene’s Points!

We asked readers if they’d buy Global Upgrade Certificates.

Delta’s 777 are retiring sooner than expected. This comes after the airline is added 1,000 in the coming weeks.

Missing @Delta on Twitter and Facebook? Don’t worry — they’ll return.

A cruise line is resume sailings in a few weeks. Here’s their plan for dealing with COVID-19. On a somewhat related note, Priority Pass issued its safety guidelines for participating lounges.

A $4,000 travel tax credit is being explored by President Trump.

We decided to wade back into the mileage run waters (posting them, at least). Later that day, we posted an LAX to JFK run.

The Chase Freedom card’s 5% bonus for July, August, and September is Amazon (and Whole Foods…)!

Today (Saturday) is the final day to purchase IHG points and receive a 100% bonus.

  1. I took my first flight since Feb 18 when i came back from manila via korea air and delta, so much has changed and not all for the bad. I thought the planes were so clean and smell clean. The flight attendants and pilots were knocking themselves out with appreciatIon and care!!! I felt very honored to support the team and they seemed to be just as thrilled to see almost full flights (allowing for social distancing)!! I flew from Memphis to Phllie via Atlanta. And got first class upgrade into Phillie. The airports were busy busy and that made me happy as long as everyone is wearing a mask. We can deal with this virus and better adjust because it is not going away.
    On the Memphis/Atlanta segment the FA had all my info in his handheld phone and spoke with me afew minutes and expressed his thanks for being diamond and MM, it was not rehearsed but felt genuine and i enjoyed the chat. He then came to everyone in first and comfort to tell us the arrival gate and our next segment gate if we were going on…..that was fantastic!!
    American owns the Phillie airport but i refuse to be tempted with cheaper fares, Delta has earned every bit of my loyalty.

      The main issue with multiple vendors for Delta Wi-Fi would be if there is not free WiFi and you could not use a monthly pass with both vendors.
