Hilton Breakfast Credit Still Temporary
Yesterday I shared with you that Hilton had confirmed a rumor that had been swirling, the switch to breakfast credits was a permanent thing. This was confirmed by their social media team. In the article I shared some of my skepticism on the confirmation since social media teams are not always the most reliable. I did lean towards it being accurate though because of the rumors, the fact that the change made a lot of sense and was predicted from the start and because the Hilton staff came in strong with the confirmation. Here is a screen shot of the confirmation of the change:
In order to be thorough John also reached out to the Hilton media team for a double confirmation sharing the article and findings with them. He heard back late last night that the information shared by their social media team was inaccurate. The credit is still only expected to be extended through 2022 at this time.
A couple of things here. This is no way means it won’t be a long term change and that could in fact still be the plan. They are only publicly committing to this until the end of 2022 though. As you can see there was no claim that they would switch back to a full breakfast benefit starting in 2023. Originally the change was only supposed to be through the 2021 calendar year and has already been extended once for longer than it was initially supposed to run. This could end up being an American Airlines rolling delay or they could switch back once the pandemic calms down and staffing levels turn back to normal.
Which way do you think it will go? Let me know in the comments section.
