Have trips booked on Delta Air Lines? Keep an eye on your itineraries today. A bunch of flights are affected by what’s colloquially known as #ScheduleChangeSaturday.
Departure and arrival times, flight numbers, aircraft, and seat assignments are in flux today.
One of my upcoming trips is now on its sixth schedule change. I think. I’ve honestly lost track.
If your itinerary changes by 120 minutes you’re eligible to receive a more favorable routing.
To qualify for a complimentary change due to a schedule change, for tickets issued on/after July 30, 2020, for travel that follows the guidelines of the Domestic Contract of Carriage or for tickets issue on/after August 17, 2020, for travel that follows the guidelines of the Canadian and International Contracts of Carriage, the schedule change has to meet one of the following guidelines:
A delay of 120 minutes or more
A change in the routing of a scheduled Delta flight which adds one or more stops to the original itinerary
A change in equipment from Delta Mainline to Delta Connection carrier
Any change that causes a misconnect
If a flight cancels and no comparable or acceptable routing is available within 120 minutes
If your schedule change isn’t quite two hours, it can’t hurt to call Delta and ask for a different itinerary. Though Delta reps don’t seem to have the leeway they once did to make changes. (Which isn’t surprising, considering that some don’t even know about the Status Accelerator but hey…)
Make sure to jump on that — especially if you strategically select where you sit (bulkheads, exit rows, lucky numbers, etc.) before someone else takes your prized seat.
