Delta Matches Change Fee Increases of United and US Airways
Predictable and unavoidable, don’t you know
That the lower change fee policy’s gotta go
‘Cause Delta wants to profit as much as it can
Raisin’ those ancillary fees is the plan
In earlier days they flew Delta Air Lines
But some say that no one saw the signs
Of benefits enhanced and restrictions increased
And higher fees; the good ol’ days have ceased
Repeat chorus several more times
I offer no apology to re-writing the lyrics to Delta Dawn, which is the title of a song originally recorded and co-written by Alex Harvey in 1971:
The above video is not the original version of the song, which can be found on the album The Songwriter by Alex Harvey on iTunes. The most famous version was performed by Helen Reddy and also covered by Tanya Tucker, both in 1972.
Once again, this song parody is simply a different way to spread the news pertaining to the increase in change fees on Delta Air Lines from $150.00 to $200.00 in some markets and from $250.00 to $300.00 in other markets, matching similar increases in change fees of United Airlines and US Airways…
I had said that if you want for me to stop doing these song parodies, tell the airlines to stop raising their change fees. Apparently you and the airlines love my song parodies, which must be the main reason as to why they keep raising their change fees — because both you and they want for me to write more song parodies.
Yeah — that’s it…
