Another Reminder of Why Delta Air Lines Does Not Have to Give Notice of SkyMiles Redemption Increases

“We should keep in mind this is following on the heels of the recent price jump from 50,000 to 62,500 to 70,000 and now to 85,000 for a one-way trip to Europe in business class just over the past few years”, according to this article pertaining to the latest increase in SkyMiles redemptions for partner airline awards as written by René de Lambert of Renés Points. “The really frustrating part is what Delta SkyMiles team is best at — no advanced notice. They tell no one! Now as some point out they can do this at will because it is in the T&C but that does not make it any less reprehensible or shameful. The other major problem with this disgusting change is finding Level 1 Delta awards is VERY hard. Finding partner awards has been reasonably easy.”

Why This Boeing 747-451 Airplane Crossed the Road

A Boeing 747-451 crossed the road — more specifically, Woolman Place and Toffie Terrace at the northern edge of the international airport which serves the greater Atlanta metropolitan area — on Saturday, April 30, 2016 to its new permanent home: a site on the grounds of the Delta Flight Museum; and that event was teased in this article which I wrote the next day.

I was fortunate to have been at the Delta Flight Museum earlier today, Tuesday, March 28, 2017 for the official grand opening of the Boeing 747-451 to the public — and…

Tail of a Delta Boeing 757 Lands in Cobb County — On Purpose

I was fortunate to be invited to the open house of SunTrust Park — which is the official new baseball stadium of the Atlanta Braves starting next month — earlier today; and one of the features outside of the ballpark is the tail of a Boeing 757-232 aircraft which was once operated by Delta Air Lines.

One Reason Why You Might Not Want to Upgrade to Frontier Airlines The WORKS

“I haven’t flown with Frontier Airlines, but I consider them a viable option when I’m looking for an affordable flight. My first Frontier flight will probably be to Denver so I can take advantage of their free lift ticket at Copper Mountain! While researching Frontier’s pricing, I came across the Frontier Airlines the WORKS upgrade package. Basically, the WORKS lets you bundle together a bunch of options to save money compared to if you bought them all individually. So, the question is, should you upgrade to Frontier Airlines the WORKS?”

I also have not flown as a passenger aboard an airplane operated by Frontier Airlines; but a lift ticket at Copper Mountain costs $150.00 for the day — meaning that…

More Computer System Issues at Delta Air Lines?

I just received word moments ago that passengers had to manually be checked in to board an airplane at Raleigh-Durham International Airport because — according to my source — “nothing is working.”

There is no word yet as to whether or not this is an isolated issue; but as I get more information, I intend to report it.

Please stay tuned…
