Encouraging news broke the other day: Delta bringing back economy meals on select flights. This enhancement by Delta is, of course, a stark contrast to American and United's current race to the bottom. … [Read more...] about Delta Bringing Back Economy Meals on Select Flights
I'm a little late to the party, but yesterday Delta announced a new business class product: Delta One Suites. Delta says its new business class products will be the first all suite business class product around. They're certainly the only domestic business class product I've seen with doors. But are they as innovative as Delta is claiming? Comparing the Delta … [Read more...] about Delta One Suites
Finally matching certain competitors, American expands free inflight entertainment selection for Main Cabin guests. This announcement, of course, come hot on the heals of a similar announcement made by Delta a couple months ago. Both airlines, in fact, will offer free in-flight entertainment in all cabins, on all domestic flights with equipped aircraft. Content will be … [Read more...] about American Expands Free Inflight Entertainment
Flying economy in the U.S. has long meant no meal service. Period. However, that trend has slowly begun to change this year. Up until recently, Hawaiian Airlines was the only domestic carrier still offering complimentary meals in all cabins. Then, back in February, American announced that it would offer meals on Hawaii flights. Recently, rumors have been emerging about … [Read more...] about Delta Adding Meals to Hawaii

As a native Minnesotan and some-time golfer, Hazeltine is one of those courses that one never imagines they will have the opportunity to play. It just seems too far out of reach to golf at a private course that hosts major … [Read more...] about Golfing with Delta and American Express at Hazeltine National Golf Club
Delta made another unpopular change to their Skymiles earlier this week and slapped the Skyteam alliance in the face during the process. There are also unfounded rumors that they called Skyteam fat, but I have yet to hear this from a credible source. I don't need to go into too much depth on what happened, because many bloggers that I read have already covered it in great … [Read more...] about Delta Ruins Everything Again… And Why I Don’t Really Care for Now
Last week we talked about domestic airlines in the United States, so this week I thought we would focus on international long haul travel. If there is one thing I learned from talking with other frequent travelers in person, it's that everyone has a different idea of how they like to approach an international flight. Some people want to travel the world in the cheapest way … [Read more...] about Monday Poll: Choosing an International Flight

While perusing the Delta Website this morning, updating personal information and planning for future trips, I noticed a new feature on the site that looks interesting; the ability to tell them your Twitter Handle. While this sounds good in theory, I am deathly afraid of giving them this information at this point in time.
