Delta will return to flying ex-LATAM A350s on its Los Angeles – Auckland route...

Since the launch of its LA - Auckland route, Delta has been using the A350-900s that it acquired from LATAM to fly between Los Angeles and Auckland but up until recently, the schedules showed Delta's original A350s taking over the route from 20 May and continuing to operate the route through the summer and through the next winter season. This is no longer the case.

Delta adds more flights to Shanghai from Detroit

Delta is bringing back its 3rd daily flight between Atlanta and London

As things stand, Delta offers a double daily service between Atlanta and London using its Boeing 767-400 aircraft, but once the summer season rolls along, not only will one of these flights be upgraded to a larger aircraft, the route will get back its 3rd daily flight that hasn't operated in seven years.

Delta delays the resumption of its Los Angeles – Shanghai route (again!)

Before the coronavirus pandemic, Delta operated over 300 flights across multiple routes to two cities in China - Beijing and Shanghai - but since the world began getting back to normal, Delta has been taking its time getting its old routes to China back up and running.

There’s an excellent Amex offer for Delta flyers [Targeted]

American Express is currently targeting select cardholders for one of the better Delta offers that I've seen in some time. The effective rebate that's available isn't particularly impressive, but the offer itself is easy to use and as you'll see below, the offer doesn't require you to make a Delta flight booking anytime soon.

Delta is resuming flights to Cuba next year

Delta has confirmed that it plans to restart service to Havana in the first half of next year following the route's suspension in March 2022. The route will operate twice daily from Miami and will link into Delta's service from ten other US airports.

Delta enhances its European summer schedule (in a good way!)

Delta has announced that next year's summer season will see it relaunching a number of routes that were suspended while we dealt with the pandemic, relaunching a number of routes that the airline hasn't operated for years, and launching at least one completely new route (albeit not a very interesting one!). Most importantly from my point of view, Los Angeles will finally be getting a little love.

Delta announces a huge order for an aircraft that Boeing has threatened not to...

After two or three years of rumors, Delta has used the Farnborough International Airshow to finally announce that it plans to throw Boeing a lifeline by ordering up to 130 of its 737 MAX aircraft. As with most aircraft orders that get announced at airshows, this order may or may not be fulfilled in the way that it's currently being presented but because this order involves the MAX 10, there's actually an outside chance that the order will not be fulfilled at all.

Delta will offer three new routes to Hawaii next winter

Odd: Disappearing Delta Amex offer has reappeared [Targeted]

Back in the middle of October, I wrote about a great deal that Amex had targeted to select cardholders in which they could earn $125 on just $300 of spending with Delta. Despite writing about this offer, I somehow forgot to add it to any of my targeted cards (not a proud moment) and when I finally remembered to do so, the offer had disappeared. Today, the offer is back, so if you missed out the first time around check your accounts because you may have been given an unexpected second chance.

Delta Expands Flights To Paris & Adds A Route To The South Of France

Delta Has Extended All Voucher Expiration Dates & Its Global Travel Waiver

Delta Is Already Scaling Back Transatlantic Plans For Winter Season

It was less than four weeks ago that Delta first unveiled its transatlantic plans for the upcoming winter season (and for summer 2020) and, at the time, I pointed out that the proposed plans looked ambitious in the light of what was going on around us. Delta has now posted a long list of updates to its worldwide schedules for winter 2020/21 and it looks like the airline has come to the same conclusion that I did as it cuts routes and frequencies proposed just 4 weeks ago.

Delta’s Misleading Cancellation Email Really, Really Annoyed Me

Just as I was arriving home last night, I heard the iPhone in my pocket "ping" in the way it always does when a new email drops into my inbox and, upon closer inspection, it turned out to be an email from Delta letting me know that my December trip home to Los Angeles had been cancelled. Considering the state of flux that the airline schedules are currently in, the cancellation of my flight wasn't a huge surprise so I wasn't overly disappointed, but the wording Delta used in its email really, really annoyed me.

Delta Confirms It Is Retiring Its Boeing 777 Fleet This Year

Delta is the proud operator of 18 Boeing 777 aircraft and it has refitted each of these aircraft with its highly acclaimed "Delta One Suites" that have taken US airline premium cabins to a whole new level. With that in mind, it's more than a little surprising to see Delta announce that it will be retiring all 18 of these aircraft by the end of this year.

Delta Extends Change Waiver Fees On Select Booking Through 2022!

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.

As big a fan as I am of the Air France 777-300ER Business Class cabin I have to admit that I don't really pay too much attention to the Air France/KLM websites because, historically, I haven't found very much use for it (outside of the times where I found a fare elsewhere and then headed over the site to get the fare ticketed). Well, my lack of interest may have been a little foolish because I just discovered that KLM offers a very useful webpage which lists out all the current Business Class fares on offer for travel out of the United States to Europe, Africa, and India.

Comparing Basic Economy: American v Delta v United – Who Offers What?

While all three legacy carriers now offer Basic Economy fares not all the offerings are the same (in fact there are some notable differences between the 3 airlines), so it's worth knowing which airlines offers what. With that in mind, I've read through the information on Basic Economy fares provided by the three legacy carriers and put the pertinent pieces into the tables below. Hopefully these will allow readers to compare what each airline offers and highlight areas where one airline is better than the other(s).

Which Delta Credit Cards Override Basic Economy Rules?

The introduction of Basic Economy fares by the US legacy carriers has ushered in a new era of fare unbundling and benefit stripping as the airlines attempt to nickel and dime as many passengers as is physically possible. The degree to which Basic Economy fares strip out passenger benefits varies from airline to airline but they all inconvenience passengers in one way or another. Holding airline status or the right credit card can go a long way to mitigating some of these inconveniences and making the whole Basic Economy experience a little more tolerable.

Delta Moves To Curb Fake Service & Support Animals On Board

If you ask US road warriors to list out the things that annoy them the most when they fly most of them will put unruly fake support animals down somewhere on their list.  Because the Air Carriers Access Act requires airlines to provide in-cabin travel for for service and support animals without charge, the number of animals seen onboard domestic flights had ballooned out of proportion and a lot of us suspect that a large percentage of these animals are neither genuine service animals or genuine support animals.

Why I Don’t Mind Delta’s Ridiculous $250,000 Credit Card Spend Requirement For A MQD...

Delta is the only one of the 3 legacy airlines that offers customers the chance to have the spend requirement (Medallion Qualification Dollars or MQD) for top-tier status waived.

In the latest set of updates one of Delta's routes to Europe is noticeably absent from the schedules and there has been no word from Delta as to why this may be.
