Last week I flew United and it is Delta miles that have posted first.
I was stunned to get from Newark-Chicago Friday morning only delayed half an hour despite the air traffic control disruption in Chicago. Even more stunned coming back to have my first one-time domestic United flight of the year.
Today, into my inbox, Delta offered 2,000 miles for recent flight disruptions. I haven’t been on Delta metal this month. Classy gesture. I did double-check there wasn’t some fine print waiving compensation for delays. No fine print and all above board.
Reminds me of some surprises they have done in the past like extra miles for being in a middle seat, or waiving cancellation fees I have heard reported from others.
Delta clearly likes my wife better, she got 5,000 and hasn’t flown them since July. She is a Platinum, I am a Diamond.
Readers, did you receive an “Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining?” Any different offers?
