about time! I am flying out tomorrow so now I can test it out!
Just downloaded the update and now have my boarding pass for tomorrow's flight in the Passbook app. Interestingly though it doesn't have my departure time, just the "Boarding time".

seems to work good, has a nice clean and modern look, just like the new website, and I just seamlessly added my boarding passes over to passbook for my flight tomorrow!

so far so good Delta!

Love how the design matches with the website now. Can't wait to use it to its full capability in 2 months..

I'm also happy to see you can now view the seat map for both F and Y while booked on a Y ticket. Something you can do on the website, but couldn't do from the previous app.

I don't really understand about the passbook part - I can't see a major value-add over the eboarding pass already available via the old app. Can anyone enlighten me to the benefit of passbook vs. the app?

Appears as though they are still working out some very minor kinks but overall a vast improvement over the prior app. Any screenshots of the passbook integration?

Delta iPhone app v2.0 now passbook compatible

Sitting in LAX right now waiting to board but update the app earlier tonight with no issues and everything ported over. Still exploring the changes but looks like a good improvement finally...

Passbook integration update... Had to add each boarding pass individually then once in passbook you can flip between the boarding passes. In the lower right hand corner of the BP there is an info button that has more details about the flight such as departure time and links to status. There is also a trash can button on the alternate info screen for removing the BP. I just boarded LAX-MEM with BP 1 of 2 using the passbook one (there are also the original non-passbook BPs in the v2.0 app) and the scanner seemed to respond quicker than normal. The barcode is smaller by about 20-30% I'd say between the passbook and app BPs.

Can't upload a screen shot at the moment but will do so later once I can blur out some personal data

New app looks nice, like the website. So far seems pretty quick compared to the website.

I like the addition of new features about my account, but here are some errors I'm seeing still:

1. My wallet doesn't contain my certificates (SWU, ECV)
2. My SM Membership Card shows DM through Sep 2016. LOL, I'll take that.
3. Flight search is ridiculously slow. Wonder if Award will ever be added in (LOL)

Wonder how UG WL will work, as overhaul thread talks about how the lists on the old app and web didn't match (with app being more accurate).

Is there a setting to turn on passbook? The app works good but I don't know how to get my boarding pass in to passbook.


Figured it out. Had to recheck in.
