Can't get old website any more. But you can still get old fare search (for now) at the following link -- https://www.delta.com/flight-search/search-results

Angry Any way to FORCE old Delta .com page to work?

Is there ANY way to make the old fast and working home page to come up and not the cartoon slow and horrid page to appear?

I thank you SO much if any fantastic FTer can help me find a way! :-:

Try changing countries at the bottom of the page. I switched to Australia and the old home page popped up.
Pretty much any country (other than the US) gets the old page.

Oddly enough however, those of us who actually use it everyday because we actually fly rather than just using to it post b&m sessions do not have a lot of issues with the page. Maybe it is time for some folks to switch airlines if this is what upsets them sooooo much.

I would be more inclined to help and feel sorry if you didn't start out trash talking.

Good Luck, but with an attitude of "shoot people before they do anything" I doubt much is going to make you happy!

Fair enough. Removed. Any yet you made my point.

As to the fix above, sad to say I have to do it every time I visit. Log out and it reverts back to new page.

Preach. The site is here to stay, and it's way better than the old. Why B&M about everything Delta does, especially when it is a clear improvement to the site meant to make it more appealing and accessible to everyone (it's responsive, so they are clearly retiring m.delta.com)?

I'm curious what hardware and browser you're using after seeing this. I didn't notice anything when they switched, aside from the new look.

I just did some performance testing and only saw a difference ranging from 84 to 235 ms in load time between old and new over the course of a few test runs, using Firefox and Chrome on Win7, between the new version and the old (accessed via the Australia trick mentioned by SFO777)

OP was probably using government-subsidized-DL-cheerleader hardware and the DL-can-do-no-wrong-and-the-ME3-are-evil-pigs browser.

I have the search page bookmarked https://www.delta.com/flight-search/book-a-flight . At least with that page, its not so cartoonish looking. Plus the date selection part is still split into two distinct parts.

Ooh responsive interface would be a huge win. I use mobile browser a fair bit to do SDCs and stuff and am always annoyed at having to load the mobile site then click "full html" and then pinch/zoom around.

If you have a semi-modern browser and you actually use the advanced search a lot your navigation bar should remember, there's really no need for a bookmark.

I basically only use that page if I'm doing a multi-city trip (which is not very often) and I typed "book" and it came right up.
