Delta Air Lines announced today that it will borrow $6.5 billion backed by its frequent-flyer program, SkyMiles. Other airlines such as American and United Airlines has already used their loyalty programs to back loans during the coronavirus crisis.
Delta currently has 11,200 active pilots, but will need roughly 9,450 pilots for the summer 2021 schedule. That is expected to be the peak flying period for the next year or so.
There is a new rule for what masks are appropriate when on board a Delta flight. The airline released a statement this week saying that masks with exhaust valves are no longer allowed.
Wondering what the Delta boarding order is so you can board sooner? Want to get priority boarding? These are the boarding groups & how to move up in line.
Passengers who indicate they have an underlying condition that prevents them from wearing a mask are required to complete a "Clearance-To-Fly" process before being permitted to travel, for everyone's safety.
Delta has launched another fare sale today with a mix of domestic routes listed in the promotion page. The prices listed are for round trip main cabin flights and start at only 10,000 miles.
The new Delta Message Us feature has been completely lackluster so far. I have no idea why Delta tried to fix a problem where there wasn't one.
As travel demand has started to pick up Delta has added more flights to its schedule. Now Delta has also opened up more Delta Sky Clubs with additional layers of protection to keep customers safe while traveling.
