The other day I blogged about the possible risk of ending up in a Delta BASIC fare class without knowing you are buying such a ticket. In my limited testing, the worst offender I found was Chase Bank using Ultimate Rewards points that basically gave you no warning you were being dumped into such a fare class. I tweeted to Chase about this and, 3 days later, they responded with the above comment. As of this date, no changes have happened on their web site and you still can end up in Delta BASIC with little or no warning from the Chase booking site. The issue here really boils down to the fight for fees and where you book matters to the airlines. Why? Consider just how important fees are to the airlines. They are the never ending “drug” of choice. If you think you are “over fee’d” right now…

I am always intrigued by airline surveys. Delta, as we know, has been sending out surveys about SkyMiles as I posted about and as well as my fellow blogger Adam (yes THAT Adam). But thanks to my Lufthansa 1st class trip that ended up coding as a paid 1st class trip (told ya it pays to put in partner FF program number on business class & 1st class award tickets) and getting full points I have been looked at as “someone special” by Lufthansa. This latest one is really way out there and I doubt any of the ideas will make it to a real jet but wow are they interesting. Take a look at them slide by slide. Having train style sleeper suites and a seat to go back to that is a more standard domestic non-sleeper type seat is an amazing idea. Lufthansa already sorta does this on…

It is hard to complain much about Lufthansa 1st class. It really is a treat. Delta may call their international business product “Delta ONE” now but it is nothing like Lufthansa 1st class. And with the broken award calendar, you may just spend as many points as the now devalued United awards on Lufthansa. But I digress. Back on point. Delta, when SkyRubles 2015 first came out, had a LONG survey sent out to many of us about what we think about the program. Clearly they did not listen. But it did give us some interesting insight into what they wanted to know. Lufthansa just sent me a long survey and you can click on the first slide then go next, next, next to see them all full screen: That is quite a long survey and I will be shocked at just how many 1st class flyers take the time…
