For those who have stayed at the Waikoloa recently, are the TVs smart TVs? We are wondering if we can stream Amazon Prime and Netflix in the room without having to purchase special cords to connect...

Politeness is the key. Many years ago, my flight out of Atlanta was delayed and I barely made my international connection in first. I very politely asked the FA if there was anything she could do to...

It was a DL ticket.

I called the Diamond line and the agent checked me out and back in again. It didn’t fix the problem, nor did she know what the problem was. By then, there were zero seats open...

It's showing the same on both the app and the desktop version of the upgrade list. And I have had my comfort plus seat assignments since booking the trip a couple months ago.

No. It's a regular coach fare and I already received an upgrade to economy comfort at booking due to my status.

Not on Upgrade List until Activated by Gate Agent?

I checked into my flight online this morning about 10 to 12 hours in advance. I'm not on the upgrade list, and instead, it's showing this message when I check the list:

Your name will not appear...

I hope you're right. Based on these changes, the Reserve card is pretty worthless for day to day spending now. It doesn't include the bonus categories and they dropped threshold bonuses for hitting...

Is there a way to check GUC availability before you select your Diamond benefits? I won't want to select GUCs unless I know there are dates when I can make them work for a specific trip I have in...

Domesticated tigers should be allowed on a plane too. It's still unproven that they attack at a higher rate than miniature poodles. Just because tigers are highly likely to kill you when they...

I've had the same problem with Regional Upgrade Certificates. I can't remember the last time there was any inventory at the time of booking to use one for a confirmed first class seat. Instead,...

I called AMEX about the offer some received in the past to earn an extra MQM bonus offer by reaching $90K in spend. The agent said there are no such offers at this time. Perhaps they will offer one...

True, but I won't be buying $30,000 in plane tickets before the end of the year. If I was doing that, I wouldn't need the MQD waiver. Still, it's a good suggestion to be sure I put all Delta tickets...

Maximize Value of AMEX Spend for Delta Diamond Waiver?

I'm about to hit $220,000 in spend on Delta Skymiles Amex cards -- 2 Plats (personal and business) and 2 Reserve (personal and business). This will exhaust all of my opportunities on the current...

I got banned back in the first ever bluebird purge. Since then, I haven't had time to engage in or research other manufactured spending options. At the risk of offending those who more religiously...

I can only assume Proudelitist is just having fun stirring up the board. "[My opinion] is better" is pure posting gold, but probably not in the manner intended if it was a serious statement. A...

I doubt the guy was actually Sky Priority, so your post has taught me an important lesson. Don't give more information than necessary so a liar won't learn what to lie about. If I find myself in a...

Obviously if you spend the necessary MQDs directly with Delta, the card spend issue is irrelevant. I was simply wondering what others who historically topped off from Plat to Diamond through the...

I've spent $112K on my Delta cards this year, but I'm stopping. I won't reach $250K without trying to do manufactured spending, which I don't have the time to do. This change has already cost Delta...

You are 100% incorrect. The reader is spitting out a new boarding pass based on what the gate agent did on the computer. GAs have the ability to, and unfortunately have, manipulated upgrades in...

Yeah, it takes an eternity for the scanner to print out 6 little pieces of paper with new seat assignments for upgraded passengers as they board. :rolleyes:

Only the app or the airport screens overhead too? If this is how Delta displays their list, they are just begging for complaints. Why give incorrect information that's only going to tick people off?
