A few readers and I opened our Fly Delta apps Wednesday and discovered some pleasant surprises. Our travel vouchers and Delta Amex Companion Certificates and were seemingly extended again a full year — into 2022!
A technical problem on Delta Air Lines’ Fly Delta app caused concerns of a possible data breach earlier today. The airline reassured us no breaches occurred.
Some users logged on to their accounts — and saw other passengers’ itineraries.
Delta Air Lines allows SkyMiles members to keep up to four credit (or charge) cards in their virtual wallets. This speeds up airfare purchases and, overall, makes the process pretty convenient.
Plus, certain Delta American Express credit card benefits are available only if the cards are part of your Delta wallet.
But because not all credit cards are created the same, there are different reasons you may want several options in your Delta wallet.
Here are the cards I personally use for my Delta purchases — and why.
UPDATED: 3:00 PM EST/12:00 PM EST: Based on reader comments and my personal tests, it seems the issue is resolved. Back to work, everyone! 😉
Shut out of your Delta Air Lines SkyMiles account? You’re not the only one. Delta is experiencing a known technical issue right now preventing SkyMiles members from logging in — and being able to view and change itineraries through their accounts.

Well if you are using a Windows phone, and have not tried to fire up the Fly Delta App for a while I have some bad news for you – you can’t anymore! According to WindowsCentral.com when you fire up the app you will see: “We’re sorry for the inconvenience as this app is no longer supported. You can always visit Delta.com from your mobile phone to book a flight, check in and view flight status.” Ouch! Now I can hear the iPhone folks screaming just get an iOS product since that is the one Delta clearly loves. But keep in mind there is a long history with Delta supporting Windows OS products (see the way back machine) and we, as Delta flyers, should know that Delta has really bragged up the fact that pilots are using Windows based tablets in the cockpit.
