Delta has just announced a series of new measures which it hopes will help passengers to continue practice social distancing in the air as well as on the ground. These measures include pausing advance complimentary upgrades and blocking seats in most cabins across the airline's remaining route network.
Delta has just announced that, following a review of its current fee waiver policies, it has decided to extend the change fee waiver period for select bookings through to May 2022. That's a date that's well over two years away and when you see which bookings get this exemption you'll also see that this isn't a cash reservation exercise by Delta - this appears to be a genuinely nice move.
Following the news that the United States is banning select travelers from entering the country if they have been traveling in any one of the 26 European countries signed up to the Schengen Agreement in the past 14 days, Delta is waiving change fees for bookings to/from certain European counties...including some countries not included in the ban.
American Airlines was the first US legacy carrier to waive change fees for travel across its network and now that Delta and United have both caught up and issued their own change fee waivers I thought that I may be helpful to show what all three carriers are offering in one single post.
I'm in the process of putting together a post showing exactly what each of the 3 US legacy carriers is offering with their "Change Fee Waivers" that have recently been announced, but there's one particular aspect of Delta's waiver that I'm struggling to understand because, to me, it looks more than a little odd...but I may be missing something.
Delta started taking delivery of the new Airbus A330-900neo back at the end of May and it has been operating the latest-generation aircraft on routes out of Seattle since July. So far we've seen the aircraft operating to Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo Narita but a recent schedule update shows Delta adding more A330-900neo service out of Seattle in 2020.
If you're a Delta flyer based in New Orleans the airline has some good news for you - as of today, 6 November 2019, the latest Sky Club is opening at Louis Armstrong New Orleans international airport.
Back in April of this year, Delta confirmed that it would not be fitting its aging 767 aircraft with it's new Delta One Business Class suites and, instead, it announced that a sub-set of its 767 fleet (the 767-400s) would be getting an entirely new (if not entirely different) Business Class seat.
South American airline LATAM has confirmed that it will be withdrawing from the oneworld alliance following the airline's decision to cease joint venture negotiations with American Airlines and enter into a partnership with Delta instead.
In comparison to some of the pretty impressive AMEX offers we've been seeing lately this latest offer aimed at cardholders booking Delta flights is a little tame...but it's still nice to get free cash back for doing not very much at all!
