why won't app populate my calendar?

All - did a search, nothing turned up. Current iPhone app won't populate calendar on iPad, tells me I need to enable privacy settings. AA and BA apps have no problem populating, my settings already allow for this. Thoughts on a workaround (other than going old-school and TYPING the itinerary in)?

Maybe the iphone is using apple maps to get directions on how to send the info to your ipad?

Just to be sure...you've got the following?

Settings -> Privacy -> Calendars -> Fly Delta <ON>

It that is not set, on the iphone 5 i get the "This app does not have access to your calendars".

Have no issue otherwise. Possibly close the app and restart? Restart your phone?

That will open your calendar and have the info auto-populated. You can change the appointment details as you desire...and save.

It will now be on your calendar.
That's precisely what's not working. App tells me privacy settings need to be adjusted, but they are configured correctly and apps of other airlines have no such difficulty. If someone has an iPhone or iPad and an existing Delta res, can they successfully populate?

This is all on my phone. When I look at the tablet...there isn't an entry for Delta in the Calendar privacy/access.

i wonder if this is because it's an iphone app running on the ipad?

That's what I'm wondering, though a colleague encountered the same issue on iPhone 5 running iOS 6. There's no on/off with privacy, rather apps that request access (like British Airways) are shown. But no Delta. So the solution in prior post didn't help.

Same calendar issue....none of solutions offered worked.

I'm running current version (1.7.4) of Fly Delta iPhone app on my iPhone 4S running current IOS version (6.0.1). I've rebooted and reinstalled the app. Still, when I pull up one of my trips and tell it to add to calendar, it tells me to enable access in my privacy settings for my calendar. When I go there it shows the apps that do have access (no Fly Delta) and says that these are the applications that have requested access to my calendar. And I believe that's the protocol.....the app will ask for access to your calendar, your location, or whatever. This capability used to work properly....now it doesn't. Any other ideas? Thx And, you can save the anti apple comments....this app will go first!

Ever since I've upgrade to iOS6, I can no longer access my calendar as the person above, I cannot go to privacy and try and add FlyDelta either as there us not way I see to do this. There is not prompt for me to do it.
Please advise.
Thanks

Same issue with me and the versions listed with the Delta app/iOS6. Used to work great, seems like a bug fix/calendar permission request issue with the Delta app. Please advise, somebody.

After Posting about my frustrations with the Delta app, I also decided to Tweet Delta about fixing their app!
I figured, what the Heck, right?
I've found that they DO seem to respond to respond to a more public outcry.
And maybe this worked, and maybe it was just timing.
But whatever the case: YAY!
Delta 2.o
THANKS!
Nonetheless.
we might start tweeting about other issues en mass?
