I really thought about having this post as a Rookie Wednesday post but it is so important (and some don’t read “rookie” posts) that I wanted it to stand on it’s own and become part of the “Travel Essentials” tab here on the blog. Do you notice a tiny little problem with the info from “My Delta” and my reservations above. Do you see what time I land and what time my next flight departs? And lastly notice the wording where the arrow points? Yeah, if not so sad it would be funny. And here is the really frustrating part: I got no notice from Delta! Delta really seems to be working on improving some IT issues. For example, they recently did a massive upgrade to the Fly Delta App that should, if things are working right, push gate and seat updates to you unlike before that had bits set…

Overview & Some Important Tips AeroMexico 737-800 MCO-MEX The AeroMexico Skyteam lounge MEX Regional ERJ-190 MEX-SDQ-MEX AeroMexico 737-700 MEX-MCO Totals and results (was it worth it)? It’s funny – for the most part I really like Delta regional partners. No, not the EVIL CRJ200s as they are so bad it makes me miss the old NWA SAAB turbo props. But I did have high hopes for the AeroMexico regional partner ride to and from Santo Domingo or SDQ airport. I really shouldn’t have. We boarded really late after an outstanding fabulous a visit to the Skyteam lounge in MEX. Considering the time change I was ready to drop into our full flat seats and sleep the night away. If you were wondering, no, AeroMexico regional partners do not offer full flats. They offer: One of the folks on this run commented how these beat-up seats felt nostalgic. That is one…

Other meal reviews: 3 Cheese Pasta Dinner Steak and Potatoes Cold Salmon with Rice Turkey Salad Asian Chicken Salad Turkey Sandwich Chicken Salad & Pasta side Lemon Chicken (nasty – AVOID) Meatballs with spinach & ricotta cheese This year I looked at a number of Delta domestic first class meal choices for lunch and dinner as you can see above. Most are either good or even very good. A few are, well, a bit disappointing. If you look at the turkey sandwich review you will feel right at home in 5th grade. But it was on a regional jet you may say. You may think since only cold or chilled choices were an option there is only so much an airline can do. And, you would be wrong. Take a look at the photo at the top of this post for the Chicken Salad that was presented to me. First…

Did you catch it? No, I am not talking about the quote from Delta’s CEO Ed Bastian in the Airwaysnews.com piece about SkyMiles that made me scream at my computer screen and then sigh and want to cry: “…I realize that there is a component of our loyalty program where people are a little frustrated with what they use to expect to what is actually happening today…” – Delta CEO Ed Bastian Airwaysnews.com Yes, that is so sad. Ed we are not frustrated, we are furious over the mega cuts and some are departing Delta over the changes your team has made. Yes, the changes this week are good. Keep thinking of ways to make things better, not worse, for us. You have a long way to go. No what just amazed me was a little part that focused on the coming CS100 & CS300 jets that my blog broke…

Welcome to a first ever attempt at a PodCast. This may not work as it should but I wanted to test the waters with today’s post. So take a listen and see what you think: Click the “play” button to enjoy today’s RenésPoints PodCast! I have also included a few shots that expand on what I am talking about in the narrative. I have to tell you I am all about my upgrades and will use the Delta system and perks (and tech) to make sure you and I are the ones who attain each and every upgrade we can (without doing the shameful act of paying for it – no matter what the price). Again, please comment below if you enjoyed today’s audio post and you would like to see more of these on Sunday posts now and then! – René
